GAIN MORE FOLLOWERS?

Who do you want to be

Lately I have been thinking about my journey and where I am headed in life. Unsurprisingly, I was not able to find a clear answer to this question. But that is not what this post is about. To continue, I have been thinking about this field that I have adventured into, this whole social media / influencer marketing domain. I have tried to put myself into the shoes of the regular 100K+ followers influencer. Because that is the goal of this job, right? Gain as many followers as possible. Make money out of collaborations and become more and more famous. This is where it gets you.

Who are they?

I do – or at least I did – follow a lot of such girls. We all know the story: perfect selfies, expensive clothes, exotic vacations, and so on. These are the people who have the perfect lives, everybody wants to be like them. I also once wanted to be like them. Continue reading

FIRST DAY AT THE GYM – LIFE CHANGING

Yesterday was my first day at the gym ( from 2018 ).

I have posted an article two weeks ago about how exercising more is one of my 2018 resolutions. In the article I have tried to motivate all of you to workout and treat your body right. Because our body is one of your most precious belongings. Now, you might say “Well, Alexandra, it’s easy to tell us to go to the gym, when you don’t even do it.” And that is partially correct.

HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR TIME

EN:

Does it ever happen to you to just sit there and all of a sudden realize that you have no idea where the whole day has disappeared? Of course, you had an incredibly busy day, you did not waste a single second, you had lots of activities and goals to accomplish, yet you feel like the whole day has lasted for one second, you feel like you have just woken up at the end of the day, not knowing how you got there. This used to happen to me all the time until a while ago when I realized what the problem was: the fear of deadlines.

WHAT OTHERS THINK OF YOU IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS

EN:

Caring about other people’s opinions is the biggest obstacle to your happiness, and the thing that will constantly draw you back and keep you from progressing in life. And why is that?

Glad you asked.

So many people these days, especially teenagers and young adults, tend to suppress their desires and even their true personalities because they fear of what other people would think about their actions. “What will my mom say?”, “What will grandpa say?”, “How will my classmates feel about me doing that?”. All of these are frequent and seemingly harmless obstacles, small thoughts which make you question your most genuine wishes and sometimes determine you to give up on some things, ideas or even precious passions of yours, because you are worried that your definition of “right” does not correspond to theirs.

SOMETHING ABOUT FRIENDS

EN:

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn

It is extremely unfortunate that so many people with huge potential are wasting their time and capabilities because they allow the wrong “friends” to influence them. And it is not necessarily about the fact that your closest friends have a big impact on your behavior, which is also true, but it is more about the people you choose to spend your time with, choice which tells a lot about your personality, expectations and perception of life.  Continue reading

BEST OF 2016

EN:

2016 has been a significant year for my blog, first of all because I have started working harder on it, but most importantly, I have gathered the courage to make it public, after two years of anonymous existence. And the support that I have received from all of you has helped me a lot and has motivated me to keep doing what I love, which is fashion, photography and writing, everything that I am displaying right here, on CHANEL  NO. A.

Here are some of the most important moments from 2016:

RO:

Anul 2016 a fost un an foarte important pentru blogul meu, deoarece este anul în care mi-am făcut curajul să îl fac public, după doi ani în care nimeni nu a știut despre el, iar susținerea și aprecierile pe care le-am primit m-au motivat să continui să fac acest lucru, iar în 2017 plănuiesc să muncesc de 10 ori mai mult decât am făcut-o până acum.

Urmează câteva dintre cele mai importante momente din 2016: Continue reading

Thoughts first, outfit at the end of the post.

Lately I have been going through a pretty rough phase and I have lost my motivation almost completely, for a short period  of time. But now I have been working on regaining it, and I have started to think about this subject a lot, read articles and watch YouTube videos, and I have realized that too many people around me are only reacting to their lives, to the things that happen to them, instead of making things happen for them, because they have lost their motivation, and I find this extremely disappointing.

SOMETHING ABOUT DREAMS

Hi, everyone! This is my blog. It’s been here since 2014, but I haven’t had the courage to share it. Until now. That is why this post, about my experience at GLAMOUR Street Fashion Show, will be in Romanian, for all my Romanian friends and acquaintances, who will now – hopefully – become the majority of my audience. I will translate the main ideas of this article at the end of the post. Until there: I WON SECOND PLACE! Thank you all so much for your votes and for your support!

În ziua în care am văzut anunțul pentru cea de-a treia ediție GLAMOUR Street Fashion Show pe pagina de Facebook GLAMOUR Romania, am dat click imediat pe link-ul care m-a trimis la pagina cu detaliile despre concurs. Am aruncat o privire rapidă peste trendurile propuse pentru ținuta de concurs și imediat am știut ce voi alege: accente masculine (voi fi sinceră, nu am ales acest trend pentru că am simțit că mi se va potrivi cel mai bine sau pentru că așa mi-a dictat inspirația de moment, ci pentru că era cam singura categorie care se potrivea cu garderoba mea).

În ce a constat concursul, pe scurt: fiecare participantă a trebuit să își aleagă o ținută în conformitate cu unul dintre trendurile toamnă-iarnă prezentate pe site-ul revistei GLAMOUR, și să trimită poze cu ea purtând acea ținută uneia dintre cele 11 ambasadoare GLAMOUR, listate aici. Ambasadoarele au ales 10 fete pentru echipa fiecăreia, iar pozele noastre au fost publicate pe platforma de concurs. Publicul ne-a votat cu note de la 1 la 10 timp de câteva săptămâni, iar media acestor voturi a contat în proporție de 50% pentru nota finală, restul de 50% depinzând de un juriu de specialitate, pe baza ținutelor din seara evenimentului.

DETAILS

All of us have heard that “beauty is in the details”, and I have recently discovered how true that is. The only difference is that, in my case, happiness is in the details. If you don’t understand what I mean, keep reading. 🙂
There are really few things that can make us extremely happy, but only because we do not own them, does not mean that we can’t enjoy our life. What I am trying to say is that it’s the small actions and objects that can influence our mood or the way we see life.
A smile, a new dress, a beautiful landscape, a childhood photo… All of these are things that we sometimes forget to enjoy. In my opinion, the key to a better life is trying to see the good and the beauty in everything.
I am now going to give you some examples of small things that have the ability to slightly or significantly change my mood, and I am going to begin with the object that made me think about writing this article in the first place.
