Gold & a sparkling winner

MAIN_GOLD
♪ Mika - Love Today ♪

I cannot believe I took this pictures just one day before the snow arrived. It was so sunny and perfect and I remember that as I was looking at the Christmas decorations that surrounded me everywhere and I thought how sad they don't have a matching snow storm to go.  Next post will be one full of snow, I promise but I thought I should publish these photos because you haven't seen me wearing many Romanian brands. I actually love and support them and I would love to have the opportunity to shop more!

Lately, I discovered I love glitter, sun and everything that sparkles! I wish I had a glitter dress for New Years eve, but I think I will just settle for a manicure. This golden sweater makes a statement: the perfect combination between casual chic and party appropriate. You can easily wear it on a regular basis, paired with jeans and some comfy boots (like I did here) yet also match it with a smart pencil skirt for a fancy dinner.

Also, this is a very special post because it's time to reveal who is the lucky winner of the Marc Jacobs bracelet! There were 154 valid entries and the bracelet goes to...

Monday Muse: S.

Simm

♪ Moonlight Breakfast- Champagne ♪

Merry Christmas, I cannot wait to see what Santa will bring to both you and me! I have been super busy lately, redecorating my room and now I'm finally done, just in time for a very special birthday: my best friend S. turns 18 today!

I love her so much and that's why I decided to bring this column back, at least for this one day! I guess it's hard for me to write just in a few words how much she means to me, and how blessed and grateful I am to have her in my life. She is so optimistic, fun and knows how to stand for her dreams. She also has an incredible fashion sense and you can find the proof at her AMAZING TUMBLR 

Sorry for the quality of the pictures, we took this back in November (I think?) at our prom and the last picture is just a proof of how much she really knows me: she bought me the Moonlight Breakfast CD for Christmas (my favourite band) and my most loved sweets.

I truly wish that you all have at least one special person in your life just like her and I hope you'll have the most peaceful and whimsical Christmas with your family!

Fancy Friday: Pink Paris

Paris

♪ Lana del Rey- Paris ♪

As a child, I had one fashion pet peeve: pink. As I grew older, I started to accept it as a color appropiate for accessories,  sometimes even for blouses. Now, I see it as a state of mind. I like to surround myself with this colour, though not excessively. As much as I would like to 'think pink', I am not the optimistic type so I guess I have this need because I want to remind myself constantly that there are reasons to be happy and relax. It's such a joyful colour and that's why I bought my beloved Marc Jacobs Ipad case in this bright fuchsia shade (or honeysuckle?). I've always dreamed of a big poster/illustration/painting to replace my moodboard and I wanted it to have a strong message, something I would really like to do someday.

So, when I found this poster with a quote of the incredible Audrey, about PARIS and pink all over it, I knew I had to have it! Also, here is my favourite quote of Audrey Hepburn, which fits with the theme perfectly:
(Blame it on the Christmas spirit, I feel so light and happy!)

Optimistic Neon

Moonlight Breakfast- Hard Times

I can't help myself but laugh as I am looking at these pictures. They show a very happy version of me, back on the 1st of December when the weather was incredible, I only grabbed a jacket and I was off to see Cloud Atlas which is definetely the best movie I've seen in 2012 (I still love Skyfall, don't worry, I wouldn't have named an outfit post after it otherwise!).

For some reason, that day felt like spring and I had so much fun with some of my friends and I had a positive thinking and I was like 'I bet it's only going to snow in February'. That's why I decided to wear my crop top (ha!) and the neon necklace I never got to wear last summer (ha ha ha).

Of course, the weather changed just as quick as my mood and now I am constantly covered in snow and exams. That's why I had to take such a long break from the blog, it is no secret that my studies are on the first place right now and I have to keep it toghether as I have decided to go for medicine (every Sunday in this semester has been about anatomy). It only felt like Christmas is approaching this weekend , when all my close friends started to give my hints about gifts and. I allowed myself to take a little break and let my creativity ( & savings) flow. It felt so good, and I am so happy to be back!

Also, I hope you entered the giveaway!
