Good day, ladies!

I hope you’ll have a peaceful weekend with your loved ones and a chill holiday. Now that I got formalities out of the way, let’s dive in!

So, I’ve got my hands on a few pictures from the TEDxAlbaIulia event. What a memorable conference to speak at! Everybody was SO friendly and open and positive… You gave me such amazingly good vibes! inima-albastru

Some of you have been asking me whether or not we had time to do some sight seeing in Alba Iulia. I hate to disappoint you, but sadly, not quite. Claudiu, Emil and I were busy shooting for the revamped Morodan Shop. So we left Bucharest on Tuesday, headed straight to Cluj, and on Friday we were on our way to Alba Iulia. My speech was scheduled to take place the next morning.

I think by now, you already know how speaking briefly and not getting sidetracked is soooo not my strongsuit. So Saturday I listened to meditation music all day while clocking my speech on a timer.

The topic this year was Challenging Tomorrow

Needless to say, it’s a topic that’s right up my alley. It was the perfect opportunity for me to speak about how many of us, the girls that started blogging way back when, found our own voices along the way. We stopped being runway-model-wannabes and instead became conversationalists and developed methods of business. Take a note, ladies, and don’t forget: vanity without a cause might feel great but it is not forever.

And if we’re talking about vanity and bloggers, we’re talking about Photoshop , obviously. My whole speech was built around this topic.

What we do is entertainment. And there is a little bit of illusion involved there, like in any field related to show biz. Don’t kid yourselves ladies. Not even those “no makeup/no filter” campaigns are illusion-free. Because a talented photographer, good lighting, and a no-makeup look applied by a professional makeup artist is still an illusion in my books.

So what I’m trying to get to, is this: when you look at us, accept the fact that our image might be altered. But please, pay more attention to what we say and do. Because while our skin can be brightened, eyes enlarged, waists liquified with the aid of apps, our soul and characters cannot. And I doubt there’ll be an app for that in the near or even far future.

Thank you to the TEDx team for allowing me to speak in the name of a whole generation. inima-albastru
