Mónica Albuquerque from Maria do Mar store

Monica Albuquerque, who is the energy and good taste behind the store for children (and beyond) Maria do Mar?

For me, it's one of those virtual crushes ... those people that we immediately sympathize with simply by talking virtually (but very soon, I hope, we'll be together in person).

Mónica has great taste and aesthetic sense, it's worth browsing her website and if you can go to the store, she knows how to take a course at her Arts Academy . I'm very happy that she accepted this invitation and took part in these MPL'beauty mini interviews so that we can get some extra tips from what she shares with us today.

I hope you like it as much as I do 💙
