8 REGULI DE CONDUITA PE RETELELE DE SOCIALIZARE_social media rules_fashion blog Bacau

[RO]                                                                                                                                        [EN]

SOCIAL MEDIA! Ce mai e de spus despre retelele de socializare, decat faptul ca… sunt pentru socializare! Dar.. cum, cand, unde, de ce, cu cine, cu ce, cui, ce anume? Si lista poate continua! Iata cele cateva reguli de conduita pe care le-am gandit eu, pentru a fi “friendly” but not “too friendly” in mediul online:

#1. NU TE IMPLICA IN DISCUTII CONTRADICTORII!

Este foarte ok sa iti impartasesti gandurile, opiniile despre un anumit subiect, insa, incearca pe cat posibil sa le eviti pe cele care genereaza un ping pong de opinii diferite, care mai de care mai justificate! Aici ma refer la subiectele controversate precum religia, rasa si politica! Daca tu consideri ca parerea ta are potentialul de a ofensa pe cineva, cea mai inteleapta alegere este sa nu o postezi pe tot internetul! O poti discuta fata in fata, printr-un mesaj in privat sau o poti abandona! Crede-ma! S-au stricat prietenii din cauza asta!

#2. CREEAZA LIMITE!

Cunoaste limita dintre viata personala si viata profesionala si creeaza profiluri separate! Astfel, daca detii o afacere sau esti freelancer, poti crea o pagina separata care sa iti reprezinte munca, pe care poti posta si purta discutii relevante pentru activitatea si clientii tai. Daca le imbini pe cele doua, risti ca prietenii tai sa iti dea unfriend, nu din rea vointa, ci din cauza faptului ca esti prea sacaitor cu promovarea afacerii tale in care poate ei nu se regasesc.

#3. CE TIE NU ITI PLACE ALTUIA NU-I FACE!

Asta e o regula general valabila, atat online, cat si offline! Intotdeauna vor exista persoane care sa te provoace, insa tu trebuie sa te ridici deasupra lor si sa dai dovada de o conduita adecvata, chiar si online. Asadar, nu raspunde cu aceeasi moneda, daca e moneda care nu te caracterizeaza, indiferent de cat de tentat ai fi!

#4. NU POSTA NIMIC ILEGAL!

Vrei sa iti sabotezi cariera si reputatia? Posteaza ceva ilegal, ofensator sau violent! Chiar si glumele care fac referire la o activitate ilegala se pun! Oricat de distractiv este, pastreaza tot ce te poate incrimina in intimitatea grupului tau de prieteni, pentru amuzamentul vostru via WhatsApp, Viber, Skype s.a.

#5. NU VORBI DESPRE LOCUL DE MUNCA!

Un lucru destul de comun este sa impartasesti propriile ganduri in timp ce esti la birou. NU NU NU! Te-ar putea vedea chiar seful (care si-a facut un profil incognito), vreunul din colegi sau vreun colaborator. Dupa cum bine stii, firmele si-au facut un obicei sa recruteze tocmai prin intermediul acestor platforme. Ei au obiectivul sa descopere persoana din spatele CV-ului (destul de periat pe care l-ai postat pe ejobs, bestjobs, olx si alte cate si mai cate). Chiar daca nu doresti sa te angajezi undeva sau sa fii cautat de vreun angajator, sunt headhunteri care cauta in mod constant talente neslefuite pentru joburi mai bune. Asadar, incearca sa iti mentii imaginea virtuala pozitiva si placuta, intrucat nu doresti sa ratezi sansa unei cariere de succes, nu?

#6. SPUNE STOP ABORDARILOR AGRESIVE!

LinkedIn si Twitter sunt uneltele preferate networking-ului cu alti profesionisti din domeniu. Totusi, exista o diferenta uriasa intre networking si hartuire. Daca trimiti zeci de mesaje sau scrisori de intentie potentialilor angajatori, nu vei reusi sa obtii job-ul dorit, ba mai mult ii vei indeparta! Chiar daca tu esti un potential angajat bun, trebuie sa acorzi un spatiu, altfel atitudinea ta va fi perceputa a fi lipsa de profesionalism! Foloseste social media pentru a cauta sfaturi si a initia conexiuni placute, nu pentru a implora angajatorii pentru un job!

#7. ALEGE-TI CU MARE GRIJA PRIETENII!

Ai mare grija cu cine interactionezi pe internet! Regula de baza este sa nu accepti si nici sa trimiti cereri de prietenie oricui, oricand! Obiectivul tau este sa ai cat mai multi prieteni, astfel vei acumula mai multe informatii/noutati despre ei si preferintele lor. Insa, ai sa ai parte de suprize chiar din partea persoanelor la care nu te asteptai: sa posteze lucruri indecente sau inadecvate. Nu uita un lucru: nu esti singura care le vede!

#8. TEMPEREAZA POSTAREA PREA MULTOR ASPECTE DIN VIATA PERSONALA!

Nu posta nimic daca te simti: suparat, trist, dezamagit de cineva/ceva, obosit sau dupa ce ai baut cam multe pahare de vin! Sigur vei posta niste lucruri pe care le vei regreta ulterior; cu totii stim hashtag-ul #AboutLastNight. Nu este nimic in neregula cu o poza din club cu prietenele tale (si eu am postat, postez si voi posta), insa, trebuie sa recunosti ca s-ar putea intoarce impotriva ta. Posteaz-o daca stii ca e decenta, nu invers! De asemenea, daca esti prea “fericit” si postarile tale sunt prea “fericite”, persoanele se vor plictisi de prea multa “fericire” si iti vor da unfollow. DA! #truestory

APROPO, V-ATI GANDIT VREODATA CAM CUM AR ARATA RETELELE DE SOCIALIZARE DACA AR FI BARBATI? IATA AICI! EU M-AM AMUZAT TERIBIL!

SOCIAL MEDIA! What’s there to say about social media, except… they are meant for socializing! But.. how, when, where, why, with whom, with what, whom, what purpose? And the list can go on! Here are some basic rules that I could think of, in order to be “friendly” but not “too friendly” in online:

#1. STAY OUT OF COTRADICTORY DISCUSSIONS!

It’s ok to share your thoughts about a certain subject, but try to avoid those who generate follow up Q&A, justified or not! I am talking about topics like religion, race and politics! If you consider that your opinion could be offensive to someone, the wise choice would be not to post it all over the internet! You can discuss it face to face, in a private message or you can just leave it as it is! Trust me! Friendships were ruined because of it!

#2. CREATE BOUNDARIES!

Be sure you know the limit between your personal life and your professional one and lead them separately! So, if you own a business or you are a freelancer, you can just create a separate page to represent your work, where you can even connect with your clients about your products/services. If you combine them both, you rick to lose some of your friends because of the fact that you might be nagging with promoting your business.

#3. DO NOT DO IT TO OTHERS IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT FOR YOURSELF!

That’s a classic one, online and offline! There always will be someone out there to challenge you, but you just have to be intelligent and have proper behavior, even online. Therefore, don’t respond in the same manner as they did, no matter how tempted you may be, because you know that it doesn’t suit you!

#4. DO NOT SHARE OR POST ANYTHING ILLEGAL!

Do you want to sabbotage your entire career and reputation? just post something illegal, offending or violent! Even a harmless joke that refers to something illegal, counts! As fun as you might consider it, keep it between your friends for your own amusement via WhatsApp, Viber, Skype s.a.

#5. DO NOT TALK ABOUT YOUR WORKPLACE!

People always forget that they are not supposed to share thoughts of their workplace, especially while they are on their workplace! NO NO NO! Your boss might see you (under an incognito profile name), or one of your co-workers or even a client. As you know, many employers seek future employees on these social media platforms. They have the purpose to discover the person behind the resume (the one you already posted on ejobs, bestjobs, olx and others). Even if you don’t seek a job, you might become interesting for a specific employer or headhunter that seek constantly new talents for better jobs. Therefore, try to mentain a positive image in the digital world, because you don’t want to ruin the chance of a successful career, right?

#6. STOP THE AGGRESSIVE APPROACHES!

LinkedIn and Twitter are the main tools for the professional people. Anyway, there is a huge difference between networking and harassment. If you send tons of messages and cover letters to possible employers, you won’t get any job interviews and you will further them more! Even if you are a good potential employee, you have to give them space, or you will be perceived as a lack of professionalism! Use social media to seek career advices and initate good connections, not to beg the employers for a job!

#7. CHOOSE YOUR FRIENDS CAREFULLY!

Have a good look at the poeple you interract with! The main rule is not to accept or send friend requests to everyone, everywhere! Prepare to be amazed with the people at least espected to post innapropriate things. Do not forget one thing: you are not the only one who sees them!

#8. CONTROL THE POSTS ABOUT YOUR PERSONAL LIFE!

Do not post a thing if you feel: sad, dissapointed by someone/something, tired or after a wild night with lots of wine. You will share things that are regretable later on; we all remember the hashtag #AboutLastNight. It’s perfectly fine to post a picture with your friends while clubbing (been there, done that, will do it again), but you have to admit that it will turn against you. Post it only if it’s decent, not the other way around! Also, if you are “happy” and your posts are “too happy”, people will get bored of “too much happiness” and will unfollow you. YES! #truestory

BY THE WAY, HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT HOW SOCIAL MEDIA WOULD LOOK IF IT WOULD BE REPRESENTED BY MEN? HERE IT IS! I WAS TERRRIBLY AMUSED BY IT!

PARTEA 1 o veti regasi AICI unde ati aflat deja Greseala #1, Greseala #2 & Greseala #3. Iata care sunt urmatoarele:

GRESEALA #4: Nu iti imparti parul pe suvite!

Daca alegi sa iti indrepti parul pe toata lungimea, fara a avea un plan prestabilit, nu vei face decat sa il indrepti la suprafata, nu si pe dedesubt. Astfel, vei iesi din casa si parul tau va sta drept pret de… o jumatate de ora, ca si cum nici nu l-ai aranjat! Imparte-l in suvite nici prea groase, nici prea subtiri si indreapta-le cu rabdare, insa nu da de prea multe ori cu placa pe aceeasi suvita! Mai degraba mergi incet de sus pana jos, decat sa mergi repede si sa mai revii cu placa o data, de 2 ori, de 3 ori pana simti ca e dreapta!

GRESEALA #5: Nu ai parul curat!

…Asta din motivul aplicarii repetate de produs de ingrijire sau de finisare. Imagineaza-ti doar cum placa de par se va lipi in mod bizar de suvițele tale. Brrr…un feeling cel putin ciudat!

GRESEALA #6: Ignori multiplele utilizari ale placii de par!

Placa de par este perfecta pentru indreptarea panglicilor, pentru gulerele de camasa care pur si simplu refuza sa se aseze corespunzator. Atentie doar sa nu apesi prea tare sau sa lasi sa actioneze prea mult, altfel vei strica materialul.

Placa de par pe care o folosesc eu este Babyliss Pro Fast&Furious cu incalzire instantanee, si o stabilitate a caldurii garantata. Ajunge la o temperatura de 230 grade, placile in sine avand tehnologia Sol-Gel cu pana la 40% mai durabile decat cele de ceramica. O gasiti pe www.procosmetic.ro (AICI) cu 312 lei + costuri de livrare.

You can read PART 1 HERE where you already know Mistake #1, Mistake #2 & Mistake #3. Here are the following:

TAKE #4: You rush into it!

If you choose to straighten it without having a plan, you will fix it superficially. That’s why you will go outside and your hair will be straight for… half hour, it’s like you never fix it! Split it into strands of hair not too thick, not to thin, and straighten it patiently, but do not insist many times on the same strand. You should go slowly from top to bottom, rather than fast forward and to fix the same strand of hair more than twice, just to be sure it’s straight!

MISTAKE #5: You don’t have a clean hair!

…That’s the reason for applying too much product on your hair. Just picture how the hair straightener will stick to your hair in a funny way. Brrr… what an odd feeling!

MISTAKE #6: You ignore the multiple uses of the hair straightener!

The hair straightener is perfect for stretching your ribbons and your stubborn collars from some shirts. Pay attention not to press too hard, otherwise you’ll ruin the fabric.

My hair straightener is Babyliss Pro Fast&Furious with an instant heat, and a perfect control of the temperature. It gets up to 230 degrees, and it has the Sol-Gel technology up to 40% more durable than the ceramic ones. You can find it on www.procosmetic.ro (HERE) with 312 lei + shipping costs.

[RO]                                                                                                                                                       [EN]

Stilul vestimentar de inspiratie rock a ajuns unul dintre cele mai apreciate trenduri in moda. Confera un plus de atitudine si incredere. Stilul rock se intrepatrunde cu glam, punk sau grunge insa, ramane la fel de abordabil si de modern. In situatia de fata, pielea este un must-have cand construiesti o tinuta cu influente rock.

Dupa mine, in fiecare zi as purta cel putin un articol facut din piele! Fie ca sunt o pereche de pantaloni, fie ca e o poseta, un accesoriu fistichiu, o bluza funky, sau o jeaca, acest material imi da o anumita atitudine, acel <je ne sais quoi>.

Toamna ce tocmai a trecut m-a inspirat sa fac o sedinta foto dedicata acestui costum superb din piele de culoare burgundy. Am achizitionat deux-piece-ul anul trecut, de la Orsay si e format dintr-o pereche de pantaloni si o bluza cu maneca scurta cu partea din fata din piele si partea din spate din bumbac + elastan.

Nu numai ca sunt super versatile piesele vestimentare purtate separat, ci sunt extraordinar de faine si purtate impreuna! Consider ca e un deux-piece de calitate si bine croit (asta pana cand a sarit catelusa mea, Maya, pe mine si mi-a tras o zgarietura de toata frumusetea pe piciorul stang). Damn! Lucky me, nu se vede, iar spalatul lor la mana a avut acel efect de polish, incat abia daca se mai observa.

Am ales sa o asortez cu o caciulita burgundy, din acelasi film, o pereche de botine in aceeasi culoare, astfel incat look-ul sa aiba punctul de “i”. Enjoy! At least, I did! Partea proasta la acesti pantaloni, ar fi ca au pe dedesubt o imitatie din piele intoarsa si, daca ii porti intr-o zi mai calduroasa, vei simti ca te sufoci in ei. In alta ordine de idei, iarna, n-as mai iesi din ei.

Intr-unul din articolele urmatoare, va voi arata cam cat de versatili pot fi acesti minunati pantaloni! Stay tuned!

The casual fashion style with a rock twist, became one of the best trends in fashion. It gives you a certain attitude and confidence. The rock inspo mixed with glam, punk or grunge, remains approachable and quite modern, if you ask me. In this situation, leather is a must-have, if you want to rock your way through the day.

If it were for me, I would wear every single day at least one leather clothing item. Either it’s a pair of pants, a bag, a weird accessory, a funky shirt or a jacket, this specific fabric gives me quite an attitude, that <je ne sais quoi>.

Last fall inspired me to do a photo shoot dedicated to this beautiful burgundy outfit. I bought this deux-piece last year, from Orsay and it has straight pants and a short sleeve shirt with leather in the front and cotton&elastane in the back.

If you wear them separately, you’ll find them quite versatile, the same is if you wear them together. I really think that this deux-piece is qualitative and is well done (until my dog, Maya, jumped on me and scratched them on the left side). Damn! Lucky me, it’s not that visible, and the hand wash had a polish effect on them. Now, you can barely see the scratch.

I chose to wear it with a burgundy beanie and a pair of ankle boots, in order to complete the outfit. Enjoy! At least, I did! The worst part of these pants is that they have on the inside an imitation suede and, if you wear them on a warm day, you will feel suffocated in them. On the other side, during the winter, I wouldn’t take them off, because they are cozy.

In a following article, I will show you just how versatile can be these gorgeous pants! Stay tuned!

Astazi vreau sa va vorbesc despre Atelierul de Creatie Ramelle – un brand bacauan care incepe sa prinda contur si renume intre fetele care doresc sa fie stilate si sa poarte piese vestimentare unicat.

Totul incepe cu o masina de cusut si multa creativitate! Iar designerul din spatele brandului Ramelle este Ramona Vartolomei, nu numai deosebita in ceea ce creeaza ci si un om frumos si echilibrat in toate. Am avut placerea sa o cunosc personal cu ocazia lansarii colectiei <MANDALA> in cadrul evenimentului “BLACK FRIDAY… ESTE ZIUA TA DE CUMPARATURI PLACUTE IN ARENA MALL! din 27 noiembrie 2015. Hai sa va introduc in lumea ei!

RAMELLE este un brand care s-a nascut dintr-o pasiune de nestins pentru arta. Se inspira din tot ceea ce ne inconjoara si da viata artei prin vestimentatie, accesorii si obiecte de decor. Folosind tipare proprii pentru crearea articolelor vestimentare, atat pentru femei cat si pentru barbati fiecare creatie se caracterizeaza prin adaptabilitate la trasaturile fizice si stilul propriu.

Brandul a lansat pana acum 5 colectii: Traditional Chic, Mystery, Dualism, Natural Elements si MANDALA. Ultima colectie, MANDALA are ca inspiratie mandalele, o lume a culorilor, a visarii, a intoarcerii la origini.

<<Natura este cea care ma inspira, e de ajuns sa privim cateva clipe in jurul nostru si putem observa cum intreaga Creatie ne invita sa privim pictura sa sublima: forme geometrice, culori si multe altele. Cuvantul “mandala” deriva din limba sanscrita, facand referire la centru sau la cerc, la sinele interior, punctul creator. Fiecare cultura are in simbolistica sa mandalele, diferenta dintre ele constand in imbinarea de culori si forme. Colectia MANDALA este invaluita de poveste, culoare si influente din aceste culturi, reprezentate de diferitele texturi si aplicatii manuale precum pietre naturale, lemn, pene, unele tinute fiind presarate cu pictura manuala. Aceasta colectie are ca mesaj frumusetea naturala, redata prin creatii ce aduc bucurie, relaxare, confera unicitate si evadare din zona cotidiana celor care le poarta>> declara designer-ul Ramona Vartolomei. Materialele folosite sunt lejere si vaporoase (voal chifon) pentru rochii de seara, dar si lana pentru rochii pentru toamna/iarna, purtabile in orice situatie in care vrei sa iesi in evidenta (maneci statement, aplicatii metalice si geometrice).

Va invit sa urmariti noile creatii ale brandului pe pagina lor de facebook & website! De asemenea, in galeria foto veti regasi colectia MANDALA – femei si barbati. Articolele mele preferate sunt: rochia lunga vaporoasa bleu, rochia scurta roz cu maneci statement (varianta mama + fiica), rochia scurta neagra cu elemente deosebite in fata (partea de jos), si nu in ultimul rand, vesta lunga bej din lana.

Today I want to tell you about Ramelle Atelier – a brand from Bacau that starts to rock among the girls who want to be stylish and to wear unique clothing items. The atelier is on Stefan cel Mare street, no. 24E, ADAMA building, at the ground floor.

Everything starts with a sewing machine and a lot of creativity! The designer behind the brand is Ramona Vartolomei, not only exquisite at her work, but beautiful as a person. I had the pleasure to meet her during the launch of her latest collection <MANDALA> during the event “BLACK FRIDAY… IT”S YOUR SHOPPING DAY AT ARENA MALL! on 27-th November 2015. Let me present it to you!

RAMELLE is a brand born from the passion for art. My source of inspiration is everything around us and that is transferred into pieces of clothing, accessories and interior design. The designer makes her own pattern when it comes to create pieces of clothing for men and women, and each creation suits perfectly to one’s style and body measurements.

Until now, the brand launched 5 different collections: Traditional Chic, Mystery, Dualism, Natural Elements and MANDALA. The last one, MANDALA was inspired from mandalas – a world full of colors, dreams and back to the origins.

<<The nature inspires me the most and we can observe how the whole Creation invites us to watch the paintings: geometrical shapes, colors and many others. The word “mandala” comes from the Sanskrit language, referring to the center/circle, to self, to the creation point. Each culture has in its symbolism mandalas, the differences between them being the combination of the colors with the shapes. The MANDALA Collection has its own story, color and influences along with the fabrics and the handmade accessories like stones, wood, feathers. This collection expresses the natural beauty and its items are joyful, unique, relaxed and are the sweet escape from the ordinary for those who wear them>> says the designer Ramona Vartolomei. The fabrics are loose (chiffon veil) for the long evening dresses, the wool for the comfy dresses for autumn/winter, wearable in every situation when you want to stand out (statement sleeves, handmade metallic accessories and geometric ones).

I invite you to see the pieces of clothing on their facebook page & website! Also, in the photo gallery you will find the MANDALA Collection – women & men. My favorites are: the long blue dress, the short pink dress with statement sleeves (mother + daughter), the short black dress with exquisite handmade elements (in front, the lower side) and, last but not least, the long beige wool vest.

CHECK IN: Pensiunea Cattaleya (ruta Bacau-Brasov KM-15 DN 11)

DATA: 09 ianuarie 2016

OCAZIA: Petrecere Botez

Hmm, frumos! Pur si simplu frumos! Am fost pentru prima data la Pensiunea Cattaleya si am ramas placut impresionata. Personal serviabil, mancare buna, companie si mai buna. Uitandu-ma pe site, am vazut ca au si un centru SPA cel putin interesant. Nimic nu e mai frumos decat o relaxare la SPA cu servicii all-inclusive: piscina incalzita la 30 de grade, sauna turceasca, jacuzzi, sedinte de masaj, cocktailuri, toate intr-o atmosfera calduroasa, eleganta si moderna. TENTANT!

Desi invitatia te imbia la… un biberon cu lapte, am baut sampanie, vin si martini si am ars caloriile acumulate pe tot parcursul serii (pentru ca s-a dansat, nu gluma).

Ziua a debutat la… salonul Floarea de Colt, unde am mers cu voucherul primit de la evenimentul din decembrie 2015, <Curs de moda si stil cu Ana Morodan> organizat de Rosesociety. Voucherul continea un machiaj realizat de Anca Higiu si o diagnoza a firului de par + tratament + fionat. Cand am ajuns acolo, parca pasisem in rai si toate serviciile erau platite! HIHI!

Totul a inceput cu diagnoza firului de par si aplicarea unui tratament marca Kerastase + un relaxaaaaaant masaj al scalpului, realizat de Nicoleta Sendrea. Ulterior, am trecut la machiaj.

Anca a fost o profesionista desavarsita si mi-a explicat cat de gresit sunt… pensata. Ce-i drept, din lipsa de timp, am facut procedura acasa, insa n-am facut-o bine. Ea a retusat situatia cu produse MAC si rezultatul final a fost un machiaj profesional impresionant care ma schimba cu totul. Toate produsele au fost waterproof, rezistente in orice imprejurare. De asemenea, Anca mi-a aplicat extensii de gene de la XTREME LASHES, niste gene individuale splendide cu efect WOW. Ulterior, am negociat impreuna cu Nicoleta cea mai potrivita aranjare a parului si aceasta a fost: un bob realizat din bucle. Am iesit papusa de acolo!

Mi-a placut mult ca amandoua au comunicat cu mine si mi-au spus pas cu pas ce se intampla, mai cu seama ce rochie voi purta pentru seara respectiva, intocmai pentru a fi in ton cu ce urmau ele sa imi faca. Multumesc mult dragele mele!

Floarea de Colt Bacau, EXTREME LASHES

Pentru acest eveniment, am ales o rochie delicata achizitionata din magazinul Mineli Boutique din Arena Mall (Bacau) anul trecut. Este o rochie usor lejera pe corp, intr-o combinatie perfecta de alb si negru. Daca te uiti atent, spui ca ai doua rochii pe tine: cea de dedesubt e alba iar cea de deasupra este neagra, incheindu-se cu un snur finut la spate. Astfel, albul iese la iveala doar la maneci si in partea din spate. Este sexy dar nu prea sexy, scurta dar nu prea scurta, numai perfecta pentru un botez. Am ales sa pun o pata de culoare in accesorii, mai exact, pantofii rosii de la Bershka achizitionati in septembrie anul trecut (chiar de ziua mea). Cerceii au fost de tip statement, negri.

CHECK IN: Cattaleya Bed&Breakfast (Bacau-Brasov route KM-15 DN 11)

DATE: 09-th January 2016

OCCASION: Christening Party

Hmm, beautiful! Simply beautiful! I was for the first time at Cattaleya and I was pleased to see the helpful staff, the good food, and the best company. Checking out their website I saw that they even have a SPA. Nothing better than a SPA with all-inclusive: heated swimming pool (30 degrees), sauna, steam turkish room, massage, cocktails, everything in a cozy, elegant and modern SPA. TEMPTING!

Although the invitation said that we will drink… a bottle of milk, we drank champaigne, wine and martini and we burnt the callories (everyone danced all night).

INVITATIE BOTEZ PENSIUNEA CATTALEYA MAGURA BACAU

The day started with… Floarea de Colt Beauty Salon, were I had the voucher from the event of Rosesociety in december 2015, <Curs de moda si stil cu Ana Morodan>. The voucher contained a professional make-up by Anca Alexandra Higiu and a diagnosis of the hair+treatment+dry out. When I got there, it was like heaven and all the services were already paid for! HIHI! Everything started with a diagnosis of the hair and applying a Kerastase hair treatment + a relaaaaxing massage of the scalp, by Nicoleta Sendrea. Afterwards, I had the make-up.  Anca was truly a professional and told me that I had the wrong… eyebrow shape. To be honest, I didn’t had the time to go to the beauty salon and I had them done at home. She managed to retouch it with MAC products and the final result was a professional make-up that changed me completely. Every product was waterproof, long-lasting in every situation. Anca applied also false eyelashes by XTREME LASHES, may I say individual and splendid ones.  After that, I negociated with Nicoleta the perfect hairstyle for the party: a curly bob. I got out of there looking like a princess! I liked them both because they told me everything step by step, and, most importantly, what the dress looked like, in order to be adjusted with the make-up and the hairstyle. Thank you both!

For this event, I chose a delicate dress from Mineli Boutique from Arena Mall (Bacau) bought last year. It’s a dress quite loose, in a perfect combination of black and white. If you look carefully you would say that you have two dresses on: the one beneath is white and the one above is black and complets the outfit with a string at the back of it. You can see the white part only at the sleeves and in the back. It’s sexy, but not too sexy, it’s short but not that short, just right for this specific party. I chose to make a statement with the accesories: the red stillettos from Bershka (bought in september 2015, on my birthday) and the earings were statement and black.

N-am crezut niciodata ca o sa imi fac tatuaj! Pe bune! Am cochetat in nenumarate randuri cu ideea, insa niciodata nu am luat-o in serios! Nu de frica, nu de durere, nu de parerea altora! N-am facut-o pentru ca am zis ca e doar un moft, o pasa trecatoare si nu are rost sa imi ascult instinctul (de data asta).

De ce o inima? De vreo 3-4 ani imi doresc un tatuaj! Subliniez un tatuaj! Si acela a fost reprezentat de o inimioara pe piciorul drept. Mi s-a pus pata iremediabil pe ea si am lasat sa treaca timpul sa vad daca ma razgandesc. N-a fost asa, dorinta a persistat si intr-un final, am facut-o! De ce inimioara? Pentru ca e motorul organismului si functioneaza in stransa legatura cu ratiunea cand iei o decizie in viata. Este un tatuaj minimalist si finut. FYI, tatuajele in forma de inima erau foarte populare in randul soldatilor din al doilea război mondial, fiind dovada dragostei celor dragi care i-au insotit si au fost o reamintire constanta a cauzei pentru care luptau.

De ce diamant? La incheietura mainii drepte, mi-am tatuat un diamant! Multa lume m-a intrebat care e semnificatia acestuia. In primul rand, diamantul este regele pietrelor pretioase, fiind piatra cea mai ravnita de femeile din cele mai vechi timpuri. Motivele mele sunt muuulte: ✔este un simbol al perfectiunii, durabilitatii, intelepciunii, protejand integritatea familiei; ✔se gaseste rar si este indestructibil ✔iti da curajul de a-i intelege pe ceilalti pornind de la perfecta cunoastere de sine; ✔este logo-ul Fashion TV (simbolul international al modei, un limbaj universal care imi dezvolta creativitatea, sensibilitatea, simtul estetic) si… toate astea ma reprezinta!

Diamond quotes and tattooo and fashiontv

Ce spune lumea?

#1. “Cine te mai angajeaza cu tatuajele alea?” Daca m-as angaja ca stewardesa, tatuajul/tatuajele ar reprezenta o problema, insa nu e cazul. Fie vorba intre noi, nu mi-am tatuat nu stiu ce sarpe, sau nu stiu ce cap de mort, astfel incat sa nu ma angajeze nimeni. Reminder! CV-ul spune totul cand vine vorba de o angajare, iar pana acum, n-am avut nici o problema la capitolul asta, cu sau fara tatuaje!

#2. “Cum ai sa te mariti acum, imbracata in rochie de mireasa si cu tatuaje pe tine?” Aoleu, ca oi fi unica mireasa din lume cu tatuaj pe mana. In plus, e un diamant si se asorteaza cu inelul foarte bine, deci, nu vad o problema. Sa nu mai spun faptul ca, partenerul te iubeste asa cum esti si, in cazul meu, a fost, este si va fi PRO tatuaje (atata timp cat nu imi tatuez, again “cap de mort” sau nu mai stiu ce ciudatenie).

#3. “Iti dai seama cum o sa arati la batranete cu tatuajul ala?” Off, ce bine ar fi sa ajung la batranete sa regret lucrurile pe care le-am facut, decat pe cele pe care nu le-am facut! In plus, ce fata ar regreta o… “inimioara” sau un “diamant”?

Conteaza cine il face si cat de bine il face! Pentru cine isi doreste un tatuaj cu adevarat cool si reusit, il recomand cu toata inima pe Daniel Olteanu aka Bossy. Ii puteti vedea lucrarile AICI. A lucrat cu grija, rabdare, explicandu-mi fiecare pas din tot procesul. Toate ustensilele au fost complet noi si de calitate si le-a desfacut in fata mea, fara a lasa vreo urma de indoiala.

PS: Este adevarat ce se spune! Daca iti faci un tatuaj, ti se deschide apetitul pentru inca unul, inca unul si inca unul. Urmatoarele ar fi cele din colajul de mai jos. De asemenea, voi reveni cu un alt articol despre aceste minunatii, precum si o relatare mai pe larg a tuturor implicatiilor medicale, emotionale, fizice s.a.

MODELE DE TATUAJE MINIMALISTE_blog de moda Bacau

I never believed I could do it! Really! I wanted to do it a a bunch of times, but I never took it seriously! Not because I was scared, not because of the pain, not because of other people’s opinion! I didn’t do it because I thought it was just a  caprice, a faze and there is no point on listening to my instinct (this time only).

Why a heart tatto? For about 3-4 years I want a tattoo! I highlight it: one tattoo! That tattoo was a little heart on the right foot! I wanted it so bad when I first saw it, but I let the time pass in order to figure out if I would change my mind. It wasn’t the case because the desire to get it was bigger and bigger and, finally, I did it! Why a heart? Because the heart is the engine of one’s body and it communicates with the mind when it comes to a big decision. It’s a minimal tattoo. FYI, the heart-shaped tattoos were very popular among the soldiers from World War II, being the sole proof of the love for family and friends who carried them through the battlefield and the tattoo reminded them constantly the cause they were fighting for.

Why a diamond tattoo? On my right wrist, I made a diamond tattoo! A lot of people asked me the meaning of it. First of all, the diamond is well known as the king of all the gemstones, being the most wanted jewel by women all over the world. My reasons are: ✔is a symbol of perfection, longevity, wisdom, protecting the integrity of the family; ✔it’s rare and indestructible ✔it gives you the power to understand the other people because you understand yourself perfectly; ✔is the Fashion TV logo (the international symbol of fashion, a universal language of creativity, sensibility and aestethic sense) and… all that represent me!

What the others say?

#1. “Who will hire you with all the tattoos?” If I were a stewardese, the tattoo/the tattoos would be a problem, but that is not the case. Besides, I didn’t get a tattoo of a creepy snake or a skull, so that no one would hire me. Reminder! The resume is everything when it comes to a job interview, and I didn’t have any problem at all with that area, with or without the tattoos!

#2. “How can you get married and wear a wedding dress with those tattoos?” Come on, I am not the only bride in the world with a tattoo on the wrist. Besides, is a diamond and it fits with the ring perfectly, so, there is no problem at all. Not to mention the fact that the partner loves you for who you are and, in this case, it was, is and will be PRO tattoos (as long as I don’t get one with a skull or anything weird).

#3. “Do you realize how would you look when you get older?” Well, I want to grow old with the regret that I accomplished the things I wanted, instead of the things I desired to do and never got to do them! Besides, tell me one girl who would regret a… “heart” or a “diamond”?

It really matters who does it and the technique! Those of you who want a cool and well done tattoo, I recommend Daniel Olteanu aka Bossy. You can see his work of art HERE. He made it carefully, patiently, by explaining step by step the whole process. The tools were completely new and qualitative and he unwrapped them in front of me so that there will be no doubt.

PS: It’s true what they say! If you get a tattoo, it opens up the appetite for one more, another and another. The next ones will be the ones in the collage above. I will write another article on this topic and I will tell you the medical, emotional, physical implications in getting a tattoo and so on.

FYI: YES, they are real! No, I won’t regret them when I’am older!

Drept sa va spun, primul lucru pe care il fac atunci cand e vorba despre organizarea unui sejur/city-break este sa caut biletele de avion. De putine ori iau in considerare sa merg in tara, din simplul motiv al serviciilor dezamagitoare pe care le-am primit. Desi consider ca avem o tara frumoasa, serviciile lasa de dorit, prin urmare, acestea vin ca nuca in perete in cele cateva zile pe care ajungi sa le platesti mai mult decat daca ai pleca din tara.

Insa, croaziera din Delta Dunarii a fost o experienta extraordinara din nenumarate puncte de vedere. Am avut deosebita placere sa ajung sa o vizitez datorita teambuilding-ului organizat de compania la care lucrez. Peisajele sunt de-a dreptul mirifice, m-am relaxat total timp de 3 zile la bordul unui hotel plutitor ce aluneca usor pe canalele marginite de stuful galben si nuferi, printre sutele de pasari sosite.

Totul a inceput cu “Welcome on Board” intr-o zi perfecta de toamna, mai exact in luna octombrie 2014, la bordul Hotelului Plutitor SERANO****!

Acesta este dotat cu trei punti: pe prima punte sunt dispuse camerele, pe a doua punte restaurantul, terasa acoperita si Estrada pentru programe artistice; puntea a treia este o terasa deschisa dotata cu jacuzzi si sezlong-uri pentru peisagistica si plaja.

REPET: JACUZZI! Nothing better than that!

Croaziera a constat in traversarea bratului Sulina in aproximativ 24 ore de mars. Am plecat din Portul Tulcea, am navigat in aval pana pe Bratul Sulina, Crisan – oras Sulina – Dunarea Veche – Lacul Trei Iezere – Mila 23 – Lacul Fortuna (incredibil de frumos) – navigat in amonte Brat Tulcea. In tot acest timp, vasul s-a miscat intr-un ritm lent, astfel incat sa nu ti se faca rau, sa poti servi masa in conditii corespunzatoare. Ce-i drept si vremea a tinut cu noi, intrucat aceste ore de mars variaza in functie de conditiile climatice si hidrologice.

Bucataria a fost specifica – cu meniuri preparate din peste (ciorbe, saramura, icre, stiuca umpluta, crap la protap, morun s.a)… totul (aproape totul) se observa in fotografiile pe care le-am facut inainte sa se apuce colegii mei de devorat.

Trebuie sa va marturisesc faptul ca mancarea a fost absolut delicioasa, iar personalul a fost de 5 stele+. M-am asteptat sa ma satur de gustul de peste in cele 3 zile, insa nu a fost asa. Oricum, dupa tot ce am mancat acolo, orice preparat din peste mancat ulterior palea in fata acelora. Odata cu prima masa si prima cafea, cu totii ne-am reincarcat bateriile dupa un drum lung (masina+bac cu punct de plecare din Bacau) si am facut karaoke, am dansat, am ras intr-una, am facut fotografii, am jucat remi… toate acestea fiind asezonate cu “licoarea zeilor” – VINUL!

Zilele urmatoare am avut activitati specifice: am facut cu totii un bors de peste intr-o oala imensa, am avut petrecere cu barbecue si foc de tabara, am vizitat Lacul Fortuna in ambarcatiuni cu motor, au fost veritabile partide de pescuit intre colegii care au venit pregatiti, am servit cafeaua pe langa jacuzzi (in apararea mea, n-aveam constumul de baie la mine) si… birdwatching.

Asadar, am putut repera califarul alb, cormoranii, dumbraveanca, egretele, pelicanii, pescarusii cu capul negru, rata cu capul negru si rata pestrita. Sa fiu cinstita, nu ma pricep sa identific speciile pe care tocmai vi le-am spus, insa m-au ajutat colegele mele.

Mare mi-a fost dezamagirea cand a venit ora de plecare, insa cu siguranta vom merge si anul acesta, datorita impresiilor bune cu care am plecat de acolo! Sper ca v-am convins intr-un fel sau altul sa vizitati frumusetile Deltei Dunarii, cu prima ocazie. Cei dintre voi care ma cunosc, stiu ca nu as recomanda niciodata un loc/restaurant/hotel care nu mi-a placut.

PS: THEY HAD ME AT <JACUZZI>!

To be honest, the first thing I tend to do when I am in the mood of a city break is to book a flight to a destination abroad. I don’t really want to go here, because I’ve had so many bad experiences regarding the tourism services, that I don’t want to risk anymore. Although I believe that we have a beautiful country, the hospitality is poor, and you tend to pay a lot more than abroad.

But, the Danube Delta cruise was an amazing experience. I had the thrill to visit it, due to a team building with the company where I work. The landscapes are breathtaking, I got away for 3 whole days on board of a floating hotel.

Everything started with “Welcome on Board” on a perfect day of fall; to be exact, in October 2014, on board of The SERANO**** Hotel!

This floating hotel has 3 decks: on the first deck there were the rooms, on the second deck there were the restaurant, the terrace and the outside deck; on the third deck there were a Jacuzzi and some lounge chairs for landscape and sun bathe.

I REPEAT: A JACUZZI! Nothing better than that!

The cruise took 24 hours across Sulina. We started from The Tulcea Port, we sailed downstream on Sulina, Crisan – Sulina town – The Old Dunube – The 3 Iezers Lake – Mile no. 23 – The Fortuna Lake (very beautiful) – we sailed upstream on Tulcea. Meanwhile, the ship sailed slowly, so that you could eat properly. The weather was perfect, that’s why we sailed through the perfect climate.

The dishes had a main ingredient: fish (soups, brine, caviar, stuffed pike, sturgeon, among others)… you can see everything (almost everything) in the photos below.

I have to admit: the food was delicious and the staff behaved flawlessly. After those dishes, every cooked fish wasn’t that perfect because they do it better than anyone. After a long journey (by car from Bacau, by ferry), we had lunch and a coffee on the deck. Afterwards, we were ready to party: we did karaoke, we danced around, we laughed, we took pictures back and forth, we played lots of games… everything was better drinking WINE #myfavourite!

The following days, we had lots of activities: we made a big pot of soup for everyone on the boat, we had a barbeque in the nature with a campfire, we visited the Fortuna Lake on a motorboat, my colleagues went fishing, we served the coffee near the Jacuzzi (in my defense, I didn’t bring my swimsuit) and… birdwatching.

Therefore, I saw shelducks, cormorants, egrets, pelicans, seagulls, black ducks and many others. To be honest, I don’t really know them well, but I had some help in describing them here – my colleagues made me do it!

I was disappointed when we had to leave, but, for sure, we will come back this year, because we had a good time! I really hope that I convinced some of you to go visit the Danube Delta, the first chance you get. Those of you who know me personally, know that I wouldn’t recommend a place/restaurant/hotel that I didn’t enjoy.

Placa pentru indreptat parul este relativ usor de folosit si are chiar instructiuni de utilizare, insa, cine le citeste? De-a lungul timpului, fiind atenta la ritualul de pregatire ale prietenelor mele, inainte de iesi in oras, am observat ca aranjarea parului este ultimul lucru pe care il fac inainte de a iesi. Fie ca ti-l indrepti, fie ca iti faci bucle, ti-l impletesti sau ti-l prinzi in coc, vrei sa arate impecabil. Astfel, nu vei risca sa iti tragi bluza pe tine peste bucle, sa iti prinzi vreun fir in fermoar sau mai stiu eu ce. Deci, se justifica!

Dar nu se justifica omiterea pasilor premergatori acestui proces! (PARTEA 1)

GRESEALA #1: Nu aplici un produs de protectie inainte de utilizarea placii!

Ai face bine sa iti protejezi parul cand il expui la temperaturi ciudat de ridicate! Si spun asta pentru ca, uneori, exageram in reglarea temperaturii optime de utilizare (maxim temperatura 3 din 5). In magazinele de specialitate, vei gasi produse de protectie atat inainte cat si dupa utilizarea placii/ondulatorului! Singura problema ar fi sa nu uiti sa le aplici!

La indemnul unei prietene, am incercat un spray de par pentru protectie termica de la Kallos. insa m-a cam dezamagit! Nu dau vina pe produs, nu dau vina pe brand, doar ca nu suntem compatibili! Cea mai buna alegere a fost un ulei de par pe care l-am achizitionat de la Salonul de Infrumusetare Glamour (Multumesc, Gabriela Nasie!) –  Beauty Fluid (cu ulei de argan). Uleiul de argan este binecunoscutul elixir al frumusetii datorita caruia parul meu este multumit. Ba mai mult nu-l ingrasa dupa utilizare, il disciplineaza fir cu fir si miroase extraordinar.

GRESEALA #2: Selectezi temperatura cea mai mare!

Placile de par de pe piata ajung la o temperatura maxima de 250 grade. Asta nu inseamna ca trebuie sa o setezi la ultima treapta. E ca si cum ti-ai bate joc de parul tau! Consider ca e unul din aspectele forte ale unei fete si trebuie sa il tratam ca atare! Este indicat sa o setezi la 150 grade astfel incat sa nu ti-l arzi de la prima utilizare.

GRESEALA #3: Continui procedura chiar daca vezi ca iese fum!

OPRESTE-TE PENTRU NUMELE LUI DUMNEZEU! Daca vezi ca iese fum din par sau din placa, opreste-te… sigur ceva este in neregula. By the way, stii ca trebuie sa ai parul perfect uscat cand te indrepti cu placa, nu? Sincer sa va spun, nu prea cred in placile de par cu acea tehnologie cu micro climatizare rezistenta la incretire, special pentru parul umed. N-am incercat, insa sunt reticenta!

The hair straightener is pretty easy to use and it even has instructions for use, but who reads them? Over the years, I’ve watched carefully the beauty ritual of all my friends before going out and I noticed that fixing the hair is the last thing on the list. Either you choose to straighten it, or to curl it, to braid it or to do a quick bun, you want it to be perfect. That’s why you don’t want to ruin it by putting your shirt on, or to tangle some threads in the zipper. So, it’s the right thing to do!

What’s the wrong thing to do is to forget the steps before using the hair straightener/curling iron!

MISTAKE #1: You don’t use a spray protection before it!

You should protect your hair when you choose to expose it to higher temperatures! It’s the right thing to do because we tend to exaggerate with the temperature (choose the 3-rd temperature out of 5). If you go to a specialized shop, you will find special products that will help you to do that, before and after the use of the hair straightener or the curling iron. The only problem is not to forget to use them!

A friend of mine forced me to use a spray protection from Kallos, but it was a waste of time! I am not blaming the product itself, nor the brand, it’s just… we’re not compatible with each other! The best choice was the oil that I bought from Glamour Beauty Salon (Thank you, Gabriela Nasie!) – Echos Line Seliar Beauty Fluid (with argan oil) – . The argan oil is well-known as the beauty elixir and my hair is grateful for it. This product disciplines the hair without making it greasy and the smell is amazing!

MISTAKE #2: You choose the highest temperature!

The hair straighteners you can buy from the stores get up to 250 degrees. That doesn’t mean that you have to set the temperature to maximum. It’s a mockery to your own hair! I think that the hair is one of our best assets and, us girls, we have to be careful with it! The right thing to do is to set the temperature up to 150 degrees, so that you do not burn it!

MISTAKE #3: You go on with it, even if your hair starts to smell like smoke!

STOP IT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! If you see that your hair is burning, stop it… for sure something’s wrong! By the way, you know that your hair has to be dry when you use it, right? To be honest, I don’t really trust the hair straighteners with micro climate technology resistant to the frizz, especially for the wet hair. I haven’t tried it, but I am reluctant to it!

SALES… RESET AND RESTART! Blog de moda Bacau

[RO]                                                                                                                                                       [EN]

Perioada reducerilor (Reducerile de iarna Ianuarie-Februarie & Reducerile de vara Iulie-August) este un motiv bun pentru care scoatem toti banii pusi deoparte si recuperam pentru cat n-am cheltuit tot anul. De cele mai multe ori, nici nu tinem evidenta a ceea ce cheltuim si cel mai important, cat cheltuim.

Forfota din magazine incepe rapid si preturile rosii sunt la mare cautare. Avand in vedere tentatia tuturor pieselor reduse, indicat este sa fii sincera cu tine si sa cantaresti lucrurile inainte de a ajunge la casa de marcat. Am nevoie de această camasa? Am cu ce asorta fusta asta? Nu e prea scurta rochia pentru stilul meu? Poseta asta pare la fel cu cea pe care o am deja in dulap… DECIZII, DECIZII, DECIZII! Iata cateva aspecte care sper sa iti ridice niste semne de intrebare in ceea ce priveste shopping-ul in perioada de #sales!

#1. Dar parca nu-mi mai place!

Din propria experienta, dar si din simpla observatie a comportamentelor prietenelor mele, pantofii odata doriti si ulterior cumparati, parca nu mai prezinta acelasi interes ca la inceput (nu e o regula general valabila). I-ai admirat in vitrina, i-ai probat, ai vazut si alte variante de culori, alte modele, insa pretul este mult peste ceea ce poti oferi. Astfel, ajungi sa astepti perioada reducerilor mai mult ca orice, pentru a putea spera macar ca vor avea un pret rezonabil. Momentul mult asteptat a venit si ti i-ai cumparat! I-ai purtat o data, de doua ori si gata, nu-ti mai plac… nu exista o explicatie logica pentru care se intampla asta! De obicei, dorim ce nu putem avea, insa trebuie sa intelegem ca “aerul de nou” nu dureaza o vesnicie si pantofii mult doriti au iesit din “globul de cristal” in care i-ai plasat initial. Un alt aspect care te va descuraja si mai mult este faptul ca ii intalnesti pe strada din ce in ce mai des, intrucat admiratoarele aceluiasi model au procedat ca tine!

#2. Se poarta poncho-ul! Imi cumpar unul!

Nu! Nu! Nu! Nu e o idee buna sa iti cumperi piese vestimentare care nu te caracterizeaza doar pentru ca se poarta. Ai sa dai o groaza de bani pe un poncho, iar acasa vei realiza ca nu e conform stilului tau, nu gasesti contextul potrivit in care sa il porti, iti contureaza gresit silueta s.a. Cand esti intr-un magazin, cauta sa evaluezi posibilitatea de a purta in mai multe imprejurari acel articol, sa il transformi intr-o “piesa clasica” purtabila ani la rand. Exemple elocvente: ghete negre de tip biker, fusta creion intr-o culoare neutra, un pulover din casmir, o geaca de blugi, o geaca din piele, un tricou simplu alb, un trench bej. Acestea sunt piese care nu se vor demoda niciodata, de aceea vor costa mai mult decat ai estimat, ba ma mult, te sfatuiesc sa nu faci rabat la calitate. A nu se intelege ca la fiecare sesiune de cumparaturi trebuie sa cauti piesele clasice in devenire, doar articole versatile. Fa-ti de cap, insa nu arunca banii pe un “moft” doar pentru ca e in tendinte!

#3. Brandul garanteaza si calitatea!

Nu! Nu! Nu! Materialul si maniera in care e croit un articol vestimentar redau calitatea. De fapt, porti eticheta sau produsul in sine? Iti doresti o bucata de brand sau o piesa vestimentara adevarata? Daca esti norocoasa, le ai pe amandoua! Dupa cum am spus si in paragraful anterior, vei arata mai mult decat ridicol daca porti ceva care nu apartine stilului personal, dar are eticheta buna. Se va observa cu usurinta ca e un look fortat!

✔ Evalueaza tot ce iti trece prin mana cu sange rece!

✔ ✔ Ti-ai dori produsul respectiv daca nu ar mai fi la pret redus?

✔ ✔ ✔ Ti-ar atrage atentia daca ar fi un “no brand”?

The sales period (Winter Sales  January-mid February & Summer Sales  July-mid August) is a good reason to bring on the table all the money set aside and begin to catch up regarding the shopping. Most often, we don’t even keep track of what we spend during the entire year.

The fuss around the stores begins faster than expected and the red tags become the most important thing in the world. Given the temptation of all the discounts, the most important thing is to be honest with yourself and to weight things up before getting to the cash register. Do I really need this shirt? How can I match this skirt? Isn’t this dress too short for my style? This purse looks just the same with the one that I already have in my closet… DECISIONS, DECISIONS, DECISIONS! Here are some real aspects meant to raise you some questions marks regarding the shopping frenzy during the #sales period!

#1. But I no longer like it!

From experience and out of the simple observation upon my friend’s behaviors, the shoes that you want so badly, once bought, they become no longer in your radar afterwards. (not available for everyone). You’ve admired them in the display window, you try them on, you’ve seen them in different colors, but the price is way above what you can pay for. So, you wait for the sales period more than anything, just to buy them at the perfect price. You bought them! You wore them once or twice and then… you don’t really like them anymore! There is no logic explanation for that! Usually, we want the things we can’t get, but we have to understand that “the new vibe” isn’t going to last forever and those shoes become way above your interest. Here’s another thing: You will see them on the street style more often because… they were on sale and other girls took advantage of it just like you did!

#2. Poncho is the “it” clothing item! I should buy one!

No! No! No! It’s not a good idea to buy clothing items that don’t suit you just because they became a trend. You will buy the specific one, even pay o fortune for it, and you’ll realize that it’s not really your style, it highlights the worst in your figure, you can’t find a proper opportunity to wear it, and the list could go on. When you are in a store, you think and re-think before buying it: Is it suitable for more than one occasion? It’s a “classic” clothing item? Can I wear it next year? Here are some examples: the black biker boots, the neutral pencil skirt, a cashmere sweater, a denim jacket, a leather jacket, a basic white t-shirt, a trench. These are the clothing items that will never go out of style, that’s why it will cost you more that you expected, so I advise you not to compromise the quality. Just to be clear, it’s not mandatory to buy only classics every time you go shopping, just choose the versatile ones. Do your thing, but do not waste money on a “whim” just because is in trend!

#3. The brand guarantees the quality!

No! No! No! It’s the fabric and the tailoring that give the quality of a particular clothing item! Either you choose to wear the label or the product itself. In fact, what you wish for is a piece of the brand or a piece of clothing? If you’re lucky, you’ll get them both! As I said before, you will look ridiculous if you wear something that is not suitable for your style, even if it has the right label. The people will notice a strained outfit!

✔ Rate everything going through your hand in cold blood!

✔ ✔ Would you like that product if it would be at a reduced price?

✔ ✔ ✔ It would draw your attention if it would be a “no brand”?
