How I came to have “Pinterest” hair or A series of unfortunate events


Let me start off by saying that making my hair lighter was not an itch I should’ve scratched. I’ve always had dark brown hair and when I dyed it in the past it was always a shade darker or a dark plum or something like that. And I know that dark hair makes you seem older or whatever, but I was so comfortable with that color – it just felt right to me. It was my Snow-White-ey look: dark hair, fair skin, red lips – good to go. (My sister would call this look “the Morticia Addams”, but I was cool with that as well. I love black, I love the Addams family and Morticia may have looked like a vampire, but she was a classy lady. But I don’t wear eye make-up like she does and my eyebrows are not that arched. So my sister is wrong, ha!). But anyway. I felt the need for a change this year and what I got is so far off from what I actually wanted to look like, it’s scary.

Tommy Girl Tropics

You know how I told you that March is women’s month in Romania, right? Well, this is the month when we’re pampered and spoiled just for being a woman and if we’re not we get to guilt-trip our significant others. Evil, I know, but isn’t evil just another synonym for woman? :)) Continue reading

Well, it sometimes happens that we receive other gifts as well – if we’re lucky. And this year I was lucky enough to receive a delicious-smelling box from Pupa, called Miss Princess.

Well, it has been unofficially here for a week and a half now – spring, I mean – the weather is very nice in Romania, we had temperatures of over 10° C almost every day. But I’m talking about that feeling you get when you know for sure the season has changed, when you can smell spring in the air: the days are longer, you are more energetic and optimistic and ready for new and exciting stuff. That’s how I feel – today, more than ever. Because today is the little holiday we call Mărțisor, on which men give women brooches and trinkets with a red and white string attached – you can see below just what I mean – and the women have to wear these trinkets, or at least the string, throughout the entire month of March. It’s a very old tradition and it signifies the beginning of this beautiful season we call spring. Continue reading

If you know me you also know I’m not the most feminine girl. But I just couldn’t resist when I found this cute-cute-cute Valentine’s Day manicure on Lauren Conrad’s blog! Luckily, I had my latest appointment to get my nails done a week before Valentine’s, so I am more than ready for this holiday (which we don’t even officially celebrate in Romania, but who cares?) – I may not own any red or pink shirts, but look at my lovely, sweet nails! I gotta tell you, it’s my favorite manicure yet!
