Happy nails

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I’ve developed a passion for unique manicures and that I have a nail artist who supports my madness. If you don’t, you can read the story here. Our romance is still ongoing, though I haven’t really had time to post my latest designs because, well, I haven’t really had time to post anything else either. I mostly blame it on binge-watching Twin Peaks, but I also had some personal matters to take care of as well, so I haven’t procrastinated as much as you think.

I think I’m now at my fifth manicure since the last one I posted, but I will walk you only through 4, because my latest manicure is so special that I want to dedicate an entire post to it. You can see all my 4 manicures after the jump!  (click on read more)Read More »

Spring is here!

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.Read More »

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!

Gone mint-crazy

I’ve never had a favorite color, not really, not like most people do. If you ask my friend Teo what her favorite color is the answer will definitely be green. If you asked her 5, 10, 15 years ago, the answer would’ve been, I’m sure, the same. I, for one, have never known the answer to this question. I could always tell you what colors I don’t like, but these, as well, changed as time went by. In my old age (just kidding, I have never been younger! 🙂 ) I can say that I don’t really dislike colors anymore – because it’s not nice to discriminate, you guys! 🙂 –  but let’s just say that I enjoy some color combinations more than I do others.Read More »
