[RO]                                                                                                                                        [EN]

Ne facem bugetul, rasfoim cataloagele cu noile colectii, mergem in magazinele de profil si cumparam! Cumparam, cumparam, cumparam! Insa, pe langa hainele fancy si machiajul impecabil, sunt necesare cateva tips&tricks care te vor ajuta sa ai un aspect la superlativ.

#1. O OGLINDA MARE (in care sa te vezi intreaga)

Ati fi surprinse cate persoane nu au o oglinda mare in casa! Indiferent de designul ales in propriul camin, este absolut necesar sa aveti o oglindă de minim 1.50 m inaltime. Poate fi lipita de usa dulapului, poate fi sprijinita de un perete, poate fi incastrata in perete. Ideea e sa iti vezi intreaga silueta in ea si sa poti lua cel putin 1 metru distanta, pentru o perspectiva corecta a proportiilor tale si a tinutei, inclusiv incaltamintea. Eu nu am acasa o oglinda de genul acesta, insa, spre sfarsitul anului, cand voi reconfigura apartamentul, este in capul listei.

#2. UN FIER DE CALCAT CU ABURI

Cu totii stim ca hainele sifonate nu arata bine si sunt inacceptabile pentru o tinuta cu adevarat armonioasa. Investiti intr-un fier de calcat clasic sau cu aburi pe verticala pentru a obtine efectul dorit. (via Altex, via Flanco, via emag)

#3. UN ROLLER PENTRU SCAME

De cate ori porti culori inchise, curata hainele cu un roller special inainte de a iesi din casa. Daca ai omis acest aspect, foloseste rola din poseta (in cazul in care ai una la purtator – via H&M). Cei cu animale de companie vor intelege acest aspect mai bine ca oricine!

#4. UN KIT

Se intampla sa avem mici accidente pe parcursul unei zile, de exemplu se desprinde nasturele de la sacou, se desira atele din puloverul preferat, se descoase tivul fustei, se intinde un fir de la ciorap s.a. Cand spun kit, trec in revista o mini-trusa cu 2 ace de cusut, 2 ace de siguranta, 1-2 mosoare de ata, o forfecuta, un SuperGlue, o oja transparenta si un pachet de servetele umede. Acest kit este optional, insa aceste mici accidente pot fi remediate pe loc daca ai la indemana instrumentele potrivite.

#5. CREMA DE MAINI

O piele bine hidratata (brate, maini, gat, decolteu, picioare) devine genul de detaliu care iti modifica aspectul incontestabil. Nu e nevoie sa ai in geanta un recipient de 250 ml, poti cumpara variante de tip “mostra” sau recipiente de maxim 100 ml. Vei fi recunoscatoare peste ani ca ai ingrijit acest aspect din timp.

#6. SURSE DE INSPIRATIE

Nimeni nu mai poate apela la scuza lipsei de inspiratie stilistica! Reviste de moda, site-uri inspirationale, bloguri de moda – toate te ajuta sa identifici stilul care ti se potriveste. Acestea sunt “responsive” pe orice tip de gadget, insa poti opta si pentru revistele de la chioscurile de ziare. In varianta online, ai libertatea sa salvezi si sa selectezi imaginile care-ti plac chiar pe telefon, laptop sau tableta – Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, Catwalk 15, Bloglovin s.a. Eu optez si pentru online si pentru offline. Ador sa rasfoiesc o revista de moda cand merg la picnic, sau intr-o dupa amiaza de sambata, cu o cafea buna la purtator.

#7. PUDRA DE FATA + UN GLOSS DE BUZE

Tenul arata impecabil dimineata, imediat dupa ce te-ai ridicat de la masuta de machiaj. Din pacate, nu va arata asa decat jumatate de zi. Vei retusa imediat machiajul de peste zi daca ai la indemana pudra compacta si un lipgloss. Daca vrei sa fii “mai cu mot”, poarta la tine si o mostra din parfumul preferat.

Tu ce completari ai la aceasta lista?

We do our budgets, we browse through the latest collections of all the designers, we shop everything that we can think of! Shopping, shopping, shopping! But, putting aside the fancy clothes and the impecable make-up, there are some tips&tricks that will help you to look at your best.

#1. A BIG MIRROR (where you can see yourself entirely)

You would be surprised to know that lots of people don’t even have a big mirror! No matter the design, it’s mandatory to have a 1.5 m mirror. It can be a fix one (behind the dressing), it can be fixed on the wall. Either way you have to see yourself at full size, so that you can evaluate the whole figure, the clothing and the shoes. I don’t have one at home, but, when I set up the apartment, at the end of the year, the mirror is the first one to take care of.

#2. AN IRON STEAMER

We all know that wrinkled clothes do not look good. Invest some money into a vertical iron steamer to have the perfect clothing (via Altex, via Flanco, via emag).

#3. A ROLLER LINT

Every time you wear dark color clothing, you just have to clean them up with a roller lint before going out. If you forgot to do that, just use the one you have in your purse (in case you carry it with yourself – via H&M). Those of you who have pets will definitely understand that better than anyone.

#4. A KIT

During the day, it may happen lots of accidents like: you can lose a button from your blazer, it may unravel the blouse splints, you can break your skirt or your stocking threads. When I say kit, I mean: 2 sewing needles, 2 safety pins, 1-2 spools of thread, a scissors, a glue, a transparent nail polish and a pack of wet wipes. This kit is optional, but these small accidents may be solved right then and there with the right tools.

#5. HAND CREAM

A hydrated skin (arms, hands, cleavage, legs) becomes the kind of detail that changes the whole appearance. It’s not that necessary to have the big bottle of 250 ml, you just have to buy the small ones with a max of 100 ml. Over the years, you will be grateful for that.

#6. SOURCES OF INSPIRATION

Nobody can have the excuse that they didn’t have the proper source of inspiration! Fashion magazines, inspirational websites, fashion blogs – they all help you to identify the personal style. These are “responsive” on every kind of gadget, but you can choose even the classic fashion magazine on the newsstands. Online, you can save the images you like on your phone, tablet, laptop – Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, Catwalk 15, Bloglovin s.a. . I choose the online version, but as well the offline one. I tend to read a fashion magazine on a picnic, in a Saturday afternoon, with a good coffee.

#7. FACE POWDER + A LIP GLOSS

In the morning, the skin looks flawless. Unfortunately, it won’t look like that in the afternoon. You can retouch it right then and there if you just have a translucent face powder and a lip gloss. If you want to top that up, carry with you a small dose of your favorite perfume.

PARTEA 1 o veti regasi AICI unde ati aflat deja Greseala #1, Greseala #2 & Greseala #3. Iata care sunt urmatoarele:

GRESEALA #4: Nu iti imparti parul pe suvite!

Daca alegi sa iti indrepti parul pe toata lungimea, fara a avea un plan prestabilit, nu vei face decat sa il indrepti la suprafata, nu si pe dedesubt. Astfel, vei iesi din casa si parul tau va sta drept pret de… o jumatate de ora, ca si cum nici nu l-ai aranjat! Imparte-l in suvite nici prea groase, nici prea subtiri si indreapta-le cu rabdare, insa nu da de prea multe ori cu placa pe aceeasi suvita! Mai degraba mergi incet de sus pana jos, decat sa mergi repede si sa mai revii cu placa o data, de 2 ori, de 3 ori pana simti ca e dreapta!

GRESEALA #5: Nu ai parul curat!

…Asta din motivul aplicarii repetate de produs de ingrijire sau de finisare. Imagineaza-ti doar cum placa de par se va lipi in mod bizar de suvițele tale. Brrr…un feeling cel putin ciudat!

GRESEALA #6: Ignori multiplele utilizari ale placii de par!

Placa de par este perfecta pentru indreptarea panglicilor, pentru gulerele de camasa care pur si simplu refuza sa se aseze corespunzator. Atentie doar sa nu apesi prea tare sau sa lasi sa actioneze prea mult, altfel vei strica materialul.

Placa de par pe care o folosesc eu este Babyliss Pro Fast&Furious cu incalzire instantanee, si o stabilitate a caldurii garantata. Ajunge la o temperatura de 230 grade, placile in sine avand tehnologia Sol-Gel cu pana la 40% mai durabile decat cele de ceramica. O gasiti pe www.procosmetic.ro (AICI) cu 312 lei + costuri de livrare.

You can read PART 1 HERE where you already know Mistake #1, Mistake #2 & Mistake #3. Here are the following:

TAKE #4: You rush into it!

If you choose to straighten it without having a plan, you will fix it superficially. That’s why you will go outside and your hair will be straight for… half hour, it’s like you never fix it! Split it into strands of hair not too thick, not to thin, and straighten it patiently, but do not insist many times on the same strand. You should go slowly from top to bottom, rather than fast forward and to fix the same strand of hair more than twice, just to be sure it’s straight!

MISTAKE #5: You don’t have a clean hair!

…That’s the reason for applying too much product on your hair. Just picture how the hair straightener will stick to your hair in a funny way. Brrr… what an odd feeling!

MISTAKE #6: You ignore the multiple uses of the hair straightener!

The hair straightener is perfect for stretching your ribbons and your stubborn collars from some shirts. Pay attention not to press too hard, otherwise you’ll ruin the fabric.

My hair straightener is Babyliss Pro Fast&Furious with an instant heat, and a perfect control of the temperature. It gets up to 230 degrees, and it has the Sol-Gel technology up to 40% more durable than the ceramic ones. You can find it on www.procosmetic.ro (HERE) with 312 lei + shipping costs.

CHECK IN: Pensiunea Cattaleya (ruta Bacau-Brasov KM-15 DN 11)

DATA: 09 ianuarie 2016

OCAZIA: Petrecere Botez

Hmm, frumos! Pur si simplu frumos! Am fost pentru prima data la Pensiunea Cattaleya si am ramas placut impresionata. Personal serviabil, mancare buna, companie si mai buna. Uitandu-ma pe site, am vazut ca au si un centru SPA cel putin interesant. Nimic nu e mai frumos decat o relaxare la SPA cu servicii all-inclusive: piscina incalzita la 30 de grade, sauna turceasca, jacuzzi, sedinte de masaj, cocktailuri, toate intr-o atmosfera calduroasa, eleganta si moderna. TENTANT!

Desi invitatia te imbia la… un biberon cu lapte, am baut sampanie, vin si martini si am ars caloriile acumulate pe tot parcursul serii (pentru ca s-a dansat, nu gluma).

Ziua a debutat la… salonul Floarea de Colt, unde am mers cu voucherul primit de la evenimentul din decembrie 2015, <Curs de moda si stil cu Ana Morodan> organizat de Rosesociety. Voucherul continea un machiaj realizat de Anca Higiu si o diagnoza a firului de par + tratament + fionat. Cand am ajuns acolo, parca pasisem in rai si toate serviciile erau platite! HIHI!

Totul a inceput cu diagnoza firului de par si aplicarea unui tratament marca Kerastase + un relaxaaaaaant masaj al scalpului, realizat de Nicoleta Sendrea. Ulterior, am trecut la machiaj.

Anca a fost o profesionista desavarsita si mi-a explicat cat de gresit sunt… pensata. Ce-i drept, din lipsa de timp, am facut procedura acasa, insa n-am facut-o bine. Ea a retusat situatia cu produse MAC si rezultatul final a fost un machiaj profesional impresionant care ma schimba cu totul. Toate produsele au fost waterproof, rezistente in orice imprejurare. De asemenea, Anca mi-a aplicat extensii de gene de la XTREME LASHES, niste gene individuale splendide cu efect WOW. Ulterior, am negociat impreuna cu Nicoleta cea mai potrivita aranjare a parului si aceasta a fost: un bob realizat din bucle. Am iesit papusa de acolo!

Mi-a placut mult ca amandoua au comunicat cu mine si mi-au spus pas cu pas ce se intampla, mai cu seama ce rochie voi purta pentru seara respectiva, intocmai pentru a fi in ton cu ce urmau ele sa imi faca. Multumesc mult dragele mele!

Floarea de Colt Bacau, EXTREME LASHES

Pentru acest eveniment, am ales o rochie delicata achizitionata din magazinul Mineli Boutique din Arena Mall (Bacau) anul trecut. Este o rochie usor lejera pe corp, intr-o combinatie perfecta de alb si negru. Daca te uiti atent, spui ca ai doua rochii pe tine: cea de dedesubt e alba iar cea de deasupra este neagra, incheindu-se cu un snur finut la spate. Astfel, albul iese la iveala doar la maneci si in partea din spate. Este sexy dar nu prea sexy, scurta dar nu prea scurta, numai perfecta pentru un botez. Am ales sa pun o pata de culoare in accesorii, mai exact, pantofii rosii de la Bershka achizitionati in septembrie anul trecut (chiar de ziua mea). Cerceii au fost de tip statement, negri.

CHECK IN: Cattaleya Bed&Breakfast (Bacau-Brasov route KM-15 DN 11)

DATE: 09-th January 2016

OCCASION: Christening Party

Hmm, beautiful! Simply beautiful! I was for the first time at Cattaleya and I was pleased to see the helpful staff, the good food, and the best company. Checking out their website I saw that they even have a SPA. Nothing better than a SPA with all-inclusive: heated swimming pool (30 degrees), sauna, steam turkish room, massage, cocktails, everything in a cozy, elegant and modern SPA. TEMPTING!

Although the invitation said that we will drink… a bottle of milk, we drank champaigne, wine and martini and we burnt the callories (everyone danced all night).

INVITATIE BOTEZ PENSIUNEA CATTALEYA MAGURA BACAU

The day started with… Floarea de Colt Beauty Salon, were I had the voucher from the event of Rosesociety in december 2015, <Curs de moda si stil cu Ana Morodan>. The voucher contained a professional make-up by Anca Alexandra Higiu and a diagnosis of the hair+treatment+dry out. When I got there, it was like heaven and all the services were already paid for! HIHI! Everything started with a diagnosis of the hair and applying a Kerastase hair treatment + a relaaaaxing massage of the scalp, by Nicoleta Sendrea. Afterwards, I had the make-up.  Anca was truly a professional and told me that I had the wrong… eyebrow shape. To be honest, I didn’t had the time to go to the beauty salon and I had them done at home. She managed to retouch it with MAC products and the final result was a professional make-up that changed me completely. Every product was waterproof, long-lasting in every situation. Anca applied also false eyelashes by XTREME LASHES, may I say individual and splendid ones.  After that, I negociated with Nicoleta the perfect hairstyle for the party: a curly bob. I got out of there looking like a princess! I liked them both because they told me everything step by step, and, most importantly, what the dress looked like, in order to be adjusted with the make-up and the hairstyle. Thank you both!

For this event, I chose a delicate dress from Mineli Boutique from Arena Mall (Bacau) bought last year. It’s a dress quite loose, in a perfect combination of black and white. If you look carefully you would say that you have two dresses on: the one beneath is white and the one above is black and complets the outfit with a string at the back of it. You can see the white part only at the sleeves and in the back. It’s sexy, but not too sexy, it’s short but not that short, just right for this specific party. I chose to make a statement with the accesories: the red stillettos from Bershka (bought in september 2015, on my birthday) and the earings were statement and black.

Voi ati fost vreodata la Floare de Colt?

1 1498

[RO]                                                                                                                                                       [EN]

Placa pentru indreptat parul este relativ usor de folosit si are chiar instructiuni de utilizare, insa, cine le citeste? De-a lungul timpului, fiind atenta la ritualul de pregatire ale prietenelor mele, inainte de iesi in oras, am observat ca aranjarea parului este ultimul lucru pe care il fac inainte de a iesi. Fie ca ti-l indrepti, fie ca iti faci bucle, ti-l impletesti sau ti-l prinzi in coc, vrei sa arate impecabil. Astfel, nu vei risca sa iti tragi bluza pe tine peste bucle, sa iti prinzi vreun fir in fermoar sau mai stiu eu ce. Deci, se justifica!

Dar nu se justifica omiterea pasilor premergatori acestui proces! (PARTEA 1)

GRESEALA #1: Nu aplici un produs de protectie inainte de utilizarea placii!

Ai face bine sa iti protejezi parul cand il expui la temperaturi ciudat de ridicate! Si spun asta pentru ca, uneori, exageram in reglarea temperaturii optime de utilizare (maxim temperatura 3 din 5). In magazinele de specialitate, vei gasi produse de protectie atat inainte cat si dupa utilizarea placii/ondulatorului! Singura problema ar fi sa nu uiti sa le aplici!

La indemnul unei prietene, am incercat un spray de par pentru protectie termica de la Kallos. insa m-a cam dezamagit! Nu dau vina pe produs, nu dau vina pe brand, doar ca nu suntem compatibili! Cea mai buna alegere a fost un ulei de par pe care l-am achizitionat de la Salonul de Infrumusetare Glamour (Multumesc, Gabriela Nasie!) –  Beauty Fluid (cu ulei de argan). Uleiul de argan este binecunoscutul elixir al frumusetii datorita caruia parul meu este multumit. Ba mai mult nu-l ingrasa dupa utilizare, il disciplineaza fir cu fir si miroase extraordinar.

GRESEALA #2: Selectezi temperatura cea mai mare!

Placile de par de pe piata ajung la o temperatura maxima de 250 grade. Asta nu inseamna ca trebuie sa o setezi la ultima treapta. E ca si cum ti-ai bate joc de parul tau! Consider ca e unul din aspectele forte ale unei fete si trebuie sa il tratam ca atare! Este indicat sa o setezi la 150 grade astfel incat sa nu ti-l arzi de la prima utilizare.

GRESEALA #3: Continui procedura chiar daca vezi ca iese fum!

OPRESTE-TE PENTRU NUMELE LUI DUMNEZEU! Daca vezi ca iese fum din par sau din placa, opreste-te… sigur ceva este in neregula. By the way, stii ca trebuie sa ai parul perfect uscat cand te indrepti cu placa, nu? Sincer sa va spun, nu prea cred in placile de par cu acea tehnologie cu micro climatizare rezistenta la incretire, special pentru parul umed. N-am incercat, insa sunt reticenta!

#myfavourite: Babyliss Pro Fast&Furious …

The hair straightener is pretty easy to use and it even has instructions for use, but who reads them? Over the years, I’ve watched carefully the beauty ritual of all my friends before going out and I noticed that fixing the hair is the last thing on the list. Either you choose to straighten it, or to curl it, to braid it or to do a quick bun, you want it to be perfect. That’s why you don’t want to ruin it by putting your shirt on, or to tangle some threads in the zipper. So, it’s the right thing to do!

What’s the wrong thing to do is to forget the steps before using the hair straightener/curling iron!

MISTAKE #1: You don’t use a spray protection before it!

You should protect your hair when you choose to expose it to higher temperatures! It’s the right thing to do because we tend to exaggerate with the temperature (choose the 3-rd temperature out of 5). If you go to a specialized shop, you will find special products that will help you to do that, before and after the use of the hair straightener or the curling iron. The only problem is not to forget to use them!

A friend of mine forced me to use a spray protection from Kallos, but it was a waste of time! I am not blaming the product itself, nor the brand, it’s just… we’re not compatible with each other! The best choice was the oil that I bought from Glamour Beauty Salon (Thank you, Gabriela Nasie!) – Echos Line Seliar Beauty Fluid (with argan oil) – . The argan oil is well-known as the beauty elixir and my hair is grateful for it. This product disciplines the hair without making it greasy and the smell is amazing!

MISTAKE #2: You choose the highest temperature!

The hair straighteners you can buy from the stores get up to 250 degrees. That doesn’t mean that you have to set the temperature to maximum. It’s a mockery to your own hair! I think that the hair is one of our best assets and, us girls, we have to be careful with it! The right thing to do is to set the temperature up to 150 degrees, so that you do not burn it!

MISTAKE #3: You go on with it, even if your hair starts to smell like smoke!

STOP IT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! If you see that your hair is burning, stop it… for sure something’s wrong! By the way, you know that your hair has to be dry when you use it, right? To be honest, I don’t really trust the hair straighteners with micro climate technology resistant to the frizz, especially for the wet hair. I haven’t tried it, but I am reluctant to it!

SALES… RESET AND RESTART! Blog de moda Bacau

[RO]                                                                                                                                                       [EN]

Perioada reducerilor (Reducerile de iarna Ianuarie-Februarie & Reducerile de vara Iulie-August) este un motiv bun pentru care scoatem toti banii pusi deoparte si recuperam pentru cat n-am cheltuit tot anul. De cele mai multe ori, nici nu tinem evidenta a ceea ce cheltuim si cel mai important, cat cheltuim.

Forfota din magazine incepe rapid si preturile rosii sunt la mare cautare. Avand in vedere tentatia tuturor pieselor reduse, indicat este sa fii sincera cu tine si sa cantaresti lucrurile inainte de a ajunge la casa de marcat. Am nevoie de această camasa? Am cu ce asorta fusta asta? Nu e prea scurta rochia pentru stilul meu? Poseta asta pare la fel cu cea pe care o am deja in dulap… DECIZII, DECIZII, DECIZII! Iata cateva aspecte care sper sa iti ridice niste semne de intrebare in ceea ce priveste shopping-ul in perioada de #sales!

#1. Dar parca nu-mi mai place!

Din propria experienta, dar si din simpla observatie a comportamentelor prietenelor mele, pantofii odata doriti si ulterior cumparati, parca nu mai prezinta acelasi interes ca la inceput (nu e o regula general valabila). I-ai admirat in vitrina, i-ai probat, ai vazut si alte variante de culori, alte modele, insa pretul este mult peste ceea ce poti oferi. Astfel, ajungi sa astepti perioada reducerilor mai mult ca orice, pentru a putea spera macar ca vor avea un pret rezonabil. Momentul mult asteptat a venit si ti i-ai cumparat! I-ai purtat o data, de doua ori si gata, nu-ti mai plac… nu exista o explicatie logica pentru care se intampla asta! De obicei, dorim ce nu putem avea, insa trebuie sa intelegem ca “aerul de nou” nu dureaza o vesnicie si pantofii mult doriti au iesit din “globul de cristal” in care i-ai plasat initial. Un alt aspect care te va descuraja si mai mult este faptul ca ii intalnesti pe strada din ce in ce mai des, intrucat admiratoarele aceluiasi model au procedat ca tine!

#2. Se poarta poncho-ul! Imi cumpar unul!

Nu! Nu! Nu! Nu e o idee buna sa iti cumperi piese vestimentare care nu te caracterizeaza doar pentru ca se poarta. Ai sa dai o groaza de bani pe un poncho, iar acasa vei realiza ca nu e conform stilului tau, nu gasesti contextul potrivit in care sa il porti, iti contureaza gresit silueta s.a. Cand esti intr-un magazin, cauta sa evaluezi posibilitatea de a purta in mai multe imprejurari acel articol, sa il transformi intr-o “piesa clasica” purtabila ani la rand. Exemple elocvente: ghete negre de tip biker, fusta creion intr-o culoare neutra, un pulover din casmir, o geaca de blugi, o geaca din piele, un tricou simplu alb, un trench bej. Acestea sunt piese care nu se vor demoda niciodata, de aceea vor costa mai mult decat ai estimat, ba ma mult, te sfatuiesc sa nu faci rabat la calitate. A nu se intelege ca la fiecare sesiune de cumparaturi trebuie sa cauti piesele clasice in devenire, doar articole versatile. Fa-ti de cap, insa nu arunca banii pe un “moft” doar pentru ca e in tendinte!

#3. Brandul garanteaza si calitatea!

Nu! Nu! Nu! Materialul si maniera in care e croit un articol vestimentar redau calitatea. De fapt, porti eticheta sau produsul in sine? Iti doresti o bucata de brand sau o piesa vestimentara adevarata? Daca esti norocoasa, le ai pe amandoua! Dupa cum am spus si in paragraful anterior, vei arata mai mult decat ridicol daca porti ceva care nu apartine stilului personal, dar are eticheta buna. Se va observa cu usurinta ca e un look fortat!

✔ Evalueaza tot ce iti trece prin mana cu sange rece!

✔ ✔ Ti-ai dori produsul respectiv daca nu ar mai fi la pret redus?

✔ ✔ ✔ Ti-ar atrage atentia daca ar fi un “no brand”?

The sales period (Winter Sales  January-mid February & Summer Sales  July-mid August) is a good reason to bring on the table all the money set aside and begin to catch up regarding the shopping. Most often, we don’t even keep track of what we spend during the entire year.

The fuss around the stores begins faster than expected and the red tags become the most important thing in the world. Given the temptation of all the discounts, the most important thing is to be honest with yourself and to weight things up before getting to the cash register. Do I really need this shirt? How can I match this skirt? Isn’t this dress too short for my style? This purse looks just the same with the one that I already have in my closet… DECISIONS, DECISIONS, DECISIONS! Here are some real aspects meant to raise you some questions marks regarding the shopping frenzy during the #sales period!

#1. But I no longer like it!

From experience and out of the simple observation upon my friend’s behaviors, the shoes that you want so badly, once bought, they become no longer in your radar afterwards. (not available for everyone). You’ve admired them in the display window, you try them on, you’ve seen them in different colors, but the price is way above what you can pay for. So, you wait for the sales period more than anything, just to buy them at the perfect price. You bought them! You wore them once or twice and then… you don’t really like them anymore! There is no logic explanation for that! Usually, we want the things we can’t get, but we have to understand that “the new vibe” isn’t going to last forever and those shoes become way above your interest. Here’s another thing: You will see them on the street style more often because… they were on sale and other girls took advantage of it just like you did!

#2. Poncho is the “it” clothing item! I should buy one!

No! No! No! It’s not a good idea to buy clothing items that don’t suit you just because they became a trend. You will buy the specific one, even pay o fortune for it, and you’ll realize that it’s not really your style, it highlights the worst in your figure, you can’t find a proper opportunity to wear it, and the list could go on. When you are in a store, you think and re-think before buying it: Is it suitable for more than one occasion? It’s a “classic” clothing item? Can I wear it next year? Here are some examples: the black biker boots, the neutral pencil skirt, a cashmere sweater, a denim jacket, a leather jacket, a basic white t-shirt, a trench. These are the clothing items that will never go out of style, that’s why it will cost you more that you expected, so I advise you not to compromise the quality. Just to be clear, it’s not mandatory to buy only classics every time you go shopping, just choose the versatile ones. Do your thing, but do not waste money on a “whim” just because is in trend!

#3. The brand guarantees the quality!

No! No! No! It’s the fabric and the tailoring that give the quality of a particular clothing item! Either you choose to wear the label or the product itself. In fact, what you wish for is a piece of the brand or a piece of clothing? If you’re lucky, you’ll get them both! As I said before, you will look ridiculous if you wear something that is not suitable for your style, even if it has the right label. The people will notice a strained outfit!

✔ Rate everything going through your hand in cold blood!

✔ ✔ Would you like that product if it would be at a reduced price?

✔ ✔ ✔ It would draw your attention if it would be a “no brand”?

LOCATIE:  Restaurant Miorita, Bacau

PARTICIPANTE: 50 de doamne si domnisoare (una mai frumoasa ca alta)

O dimineata cu stil si aroma de cafea! In acest mod a debutat ziua de dupa evenimentul pe care l-am organizat in Arena Mall cu ocazia zilei de Black Friday.

Ce mai poate fi de spus despre Ana Morodan? In 2014, a fost votata “Digital Diva of the Year” la cea mai importanta competitie a fashionistelor din online din Romania, fiind supranumita “contesa” blogurilor de fashion din Romania. Bloggerita este recunoscuta pentru stilul ei unic si inovator.

Ana a venit cu o prezentare, un speech delicios si cuvinte simpatice. Una este cand vezi omul in online si alta e sa il cunosti in offline. Astfel, am descoperit ca este o persoana energica si ne-a cucerit imediat prin atitudinea ei pozitiva. Cel mai mult mi-a placut ca a vorbit deschis, a fost critica cu ea insasi, a etalat o nonsalanta extraordinara. Teoriile ei despre feminitate si despre cum sa te imbraci in functie de silueta mi-au facut ziua mai buna. Iata punctele care s-au discutat!

#1. Ce este un “Safety Look”? “Safety look” este acea tinuta la care apelezi cand chiar nu ai inspiratie. Este vorba despre un outfit versatil care se poate mula in aproape orice situatie. Un exemplu elocvent ar fi blugii drepti, camasa alba usor lejera, ghete Chelsea si o geanta + un colier oversized. Al meu este format din: pantalonii office negri, botine cu toc, o geanta incapatoare intr-o culoare tare, un pulover lejer care lasa la vedere un umar (culoare neutra) si accesorii statement in ton cu geanta.

#2. Care este semnatura ta stilistica? Semnatura stilistica este acel ceva care te defineste. Il porti cu tine oriunde te-ai duce, in orice context ai fi. Exemple: rujul rosu, machiajul de tip “cat eye”, oja rosie, faimoasa esarfa alba Hermes din “Diavolul se imbraca de la Prada”… A mea este eyeliner-ul negru.

#3. Ce ai in geanta? Daca tot avem posete incapatoare, hai sa punem si ceva util in ele: un parfum de cativa ml, o rola de scame, o pudra compacta, un lac de unghii (pentru retusul unghiilor sau situatiile jenante cand ti se rup ciorapii), o pereche de ciorapi s.a.

#4. Accesoriile fac diferenta! Da, chiar fac diferenta si scot din anonimat orice articol vestimentar banal.

#5. A fi sau a nu fi misterioasa! Ce-i drept, in istorie au ramas tocmai fetele care au avut sarm, un stil vestimentar propriu sau o personalitate cu adevarat deosebita. Este imperios necesar ca o domnisoara/doamna sa lase o urma de mister si sa aiba o atitudine adecvata, fara a expune totul gratuit.

#6. Care sunt tipurile de siluete? PARA (Beyonce, Rihanna, Shakira), MAR (Jennifer Hudson, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Angelina Jolie), CLEPSIDRA (Halle Berry), DREPTUNGHI (Cameron Diaz, Nicole Kidman, Keira Knightley), TRIUNGHI INVERSAT (Renee Zellweger, Charlize Theron, Demi Moore).

In urma masuratorilor de rigoare, am aflat ca sunt… dreptunghi. Astfel, focusul meu va fi pe picioare si brate. Pot purta faimoasele turtleneck a.k.a. malete, bluze cu un decolteu mediu, bluze cu umeri “falsi”.

La finalul cursului, am avut si o sesiune de shopping! Am scotocit prin hainutele si accesoriile pe care le-a adus Ana din shop-ul ei. Produsele le puteti vedea si comanda accesand www.morodan.com.ro Eu am achizitionat un colier cel putin interesant. Cautati-l in galeria foto!

Am ras, am glumit, am invatat, am experimentat! Am gustat prajituri delicioase de la Mignon Caffe, am servit bautura preferata a fotomodelelor a.k.a. apa plata cu lamaie, am primit revista Beau Monde, o esarfa eleganta dar si un voucher la Salonul de infrumusetare Floarea de Colt (ritual KERASTASE cu diagnostic, samponare, tratament ulei si fionat + un machiaj realizat de Anca Alexandra Higiu), am facut fotografii frumoase via Andreia Gradin Photography si am admirat produsele handmade din Camara lui Aba.

Organizarea a fost impecabila din toate punctele de vedere! La mai multe!

 

“Trendurile sunt simple accesorii trecatoare. Stilul personal e cel care conteaza!”

(Ana Morodan)

LOCATION: Miorita Restaurant, Bacau

PARTICIPANTS: 50 beautiful ladies

A fashionable morning with a good coffee! That’s how I started the day after the event I organized in Arena Mall celebrating Black Friday.

What is there to say about Ana Morodan? In 2014, she won the “Digital Diva of the Year”, the most important award for the fashion bloggers out there in Romania. She is known as the “countess” of the fashion blogs in Romania, well known for her unique personal style.

Ana came with a PP presentation and a delicious speech. One person can be different in offline, rather than online. Being there, I discovered that she is an energetic person and she inspired us with her positive attitude. What I loved the most, is that she opened up to us and she even criticised herself. Her theories about femininity and how to dress up according to your silhouette made my day. Here are the topics we discussed!

#1. What is a “Safety Look”? A “Safety look” is that specific outfit you turn to, when you have absolutely no inspiration. It’s about that versatile outfit you can wear in almost every situation. A good example would be a pair of jeans with a straight cut, a simple white shirt, Chelsea boots and an oversized bag and necklace. My safety look is black office trousers, heeled boots, a colored maxi bag, an off-shoulder sweater (neutral color) and statement accessories matching the bag.

#2. What is your signature style? The signature style is that specific thing that defines you. You carry it wherever you go, in almost every situation. E.g.: the red lipstick, the “cat eye” make up, red nail polish, the famous Hermes white scarf from “The Devil wears Prada”… Mine is the black eyeliner.

#3. What’s in your bag? Since we all have bags we carry on everywhere, let’s put something useful in them like: a perfume, a lint roller, a compact powder, a transparent nail polish (to retouch the nails or to get out of the uncomfortable situations when you have a crack in your stockings), a pair of stockings and so on.

#4. The accessories make the difference! Yes, they do! They can highlight any ordinary piece of clothing!

#5. To be or not to be a a mystery! Fact: women with an unique style, charm and outstanding personality made history. It’s mandatory for a lady to leave behind a trace of mystery and a proper attitude rather than to expose too much.

#6. What are the types of silhouettes? PEAR-SHAPED (Beyonce, Rihanna, Shakira), APPLE-SHAPED (Jennifer Hudson, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Angelina Jolie), HOURGLASS SHAPE (Halle Berry), RECTANGLE SHAPE (Cameron Diaz, Nicole Kidman, Keira Knightley), INVERTED TRIANGLE SHAPE (Renee Zellweger, Charlize Theron, Demi Moore).

According to the measurements, I found out that I am a… rectangle. That’s why I am supposed to wear something that highlights the legs and arms. I can wear the famous turtlenecks, shirts with a medium cleavage, shirts with “false” shoulders.

At the end of the class, we had a shopping spree! I fumbled through the clothes and the accessories that Ana brought from her store. You can see and order them on www.morodan.com.ro I bought an interesting necklace. It has that je-ne-sais-quoi. Go to the gallery and search for it!

We laughed, we learned, we experienced, we had a good time! We tasted those delicious cupcakes from Mignon Caffe, we served water with lemon (the favourite drink of the models), we received the Beau Monde magazine, an elegant scarf and a voucher to Floarea de Colt Beauty Salon (a KERASTASE ritual with shampoo and oil treatment + a professional makeup session by Anca Alexandra Higiu), we took beautiful photos via Andreia Gradin Photography and  we admired the handmade products by Camara lui Aba.

The event was impeccable in every aspect of it! Carry on! Here is the outfit I wore!

Tu stii care e stilul tau vestimentar?

[RO]                                                                                                                                                       [EN]

Iata un exemplu de <STIL ARUNCAT>! Cine ma cunoaste personal, stie despre ce vorbesc!

Aceasta tinuta este exemplul perfect de zi in care iti doresti sa te simti frumoasa, insa sa nu depui prea mult efort pentru asta! Iei la indemana camasa de blugi oversized, suficient de lunga incat sa acopere ce trebuie si cum trebuie, un pulover alb pe gat, o bucata de geanta de blana pentru a-ti manifesta dorul de… iarna si… accesorii!

Totul se termina cu bine cand ai perechea perfecta de cizme: din piele maro, lungi pe picior, cu toc si detalii metalice pe unde “se simte nevoia”. Am fost cam reticenta in achizitionarea acestor cizme anul trecut, insa s-au dovedit a fi versatile, ba chiar le consider a fi o piesa “statement” in garberoba.

Personal, nu-mi place acest imprimeu care te duce cu gandul la pielea de sarpe, insa, in aceasta combinatie, arata chiar bine! Cizmele sunt foarte comode cu acel toc metalic de 9 cm, au o taietura in spate, in partea de sus, menita sa ofere confort cand stai pe scaun.

Nu au fost prima optiune cand am intrat in magazin, insa, odata probate am stiut ca vor fi ale mele!

Camasa de blugi pe post de rochie poate fi purtata cu o bluza pe deasupra lasand partea de jos vizibila, sau chiar cu o fusta mini, lasand la vedere doar tivul camasii (via Chiara Ferragni). Orice varianta ai alege, sigur vei fi remarcata!

Consider ca moda este o lume plina de imaginatie si te lasa sa te joci cu diferite texturi, forme si culori care iti induc starea de spirit din ziua respectiva! Cate dintre voi nu aveti mood-uri de tipul…? – Azi vreau sa par mai tanara! Azi vreau sa par mai matura! Azi vreau sa fiu o scolarita! Azi vreau culoare! Azi voi fi “minimal”!

Eu am decis ca azi sa am un <STIL ARUNCAT>!

Here is a perfect example of a <CAST AWAY> fashion style! Those of you who know me personally, you know what I am talking about!

This outfit is an example of that specific day when you want to feel beautiful but you don’t really want to work for it! You take an oversized denim shirt, long enough to cover your best parts, a white sweater, a furry bag just to tell everyone that you miss winter and… accessories!

It all ends well when you have the perfect pair of boots: brown leather heeled boots, just below the knees with metallic details where “is needed”. I was a little bit skeptic in buying these boots last year, but they proved to be versatile, they are the “statement” boots.

Personally, I am not a fond of this print that leads you to the snake skin, but, in this combination they look pretty good! The boots are very comfy with a 9 cm heel, with a cut in the back meant to be suitable for the sitting position.

They weren’t my first option when I entered into the store, but, once I put them on, I knew they will be mine!

The long denim shirt can be quite a dress if you wear it right: with a sweater on top, or even a mini skirt on the bottom, leaving out the hem of the shirt (via Chiara Ferragni). Either way, you’ll be noticed!

I really think that fashion is a world full of imagination and allows you to play with different fabrics, shapes and colors that induce the state of mind from that specific day! How many of you have moods like…? – Today I want to look younger! Today I want to look older! Today I want to feel just  like a school girl! Today I feel like wearing colors! Today I will be “minimal”!

I decided that today I will be a <CAST AWAY>!

YOU’VE GOT TO BE HUNGRY! #LesBrown #Motivation

[RO]                                                                                                                                                       [EN]

“You gotta be HUNGRY!! What are you willing to do today…to choose a brighter future tomorrow? Are you hungry enough to reinvent yourself…to grow beyond your present circumstances…to accept no excuses for not succeeding…to get up again even if you’ve been knocked down…to work harder than you ever have before…for your own life and your dream? Stop settling…you deserve to do more than just survive.

You gotta be HUNGRY!” (Les Brown)

De la nastere pana la moarte, fiecare individ are un singur scop: sa se dezvolte! Dezvoltare personala, dezvoltare intelectuala, dezvoltare profesionala etc. Daca tot avem acest obiectiv, poate ar trebui mai intai sa ne lamurim un pic cu privire la ce inseamna. De ce este atat de important sa ne dezvoltam?! De ce nu este suficient sa invatam strictul necesar pentru noi si esentialul pentru supravietuire?

Suntem oameni nu animale, prin urmare, suntem inzestrati cu ratiune si constiinta! Cadem, ne ridicam, suntem pesimisti, devenim optimisti, suntem slabi, devenim puternici… evoluam! Functionam pe baza de emotii, sentimente si senzatii care ne determina sa actionam in cele mai variate moduri. Avem nevoie sa creem si sa dezvoltam relatii, avem nevoie sa simtim ca apartinem mediului si ca ne apartinem unii altora, cu referire la nevoia de apartenenta din piramida nevoilor a lui Maslow. In cele de mai jos, am enumerat niste sfaturi pe care eu le urmez zilnic ca sa nu-mi pierd focus-ul!

#1. Fa ce in mod normal nu stii sa faci! N-ai fost instruit, n-ai citit, n-ai auzit… insa te implici oricum… pentru ca traim si invatam in mod continuu!

#2. Sustine-ti opiniile prin argumente! Daca in decursul discutiei consideri ca gresesti, admite acest lucru fara rusine si completeaza-ti strategia pentru scopul final!

#3. Vizualizeaza tot! E suficient sa iti imaginezi produsul final si deja drumul pana acolo devine mai usor!

#4. Fa demersurile mai repede decat ai planuit initial! In unele cazuri, daca stai prea mult pe ganduri, ratezi startul si pierzi timp pretios! Un lucru e sigur: timpul e singurul lucru din viata pe care nu-l poti recupera!

#5. Fii echilibrat in orice! In alimentatie, in sport, in relatiile cu ceilalti, la locul de munca, in cheltuileli, in toate.

#6. Fii spontan! Lasa la voia intamplarii imaginatia si traieste clipa! Cum am mai sus: timpul pierdut nu-l recuperezi niciodata! Fa lucrurile la timpul lor! Un exemplu elocvent: toata viata am avut o frica de apa, insa, mi-am propus ca anul acesta sa invat sa inot si sa inving fobia asta odata pentru totdeauna. Si am reusit! Este o satisfactie imensa sa castigi o lupta interioara dupa doua decenii de existenta.

#7. Sapa adanc! Informeaza-te despre temele de actualitate! Citeste presa, citeste carti din domeniul tau, din domenii diferite, citeste orice lucru de folos care iti pica in mana!

#8. Mai bine gata decat perfect! Retuseaza dupa ce ai terminat, ai tot timpul din lume! Startul e cel mai greu in toate.

#9. Foloseste-te de ce resurse ai! Pune-ti in valoare atuurile!

#10. Fii curajos! Inca e valabila afirmatia “daca nu risti, nu castigi”!

#11. Fii “infometat” in fiecare minut! Asta inseamna sa fii perseverent cu tine insuti, sa nu renunti pentru nimic la scopul pe care ti l-ai propus initial. Acest lucru e cel mai greu de indeplinit deoarece multe persoane isi pierd interesul pe parcurs. Nu fi una dintre ele! Pune pe hartie scenariile cele mai proaste si porneste la drum!

#12. Infrunta-ti temerile!

#13. Imprumuta idei de la altii, nu copia pur si simplu! Nu-ti pierde originalitatea nicicum pentru ca iti vei pierde identitatea! Vorba aia: Be yourself! Everyone else is already taken!” (Oscar Wilde)

#14. Greseste! Fara greseli, nu te poti corecta, nu poti deveni mai bun!

#15. Timpul nu schimba nimic! De fapt, tu esti cel care se schimba!

#16. Nu intreba de ce?! Intreabă de ce nu?!

#17. Colaboreaza cu ceilalti! Incearca, pe cat posibil, sa faci munca de echipa acolo unde e cazul. Mai mult ca sigur, te vei lovi de orgolii, de persoane care poate iti vor fura laurii si ideile, iti vor ascunde informatii valoroase din rea-vointa, insa infrunta-le elegant prin progresul tau.

#18. Schimba-te! Creste! Evolueaza!


From birth to death, each person has one meaning in life: to grow! Personal growth, intellectual growth, professional growth… Since we all have that same objective, maybe we know more about it. Why is it so important to grow?! Why isn’t there enough to learn the basics for survival?

We all are humans, not animals, therefore, we have mind and consciousness! We fall, we get up, we are pessimists, we become optimists, we are weak, we become strong… we evolve! We function based on emotions and feeling which determine the actions in the most elaborate ways. We need to establish relationships, we need to feel that we are part of something, of someone, as the Maslow Pyramid sustains. In the following, I shared some of the advices I follow every day in order to always stay focused!

#1. Do what you don’t know! You never read, heard or been trained for it… but you choose to do it anyway… because we live to learn and learn to live!

#2. Sustain your opinion through arguments! If you got it wrong, admit it and complete the strategy to develop the conversation!

#3. Visualize it! It’s better and easier to fight when you picture the final product!

#4. Start earlier than planned! In some cases, if you hesitate too long, you miss the START and you lose precious time! If there’s one thing for sure it’s that the time is irreversible.

#5. Be balanced in everything! In nutrition, health, sports, the friendships you have, at the work place, in spending money, in everything.

#6. Be spontaneous! Go with the flow! As I said before: the time is irreversible! Here’s the perfect example: my whole life I was afraid of water, but, I promised to myself that this year I will defeat this phobia once and for all. And I succeeded! It’s a tremendous accomplishment after two decades of fear.

#7. Dig deeper! Read about current events! Read the newspapers, read book related you your interests, read anything useful that you can find!

#8. Better done than perfect! You can retouch after you finished it because you have all the time in the world! The beginning is always the hardest!

#9. Use what you have! Use your advantages!

#10. Be brave! If you don’t play, you can’t win!

#11. Be “hungry” every minute of it! Be consistent and don’t let go! This one is hard because lots of people just lose the interest. Don’t be one of the quitters! Be aware of the worst scenario and start the project!

#12. Face your fears!

#13. Borrow ideas from other, don’t copy them! “Be yourself! Everyone else is already taken!” (Oscar Wilde)

#14. Make a mistake! Without mistakes, there is no improvement!

#15. Time doesn’t change a thing! In fact, the one that’s changing is you!

#16. Don’t ask why?! Ask why not?!

#17. Teamwork! Where it’s possible, try to do teamwork when necessary. You’ll find people with vanity, people who take advantage of your success, people who can steal your ideas, but face them with your progress!

#18. Change! Grow! Evolve!

DE CE MACHIAJUL TAU ARATA...CIUDAT_cover

[RO]                                                                                                                                                       [EN]

Te pui pe un scaun in fata oglinzii.

Iti deschizi cu mandrie trusa de makeup cu toate nuantele posibile si … imposibile.

Iti scoti din sertar rimelul, creionul de buze, creionul de ochi, blush-ul si alte accesorii.

⇒ READY – SET – GO!

La final, constati ca ceva este in neregula! Cu toata indemanarea si cu toate tutorialele inspirationale de pe internet, parca tot nu ti-a iesit cum te-ai asteptat! Iata posibilele cauze!

  1. Nuanta fondului de ten nu se potriveste cu nuanta ta reala. Din acest motiv chipul tau are o culoare diferita fata de restul corpului. In cazul in care vrei sa adaugi si o costumatie de Halloween, in regula, daca nu, cu siguranta nu vrei sa atragi atentia in felul asta. Intotdeauna testeaza nuanta fondului de ten in magazinele de profil, aplicand o picatura chiar pe gat sa vezi daca intr-adevăr e nuanta potrivita, altfel, ai platit un produs inutil.
  2. Anticearcanul este mult mai deschis decat nuanta fonului de ten. Te vei afla intr-o situatie dificila, intrucat nu iti vei da seama in oglinda de acasa, decat daca ai o lumina foarte buna. Prin anticearcan, doresti sa ascunzi defectele, nu sa le aduci in lumina reflectoarelor. Alege un anticearcan in nuanta piersicii deoarece acesta va ascunde orice tendinta albastruie din zona ochilor.
  3. Nu aplici fond de ten si pe piept. Cand porti o bluza decoltata sau o rochie in care iti expui pieptul, ideal este sa il pudrezi putin intrucat risti sa ai doua nuante diferite in fotografii. Aplica fond de ten pe gat si decolteu cu ajutorul unui burete pentru a avea efectul dorit.
  4. Omiti urechile cand aplici fond de ten. La fel ca si in cazul anterior, vei avea un aspect neplacut dacă omiti urechile. Indicat este sa aplici o nuanta corespunzatoare, intocmai ca problema diferentei de culoare sa nu existe. Daca iti alegi fondul de ten potrivit, aplicarea lui pe urechi nici nu e necesara.
  5. Aplici nuante electrizante in prea multe zone ale fetei. In acest mod, vei atrage atentia in prea multe unghiuri si interlocutorul tau isi va pierde complet orientarea. Putine persoane reusesc sa se machieze in aceasta maniera si le si iasa.
  6. Genele false sunt prea evidente. Daca ti le aplici acasa, mare atentie la pasii de respectat, pentru ca vrei ca rezultatul sa fie unul bun. Nu iti doresti sa se desprinda imediat ce ai iesit din casa. Dupa ce ti le-ai aplicat, iar lipiciul lor s-a uscat, aplica eyeliner chiar din locul in care incep genele false. Ideal este nici sa nu se observe ca le ai, intrucat vor parea de-a dreptul grosolane, parca n-ar fi din peisaj. Daca nu esti sigura pe tine, mai bine mergi la salon. Nu e asa scump sa ti le pui (cam 200 lei), insa merita toti banii daca ai un eveniment la care vrei sa impresionezi. Ulterior, platesti doar intretinerea lor, adica adaugarea catorva fire.
  7. Blush-ul este aplicat gresit. Blush-ul nu trebuie aplicat chiar sub ochi sau aproape de nas intrucat va sublinia exact ce vrei tu sa ascunzi. Pudra de obraz trebuie aplicata pe obraji si putin sub acestia.
  8. Iti faci ochii de pisica exagerati. Prin definitie, efectul ochilor de pisica este menit sa fie unul sexy si vrei ca efectul asta sa fie garantat. Dacă iti doresti sa incerci acest truc, trebuie sa ai multa dexteritate. Da nu o ai, doar prin exercitiu o obtii. Acest machiaj implica multa concentrare si precizie in a trasa conturul cu tus sau creion, dar rezultatul este unul spectaculos, care merita efortul.
  9. Rujul rosu care nu rezista la transfer. Fie iti iei un ruj rezistent la transfer, fie aplici un contur de buze inainte. Nimic nu e mai urat decat sa zambesti si sa ai ruj pe dinti. Personal, consider dizgratios chiar si urma de ruj lasata pe cana de cafea.
  10. Aplici un creion de ochi visiniu care te face sa pari mai obosita ca oricand. In locul acestuia, foloseste un creion negru sau maro inchis, in functie de nuanta tenului.
  11. Sprancenele tale sunt prea definite. Daca mama natura nu te-a inzestrat cu sprancenele perfecte, foloseste o nuanta de fard putin mai deschisa decat parul natural si contureaza-le in voie. Incearca sa nu le “colorezi” prea intens si nici sa depasesti conturul natural. Daca se poarta sprancenele conturate cat mai natural, chiar si groase, tu de ce ti le-ai face subtiri, artificiale? Mai trebuie sa dau exemplul sprancenelor binecunoscute a lei Cara Delevigne?

You sit in your chair in front of the mirror.

You proudly open your makeup kit with all possible and impossible shades of color.

You search in the beauty drawer the mascara, the lip liner, the eye liner, the blush and other stuff to work with.

⇒ READY – SET – GO!

In the end, you realize that something went terribly wrong! With all your skills and all the inspirational tutorials on the internet, the final makeup is not what you expected! Here’s why?

  1. The shade of the foundation does not match to your skin color. That’s why your face has a different color than the rest of the body. That’s ok only if you want to put a Halloween costume, if not, you definitely don’t want to draw attention in a negative way. Always test the foundation at the store, by applying some of it on your neck to see the color that suits you better.
  2. The concealer is way lighter than your foundation. You’ll find yourself in a difficult situation, because you won’t notice the difference at home if you have a poor light. The concealer is meant to hide the flaws, not to bring them into the spotlight. Choose one in the shade of the peach because it will hide every dark circle underneath the eyes.
  3. You forget to apply the foundation on your chest. When you have to wear a shirt with a cleavage or a dress, the deal is to powder the chest just a little bit because, in the end, you’ll just have two different shades and the photos will not be a success. You may apply foundation or powder on your neck too.
  4. You forget to apply the foundation on the ears. It’s the same as #3. Apply the shade that suits you. If you choose the right foundation, applying it to your ears is not even mandatory.
  5. You choose electric colors in way too many areas of your face. That way, you’ll draw attention in way too many angles and the others will lose their focus. Only skilled girls manage to pull that off.
  6. The false eyelashes stand out too much. If you apply them at home, be careful on every step of the way, because you want them to look good. You don’t want to lose them during your walk outside. When you’re done applying them and the glue is dry, draw the eyeliner right where they start. The perfect false eyelashes are those that aren’t noticeable. If you feel you can’t pull it off, it’s better to go to a beauty salon. It’s not that expensive (round 200 lei), but it’s worth it if you have a special event in which you want to get noticed. If you want to keep them, you have to pay just the maintenance, to add extra threads.
  7. Your blush is in the wrong place. The blush shouldn’t get too close to your nose or your eyes because your flaws will stand out. It should be diffused from the apples of your cheeks outward toward your temples, leaving you fresh-faced.
  8. Your cat eyes are too…meow. By definition, the effect of the cat eyes is supposed to be sexy and you just want that to happen. If you try this trick, you’ll have to be skilled. If you are not that qualified, just practice. This makeup involves a lot of concentration and precision in drawing the best contour, but the result is just wow and it’s all worth it.
  9. The red lipstick is all over the place. Either you buy a good one, either you apply a lip liner before it. Nothing is worse than to smile and to have lipstick on your teeth. I find disgusting even the mark of lipstick that sticks to the coffee mug.
  • You choose a burgundy eyeliner that makes you look more tired than ever. You should rather choose a black one or a dark brown according to your natural shade of skin.
  • Your brows are too defined. If the mother-nature has not given you the perfect brows, just use a special tool that defines them in a lighter shade than your natural hair color. Try not to color them up too much. If the trend is to wear them as natural as they are, even if they are thick as hell, why would you ruin that just to make them thinner and ugly? Do I have to mention Cara Delevigne?

PERFECTION IS THE DISEASE OF A NATION_Flawless

[RO]                                                                                                                                                       [EN]

Stiu ca titlul suna ciudat! Stiu ca aveti un deja-vu! Insa, spre mirarea mea si a voastra, consider ca redactarea acestor reguli de conduita pentru a fi “o lady” este absolut necesara!

⇔ REMINDER: Pentru mine! Pentru tine! Pentru ele! Iata care sunt acestea din punctul meu de vedere!

#1. Don’t kiss & tell! Daca cineva ti s-a confesat cu incredere, mai cu seama o prietena, nu transmite informatia doar ca sa impresionezi, sa barfesti, sa faci conversatie. Cu siguranta e o informatie valoroasa, motiv pentru care cu atat mai mult trebuie sa fii mandra de faptul ca ti-a impartasit-o tocmai tie!

#2. Nu fi ipocrita! Gen: nu iti cumpara Dior daca nu ai ce pune in stomac! Nu purta tot aurul din lume pe tine ca sa arati ceea ce nu esti! Nu te minti singura! Nu te ajuta cu nimic si nici nu iti sustine imaginea pe care o pretinzi!

#3. Fii increzatoare in tine si in propriile forte!

#4. “TE ROG” si “MULTUMESC” au fost, sunt si vor fi la moda!

#5. Cumpara-ti un parfum placut, fin! Ca sa va dau un exemplu elocvent, din cele 5 parfumuri pe care le am acasa, doar unul ma caracterizeaza cu adevarat! L-am descoperit in Italia acum 4 ani, cand am achizitionat niste cosmetice de la Beauty Point din Roma si am primit cadou o mostra. Acea esenta a fost #TheOne inca de atunci.

#6. Pantofii cu toc de 11 cm nu sunt pentru oricine! Decat sa te vada lumea ca te chinui sa mergi pe pantofii stiletto preferati, insa prea inalti, mai bine nu-i purta! Da, se vede! Faptul ca incaltamintea te jeneaza, se vede! Sa nu credeti ca eu n-am pantofi incomozi dar superbi din toate punctele de vedere. Insa ii port doar cand merg foaaarte putin pe jos, eventual la un restaurant unde nu fac decat sa ma asez pe scaun, nicidecum in club, la petreceri sau nunti unde dansez mult.

#7. Recunoaste-ti vina! Fie ca e in relatia de cuplu, fie ca e in relatia cu un coleg de la servici sau chiar la supermarket, daca ai gresit, admite asta! “Imi cer scuze, cred ca v-am dat mai putini bani pe produsele din cos!”, “Scuze, n-am vazut e-mailul in timp util!”, “Stiu ca trebuia sa spal vasele, insa sunt foarte obosita! Le spal, insa dupa ce ma odihnesc putin.”

#8. Numara paharele de vin pe care le bei! Cand crezi ca ai ajuns la limita admisa, opreste-te! Nimic nu e mai groaznic decat sa te imbeti si sa se vada acest lucru!

#9. Fii punctuala! Nimanui din lumea asta nu ii place sa astepte inutil!

#10. Ce tie nu-ti place, altuia nu face! Daca cel de langa tine a facut o greseala, nu rade de el! E de prost-gust, il faci sa se simta prost, si, in fond, nimeni nu e perfect, iar tu stii asta!

#11. Nu te impotmoli in termenul “PERFECTIUNE”! Nimeni din lumea asta nu reprezinta perfectiunea intruchipata! Nici fotomodelele, nici starurile de cinema, nici tu! Cunoaste-ti defectele si accepta-le asa cum sunt! #YouLookDisgusting

#12. Informatia inseamna putere! Daca este vreo combinatie ideala in lumea asta, aceea e frumusetea cu inteligenta. E crunt sa te simti pe dinafara! TV, presa, reviste de specialitate, www.descopera.ro www.ceascadecultura.ro www.historia.ro www.vogue.com – take your pick! Citeste mult, bine si cu rost!

#13. Bunul simt primeaza in orice situatie!

#14. Pe cat posibil, mentine-te in forma! Fie ca te duci la sala, fie ca faci abdomene acasa, fie ca te plimbi prin magazine J ocupa-te de aspectul tau fizic, nu doar prin haine, ci si prin alimentatie si sport. Ideea e sa fii energica si sa te simti bine in pielea ta, nu neaparat sa fii slaba. Tocmai ce vorbeam de increderea in sine!

#15. When in doubt, be well mannered! Nu-ti pierde cumpatul, chiar daca situatia o cere! Nu adresa injurii ca la usa cortului, chiar daca interlocutorul tau o merita cu varf si indesat. Cu totii am trecut prin situatia asta!


I know that the topic is a little odd! I know that is a deja-vu for you! But, I really think that expressing these “flawless rules” all over again is mandatory!

⇔ REMINDER: For me! For you! For them! Here they are, from my point of view!

#1. Don’t kiss & tell! If someone thought that you are trustworthy and told you a secret, especially if she’s a friend of yours, prove them right! Don’t make an entire conversation, don’t gossip that thing with others. You have to be proud that she told you, and only you. For sure, it’s valuable.

#2. Don’t be a hypocrite! Don’t buy Dior from head to toes, if you don’t have anything to eat! Do not wear 10 pounds of gold jewelry on you just to show off! Don’t lie to yourself! It doesn’t help you at all, it doesn’t sustain the image you pretend to have!

#3. Be confident in you!

#4. “PLEASE” and “THANK YOU” are not overrated! They are still fashionable!

#5. Buy yourself a nice perfume! For example, even if I have 5 different bottles of perfume at home, only one gets me completely. I found it in Italy, 4 years ago, when I bought some beauty products from Beauty Point in Rome and I got a sample of it in the bag. That scent was #TheOne ever since.

#6. 4 inches high heels are not for everyone! If you struggle just to walk in those shoes, the others can probably see that too. Don’t wear them just yet! The fact that the shoes are killing you softly, it shows! I have some pair of high heels that are uncomfortable but beautiful. I wear them only when I go somewhere with a car or when, for example, I go out at the restaurant and just sit on the chair, not at weddings and parties where I have to dance.

#7. Admit your mistakes! Even if it’s at home with your partner, or at work with a colleague or at the supermarket. Admit it! “I’m sorry but I think I didn’t give you enough money!”, “Sorry, I haven’t open just yet the Inbox”, “I know that I was supposed to wash the dishes, but I am tired! I’ll wash them, but after I take a nap for a while!”

#8. Count the glasses of wine! When you think you have reached the limit, stop! Nothing is more disgusting that a woman drunk enough to go crazy!

#9. Always be punctual! Nobody likes to wait!

#10. If you don’t like it, don’t do it to anyone! If someone made a mistake, don’t laugh at him/her! It’s tacky, you’ll just make him uncomfortable and, after all, nobody’s perfect and you know it!

#11. Don’t beat yourself up with “PERFECTION”! Nobody is perfect! Nor the models, nor the movie stars, not even you! Be aware of your flaws and embrace them! #YouLookDisgusting

#12. Knowledge is power! If there’s one perfect combination in the world, that’s beauty and intelligence. It’s hard to be left outside when it comes to debate something. TV, newspapers, magazines, www.descopera.ro www.ceascadecultura.ro www.historia.ro www.vogue.com – take your pick! Read a lot!

#13. Common sense comes first!

#14. Be fit! Either you go to the gym, either you work out at home, or even you make your cardio doing shopping all day, you have to take care of your figure! You have to do it through sports, through clothing and by eating healthy. The idea is to be energetic and to feel good in your own skin, not necessarily to be skinny. Read #11 all over again.

#15. When in doubt, be well mannered! Don’t lose it, even if the situation gets you up to your nerve, even if the person you are talking to, totally deserves it! We’ve all been there!

“It was love at first sight, at last sight, at ever and ever sight.”
(Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita)

[RO]                                                                                                                                                       [EN]

Stilul Lolita este un stil vestimentar lasat la voia imaginatiei. Lolita are atat o parte romantica cat si una sexy, provocatoare sau dimpotriva, ingenua, clasica ori de ce nu, vintage. Cu siguranta nu pot da o definitie clara si definitive intrucat e un stil vestimentar cu adevarat particular. Astfel, nu poate fi incadrat in anumite reguli, motiv pentru care m-am jucat cu diferite texturi, culori, accesorii si cu… Calvin Klein Ck Bubble Gum lip gloss, pe care l-am achizitionat de la TK Maxx (Londra).

Tu crezi in dragoste la prima vedere? Eu da! Fustita roz, pe care am achizitionat-o de la New Yorker a fost, este si va fi una din piesele mele preferate din garderoba. Imediat cum am vazut-o in magazin, am simtit ca parca cineva mi-a citit gandurile si a creat-o special pentru mine. Am vazut-o in 2 nuante: roz pudrat (foto) si un gri deschis, pe care si in ziua de azi regret ca nu l-am luat. Mi-am asumat faptul ca va fi dificil sa o asortez cu ceva ce as putea avea acasa, insa mi-am zis “Inventez!”

Astfel am integrat-o in garderoba de zi cu zi pentru un look soft si am ales sa o asortez un un pulover in culoarea untului (ZARA) si o pereche de sosete peste genunchi in aceeasi nuanta (H&M). Cu alte ocazii, am purtat-o cu un pulover negru cu umerii goi (achizitionat acum 100 de ani de la Kenvelo), ciorapi negri mati 40 den si o pereche de botine negre.

Protagonistele tinutelor de tip Lolita servesc ceai, privesc carusele, sunt in natura la un picnic. Eu am ales sa iau la purtator o acadea, lip gloss-ul preferat si sa ies in natura care parca a prins viata zilele astea.

Asadar, lasa-ti imaginatia sa zboare si “inventeaza” tinute care sa reprezinte biletul de iesire spre marele Alter Ego!

The Lolita style is left to its own imagination. Lolita has a romantic side and a sexy, provocative but ingénue one, or even classic or, why not, vintage. One thing is for sure, you can’t really define this fashion style because is truly particular in every way possible. So, you cannot frame it based on some rules, that’s why I chose to play with different textures, colors, accessories and… Calvin Klein Ck Bubble Gum lip gloss, bought from TK Maxx (London).

Do you believe in love at first sight? I do! The pink skirt, the one that I bought from New Yorker was, is and will be one of my favorite pieces of clothing from my wardrobe. As soon as I saw it, I felt like the designer read my thoughts and created it especially for me. I saw it on pink and light grey, which I regret even today that I didn’t buy. I knew that it would be difficult to match it with something from my closet, but I thought “I make something up!”

So I integrated it in my daily outfits for a soft look and I chose to wear it with a beige wool sweater (ZARA) and a pair of over the knee beige socks (H&M). In other occasions, I wore it with a black sweater (bought 100 years ago from Kenvelo), black stockings 40 den and black boots.

The main characters of the Lolita style drink tea, look at the carousels or go out on a picnic. For the photo shoot I chose to bring a lollypop, my favorite lip gloss and to go out in the nature just to enjoy the beautiful day.

Therefore, let your imagination go wild and “invent” looks to represent your way out to the big Alter Ego!

15 PASI PENTRU A INVINGE AUTOSABOTAREA

[RO]                                                                                                                                                       [EN]

Autosabotarea reprezinta implicarea in comportamente ce te conduc catre rezultate pe care tu nu ti le doresti. Cei mai norocosi le constientizeaza la timpul potrivit, insa continua sa isi faca rau singuri prin urmare isi taie singur creanga de sub picioare. Dacă iti doresti sa elimini autosabotajul din viata ta, atunci poti sa te pui pe treaba in felul urmator:

#1. Admite ca te autosabotezi! Fii barbata! (Tipatescu via Zoe, “O scrisoare pierduta” de I.L.Caragiale). Acceptarea autosabotarii este primul pas spre vindecare (ca sa fiu radicala).

#2. Constientizeaza si scrie pe o foaie de hartie cum te autosabotezi! Gandeste-te la anul care a trecut si scrie cum anume te-ai limitat singur, in toate aspectele vietii tale: job, viata personala, prieteni, familie, bani etc.

#3. Admite ca esti singurul responsabil pentru gandurile si actiunile tale! Da, oamenii, situatiile in care te afli, un anumit context, o simpla coincidenta iti pot influenta imaginatia, gandurile si, in final, actiunile. Cand vei avea 100% control asupra ratiunii, vei inceta sa mai dai vina pe celelalte persoane pentru esecurile tale.

#4. Intocmeste planul de bataie! Acesta va combate orice incercare de autosabotare pe viitor.

#5. Impartaseste-ti planurile cuiva de incredere! In doi ai mai mult curaj si vei fi motivat fara sa vrei: poate fi un prieten, un membru al familiei, partenerul de viata sau chiar un mentor specializat.

#6. Admite ca schimbarea se face doar cu efort! In fond, este vorba despre tine si despre viata ta!

#7. Crede in tine! Chiar daca acum ti-e greu, cauta metode de a-ti intari increderea in propria persoana!

#8. Promite ca din acest moment incetezi sa te mai autosabotezi! Poti chiar sa scrii pe o hartie aceasta promisiune si sa o semnezi. Va avea un efect extrem de puternic! Esti liber sa iti pui prin casa post-it-uri (via #BeingMaryJane)! Pune-ti memento in fiecare dimineata! Reciteste fraza in pauza de masa! Orice functioneaza pentru tine!

#9. Sarbatoreste-ti eforturile care dau rezultate! Meriti sa sarbatoresti daca ai avut un succes pe acest drum al schimbarii. Si cu cat vei sarbatori mai des, cu atat vei prinde mai mult curaj, iar lucrurile vor fi din ce in ce mai usoare! Tot ce trebuie sa faci este sa fii sincer cu tine insuti! Nu trisa cad oar e in defavoarea ta!

#10. Invata! Citeste orice crezi ca te motiveaza sau te inspira!

#11. Respinge negativismul din orice directie! Fii sigur ca vei mai avea ganduri si emotii negative, insa, cu timpul, vei filtra informatiile si emotiile si vei impiedica “norul negru” ce inainte te apasa asa tare. Cu totii avem acel prieten prapastios care parca nu iese din cenusiul vietii. Nu fi tu acel om! Fii omul care se schimba, care il schimba!

#12. Da-ti voie sa te transformi! Deschide-ti mintea catre noi posibilitati si prinde oportunitatile care te inconjoara. Gandeste diferit!

#13. Gandeste-te si la posibilitatea de a folosi suport profesionist! Daca incepi sa dai inapoi sau esti departe de a-ti gasi singur resursele si puterea, cauta solutii! Poate fi un consilier, un mentor sau chiar o persoana care a trecut cu succes prin asa ceva.

#14. Persevereaza! Este singura metoda care da rezultate. Cu siguranta, daca te opresti vei esua iar startul va fi de 2 ori mai greu.

#15. Reinnoieste-ti promisiunea ori de cate ori simti nevoia!

Stiu ca suna ciudat si pare o lista prea lunga! Insa fiecare pas este gandit si testat pe propria piele. Cu totii am avut, cel putin o data in viata, o pasa proasta in care parca totul parea negru. Parcurgand pas cu pas, vei fi uimit sa constati ca esti din ce in ce mai multumit de tine, vei simți cum lumea din jur se schimba! Pentru ca tu te-ai schimbat!

Self-sabotage is the behavior which leads to bad results you don’t even want. The lucky ones observe them at the right time, but they still engage in the wrong actions, therefore they are bullying themselves. If you wish to eliminate the self-sabotage from your life, you can do the following:

#1. Admit the fact that you are self-sabotaging! Be a man! (Tipatescu via Zoe, “A lost letter” by I.L.Caragiale). Accepting it is the first step towards healing (just to be radical).

#2. Write on a piece of paper the facts! Think about the past year and write the specific actions that you sabotaged: the job, the personal life, friends, family, money and so on.

#3. Admit that you are the sole responsible for your thoughts and your actions! Yes, the other people, a specific situation, a certain context, a coincidence can influence the imagination, the thoughts and the actions. When you’ll control your mind 100%, you’ll stop blaming others for your failures.

#4. Make a plan! This one will beat every wrong turn.

#5. Share with someone you trust! You’ll have more courage, you’ll be much more motivated when you share the plan with someone you trust: a friend, a brother/sister/cousin, the life partner or even a mentor.

#6. Put effort in it! After all, it’s you and your life!

#7. Believe in yourself! Even though it’s hard, search a method to do it!

#8. Promise from this moment on, that you’ll stop bullying yourself! You can even write it on a paper and sign it. It will mark the moment! You can put post-it in your house (via #BeingMaryJane)! Set the alarm every morning! Read it in the lunch break! Whatever works for you!

#9. Celebrate the efforts that pay off! You deserve to celebrate every step of the way in which you have succeeded! If you celebrate it more often, you become motivated even more and the things will get easier. All you have to do is to be honest with yourself! Don’t cheat!

#10. Learn! Read whatever inspires you and keeps you focused!

#11. Reject all forms of negativity! You’ll still think in the wrong way, but, in time, you’ll become positive! Step by step! We all have that one negative friend! Don’t be that one! Be the one who changes him/her!

#12. Go with the flow! Open your mind toward new possibilities and take advantage of the opportunities around you! Think outside the box!

#13. Consider to talk with a specialist! If you start to back off and you don’t have the strength to do it, search a simple solution. It may be a counselor, a mentor or even a person who experienced it before.

#14. Be persistent! It’s the only way. If you stop, you’ll fail and the start will be twice as harder.

#15. Renew your promise every other day!

I know it may sound weird and the list above is too long! But every step of the way is tested. We all had, at least once in a lifetime, a bad day in which everything seemed the worst ever. Taking it step by step, you’ll be amazed to see who you became and you’ll see the world in a different way! Because you’ve changed!
