She is a feminist, volunteer of a non-profit organization that helps children with special needs, and definitely amazing to talk for hours. Welcome!

#1. "Love always yourself more. In the end, love is one thing and life is another one. But there´s only one life to care about. And if love does not want to follow you, try the first three times, but give up on the fourth time. Being happy is much more important. Life goes on." - Found out this post on your blog, and I am asking you until when should we fight for love? 

#P: We should always fight for love. It is always worth it fighting for someone that makes our life shaking off. There are only a few amount of people with this power, isn´t it? I believe when we fall in love with someone, it is possible that our life might not be cleared up for that person. However, it does not mean that in the future we can´t be or that we can not change their lives forever. As a result of this, we should never give up on something we truly believe and feel in our heart. If it is love: everything change. But if it isn´t, we have to be brave enough to move one. People have to understand that moving one is not a sign of weakness: therefore, there are so many people out there...and we all have the right to be and make someone happy. 

#2. There´s not a post on your blog that does not inspire someone or make us react in a you always write what you feel? 
#P: I think that always wrote beyond what I really felt inside. Sometimes, I find myself throwing up things that I, honestly, don´t know what I feel in that exact moment. Then, I end up reading what I have written and it seems like someone had written for me! Never overthink when I am writing. 

#3."Vai Ficar Tudo Bem" is your e-project launched in 2012, nevertheless, you have been writing for a long time before that. Do you consider that your followers at that time are still following your steps, at the blogosphere, until today? 
#P: Yeah, definitely. There are still some people following my adventures from those old times, especially some friends. Anyway, the truth is I don´t even know who reads my blog in reality. It had happened before:  meeting people in random events and they already know my blog (it is such a great feeling being recognized!). 

#4. Your blog has been a network and partnership tool with some companies, however the blogosphere´s market has become even more popular and competitive. How do you highlight from the others?
#P: The authenticity. I´ll never promote products or services that do not mean something to me. On the other hand, most of the posts I write are  entirely developed by me and most of the brands or people do not even know that I am a blogger. I love sharing my own experiences, so my viewers can "e-live" these moments with me, too.

#5. Do you follow any ritual while you´re writing for your blog?
#P: Yeah!Most of the people don´t know what mean having a blog and how long we spend with it. If they know, they would appreciate even more our work. Regarding my ritual, I always put some proper music on. Music  is such a good inspiration for me, since when I am editing some photos until drawing up my post (normally they´ve been on my mind for some nights in a row before falling asleep!). I always right in a flash: do not think too much. And, further, I rarely read. What I think at the moment I write, if does make sense I post it online. It happens several times, the next day, I end up deleting the post (the pain had gone and I don´t want people to read it!).

#6. Even though social media have been a benefit for everyone, also to some companies that wish to be present at online platforms, it brought to you  some unpleasantness issues, as well some people pretending to be you. How can you handle this type of situation?  
#P: Well, until very recently I did not care too much about it. But as I have been growing up, I am becoming more aware of these types of situation.  You know....when you don´t have a full-time job or represent a brand, basically, what people say or think about you it´s irrelevant. Having random people pretending to be me can be disastrous: we never know whether our image is following the right purpose, or who is pretending and or if he/she is close enough or far from us! The internet is a world that can be used with the right intention or not. Unfortunately, we need to protect ourselves.

#7. "Man are the dumbest people I know. I don´t like hearing that they are all the same. It annoys me who do it, because the truth is: no one had tried all them and the delusions created by them in women are the same as a woman can create in all men!" -   Are women closer to understand the men? Or is it the opposite? 
#P: We´re incomprehensible human beings. I enjoy thinking that the life´s trick is, exactly, in it! The "Cat and dog´s game" can enhance some silly moments, although that´s where adrenaline comes from. But if you want me to bet on it, I guess women and our sixth sense understand men better.

#8. Writting or taking pictures?
#P: Taking pictures! Because it does mean having the possibility to write an infinity of things without writing something....

#9. Projects in the future? News coming?
#P: Even though, time has been, ultimately, very short, I am involved in so many projects! Not only for blog purposes, but also regarding my personal life. The day where I am not doing something else, it means I´d be miserable. 

#10. The Glam Life Diary is a blog related to a young and open minded target. What is your advice, for our readers, that intend to launch and give the first baby steps into the digital world? 

#P:Never try to be someone else. Do not create a blog just because is something trendy or to be cool. Honestly, being a blogger is synonymous of therapy. People that do not do in the healthy and genuine way, it will be hard to send the right message and, as a matter of fact, it ´s awful.  Regarding technical issues, there are some crucial things: image and video quality, communication among social networks and content management. The most important thing is to always input a little bit of your personality in what you´re doing. The rest will come. :)

Thank you!!
