Quicky: Vanity Close-up

EN:

I confidently placed both my hands on my waste, took a deep breath with my head up high and let me eyes rest on the tidy room in front of me.

Focusing my sight back and forth from the details to the big picture, I thought to myself, that all the cleaning up and reorganizing was worth it. Proud and satisfied, I noticed that even the air smelled like mango.

I smiled to all the shiny things that reflected the window light so playfully and took out my camera.

Today, I'll take you on a tour on my vanity table.

RO:

Mi-am pus mainile in sold, am respirat adanc cu barbia sus si mi-am odihinit privirea in fata mea.

Focalizand cand pe detalii, cand pe imaginea de ansamblu, bucurandu-ma de priveliste, am conclus ca ordinea generala pe care am facut-o in casa zilele acestea a dat roade. Pana si aerul mirosea a mango.

Am zambit catre obiectele reflectand atat de jucaus lumina de afara si am scos aparatul.

Azi vreau sa te aduc cu mine intr-un colt din dormitorul meu, caruia tocmai i-am dat un make-over.

To get to know someone better, I think it's really important to see how their world looks like. To see how they behave in relationship to their space and their things. What they decide to keep or throw away, what colors they're surrounded with and if they live in a certain amount of chaos, or if they're really tidy.

These are the type of questions I'd ask myself if I were to start a new relationship with a man.

It ain't the case though. I know exactly what Andrei is like. I've seen him a million times in his calculated and neat universe. I know that he likes to live in minimalism and that he's ruthless when it comes to material things cluttering up.

I'm not too much like him though. I'm a bit more attached to what I own. I know it isn't healthy, but I have a way of associating my belongings to my feelings and my memories.

My bedroom is my sanctuary of happiness. The altar is my travel shelf in the right, and to my left I have my vanity tables.. oh, I have two.

That's because I'm truly passionate about make-up, and because I love the idea of a woman having a collection of perfumes with different moods. I also own a lot of journals and notebooks that I need to store somewhere in sight. Then again, I keep almost anything that brings a smile to my face, things like a dusty, dry rose or a torn concert ticket from two or three years ago.

Ca sa ajungi sa cunosti pe cineva mai bine, mi se pare foarte important sa intelegi cum arata lumea lui. Cum se comporta cu obiectele pe care le are, ce alege sa pastreze si ce sa lase uitarii. Ce cromatica prefera, daca ii place haosul sau lucrurile asezate la linie.

Sunt genul de intrebari pe care mi le-as pune daca as intra intr-o relatie noua cu un barbat.

Nu e cazul insa, stiu deja exact care ii sunt obiceiurile si maniile lui Andrei. Cat de calculat si curat ii place sa lucreze, cum traieste in minimalism si cat e de taios cu impovararea inutila cu lucurile materiale.

Eu insa sunt putin mai atasata de posesii. E adevarat ca nu e neaparat sanatos, si ca esti cu atat mai liber cu cat detii mai putin, dar in ce ma priveste, imi place sa asociez povesti si amintiri cu obiectele din jurul meu.

Incaperea in care dorm e sanctuarul meu de fericire. Cu altarul de calatorit in dreapta, si vanity table-urile in stanga.. da, am doua.

Asta pentru ca sunt cu adevarat pasionata de machiaj, ca imi place ideea ca o femeie sa aiba o colectie de parfumuri cu mood-uri diferite, ca am o multime de jurnale si carnetele carora trebuie sa le gasesc locul. Ca pastrez tot ce-mi aduce un zambet pe buze, de la un trandafir uscat pana la un bilet rupt, de la un concert de acum doi-trei ani.

To bring you even closer, I let all my little things stand in their natural positions.

The picture in the frame was a gift from Vlad. He printed it for his BA presentation. It was on display a few days ago at Expo Transilvania. After the whole thing was over, he handed me it together with many other of the images we took together. I'm going to gift them further to the men in my life, Andrei and my dad.

RO:

Ca sa te aduc si mai aproape, am incercat sa cuprind obiectele in pozitile lor naturale.

Poza nu am developat-o eu, ci Vlad, pentru ca a folosit-o la lucrarea lui de Licenta. A fost afisata alaturi de alte fotografii de-ale noastre, la Expo Transilvania acum cateva zile. Intre timp mi-a dat toate tablourile mie, si urmeaza sa cadorisesc o parte din ele barbatilor din viata mea. Andrei si tata.

And because I recently got a teeth whitening kit from albirea-dintilor.com and 'cause I'm about to review them soon enough, I thought I'd just show them to you right now.

They really got under my skin and straight into my routine. I put the stripes on whenever I need a boost. I take them with me wherever I go too, in my Beauty Case ( remember I told you about the case? Here. )

All the fuss is about the Crest White Stripes that you only have to put on for about half an hour. You can do it anywhere, like in your car while driving, when you're reading a book in the park or watching your fav TV series. You don't even feel them.

Even quicker and more practical, is that little brush you can see in the picture above, called Dazzling White. You can use it to whiten whatever you need more precisely.

When I'm going on a date, I always make sure my lipstick is perfectly mat and my teeth are perfectly pearly. Hah, that's my obsession.

But I'll review them in more words soon enough, but till then, I'll jut give you a few samples of the results.

Pretty cool, huh? And when you come to think that I only used 5 stripes out of 20, it's even cooler.

I think I'm going to stop using them for now after the 6th or 7th time. They're so white already! I'll give Andrei a few more, 'cause I already made sure he has an actors smile with these babies, and I'll keep the rest of them for an extra freshening up along this year.

 

Iar pentru ca am primit un set de produse de inalbit dintii de la albirea-dintilor.com si pentru ca urmeaza sa le fac un review, am zis ca nu ar strica sa vi-le arat si voua.

Chiar mi-au intrat in rutina si fac tratamentele ori cand simt ca am nevoie de un boost. Le port cu mine oriunde ma duc, in Beauty Case-ul meu ( despre care ti-am mai povestit aici ).

E vorba de benzile transparente de la Crest White Stripes pe care trebuie sa le ti doar 30 de minute pe dinti, si o poti face oriunde. Daca e la un drum cu masina, cand citesti o carte in parc sau cand te uiti la un serial. Nici nu simti ca sunt acolo.

Mai rapid si mai practic, e pensula din imaginea de mai sus, Dazzling White, care corecteaza tintit exact ceea ce iti doresti sa inalbesti.

Cand ma duc la un date, am grija sa-mi fie rujul perfect mat si dintii perfect perlati, asta e obsesia mea.

Am sa-ti povestesc mai multe si despre ele cat de curand, dar pana atunci te las sa vezi niste rezultate.

Destul de misto, asa-i? Si cand te gandesti ca nu am folosit decat 5 benzi, dintr-o cutie de 20, suna si mai bine.

Am sa ma opresc la maxim 6-7 folosiri pentru acum, ii mai dau si lui Andrei cateva, ca si lui i-am facut un zambet de actor cu ele, si restul le patrez pentru decursul anului, cand voi simti nevoia sa ii mai improspatez o data.

Did you try them? How do you feel about them?

If you've had an experience you'd like to share, or any other questions regarding them or the pictures above, just let me know in the comment section.

Kisses.

Voi le-ati incercat? Cum vi-se par?

Daca aveti experientele cu ele, sau orice intrebari legate de pozele de mai sus, let me know si povesitm mai multe in comentarii.

Va pupacesc.
