FREYWILLE, 10 years in Romania


EN: Just by looking at FREYWILLE‘s creations, you understand that they are an artistic expression through jewelry. After 10 years since the first store opened in Romania, REYWILLE marked this moment with a mesmerizing show, composed with art elements and the finest jewelry, on stage of Le Chateau.

The event was organized by PR Avenue and I am glad that I had the chance to attend this event ๐Ÿ˜‰

RO: Doar uitandu-te la creatiile FREYWILLE, intelegi ca sunt o exprimare artistica prin bijuterii. Dupa 10 ani de la deschiderea primului magazin in Romania, FREYWILLE a marcat acest moment printr-un spectacol hipnotizant, sustinut cu elemente de arta si cele mai fine bijuterii, pe scena de la Le Chateau.

Evenimentul a fost organizat de PR Avenue, iar eu ma bucur ca am avut ocazia sa particip la acest eveniment ๐Ÿ˜‰

EN: Because I want you to understand more about the FREYWILLE philosophy and the anniversary of the brand, I leave below some information from the press release:

Art distracts us from our daily routine. Living with art allows us to live in higher dimensional spaceย and this is a major quality of life, pointed out Friedrich Wille, CEO FREYWILLE, present at the anniversary event.

In retrospect,ย since 1951, FREYWILLE has created over time real exhibitions with the help of e-mail jewelry, each one being a tribute to renowned painters. The latest demonstration of integrating into jewelry an artistic vision is represented by the latest collection, a new long-awaited tribute, which was worked on for 2 years – the collection HOMMAGE ร€ PAUL GAUGUIN – revealed to the guests present at the anniversary event. As an imaginary journey with three key destinations from Gauguin’s luxuriant universe, FREYWILLE’s artistic department has rendered in bright colors and golden dust the tropical paradise of Tahiti, Polynesia and Bora Bora, in a collection that impresses with color and attention to detail.

RO: Pentru ca vreau sa intelegeti mai mult din filosofia FREYWILLE, cat si despre aniversarea brandului, va las mai jos cateva informatii din comunicatul de presa:

Arta ne distrage atentia de la viata cotidiana. A trai cu arta ne permite sa traim in sfere superioare si este o calitate majora a vietii, a subliniat Friedrich Wille, CEO FREYWILLE, prezent la evenimentul aniversar.

In retrospectiva, inca din 1951, FREYWILLE a creat adevarate expozitii cu ajutorul bijuteriilor cu email, fiecare fiind un omagiu adus unor pictori renumiti. Cea mai noua demonstratie de transpunere in bijuterii a viziunii artistice este reprezentata de cea mai recenta colectie, un nou omagiu mult asteptat, la care s-a lucrat timp de 2 ani โ€“ colectia HOMMAGE ร€ PAUL GAUGUIN โ€“ dezvaluita participantilor la evenimentul aniversar. Ca o calatorie imaginara cu trei destinatii-cheie din universul luxuriant al lui Gauguin, departamentul artistic FREYWILLE a redat in culori aprinse si pulbere de aur paradisul tropical din Tahiti, Polinezia si Bora Bora, intr-o colectie care impresioneaza prin cromatica si atentie la detalii.

EN: As art transcends the imagination and turns into jewelry, at the anniversary event, the guests witnessed a presentation in which a series of famous paintings by artists such as Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, Gustav Klimt, F. Hundertwasser, Alphonse Mucha and Paul Gauguin came to life. The delicate jewels conveyed emotions and artistic inspiration, being highlighted in the fashion presentation signed by Alexandra Calafeteanu, the designer also celebrating 10 years of artistic creation – a special moment, a tribute to beauty and femininity in all its forms of expression.

RO: Cum arta transcede imaginatia si se transforma in bijuterii, invitatii au fost martori la o prezentare in care picturi celebre ale unor artisti precum Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, Gustav Klimt, F. Hundertwasser, Alphonse Mucha si Paul Gauguin au prins viata. Delicatele bijuterii au transmis emotii si inspiratie artistica, fiind puse in valoare in cadrul prezentarii de moda cu tinute semnate de Alexandra Calafeteanu, designerul aniversand 10 ani de creatie artistica โ€“ un moment frumos, un omagiu adus frumosului si feminitatii in toate formele sale de exprimare.

10 Closet essentials – Every petite woman should own


EN: If we were to start a discussion about fashion, trends and personal style we could have an endless debate. There are tons of reasons to agree or disagree on what to wear, both objective (like size, shape) and subjective (like how we see ourselves in the mirror and what we see in magazines and/or online), but there are several fashion items that every petite woman should own. They are evergreens of the wardrobe ๐Ÿ˜‰

The list below is just a starting point, you can choose your preferred brands:

RO: Orice discutie despre fashion, trenduri si stil personal poate duce la dezbateri fara sfarsit. Sunt multe motive pentru care poti adapta sau respinge un trend, atat obiective (forma si marimea siluetei), cat si subiective (perceptia asupra reflexiei din oglinda sau ceea ce vezi in reviste, in online), dar sunt cateva piese vestimentare pe care fiecare femeie mignona ar trebui sa le aiba in dulap. Sunt evergreenuri ale garderobei!

Lista de mai jos este un punct de pornire, fiecare dinre voi poate opta pentru marcile preferate:

  1. Nude stiletto suede high heels – here
  2. Black pencil dress – here
  3. Leather jacket – here

Kisses and hugs, my petites!

Green vibes: Blazer dress or what to wear at a wedding


RO: Cand privesti lucrurile din alt unghi, chiar si in fashion, gasesti modalitati noi de a purta hainele sau ajungi chiar sa le oferi un alt rost decat cel trecut pe eticheta. Iata un exemplu, Zara prezinta aceasta haina verde ca o vesta, pentru mine este o rochie sacou.

EN: When you think outside the box, even in fashion, you can discover new ways to wear certain items or you can give different meaning to whats written on a label. Here is one example, Zara is presenting this green thing as a vest, but for me it’s a blazer dress.

RO: In plin sezon de nunti, am cumparat rochia cu gandul la evenimentul la care urma sa particip la finalul lunii. Intodeauna caut o tinuta pe care o pot folosi si la alte ocazii. In plus, din experienta mea o rochie pentru o nunta e bine sa nu fie foarte fixa, asa te bucuri de meniu, fara sa te gandesti la burtica ๐Ÿ˜›

EN: As wedding seasons is here, I bought the dress thinking of the event that I was going to participate at the end of the month. I always look for something that I can wear to other occasions. Moreover, from my experience a wedding dress should not be tight, so you can enjoy the food without thinking of your belly.

RO: Pentru ca rochita are un verde minunat si puternic, accesoriile le-am ales de-o culoare neutra, am ales un roz pal. Am gasit sandalele la Mercari, apoi am cautat o geanta mica, in aceeasi cromatica, pe FashionDays.com.

EN: Because of the strong green of the blazer dress, accessories needed to be neutral, I thought of light pink. Luckily, I found these simple, pretty sandals in Mercari, so I looked for a a small handbag with similar color. on FashionDays.ro.ย

Swimsuit Season: Monochrome summer in black and green


RO: Haideti la mare! Vara a sosit, asa ca un post scurt despre costume de baie mi se pare potrivit. O sa incep cu o intrebare, cate costume de baie aveti in garderoba?

Eu am 8, pentru o persoana care nu stie sa inoate si NU are stare sa leneveasca la soare pentru a se bronza, sunt multe…. Ce credeti?

EN: Let’s go to the sea side! Summer is here, so a short blog post about swimsuits is appropriate. I will start with a question, how many swimsuits do you have?

I have 8, for a person that does not know how to swim and does NOT have patience to linger in the sun just to get tan, are too much. What do you think?

RO: O sa va scriu despre cele mai noi, le-am comandat online si ar ajuta o parere despre ele. Cred ca multe dintre voi sunteti familiare cu Zaful.com (sigur v-au aparut reclame pe vreun canal de social media).

Dupa ce am citit cateva reviewuri online, am decis sa comand 3 seturi (doua negre, am vrut bikinul de la un set si topul de la celalalt):

EN: I will write about the newest of them, because I bought them online and I am sure that a review will help. I think many of you are familiar with Zaful.com (for sure you must have seen an ad on a social media channel).

After searching reviews online, I decided to order 3 sets (two 2 black because I wanted the bikini from one model and the top from the another):

  1. One Shoulder Bikini Set – Black
  2. Padded Scrunch Butt Bikini Set – Black
  3. Ribbed Scrunch Butt Wrap Bikini Set – Camouflage Green

RO: PRO: calitatea materialelor; modul de productie; pretul – aprox. 20 dolari/set; descrierea produselor de pe website este corecta; marimile se potrivesc (S este ideal pentru o tinuta petite) – a sa primit exact produsele pe care le vedeti in poze.

CONTRA: doar unul singur, timpul de livrare este destul de lung, cand am comandat eu au fost expediate de peste ocean; acum obsev ca au o versiune a websiteului si pentru Europa (dar, cred in continuare ca cel mai probabil comanda va ajunge dupa vara).

O sa postez poze cu celelalte 2 costume pe Instagram, pe parcursul verii ๐Ÿ™‚

EN: PROS: quality of the materials; manufacturing; price – aprox. 20 dollars/set; the description of the products is accurate; sizes are ok (S is ideal for a petite figure) – you will get exactly what you see in the pictures.

CONS: just one, delivery time is long, unfortunately when I ordered the delivery was from across the ocean; now I see they have a version of the website for Europe (but I still think that you will probably get your order after summer).

I will post on Instagram pictures with the other two bathing suits, during the summer.

Kisses darlings and be careful how much you lay in the Sun! ๐Ÿ˜€
