Also From Last Year.

As I mentioned in last week’s post, the blog means the world to me. It brings me to places I have not been before, I experience things I haven’t experienced before. So as promised, I will share a few of those novelties with you.

A thing I have never done before is to wear hats – I disliked hats. Every time I hear the word ‘hat’ I can remember my Mother telling me to wear an awful/ugly/not-matching-anything in my outfit hat (I mean the dreadful kind – the knitted ones that make my head look like a giant mushroom). So I never wore hats, even if it was a snowstorm outside. Also, I never thought I could ever possibly wear hats in the remarkable and respectful way my dear Grandpa was wearing them – I never thought I had it in me. My Grandpa wore hats every time he left his apartment – and not any hats. I think he had a hat for every suit, and coat, and polo and… summer suit (yes guys, summer suits – they existed a while back). I seriously doubt I will ever meet a man better dressed than my Grandpa<3.

So the day came when I was asked by Cosmin and Timea to take pictures with some Lucia M hats (www.luciam.ro). I of course, bravely accepted, although in my head I was already having a panic attack because I cannot wear a hat! I look ridiculous with a hat!!! OMG!!! But then I had to focus on my resolution – try new things, accepts new challenges even if I freak out and better run. So I did. And I still am, a month later, amazed of the result. I love the outfit! These are my absolute favourite pictures – I can’t believe it took me so long to post them.

PS 1: I feel hats are not only just another layer to keep us warm. They are not just an accessory to complete an outfit. While I was wearing a hat I felt taller, stronger, more confident and elegant than in a formal attire. Weird. I will look forward to wearing more hats, maybe I will understand the process better.

PS 2: I still want the black hat Cosmin!!

New Year.

IMG_3579

2014 has passed so quickly even though it is unbelievable to look back because it feels more like a lifetime than a year. I would have never guessed, thought or believed if someone would have told me that all these things would happen to me. Ups and downs, good and bad, problems, solutions, lots of work, new friends, amazing holidays, unexpected joys and some crazy parties! Everything that happened was truly unexpected and completely out of the blue.

I don’t know if I should be scared of 2015 – maybe it will continue in the same insane fashion!! Even so, it probably is the first year I have no list of resolutions, wishes, hopes and dreams I have to fulfil. I just hope everyone will be safe and healthy. It is on us to make ourselves happy, to realise that we have that responsibility towards ourselves so I pray everyone will have the strength to do that.

My focus will be solely on becoming a better me, from all points of view – kinder, more understanding, more generous, more compassionate, more empathic and certainly more forgiving. So the word for 2015 is MORE.

Let it be more!

Happy New Year!!!

Thank you for the pictures Cosmin! ❤ (https://www.facebook.com/memoriescollector?fref=ts)

Master of Disaster.

IMG_7835

Do you have that kind of friend that is super clumsy? The one that enters the room and trips three times till she/he gets to the couch? And I mean a small room, not a ballroom:))

Well that is me – probably I stumble or drop something when I am introduced to someone new. Or I send the right mail to the wrong person. I forget birthdays, I daydream on the streets and I get scared of my own shadow. Even while I was writing this text I dropped a glass of water on my phone.

But that is not the reason why I write this. I have written this weeks blog posts during the weekend, like a good girl. But of course, on Monday, while I was trying to choose which one to post first, I managed to delete both. I have no clue how I managed to do that, I must be extremely talented in the clumsy department.

So, although it may come as a surprise, I never fall wearing heels.

XoXo

What’s Next?

IMG_7955
So 2014 passed away to fast. I feel it was yesterday when I left for my snowboarding trip, but it was January….It was a few hours ago that Spring arrived, but wait….is was 7 months ago! Summer hasn’t even arrived and it’s already Winter. And I have already started looking back in retrospective, even though it is only November. Time is such an awkward concept.
Judging my 2014 story with today’s mind  I am so grateful for the extra wisdom I’ve got, even though I wish some of it… I wouldn’t have had to get, I am so grateful for the new people in my life, for my new and old friendships, for my family and for finally realizing that doesn’t matter what I go through – good or bad, I am never alone. For the first time in my life, when something bad happened to me I could see how amazing things were just a few steps away – it is pretty much as they say – one step back, two steps forward (ok, ok, I know it is the other way around, but it seams it does not apply to me that way lol).
I have big plans ahead, and I have never been more determined that I am today. I will achieve them all in my own personal way. So, move over negative stuff, ‘cuz I am about to kick your ass.

Vogue.

So, as I mentioned in the previous post, life is so unexpected and has so many twists and turns, that I am often shocked and have no clue how I got to a certain situation.
Like this one.
Here comes a new week, with a brand new, unexpected, amazing, never-hoped-for news – a picture by Cosmin Micoara has appeared on the online version of Vogue Italia. It is great that his work is appreciated, chosen and posted online on such a prestigious site. BUT the most unbelievable thing is that… I am in the picture!!!! So I have no words to express the shock, euphoria, joy, happiness and pride that took over me. Pretty much it is the best news ever!!
And if you don’t know me, let me tell you I am a Vogue junkie – I collect Italian and French issues for years, I am amazed by their artful content every time and I certainly don’t let anyone borrow them (obsessed a bit). So thank you so much Cosmin!!! Chapeau maestro!!!!  To many more accomplishments to come.
