Rock those Boots!

Hello, everyone! I have been very much into the rocker chic trend lately, so you can expect seeing many outfits inspired by it on here in the near future. I finally found a pair of boots that matches my taste and needs at the same time. Now all I need is to find a pair on black and I will be set for this season. How do you like it?

Review& Giveaway: Tangle Teezer-Wash. Brush. Hair Fabulous

The Tangle Teezer brush was designed by Shaun P., who trained as a color technician in swish London salons, before globe trotting around the world. It is small (it fits in the palm of your hand), with short bristles, that come in various lengths, which is the key to this wonder tool. It is designed to gently de-tangle your hair, without the bristles breaking during use. I am delighted to tell you that the Tangle Teezer is now available in Romania and you can get your own here for the price of 50 RON.  I like the fact that it is available in a variety of colors (Panther Black, Blue Bella, Orange Burst, Pink Fizz and Posh Purple- the one I have), which makes it more attractive than the dull, regular combs.

My hair is long, curly and prone to tangles, so this product, designed to effortlessly and painlessly remove tangles seemed perfect for me. I have to mention that, before, I used a wide tooth comb. If you are looking for a device that’s going to cut right through your tangled hair, I must tell you that it is not exactly a realistic expectation. Still, this is by far the most effective tool I have ever used when it comes to painlessly working through tangles. I am able to run it through my wet hair with only one hand (instead of dividing it in sections and combing each one, using both hands), without it pulling or yanking my hair or causing me pain of any sort. In the more difficult areas, such as the back of my head, I have to insist a few times with the Tangle Teezer, but the effort is still diminished, compared to using the comb. It reduces hair breakage and works as a scalp-stimulating mini-massage, due to the short plastic bristles. It works just as easy on wet and dry hair.
The only downside of the Tangle Teezer is that it can get difficult to get to the underside of hair sometimes, especially you have abundant hair, due to the short bristles. Consequently, you have to tackle the top layer first and then move to the underside. Still, that is a small price to pay for how well it works!
Tip: To make it things more effortless, use a detangling spray of leave-in conditioner on your wet hair before using the Tangle Teezer. It is a winning combination, believe me!
This product is priceless for me, due to the fact that it has dramatically reduced the time spent working through tangles and alleviated the pain. Do you own a Tangle Teezer? Did it work just as well for you?

 Peria Tangle Teezer a fost inventata de Shaun P., care s-a remarcat ca tehnician al culorii in saloanele din Londra inainte sa inceapa sa lucreze in toata lumea. Peria este destul de mica la prima vedere (incape in palma) si are un design inovator centralizat concav care ofera fermitate parului de la radacina pana la varf. Este prevazuta cu peri scurti, de lungimi variabile, care reprezinta cheia eficacitatii sale. Tangle Teezer este acum disponibila si in Romania, asa ca va puteti achizitiona propriul exemplar aici, la pretul de 50 RON. Imi place faptul ca este disponibila intr-o varietate de culori: Panther Black, Blue Bella, Orange Burst, Pink Fizz si Posh Purple- alegerea mea), lucru ce o face mult mai atractiva decat pieptanul obisnuit.

Parul meu este lung, ondulat si predispus la incurcare, in special dupa spalare, asa ca acest produs, special proiectat pentru a descurca fara efort si durere parea solutia perfecta. Precizez ca inainte utilizam un pieptan cu dinti rari. Daca va aflati in cautarea unui produs care sa treaca in mod miraculos prin parul incurcat, trebuie sa va spun ca nu este tocmai o asteptare realista. Cu toate acestea, Tangle Teezer este, de departe, cel mai eficient instrument de descurcare pe care l-am utilizat vreodata. Pot sa trec peria Tangle Teezer prin parul proaspat spalat cu o singura mana, fara sa simt ca trage sau imi smulge parul, in loc sa il separ in sectiuni si sa le pieptan pe fiecare in parte, folosindu-ma de ambele maini. In zonele mai dificile, in special la ceafa, sunt nevoita sa trec peria de cateva ori prin par, insa efortul este diminuat, comparativ cu utilizarea pieptanului. Mai mult, Tangle Teezer reduce semnificativ numarul firelor de par rupte si functioneaza ca un mini-masaj de stimulare a scalpului, datorita perilor scurti din plastic. Este la fel de eficienta pe parul umed sau uscat.
Singurul inconvenient pe care l-am identificat in privinta sa este ca, uneori, descurcarea partii inferioare a parului poate fi dificila, in special daca aveti parul des, datorita lungimii perilor. In consecinta, va trebui sa va ocupati intai de partea de deasupra, pentru ca apoi sa treceti la sectiunile mai greu accesibile. Acest detaliu mi se pare, insa, nesemnificativ, avand in vedere cat de bine functioneaza.
Pont: Pentru a usura si mai mult lucrurile, utilizati un spray pentru descurcare sau balsam leave-in pe parul proaspat spalat, inainte de a utiliza Tangle Teezer. Este o combinatie de succes, credeti-ma!
Acest produs este nepretuit pentru mine, datorita faptului ca a redus semnificativ timpul dedicate descurcarii parului si a atenuat durerea asociata acesteia. Detineti o perie Tangle Teezer? Functioneaza la fel de bine in cazul vostru?

Si acum surpriza: Daca v-am starnit curiozitatea, puteti participa la un giveaway care are ca premiu o perie Tangle Teezer, nuanta Blue Bella :

Taken 2

Directed by: Olivier Megaton
Cast: Liam Neeson, Famke Janssen, Maggie Grace
‘First they took his daughter. Now they're coming for him.’
Retired CIA agent Bryan Mills and his wife are taken hostage while visiting Istanbul by the relatives of the Albanian human kidnappers Mills had killed while rescuing his daughter.
My opinion:
Although less intense, suspenseful and creative than the first Taken movie, Taken 2 still offers an enjoyable hour and a half at the cinema. Liam Neeson seems to invigorate every movie he appears in and is in great shape at his 60 years of age. Another plus of the movie is the spectacular setting: the streets of Istanbul. Recommended

Regizor: Olivier Megaton
Distributie: Liam Neeson, Famke Janssen, Maggie Grace
            “Intai i-au luat fiica. Acum vor veni dupa el.”
            Fostul agent CIA Bryan Mills si sotia lui sunt luati ostatici in timp ce vizitau orasul Istanbul, de catre rudele traficantilor de carne vie de origine albaneza pe care Mills ii ucisese anterior, in incercarea de a-si salva fiica rapita.
Parerea mea:
Desi mai putin intens, captivant si creativ decat primul film Taken, Taken 2 ofera, totusi, o ora si jumatate petrecute placut la cinema. Liam Neeson pare sa insufleteasca fiecare film in care joaca si este intr-o forma excelenta, la cei 60 de ani ai sai. Un alt plus al filmului este reprezentat de cadrele spectaculoase: strazile din Instanbul. Recomandat.

How to Style your Denim Jacket

I’ve had this denim jacket since forever and during the last few years, it just sat in a corner my closet, completely ignored. Until a few days ago, when I decided to actually do something about it and make it more wearable. I bought some metallic accessories - I went for something other than studs because I did not want to ruin the fabric and was looking for something a little more original, while studs are everywhere this season- sowed them on the collar and pockets and already had a new jacket for the fall. Have you tried doing something similar with your jackets/ shirts? 

P.S.: More DIY projects coming up in the future. I think I caught the taste of it after a little practise.
            Am aceasta geaca din denim de ani buni, dar in ultima vreme statea uitata intr-un colt al sifonierului meu,  complet ignorata. Pana acum cateva zile, cand am decis sa fac ceva in acest sens si sa o transform intr-un obiect vestimentar mai purtabil. Zis si facut: am achizitionat cateva mici accesorii metalice- am optat pentru altceva decat tinte, in primul rand deoarece nu vroiam sa distrug materialul infigandu-le pur si simplu, apoi pentru ca  sezonul acesta este plin de tinte, iar eu cautam ceva mai original- le-am cusut pe guler si buzunare si deja aveam o noua geaca de toamna. Ati incercat un experiment similar cu gecile/ camasile voastre?

P.S.: Vor mai urma postari tip DIY. Cred ca am deprins gustul lucrului manual, dupa putina practica.
