Before Milhões de Festa there was the return of Thug Unicorn to Lisbon, following a concert by the almighty Ghettoven and his gang of hotties.

Spent the whole day rollin’ with my girl bb Ani who I hope one day will come and just live in Porto already ~_~ ♥

We saw this blinged out car so…

Pictures, duh.

Ani was such a tropper! All her friends ditched her, but she still partied her ass off with us ^_^ And then there was the stage invasion. First it was just these two guys;



Oh look, cool. These two guys are having fun onstage with us. That’s nice.


Oh, so now some other friends joined them. That’s also cool.


Oh, hey, damn so many people getting up on stage all of a sudden. Easy with the butt-shaking fellas, you’re tipping our drinks over expensive material over here! Heeey


This is getting a little out of hand. Security?



F1000018Everything is back to normal and everyone’s havin’ a good time without damaging the material :3 victoly!

What do you get after an excessive four-day festival where you also happen to perform with the best people – other than massive exhaustion? A warm, fuzzy feeling of love, friendship and accomplishment.

Also, crappy pictures of your lovely friends ♥

Can’t wait for next year’s Milhões de Festa :(

This next Friday the 23rd of May, starting at 19:30h there’s CONS — a brand new event thrown together by Converse that perfectly conveys the lifestyle associated with the brand.

In this fabulous event they’ll have skaters, photographers, artists and other agents that somehow contribute to urban culture. This is the second of a series of projects developed to inspire an entirely new generation of creative spirits associated with skate and street culture through art, photography and music.

Also, Throes+The Shine will be playing. Have you checked out this gorgeous video that André Tentugal directed for them? Casting and styling by yours truly ♥

Don’t miss it!I will have to because I will be thuggin’ it out with my lovely ladies from Thug Unicorn, but if I wasn’t I TOTALLY would be there because it’s gonna be AWESOME.

image007P.S. I’m gonna make an effort to update this blog more often, I swear!
P.P.S. I could really use some new sneakers.

2013 has definitely been a year of great highs and lows. It’s scary that it has already gone by, a whole year, just like that. Whoa, scary!

Even if the bad bits suck major balls, and even though what I’m about to say is super cliché, I do think they are the best way to learn and grow. Hopefully I did, and I’m hoping 2014 will bring a bunch of beautiful blossoming opportunities to kick ass in all the things I’m doing or plan to be doing soon. I hope I have the chance to take more cool pictures this following year as well, because 2013 was not the most productive year in that aspect — I’m totally to blame for that tough.

Looking forward for 2014 and kinda hoping it doesn’t go by as fast because that really freaks me out. Unless 2014 turns out to be super sucky, in that case the Universe can fast forward it.

I’ve been meaning to share these pictures for ages, so Imma do that right now!

Hopefully I will be able to travel more often to pretty places next year, and carry a decent camera with me. This year I went to Madrid (which was fun, short and cold), Berlin (which was a nightmare, for personal reasons), London (which was way too short, I wanna go back soon), and in these pictures you can see Peniche, Nazaré, Óbidos, Lisbon, and we were also in Évora and Extremoz.

Have a brilliant 2014 everyone! ♥

Last week I went to the beautiful Estudios Sá da Bandeira to take new pictures for their website after their extreme make-over.

This recording studio is loaded with sexy vintage gear and has a genuine 70’s rock’n’roll vibe; it will get your creative juices flowin’ for sure.

If you’re in a band or in the music business you should definitely check it out – their rates are pretty inviting and the staff is super skilled in all sorts of things: from recording and playing instruments to baking cookies. Seriously.

The king of classic sneakers, Converse, has a new rock’n’roll inspired collection for Fall/Winter 2013 –  Rock Craftsmanship.

I guess if there’s a sneaker that can totally pull off rock’n’roll considering all of its history, well, that’s the Converse sneaker. Using luxurious leathers, grungy finishing and polished details available in the trendiest colors.

I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that the world is saturated of spikes and studs; recently we’ve seen them all over our clothes, outerwear, shoes, accessories, I’m pretty sure I’ve even seen studded underwear guys. Come on. There is no way studded panties can be comfy, right?

But Converse managed to do studs and spikes skillfully and tastefully, they even did this sort of studded gradient that looks pretty neat. I’d rock those.

And regarding the spikes, they did these badass stegosaurus chucks.

The way I see it, they could play Michael Jackson in the videoclip for “Bad”, if said video was to be reenacted by sneakers.Chuck Taylor All Star Studded Jet Black Mono 140009C

And in this day and age, how can you possibly be a sneaker brand and not have a platform? Especially when you’re Converse. So there you go! I want them, even if I have an embarrassing lack of balance – I can’t even pull off 4cm platforms without twisting my ankles twice in five minutes, true story.Chuck Taylor All Star Platform Fiery Coral 540259C Chuck Taylor All Star Platform White 540262C

Baby Honky approves y’all!
