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)

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:
