#YoungCreativeMinds - Patrícia Luz

Chama-se Patrícia Luz, tem 23 anos e é a segunda convidada da rúbrica Young Creative Minds. Atualmente, é Gestora Comercial no Grupo de referência Hotéis Real e Blogger do vaificartudobeem.blogspot.com. Licenciada em Gestão, mas com um talento inato para a escrita, conta com mais de 130.000 visitas no seu blogue e, diz-se uma eterna apaixonada pela vida. Gosta de surfar na Costa Vicentina, fotografar e conhecer novas pessoas. Confessou-me gostar de Gin de frutos vermelhos, vive divida entre o Sul e o Centro do País e, grande parte dos seus textos no seu blogue são sobre o amor. É feminista, voluntária de uma instituição de emergência infantil e és das melhores pessoas para se conversar. Bem-vinda! 





#1. “Amem-se sempre mais. No fundo o amor é uma coisa e a vida é outra. Mas vida há só uma. E se o amor não a quiser acompanhar sempre, insistam as primeiras três vezes e desistam na quarta. Ser feliz é muito mais importante. Life goes on.” – Encontrei este excerto no teu blogue e pergunto-te em que medida é que vale a pena lutar pelo amor?
#P: Vale sempre a pena lutar pelo amor. Vale sempre a pena lutar por alguém que faz a nossa vida estremecer. Há tão poucas pessoas assim, não é? Acredito que quando nos apaixonamos por alguém, é possível que a vida dessa pessoa possa não estar "arrumada" da mesma forma que a nossa. Isso não significa que não possa vir a estar; isso não significa que não possamos mudar a vida dela para sempre. Por isso nunca devemos desistir daquilo que temos a certeza que sentimos. Se for amor: tudo muda. Mas se não for, é preciso ter a coragem de baixar os braços. As pessoas têm que perceber que isso nem sempre é sinal de fraqueza: Afinal de contas, há tantas pessoas no mundo... E todos nós temos o direito de ser e fazer alguém feliz.


​#2. Não há um texto teu que não inspire alguém ou cause reações, sempre escreveste o que sentias?
#P: Acho que sempre escrevi para além do que sentia. Dou por mim a vomitar coisas cá para fora que nem sei bem se é o que sinto naquele exato momento. Depois leio-me e parece que alguém escreveu para/por mim. Escrevo sempre sem pensar muito.

#3.O “Vai ficar tudo bem” é um projeto teu criado em 2012, mas já escrevias há bem mais tempo, consideras que quem te seguiu nessa altura ainda te segue atualmente?
#P: Sim, acho que existem algumas pessoas a seguir-me desde essa altura. Especialmente amigos. Contudo, a verdade é eu nem sei bem quem me segue na realidade.. Já aconteceu conhecer pessoas em ocasiões aleatórias e elas lerem-me há imenso tempo sem que eu nunca as tivesse visto antes (é muito boa a sensação!)



​#4. O teu blogue tem sido uma ferramenta de networking e de partnership com algumas organizações e a blogosfera continua um mercado muito competitivo. O que te distingue dos outros?
#P: A autenticidade. Eu nunca promoverei produtos ou espaços com os quais não me identifique! Inclusivé, a maioria dos posts que faço são de minha livre iniciativa e muitas dessas pessoas/espaços nunca chegam a saber que sou blogger. Gosto de partilhar as boas experiências que tenho para que várias pessoas as possam ter também


#5. Possuis algum ritual enquanto escreves algo para o blogue?
#P: Sim! A maioria das pessoas não têm ideia do que é ter um blog e o tempo que gastamos com ele. Se soubessem valorizariam muito mais o nosso trabalho. O meu ritual passa sempre por escolher musicas adequadas aquilo que estou a pensar publicar. Naquele momento são elas que me inspiram para tudo: desde a edição das fotos à preparação do texto (que normalmente anda a "boiar" durante noites a fio na minha cabeça antes de fechar os olhos nos dias anteriores). Escrevo-lo é sempre em modo piloto automático:não penso muito. Uma curiosidade é que raramente o leio. O que penso no momento escrevo e se achar que até tem sentido, publico. Inúmeras vezes no dia seguinte apago-o. (As dores já passaram e já não interessa que ninguém saiba). Outras releio-o, continua a fazer sentido e é então nestas alturas que corrijo os erros.



#6. Apesar das redes sociais serem um verdadeiro benefício para qualquer pessoa e mesmo empresas que queiram estabelecer uma presença online, a ti trouxe-te alguns dissabores e pessoas que tencionam fazer-se passar por ti. Como lidas com este tipo de situação? 
#P: Até há bem pouco tempo banalizava bastante essas situações. Mas a pouco e pouco, tenho-me vindo a preocupar. Sabes ... Quando não temos um emprego, uma empresa da qual somos a cara, o que os outros pensam ou dizem de nós não passa disso mesmo. Ter pessoas a fazerem-se passar por mim pode tornar-se desastroso na minha vida e na vida de qualquer pessoa: nunca sabemos para o que é que a nossa imagem está a ser usada, quem é que o faz e onde é que esse alguém pode estar geograficamente. 
A internet é um mundo para o bem e para o mal. Infelizmente, temos que nos proteger.

#7. “Os homens são o ser mais estúpido que conheço. Não gosto de ouvir por aí dizer que são todos iguais. Irrita-me quem o faz, porque na verdade nunca ninguém teve o prazer de experimentar todos e as desilusões que alguns criam numa mulher são tantas quantas uma mulher cria num homem.” – As mulheres estão mais perto de compreender os homens ou o contrário?
#P: Somos seres incompreensíveis. Gosto de pensar que a piada da vida está mesmo aí! O jogo do rato e do gato pode-nos dar muitos dissabores, mas é a adrenalina das vezes que corre bem que é o oxigênio das nossas vidas. Mas se me pedisses para apostar .. Penso que as mulheres e o sexto sentido compreendem melhor os homens.



#8. Escrever ou fotografar?
#P: Fotografar! Porque a fotografar é possível escrever tantas coisas sem dizer uma palavra...


#9. Projetos para o futuro? Alguma novidade para breve?
#P: Apesar do tempo ser escasso ultimamente, não faltam projetos! Tanto para o blog como para a minha vida. No dia em que me faltarem projetos ... Estamos mal.

#10. Sendo o The Glam Life Diary um blogue com um target jovem e open minded, qual o teu conselho, aos leitores, que queiram iniciar com os primeiros passos numa plataforma digital?

#P: Que nunca tentem parecer o que não são. Que não façam blogues só para estar na moda e ser fixes. Acho que ser blogger é uma terapia. Quem não o faz de forma saudável e pura, dificilmente o faz transparecer para quem o lê e na minha opinião isso é péssimo. 
A níveis técnicos penso que haja dois aspetos essenciais: qualidade da fotos e videos, comunicação (outras redes sociais) e organização do conteúdo. 
O mais importante é depositarmos o melhor de nós em cada bocadinho daquilo que fazemos. O resto virá por acréscimo :) 


Obrigado!!

What is no-makeup makeup and why should men try?

As an enthusiastic about makeup and the way it can enhance my creative side and, also, making me have a blast while I get my face done for some special event or meeting, I needed to talk it out about this issue, especially if we are discussing about makeup for men. Being open minded thanks to my constant trips abroad, reading fashion magazines and modelling for advertising companies I, inevitable, got an huge interest about makeup but, mainly, about cosmetics in general. That said, if you feel like heading out this weekend on a date with someone special or if there is a glam party and you want to look good for, this post might interest you. The point of no-makeup makeup is to look as though we aren´t wearing any makeup! Most men still do not get it but believe me, makeup does miracles and, nowadays, looking your best can, definitely, boost your confidence. And, hello...don´t you want to look like a model in 10 minutes? #iknowyouwanttho. 

--- Get the perfect no-makeup makeup look with these cosmetics I personally do use below ---

1. Makeup primer that´s specifically beneficial for oily and combination skin types - Prep and Prime natural radiance from MAC. 38€.

2. A colour correcting that increases the natural radiance of the skin - Tinted cream SPFF 30 with radiance booster from MAC. 32€.

3. A moisturizing concealer enriched with minerals and nourishing botanicals -  Mineralize concealer from MAC. 19€

4. A luxurious powder that adds highlight to the high points of the face - Mineralize skinfinish from MAC. 22€

How to dress down a trench coat

I was DYING to show you my latest acquisition: this full-length trench coat from COS. When I bought this coat I was, initially, looking for something to wear with a suit but I guess I´ve changed my mind and, definitely, can dress it down for a casual daily look, isn´t it?  This trench coat is one of the best investments I ever made this winter season, as I fell in love with the minimalist and clean design. It can be worn with almost anything - not shorts, unless you want to look a bit "weirdo". I tempted it with a grey pair of jeans and a pair of portuguese designer boots (eurekashoes.com), and violà!

Still want to look like a cool like this season? You can find it HERE!!

3 Reasons why I love wearing black and you need to Stfu about it


 I needed to make a post related to my recent obsession about wearing black almost every single day. To be honest, I have been developing this taste throughout these past few months, I don´t know why or how it got started. I was always into colorful clothes, a full yellow cardigan or some new neon sneakers would make me feel like a cool kid. Crazy, hun? Things changed completely. Maybe because I am 23 years old and I am not that kid starving for attention, on the streets, anymore hahaha. I am in a overwhelming period of my life, so many things changed, working in a full time job, looking for international adventures....suddenly I found myself wearing black in a daily basis..it seemes to match my inner soul and I f*cking love it. All black everything is my new motto, along with a powerful make up or some basic rayban sunnies in case you want to hide your terrible under circle eyes from last night out! 3 Reasons why you should ONLY wear black?

1. We don´t need bright colors to stand out. I believe presence comes from the inside, put your best attitude and don´t let others to make you feel like nothing when (tbh) people might be inspired by the way you match you accessories according to your outfit. They are craving for your attention!

2. Effortless. That´s the word. Black is literally trying without showing off. And isn´t that look we are trying to achieve?

3. Because we know how mysterious we might look. No one wants to look boring and predictable. We always have secrets we might never tell, all black outfit enhance this hidden part of us.

#YoungCreativeMinds - Marisa Vitória

One thing I´ve wanted for a long time was to create a new concept here on the blog. As a visionary, I had on my mind to share with everyone some people that are truly an inspiration for me. Not only in a professional way but also in an introspective side. The main message of this blog is to inspire someone to change their lives somehow and, achieve their dreams. It can be about running a new business, getting motivated to do some sports, someone with a passion about something or even with a story to talk about. At the end of the day, It might inspires you to change something about yourself! So, if you know someone that can inspire all of us please let me know in the comments bar below. Today, I´m happy to start this new The Glam Life Diary´s section with the blogger of the "La vie en Rose", Marisa Vitória. She´s 23 years old, marketing student with a tremendous passion about writing and photography and, also, blogging since 2010. Her writing skills are just amazing and I, definitely, advise you to check it out her blog here. Marisa Vitória, from a point no one else had the opportunity to see, read the interview below and get to know the first "young creative mind". 

Welcome MARISA. Before starting our little chat, I want to thank you, in advance, your acceptance regarding my invite. We have been friends for ages and it is, definitely, a privilege doing this with such a talented person. Hope you can share with us a little bit of your life, or a side still undiscovered by most of people. I can bet we all will get inspired by your story.


#1. "Inside my heart, I never didn´t give up. While the reason made me want to believe that was not worth it anymore, in my heart was always a bright light and hope. Because, at the end of the day, I´ve always heard that we should not give up from something that made us happy".

 Found out this quote in your blog and according to the countless of your blog posts about love, I´m asking you...What does it rest from past relationships/love?

#M: I wrote this post in 2013, and reading it all again right now, it gives me chills. Love and passion were always something part of myself, it can move us to different states of mind and let us completely broken (in the end of the day)...From these experiences rest us stories, little pieces of me that belong to the past, although I remember it with kindness.


#2. La Vie en Rose was created in 2010 and, as mentioned in the previous question, a good part of your blog posts are related to love and occurrences in your life. Do you consider that the art of blogging have been helping you in some way? Like a escape from reality when things are getting rough? What do you want from your writing?  

#M: I developed my blog in 2010, exactly in the worst period of my life. I was feeling completely lost, "alone", lacking a direction to fight for. As I always have been very quiet, covering (everything!) things to myself, and did not feel like to talk with people about some private details of my life, I decided to challenge myself and create a place in the internet, as an online confident, where I could write and unburden everything from my soul. I mean, not everything but a good part of it. I write to feel more relieved as If I could get through everything!


#3. What is your biggest inspiration or reference? And why?

#M: My mother is my biggest inspiration. She has such a good heart and the person I have become  and everything I am nowadays are thanks to her.

#4. Beyond your passion about writing, photography is also one of your passions. When did it start?

#M: This hobby started some years ago, when I discovered that as writing, photography was also a escape for my own world. I was used to spend several hours just to get the perfect shot and, then, edit it all them. Today, my camera messed it up so I´m not being able to photograph. 

#5. The picture that describes your soul and why?

#M: The picture below reflects, undoubtedly, my introspective and dreamer side. As also, an hidden side, everything that is only for me that I don´t share with anyone.




#6. As a marketing student, what type of career do you want to develop in the future? For economic reasons, the economic situation in Portugal is far from good..are you willing to pack your bags and start something new somewhere else? 

#M: I do not exclude this option, unfortunately Portugal does not have the right conditions to develop a better life, only just to survive from it. Regarding my future, I hope working in marketing as It is my academic background, as a sale manager or in merchandising. Something related to what I am studying really hard right now and connected to what I am learning, in a daily basis, at work. 


#7. An advise for all The Glam Life Diary´s readers?

#M: Be the best version of yourself, life the life you want without filters, hypocrisies or fake statements. Learn to love yourself and accept it, after that, things will get easier.  

#8.Tell us your biggest achievement.

#M: I don´t have any "biggest achievement", what I have are personals achievements and milestones that I´m so proud of. For me, an achievement is doing something that people think I cannot do it. It is overtaking a part of my shyness, speaking to an audience. It is fighting without fears and never give up, even when giving up might be the easiest option. Facing my daily fears, and self-overcome, every single day.

#9. The last but not the least, happiness means...

#M: ..being with my beloved ones, doing what I love, drink a cup of tea and read a good book on the weekends.

Thank you!!

A New Chapter - "WELCOME TO The Glam Life Diary"

I have been blogging for almost 10 years now, since fotolog, skyrock and blogspot I felt the need to try something new and, again, change to another visual plataform. During some weeks my mind got full of new creative concepts as I was trying to develop something new for my new online diary. Since 2008, this blog suffered some little changes but nothing too crazy or something like that. Through all these years, I´ve changed a lot..from my music taste to my inspirations everything is quite different now. I met so many amazing people that helped me to improve myself, traveled a lot around Europe and fell in love with my (glam) life. My readers (you guys!!) are a part of this diary, they will always be and I knew they needed something different as they grew up equally by my side and have been following my baby steps, since the beginning, in this atmosphere. This new platform is an insight from everything that makes me passionate about, so if only one person gets inspired by a daily look or a post related to fashion, all my efforts were, definitely, worth it. 

For me it was always about sharing my life with people and seeing their reaction to it. That was everything I ever wanted to do.
