DRAGOBETE ūüá∑ūüáī

RO: Sarbatoare mare si frumoasa astazi, la noi in Romania, am folosit termenii ‘mare‘ si ‘frumoasa‘ raportati la¬†amploarea comerciala pe care a primit-o in ultimii ani.

Dupa ce am zis pe 14 Februarie, ca nu am sarbatorit in nici un fel Valentine’s Day, astazi, de Dragobete am pregatit un look etno-chic!

Am ales sa port o ie (mostenire de familie) cu pantaloni si bocanci negri din piele, iar pe post de brau am atasat o borseta pentru a aduce outfit-ul mai mult in zona de street style decat in zona de costum.

A se observa inima neagra prinsa pe¬†piept…¬†ūüėÖ

Ah! Si multe multumiri lui Razvan Popa (fotograf).

EN:¬†Big and beautiful feast today, here in Romania, I used the terms ‘big‘ and ‘beautiful‘ vis-a-vis the commercial scale that has received in recent years.

After what I said on 14th¬†February, I have not celebrated Valentine’s Day, but for today I prepared an¬†ethno-chic look!

I chose to wear a IE (Romanian traditional shirt) with black leather pants and boots, and instead of the traditional belt I chose a fanny pack to put the outfit more into the street style zone than the costume zone.

Notice the black heart¬†pinned¬†on my¬†chest … ūüėÖ

Ah! And many thanks to Razvan Popa (photographer).

#BackToHighSchoolChallenge

Aici si acum, primul challenge la care particip pe social media… Starnit de mine (inspirat putin de la vlogger-ii de dincolo). Nu stiu cati dintre voi stiti… Insa eu sunt un om destul de nostalgic din fire; Drept urmare si challenge-ul propus de mine este pe masura.

M-am gandit ca mi-ar placea sa vad cat mai multi oameni, dintre cei care au absolvit¬†liceul, revenind la look-ul din adolescenta, macar pentru o poza…

A fost o experienta destul de antrenanta si nostalgica; Fara a va mai incarca cu multe cuvinte¬†(pentru ca prefer sa ma exprim vizual) va las mai jos VLOG-ul in care am incercat sa va arat¬†pas cu pas ‘procesul‘ meu de calatorie in timp si totodata cadrele realizate in sala de clasa in care am studiat in primul an de liceu, imbracat cu¬†hainele de atunci, avand si¬†freza de atunci… Hehe!

P.S. – Am predat stafeta mai departe urmatorilor: Bianca Adam (Tequila), Cucu (Noaptea Tarziu), Ana-Maria Gheorghe (Moda pe Bune?), Alina Ceusan si Maria Dragason (Special Koko); Abia astept sa va vad transformarile si nominalizarile!

Iubesc… by Marta Popescu

RO: In caz ca nu stiti, IUBESC… este proiectul Martei Popescu (fotograf) in care oamenii sunt invitati sa arate pe o bucata de hartie, in fata camerei foto, ce/cum/cat iubesc.

Anul acesta am ales sa spun ca iubesc o categorie de vin, si anume Pinot Grigio; De ce? Asta mi-a venit. Nu sunt alcoolic¬†, nici insensibil… Insa iubesc mult prea multe lucruri, multi oameni si in mult prea multe feluri pentru a putea rezuma totul intr-un singur cuvint.

Doresc sa o felicit pe Marta pentru ca a reusit sa realizeze acest eveniment anual inca din 2012… Sper sa ne revedem multi ani de acum incolo aratand in continuare pe foi ce si cum iubim. #LoveWins

marta001

EN: If you don’t know, IUBESC… (I LOVE…) is Marta Popescu‘s (photographer) project where people are invited to show on a piece of paper, in front of the photo camera, what/how they love.

This year I chose to say that I love a certain wine category, Pinot Grigio; Why? Randomly. No, I am not alcoholic¬†, nor insensitive… But I love a lot of things, many people and in too many ways to can resume everything in one single word.

I want to¬†congratulate Marta for making this event yearly even¬†since 2012… I hope to see you years from now still showing on pieces of paper what and how we love. #LoveWins

#OOTD in Vienna

RO: O singura zi insorita am prins cat timp am vizitat Viena… Motiv pentru care acesta e singurul outfit pe care l-am plimbat pe strazile Vieneze demn de a il prezenta si pe blog.

Pe scurt, un outfit lejer, realizat rapid prin suprapunerea mai multor straturi de diverse texturi; Avand o accesorizare simpla si de efect.

Am ales sa predomine monocromia pentru ‘a iesit in evidenta‘ pe (mult prea) coloratele strazi ale Vienei. In general cand imi gandesc o tinuta o raportez si la cromatica peisajului in care merg.

img_0807

EN: There was just one sunny day while I was visiting Wien… Reason why this is the only one outfit I wore on the Viennese streets worthy to present on blog.

Shortly, a casual outfit, quickly realized by superimposing several layers of different textures; With a simple and effective accessory.

I chosed¬†monochromy to prevail for ‘standing out‘ on the (too much) colored streets of Wien. Generally when I create an outfit I report it to¬†the background chromatic of the place I visit.

Madame Tussauds, Vienna

RO: A doua oara cand vizitez un muzeu Madame Tussauds… Evident ca nu m-am putut abtine de la ipostazele teatrale (prostesti) alaturi de statuile de ceara a catorva¬†dintre personalitatile mele preferate!

Recomand tuturor vizita unui astfel de muzeu, pe langa faptul ca e destul de amuzant sa vezi diverse personalitati (din toate timpurile, in functie de muzeu) realizate in scara 1:1 intr-o maniera cat mai realista posibil, cat si pentru a observa in detaliu rabdarea si munca artistilor care realizeaza astfel de statui.

Fara alte cuvinte, va las mai jos cateva cadre din vizita mea, sper sa va amuze

b087688800ba085597b00a1b6fa26c468b9b3374

EN: My second¬†visit at a Madame Tussauds museum… Obviously, I could not abstain myself from my theatrical (foolish) poses near the wax statues of a few of my favorite personalities!

I recommend you all to visit one of these museums, beside the fact that it is pretty entertaining to see various personalities (from all the times) made 1:1 in a manner as realistic as possible, it is also amazing to observe in details the patience and work of the artists who created these statues.

Without more talking, I leave you here a few photos from my visit, hope to amuse you

1 Decembrie la Viena

Daca anul trecut data de¬†1 Decembrie m-a prins la parada, pe Kiseleff (Bucuresti), anul acesta m-a prins in Viena. Prima data la Viena, prima zi… Cam asta s-a intamplat!

Nu am de gand sa imi fac inca nici o impresie vis-a-vis de oras, momentan sunt pe fuga dintr-o parte in alta a orasului (thank God for Uber) pentru a vizita cat mai mult.

Las fotografiile, respectiv vlog-ul (hehe!) sa ‘vorbeasca’…

P.S. – La multi ani, Romania!

Slytherin

RO: In primul rand sunt mare fan Harry Potter, de la varsta de 8 ani; In al 2-lea rand abia ce am vizionat noul film din celebra serie HP, Fantastic Beasts, care a trezit o mare emotie copilareasca in mine; Si in al 3-lea rand, cunoscutul site Pottermore.com m-a sortat in casa Slytherin dupa ce am completat  quiz-ul cu pricina.

Toate aceste 3 puncte de vedere de mai sus au rezultat cadrele de mai jos realizate in incinta minunatului castel al Huniazilor (aproape de orasul meu natal, haha!). Am dorit sa redau ceva magic, autentic si actual… Sper sa va incante vizual!

slytherin_crest_painting

EN: First of all I am a big Harry Potter fan, since I was 8 years old; Secondly I’ve just watched the new film from the famous HP series, Fantastic Beasts, which lighted up in me a huge childhood emotion; And thirdly, the well known site Pottermore.com sorted me in the Slytherin‘s house after I completed their quiz.

All these 3 points of view from above resulted the photos down below shooted near by the beautiful Corvin Castle (pretty close to my hometown, haha!). I wanted to create something magic, authentic & fresh… Hope to delight you visually!

X-Men Inspired

RO: De cand aveam 6-7 ani am fost marcat (pozitiv) de catre celebrele personaje X-Men, toata copilaria mea, pe langa scrisoarea de la Hogwarts, am asteptat sa imi primesc super puterile… Insa super puterile pe care le-am primit ulterior s-au transformat in bun simt si simt estetic, hehe!

Galbenul nu e tocmai o culoare care sa ma reprezinte insa vazand acest pardesiu pe manechin am reusit sa vizualizez intreg outfit-ul de super erou; Nu am stat deloc pe ganduri, l-am cumparat, am construit outfit-ul si am iesit la pozat!

EN: Even since I was 6-7 years old I’ve been (positive) marked by the well known X-Men characters, my entire childhood, beside the Hogwarts’ letter, I’ve been waiting to get my super powers… But the super powers I lately got transformed into¬†kindness and aesthetic sense, hehe!

Yellow is not actually a color that represents me, but seeing this topcoat on the mannequin I was able to visualize the entire superhero outfit; I didn’t waste any time, I bought it, I composed the outfit and I shooted it!

(MY) Winter Skincare Routine

RO: Iarna e aici, si odata cu temperaturile scazute incep si problemele aspectului nearmonios pentru persoanele cu tenul sensibil (printre care si eu); Motiv pentru care doresc sa dedic acest articol rutinei mele zilnice de curatare, ingrijire si hidratare a pielii (afectata de frig).

EN: Winter is here, and once with the low temperatures the skin’s problems for persons with sensitive skin (including me) are present too; Reason why I wanted to dedicate this article to my daily routine of cleansing, caring & moisturizing my skin (affected by cold weather).

006skin-care1

Curatarea, tonifierea si hidratarea tenului. // Face’s cleansing, toning & moisturizing.

RO: Folosesc acest trio (curatare, tonifiere si hidratare) in fiecare dimineata si seara de foarte multi ani de zile; De ce? Toata adolescenta mea am avut probleme cu acneea, iar dupa lungi tratamente situatia a reusit sa ramana sub control, fara cicatrici. Am incercat foarte multe produse de la diverse branduri, momentan Nivea se muleaza destul de bine nevoilor tenului meu.

EN: I use this trio (cleansing, toning & moisturizing) daily, every morning and every evening for years; Why? My whole teenage years¬†I had big skin problems with acne, and after long treatments the situation finally remained under control, without scars. I tried a lot of products from various brands, and right now Nivea fits pretty good my skin’s needs.

006skin-care2

RO: Evident ca ma confrunt cu multe ore de somn in minus; Si tot de multe ori mi se cere afisarea unui chip odihnit si luminat… Motiv pentru care gelul anti cearcane e si el prezent rutinei mele (in general dimineata).

EN:¬†Obviously, I deal with many hours of not enough sleep; And also many times I have to show a rested and fresh face… Reason why the anti dark circles gel is also present in my routine (generally in the morning).

006skin-care3

RO: Balsamul de buze l-am ‘descoperit‘ acum 2 ani, mereu l-am considerat un moft… Desi in fiecare Iarna ma plangeam de cat de crapate imi sunt buzele (de multe ori pana la sange); L-am incercat, mi-a placut, iar acum face si el parte din peisaj.

EN: I ‘discovered‘ the lip balm 2 years ago, I always considered it a caprice… Even if every Winter I was complaining about the bad condition of my lips (often bloody); I tried it, I liked it and now it’s part¬†of routine too.

006skin-care4

RO: Nu folosesc foarte des crema de maini, in general folosesc manusi Iarna… Insa mi se intampla sa se usuce foarte tare pielea de la frig; Am descoperit anul trecut crema aceasta de maini de la Apivita (un brand drag mie deoarece¬†majoritatea produselor lor sunt 98-100% naturale), si de atunci a fost constant prezenta¬†in sezonul rece.

EN: I don’t use hand care cream often, I generally wear gloves during Winter… But it happens to get extra dry hands because of the cold; I discovered this product last year, from Apivita (a brand close to my heart because most of their products are 98-100% natural), since then it was constantly present during the cold season.

006skin-care5

RO: L-am testat, mi-a placut, a ramas. Deodorantul cristal, compus din minerale de sare, desi este inodor (nu are miros) blocheaza total posibilele mirosuri neplacute degajate de catre corp. Eu il folosesc si pe post de aftershave, pelicula de minerale de sare care ramane deasupra pielii dezinfecteaza si reduce iritarea pielii.

EN: I tested it, I liked it, it remained. Crystal deodorant, composed from mineral salt, even if it’s odorless it totally blocks the possible bad smells released by the body. I also use it as an aftershave, the mineral pellicle which remains on the skin disinfects and reduce skin’s¬†irritation.

P.S. – In acest articol am prezentat produsele care imi fac mie bine (alese dupa multe incercari), nu fac reclama.

P.S. – In this article I presented the products that fits my skin type (chosen after many tries), it’s not advertising.¬†
