A swedish experience

It's been a loong week, not over yet, with a even longer thursday. We, at ProFM, are working on the craziest concert ever. We've taken one of Romania's most beloved bands, Voltaj, and organized a live concert with them in a Metro (underground) train. The surprise element? We don't stay in the train station during this concert.. no, no, no. The train is on its usual course. It's moving, from Berceni, to Pipera, and back. It's a moving concert! Check THIS out! Everyone's invited, next thursday, May 10th. Meeting point @ Berceni Metro station, at 21.00h. Bucharest.

Back to our title post, as I was saying, this thursday has been a long working thursday. Thought it would end with a usual couch potato status, for me, but was surprised by a call from a friend who invited me to the Bastilia Librarium, to attend a late Swedish Poetry Seminary.

Although tired, and not a Swedish speaker... I went... and I don't regret it.
I've met wonderful people, heard a beautiful poetry reading in swedish, by the phenomenal interactive and great orator, Leif Olsson, watched the talented romanian actress Ruxandra Sireteanu impersonating the poetry and adored every word from Thomas Trantromer's masterpieces (for those who don't know, Transtrometer won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2011).

Anyway, to sum it up. I've had a lovely time, confirming my soft spot for Sweden, and its writers.
Here are some photos.
ps: Corina and Oana... You're on the blog. :D Shoot me! :p

All white, followed by all black

As you could find out from my last post, I've had a looong hard working saturday night. All white of course, since we had to cover the Sensation - Ocean Of White event, as official media partners.
Next day, feeling extremely tired and also feeling like i've seen enough white for a lifetime, i've decided to go for a all black outfit, when my friend Dana, a very talented, uprising photographer, called and said we should go out, have a brunch, a walk, a book... hell! have it all! :)
 Four days later, I'm watching the clouds from my office window, and all I can think about is how lovely was my all black sunday. :)
Enjoy some pics, taken ofc by my talented miss Dana (thanks love!)

Here you have it, the beautiful Sensation - Ocean Of White photos (Yes, I only have one picture of myself, taken at 3'o'clock in the morning, after the last interview we have taken).

A happy go fancy surprise!

Tonight, I was at home 'enjoying' a late work e-mail... Anyways...
At one point, while minding my own e-mail, an old colleague of mine sent me a beautiful picture of myself while Shakira's concert in Bucharest.
Didn't remembered when she took the picture but was very happy to know she remembered me and... furthermore... she posted this pic.
Anyway: I'm happy to see it and thought you would also appreciate it.

1st of March

I have to admit that this 1st of March is turning out to be a happy go fancy one.

Why? 3 reasons:

1. This is what i've found waiting for me at home last night after 24 hours of work:

2. Then, this morning, back at work, the office was happily decorated with this:

3. Last surprise was a very tasteful one. Sushi my love! :)

Happy spring everyone!

A balcony can make "La Historia"

Good morning everyone!
I know it's monday, and we are all supposed to be sad and nostalgic over the weekend, but i'm ok (at least this week :) ) and i'm not going to hide my good mood. No sir! I'm gonna try to make you get happy go fancy too!
That's why I decided to show you the little place I've fallen in love with this weekend.
A friend of mine opened a new location. It's one of those beautiful architectural places in the Centru Vechi (Old Center) from Bucharest, and it's called La Historia de Sud-America, across the street from The Comedy Theatre.
The location has been opened from 2009, but it's now entering a new step in its party evolution.
What makes La Historia de Sud-America different from other locations: The inside balcony! You will convince yourself if you just go there, but till then, I'm gonna show you the picture I took.
Honestly!  You'll love it! That balcony can make history!
Also, since it was a really great party, I have some nice pics with the other guests, Romanian artists, show producers, music producers... la creme de la creme: Alexandra Ungureanu, Oana Tache, Matteo, Cetin Rasit, Annes, Mayer, dj Almud.!

Kisses from the balcony :)

How will I stop the Alpacalipse!

Let’s set things straight from the beginning. This is a crazy story, totally inspired from reality… in some parts.
Words around say there’s a war coming. Nighttime is preparing for a big fight known as the Alpacalipse (they say the war consists in 1000000 alpacas attacking the world, and yes, the emblem is an angry alpaca! * see picture below)
Apparently 2 a.m. is totally pissed with midnight’s high place and wants to fight midnight and take its place.
You remember in Cinderella that things happened at midnight?
Well… I’m no Cinderella, but honestly now… Shit happens after 2.00 a.m.! Seriously! 2 a.m. is the hour we never speak about, it’s what we call: the doomed hour. (Do you feel pity yet for the poor hour?)
Ok. At midnight we have… Cinderella, with her pumpkin, her chalice, her doves and good fairies! We have the club cheaper entries! We have happy shots, we have “Happy New Year Hour” aaaand it’s my birthday hour!
That’s why 2 a.m. is pissed off. No one ever says anything about 2 a.m. No one ever sets things around that hour (have you ever heard someone saying “Yeah! I’ll meet you there at 2 a.m.”?). They’ve made stories about midnight. Never about 2 a.m.. They’ve written odes to midnight. No ode for 2 a.m..
Some are even scared to take decisions after 2 a.m. because there’s a legend saying that all that’s decided after this particular hour it’s doomed!
You can see by now why 2 a.m. is so angry, but in the end… Let me try to solve this conflict and save us all from the horrible Alpacalipse, by having a heart to heart conversation with 2 a.m..
Dear 2 a.m. Stop wanting to be the midnight when you actually do the most amazing thing for million of clubbers all over the world. You are that spectacular hour when the guest dj starts playing at the club. People love you for that. There are people who sleep till 2 a.m. especially for that moment, people who have an incredible date with you, 2 a.m., for that soul moment. You have already beaten midnight, because you know what? Those people, who hurry up to pay their midnight ticket price, do it only to be there at that meeting with you!
Yeah! I’m good! I know! ;)
And here’s our angry alpaca! J
Hi! Hi! Hi!
And as a bonus, this lovely knitted sweater made from alpaca wool! (I don't know that for sure, but that's why we have imagination for. let's pretend it's from alpaca wool) :)

The little girl that wouldn’t

This is the story of a “little” girl that wouldn’t go to the mountains (ok, I admit it. I’m not that little anymore, but bear with my fantasy). Truth be told, she just hates cold.
Here it goes: after a lot of talking at the office, her team decided that is mandatory that they all take this one-day trip to some locations in the mountains that they were interested in. You know the say: location, location, location!
Although fighting to postpone the trip (indefinitely) in the end the little girl had to accept the fact that this trip was a must. She cried her eyes out a night before (ok, she didn’t cried. I’m over dramatic here, but I really hate cold) and woke up early in the morning to join her colleagues on this ride.
After two hours of very interesting conversations (I hope my boss is reading this right now) the team arrived in Sinaia, where guess what: not only was there cold, but also it started snowing, big, fat, snowflakes!
Ok, said the little girl, let’s check this location and get the “darn” out of here.
And this is the part where the plot is 100% changing.
They “climbed” at 1.400 m on the mountain and there they found a magical place, packed with happy people and jolly pets.
Although freezing to death, the little girl adored playing with the cute dogs and stopped for one second form checking and replying her e-mail to take a deep fresh air breath and enjoy the amazing view. She was literally swept off her feet.
Step two, check out Predeal: So, they all jumped in the car and went to Predeal to see the Clabucet slope.
The place was magical. Thousand of people on skies and boards waiting in line to go up the mountain, a wonderful terrace and cute bar serving hot wine, all happening in nature’s own surrealistic snow globe.
The little girl totally forgot about being cold, and just enjoyed the sublime feeling of… happy go fancy.
Now she’s back home, in Bucharest, writing you this story, and she just can’t wait for the next time she’ll relive that white, pure happiness. 
Beautiful view

 Beautiful view part 2 :)

 Up, up at 1.400 m @ Sinaia. It was windy!

Getting warm in Predeal

 Funny little guys (the dogs I mean)
Really cold in Predeal

Pretty girls with pretty nails

I loooove to try on all kind of colors on my nails! Yet another thing that makes me happy and I definitely fancy a lot.

Holidays gave me the possibility (and time) to experiment a lot with nail polish. And so I did.

Here are some of the nail colors and patterns that I’ve tried on these past days:
