Five Questions for My Favorite Bloggers
Who are you?
A self-confessed shopaholic with a passion for food, fashion, travel & family. Although my love for food & fashion are a constant tug of war, as I have been enjoying too much of one, which means I cannot enjoy the other as much (can no longer fit most of my clothes)! I named my blog after one my favourite Brazilian ‘sweets’ made of condensed milk & chocolate.

Where are you?
I’ve lived in a few places, starting off in London (UK) (from 0-11 mths of age), then Rio de Janeiro/Niteroi, RJ (Brazil) (first few years), Sao Jose dos Campos, SP (Brazil) (most of my life), Brentwood, LA (USA) (for 1 yr only when I was six), back to SJC, then Cambridge (UK) (2 yrs), but now…I am in the land of kangaroos & koalas.
What is the concept behind your blog?
I’m afraid my blog doesn’t have a ‘concept’ per se’, I just started it so I could share my love & interest for all things beautiful, fashion, in particular. It was mainly to share my thoughts on it, but then some readers started asking for outfit pictures, and funnily, those are the ones people are most interested in…
When you are not blogging, what else do you enjoy doing?
Reading the very long list of blogs I love, shopping (mostly online), throwing/attending dinner parties (LOVE food), travelling (little day trips to winery regions nearby, and occasional trips interstate help tie me over until I can travel overseas), reading, and…singing (in the car, or when no one’s home, haha).

More importantly… what are you wearing? :)
I’m typing this during my lunchbreak at work (and am off to classes after this, starting a new course today, so excited!), so I’m wearing (sorry this is so long-winded):
*Alannah Hill (Australian designer) black speckled ¾ turtleneck knit with slightly puffed sleeves
*Cue (Australian high-street) black pinafore with empire waist & bubble hem (following on from your comment, I was congratulated twice by 2 separate people on separate occasions, on my ‘pregnancy’, despite not being pregnant...one of them was a tough bikie-looking guy too, but was so sweet, haha!)
*Leona Edmiston (Australian designer) Pins opaque stockings in onyx
*Burberry Prorsum Prussian blue military style cocoon shaped quilted trench coat, which is double breasted, with buttoned epaulettes, a high collar and two rows of buttons, which end at the waist with inverted pleats below.
*Burberry red & cream alpaca fine knit scarf (gift from my little sister)
*Burberry Manor bag in a fire engine red
*Currently in Marc Jacobs ballet flats, but have Stella McCartney patent wedges to change into (in the car) for my classes later today.
