To the Rescue!


En: This hat comes to my rescue yet another time. You know, dark roots already showing and no time for the hair salon - usual girl drama! But let us not divert too much from the topic of my outfit: classical coat, high waisted jeans and over the knee boots; I was looking for comfort yesterday and it was an accomplished mission. Have a great Sunday everyone, I'll be spending mine in pijamas as I've been dreaming of a relaxing weekend all through the week! :)

Ro: In urma cu aproximativ 3 ani nu aveam nici macar o palarie. Acum am doua cutii albe, rotunde, facute la comanda, care ascund cate 3 palarii fiecare. Preferata mea ramane cea din imagini, un cadou foarte atent si foarte frumos (si perfect ca sa imi ascund eu radacinile nevopsite :)). Am tanjit dupa un weekend relaxant toata saptamana, asa ca tinuta mea de ieri e una extrem de comoda: palton clasic, jeansi cu talie inalta si cizme joase, fara pic de toc. Astazi planuiesc o zi intreaga in pijamale si cred ca asa o sa reusesc sa infrunt ziua de luni cu mai mult curaj. O duminica minunata va doresc!


I was wearing: coat - Stradivarius (old); top - Massimo Dutti; jeans and hat - Zara; boots and backpack - Steve Madden bought on www.fashiondays.ro.
Am purtat: palton - Stradivarius; bluza - Massimo Dutti; jeansi si palarie - Zara; cizme si rucsac - Steve Madden de pe www.fashiondays.ro.

OTK Boots?

En: I don't know about you, but I've been searching for a good pair of over-the-knee boots forever. And I've come across a few, but none were even close to budget friendly. So, if you're anything like me (anxiously looking for a pair, but don't feel like splurging), I highly recommend you click on these links - I went for no. 2 and can't wait for them to arrive!

Ro: Cizmele peste genunchi - le tot caut de ceva vreme, dar nu a fost usor sa gasesc o pereche care sa fie suficient de frumoase, dar sa nu am nevoie de credit de nevoi personale pentru ele. Luna ianuarie cu nelipsitele sale reduceri m-a salvat, insa. Daca esti si tu intr-o situatie asemanatoare, un click pe oricare din linkurile de mai sus si ai rezolvat problema. Eu am ales perechea numarul 2 si promit multe fotografii de indata ce ajung!

Not 50 Shades of Grey


En: Only about 4. Shades of Grey. I know some people prefer to brighten up gloomy days with colorful outfits, but it's obviously not my case, I chose to play the monochromatic, weather friendly, card. Still, I hope you find some inspiration in this look as I'll be short with my writing today - my job is amazing, but exhausting, so I'll go catch up on some much needed sleep right now!

Ro: Gri. Vreo 4 tonuri diferite pentru ca am de unde (imi place si imi tot cumpar, n-ai ce-i face!). Stiu ca as fi putut sa ma razvratesc impotriva vremii si sa incerc sa fortez soarele cu un outfit colorat, dar m-a tentat mai mult ideea de a ma incadra perfect in decor. Sper sa gasiti putintica inspiratie in tinuta asta; mai multe nu spun, sunt zgarcita cu vorbele pentru ca mi-am propus un somn de peste 8 ore in noaptea asta, ceea ce inseamna ca ar trebui sa ma retrag cam...acum!


I was wearing: coat, skirt and shoes - Zara; sweater - Minim; scarf - can't remember?!
Am purtat: palton, fusta si botine - Zara; pulover - Minim; esarfa - primita cadou, nu imi amintesc de unde?!

January Wishlist


4. Black High Waist Belt Pleated Skirt

En: New Year doesn't always mean New Me, but it definitely means new clothes. Especially with the sales popping up everywhere. I know I can't resist them, so I put together a (small) absolutely random wishlist of things I could make room in my closet for. Happy shopping!

Ro: Poate ca noul an nu inseamna neaparat schimbare pentru toata lumea, dar da-mi voie sa presupun ca inseamna o garderoba innoita. Nu atat din cauza inceputului de an, ci mai mult din cauza reducerilor care ne asalteaza online si offline deopotriva. Eu una sunt o victima sigura, mi-am si alcatuit wishlist-ul, iar daca ceva va face cu ochiul, dati un click :)

It's 2015!


En: Happy New Year! May 2015 be everything you expect it to be! For me, it will be one hell of a year, overflowing with major life changes (I'll start working tomorrow, I'll get married in 6 months and there's a lot more to come, bu I'll tackle it one challenge at a time). These photos have been waiting for over a week now, but I couldn't get around to posting them (the very busy Holiday season kept me away from my computer - as it should). I hope you like the scenery as much as I did - it's the hystorical Alba Iulia during Christmas time and my red and white outfit seemed most appropriate!

Ro: E 4.01. 2015. As putea sa scriu multe, dar cred ca daca spun " Un 2015 perfect!" rezum toate urarile de bine in doar 3 cuvinte. Pentru mine se anunta un an cel putin interesnt - maine incep sa lucrez ca medic rezident (emotii, emotii, nod in stomac...), in aproximativ 6 luni vine si nunta (emotii, si mai mari emotii...) si cine mai stie cate alte aventuri neasteptate o sa imi aduca acest an?! O sa iau provocarile pe rand si sper ca la sfarsitul celor 12 luni, sa pot afirma ca 2015 a fost cel mai bun an din viata mea - asta e singura mea rezolutie (o nimica toata :D). Fotografiile de astazi asteapta cuminti, de mai bine de o saptamana, sa fie postate - locatia e Cetatea Alba Iulia, un loc foarte drag mie (si foarte fotogenic), iar tinuta in nuante de rosu si alb nu e tocmai ce port zi de zi, dar cu tot Spiritul Sarbatorilor, mi s-a parut extrem de potrivita!


I was wearing: coat - HERE; faux fur collar - H&M; everything else - Zara.
Am purtat: palton - AICI; guler blana - H&M; restul (bluza, colier, pantaloni, botine) - Zara.

En: I know I'm not the only one still rushing to get some last minute Christmas presents. I'm not, am I? No, there's gotta be some other lazy/uninspired people out there. But do not worry, this small gigt guide comes to the rescue! We all have at least a special Her in our lives (mom, sister, bff...), so here are some ideas on cute presents for these ladies:
  • Is she into make up? Well, she's a girl, so of course she's into make up! And no matter how many or few cosmetic products she owns, a red lipstick or a nude eyeshadow palette are suitable for everyone.
  • For the perfectly accessorized girl, a cute golden bracelet will always do the trick. But if you think a piece of jewelry is too predictible, why not get her some beautiful embellished headphones? You know she'll love them!
  • The fashionista - always perfectly dressed, owns more clothes than her closet could hold. So, you think you shouldn't get her more? Well, I say that's wrong - her love of fashion is insatiable and she'll most likely be crazy excited for a fuzzy sweater and some lace shorts (or any other "on trend" item, for that matter).
  • Does she love spending Sundays in bed? Is there someone who doesn't? Maybe it's time to spoil her with the cutest pijamas and a lovely sleeping mask to encourage her to rest properly and take good care of herself because she deserves it.
  • And now here's a little bit of something for everyone: a scented candle, a thick pair of warm socks, an adorable phone case or, my personal favorite, an amazing book ("The Fault in Our Stars" would work for pretty much every girl I know).

Ro: Mai sunt 3 zile. Cu tot cu ziua de azi. Asa ca nu o s-o lungesc prea mult cu vorba. Mai jos - cateva sugestii de cadouri pentru mama, sora, cea mai buna prietena sau orice alta persoana de sex feminin careia vrei sa ii cumperi un mic cadou:
  • E vorba de fata cu machiajul mereu perfect? Sau, dimpotriva, e adepta machiajului natural, foarte putin vizibil? Exista variante de cadouri pentru fiecare: un ruj rosu sau o paleta de farduri de pleoape nude sunt indispensabile!
  • Poate ii cauti un cadou prietenei tale perfect accesorizate (stii tu - fata cu cele mai multe si mai frumoase bijuterii). Poti sa ii imbogatesti colectia cu o bratara interesanta sau, daca vrei ceva mai putin previzibil, incearca o pereche de casti albe cu pietricele aurii - o vor incanta cu siguranta.
  • Fashionista - fata indragostita de moda, cu un dulap deja prea plin. Si totusi, va mai gasi loc in sifonierul sau pentru cadoul de la tine: un pulover pufos,o pereche de pantaloni scurti din dantela sau orice alt obiect vestimentar foarte chic si foarte la moda.
  • Cui nu ii place sa isi petreaca diminetile de Duminica in pat, inconjurata de reviste, carti sau doar cu laptopul si cafeaua? Cum ar fi sa o rasfeti pe mama sau pe cea mai buna prietena cu o pijama fina numai buna pentru astfel de momente? 
  • In final, cateva idei de cadouri numai bune pentru...oricine: o lumanare parfumata, o pereche de sosete pufoase, o husa noua pentru telefon sau, preferata mea, o carte buna (cu "Sub aceeasi stea" a lui John Green mergi la sigur). Spor la cumparat!

Holiday Gift Guide: For Him!

Untitled #79

En: If you're anything like me, you must be freaking out right now, trying to figure out what gifts to get for Him (boyfriend, dad, brother, friend). I tried to put together a small list of suggestions, please treat them as inspiration and feel free to add your personal touch as the beauty of a present lies exactly in you spending precious time thinking of others!
  •  If you're intention is to go big (budget-wise) - a men's watch works every time and he'll never have too many (so, don't worry if he owns quite the collection, there's always room for more).
  •  If your boy is into winter sports, the list is limitless: snowboard, boots, ski helmet, goggles or any other budget friendly sporty item; just make sure to choose the right color to match the rest of his winter gear.
  •  If you're shopping for a guy who's into cooking, a good set of knives could make a really nice, rather unexpected gift. Otherwise, if he's a wine lover you could surprise him with a really classy corkscrew. Bonus points if it comes with his favorite wine!
  •  If you're feeling uninspired one of these works for everyone: pijamas, hat, scarf or a nice set of socks. And if you feel like it's not original enough, go crazy with the packaging!
  •  Last but not least, there are all kinds of gift cards out there, allowing him to choose his own present. But while some may think this is the best gift ever, others find it too impersonal, so be rather careful who you get them for!
  •  Don't be afraid to go wrong! If nothing else, everyone loves to be remembered and will appreciate your beautiful gesture!

Ro: E 8.12.14. Sunt 16 zile pana la Craciun si nu imi place sa aman lucrurile prea mult. Asta inseamna ca ar trebui sa pornesc la vanatoarea anuala de cadouri. Dar ce sa le iau? Ce le-ar placea lor (iubiti, tatici, frati, prieteni)? Nu, nu am raspunsul la aceasta intrebare, dar am cateva sugestii care s-ar putea sa-i surprinda placut:
  •  Daca ai un buget maricel (nu e cazul meu anul asta), un ceas e intotdeauna o idee buna! Da, chiar daca mai are vreo 5, tot o sa se bucure de un nou exemplar adaugat colectiei!
  •  Daca avem de-a face cu un impatimit al sporturilor de iarna, optiunile sunt numeroase: snowboard, casca, gogglesi si orice alte maruntisuri mai gasim pe raionul respectiv. Atentie la culori totusi, un cadou care se potriveste de minune cu restul echipamentului sau arata multa atentie si va fi cu siguranta apreciat !
  •  Daca ii place sa gateasca, un set de cutite de cea mai buna calitate il vor surprinde in mod placut. Iar daca intra in bucatarie doar cat sa aduca paharele de vin, un tirbuson nou insotit de o sticla din vinul lui preferat, ii vor fi foarte pe plac!
  •  Daca acel EL pentru care cumperi cadouri nu se incadreaza in niciuna dintre categoriile de mai sus, exista variante potrivite pentru mai toata lumea: o caciula, un fular, pijamale noi sau un set de sosete. Cadouri simple, dar utile si extrem de necesare!
  •  Ar mai fi varianta gift cardului (si gasesti cate unul peste tot). Totusi, acesta nu e un cadou chiar pentru toata lumea: unii il considera perfect, dar altora li se pare mult prea impersonal. Atentie mare, asadar, si incearca sa-i gasestii pe cei din prima categorie!
  •  Sa nu iti fie frica, nu exista cadouri gresite (doar care vor fi redaruite altora, dar chiar si acelea vor face un om fericit la urma urmei :p)!
