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”.

Hi everyone! Oh, it’s been so long since I last posted!! And this new design of the “Add New Post” page is very confusing, haha! Oh, well… It will take me a while to get used to it.

The reason why I’ve been gone for a whole month is because I had to prepare for a very important exam. Now that it’s over, I’m back! 

In November I bought a film camera, something I’ve been wanting to buy for a very long time. Today’s post is about that: my new Agfa Optima I. πŸ™‚

The Clay Castle. Yet another magical place in Romania. Even the name of the valley where it can be found is very dreamy: the Valley of the Fairies.

I visited this lovely place in October, during a short trip. It was one of the tourist attractions I was most excited about. And, although I didn’t spend a lot of time exploring it (honestly, there’s not too much to explore – but I’ll get to that in a second), it was such a wonderful experience to see it in person.

In today’s post, I’ll share the photos I took during my trip and talk about my experience there. Read More

We don’t celebrate Halloween where I live (unfortunately) but I thought I’d start this post by wishing you a fun Halloween! πŸ˜€

Some of you recently asked me to share my favourite songs in a post, so that’s what this post is about! Although my favourites haven’t changed that much in the past months, I’ve added a few more artists/songs to my playlist!

So yeah, without further ado, here’s the full 2018 playlist with my favourite songs!
