Amster’s Restaurant Constanta



EN:
Amster’s restaurant promises to introduce you into the Amsterdam atmosphere, by serving Dutch cuisine specialties. It is more of a café bar where you can also have something to eat. The place is usually noisy and crowded in the evenings, especially during the week-end, because it also has a pub area. I don’t really get the purpose of it, to be honest, because the music is way too loud, so you can neither talk/understand each other properly nor dance, like you would in a club. The thing is that I absolutely love the salads and lemonade served there, so I try to go a little earlier in the evening, when the noise and cigarette smoke are not that disturbing. This time I had the Fulton salad, served together with the gravy from the chicken breast salad (the Fulton salad comes with its own gravy, but I had to switch, because I love this one) and a mint lemonade. I will return in the future and show you more courses from the menu. Enjoy the pictures!
RO:
            Restaurantul Amster’s promite sa va introduca in atmosfera Amsterdamului, prin servirea de specialitati olandeze. Este mai degraba un café bar, in care puteti comanda si ceva de mancare. Localul este, de obicei, zgomotos si aglomerat seara/noaptea, in special in week-end, mai ales ca in interior exista si un pub. Personal, nu prea ii inteleg sensul, deoarece, datorita muzicii puternice, nu este locul potrivit pentru a sta de vorba (cu exceptia situatiei in care sunteti dispusi sa tipati unii la altii) sau a dansa, asa cum ati putea-o face intr-un club. Motivul pentru care frecventez acest local este ca salatele si limonadele sunt absolut extraordinare. Incerc sa merg acolo seara devreme, atunci cand zgomotul si fumul de tigara nu sunt atat de deranjante. De aceasta data, am comandat salata Fulton, in combinatie cu sosul salatei cu piept de pui (salata Fulton se serveste alaturi de un alt sos, insa eu il ador pe acesta, asa ca am facut schimbul) si limonada cu menta. Pe viitor, va voi arata si alte specialitati din meniu. Pana atunci, voi lasa fotografiile sa vorbeasca.

Red, White and Blue



EN:
No, I am not American, nor trying to get patriotic for the 4th of July, in spite of this post’s title. I got this pair of sandals a while ago, but never had the opportunity to wear them. I chose a simple combination, with a matching clutch, jeans, a white top and grey blazer. The perfect work outfit for a casual Friday, easily turned into a dinner date outfit by adding the heels. I hope you like it!

Wearing: Jeans: Stradivarius; Blazer: H&M; Top: LC Waikiki;  Sandals, clutch: local stores.

RO
In ciuda aparentelor titlului, aceasta nu este vreo postare patriotica sau pro-americana, cu ocazia zilei de 4 iulie. Am achizitionat aceasta pereche de sandale acum ceva timp, dar nu am avut ocazia de a la purta. Am ales o combinatie simpla, cu un clutch in aceleasi nuante, jeans, un top alb si un blazer gri. Tinuta perfecta de lucru pentru o zi de vineri mai relaxata, usor de transformat intr-o tinuta adecvata unei cine in oras, prin adaugarea de tocuri. Sper sa va placa!

Jeans: Stradivarius; Blazer: H&M; Top: LC Waikiki;  Sandale, clutch: magazine locale.

Safe House




 EN:
Directed by: Daniel Espinosa
Cast: Denzel Washington, Ryan reynolds, Vera Farmiga, Brendan Gleeson, Sam Shepard, Nora Arnezeder

Plot:
Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds) is a CIA rookie who is manning a safe house in Cape Town, South Africa, when Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington), CIA's most wanted renegade is captured, after a decade on the run, and taken to the safe house. During Frost's interrogation, the safe house is attacked by mercenaries who want Frost. Weston and Frost escape and Weston is given the task to take the rogue agent to another safe house. He soon discovers that someone wants Tobin Frost dead and a strange partnership develops between the two.

My opinion:
I rarely recommend a movie, but this one is a must-see, in my opinion. The breathtaking chases and fights this movie reminded me of the Bourne series. The cast is great -Denzel Washington says it all, plus Ryan Reynolds proves that he can play much more than roles in comedies. Safe House has the key ingredients of a great movie: action, suspense, combat scenes and great acting performances.

RO:
Regizor: Daniel Espinosa
Distributie: Denzel Washington, Ryan reynolds, Vera Farmiga, Brendan Gleeson, Sam Shepard, Nora Arnezeder

Actiune:
Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds) este un recrut CIA, administrator al unui adapost din Cape Town, Adrica de Sud. Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington), fost agent si fugarul cel mai cautat de CIA, este capturat, dupa 10 ani si adus in adapost. In timpul interogarii lui Frost, adapostul este atacat de mercenari, cu intentia de a-l captura pe Frost. Weston si Frost scapa, iar primului ii revine sarcina de a-l duce pe agentul fugar intr-un alt adapost. Curand, Weston descopera ca cineva il vrea pe Tobin Frost mort, iar intre cei doi se dezvolta un soi ciudat de parteneriat.

Parerea mea:
Rar recomand un film, insa acesta chiar merita vazut, in opinia mea. Scenele de urmarire si lupta mi-au amintit de seria Bourne. Distributia este extraordinara: Denzel Washington spune tot, iar Ryan Reynolds demonstreaza ca poate interpreta mult mai mult decat roluri de comedie. Safe House are ingredientele cheie ale unui film bun: actiune, suspans, scene de lupta si interpretare actoriceasca remarcabila.

Simplicity



EN:
One thing I adore about this outfit is it’s simplicity. A light blazer and black thighs. I felt beyond comfortable wearing it, which is a must when you go shopping like I did. This outfit can be easily worn with flats or heels, depending on your needs and the occasion. 

Wearing: Blazer: Franco Ferri; Thighs, Bracelet: Stradivarius; Blouse: Atmosphere; Loafers: Debenhams; Necklace: Oysho

RO:
Un lucru pe care il ador la aceasta tinuta este simplitatea sa. Un blazer subtire si colanti negri. M-am simtit mai mult decat confortabil purtand-o, lucru de apreciat, mai ales ca am mers la cumparaturi. Puteti asorta aceasta tinuta cu balerini sau tocuri, in functie de ocazie si de rezultatul dorit: mai elegant sau mai casual.

Blazer: Franco Ferri; Colanti, bratara: Stradivarius; Bluza: Atmosphere; Balerini: Debenhams; Colier: Oysho

Revalid Nutri-Repair Treatment





EN:
What the producer says:
Revalid Nutri-Repair Treatment is a luxurious product for intensive hair treatment. Enriched with personal-care ingredients (panthenol, allantoin, wheat protein, oat extract and amino-acid derivate), it reinforces and repairs damaged hair, making hair supple, shiny and silky. Regular use reduces friction, breaking and splitting.

Application:
After washing the hair with Revalid shampoo, apply to the most sensitized section of hair. Let it work for about 5 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.
To enhance nourishing action, apply throughout the hair and leave for 10 minutes to achieve a hair-mask effect. Rinse thoroughly. 

My opinion:
I have been using this product for the past month, in order to get an accurate opinion of it. This summer I took advantage of every opportunity to go to the beach, so my hair needed some intensive hydrating treatment after all the sun and salty water. My hair is pretty thin and curly, so it easily gets knots after I wash it. Therefore, I seldom use conditioner or, if I do, I mix it with a hair treatment or mask. After using this product, my hair felt a little softer and easier to comb, but I did not notice any spectacular effects on the long run. I still felt the need to use a hydrating oil before combing it, even though I recently got a new hair cut and don’t have split ends. Another minus is the small quantity: 150 ml, while the average quantity for most hair treatments is 250 ml. It might do better in your case, but personally, I would not repurchase it. I am still in search of the perfect hair treatment. Any suggestions?

Price: Approximately 51 RON
Quantity: 150 ml

RO:
Ce spune producatorul:
Imbunatatit cu ingrediente precum alantoina, panthenolul (provitamina B5), proteine din grau si extract de ovaz care intaresc si refac structura parului deteriorat lasandu-l suplu, matasos si stralucitor. 

Efecte:
  • Hraneste parul, repara structura firului de par degradat
  • Ajuta la refacerea proteinelor naturale ale parului
  • Folosirea regulata ajuta la refacerea varfurilor despicate, reducand ruperea usoara si electrizarea
Mod de utilizare:
Dupa spalare, aplicati pe cea mai sensibila parte a firului de par. Lasati sa actioneze 5 minute. Clatiti bine.
Pentru a amplifica efectele tratamentului, aplicati pe intreaga suprafata a parului si lasati sa actioneze 10 minute. Clatiti bine.

Parerea mea:
Am utilizat acest produs pe parcursul ultimei luni, pentru a-mi face o parere clara despre el. Pe parcursul acestei veri am profitat de orice ocazie pentru a merge la plaja, asa ca parul meu avea nevoie de hidratare intensa dupa ce a fost expus la soare si la apa sarata. Parul meu este destul de subtire si ondulat natural, asa ca se incurca usor dupa spalare. In consecinta, ma rezum rar la balsam, iar atunci cand il utilizez, o fac in amestec cu o masca sau tratament. Dupa utilizarea acestui produs, mi-am simtit parul putin mai moale si usor de pieptanat, insa nu am constatat efecte notabile pe termen lung. Inca simteam nevoia de a pulveriza un ulei hidratant pentru descurcare, desi m-am tuns recent si nu am varfuri despicate. Un alt minus este cantitatea: 150 de ml, tinand cont de faptul ca majoritatea tratamentelor de par au in medie 250 ml. Este posibil sa se dovedeasca mai eficient in cazul vostru, insa, personal, nu l-as recumpara. Inca sunt in cautarea tratamentului de par perfect pentru mine. Aveti vreo sugestie?

Pret: Aproximativ 51 RON
Cantitate: 150 ml
