SPRING INSPIRATION: LA FEMME

Post available in English and Romanian
De cateva zile incoace e din ce in ce mai cald in Bucuresti … primavara nu a venit inca in forta, dar incet – incet ajunge la noi. E vremea tocmai buna sa imi maresc si eu colectia de haine cu ceva lejer, mai potrivit pentru vremea de afara, pentru ca m-am saturat deja de hainele de iarna.

In mod paradoxal, nu imi plac cumparaturile, nici macar mallul care se afla in apropierea biroului meu nu ma atrage. Dar asta nu inseamna ca nu imi place sa ma imbrac bine. Hainele potrivite iti pot schimba total starea de spirit, fie ca vorbim de o zi la birou sau de o seara in oras cu fetele sau cu iubitul. Uite asa, din dorinta de a tine pasul cu moda, dar si din comoditate, de cele mai multe ori prefer sa imi fac cumparaturile online. Imi place sa cumpar de la magazinele cunoscute, in care am incredere. Un exemplu ar fi La Femme. Este un magazin care a trecut testul timpului, pe care eu il stiu de pe vremea cand inca eram la liceu (au avut un magazin pe la Universitate, foarte aproape de locul in care am invatat). Acum s-au mutat de acolo, au ales mult mai frecventatele mall-uri, dar iata ca tin pasul cu tehnologia.

Lately, the weather is warmer in Bucharest … spring is not here in full force, but it won’t be long … It’s the right time to make the switch from my winter wardrobe to the spring one, a bit lighter, more suitable for the weather outside because I’m sick of all the winter layers.

Ironically, I’m not a fan of shopping sessions, I have a huge commercial center right next to my office, but it’s not really my thing. Still, this doesn’t mean that I don’t like to dress well. The right clothes can boost your confidence, either at a work meeting or on a night out with your friends or boyfriend. From my wish to keep up with the latest fashion trends, but also because I’m a bit lazy, came my passion for online shopping. There’s only one catch: I like to buy from a trusted brand. One example is La Femme. It’s a store that stood the test of time, I used to shop here even when I was in high school (they had a store really close to my school). Now you can find them in the crowded malls, but they also keep up with technology.

A WEEK OF PAMPERING

Post available in English and Romanian
Martie, primavara, martisor, ziua femeii. In primele doua saptamani din martie am fost rasfatata in fiecare zi. Flori, dulciuri, cadouri micute care m-au facut sa zambesc si mai ales … sarutari. Si la mine acasa se vede ca a venit primavara. Voi cum v-ati rasfatat sau cum ati fost rasfatate in aceste zile? March, spring, martisor, woman’s day. In the first two weeks of March I’ve been pampered every day. Flowers, sweets, little gifts that made me smile and … lots of kisses. I can feel the new spring air even in my home. How did you pamper yourselves or how were you pampered these days?

ALMOST SPRING

Inca un pas si am iesit si din iarna. Nu pot sa ma plang, cu exceptia unei ninsori care a lasat in urma troieni, vremea a fost blanda la Bucuresti. Asa cum e frumos in prag de primavara, eu deja am inceput sa aleg … sau sa primesc 🙂 multe, multe martisoare.

Am scris aici despre acest obicei, daca sunteti curiosi sa aflati mai multe.

Another step and we’re out of the winter. I can’t complain, we only had one heavy snowfall in Bucharest. And since spring is almost here, I’ve already started to buy … or receive 🙂 the famous “martisoare”.

You can read here about this local custom, if you want to find out more.
