Blooming trees in Central Park

Hello people of the internet! Let's start this week right with a trip to the magical Central Park. The first time I saw Central Park, December last year, I loved, loved it but I wanted to see it again in spring when nature would come back to life. Wish granted because I visited New York again 2 months ago and got to see the cherry trees and magnolias in full bloom.
I know that judging by my facial expression I don't seem too happy, but believe me I was in awe at the sight of the magnificent view. You shouldn't miss Central Park in the Spring.

Top of the Rock

One of the things I didn't get to do in New York the first time I visited it was to go to Top of the Rock and see the magnificent skyline. Luckily, I visited New York for the second time last month and I got to cross this off my list among other fun activities that I will share with you in my coming posts.

So, if you want to have the best view of New York's skyline, Top of the Rock is the number one choice. If you have the chance to go at sunset it's even better because the view it's breathtaking. 
You don't have to take my word for it, just take a look at the pictures below. The only downside of the visit was the incredibly strong wind. It was no surprise though considering we went all the way up to the 67th floor and it was March. My advice if you plan on visiting is to buy your tickets online for Top of the Rock to skip the queues. The ticket is $30 for adults and it's totally worth it.

Colorful spring

Happy Friday! As you can see, my color turned into a silverish/bluish/yellowish color. The blue washed off in the most peculiar way. I was not expecting this. 

Judging by my previous post, you would think that I would be happy now. Well, no. 
I've had my natural hair color for almost 28 years and "it grew on me" (pun intended). I was sad, I felt like I was someone else with blue/silver hair so I changed my hair color yesterday and now it's almost back to normal. 

My mom will say "I told you so!"and I admit that it wasn't necessary to bleach and dye my hair twice in a month to realize that "I am attached to my hair" (pun intended again). Sometimes you don't know what you got until it's gone. I just hope my hair will not be completely damaged after this experience. 
Is it too late now to say sorry?

Chelsea, New York

These are the last pictures I wanted to share with you from my New York trip. Most of the pictures below were taken in the Chelsea neighborhood when Sandra and I visited the Chelsea market. There were plenty of chic boutiques inside and although tempting, I didn't go on a shopping spree. I only bought a perfume bottle with pump. I always wanted one of those. 

I remembered I promised you to tell you about my evening on Broadway. I was a fan of the Phantom of the Opera for the longest time. I only saw videos on YouTube from various performances and the Phantom of the Opera 2004 movie. I knew all the lyrics to the songs and when I heard that the show is coming to Bucharest last year I was so excited I couldn't sleep.
I was very disappointed though when I found out it's going to be translated for the Romanian audience. No offence to my fellow Romanians and the amazing cast that played at the National Theatre of Operetta"Ion Dacian", but I din't feel like buying tickets afterwards. 

I decided to wait and see the Phantom of the Opera live for the first time the way I always pictured it in my head, in English. The opportunity arose when I was in New York three months ago, I immediately jumped at the chance and it was one of the best experiences of my life. I was blown away by how perfect everything was. The cast was brilliant, the costumes were amazing and I wouldn't mind if I had to watch it a million times. I highly recommend it.

Oversized denim jacket

Don't worry, you landed on the correct page. Yes, my hair is blue. "Why"you might ask. I asked myself the same question. You probably know that I was pretty conservative when it came to my hairstyle all these years that I have been blogging. I never dyed my hair and I rarely changed haircuts. So to dye my hair blue is very bold and unusual for me, correct? 

Well, the story behind this is that I never wanted this color. All I wanted was to cover my grey hair that was becoming more and more of an issue to me. I also wanted to boost my morale after being sick/in pain for the whole month of January. Easier said than done apparently because I went to a salon asking for a dark grey hair color and I ended up with blue hair. After 6 hours of being bored out of my mind at the salon (really, I don't know how women stand this) after 2 failed attempts to get my hair dark grey, I gave up and went home.

It's funny because I was really expecting "granny hair, but I got "my little pony hair" instead.
But what has been working out for me lately anyway?
