Bride to be

4 days left and I didn't turn into a Bridezilla...yet. I am too chill and that worries me. What if this is the calm before the storm? What if I go nuts just before I walk down the aisle? As long as I don't pull a Julia Roberts on him we should be good. Truth to be told, you can avoid unnecessary causes of stress when you plan a wedding. All you have to do is be true to yourself and to not do things that you are not comfortable with or you not relate to. I saw a lot of young couples that tried to please everyone else around them and they forgot themselves in the process. Yes, your parents and friends will try to tell you what food you should add to your menu, who you should invite, or what playlist you should have on your wedding day, but don't forget that you can't simply redo the wedding if you realize that it didn't even feel like it was your wedding you went to. Who are these people? Do I know them? What is that awful music playing?
Stay strong fellow brides to be. May the force (and the good weather) be with you.

Pastel coat

Long time no see. Been a few busy months. I got married, moved to a new apartment and decorated my new home. Don't worry, I didn't elope. There will be pictures from my wedding. I only got married at the city hall on March 17th because it was the anniversary of when we first met three years ago. The wedding party will be this July and I will share tons of pictures of course.
The final countdown has begun and I still have a lot of things to take care of until our big day. 
So, before I freak out and start hyperventilating, let me show you some pictures I took last month while I was visiting a beautiful city, Iasi. Below you ca see pictures of the gorgeous, breathtaking, Palace of Culture that was built almost a century ago. 
I was wearing my pastel coat I bought online at H&M (hooray for the launch of the Romanian online shopping page) and my first pair of stiletto shoes. I always thought it would be uncomfortable to wear such shoes, but turns out they are comfy and super stylish. I bought since then another pair. 
Got to run now, guys! Enjoy your weekend.

C&A Spring 2015 collection

Hello! With everything going on in my life lately, I didn't really find the time to blog. A couple of weeks ago, something frivolous like buying a foundation that is a little darker for my skin tone would have been enough to upset me a little, but in light of a recent tragic event, I have realized that getting upset over things that aren't worth getting upset about is ridiculous.
The greatest blessing in life is family and you should treasure the moments you spend together with your loved ones because everything could change in the blink of an eye.
Before we all get teary-eyed, I want to share these pictures I took at the C&A Spring 2015 collection launch event. I like how the collection has a very relaxed mood and there were many items that I would see myself wearing at a music festival or a picnic this spring. 
I especially loved the flower arrangements at the event. My grandmother had a soft spot for flowers too. I hope you are surrounded by flowers up there, grandma.

Parka coat

Hello! I know it's been while, but I have been super busy looking for a wedding dress and planning an office party. So, I am very excited to announce that I have said yes to the dress. I was very lucky that it only took me 1 week and a half to find "the dress". After the first couple of days of trying on many dresses I thought that I was going to end up wearing a white sheet with a belt around the waist on my wedding day. That's how discouraged I felt in the begging. All of the dresses that were displayed in the bridal shops were either too shiny or had too much going on. Bows, rhinestones, ruffles, cleavage, volume, so much volume! Does everyone want to look like Cinderella? All I wanted was a beautiful dress that was simple, yet impressive. Mission accomplished! 

A piece of advice for future brides. Be prepared to look around a lot and have nervous breakdowns. The key is to not lose hope and know that the perfect dress for you is out there somewhere. It's a lot like dating if you think about it. You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince.

Serbia

Hi! I was reading this article on CNN the other day and realized that I didn't share the pictures I took this summer while traveling to Serbia with you yet. You know what they say. Better late than never. I stayed in Belgrade, the capital city of Serbia and the largest city in this country and I was very impressed with what this city has to offer. There are many ways for a tourist to enjoy his stay in Belgrade like visiting the Church of Saint Sava, the Nikola Tesla museum, the Victor/ Pobednik monument located in the Belgrade fortress, the museum of Yugoslav history and when you are done visiting these points of interest you can relax by talking a stroll in the Kalemegdan park or in the charming downtown. 
Enjoy the pictures!
