Christmas Tree Shopping

November 15, 2020

Can’t believe Christmas is five weeks away!! Have you started decorating for the holidays this year, yet?

We start decorating our Christmas tree the weekend after Thanksgiving. This year however, I wanted to start early for Christmas excitement as my girls are older and are starting to really understand and enjoy the holidays.

I’ve just realized that we don’t have a Christmas tree anymore. We donated our old Christmas tree last year, after ten years… We need to go Christmas Tree shopping!

This year, I’m debating what kind of tree we should get. A very realistic new artificial Christmas tree or try for the first time in my life, to have a freshly cut natural one.

I am really debating, because I am all about creating moments with my girls and I think this is a milestone I would love to experience with them, and live that American tradition of driving to a field, pick a tree, thigh it up to the roof of our car and bring it back home.

Which one do you think I should get? An artificial Christmas tree or the real deal, to experience?

I have done a little research around, and the fresh-cut Christmas trees are not available yet, so I did a curation of a couple of styles in case we decide to buy an artificial one. They are in the most realistic Christmas trees category, and with great reviews. Which one would you pick?

Guacamole Recipe the Entire Family Will Love

April 7, 2020

By Luci Fioritto

One of the greatest memories I have from my childhood is of me cooking with my mom. I remember myself helping making cakes for our family birthdays or simply watching her every day making nutritious meals after work. At our house is no different. I let Vivi participate in making our meals since the age of two. From washing the vegetables or the rice to choosing the pasta noddle. Something simple that makes them feel special in the household routine, and that actually helps them being more connected and not picky. .
Now that Vivi is four, Carolina and I are the sous chefs and she’s the chef anytime we make guacamole!

There are so many ways to enjoy this delish easy to make healthy dish. Our family loves guacamole on a toast with a boiled egg on top in the morning, as snack with tortillas in the afternoon, in our salads for lunch, or to literally “guac n’roll” our taco and quesadillas. Ready for the recipe?

Ingredients
2 ripe avocados
1 lemon or 2 limes squeezed
2 chopped snack size sweet yellow or orange bell peppers
3 chopped cherry tomatoes or 1 whole roman tomato
3 tablespoons of fresh cilantro or italian parsley
Salt to taste (I like pink Himalayan)

** 1/2 small onion chopped optional
*** 1 jalapeño without the seeds optional, if you like it hot. My kids don’t like hot foods, so we never add them.

Directions
Mash the avocados (we use a potato masher) to get the right balance of chunky and smooth. Add the lemon squeeze and all the other ingredients. Mix everything and enjoy!

Total time to make including prep: 8 minutes.

Receita de Guacamole que a Família Inteira Vai Amar

Uma das minhas maiores memórias de infância, é de quando eu cozinhava com a minha mãe. Eu me lembro ajudando a fazer os bolos de aniversários da família, ou de simplesmente observar minha mãe cozinhando pratos nutritivos ao chegar em casa, depois do trabalho. Aqui em casa não é diferente. A Vivi me ajuda a cozinhar desde os dois anos de idade. Desde lavar os vegetais ou o arroz, até escolher a forma da pasta que vamos comer. Coisinhas simples, que fazem eles se sentirem especiais, e mais conectados com a nutrição. .
Agora que a Vivi tem quatro anos, Carolina e eu somos as sous chefs, e Vivi a chef, toda vez que fazemos guacamole!

Existem muitas maneiras de aproveitar esse pratinho delicioso e saudável. Nossa família adora guacamole na torrada, com ovo cozido por cima pela manhã, em nossas saladas no almoço, no lanchinho da tarde com tortilhas ou literalmente “guac n’roll” nossos tacos ou quesadillas.

Ingredientes
2 avocados maduros – ou 1 abacate
Suco de 1 limão siciliano – ou 2 limões verdes
2 pimentões bem picadinhos (amarelo ou laranja) pequenos – Ou metade de um pimentão normal.
3 tomates cereja bem picadinhos – ou 1 tomato Romano sem sementes
3 colheres de sopa de cilantro ou de salsinha
Sal à gosto

** 1/2 cebela bem picadinha, opcional.
*** 1 jalapeño sem sementes bem picadinha, opcional, se você gosta picante. Minhas filhas não gostam de comidas picantes, então eu nunca adiciono.

Mode de Fazer
Amasse o avocado com um esmagador de batatas, para um obter uma textura de purê em pedaços. Se não tiver o esmagador de batatas, faça amasse com garfo mesmo. Adicione o suco de limão, e todos os outros ingredientes. Misture tudo e aproveite!

Tempo de preparo: 8 minutos.

Work From Home Tricks and Tips

March 23, 2020

By Luci Fioritto


Scary times, I know! Lots of adjustments, and uncertainties, phew! How was your 1st week working from home? If you are straggling or if you feel your routine needs some adds-on to reach a balance, this post will help you.

I remember when I started working from home in 2012, it was not easy. At the time I had no children, and I enjoyed getting ready in the morning, seeing people every day and be in a routine I knew for a long long time, which was going to the office. Sometimes It takes a minute to get used to a WFH (Work From Home) routine, but once you get into the rhythm, trust me, it’s not bad. I ended up going back to the office when I changed jobs, but worked partially remote for a couple of years after, before taking the decision to working for myself and from home full time as a freelancer when I had my second child. So, I considere myself very adaptable and that’s the attitude you need right now: Adapt to stay sane! 

If you are new to the WFH thing. Here’s the trick: CREATE A ROUTINE.

  • Wake up at the same time you would if you were going to the office. 
  • Use the time you would commute to work and squeeze in a work out – even if 15 minutes it’s all you have, move your body – it will make a big difference on your day and mood.
  • Make your bed – it gives you a sense of accomplishing something 
  • Take a shower
  • Dress up, even to a casual look but take off your pijamas or what ever you slept in
  • Brush your hair, brush your teeth and put on deodorant – keep your hygiene, please!
  • For the ladies, if you like makeup, put some on. Even if just a BB cream, blush and mascara. Again, it makes a difference.
  • Have breakfast
  • Try to work in separate rooms if you have a significant other or flat mate also working from home, if possible. Getting some space apart is important.
  • Make a to do list and stick to it
  • Make coffee 
  • Get some fresh air
  • Stop for lunch at the same time you would at the office
  • Make more coffee
  • Stretch 
  • If it makes you productive and if it’s possible, work outside from your porch
  • Stop working at the time you would while at the office or when you are finished
  • Put your computer and work away for life work balance.

Cheers!

Dicas para Trabalhar de Casa

Por Luci Fioritto

Tempos difíceis, eu sei! Muitos ajustes a se fazer e incertezas, aff! Como foi a sua primeira semana trabalhando de casa? Se você está tendo dificuldades, ou acha que precisa complementar a sua rotina para alcançar um equilíbrio, essa matéria vai te ajudar.

Quando eu comecei a trabalhar de casa em 2012, não foi fácil. Naquela época, eu não tinha filhos, e eu curtia ficar pronta de manhã, ver gente todos os dias e ficar em uma rotina que eu conhecia durante muito muito tempo, que era trabalhar no escritório.

Às vezes demora um pouco para se acostumar a rotina de TDC (trabalhar de casa), mas uma vez que você entra no ritmo, acredite, é muito bom. Eu acabei voltando a trabalhar novamente no escritório, quando eu mudei de emprego, mas eu trabalhei de casa parcialmente por alguns anos depois, antes de tomar a decisão de me tornar freelancer e trabalhar de casa, depois do nascimento da minha segunda filha. Eu me considero bem adaptável, e é essa atitude que você tem que tomar agora: Adapte-se para você manter a sanidade mental!

Para você que é novo em TDC, aqui um toque: CRIE UMA ROTINA.

  • Acorde na mesma hora que você levantaria para ir ao escritório.
  • Use o tempo que você gastaria se mobilizando para o trabalho, para adicionar um treinozinho – mesmo que for por 15 minutos. Mexa seu corpo! Você sentirá uma grande diferença no seu dia e no seu humor.
  • Arrume sua cama – lhe dará a sensação de algo cumprido.
  • Tome banho.
  • Se arrume, mesmo se for algo mais casual, tire o seu pijama!
  • Penteie os cabelos, escove os dentes e passe desodorante – mantenha sua higiene pessoal, por favor! 
  • Para as mulheres que gostam de maquiagem, aplique um pouco. Mesmo se for apenas um BB cream, blush, rímel e gloss. Faz diferença!
  • Tome café da manhã.
  • Se possível, tente trabalhar em um cômodo separado do seu parceiro (a), ou de pessoas você divide sua casa, que estão trabalhando de casa como você. Ter um espaço separado é importante.
  • Faça um checklist e cumpra seus objetivos diários.
  • Faça café.
  • Tome um ar.
  • Pare para almoçar, e tente fazê-lo na mesma hora que o faria, se estivesse no escritório.
  • Faça mais café.
  • Estique-se.
  • Se te faz produtivo, e se for possível, trabalhe da sua varanda.
  • Pare de trabalhar no mesmo horário que você pararia no escritório.
  • Coloque seu computador e trabalho de lado, para manter um equilíbrio em casa.

Detroit Christmas Lights

December 5, 2019

By Luci

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… Everywhere you go… – I love this song.

Christmas lights in downtown Detroit keep getting better year after year. We love watching Holidays lights with the girls, it is one of our traditions this time of the year. Last weekend we finally had a chance to check it out, closing our long Thanksgiving holiday weekend perfectly.

Campus Martius Christmas Tree

It was cloudy and it started raining unexpectedly on our way to the city, which it made us almost to change our plans, but since we’re halfway through and so in need of some fresh air, we decided to give it a try. We were also hungry, so we stopped at a place to get a bite, with the hopes the rain would stop. Best decision we made – the rain stopped, we had our bellies full and it wasn’t too cold. The streets were wet, but it wasn’t bad, it actually made it extra fun for the girls with all the puddles. 

Cadillac Square Christmas Market

Campus Maritus wasn’t crowded, so we stayed around that area. We had a chance to really look around and see the amazing job the city and sponsors did this year. 

Campus Martius

So many adorable spots and interactive installations with the cutest lights and backgrounds to take Holidays pictures in Detroit. Actually I think I’m starting a series of this to give you ideas to take yours. Here are my findings around Campus Martius. Check it out!

I can’t wait to go back and explore more! What’s your holiday tradition?

Luzes de Natal em Detroit – tire uma foto

By Luci

As luzes de Natal em Detroit ficam cada ano mais bonitas. Ver as luzes de Natal é tradição da nossa família nesta época do ano.
Fim de semana passado nós finalmente conseguimos ir conferir as luzes de Detroit, fechando com chave de ouro o nosso fim de semana prolongado do Thanksgiving.

O tempo estava fechado, e começou a chover no caminho, o que fez a gente quase desistir, mas resolvemos arriscar e ir assim mesmo, porque precisávamos tomar um ar. Estávamos com fome, então paramos em um lugar para comer, na esperança da chuva passar… Foi realmente o que aconteceu, a chuva deu uma trégua e conseguimos nos divertir. As ruas estavam bem molhadas, cheias de poças d’água, o que não foi problema, porque até adicionou uma diversão à mais para as meninas – elas adoram pular em poças! Como estavam com botas, deixei elas aproveitarem. Amaram!

Conseguimos explorar a área da Campus Martius. A cidade e os patrocinadores arrasaram este ano. A decoração está linda!

Campus Martius

Tem tantos lugares fofos e instalações interativas com as luzes de Natal de fundo os para tirar fotos de Natal em Detroit. Na verdade, acho que vou começar uma série de uns lugares legais tirar foto nesta época do ano. Aqui estão as minhas descobertas ao redor da Campus Martius. Confiram!

Transitioning into Fall Look

September 25, 2019

By Luci

Beginning of fall… i personally love this time of the year! Daylight doesn’t last as long anymore and temperatures start to drop, however the days are beautiful and staying out in the sun feels so incredibly comfortable. It’s time for transitioning outfits, where we basically have to wear 2 in 1 combinations, because of chilly mornings and warm afternoons. An opportunity to pair up a couple of spring/summer pieces with the new season’s fashion.

A couple of months ago I finally visited the beautiful Shinola hotel boutique in Detroit. The hotel is located in the city’s shopping district right on Woodward Ave. When you walk in it feels like you are in an art gallery because of all the incredible paintings, furniture, photography and books displayed in its living space. I felt like I was submerged in this mid century modern vibe that made my eyes shine! Oh, and let’s not forget about the great hospitality! I have to say this because the customer experience is everything to me: Every single hotel worker, from the valet guys to the front desk staff said good morning to me. They all had beautiful smiles on their faces, and they seemed happy to be there, which for me completed the vibe of this place.

“The Shinola Hotel Parker’s Alley”, that you see here in my pictures is named after Thomas Parker, one of the first black landowners in the city of Detroit. The alley “is lined with specially-curated shopping options”, which “offers a mix of global brands and homegrown businesses that celebrate Detroit’s entrepreneurial spirit” – https://www.shinolahotel.com/parkers-alley

My outfit is Zara and my shoes are from one of my favorite Brazilian brands Schutz.

When I first visited Michigan from São Paulo more than a decade ago, Detroit looked like a ghost town to me, and I didn’t quite understand how such a remarkably iconic American city was left like that, destitute and empty. Nowadays, seeing all the construction, the various projects, and the evolution that has taken place over the years is an amazing experience to watch. There is still a lot to be done, but it makes me so proud and happy. Go Detroit go!

Have you been to Detroit? What’s your favorite spot?

Visit to Sunflower Fields

September 13, 2019

By Luci

Visiting a sunflower farm has been on my bucket list for years, and after having the girls I was determined to find one and share this experience with them. 

We found one only one hour away from our house, and the trip was actually very pleasant and pretty with roads full of beautiful farm houses and rural landscape.

I love to spend time outside in nature with my girls. We take every opportunity we have to teach them something through play and experiences. At the farm we taught the girls how the sunflower likes to face the sun and Vivi noticed that they don’t like shade (proud mom moment there). They also could observe the bees and how gentle they are (if not bothered) while collecting their nectar. It was a dream come true for me, and I was glad my husband was able to capture beautiful shots of us before they became hungry and ready for their naps!

Oh and let’s not forget to talk about the matching outfits! I think it’s so cute and my heart melts every time I see two girls twinning dresses. Vivi is tall for her age and sometimes it is hard to find matching dresses, so when I found these at Zara I didn’t think twice. I choose my outfit of the day to match theirs and free people never disappoints.

What about you? What are your plans for these last weeks of summer?

Cabo San Lucas Trip Diaries

July 9, 2015

When looking back at my Instagram photos and thinking about last week, it feels like a dream. I took a vacation and spent five days in beautiful Cabo San Lucas with my husband.

It was our first time in Cabo, and we had a wonderful time. Actually, how can you not have fun in Mexico? Mexicans are wonderful people. They are friendly, hardworking people… They are happy and always celebrate life by having a good time.

I had been on the Atlantic side of Mexico before (as you can see in my Tulum post here) but never in the Pacific side.

In my opinion, the Pacific and Atlantic sides of Mexico are totally different from each other. In the Yucatan, it feels more tropical, there’s a lot of green, caribbean sea and can get humid at times. In Baja California del Sur, where Cabo is located, it is dry and it has a desert feel with beautiful views of the ocean.

Cabo is definitely a city connected to the ocean. Get ready, because it is HOT! All the good hotels offer views of the ocean and excellent pools. If you like boat trips, fishing, snorkeling, and all water sports, Cabo is  a great city for you to visit. Cabo is also home to fabulous restaurants and night life.

I love exploring, and about 20 minutes from Cabo San Lucas, there’s the artsy and picturesque city of San Jose del Cabo. My husband and I really had fun looking around the little art galleries and boutiques. Before heading back to our hotel, we stopped at this restaurant called “Mi Casa” where the tables are strategically set among trees, making you feel like you are in somebody’s backyard.

At Mi Casa, I also got my first mariachi serenade. Awe, it was so special. I asked and they sang my favorite Spanish songs of all times: “Paloma” and “Besa me” 😀

We celebrated 4th of July at the incredible One and Only Palmilla. What a magical place! The food was delicious and the people working there so welcoming. I can’t wait to make our trip back!

Ao olhar as minhas fotos do Instagram e pensando na semana passada, é como se estivesse em um sonho. Finalmente tirei minhas férias tão esperadas do meu trabalho, e passei cinco dias na bela cidade de Cabo San Lucas, no México. Fui com meu marido, e foi nossa primeira vez em Cabo. Foi tudo maravilhoso e nos divertimos muito. Aliás, como você pode não se divertir no México? Os mexicanos são pessoas maravilhosas. Eles são amigáveis, pessoas trabalhadoras … Eles são animados, como nós brasileiros, e sempre celebram a vida com um sorriso no rosto. 

Eu já me aventurei pelo lado do oceano Atlântico do México  (como você pode ver no meu post sobre a minha viagem a Tulum aqui), mas nunca tinha explorado o lado do oceano Pacífico .

Na minha opinião, os lados do Pacífico e do Atlântico no México são totalmente diferentes um do outro. Em Yucatán (lado do Atlântico), é mais tropical, há muito verde, mar do Caribe e também muito úmido. Em Baja California del Sur (lado do Pacífico), onde Cabo está localizado , é seco e é mais desértico, com belas vistas do oceano.

Cabo também é definitivamente uma cidade ligada ao mar. Preparem-se, porque é quente! Todos os bons hotéis tem vista para o mar e excelentes piscinas. Se você gosta de passeios de barco, pesca, mergulho e esportes aquáticos, Cabo é uma ótima cidade para você visitar. Cabo também é o lar de restaurantes deliciosos e de uma boa vida noturna.

Eu adoro explorar, e cerca de 20 minutos de Cabo San Lucas, existe uma cidadezinha pitoresca, famosa por seus artistas e galerias de arte, chamada San Jose del Cabo.

Passamos o nosso dia andando pela cidade e descobrindo por portinhas pequenas, grandes galerias e muitos trabalhos artesanais.

Antes de voltarmos para o nosso hotel, paramos em um restaurante chamado “Mi Casa” onde as mesas estão estrategicamente localizadas entre árvores, fazendo você se sentir como se estivesse no quintal de alguém. No Mi Casa, eu também tive a minha primeira serenata realizadas por mariachis. Awe, foi tão lindo! Eu pedi para eles cantarem minhas músicas favoritas em espanhol: “Paloma ” e ” Besa-me”. Realmente muito especial…

Nós celebramos o feriado americano de 4th of Julho no incrível e belíssimo hotel One & Only em Palmilla. Que lugar mágico! A comida estava maravilhosa e as pessoas que trabalham lá são super acolhedoras e simpáticas.  Mal posso esperar para voltar!
