Fields of Gold

I'm sure many of you are anxious to know how went the first week at the new job. Well... it went great! The new colleagues are really helpful and they are doing their best to make my integration as easy as possible.

In the previous post, someone asked me what is my job... and the answer is, in case there are other persons who don't know yet... an IT project manager. This is what I was until a week ago in a small local company and this is what I am now, but at a much bigger scale, in a multinational corporation. I admit with all the sincerity that I still have many things to learn, but I'm not afraid at all, because this is exactly what I had in mind when applying for the job...

I will be very busy in the coming period, but I will do my best to come here on the blog as often as possible, because it's one of my greatest passions and I haven't given up on growing it more and more... so please... bare with me.

Now... about the canola field... If you would ask me, whether you are a blogger or not, the canola field shooting it's a must! Every photo you take in a canola field has the potential of becoming a work of art and I, for one, wouldn't miss it for the world. And not only because of that, but also because I consider it to be a form of therapy. :)

P.S. A special thanks to my loving husband, who took more then 200 hundred photos of me in the canola field, in order to make me happy. :)
I love you!

Every end is a new beginning...

I was telling you two weeks ago about how I felt happiness and I promised I will get back here and explain the reasons that generated this state... Well... that moment has arrived.

I don't think it's a secret anymore that one of my defining characteristics is AMBITION and that I want to do in this life everything I can to fulfill all the dreams that I have. Another way to do this, than to work as much as I can, I don't know. Therefore, the career I have in the IT domain is and will remain an essential part of my existence.

I love my job and I don't have the slightest doubt that this is what I was meant to do in life.
I spent the last 9 years in a company in which I grew up both literally and figuratively. When I started, I was a confused 22 years old student. Now, I'm a career woman, a wife and a mother of almost 31 years. I grew up professionally from the lowest level and this is something that I'm very proud off and for which I want thank those who gave me the opportunity to become today's Lucia. THANK YOU!

My desire for more became bigger than the company's possibilities and when this desire met with the need of another company to hire someone with my skills... HAPPINESS appeared. If you want to understand better what this change represents for me, professionally speaking... imagine that until now you've worked for a local clothing retailer and from now on you will work for ZARA. The work itself may be mostly the same, but the prospects and the benefits are totally different. It's a new era!

The history of the past nine years and the job changing experience determine me to put down some thoughts, hopefully motivational, for YOU, the people who read me: don't let anyone tell you what you can and can not do in life, be your own evaluators and be severe with yourselves, don't let anyone tell you that you deserve less than you know you deserve, have confidence in yourself, there is no better time than the present time to change your destiny, don't ever be afraid of change, don't stop evolving, never give up on your dreams.

What goes around comes around

Last week I forgot my clutch in the park. I realized I had lost it at approximately 5 minutes after leaving the place and to be honest  I didn't feel panic at all. I had in my bag an iPhone and a Samsung and no other values. Maybe I knew on a certain level that I was going to get them back... And I was right!
I went back to the place I knew I had left the clutch and there was a woman who had found the bag. She was waiting for me to come back and return it. How cool is that?

Maybe, some of my readers who don't live in Romania, will think: so, what's the big deal? Well it seems that it's still a big deal here at us because the possibility to loose something and not get it back is much higher than getting it back.

This event made me realized that little by little things are changing in Romania too and I really want to encourage people to always return what doesn't belong to them, because nowhere on the face of the earth someone's sadness should be someone else's happiness.

One of the guiding principles of my life is what goes around comes around meaning that whatever you will offer to the others, that is what you will receive in return. I intend to keep this guiding principle as long as I live and I recommend you to do the same. ♥

Out of the ordinary with Borealy Jewelry

Îmi place să cred că niciodată nu am fost o fată comună... nici prin aspect şi nici prin gândire...
Cu toate acestea, de când am început blogul simt că am evoluat foarte mult din ambele puncte de vedere: pe de o parte datorită accesului la atât de multe bloguri de stil şi imagine (uitaţi-vă şi voi la blogeriţele românce din fotografiile de mai jos), pe de altă parte datorită interacţiunii cu VOI, cei care mă citiţi, şi care sunteţi mereu avizi de lucruri spectaculoase şi interesante...
Dacă aceste lucruri nu ar fi 100% adevărate, eu nu v-aş scrie azi acest articol despre bijuteriile Borealy.

Este multă muncă în spatele unui blog, dar în momentele când ajung să scriu şi să port lucruri atât de frumoase de la Ray-Ban, de la Zara, de la Borealy... munca devine o plăcere şi îmi dau seama cât de norocoasă sunt eu. Am să vă rog ca niciodată să nu mă invidiaţi, oricare din voi puteţi face acest lucru, nu trebuie decât să vă doriţi cu adevărat. ♥

Bănuiesc că v-aţi dat seama deja ce au în comun toate fetele superbe din imaginile de mai jos... bineînţeles, bijuteriile Borealy. Sunt incredibil de frumoase şi vă spun cu sinceritate că simt fluturi în stomac când mă gândesc că în curând o să am plăcerea să port această minunăţie de colier... nu ştiu de ce, dar când îl văd îmi amintesc de Heart of the Ocean, din Titanic.

Cea mai recentă colecţie de bijuterii Borealy se numeşte Exqusite Dantelle şi o are ca vedetă pe Larisa Costea, o blogeriţă româncă pe care am descoperit-o exact cu această ocazie şi pe care vă recomand să o vizitaţi, exact aşa cum vă recomand să le vizitaţi pe toate fetele din fotografii.

În final vreau să vă mai spun că în magazinul online Borealy nu găsim doar bijuterii, ci şi o gamă variată de cadouri: cadouri pentru femei, cadouri pentru bărbaţi, cadouri de Paşte... şi... ATENŢIE, apropo de Paşte, ştiu din propria experienţă că intru în pană de idei când vine vorba de cadoul pentru naşi, aşa că vă dau un pont: Borealy a pregătit coşurile de Paşte. Sunt foarte variate şi cred că pot constitui o surpriză foarte plăcută pentru părinţii voştri spirituali.

Sper că v-a plăcut articolul meu, aştept părerile voastre, care mă ajută foarte mult să înţeleg ce şi cum gândiţi vis-a-vis de tot ceea ce vă prezint aici pe blog. Promit că revin cu un shooting de excepţie.

Do you know how happiness feels?

Did you ever have a moment in your life when you felt happiness through every fiber of your body? Attention... I'm not talking about joy, I'm talking about HAPPINESS. That moment when you put your hands together, like in prayer, and the only things you feel like doing is look at the sky and thank God.

I felt it on 2nd of April and it was the biggest sensation ever.

You feel a warmth that invades your body, your knees soften, your flesh begins trembling and for a  moment you feel that you are going to faint. But you don't, you enter in a surreal state of float as if you were in another world. You move left, you move right, but you do it mechanicallythe brain can only process the news that you got and which caused this state of bliss. It's unreal, it's spectacular, it's unique.

Currently, I can't tell you what caused this state, but I promise that I will soon. Nonetheless, I will leave you with some clues about it:

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. 
Neale Donald Walsch

A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.

Zara sandals and Legea lui OM

Dresses and skirts ARE NOT MY THING. Nonetheless, I'm very fond of my thin long legs and with all lack of modesty I will try to show them of from once in a while.
On the other hand, stripes ARE MY THING and these you will have the chance to see more often here on the blog.
Finally, the ZARA sandals, ARE A NEW THING and I honestly don't know what kind of thing they will become. I believe we will just have to wait and see.

Dear Romania, ZARA is online for you

Dear Romania,

2nd of April is the official launch day of ZARA online shop in Romania.
Starting this day shopping at ZARA won't be an exclusive experience. Every Romanian citizen will be able to buy ZARA items only by accessing

I had the chance to enjoy a bit earlier the shopping experience at ZARA since I was one of the bloggers chosen to promote their entrance on the Romanian online market. I wanted my first ZARA shopping experience to be memorable, so I decided to pick up two statement pieces: an orange dress and a pair of pointy sandals with ankle strap. At this moment the products are in my hands and I can't describe how excited I am to get to wear them... but all in good time.

Meanwhile, I will leave you with some of my favorite ZARA items at this moment.

Happy shopping,
