And its all about...


This spring is coming with loads and loads of good news. The spring collections are absolutely fabulous, colorful and beautiful. This post is all about bags. From big brands to smaller brands, from expensive bags to not-so-expensive bags, every bag looks fab and comes with a story.

If in the 1920s, Coco Chanel became tired of having to carry her handbags in her arms and decided to design a handbag that freed up her hands. Inspired by the straps found on soldiers’ bags she added thin straps and introduced the resulting design to the market in 1929.
Now this bags are a must have in every wardrobe.

Is it not ironic that his niece Miuccia Prada transformed PRADA into a luxury brand considering that the founder Mario Prada was a staunch believer that women should have ABSOLUTELY no role in business.

London street fashion during the Fashion Week was a source of inspiration.

Mikhailovsky Ballet London


Friday night I've been with my friend Roxana to the russian ballet here in London. It was absolutely amazing. I can only describe it like being peaceful and beautiful.

Russian ballet is very famous all over the world and there is a good reason behind it. It's a pleasure to see their performance and their love for what they are doing.

I loved it !



Vineri seara am fost cu prietena mea Roxana la un balet rusesc aici, in Londra.
A fost de-a dreptul minunat. Nu-l pot descrie decat ca fiind de o frumusete incredibil de linistitoare. Felul in care si-au expus sentimentele prin dans a fost superb. Este o adevarata placere sa urmaresti performanta si dragostea lor pentru ceea ce fac.

Bicester Village UK


Bicester Village.

A huge OUTLET. A perfect place for someone looking for good prices/bargains.

Was definitely a great trip. There are almost all the big brands starting with Dior, Prada, McQueen, Burberry… etc.

I was quite impressed with the fact that the collections were not very old. For example in Burberry I saw some shoes from the winter 2012-2013 collection and also discounts up to 90%, even if I personally couldn’t find much with that discount J. Having said that there was loads and loads available between 40-70% off.

Also a very nice surprise was Jamie Oliver’s food. I love this guy since the age of 17.
I felt like “ there is a God” considering how hungry I was when I found this place.

I ordered the beef sandwich and the carrots and potatoes soup. It was out of this world.
The soup had an incredible soft texture and a sweet taste .
As in the last couple of years I’ve got some very strong Indian habits, I would have added some chili flakes, just for a spicy touch.
The sandwich was great, it was quite difficult to finish it.
I loved that place.

I bought myself a pair of shoes (original price 595 GBP for 99 GBP) which I LLLOOOVVVEEE.

Enjoy the pictures. J


Bicester Village,

Un Outlet imens, un loc ideal pentru cine cauta preturi reduse la colectii relativ noi. A fost o plimbare plina de succes. Se gasesc majoritatea brandurile de la Prada la Dior, de la Cavalli la Burberry si lista poate continua.

Am fost super impresionata de colectii lor. Ma asteptam sa gasesc chestii vechi de 1000 de ani, cum se intampla de obicei prin Outleturi, insa nu. La Burberry de exemplu pe langa faptul ca aveau reduceri de 90%, aveau colectia 2012-2013 winter. Intradevar nu am reusit sa gasesc multe lucruri cu acel discount, insa 40%-70% era foarte frecvent.

O alta surpriza placuta a fost faptul ca am gasit restaurantul lui Jamie Oliver. Un tip fascinant de altfel, nu am ratat mai nimic din episoadele lui :) . Am comandat o supa de cartofi si morcovi dar si un sandwich cu carne de vita. A fost de a dreptul delicios. Supa avea un gust grozav si o textura foarte catifelata. Insa cum ultimii ani i-am petrecut mai mult in India decat in Europa, recunosc faptul ca am adoptat obiceiuri indiene. As fi adaugat in orice moment chili flakes in supa... doar asa pentru o atingere picanta. Sandwich-ul a fost imens si cam deficil de mancat :). 

Eu mi-am cumparat de la Anya Hindmarch o pereche de pantofi care imi plac tare mult, pretul lor initial era 595 GBP, insa am fost norocoasa si i-am cumparat la 99 GBP.

Enjoy the pictures. :)
