Photo Diary – Samsung Galaxy Alpha Camera Review

Samsung Galaxy Alhpa How was your Christmas, dear friends? I hope you had enough time to rest and really enjoy this Holiday! And I hope you got what you wished for. And don’t bother about those extra chocolate cakes you had… I know I don’t.

This Christmas I had the chance to update my phone and in the end I went for the Samsung Galaxy Alpha. I also navigated towards the Iphone 6, but I didn’t really like the design. So I played a lot with my new gadget, we even took some photos for a blog post. And in the end I decided to share with you some of my favourite photos, to give you an idea of how good the camera phone is! I was really impressed with the quality.

Dragi cititori, sper ca ati avut parte de un Craciun bine meritat. Liniste, mancare buna, familie, prieteni si poate chiar zapada? Si nu va faceti griji pentru portia dubla de sarmale.. ca doar o data-i Craciunul! (pe an). 

Si pentru ca am meritat, mi-am facut singura cadou un nou telefon de Craciun. Era cazul sa-l schimb si-am ales noul Samsung Galaxy Alpha. Am avut de ales intre ceva ce altii voiau (Iphone 6) si ceva ce eu imi doream (Samsung), asa ca am ales ce-am vrut eu si sunt foarte multumita. Cu ocazia asta am facut mai multe poze si ma gandeam ca ar fi interesant sa impartasesc cateva cu voi. Am ramas placut surprinsa de calitatea camerei din telefon asa ca am ales cateva dintre pozele mele preferate din vacanta de Craciun.

Gifts for Him

It’s that time of the year when I need to be creative. And believe me, after 5 years it is hard to come up with a good gift for Dan! But of course, I always do. I love to shop, I love to give presents and yes, I don’t mind spending time online or in stores finding something nice. I always taught that buying a gift for a guy is more difficult than buying a gift for a girl. We like anything.. we have 10 perfumes? One extra does not matter, as long as it’s different. And this applies to almost anything. But I feel that with guys you need to be a bit more creative and I always try and offer Dan something he doesn’t have already. And because I know it’s not an easy job, I came up with a small gift guide. My purpose was to show you a variety of possibilities and not necessarily these specific products. However, if you want to see exactly what’s on each collage, simply click on the link below it. It will take you to my Polyvore collage, with all the brands and prices. I wish you happy shopping and see write to you soon!

———————-

In 5 ani de zile am cumparat multe cadouri pentru Dan. Si da, uneori poate fi tot mai dificil sa gasesc ceva original. Insa pentru ca-mi place enorm sa fac cadouri, sa fac cumparaturi si sa caut produse, mereu imi iese (zic eu). Am impresia ca e mai greu sa-i iei unui baiat ceva mai deosebit. Si, dupa discutii cu prietenele mele, am ajuns la concluzia ca da, multe imi impartasiti durerea! Asa ca am hotarat sa va ofer cateva idei. Colajele facute sunt cu scopul de a va inspira si nu neaparat sa mergeti sa luati produsul respectiv. Daca insa doriti sa vedeti de unde e si cat costa, puteti da un click pe linkul de sub fiecare colaj. Va va duce direct la contul meu de Polyvore unde vedeti exact brandurile si preturile. Sper ca v-am putut oferi cateva idei! Si Miha draga, postarea asta e pentru tine! Spor la shopping fetelor si sper sa va scriu curand!

Quick, easy and inexpensive Christmas decorations

As I promised, here are the things I did in order to have a more Christmasy home. I didn’t want to spend much money on decorations so I tried to use things I had around the house and bought the minimum that was necessary. The biggest investment was the Christmas tree, which is potted and I hope to donate it after the Christmas period. You’ll see many presents underneath the tree. This is because Dan and I are making small gifts until the 24th. It’s based on the advent calendar, but we made each present ourselves and they are usually food, things we need in the house – so small gifts. Because it’s just Dan and I we thought it’s a good idea to do this, to make it more fun and have more presents 🙂 The only thing I couldn’t show you in pictures is the white lights I hanged around the windows, for a more romantic ambiance. So here it is, hope you’ll enjoy it!

——————

Dupa cum am promis, de data asta va arat micile detalii pe care le-am aranjat pentru a decora de Craciun. Am incercat sa cheltui cat mai putin, cea mai mare investitie fiind bradul de Craciun pe care vreau sa-l dau inapoi dupa (fiind in ghiveci). Dupa ideea calendarului advent, am hotarat sa facem mici cadouri pentru fiecare zi din 1 Decembrie pana pe 24. Astfel, avem mai multe cadouri sub brad, fiind doar Dan si cu mine. Cadourile sunt dulciuri, lucruri de care avem nevoie prin casa, nimic prea costisitor. E doar ideea si entuziasmul de-a deschide un cadou in fiecare zi. Mai jos va arat ideile mele, sper sa va placa! Pe langa astea, am impodobit geamurile cu lumini albe. Sper ca ideile mele v-au inspirat 🙂

Preparing for Christmas

I love Christmas.Yes, I love to cook, I love to decorate my house and I love to buy gifts (a lot!). Ok, ok.. I love to receive gifts as well! 
Seriously now, I see so many stressed people around me.. (especially in the traffic!) why is that? I mean, I know it can be overwhelming.. lots of stuff to do, but why not enjoy this Holiday to the fullest? After all, it’s about family, friends, good food and presents – what’s not to like? 🙂  
And speaking of family, I went to my grandma this weekend. I helped her bake and do the Christmas tree. And now, preparations for our home begin – can’t wait!
Ador Craciunul. Imi place sa gatesc, imi palce sa decorez casa si-mi place sa cumpar cadouri (foarte mult chiar). Si da, imi place sa si primesc cadouri! 
Si vad in jurul meu foarte multi oameni stresati.. (in special in trafic!) si nu-nteleg de ce.. Desigur, poate deveni obositor cu-atata munca.. dar de ce sa nu incercam sa facem totul cu placere? Pana la urma, sarbatoarea asta inseamna familie, prieteni, mancare buna si cadouri – si toate suna foarte bine! 🙂  
Am vizitat-o pe bunica weekendul asta. Am ajutat-o putintel la gatit si la facut bradul.
Iar acum incepem la noi acasa – de-abia astept!
I found these Christmas decorations that my grandma received from her mum. They are around 60 years old now.. and they’re amazing! 🙂
Am gasit globurile astea, pe care bunica le-a primit de la mama ei. Au in jur de 60 de ani vechime… si sunt minunate! 🙂

Red dress for Christmas

lamoda.tumblr.com
For this Christmas I’d love to wear a red dress. A simple, elegant one and accessorized with big, golden jewelry. Unfortunately, I haven’t bought one yet.. because of the usual reasons: wrong size, wrong price, or wrong model… I bought a cream-golden Christmas dress, though (I couldn’t help it!)… but I still hope I’ll find a red one this week. If not, next year, then! 
What are you going to wear this Christmas? 🙂 

Pentru Craciunul asta am o fixatie: rochie rosie. Simpla, eleganta, accesorizata cu bijuterii mari, aurii. Din pacate n-am gasit una potrivita pana acum.. din motive obisnuite: marimi prea mari/mici, pret ridicat, sau pur si simplu un model nepotrivit.. Mi-am luat o rochie crem-aurie, totusi (nu m-am putut abtine!)..Dar inca mai sper ca poate-poate gasesc una rosie saptamana ce vine. Daca nu, poate la anul!
Voi ce purtati de Craciun? 🙂

Christmas Party in Manchester

Before everyone was going home for Christmas, my friends and I decided to do a Christmas Party. We chose the 6th of December because many cultures celebrate the St.Nicolas then, do you celebrate it too? The evening was just great! Mulled Cider (first time I tried it – delicious!), Cakes, Muffins, Presents, Laughter, Friends! 

In case you wonder, I got a Christmas hat and a big brown bag! And I baked those Coconut Macaroons, from my previous post

Inainte de-a incepe vacanta de iarna, am hotarat impreuna cu prietenele mele sa facem o petrecere de Craciun. Si-am ales sa sarbatorim pe data de 6 Decembrie, da.. de Sfantul Nicolae! Seara a fost foarte reusita! Am baut cidru fiert pentru prima data – delicios! si desigur, prajituri si toate cele. Cadourile au fost faine toate, am ras bine si m-am simtit extraordinar!

Eu am primit o caciula de Mos si o geanta maro. Ah, si am facut Coconut Macaroons, reteta pe care-am postat-o ultima data aici
