Thinking of Spring

 It is -10 C here, and I am really not into getting out of the house, but I have to. I really loved the light here in these pictures, it looked warm, like an early summer sun.  
The pictures were taken a few days ago when it wasn't that cold outside, because today I would be dead by now if I would go out dressed like this.
So I as got tons of work to do, and I really have to get out of the house, I will add 4 layers of clothing, a furry jacket, the ugly but yet cozy UGG boots and a warm scarf. Then heat up the car, play some music and pretend I am going on a trip to  the beach!
If you can't beat the cold , ignore it.
This is weapon.
What's yours?



Sunt -10 grade afara, si chiar nu am chef de ieist afara, dar trebuie.
Mi-a placut mult lumina din aceste fotografii, pare calda, ca un soare de primavara tarzie.
Fotografiile au fost facute acum cateva zile , cand nu era chiar asa frig , pentru ca daca as fi ieist azi imbracata asa , sigur eram moarta de mult.
Si cum am o tona de  treaba de terminat si rezolvat, si trebuie sa ies din casa, voi imbraca 4 straturi de haine, o jacheta imblanita, cele mai urate dar si calduroase cizme UGG si un fular calduros. Apoi dau caldura maxima in masina, muzica buna si voi pretinde ca merg intr-o excursie spre plaja!
Daca nu pot combate frigul, ignora-l!
Aceasta este arma mea.
A ta care e?

New Face Cream

 As I really needed a moisturizing cream today because my last one was empty, I got one at the first glance from a local drug store.
I had to pick between the Nivea Oxygen night cream and Aslavital moisturizing cream with clay, because all the others seem not appropriate for my skin condition. 
Even if I have mixt skin, it really need moisture, especially in the winter, so I really wanted a thick, moisturizing cream. finally I picked the Aslavital cream, that was around 6 euros, nivea was a bit more cheaper.
Anyway I am very curious on how this cream will work for me, and I will keep you posted.
What is your favorite face cream?


 Cum aveam nevoie disperata de o crema hidratanta deoarece cea veche era goala de azi dimineata si nu stiam exact ce sa imi iau, mi-am cumparat azi una de la o farmacie din zona.
Aveam de ales intre Nivea Oxygen crema de noapte si Aslavital cream hidratanta cu argila, pentru ca toate celelalte nu pareau potrivite pentru tenul meu. 
Chiar daca am tenul mixt, el trebuie hidratat bine mai ales iarna, asa ca vroiam o crema chiar grasa, dar potrivita tenului meu.
In final am ales crema hidratanta de ala Aslavital, care a costat aproximativ 24 de lei, nivera totusi putin mai ieftina.
Oricum, sunt foarte curioasa daca ma va ajuta aceasta crema si va voi tine la curent cu impresii pe parcurs.
Ce crema de fata preferati voi?

Portuguese Tarts-Jamie Oliver

 As I told you a few days before, I can't stop watching Jamie Oliver's recipies. 
So I decided to try a recipe I saw one one of his episodes of  Jamie's 30 Minute Meals. You can see the clip here
What you need:
 pastry dough, that you can find at any supermaket
cinnamon powder
a muffin  tray
For the filling:
1 egg
1 t-spoon of  sugar
zest of half of orange
200 gr sour cream

First of all, take your pastry dough, roll it, not very thin, about 05.-1 cm thick, and on one side   powder with cinnamon. Use your palms to even the powder all over the dough.



 Dupa cum spuneam acum cateva zile, nu ma oprii din vizionarea episoadelor cu retetele lui Jamie Oliver.
 Astfel intr-o zi am decis sa incerc o reteta vazut intr-unul din episoadele Jamie's 30 Minute Meals.

Puteti vedea clipul aici.
Ce aveti nevoie:
aluat foietaj, se gaseste aproape in orice supermarket
scortisoara pudra
o tava pentru briose
Pentru umplutura:
un ou
o lingurita de zahar
200 gr de smantana

Prima data, luati aluatul, si il intindeti bine, dar nu mai subtire de 0.5- 1 cm, si pudrati pe o parte cu scortisoara. Cu palma intindeti uniform pudra pe toata suprafata dupa care rulati pe o lungime.



Roll it up, and cut it in small chunks of 3-4 cm. 

Rulati si taiat aluatul in bucati de 3-4 cm.




Then take them one at a time , withthe little spiral facing up, and push them down into a small disc.
Prepare the tray, and pre-heat the oven.

Luati fiecare bucata, intoarceti-o cu spirala formata in sus, dupa acre apasati pana se formeaza un disc.
Pregatiti tava si incalziti cuptorul.



Take each disc and put it inside the tray's hole, and drag the margins up to the top, just like wrapping the hole in  pastry.
Do that for all of them, and put them in the oven.

Ia fiecare disc in parte , incercand sa il modelezi sub forma unei cupe, de marimea gaurilor din tava.
Puneti toate cupele formate in tava si bagati la cuptor.



 Meanwhile prepare the filling.
Take the egg, a t-spoon of sugar and the sour cream, mix them together. Add some orange zest and put aside.
Intre timp preparati  crema.
Luati oul, o lingurita de zahar si smantana si amestecati-le bine. pentru un plus de aroma, adaugati coaja de portocala rasa.

After, 15 min, take the tarts out and fill them with up. Then put them in the oven again for another 10 min.

Dupa 15 min, scoateti tartele si umpleti-le cu crema facuta mai devreme.Dupa care revin din nou in cuptor pentru inca 10 min.


Take a pot, some sugar and the orange you got left.
Melt the sugar, add the orange juice and make a caramel.
Pour it while hot on the tarts when they are ready.

Luati o oala,cateva linguri de zahar si o portocala.
Topiti zaharul si adaugati sucul proaspat stors , tine-ti pe foc pana se face caramel.
Turnati siropul cat e fierbinte pe tartele scoase din cuptor.



Fast and tasty! Enjoy.

Rapid si delicios!Pofta buna.

Cupcake Party


 I know I promised yesterday that I would post the surprise, but after the party I was too tired to get the photos and publish them, and I appologize.
So here  are some snapshots from the little cupcake party I hosted yesterday. I also made some special pizza varieties that I  think turned out great.
Colorful cupcakes of different flavours, and yes I don't remember which is which, so it was  like take you luck on and see what it is filled with. Hopefully no one got hurt:P
Good music, giggles, laughter , hot teas and coffees.
I really enjoyed myself, hope that you all did too.
Thank you very much for coming!


Stiu ca am promis ieri ca voi posta surpriza, dar dupa petrecere nu am mai reusit sa scot fotografiile si sa le public pentru ca eram prea obosita, si  imi ecr scuze.
Mai jos sunt cateva instantanee facute aseara la mica petrecere cu prajiturele pe care am gazduit-o.
Pe langa dulciuri, am facut si cateva varietati mai speciale de pizza, care se pare ca au si iesit foarte bine.
Prajiturele colorate de diferite arome, si da, nu mai tin minte care ce aroma are si cu ce sunt umplute asa ca a fost un fel de roata norocului la alegerea lor. Cred ca nimeni nu a fost ranit in urma alegerii:P
Muzica buna, chicoteli, rasete, ceaiuri calde si cafea.
Eu m-am simtit foarte bine, sper ca si voi.
Multumesc foarte frumos ca ati venit!

A Healthy Lifestyle - VERA WANG

 Adopting a healthy lifestyle is just an act of self-respect. Many girl that do not feed themselves, take on drastic diets do that just to look good, but looking good on the outside is not always healthy. You go on a diet, after talking to a specialist because you need to, it is for better for your health. I am referring here to people who have a severe weight problem, and the fat cam affect the organs around it making them work slower. So having a smart diet is not a bad idea.
You think of eating vegies, fruits and low fat products on a regular basis is boring, frustrating? Well think of this as an investment in your future.
Feeling and looking younger, having more energy and love of life when you get older.
Working out is also a part of what your daily routine should consist of, but if you don't have the time everyday, you can walk to work, or have a sports day in the weekend. The more you workout the  better you will feel, trust me, you would do yourself a favour.
I try to keep a healthy lifestyle because it makes me feel better for straters, but I also know it is great in the long run. As I said before, I am a veggetarian, but I also eat dairy products, and sometimes fish because it is very healthy.I try to workout as often as I can, more in the summer, less in the winter because the cold weather just slows me down. I also enjoy a delicious raw meal, with fruits and vegetables, they give me energy.
And yes, I have to state the reason I felt like writing this. I saw several pictures of fashion designer Vera Wang in a swimsuit, WOW, and yes she is 62!
Can you believe that? Because she keeps a low profile in what her personal life is ocncerned, I bet she eats only healthy food and works out on a regular basis. She also was a figure skater , just look at her legs! Many 15 year old girls don't look anything like her.
I think you should think this over a bit and maybe you too deserve to pay more respect to your life, your body and also soul.
Don't you agrre?

Adoptarea unui regim de viata sanatos este in primul rand o dovada de respect fata de sine. Multe fete se infometeaza, urmeaza diete stricte, nepotrivite, doar pentru a arata foarte bine, ceea ce nu este tot timpul mai sanatos. Urmezi o dieta, dupa indicatiile unui specialist , pentru ca trebuie sa o faci, e mai bine pentru starea ta de sanatate. Aici am refer la persoanele cu probleme mari de greutate, a caror organe vitale pot fi afectate de grasimea care le apasa si le impiedica sa functioneze cum trebuie. Deci a urma o dieta potrivita nu este deloc o idee rea.
Te gandesti ca mancatul de legume, fructe si produse sarace in grasime in mod regulat este plictisitor, frustrant? Gandeste-te ca e o investitie in viitorul tau.
Sa te simti mai bine, mai plin de viata, mai tanar cand deja ai ajuns la o varsta mai inaintata.
Exercitiile fizice de asemenea ar trebuii  sa faca parte din rutina zilnica, dar daca nu ai timp zilnic, poti merge pe jos la lucru sau sa planific o zi de sport la sfarsit de saptamana. Cu cat faci mai mult sport, cu atat te vei simtii mai bine, crede-ma ca iti vei face tie o favoare imensa.
Eu incerc sa imi mentin un stil de viata sanatos pentru ca in primul rand ma simt eu mai bine, dar si pentru ca va avea efecte pozitive pe termen lung. Dupa cum am mai zis, eu sunt vegetariana(lacto-ovo-vegetariana), dar mananc si produse lactate sau peste din cand in cand pentru ca este foarte sanatos. Incerc sa fac sport regulat, mai  mult vara, mai putin iarna deoarece frigul ma incetineste si nu ma pot mobiliza, sunt friguroasa si as racii repede. De multe ori savurez si cate o masa raw, plina cu fructe si legume proaspete, care imi si dau multa energie.
Ah, si sa va spun motivul care m-a determinat sa scriu aceasta postare. Am vazut cateva fotografii recente cu designerul Vera Wang in costum de baie, WOW, si are 62 de ani!
Iti vine sa crezi? Pentru ca isi tine viata personala departe de ochii lumii, nu se stiu prea multe detalii despre stilul ei de viata, dar fac pariu ca mananca sanatos si face miscare regulat. I tinerete a fost patinatoare, uite ce bine ii arata picioarele. Multe fete de 15 ani nu arata la fel de bine ca ea.
Eu cred ca ar trebui sa te mai gandesti putin si poate ajungi la concluzia ca se merita sa iti respecti viata, corpul si sufletul mult mai mult ca pana acum.
Nu esti de acord?

Knitwear from NEXT


These are some of the best items you can invest in.. A knitted short sleeve blouse can be worn almost all year around. 
In spring with jeans, a skirt and boots, you can even take it with you in summer, just in case the evening  would be breezy. In autumn with a fancy vest over it and during cold winter days, wear it under a thick coat.
Layering , mixing and matching have endless posibilities, so I must say it is an  item you definetly should have.
act now while the sales are in. You might just find the perfect knit for half the price!
I got my favorite, Which is yours?


Tricotajele sunt printre cele mai versatile obiecte vestimentare in care merita sa investesti.
O bluza tricotata , cu maneca scurta te poate salva in multe situatii pe tot parcursul anului.
Primavara asortata la blugi sau o fusta si cizme, Vara o poti lua cu tine , in cazul in care seara va fi mai frig. Toamna purtata cu o vesta interesanta peste, iarna sub un palton calduros. Sunt posibilitati interminabile pentru a asorta tricotajele, astfel eu le consider ca fiind piese cheie in garderoba oricui. 
De ce sa nu actionezi aucm cat timp sunt reduceri? Poate iti gasesti puloverul perfect chiar la jumatate de pret.
Eu mi-am gasit favoritul.
Tu nu?

DIY Chain Cardigan

 Here is a simple trick to renew your wardrobe. Easy to do, even if you are not that  familiar with sowing.
You need, a simple cardigan, sweater, or even a jacket if you like. 
Some thread matching the color of the  cardigan; you can also use transparent thread too,a sowing needle and some chain. you should measure how much you need, before buying. 
I haven't so, I will buy more to add to the sleeves end too.
I chose a dark grey metallic chain, but you can pick any color or size, you can even add 2-3 strands of chain.
You start at one end, and try to keep the same pace taking into accound the edge of the fabric, it should be even. 
You should make a loop over each chain link so that it would stay on pretty good.
And it is just as simple as that.
Here is a before and an after picture. 
How do you like it?
Simple enough?



V-am pregatit un mic proiect prin care va puteti reinnoi garderoba rapid si cu investitie minima si nici nu trebuie sa fiti foarte familiarizati cu cusutul.
aveti nevoie de un cardigan simplu,sacou sau orice jacheta pe care vreti sa aplicati lant.
O ata in culoarea cardiganului sau puteti folosi chiar ata transparenta, un ac de cusut mai mare si lant. Inainte sa cumparati lantul, ar  trebui sa masurati cati metrii va trebuie. Eu nu am facut asa, si va trebuii sa mai cumpar pentru a aplicat jos la maneca.
Eu am ales un lant metalic destul de lat, de culoare gri inchis. Alegeti orice nuanta si latime de lant doriti, puteti chiar pune 2-3 randuri de lant.
Incepeti la un capat,  tinand seama de marginea materialului care trebuie sa fie cat de cat constanta ca latime.
Ca sa tina bine si sa nu existe surprize mai tarziu, coaseti peste fiecare veriga a lantului.
Nu dureaza foarte mult , iar rezultatul este spectaculos.
Am atasat cateva cadre cu cardiganul simplu si dupa aplicarea lantului.
Va place? E destul de simplu?
