a GLAMOURous day

Thursday- November  18, 2015, 11:00 AM , Stejarii Country Club Bucharest

After I had sign something, I was ready to wait until we were going to have done our make-up, when the Editor in Chief, Diana Tofan came and said: “Hi, I’m Diana”! Honestly, I was a bit shocked, I was like :“ Yes, I know who you are… :))))” , it was my first time with people from this area and now I love them more than I used to. They started to done our make-up and our hair. Everything was perfect, to those dark lipstick colors to the hairdryer. The music was on. It was an amazing sound, girls talking, the music, a can of soda and  a play. They had done my make-up and hair and I was more than happy. We were more and more girls. I met my other “colleagues” , amazing girls, cute blogs and the world is smaller than I thought. At about 2 PM they gave us a sandwich, then we just stayed, we talked , a lot. We changed facebook, instragram, fashion ideas, we talked about everyone. While we were going at this couch, at the other couch, two florists were doing a flower wall with a silver GLAMOUR sign.

Dupa ce am semnat ceva, eram gata sa ma inarmez cu multa rabdare pana sa mergem sa ne machieze, cand Redactorul Sef, Diana Tofan a venit la noi si ne-a zis: “Buna, sunt Diana” ! Sincer , am fost un pic socata, eram ceva de genul: “ Da, stiu cine esti… :))))”, a fost prima mea experienta cu oamenii din acest domeniu si pot spune acum ca ii iubesc mai mult decat o faceam deja. Au inceput sa ne faca machiajul si parul. Totul era perfect, de la acele rujuri inchise la culoare la uscatoarele de par. Muzica era pornita. Era un sunet minunat, fete vorbind, muzica, o cutie de suc si o melodie. Mi-au facut parul si machiajul si eram mai mult decat fericita. Eram din ce in ce mai multe fete. Mi-am cunoscut celelalte “colege”, fete minunate, blog-uri dragute. Si inca odata am constat ca  lumea este mai mica decat credeam eu. In jurul orei 14:00 ne-au dat o gustare, apoi am stat si am vorbit, foarte mult. Am facut schimb de facebook, instagram, ideii despre moda, am vorbist despre toata lumea. In timp ce eram la canapeaua asta, la cealalta canapea, doua florarese faceau un panou de flori cu semnul GLAMOUR argintiu.

5:30 AM

We started to change in our evening outfits, to move around, to see who it’s going to come and to wait the ambassadors. We had done a rehearsal , everything was going to be perfect.

Ora 17:30

Am ineput sa ne schimbam in tinuta de seara, sa ne miscam de colo-colo, sa vedem cine vine si sa asteptam ambasadoarele. Am facut o repetite, totul urma sa fie exact cum trebuie.

7:00 AM

After our ambassador came, Sandra Bendre, we waited that all the guests to came. Meanwhile, I had the most fabulous chat with Alina Tanasa, one of my favorite bloggers from Romania and I was more than excited. The show started, the first team was on stage…. Our turn came and I was more than scared, I thought that I was going to fall or who else knows what could happen, but everything was fine. I didn’t won anything, but the air, the people, the photographs, everything was at the right place and at the right time.

Ora 19:00

Dupa ce ambasadoarea noastra, Sandra Bendre a venit, am asteptat ca toti invitatii sa soseasca. Intre timp, am avut cea mai fabuloasa conversatie cu Alina Tanasa, unul dintre blog-eri mei preferati din Romania si am fost mai mult decat incantata. Show-ul a inceput, prima echipa era pe scena… A venit randul nostru si eram mai mult decat speriata, am crezut ca o sa cad sau cine stie ce se putea intampla, dar totul a fost bine. Nu am castigat nimic, dar aerul, oamenii, fotografii, totul a fost la locul potrivit si la momentul potrivit.

I don’t know, here in front of my computer everyone seems to be so sophisticated ,so complicated, but actually, those people were just like me- the same big love for fashion.Thanks Sandra Bendre and GLAMOUR for this gorgeous opportunity and I don’t want this event  to be my first and my last one  with this amazing team. See you next time and I’m waiting for your comments bellow!

Chiar nu stiu, aici, in fata calculatorului toata lumea pare foarte sofisticata, foarte complicata, dar de fapt, acei oameni sunt exact ca si mine- aceeasi dragoste imensa pentru moda. Vreau sa ii multumesc Sandrei Bendre si GLAMOUR pentru oportunitatea acordata si nu vreau ca acesta sa fie primul si ultimul eveniment cu aceasta echipa minunata. Ne vedem data viitoare si va astept comentariile mai jos!

“The Bible”

It was just a newspaper in 1892, now I call it “The Bible”. My first and my last love it is this magazine, maybe I am a bit too exaggerate, but if you love magazines as I do, I can bet that you feel  the same thing. But I have a problem… Why why don’t have Vogue Romania? I’d love to have this magazine in our stores, but I thought a lot at this problem and I think that I’ve found the answer and I want to share it with you.

Era doar un ziar in 1892, acum eu il numesc “Biblia”. Prima si ultima mea dragoste este aceasta revista, poate sunt un pic cam exagerata, dar daca iubesti revistele cum o fac eu, pot sa pariez ca simti acelasi lucru. Dar am o problema… De ce nu exista Vogue Romania? Mi-ar placea tare mult sa avem revista in magazine, dar m-am gandit mult la problema asta si cred ca am gasit raspunsul si as vrea sa il impart cu voi.

First of all, Vogue lives from advertising for the high fashion brands. In Romania, we have just a few high fashion stores, like Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Louis Vuitton and there are a few more, but not enough. If you buy the magazine you will see that first 100 pages are just adverts and if you never heard about the magazine you will be disappointed when you will see this. But this is how they live and still the magazine is one of the best-sellers in this industry.

In primul rand, Vogue traieste din campaniile publicitare pentru casele mari de moda. In Romania sunt doar cateva magazine ale marilor brand-uri, ca si Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Louis Vuitton si mai sunt cateva, dar nu indeajuns. Daca cumperi revista, vei vedea ca in primele 100 de pagini vei gasi doar reclame si daca nu ai auzit niciodata de aceasta publicatie vei fi dezamagit sa observi acest lucru. Dar asta este modul in care ei traiesc si in continuare Vogue este una dintre cele mai bine vandute reviste in aceasta industrie a modei.

Let’s suppose that all high brands will come in Romania, but the magazine won’t live more than 2 editions. Why? Because in my opinion we are not ready for something big. We won’t give 10 or 12 E on a magazine, because we will think it’s too much. Yes, it is, but if this is what you like you will give those money. But there is one more thing, again, in Romania aren’t enough people to buy this magazine as Vogue can live here. If you go on the street and ask 100 people about Vogue, most of them  won’t even know how to pronounce her name correctly. 

Sa presupunem ca toate firmele mari vor veni in Romania, dar revista tot nu va trai mai mult de 2 editii. De ce? Deoarece, din punctul meu de vedere nu suntem pregatiti pentru ceva asa mare. Nu vom da 10 sau 12 Euro pe o revista, pentru ca vom crede ca este prea mult. Da , este, dar daca asta este ceea ce iti place, vei da acei bani. Dar mai este o problema, din nou, in Romania nu exista destula populatie care sa cumpere aceasta publicatie ca ea sa traiasca aici. Daca mergi pe strada si intrebi 100 de oameni daca au auzit de Vogue, majoritatea nici nu vor sti sa ii pronunte numele corect, nici nu mai vorbim sa o cumpere.

I am not an optimistic  person , so that’s why I believe that we will never be ready for something like this, but who knows? I want to believe that someday I will find Vogue Romania, but until then Vogue USA is next to me.

Nu sunt cea mai optimista persoana, de aceea cred ca niciodata nu vom fi pregatiti pentru asa ceva, dar cine stie? Vreau sa cred ca va veni ziua in care voi gasi Vogue Romania, dar pana atunci Vogue America va fi chiar langa mine.

Oh, my outfit. It doesn’t matter if we are in November and yes, outside are about 10-12 degrees, you can still wear sandals. Remember, sandals are not just for summer, they for all seasons, but just high high-heels!!! But don’t get cold if you want to wear them and don’t say I am out of my minds, because I am not the only one, just google and you will find a lot more girls with sandals during winter.  Behind the scene:  I live in a small city and it was very funny how old ladies were looking at me while I was doing the photo shooting in a public space because I wore sandals.

Oh, outfit-ul meu. Nu conteaza ca suntem in noiembrie si da, afara sunt 10-12 grade, inca poti purta sandale. Tine minte, sandalele nu sunt doar pentru vara, ele sunt pentru toate sezoanele, dar doar cu toc!!! Dar sa nu racesti daca vrei sa le porti si nu spune ca nu sunt intreaga la minte, pentru ca nu sunt singura, cauta pe google si vei afla ca sunt mult mai multe fete ca si mine care poarta sandale iarna. In spatele scenei: Traiesc intr-un oras mic si a fost foarte amuzant sa vad privirea doamnelor in varsta care m-au vazut pe strada in sandale in timpul sedintei foto.

Btw, don’t forget that orange is still the new black and you definitely need something orange in your closet ( I wish a pair of long boots in a dark orange or black, I hope Santa hears me).

Apropo, nu uita ca in continuare portocaliul este noul negru si ai nevoie obligatoriu de un articol portocaliu in dulapul tau (Imi doresc o pereche de cizme lungi portocaliu inchis sau negre, sper ca Mos Craciun ma aude).

I’m sorry because I didn’t post the last week, but I was busy, very busy actually, but I hope you can forgive me and share this post. See you next time my little carrots!

Imi pare rau ca nu am postat saptama trecuta, dar am fost ocupata, foarte ocupata, dar sper ca ma puteti ierta si veti da share la aceasta postare. Ne vedem data viitoare, micii mei morcovei!
