ELF(a) si-a inceput misiunea!

Cred ca tocmai am descoperit rolul care mi se potriveste cel mai bine: cel de Elf. Chiar si Radu, in calitate de regizor, mi-a spus ca am fata de Elf. Era un compliment, fireste. Si uite asa imbracata, m-am gandit sa le fac o surpriza copiilor sustinuti de Asociatia Touched Romania. Am simtit o bucurie in tot corpul, din talpi si pana in varful urechilor ascutite, cand le-am vazut mutrisoarele emotionate si vesele, desfacand ditamai cadoul. Asta e spiritul Craciunului.

 

EN: I think I just found the part that suits me best: that of an Elf. Even Radu, as a director, told me I have the face of an Elf. It was a compliment, of course. And so I dressed for the part and decided to surprise the children supported by the Touched Romania Association. I felt joy in my whole body, from my feet to the tips of my pointed ears, when I saw their excited and happy little faces, while wrapping up huge presents. That’s the Christmas spirit.

Tutorial video: Ritualul meu de ingrijire a tenului

Una dintre cele mai frecvente intrebari care mi se pune pe retelele de socializare, ba chiar si in interviurile revistelor glossy, este “Cum iti ingrijesti tenul?”. Asa cum nu petrec nenumarate ore in fata oglinzii sau prin mall-uri pentru alegerea unei tinute, tot la fel nu imi permit sa stau toata ziua prin saloane de cosmetica pentru a beneficia de cine stie ce tratamente minune. Cred ca multe pot functiona, dar nu va pot spune care, caci nu le cunosc deloc. Va marturisesc cat se poate de sincer ca, pana la 33 de ani impliniti, nu mi-am facut niciun tratament facial, invaziv sau non-invaziv, in saloane de cosmetica specializate. Am incercat tratamente pentru corp, masaj, drenaj, parafina, nebunii, dar pentru fata, nu am facut niciun tratament special pana acum, in afara de ingrjirea de acasa. Asadar, astazi am sa va spun care este ritualul meu de ingrijire a tenului, ce creme folosesc, dar si cum aplic o masca de fata hidratanta, o masca pentru ten uscat, care ma ajuta mult in sezonul rece.

O toamna cu chef de viata

Toamna este ziua mea si a unora dintre cele mai bune si vechi prietene ale mele, asa ca intotdeauna mi se pare ca acest sezon are un aer de prospetime. Dupa vara sufocanta vin deodata: o racoare placuta, apusuri senzationale, soarele superb de octombrie si sezonul tricoturilor, paturicilor de lana si a vinului rosu. E ceva tare romantic la acest anotimp, nu poate sa nege nimeni asta!

 

EN: Both mine and some of my best friends birthdays are in fall, so I always feel like this season brings a breath of fresh air. After the suffocating summer we all of the sudden have: a pleasant chilly temperature, sensational sunsets, the beautiful October sun and the perfect season for knitwear, wool blankets and red wine. There’s no denying that there’s something very romantic about this season.

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.
