Cadourile de Craciun sunt pentru multi o povara. E foarte greu sa alegi cadoul potrivit si pentru ca din punct de vedere financiar luna decembrie e una foarte incarcata. In afara de cadourile mai consistente si putin mai scumpe (pentru sot, parinti), in grupul nostru de prieteni Craciunul nu vine cu bataie de cap la pachet. Asta pentru ca incercam pe cat posibil sa nu ne facem viata grea si … gaura in buzunar. De ani buni, obisnuim sa ne oferim intre noi cateva cadouri simbolice. Iata cateva idei pe care le-am pus in practica pentru anul acesta: Lots of people have a hard time choosing Christmas gifts. It’s very hard to make a good choice, but also, financially the month of December comes along with many unplanned expenses. Besides the more expensive gifts for my close ones (husband and parents) in our friends’ group, we do not put so much pressure on ourselves for Christmas. We try not to make our life hard, we budget and try to keep it as simple as possible. Budgeting is the key for a more relaxing Christmas. We usually gift something symbolic. Here are a few ideas we tried this year:
  • Cercei cu tema/ Themed earrings:

De ziua ta iti urez sa fii mai senin, mai zambitor, sa ai motive de bucurie si de mandrie. Dar mai ales, sper sa fii mai tolerant si sa nu uiti ca numai impreuna putem schimba Romania. On your national day, I hope you’ll have reasons to smile, to be happy and proud. Above all, I hope you will learn to be more tolerant and please don’t forget that only together we can change Romania.

Am incercat ceva nou pentru blog – de azi, exista si primul post in format audio. Imi doream sa fac asta de ceva vreme asa ca nu am mai stat pe ganduri prea mult. Pentru inceput am transformat continutul unei postari mai personale, pe care o puteti citi aici. Mai jos puteti asculta cele doua fisiere, sunt disponibile in engleza si romana si o sa imi cer scuze de pe acum … da, engleza mea nu e perfecta si nu va fi niciodata. Astept parerile voastre 🙂 I tried something new for my blog – starting today you can listen to my first audio post. I wanted to do this for some time now so I took the first step. My first audio post is a personal one, you can read it here. Click below to listen to the two files, available in English and Romanian. I am going to apologize, my English is not perfect and it never will be. Enjoy, and I’m waiting for your opinions 🙂

Salutare tuturor! Am absentat nemotivat, insa in curand voi reveni aici. Am luat o scurta pauza si asta pentru ca am fost in vacanta. Mi-am dorit sa imi regasesc inspiratia si sa caut cateva idei noi. Voi reveni aici, in bucatica mea de internet si cu poze frumoase din vacanta.

Sa va bucurati in comtinuare de vara asta caniculara! 🙂

Hey everyone, just wanted to let you know that I’ll be back here with new content, images and beautiful pictures and tips from my vacation. I took some time to get inspired, recharge my batteries and think about what will happen next with my piece of the internet.

Stay cool, and enjoy the summer! 🙂
