#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.

How to Survive from a Breakup

For those who don´t know me, I must tell you that I´m such a romantic person and being in love is such an amazing feeling for me. Although, I had to deal with some breakups and lack of confidence in the past, experiences changed me in a very positive way and I wish someone, at that time, could teach me some insights about "how to survive from a breakup". 

My tips:

1. Breakups are never easy do deal with so be conscious that hard times and thoughtful feelings will, probably, break into your mind constantly;

2. After a breakup I was used to check that person´s social media and acting like a stalker for a long time. Trying to know everything about their dates and wanted to know their daily life routine. Never do this! You are bringing back feelings that should not be in your mind ever again;

3. Accept all the situation. One thing I´ve been noticing, recently, is that we try to erase what happened and move on with our lives pretending everything is fine and that we still feel good in any way. But we don´t. We could not feel worse (inside), we barely eat properly and our weekends are passed reliving old times. I advise you to understand what really happened and that, sometimes, we can not help but pack our bags and move on;

4. Move on. As hard it can seems, this is not impossible!

5. Be friends with your ex-partner (if it is possible) or Never talk to that person again. Honestly, related to my experience I can guarantee you that is tough maintain any type of connection with your ex. grrrr. It´s hard after all the toxic feelings and actions. But, if we are talking about grown people, maintaining that friendship only means that, after everything you have been through, you still care about each other, even better, you still love each other but in a different way. 

6. Love has a different meaning for everyone. 

7. It is okay to be sad for some time. I can tell you that feeling depressed helped me to get through from bad mind status. Because hard times are amazing opportunities to start something new; 

8. Do some exercise and treat yourself better. Book some flights to any random place, stay connected to people that make you feel better, start eating better and do some jogging to stay fit. Doing some sports will release some endorphines into your bloodstream, which relaxes your mind and body;

9. Surround yourself with happy vibes, with people who help you to become the best version of yourself.

From The Big City

In case you don´t know, London is one of my favorite cities to hang out and have lots of fun in Europe!! So when I find some days off from work, I often book my flights to this amazing city for a few days. Honestly, It always refreshes my mind in such a positive way, the city is chaotic, non stop and all the environment pushes you to be the best version of yourself. Like I was saying, I immediately booked my flights and headed to the big city with my best friend. Not only we did the tourist things, but also we managed to meet my family there and to attend a British barbecue :D It was amazing...Most of the pictures below were taken with my iPhone so I apologize for not the best image quality but hope you enjoy it though. I promise I´ll be back soon. X 

ps: don´t you think my faux leather winter coat is not awwwesoome?!
