Wedding Guests

EN  Dan and I had the pleasure to go to our friends’ wedding this weekend. We were rushing out the door as we were already late. But my father still took the chance to take some photos of us. And I’m glad he did, as we barely have any photos together. So this post is as simple as that: Dan and Andra as Wedding Guests 🙂


RO  Weekendul trecut Dan si cu mine am avut prima ocazie de-a fi nasi la nunta prietenilor nostri. Deja in intarziere, am iesit in graba pe usa si ne pregateam sa ne bagam in masina cand tata repede ne-a facut niste poze. Si ma bucur tare pentru ca avem putine poze cu noi doi impreuna. Am ales o tinuta cat mai clasica si extrem de comoda. Iar in final acesta a fost rezultatul 🙂

Best Way to Revitalize your Hair

cullotes zara affordable look, short hair

EN  Do you want the quickest way to have a healthy looking hair? I’ve got an answer for you – cut it!! After countless efforts to revitalize my hair I gave up… I took my scissors and cut 6 inches off my dull, dry and very damaged hair. I still don’t have the perfect hair, but it instantly has more volume, looks more fresh and I feel great! It’s quite a big change for me, but I love it. It’s also extremely easy to style, so it’s a win!

The beginning of summer is the perfect opportunity to change your style. Is that time of the year when you go a bit crazy, you go on holidays, wear different clothes, dare to experiment with looks – so why not change your hair too? You can always go back with some good quality hair extensions, so why not take the risk? 😀


 

RO   In ultima vreme am incercat sa-mi las parul cat mai liber, pentru ca era atat de uscat la varfuri incat am zis ca nu mai vreau sa-l stric cu ondulatorul sau presa. Ba mai mult, am exagerat putin cu cantitatile de balsam si tratamentele intensive pentru par. Tot n-am ajuns la rezultatul dorit asa ca intr-o zi m-am enervat si mi-am taiat 15centimetri din par. Yep, 15! Eu singura mi-am facut onoarea, am foarfeca de tuns acasa. M-am asezat frumos in oglinda si am taiat fara frica. Rezultatul? Ma simt fresh si foarte bine! Parul pare mai sanatos, am scapat de varfurile despicate. Am automat si mai mult volum – e perfect!

Vara e anotimpul schimbarilor majore zic eu. E anotimpul in care experimentam mai mult, iesim mai des pe-afara, mergem in excursii, suntem mai energici si mai inspirati – asa ca de ce sa nu ne schimbam si coafura? Iar in caz de ceva, avem de unde sa ne cumparam extensii de par, asa ca risul e mic, I say let’s go for it! 😀

IVY Park at the Gym – REVIEW

ivy park gym review workout gear

EN Hi, my name is Andra and I am a Bee hive member. No, I’m no crazy fan, but I do love Beyonce not onlye as a singer but as a woman. And since I’m listening to her when I’m at the gym, why not wear her clothes too, right? Well, not her actual clothes, but you know what I mean. I was one of the first to check out her collection. I tried loads on and I already knew that these clothes were made for: embracing curves and the body, making it look more feminine and great materials to help with all the sweating at the gym. After a couple of wears I can finally give my verdict and here it is: The fabric technology – it doesn’t feel that special, but it does work! I can honestly say I am most comfortable after a workout when wearing IVY Park. My skin breathes and my clothes are always fry.So hands down to that.

Now on the other hand, all the stories about embracing curves and stuff… I think I might not have the right curves! I am no skinny lady and I have to admit that the leggings do make my waist look tinier which is good. But I have to say that I tried on loads of items in the store and many just looked weird on me. I ended up choosing the basic black tees and leggings. They are good, but I’m no sexier than in my Primarks. I am happy I bought the items and I am also happy with the prices I paid. I know some pieces were crazy expensive, but to be honest they seemed the less practical to me. I have to admit, I bought them because of the brand too. But overall I paid 35 Pounds for the outfit, which I think it’s good. I liked the collection but I did expect something more from Bey. More creativity, more colour and definitely more feminine styles.


RO  Nu stiu daca v-am mai spus, dar eu sunt o fana inraita Beyonce. O admir mult, o ascult mereu la sala si-asa ca de ce sa nu ii port si hainele? Am fost entuziasmata sa vad noua colectie IVY Park si am fost prima la rand la probat. Intr-un interviu exclusiv Vogue, Beyonce descria colectia ca avand doua mari caracteristici: croi special facut pentru fete cu forme, pentru accenatuarea formelor si creearea unei siluete feminine. A doua a fost folosirea unei tehnologii aparte pentru a crea un material cat mai placut pe corp si a nu pastra umiditatea. 

Din punct de vedere material trebuie sa recunosc ca am fost uimita. Ma simt excelent si nu am intalnit echipamente asa bune din punctul asta de vedere. Pielea imi respira foarte bine iar hainele sunt mereu uscate. Insa din punct de vedere – accentuarea formelor si-asa mai departe… nu stiu ce sa spun! Ma stiti doar, nu sunt cea mai subtirica, insa poate n-am nici formele de care vorbea Beyonce. Majoritatea hainelor pe care le-am probat au aratat chiar ciudat. Insa trebuie sa recunosc ca perechea de colanti pe care am ales-o imi face talia mai mica. Dar oricum, a fost un hit and miss. 

Per total sunt multumita de achizitia facuta. Am mers pe principiul simplu alb-negru. Nu am nici cheltuit prea mult. Unele haine erau de-a dreptul exagerat de scumpe. Si si mai exagerat de impractice. Mi-a placut colectia, dar n-a fost nimic WoW. Ma asteptam la ceva mai mult, la ceva cu mai mult caracter. Insa ca si practibilitate la sala – nota zece.

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.
