Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

It gives me a great sense of accomplishment to present this enlightened Royal Endeavors episode, marked by the Monumentalist guided tour of my controversial yet distinguished hometown, Craiova, an exclusive blog post lovingly dedicated to my grandfather, Mugur Iordache, who had recently and graciously stepped into the eternal dimension.

He was a brilliant mathematician and a highly-reputed professor, with a remarkable career which spaned over decades of proudly serving his community by educating many generations of young minds to master the complexity and art of mathematics.

He lead a very respectful, organized life, beat collon cancer for good over thirteen years ago with much pride and courage and never stopped challenging his strength to walk for miles every day in the park until his last one, leading everyone by the power of his example of never giving up.

He was also my greatest Social Media admirer, always dropping encouraging comments while showing off my pics to my grandmother, therefore I strongly feel there is no better ocassion to pay homage to his loving memory than to dedicate the exclusive Monumentalist Craiova fabulous episode to him.

Firstly because there are many misconceptions about my home town, mostly based on violent incidents and bad news in the media, which denigrate its noble and rich intellectual history and elegant architectural legacy. Unfortunately, ordinary people who feed on such news may have no idea about the important landmarks the 6th largest city of Romania prides itself with.

There are countless historical and cultural sites in Craiova that can keep the traveler intrigued therefore my goal is to surprise my audience and lastingly impress it with some of the most somptuous edifices worthy of its time and attention, landmarks which I had the absolute pleasure of visiting during the Monumentalist Tour.

This eclectic journey would not have been possible without the initiative of AIO living and the brilliant guidance of Alexandru Buzatu, my former high school colleague, brilliant architect and devoted guide and of course, the Monumentalist movement.

Let’s now proceed with the discovery of the wonderful Craiova city.

“In Europe the rich are refined enough to act as if they’re not wealthy. That is how civilized people behave. If you ask me, being cultured and civilized is not about everyone being free and equal; it’s about everyone being refined enough to act as if they were. Then no one has to feel guilty.”
– Orhan Pamu

Hello, QTs!!! 🦋🦋🦋

Long time, no see – this time I am serious. I’ve been keeping this shooting on the down low for a while now, with mic drops on my Instagram account @princessapetra just to keep you guys locked.
This time I am doing it – str8 balling, shot calling – sharing it to the world on the 4th of July, the Independence Day, celebration which perfectly matches my outfit and star boots. I’m so dressed for The Ocassion.
Sequins all over, Shining from afar like a Shooting Star, wrapped up in my (very) basic (don’t question it!) Spring Icon The Weeknd by H&M jumper (which I call “If You Ain’t XO Then You Gotta Go” which is basically my favorite headline right now), which I happen to wear ALL THE TIME.
You already know. Thank God it’s summer though!
After the massive rain that hit Bucharest some days ago, I feel released to share myself fully dressed again lol. 🐅🐅🐅
