Nothing special

I'm a big fan of walking and I'm so sorry that over the years I realized that I don't do this activity as often as I would like. There are various reasons ... the lack of time, the family car, our son ... but these can't be a permanent excuse. As proof, last weekend I went for a walk with my husband. It was quite cold, but it was worth it. Nothing compares to a breath of fresh air.

P.S. The hat, the scarf and the sweater are my Reserved purchases during the Black Week

Nice to meet you Dana Rogoz

It's no mystery that a big part of my blog traffic is determined by Dana Rogoz's blog. The comments I leave there, bring me a few dozens of curious readers.
For those who do not know, Dana is a girl who worked very hard, since she was a child and came to be one of the most appreciated celebrities in Romania ... a celebrity in the true sense of the word.
When I heard from the news that she was coming to my hometown in order to promote her latest movie - Ho Ho Ho 2: A family
lottery - I was overjoyed and I said to myself I won't meet again soon with such a chance. And I went. Obviously I didn't go alone but with my sister.
Dana is 10 times more delicate and refined as shown on the blog. She is very natural and has a smile and a vision that betray her
sincerity. It was a great pleasure to meet her and I'm sorry that I couldn't stay longer to talk to her. Thanks for giving me the chance to talk even a few words and take a picture with you.
Hope I will see you again, Dana.

To love a man

Do you know what makes me love a man?
Knowing that I can count on him to pick me up when I'm down, knowing that he supports me in everything I do
knowing that he's a great father, knowing that he's a great cook, knowing that he is a partner in marriage with equal rights and obligations as I am, being romantic from once in a while, being a child once in a while, smelling him and having a chill pass on my spine, not seeing him one day and missing him ...
Well... ladies and gentlemen... this is how I feel about my husband...

P.S. I recently joined the Instagram era... in case you want to check out my posts there, zadinblog is my ID.

Black week

Reserved is one of the brands of clothes and accessories that I like the most. I identify very much with the style that they promote.

I appreciate the attention to details and the impeccability of the finished product. On the other hand, the prices they practice reflect these things and are usually pretty steep.

However, this weekend I noticed that they have two incredible offers.

One is 40% discount to handbags, belts and jewelry and is valid from 16.11.2012 - 20.11.2012 (discount applies to the house, to the label price) and the other involves purchasing a one euro voucher to receive 40% discount on the shopping cart, offer valid from 16.11.2012-26.11 .2012.... I told you they were incredible....

I'm certainly going to take advantage of them and I recommend you to do this also.

It's a girl!!!

 I often get asked if my husband and I are thinking of having another child.

To be honest, most of the times I really don't know what to answer. Both myself and my husband come from families with siblings. He has 3 sisters and I have a sister ... and yes ... it's normal to want for our child a sister or a brother.

However, our experience as parents, so far, has been a bit of a challenge.  

Adi is a very energetic child, stubborn, with a unique personality.  
He took his first steps when he was 10 months old, he gave up his pacifier, rather quickly, at 11 months. He began to sleep at least 8 hours a night, after the age of 2.  He gave up the baby bottle at 2 years and a half. He gave up diapers at almost 3 years... Regarding speaking... that's another story. At three years and two months (that's his age now) he is definitely behind schedule. He has a baggage of words but is he far from being a real talker. That's why we do daily exercises and we take speech therapy sessions. So I'm thinking twice before starting over.

Some of those who read this could tell me that things seem pretty normal ... Perhaps this is the case ... Looking back I realize that we have been through many difficult moments, but we overcame them  and we replaced them with the happy moments spent as a family ...

I wish for my son to know what it means the love for a brother/sister, what it means the support from a brother/sister, what it means to share with a brother/sister. I wish for my son to have someone to talk to when he can't talk to me or his dad, I want him to have someone to lean on when his father and I won't be near him.

And to return to the original question ... The answer is YES ... We will endeavor, with God's help, to give our son a brother or a sister.

P.S. I apologize for misleading you with the title.

I have many obsessions in mind ... but one of the strongest is to have my own business. Yes, I know, I've said it before, but it helps me to repeat it once in a while.
What I want the most is to launch my own collection of clothes and then sell it. I'm sure many of you are already saying that I'm predictable, not very original and the market is
probably saturated in this area ... and I will answer that an affordable clothing line with models in the latest trends can't be a failure.
Of course things are more complicated than that and I'm not getting drunk with cold water ... but in my mind, things are becoming clearer each day ....I only have to make up my mind if I'm willing to take the risk of starting this road.
After all there is the possibility of failure ...

P.S. The coat I'm wearing was designed and sewed by my friend who also did the coat from this post. These are coats I would include in the collection I was telling you above.

Dear Hermina, since you left no email address, I can't contact you.
I will be expecting an email from you on address to enter in their possession.

To iPhone or not to iPhone...

Is having an iPhone today equivalent with being wealthier, with being cooler, with being smarter, with being more fashionable?
Don't answer I already know the answer....
For a few days now, I'm among the users of such a device ... it wasn't an explicit desire to have such a phone, but rather a word in the wind dropped in a key moment ... And I got it. You know what?
I don't feel wealthier, I don't feel cooler, I don't feel smarter nor more fashionable ...
I feel in the spotlight ... But not necessary in a good way.

I'm sure in some countries is commonplace to have an iPhone ... But in our country isn't so. Given that they are quite expensive and require a higher monthly cost, most people can not afford it. In addition, for a simple person is really an unjustifiable expense.

For busy people, working mainly in business, who want to be permanently connected to virtual reality, who need to know wherever and whenever something happens in the world, even while driving, or even at the toilet... is a wonderful gadget. In this context, having an iPhone is almost equivalent to being omniscient and omnipresent ... that means a lot of power and I like it.

Menswear inspiration

These days I'm drawn to the slightly masculine looks.
This attraction is mainly driven by the inexhaustible resource of inspiration called Internet.

This resource revealed last year, about this time, the model of coat that I'm wearing and for which I received several compliments in the previous post. Thank you for your kind words.
The coat still exists on the market and can be found here at a very low price {attention, this is not a sponsored post}.

I personally collaborate very good with a friend of mine who has a creation shop. She implements everything that goes through my mind. She is the one who created the coat starting from the model in the link.

For the record, I rarely buy fall-winter coats from stores. I'm very tall and I have proportionally long arms ... everything I find and I like, is short sleeved on me... so I don't bother anymore and I go directly to my friend to have it done custom.

I wish you all a pleasant November Rain and thank you for reading my thoughts.

P.S. Don't forget about the GIVEAWAY.
