Mónica Albuquerque from the store Maria do Mar

Monica Albuquerque, who is the energy and good taste behind the store for children (and not only) Maria do Mar?

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

Monica has very good taste and aesthetic sense, it is worth browsing her site and if you can go to the store, who knows, maybe take a course in her Academia de Artes. I am so glad you accepted this invitation and be a part of these mini interviews from MPL'beauty so we can take a few extra tips from what she shares with us today.

 I hope you enjoy it as much as I do 💙
