REVIEW: PAINE SI VIN

Post available in English and Romanian
Pentru mine mancarea este una dinte micile placeri ale vietii si intotdeauna ma bucur atunci cand gasesc in Bucuresti un loc special, care ma face sa imi doresc sa revin din nou si din nou ca sa incerc gusturi speciale. E fix ceea ce mi s-a intamplat cu Paine si Vin. Food has always been one of life’s small pleasures for me, this is why I am always happy when I discover great places in Bucharest, making me want to go back again and again for a delicious bite. Here’s my recent experience at Paine si vin.

REVIEW: FENTY FOUNDATION AND LIP PAINT

Post available in English and Romanian
Linia de cosmetice lansata de Rihanna in septembrie 2017 era de mult pe lista mea de dorinte. Toata lumea lauda produsele ei si eu abia asteptam sa am ocazia sa le cumpar. Majoritatea produselor Fenty sunt extrem de bine vazute, dar cred ca in topul preferintelor tuturor sunt foundul de ten PRO FILT’R si celebrul ruj lichid STUNNA LIP PAINT. In Romania nu se gasesc inca si daca rujul puteam sa il comand de pe net, cu fondul de ten nu puteam sa ma risc fara sa il testez in prealabil. La ultima mea calatorie in Madrid m-am oprit in primul Sephora si am cumparat cele doua produse. Rihanna’s cosmetics line launched in September 2017 was on my wishlist ever since. Everyone had only nice things to say about the products and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them. Most of the Fenty products are very praised, but I believe that the PRO FILT’R foundation and the STUNNA LIP PAINT got the most positive reviews. The cosmetics line is not available in Romania; I could have bought the lip paint online, but buying a foundation without color matching it first is a no-no. During my last trip to Madrid, I rushed to the first Sephora in my way and bought the two products.

REVIEW: DINING AT SAINT GEORGE, BUCHAREST

Post available in English and Romanian
Cand nu am timp sau bani sa calatoresc, imi place sa ma simt ca in vacanta in Bucurestiul meu. Asa ca la fiecare pas prin oras incerc sa gasesc frumusetea ascunsa a locurilor prin care trec. Ca sa nu ma plictisesc niciodata, imi place sa ies in locuri cat mai diverse, si sa incerc lucruri cat mai diferite. E valabil si atunci cand vine vorba de o cina in doi. Din cand in cand, mancarea gatita in casa nu e de ajuns, ai nevoie doar de un locusor linistit, unde sa bei ceva si sa mananci ceva bun. When I don’t have the time or money to travel, I like to take a moment and feel like I’m on vacation in my Bucharest. I try to find the hidden beauty of the city with every step I take. I don’t like to visit the same places every time, it would be boring, so I try to mix it up and try different things. This also counts when we’re planning a dinner out for two. From time to time homecooked meals are not enough, all you need is a quiet place to drink and eat something tasty.

YUMMY PIES IN BUCHAREST

Post available in English and Romanian
Mereu merg cu placere sa mananc La Placinte; nu am incercat pana acum ceva din meniul lor care sa nu imi placa. Evident, preparatele de baza sunt … placintele, care vin in multe forme si cu arome diferite. Ultima data am incercat invartite cu cartofi si branza de oi, dar la fel de bune sunt cele cu branza de oi si verdeata, pe care le comand mereu cu incredere. Daca nu aveti chef de placinte, apoi, aveti de unde alege, iata ce bine arata puiul invelit in bacon, care vine impreuna cu salata de varza si un sos delicios. Sau un alt preparat nou care mie imi place mult – taitei de casa cu branza de oi. Deserturile sunt toate la fel de bune, fie ca vin sub forma de placinta sau alte bunataturi. Si pentru ca a venit frigul, puteti sa asezonati totul cu un pahar de vin fiert aromat. If I’m in the mood to eat something delicious, then La Placinte (Pie’s place) is a sure bet, you can’t leave disappointed. Obviously, the main dishes are the pies, which come in many shapes and flavors. Last time I tried one with potatoes and sheep cheese, but the ones with cow cheese and herbs are as tasty if not even more so. If you’re not in the mood for pie, you have many other dishes to choose from, the chicken wrapped in bacon is very tasty and it comes with cabbage salad and a delicious sauce. I also love the homemade noodles, that go great with sheep cheese. The desserts are even better, either in pie form or other tasty treats. And because the cold weather is here, you can also order a delicious mulled wine to go with all the goodies.

 

 

 

 

MY OBSESSION

Post available in English and Romanian

Review: CK Obsession

Cu siguranta stiti deja ca am o pasiune nebuna pentru pafumuri. Iubesc aromele si senzatiile pe care le transmit, fie ca e vorba de un parfum mai scump sau de unul accesibil tuturor. De curand am revenit la o dragoste mai veche, CK Obsession. Este un parfum extrem de puternic si dulce, de aceea trebuie aplicat cu atentie si in doze mici. Il folosesc cu drag iarna, vara evit sa folosesc parfumuri foarte puternice. Nu a fost dragoste la prima vedere intre mine si CK Obsession. Imi amintesc ca l-am incercat intr-un magazin si nu mi-a placut deloc; ajunsa acasa, dupa ce mirosul l-a asezat pe pielea mea, aroma m-a cucerit instantaneu si a ramas unul dintre preferatele mele.

La capitolul noutati se incadreaza Davidoff – Cool Water.

For those of you who are constantly reading my blog, my love for perfumes won’t come as a surprise. I love a good scent and the vibes that come with it, no matter the brand or the price. I wasn’t feeling in the mood to try something new so I chose an old love: CK Obsession. A very strong and sweet scent; I apply only a drop and I wear it mostly during the colder months. It the summer the sweetness would be overwhelming for me and my nose. It wasn’t love at first sight; I first tried Obsession in a store and hated it. After I arrived home, I suddenly loved it and it’s one of my favorites now.

And if we’re talking about new entries, I’m also trying Davidoff – Cool Water.

A PIECE OF SPAIN IN BUCHAREST

english version below

Review: Alioli, Bucharest

Iubesc mancarea din Spania, asa ca oricand poftesc la ceva dau fuga cu drag la Alioli. Au un meniu minunat si multe bauturi aduse direct din Spania. Daca nu stiti ce sa alegeti, atunci eu va recomand Paella (cu carne, fara sau cu fructe de mare) nu aveti cum sa dati gres. Ce nu mi-a placut ultima data a fost faptul ca nu mai poti comanda tortilla; au scos-o din meniu. Serios, trebuie sa o adaugati din nou, este preferata mea si este reprezentativa pentru Spania. I love Spanish food, so whenever I crave something I head out to Alioli. They have an amazing menu, topped off with great Spanish drinks. Paella is my favorite dish here so go with this if you can’t decide. You have multiple options: chicken, vegetarian or sea food. The only thing I don’t like is that they only make tortilla by demand, you can’t order it off the menu anymore. Tip: put it back in the menu, no meal is a Spanish meal without “tortilla de patatas”.
