Hello folks! I'm Marília Breite, I love to write about my life experiences here at Papel com Clips. I live in Leuven, a small town in Belgium, but I was born in Campinas - São Paulo. I have a degree in Political Science, but my true passion is history and archaeology. Since I was a little girl I've been dreaming about medieval castles, ancient pyramids and to travel the world. Now, after many ups and downs, my childhood dreams have come true. Through this blog, I've had the privilege to inspire many other girls and women to do the same: to believe in themselves and to achieve their goals. Is not this wonderful?

Putting the Belle in Belgium

last year

My website comes from a love of all things Southern food, decorating, and hosting, with a few entertaining travel stories in between. Everyday, Im just doing my best to mesh the old and the new and have a few friends over for brunch and dinner to celebrate. Besides, you can take the girl out of Texas, but you cant take Texas out of the girl.

Relocated to Belgium since July 2016 under a cohabitation visa. My blog is to document my journey in Belgium. The first series that I have written is "Legal Cohabitation Visa for a Well-Prepared Battle". It is to help people with a similar situation like me - applying for a cohabitation visa in Belgium. Subsequently, I hope to spend more time in the future writing about my travel in Belgium and other parts of Europe. Not forgetting about the love of many people. That is food search. I would like to introduce more Asian food since it is my number one love. Coming from Singapore which is an international food paradise, I would be able to tell you what are quality, authentic Asian cuisine. Yum... Yum...
