What others think of you is none of your business

EN:

Caring about other people’s opinions is the biggest obstacle to your happiness, and the thing that will constantly draw you back and keep you from progressing in life. And why is that?

Glad you asked.

So many people these days, especially teenagers and young adults, tend to suppress their desires and even their true personalities because they fear of what other people would think about their actions. “What will my mom say?”, “What will grandpa say?”, “How will my classmates feel about me doing that?”. All of these are frequent and seemingly harmless obstacles, small thoughts which make you question your most genuine wishes and sometimes determine you to give up on some things, ideas or even precious passions of yours, because you are worried that your definition of “right” does not correspond to theirs.

Something about friends

EN:

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn

It is extremely unfortunate that so many people with huge potential are wasting their time and capabilities because they allow the wrong “friends” to influence them. And it is not necessarily about the fact that your closest friends have a big impact on your behavior, which is also true, but it is more about the people you choose to spend your time with, choice which tells a lot about your personality, expectations and perception of life.  Continue reading

BEST OF 2016

EN:

2016 has been a significant year for my blog, first of all because I have started working harder on it, but most importantly, I have gathered the courage to make it public, after two years of anonymous existence. And the support that I have received from all of you has helped me a lot and has motivated me to keep doing what I love, which is fashion, photography and writing, everything that I am displaying right here, on CHANEL  NO. A.

Here are some of the most important moments from 2016:

RO:

Anul 2016 a fost un an foarte important pentru blogul meu, deoarece este anul în care mi-am făcut curajul să îl fac public, după doi ani în care nimeni nu a știut despre el, iar susținerea și aprecierile pe care le-am primit m-au motivat să continui să fac acest lucru, iar în 2017 plănuiesc să muncesc de 10 ori mai mult decât am făcut-o până acum.

Urmează câteva dintre cele mai importante momente din 2016: Continue reading

Thoughts first, outfit at the end of the post.

Lately I have been going through a pretty rough phase and I have lost my motivation almost completely, for a short period  of time. But now I have been working on regaining it, and I have started to think about this subject a lot, read articles and watch YouTube videos, and I have realized that too many people around me are only reacting to their lives, to the things that happen to them, instead of making things happen for them, because they have lost their motivation, and I find this extremely disappointing.

SOMETHING ABOUT DREAMS

Hi, everyone! This is my blog. It’s been here since 2014, but I haven’t had the courage to share it. Until now. That is why this post, about my experience at GLAMOUR Street Fashion Show, will be in Romanian, for all my Romanian friends and acquaintances, who will now – hopefully – become the majority of my audience. I will translate the main ideas of this article at the end of the post. Until there: I WON SECOND PLACE! Thank you all so much for your votes and for your support!

În ziua în care am văzut anunțul pentru cea de-a treia ediție GLAMOUR Street Fashion Show pe pagina de Facebook GLAMOUR Romania, am dat click imediat pe link-ul care m-a trimis la pagina cu detaliile despre concurs. Am aruncat o privire rapidă peste trendurile propuse pentru ținuta de concurs și imediat am știut ce voi alege: accente masculine (voi fi sinceră, nu am ales acest trend pentru că am simțit că mi se va potrivi cel mai bine sau pentru că așa mi-a dictat inspirația de moment, ci pentru că era cam singura categorie care se potrivea cu garderoba mea).

În ce a constat concursul, pe scurt: fiecare participantă a trebuit să își aleagă o ținută în conformitate cu unul dintre trendurile toamnă-iarnă prezentate pe site-ul revistei GLAMOUR, și să trimită poze cu ea purtând acea ținută uneia dintre cele 11 ambasadoare GLAMOUR, listate aici. Ambasadoarele au ales 10 fete pentru echipa fiecăreia, iar pozele noastre au fost publicate pe platforma de concurs. Publicul ne-a votat cu note de la 1 la 10 timp de câteva săptămâni, iar media acestor voturi a contat în proporție de 50% pentru nota finală, restul de 50% depinzând de un juriu de specialitate, pe baza ținutelor din seara evenimentului.

SUMMERTIME SADNESS

_dsc7179

I have always been the type of person who loved rainy days. Don’t get me wrong, nothing motivates me and energizes me more than looking at the blue sky on a sunny day, but the smell of the air after the rain and hiding under a blanket with a cup of tea or hot chocolate… priceless. That’s why my absolutely favorite season is, without any hesitation, fall.

I am in love with fall fashion, maybe because I have always had this weird thing – and I hope I’m not the only one – for getting all covered up and cozy; it makes me feel safe. When I was little and there was a storm outside, I would go and sit in the corner of my room, between the bed and the wall, with one of my toys, both of us covered in a blanket, and not only would I feel protected, but I would also feel comfortable and happy. Therefore, the simple action of switching from tank tops to fluffy sweaters, from sandals to boots and from cardigans to coats, to me, is the equivalent of opening a Christmas present.

HOME

DSC_0072

They say “home is where the heart is”. For me, home is the place where I grew up, because only there I feel like myself, I feel happy and motivated to develop myself, because there are too many distractions anywhere else. There is no place where I feel better than at home, surrounded by everything that, until a while ago, I have completely forgotten to love – the mountains, the forest, the wild flowers. To me, my hometown is the most beautiful place on Earth.
