Olá, eu sou a Joana - a cara por detrás do The Paper and Ink. Vinte e muitos anos, natural e residente da belíssima cidade do Porto, sou uma fotógrafa e blogger que em 2009 criou este espaço em busca de uma maneira de dar a conhecer ao mundo a minha voz, as minhas ideias e paixões. O TPI é um lifestyle blog, ou seja, é um pouco de tudo o que marca a minha vida, me apaixona e que acredito ser importante partilhar.

Hints of Spring

Hello, lovelies!!!

Oh,Spring feels so good through this past days! The sun shines in the sky, the weather is warm,welcoming and nice, it makes you smile, run,jump and you just want to wear pretty clothes, vivid colors. I love you April and i love you Spring!

I don't really wear this dress much,i have it since August last year and if i used it four times it was a lot.It happens that every time i put it on some naughty wind goes on and the Marilyn Monroe effect is such a pain in the ass, plus, it doesn't fit me in the best, my opinion, but i still love it. I am weirdo, i know.
Anyway, this time decided to put it out of the closet and pair it with oxford shoes and a coco hat and it was overall a good idea, despite the ocasional wind!

Dress - H&M | Hat -Blanco | Satchel Bag - Blanco | Swallow Ring - Primark | Oxford Shoes - Primark

This was a very non-typical Saturday for me and this going out where i got the chance to take outfit photos (done by my great friend Joana) was actually a work going out. Work as in the matter of i am probably setting myself for a 15 days work in a contemporary art gallery. I won't work the 15 days, we'll work in shifts, but i couldn't loose this chance, the money comes nicely but so comes the knowledge within my area of study, the contact with artists, know how the business is by being inside it. We talked for a good two hours or so with the commissioner of this specific exhibit and we still have a few things to arrange but the exhibit opens up on the 13th and closes by May 1st.

Now just to make you all a little jeaulous, this how my afternoon ended before i came home...

Waffles with chocolate, and a really nice passion fruit juice!!!
