Happy New Year!

     2012 is almost gone and I'm anxious to see what next year has in store. This year hasn't been my favourite one. It may have even been the worst. But I still had a lot of positive experiences that I am very grateful for.

      I hope 2013 will be amazing. In a way,it's one of the most important years of my life. You could say a little piece of the puzzle that I call my life will be placed. And it's up to me to place it. It's up to me to end up where I want to end up, to fight for what I want.

        I'm happy because I can feel I finally have the determination,the fire that will help me succeed.
        This week has been almost perfect. I spent a lot of time with Radu, I read ( I'm currently reading 'The English Patient' ), I saw some amazing movies ( The Hobbit, Cloud Atlas, Rear Window, Strangers on a Train ) and I pretty much enjoyed my holiday routine.


        I hope this new year will bring you all the happiness you deserve. Lots of love!                                


     Today I realised I'm one of the luckiest girls on Earth. I have some amazing friends, a great boyfriend and an amazing sister. Christmas is the perfect time to be grateful for everything, to leave the bad times behind and to want to become a better person.

                                                  some of the presents from my friends 

       I hope you're all having a great Christmas with your loved ones! Merry Christmas!


on my winter break

     I can already feel I'm on my winter break. Although I didn't sleep a lot, I am full of energy and I know I can finish a lot of my projects during these 3 weeks.

         I have finally reached that phase in which I can divide my time between studying for exams and going out and it's very satisfying. Now I don't feel guilty everytime I choose to spend my time cozied up in a tea house.

         I've already started season 3 of 'The Walking Dead' and it's been a long time since I got so hooked up on a tv show. I can't wait to see what happens next.

                                 you already know I'm kind of obsessed with rings, don't you?    

          This year, I'll be spending Christmas at the countryside with my family. Although I'll be with my family, I'm sure I'll have a lot of fun.


           I love it when I find a good song on a tv show and this one is just great:


holiday plans

  I'm officially free for about 3 weeks and I plan on enjoying every single moment. So if you ever wonder what I could be doing, I may be:

  • sleeping
  • reading Stieg Larsson's last part of the trilogy
  • watching 'The Walking Dead'
  • eating soup
  • drinking wine
  • listening to Michael Buble
  • skating
  • redecorating my room for the umpteenth time
  • spending time with the boy

Currently inspired by:

    Christmas is coming fast and I haven't even bought all the presents. I love searching for that perfect gift. Even if that means spending a day in the crowded shops of Bucharest.

       Winter in my town is not nearly as amazing as you see in all the photos that seem to have conquered Facebook or Tumblr. But it's still winter and I kind of have that cheerful mood on. So I'll make the best of it!

                                                        great idea for a Christmas tree
