I've had a busy Sunday this week. I went out with the family, later I had a shoot with a music band and then my cousin was around that area and she said she was at the cinema and invited me too. I literally bought a movie ticket just when the movie was scheduled to begin but we all know those long minutes before it actually starts! So we saw Bad Mom and then we payed Zara a visit and I bought some things I really like! I apparently like this time to shop since there are still so so many sales but clothes are not all over the place and there aren't so many people in the store! So score for me! I have in plan to shoot one of the dresses that I bought today- tomorrow and maybe also the day after tomorrow since on Wednesday I'll take a vacation for a few days and I'll be near the water for these last remaining August days. Danube here I come! Nothing fancy just old friends and family.
So that's about it! Talk to you soon! S.
Well, when you have your pair of Levi's shorts in front of you I believe it's kind of mandatory to see how you would style your own DOUBLE DENIM LOOK. I'm sure it's nothing new to many of you but after I've had a hard last few days I reached for my Levi's to wear to work and I would not have shared this outfit/picture but I find that the quote speaks to me so so much and at the end of the day I was more of a smiling person. So here's to you. A quote to remember and totally live by (I hate this expression haha but come on this quote is something special)!
As a friend of mine and also model for my shoots said to me: Take a picture and you'll forget everything about your sadness. And as superficial as it sound. It's kind of the best medicine haha! Just try it and mock it after! This day was another proof to her saying. There's something about photography! It can heal you... But as I write this I remember that I also enjoy taking self-portraits exactly for that purpose. It's like the 10 second I have to pose while the camera is on self-timer makes a great part of my sorrow fade away. I have it in the memory as a picture. It's like a bad dream. You remember it, you can recall it, you can draw it but it's not that present anymore.

Last spring I shot these but could not find the right color grading for them. It's my current struggle right now for all of my photos. Both photos of me and made by me. But then I though that black and white may be the right fit for them. Anyways, the yellow roses remained from a shoot I did and then I turned them into a flower crown which is something I previously had in mind for the shoot but ended up shooting some head pieces instead and it would have been too much.
Wearing: Roxi's Fine Cut bomber jacket (link here), Stradivarius ripped jeans, New Yorker t-shirt, Converse chucks.
For that day- the outfit was simply planned around my new sandals. And it was a no-brainer that it would look super good with my white jeans. I feel like white pants bring more light to your appearance. I like that so much!
It looks like a boring outfit but because I changed the way I usually pose and the position- it just brings something new into the equation. Also, my dear friend and work colleague started taking my pics and I must say that for some reason I am so much more confident and relaxed when she shoots my looks. I mostly think it's because she's such an outgoing person and I love that about her and it makes me act the same way. I'm excited for this new jurney with her!
All Zara everything except the shoes which are from Benvenuti.
Before the event, early in the morning I went and shot the make-up sessions at Hair Studio by Jabri Elena. Anca Molnar and her team took care of the staff appearance and I was there to capture it. For some reason I have a very hard time falling asleep ( like the hardest time in my life) and I didn't manage to get any sleep that night because of it. But I slept in the afternoon for a couple of hours before the event.
Gals in heels.
And some pictures from the event itself. I'm here among my girls: singer Alexandra Mitroi, blogger Cristina Maritescu, and Andreea from Magic Accessories. As you can see I was in good company! I also met a lot of new people and had a blast at Epic Vara. I felt right at home.
This is a different type of post than my usual. I'm getting out of my comfort zone more and more and as frequently as can be. So hit me with your impression on this post so that I can spice up things in here!
This is part one of my photo diary from Rome. I just noticed that there are a lot of photos from behind. I noticed that when I posed but here I've put them altogether. I had something to edit and also these pictures and time passed so fast and now it's 4am and tomorrow I have a photography gig that I'm excited about! I will surely snap a few pictures of my outfit or of my day but if now, I will post something on Instagram instead so follow along! @simonanutu_
Can't wait to accomplish all the things I put my mind to.
Today, after a few days indoors I went out and bought myself an Urban Decay Naked Palette from Sephora. I spent the weekend literally glued into the screen watching Jaclyn Hill's make-up videos. She's so good and I like her personality. Now I am super inspired and I'm into experimenting with make-up everyday more and more.
Anyways, I will share some more photos from my time in Rome. I hope you like them. I usually snap pictures with my phone but also have my camera with me. Always.
