Delilah Make-up Masterclass @ Stripes

Delilah Make-up Masterclass @ Stripes

Hi darlings, As much as my blog is focused on fashion and not make-up, with all this girlyness inside me you can imagine that I do like a bit of make up talk. Actually, maybe more than a bit. I admire all the effort that goes into a face contoured better than a painting, and I truly believe it’s a lot of hard work. However, I also think that there’s a time and place for a contoured face. Photoshoots – perfect, a big event or a night out – sure, but I’m not an adept on wearing it on a daily basis. Mostly because I really like natural looks, I believe that with the right products you can get a lovely texture and look really nice with less make-up than you’d think! Also, I am not a morning person, so even if I’d like contouring as a daily make up – ain’t nobody got time for that!  And lastly, I don’t like looking the same all the time, which is why I prefer a natural look during day time and if I miraculously wake up earlier and have the time, I will create a sharp eye liner, if not, I’m definitely a fan of a bold lipstick to get you through the day!  And yes, I speak so confidently about it because my beliefs have been confirmed by a make up expert, which makes me hold on to them even stronger! Rupert Kingston, Creative Director and Co-Founder of Delilah, a luxury British cosmetics brand, came to Worcester to show us how to do the perfect summer make-up!  The event...
Vogue Festival Day 2

Vogue Festival Day 2

Hello babes, The second and final outfit from the Vogue Festival is finally up now! I know, it took a while, but I really loved wandering back through my mind to that weekend, now that it’s been a month since I came back! Similar to my outfit for the first day (you can see it here) I went for jeans and a vintage top. I dropped the heels and wore a more casual look by walking in these Oxord style shoes. This shirt is a very, very old one that my mum almost had to convince me to keep a few years ago, and I’m so glad I did! It belonged to her, and I always liked something about it, but I never really knew where to wear it or what with, so I ended up never wearing it! I thought this would be a good combination so I took it with me to London and I’m glad I did. As I travelled only for the weekend, I had a very light luggage hence why I tried to keep my outfits simple. However, this is the Vogue Festival we’re talking about, so of course I wanted to wear stylish looks and pretty clothes, so I think I managed to do both things – travel light and dress accordingly. This top got a lot of appreciation on the day as everyone was asking me where is it from, and was not expecting my answer! If you have followed me for a while now, you must have noticed that I really love the mixture of brands and vintage pieces, I feel like...
Freedom

Freedom

Hello darlings, How has your week been? Good or bad, Saturday is here to cheer you up, and no let’s not already think about tomorrow afternoon and the Monday anxiety. It’s only Saturday. So good vibes only, as it’s the weekend. Today I am sharing with you these pictures that don’t make me think of anything less than the weekend or okay, maybe a holiday. And no, it’s not only because of the sun (that was melting my face – UK weather take a note, where is that sun now?) it’s because they made me think of why I love fashion and why I am so into it and eventually what made me start my little blog. It’s because of that feeling of freedom. Whenever I stay clueless in front of my wardrobe it’s because I don’t know what to wear  think of how I can dress however I want to dress and I can be whoever I want to be for that day because I have this freedom of choice, the freedom of owning my style and of looking and feeling as different or as similar to the crowd as I want to. And that’s amazing. That’s also what made me start my blog in the first place, the fact that I wanted to share with you my evolving style and how I like to use my creativity to create new outfits, new styles and new combinations that might only fit me or that you can get inspired from and create a whole different outfit that will fit you. Because we’re all different, but we’re all guilty of...
Destray Picks: Summer Bottoms

Destray Picks: Summer Bottoms

Aaaand it’s Monday again! This week I am continuing my summer picks with the best bottoms to be worn this summer. You know, one and probably one of the main reasons why I am so into fashion is because I don’t really like routine – so I don’t like looking the same, or if inspired enough not even similar 2 days in a row. And I always thought the bottom part of your outfit plays a key role in that. Because you can wear the same pair of jeans and different tops and chances are you’re looking quite the same everyday. But if you wear jeans, then a skirt, then a jumpsuit and so on, your outfits would really look different. So today I am giving you 10 ideas to spice up your outfits and make them look really summerish. Hope you get inspired, enjoy! Long skirt In my eyes, long skirts have always said it out loud and clear – beach walk. There is such a nice feeling to walk by the sea and have the wind blow your skirt and feel the sea breeze. Okay, day dreaming about a holiday now, I shall stop. 2. Short skirt But of course, then you need an urban outfit too – shopping session or drinks with your ladies? This. 3. Cullotes Okay, with these I went from hate to love. It took me a while, my mum actually tried to make me like them a whileeee ago, but I wouldn’t have any of it. And now, yes mum, you were right, I love them, can I have them back please?...
Vogue Festival Day 1

Vogue Festival Day 1

After quite some days, here it is – my outfit from the first day of the Vogue Festival. It’s been a while but I still have the same strong feelings about it – I loved it! Being surrounded by fashion minded people and inspiring outfits was amazing! The first day was all about workshops so it was a great chance for me to reinforce my fan girling for Alexa Chung, and to adore even more the French style! More over, it was a day of inspiration career wise, as I was admiring all these people for how focused and hard working they are and I was filled with motivation to be the same and stick to my goals, and who knows, maybe I will work in fashion one day too? As for my outfit, you have to know that I travelled light, very light, so I had a few key pieces that I could work around with. And for both days I chose to mix a vintage piece (courtesy of my stylish mum, of course) with a high street brand. And I loved the results! For my first day I went with this blazer that is very close to my heart (hence why you’ve seen it before hehe) because I really like the colour and the way it’s tailored, paired it with black jeans and added simple heels to it. Of course, I wanted to make it a bit special so I included a little accessory – a black bow. I was really happy with my choice and I really liked the way it all went together with the...
Destray Picks: Summer Tops

Destray Picks: Summer Tops

Hello babes, That’s it, it’s summer! June is here, sun is shining, our minds are flying far away to beautiful beaches, and last but not least, our wardrobes demand to look more summerish. I’ve started created my summer 2016 wardrobe a while ago, but you know, when the weather is gloomy and windy, you don’t really feel like buying crop tops, and instead you run to the coziest of sweaters! So now that it’s finally warmer, I can indeed finalize my summer looks! Throughout June I will share with you my favourite summer pieces for this year so that by the end of the month you’ll feel fully inspired to show off your summer looks! This Monday I’m showing you my favourite tops! Some I own, some are on my wishlist, but regardless, they’re all musts for my summer! I must say, and my friends know, I’m not the best when it comes to buying tops – apart from that 99.9% of the time ending up buying a dress (oops) I have this feeling that when I buy a top I want it to be special and unique. And then I go home and I wonder why I don’t have any basics. Well, think about it, Diana. Sooo yeah, I’m working on it! Which is why I decided to make the best of both worlds and find simple tops that actually have a little detail, or they’re tailored in a special way or just choose them in a cute colour so that maybe, just maybe, I end up actually having tops in my wardrobe too, and not just dresses....
Emotions

Emotions

Hello darlings,   I figured it was about time to post a little update. I have so many pictures to show you and so many things to tell you, but every day gets busier and busier and I never get to finaly finish a post. Ever since I posted the last article I have been through so many things, so many feelings. I was a part of the first Agent Conference organised by the University of Worcester, which gave me the chance to meet people from all around the world. It was a great – exhasuting, for sure – but interesting week! Right when the conference ended, my family came around for a week, I cannot believe it’s already been a month since they have been here! They came so that we can celebrate Romanian Easter together, and so we did. And then we travelled around, and spent some good, well missed time together. After that, it was back to work. And I had planned a busy month for myself, so May flew by with me running around. I took a 2 days break to attend the Vogue Festival, and then it ended with a beautiful week of celebrations – societies, sports teams, volunteers, everyone got their recognition for working hard and having a great year. And so I told you all about my May in a paragraph. See, that seems easy. But it wasn’t quite just like that. May was a month full of emotions. I have been grateful to see my family, sad to see them go, exhausted by lack of sleep, nostalgic to think that my...
All things Vogue

All things Vogue

Hello darlings, I know I haven’t posted an Inspirational Monday in a while, but I thought it’d be a good moment to do that as this Monday comes right after a weekend filled with so much inspiration! If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you’d know I spent the weekend in London attending the Vogue Festival. It was the first edition I have ever attended and obviously, I was really excited! And it was all worth it, it was a great experience! The festival went on for 2 days and it was filled with a lot of great talks and masterclasses as well as a huge tent in Kensignton Gardens where fashionistas could take advantage of great offers and have some amazing experiences. The talks that I chose to attend on Saturday were Alexa Chung’s Style Clinic with Lauren Santo Domingo and Derek Blasberg and “The Allure of Paris cool” with Isabel Marant and Caroline de Maigret in conversation with Lisa Armstrong. The first show was very interesting and showed a different perspective of fashion, from 3 people with very different styles and at the same time, different inputs in the fashion world, but they all agreed that in order to make it into the fashion world you have to work your a** off, no joke! That, and that the fashion world is not such a cruel one after all and you can still be a good person and work in fashion! The second show made me feel like I am in France at a small table in front of a cafe sipping on some good wine and...
Tourist in Oxford

Tourist in Oxford

Hello beautiful souls, How have you been? I’ve missed writing to you, but I hope everything is going well! Another month has passed us by and look at us strolling straight into May in a few days! I told you about a couple of weeks ago that I went on a 2 days trip to feed my wanderlust and I shared with you on Instagram pictures from the places I’ve visited. However, it was about time to sit down and tell you more about the trip and my outfit choices and so on. So, let’s start with the beginning of the trip. Oh man… So if you know me, you’d know I’m not exactly a morning person which makes me a late person lots of times, which is also something that I am working on. But if you know me well, you know I hate being late for important things and more especially for things where other people depend on me/ on me being there. So on the Friday before the trip I scheduled my alarm bright and early for Saturday morning. I was going to tidy up the room too and have breakfast and put on some make up and so on. What actually happened was – I woke up completely disoriented on what, where, when and looked at the time and tried to wake myself up and remember where I was supposed to be. And it turns out I woke up 7 minutes after the time I was supposed to leave the house. Great, huh? Turns out I set my alarm on weekdays only and of course,...
Spiky Sun

Spiky Sun

Hello darlings, I’m enjoying more and more these spring days. The sun has been rather spiky, but still it has made an appearance almost daily lately so I cannot complain (I live in England after all). As I said I will, I spent my weekend travelling and it was awesome. I had an urge to travel at least for a bit and this short trip fed my wanderlust…for now. Even though it was quite short, I had time to shoot some pictures so I will tell you more about the trip when I show you my travel outfit! Still, with the Awards Ceremony on Friday and the trip on Saturday & Sunday, this weekend left me longing for… a weekend haha! The lack of sleep starts slowly kicking in so I’m trying to manage my time the best way I can so that I get to rest at least the minimum that keeps me going. I don’t know about you, but when I am tired, all I want to wear is super cozy clothes and comfy shoes. Definitely comfy shoes. So I tend to go for a more casual sporty look. I had my eye on these type of shoes for a while now and at the beginning I didn’t know how I felt about them, then I started to like them and then I found these pretty white ones on sale in H&M and I thought I’d give them a go. There are one of the most comfortable pair of shoes I’ve ever worn. Good investment – checked! I’ve noticed that lately I would go for this style...
