En: I know I'm not the only one still rushing to get some last minute Christmas presents. I'm not, am I? No, there's gotta be some other lazy/uninspired people out there. But do not worry, this small gigt guide comes to the rescue! We all have at least a special Her in our lives (mom, sister, bff...), so here are some ideas on cute presents for these ladies:
  • Is she into make up? Well, she's a girl, so of course she's into make up! And no matter how many or few cosmetic products she owns, a red lipstick or a nude eyeshadow palette are suitable for everyone.
  • For the perfectly accessorized girl, a cute golden bracelet will always do the trick. But if you think a piece of jewelry is too predictible, why not get her some beautiful embellished headphones? You know she'll love them!
  • The fashionista - always perfectly dressed, owns more clothes than her closet could hold. So, you think you shouldn't get her more? Well, I say that's wrong - her love of fashion is insatiable and she'll most likely be crazy excited for a fuzzy sweater and some lace shorts (or any other "on trend" item, for that matter).
  • Does she love spending Sundays in bed? Is there someone who doesn't? Maybe it's time to spoil her with the cutest pijamas and a lovely sleeping mask to encourage her to rest properly and take good care of herself because she deserves it.
  • And now here's a little bit of something for everyone: a scented candle, a thick pair of warm socks, an adorable phone case or, my personal favorite, an amazing book ("The Fault in Our Stars" would work for pretty much every girl I know).

Ro: Mai sunt 3 zile. Cu tot cu ziua de azi. Asa ca nu o s-o lungesc prea mult cu vorba. Mai jos - cateva sugestii de cadouri pentru mama, sora, cea mai buna prietena sau orice alta persoana de sex feminin careia vrei sa ii cumperi un mic cadou:
  • E vorba de fata cu machiajul mereu perfect? Sau, dimpotriva, e adepta machiajului natural, foarte putin vizibil? Exista variante de cadouri pentru fiecare: un ruj rosu sau o paleta de farduri de pleoape nude sunt indispensabile!
  • Poate ii cauti un cadou prietenei tale perfect accesorizate (stii tu - fata cu cele mai multe si mai frumoase bijuterii). Poti sa ii imbogatesti colectia cu o bratara interesanta sau, daca vrei ceva mai putin previzibil, incearca o pereche de casti albe cu pietricele aurii - o vor incanta cu siguranta.
  • Fashionista - fata indragostita de moda, cu un dulap deja prea plin. Si totusi, va mai gasi loc in sifonierul sau pentru cadoul de la tine: un pulover pufos,o pereche de pantaloni scurti din dantela sau orice alt obiect vestimentar foarte chic si foarte la moda.
  • Cui nu ii place sa isi petreaca diminetile de Duminica in pat, inconjurata de reviste, carti sau doar cu laptopul si cafeaua? Cum ar fi sa o rasfeti pe mama sau pe cea mai buna prietena cu o pijama fina numai buna pentru astfel de momente? 
  • In final, cateva idei de cadouri numai bune pentru...oricine: o lumanare parfumata, o pereche de sosete pufoase, o husa noua pentru telefon sau, preferata mea, o carte buna (cu "Sub aceeasi stea" a lui John Green mergi la sigur). Spor la cumparat!

Holiday Gift Guide: For Him!

Untitled #79

En: If you're anything like me, you must be freaking out right now, trying to figure out what gifts to get for Him (boyfriend, dad, brother, friend). I tried to put together a small list of suggestions, please treat them as inspiration and feel free to add your personal touch as the beauty of a present lies exactly in you spending precious time thinking of others!
  •  If you're intention is to go big (budget-wise) - a men's watch works every time and he'll never have too many (so, don't worry if he owns quite the collection, there's always room for more).
  •  If your boy is into winter sports, the list is limitless: snowboard, boots, ski helmet, goggles or any other budget friendly sporty item; just make sure to choose the right color to match the rest of his winter gear.
  •  If you're shopping for a guy who's into cooking, a good set of knives could make a really nice, rather unexpected gift. Otherwise, if he's a wine lover you could surprise him with a really classy corkscrew. Bonus points if it comes with his favorite wine!
  •  If you're feeling uninspired one of these works for everyone: pijamas, hat, scarf or a nice set of socks. And if you feel like it's not original enough, go crazy with the packaging!
  •  Last but not least, there are all kinds of gift cards out there, allowing him to choose his own present. But while some may think this is the best gift ever, others find it too impersonal, so be rather careful who you get them for!
  •  Don't be afraid to go wrong! If nothing else, everyone loves to be remembered and will appreciate your beautiful gesture!

Ro: E 8.12.14. Sunt 16 zile pana la Craciun si nu imi place sa aman lucrurile prea mult. Asta inseamna ca ar trebui sa pornesc la vanatoarea anuala de cadouri. Dar ce sa le iau? Ce le-ar placea lor (iubiti, tatici, frati, prieteni)? Nu, nu am raspunsul la aceasta intrebare, dar am cateva sugestii care s-ar putea sa-i surprinda placut:
  •  Daca ai un buget maricel (nu e cazul meu anul asta), un ceas e intotdeauna o idee buna! Da, chiar daca mai are vreo 5, tot o sa se bucure de un nou exemplar adaugat colectiei!
  •  Daca avem de-a face cu un impatimit al sporturilor de iarna, optiunile sunt numeroase: snowboard, casca, gogglesi si orice alte maruntisuri mai gasim pe raionul respectiv. Atentie la culori totusi, un cadou care se potriveste de minune cu restul echipamentului sau arata multa atentie si va fi cu siguranta apreciat !
  •  Daca ii place sa gateasca, un set de cutite de cea mai buna calitate il vor surprinde in mod placut. Iar daca intra in bucatarie doar cat sa aduca paharele de vin, un tirbuson nou insotit de o sticla din vinul lui preferat, ii vor fi foarte pe plac!
  •  Daca acel EL pentru care cumperi cadouri nu se incadreaza in niciuna dintre categoriile de mai sus, exista variante potrivite pentru mai toata lumea: o caciula, un fular, pijamale noi sau un set de sosete. Cadouri simple, dar utile si extrem de necesare!
  •  Ar mai fi varianta gift cardului (si gasesti cate unul peste tot). Totusi, acesta nu e un cadou chiar pentru toata lumea: unii il considera perfect, dar altora li se pare mult prea impersonal. Atentie mare, asadar, si incearca sa-i gasestii pe cei din prima categorie!
  •  Sa nu iti fie frica, nu exista cadouri gresite (doar care vor fi redaruite altora, dar chiar si acelea vor face un om fericit la urma urmei :p)!

Custom Made


En: So, I'm done! With Med School and my residency exam, that is. From now on, I'll be a dermatologist and I'm feeling super excited to finally start working. These past few months have been a marathon, one I didn't finish first, but close enough to feel good about myself and to feel grateful that all my hard work paid off. Also, I guess this means I'll be back to posting more than once a month and I'll resume reading some pretty great blogs I know I've been missing on (sorry, guys, can't wait to get back to you :D). A lot of plans, a lot more than I'd have the time to explain over here, so let's get analyzing my outfit instead: black, gray, burgundy. Simple, but made me feel priceless - maybe the custom made skirt has something to do with it? It fits perfectly (because it's made after my measurements), I love the shape (because I chose it myslef from their selection) and the color is amazing (because once again, I was able to pick it from many, many fabrics). So, if you're looking to spoil yourself with a custom made item of clothing, I highly recommend Sumissura as I think there's nothing better than clothes that fit like a dream!

Ro: Cele mai grele 5 luni. S-au terminat saptamana trecuta, o data cu examenul de rezidentiat. De azi inainte, sunt medic rezident dermatolog :D S-au terminat multe saptamana trecuta, cum ar fi pauza de la citit ce imi place (carti, reviste, bloguri la care astept cu nerabdare sa ma intorc), lipsa convorbirilor telefonice de 2 ore cu prietenele si tanjeala dupa iesiri la cafea in dupa-mesele ploioase. Lista e mult mai lunga, asa ca o sa ma opresc aici (ca sa va scriu vreo 2 cuvinte si despre tinuta de azi). Gri, negru si visiniu inchis, culorile mele favorite momentan. Dar mai mult decat cromatica aleasa, imi place fusta facuta la comanda pe site-ul celor de la Sumissura - imi vine perfect (pentru ca e facuta dupa dimensiunile mele), e cu talie inalta si are lungimea perfecta pentru mine (pentru ca eu am ales modelul), iar culoarea...mai are rost sa spun ceva despre ea? (am ales din peste 50 de variante de materiale). Daca vreti sa va rasfatati (pentru ca ati scapat de un examen greu sau...pur si simplu pentru ca toti meritam asta din cand in cand), va recomand cu incredere acest site. La urma urmei, nu e nicio haina mai frumoasa decat cea care ne vine perfect!


I was wearing: skirt - HERE; blouse - Zara; faux fur coat - New Look, similar HERE; boots - BBup; beanie - H&M Men.
Am purtat: fusta - AICI; bluza - Zara; haina blana artificiala - New Look, asemanatoare AICI; botine - BBup: caciula - H&M Men.
