I used to be very urban and mostly loved visiting big cities, with their museums and outstanding architecture (still love that!) But people change – hopefully evolve Changing ways – now I love nature, too. Above all, places with “water”. So in January I went to some places in South America, and was so amazed by what I saw! Cozy little cities, waterfalls, lakes, nice churches!
I was really impressed! Let’s see some pictures! And why not some comfy outfits
Old railway tracks, simply fantastic! The sunset made the colors amazing – the photo is the way it was taken, no filters! At Vale do Contestado
January 1st – New year, with a new post!Welcome 2015! I hope you all had a fantastic new year’s eve and that we all have a beautiful new year! Last Monday I read this beautiful quote – that we have 365 new pages now – and I ad: to write a beautiful story, adventurous, lovely, successful and all that you wish 2015 to be! I don’t really make new year’s resolutions, but I may have some plans 2014 was a good year to me, so I wish 2015 to be even better!
I remember having answered a new year’s meme some years ago, so why not now again Here you can see my Christmas photoshoot for Stylishly Beautiful – I liked to do it so much that I prepared another one for the New Year That was the dress I wore on Christmas anyway
Dec 17th – I had a very busy November and December won’t be very different! So I have many new pictures to share, but I just want to have a day “really” off to organize everything! In the meantime, this post is still on – describing trips didn’t end yet! Hope you “forgive” me for the lack of posts now!
Bye busy October – welcome November, with the birthday of one of my lovely brothers A nice start with a nice interview – or so I think:) Hope you like it, too!
2nd Oct bad start with KLM airlines‘ huge delay to London, leading to lost luggage. KLM didn’t even offer water. They said they’d bring the bag to my door, which is right, but made me collect it. I told I’d fly to Dublin soon. Nearly missed the flight because of collecting the bag! Finally, after 8 days without going out (9 days with a thin top on), I got it. Lost “museums” time, all ruined. Solutions? The reply: “we won’t write in the usual 10 day-time”. I’m still waiting! I felt awful, even had to go to the doctor.
Wonderful Rio de Janeiro! Among other things, I seek historical events. The World Cup (not my 1st one) triggered so uplifting emotions! I love pics from planes – that is Amsterdam. Me after 25 hours flying and waiting. No makeup, tired, but things were still OKish, so why not a smiley selfie!
Things got better! I did have to buy makeup, face lotion, flats, something warm, even a hand luggage bag – they had mine with everything in. I got 2 ponchos – I wore ponchos as a child My granny gave me a green one, I loved it. I gave it another try! Reminds me of my sweet granny:)
Oct 10th, 2014 – Finally I could go out, to a museum, met some friends! The “urgent” makeup. I did buy warm ponchos while KLM retained my bag – the choice was because that purple one, from Germany, was in the missing suitcase! Finally I could wear it! So warm!

I’m posting just once a month here (please go to Stylishly Beautiful for regular posts), but because many nice things happened, I’ll post again soon So this was the 1st part of the summary
And, as usual, I cooked
Avocado dish, my favorite food – that was with asparagus, cherry tomatoes and penne basil salad, my take on a Chilean dish called Palta Reina that I learned from a friend some years ago – it’s now on Vegetabible page. Then squash risotto, I love it!
To finish the summary, I posted many quotes (some that I wrote) on facebook:
P.S. – For my lovely Dutch readers, I have nothing personal against KLM. I have flown with them before – just that now what happened was a real pain! There’s much more than what I wrote here, believe me! It was really bad.
