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)!

Custom Made


En: So, I'm done! With Med School and my residency exam, that is. From now on, I'll be a dermatologist and I'm feeling super excited to finally start working. These past few months have been a marathon, one I didn't finish first, but close enough to feel good about myself and to feel grateful that all my hard work paid off. Also, I guess this means I'll be back to posting more than once a month and I'll resume reading some pretty great blogs I know I've been missing on (sorry, guys, can't wait to get back to you :D). A lot of plans, a lot more than I'd have the time to explain over here, so let's get analyzing my outfit instead: black, gray, burgundy. Simple, but made me feel priceless - maybe the custom made skirt has something to do with it? It fits perfectly (because it's made after my measurements), I love the shape (because I chose it myslef from their selection) and the color is amazing (because once again, I was able to pick it from many, many fabrics). So, if you're looking to spoil yourself with a custom made item of clothing, I highly recommend Sumissura as I think there's nothing better than clothes that fit like a dream!

Ro: Cele mai grele 5 luni. S-au terminat saptamana trecuta, o data cu examenul de rezidentiat. De azi inainte, sunt medic rezident dermatolog :D S-au terminat multe saptamana trecuta, cum ar fi pauza de la citit ce imi place (carti, reviste, bloguri la care astept cu nerabdare sa ma intorc), lipsa convorbirilor telefonice de 2 ore cu prietenele si tanjeala dupa iesiri la cafea in dupa-mesele ploioase. Lista e mult mai lunga, asa ca o sa ma opresc aici (ca sa va scriu vreo 2 cuvinte si despre tinuta de azi). Gri, negru si visiniu inchis, culorile mele favorite momentan. Dar mai mult decat cromatica aleasa, imi place fusta facuta la comanda pe site-ul celor de la Sumissura - imi vine perfect (pentru ca e facuta dupa dimensiunile mele), e cu talie inalta si are lungimea perfecta pentru mine (pentru ca eu am ales modelul), iar culoarea...mai are rost sa spun ceva despre ea? (am ales din peste 50 de variante de materiale). Daca vreti sa va rasfatati (pentru ca ati scapat de un examen greu sau...pur si simplu pentru ca toti meritam asta din cand in cand), va recomand cu incredere acest site. La urma urmei, nu e nicio haina mai frumoasa decat cea care ne vine perfect!

Going to College


I was wearing: coat - get it HERE; top - Zara; pants - Vero Moda; shoes - All Shoes; sunglasses - Meli Melo.
Am purtat: palton - il gasiti AICI; bluza - Zara; pantaloni - Vero Moda; pantofi - All Shoes; ochelari de soare - Meli Melo.

En: I think having just graduated, I'm feeling quite nostalgic this fall. I always pictured autumn as the time for new beginnings, which it was - a new school year was the perfect time to start fresh and set goals for myself both in school and on a personal level. I believe as humans we are a constant work in progress and the need to better ourselves should always stick with us and what beter time to challenge that need than fall? On a more shallow note, fall also meant new clothes and new outfit possibilities. And since I already worn you I'm feeling nostalgic, the outfit today is my take on the perfect college look - simple, classy, comfortable and with a twist on the color scheme. I even brought my books to match it!

Ro: Toamna. Cate s-ar putea spune despre ea, cate s-au si spus, de fapt. Dar poate ca e mai bine sa o las in grija poetilor si sa va spun, foarte pe scurt, cateva vorbe despre tinuta de azi. Trebuie sa mentionez ca e o tinuta nascuta din nostalgie (am absolvit de curand) si a fost primul Octombrie fara cursuri si stagii. Asa ca am facut un mic exercitiu de imaginatie - cum m-as fi imbracat daca...? si asta e rezultatul. Asta as fi purtat in prima zi de facultate: simplu, clasic, comod, in roz, negru si visiniu. Linkul pentru paltonul roz se gaseste putin mai sus :)!

October Wishlist

En: Given that these past few months have been extremely stressful and with no time to spare, shopping has been the last thing on my mind. But now that the temperatures are seriously dropping, I find myself in desperate need of some cozy knits and warm coats. As far as colors go, I'm mostly in a black phase, but I'll take a little pink every now and then. I already ordered one of these, can you guess which?

Ro: Avand in vedere ca utimele luni au fost extrem de aglomerate si stresante, timp de cumparaturi nu prea am avut. Dar acum, cu temperaturile in continua scadere, simt ca e nevoie de un update la mine in garderoba. Cateva pulovere pufoase, un palton nou si o fusta scurta pe care s-o port cu cizme peste genunchi sunt doar cateva exemple (din multele lucruri de care as avea nevoie). Cromatic, sunt intr-o faza in care as purta gri sau negru in fiecare zi, dar m-am gandit ca poate o pata de roz m-ar binedispune, asa ca paltonul nr. 1 se indreapta deja spre mine...

The Wicked Witch

DSC_0206 copy

En: I couldn't help myself with the title. I feel like it's a hat a witch would wear so no other description seemed better. I wore this for a morning at the Zoo with my boyfriend this morning. We finally had a day off and decided to spend it outdoors, walking for as much as we could, admiring beautiful animals, but also feeling a little sad for them, so far from their natural habitat. I hope you like my look and I hope you had a magnificient Sunday!

Double Pink


En: As I'm writing this, lazy on my couch, with Fashion TV on the background, I realize how amazing it feels to have a day off every now and then. I haven't had one of these for a couple of months, so I surely appreciate it. Now that I'm done with my thesis exam (yay!), I figured it was time for a blog post before I hide behind piles of books again (still got my residency in November). I hope you like this black look, brightened only by the hair and pumps. Have a nice week everyone!

Ro: Va scriu aceste randuri de pa canapeaua mea confortabila, unde am stat toata ziua, uitandu-ma la Fashion TV. Am uitat cat e de bine sa avem o zi libera, lipsita de griji, in care nu am facut mai nimic, dar mi-am incarcat bateriile si mi-am odihnit mintea. Aveam mare nevoie de o astfel de zi dupa examenul de licenta (de care am scapat cu bine) si m-am gandit ca inainte de a ma intoarce la mormanele de carti de pe birou (rezidentiatul e de-abia in noiembrie), o noua postare ar fi recomandata. Sper sa va placa tinuta asta all black purtata cu tocurile roz neon Poema de care am fost nedespartita in ultima vreme!



I was wearing: blazer - Mango; t-shirt - Nike; leggings - United Colors of Benetton, get them HERE; pumps - Poema, get them HERE.
Am purtat: sacou - Mango; tricou - Nike; colanti - United Colors of Benetton, ii gasiti AICI; pantofi - Poema, ii gasiti AICI.

Run and Buy: Summer Slides

En: They're everywhere. Either the classic Birkenstocks or the more subtle version of summer slides. It took me a while to decide whether I could really walk around in them, but I eventually gave in. Now I can rarely be seen wearing other shoes, so I deicided to put up a list of my favorites, maybe you'll give in, too. Happy shopping!

Ro: Sunt peste tot. Fie clasicii Birkenstock sau vreo reinterpretare de-a lor. Exista toate culorile si toate modelele, pentru orice buget. Mie mi-a luat o vreme sa ma hotarasc daca as putea sa ma incalt asa (cam de vara trecuta cand au inceput timid sa apara in fotografiile de streetstyle), dar, de curand, am cedat. Acum, daca ne intalnim pe strada sigur o sa ma vedeti incaltata in Birkenstock (rar mai port altceva). Mai jos, am alcatuit o lista cu variantele mele preferate, sa stiti unde ii gasiti daca va tenteaza :) Spor la cumparaturi!
