Valentines Day just passed and I am feeling romantic and anxious to spend my first Spring in Denmark.
I checked my inbox box on DeviantArt and got the notification that someone left me a comment on my stock photo. This beautiful work was done by Maria Ostos and I feel in love with it and decided to feature it here on my blog!
If you guys want the check the original in full size you can just click on the photo and will send you to her page.

I was not a fan of these type of blouses until I started working on cruise ships and the identity crisis hit me.
I was meeting people from around the word that had a perfect image of their culture and identity and I felt that I barely knew anything about my country. We, Romanians, have a lot in common with our country neighbors and in many ways I couldn’t express myself properly about what makes us different.
So I started reading books about our culture and the old religion and I somehow feel in love with what I was discovering.
I was searching for things like embroidered blouses and at that time they were back in fashion. Designers were inspired by the east European traditional blouses and I bought myself one. I was so proud of myself!
The next step was to buy an hand made one and to wear it around the word while working on the cruise ship.
It didn’t take long until I had the courage to embroide my own blouse with the help of the blog Semne Cusute who explained all the symbols used on the authentic Romanian blouse.
For the first time in my life, everything made sense and I felt Romanian.
As I look now, I am proud of myself for all the lessons and blouses that I finished embroidering.
I dream to have a special closet full of blouses made by me from each corner of Romania.
My journey is still at the beginning and I hope you guys can appreciate my work so far!
Ro: Iarna aceasta este dezamagitoare pentru ca zapada a tinut doar trei zile. In acelasi timp ma bucur de faptul ca nu trebuie sa ma imbrac precum un eschimos, cum fac eu de obicei.
En: The winter in Romania is disappointing because the snow lasted just three days. It’s not like I wanted more of it, it’s just that it doesn’t feel like Winter, but Spring. I am happy that I can wear only a sweater, not two like I usually do in Winter. It feels that Winter is avoiding us and that soon Summer will appear.
Ro: In cazul in care va intrebati, haina este de la Stradivarius si fularul de la C&A.
EN: The coat that I am wearing is bought from Stradivarius and the scarf form C&A.
Many of you know that I have a stock account on DevianArt where I post as a stock model. One of the latest works that used my picture is this one! I love it so much that I am sharing it here on my blog!
Avem momente cand ne simtim inspirati, cand am eu impresia ca machiajul ma prinde bine si ca am fata destul de luminata pentru o poza buna!
Radu aranjeaza echipamentul pe covor si incepe sa testeze lumina, obositor dupa o zi sub Soare, alergat pe strazi si visat cu ochii cascati!
Din 300 de cadre poate doar 10 imi plac pe moment, dat fiind si oboseala care se instaleaza pe chipul meu dupa primele poze! Dar dupa ceva vreme pozele imi plac si mai mult, si realizez ca nu stiu sa apreciez momentul, si ma intristez si imi promit ca o sa ma schimb, ca voi stii cum sa il sustin si cum sa pun in aplicare tot ce invat in fiecare zi!
Aceasta poza imi place, am editat un pic culorile, dar imi place ca a reusit ca ma prinda intr-un mod copilaresc, a reusit sa ma prinda la timpul trecut!
