Must have: Floral print shoes

I have a feeling about what will be in style this year: floral prints!
If you want to be en vogue in 2012, you must have the following shoes!!!
You can buy them in Deichmann stores at a very good price: 23 EUR / 31 USD / 99 RON. 

If you have brought the shoes already,  you must buy some accessories like:

Meaghan watch from Avon:


Floral print scarf from Deichmann:

Must smell: Avon Perceive Dew

I just got my new Avon Eau de Toilette: Perceive Dew. 
It comes in a nice light lilac package. Inside you will find a strange and unique shaped bottle.

Top notes: lemon, watermelon, freesia
Middle notes: honeysuckle, aquatic notes, apricot
Base notes: amber, musk, sandalwood

All together these give a nice citric-marina perfume.

Must do: Pilates

Last week I was desperately trying to fit some size 38 (size M) pants...without any success. That was the moment I decided that my sedentary lifestyle has to change! Although I cannot change it drastically (because of my work) I started to look after some easy and efficient exercises. This is how I discovered the Pilates Method.

Pilates exercises were first developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900's. The exercises which were once meant to rehabilitate bedridden victims became one of today's most enjoyed workouts. The most common for Pilates exercises are the one executed on the floor (on a mat).

I find it a great advantage of this method that you won't sweat like a horse while jumping around in the gym and have no power to take a shower after the workout. Another advantage is that during the exercises you will lie on your back, relaxing the spine, isolating the muscles you work on.

As a beginner I exercise for 20 minutes and stretch for 10 minutes at the end.
Some of the exercises I chose are the following:

  • always start with The Hundreds (I prefer the stretched legs version)
  • Roll Up
  • Single Leg Circle
  • Single Leg Stretch
  • Double Leg Stretch
  • Single Straight Leg
  • Criss-Cross
  • The Saw 
  • The Seal
  • Rolling Like a Ball
  • Side kick series
  • Spine Stretch Forward

Must have: Green shoes

I have just found this piece of jewellery and I think I am in love!

This shoes come in 5 colors (green, light brown, bright blue, pink and black).
I could imagine myself wearing the pink one too.

Unfortunately in Romania I could find only the light brown version (a little boring for my taste). As I asked for the green one, the employee looked at me as if I were asking for chocolate pudding!!!
