Inspired by Nature

christmas cocktail dinnerEN   I found this maxi dress at a zara sale and totally loved it. I like how the details go up from the bottom and I like how long the dress is. And if there’s nature printed on the bottom of it, I thought why not take some photos in the middle of the nature. I also see myself wearing this dress at a nice cocktail evening, now that we are all busy with Christmas work dos and events. It’s elegant and it has more than enough room to eat all the extra delicious cake for the month of December. How about you ladies, any dresses for the Christmas dinners yet ?

RO   Ce ma surprinde e ca am facut pozele din postarea de azi acu’ cateva zile. Anglia nu arata deloc a iarna, dimpotriva, zici ca e primavara dupa culori, toamna dupa vreme… Eu cel putin inca sper la un Craciun alb…Insa am zis ca peisajul asta merge totusi la fix cu rochia noua de la zara – printul de jos tocmai imita crengi de copaci si culori de natura. E o rochie pe care o s-o port cu drag la unele din evenimentele de Craciun pe care urmeaza sa le am. Imi place tare luna Decembrie – e luna in care companiile organizeaza petreceri de Craciun, luna in care ne revedem cu totii, ne relaxam cu totii si, cel mai important, avem destule ocazii sa ne imbracam mai elegant. Voi cum stati cu tinutele, ceva in minte deja?christmas cocktail dinner christmas cocktail dinner christmas cocktail dinner

Sunday’s Brunch

autumn first outfit EN   The autumn is here… it’s time we stat burning some candles, it’s time for those late movie nights, it’s time for hot coffees and teas, it’s time for the pumpkin cake and cozy jumpers. And one trend for this autumn that I totally love is the turtle neck. Finally this is on trend, finally I can find turtle neck jumpers in any colour and shape. Until now I used to struggle to find them, now I will have to struggle not to buy every one of them.

Now let’s go back to what really matters: those sweet rituals that all of us like to have. One of my favourite is the Sunday morning, when Dan and I usually get up and go out for breakfast. We usually indulge ourselves in huge mugs of lattes and great portions of pancakes. This is the time when we catch up, when we talk about us and make some great plans. It’s that type of conversation that only your best friend would understand, that can go on for hours and that fills you up with emotion and enthusiasm. It’s the perfect way of re-energising yourself after a busy weekend.

RO    E aprope mijlocul lunii Septembrie, se aproapie incet toamna iar eu sunt tare entuziasmata. E vremea in care ne scoatem puloverele din dulap, aprindem lumanari parfumate prin casa, ne uitam seara la filme in timp ce afara ploua, se apropie un anotimp romantic si eu de-abia astept. 

Asta ma duce cu gandul la ritualurile noastre, care desi sunt mici, ne sunt tare dragi. Un ritual preferat de-al meu e atunci cand Dan si cu mine luam micul dejun duminica in oras. Avem un local favorit unde de obicei comandam o cana mare de cafea cu lapte, clatite si alte bunataturi. Gurmanzi de felul nostru, savuram fiecare bucatica in timp ce povestim vrute si nevrute – e starea aia in care esti cu cel mai bun prieten si te pierzi in povesti si planuri, in care te re-energizezi vorbind despre visele tale, despre ce vrei sa faci pe viitor, despre voi.

Bright colours for rainy days

zara converse EN   Even though it’s still freezing sometimes, I refuse to wear my big coat anymore. I mean, come on, it’s almost summer! I am getting way too excited about wearing dresses and shorts. Especially when we’re bombarded with loads of fun and summery clothes in the shops and in the magazines. So to make it a bit more fun, I chose to wear my new zara coat – a very trendy coat that doesn’t keep you warm at all. But I like it. And it’s also kind of rain proof which in the UK is a must. The weather has been horrible lately. Rain and dark clouds, cold winds… and a lot of grey. So I got really excited to find this wall that shows a totally opposite image and I thought why not – at least express what’s in my mind and not what’s outside.

RO    Desi e inca destul de frig, refuz categoric sa port paltonul. Totusi… e aproape luna Iunie si eu inca trebuie sa ma imbrac ca in luna Februarie – ceva nu pusca! Si citim revistele de moda, mergem prin magazine, peste tot online vedem doar haine de vara, colectii noi, rochii si pantaloni scurti..insa hai sa fim seriosi, nu putem forta vara nici prea tare. Ca sa ma consolez mi-am luat o geaca din colectia de vara (tot geaca, dar macar e din colectia vara) de la zara. O geaca tare draguta care nu tine cald deloc. Da’ deloc. Dar macar ii faina si ma protejeaza de ploaie, ceva esential in Anglia. Mai nou zilele au fost reci, innorate si prea ploioase. Am iesit afara si o atmosfera apasatoare, ca-n poezia lui Bacovia – Plumb. Si in tot peisajul asta gri am dat de-un perete roooz si coloraaat – tocmai ce-mi lipsea!

Hello, Spring!

spring outfit michael kors clutch ara shoes office lookEN     I love spring. It used to be my favourite season. But I’ve decided I don’t have a favourite season anymore, because each of them has its own beauty. But winter might be the last on my list… or at least this winter. It was way too long, and way too rainy. So to express my excitement towards the warmer season (hopefully), I chose to wear a really bright outfit. Yes, it is too bold for the weather, it’s still cold outside. But I couldn’t help it. So I hope it gives you some inspiration for the (many) upcoming sunny days!

RO    Ador primavara. Era intr-o vreme anotimpul meu preferat dar am hotarat ca nu mai am unul. Gata. Am impresia ca fiecare anotimp are farmecul lui. Si totusi iarna poate se afla pe ultimul loc. Sau cel putin iarna asta care (in sfarsit) a trecut. A fost mult prea rece, prea ploioasa, prea lunga. Asa ca, (prea) entuziasmata am hotarat sa ma imbrac in ceva cat mai fresh de 1 Martie. Ma duce cu gandul la florile de cires, la campiile lungi si dese de la bunica. Nu stiu voi, dar eu tare-am asteptat primavara! Asa ca sper sa va placa si sa va inspire tinuta de azi.

When you least expect it

flowersI grabbed the first chance I had to go shopping. I had to treat myself for my birthday so I wanted something pretty and special. I wondered around all the city looking for that something. I tried on tons of clothes and nothing suited me. I was beginning to feel that maybe I had too much cake for my birthday and I was starting to regret it. It was all too boring until I got to Zara. I was literally like a child at Christmas. I wanted to go and grab as many things as possible. I love their pastels, I love their textures. All in all, their new collection is gorgeous. But something stopped me and brought me back to reality: my wallet. I admit that Zara’s collection stands out, however the prices too. Therefore I had to leave the shop with nothing in my shopping bag. And the hunt for the perfect piece went on. However, after seeing what I saw at Zara, nothing seemed good enough. So I decided to come back home, upset that I’ve spent all that time and didn’t find anything. I threw my coat on the coach and turned on my laptop. While I was enjoying some Seth Godin talks on youtube, someone was knocking at my door. To my surprise, there was the delivery guy with my PersunMall order. It was too good to be true! I have forgotten about this and it was definitely the perfect timing! So here is one of the things I ordered: a rose printed sweater.

——————–

Cu prima ocazie am dat fuga prin magazine sa-mi iau ceva dragut de ziua mea. Cautam ceva special, dar nimic specific. Am intrat in diverse magazine, strategic gandite in functie de noile colectii. Am dat fuga si la H&M unde aveam un cupon 25% reducere si voiam sa profit de el. Insa tentativa mea de-a gasi ceva a fost in zadar. Nimic nu mi-a placut sau nu mi-a venit bine. Deja incepeam sa regret tortul mancat in exces la ziua mea. Era grav si incepeam sa-mi pierd rabdarea. Asta pana ce am ajuns la Zara. Parca eram in lumea mea: culori pastelate, texturi deosebite, atentie la detalii..o colectie reusita! Si totusi nu mi-am cumparat nimic. De ce? Bugetul! Recunosc, Zara iese din tipar cu noile colectii. Insa si preturile sunt pe masura de-aceea am iesit frumusel din magazin, cu coada-ntre picioare. Iar apoi toate magazinele pe care le-am vazut nu mi-au mai placut. Nimic nu se compara cu ce vazusem la Zara. Am ajuns acasa suparata ca am peirdut atata timp de pomana si-am inceput sa ma uit la Seth Godin pe youtube (daca va place marketingul, vi-l recomand). Si dintr-o data cineva bate la usa. Era postasul cu un pachetel doar pentru mine! Si ce sa vezi? Comanda de la PersunMall de care uitasem demult. Un moment mai potrivit nici ca se putea! Asa ca ma bucur ca am ceva special de ziua mea: puloverul printat.
