Life is...

"Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it."—Mother Teresa

Fashion trends: ruffle skirts & dresses

I haven't posted any fashion posts lately so I decided that it was about time to make one. :)
This summer ruffle (or layered) skirts & dresses are a must have for all fashionistas. I think they look pretty cute and if they have a floral print it's even better because that's definitely one of this summer's trends. They are VERY feminine, sexy and cute at the same time and of course very comfortable. They are also very easy to accessorize, some simple pumps or sandals and a long necklace and/or some bangles (bracelets) are enough to create an amazing a cool summer look.

Summer is here!

Thankfully summer is finally here! :-)

It's been a looooong Spring but it was a deffective/abnormal season taking into consideration the fact that it was SO cold and rainy for days and days. But if I recall, it's been a week now since it's been sunny and warm outside and not a single drop of rain. Yay! I'm so glad! People embrace the sun and well...your shorts, tops, dresses and flip-flops!

Summer wordrobe here I come!

Though I shouldn't be quite happy about this heat...since I have 3 more exams to take (I'm in in the middle of the exam session right now) and it's making me a bit sleepy and pretty much takes my energy away :)) but I hang in there, what else can I do? I do live solely on 'refreshments' such as cold water and ice cream but I can't complain about that since I'm a huge ice cream fan.

Either way I can't help but think of a beach walk, feeling the soft sand on my toes...or resting on the porch of a beautiful mountain resort, enjoying the fresh air and the breathtaking view. Oh how I wish I could do that right now but then reality breaks in and I find myself sitting at the desk, in my orange room, writing papers and studying for exams. Broken dreams...

What are you guys doing these days and what are your plans for the summer?

PS: from now on I will start writing posts in Romanian and I will be alternating them with English ones :)

Tall or short?

...What's the deal with people giving so much importance to height? I'm really curious. Do people point how short/tall you are because of a personal complexe or because they like to "make fun" of others? I don't know. I guess it depends on the situation...

I'm a pretty tall person (1.75 cm if you were curious) and I was the 3rd tallest person in my class, during highschool (one guy was around 1.85 cm and one girl was 1.80 cm). I remember once telling that girl (jokingly, obviously) that I was glad I wasn't so tall...and let me tell you, it didn't go well. It turned out that that girl was quite sensitive (more than I imagined) and she started asking me what was my point and then she started crying...I felt so guilty afterwards and I realized my mistake. Ever since, I don't make any remarks about people's height. I've learned my lesson. I hope you will do the same.

Even though my sister is almost 4 years older, she's a few cm shorter than me. I believe I inherited the height gene from my dad. Well....he's almost 1.90 and he's very thin as well. :P

I often get remarks where people like to point out the fact that I'm so tall (though I think I have a normal height) and they either ask why I didn't do modelling or if I play basketball (in the best cases) but they also point out that I'm going to have a problem in finding a tall partner (hmm...guys really tend to get shorter nowadays, don't they?) or that I might look weird among my shorter friends. My answer is: SO WHAT? Does height matter that much? I don't think so. My best friend is so much shorter than me...I've always had shorter friends. :)) That didn't make them less interesting or fun to hang out with. Actually I have only one tall friend hahaha and even though she's almost 1.80 cm, she enjoys wearing high heels. I admire that. I don't wear 'heels. I got used to wearing flats. I do think I'm tall enough like this. But I do wear them on special occasions.

The thing is, I've learned to not make any jokes or remarks about people's height because it might make them feel uncomfortable or it might offend them. People are just as awesome either way: tall or short. :)
