The best host award goes to.. ELLE Romania! ELLE Mag did it again! Such a huge honor again to be a part of the best crowd at ELLE Blogging Awards.
The frst edition of ELLE Blogging Awards is a huge event dedicated to the online community, where we celebrate romanian projects, blogs and vlogs.
This time, the iconic Elle Magazine and the hard working team surprised us with a relaxing garden party, in a dreamy location and an amazing party set-up with cool twists and details. Garden lights, flowers everywhere and their pure scent in the air, as well as the smell of nature and the freshly-cut grass. Such a pure bliss. I could just breathe it all in and enjoy every second – when you think it was a garden party and there was no need to wear high heels, while having your feet tickled by the grass !! Double joy. Triple joy. So we spent the night sipping drinks (I kinda want some more prosecco now that I think about it, but we’re not talking about that right now) and chatting with some really inspiring people that I wanted to meet for a long time. Everyone was so kind and nicely dressed, each time they ask questions about my blog it still feels surreal. Hearing someone saying that they know me from the online world is usually an instant brain freeze for me, I get so emotionally, genuinely happy and I feel like I can’t thank them enough for being a part of my journey.
Fangirl-ing on the inside, trying to keep it cool on the outside when I casually bump into a star that I’ve seen on TV or online for like a million times as I cross the grass area to another party corner. I give them a shy, shaky smile and try not to blush and they always smile back or say hi. I’m such a creep! The rain kinda wanted to start but it couldn’t stop us in any way, so the little drops left the party eventually 🙂 #youcantsitwithus
After an event like that, where I hear so many succesful life stories, my motivation-meter explodes. I always dream from my little room about attending huge events like this one. I feel blessed to just be amongst the crowd, to feel their creative energy and be surrounded by their talents. This makes me open my big bag of dreams and start shaping them even more with my bare hands. “Willingness, persistence and patience. No dream is too big not to be achieved”. Sounds easy, right?
For this event, I wore a white blazer from H&M paired with a black jumpsuit (Reserved) and custom made red bag & beige flats (my feet are so happy about that). Minimal, polished and simple.

At the same time, congrats to all the nominees – I know how much hard work and passion a blog needs and I can only imagine how much these true icons worked to achieve this amazing goal.
The Awards ceremony
was presented by
the one and only Ana Morodan and
My favorite outfit was worn by Roxana Voloseniuc (click to see it) – with a bold pattern, this outfit was original in the most stylish way. For me, the editor-in-chief of the romanian ELLE is not only a style icon, but a woman I look up to and I admire her hard work.
A huge Thank you to the whole team for these new memories that I will cherish forever!
