I never thought planning was for me. I had tried it in the past and failed to stick to it, so I almost always gave up. However, something unexpected (I’d say) happened in the past few months, and I’m now using not one, but three notebooks as mini planners and consider myself a lot more organized.

In today’s post, I’ll show you each one of these notebooks (two of which are handmade – you’ll also find out how I made them!) and explain their use! Read More

Hi everyone! How have you been?
Today I’m bringing you a post about my current skincare routine, as I found it works pretty well at maintaining my skin feeling nice and smooth.

I have combination skin, with dry cheeks and an oily T-zone. What works for me might not work for you, but I’m simply here to share the products I like. Also, there are days when my skin is just oily, days when it’s the exact opposite, and days when it’s completely unproblematic and normal. I found that what I put into my body also affects the way my skin “behaves”. Read More

Every year, around Christmas, my city gets decorated with tons of fairy lights. In 2018, I didn’t get to go in December and fully enjoy them. That is why, this month, I decided to finally go and see them up-close, while they are still up (usually in January they’re taken down).

Here are some photos I took! Read More

We’re all guilty of going to bed really late, especially in this day and age. Because of that, more and more people are becoming night owls. What is a night owl?, you may ask. Well, I’m sure you already know, but I’ll explain it anyway.

Basically, when you continuously wake up rather late and go to bed, again, late. So let’s say you go to bed at 2am, because you’ve been on the internet or you’ve been watching your favourite TV show. In order to get all the sleep you need you will probably wake up late, instead of early in the morning. And by doing that constantly, it becomes a routine, it becomes your lifestyle. And you find yourself at 9pm feeling extremely motivated and productive, like you could start exercising right in that second or you could start this new project you’ve been meaning to start for so long.

Feeling this random spurt of energy will make you excited at first, but then you will realize that it’s almost what is considered “bed time” and you most likely end up saying that you’ll do it the next day, when the sun is still up.

Now, that’s just my experience with being a night owl. You know, I’m guilty of spending most days procrastinating and going to bed quite late. I know I’m not alone, though. To be completely honest with you, I’m writing this and it’s past midnight. Yup… something has to change!

I want to start by saying a huge thank you to everyone who supported me and this blog throughout the year. When I started Oxria in March, I had no idea it would do so well in the blogging world. And even though no major thing happened, for me, having made new friends and having shared so many posts was very important!

I’m excited to continue sharing my experience and advice with you on here in 2019! πŸ˜€

In this post, which will probably be the last of 2018, I’ve decided to write a “year review”.

The Houses With Eyes of Sibiu (Romania)

You know me – I love quirky things! Anything out of the ordinary and I’m sold, haha!

In October I had the awesome opportunity to visit Sibiu – another stunning city in Transylvania, Romania. If you’ve read my Brasov travel diary, well, Sibiu is very similar to it, but smaller.

It’s known for Germanic architecture in its old town, the legacy of 12th-century Saxon settlers. Around the city are the remains of medieval walls and towers, including the 13th-century Council Tower.

This post is not about Sibiu as a whole, but rather about a very quirky element of the city. When I went there, I immediately noticed that some houses “had eyes”.
