Pulse of purism 

The makeup for today hasn’t came out as expected. But what can you do? I bought the new palette from Catrice “Pulse of purism-Pure metal palette” but I was not satisfied. The colors are not pigmented. I was very pleased with my previous palette from the Catrice so I hoped this would be like it. I was wrong, the blue is not at all pigmented and you can not see it in selfies. Or in photos at all. I used an eye primer so that is not why it did not work. Still I found two products I fell in love with:

  1. L’Oreal Paris Infallible Total Cover
  2. NYX Ombré Lip Duo-Ginger&Nutmeg

The foundation is extraordinary, it fits me perfectly. I used many foundations before from MAC, Lancôme, Estée Lauder, Guerlain etc and none of them fit me better than this one. As for the lipstick from NYX, I was never able to make an ombré until now. Thank you NYX!

Keep calm and go to London (I)

Before I left to London, I was very motivated to post daily and keep you posted on my british adventure. As you can see, I failed. I am way behind schedule. I am starting to get stressed. I am going to tell you about my first day in LONDON! It was awesome, the first and last two days were wonderful. So, let’s get started.

    Usually, waking up in the morning involves a lot of crying and suicidal thoughts, but last monday I was directly on my feet with a big smile on my face. I went to wash my teeth and to put my makeup on. I ran down the stairs to make myself a cup of coffee. I got dressed, took my coffee and went on the terrace to smoke. Staying there watching the steam from my coffee, I could not get used to the idea that I was there. My cigarette and coffee are part of my monotony, but now that I was there, everything felt special. After 30 minutes I checked one more time if I have the keys on me and got out the door.


On my way to school I was really nervous. I never taught in Romania or Germany, where I know how the school system works and now I had to teach in England where I have no idea. I got at the school and I noticed it is a catholic one. I absolutely should not be a model for the children, so my place was clearly not there. But catholic school? I don’t know anything about religion and other than that I am not even catholic. I was very close to go back home. I was having a great time on the terrace. I think I stayed for about 10 minutes in front of the school trying to reach a decision.

1. I have the makeup of a satanist.

2. I am in high heels.

3. I am all dressed in black.

Catholic school…and I look like Taylor Momsen(not little J from the first GG season.) No, I looked like I came directly from The Pretty Reckless. On the other way, the consequences will be if I don’t go. I could just see how I’m getting expelled. So…I went inside. I didn’t get on fire, no one send me to wash my eyes. It was really cool working there. I had to work with the children from the third grade and they were really sweet. The boys actually wrote me love letters. It was all prejudice. At 3pm I went home.


I was to a chinese restaurant and ordered takeout. I bought some glazed chicken with ananas and rice with sweet-sour sauce. My favorite meal. I got home, ate and did one more coffee. Who needs water when you have coffee. I think that is the best thing about water, it helps you get the coffee. I went on the terrace again to smoke. It is actually really annoying, at home I can smoke inside where I am not freezing. After a while, Aisling got home. You are probably wondering who Aisling is. She is a very talented young artist, that is also really cool and sweet. You can check out her Instagram @artbyais. She was very enthusiastic.

“Are you ready? ” she asked.

“Ready for what?” I was confused. I had no idea that we had plans.

“To see the real London!”

How can I not be?


The ones who know me, are aware that I never think everything through. So I tool my over-the-knees boots got from CiChic.com, that were not the best idea. They are really comfortable, don’t get me wrong. But I had to ran after the bus… Anyway, I went from Taylor Momsen to Kim K!🤘🏼 We ran to catch the 212. I always had a trinket with the english bus and now sitting in one, I felt like I just got inside my trinket. I know, my mind is weird.

We arrived at the Picadilly Circus from where we had to take the underground.

    After a ride with the tube we arrived to LEICESTER SQUARE where I went to China Town and Gay Village. All this people, all the lights… You feel the adrenaline pumping in your veins. I never felt more alive. Finally, every part of my body felt good. I understood the quote “A bad day in London is still better than a good day anywhere else.” You get to know people from all over the world. Actually one called me arrogant and said that my ego is too big, just because I made lots of photos and haven’t really talked to him. But he approached me in a rude way, so he didn’t really deserved my attention.

    We are at the rudest restaurant in London, which is in China Town. I understand their fame. I never seen such a rude person like the waitress from this restaurant. The food however is really good. So if you want to experience rudeness at a whole new level, go to Wong Kei in Chinatown.

    After we ate, we went to M&M’s World, the paradise for all chocolate lovers. I don’t actually like M&M’s but being there I had to buy. Everything looks soo delicious.

    We left to see the Big Ben so we headed to Westminster. Then took the bus to see the London’s Eye.

Next to it, we opened a bottle of champagne. A bottle of Bottega Rose Gold just for me and Aisling. It was one of those moments I will never forget. We talked about everything, got into some really deep conversations. I felt like I was in a movie. After 3 hours, we decided to go back home.

    In the bus we met a group of Colombians. When I told them I am from Romania, they started singing Mia Mia Mi Amor and yelled how Florin Salam is the best. Clearly everyone knows him. I couldn’t stop laughing, everything felt good. I got home so happy and pleased. My first day. Never gonna forget it. SHOP THE LOOK:

    Pe drum spre școala eram foarte emoționată. Nu am predat niciodată în România sau Germania unde știam cum funcționează sistemul școlar și acum trebuia să o fac în Anglia, unde nu aveam habar. Am ajuns la școală și observ că este o școală catolică. Eu categoric nu ar trebui să fiu un model pentru copii, așadar nu am ce căuta aici în primul rând. Dar o școală catolică? Nu știu nimic despre religie și pe lângă asta, nici măcar nu sunt catolică. Aproape m-am întors din drum să mă întorc acasă. În fond stăteam bine acolo pe terasă. Cred că am stat vreo 10 minute în fața școlii încercând să ajung la o concluzie. 1. Sunt machiată ca o satanistă.2. Sunt în tocuri.3. Sunt îmbrăcată în negru din cap până în picioare. Școală catolică…și eu arăt ca Taylor Momsen (nu mă refer la Jenny din primul sezon GG) nu, eu vin direct din The Pretty Reckless. Pe de altă parte, puteam vedea consecințele care vor fi, dacă nu intram în școala aia. Urma să fiu exmatriculată când mă întorceam în Germania. Așadar, am intrat. Nu am luat foc, nimeni nu m-a trimis să mă spăl pe ochi și nici nu a trebuit să îmi spun păcatele. De fapt, toată lumea a fost foarte prietenoasă. Iar copii din clasa a treia D au fost foarte dulci. După pauza de prânz aveam chiar și câteva scrisori de dragoste din partea lor. La ora trei am plecat acasă.     M-am dus la un restaurant chinezesc să îmi iau ceva de mâncare la pachet. Mi-am luat pui glazurat cu ananas și orez tras în sos dulce acrișor. Mâncarea mea preferată. Am ajuns acasă, am mâncat și mi-am mai făcut o cafea. Cui îi trebuie apă când există cafea. De fapt cred că cea mai bună calitate a apei este că poți face cafea cu ea. M-am dus iarăși pe terasă să fumez. Este de fapt destul de enervant, acasă pot fuma liniștită în casă unde nu este frig. După un timp a venit Aisling acasă. Probabil vă întrebați cine este Aisling. Este o artistă foarte talentată care se întâmplă să fie și foarte de treabă. Puteți să aruncați o privire pe Instagramul ei @artbyais. Era foarte entuziasmată. -Esti gata? mă întreabă.-Gata pentru ce? Nu știam că avem planuri. -Să vezi adevărata Londra! Cum să nu fiu? M-am încălțat și mi-am luat geanta.     Am fugit după un autobuz și am ajuns la Picadilly Circus. De aici trebuia sa luăm un metrou.     După o plimbare cu metroul am ajuns în Leicester Square unde m-am plimbat prin China Town și Gay Village. Toți oamenii aceia…poți simți adrenalina pulsându-ți în vene. Nu m-am simțit niciodată mai vie. Atunci am înțeles citatul “O zi rea în Londra este în continuare mai bună decât o zi bună oriunde altundeva.” (În engleză sună mai bine)      Am mers să mâncăm la cel mai nepoliticos din Londra. Credeți-mă când vă zic că își merită faima. Dacă vreți să experimentați această nesimțire, când mergeți în Londra, mergeți la Wong Kei în Chinatown.     După ce am mâncat, am mers la M&M’s World, paradisul iubitorilor de ciocolată. Sincer mie nici măcar nu îmi plac și tot a trebuit să cumpăr. Totul arăta prea bine. 

    Am luat autobuzul până la London’s Eye. Lângă el am desfăcut o sticlă de șampanie. O sticlă de Bottega Rose Gold numai pentru mine și Aisling. M-am simțit ca într-un film. Pot spune că îmi râdea sufletul, uitându-ma în spate și văzând London’s Eye. Am stat acolo vreo trei ore apoi am decis să mergem acasă.     La întoarcere în autobuz am întâlnit un grup de columbieni. Când le-am spus că sunt din România au început să cânte Mia Mia Mi Amor și să urle că Florin Salam este cel mai tare. Sincer, nu mă puteam opri din râs. Se pare că toată lumea știe cine îi Florin Salam. Am ajuns acasă și m-am pus să dorm și cred că toată noaptea am dormit zâmbind. 

London here I come

After an attempt to go blonde and failing, after all the crying when I looked in the mirror and the run at 2 a.m to find hair color so that I can go back to my natural color, I managed somehow to catch the plane. It wasn’t easy, I was very close to go back to sleep and screw all this. But here I am, with a large coffee in my hand and my cigarette in the other waiting in the aeroport. I am finally going to England. I waited for so long and now that it is happening I am not as excited as I thought I’ll be. Maybe I am still shocked for the orange I had on my hair last night. Am I the only one that gets an adrenaline rush when it comes to fly away? I just can’t stand still. I actually wanted to read but here I am shaking. I’m escaping!






The blushed Nudes:Review

A few days ago, I went to buy some groceries and like always I ended up in DM. I wasn’t looking for something in particular, but somehow I am always leaving with new lipsticks, new palettes etc. In the store it was a huge poster with #GigiHadid, that really caught my attention. So of course, I was curious for what she promotes. I see the new palette collection from Maybelline New York and of course I bought them all… #makeupaddict. Lately, I am more in the #mood for natural makeup so I fell in love with #theblushednudes palette. When I got home I started asking questions about this palette on different makeup groups. The answers were quite negative and I felt a bit disappointed. Everyone said the colors aren’t pigmented, that it smudges etc..

I decided to try it out myself tomorrow and I have to say, I am very pleased with it. It’s not an Urban Decay palette, where your expectations are high. It’s not a high end product. When I want a nude, natural look, this palette is definitely my #go-to.

What are your opinions about the Maybelline New York palette?

Does love really make you blind?

Many of us think about the past relationships and wonder how they couldn’t see the real character of the person they loved. Well, stay tuned because I am going to tell you why you didn’t.

I had different kinds of relationships and in some I couldn’t see how boring they were, or how they weren’t very smart or how arrogant etc… All my friends told me again and again but I never really noticed. It’s like you are blind.

People go blind for many things. Money makes you blind, love etc.. The truth is it’s terrible to not being able to see what is right before you.

I can’t help but wonder, is this what’s so magical about love? The fact that you can’t see the flaws of the one you love and neither can he/she? We judge people everyday based on their flaws but when it comes to the one we love we just move past them. Suddenly a normal person becomes perfect in our mind. I have to admit this is interesting.

Lucy Brown, doctor in neuroscience at Albert Einstein College of Medicine said that love doesn’t make you blind but it blurs your vision. You see the flaws from the person you love but your brain tells you it’s ok to ignore them.

Reistad Long (UCL) said that there are many similarities between the maternal love and the love for your partner. Actually every kind of love uses the same parts of the brain, particularlt the prefrontal cortex. This part inhibits our negative emotions but also affects the network involved in maing social judgments about that person. This is why we don’t listen to our friends.

How can be something so supremely pure and beautiful can work like a manipulation. An automanipulation. We accept this because of the “reward” of love, of happiness.

What is even more interesting is that many drugs work in the same way as love. The same part of the brain is involved in the use of drugs and the purpose is the same. The “reward” of happiness.

Science also declares that until the passion and the flame from the beggining passes you won’t be able to see the flaws from the one you love.

Did love “blind” you? If yes, don’t hesitate to share this post.

Importancy of eye color

Just like all the other girls on this eart, I tried to look my best for the New Year’s party. A new year was about to start and I had to have my makeup on fleek, right? Usually when it comes to makeup I never fail, however this time something just wasn’t right. I had to go so I didn’t have the time to remake it. Although I received compliments (don’t know if they were only from courtesy) but I wasn’t pleased with how it looked. I inspired from a photo where the girl had the exact form of my eyes. Trying to figure out what I did wrong, I realized the girl has blue eyes. It was the first time I noticed how much difference the eye color can make to a makeup. So, I prepared a look for all the girls there with brown eyes.

Enjoy!

Winter look.

I was sitting in front of the closet and as usually I had no idea what to wear. The green velvet skirt from my mom’s new collection caught my attention. I took it with my nude tights from Falke. Then I just had to find what to wear with the skirt. Because it’s really cold I decided for a beige high neck long sleeve top fron Zara and a grey blazer from Trussardi. However, the outfit looked to simple so I matched it with a corset and a fur collar. I had one more decision to take. The toughest one. What shoes? Finally, I decided for the suede ankle boots from Max&Co.

So that was it!

You gotta love mocha rose!

Today I felt in love with a new color palette, the mocha rose.

They are so girly and delicate. The slight pink gives you a feeling of gratitude and appreciation combined with lavender that is associated with royalty just makes this color perfect.

It’s freezing outside and I’m sick so for a couple days now I’m feeling always cold plus this weather makes me feel a bit low. It’s like you don’t see happy people on the streets anymore, everyone is quiet and shivering. But then today I found this photos in mocha rose tone and it was like a hug for my soul. So I thought to share it with you. Hope they are gonna make your day better too.
