As soon as the warm season hits, I’m always at the airport, heading somewhere new. That is not to say that I get to rest any other time during the year, but summer is usually the time when I pack two suitcases and leave for a few good weeks that turn into a month or more.

When that happens, light clothes are my priority and the fact that it’s summer makes it quite easy to manage putting together a “travelling wardrobe”. This midi raspberry dress is one of those pieces that weigh nothing but make quite a statement.

One trip to Los Angeles changed my life; what can’t even start imagining what happens when I go the second time, the third, and so on… It is one of those cities where things just somehow happen without any expectations. It changes both your life and the way you see things, makes you believe in dreams, in yourself; you become a lot more relaxed about everything and open to so many experiences.

That is why I think my first modelling editorial was meant to be exactly in Los Angeles. With Tom Fraud’s encouragement and the team’s help, we managed to capture some beautiful pictures at one of my favourite places in town, Mondrian Los Angeles.  So thanks a lot to LA, the team, Fashionising and my agency for making everything real.

You can see the full editorial HERE.

It turns out a few hours in Oxford are a perfect retreat to clear your mind from the busy London. Only 1h away, it really does differ from the lifestyle of the capital so much and takes you back to memories of childhood, Harry Potter, dreams and magic. From hidden Taiwanese bubble tea shop to local markets filled with beautiful fresh flowers, it has pretty much everything you need to just wander around, without purpose, just spending time in the company of old beautiful England.

FOLLI FOLLIE SS15 CAMPAIGN http://thegoldendiamonds.com/folli-follie-ss15-doina-ciobanu/ http://thegoldendiamonds.com/folli-follie-ss15-doina-ciobanu/#comments Fri, 15 May 2015 09:20:25 +0000 http://thegoldendiamonds.com/?p=10300 goldendiamonds-folli-follie-ss15-campaign2 Can’t express how excited I am about sharing a part of the UK Folli Follie Spring Summer campaign that I modelled for quite a while ago.

Can’t express how excited I am about sharing a part of the UK Folli Follie Spring Summer campaign that I modelled for quite a while ago.

One of the wonderful things about being a blogger is that even in the role of a model, most of the time you still get to be a part of the “raw” process as I call it, which is styling, creativity, logistics, etc. which is why I enjoy doing it so much. 

My Folli Follie SS15 campaign is very much like that. In terms of styling, I was free to choose any outfit to transcend my style as a London girl, which varies a lot of times. From elegant to boho, from grungy to sensual, as you’ve already seen my sense of fashion is very… Broad haha, and it changes all the times depending on the location, music I’m listening to, weather or people I’m with.

Today I’m only sharing with you 2 looks, however, you’ll be able to see the full campaign live in the Folli Follie stores! I’ll be sharing my 3rd look on the blog soon too with a special surprise for you so keep a look out!

The first look is pretty much my “meetings day” outfit.(if I had a car at my disposal every time I had meetings, so maybe on a normal basis -the heels). Paired with a bright bag that makes the outfit pop and some accessories for the modern woman like a watch, necklace and obviously, a pair of statement sunglasses.

The second outfit for the campaign was inspired by the festival season. A lace boho dress with an open neck and a thin necklace, colourful bag and statement bracelets… oh and also don’t forget the bindi! Definitely something I’ll be wearing a lot this summer.

I suppose the title has already given me away. Yes, it’s Paris again. Not myself unfortunately, I am not in Paris, I a pretty much in the same old London, but walking around Covent Garden the other day, I found this little corner that brought a Deja-Vu of my favourite city. Perhaps the stripes were the reason, or my straw hat that reminds me of what Gabrielle Chanel used to wear on summer days in the South of France… or maybe the flowers? There is just a lot of little details that make me want to book a ticket to Paris for tomorrow. Oh and believe me, I did look, but then I checked my schedule and realize my life is way too full of responsibilities for that. How ironic, you’d think that since my life consists merely of work I can do online, I can just escape whenever and wherever I want, but unfortunately that’s not really the case…

Trying to finally go through some more of my Istanbul photos, and slowly (Universe help me!), I’ll finish the Travel Guide of the city that i’ve been putting together for more than a month. Takes quite a long time, but I like to research everywhere I’ve been to one more time and provide you with useful information like adresses, other people’s opinions, and any other interesting piece of information I can find.

Now regarding this stunning Three Floor dress, you’ll laugh if I tell you how long I’ve been meaning to show it to you in blog photos (you’ve probably seen it on my blog quite a few times). It was one of my favourite pieces to wear while I was in LA, it just works really well with the ambiance of the city, as well as the nice warm weather. But hey, doesn’t look any worse in Istanbul either, right?

Hello everyone! Sorry for my recent absence, I’ve been going through quite a rough time zone adaptation once I got back to London due to a ridiculously early flight at 2am. So I’ve been catching up with sleep in the past few days, my brain being unable to deliver any results. But I’ve finally finished editing the two videos I’ve filmed for you (one in English and one in Romanian), showing you LIVE swatches of my Anastasia Beverly Hills lipsticks.

Bambah dress and Swarovski bracelets (Cinderella and Candy bangles) / Swarovski rings (Vittore and Curly) / Swarovski necklace

Whether I’m spending my Spring in Japan or not, I have decided I can’t miss the opportunity to do a photo shoot with blossoms. After all, they are a pretty rare phenomenon, and I don’t want another year gone without some magical memories and an inspiration to book a trip to Japan for next April (yes, 2016, I plan in advance… Actually no, I never do, but would be useful to).

After scrolling down dozens of the prettiest Instagram profiles I follow, I have come to realise that the Far East is not the only place on the planet with beautiful blossoms. Thanks to the Instagrammers, we discovered that Regent’s Park is full of them, so we took a tour around the park during the weekend. As soon as we started walking through the rows of elegant trees covered in soft flowers, a memory ran through my mind “Crystal Gardens”. A few days earlier I got a few Swarovski pieces from the new SS2015 collection, and together with the package I received a cute postcard with that beautiful name on it. “ Crystal Gardens” I thought, “I want a blog post that would reflect that concept and I want it here”. The next thing you know I am in the park wearing the most cliche outfit you could imagine for a photo shoot with blossoms, but it’s one of those cliches that I enjoy doing, and people enjoy admiring.

The morning we photographed was quite special. It’s been a while since I’d worn something so… dreamy. The Bambah Boutique dress was the perfect choice for the surroundings, Disney inspired and covered in flowers. The jewellery though, here I decided not to exaggerate, and go for something both chic and simple. These Swarovski pieces are such perfect basics for the warm season, complementing a casual outfit, and adding that little extra to an evening elegant look. Not to mention how long I’ve been looking for a thin top finger ring that I could implement in my travelling style this summer, just like the candy bangles, which are so light and pretty to wear! In my years of blogging I’ve realised how important jewellery is, especially for a person who’s always on the go like myself. You can save yourself a lot of trouble when packing, because with the right rings and necklaces you can take the same outfit from working day to an evening elegant style, which is what I’ve been doing a lot lately.

I am wearing: GUESS dress and boots 

To be honest, I have no idea how summer came around so quickly. Spring is a terribly fascinating time of the year, for it brings all types of weather, starting with snow in March and summer days that call for sleveless clothes only 5 weeks later. It incorporates my favourite weather change moments, from blossoms to hot sun followed by warm rain, and obviously how can it not be my favourite season considering that’s when I’m born! (but i’ll stop mentioning that, ’cause I’m becoming annoying even to myself)

But perfect weather that reminds me of Los Angeles and the sound of the ocean waves calls for a California appropriate outfit. It’s glamorous, it’s sensual, and I can’t express how long I’ve had a crush on it- the Guess dress. You might recall it from David Bellemere’s stunning photos of Gigi Hadid for the campaign of the brand, but you probably haven’t seen it ever since considering it sold out as soon as it hit the stores. And here is where I feel like a lucky bunny. SOMEHOW Guess have found it for me and by doing so have made my summer way more beautiful.

Keeping up with my Sunday Video and this is my video #3. Today I want to share with you a super easy and fast hair tutorial, featuring one of my favourite hair styles ever since I got my hair extensions. I have been getting lots and lots of requests about hair, but I’ve discovered how hard it is to actually film it, especially when you have dark hair like mine. But I figured I’m not the only brunette out there, so even though braids look so much more awesome on blonde ombre hair, we too need some type of inspiration to not fall into despair and dye our hair!

Love,

Shanghai, ah Shanghai, you are a pearl of the Chinese Coastline. In the heart of modern architecture and skyscrapers, you hide the history and culture of one of China’s biggest cities. Even though my trip to Shanghai, travel diaries unlike fashion, can never really go outdated. For the few days I spent there, the city couldn’t have been more perfect, as I was already starting to consider living there for a while longer… For someone working in fashion, Shanghai is the heart of the Chinese industry, filled with creative and talented people, from designers to PRs and beauty gurus. It was very easy to make friends, and knowing just one person I ended up at cool art exhibitions and local cocktail bars eating the best focaccia in town. Ah sweet memories! But what made my trip even more pleasant was the perfect location. Thanks to Mandarin Oriental the Huangpu River and the Pearl Tower were my “good morning” and “good night” views.

The title is not really accurate, technically speaking today I woke up a year and 2 days older, but that wouldn’t look too good in the title, and the 2 days don’t exactly make a difference… Or maybe they do? My feelings are mixed, unexplained and insecure. I turned 21 on Monday, but the memory of how fast it went scares me, and while many laugh at my reaction, reassuring me that 21 is just the beginning of life, I keep feeling mixed and insecure. I am not a narcissist self-obsessed person, I do not fear ageing as much as I fear the pleasure of life and those special moments escaping from me. They said it’s only the beginning when I turned 18, then when I turned 20, then when I turned 21… Yet years have passed so fast and here I am confused and scared of the future, and my fears are seldom explained, for most often they are the fear of a change, rather than what that change brings with it. But then again, I’ve always been the weird sensitive one, so perhaps this whole meditation on the purpose of life and my place in the universe is a little unnecessary, so let’s pretend I just turned 21 and can legally consume alcohol in the US. Yay yay!

There is no need to reintroduce my deep love for rooftops. If there are two things I always look forward to when traveling, it is a very local rooftop or an isolated long beach, both inaccessible for tourists. Both, in different ways, make me feel free and peaceful. The rooftop overlooks the city, all the busy people running on the streets, working in their offices, meeting, kissing, falling in love, talking on their phones, saying Goodbye for the last time… The beach overlooks the sea, the ocean, so quiet and enormous compared to the size of one human being; with its own life, a big part of it still unknown to us; so quiet and loud, so peaceful and angry, the sea can be many things, the beginning of life or end of it. Looking at the sea is like looking at the sky at night, it seems so close, but is so infinite and full of mystery and beauty, foreign to us beauty.

And what place do you like the most? Where can you spend hours on your own without getting bored, what makes you feel peaceful?
