This week I got the chance to attend the “Gala Moda UVT” which is a gala for the fashion college and master graduates collections 2017. Sixteen students had the opportunity to present their vision and style through their collections at this event.
From clean-cut lines, urban buildings and nature inspiration, vibrant colors or toned down pastels and grays, we could see it all.
A draw-back from my perspective was the 45 minutes delayed starter of the show. For the future, let’s keep it at the standard “fashionably late” of 15 minutes. 😉

Since we are talking here about thoughts and opinions I figured why not tackle one of my favorite hobbies, travel…trips and tips 🙂
No, I won’t get into too much details because I just want to give you a taste, enough to make you want to go there.
So, follow me around Milan, the city of fashion, art and good food (among others). Even before we landed to Bergamo we got ourselves the bus tickets online (try Terravision as they have pretty good prices – 9€ two way trip), which drove us around 1h (depends on the traffic) to the Milano Centrale.
Even the Central Railway Station, Milano Centrale, is more than a Station. With shops, restaurants, access to metro and beautiful glass arched roof, this Station is a work of art in which we got a chance to take a sprint through in order not to lose our bus on our way back. No worries, we made it 🙂
We also hit the Piazza del Duomo to be amazed by the mind-blowing architecture of the third largest church in Christendom (outdone only by St Peter’s in Rome and Seville’s cathedral), Duomo Cathedral.
Standing proudly, the over 600 years old cathedral is indeed quite a sight to see.

Tu ce film vrei să vezi săptămâna asta?
Dacă tot vine weekend-ul şi te gândeşti să mergi la un film îţi recomand Piraţii din Caraibe: Răzbunarea lui Salazar (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales). Aş spune să îl vezi chiar în format IMAX deoarece CGI-ul folosit în acest film este din plin şi merită vizionat la potenţialul maxim.
Iniţial, nu am avut aşteptări mari, în special după ultimul film, care a fost criticat dur. Dar am fost plăcut surprinsă să văd o redresare a francizei (idee începută de la un parc tematic) regizata de Joachim Ronning şi Espen Sandberg.
Deşi îi reîntâlnim pe unii dintre veteranii (sau favoriţii) noştri ca Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) sau chiar Hector Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) povestea aduce noi protagonişti ca Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites) şi Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario) care sunt în căutarea legendarului Trident al lui Poisedon, un artefact puternic, ce conferă posesorului său control asupra blestemelor apelor.

Get lost in the words of a book and enjoy a new adventure with every chapter.
Can you see the new dream that unfolds behind your eyes?
Capture moments and create art, bring your vision to life.
Live in the magical land of books, learning, growing, making new friends or losing some of them.
Her superpower is disappearing into books and her complex mind is often hard to understand.
She is dreaming with her eyes open, wishes to travel the world and has sparkles in her eyes when she talks about the things that inspires her. Continue reading “April in Bookland”
For a minute there I thought Spring was going to come.
Sunny days, warm weather, a few flowers.
Now we are back to rainy days and muddy shoes.
But I don’t mind. I think it’s raining because March knows you love rain and this is her present for you.
You are using the seasons as inspiration and words are like a rug for your feet.
You write poems in your head at a stop light and your head is filled with noises as you create art with your life.
Stars at your fingertips and constellations in your hair.
Music notes down your spine and glitter in your shoes.
The Universe is expanding through the books as you get lost in each word you read. Continue reading “March Celebration”
Unplug from the reality. Sometimes you need a time out.
Get lost in this weird Autumn, where it rains but remains fascinating somehow;
If you want to grow, you have to do something that scares you;
Even if it is small or big, a step in the right direction counts.
If it doesn’t open, it is not your door.
Keep the stars at your fingertips and don’t tell anyone that you are hiding leaves in your hair and sparkles in your eyes.
God will never tell you to do something and not equip you to do it. Continue reading “Random.”
I am happy that I live in a world where there are books. And that I have friends that are book lovers and like to share snippets from the pages they are reading.
A good friend of mine decided to share with me a picture with a fragment from a book which went something like this: “Your problem is that you keep expecting people not to be themselves. I mean, I could hate you for being massively unpunctual – but I don’t, because you’re you.”
When approaching the subject of one’s personality there are many things to keep in mind, because we are usually formed and influenced by the context in which we live in or we grew up in.
And yes, there are values and virtues that we develop. Habits that we can break and replace with better ones that lead to our growth, there are also some specific traits that makes us…well, us. Continue reading “Overthinking.”
