Out and about Digital Divas Awards 2016

EN  Today I’ll talk about the experience from the Digital Divas Awards 2016 and I will point each and every plus and minus but first of all I would like to thank you all who voted for me especially that I did not expect such a large number of votes, thank you all for your support and encouragements and mostly I thank you for your constant visit on my blog:

What I liked:

  1. I liked the location from the Bragadiru Palace and I liked even more  the fact that I lived in the proximity of the palace;
  2. I liked the organization and to my surprise I got there in time, hence we got front seats 😛 (given that I am the mother of delaying);
  3. I adored the Häagen-Dazs ice cream (us, the girls we used to joke saying this would have been the main reason for our presence at the event) :);
  4. I liked the bar and buffet where I found a variety of dishes based on fish. I’m an avid fish-based cousine.
  5. I congratulated myself that I ultimately decided to participate to the day conferences (as originally, I was thinking not to because I was lazy to go back home to change in evening attire which I would have missed it for nothing in the world);
  6. I liked that I met many awesome people like Ana Bitu , which I finelly met her in person. I got a boost of energy from Andreea Esca’s joviality, which by the way is super fun, cool and fresh unlike the image I had in mind from TV. I was surprised by the open and friendly attitude of Laura Cosoi which I met the night before on the Iasi airport. It was also a pleasure to meet the fashion blogger Zenobia Lazarovici from www.neoandlime.com blog from Timisoara city, my hometown. Yes, for those of you who did not know I was born and raised until a certain age in Timisoara. And yes, I hope someday I’ll revisit the streets of my childhood, the kindergarten and schools where I learned the first letters, and of course the loved people from there.
  7. I liked the speakers – I came back to Iasi with a bunch of ideas of projects and new categories, I learned a lot of things. One of them and perhaps most important one is to follow my INSTINCTS. I only found that although I have a lot of ideas, most of them get lost in the process. It talked about what it means to do what you love without necessarily having a concrete plan and what it means to be guided by a strategy. About traditional advertising and traditional publicity, about outsourcing, authenticity, work with yourself, passion, and current trends, about what the digital world mean now days, about blogging as business and entrepreneurship in general. In conclusion I can say that there is not a recipe for success and does not need to win any awards in order to be successful. I’ve seen a lot of successful bloggers who have not won any prize, otherwise normal, given that we are so many and the prize is one. I’m felling proud that two bloggers from my city won the 3rd prize, each within the category they were nominated (Ema’s World – category BEST NEWCOMER FASHION BLOG and Daniela Macsim with the “Choose to lose weight in a healthy way” – category SPECIAL PROJECTS BY bloggers) I would like to congratulate them for this achievement!

What I did not like:

  1. I would have liked a speaker who started and succeeded from scratch as a no name;
  2. I would have wanted to see more photos published from the event by the organizers;
  3. The light in the room was rubbish for taking photos and, the sound was too loud;
  4. I did not liked queuing at the bar where people were losing about 20-30 min for each drink so hopefully in the future the organizer will place two bars;
  5. And I would have liked an after party. After the event people got more relaxed the pressure was gone and it was a good time for socializing.

What was my outfit choice for the Digital Divas Awards event? Well .. for the day I chose a casual and comfortable attire. An ecological leather skirt paired with a serenity blue shirt that we brought it in contrast with a fuchsia envelope, precious earrings and the already classic Superstar from Adidas. I hold my hair into a low ponytail.

For the evening I chose an all white outfit, my own design. It was composed of a ruffle top and a hem pencil skirt. I accessorized it with the same fuchsia envelope (nah … what can I do? I flew there and therefore I had a luggage limit weight) and a pair of lemon yellow shoes with thick mosaic heels.

Until next time stay fashion!

From Romania with love!



RO   Azi va vorbesc despre experienta din cadrul Digital Divas Awards 2016 si o voi face punctual dar nu inainte de a va multumi tuturor celor care m-au votat si nu ati fost putini la numar, va multumesc pentru sustinerea si incurajarile voastre si cel mai mult va multumesc pentru faptul ca intrati pe blogul meu si imi cititi articolele:

Ce mi-a placut:

  1. Mi-a placut locatia de la Palatul Bragadiru si cu atat mai mult mi-a placut faptul ca am locuit in proximitatea palatului;
  2. Mi-a placut organizarea si ca spre surprinderea mea am ajuns la timp, astfel ca, am prins locuri in fata 😛 (in conditiile in care eu sunt mama intarziatului)
  3. Am adorat inghetata Häagen-Dazs (glumeam noi intre noi fetele cum ca asta ar fi fost principalul motiv al prezentei noastre la eveniment) 🙂
  4. Mi-a placut barul si bufetul unde am regasit o varietate de preparate pe baza de peste. Eu fiind o impatimita a produselor pe baza de peste;
  5. M-am felicitat ca m-am decis in cele din urma sa particip si la conferintele din timpul zilei (initial ma gandeam sa nu merg pentru ca imi era greu sa merg seara din nou acasa pentru a ma schimba in tinuta de seara pe care nu as fi ratat-o pentru nimic in lume);
  6. Mi-a placut ca am cunoscut foarte multi oameni faini “cu jumatatile de pahare pline” cum ar zice Ana Bitu, pe care am cunoscut-o in persoana. M-a incarcat jovialitatea Andreei Esca care, by the way mi s-a parut super amuzanta, cool si fresh fata de imaginea cu care crescusem eu, de la TV. M-a surprins atitudinea deschisa si prietenoasa a Laurei Cosoi pe care o cunoscusem cu o seara inainte pe aeroportul din Iasi. Mi-a facut placere sa o cunosc pe bloggerita de fashion Lazarovici Zenobia cu blogul www.neoandlime.com din Timisoara, orasul meu natal. Da, m-am nascut si crescut pana la o anumita varsa in Timisoara pentru cei dintre voi care inca nu stiti. Si da, sper ca intr-o zi sa revad stradutele copilariei mele, gradinita si scolile la care am invatat primele sloave, cat si oamenii dragi de acolo;
  7. Mi-au placut speakerii – am venit la Iasi cu o gramada de idei de proiecte si categorii, am invatat foarte mult lucruri. Unul dintre ele si poate cel mai important este acela de a-mi urma INSTINCTUL. Am constatat singura ca desi am o gramada de idei, unele dintre ele se pierd pe parcurs. S-a vorbit despre ce inseamna sa faci ceea ce-ti place fara neaparat a avea un plan concret si ce inseamna sa te ghidezi dupa o strategie. Despre publicitatea traditionala, publicitatea agresiva, despre externalizare, autenticitate, munca cu tine insuti, pasiune, trenduri si curente, despre ce inseamna lumea digitala, despre blogging ca si business si antreprenoriat in general. In concluzie pot spune ca nu exista o reteta a succesului si nici nu este nevoie sa castigi vreun premiu pentru a avea succes. Am vazut o gramada de bloggeri de succes care nu au castigat nici un premiu, lucru normal de altfel, dat fiind ca noi suntem atatia iar premiul este unul singur. Ma simt totusi mandra, ca doua iesence de ale noastre au castigat fiecare cate un premiu 3 la categoria la care au fost nominalizate (Ema’s World la categoria BEST NEWCOMER FASHION BLOG si Daniela Macsim cu proiectul “Alege sa slabesti sanatos” la categoria SPECIAL PROJECTS BY BLOGGERS) si tin sa le felicit pe aceasta cale!

Ce nu mi-a placut:

  1. Mi-ar fi placut ca printre speakeri sa se numere si macar un blogger de success care a pornit ca un no name;
  2. Mi-as fi dorit sa se publice mult mai multe fotografii de la eveniment;
  3. Lumina din sala nu a fost buna pentru fotografii iar, sonorizarea a fost prea tare;
  4. Nu mi-a placut coada de la bar unde pierdeai cate 20-30 min, as incat sper ca pe viitor sa se amplaseze doua abaruri;
  5. Si mi-ar mai fi placut un after party, dupa eveniment lumea era mult mai relaxata si ar fi fost un moment bun de socializare.

Ce am purtat la evenimentul Digital Divas Awards? Pai.. pentru zi am ales o tinuta casual si confortabila. O fusta din piele ecologica, o camasa albastru serenity pe care am adus-o in contrast cu plicul fuchsia, o pereche de cercei pretiosi si clasicii Superstar de la Adidas. Parul mi l-am prins intr-o coada de cal joasa.

Pentru seara am ales o tinuta all white, creatie proprie. A fost compusa dintr-un top cu volan si o fusta creion cu peplu la partea inferioara. Am accesorizat-o cu acelasi plic fuchsia (nah… ce sa-i faci? am zburat cu avionul si implicit am avut limita la bagaj) si o pereche de pantofi galben lamai, cu toc gros mozaic.

Pana data viitoare ramaneti in tendinte!

Din Iasi cu dragoste!
