Off to Barcelona

I am flying to Barcelona on 1st of April and it’s not a joke, even though it’s April Fools’ Day. I was initially supposed to go only  with my dear polish friend to break the routine. I later discovered that other 4 guys have chosen the same destination and period, so a crazy and cost-effective idea crossed in our mind: to rent a flat together. It was something spontaneous, considering the fact that I know 2 of the guys and my friend doesn’t know none. After sleepless nights of selecting the perfect basic flat, we agreed on the best one because it’s situated in the center, in Plaza de Catalunya and it’s big enough for us.

The conclusion was more up to the majority, the boys and I was shocked to find out that they liked this girlish apartment. Moreover, one of the boys discovered that the flat is right next to H&M and Zara, so it won’t be a problem if I don’t have something to wear, because I can go there even in pajamas.

Wish that I could say ‘ I have never been so well-prepared’, but I am lacking of energy because of the National Conference with AIESEC. At least, my outfit is ready with ‘Great Expections’ and my phone is full of applications (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.slashmobility.restalo&hl=en -for food,  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.guides.minube.barcelona&hl=en , https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tripadvisor.android.apps.cityguide.barcelona for visiting )which are meant to ease these 4 days in Barcelona.

I can’t wait to explore the city for the 2nd time!  I want to enjoy the Spanish sun, try to speak Spanish, take breathtaking and fancy photos, drink Sangria, eat Paella, visit a lot by foot, make new Spanish friends, check the nightlife, make shopping on Passeig de Gracia, where would Julia Roberts shop during Pretty Woman movie, etc

I have high expectations and I hope this trip will meet them!

What does it mean to be an AIESEC-er?

                     According to Wikipedia,  AIESEC is an international not-for-profit organization that provides students with leadership training and internship opportunities at for-profit and not for profit organizations. AIESEC, comes from the French acronym for Association internationale des étudiants en sciences économiques et commerciales (English: International Association of Students in Economic and Commercial Sciences). There are over 86,000 members come from a variety of college majors not necessarily from an area related to economic or commercial sciences. AIESEC is offering two products: GCDP ( Global Community Development Programme) and GIP (Global Internship Programme).

Potrivit Wikipedia, AIESEC (inițial din franceză Association internationale des étudiants en sciences économiques et commerciales, în prezent nume propriu), este o asociație studențească globală, non-guvernamentală, independentă, non-profit, condusă de studenți sau proaspăt absolvenți ale unei instituții de învățământ superioar. Sunt peste 86,000 de membrii, care fac parte din facultati cu profil economic. AIESEC pune la dispozitie 2 produse: voluntariat sau internship platit.

                   I joined AIESEC in September 2013, thanks to a friend, who I can easily call my mentor, considering how much she has been inspiring me lately. She was the president for our Local Committee and her future is now brightening with ECCO. Moreover, I was surrounded by AIESEC-ers: classmates and friends. AIESEC was slowly transforming into their only air existing in the atmosphere and I don’t know how, this air begged me to try it. At that time, I wanted to be ‘more than my degree’ and that was the suitable decision. This air had something magical that I had been looking for long time ago and that’s why I fell easily under AIESEC’s spell. 

1st step: Send an email with the filled application form and wait for a miracle to happen.

2nd step: Go with no stress and give your best to get the acceptance at the interview .

3rd step: Get to know the other members and work hard.

Reflect in style

Sunglasses are basically a warm-weather must, but also the perfect trick for a tired or no makeup face.  I am talking here about something more special such as mirrored sunglasses, because they seem to be a trend that won’t fall soon.

I wasn’t such a big fan of them, until I had realized what a big plus can add to your outfit. The secret is to wear them with a neutral outfit like black, white, grey or denim. Also, you can match them with your accessories.

I spotted some fashion bloggers or editorials on Pinterest for more inspiration,where you will find a large variety of sunglasses: oversized, wayfarer,aviator,retro, blue,green,silver,gold shades, etc.

ME!

As you can see, I am also wearing a pair of mirrored sunglasses, which are totally crappy because I bought them from a hypermarket, soon you cannot expect to protection against UV rays. The Aztec patterned blazer is another ‘cherry’ from my look. I bought it from Orsay, Germany because it was on sale and… I was in a mad mood.  Moreover, I thought that it will be a difficult job to mix it with something, so I made another stupid decision of  buying a navy T-shirt. Can’t you see? Stupid decisions may lead to success. I was going navy,more or less, so my new Zara navy coat was the last detail, which I was lacking of. I am really proud of this purchase, because I paid less than 40 euros and its normal price was 90 euros. I quickly fell in love with the straight, simple cut and the black shiny sleeve edges.All in all, the outfit quenched my expectations and it was the suitable choice for a sunny day with my friend in Kolding.

The floppy hat

It was nothing planned to wear a hat.I was about to leave, but I was still having second thoughts about my look, which was rather dull, than fabulous. So, I grabbed the hat which was the cherry on the cake. I bought it two years ago, but I didn’t have the guts or the right inspiration to show it to the world.

Moreover, it’s not an easy task to wear a hat in Denmark, especially when the wind is blowing with 30 km/h. There’s no doubt that a hat can add so much to your outfit, so that you will be rewarded with looks of admiration or confusion. My french attitude was brought back to life through that hat, so therefore I was 100% a mademoiselle.

Did you know? Coco Chanel got into fashion by selling  millinery products, not couture.  She was designing plumed hats for herself and her friends, but then a famous actress began wearing Chanel hats.The first millinery shop opened in 1910 and then the business blossomed, so she was able to expand beyond the hats. The first couture shop opened in Paris in 1913. Read more

Copenhagen Streetstyle

Danish style definition 

=throwing on lots of layers of clothing, wearing an unzipped coat (rather be cold, than look uncool), a statement necklace brightening your outfit,  having a chic messy bun and last but not least, wearing something black.

 Copenhagen stands for Europe’s fourth largest fashion city. Mostly all the Danish designers emphasizes the art of clothing,  which suits to the unfriendly weather, but together with  citizens biking lifestyle, which is always coming with a fashionable flavour. No one can dictate to Danish people what should they wear. A sparkling necklace would fit perfect with some sneakers and a leather bag. I admire a lot this combination between sporty vibe and urban sophistication.

Purchasing vintage clothing is another must-have in Denmark, because it makes outfits look more unique and personal.

That being said, I am also going Danish, because it’s comfy, dashing and really cool. For example, when I have been to Italy, it was quite hard to find nice clothes, because I was more into the dark, simple ones, not colourful or shiny.

The photos were taken in autumn 2013, so you might find some differences between now and then.

Next episode

I got off the bed to defeat the strong sunlight and start another exhilarating day with a brunch in a snug place or even in the park.

The girls were bossy with me,even in the morning, and they forced me to try a really healthy ‘breakfast’ : banana and spinach smoothie, which was the perfect treat.  I was aware that more food will satisfy my appetite in the upcoming hours, but that smoothie was enough for the moment. We were ready. All black, all danish style.  I was the tourist, who was stopping at every 2 minutes to take photos and admire the surroundings. They were supposed to be my tourist guides, but we were all acting alike: taking photos anytime, but at least we were all heading in the right way.

My caprice was to go to Strøget, which is the longest pedestrian shopping area in Europe. I wanted to be spellbound of how many well-dressed people are there, but not such a big luck because it was Sunday. My wallet was safe enough, thanks to the closed shops, but I couldn’t avoid to enter in Zara and guess what I’ve found. Sales, sales everywhere!

My friend was searching for the perfect little dress and I was unstoppable regarding what should I try on. I’ve finally agreed upon a pair of grey jeans,one cute black dress, one sweater, one navy jacket and other trousers, which looked horrible on me.  I decided to buy only two things: the dress and the coat, after dealing with my friends’ controversy.
