Hi, my name is Andreea and I want to become your best friend in style! And today I thought we could get to know each other better. Sometimes I feel like I'm not as close to you as I'd like. The blog post is not the same as a video where you can notice the gestures and inflections in a person's voice. So today I'm sharing with you guys 10 things you (probably) didn't know about me:
1. I graduated from the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Bucharest
I don't seem to be like a regular mathematician, do I? That's because I'm not! I love Mathematics, I would solve problems at any time of the day and I would always decipher a code, but I'm not the prototype of the usual mathematician who lives his life focused on this subject. I also have a master's degree in Algebra, Geometry, and Cryptography.
2. budistyle.com it's not my first blog
In 2012, I launched my first fashion blog where I used to show celebrity outfits for inspiration and comment on their looks. Also, I've used to share the latest trends, tips on how to dress for different events and I've created polls, too. Unfortunately, the faculty I attended became harder day by day and I didn't have the time to upload posts on it anymore. Or maybe I wasn't fully prepared to be the fashion blogger I wanted to be.
3. I cook in my spare time
I love to cook. And I love to eat tasty food. I love cooking comfort food: from seafood pasta to stuffed cabbage rolls. So, when I'm not blogging or doing other activities, I can be found in the kitchen cooking something tasty. By the way, sometimes you can see what I'm cooking on my Instagram account, in the "Stories" section.
4. The photos on the blog are taken by my brother and my husband
Most of the photos on the blog are taken by my younger brother, Andrei, but sometimes Darius takes photos of me, too. They are both wonderful souls and I wanna thank them for their kindness and for tolerating me when I become a drama queen.
5. When it comes to photos…
I edit my blog photos in Photoshop and Lightroom. I use the first program to resize images or remove different things from a photo (for example, a trash can). I use the second one to adjust the brightness, contrast and vibrancy of a photo. And I love the fact that I can create my own present with just a few mouse movements. Yas!
6. I'm only 5 feet tall
I look taller in the photos because the two photographers take photos of me from a low angle or from a wide angle. And because I learned how to dress to look taller. You can read more about this topic here.
7. I was born in Craiova
My hometown is Craiova, a beautiful city located in southern Romania, Europe. For the first 20 years of my life, I lived there, then I moved to Bucharest to apply to the Faculty of Mathematics.
8. I have never traveled by plane over the ocean
Because I have a partial fear of flying. I mean, if I have another option, I say "Lord, thank you!" and I happily use it. If not, I get on the plane and sit on the chair as if the plane would crash if I would move around. However, if in the future I get the opportunity to go abroad, I will probably fly over the ocean. But I don't promise.
9. I have been writing since I was 14 years old
I liked to write since I was a kid - I was the happiest when I was assigned to write an essay in class or at home. Writing has a therapeutic effect on me - it calms me down and brings me closer to who I am. At 14, I wrote the first novel by hand, and at 15, I typed my second novel on the computer.
10. I don't have a favorite color
Surprise! Most of my close friends believed that pink is my favorite color. That was the case until now. Believe me! After reading Karen Haller's "The Little Book of Color", I realized that I like almost all colors, except the earthy brown (like I would gladly remove it from my life and I could live well without it), and I'm attracted to dusty pink, red and teal.
