Last month I started a special social media project, called #MakeFacebookGreatAgain, which consists of recommendations of books, things, places or articles I enjoyed so much that I would like to share them with others, so this post will compile everything I shared in the past 30 days and some few more, just for the blog readers 😉

 

MUSIC

Have a nice day – Stereophonics tribute (put this on before continuing reading, it will definitely brighten up your day)

 

BOOKS

Secret Lives of Colour by Kassia St Clair (published in Romanian by Baroque Books and Arts, which is the first one in Romania to print on sustainable ecological paper!)

Thrive by Arianna Huffington ( Facebook post here)

 

PLACES

VanFruct, Bucharest. They conquered my heart after I learned they have recyclable cups made from vegetal sources, so I highly recommend them.

Grilled vegetables and Halloumi cheese salad at Simbio, Bucharest. So. Damn. Good. That’s all I’m gonna say.

 

FILMS

Dunkirk. Even if you’re not a fan of the war genre, check this out for the amazing soundtrack Hans Zimmer has created.

Atonement. I know I am late to the bandwagon, but I recently watched it and I can’t believe nobody scolded me for missing out on such great movie.

 

ARTICLES AND VIDEOS

What the Truman Show teaches us about politics – video ( Facebook post here)

The surprising habits of original thinkers – video (Facebook post here)

Why UPS drivers don’t turn left and you probably shouldn’t either – article (Facebook post here)

50 Ways Happier, Healthier, And More Successful People Live On Their Own Terms ( here is a quote I liked from the article : “An entrepreneur is someone who works for a few years like no one will so they can live the rest of their life like no one else can.”)

P.S. With great joy I can finally share with you a piece I wrote for ELLE Romania about my experience in Russia. Although it’s originally in Romanian, some friends already told me they translated it within the browser. Let me know what you think!

 

INITIATIVES:

Dior’s What Would You Do For Love? – a campaign which supports the education of young girls

 

I hope I inspired you to watch more, read more, see more and most importantly, BE MORE!

Until next time,

 

Laura
