July Favorites

18 august 2014


Hi girls! We can't believe that the last month of summer has arrived. Don't forget to enjoy the days left from this season! We discovered many new products in July, but will also present a few that we have used in previous months, but we didn't wrote about them.

Buna fetelor! Nu ne vine sa credem ca ultima luna de vara a sosit. Parca vara asta a fost mai scurta ca niciodata, probabil din cauza vremii urate. In fine, sa nu uitam sa ne bucuram de zilele care au mai ramas din acest anotimp. Si in luna iulie am descoperit multe produse noi care ne-au placut, dar va mai prezentam si cateva pe care le-am folosit in lunile anterioare, dar despre care nu ne formasem inca o parere.


1. Yves Rocher perfumes:  Moment de Bonheur l'eau has a fruity floral scent of apples and roses, while Collection Ete has a citric smell, with bergamot, tangerine and lemon notes. Both have a fresh scent, perfect for summer.

Parfumurile Yves Rocher: Moment de Bonheur L'eau-are un miros floral fructat, de mere si trandafiri, in timp ce Collection Ete are miros citric, cu note de bergamota, mandarina si lamaie. Ambele sunt fresh, perfecte pentru vara.




2. Benecos Natural Powder blush- you can read the review here;

Blush-ul Benecos Natural Powder- ii puteti citi review-ul aici;


3. Maybelline Collosal Go Extreme Volume- we really like it because it gives volume, length and intense black color to lashes. It's a good mascara, especially in summer, because it doesn't smudge, even at high temperatures.

Mascara Maybelline Collosal Go Extreme Volume- ne place foarte mult deoarece ofera alungire, volum, dar si culoare intensa genelor. E o mascara foarte buna, mai ales vara, deoarece nu se faramiteaza sub gene, nu se intinde si rezista ore in sir, chiar si la temperaturi ridicate.


4. Catrice Camouflage Cream- is a good concealer with great coverage. We'll review it soon;

Catrice camouflage cream- e un corector foarte bun cu o acoperire mare. Am ramas placut suprinse de el, o sa-i facem review in curand;


5.  Maybelline Baby Lips (Pink Punch)- is our favorite shade from the ones that are available in our country. It gives you a nice pink color and also hydrates the lips, so it's perfect.

Maybelline Baby Lips nuanta Pink Punch- nuanta noastra preferata de Baby Lips dintre cele 5 existente la noi in tara. Ofera o nuanta super frumoasa de roz si hidrateaza foarte bine, nu putem cere mai mult de atat de la un balsam :)


6. Keune Care Line Intensive Hair Repair hair mask- you can read the review here;

Masca de par Keune Care Line Intensive Hair Repair- puteti citi review-ul aici;


7. Yves Rocher Raspberry exfoliating shower gel- has raspberry jam smell, it's delicious and the black particles looks like raspberry seeds that exfoliate the skin;

Gelul exfoliant cu zmeura de la Yves Rocher- are o aroma de gem de zmeura, miroase delicios si parca are prin el seminte de zmeura care exfoliaza usor pielea;


8. Paula's Choice Sun Care SPF 50- this is the first sunscreen that we have from Paula's Choice. It's good, but the only annoying aspect is that it leaves an oily film on the skin. We don't recommend this if you have oily skin.

Paula's Choice Sun Care SPF 50 - e prima crema cu SPF pe care o avem de la Paula's Choice. E buna, chiar ne place, singurul aspect deranjant e faptul ca lasa o pelicula uleioasa pe ten. Nu o recomandam in niciun caz persoanelor cu ten gras (desi pe ea scrie ca e light si e destinata special acestor persoane). Cel putin nu lasa si pelicula alba si cu pudra poate fi rezolvata problema luciului.


9. Bioderma Sensibio Tolerance Plus- this a redness treatment, but we used it as a makeup base and it does an excellent job. It absorbs quickly into the skin, it doesn't leave a greasy film and also moisturize the skin.

 Bioderma Sensibio Tolerance Plus- e o crema tratament impotriva rosetii, insa noi am folosit-o ca baza de machiaj si face o treaba excelenta. Se absoarbe rapid in piele, nu lasa o pelicula grasa la suprafata si in acelasi timp hidrateaza tenul.



10. Clean and Clear blackhead clearing scrub- we haven't use a scrub for a few years, we preferred chemical exfoliants (BHA and AHA), but lately we decided to use again a scrub. It's not very harsh, it's perfect if you want a deep clean and you have a sensitive skin. We noticed an improvement of our skin since using it, plus it really helps with blackheads.

Scrub-ul Clean and Clear impotriva punctelor negre- nu mai folosisem de cativa ani un scrub, am preferat exfoliantele chimice (BHA si AHA), insa in ultima vreme ne simteam fata foarte incarcata si nimic nu mai avea efect, asa ca am hotarat sa folosim un exfoliant. Nu e foarte fin, dar nici cu particule foarte mari, curata in profunzime si chiar am observat o imbunatatire in ceea ce priveste aspectul tenului de cand il folosim, plus ca are si efect asupra punctelor negre.

Weekend outfit: You can't overdose on music

15 august 2014


It's Friday, so it's time for a new weekend outfit post. Today I will show you a super comfy outfit featuring a denim overall.
Lately we've been a little absent from the blog because is so hot outside and we felt lazy, but also because we have some offline chores and we haven't spent too much time online. Now we are in a mini vacation in our hometown and it feels so good to be back home.

Now about my outfit: I must admit that I haven't always liked overalls, don't know why, but now I can't stop wearing them. This is my first denim overall, but unfortunately it's a little tight, but I still like it. I find it very easy to wear a jumpsuit, you decide if you want a Tshirt or a tank and the outfit is ready. I choose a pair of espadrilles that seemed to come very well with this jumpsuit.
Dorina told me I look like a child and the only thing I need to go to school is a backpack :)
Do you like overalls?

♥ 

E vineri, e timpul pentru tinuta de weekend. In ultima vreme am fost cam absente de pe blog: atat din cauza caldurii, dar si pentru ca am fost ocupate in offline si nu am petrecut prea mult timp online. Acum suntem acasa, la Slatina, in mini vacanta de Sfanta Maria si e o perioada de relaxare totala dupa cateva saptamani cam stresante.
La multi ani tuturor celor care purtati numele de Maria sau derivate ale acestuia!

Astazi va prezint un nou outfit lejer potrivit pentru weekend. Trebuie sa recunosc ca nu mi-au placut intotdeauna salopetele, cu greu am inceput sa le port, nu stiu de ce, dar acum nu pot sa ma mai despart de ele.

Salopeta din tinuta de astazi e prima mea salopeta de blugi, dar din pacate e putin cam fixa (cred ca se observa si in poze), dar tot am purtat-o cu drag pentru ca imi place mult.

Mi se pare foarte simplu sa porti o salopeta, te hotarasti daca vrei un tricou sau un maiou si gata tinuta. Am optat pentru espadrile pentru ca mi s-a parut ca vin tare bine cu salopeta asta. Ador espadrilele astea, mai ales ca le-am gasit intamplator si imi tot vine sa le port mereu.

Dorina mi-a spus ca arat ca un copil si ca imi lipseste rucsacul din spate :)

Voua va plac salopetele?

Kimono mania

12 august 2014


The new hot trend for summer is the kimono. Long or short, with or without fringe, this clothing item so far ignored by all, stormed the beaches and the streets this summer.

At first we didn't like it, but we must admit that lately we've become fans, especially after seeing so many beautiful models. We already ordered the model from the second photo and we can't wait to arrive.

The short ones seem a great alternative to cardigans and sweaters for cool summer evenings, while the long ones are a great alternative for pareos.  It can be bohemian, cool, glamorous, sexy, gypsy, depending how you combine it.
You can see below some of our favorite models:
What do you think?
 
♥  
De cateva luni, kimono-urile sunt in mare voga. Lungi sau scurte, cu printuri, cu franjuri sau fara, aceste piese vestimentare ignorate total pana acum au luat cu asalt plajele, dar si strazile in aceasta vara.

La inceput nu prea ne-au placut, dar recunoastem ca in ultima vreme am devenit si noi fane, mai ales dupa ce am vazut atatea modele frumoase. Ne-am comandat deja modelul din a doua fotografie si abia asteptam sa ne soseasca.

Cele scurte ni se par o alternativa foarte buna la cardigane si puloverase in serile racoroase de vara, iar cele lungi- pe plaja in loc de pareo. Pot fi combinate cu rochii, cu jeansi, dar credem ca se potrivesc foarte bine si cu pantaloni scurti.
Mai jos puteti vedea cateva din modelele noastre favorite:

Weekend outfit: Bye, bye, miss American Pie

9 august 2014


It's Saturday, so it's time for a new Weekend Outfit. For today I prepared something comfy, perfect for a long walk or a road trip. Before talking about today's outfit, I want to thank you for all the nice comments from Daniel Wellington post. Cristina and I have been thrilled to see how much you appreciated our idea. I worked some on it, but worth every second. Thank you very much.

Even if the combination denim + American flag vest is already a cliche, I still adore it. It's one of the outfits that you see very often, but are timeless. I don't get bored of this combo, it's classy for me.
The DressVe bag is very large and practical, but not very resistant. The straps are too thin and I'm afraid to fill it.  I bought the shorts and the espadrilles on sales and were a very good deal considering the fact that I can wear for a long time from now.
Happy weekend! 

♥ 
E sambata, e timpul pentru o noua tinuta de la rubrica Weekend Outfit. Pentru astazi v-am pregatit tot ceva lejer, perfect pentru o plimbare lunga sau o mica excursie in afara orasului.
Inainte de a vorbi despre tinuta de astazi, vreau sa va multumesc pentru toate comentariile frumoase de la postarea cu Daniel Wellington. Eu si Cristina am fost extrem de incantate sa vedem cat ati apreciat ideea noastra. Am muncit ceva la ea, dar a meritat fiecare secunda. Multumim mult.

Chiar daca combinatia denim+steagul Americii e deja un cliseu, eu tot o ador, arata genial, nu degeaba a devenit asa populara. E una din tinutele pe care le vezi foarte des, dar de care nu te plictisesti si care nu se demodeaza in timp, e clasica daca pot spune asa.

Geanta e foarte mare si practica, insa nu e foarte rezistenta. Are baretele cam subtiri si mi-e frica sa risc sa o umplu. Nu stiu daca teama mea e justificata, avand in vedere ca am avut camera in ea, sticla de apa si alte chestii, dar totusi sunt prevazatoare :P

Pantalonii scurti si espadrilele sunt luate in acest sezon la reduceri si au fost niste achizitii inspirate, avand in vedere pretul lor si faptul ca le pot purta mult timp de acum incolo, pentru ca nu se demodeaza :P
Espadrilele au costat mai putin decat o bautura de la Starbucks (13 lei), iar jeansii scurti 30 de lei.

Weekend placut in continuare. V-am pupat! :*

Time is a matter of priority

6 august 2014


The most common excuse we hear daily on everyone's lips is "I don't have time". We all use it in different situations. But time is a matter of priority. When you really want something, you’ll have time for it. You'll see that if you try to book a little time every day for what you have in mind, you'll be able to accomplish your goal. Start now, otherwise you may end up it's too late! If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you'll never get it done. How many times have you noticed that time is passing by too fast and you haven't managed to do what you wanted?
For better time management, you need a watch. Maybe you'll laugh and say it's stupid, but from our experience, we tell you that it couldn't be more true. No matter if you have a smartphone, because to be honest, we forget to check what time it is, we use it just to upload photos on Instagram. And you can't compare a smartphone it with the elegance of a watch. Besides practical function to remind you how quickly time flies, is also an elegant accessory.
Daniel Wellington watches are "modern classics", the perfect mix of the traditional British elegance and the modern casual style, so that they can be easily integrated into any outfit. With a leather or with a nato strap (made famous by Sean Connery in the "James Bond" movies), waterproof and slim preppy design, Daniel Wellington watches are a real investment because they are very resistant and never go out of style. They denote elegance and class in a subtle way, but they are bold enough to not go unnoticed.
If you want to order a Daniel Wellington watch, we have a 15% discount code for you - "anotherside" (you can use it until August 15th). Shipping is free worldwide.

And now enjoy our photo editorial, an acrostic for Daniel Wellington (is a form of writing in which the first letter in the text spells out a word; in our case the name of the brand).  Kisses! :*


Cea mai frecventa scuza pe care o auzim zi de zi pe buzele tuturor e "Nu am timp". Toti o folosim in diverse situatii fie pentru a amana ceva, fie pentru a ne amagi singuri ca suntem prea ocupati pentru a incepe ceva anume.
Si totusi, atunci cand iti doresti ceva cu adevarat, trebuie sa iti faci timp. Vei vedea ca daca incerci sa iti rezervi cate putin timp in fiecare zi pentru ceea ce ti-ai propus, vei reusi sa iti duci planurile la indeplinire. Nu mai amana, incepe de acum, altfel te poti trezi ca e prea tarziu.
De cate ori nu vi s-a intamplat sa observati ca timpul trece prea repede si ca nu ati reusit sa faceti ceea ce va doreati? "Nu stiu cand s-a facut ora asta" sau si mai rau: "Nu stiu cand a trecut ziua si nu am reusit sa fac ceea ce trebuia". Pentru a avea un "control" mai bun asupra timpului, aveti nevoie de un ceas.
Poate o sa radeti si o sa spuneti ca e o tampenie, insa din proprie experienta va spunem ca e cum nu se poate mai adevarat.
Degeaba avem telefoane de ultima generatie dotate cu fel si fel de functii, pentru ca, sa fim seriosi, nu le verificam pentru a ne uita cat e ceasul ci mai degraba pentru a vedea ce poza a mai fost adaugata pe Instagram. Si nici nu se compara cu eleganta unui ceas, care in afara de functia practica de a iti reaminti cat de repede zboara timpul, au si rol de accesoriu.
Ceasurile Daniel Wellington reprezinta perfect notiunea de "clasic modern", fiind  imbinarea perfecta intre traditionala eleganta englezeasca si stilul casual modern, astfel ca ele pot fi integrate cu usurinta in orice tinuta.
Dotate cu o curea de piele sau cu una nato (devenita faimoasa dupa ce a fost purtata de Sean Connery in seria "James Bond" ) , care se pot schimba intre ele in functie de preferinte, rezistente la apa si cu un design slim, ceasurile Daniel Wellington sunt o investitie, deoarece sunt foarte rezistente si nu se demodeaza. Ele denota eleganta si clasa intr-un mod subtil, insa suficient de indraznet pentru a nu trece neobservate.
Daca va doriti sa comandati un ceas Daniel Wellington, avem pentru voi un cod de reducere de 15% - "anotherside", valabil pana pe 15 august. Shipping-ul este gratuit in toata lumea.

Speram sa va placa editorialul nostru foto a carui idee a pornit de la un acrostih cu initialele Daniel Wellington si isi propune sa va aminteasca cateva reguli simple pentru a fi fericit si pentru a profita la maximum de fiecare secunda.

Dream(big)
Act like a child
Notice the small things. They tend to mean the most


Invest in yourself


Exercise or go for a walk


Live every second



Worry Less


Enjoy life
Love


Laugh


Ignore what everyone else is doing and achieving


Nail it


Give light, and the darkness will disappear of itself


 Take time to pamper yourself

Own yourself


Notice the world around you


But most important: don't forget to live in the present! Paint your life the color of your dreams!
