Rock chic

street style manchester

A new week means a new post! Now, I’m going to be short today. I keep on writing something and then erasing it again and seems my inspiration is nowhere to be found. I started this article yesterday and since then it’s the same: me, staring at the laptop..and constantly changing my mind. At the moment I’m reading an inspirational book by John C. Maxwell and he says: even if you don’t feel inspired, just start doing it. Don’t let that stop you. So here I am, writing about how I can’t write 🙂 But I hope you get the point – Just do it! (Nike says it as well). This is one of my new year’s resolutions – to be more action oriented. What do you want to accomplish this year? Anything you’d like to share with me?


O noua saptamana, o noua postare! Titlul de ‘Rock chic’ vine de la expresia lui Dan cand m-a vazut si m-am gandit – da…se potriveste 🙂 Scriam mai sus (in versiunea engleza) ca de ieri ma chinui sa scriu acest articol. Nu am putut sa-mi gasesc inspiratia nicicum… Dar citesc in momentul de fata o carte scrisa de John C. Maxwell care spune sa te apuci de lucru. Chiar daca n-ai inspiratie in momentul respectiv. Sa incepi oricum. Si-asa am inceput sa scriu.. despre cum nu pot sa scriu (if that makes sense). Dar ideea e sa impart sfatul lui, care mie mi se pare foarte bun. E un sfat care s-a transformat demult in sloganul Nike – Just do it! Asta e una din rezolutiile mele pentru anul nou. Voi ce vreti sa realizati in noul an?

Porto – part 2

MagnoliaPorto is a very colourful city. It wasn’t very crowded when we went, but I believe people prefer to go there in the summer. You can enjoy a lot of things this city offers, as prices are not high at all. So you’ll be able to visit places, eat out and shop with a reasonable budget.

Porto e-un oras foarte colorat. Nu prea aglomerat cand am fost noi, dar cred ca lumea prefera sa-l viziteze vara. Puteti sa va rasfatati cu tot ce va ofera orasul, preturile sunt accesibile. Cu un buget rezonabil puteti sa vizitati diverse lucruri, sa luati masa in oras, sa faceti umpic de shopping.

Yes, there’s a lot of seagulls, too many I think! They didn’t bother me, but on a long term basis.. uff, that’s a lot to handle! On the bright sight, they enrich the beauty of the landscape.

Multi multi pescarusi! Se-mbina frumos cu peisajul..dar pe termen lung… brr, prea multi!

Because of the nice weather, you can already have dinner outside, along the water.

E-o vreme asa placuta pentru cina si plimbari afara, langa apa…

The traditional Porto wine is very sweet, aromatic, with a soft taste. I recommend it!

Vinul de Porto e dulce, foarte aromat, cu un gust fin. Il recomand cu drag!

Francesinha is something you’ll find in Porto only. It’s like a sandwich (with different types of meat, sausages and salami in it), surrounded by fries. They say the secret of the delicious taste stays in the sauce. I really enjoyed this food, but I would have preferred less sauce!

Francesinha e o mancare specifica orasului Porto. E un fel de sandwich (cu o gramada de carne, salam, carnat in el), inconjurat de cartofi prajiti. Localnicii spun ca secretul e sosul. Mi-a placut mancarea, insa as fi preferat mai putin sos, ca sa vezi!

The shopping is not that interesting, I may say. They have small boutiques and a big shop, like Selfridges or Harvey Nichols. I see Porto as a place to relax, to walk, enjoy the beauty of the nature, but not to shop. Which is good, more budget for that wine and francesinha, yum!

Partea de shopping nu e asa interesanta. Sunt multe magazine mici, si-un centru cu marci mai scumpe (Hugo Boss, CK, DKNY etc). Dar orasul mi se pare perfect pentru plimbari, relaxare, nu pentru shoping. Ceea ce-i perfect, mai mult buget pentru vin si  francesinha, yum!

Porto – part 1

For those who don’t know from my Facebook Page, I spent the last days in the beautiful Porto. Although it was a short visit, I really enjoyed the city… it’s so so beautiful, original, romantic, people are friendly and the food is great. Usually, the weather is great as well, but no, of course I didn’t have this luck! So yes, we experienced some rain, and yes, you’ll see some pictures with some round shapes on them – that’s rain drops… but it was a lovely trip and I would like to go back one day, to visit more – not only Porto, but also other places in Portugal.

Pentru cei care nu au aflat inca (de pe Pagina mea de Facebook), am petrecut ultimele zle in frumosul oras Porto. Desi a fost o vizita scurta, am apucat sa vizitez una alta, sa imi fac o idee si sa raman cu o impresie extrem de placuta.. e un oras frumos, original, romantic, oameni prietenosi si mancare delicioasa. De obicei, vremea e minunata, numai ca, normal ca n-am avut norocul asta! Asa ca, da, a plouat putintel, ne-am cam da, veti vedea cateva poze cu mici pete rotunde pe ele – picaturi de ploaie… dar per total a fost o excursie reusita si mi-ar placea sa ma intorc intr-o zi (cu soare) doar in Porto, ci si in alte locuri din Portugalia.

I really liked that buildings are so colourfull. An interesting and surprising fact was to notice all those buildings in a very poor condition, next to the restructured ones.

Mi-a placut multitudinea de culori. Dar foarte interesant si surprinzator a fost sa vad numeroase cladiri intr-o stare foarte nasoala, langa cladiri frumoase, restaurate.
