Urban Mermaid


Now that spring time is finally here, I'm craving chilly floral cocktails and long nights out, more than ever.

Somehow, I only feel I'm awake when the sun starts to set and my daze turns to a rush of lust, for music and dancing and never ending nights.

This mood was the setup for today's pictures. Me and Vlad were falling in love with the promise of an early summer with all the adventures it has in stake for us.

And this absolutely gorgeous sequin dress was the cherry on top.

I tied my hair in a bun on top of my head, and let the tips fall in front, styling them like bangs on a teen's forehead.

It reminded me of the days when me and the girls would get together to prep up for the upcoming party. But the party would always start at our place, while we were bonding an unbreakable bond, with shared lipsticks and spilled secrets, between another curl and another toast.

In the background, you could hear with a shiver, the lyrics that never seas to give me goosebumps:..

"Tooooniiighhtttt.. We are young, so let's set the world on fire, we can buuurn brighteer..."

And you know what? That song really gives me momentum!

It gives me that shot of craziness, that can't wait one second longer to go on a sprint with life, with my head held up high and my heart pounding in my throat.


Acum ca a venit primavara mi-a venit pofta de iesit in oras, de cocktailuri reci si florale si de socializat cat e ziua de lunga.

Terasele imi fac cu ochiul si abia seara simt ca ma trezesc, cand deja imi zboara gandul la muzica, dansul si emotia care stiu ca urmeaza.

Cu starea asta in gand am facut pozele cu Vlad si rochia aceasta absolut superba.

Mi-am prins parul intr-un coc jucaus, cu varfurile stilizate ca un breton adolescentin si i-am dat drumul. Imi place mult look-ul final, fiindca e atat de neglijent si usor.

Ca zilele cand ne intalneam cu fele sa ne aranjam inainte de petrecere, iar petrecerea incepea defapt de la noi de acasa, cand ne apropiam prin rujul pe care-l imparteam, sisecretele dezvaluite cu nonsalanta, intre o bucla si un toast..

In fundal se aude piesa celor de la Fun...

"Tooooniiighhtttt.. We are young, so let's set the world on fire, we can buuurn brighteer..."

Mi-se face pielea de gaina de fiecare data cand intra refrenul.

Asta fiindca niciodata nu vom mai fi asa de tineri cum suntem acum.

Si stii ceva? Asta ma imi da momentum.

Imi da impulsul acela de nebunie sa fac un sprint in propria aventura. Cu capul inainte si inima in gat.

Later, when the lights will be shut and our hands sweaty, when that sweet adrenaline will keep us moving with the rhythm, we'll know, that one gaze will say it all.

Me and her, the one who's eyes I painted carefully, between stubborn laughter, just a few hours earlier.

And we'll run outside to say a truth so urgent and so immediate, it couldn't even wait for the song to be over.

The night ends with love vows. Not from him, nor from them for my girls, but between us, me and her. Or us, two, or three.

Promising each other that we'll grow old together and that we'll have each other. Promises of loyalty and tolerance. Promises so hard to keep, compared to those between lovers.

Because girls are mean, and they're cunning, but when you'll meet those few chicks that will whisper they love you, while in line at the girls bathroom.. you'll know this may be different.

You should hold on to them, close and tightly, with honesty and kindness. The kind of blessing we'd wish we'd get ourselves.

And, although I'm telling you all this with my bestie on my mind, Dia, that shares both my name and half of my life, I'm actually on a rush to get ready for a different lady party right now. It's Madalina Merca's Bday and we're all going to a spa today, and I honestly can't wait for some quality, female time in warm waters. 

And tonight, hmmm, who knows? After writing this I sure as hell am craving a good old adventurous night out!

By the way, where do you like to go out? I'm really curious where you make the best of memories.



Mai tarziu, cand luminile vor fi stinse si palmele transpirate, iar o dulce adrenalina ne poarta dupa ritmul muzicii, vom stii ca dintr-o privire, ne vom putea intelege.

Eu si tipa, a carui ochi i-am pictat chiar eu, cu atentie mare intre rasetele isterice, chiar cu cateva ore inainte.

Si vom goni afara si vom spune adevaruri atat de urgente si de actuale, incat nu mai pot astepta nici pana se termina piesa.

Seara se incheie cu dedicatii de dragoste. Nu intre mine si el, nici intre fetele mele si cei ce le curteaza, ci intre noi doua, poate trei, sau patru.

Promisiuni ca vom ajunge babute impreuna si ca ne vom avea una pe celalalta. Promisiuni de loialitate si de toleranta. Promisuni mai grele de tinut, ca cele intre sexe opuse, care vrei, nu vrei, te leaga intr-o alta maniera.

Fetele sunt rele, si sunt sirete, dar cand prindem acele cateva tipe care te strang noaptea de mana, la coada de la baie, si iti soptesc ca te iubesc.. da, acele sunt de tinut.

De tinut strans si aproape, cu sinceritatea si bunatatea pe care ne-am dori-o si noi la randul nostru.

Si, desi o aveam pe Dia, prietena mea, care, intamplator, imi imparte si numele, in gand, de data asta sunt pe graba sa ies din casa cu alte fete. In cateva ore mergem la spa de ziua Madalinei Merca si abia astept un girly time in apa calda.

Si diseara.. hmm.. inca nu stiu, dar dupa ce v-am scris, mi s-a aprins si mai tare focul pentru o noapte de colectie.

Apropo, voi pe unde iesiti? Sunt chiar curioasa unde va faceti amintirile cele mai epice.
