Cannes Film Festival memories

Cannes Film Festival memories

Hello darlings, It’s been a while and so, so many things have happened! That many that it will take me more than one post to tell you everything without you getting bored or lost in all my tales! So I’ll start with the most impactful and recent one – my work at Cannes Film Festival. Even if the festival ended only two weeks ago, I already struggle to remember everything in detail because of how dynamic everything was. The festival took place between the 17th and the 28th May this year and it was my first year attending it. I flew over with a team of PR professionals in my first graduate adult adventure as a PR & Marketing person. I wrote articles, liaised with press, was part of the organising team of a Celebrity Suite, met lots and lots of people and tasted the craziness of what goes behind a huge event like this. Everyone sees the festival as a glamorous experience and now looking at my pictures, I realise why, but truth is, as an insider, as someone that works behind the scenes, I can tell you it is not all pink and bubbly, but rather rushed, last minute, spontaneous and exhausting. Not that glamorous, huh? But at the end of the day, the reason why it’s so exhausting is that there is so much to do during the day and so many events to attend during the night, that there is little to no time left for sleeping or eating! Truth is, they were some 2 weeks hard to keep up with, but I have learnt...
Summertime Sadness

Summertime Sadness

I woke up this morning, well, struggled to wake up as it was an easy morning with nothing much planned and that doesn’t happen often these days so I wanted it to last for as long as possible. Anyways, I woke up being cold, thinking about warmer days and summer thrills. But then I realised I did not have many more late mornings or free time, apart from my few weeks of holidays, in which I regularly woke up early to make the most of my time with family and friends or if I was at the seaside to get to the beach and get some tan on. I feel like the lifestyle I am perpetually choosing is making me be a morning person. I still am not, by nature, but I “have” to be. Either to get the most out of my day or to get everything done. I am not enjoying the actual morning bit, but then I must say I enjoy having more time to get things done. However, in the rush that I live in, I am craving a holiday and couldn’t be happier that Christmas is coming, but I am a very summery person, so what I really crave is a summer holiday. Light dresses, pretty sunsets and that summer wind that gently touches your skin and leaves it tanned. So, with all these thoughts, I remembered about this summer photo shoot that I haven’t had posted yet. It was right at the beginning of my holiday, so I was not tanned AT ALL (see super white legs) but I was very happy, that...

Friyaaaaay!! Well, it’s been a long week. A very long week. It’s been rushed and it’s been full of to do’s so I am looking forward to a little break aka the weekend. You know how they say that you should get away from the city for a break? Well I have always had my own ways of doing things, so what do I do for a break? I escape to a bigger city. I am looking forward to a weekend of city rush, just because it would not be me rushing, I would be nicely walking around, enjoying a bit of early Christmas feeling at the Christmas markets and hopefully get to see a bit more of this big city – Bristol, as I have only seen snippets so far. I’ve shot this outfit last time I was in Bristol at Cabot Circus. It’s the kind of outfit one would wear at the weekend – laid back with the final touch being a big, cozy coat. That I got as a bargain at a Romanian seasonal fair, by the way – scooore! However, there is one element I think about when I dress in a sweatshirt or hoodie – and lately I do it quite a lot, because it’s cozy and warm and you know – winter is coming. That is make up or accesories, or in this case both, as it was a city outfit. I feel like I want to make it stand out a bit, otherwise it won’t be much different than the outfit I wear while I’m at home Netflixing. So, of course, a...
On The Go

On The Go

Hi beautiful, How’s everything? Do you feel like fall is taking over? Because as much as I don’t want to let go of the heat and that summery sun, I feel like I need to give in and embrace once again my love for sweaters and hot drinks. Just not yet, you know? I know, I’m crazy, it’s mid October, what am I expecting? But truth is my summer went by so quick, so did September and then I embarkee on a journey around Romania that started with me in a short sleeves dresses and ended with me in a full on winter coat. And all that in just 11 days. Which is why I’m not ready yet! However, while I get used to wearing warm clothes and hoping that England will surprise me with some sun (I know my chances are not really the highest) let me tell you about my latest trip. I travelled around Romania together with a representative from the University of Worcester to represent the University at RIUF, a universities fair that happens across the country. Days were long and exhausting, but there were so many motivated and ambitious prospective students, I was surprised! 15 or 16 years old that know exactly what they want, that is amazing, I had no idea at the time..or now. The travelling was also worthy as I visited cities I have never been to before, like Iasi and Timisoara that left me speechless, I had no idea about the beauty that hides withing them. You can see more pictures from these cities on my Instagram. That made me...

Hello, hello! Yes, I decided to blog even while on holiday – I know I said I probably won’t, but here I am! I think by now my friends have realised that you cannot keep me away from what I invest my time in, nope, not even on holiday. And trust me, they’ve tried. And I felt bad for it for a while, I promise all I want to do when I’m with them is give them my time, but at the same time I am very invested in all the things I do, so I will do them all with passion or not at all. So I will be checking spreadsheets, updating pages and creating strategies, especially write blog posts because that’s when I am most creative – when I’m on holiday and spend my time well! So yes, my friends, you inspire me to create more, to do more, to be a better me, and if that means no breaks during holidays, I’m sorry, but that’s how it will be. You know you love me hehe! As I started my holiday in Bucharest with my bestie, we attended Rihanna, Steve Aoki and Sia’s concerts. We had fun, we danced, we sang and (what we probably enjoyed most after all) we slept a loooot. Finally, I started getting some rest. So in between sleeping sessions and concerts we visited this beautiful place called Palatul MogoÈ™oaia (The MogoÈ™oaia Palace) and its surroundings. It was enchanting. It felt like a fairytale. Very, very beautiful. I was so charmed and stolen away by the surroundings that (now I realise) I didn’t...

Hello my darlings, I’ve been craving writing here for quite a while now. I know I disappeared from the blog and social media almost completely in the past few weeks, and trust me, it wasn’t great. I’ve discovered that living with the head in the clouds and being always super trustful is not amazing, as you might find yourself with your phone being stolen. And then you realise how much of your life actually consists of you holding that little device in your hand… So while realising that, I came to the conclusion that a 3 weeks phone detox was not that bad, I just wish I planned for it instead of having to pay for its cause. Anywaysss, things happen for a reason and you learn best from your own mistakes so I came to terms with all that happened and I went back to spreading positive vibes only! Another effect of me being phoneless was that I had more free time! If you ask my friends they will roll their eyes and say that I barely ever have free time as I live on a schedule and always have things planned. Which might be true, buuuut in my defense, I do try and make them part of my schedule as much as I can! So while I did not have a phone, I spent more time with my friends, more time taking long walks, having deep conversations and laughing out loud. I read more, I planned more (old habits die hard) and I got to enjoy the offline life a bit more. Don’t get me wrong, I...
