Traieste o primavara multicolora

Tare mi-as dori sa spun ca astazi, cand pasim in echinoctiul de primavara, vremea este placuta, insorita si calduta. Cum din pacate nu este cazul (inca), m-am gandit sa fac eu primul pas si sa aduc putina inviorare pe blog! Practic, daca primavara nu vine, o aduc eu singura aici, ca se stie ca daca vrei ceva facut bine, trebuie sa-l faci cu mana ta!

 

EN: I really would love to say that today, as we step into the spring equinox, the weather is nice, sunny and warm. But since this sadly (still) isn’t the case, I thought I should make the first step and bring a bit of cheering up to the blog! Basically, if spring isn’t coming by itself, I’ll make sure to bring it here, because we all know that if you want something to be done well, you should do it yourself!

Curatenia de primavara

Declar oficial deschisa Curatenia de Primavara! E momentul acela din an cand te apuci si faci ordine prin casa, prin dulap, prin debara, cand realizezi ca ai multe lucruri in plus, unele dintre ele chiar in stare foarte buna, pe care ai vrea sa le dai cuiva sau, de ce nu, vinde! Si cu ocazia asta hai sa va povestesc experienta familiei noastre cu OLX in ultimii ani, in calitate de vanzatori, dar mai ales de cumparatori.

 

EN: I officially declare that Spring Cleaning season is open! It’s that moment of the year when you start putting your house, closet, pantry in order, when you realize that you own too much stuff, some of which is in good shape, and which you would like to give away or maybe even sell! And on this note, let me tell you about our family’s experience with OLX in the previous years, as sellers, but mostly as buyers.

Hello Shopping

Prietena mea Bianca avea aceasta vorba mereu cand cumpara haine: “Pantofii astia sunt o investitie!”, “Sacoul asta e o investitie, o sa il tot port.” Insa “investitia” presupune acel ceva care, odata cumparat, isi mareste valoarea in timp. Ori hainele, pantofii sau accesoriile (cu exceptia bijuteriilor), cu foarte putine exceptii, nu sunt investitii, sunt simple achizitii. Partea de teorie, descrisa mai sus ii aparine celeilalte prietene, Andreea, care mereu ii dadea aceasta replica Biancai. Sigur, ce nu stia Bianca la vremea respectiva era ca, in ciuda tuturor dovezilor contrare, uneori faci bani chiar si cand cheltuiesti bani: Bonusway.

 

EN: While shopping, my friend Bianca always used to say: “These shoes are an investment!”, “This jacket is an investment, I will wear it often.” But “the investment” means that what you bought will increase its value over time. While clothes, shoes or accessories (except jewelry), with very few exceptions, are not investments, they’re only acquisitions. The theoretical part described above belongs to my other friend, Andreea, who would always give this line to Bianca. Of course, what Bianca didn’t know at that time is that, despite all other evidence, sometimes you can even make money while spending it: Bonusway.

O paturica, o cana de ceai fierbinte si o casa calda – Concurs

Ieri dimineata cand am iesit afara din casa, mi-am dat seama ca mirosea a IARNA. Fix acel mix de miros de lemn ars, de aer rece si ger. Chiar daca erau 8 grade, pentru cateva secunde am simtit ca sta sa ninga si ca iarna a inceput deja cu adevarat. Si pe cat imi plac iarna si zapada, pe atat de mult imi place sa ma intorc intr-o casa in care este cald, cu beculete aprinse si veioze a caror lumina este cat mai mica, unde miroase a scortisoara si a portocale decojite… O casa in care totul e pregatit pentru Craciun.

 

EN: When I left the house yesterday morning, I realized I smelled like WINTER. The smell of burning wood, cold air and freezing weather. Even though we had 8 degrees, for a few seconds I felt like it was about to snow and that winter really has arrived. And as much as I like winter and snow, I really like coming back to a warm home, with Christmas lights, where it smells like cinnamon and peeled oranges… A house where everything is prepared for Christmas.

Inapoi in viitor

Am avut ocazia sa merg de curand in Amsterdam, pentru lansarea noului model de televizoare Phillips OLED 973. Nu sunt genul care sa arunce cu usurinta astfel de cuvinte, insa m-am simtit cu adevarat onorata sa fac parte din acest mic grup de bloggeri, jurnalisti si influenceri din intreaga lume, invitati la evenimentul de lansare.

V for Vintage, editia #19

Imi aduc aminte ca acum mult timp, cand au inceput sa fie organizate targuri vintage in Bucuresti, era o efervescenta si o dorinta incredibila a publicului de a gasi lucruri unice, diferite fata de ale oricarui altcuiva. O dorinta de a fi complet altfel fata de restul, o dorinta care la vremea respectiva a fost indeplinita de o selectie unica de piese la astfel de targuri, dintre care V for Vintage era de departe cel mai bine organizat.

 

EN: I remember that a while ago, when vintage fairs first started to be organized in Bucharest, there was a thrill and an incredible desire of the public to find unique pieces, different than those of anyone else. A desire to be completely different from the rest, a desire which at that time was fulfilled by a unique selection of items from such fairs, among which V for Vintage was by far the best organized.

Ceva ieftin, ceva scump si ceva ce ai deja!

Ca in fiecare toamna, avem o multime de optiuni care vin sa updateze garderoba. Ce alegem? Eu ma trezesc in fiecare sezon rece ca imi cumpar pulovere, pe care le iubesc, insa mi-am dat seama ca pur si simplu nu mai am loc de ele in dulap! In plus, imi plac foarte mult cele pe care le am deja, asa ca este clar ca tot ce trebuie sa fac este o lista clara de ce am nevoie, ca sa nu cad in capcana absolut fireasca a lui “ua, ce frumos e puloverul asta, ma vad maine iesind la brunch in el!”. Am zis ca poate va folositi si voi de aceasta lista si astept sa o impartasiti si pe a voastra cu mine.

 

EN: As usual each Fall, we have tons of options to upgrade our wardrobe. What do we choose? In each cold season I end up buying sweaters, which I love, but I have come to realize that I just don’t have room for them in my closet anymore! And also, I really like those I already own, so it’s clear that I have to do is a clear list of what I need, so I don’t fall in the absolutely natural trap of “wow, this sweater is so beautiful, I really see my self going out for brunch tomorrow in it!”. I thought you might also use this list and I am waiting for you to share yours with me.
