Brazil's Independence Day celebration is around the corner, September 7th. Here are a couple of inspired looks and treats. Enjoy!
If Brazilians value any single trait, it's optimism; it's being able to solve problems. And if the problem can't be fixed, just relax and forget about it....

This Brazilian Cocktail with fresh fruits and cachaça (see caçhaca) is a perfect drink for a summertime "festa". You can also use rum or vodka if you prefer. Batidas (pronounced: ‘BA-CHI-DA’) are in a way the Brazilian "grown up" milkshake, being an alcoholic drink blended with milk, fruits and in some versions, sweetened condensed milk " leite condensado".
This week I was delighted to be part of a little scene for the new film of upcoming French director Benjamin Goalabre. Here is a little photo of me with star Antoine Allain... We joked, "Ya things got hot."
What day is today? It's Friday. The day for Brazilian Beauty Tips.
So I want to share here my love for coconut oil. I love the smell and what it does to my hair and skin. It smells so good besides being a beauty product that is totally affordable and natural. And better yet, it works. So go for Cocunut Oil for beautiful hair and skin rather than using a product with lots of additives and chemicals, skip all those bad, really bad, ingredients and use 100% coconut oil.
