What I Ate Today, and a Little Update

Hello my dear readers!

Greetings from Denmark! At the beginning of August my boyfriend and I packed our stuff, dumped it all in the car and drove apx. 2000 km all the way to Odense, Denmark! Since that moment, our days have been hectic and our minds full of to do lists.

On the 1st September I started Uni, for which I am both nervous and excited.

And I also got my first job ever here.

This Sunday however, I finally had a relaxing day all to myself and I made sure I take full advantage of it.

I started out the day with a nice cup of milk and biscuits – such a delight!

Then I organised the room a bit as I wanted a nice and clean space where I can fully relax, took a hot shower and listened to music to which I danced around awkwardly. It’s a good thing nobody saw me (or so I hope!).

Lunch was… To die for! My bf’s brother went grocery shopping in the morning and picked up a lot of goodies, most of which were also on sale. So, we quickly whipped up a  yum burger and crispy fries and dug in!

One thing I really wanted to do today was to bake a little cake, and I was craving my mom’s apple cake so bad that I had to make it myself. I don’t mean to brag, but it turned out pretty good!

The neighbourhood where we live is on the outskirts of the city, surrounded by nature, and so in the afternoon I took a walk, breathed in the clean and crisp air, and marveled at the beauty of it all. I can’t wait to see what this place looks like in winter!

 

The rest of the day was mostly spent laying in bed, watching YouTube videos and reading blog posts of course! This was also the day I rediscovered Marzia (aka CutiePieMarzia). Her videos are perfection!

The evening ended with a delicious pita bread with garlic and tomato & veggies sauce, plus the comforting apple cake for dessert.

It’s been a few weeks since I last posted anything and I have to say… I’ve missed blogging so much! And I’ve definitely missed chatting to you in the comments 💔 For now, I still can’t promise weekly blog posts, as the moving and adjusting process is taking a pretty long time. However, I hope you’re all doing very well, I hope you’ve had a great Sunday, and I’ll see you soon!

Have a lovely start of the week,

Bia

My answers

1. What is your middle name?

3. What do you admire most in other people?

I usually try to find inspiration in anyone and anything. The things that I admire in others is their strength to face difficulties, their charm, creativity and kindness.

4. Are you someone who is always late or always early?

I used to be an extremely punctual kid (I would arrive at school half an hour before the classes even started), but gradually that changed. Nowadays I’m always in a hurry to do something or to get somewhere. Sometimes I make it on time… and sometimes i don’t :(.

5. What post has been your favorite to make?

As much as I love putting outfits together and posing for the camera, I have to say that my absolute favorite post to make was the A ONE-DAY TRIP TO SIGHISOARA, ROMANIA one. Travelling is such a dream come true and every time I get the chance to discover a new place, I take full advantage of it.

6. Why did you start blogging?

Ever since I was little I liked to write and as soon as I found out you could have a blog, I wanted to do it. I went through a lot of trials and errors but now I am determined to make it work. The main reason why I love blogging is because I get to connect with wonderful people all over the world, I can speak openly about whatever’s on my mind, and I get to channel my creativity into something that will be there forever for me to look back on. That’s why I started  blogging :).

7. What is your best childhood memory?

One of the things I loved the most when I was little was spending the Summer vacation at my aunt’s place in Brasov. My cousin and I would have ice cream every day, we would play around in the garden, go on walks in the city, and celebrate our birthdays together. ❤

8. Are you an early bird or a night owl?

Since I was a kid I loved staying up late and watching movies or tv series (or youtube) and that habit continued all throughout my adolescence too. Now that I finally realized how important sleep is and how beneficial it is to wake up early, I have been struggling to change my habit. I’m still in my transition phase, but I aim at becoming a very early bird.

9. What is your favorite word?

I consider doggy and Christmas my favorite words because there can’t be and instance when someone mentions one of those two words and my face doesn’t light up. For me, they represent happiness.

10. If you could talk to anyone in history, who would you choose?

This is a tough one… I could pick A. Hitler and ask him what in the world was he thinking, that could be interesting. But I want to choose Audrey Hepburn. She’s my inspiration when it comes to fashion, style, elegance, but mostly so when it comes to following my dreams, spreading kindness and being the best me I can be.

11. What is your favorite thing about yourself?

The thing that I like most about myself is the fact that I am a curious person. I like to discover things and places, and to constantly learn something new.  But that also means that a lot of times I’m quite nosy. Oops!
