Joico Blonde Life- Cum imi ingrijesc parul blond

 RO Parul blond este foarte greu de intretinut din toate punctele de vedere. Despre folosirea nuantatorului anti-ingalbenire v-am vorbit deja intr-o postare anterioara iar acum a venit vremea sa vorbim despre ingrijire. 
Vreau sa va povestesc experienta mea si produsele pe care le folosesc eu, dar asta nu inseamna ca parul meu este perfect. Parul meu arata rezonabil avand in vedere ca de un an de zile il stresez cu vopsea menita sa il transforme din brunet in blond.
 Cea mai mare problema cu care se confrunta un par blond este despicarea varfurilor si intr-un final ruperea acestuia. Pentru a preintampina aceasta problema trebuie sa folosim produse de calitate. Intr-adevar sunt mai scumpe insa si podoaba noastra capilara este foarte importanta si merita toata atentia. Eu am ales sa folosesc produsele Joico din gama Blonde Life si consider ca sunt exact ceea ce imi trebuie. 
De cand il folosesc parca nici nu mai am nevoie de nuantator pentru ca neutralizeaza nuantele de blond nedorite si in plus ofera stralucire si rezistenta firului de par. 
Aplic o cantitate mica de produs insa la contactul cu apa face o spuma bogata si spala parul in profunzime.  
Dupa samponare folosesc masca de par din aceeasi gama Joico si o las sa actioneze 5 minute. Dupa 5 minute parul devine matasos si moale fiind pregatit pentru coafat. 
Nu folosesc niciodata uscatorul de par pentru a nu il stresa si mai tare si dupa masca sterg parul cu prosopul si aplic un ulei de par. Fiind destul de scurt, am evitat sa ii tai varfurile dar cateodata este bine sa luam putin si din varfuri pentru regenerare. 

Voi cum va ingrijiti parul? Aveti produse preferate?

ENG Blond hair is very difficult to maintain in good health. I already described in a previous post how I use Anti Yellow Correction spray and now is time to discuss about hair care. 
I want to share with you my experience and the products that I use but this doesn't mean that my hair is perfect. I consider that my hair looks good considering the fact that for almost a year I stressed it trying to transform in blonde my natural hair color which is dark brown. 
The biggest problem faced by blonde hair is splitting the tips and eventually breaking it. To prevent this issue we need to use good quality products. Indeed it is more expensive but our hair is very important to us and we need to provide all the care that needs. 
I use Joico Blonde life products and consider that are very good products. Since I use Joico Blonde Life shampoo I almost don't need Anti-Yellow Correction spray because it neutralizes unwanted blond shades and additionally gives shine and resistance to the hair. 
I apply a small quantity of the product which in contact with water makes a rich foam and wash it very well.  After shampooing I use Joico Blonde Life hair mask and let it act for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes the hair becomes silky and soft and ready for hairstyle.
I never use the hair dryer to avoid stressing it even harder and after the mask, I wipe my hair with a towel and apply a hair oil. Being pretty short, I avoided cutting it off, but sometimes it's good to take some of the peaks for regeneration.

How do maintain healthy hair? Do you have any favorite products?

Locuri de vizitat in Viena- Belvedere Palace

RO Astazi va prezint un loc minunat din Viena, Palatul Belvedere. A fost construit ca resedinta de vara pentru principele Eugen de Savoia in prima parte a secolului 18. 
Aceasta opera arhitecturala baroca, este formata din 2 palate, unul superior si altul inferior, separate de o gradina imensa construita in 1803 si care reprezinta prima gradina alpina din Europa. Palatul superior a fost construit cu scopul de a avea o privire de ansamblu asupra orasului si dupa 1770 a fost folosit pentru a prezenta galeria imperiala de pictura. In prezent adaposteste cea mai mare colectie a lui Gustav Klimt din lume precum si arta anilor interbelici si postbelici. 
Palatul inferior servea drept resedinta de vara a printului Eugen. Fantanile arteziene din fata celor doua palate desavarsesc ansamblul arhitectural alaturi de gradinile palatelor si iazul din fata palatului superior menit sa reflecte fatada acestuia. 
Este un loc special vizitat zilnic de foarte multi turisti, un loc ce trebuie neaparat bifat atunci cand vizitati Viena. Eu l-am vizitat de cateva ori si de fiecare data m-a impresionat in mod placut mai ales ca florile din gradini sunt intr-o transformare continua.
 De asemenea exista si o cafenea unde puteti lua o gustare si va puteti bucura de acest loc minunat din Viena. 
Dupa cum vedeti, tinuta mea este una casual, cu accente de alb si nelipsitele dungi asa cum sublinia o prietena a blogului acum cateva zile :))

ENG Today I'm going to show you a wonderful place in Vienna, Belvedere Palace. It was built as the summer residence of Prince Eugene of Savoy in the early eighteenth century. This baroque architectural masterpiece consists of two palaces, an upper one and a lower one, separated by a huge garden build in 1803 which was the first alpine garden from Europe. 
The upper palace was built to have an overview of the city and starting with 1770 was used to display the Imperial Picture Gallery. Today the upper Belvedere houses the world's largest collection in the world of Gustav Klimt as well as the art of the interwar and post-war years.
The lower palace was used as the summer residence of Prince Eugen.  
The artesian fountains in front of the two palaces complete the architectural ensemble alongside the gardens of the palaces and the pond in front of the upper palace was designed to reflect its facade.
It is a special place visited by the tourists every day a place that is mandatory to be checked when visiting Vienna. 
I have seen it several times and each time I was impressed especially by the flowers from the gardens. You can find there a coffee shop where you can take a snack and enjoy this amazing place from Vienna. 
As you already notice, my outfit is very casual with white accents and the stripes always present lately as a friend of the blog noticed. :))

Review-Perles de Lalique

RO Imi plac foarte mult parfumurile, ca oricarei femei de altfel, insa in ultimul timp nu am descoperit niciunul care sa ma iubirile mele vechi despre care v-am mai vorbit pe blog si desigur nelipsitul Angel de la Thierry Mugler. Cu toate astea, de fiecare data cand intru intr-o parfumerie, incerc sa vad ce a mai aparut in speranta ca poate descopar vreo noua esenta. Eram la Douglas in Afi cand mi s-a oferit sa testez Perles de Lalique. Fara prea mare convingere l-am incercat si chiar i-am cerut si parerea sotului. Dupa cum se stie, un parfum la inceput este prea puternic pentru a ii percepe savoarea asa ca am plecat mai departe. Tot plimbandu-ma prin mall mi-am dat seama ca Perles de Lalique seamana izbitor de mult cu parfumul meu preferat Midnight Poison de la Dior, retras de pe piata acum cativa ani. 
Evident ca m-am intors si nu am rezistat tentatiei de a il avea. Nu stiu cum sa ii explic esenta astfel incat sa o puteti simti si voi, are note de patchouli si lemn de casmir completate de esente florale de trandafiri bulgaresti si iris. Cel mai bine ar fi sa il simtiti si voi si cu siguranta nu va va dezamagi. Ambalajul nu este wow, o sticla simpla, mata, care aminteste parca de un parfum vintage dar in acelasi timp seamana cu sticlele din drogheriile de demult.  
Singurul lucru de care ma indoiesc este rezistenta in timp. Este posibil sa ma obisnuiesc eu cu mirosul insa am impresia ca dupa cateva ore nu se mai simte. 
Il ador, insa simt nevoia sa il am tot timpul in geanta pentru improspatare. Este un parfum discret de vara si in ciuda acestui mic defect il iubesc. 

Voi ati descoperit in ultimul timp vreo esenta interesanta?

ENG I really love perfume, like any other girl, but lately, I didn't discover any new fragrance able to win my heart... I have my eternal love that I shared here on the blog and of course my dear Angel by Thierry Mugler. Nevertheless, each time I enter a perfume shop, I try to see what is new hoping that someday I may discover a new essence. 
I was in Douglas perfume shop in Afi mall in Bucharest when the girls from there offered me to test Perles de Lalique. Without any hope, I tried it and even ask my husband for an opinion. As you may already know, at first any perfume is so strong that you can barely identify the essence. 
While I was walking in the mall I realize that Perles de Lalique smells remarkably like my all time favorite Midnight Poison from Dior, that is no longer made. As you may imagine I couldn't resist the temptation to have it.  I don't know how to explain better the flavor: patchouli notes and cashmere wood combined with floral essences of the Bulgarian roses and Orris. You should go to the shop and try it by yourself, for sure it would not be a disappointment. 
The only thing that bothers me is that maybe is not strong enough to resist long time. 
Is it possible that I got used to the essence but my impression is that after few hours is gone, I always feel the need to have it in my purse to refresh it.  Despite this fact, I still adore it. It is a summerish perfume and I love to have it. 

Did you discover lately any new and interesting essence?

OOTD-Yellow match

RO Sedinta aceasta foto a fost cu ghinion, nici nu credeam ca voi reusi sa aleg cateva cadre pentru o postare.
 Iata ce s-a intamplat: am plecat eu frumusel de acasa, nebauta nemancata, vorba Biancai Dragusanu care a spus ca ea nu bea apa cu 10 ore inainte de o sedinta foto (Doamne fereste!). Ei bine eu nu mancasem pentru ca era vineri si vinerea ne-am facut un obicei de a manca seara in oras. 
Asadar plecasem ca o floricica in oras, cu aparatul foto in geanta cu gandul ca voi avea timp si de cateva fotografii pentru blog (gandire de blogger). Cand eram foarte aproape de metrou a inceput si ploaia...minunat. 
Ajung totusi la locatie, ma intalnesc cu sotul si ii zic sa facem cateva fotografii inainte de masa pentru ca apoi se insereaza si nu mai iese nimic. Desi picura putin si incepuse sa bata vantul, ma asez in pozitia de fotografiat si incerc sa ma tin locului. Ce sa merge uitam, ne sucim, aveam un singur obiectiv la noi, cel de distanta, nu mergea si pace. 
Zic asta e, ne uitam la el in restaurant si poate isi revine. 
Intram in restaurant, eu putin suparata pentru ca era obiectivul preferat, zic ca vreau noodles cu vita, el isi comanda cu fructe de mare si incepem sa sucim aparatul poate isi revine. Vine chelnerita cu doua castroane imense de supa de noddles si imi intoarce stomacul pe dos, castronul sotului mai mirosea si a fructe de mare imputite :))  Ne confruntam cu asiatica si ne dam seama ca sotul ii aratase gresit in meniul in germana ( pe care nu o stim niciunul) si asa ne adusese supa si nu paste. 
Ea zice ca nu se poate schimba comanda, noi ne dam seama ca a fost si greseala noastra, ea nu stia engleza, noi nu stiam germana, comandam inca o data cu gandul ca aia e platim 4 mancam 2 dar nu ne stricam seara de tot, se invarte ea pe acolo si intr-un final ne zice ca ne-a anulat supele si sa platim doar noodlesi. Iesim un pic stingheriti, toti asiaticii erau cu ochii pe noi. 
Intre timp identificasem 2 pozitii la aparat, care inca pareau sa functioneze, reusim sa facem cateva fotografii cu burta plina de noddles si asta e explicatia pentru care am ditamai burta in fotografii ( nu sunt grasaaa :))

EN- This photo-shoot was with bad luck from the beginning, I am surprised that I manage to have some photos to make this post. 
This is what happened: I left the house without any food or drink in my stomach based on what Bianca Dragusanu said that she doesn't drink water 10 hours before the photo-shooting (I'm just kidding).  Actually I was starving because usually on Friday evening we go out for dinner. So I left the house with my camera in order to make some photos for the blog as well. While I was approaching the metro station it started to rain. It was the first sign of bad luck. :)) Anyway I arrived at destination, discussed with my husband that we should make some photos before the dinner and we started the photo session. Surprise! The camera was somehow unable to work. We decided to cancel the session and go to dinner. 
At the restaurant I was a little annoyed about the situation and my husband decided to order for us some noodles, for me with beef and for him with seafood. While I was trying to fix the camera the order came and instead of noodles we received a large stinky soup. We decided that it is indeed a bad day to go out but nevertheless we ordered again noddles and we were determined not to ruin the entire evening. 
Long story short, after the dinner we were able to identify some working position on the camera and manage to have some photos. 
So to conclude...I'm not fat I just made the photo-shooting after some yummy noodles :))

OOTD-Melk Abbey

RO Daca tot m-am mutat in Viena, vreau sa explorez totul in interiorul si exteriorul Vienei, asa ca am inceput cu Abatia Melk situata la aproximativ 80 de km distanta de casa. De obicei nu caut prea multe informatii despre un loc nou pe care vreau sa il vizitez pentru ca vreau sa ma surprinda. De data aceasta am fost foarte incantata sa descopar Abatia Melk. 
Situata deasupra orasului Melk, este unul dintre cele mai mari si frumoase ansambluri din Europa in stil baroc. Am vizitat-o intr-o zi frumoasa de vara dar imediat ce am ajuns acolo a inceput o ploaie puternica de vara. :))
Cateva fotografii le-am facut asa printre picaturi dar imi place sa stau in ploaie vara asa ca nu a fost nici o problema. Abatia face parte din patrimoniul cultural mondial UNESCO fiind la inceput castel oferit apoi ordinului monahal benedict din Lambach. 
 Nu o sa va plictisesc cu o lectie de istorie a locului intrucat gasiti suficiente informatii pe internet. Tot ce trebuie sa stiti este ca daca aveti drum pe langa Viena nu trebuie sa o ratati. Este un loc minunat si linistit cu o incarcatura istorica si totodata este o ocazie buna sa va relatati si sa va bucurati de frumusetea locului. 

EN Now that I moved to Vienna, I want to explore everything inside and outside Vienna and I started with Melk Abbey located near the city at almost 80 km from my home. I usually do not google too much a location that I want to visit, because I want to be taken by surprise by the place, so all I needed to know was just that it is a nice place to visit, without any other expectations :)).  In this case, I was delighted to discover a beautiful and amazing place. Located above the town of Melk, is one of the biggest and most beautiful European Baroque ensembles. I visited on a sunny summer day but in a few minutes after my arrival, it started to rain pretty heavy and this almost ruined my plans to make some outfit photos there.  The abbey is part of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage, at first, it was a castle, offered to the benedict monastic order of Lambach. 
I will not bother you with too many details related to Melk Abbey since the internet is full of such information. The most important thing is that you should definitely visit Melk Abbey if you have the chance. It is a nice and quiet place with historical background and a good opportunity for you to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature.

Review-Palette Anti Yellow Color correction Spray

Dupa aproape 1 an de zile de blond, pot spune ca am incercat foarte multe solutii pentru a aduce blondul spre o nuanta de gri. 
Parul meu natural este castaniu inchis si pentru a ajunge la bond trebuie multa experienta si profesionalism din partea hair stilistului si zic asta pentru ca de fiecare data cand ajungeam la coafor sa imi retuseze radacinile mi se spunea..."sa vezi ce gri frumos va iesi"....iar cand terminau treaba spuneau..."aveti pigmentul prea puternic, nu am putut face mai mult fara decolorare" si ieseam din salon in trei culori, gri, galben si portocaliu. 
Asta pana am descoperit-o pe Andreea de la Beauty Concept Boutique care a reusit de fiecare data sa ma incante (aveti postarea AICI).
 Cu toate astea, indiferent de cat de bine iese vopsitul, la cam 2 saptamani dupa, este nevoie urgenta sa aplici un nuantator pentru ca parul tinde sa se faca iar galbui. 
Pentru asta Andreea m-a sfatuit sa folosesc Kallos insa eu mi-am luat si de la alte firme fie din curiozitate, fie de nevoie cum este cazul acestui spray pe care l-am luat cand eram in vizita la Targu Jiu si nu gaseam deloc Kallos. 
Asadar vorbind despre acest Palette Anti-yellow Color correction Spray,  pare un produs ideal. 
In imaginea de pe produs se vede ca inainte parul era galben iar apoi devine gri. 
Asadar a trecut testul de marketing, recipientul e ok, informatiile sunt convingatoare si suficiente sa ma faca sa il cumpar, sa vedem daca mai am aceeasi impresie si dupa testare. 
Mi-a placut ca are un mod usor de aplicare prin pulverizare, spre deosebire de cel de la Kallos unde trebuie sa iti dozezi singura cantitatea. 
Am pulverizat in zonele unde aveam nevoie de un refresh, si dupa cateva insistente parul parca a capatat o nuanta de gri. 
Asadar parea un produs care functioneaza, usor de utilizat si cu rezultate bune. Asta pana a doua zi cand imi simteam parul super incarcat. 
Trebuie sa mentionez ca oricum la fiecare coafat folosesc spuma sau fixativ, plus nuantatorul a iesit o mare harmalaie in par, a doua zi a trebuit sa il spal. 
In concluzie:
Avantaje: Ambalaj ok, aplicare usoara, miros placut, rezultate bune, pret rezonabil (20 de lei)
Dezavantaje: incarca parul si necesita spalare a doua sau a treia zi in functie de nivelul de suportabilitate al fiecareia

After almost one year of blonde, I can say that I tried a lot of solutions to turn the yellow of the blonde into a gray shade. My natural hair is brown and to turn it into blonde requires a lot of experience and knowledge of the hairstylist since each time I was in a salon they promised me that I will get a nice gray shade and after that, they blamed my dark hair for the failure. This happened before I discovered my dear Andreea from Beauty Concept Boutique, who was able each time to make my hair look great again. 
Nevertheless, after 2 weeks I still needed a product to change the shade of the yellow into Gray. Andreea recommended me to use Kallos but out of curiosity, I tried different brands as well. For example, this Palette Anti-yellow Color correction Spray I bought it from Targu Jiu, when I noticed that I forgot Kallos at home.
It seemed to be a good product if you are judging from the package point of view, nice and easy to use. But let's see if after use I will have the same feedback. Indeed after use, the hair got a gray shade but also become stickier and heavy. Maybe the use of mousse that I use each time I arrange my hair in combination with the Anti-yellow spray gave that result. It worked for one night but the second day I had to wash my hair. 
Advantages: nice package, easy to use, pleasant smell, good results, good price (5 Euro)
Disadvantages: has the tendency to make the hair stickier
