We All Hide Something

Life is a constant game of playing hide and seek with the truth.

The truth is most of the time hard to grasp. We live in a world where lies surround us. We start by lying to ourselves and thinking that to achieve a certain goal something from the outside has to happen in order to succeed. We don’t realize that when success comes most of time it’s because something inside us changed and this solely happens when you change the way you view yourself and you come to the conclusion that happiness it’s your own permission.

So what is happiness and why do we constantly lie to ourselves hopping we can skip whatever it’s on our mind and just take the easy way out? which is pretending…

We put on these masks and we expect ourselves and the rest of the people to just accept it. The worst part is “fake it till you make it”. This can go both ways. In a moment of downfall, thinking positively can go long way but lying to yourself that you are something else, that’s tricky. I believe that for these words to actually work in our favor first and foremost, we have to be honest with ourselves. We have to drop the masks and look the truth in the face. Tough assignment! Because we want all from life – we want success and love and money and freedom and health – we want it all! But what have you done to achieve any of these goals? Why do you think you diserve them? How much have you worked for success? How well are you treating people? How active are you? Are you really doing everything you can from your side to diserve all of these?

Honesty and Investment.

We can’t be constantly honest with ourselves because we then realize how we are not and will never be flawless, that we may hit the downfall, that we make mistakes, that we are not perfect. But there are those moments of pure honesty that wake us up and we come to realize that the world doesn’t own us anything. So, we are back in the anxiety loop. And that’s ok because we are in a process of understanding ourselves, not to fix us.

Invest. No one will do the work for you. If you take the elevator instead of the stairs, you risk getting there before you are ready. I believe there is a time for everything. There is a time for making mistakes and learning from them, a time when you have to take success by the hand and there is a time to meditate. Every period has its investment.

How many of us have been told over and over again, maybe in subtle ways, that there is a ceiling you are capable of, instead of realizing that you can knock down that ceiling to come to the conclusion that there is a whole world above it?

 

 

 

 

Bonilash

An actual drugstore product that works wonders.

I have always had thin and blondish eyebrows. Always wanted them to be thicker but never went for any of the chemical drawing or tattoo. I am the type of person who likes the more natural aspect. I tried a lot of oils but nothing ever worked, until I tried Bonilash. It actually works! My eyebrows are now not just thicker, but they are full as well. And I am as happy as I can be! 

 

Eyebrows are an important part of the face and having the right ones will accentuate your beauty, but any mistake made to them and you are done! Your whole face just changes and you loose your beauty. So with a proper care, you can look great and all natural. And Bonilash did that!

 

It is one drugstore product I genuinely advice you to use it. Enjoy!

Life As We Know It

Change is a funny thing…and not everyone can do it. Things aren’t what they used to be. Your whole world is transformed. You realized the ground beneath you is shifted. Now things are uncertain and there is no turning back. The world around you is different, close to unrecognizable and there is nothing you can do it about it. The future is stuck in front of you. And then something happens and that’s it … life as you know it will never be the same.

People around you change and some relationships stay and some go, even if we want to or not. It is not the best feeling, if you ask me. Throughout this life we get in contact with people that we click, we are on the same page, it is a joy to have them around. But they don’t stay. And there is this strange feeling in your stomach, like something is missing. But we get used to it and we accept it and we move one. With every relationship, of any kind, when is done, we leave a part of us behind, the part that belonged to it. So we through time losing and gaining. “Maybe that’s the way it should be”. Or maybe not.

This destiny we all have and that everyone says we should trust and follow is quite tricky and confusing at times. We have to let go of things or people we don’t want to and we have to believe this high energy that all is for our own good. Trust the the process. Trust the path. A lot of trusting going on here. Somewhere it will go for sure. I am just curious where.

5 Elements

Who doesn’t like a good night out spent with their friends in a place that has great food and greater atmosphere? We are all looking now not just for a place where we can eat good food but one that offers an entire experience, food wise and design and atmosphere wise.

The first time I experienced real and good Chinese food was in New York City and since then I have expected for a similar place to open up in Bucharest. Chinese food is so much more than the regular fast-food we all see at the corner of every street or in any mall. And 5 Elemente is all about bringing us this experience.

And you know, I have always trusted TripAdvisor so with an almost 4.5-star, I am pretty sure our expectations will match the real deal.

Gymboland, Summer Savior

Summer is coming upon us pretty strong. With temperatures over 40 degrees, it is not safe for ourselves to be outside, rather on our children. But with all this, they still need an environment where they can have fun and interact with other kids and create connections and, especially learn. So, here we are back at Gymboland

With tons of opportunities to learn and have fun, Gymboland is the perfect combination for kids, with many workshops and activities meant to cultivate their passions, to discover new talents, and develop creativity, the capacity of concentration and attention, as well as their insight.

 


Gymboland este alegerea tuturor copiilor care stiu ce vor de la o vacanta – distractie pe cinste si joaca fara limite. Cum canicula da peste cap solutiile de joaca si impune limite in timpul petrecut in aer liber,
parintii au o alternativa pe cinste in Gymboland si sunt fericiti ca prichindeii lor au parte de un loc de
joaca cool, interactiv unde voia buna se imbina armonios cu educatia si dezvoltarea.
Pe oaza de divertisment de pe taramul Gymboland, copiii se pot bucura in ultimele doua luni de vara, de
concursuri de dans, de activitati de cantat si de exercitii de indemanare care mai de care mai atractive. Isi pot pune creativitatea la incercare creand cele mai simpatice vederi sau rame foto si isi pot transforma eroii preferati din povesti in figurine din plastilina. Micutii cu manute dibace se pot distra copios confectionand fluturasi 3D, ornand borcanele sau modeland palmute din lut.
Nu au uitat nici de mult-indragitele jocuri clasice ale copilariei. Copiii sunt ajutati sa isi consume energia
si sa isi dezvolte musculatura si corpul jucand ”Ratele si vanatorii” sau bowling in cadrul atelierelor
noastre de vara.
Aceste distractii pe cinste, care fac vacanta de vara mai frumoasa fiecarui copil aduc un plus important in
dezvoltarea lor oferindu-le posibilitatea de a-si exersa si dezvolta coordonarea mana-ochi, abilitatile cognitive, perspicacitatea si imaginatia.
Indiferent ca picteaza, creeaza decoratiuni, confectioneaza hainute, se indeletniceste cu tainele origami
sau canta ori danseaza, un lucru este cert: nu este niciodata nici singur si nici plictisit!

Oversized nature

We love plants and we love them big and imposing.

An interior can change its aspect big times when we add a considerable large pot with an even bigger plant. Nature not just brings a fresh air to your interior but also a feeling of relaxing and comfort. So if you have the space for it, we invite you to add them in your interior and let us know the impact they create. We assure you that you will love it and soon you will want to add more.

Just take a look at this spaces and tell us they are not beautiful?!

There are times when words don’t come as easy but you get lucky and design (of any kind) saves the day, or at least it saved mine few days ago.
