10 Things You Didn't Know About Me

June 22, 2018

Hey lovelies!

After checking the results on Insta story, I can honestly say this blog post is going to be one of the most difficult ones ever. I wan't sure wether I should write about my summer fashion obsessions or just 10 things (I hate) about myself *joking*. You guys gave me a hard time and made me write about myself. 

Few of the things here were on my Insta Stories earlier this year, but these are an essential part of who I am and what I became, some might be inspirational for some of you so without further ado, let's get down to bizness:

1. I was fat for my entire life until 18. I know some of you might be offended by the word "fat" and would prefer another diplomatic term such as "overweight", but this is about myself, who I was, is not about you now. Alright? I am not calling anyone fat. Unless they are. LOL. Yes I was bullied for a while, but I never cared to be perfectly honest with you. I was the smartest in my class, most talented in Arts, shared my homework with everybody, always wore really cool clothes (I was receiving tons of gorgeous clothes from my auntie Mioara who used to live in San Francisco - thank you, love you!), I was always fun and autoironic too, so the people loved me. The children who bullied me (and who now are fat, karma is a bitch) learned to see past my appearance and loved me for who I was as an individual. And that was amazing! Never hide, don't be afraid to show who you truly are, no matter how you look like. This body is temporary by the way.
I didn't even care about losing weight, but when I turned 18 I started a diet and managed to get rid of 20 kg as Zara came into town (Polus Centre in Cluj for those who remember the times) so I had to fit in their clothes for prom! The most I had was 83kg, and I am now 62kg, more or less. I am not skinny now, nor am I perfectly toned but I am healthy and trying to be the best version of myself. And in case you're wondering how come I'm not overweight at 60+ kilos, it's because I'm over 1.75cm. Cheers to that!

2. I had my hair really short *read shaved *for the first 7 or 8 years of my life. My parents say I had really thin hair and that would help me get awesome hair. Is it a myth? I don't know but the hair that I have now is all mine and as healthy as it can be. 

3. I lack diplomacy, and for that fact I don't have many friends. Most people love beautiful lies, but I am not the one to present'em with that. Honesty is one of the most important principles of my life and I will always stand by it. Choosing words carefully and hiding behind beautiful and meaningless words is just not me. Sorry / not sorry.

4. Contrary to what you might believe, I don't like living in London. I am just tired of everything, from weather to commuting and all the crazy stuff happening here in between. I am planning of moving out ASAP.

5. I married Cristian almost 3 years ago and that was the best day of my life so far. So sorry guys, stop sending me "combination mode" message. Not interested.

6. I am not afraid of letting people go. Whoever doesn't fit into my life, whoever brings negative vibes and negative energy into my life, the friends I used to be friends with but it's clearly not working anymore, ex-boyfriends, people with whom I don't get along or the ones I simply do not like...oh well, I just ignore them. I do not believe in relationships just for the sake of it. If there's no love, respect and understanding, fuck off. This applies to some "friends" I had for more than 20 years. They call me a dictator, they call me a nazy, but who cares? I surely don't.

7. Even though I love Colas, my black cat, I consider myself a dog person. I dream about getting a dog sometime soon (and keeping Colas for life, of course!) so he and Colas can be best friends; Colas acts like a dog anyway. I never had a dog before so I am really excited about adopting one in the near future.

8. I don't have any plastic surgeries, any fillers, extensions, fake lashes, fake tan, fake nails and do not plan on getting any. I believe we are all beautiful in our own unique way, we should respect and protect our bodies; they are the temples of our souls, aren't they?

9. I love beautiful people, inside and out. I believe the inner beauty always reflects on the outside and I do not consider those plastic girls, who all have the same lip fillers, same abs, same nose and tanned skin to be beautiful. Beauty is what you're born with, not what the doctors give you. This is my opinion, respect it as I respect yours. I do not ask anyone to agree with me.

10. Although I started the Uni back in Cluj-Napoca, my hometown - I went to UAD and studied Graphics, after earning an Erasmus scholarship to European Academy of Art in Brittany, I fell in love with the school and the teachers and decided to have an equivalence test. I got accepted straight into the 3rd year for my Bachelor's Degree. I lived in Rennes, France for almost two years and I loved every single moment of it. A big thank you to Tom Drahos, my Photography teacher for believing so much in me. You made me go further!

So, that's all folks! If you guys are interested in any of these facts more, don't hesitate to comment below and ask me questions. I'd be more than happy to respond, or who knows, create a new blog post based on what you are most interested in.
