B.O.T.W. - Deeana Lee - Sweet surrender/Placeri interzise

Ok, I see that you have no intention of leaving me a comment for my book reviews...after finishing my last book ( Danielle Steel - Johnny Angel), I started another book. But because I had a busy schedule, haven't finished it. So I'm writing about a book read a long time ago. It's Deeana Lee - Sweet Surrender.
It's still romance, but erotic romance.
Ok, vad ca nu aveti nici cea mai mica intetie sa imi lasati un comentariu pentru review-urile de carte...dupa ce am terminat ultima carte ( Danielle Steel - Johnny Angel), am inceput o alta. Dar pentru ca am avut un program foarte incarcat si am cazut lata in pat in fiecare seara, nu am terminat-o, asa ca va voi scrie despre o carte pe care am citit-o acum aproape un an. Deeana Lee - Placeri interzise. Carte romanatica, dar erotica in acelasi timp. 

Lauren is an artist, she paints...naked male body's and she moves to Boston for a clean start in her professional and personal life. Since she left her town, Lauren had the feeling that someone is following her and soon a thief got inside the hotel room and search through her things. Connor, a sexy man, former military and secret agent, was hired to be her bodyguard. From the first time he saw her, Connor felt some sort of an attraction to her. The house, that the art gallery in Boston, provided for Lauren was hit by thieves. Apparently, in the basement is a safe room, in which the former artist that stayed there hid a very expensive piece of art. From the first robbery 'til the end, there will be casualties, dead bodies, blood and running. But Lauren feels safe in the arms of Connor, the man that is her bodyguard and lover, all together. Believe me, that the hot scenes will make you want to read it again, just to be sure that you read it right. :)
I don't want to reveal the sex scenes, because I might make them boring, so now you'll have to read the book if you are curios.
Lauren este o artista care picteaza...trupuri masculine goale si care se muta in boston pentru ca a fost angajata de o galerie de arta sa isi expuna operele si pentru ca avea nevoie de un inceput nou si in viata personala. De cand a plecat din vechiul oras, Lauren simtea ca este urmarita. Ajunsa la un hotel in Boston, pana cand casa in care urma sa stea era amenajata, tanara a fost jefuita. Galeria de arta l-a angajat pe Connor sa ii fie bodyguard - un fost agent secret si militar. de cand a vazut-o, lui Connor i s-au cam aprins calcaiele dupa ea, desi nu voia sa recunoasca. Dupa ce s-a mutat in casa pe care i-a oferit-o galeria, Lauren a fost iar jefuita. La finalul cartii aflam ca in acea casa, in subsol, a fost ascunsa o opera foarte valoroasa si veche, pentru care hotul a facut orice, pana si crima. Nu te atrage in mod special investigatia pe care o fac politistii, ci felul in care Connor si Lauren se joaca de-a soarecele si pisica. De multe ori, reciteam unele paragrafe sa ma asigur ca ceea ce citeam, chiar era scris, pentru ca te poate soca putin vocabularul. :) 
Nu vreau sa va descriu scenele de sex - pentru ca amor/dragoste nu pot sa-i spun ca nu este, asa ca va las pe voi sa cititi cartea sa vedeti cu ochii vostri.

If you are to shy, let me know in a private message what you think about the book...I have more titles for you if you like this kind of books.
Daca sunteti timide, trimiteti-mi un mesaj privat dupa ce terminati de citit cartea si va mai dau titluri, mai am. :)

Check out Ana's book of the week, too.

B.O.T.W. - Danielle Steel - Jonny Angel/ Ingerul pazitor

Another Thursday, another book.
O alta zi de Joi, o alta carte a saptamanii.

Johnny is a young athlete, in his senior year, a boy that managed to split his time between his family, practice, school and his girlfriend and her family. The prom is here and the party was beautiful, but the road home is not as pretty as it should be. Johnny's car is involved in a car crash and he's the only one that dies. His girlfriend and the other passengers have only minor cuts. The news of his death makes the whole community tremble.
Johnny este un tanar sportiv, elev in ultimul an de liceu, un baiat care isi imparte tot timpul intre familia lui, antrenamente, scoala si iubita lui si familia ei. Balul de absolvire este aici, petrecerea este minunata, dar drumul inapoi acasa nu este la fel de frumos. Masina lui Johnny este implicata intr-un accident si el moare. Iubita lui si ceilalti pasageri scapa cu rani minore. Vestea mortii lui cutremura toata comunitatea.

Before the accident, his family was tearing apart and now they grow even more further apart. Five years ago, Jim - his dad and his younger brother - Bobby were involved in a car crash and the little boy, 4 at the time got so scared that he stopped talking. Since then, Jim drank every day. Charlotte, Johnny's little sister, is a great baseball player, who's only desire is to have her father's approval. Since Johnny died, Alice, his mom, stopped taking care of her and she got admitted with ulcer.
Si inainte de accident familia baiatului era destramata, dar parca acum lucrurile se agraveaza. Acum cinci ani, Jim-tatal baiatului, si Bobby-fratele lui mai mic au avut un accident de masina si de atunci baiatul cel mic nu mai vorbeste. Din acea zi, Jim a inceput sa bea zilnic. Charlotte, fiica mijlocie a familiei, este o jucatoare fenomenala de baseball, care isi doreste ca tatal ei sa o accepte asa cum il accepta pe Johnny. De la moartea sa, mama lui, Alice a incetat sa mai aiba grija de ea si a fost internata in spital cu ulcer.

During her stay in the hospital, she has received a great gift: she got to spend some time in the company of Johnny's ghost. The boy knew that he was sent back to put in order a few things, but he wasn't told exactly what. After he got back, he did miracles: helps Becky to get over his death and fall back in love, helps Pam - Becky's mom, to fall in love and get married, helps Bobby talk again and makes Jim to accept and get close to Charlotte.
In timpul pe care l-a petrecut in spital, a primit un cadou: acum ii poate vedea fantoma lui Johnny. Baiatul stie ca poate sta doar pana isi termina de lasat lucrurile in ordine, chiar daca nu stie inca despre ce e vorba. De la reintoarcea lui, a facut adevarate minuni: a ajutat-o pe Becky sa treaca peste moartea lui si sa se indragosteasca din nou, o ajuta pe mama ei sa se indragosteasca si sa se casatoreasca, il ajuta pe fratele lui mai mic sa vorbesca din nou si il face pe Jim sa se apropie de Charlotte.

On the first Christmas night, Alice and Johnny realize that their time together is up and say goodbye in tears. But not before the boy gives his mom a small box and say to open it only after he's gone. The present was a gift that nobody was expecting, but was received with open heart!
In prima seara de Craciun, Alice si Johnny simteau ca e vremea sa isi ia ramas bun. dar inainte sa plece, baiatul ii da mamei sale un cadou si o roaga sa il deschida numai dupa ce el pleaca. Putin mai tarziu, Alice deschide cutia si vede cadou la care nimeni nu se astepta, dar care a fost primit cu bucurie.

Note: I shed some tears in the end! This is a story full of emotions that gave me lots of goose bumps! I left out a lot of details, so find this book and read it! It's worth the time.
Nota: Am plans putin la sfarsit! E o poveste foarte emotionanta care mi-a facut pielea gaina. Sa stiti ca am lasat pe dinafara o multime de detalii, asa ca va trebui sa luati cartea sa o cititi!

Check out Ana's book of the week, maybe you'll like it!
Sa treceti si pe la Ana sa vedeti cartea saptamanii ei!

Please let me know in a comment what you think about this story! Thank you!

Getting ready for Christmas - 3 in 1

Hello, lovelies!
This post will have the next three manicures for Elsa's collaboration. If you want to see the work of the other girls, check it out here.

My manicures from today are Under the mistletoe, Red and Gold and Blue and Silver.

This nail design has a short story: under the mistletoe you hug and kiss the one you love and you are happy because he hugged and kissed you back. On the thumb nail I have the image of a sky full of stars and snowflakes, because mistletoe is a winter plant, if I may say so. :) 
Products used: Maybelline Colorama, Gabrini Summer Edition M118, Golden Rose Paris 151, Classics Glamour 178, Avon Nailwear Pro Sunshine, Gabrini 3D 02 and Paris Memories 201.

This is just a simple gradient manicure, using Avon Nailwear Pro Ruby Slippers, Golden Rose Care+Strong 143 and Paris Memories 201.

The base color for this manicure is Golden Rose Rich Color 20, over it it's Medusa crackle 03 and top coat Paris Memories 201.

I hope you like my designs and check back later for more Christmasy nail art.

T.P.A. - 15. Nautical nails

Even though yesterday we had the biggest snow of the season...a quarter of an inch :) and then melted in half an hour, this week's group challenge was to make a nautical inspired manicure. Apparently, my neurons melted or got short-circuited so I spent the whole week trying to come up with a decent design. And this is what I came up with. Not really one of my best designs, but it works and I'm not missing a theme of the challenge.
Chiar daca ieri am avut parte de prima zapada serioasa a acestui 5 mm si s-a topit intr-o jumatate de ora, saptamana asta avem o tema nautica pentru unghiile noastre. Din cate am observat, neuronii mei s-au topit sau scurt-circuitat pentru ca mi-am batut capul toata saptamana in cautarea unui model cat de cat dragut. Si asta mi-a iesit. Nu e cel mai frumos model al meu, dar merge si ma bucur ca nu am ratat tema saptamanii.

Check out the other manicures:

BOTW: Fern Michaels &Cathy Lamb - Holiday Magic/ O dorinta de Craciun

I always loved reading if it was not mandatory. When I was in school, I hated being told what to read, many times I read what others had to say about a book than actually reading it. :) bad girl, I know.
My go to category is romance, but I also like reading chick-lit and crime and mystery. I wrote at the beginning of my blog about two books, The Nearly-Weds by Jane Costello and Poor Little Bitch Girl by Jackie Collins.

Intotdeuna mi-a placut sa citesc, mai ales cartile pe care nu trebuia sa le citesc. In timpul scolii, preferam sa citecs rezumatele cartilor pe care trebuia sa le citesc, pentru ca nu imi place sa mi se spuna ce sa citesc. Sunt o fata rea, stiu.
Imi plac romanele de dragoste, chick-lit si crima si mister. La inceputul blogului am scris despre doua din cartile pe care le-am citit la momentul respectiv, Aproape casatoriti de Jane Costello si Celebritate de Jackie Collins.

Yesterday, I talked with a friend of mine about starting a project for our blogs. A new category called Book of the Week :) and today is the premiere. We decided to write our own summary about our latest read books...romance books. This past week I read Fern Michaels & Cathy Lamb - Holiday Magic. 
The book is actually two short stories about Christmas magic and what can happen around this holiday.

Ieri vorbeam cu o prietena despre carti si ne-am hotarat sa incepem un proiect nou pe blogurile noastre. In fiecare saptamana vom scrie despre ultima carte pe care am citit-o si se va numi Book of the Week sau Cartea Saptamanii. Azi e premiera! O sa scriem rezumatul nostru pentru ultima carte cele mai multe ori, va fi vorba de romane de dragoste. In saptamana ce a trecut am citit o carte frumoasa cu doua povesti de dragoste minunate, iar actiunea se intampla in jurul Craciunului. Cartea se numeste O dorinta de Craciun si este scrisa de Fern Michaels si Cathy Lamb. De fapt sunt doua povesti separate, fiecare scrisa de un autor si puse in aceasi coperta.

Part 1 - Holiday Magic by Fern Michaels  

Stephanie, a single mom of two lovely girls-Ashley 10 years old and Amanda 7 years old, divorced her husband because of the abused caused by alcohol, works in a shop that sells ski equipment. After divorcing her husband, she had to stay in a shelter for abused victims with her daughters until she could afford rent. She found a small apartment through a dear friend of hers, Melanie, who was the girls babysitter, as well. Her biggest dream is to buy a house with three bedrooms for her family, but things won't always go as planned. Her boss, Patrick, asked Stephanie out a few times, but when he started having feelings for her, he chickened out. A few years ago, his niece died because of a stupid accident and since then he was afraid of committing because anytime can happen something bad. He was not going to get committed in a relationship.
But everything starts to change the day that Stephanie's daughters get lost on the ski slope near the shop. Everybody was looking for the girls, including Stephanie, Melanie, the police and the mountain rescuers, but the one that found them was Patrick. The same day, there was the ceremony of the Christmas tree in their town and the girls wanted to see the lights turning on the tree. Of course, when Stephanie and her daughters arrived, Patrick was there and he helped them see the light from higher ground, with the help of a crane. Earlier that day, Stephanie and Patrick got in fight because she closed the shop earlier to take the girls back home and Patrick let her stay home for a hole month without a paycheck. This meant that she couldn't get the load from the bank and she can't buy the house anymore. 
On Christmas Eve, she has Patrick by her side and the deed of the house in her hand. Secret Santa you might say...or Christmas Magic. Find out the details I left out, it would take about two hours to read this part :) A bed-time story for happy dreams!

Stephanie este mama singura pentru 2 fete - Ashley de 10 ani si Amanda de 7 ani, divortata pentru ca sotul ei o batea de fiecare data cand se imbata, vanzatoare la un magazin cu echipamente de ski intr-un complex turistic. Dupa divort, a fost nevoita sa stea intr-un adapost pentru femeile abuzate cu fetele ei, dar mai incolo si-a gasit un apartament de inchiriat pentru ea si fetele ei cu ajutorul unei bune prietene, Melanie, care era si bona fetelor.Visul ei cel mai mare era sa cumpere o casa cu trei dormitoare pentru familia ei, dar lucrurile nu merg mereu cum ar trebui. Stephanie si seful ei, Patrick au iesit de cateva ori impreuna, dar de la un moment dat, acesta s-a distantat de ea. In urma cu ceva timp, nepoata lui a murit intr-un accident stupid si de atunci el s-a hotarat sa nu se mai implice in relatii pentru ca nu vrea sa sufere din cauza unui accdient. Dar lucrurile incep sa se schimbe cand fetele lui Stephanie se pierd pe partia de ski de langa complex si el este cel care le gaseste pe poznase. Pentru ca erau ude si obosite, Stephanie inchide magazinul si vrea sa le duca pe fete acasa, dar Patrick o anunta ca poate sta o luna acasa, in concediu fara salar.Mai tarziu, in aceasi zi, and fetele vor sa vada aprindere luminilor pe pomul de Craciun din oras, Patrick este cel care le urca intr-o cabina de macara si le ofera o priveliste minunata a pomului de Craciun, crezand ca poate sa isi ceara scuze de la Stephanie, dar aceasta nu il prea baga in seama. Faptul ca ea a ramas somera o luna, insemna ca isi poate pierde imprumutul de la banca si nu isi va putea achita avansul pentru casa mult visata. Dar Ajunul Craciunului o prinde in compania lui Patrick si Mos Craciun ii face cadou actul de proprietate al casei pe care si-o dorea. Cine e Mosul? Nu va pot spune...cititi cartea. ;)

Part 2 - A merry Christmas by Cathy Lamb

Meredith is a very busy woman, she is raising her sisters kids, whom she abandoned a few years ago - Sarah - a rebel young lady and Jacob - a very shy boy. She left her work in New York and moved Montana where she started a business in tourism, running a bed&breakfast. Everybody in town knows her because she wears colorful cowboy hats and is a tomboy. One day, while she was drinking a coffee, a man hits on her. Annoyed, she starts to argue with him, but a muscle man enters the cafe and takes her side, even though she doesn't want him to. Logan is a charming man, who feels attracted to Meredith, and the felling is mutual. A few years ago, Meredith had a terrible accident and she thinks she will never be able to get involved with a men. Why? You must read the book to find out why. The two of them have so many things in common, it's crazy. But she decides to end the relationship even before it starts. Because Logan is stubborn, he doesn't give up. He gets involved in the show Meredith is organizing for Christmas at the theater, just to be around her and prove he has feeling for her. Because Meredith insists not to get involved, Logan leaves town. Each of them try to get over, but they can't. Eventually, the Christmas spirit makes a miracle and she tells him what her problem is...and he already knew about it. How? It's in the book. Anyway, everything is fine in the end.

Meredith este o femeie foarte ocupata, creste copii pe care sora ei i-a abandonat acum cativa ani - Sarah, o domnisoara rebela si Jacob, un baiat tare timid. Si-a last viata si job-ul din New York si s-a stabilit in Montana unde si-a deschis o pesiune bed&breakfast. Toata lumea in oras o stie pentru ca poarta cele mai colorate palarii de cowboy si este baietoasa. Intr-una din zile, in timp ce isi lua cafeaua, un turist s-a dat la ea destul de insistent, dar Meredith a stiut sa-i tina piept... pana cand ii sare in ajutor Logan, un barbat musculos si atragator, caruia ii place de ea. Si sentimentul este mutual, dar ea nu recunoaste, pentru ca in urma cu multi ani a avut un accident in ura caruia si-a pierdut increderea in sine si in frumusetea ei si nu a mai avut o relatie de atunci. Ce s-a intamplat in accident veti afla in carte. Cei doi au atat de multe in comun, incat te intrebi de ce Meredith pune capat relatie inainte ca ea sa inceapa. Pentru ca Logan este destul de incapatanat sa ii arate ca nu doreste doar o aventura, se implica in spectacolul de Craciun pe care Meredith ii pregateste la teatrul din oras. Pentru ca ea tot insista sa nu se implice, Logan pleaca din oras, cei doi incerca sa treaca peste sentimente lor, dar nu reusesc. Pana la urma, spiritul Craciunului face o minune si ea ii spune problema ea....problema pe care el o stia. De unde? Scrie in carte. Ideea e ca totul e bine cand se termina cu bine.

You should go and check out Ana's book of the week, maybe her's is your weekend's book to read.
Ar trebui sa treceti si pe la Ana, sa vedeti ce carte a citit in ultima saptamana, poate e cartea potrivita pentru voi pentru acest sfarsit de spatamana.

We really want to have some feedback from you, in comments if possible, but only real thoughts. If you don't like romance, tell us what kind of books do you like and recommend us something to read, maybe next week, your book will be reviewed here or on Ana's blog.
Ne dorim sa primim feedback din partea voastra, preferabil sub forma de comentarii, dar pareri sincere. Daca acest tip de carte nu e pe placul vostru, sugerati o carte pe care sa o citim si poate saptamana viitoare, cartea voastra va fi pe blogul meu sau al Anei.. :)

Getting ready for Christmas - 2.Glitter overload

hihihi... this must be the easiest and toughest theme of this challenge. :)
When there is glitter, it' some sort of overload, right? I mean you won't put just a little bit of glitter, right?
You should have seen me with all my glitters - polish and powder - around me, thinking what should I do to make something great showing? I have decided for two things:

hihihi....asta ar trebui sa fie cea mai usoara si mai grea tema din colaborare :)
Pentru ca acolo unde e sclipici, este oarecum din abundenta, nu? Cine pune doar putin sclipici? pfu!
Trebuia sa ma vedeti inconjurata de sclipici - oje si pudre, gandindu-ma cu ce sa va incant privirile. Si am facut doua chestii:

Gabrini 386 + CaiRuo 22

Golden Rose Care+Strong 104 + white&green powder glitter

You should go and check out the other nails on Elsa's Facebook page. The girls have amazing manicures and make-up.

Ar trebui sa mergeti pe pagina de Facebook a Elsei sa vedeti ce manichiuri si machiaje superbe au celelalte fete.

T.P.A. Challenge - 14. Vintage nails

Ok, another Saturday, another collaboration. And today we have vintage nails. I searched for inspiration on the internet and saw only complicated designs, so I stopped on a more easy approach.
A few days ago I made myself some stencils of a cameo, because it's easier to start another cameo on a piece of plastic than erasing the whole nail and start over.

For the background I used Rimmel London 60 seconds - 500 Caramel Cupcake, applied some nail tape from Cupio and added a coat of baby blue from Gabrini N12. Then I made the roses (they are roses, not blobs :) ) with a dotting tool using Gabrini M118 (dark pink) and 309 (light pink) and the leaves with a new green in my collection Golden Rose Paris 151.

For the cameo I used white nail polish from Gabrini 3D - 02 and black from Classics Glamour - 178. Underneath the design I used a laced sticker because I felt the nail was incomplete, it seems better.

After everything was done, I applied 2 coats of top coat, Gabrini 300.
And that was it. I have to admit, the other girls did a better job than me! If you don't believe me, go check out their designs! :)

Get Ready for Christmas - day 1

A few days ago I found a very pretty blog about nails - Like a Candy Shop. Elsa started a challenge and I'm more than happy to be a part of this. It's called Get Ready For Christmas and the poster looks like this:

Acum cateva zile am gasit un blog foarte frumos despre unghii si nu numai - Like a Candy Shop. Elsa a dat drumul unei provocari/colaborari la care sunt mai mult decat fericita sa iau parte. Se numeste Get Ready for Christmas si posterul arata cam asa:

For the first day, I've decided to go with a collage of Christmasy things. :)
Pentru prima zi am ales sa fac un colaj de chestii de Craciun. :)

You can see what the other girls did for the first day by checking out the Facebook album of the challenge here.
Puteti vedea ce au facut celelalte fete pentru prima zi de colaborare intrand in albumul special creat pe Facebook aici.

Review - Cupio: Top Coat Matte

Hello. A few weeks ago, I bought a mattifier top coat from Cupio. Never heard about the company until then, but I gave it a try. It stayed in my top and base coat drawer and never saw the day light...until now.
As base colors I used Moyra nr.20 - a dark red with golden reflexes, Golden Rose Care+Strong nr.210 - purple with golden reflexes and no.124 - a shimmery pink, Orkide nr.276 - blue and Gabrini Diamond D53 - green with golden reflexes. After they dried, I applied the top coat. Bummer! It doesn't work almost at all. The only color that went a little bit matte, was Moyra.

Salut. Acum cateva saptamani mi-am cumparat o oja matifianta de la Cupio. Nu auzisem de aceasta firma pana atunci, dar am hotarat sa-i dau o sansa. Top coat-ul a stat in sertarul lui de cand l-am cumparat si pana acum, fara sa vada lumina zilei.
Ca si culori de baza am folosit Moyra 20 - un visiniu c reflexii aurii,  Golden Rose Care+Strong 210 - un mov cu particule aurii si 124 - un roz sidefat, Orkide 276 - albastru si Gabrini Diamond - D53 - un verde cu reflexii aurii. Dupa ce s-au uscat ojele, am aplicat top coat-ul. Buuuuu! Nu s-a vazut o diferenta prea mare. Singura culoare care s-a matifiat putin a fost Moyra.

Do you have Cupio nail products? If so, are you pleased with them?
Voi aveti produse Cupio pentru unghii? Daca da, ce parere aveti despre ele?

T.P.A. group challenge: 12+13 - Inspired by bows and inspired by cupcakes

Ok, I said yesterday that I was in a downward spiral with my inspiration, but I'm back! That's why today you have two nail designs in one post. I wanted to write the bow part a few days ago, but figured that today is a better day for science :)
The bow design was made on Tuesday, so that's why I am late with it. And because I had to make swatches for my newest polishes.

Ok, va spuneam ieri ca nu am prea avut inspiratie sa scriu, dar mi-am revenit! De aceea astazi aveti doua manichiuri intr-o postare. Am vrut sa fac postare separata pentru fiecare, dar m-am gandit sa fie un cadou pentru voi, doi in unu. :)
Modelul cu funda l-am facut marti, de aceea am intarziat si nu l-am postat sambata. Si pentru ca am avut de facut swatch-uri la noile mele oje. :)

For this nail design I used:
Ce am folosit pentru acest design:

Farmec nail polishes

In this past weeks, I've gone through a rough period because I had no inspiration to write and I feel like I've let you down. I hope that you won't yell at me :( I'm back now and I have a review for you. Last week I went at a meeting of beauty bloggers in Cluj-Napoca and came back with a buch!!!! of gifts. Among those gifts, we got 5 nail polishes from the latest autumn-winter nail polish collection of the co-host of the meeting, Farmec, a Romanian cosmetics company.

In ultimele saptamani am trecut printr-o perioada in care nu m-am simtit in stare sa scriu si nici nu am avut inspiratie si simt ca v-am dezamagit. Sper sa nu ma certati :( Mi-am revenit si am un review pentru voi. Saptamana trecuta am fost la intalnirea beauty blogger-itelor din Cluj-Napoca si am venit acasa incarcata de daruri. Printe aceste daruri s-au numarat si 5 oje de la Farmec, din noua lor colectie toamna-iarna.

and this was the goodie bag! ;)
gentuta cu bunatati! ;)

As you might have noticed, it took me a week to swatch the polishes and write a blog post for you. But not to worry, I'm back!
Let's start with my favorite one....I lie...they are all my favorite!

Dupa cum bine ati vazut, mi-a luat o saptamana sa le fac un swatch si sa fac o postare pentru voi. Dar nu va faceti griji, mi-am revenit!
Sa incep cu preferata, mint...toate sunt preferatele mele!

Hot Wine Punch

Joyful Elf
a shy and darker dupe for Chanel Peridot 
(un duplicat mai timid si mai inchis al celebrului Chanel Peridot)

Muddy Boots
this blue shade has some tiny tiny black dots in it that makes it look dirty
(aceasta nuanta de albastru are mici particule negre care ii dau un efect murdar)

Silent Night

Wilted Rose
this pink color has the same tiny tiny black dots inside, for the dirty finish
(rozul acesta are aceleasi particule negre pentru finish-ul murdar)

This are my newest Farmec additions to my nail polish collection. If you have them too, let me know which one is you favorite!

Acestea sunt noile mele oje Farmec din colectia mea. Daca le aveti si voi, spuneti-mi care  e preferata voastra!

Beauty Bloggers Cluj Annual Meeting - Second Edition

Salut, salut.
Nici macar azi nu mi-am revenit din fericirea de sambata :)
De ce?
Pentru ca Sambata am fost la a doua intalnire a beauty blogger-itelor din Cluj, si chiar daca nu ma incadrez in sectiunea de beauty, ma incadrez la blogger-ita de Cluj.

Eu sunt cu sectiunea mea de hand-made si nail art, dar si asa restul fetelor m-au primit cu bratele deschise. Mi-am cam facut eu o idee despre ce si cum o sa fie la intalnire, dar stiti vorba "socoteala de acasa nu se potriveste cu cea din targ". Ei bine, cam asa a fost si in cazul meu. Nici vorba de figuri de diva la fetele cu "vechime" in blogging. Acolo am fost toate egale, fie ca ai 30 de follower-i (ca mine), fie 3000 de follower-i; si asta m-a facut sa ma simt bine si acceptata.
Inainte de intalnirea oficiala, am stabilit sa ma intalnesc cu doua blogger-ite in Marasti, sa ne facem curaj pe drum( eu si Agota eram la prima intalnire, iar Cristina era deja veterana, era la a doua). Am ajuns la un moment dat la Centrul de Frumusete FARMEC, pe str. Bucuresti nr. 55 - blocul spray, dupa cum il stiu toti cei care traiesc sau au trait in Cluj. La intrare ne astepta Anca, emotionata, dar mandra ca a reusit sa ne adune pe toate intr-o incapere.
Sala de conferinte Farmec era mov! OMG...culoarea mea preferata :) foarte frumoasa, simpla, cocheta...asa cum trebuie sa fie si o femeie ;) si pe scaunele mov, bineinteles, ghiciti ce ne astepta? un goodie bag de la Farmec.

O gentuta mov...
cu o crema Doina si 
5 oje din noua colectie
 toamna-iarna Farmec (deja am favorite dintre ele)

Ne adunam toate si incepem...deoarece am fost mai multe fete care nu faceam parte din grup anul trecut, la prima editie, au trebuit facute introducerile...noroc ca m-am pus in spate si pana a ajuns randul la mine, eu aveam deja curaj. :)

Damn that a vrut deloc sa stea cum l-am pus eu! 

 Terminam cu prezentarile si trecem la lucrurile mai serioase. Am inceput sa discutam despre cum sa ne facem blogul sa creasca, cum se fac campaniile, cum sa dicutam cu cititorii si cu PRii firmelor cu care ne dorim sa colaboram - eu una, am invatat foarte multe si o sa incep sa aplic ceea ce am aflat si memorat. :)

Am avut si reprezentati a doua firme de cosmetice prezenti la intalnire: Ana si Corina, PR la NIVEA si Razvan, area sales pentru ORIFLAME, care ne-au ajutat cu sfaturi in ceea ce priveste colaborarea cu diverse firme de cosmetice - sfaturi memorate! :)
Am discutat despre cum sa fim cat mai prezente atat on-line cat si off-line, pe ce canale de social media putem fi prezente, am mai dezbatut un caz concret de frauda si multe alte tentative de frauda de care s-au batut fetele.
Pentru ca era deja vremea cinei, Panemar ne-a un sandwich delicios si o prajitura/fursec exact ca cel facut in casa, Oriflame ne-a servit un ceai din noua lor selectie Wellness, iar Aqua Carpatica ne-a hidratat cu apa plata si minerala. Pauza de masa a fost un prilej minunat sa "mingle" si sa ne cunoastem mai bine.

 Pana aici, toate aici mai frumoase. Momentul in care organizatoarele evenimentului ne-au oferit darurile primite de la partenerii acestui eveniment, si credeti-ma, au fost multi.
