Buy the ticket, take the ride

Hi guys,

Just a quick post before my much anticipated vacation to Southern Spain. We're going to leave early tomorrow morning. Our bags are packed, our excitement is reaching high levels (travel tingle :P), we can't wait to explore those beautiful places, to get that feeling of freedom, to relax and to give ourselves up to all kinds of adventures!

Fingers crossed for a beautiful weather! I'll make sure to share the entire experience with you guys when I return and I'll try my best to update my Instagram as often as I can during the next 15 days (@dresssidestory).

Many virtual hugs!

Life lately

Hi guys,

Life has been quite hectic as of late- between getting ready for our upcoming holiday (only one week left) and planning a small redecoration of our apartment (which will happen during our vacation under the supervision of our parents- Yay for getting away from all the mess :P), we haven't even had time to breathe! All these things kept us in Bucharest for the weekend, despite it being a prolonged one (1st of May).

I have to admit I was a bit bummed about staying home for the weekend, but right now, looking out my window at this rainy day and my living room being filled with tons of stuff to pack, check-lists and all the madness, not going anywhere for the 1st of May seems like a pretty good idea :). Me and Alex are both working all through next week so we really needed these 3 days to get things in order!

All this being said, I'll leave you with the pictures below, starring a more edgy look than I usually wear. But hey, I try to step out of my comfort zone from time to time and yesterday was one of those days.

Many hugs!

Summer on my mind

Hi guys,

The weekend was gorgeous: sunny skies, warm temperatures, laid back activities with friends- everything I could wish for! On Saturday I went biking with my best friend and we had such a great time. The parks were full of people soaking in the sun, there were flowers and blossoms everywhere, it felt so alive. It really gave me the energy I needed to start a new week.

With only two more weeks left until my Spanish holiday, I'm already getting into the packing fever  :)). Yup, I'm one of those "early packers" :P, I like to make lists, organize my outfits without being in a hurry. I usually lay my suitcase open in the living room about two-three weeks before I leave, and gradually start putting in everything I want to bring with me on holiday. This year I have a new goal: to avoid taking more that I would actually get to wear... Wish me luck, it's a long shot :)!  Me and Alex are sharing the luggage, so we have to be really smart at packing our stuff. We'll see how that goes!

It seems that summer is making an early appearance (this past weekend stands as proof), and I could't be happier. As a travel enthusiast, I'm planning lots of fun escapades for the summer. Let the travel season begin :).

Have a wonderful week!

Love,

Mamalina

Pink blossom

Hey there, birdies!

First of all, thank you so much for your comments on the previous post, they meant a lot! Hope you're having a great weekend so far, despite the weather. I've been trying to get the most out of these 2 days of weekend by doing some household chores and planning a little kitchen redecoration. So I wasn't bothered by the small storm that hit the city.. Thankfully, I was fortunate enough to catch some sun in the morning before the rain started and I took these photos. I simply adore this season, it's such a spectacle of nature... I mean, just look at this magnolia tree! Isn't it just breathtaking?

On a different note, I have less than a month until my Spanish holiday and I'm getting super excited about it! I cannot wait to explore all those beautiful places, it's been my dream for so long to visit the south of Spain. We've rented a car, so I bet it's going to be quite an amazing adventure.

Another exciting thing is the new season of GOT that started last week. I read somewhere that things are going to happen that are different from the books, so I'm really curious to see how the story develops!

As you can see, I definitely have summer on my mind: holidays, music festivals, sea, movie nights with friends and all the things pretty!

Many hugs!

Love,

Mamalina

Changes

Hi guys,

I hope you all had a wonderful time during the holidays. The weather was amazing, perfect for some quality time spent with family and close ones! This year, my heart was incomplete, because I recently lost someone very dear to me! Thankfully, I have a beautiful family and we always guide each other through hard times, we know how to grieve but we also know how to celebrate life! I am so grateful for the special people around me, the wonderful memories that I cherish so much and the life we're living!

I wish you all an amazing week ahead! Spring is finally here, in every tree, every flower and every soul!

Lots of love!
