Get to know me TAG

I saw this row of 11 questions by Demi’s blog Beauty and the Mist and she tagged anybody who wanted to answer to these questions. So here are my answers to the questions:

1. Who is your favorite superhero? Why?
I don’t have favorite superheroes.

2. What is your favorite magazine?


3. Have you ever lived abroad?
No, but sometimes I thinking to move abroad with my family.
4. If you could only wear one accessory (bracelet, earring, necklace, etc) for the rest of your life, what would you wear?
That is my wedding and engagement ring.
5.  Do you own any animals?
No, but I had three dogs, six hamsters, one Guinea Pig, a turtle, three rabbits, one hedgehog who was  suicidal, trowed himself from the ten's floar :( All these animals I had over the years.

6. How do you know when it's true love?
Well that’s hard. Maybe trough the years anybody can notice if it’s true love or not. For me one thing is sure, not love is the most important thing but trust, kindness, understanding, being there for each other when needed and not, are more important in a marriage or a commitment. Love comes and goes – like the song says!

7. As for perfume... floral, fruity, foodie, other?

Depends on my mood, I like fresh, floral and oriental fragrances. My favorite one is the Givenchy Ange ou Demon which is a strong charismatic oriental composition and sensual at the same time. But in the summer I like mostly fresh fragrances (Yves Rocher – Naturell). On my wishlist this summer is the fresh perfume from JR - John Richmond.

8. Do you have a favorite store to shop at for clothes?

I am not very picky, when I like something it doesn’t matter from which shop it is.

9. What blogging habit gets on your nerves?

When somebody ask you to follow each other and after the first visit and comment never comes back to the blog. The point is to have readers, not a big number of followers who don’t even read your posts, no?

10. What type of music do you like listening to? Any favorite artists or songs? 

I mostly like rock music, but I also listen to other kind of music from the 80 and 90, depending on my mood, it can be classical, salsa, dance or any kind of music. I love to dance :) Usually I listen the radio trough the day at my job. 
I don’t have a favorite artist.

11. Are you satisfied with your job?

I cannot complain!
Anybody can take this Get to know me TAG, but I am going to tag 5 of my fellow bloggers:

Pink Box

This month I purchased my first Pink Box, which is the Romanian alternative for the American Birch Box. The pictures are talking for themselves, but I will write you down all the products that I’ we got in this beautiful pink box, which is my daughters favorite:
Full size: Flormar nail polish, Body and face lotion Bioderma 100 ml (after sun)
Small size: Shower gel Bronnley, Eucerin foot cream 5 ml, 70 pices Family cotton pads and a small bracelet with a Swarovski crystal which is perfect for my little girl.

Luna aceasta am comandat si eu un Pink Box, alternativa romaneasca a Birch Box-ului din SUA. Imaginile vorbesc de la sine, dar va enumar tot ce a continut aceasta cutiuta minunata roz, pe care fiica mea nu il mai lasa din mana :)
Produse full size: oja Flormar, Bioderma Photoderm - Lotiune reparatoare dupa plaja 100 ml
Small size: Gel de dus Bronnley cu aroma de portocale si iasomieEucerin - crema reparatoare cu 10% uree pentru picioare 5ml, Dischete demachiante Family - 70 buc si o surpriza mica o bratara cu un mic cristal Swarovski (perfecta pentru fiica mea)

The first thing I used was the shower gel, which has a strong scent of orange and jasmine. I noticed that this shower gel is more consistent than the usual ones, a consistency similar to honey, so I do not need to use a large amount when I am taking a bath. I tried the Eucerin foot cream, I have quite dehydrated heels, so it was a welcome product for me and I am considering to buy it in the full size because it does its job, really moisturizes and repairs the skin!
The Flormar nail polish has a light pink color, perfect for this summer!
The other products I will use it with the time, but the overall conclusion is that I am happy with my first Pink Box and more than likely I will buy one some other time too.

Primul lucru care l-am folosit a fost gelul de dus, care are un parfum puternic de portocala si iasomnie. Ceea ce am observat fata de alte geluri de dus, acesta este mult mai consistenta, ca si mierea, nu trebuie utilizata o cantitate foarte mare la dus. Am incercat si lotiunea Eucerin, eu am picioare, calcai destul de deshidratate, astfel a fost un produs bine venit si iau in considerare sa il cumpar in full size pentru ca isi face treaba, hidrateaza si repara cu adevarat!
Oja Flormar are culoarea roz, absolut perfecta pentru aceasta vara! Se potriveste perfect la un ten bronzat!
Restul produselor le voi folosii cu timpul lotiunea Bioderma va fi perfecta in timpul concediului. Ca si o concluzie finala eu sunt multumita de primul meu Pink Box si mai mult ca sigur ca o sa il mai cumpar.

Water mable

This week I was the person who chose the theme for the group We Love Nails, my choice was water marble. One night I created water marble mani with three polishes: pink, red and yellow. After I completed it and I cleaned my nails I realized that I actually do not like the end result, so I cleaned all off and made a new one. I didn't had enough time so I used the technique on my thumb and ring finger but this time with orange and yellow polish. What do you think about this orange polish? I found it by mistake in a mall and again I couldn't resist, I had to buy it. It is a product made in Bulgaria and it is very cheap 1 euro. I think this color is perfect for this summer!

La grupul We Love Nails eu am fost persoana care a ales tema pentru saptamana acesta: manichiura in apa. Intr-o seara am creat o manichiura in apa cu trei oje: roz, rosu si galben. Dupa ce am finalizat-o si am curatat mainile mi-am dat seama ca de fapt nici nu imi place rezultatul final, asa ca am sters tot si am facut unul nou. Dat fiind faptul ca nu am avut mult timp am folosit tehnica doar pe unghia mare si cea inelara. Combinatia de culoare la aceasta manichiura este portocaliu cu galben. Va place aceasta oja? Am gasit-o din gresala intr-un mall, parca imi facea cu ochiul cand l-am vazut. Este un produs din Bulgaria si e foarte ieftina 4.50 lei sic red ca este o culoare perfecta pentru aceasta vara!

The perfect copy of Chanel Peridot

I saw this nail polish on several blogs and I was anxious to try it myself. I went several times to the DM store (Drogerie Markt) because they sell exclusively the s-he Stylezone 317 nail polish, but it always was sold out. No wonder, it is a gorgeous color. But I was persistent and now I am the happy owner of this wonder polish. It is very hard to describe the color, it depends on how the light situation is, it has golden-green shades with blue and brown reflections, reminds me of an insect or a peridot crystal. I applied it in two layers and it dries very quickly, it was not necessary to add a top coat. The price is accessible to the amount of 10 ml, it is 2,50 Euro. What do you think? It became my favorite nail polish!

Am vazut aceasta oja pe mai multe bloguri si abia asteptam sa il am si eu. Am mers de mai multe ori la magazinul DM (Drogerie Markt) pentru ca ei comercializeaza in exclusivitate oja s-he Stylezone 317, dar stocul era incontinuu epuizat. Nu ma mir, este o culoare superba. Dar la urma urmei am reusit sa il gasesc si sunt bucuroasa posesoare a acestei minunatii de oje. Este foarte greu de descris ca si culoare, depinde cum bate lumina pe ea, se pot observa nuante auriu-verzui cu reflexii albastre si aramii, care aminteste de culoarea unei insecte sau a cristalelor peridot. Am aplicat-o in doua straturi si s-a uscat foarte rapid, nu mai era necesar sa adaug si un top coat. Pretul este accesibil 11.39 lei la cantitatea de 10 ml. Cum vi se pare? A devenit oja mea preferata!

Cherry pie

It is the period of cherry’s ... yummy I would eat all day long seasonal fruits.
Este perioada cireselor, visinelor…yummy as-i manca toata ziua fructe de sezon.

In the weekend together with my daughter we picked cherries and sour cherries in the garden, her wish was to make a pie or a cake, but as soon as possible.

Easy, no? I had to remove the pits, which I hate because it is a very messy job, the preparing of the pie took about 10-15 minutes plus about 20 minutes in the oven.

Ingredients: a pastry dough (approx. 200 g), 500 gr. cherries and sour cherries (pitted), 3-4 tablespoons of brown sugar, 2 sachets of vanilla sugar, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.

Sfarsit de saptamana am cules cu fiica mea din gradina cirese si visine, dorinta ei a fost sa pregatesc o prajitura, dar cat mai rapid posibil.

Usor, nu? In afara de faptul ca a trebuit sa curat fructele, adica sa scot samburele, pregatirea prajiturei a durat aproximativ 10-15 minute + cat a stat in cuptor.

Ingrediente: un blat de foietaj (aprox. 200 gr), 500 gr. cirese si visine (fara samburi), 3-4 linguri de zahar brun, 2 plicuri de zahar vanilat, 1 lingurita de scortisoara.

I mixed the cleaned fruits with the sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. I put the dough in a pan and over that the cherry mixture and sat on it a few pieces of thin dough. I introduced it in the oven and after about 20 minutes I got a juicy, sweet sour pie! How do you make your fruit pies?

Am lasat la decongelat un blat de foietaj, am curatat fructele si le-am amestecat cu zaharul, scortisoara si zaharul vanilat. Am asezat foietajul intr-o tava (forma de tort, ca altceva nu am avut) peste care am pus fructele si am asezat pe ea pentru decor cateva bucati subtiri de foietaj. Am introdus in cuptor si dupa aproximativ 20 minute am obtinut o prajitura zemoasa, dulce acrisoara!  Voi ati pregatit ceva cu cirese?

Colorful retro design

I am back with an another colorful and easy to create manicure, this time I used ... 8  polishes. I chose for the base two light shades, and using the dotting tool I applied colorful dots of different sizes. It's a funky design, perfect for this hot summer weather, right? I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

Din nou o manichiura colorata si usor de creat, de data aceasta am folosit…8 oje intens colorate. Am ales culori mai pale pentru baza, peste care cu ajutorul instumentului de punctat am aplicat punctulete de diferite marimi in culori diferite. Este un design vesel, perfecta pentru aceasta vara torida, nu? Va urez un weekend minunat!

Dry marble

Those who do not have time to do water marble manicure have the option to make a dry marble. It is a simple technique that does not require extreme accuracy. In my case I used a light color for the base and before it dried I applied dots from three colored nail polish, green, blue and yellow. I mixed these colors with the dotting tool, but it can be done with a toothpick, and the final result can look like this.

Cei care nu au timp sa faca o manichiura cu apa au varianta uscata, adica dry marble. Este o tehnica extreme de simpla care nu necesita acuratete. In cazul meu am folosit la baza o culoare deschisa pe care inainte sa se usuce am aplicat cateva punctulete de oja colorata, verde, albastru si galben. Luati instrumentul de punctat sau un scobitor si incepeti sa amestecati aceste culori, cam acesta va fi efectul final. 

A lovely new blog

A very good friend and colleague decided after a long thinking time to write her thoughts and passions in a blog. I am very glad for her that she took this decision. Feel free to visit her blog here, you won't be sorry! I made a proposal for her blog header, what do you think about it?

O foarte buna prietena si colega a decis dupa o perioada destul de indelungata sa isi scrie gandurile si pasiunile intr-un blog. Ma bucur foarte mult pentru ea, ca a aluat aceasta decizie. Daca doriti puteti vizita blogul ei aici, nu o sa va para rau! I-am facut o propunere de header, cum vi se pare?

Inspired by my favorite movie

The topic of this week at the WE LOVE NAILS group was inspiration from a favorite movie. I automatically thought of a classical movie with Marilyn Monroe, but after all I painted on my nails the well known portrait of Audrey Hepburn from the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's. This movie is a memorable one, not like my manicure, but I hope you enjoy it, even if I am not so happy with it, but I promise that I will try it some other time again until I will be happy with the final result!

Tema din aceasta saptamana a grupului We love nails a fost inspratia dintr-un film preferat. Automat m-am gandit la un film clasic cu Marylin Monroe, dar la urma urmei am ajuns sa pictez portretul cunoscut a lui Audrey Hepburn din filmul Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Acest film este unul memorabil, nu ca si manichiura mea, dar sper sa va placa, chiar daca eu nu sunt atat de multumita de ea, dar va promit ca o s ail refac si sper sa fie un rezultat mai fericit!

I received two awards from Marcela, thank you with all my heart, and at the same time I did not forget about the awards offered by DeeDemi, Lou and Sangy thank you for your appreciation and to all my lovely readers and followers! 

Am primit doua premii de la Marcela pe care le multumesc din tot sufletul si in acelasi timp nu am uitat nici de premiile oferite de catre DeeDemi, Sangy si Lou va multumesc tuturora de apreciere! 

Not to break this chain I will give these awards to the following talented bloggers (if you want you can offer this awards to another bloggers). It's hard to choose because I follow many blogs, but this time the 10 bloggers I give this awards are:

Ca sa nu rup acest lant ofer si eu aceste premii la urmatorii blogeri talentati, daca doriti o puteti oferii si voi la alti preferati ai vostri. Imi este greu sa aleg ca urmaresc multe bloguri, dar de data aceasta urmatorii 10 sunt:

Pistachio green with earthy brown

Again, I could not resist the temptation and I went in a shop and found two polishes witch in my opinion are perfect as combination of shades. First I noticed the brown one, which has a lovely shine and after that I had to find an another one that matches this earth shade ... I always precede this way. I was very anxious to apply the polishes, on my way home I was thinking which design to make, but the final manicure was a total disappointment, the dried polish was full with air bubbles. Bad, right?

Din nou, nu am reusit sa rezist tentatiei si intr-un magazin am gasit doua oje care dupa parerea mea se potrivesc ca si nuanta. Nu sunt doua culori la moda dar nu sunt nici urate dupa parearea mea. Prima data mi-a atras atentia lacul maroniu, care stralucea foarte frumos si dupa aceea cautam o nuanta care sa se potriveasca cu ea...asa procedez de fiecare data. Abia am asteptat sa le aplic pe unghii, in drum spre casa ma si gandeam la un model pe care sa il creez. Am si finalizat manichiura si la uscare dezamagire totala, rezultatul finit era plin cu bule de aer. Urat de tot, nu?

I could not imagine why this happened, until I realized that I used a clear base coat that was expired. Next day I bought a new one from Kallos, which gives a beautiful shine to the nails and it contains calcium. after applying the base cot I made an another design and these are the results. What do you think?

Nu puteam sa imi inchipui din ce cauza sa intamplat acest lucru, pana mi-am dat seama ca am folosit la baza un lac transparent care era expirata. Urmatoarea zi am cumparat un nou lac transparent de la Kallos, care da o stralucire superba unghiei si contine si calciu si am creat o alta manichiura cu acelasi oje. Cum vi se pare rezulatul?

Blue & Gold, there is a connection

I am continuing with an another simple mani, this time I used for the base the lovely blue Miracle polish from Flormar and with the help of the fan brush I applied a golden no name nail polish. I put it on the ring finger and thumb a few gold glitter particles. 

Continui cu o manichiura simpla, de data aceasta am folosit la baza culoarea miraculoasa de la Flormar, adica cea albastra pe care l-ati mai vazut in postarile mele mai vechi. Cu ajutorul pensulei eveantai am aplicat o oja, no name aurie. Pe unghia degetului inelar si cel mare am asezat cateva particule sclipitoare aurii.

Light pink

Sorry but today I can not post a manicure with the theme free hand, for the WE LOVE NAILS group, because I am very busy with an important project and I can not relax enough to make a more elaborate mani. So for the next few day I will post the simplest ever manis, which anybody can make in a few minutes :)

This is one of them, I used two colors a light pink and a blue one from Gabrini and I added to my ring finger four middle sized square rhinestones. I love this light pink polish which has a pearly shimmer. 

Imi pare rau dar azi nu pot posta o manichiura cu tema free hand, pentru grupul We Love NAILS, pentru ca sunt foarte ocupata cu un proiect important si nu pot relaxa suficient pentru a face o manichiura mult mai elaborata. Deci, pentru cateva zile voi posta cele mai simple manichiuri, ceea ce oricine poate crea in doar cateva minute :) 

Aceasta este una dintre ele, am folosit doua culori, un roz pal si albastru perlat de la Gabrini si am adaugat pe degetul inelar patru pietre decorative patrate de dimensiune medie. Imi place acesta oja roz, care are un luciu perlat.Voua va place?

Strawberry-misu NOT Tiramisu

I think everyone knows the famous Italian cake with cocoa and coffee, the Tiramisu. I changed the recipe because my daughter can not eat anything that contains coffee ... and Strawberry-misu was born :)

Consider ca toata lumea cunoaste faimoasa prjitura italiana cu cacao, cafea Tiramisu. Eu am modificat reteta din cauza ca la fiica mea nu pot sa ii dau nimic ceea ce contine cafea... si astfel s-a nascut CAPSU MISU :)

Ingredients: 500 gr. strawberry, ladyfingers approx. 20 pcs., 250 gr. mascarpone, 200 ml whipped cream, 2 tablets of white chocolate. For the syrup: 300 ml water, 100 gr. sugar, zest of 2 lemons

Ingrediente: 500 gr. capsuni, piscoturi aprox. 20 buc., 250 gr. mascarpone, 200 ml frisca lichida, 2 tablete de ciocolata alba. Sirop: 300 ml apa, 100 gr. zahar, coaja a 2 lamai

Crushed or mix together in a blender the strawberries and after that mix it together with the mascarpone cream (take care to not form lumps). Melt the two tablets of chocolate and mix it with the cream. Beat the whipped cream and add it to the mascarpone, strawberries cream. 

Sfaramati sau mixati intr-un blender capsunile pe care amestecatil cu crema mascarpone in asa mod incat sa nu se formeze cocoloase. Topiti cele doua tablete de ciocolata si amestecati-o cu crema. Bateti frisca si adaugat-o usor 
cu crema de mascarpone si capsuni.

Heat 300 ml water, add sugar and the zest of two lemons. Cook until the sugar melts and then let the syrup cool. 

Puneti la foc 300 ml apa, in care adaugati zaharul si coaja rasa a doua lamai. Lasati pe foc pana se topeste zaharul dupa care lasati la racit siropul. 

Take one piece after another of ladyfingers and put it carefully in the syrup. When the ladyfingers are well soaked make a layer of it in a bigger plate, after that a layer of mascarpone, strawberry cream and again another ladyfinger layer. 
The last layer must be cream. 

Luati cate o bucata de piscot si absorbiti-o in sirop cu multa grija si asezat-o intr-o tava. Dupa un strat de piscot puneti crema si din nou un strat de piscot. 
Ultimul strat sa fie una de crema. 

Leave it in the refrigerator as much as possible, even one day and serve it with little pieces of strawberry and cocoa. Bon appetite!

Lasati la frigider cat mai mult, chiar o zi si serviti-o cu bucatele de capsuni 
si putina cacao. Pofta buna!

Green as Emerald

I found a beautiful shade of matte green from Gabrini which one I applied on my nails quit hard because it dried very fast and left stripe marks ... but after drying the surprise was that everything that seemed bad at first disappeared at the end. 
I applied a white flower with the help of the Konad plate and decorated each nail with a medium size pail green rhinestone. Unfortunately the lovely polish lasted two days on my nails after that it began to crack pretty ugly.

Am gasit o nuanta superba de mat verde de la Gabrini pe care l-am aplicat destul de greu ca se usuca foarte repede oja si la prima vedere lasa dungi...dar surpriza era ca tot ce ce parea urat la inceput a disparut la final. 
Am aplicat o floare alba cu ajutorul placutei Konad pe care am atasat un stras de dimensiune medie de culoare verde deschis. Din pacate acest lac a rezistat 2 zile pe unghii dupa care la varfuri a inceput sa se crape destul de urat.
