VELVET


Hi guuurrrls ! From time to time it happens that I find new clothes on my dressing. Does it happen to you too ? Well, it was the case with this dress. In fact, I bought it months ago at Zara but never wore it. I almost forgot it when the other day I was thinking about what I would wear for a pre-birthday dinner... Then I stumbled upon this one which kind of was perfect for the occasion. It's a little black velvet dress. I decided to accessorize with my most than beloved YSL little bag that I've been wearing a lot lately and peachy lipstick that brought some color to my outfit. What do you think ? Xo xo

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME 🎈🎁



Hello my cutie pies ! You guys might have seen on my Instagram stories that Sunday was my birthday🎂!! My lovely friend Gabriela aka Gabi came to my house for the occasion and it was my pleasure to spend my birthday with her. Because of my schedule as I am having some lessons about digital strategy in Geneva, I couldn't really party all night long but I can't complain as I had the opportunity to spend some quality time with great people even before my day. So guys, I think I might introduce Gabi to you since it's her first appearance here on the blog. Actually we are friends since years now as we met the first time during our economic studies. We always have a lot of fun and laughs when we are together and as you can see her cute baby bump, she's waiting a little boy that will come out soon to our world. You can imagine how excited we are to see her little angel face ;) ! Ohh.. I am sure the baby loved tasting my birthday cake which was a bordelaise à la framboise by the way! Yummy ;)

PS: Don't just count your years, make your years count !

TWILLY D'HERMES


Hi babes ! Today I am in a joyful mood which is the perfect occasion to talk to you about this joyful scent. Twilly d'Hermès is the new perfume launched for the free, audacious and connected girls who impose their own rythm. I mean, just like us ! Christine Nagel, the house's perfumer worked on notes of ginger, tuberose and sandalwood to create the perfect classic mix and get that woody, fresh and mysterious smell. I am totally addicted to its lightness. The bottle has such a beautiful shape knotted by a silken thread - a Twilly as mine in the wrist ! The perfume is available at different sizes at all Hermès boutiques and all approved perfume shops. So what are you waiting for to get yours ? Have a great start of the week my loves ! Xo xo 💋💋

ORIGINAL


An other pair of sunglasses that I had a crush on are those red Ray-Ban. I can tell you that I have a thing for round shaped sunnies because it gives that "je-ne-sais-quoi" to the look... kind of some John Lenonn vibes ya know.. ;) ! I wore them for an afternoon stroll in the city with friends and went for a casual outfit. I love trying different shapes of sunglasses and I am pretty lucky that my face matches almost all the kinds. By the way, if you have any doubt about your face shape and which kind of eyewear is the most adapted to you depending on it, please check out the Zalando Sunglasses Guide !

GUERLAIN'S SUMMER 2017


Good Morning my loves ! Today I want to present you some products of the current summer collection by Guerlain. You all know how much I love this brand and I couldn't miss sharing with you guys my opinion on these treasures. We all love excellent quality products that look goods.

First things first, the Terracotta Sun Trio which I wear not only during summer but all over the year. Whether it is to warm the completion as a bronzer or for an easy chic contouring, it's just perfect and smells incredibly good ! My shade is "Natural" which is the middle one but you can find lighter or darker depending on your skin tone ladies. 

Kiss Kiss are the ultra gorgeous lipsticks. They're creamy, shaping and hydrating.  It gives the lips a beautiful color perfect for summertime. These ones are in the shades "Orange Peps" and "Orange Fizz" which are amazingly great to enhance your tanned skin. The packaging looks just like a jewel. #SimplyChic

Let's stroll through the Bergamote Calabria from the Aqua Allegoria collection. This eau de toilette is such a vibrant and sunny scent. It's just like I love it for summer. Fresh, floral and fruity at the same time.

Regarding the body, the Terracotta Huile Sous Le Vent is a nourishing dry oil for face body and hair. But I love to use it on my body only since I use more specific products on my hair. It moisturizes and penetrates into the skin without leaving my body oily and that's what we love girls !! Isn't it ? The bonus : It's Tan booster !! 

And now, the biggest discovery for my legs that I'm love with is the Terracotta Jolies Jambes. I was kind of surprised on how this product works. It's a smoothing and perfecting lotion that will gives flawless legs (like a foundation but for legs) with a sun-kissed effect ! And the wonderful thing is that few minutes after applying the product, it won't transfer on my clothes or when I sit down. Oh my godness, it's is worth trying it guys ! My shade is "Medium-Brunettes".

Last but not least, the Météorites Baby Glow Touch. It's a luminizer stick for the highlight of the face or for an easy strobing. It depends on my mood but I usually apply it on my cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose, on the inner corners of my eyes, onto my brow bone and on top of my cupid's bow to bring out and emphasize. There are three colors as you can see and I like to blend out everything together to get a perfect pinkish glow for a doll face result.

That's it folks ! Hope that you'll enjoy reading this article and above all hope it will be useful for you ! Xo xo 💋

*Special thanks to Guerlain for the amazing collection !

SEA BREEZE


Hello my sweetie pies ! I don't know why but I've never released these pictures since my last trip to Brazil. As you already know, it was so nice there. I could re-see a big part of my family and enjoy the amazing tropical weather. This country is so unique and has such a great energy that I always feel that time flies really quick. When I am in Brazil I love wearing national beachwear brands. I just think that they rock with all the colors and prints. One of my favorite brands is Agua de Coco. OMG, when I go to their boutique I just wanna buy everything they have literally. You guys might check their website so that you'll understand what I am saying. I don't know if you saw but the super model Isabeli Fontana who get married last year by the beach wore one wonderful Agua de coco dress designed specially for her. It was overwhelming. I mean, this brand literally rocks. I am not getting paid to talk about them at all ! I just wanted to share with you my crush (hihi) !! These pictures were shot at the Best Western Solar in Porto de Galinhas and now that I am in Switzerland and I am writing this article, I am missing so much that location. I just think that tropical is my vibe ;) ! Hope you guys will enjoy reading this article ! Xo xo

LAGO DI COMO


It was my first time in Como and I spent a whole weekend there. It's so pretty and close to Switzerland that I am sure I'll come back more often. I love discovering new Italian landscapes and this one is overwhelming. It's incredible how green the water looks just like emerald green. As each time I am in Italy and as a tradition I had to indulge myself with a gelato. OMG, I can't help, but "fiore di latte" is the best flavor on earth ! Don't you agree ? That day the weather was pleasant, not too hot and not cold, so I went for destroyed denim and striped shirt with my beloved Gucci shoes. It was such a nice walk through Como.

HERMESMATIC


You guys have seen that recently I was lucky enough to discover in avant-première the #HERMESMATIC concept by Hermès. In fact, you can bring your old Carré and give it an update in their DIP DYE machines. There are three available colors. You still have few days this week to have a new accessory at your wardrobe. So hurry up and bring a new life to your Hermès scarves for free. I am sure you'll love it as much as I did ! Xo xo

LA VIE EN ROSE


Yep, it's spring and how amazing is that ? Waking up with the sun shining through the windows and the trees blooming outside is spectacular. It brings me a bunch of positivity to start my day. Wise people say that nothing is better than the simplicity of life and I totally agree. When I was in Paris, the weather was fantastic for walking outside and for my outfit of the day I chose something casual, comfy and stylish at the same time. I wore black pants with ruffled pink top, trench coat because it's not that hot yet, pink sneakers and sunglasses of course. What kind of activities do you guys love during spring ? Tell me !! Xo Xo

TRAVEL WITH TGV LYRIA


One of the best thing of living in Switzerland is the easy way of travelling by train to another european country. In a few hours we can be in a different place. Most of time, when I go to Paris I use the TGV Lyria services. Not only it's super easy to book a train ticket but the fact that I could book a taxi for my arrival in Paris with the train manager made everything simpler. During the travel I could optimise my time the best way working on my computer but also relaxing before enjoying my parisian stay. I suggest you guys to check out TGV Lyria's website to discover all the destinations you can visit with them and the available special offers. I am sure you will find a suitable match ! Xo xo

LA TABLE DE PALAFITTE


I have been invited by the Palafitte hotel for a dinner at one of their restaurants "La Table De Palafitte". I must say this restaurant stands out from the crowd in Neuchâtel. Chef David Sauvignet provides an authentic cuisine using the best local produce. I chose the Menu Découverte which was absolutely divine in terms of presentation and taste. It's always great to enjoy a refined menu in an elegant environment. Wish you guys an wonderful day and Bon appétit ! Also don't forget to let me know if you have already tried this restaurant and your opinion about it ! Xo xo

PALAFITTE HOTEL



Hi my lovelies ! Let me tell you about the stunning Palafitte Hotel located in Neuchâtel, a beautiful city in the french part of Switzerland. I always want to share nice advices, spots and ideas here and I am sure you'll love this too. I had the pleasure to spend the best time in this five star hotel which is on water actually. In fact, it's the only hotel in Europe built on stilts and from any point of the room you can have a breathtaking and unbelievable view on the lake and mountains. My room was one of the Lake Pavillon ones and Oh My Goodness, I felt like I was not in Switzerland with the lake under but rather in a tropical summer paradise. I swear that when I was there I had that feeling ! I never thought that I could feel somewhere else in my own city. Unfortunately the water was a bit fresh so I could not dive into it but being there was pure happiness. Thank you so much to the Palafitte Hotel for the warm welcome and kindness !!

FISHNET



This was my outfit for the Guerlain's event last end February. I wanted to wear this dress which is a new one I got from See by Chloé. I love the pink pastel color and the fabric is so comfortable. It's kind of a mid-season look because the dress is more spring and the boots are more winter. And adding fishnet tights just gave a je-ne-sais-quoi to it. By the way, I love so much the combination of nude and black ! Don't you ? Xo xo

LES ESSENTIELS


I love elaborated make-up and I am always so happy when make-up artist do my make-up because I feel different and I can always learn new things from them. AND no matter how good we are doing our own make-up it's never the same as they can do. Right now I am just thinking how it would be perfect to have the Kardashian's make-up crew everyday with me. Don't you agree ? At least and fortunately I can find on the market the products they use. That being said, on a daily basis I prefer neutrals tones because no matter how I will be dressed it will be great. With a neutral make-up, I can easily switch from a day to a night make-up look. For example, by accentuating a little bit more the eyes or simply by changing the lipstick color. Here I am showing few products that I use on a daily basis. This Guerlain palette is astonishing because you can do more than you imagine with. Also, I heard too many great things about this mascara by Lancôme and after trying I can confirm it. The brush provides a perfect and easy application and makes your eyelashes more voluminous and long. When it comes to lipstick, I am more about nudes and pinkish lately. The shade Twig is my favorite color of the moment. It's a pink with a brownish undertone and is not too pale. Regarding my skin I love it to be mate but with a glow and the meteorites by Guerlain will give you that perfect glow ! Hope you'll enjoy reading my advices on my few favorite products and wish you a beautiful day ! Xo xo

TROPICAL BLUSH


Can you feel the heat ? While I was in Brazil, I stayed at my mom's house but decided to spend few days in an other city called "Porto de Galinhas". I stayed at the Best Western Viva Plus Porto de Galinhas. It's a gorgeous and big hotel by the beach. It's such a wonderful place like a tropical paradise that I recommend it to you. I was wearing this Pinko dress the day of my arrival with golden sandals and hat but of course I had a bikini underneath because I just wanted to run into the sea ! Have you guys noticed the bunch of coconuts ? In Brazil you can find it everywhere and it's so easy to drink fresh coconut water... I love it !

HERMÈS WOMEN FALL/WINTER 2017


Hello my loves ! I am happy to share with you the live stream of one of my favorites fashion shows during Paris Fashion Week. I am super anxious to discover the whole new collection ! Xo xo

MON GUERLAIN


Good Morning Everybody ! Yesterday, I had the pleasure to discover in avant-premiere "Mon Guerlain" which is the new Guerlain fragrance for women. Angelina Jolie who is an actress, filmmaker, special envoy of the UN Refugee agency is also the icon of Mon Guerlain. I am totally fascinated about the fact that she is always using her voice and image to help the  humanity and this collaboration is an other proof of that as she has donated her entire  earnings from the campaign to charity. Everything of this partnership between Guerlain and Angelina started in December 2015 in Cambodia where she was directing her film First They Killed My Father. Thierry Wasser, the Guerlain's master perfumer, was inspired by the muse and wanted to create a fragrance that express the notes of woman (choices, emotions and dreams) that embody modern feminity. It represents a multi-faceted, authentic and extraordinary woman. A true modern woman as Angelina who has a successful career, loves and cares about her family and never forgets to use her voice as tool to help and inspire others. I really wanted to spread the news here on Pashionality because not only I felt related to this project and could try this wonderful scent but I also admire Guerlain so much. In addition of keep going such a strong history with the best products that lasts through the centuries, Guerlain always pays attention to the environment and that's why I think that their association with Angelina Jolie is the perfect match. Xo xo

IN THE FOG


This winter is quite eclectic. From sunny to fog days, mild to icy temperatures. It's literally changing so much. In any case it's very important to keep warm. I wore this outfit for a day of shopping. It was cold so I completed my look with this lovely grey beanie that finished my look. I love adding beanies to my outfits because it not only finishes the look but also helps to stay warm. I was in a mood for neutral colors as you can see but added little bit of fantasy with my striped top and cat eye shaped sunglasses. Regarding the boots, I bought them at Fendi last year but I am still in love with them because of the transparent heels. Hope you guys are enjoying my articles ! Have nice day !! Xo xo

YOGI BOOSTER BAR


Nowadays, we all know how important is to take care of our health and everything starts by a good nutrition. Understanding what is great for your body will keep you healthier and you'll consequently feel more energetic, prettier and in such a great mood. I am not that one who wants to spend long time in the cuisine unless I'll have guests at home for diner. But I figured out that is all about educating and organizing ourselves. However, it can be a little more complicated to eat healthy for example when you are travelling a lot. When it's the case for me, I try to check out in advance some nice places where I could eat tasty and healthy food. I completely love to discover new places and try out new things if I can. During my stay at the Lausanne Palace, I had the pleasure to have a healthy lunch at the Yogi Booster Bar in their CBE Concept Spa. It was a delicious vegetarian meal. You guys must try their food out. I really loved the fact that you can also take way and even buy some snacks and natural products to cook at home. It's a complete service in such a healthy way that I really recommend for you guys. I'll let you check out the pictures and do not hesitate to let your comments below ! Xo xo


LAUSANNE PALACE & SPA


Hi Folks ! You might know from my instagram @patricia_do_nascimento that I was invited by the Lausanne Palace to have a luxury lifestyle experience at their hotel. No need to say that I loved staying there and that's why I want to share this with you. This gorgeous hotel is located in Lausanne and it's very well situated. My room was super cozy and beautiful with an amazing view on the lake and mountains. In the end of the day I could see the shades of orange and blue in the sky which was so magical. The bed was so comfy that I didn't want to leave it in the morning but thanks to an energetic breakfast I was ready to start the day. First things first, I had the most relaxing break at their CBE Concept Spa which is pure wellness (sauna, hammam, jacuzzi, massages, fitness room). I can tell you that's the place to be when you need to rest and to treat yourself. Oh, I enjoyed their overwhelming indoor swimming pool from where I could see more than five stars ;) ! 
Regarding food and gastronomy, the Palace has many great restaurants but I'll talk to you about that in an upcoming article. So stay tuned. And I can not forget to thank the hotel's team for their warm welcome and the friendly staff of the hotel for their kindness during my stay. 
That's it my loves, I hope you'll enjoy discovering the Lausanne Palace through Pashionality and if you are in Switzerland and specially in Lausanne I only recommend you to stop by. Even more that it's almost Valentine's day and you will find some nice special offers for this occasion. Have a nice day ! Xo xo

PARADISE


Paradise is the word that defines this place. This beach called "Praia do Paiva" is not very touristic and that's what makes it so unique and wild. You can make a nice walk along the beach, see little crabs in the sand and enjoy the clear water but please avoid diving because of the sharks ;) ! I love travelling and discovering many places around the world but the Brazilian beaches are where I have that childhood feeling. The sound of the big waves, the soft golden sand, the girls with their little bikinis even if they're not that much skinny, the boys playing football or volleyball and the happiness of the children building their sand castles. Happiness !!

AZZARO WANTED


It's not often but sometimes I do have great news for my few male readers as right now ;) ! You guys have probably seen on my instagram that last week I was invited to the big launch of the new Azzaro perfume "Azzaro Wanted" in Zurich. It's a men's perfume which smell so good. The concept of the fragrance is all about desire and sensuality. It refers to a man who is audacious, attractive seducer and hedonist free of his choices and his life without limit. 
Pierre Aulas, the Olfactory Artistic Director, explained us all the process to get to this scent. The ingredients used to create this fragrance were lemon, ginger, cardamom, cade, vetiver and tonka beans. It's kind of an interesting mix between woody warm notes and cold spices. A very important thing that I particularly appreciate is the fact that the three main ingredients of this fragrance : the cardamom (from Guatemala), the vetiver (from Haiti) and the tonka beans (from Brazil) are from sustainable development program. Isn't this so nice ?
So guys, if you are in Switzerland you can get your hands on this gorgeous and delicious perfume from February. Now I'll let you discover some pictures from the event and at the end a video with the film of Azzaro Wanted. Wish you all a wonderful day ! Xo 

* Special thanks to the Azzaro and Clarins Team

YELLOW



Hi folks ! As you know, I was in Brazil for holidays where I could enjoy great time with my family. It was also time for me to make a break and reflect about everything in my life. Life is multi-faceted with so many constant changes and I guess that's the beauty of it ! 
Now, I am officially back at the digital world with so many things to show you. These pictures were taken in Olinda which is a beautiful city near Recife and an Unesco World Heritage site in Brazil. If you have the occasion to visit you'll see so many galleries, museums and workshops. The architecture is also gorgeous but I have already talked about it in this blogpost here !
So, that day I was going to have lunch at the "Oficina do Sabor" which is an amazing restaurant with delicious Brazilian food in Olinda. For the occasion, I wore a Yellow Zara dress and I accessorized the outfit with my Céline sunglasses, Gucci bag and Massimo Dutti sandals. Oh my God... the weather was so windy that I had to struggle with my dress and hair for pictures!!! So funny ;) !! Xo xo
