Guess what?

Here comes the sun...

These days I heard many bloggers complaining about the rainy weather. I actually loved this rainy weather... the air was fresh and the temperature was perfect. This gave me the chance to wear this vintage Hugo Boss jacket received as a gift from my mother.
Nonetheless, today I realized that I miss the sun.

Dear Sun,
I'm asking you to shine again and bless me with your warm light. I really want to go to the seaside this weekend.

Rain boots

Rain boots

Today I was involved in a fight... don't worry it wasn't a real fight.
Actually, it was a fight with rain in which I was defeated by far. My feet were soaking wet.
Although I'm not a fan of rain boots {I think they are very unfeminine}I would have appreciated a pair to keep me warm and cozy.
Do you own a pair of such boots? Is it useful?
Which of the above do you like most? My favorite are the polka-dotted ones.

Astăzi am fost implicată într-o luptă ... nu vă faceţi griji, nu a fost o luptă adevărată.
De fapt, a fost o luptă cu ploaia în care am fost învinsă de departe. Picioarele mele s-au udat leoarcă.
Deşi nu sunt o fană a cizmelor de ploaie {cred că sunt foarte nefeminine} mi-ar fi plăcut să am o pereche
confortabilă, care să-mi ţină cald la picioare. 

Voi deţineţi o astfel de pereche de cizme?  Vă sunt utile?
Care din cele de mai sus place cel mai mult? Preferatele mele sunt cele roşii cu buline albe.

Amusement park fun

At this moment there are 2 man in my life. One of them is 1600 km away and I call him husband (Marian) and one of them  is near me every day and I call him son (Adi) {I love them both so much that my life would be senseless without them.}
Moving on... I don't know how are you kids, but Adi is such a ball o energy. I think that if he had to live at the amusement park he wouldn't need any food or water. We go there at least 3 times a week and every time we live it's such a tragedy {cry me a river}.
Today,  me, Adi and sister (Mirela) spent a couple of hours, at the amusement park.
Here are the proofs:

În prezent sunt doi bărbaţi în viaţa mea. Unul dintre ei este la 1600 de km depărtare şi îl numesc soţ (Marian) şi unul dintre ei este alături de mine în fiecare zi şi îl numesc fiu (Adi). {Îi iubesc pe amândoi atât de mult încât viaţa mea nu ar avea sens fără ei.}
Trecând mai departe... Nu ştiu cum sunt copiii vostri, dar Adi are o aşa energie. Cred că, dacă a trebuit să locuiască în parcul de distracţii, el nu ar avea nevoie de mâncare sau apă. Mergem acolo de cel puţin 3 ori pe săptămână, şi de fiecare dată când plecăm, este o aşa tragedie {cry me a river}.
Astăzi, eu, Adi şi sora (Mirela), am petrecut câteva ore, în parcul de distracţii.
Iată şi dovezile:

Animal print

As I mentioned in the previous post I did a little online shopping.
Today, I'm showing you, and outfit with shirt and shoes bought in that shopping session.

I craved for a long time to have an animal print outfit {leopard, cheetah, zebra} and until now I didn't have the chance. I'm especially fond of the shoes which can be a good accent in a multitude of combinations.

I know I'm not a specialist in creating outfits, but I can learn to become one, with some help from the native talent lying beneath and with some help from this fashion blog world, which has so many beautiful things to offer.

Shopping session

Thanks to gal pal Flori, who had a 30% discount voucher, me and a bunch of other girls from work {along with their boyfriends, husbands, sisters...} enjoyed an online shopping session, a week ago, which gladly ended today, when the products arrived.
We were so enthusiastic. It felt almost like we were waiting for Santa.
Seeing the pictures below you can understand why.

The articles from the picture below, belong to me, my husband and my sister.
Very soon I will show some outfits with the pieces that I bought and which I'm very proud of.

1. The main reason why I started this blog is because I have something to say and I want to share it with as many people I can.
2. The second reason is because I have a passion for clothes {I'm sure I can't be called fashion addict, at least not yet}.
3. I started to write in english because it's and international language and everybody knows it. {why talk to 100 people when you can talk to 1000, for example}
4. In fact, I'm from Romania, from a town called Brăila, along The Danube River.
5. When I'm not blogging, I'm a project manager in the IT industry.

Feeling blue

These pictures, taken this morning, don't tell that, but I have a serious cold. It first started with a sour throat and now I'm sneezing continuously and I have a runny nose. I took some medicine, I drank camomile tea with lemon and honey, I ate 3 kiwis {they have a lot of vitamin C, as I read} but I'm still enough sick. This virus is really tough. Hopefully tomorrow I will be better.

For those of you who haven't read my previous posts, the below skirt was a present for my sister's birthday. She was kind enough to let me take these pictures, with me in it. Thanks sis'.

Good news

Today's outfit pictures were made in a hurry, because sister and I were running late to work. Sorry for the poor quality.
Here's a good news... Kazakhstan trip was cancelled.... I'm so happy for my son!
He is still so little and he is so dependent of me.  I'm sure there are going to be opportunities like these in the future...

New beginning

As I mentioned before, this weekend I attended the 10 years high school graduation reunion.

By day, we all returned for a couple of hours behind the school desks and  by night, we all got together to a restaurant where we ate, talked and danced {not necessarily in this order}.

This reunion has given me the chance to rethink the past 10 years in terms of accomplishments.  I'm not modest and I'm saying that there were many of them, few of the most important being my marriage and my son. On the other hand, this introspection has made me realize that in the past years I've become an workaholic, over perfectionist, obsessed of always being in control and super demanding {these are only few that come into my mind}. I'm sure that all the above features aren't flaws but I can't help my self to think: Isn't life to short to be super in all?

My life has made a turn, from this weekend on. I can't tell for now if it's in the right direction.. we will just have to see {after another 10 years} :).

Nonetheless, I have a strong feeling  that it's positive change.
