Christmas preps

One of my weekend’s goal was to find beautiful Christmas tree decorations. For the past five years I kept using the same decorations, with few upgrades. The colors were red and gold and my Christmas tree was looking like this: and this: Pretty much the same every year… so I decided to make a change…

Monday song #98

This week will be short! Basically, as the song says: And we got three more days ’til Friday Thursday and Friday are bank holidays in Romania and we get two days off work. They are very welcomed, given that the Christmas holidays are coming and there are so many things to do, so many people…

Thought of the day #2

Probabil multi dintre voi v-ati cumparat ceva de Black Friday, fie pentru ca aveati o necesitate, fie din “nevoia de a cumpara”. Recunosc, si eu mi-am comandat niste carti la preturi foarte bune. Unele sunt de dezvoltare personala si altele chick-lit. Abia astept sa soseasca!!! As mai fi vrut sa cumpar multe alte lucruri de…

Learning from teenagers

As I previously told you, this year I resumed my reading habits. And one of the first books read was Girl Boss by Sophia Amoruso. Among many pragmatical and true thinks she wrote in her book, I keep remembering the following one: I am surprised by the youth culture. I love knowing everything – what they are…

Monday song #97

Today I felt like these guys nicely sing about: Wolves in the woods Don’t play by the rules From mouth to ear Anything’s possible And because there’s nothing much to be done, I listen to their advice: Help yourself to what you want Get caught by the wind Believing you can fly Celebrate everything There…

Monday song #96

No more comfort zone … let’s Monday and make the most of it! Enjoy!

Thought of the day #1

This year I’ve resumed the reading habit. Actually, I felt the need to read. I was spending too much time on work related reads (taxation stuff – boring, I know) and I was missing out on so many good books and authors. I started shy with a coloring book, a book of maps and a visit…

Monday song #95

These guys look and sound a bit Vikingish! And until the new season of Vikings begins, lets enjoy some good music! “Far away from the bridges that they build We are chasing what is real”

Hygge, hyggelig moments

It’s been a while since I’ve heard about this Danish concept of finding happiness and leaving your life at peace, however I did not looked into it that much. But last evening I was in a bookstore with a friend and found this book “The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Way to Live Well”…

Mai exista si oameni civilizati si intelegatori

Astazi mi s-a intamplat ceva “ciudat de civilizat”. Eu de regula ma duc cu masina la birou, si bineinteles, ca mai peste tot in Bucuresti, este destul de dificil sa gasesti un loc de parcare ok. Astazi de dimineata eram in intarziere si nu prea aveam timp sa caut loc de parcare asa ca am…

Monday song #94

I loved this song from the first time I listened to it. It only had the audio version and it somehow resonated with my emotional state I was in. It was one of those periods of my life when I re-realized how fragile we are and that nothing is under our control (even though our…

Despre Belșug…

Cuvantul Belșug, pe langa faptul ca suna ciudat*, are pentru o mine o rezonanta aparte de cativa ani, de la cununia civila. A fost o zi minunata de altfel, o zi de august pe care o planificasem cam cu doua luni inainte in speranta ca va fi tare frumos afara, vom sta cu cei dragi…
