Book of the Month Series

h&m top christmas gifts presents book of the month

EN   So I thought I’ll give you a shout out about the new series I started to do on Youtube – The Book of the Month. I want to encourage more people to read, to learn more, to improve themsleves. So all these beautiful books that I am talking about are self-help, inspiring books. I’ll share with you the last video I did and now I’m going back to another book. Outside it’s snowing, made my hot tea already and I’m sat on the big sofa with the cat sleeping next to me – life’s good!

RO  M-am gandit sa va spun repede de noua serie pe care am inceput-o de cateva luni pe Youtube – Cartea Lunii. Videourile sunt in limba engleza pentru a fi accesibile cat mai multor personane. Insa daca aveti nevoie de mai multe detalii in limba romana, nu ezitati sa imi lasati un comentariu, iar eu va contactez cu cel mai mare drag!

Am ales sa fac aceste videouri pentru a incuraja publicul online sa citeasca mai mult, sa se axeze si pe carti de tipul dezvoltare personala, leadership, personalitate si business. Sunt o mare fana a acestor carti si cred ca cu totii avem ceva de invatat din ele. Iar acum va las cu ultimul filmulet facut, ma intorc la cartea mea. Afara ninge, am facut un ceai fierbinte si stau pe canapea uitandu-ma la geam, iar pisica doarme langa mine – mai bine de-atat nu se poate!

Buying Gloves for Winter

burgundy christmas outfit primark affordable

EN   I always thought that if we need to wear gloves, they need to complement the outfit. Today however, it all started from the accessories. I thought I really like the burgundy so it all added up. I don’t think I ever matched my gloves so well, but the idea is – why not invest in some fun gloves? They can really change an outfit – something that I just found out on my own. So here’s what I recommend when investing in new gloves: choose colours that will look good with the coats that you already have. Be practical – if you need thick ones, buys thick ones.. if you need something to wear on your way to work, maybe something thinner is enough. Don’t pay too much for them, you’ll probably loose one – or at least it always happens to me. And don’t overdo it, like I did! I went to Primark and got overwhelmed by all the cheap gloves and ended up buying too many. I might wear them once only, but hey, they were too cute I couldn’t resist. You need to be stronger though, so don’t let them fool you!

RO   Cand vine vorba de purtat manusi, mereu le-am privit ca ceva ce completeaza o tinuta. De data asta insa, am ales tinuta in functie de manusi. Mi-a placut mult ideea de rosu – visiniu asa ca am pornit cu gandul de-a ma asorta. Si veci n-am fost asa asortata cu manusile. Asa ca pe tema asta, va impartasesc cateva sfaturi cand vine vorba de achizitionat manusi: Alegeti mereu ceva ce se potriveste deja cu paltoanele sau gecicle din garderoba. Fiti practice si luati manusi in functie de necesitate, materialul e foarte important si captuseala poate face o mare diferenta. Nu investiti prea mult intr-o pereche, manusile se pierd tare usor, sau cel putin eu le pierd foarte usor… Dar nu va lasati nici prea tentate de preturile mici, ma gandesc acum la mama care mereu are o gramada acasa: ‘uite, Andra, alege-ti o pereche sau doua, tare dragute sunt si le-am luat pe toate’. Si stiti vorba aia, asa mama – asa fiica… inca am vreo 3 nepurtate, dar au fost tare dragute si le-am luat pe toate…burgundy christmas outfit primark affordable burgundy christmas outfit primark affordableburgundy christmas outfit primark affordable burgundy christmas outfit primark affordable burgundy christmas outfit primark affordable

Winter Glamour

cozy, winter, warm, feminine lookFinally a post with a new outfit! I don’t know about you, but I’ve missed them so much! And yes, I had to post something pink and feminine for a comeback. I hope you’ll enjoy it!

It’s not news that I like to combine my summer dresses with cute sweaters, when it’s cold outside. I like it because it’s always comfortable, warm and hei, I’ve got a new look! I chose to take some photos inside, to show you better what I wore. Imagine on top of this a nice and warm coat and a furry, russian look alike hat.

—————

Mi-a fost tare dor sa postez o tinuta. Asa ca sunt bucuroasa sa va arat o idee de a combina rochita de vara si un pulover in stilul meu caracteristic. Inainte de-a iesi am pus pe mine un palton si un fel de caciula din blana artificiala, de culoarea roz pal. Nu a fost prea frig si-am putut pastra ciorapii de culoarea piciorului. Dar oricum, o pereche de colanti n-ar fi aratat rau. 

Iar acum, dupa ce v-am aratat niste poze cu rochita, parul aranjat si machiajul facut, ma duc sa-mi pun pe mine hainele de casa. Incepe curatenia generala de Craciun! V-am pupat si ne reauzim curand!

DIY: tea leaves in jars

autumn colours

If you wonder what I’ve done lately, the answer is: a lot! There were some busy, but rewarding days and now I’ve finally found some time to share with you my last DIY project: Tea leaves in jars. I know, it’s not a very big discovery… but I think it looks very nice and it’s a great way to keep it, for those who love to drink tea made of leaves. I prefer to buy leaf tea as it tastes good and I get to mix it every time. However, the original packaging is often simple and not very interesting. So here’s my simple, cheap and cute way of keeping my tea on the shelves 🙂 I’m not ready yet, I still need to fill some more jars, but I wanted to show you how it looks so far.

——————-

Daca va-ntrebati ce-am facut in ultima vreme, raspunsul e: multeee si marunte! A fost o perioada mai aglomerata, dar plina de satisfactii. Iar acum ca am putin timp liber, am zis sa va arat cum mi-am aranjat frunzele de ceai. E un proiect usor, ieftin si dragut (zic eu!). Prefer sa fac ceai din frunze uscate si nu plicuri pentru ca mi se pare mai delicios si mereu combin aromele. In Romania gasiti frunze la magazinele naturiste, la farmacii, in supermarket – in multe locuri! Si de cele mai multe ori sunt intr-o cutie de carton sau o punguta de carton. In primul rand nu-mi place ambalajul, iar in al doilea rand mereu se imprastie pe langa. De-aceea am ales sa-mi aranjez ceaiul in borcane. Inca n-am terminat, dar n-am avut rabdare: a trebuit sa va arat progresul pana acum!

The hat

I remember when I was younger. I would’t wear a hat for anything in the world. I just hated how I looked with one. Now my opinion hasn’t changed too much – I still believe I’m just not a hat person. However, I do need to wear one once in a while, it’s simply too cold outside and I always want to be comfortable. And that’s why I chose to wear more of a girly hat, which was still warm and cozy, so mission accomplished!

Now I know that beanies are totally in right now. However I can’t imagine myself wearing one. I just don’t look good in those. That’s why I chose this hat. I believe that we should just search and search until we find something we like.

——————

Tin minte cand eram mica si refuzam mereu sa port caciula. Nu voiam nici in ruptul capului. Mereu aveam impresia ca nu-mi sta bine. Sincer, nu-s facuta sa port caciuli! Insa asta nu e o scuza… cand e musai, e musai! S-a facut frig tare zilele astea si-am fost nevoita sa-mi iau ceva. Asa ca am purtat o palarioara. E o varianta mai girly, insa e o varianta care merge mai bine cu stilul meu. Se poarta mult caciulile gen ‘beanie’, cu mesaje in fata sau nu neaparat, insa eu personal nu pot sa port modelul ala, nu-mi sta bine deloc. Asa ca, ce vreau sa va transmit cu mesajul asta fetelor, purtati o caciula! Cautati una care va place cat decat, care sa va scoata in evidenta tinuta si iesiti din tipar, daca e nevoie. Eu mereu cand vad ceva ce-mi place, probez sa vad cum e. Asa am ajuns sa cumpar si palarioara asta. Acum vreau sa-mi cumpar mai multe, insa presimt ca va fi mai greu. Stiti cum e – cand cauti ceva, greu gasesti! Cand n-ai bani si nu ai nevoie de nimic, gasesti cele mai frumoase lucruri!
