How I wear Red

spring summer trends red jumpsuit 2016

EN   I don’t often wear red, but when I do I make sure to make a statement. I tend to go with a full red outfit, I think it looks so much cooler. I also like to wear loose clothes, without any embellishments or  too many accessories.  I think the biggest thing when it comes to wearing red is – less is more. Don’t overdo it, don’t wear matchy accessories or crazy jewelry. You want to look put together, but not like you’re trying too much.

For today I chose the most basic jumpsuit ever. It’s actually from the beach collection at Primark. You’re supposed to wear it on your holiday, on top of your swimsuit and with a pair of espadrilles probably. But I decided to upgrade the look by simply wearing some cool open toe boots. And that’s pretty much it. It’s comfortable but still chic. The colour makes it really fun and perfect for these sunny days. I don’t know about you, but I love how the weather’s been lately. I’m always listening to music, having way more energy than usual, and just being really happy all the time 🙂


RO   Nu port prea des rosu, dar atunci cand port aleg o tinuta statement. Mi se pare ca e cu totul o alta tinuta atunci cand porti predominant ceva rosu. Insa ceva ce te sfatuiesc e sa nu o duci prea departe. Evita sa iti asortezi hainele cu incaltamintea si accesoriile. Nu vrei sa fii prea asortata. De asemenea, o tinuta mai lejera e mult mai chic decat o rochie rosie ca focul, mulata, poate si mai scurta ori cu spatele gol. Deja culoarea rosie e suficienta, incearca sa ai un echilibru. Vrei sa arati aranjata, dar nu ca si cum incerci prea mult. Eu iti recomand o abordare simplista, mai ales acum pentru zilele de vara – cu parul lejer, incaltaminte decupata si in culori neutre, machiaj minim. Iar ochelarii de soare pot complimenta tinuta, dupa cum spuneam si aici

Cam asta am facut eu azi – am ales un jumpsuit de la colectia de vacanta chiar. Se presupune sa-l porti pe plaja, peste costumul de baie. Insa eu am zis ca merge mai bine-asa cu botinele mele decupate. Mai ales ca nu merg degraba la plaja. Si oricum, mereu imi place sa experimentez. Materialul e atat de comod, iar croiul e super lejer – la fix pentru o zi petrecuta prin oras, la soare. Voi purtati rosu des? Si daca da, cum?

How to Rock Sunglasses in 2016

cheapasssunglasses affordable sunglasses

EN  For years I refused to wear sunglasses even if I was blinded by the sun. I absolutely hated how I looked with sunglasses on, but thankfully things changed and went even a bit too far. I love my sunnies now and I like experimenting. I will always choose the weirdest shapes and try them on. Of course that 90% of them look too weird on me and they’re a pass, but I did manage to add to my collection some cool ones that actually complement my face. I do love my Ray Bans and Police – they are high quality, classic, just perfect.

However, this blog post is all about experimenting with style. It’s all about convincing you to go and buy a pair. So I decided to make a list of very affordable brands that still look really cool and are for completely different looks. I’m trying to convince you to have a go and play with sunglasses, you’ll have fun! It’s all about practice and using some tips. So it’s time for me to share my wisdom with you on how to rock sunglasses this spring/summer:


RO  Ani de zile am refuzat categoric sa port ochelari de soare. Eram de-a dreptul ingrozita de cum aratam cu ei. Si acum am in minte imaginea cu mine in fata oglinzii total descurajata de cum arat cu ochelari de soare. Ajunsesem la concluzia ca nu sunt facuta pentru asta. Insa cu norocul totul a luat o intorsatura – nu numai ca port ochelari de soare des, dar mi-am achizitionat niste modele tare ciudate. Ma duc in magazine si nu ma atrag decat ramele iesite din comun, culorile diferite. Asa ca azi vreau sa va arat cateva perechi din colectie.

Desi trebuie sa recunosc ca cel mai adesea aleg perechea preferata de Ray Ban, sau clasicii Police, astazi va vorbesc doar despre ochelari ieftini. Pentru ca vreau ca postarea de azi sa fie pentru oricine. Si mai vreau sa va incurajez sa incercati sa experimentati cu ochelarii de soare – de aceea nu va voi recomanda niciodata sa investiti o suma mare daca nu sunteti hotarate. Vreau sa vedeti ca doar schimband ochelarii de soare, am cu totul o alta tinuta. Pentru mine e tare fain si e o metoda usoara de-a schimba un look. Am creat conceptul in limba engleza, dar scrieti-mi un comentariu daca nu intelegeti totul, va stau la dispozitie oricand. Iar acum, sa-i dam drumul!

How to Wear Printed Trousers – Look Two (Office)

Trousers - Red Valentino (tradesy.com) | Green Print - inpurt.com)
Trousers – Red Valentino (tradesy.com) | Green Print – inpurt.com)

EN Last time I promised you I’m going to style these bad boys in different ways, to show you how easy it can be to play with printed trousers. For a put together look, choose a shirt that has the same colour that you can find in the trousers. It’s going to look like a nice match. It’s even better if you stay away from white or black. You’ll make your outfit more playful if you find a shirt in a bold colour. It’s also a look that you can wear on a casual night out. To balance the outfit, I went with a blazer – it kind of looks like it’s a suit. And then the shoes are elegant, yet simple enough so the focus remains on the clothes. Which one do you prefer so far? 

———————-

RO Ultima data v-am promis ca am sa va arat o tinuta office cu faimosii pantaloni de la H&M. Am ales o camasa portocalie ce se regaseste in printul pantalonilor. Si acesta e secretul, my friends! Alegeti o camasa intr-o culoare mai puternica, sa fie cat mai apropiata de printul pantalonilor. Si incercati sa evitati alb sau negru, tocmai pentru a crea o tinuta mai interesanta. Pentru a balansa culorile, alegeti accesorii in culori neutre. In cazul meu, sacoul alb iti da senzatia de costum, desi nu e. Iar pantofii negri ii dau o eleganta tinutei, insa nu compromit jocul de culori al hainelor. Cu tinuta asta m-as duce atat la servici, cat si in oras. Voi ce idee preferati? Cea de azi, sau cea de data trecuta?

#withOxfam Bloggers Against Poverty

AndraDorolti #withOxfam

EN   I am happy to say that I’ve teamed up #withOxfam to raise awareness about the Democratic Republic of Congo, a country which is still recovering after years of conflict. The Kibati camp provides shelter to over 55,000 people still endangered because of the current situation. Oxfam’s mission is to help people with providing safe water, sanitation equipment and hygiene essentials in an emergency. Please see more information on the Oxfam official website – here

It’s also beautiful to see how people remain creative and try to make a living out of their passion. Talented individuals have carried their sewing machines in this camp in order to provide for their families. They create garments for the Kibati camp, charging for their services between 8p and £1.50. When I read all about it, I had to give Oxfam a hand in spreading the message. You can donate here. Let’s be #withOxfam!

How to Wear Printed Trousers – Look One

Trousers - Red Valentino (tradesy.com) | Green Print - inpurt.com)
Trousers – Red Valentino ( from tradesy.com) | Green Print – from inprnt.com

EN  To go on with our last conversation about prints and how to style them, I started building different looks using the same pair of printed trousers. And they’re not only different looks, but different styles. I want to show you how you can wear these printed trousers on different occasions. It’s all about being practical, especially when your wardrobe is not big enough (which never happens). Today’s approach is the casual look. A very comfortable outfit idea using white only. Remember what I said about white? Makes everything look more neat. Replace my trousers with any other trousers and you’ll still end up with a nice look – easy peasy! 

The next look is going to be wearing these bad boys at the office, so stay tuned! Until then, let me know how you wear your prints, and what are your favourite prints? Leave me a comment below 🙂

—————————

RO   Ca sa continuam conversatia de data trecuta, am hotarat sa ramanem la capitolul print si cum purtam aceste haine. Azi vreau sa va vorbesc despre pantalonii colorati. Ideea mi-a venit de la H&M, unde e o nebunie de optiuni pentru pantalonii cu printuri si n-am rezistat tentatiei. Insa pantalonii cu print sunt mai cu mo. Pot sa accentueze defectele, pot sa ne faca mai mici si mai indesate plinute, ne pot incarca tinuta si ne e mai greu sa ii purtam. Asa ca am hotarat sa creez o serie de tinute in care port aceiasi pantaloni, insa in diferite stiluri. Vreau sa va arat cum sa purtati pantaloni cu print pentru diverse ocazii. Eu asa fac cu fiecare haina din garderoba mea – imi place sa fiu practica pentru ca n-am niciodata destule haine (cine are?). Pentru astazi am ales o tinuta casual, cea mai simpla combinatie posibila. Tineti minte ce spuneam despre alb? Ca face totul sa arate mult mai bine? Si daca inlocuiti pantalonii mei cu orice alta pereche (si alte culori) tot veti avea un look reusit. 

Urmeaza sa va arat cum port eu pantalonii astia la birou. Insa pana atunci, poate-mi spuneti si voi cateva idei. Voi cum purtati printuri? Si ce printuri purtati de obicei? Lasati-mi un comentariu mai jos 🙂

How to wear Pastel Floral this Spring

Pastel Floral Outfit Idea Spring Trends 2016

EN  I am a fan of pastels, but not florals – but today I managed to fall in love with my new Pastel Floral Dress from Glamorous. And on top of that, I’m in the mood of actually buying some more. I’ve noticed I do have a pattern in choosing what I like, so I don’t feel overwhelmed by so much flower power. And here is what I found: First of all, mixing the pastel floral with white makes it look more premium and easy on the eyes. Secondly, the outfit should be summer like: flowy, with bare legs or shoulders. I also like to wear it with minimum make up and natural hair. I wouldn’t mix floral patterns either if it’s not my cup of tea. Don’t get me wrong, some girls are rocking different prints and they look stunning, but this is more of a “beginner’s guide”. Last but not least, big chunky sweaters can replace the casual coat to give it more of a feminine touch. And that’s how I would wear pastel florals, let me know what’s your choice in a comment below 🙂

——————————————-

RO  Sunt o mare fana a pastelurilor, insa nu a printului floral. Insa de data asta m-am indragostit de o rochie ce le combina pe amandoua. Ba mai mult decat atat, parca-mi place tare mult combinatia si-mi fug ochii tot dupa printuri asemanatoare. Raman oricum rezervata la capitolul print floral si am observat ca am un stil aparte care mi se pare acceptabil. Asa ca am zis sa va impartasesc si voua cateva idei de-a incerca printul asta. In primul rand, albul in combinatie cu orice face tinuta mai eleganta si printul mai discret. A doua abordare e o tinuta lejera de vara, cu volanase si preferabil picioare/spate/umeri goi si un machiaj minimalist, cu par natural. Iar in loc de geaca, un pulover mare si pufos deasupra. Un ultim sfat e sa ai doar un obiect vestimentar cu print floral. Nu zic, unele fete combina diverse printuri intr-un mod extraordinar – dar asta e un “ghid de incepatori” la capitolul asta, so don’t push it. Cam asta-i musai pentru mine sa ma simt bine in haine pastelate si inflorite. Voi cum abordati acest stil? Nu ezitati sa-mi scrieti mai jos! 🙂

FORZA ShakeItSlim – REVIEW

Forza ShakeItSlim Supplements Weight Loss Program Meal Replacement

EN   7 days ago I started a special diet: the Meal Replacement Forza ShakeItSlim Shakes. This starter pack comes with: one cool bottle, 14 protein shake bags. It’s supposed to help with weight loss, by replacing 2 meals per day. The same week I had my Birthday and the Easter Sunday. So of course I did not lose any weight, but they did help me eat less and not gain any weight with all the eating out and cakes and drinks I had. Here is my feedback:

The package is so practical, I love it. The fact that each portion comes in a separate bag is awesome. You can enjoy your shake anywhere, shove it in your handbag and you’re done! Also the bottle is really cool – it has a ball which makes the shake easier to dissolve, so you don’t get those bumps when you drink.

The flavours – is cool that they send you 3 different flavours. Trust me, you need it! If you drink that many shakes you want a bit of variety. My favourite one was the Vanilla one.

The taste was too sweet for me. I love sweet things but imagine having this twice a day- it can get a bit too sweet. That’s why sometimes I only had one shake. But I love that it instantly takes away the sweet cravings. And it has no sugar in it. So for me it was rather: replacing a desert with a shake than a whole meal.

Overall I found it difficult to replace 2 meals with the shakes, not because of the shakes but because of me – I prefer more food. But I did have less cravings and, like I said, after a heavy eating week I have to say I didn’t gain any weight. On the opposite, I feel lighter and fresh. I will continue to have FORZA shakes as a replacement for deserts, as they have only 204 calories/portion.

Forza ShakeItSlim Supplements review

RO  Acum 7 zile am inceput programul de shake-uri de la Forza ShakeItSlim Supplements. Pachetul contine: o sticla, 14 pungulite cu praf proteic in trei arome: ciocolata, vanilie, capsuni. Ei promit ca vei slabi daca inlocuiesti doua mese cu cate doua shake-uri pe zi. Eu n-am facut tocmai asa, insa trebuie sa recunosc ca m-au ajutat intr-o saptamana plina de rasfaturi: ziua mea si pastele catolic. Mai jos parerea mea:

Pachetul in sine e foarte practic. Pentru prima data vad shake-uri proteice in pungulite separate. E perfect, pui cate-un plic in geanta si il consumi cand ti-e foame fara sa cari prea multe cu tine. Sticla e super, merge si la sala sau excursii, iar biluta din interior ajuta la amestecarea shake-ului, asa ca nu ai gogoloasele alea enervante. 

Diferitele arome fac shake-ul mai interesant si mai usor de consumat. Imagineaza-ti sa bei de doua ori pe zi acelasi lucru – eu cel putin m-as satura imediat! Aroma mea preferata a fost cea de vanilie.

Gustul prea dulce pentru gustul meu. Am consumat si alte shake-uri si trebuie sa recunosc ca nu au fost asa dulci. De aceea cateodata am consumat mai putin decat mi-am propus. Insa m-au ajutat ca mi-au redus din poftele pentru dulce. 

Per total pot sa spun ca nu m-am tinut de treaba: Doua shake-uri in loc de masa. Ci mai degraba am facut cate-un shake in loc de desert, sau seara cand mi-era foame si nu voiam sa mananc ceva mai consistent. Pentru asta cred ca sunt foarte bune. Dupa cum spuneam: am avut ziua de nastere, am sarbatorit pastele, am consumat mult prea multe calorii in plus insa nu m-am ingrasat deloc. Dimpotriva, ma simt fresh si deloc balonata. Shake-urile m-au facut sa ma simt mai plina mai repede si mi-au redus din pofta de dulce. Pentru asta le voi mai consuma pe viitor – ca o alternativa la dulce. Mai ales ca nu contin zahar deloc.

♥ Andra

Thank you Forza ShakeItSlim for sending me the supplements.

Happy in Pink this Spring

spring outfit pink colors h&m hollister converse

EN   I don’t know about you, but when it’s sunny outside I am a completely different person. My energy levels are already much higher and I am ready to take on the world. We’ve had so much clear blue sky lately that I felt inspired, more productive and more relaxed. And my wardrobe is starting to change too – it’s that exciting time of the year when I get to wear more colour and show some skin. So I had to make my entrance in a pink outfit. I forgot how much I love this colour, it used to be 80% of my closet. I don’t wear it that much nowadays, but it still remains my favourite colour. What’s your favourite colour? Don’t forget to embrace it this spring!

—————————-

RO   Diminetile insorite au un impact foarte mare asupra mea. Ma simt automat mai energica, dornica sa fiu mai productiva si mult mai relaxata in acelasi timp. In ultima vreme ne-am bucurat de dimineti insorite si a fost deosebit. Si incetisor starea mea de bine se transfera si la tinutele de zi cu zi – ma atrag iar culorile vii si hainele vaporoase. Mi-e tare dor de vremea buna si plimbarile in oras fara geaca pe mine, cam ceva in genul tinutei de azi, care n-ar putea fi mai roz. Si-mi aduce aminte de garderoba mea de acum cativa ani: cred ca 80% era roz. Mi-am adus aminte cat de mult imi placea culoarea asta…si cred ca a ramas culoarea mea preferata si acum. Si ma bucur ca vine vara incetisor, abia astept sa-ncep sa port mai multa culoare.

British Rose – The Body Shop Launch Event

british rose palete review and makeup

EN   Last week I was lucky enough to go to the launch of the British Rose collection, by The Body Shop. I had a proper pamper day: using different Body Shop products to cleanse and deep moisturize my face and then having my make up done with the new British Rose palette, by the Body Shop makeup artist. The new collection is designed to make you look fresh and natural this summer. It’s all about enhancing your natural beauty, with a bit of rose cheeks and pink lips. The eye makeup was also very light, a bit shimmery – like a cool summer evening. My favourite product from the new collection is probably the palette, but I also loved the hand cream – very moisturizing but light at the same time, if that makes sense. I love the smell too, very fresh and summery like. So go ahead and have a play with the new collection in the stores, you’ll love it!

———————–

RO  Saptamana trecuta am participat la lansarea unei noi colectii din gama The Body Shop: British Rose. E o colectie pe baza de trandafir, cu diverse produse pentru ingrijirea pielii, o paleta makeup si rujuri tip stain ce pot fi folosite atat pe buze cat si pe fata, pentru a crea bujori. Imi place tare mult noua colectie pentru ca prezinta ideea de fresh, natural. Produsele de ingrijire promit o curatare si o hidratare pentru un ten mai lucios. Iar cele de makeup vin in culori foarte naturale, ce imit ideea de no make up. Am fost norocoasa sa incerc o sumedenie de produse, mi-au curatat fetele fata, m-au masat, iar apoi makeup artistul mi-a facut un machiaj usor, de vara, asa cum imi place mie. Colectia British Rose a fost creata sa iti accentueze caracteristicile personale, sa iti lumineze usor fata si sa iti ofere protectie tenului – iar eu zic ca au nimerit-o la fix! body shop launch event british rose manchester city centre

I’ve Got it from My Mama

vintage clothes mum's clothes

EN  When I went home last time, I found this cute top and skirt outfit that used to be part of my mum’s closet a long time ago. I love my mum’s old style and I would love to own more of her clothes. But hear me out: most of them won’t fit me. Because when she was my age, she would have a 22.5 inches waist. That’s right. She was a good looking lady with a tiny waist. So imagine how happy I was to fit in this one. I love everything about it and I will keep it safe. Who knows? Maybe one day my daughter will wear it too.

———————-

RO  Tinuta de azi apartine mamei mele, de pe vremea cand era ea de varsta mea. In ciuda anilor, calitatea materialului a ramas aproape neschimbata, iar stilul mi se pare inca deosebit. Asta arata ca daca investesti in ceva clasic, va ramane valoros mereu. Ma bucur ca-mi vine la fix tinuta si am s-o pun bine. Poate intr-o zi fiica mea o va purta si ea, la randul ei. Stiti ca nu e prima data cand ma imbrac in hainele mamei, si nu va fi nici ultima! Imi place mult stilul ei si sper sa-i placa si ei tinuta de azi, purtata de o noua generatie, intr-o tara indepartata, intr-o cultura diferita.
