Now that the Spring is in the air...

Hi guys,

Saturday truly felt like a Spring day. Not only was it sunny, but it was warm and fresh! It was a clear sign that the season of rebirth is not far away! Beside warmer temperatures, fresh air and flowers in bloom, Spring also means the celebration of the most important people in my life: my husband, both my parents, and of course, myself! We'll have a lot of special days during the next couple of months, and I'm super excited and grateful that my family and friends are healthy. They continuously brighten my days!

On Saturday one of my best friends turned 30 and threw this super fun pink themed party and we had a blast (you might have seen pictures on Instagram), tomorrow is Alex's birthday and also Dragobete... So yeah, lots of celebrations! It's like the holiday season for me :)!

As far as my outfit is concerned, I have to say that it's one of my favorite combinations ever! I love how the two prints mix, I even bought pajamas with these prints! I'm obsessed! I thought I'd rock my wedding shoes with a more casual look, so here they are, talking a walk in the park, all dressed down :).

Hope you guys like it! Have a wonderful week!

Love,

Spring wishlist

Hi guys,

The weather is finally starting to get warmer so it's time to get my spring wardrobe updated :). My birthday is coming soon, so shopping is very much allowed! And every shopping session starts with a well documented wishlist. Florals, pastels.... I can't wait to wear them all!

Have a wonderful, sunny weekend!

Hugs!

My kind of love

Hi guys,

It's been a while since my last post and I could't wait to get back on the blogosphere! Sadly, my beloved photographer-husband has been a bit sick during the last couple of weeks, so I could't drag him with me to photo shoots (just an ear infection, nothing too serious, but still...). Now he's feeling better, so we took advantage of the sun showing its face on Saturday to capture our own celebration of love (or should I say my celebration of love :P)

We don't actually celebrate Valentine's Day, not because we have something against it, but because Alex is born on the 24th of February, on Dragobete, so we always celebrate on that day. But with all the craziness surrounding V-Day, it was impossible not to get a little caught up in the moment :). So here I am, wearing a fancy tulle skirt (that I absolutely adore), almost having LOVE written all over me... heart balloons and all :).

Hope you guys will enjoy the pictures and the outfit. I for one really love it!

Have a great week and don't forget to celebrate love everyday!

Hugs,

Mamalina

Just ROLL with it :)

Hi guys,

This weekend was so fun, in spite of the cold weather. On Saturday, we went to our friends' house to make sushi and play some board games. Delicious homemade sushi, fun activities and "vintage" music from the 90s- this pretty much sums up my Saturday evening. Me and my friends, we like to get together and organize these cooking sessions from time to time. And of all the things that we have done, I'll have to say that sushi definitely involves the most teamwork. Everybody has to get down and get dirty if we want to finish and enjoy it! But in the end, it's all so good, we wanna cry(and we actually do, because of the wassabi sauce :P).

For this evening with friends, I opted for a very casual and comfortable outfit: jeans and an over-sized sweater. But since wearing jeans is a rare thing for me, I simply had to immortalize the look. I'm becoming more and more attracted to jeans, I like that I can get get creative with them- which seemed impossible to me. So I guess you'll be seeing more of me in jeans from now on. The outfit was simple, so I thought of giving it a more edgy touch with the boots and the layered necklace. I was very pleased with the result!

On a different note, it's February already! Spring is just around the corner and I couldn't be more excited. I can notice the days getting longer, which for me is a major mood lifter! We'll have to wait some more for warmer temperatures, but anyway... things are going in the right direction :)!

Hugs! Have a wonderful week!

Wearing someone else's clothes

Hi guys,

Nope, it is not an illusion! I am actually wearing jeans :). This doesn't happen very often, but lately, with this rainy weather, jeans have become part of my daily uniform! The idea of this composition started with the shirt! I've had my eyes on this shirt for a while... in Alex's dressing! Yup, this is his shirt! I simply adore the print and fabric, I never seem to find such quality in women shirts (bummer)... The colors were beautiful also, and a perfect fir for my coat and hat. Talking about the coat: this is an old Zara coat, it had this military style that you can still notice if you look at the pockets and shoulders. And since I didn't quite enjoy that excessive military appearance, I decided to give it a little makeover. I replaced the buttons (it actually had 2 sets of big, gold buttons on each side, and I decided to stick with (and replace) only one of those sets. I'm happy with the result, as now I can go back to wear it more often. It was a pity, I really loved its color and shape, I had to do something to bring it back into my wardrobe. The bag was my Christmas present from Alex (the guy's got taste, what can I say) and the boots are a consequence of my last sales shopping spree :).

Enough about my little projects and guilty pleasures... I wish you guys a beautiful week ahead and sunny days. I've kinda had enough of this gloomy weather! It makes me want to hit the mall to cure my depression, and this is not acceptable because I'm actually trying to adopt this "no buy" challenge, to put money aside for my summer holiday... So please, let there be sun :)!

Many hugs!
