I`m so Boho...

Hey ladies! Today we`re gonna talk about the bohemian style also known as Boho chic. Boho chic is a mix between bohemian and hippie influences and it`s all about uniqueness. The bohemian style developed in the middle to late 1960`s but  was brought back to life by actress Sienna Miller in the early 2000`s. 

The way I see it, you need some key elements
  • long flowy skirts/ dresses with floral, exotic or patchwork prints, 
  • big fringe bags, comfy shoes (flat sandals or platforms), 
  • wood bracelets and statement necklaces

How to wear: Printed Pants

Hey ladies! There`s nothing more fun and eye-catching than a pair of printed pants. Printed pants may seem a little bit risky, but if you follow some basic rules, you won`t fail! Just wear them with a solid color top and let the pants do all the fashion work! You must have them!

Photograph printed leggings
Just remember ladies: Leggings are not pants, so try wearing an oversized top to balance things up. 

Galaxy printed leggings
I created this outfit thinking at a girls night out in the club. I wanted to add a "rock`n`roll" touch to this outfit by putting the leather vest and those buckle boots. When using bold combinations, try to keep it simple with the accessories.

Floral printed pants
This outfit is perfect for daily wear. You can wear it to work (if the dress-code is "relaxed"), to college or just on an afternoon spent with friends. As you can see I kept it simple and clean with the other items and let the pants stand out.

Slouchy tribal printed pants
When wearing harem or slouchy pants, you have to keep a balance.  Wear them with fitted tops!

Fusta maxi: piesa must-have a verii!

EN: Hey ladies!  So here I am with a new outfit post! This is actually the first time that I`m wearing a maxi skirt! I finally found one that I really like and that has the lenght that I want! The maxi skirt is very figure flattering especially if you are a curvy girl and simply don`t have a model-type body (like me :D). This type of skirt really emphasizes your waist and makes your legs look longer. Wear it with heels/ platforms and u`ll look even more fabulous! 

RO: Buna fetelor! Am revenit cu un nou outfit! Este prima data cand port o fusta maxi si pot sa spun ca sunt super happy pentru ca am gasit`o pe aceasta pe care o ador si care chiar are lungimea pe care mi`o doream. Ce am mai vazut pana acum, ori erau mai scurte putin de glezne, ori erau exact cum imi doream dar cam scumpe.
Fusta maxi de genul acesta, cu banda aceea in talie ne avantajeaza foarte mult pe noi fetele care nu avem exact 90-60-90 (sau mai putin). Iti accentueaza talia si automat face ca picioarele sa para mai lungi. Purtata cu tocuri/ platforme e si mai si!

EN: None of the items that I`m wearing here are designer ones or from famous-known stores. 
I think that if you have a little bit of style sense and you know what flatters you, you can look good in "unknown-label" clothes. Do you agree with me on this?

RO: Niciun articol de mai sus nu apartine vreunui brand cunoscut! (Doar colierul este de la Meli Melo).
Sunt de parere ca daca ai macar putin simt estetic si stii ce ti se potriveste, poti arata super si in haine "anonime", cum imi place mie sa spun. :D Sunteti de acord cu mine?

Cum sa-ti faci singura bratari charm

EN: Hey girls! Inspired by the famous friendship bracelets, I wanted to make some charm bracelets of my own. I wanted to make more so that I can wear them all together or to give some to my friends.

RO: Buna fetelor! Fiind inspirata de faimoase bratari ale prieteniei, am vrut sa`mi fac singura propriile 'Charm Bracelets'. Am vrut sa fac mai multe pentru a le purta impreuna sau pentru a le da prietenelor mele.

EN: First of all here`s what you need:
RO: In primul rand, uite de ce aveti nevoie:
  • Thick thread | Ata  mai groasa
  • Charms (pendants) | Pandantive
  • Scrissors | Foarfece
  • Jewelery clasps | Incuietori
  • Plier | Patent

EN: First, gather all your charms together.
RO: Mai intai, adunati`va toate pandantivele :P

EN: "Destroy" some old necklaces / bracelets that you`re sure you won`t miss and use the clasps from them.
RO: Distrugeti  niste coliere/ bratari mai vechi carora sunteti sigure ca n`o sa le duceti dorul si folositi incuietorile acestora.

EN: Get those thick threads, measure your rist and cut!
 RO: Luati ata aceea groasa, masurati`va incheietura si taiati!
EN: Put the thread around the clasp and tie a very tight knot for security. (While I was searching for more clasps, I found some white thread and made the first bracelet with it).

RO: Innodati foarte strans ata de inelul incuietorii. (Cat timp cautam mai multe incuietori, am gasit ata alba si am zis sa fac prima bratara cu aceasta).

EN: Do the same with the other end 
RO: Faceti acelasi lucru si cu celelalt capat

EN: Then put a charm or how many you want on the thread, do the same knot as you did with the clasps, and here you go!
RO: Dupa care puneti pandantivul (sau pandantivele), faceti exact cum ati facut cu incuietoarea, si ...gata! 

EN: The final result...Tones of Charm Bracelets!! :))
RO: Rezultatul final... Muuuuuulte bratari!! :)) 

EN: Then I decided to make a Braided Charm Bracelet following this tutorial!
RO: Mai tarziu am gasit un tutorial despre cum sa faci bratari de genul acesta, dar impletite si m`am pus pe treaba. Rezultatul: 

Do you have Charm Bracelets?
 I want to see them!! You can upload pictures on my fb page, right HERE

Get Fit for Summer

Hey ladies! May is here and soon you gotta put on that bikini and strut on the beach! And I know you wanna look good  under the sun! I want to share to you my workout and lifestyle tips. 
Yes...lifestyle tips ladies! Don`t look at them as a diet...it`s a lifestyle change and you gotta stick with it as long as you can!

  • First of all, the oldest one, drink lots and lots of water! If possible 2 l / day. If you're hungry, you can have a glass of water, it has zero calories and it helps to fill your stomach and suppress your appetite.
  • Portion control! Try to eat more small meals throughout the day, rather than one larger meal. I eat at every 3 - 4 hours.
  • If you don`t go at the gym (like me), try to do at least 30 minutes of exercise at home, everyday.
  • Keep your eyes on the prize! Set you goal and stick to it! If you want, write it down and put it in a place where you can always see it. (It really works)!
  •   Don`t skip breakfast! It`s the most important meal of the day!
  • 1 or 2 hard eggs served with a slice of toasted bread.
  • Low fat cheese served with a tomato and cucumber salad (add a pinch of salt, pepper, olive oil and the juice from a 1/2 lemon). Optional - a slice of toasted bread.
  • 1 scrambled egg served with a slice of toasted bread and a tomato.

 You can eat whatever you want if you know you can control yourself from eating a whole chocolate! If not:
  • No chocolate! If possible - NO SUGAR!
  • No soda
  • No white bread
  • No eating ~ 3 hours before bed
If you want some snacks between meals, here are some healty ones: 
  • Fruits. My fav combination: grapes with graham crackers! But you can replace the grapes with apple slices, pear slices  or what other fruit you like.
  • 1/3  store-bought trail  mix  with raisins, nuts and almonds.
  • Raw vegetables
  • And...if you really really really want some chocolate, try having the diet ones, because they don`t have sugar! And they are very good! You can barely notice the difference!

And for the exercise part, here`s what I usually do:
  •  Don`t forget the warm up to avoid soreness!
  • Start with at least 20 minutes of running.
  • Continue with 20 squats | 60 seconds of breating and relaxing | 20 crunches | 60 seconds of planking | 40 air bicycles | 60 seconds of planking | at least 20 leg lifts for each leg | 60 seconds of planking
  • 10 minutes of cardio (running, kickboxing or whatever you like)
  • 5 - 10 minutes of stretching also to avoid soreness!
Note: Also if you have other exercise `moves`, feel free to include them in this workout routine. 

You can`t do exercise without music! Here`s my favourite workout mix:
  • Christina Aguilera - Not myself tonight (tooMOOSE remix)
  • Lady Gaga - Marry the night
  • Radio Killer - Be Free
  • Enrique Iglesias ft. Pitbull - I like how it feels
  • DJ Pauly D ft. Dash - Night of my life
  • Rihanna - Where have you been
  • Beyonce - Move your body
  • David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj - Turn me on
  • David Guetta & Chris Willis ft. Fergie & LMFAO - Getting over
  • Basshunter - All I ever wanted
  • The Underdog Project - Summer Jam (Eric Chase Edit)

Don`t forget ladies, you are gorgeous no matter what!

Current obsession: Animal print

EN: Hey girlz! I hope you had an amazng weekend! I don`t have much to say about today`s post...just that it was very very sunny and gorgeous day so I decided to go with my mom in the park. At first I wanted to put on a pair of jeans, a t-shirt and go..but it was so hot outside (love it!). So I wore this leopard maxi dress that I got last summer from H&M, tied up a shirt cuz the dress has spaghetti straps (and it`s not yet Summer, sadly), this really cute yellow clutch for a pop of colour and many bracelets :)) Hope you like it!

RO: Buna fetelor! Sper ca ati avut parte de un sfarsit de saptamana superb! Nu am foarte multe de spus despre post`ul de azi...doar ca fiind o zi asa frumoasa si insorita, eu si mama, am zis sa mergem putin prin parc. La inceput ma gandeam sa `arunc` o pereche de blugi , un tricou si sa plec..dar imi era prea cald. Asa ca mi`am luat aceasta rochie maxi pe care am cumparat`o vara trecuta de la H&M, am innodat o camasa pentru ca rochia are bretele subtiri (si nu e inca vara, din pacate), aceasta gentuta galbena pentru a aduce o pata de culoare tinutei si muuulte bratari :)) Sper sa va placa!

Kisses, B
