This is who I am


Today I have decided to share with you a little bit of my journey throughout these years.

Many of you might be new on my page and if you wish to know me better this is a great chance.

You will find out (a lot) about myself, the place I am coming from, how did I grow up, my values and how life used to care for me.

I hope I can keep it short and sweet! (People love to talk about themselves)

I would go back to my childhood, I remember I was always a happy child, I would get involved in all the activities, sometimes more than I could handle, but I simply loved to keep myself busy, finding new hobbies and I must admit I was quite competitive, but in the same time I would always give my best and I was never a greedy child, I think the desire of helping and giving that I now have is there since I was a child. I don’t have brothers or sisters, but I wish I had, so I could share with them all the good and the bad. Cause life has always two sides and I had to live them both. At age fourteen I found myself surrounded by an angel, my mother, Angela, has now become my Angel. I still think that her name was somehow well chosen.

I feel like I am now going into too many details about my personal life which I never spoke about, but since I decided to share moments of it with you, you might as well know that we all go through unfortunate moments in life and those are meant to strengthen us and discover our most powerful sides. And that has happened to me as well.

Ever since I wanted to excel in everything I was getting involved. I felt like I wanted to make both my parents proud, but all I was doing I was actually doing it for myself. I enjoyed it. It would keep me going!

And that’s in terms of relationships, school, being a daughter, a good friend, going to a good University, getting a job. I earned my own money since I was in school. I remember when I was in high school I rarely needed pocket money from my father because I would earn mine. When I went to University, I started to work as well right away, I had couple of jobs mostly in retail and hospitality.

All of that while studying as well. School was always a priority so I always had to study hard just to catch up with all the information because I was missing a lot while working to earn my money (during my University years). I was already an independent girl let’s say. I would manage to pay my own rent, bills and take care of myself.

Ever since that unfortunate event happened in my life, I have evolved so much, I became more mature comparing to kids my age, I was seeing life differently and I knew I had to get out there and make my own path in life because no one else would do it for me. As said, this is what I kept doing until the present moment. I graduated high school with honors, graduated the University with honors again, so in terms of studies I was fulfilled and so was my family.

Something was missing though and that was my personal desire to succeed in life, a quite difficult move at those times of financial crises in Romania and not only.

I have never thought I would build a career or a life out of my own country far from my family. But sooner or later the day I packed my suitcase and moved to Dubai has come.

I still remember the day I landed here, in Dubai, I was so impressed, a girl from a small city in Transylvania being mesmerized by a city as Dubai. It was so impressive to me and I still love it as much as the day I first landed here.

It was a risk that I took and not many would have done it if they were in my place. But that risk played a big role in my life.

Everything that happened afterwards it’s a more familiar picture to you already, since I have spoken about it in a previous article where I mention about my first job in Dubai and how did I end up becoming a cabin crew for Emirates.

Now, why did I share all of those quite personal stories with you?

The reason is quite clear and simple and that’s to, basically, show you that, whatever you dream of, you can achieve, to show you that in life you don’t need anyone else but yourself. Don’t rely on your parents money or your parents connections, don’t let the circumstances of your life decide for yourself, but take your own decisions and turn your whole life around.

This is an honest personal experience, that your background, your money or your social life, does not determine who you can become and if that means to be the one that does things differently and takes a risk, then go for it!

Choose for yourself and choose wisely, be aware of your unlimited possibilities and chances that life shows you and be open to welcome them! You should always make the best with what you have, be proud and happy about it, make it special!

Despite everything else I want you to know that I have always felt loved and fortunate to be surrounded by amazing friends, great communities and people who trust me. I still believe that when God takes something from you, although nothing and by that I mean NOTHING belongs to us, He always makes sure to give us so much more in return.

So yes, I feel truly blessed, very fortunate about everything in my life, very proud of who I am as a person and I know that the best is yet to come.

And when you can’t find the sunshine, BE the sunshine, and that sums up pretty much how my journey in life went, I was my own sunshine when I couldn’t find one!

Love,

Andra

10 random facts about me


Hello pretty or hello handsome!

You might or you might be not that new to my page anymore, but regardless, today, I’d like to share with you little bit about myself.

I know we all picture ourselves in the best light, either here on the blog or on Instagram, but how about talking about some randomness?

I am trying to get to know you better, but for that you should also know a bit more about myself, that’s the only way we can deepen our relationship…even a virtual one.

Therefore, let me tell you 10 random facts about me, that random that I have to think about it. Lol.

1. I am afraid of heights. I’m not sure that’s the right way to put it, since I’m always in the air, or on rooftops, even my home in Dubai is on the 54th floor, but still if you ask me to jump out of a plane, that’s a NO NO. I believe it all started when I was little and I had a dream of falling or nearly falling out of the edge of a tall building. Weird, but I still feel that when I think about it.

2. When I was a child I wanted to be a pharmacist, my aunt is a pharmacist so I thought that’s such a cool and interesting job. I ended up applying for Police Academy, Law University and Food Engineering. Graduated the last one.

3. I know nothing about politics. Or almost nothing and I live so well with that.

4. I can’t watch horror movies. They traumatize me for life. I mean it!

5. I would watch a movie and then I won’t remember in the future if I have ever watched it before, I don’t understand how can I forget it. Like people could tell you the whole plot, the actors, their name in the movies…hello, who are you?

6. This year I discovered how much I enjoy reading, truly. My mind is full of information, plans, dreams, strategies. And what I enjoy more is sharing that knowledge with people who need it.

7. I believe that my purpose in life is to share, to give, to make people happy. I do treat people with respect and kindness, and add a smile to that. It’s the biggest gift you can offer anyone.

8. I love The Weeknd’s music, in case you didn’t know. I bet you knew that.

9. I don’t have a “favorite car.” My favorite car should be red and elegant, if that’s how you define good cars.

10. I might be rolling my eyes when people don’t listen, I mean that moment when you are talking and the other person starts talking over you, completely ignoring what you were saying. Thank you, next.

11. Ah, I said 10. Ok, that’s it for today. My list is so much longer though.

I hope you enjoyed knowing a little more about myself. Slowly, but surely, we’ll get to know each other.

Sending you much love, positive thoughts and courage to stay strong, sane and active!

XOXO,

Andra

If you only do these two things, you’re doing enough


In this blog article I am going to share with you my two most important tasks of the day and please, let me tell you that, if this is ALL you do for yourself on a daily basis, trust me, this is THE BEST you can do.

Yes, it has a huge impact on you, I can’t even say this enough, but feeding the mind and training the body are the two best things one can do in this life.

We sometimes tend to focus so much on one goal that we want to achieve that we completely neglect anything else. How many of you are so much focused on losing weight right now? I am! So if you are like me, you’re probably exercising daily or at least three good workouts per week. You must be on a very healthy lifestyle, you have a nutritionist looking after your diet and you’re watching closely your sleep and the quantity of water you must drink every day.

If you are not on the same page with me, probably it’s the right time to revise what you are doing and work smarter on that diet.

By the way, for me it’s not a diet anymore, it became a lifestyle. I love it so much, I love the way it makes me feel, the daily exercises, the fact that I have a good sleep in the night ( I finally go to bed early), the fact that whatever I give my body it’s not a love & hate situation anymore but a love & love one. We learnt to love each other.

That all sounds perfect until now! But then let me ask you, and now we reach to the point I was looking so much forward to, how many of you are still focused on training your mind as well?

In a world that is so preoccupied with the physical aspect, are you the exception that is working on both? Are you training your mind as hard as you’re training your body?

Ask yourself this question, balance the situation and make sure it’s all in your favor. I love and admire a healthy body, I know how much hard work is behind that, the motivation and the dedication of exercising and sticking to healthy habits, but what is a healthy body without a healthy mind?

So my only advice I would like to offer to all of you, it’s like a small virtual gift and I do it because I would like to share with you all the beneficial changes I am going through, is this: do not neglect your mind and where you are right now in your life, it’s important to train your mind every day, do it at least for 20 minutes, read all the books you have at home, if you only have one, read it ten times, I guarantee that you’ll still learn something new after you read it for the tenth time. If you don’t like reading or you don’t have the time, there are so many audio books, you can listen to one while you’re driving or while you’re exercising. You can perhaps listen to a podcast or watch a Ted Talk. Maybe you want to invest 20 minutes for your business and start to explore and read what is new in the market or what can bring you an advantage.

Whatever it is, don’t find excuses and take twenty minutes every day for yourself, for your mind and invest in developing your knowledge. Twenty minutes is something we all have and why not doing something that adds value to who we are and to who we are about to become?

Being stuck at home, doesn’t necessarily have to mean being stuck in life or being stuck in your thoughts, but we can turn that into growing at home or self-developing at home, becoming better, becoming wiser, being more focused and feeding our brains with the right information, to be more precise.

Let’s all take a break from negativity, panic and stress. We can overcome the situation we are ALL in, by first, accepting it and then trying to act on it. How? If we all focus on ourselves and our growth, together we can add more value to this Planet, together we can share great ideas and this is, honestly, the best time to connect, to give and not to expect anything in return.

My dear darling, offer yourself forty minutes a day. Twenty to train your body and twenty to train your mind. Trust me. It’s a process that will answer so many of your questions and it will calm so many anxious thoughts. Turn this situation in your favor and offer yourself this gift. You deserve it! Life is meant to be lived at your fullest potential!

So much love,

Andra

Hello 2020!


I would like to welcome this fantastic year in my life. I have a feeling that the year that has just passed wasn’t as powerful as 2020 will be. You know, us, women we have that sixth sense, so better trust us.

Since we stepped into a new year, a new me, I don’t want to dig too much into 2019, it’s already a closed chapter, but I would like to emphasize on making sure that you have all done your annul review and you know what to leave behind and what to bring with you in this new year.

I went through my list and my writings for the beginning of 2019 and throughout the year and I have realized that most of what I have wished for became the reality I am living today.

And there is little left undone, which doesn’t upset me, because I will keep working on it and finding a better strategy to get things done this year.

Fortunately, I was blessed enough to get to spend the Christmas holidays, back home, in Romania with my family and my friends.

It was a joyful Christmas for us, specially because of my godson, Alexandru, who has shared with us, the excitement of waiting for Santa Claus and I can’t even put in words how special this little human being is.

He taught us (at almost 3 years old) valuable lessons which I would like to share with you.

  • A “Thank you” goes a long way
  • Don’t forget to play, it keeps you young and takes your worries away
  • Wake up early and go to bed early, take a nap in the afternoon
  • Don’t skip breakfast
  • Stay hydrated
  • Make sure you surprise someone throughout the day, even with something as little as a Kinder Surprise 🙂
  • Apologize when wrong
  • Learn how to listen (and memorize everything, I am still shocked)
  • Dance and sing along the way

These are very small things the kids are doing effortless, however looking at us, the grownup ones, we kind of struggle to even drink enough water during the day and that says it all.

But pause here.

Think about it. Do you really enjoy living in your busy world? Feeling always tired? Coming home from work and staying on a phone? Forgetting to eat or worse, overeating? Making a habit out of overthinking?

The last might be the favorite activity between adults.

I strongly believe that you need a break.

You need to slow down and breathe.

And that is all I wish for you in this miraculous 2020, that you take a deep breath, thank God for it, because nothing would be possible without Him and don’t forget to play.

Keep yourself young, surround yourself with people that inspire you, lift you and encourage you to become better.

Be kind to the ones around you. Help and don’t forget to give back to the ones in need.

Only focus to achieve spiritual values and not material ones. You don’t want to fall in the trap of a temporary happiness but an eternal one instead.

Nothing will make you feel more safe and secure than having a partner, family or friends that love you, care for you, check on you and have your back regardless.

The rest is all up to you. The number of kilograms you lose, the money you save, the places you travel to, if you quit smoking or not, if you sleep until 1pm or get up at 6 am, it’s all up to you.

And if you fail at any of these there is no one you can blame, but you.

So, my darling, put yourself first, give yourself everything you have and be ready to prove them wrong to all those who thought you are not gonna make it!

Much love,

A

Why fashion matters?


Fashion matters. 

To the economy, to society and to each of us personally, of course in different proportions.
Faster than anything else, what we wear tells the story of who we are or who we want to be. Fashion is the most immediate and intimate form of self-expression. Personally, I admire people who choose their clothes carefully, who do some research about latest trends, who consider what suits them the best or who, at least, check themselves in the mirror before going out. Not to mention that I do look at people’s outfits a lot, specially when I travel around the world, I’m sometimes looking for inspiration, other times I just want to see how the city looks like through the people’s street style.

Fashion deserves to be taken seriously and celebrated for its beauty, creativity and entrepreneurial spirit. The fashion industry is among the most aspirational and dynamic of all industries. Its best designers, as with all great artists, imagine, initiate and move culture on. The cut or pattern that first appeared on the catwalk soon finds its way onto store shelves and into our wardrobe. Whether or not we like to admit it, what we wear and how we wear it is inevitably influenced by designers’ ideas and creative decisions.
We all follow trends or at least we take what we want out of what the fashions masters dictate in the fashion magazines, tv, catwalk or lately, through the influencers.

The “clothes that wear us”

At heart, fashion is all about the art of self-adornment: the visual presentation of ourselves to the external world.
What we choose to wear reflects how we view the world and how we want the world to view us.
The prehistoric caveman with the latest beads, the post-war woman in Dior’s New Look, the latest fashion blog recording street style as it happens, they are all tied to our very human need to express individuality.
We all have our unique style and that’s where the beauty is, because we are all different, therefore we choose to express ourselves in million different ways. How many times we wear something that we want to be comfy in, like a cotton t-shirt and cotton trousers, just because we are not in a good mood or we don’t feel like dressing up and so on. Style says a lot about how we feel at that time too.

_DSC4239

I love to spend time shopping, reading, going through fashion magazines, Instagram pictures, I take time to prepare my outfits too, most of the times, otherwise when I have no inspiration I just play it safe with basics. However, I’m careful at not crossing limits and spending too much time doing this and getting exhausted only trying to look perfect!
That shouldn’t happen, it’s all supposed to be a funny creative game that will make us happy when we see the final result in the mirror.
And the most important advice I could give is: if you need help ask for it!
You have friends that are more talented than you are, you have an Instagram account or a Pinterest, people who look cool anytime without any effort, people more interested in fashion, or even the stylists that they do this for a living. Call them, check those pictures, ask Google. You have so many options that could help you when you have no ideas or you simply feel less inspired. Just shout for help! 🙂

Fashion has been and always will be a constant part of our existence. Why?
Because FASHION really does MATTER.

Singing the denim blues


JEANS HISTORY

Jeans began life as a utility garment because of the hard-wearing nature of the fabric, yet from their origins as the informal uniform of America’s gold Rush and timber industry, they have evolved into a stylish staple that features on catwalks and in high-end fashion magazines. A good pair of jeans can last a lifetime, their durability matched by a flexibility that means they quickly mould to fit one’s shape. Many of us regard our favorite pair of jeans as a familiar friend associated with key moments in our lives.
Many of us also have multiple pairs of jeans. According to a survey, the average American woman owns 8.3 pairs and the British were to spend some 1.51£ billion on 86 million pairs of jeans!
Jeans can now be bought at every price point, in every colour and in innumerable styles.
They have come a long way from their origins as the working man’s uniform.

DID YOU KNOW?

While jeans could appear to be an ideal example of sustainable fashion, they actually exemplify the darker side of clothing production. Jeans are made from cotton, which needs large amounts of land and even larger amounts of pesticides to grow. Achieving that blue denim rinse requires numerous dyeing processes that consume huge amounts of water. According to Levi’s, over three thousand litres of water will be used during the full product life-cycle of a SINGLE pair of 501 jeans, from the cotton production and manufacturing processes to their regular washing at home.

_MG_1229

THE UGLY TRUTH

Since the 1980’s, jeans have often been designed to appear pre-worn, a look achieved by sandblasting, which has led to many garment workers contracting the incurable lung disease silicosis.
In Turkey, where the backlash against sandblasting first began, there have been 1200 registered cases of silicosis, though many doctors believe the number to be much higher. In Bangladesh, where there are some thousand garment-making factories, jeans production employs thousands. Employees often work eleven hours a day for as little as 38$ a MONTH– the living wage in Bangladesh is 100$ a month, in conditions where the air is filled with tiny particles of silica.
A number of companies have moved to ban sandblasting, including Levi’s, H&M and C&A. Versace and Gucci have also made a commitment to stop using the process in the manufacturing of jeans. The clothing industry’s reliance on subcontractors, however, makes it difficult to enforce such bans. One way to end the practice of sandblasting jeans would be to create your own wear and tear.

_MG_1246

_MG_1383

Who else remembers using a pumice stone to soften up a new pair jeans and make them look worn-in? 🙂

I do, when the market was not that accesible to us, I used to do my own jeans that would look worn-in, they were so cool and not once I was trying to accessorize them, cut them, basically restyling so it would look like a new pair without having to buy another one. I do recommend you to do the same! 🙂
_MG_1365

_MG_1419

Probably you’ll be wondering why after knowing what’s behind the beautiful jeans fashion I am still posting these pictures in a full denim outfit!
Unfortunately, I was not aware of all that information either, until I read it in one of the various fashion books I have bought not long ago, after taking these beautiful pictures in downtown Dubai planning to write a completly different article on it, but I believe little awareness wouldn’t mind anyone.

_MG_1408

_MG_1354

Whoever knows me, they know how in love I am with the denim since I was little and I used to have a proper collection of jeans, when I left Romania I counted around 50 pairs, which have been donated later on, so let’s say I was doing litlle good too.
Yes, I still love jeans in all forms, jackets, skirts, you name it. But what I promise to myself is that I will try to use them as much as possible and restyle from time to time, whenever I get bored instead of buying some other pairs.

Do you know any other interesting facts about jeans or other garments/fabrics? Please, share them with us in the comment section, we’ll be all more than happy to know as much as possible to avoid doing major mistakes with our clothing pieces.

The art of self


“You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” Siddhartha Gautama Buddha

What is the most important relationship that you have? You may think is the one with your boyfriend, parents, friends.

Let me tell you it is NOT.

_DSC4113

The most important relationship you should have is the one with yourself.
Self love should be a priority, you must love yourself first before being able to send your love to the world. And how would the others be able to love you if you don’t release this love to yourself before anything?

170712_416

Bold and brilliant

To love yourself is nothing but to accept the good parts and the bad parts, to accept your dark mood as well as the bright one, to accept yourself as you really are! To be able to receive as much as you are willing to give and to always do both!
The art of self-love will tell you to be kind to yourself, to treat everyone the way you would like to be treated and it will teach you every day what your boundaries are, as well as, what your values are  and to be able to honour them each moment.

_DSC4041

You are worth it! You are worth all the love, as long as you give it to you first.
And that should be given to your mind, to your spirit and your body. Never settle for less.

_DSC4100

Say HELLO to the new you.

Recognize your strengths, write down things that the others admire you for, cut out all the negativity from your life, even if that includes cutting out “friends”, do more of what you love, put yourself first, but not in selfish way.

_DSC4137

When you do that, when you start loving yourself, when you feel good in your own body, your own mind, the inner happiness you will achieve and the peace of mind, the confidence will not compare to anything else in the world, trust me.

Each morning we are born again


Embrace those mornings.

7 am. You wake up with no alarm feeling well rested and full of energy. You get up and prepare yourself a big cup of coffee and then you start planning your day, your month or perhaps your life…
Oh, such a great feeling!

IMG_5261

BSP-153

Choose to shine!

I am not a morning bird, I admit it, however I am always trying to set an alarm on my day off too, just to make sure I am not wasting any time, plus isn’t the morning the most efficient part of the day? When all the world is silent, when all humans are sleeping or trying to get out of bed and you are already working on your goals and making clear plans for your future.
Or simply, the fact that this is your time! This is the time that no one will bother you, no one will call you or text you and you can just do whatever you want, read, sing, watch movies, write, cook or climb rooftops like we did. 🙂

IMG_5276

BSP-150

When you start each day with a grateful heart, light illuminates from within…

I love this kind of mornings, even more when it involves little sunshine in my eyes…that warm light that steps in your room. The light that brings in passion, hope and enthusiasm. Such a blessing! But how many we are able to see it?

IMG_5259

 

BSP-28

Every morning is a new day and another chance of living your life

How many of us we are thankful every day for all we have since the moment we open our eyes? For what we see, what we hear, what we feel…for all of it, we shouldn’t be taking anything for granted. It is a gift given by God and we have to cherish it day by day.

IMG_5263

BSP-15

“When you arise in the morningthink of what a precious privilege it is to be alive -to breatheto thinkto enjoyto love.”

Be thankful for all you have and all you are and start the day with positive thoughts!
Don’t miss to tell yourself how wonderful you are and how nothing will stop you from achieving all those big dreams that seem farther than ever. They are closer than you think. Just take the step towards them!

IMG_5262

BSP-20

Wondering how to have a better day?

  1. Smile, smile, smile!
  2. Slow down, take the time to admire or to appreciate.
  3. Say thank you. We all expect a little thank you, right? Say it!
  4. Give compliments. Lots of them. If you love them, they’ll love them too.
  5. Dress nicely! Oh, I love this.
  6. Wear perfume. You know the consequences, it turns heads, ladies…and gents! 🙂
  7. Listen! Such a good advice. We all have something to say, but we are not all good listeners.
  8. Laugh! It will make your day even better! 🙂IMG_5268

Now, go, set yourself free and fly higher than you ever did.

A ladylike to wear your boyfriend oversized blazer


Look cool, not sloppy.

By now you should be used to the latest trends, that tell you oversized is cool!
The bigger the better. With the risk you might look homeless sometimes, go for it!

170707_415

It’s time to wear anything that is two size bigger, so don’t hesitate to borrow your boyfriend shirts, blazers, jeans, but hey, not the shoes! We don’t want some circus going on, pretty ladies! Haha!
My favorite part is that everything is so comfortable plus you can easily hide all the deserts you had lately. 😌

170707_412

Let me tell you the story, I’m flying to NY, the photo shoot has been already planned for a while, so I’m looking forward to meet my dear Sinziana, who is already having a career as a photographer in the lovely New York, New York.

170707_413

Overpack- it’s why suitcases have wheels now.

Time to pack! Oh, only one suitcase, only 24 hours, that’s already a difficult start!
Late in the evening, all clothes out, trying to mix and match and play games with my clothes! Let me add some of my boyfriend’s, I’m quickly thinking.
Anyway, Dubai is way too hot at the moment to wear blazer, he won’t notice.
Done! His jacket straight away in my suitcase!
By the way, we kind of have the same size, we can borrow each other clothes and this is not the first time, actually he was wearing mine too, shhhh, our secret!

170707_414

 

170707_411

The masculine meets feminine

What do you do with an oversized blazer though? I don’t want to wear anything under, but I can’t walk in a bra around Manhattan either. Let me add that vintage belt I bought in a second-hand! Oh, did I mention how much I love these shops? Cheap&chic, that’s the etiquette!

170707_407

I want a feminine look though. I’ll take some stilettos! Hum, dead man walking around NY in high heels, that’s definitely something that you need to see, after such a long flight and no sleep! But, hey, we can do anything we want, can’t we? Yes, who cares, Starbucks is my favorite addiction, it always keeps me going, so why would I give up now? Caffeine won’t give up on me without getting this done!

170707_409

170707_410

Oh, let’s go back to fashion! Still one item missing.
Mmm, this floral skirt was trying to get my attention, since it’s been a while I didn’t wear it. Ok, I’ll take you to NY dear, don’t cry!

170707_408

Voila, my look is complete! Time to explore New York. 🙂
