Brazil - the brand
I just checked e-mail I have received from Hunkemoller (a very popular lingerie/bikini/nightwear brand in the NL) and then I discovered they have a new line of products called "Brazilian". I couldn't figure out what makes them exactly "Brazilian". But then quickly I started to "catch" the idea.
The models below look pretty Brazilian.
Well... Most Brazilian girls when living abroad have problems about finding suitable underwear. The slips in Holland (at leat by the Hema and Hunkermoller) used to be big (boxers) or tiny & uncomfy (strings). Nothing decent and charming for big butts. This Brazilian line and specially the pattern from Hunermoller reminded me a bit of the Brazilian lace and cut from DeMillus and DuLoren. Thumbs up for Hunkemoller !!!
And yesterday in the evening I passed by my favorite drugstore and spotted some products of L'Orèal . One hair colour is called "Brazilia".
Yes !! Not exactly black but very dark brown. Exactly the hair shade of the majority of people in Brazil. I think I go back to the Dirx and purchase some Brazilia in order to provide extra shine to my hair. In the UK you can find another shade of brown called... Brazil Brown. It is strange. Not exactly sun-kissed, not exactly brown. Have a look:
Anyway... I am a bit happier now living in Holland and expressing a bit more of my Brazilian... ess !! I still miss many Brazilian products though. :(
