On an early morning in Los Angeles, when you choose to leave your flat for a closer look of the stunning sunrise, you want to go for something heavier, for the ante meridiem can be quite chilly. Since I didn’t bother to fill my suitcase with any extra coats, this camel suede Gestuz jacket was pretty much my only salvation for quite a while… Until I got invaded with a bunch of gifts that happened to include the pieces I was missing the most during my trip. But I’ll talk about that another time.

For now, I wish you all a good start of the week…

I might have said it many many times before, not sure whether it was in interviews or on the blog, but whenever I travel somewhere unusual, my style really changes. When I was in China, my style got very “Japanese schoolgirl”, in Paris I breathe elegance, in London I get into the Boho chic trend, and in Los Angeles… Well this is a tricky one. I can’t describe my style exactly, but I can say that it’s definitely leaning towards girlish/indie summer style, with slight signs of obsession with Stylestalker and temporary tattoos.

A trip to Venice beach somewhere in the middle of my stay in LA made me realize one thing: there is Los Angeles, and there is Venice.  So on Presidents Day, I slipped into a comfy yet classy outfit from NEXT to explore the West side of the city of angels. I don’t know about you guys, but to me what I wear influences my state of mind so much. In order to feel good and enjoy myself, I need to be wearing something comfortable, a bit oversized, just like these wide leg pants and shirt from Next.

It is absolutely fascinating to observe how different Venice is. It has its own history, subcultures, a completely different atmosphere with unique characters. And obviously beach sunsets absolutely win my heart.

And my first post from LA comes as a… party report! I’m not much of a party reporter though, or reporter in general, therefore I’ll ask you to forgive the lack of salt, pepper and juiciness in my monotonous text. However, what can provide a little bit of panic and gossiping is my reaction to seeing the full “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Originals” cast and hanging on the same dance floor, with pretty much the same drinks. Yes, I do watch those. #guiltypleasures

So I’ll bid you good day, or night (the time zone difference is seriously damaging my straight thinking) and head to bed… probably accompanied by dreams of vampires and hybrids.

With all the time zone differences, meetings clashing with each other and obviously, that 160* panorama of Los Angeles from the Soho House terrace, I shamelessly admit that my blog hasn’t been my priority lately. And to think about it, I haven’t even finished my Austria posts! Shame on you, Doina, for unconsciously sunbathing while your winter outfits are stocked in dusty untouched folders on your hard drive!

And even though the upcoming week is going to be MAJORLY busy with all the Oscars activities, I am taking the situation in my hands, as blogging comes first!

So here I am, all bundled up in my empty double bed somewhere in the hilly lands on Los Angeles, that have been walked by thousands of icons and idols. I sincerely apologize for my unusually long absence from my blog, the only defence I have for myself is: BAFTA, partying, packing, flying, jet lag starvation and lack of sleep.

But I woke up this morning with my room being filled with the warm Californian sun, so my present situation can’t be described as unpleasant or undesired. And ironically enough, my post today is not about the LA palms, or my delicious $40 breakfast at whole foods (don’t ever let me enter that shop again!), but it is about one of the most coveted events of the British society, the BAFTA.

I chose to go for a more classy meets new age outfit, wearing a StyleStalker suit and Charlotte Simone bon bon bag.

Special thanks to CÎROC Vodka for the beautiful evening.

For those who already follow me on Instagram, this post doesn’t come as a surprise. After sharing quite a few “colourful” makeup styles I’ve been trying lately, it was time to take my newborn love to the next level, aka The Golden Diamonds blog. 

Somehow my obsession with colours was evolving at the same time that L’Oreal started talking about a new contest, which can undoubtedly be categorised as the contest of the year, with the theme… “Colour Clash”! And that’s exactly what I wanted to tell you more about today.

The past half a year have really changed my view of makeup. I have started appreciating it, being fascinated by the art you can achieve with a few brushes and shadows, watching dozens of tutorials… and then watching them again. Especially with a new social side of my life appearing on the horizon, I simply could not trust anyone else, and I had to start learning makeup techniques myself, so when the time comes, I can give myself a Hollywood look on par with authentic Hollywood.

When I found out about The Brush Contest organised by L’Oreal, I even felt responsible to let all my friends, acquaintances, readers, about the amazing opportunity, since I myself am such a big fan of beauty and makeup, and that’s exactly why I teamed up with the company to launch this amazing contest.  

So what’s in it for you?

      1 year contract as an expert Makeup Designer for L’Oreal Paris worth €100 000! 

What do you have to do for it?

     Simply upload a short 3-min video tutorial of your interpretation of Colour Clash theme HERE.

It’s open to everyone, makeup artists, bloggers, bloggers, makeup lovers, the only requirement is creativity!

The final winner will get the chance to go to the worldwide final in Paris which will be hosted by one of the world’s favourite actresses and L’Oreal Spokesmodel Eva Longoria. So make sure to enter NOW!

Good Luck!!

My Moon Boots arrived when I was out in meetings. Upon my arrival, my boyfriend, with a very confused but serious tone, said “Doina, mmm, you got some kind of astronaut boots delivered today. I was very confused by that, so I went and researched it. Apparently, people do wear Moon Boots just as normal boots”, that was both cute and charming, and still makes me giggle every time I remember….

It’s funny to watch myself become obsessed with videos, and now be one of those people who has their iphone in their hands non-stop, recording every single moment. Ok, about that… I’m still getting used to the idea of filming my life, so apologies for the lack of continuity and direct talking or any other mistakes I make. However, I hope that with every new short film I do, I’ll get better and better, and able to share the most beautiful moments from my experiences with you.

Something many of you wanted to know more about is my type of “business trip”, which is basically a short trip, with a particular goal, as a blogger. What exactly is the goal in this case? To explain it in an easier way, brand experience and sharing my impressions with you, my dear readers.

One of those experiences happened last weekend, when I was invited by SuperTrash to witness the catwalk of the new Autumn/Winter 2015 collection that took place in an absolutely unusual, awesome location, Amsterdam Centraal Station. Here is a closer look at the “behind the perfect Instagram photos” moments, as well as some of my favourite looks from the collection below…

I have realized that the internet has absolutely taken over our lives. I am seating at my hotel breakfast during our ski trip to Austria, typing this. It’s meant to be my first proper annual leave, but here I am, unable to resist the urge, just because it’s something I genuinely enjoy doing. Taking hundreds of photos, videos, to be able to share that with you, my dear readers, brings me happiness, as well as finding new interesting ways of sharing my style and fashion interests with you. 

One of those ways would be the new app “to have”, coming straight out of my favourite country, Japan. With a big community of the coolest Japanese trendsetters and now your favourite Western brands, bloggers and style influencers, Wear is the place to find style and shopping inspiration. Now if any of you, looking at my Instagram feel the same frustrations that I go through whenever I see an awesome outfit, details of which I can’t get, follow me on Wear in order to be kept up to date on what I’m wearing off “blog” duty, as well as shop some of my favourite pieces.

I can finally say  s u b s c r i b e   t o   m y   Y O U T U B E, because I’m finally proud of it! And I know that I promised to update you with videos more often, guys, and I know I haven’t kept my promise, but I have a very good reason for that.

You see, I’m a perfectionist. I simply can’t stand the idea of not completely dedicating yourself to something and not giving it the 100% best of you. After self-learning, hundreds of video tutorials, pages of forums, I can firmly say this is my best EVER video edit! I am so happy and pleased with it, and one more time it proves my belief that quality is always more important than quantity.

So if you’re as excited as I am and want to see more behind the scenes from my life, make sure to subscribe to my Youtube and get notified each time I post something.

Looking forward to hearing your feedback!

Yours,

[With this I’m starting a new series of posts on my blog, sharing with you my favourite beauty/makeup/hair products, since this has been the most request topic from my readers lately.]

These products might look very familiar to you, even though they’re not being sold in the country you live in, or even though you’ve never used them before… but how come? Well, there is a very simple explanation and that would be – Instagram. Don’t laugh, but the sad truth is, I know situations when people only buy Aesop products just for the whole digital media fuss around it. I myself love the packaging, i think they’re one of the most beautiful products on the market. But since I’m not an Instagram flat-lay guru, I’m not in the need or position to buy them just based on the aesthetics.

In the past few months I have met quite a few people who have expressed to me their true love towards Aesop, and after reading online reviews, I decided it was time to try some (and damn would they be good for photos! though I haven’t yet taken any, and it’s been a few weeks…).

And since Aesop is my month’s favourite, I’ve decided to show you the whole selection I got, but the product I really wanted to share with you is the Facial Oil. I tend to put it on before I go to bed, since I don’t like oil consistency in general (I’m a nightmare for any masseur) and want to avoid actually feeling my skin oily and greasy. However, when I wake up in the morning, my skin feels so soft and most importantly, a lot more rested. And since my schedule has been super hectic with my trip coming to LA, that’s absolutely crucial for me.

Hope this was useful!

I’ll start sharing more of my beauty secrets with you guys, so would be good if you can leave me your feedback regarding what you’d want to know, and if it’s something interesting for you in general.

Love,

When Tod’s knit and ByDimitri leather meet, dangerously sleek chic happens. What does that even mean, “dangerously sleek chic”? Though my rational thought contradicts the above statement and categorizes it into “silly things Doina says” (you should see my boyfriend’s dictionary of those), my empirical evidence proves me right.

There are things in this world that we simply see one way or another, without an existing precise explanation for that. And I have never been good at constructing and developing my thinking into something rational… or at least not since English has become my primary language (as the very gorgeous and wise Sofia Vergara once said “You don’t know how smart I am in Spanish”. even though Spanish doesn’t apply to my situation, the point remains). However, my statements are based on what I have seen, touched, felt and experience; and when I see something absolutely fabulous, I know to identify it.

For all those ladies out there who struggle with outfit choices, or lack of new pieces flowing through the doors of their wardrobe, here is an excellent trick to staying cool on a minimum budget. Go through your boyfriend’s/dad’s/brother’s closet and steal  e v e r y t h i n g .  Obviously with the intention of returning it all safely the following day.

  1. oversized blazers with skinny black jeans;
  2. oversized blazers with a thick waist belt and full length skirt;
  3. oversized blazers with a thin waist belt and mini leather skirt;
  4. oversized white shirt with skinny blue jeans;
  5. oversized white shirt tucked inside boyfriend blue jeans + massive necklace + heels;
  6. oversized waistcoat with a white turtleneck jumper and slim flared trousers; 
  7. +∞  other ways to implement menswear into your wardrobe.

 

Embrace your boyish side with all the courage! This is the start of your “half-masculine” obsession, which unfortunately I haven’t yet found a cure for.
