I was made for summer days

EN   I can’t express how excited I am about this summer. And even though it’s going to be a busy one, I plan to go out and enjoy myself as much as I can. I still can’t believe how much energy I used to have just one year ago. I could easily go to a party and then straight to Uni. No problem at all. Now? Now I just want to sleep. And I love to sleep.  I wake up thinking of coming back home from work and sleep. It usually doesn’t happen but still, it’s not right. I need to get rid of this grandma attitude and I really think that I can change my energy levels now that the summer is back again. So my motto for this summer is – work hard, play hard, have fun!

RO   Cred ca niciodata n-am asteptat vara asa mult cum am asteptat-o anul asta. Si nu am planificat nimic deosebit, e doar asa, in general, sentimentul ala pe care-l simti cand vine vara. Deja obosisem de la atata intuneric, cer innorat si frig. Si ma gandesc la ce energie aveam doar acum un an. Cand mergeam la cate-un chef si apoi direct la facultate si n-aveam nimic. Acum? Acum nu vreau decat sa dorm. Asa mult vreau sa dorm incat primul lucru la care ma gandesc cand ma trezesc e ca vin acasa dupa servici si o sa dorm. Nu se prea intampla asta, insa ideea conteaza. Vremea asta de Anglia m-a dus intr-o stare de pensionara care deja ma cam enerveaza. Asa ca e timpul sa-mi revin iar acum am si mai multe motive sa imi petrec orele afara si nu in pat. Asa ca motto-ul pentru vara asta e – muncit din greu si distractie la maxim!

How everything changes when you turn 25

life goals drama

EN    For the first time in my life I wasn’t happy to celebrate the fact that I’m getting one year older. Before the day, I started feeling melancholic and a bit bad about the fact that I am no way near to where I thought I would be by now. Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t have to be better or worse, it’s just that I thought it would be different. And the biggest disappointment, I guess, was the fact that I always thought that by the time I’ll be 25 everything will be more clear, I would have stability in my life and I would definitely have a clear plan about what’s next. I started feeling a bit lost and thinking why on earth do I still have so many questions that need to be answered and why on earth have I not accomplished everything that I wrote on that list, everything that I dreamed of before I was 14. And then the day came and I turned 25. And just like that all the thoughts, all the drama varnished. Just like that I felt better again. I realised that guess what, ain’t no big deal. And after talking with some of my friends, they’ve told me that they’ve been through this as well. I guess it’s just a phase, I guess it’s just that time when we really want to make a difference, when our passion and motivation bursts. But at the same time we have no patience, we want it all and we want it now. At least, that’s what I feel. So now that I’m 25, I’m back to the old me – no more regrets and more energy – to make myself more proud by the time I turn 26.

RO     Pentru prima data in viata mea nu am asteptat cu bucurie sa-mi sarbatoresc ziua de nastere. Inainte de data cu pricina am inceput sa ma simt ciudat. Ma simteam melancolica si usor dezamagita. De mica aveam in gand cum va fi la 25 de ani (nu stiu de ce tocmai varsta asta) si acum, aproape de prag, simteam ca sunt departe de asteptarile mele. Nu neaparat intr-un sens rau, ci mai mult legat de ceea ce simt. Credeam ca odata ce voi trece de 25 de ani o sa am mai multa stabilitate, o sa-mi fie mai clar ce si cum, o sa fiu mai sigura de ceea ce urmeaza, si da, ca o sa realizez ce mi-am pus in gand de cand eram inca in scoala generala. Si toata supararea asta s-a evaporat instant duminica, de ziua mea. Insant am revenit la normal. Si ce e interesant e ca treacand prin starea asta ciudata am vorbit cu mai multe prietene care au trecut de pragul asta (marele prag). Si toate mi-au confirmat acelasi lucru. Asa ca am ajuns la concluzia ca nu-i asa mare tragedia. E o stare prin care trecem la varsta asta, e o perioada in care avem prea multa pasiune, prea multa motivatie, prea multa dorinta sa facem ceva maret, insa n-avem rabdare deloc. Da’ deloc! Cel putin asta se-ntampla prin cercul meu de prieteni si la resedinta Andra & Dan. Asa ca marea revelatie care mi-a adus-o varsta de 25 de ani e ca mai este timp. So let’s enjoy it!

The office look

I hope you all had a great Christmas! My holiday was wonderful. And yes, a bit too short. Now it’s time for the new year resolutions. And even if it sounds a bit ‘blah’, I always make them. For me, it’s another opportunity to get more motivated and more organised. So yes, challenge accepted!

Another thing that January brings is the enormous sales! Which brings me to the actual topic of today: bargains. And, more specific: my new blazer from H&M which costed 10 pounds. I think it’s a perfect piece for an office look: it’s simple, but with interesting details, the colour is not plain at all and it just adds femininity to the outfit. This is my latest bargain and I hope to add some new pieces to my wardrobe soon! I have something on my mind.. it’s a secret… it’s Victoria’s secret..

Dragi prietenti, sper ca ati avut parte de-un Craciun minunat! Al meu a fost unul frumos, insa prea scurt! M-am bucurat din plin de el. Iar acum am in gand sa-mi fac un plan personal pentru 2014. Stiu ca suna a cliseu, dar pentru mine chiar functioneaza. E o ocazie pentru a ma gandi la ce vreau sa fac sa cresc. Inca nu e gata lista.. dar sper s-o completez curand. 

Si alta lista pe care trebuie (musai) s-o completez in Ianuarie, e lista de cumparaturi! Sunt o mare fana a reducerilor iar in Anglia mereu am de unde-alege. Si-asa am ajuns in sfarsit la topicul acestei postari: noua mea achizitie la reduceri, de la H&M – un sacouas tare dragut, la pretul de aproximativ 55 lei. Mi se pare o piesa de rezistenta pentru o tinuta office. In poze vedeti o Andra cam racita, de-aceea nu prea fotogenica. Si de-aceea doar cateva poze. Insa sper sa va faceti o idee si fugiti repede la H&M daca va place, sa-l mai prindeti!

New boots

black leather jacketIt’s not the first time we see leather/leather look-alike as being on trend. Let’s face it – it’s classic, it’s stylish and it goes with many different outfits. And because I finally found a nice pair of boots, I combined them with a look-alike leather jacket. Black and simple. And to put my signature in it, I chose a cute necklace to make my look more girly. Here’s my look for today. I had to layer up a bit, lately it’s been quite cold outside, brr! So all I want to do right now is light up some candles, drink a hot tea, and reorganise my closet with some warm clothes. What are your plans for this weekend?

—————-

In sfarsit mi-am gasit o pereche de botine! De mult imi cautam…si pana la urma am hotarat sa mi le iau pe cele de la H&M. Imi place textura si demult cautam ceva asemanator. Problema mea vesnica e marimea… port 35 si e un chin sa gasesc ceva, in special in UK. Totusi, deseori imi iau de la H&M marimea 36 si-s bunicele…cred ca au un calapod mai mic. Si bucuroasa de noua achizitie, am purtat botinele cu o geaca de piele articiala. Am zis sa ma asortez! Asa ca va arat tinuta, destul de simpla. Iar acum ma-ntorc la reorganizarea dulapului: e timpul sa scoatem puloverele de la naftalina! Intre timp am aprins cateva lumanari (cu aroma de Craciun – stiu, stiu…) si savurez un ceai fierbinte. Nu stiu la voi cum e, dar aici a cam venit toamna!

Cozy today

blue flowers spring

After a short visit to Uni today, Liz and I stopped in the park nearby to take some pictures. It’s quite cold.. but you can already see lots of flowers here and there, you can already smell the spring!

Dupa o scurta vizita la facultate, am mers putin prin parc impreuna cu Liz, sa facem cateva poze. E cam frig, ce-i drept.. dar deja au aparut multe flori, natura isi revine incet, incet.. se simte c-a venit primavara!

Pastels

Spring is coming and I already started looking for pastels – or pastel garments. I just love these colours, especially the pink and blue shades. I find them feminine, romantic, dreamy, like me. What’s your favourite colour? Do you like pastels?

Vine primavara-ncetisor.. iar eu deja am inceput sa-mi achizitionez haine in culori pastelate. Ador in special nuantele de roz si albastru. Mi se par feminine, romantice, visatoare, asa ca mine. Care e culoarea voastra preferata?

So here’s what I bought: a blazer from H&M and a pair of ballerinas from Primark.

Asa ca uite ce-am cumparat: un sacou H&M si o pereche de balerini  Primark.

Pink H&M

I woke up with a beautiful, sunny day today. So Dan and I had to take a walk to enjoy the weather. And, of course, after 10 minutes, it started to rain!  But it didn’t matter, we had a blast 🙂

M-am trezit cu soare azi. O zi asa frumoasa, c-a trebuit sa ies la o plimbare cu Dan, sa profitam de vremea buna. Si dupa 10 minute a-nceput sa ploua! Dar n-a contat, noi ne-am simtit grozav 🙂
