After doing the obligatory Spring clean-up, it dawned on me that my closet was overflowing of clothes that I had totally forgotten about. I found items from years ago that I kept for “special occasions” (that never came, of course!) and others that made my heart skipped a beat. As if I were in a store, […]

For some time now, I’ve wanted to share some of the beautiful treasures I found in Transylvania this past winter. Contrary to popular belief, Romania and especially Transylvania is more than Castle Dracula and its mythical character. It’s a place of old traditions, wealth and beautiful craftsmanship that speak more than you’d think about Romanians’ inclination […]

Transitional clothes are a must in Spring. You need items that are not too thick and not to thin to go with warm days and chilly evenings. Same goes for accessories. The creators of Duoket got the right idea and invented a water repellant sport jacket that turns into a bag in an instant. This […]

All my adolescence, I dreamt of leaving home, of creating a new life somewhere, of being me. Untamed and unaltered by adults. I thought those family ties were holding me back from fulfilling God-knows-what glorious destiny lied ahead. Roots were something to avoid, something reserved for the unavoidable adulthood. But as time passes by, you […]

The moment you’ve formed an opinion, you’ve won a hater. No questions asked. We’re living in an age where tolerance, especially online, does not exist. I’ve seen dozens of women and men insulting and shouting online (I think we all know what CAPS and exclamation points mean!) from a presumed sense of (gender) equality. They say […]

Do you know the feeling of a dry, parched face with the uneasy sensation that every pore is clogged no matter what you do? That’s how I feel most days. Actually, that’s how I felt. Granted, I’m not a skincare freak. Until a year ago, I used only a moisturizer and a make-up remover at […]

Few of you know that Alexander Wang is actually a very down-to-earth, humble person who refuses to be idolized or to keep journalists at bay. Power. Comfort. Control. Energy. Every time I think about him and his collections, these four words pop to mind. But if that doesn’t help you decipher him at all, then imagine […]

They seem to serve one purpose in life. Winter coats, that is. To keep you warm, safe, to make sure you don’t end up like a giant icycle at work. Yet we seldom think of all that in the stores. We don’t check out the labels to see how much wool was used to make […]
