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)

Cliché.

dasha-5066
The word stuck with me ever since, due to bad weather (as in pouring rain), me and my master photographer Dorel had to change our shooting location to a place I wished I didn’t take pictures at – as in the entire population of this city has taken pictures there.
But all is well when it ends well …and funny – the two of us and many fishermen in the wee hours of a Saturday.
But back to the main course… Most of the things surrounding me lately feel like a cliché – could that please change? It is always such a nice surprise when something new happens, when I meet inspiring people (polite is great too, and also honest), when I read something mind blowing or when a day is calm from morning to night. But these events are like rare breeds, so cliché is just an extremely polite compliment to what actually is going on. On one side I appreciate the great people & moments in my life much more, on the other side, instead of being less disappointed I am disappointed even more.
So the only thing I can do is try to better myself. I rarely succeed, but I am happy to even try. I am pretty restless so patience is probably my weakest point. But maybe, just maybe, one good day, all the hard work (which might seem easy from the outside) might be rewarded. So I’ll keep on trying. And hope for the best.
By the way 1 – I was trying to do something new a few weekends ago, so after 20km of cycling I tried to go uphill with my bike. 100m later and I take a fall – I proudly present my injured knee. Of course I cried and I complained. Even so, it was a great day and I hope to do it soon again.
By the way 2 – I love this dress.
