Crisis is the Best Coach #5

Hello darlings,

Just in case you’ve missed me, I am constantly at home, with intermitent pauses of going out to take Joy around for a short walk in the neighbourhood.

The truth is I have been quite busy lately, taking online courses and working on the Interior Design Advanced Course, which is slightly more demanding than I expected. Not the styling itself or finding real products to fit my vision, but the dimensions and calculations are not my cup of tea.
I could certainly get better at them, no doubt, but it will take some time to furbish my skills and I am not sure I would like to invest it in this particular aim towards excellence. Perhaps real practice would be more appropiate in this case and I have big plans for my space(s) of living.
Let’s say I wish to make every corner of my tiny Bucharest studio instagrammable so that’s quite a complex mission, I assume.

The best thing about the course is that I work with experienced trainers and colleagues who are willing to guide me and provide their expertise, which is comforting and delightful.
I also cliqued with some of them immediately which has rarely happened to me lately. It’s a good sign I am getting back to that community feeling, which I missed out because of my former burn out. I am very glad that challenge is finally over.

I also seem to lack interest in taking new pics of myself, expecially selfies, just to keep up to virtual norms of social exposure.
What can I say – you must clearly take my word my beauty has remained unaltered since the isolation/quarantine has begun.
Now I even have more time to put on face masks and body creams, while I use no coverage/foundation/concealer.
It’s a win-win situation – I am satisfied with having my skin taking a relaxing break from make up and grateful I finally found a good reason not to touch it 🙂

I also can’t say I miss my old life since for the past year I’ve been successful at keeping myself isolated while I got my shxt together, although I do feel a new sense of purpose arising and a new perspective of life emerging.
I am glad it is applicable to everyone, even if this change is initiated “the hard way” – I was feeling quite lonely and out of tune because everyone was moving with the speed of light, while I was making efforts to stay still and listen to myself.
I feel an alignment taking place.

What we all can do during this time is a little visualization exercise called Life Vision, which is simple yet deeply positive and empowering. We can start by collecting a series of pics, quotes, words, anything that can relate to the future desire for ourselves once the quarantine is over. They can be related to food, workout, vacations, moods – anything that sparks joy and brings relief.
I use this as a valuable coaching tool, which is also fun and easy if you have a Pinterest account, Power Point and time to do a little matching game.
It’s a brilliant practice to keep the mind fit and the Law of Attraction working, moreover since we are not on the run anymore – now we can use the Law of Allowance for Manifestation to reach us.

Make a wish! xoxo

“Persistence. Perfection. Patience. Power. Prioritize your passion. It keeps you sane.”
– Criss Jami

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am pleased to introduce the first photo shooting of 2020 highlightening the fabulous collaboration with my favorite photographer, Volker Vornehm, after an year (+) absence from the attention of social media.
This enlightening edition was brilliantly hosted by one of the most surprising interior decor vintage shops in Bucharest, Circa 1703-3071, a fabulous treasure hunt hidden in the proximity of Club Fabrica, where you can both admire and purchase a bold collection of peculiar ceramics and one-of-a-kind glass chandeliers and lamps, which can easily become the central piece and the big IT in your ambIenT.
It won’t hurt if you try to cast an eye around in this majestic boutique and meet & greet the lamp master – Laura Paraschiv, who was a flawless host and very sweet!

I must admit I stepped into 2020 with a big hit, as I graced Volker’s invitation to make the first working Monday of the year a memorable win, even though doing what I love meant waking up at 4 in the morning to catch the train to B City for this shooting only. After a three hours train ride, two cups of coffee and a rise of my self-esteem, I was sure I can make a blast of what I’ve got, in spite of little sleep and only two days of wardrobe brainstorming.
I might have borrowed 3/4 of my outfit from Queen Mum because style runs in the family – the skirt, the shawl and the belt do not pertain to me, but with a great chance of becoming so, if I insist.

Have the Courage to be Disliked

“Leaders lead in face of discomfort, leaders lead in face of disagreement, leaders lead in face of breakdown.
It’s not a convenient job, it’s a job of conviction and service.”

– Lisa Nichols

My beloved audience,

Absorbed by the delicate remembrance of royal endeavors, bathing in the afterglow of my impressions, I have disregarded the trials and tribulations of my evolution, which deserves a warm and honest praise, without a shadow of complaint – this is a future forward fashion throwback to the hype of the former days,  as my signature never goes out of style and time is just man made.

I have decided to celebrate my personal development, professional accomplishments and wellbeing through this distictive photoshooting with the world famous photographer Cornel Lazia, an artist devoted to surprise the fierceful elegance of my presence behind a healthy dosis of multi-layered animal prints.
The truth is it takes courage to unfold a character, as well as a public dosis of stamina and I have come a long way not to step into the power of my greater purpose, to which the whole Universe resonates.

I have started blogging three years ago, with three eyes on my mind to glow, since public displays of investment are quite low and shallow. My mission has always been to inspire a generous wave of personal growth, as each stepping stone we face births the context in which we become more. Some of you know I have always been more – way too much to handle when the less is more. I can’t even complain because fortune favors the bold and my voice rings the bells into the depth of your souls. That’s a gift only I can endure.

This is the story of how I grow, glow and flow.

Royal Endeavors – Istanbul – The Ultimate Shopping Guide

Processed with VSCO with c8 preset

“If one had but a single glance to give the world, one should gaze on Istanbul.”
– Alphonse de Lamartine

My esteemed audience,

I am thrilled to welcome you to the final part of the discovery journey delving deep into the fullfiled wishes of the mesmerizing city of Istanbul – I promise this enchanting post to be a delight for the sight and food for your souls. Given my latest tendency to sprinkle wits and bites of conscious shopping over my Royal Endeavors events, while still promoting chic means of sustainability one can easily afford, I made the commitment to deliver an exclusive www. episode on the Ultimate Guide of Shopping, dedicated to the art lovers and thrill seekers willing to expand their horizons and beautify their homes.

In a world struggling to overcome the last bursts of consumerism shoved down our throats through aggressive media and misinformation, the art of making conscious choices becomes a gift, a blessing and a purpose.
I honor the difference of opinions and perspectives but that doesn’t have to lead to a lack of personality while emphasising a casual taste just to fit into a predefined mould, therefore I am willing to promote handicrafts which will definitely capture everyone’s attention, rich in aspects regarding tradition and symbolism.

I believe an elegant manner to support the countries we are visiting is to invest in their local services and manufacturing, as means to keep traditional art alive and solid. I kindly advise you not to settle for the Chinese cheaper souvenirs, when you can make memories count with handcrafted ceramics and luxurious textiles.

Every choice matters and traveling certainly opens the universe of self-awareness, deepening senses, refining tastes and strengthening cultural awareness and diversity, thus contributing to a country’s sense of sustainability.

Once you witness the beauty of Turkey in all its glory, it will be hard to leave the sweet memories behind without purchasing some Turkish souvenirs to spark conversations and act as a magical portal that is reminiscent of the wonders you had experienced.
Please remember everything is negotiable to an extend of -50%, unless clearly specified otherwise.

Royal Endeavors – Sights and Delights: The Flavors of Istanbul

Processed with VSCO with e6 preset
“Istanbul, a universal beauty where poet and archeologist, diplomat and merchant, princess and sailor, northerner and westerner screams with same admiration. The whole world thinks that this city is the most beautiful place on earth.”

– Edmondo De Amicis

Ladies and gentlemen,

One thing is certain – never have I delivered so many Royal Endeavors signature episodes than in the past year, which, on an individual level, proves my increasing level of self-awareness and demonstrates an unshakable dedication to provide generous knowledge and solid inspiration for my beloved audience.
That is because Royal Endeavors is a lifestyle concept, a unique form of giving what has been taken with an extra touch of artistry, a refined channel to convey insights for impact and subconsciously convert the non-believers to a superior form of being one with their surrounding beauty, a belief that seeks to powerfully support and gently transform the collective perspective on the Art of Living in alignment with Honor, Purpose and Authenticity.

I warmly invite you to walk closely during this fabulous journey, which will be rather short, as I am planning to provide my precious insights for The Ultimate Shopping Guide in Istanbul separately. Please take into account it was probably my third time visiting this breathtaking city, therefore some of its main attractions which I strongly advise you to consider on your first time will not be covered at this time. For example, Sultan Ahmed Mosque, Dolmabahçe Palace, Topkapi Palace, Galata Tower, Süleymaniye Mosque, Basilica Cistern and Maiden’s Tower are an absolute must, although I haven’t included them in the tales of this 6 days tour. Nevertheless, I promise to delight you with the majestic Hagia Sophia, all three Bazaars, a Bosphorus Cruise sprinkled with visual memories, a glimpse of the somptuos Beylerbeyi Palace and the incredible Intangible World Heritage Dervish Experience at Hodjapasha Theatre.

Let’s indulge together in the immense greatness of this unforgettable city, which never ceases to fascinate millions of tourists every year with its majestic architecture and luxurious experiences. One visit is never enough to taste its mystical flavors and enjoy the fabulous sightseeing therefore you can always find another reason to wander around its vibrant streets and connect to the energy of its intense living.

“To the one in the skies, this city must look like a scintillating pattern of speckled glows in all directions, like a firecracker going off amid thick darkness. Right now the urban pattern glowing here is in hues of orange, ginger, and ochre. It is a configuration of sparkles, each dot a light lit by someone awake at this hour. From where the Celestial Gaze is situated, from that high above, all these sporadically lit bulbs must seem in perfect harmony, constantly flickering, as if coding a cryptic message to God.”

Royal Endeavors – Horezu Legacy

Processed with VSCO with c7 preset

“My new deliberate and slower pace has created a higher quality in my experiences.”
– Lisa J. Shultz

Ladies and gentlemen,

Following the resounding success of the previous Royal Endevors exclusive episode, dedicated to the marvelous experience La Conac by AIO Living, comes this fabulous edition devoted to my recent family adventure to Horezu and its beautiful surroundings, fully charged with historic symbolism and a deep sense of authenticity. The historical landmarks to be revealed mark the outstanding representation of our national culture, proudly facing the test of time for centuries, while promoting strong values and embracing the solemn rhythm of tranquility and spiritual communion.

In this Royal Endevors episode, I will proceed to magically enchant you with the breathtaking view of Museum Complex of Maldaresti, the splendid interiors of Horezu Monastery, exclusively captured due to a striking synchronicity, all followed by fortune tales of the lovely dinner we had at Pastravaria Romani, a superb location offering a single dish – menu of the day – including the one of a kind experience of chosing your own fish out of a pond in order for it to be freshly cooked.

“Escape from complicated life! Take refuge in simple life! You will find three treasures there: Healthy body, peaceful mind and a life away from ambitious fools!”

“Just as writing can become calligraphy when it’s creatively, skillfully, and consciously performed, so can all other activities become art. In this case, we are reflecting upon life itself as an artistic statement—the art of living.”
H.E. Davey

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

After the successful Monumentalist Tour in Craiova, which created the premises of gaining deep insight and uncensored access to some of the most astonishing historical landmarks of my hometown – imposing buildings proudly standing the test of time – followed a surprise afterparty, a delightful occasion to thrill and chill in an emblematic mansion not far from my home city, opened to endless possibilities of cultural enrichment and creative leisure, fit for anything the mind can imagine.

The mansion, untouched by cold-hearted modernization but in tune with a comforting touch of essential utility, brilliantly complements the solitary area of an eclectic village in terms of cultural awareness and diversity, leaving just enough space to delight its guests with the art of richly living in a joyous intimacy.

AIO living had raised the bar for a high quality sensorial experience, by channeling its outstanding decorative instincts into creating a perfect getaway for traveling back in time, where the distinguished means of entertainment fed the soul with courageous displays of connaissance in terms of culinary delights and creative pursuits, with the purpose of delighting the guests and enchanting the spirits.

“On the canvas of life,with the brushes of goodness, love and passion, paint your randomness, dynamism & desire to show your “art of living” to the world.”
