Shaped by all things beautiful and feminine, Nicoleta Parascan’s first steps towards entering the captivating world of fashion were taken somewhere around the young age of six, when she received her very own first fashion magazine. Discovering an entirely new universe, filled with pretty ladies and beautiful clothes, there was not much able to ever beat or compete with the fantasy land that was suddenly opening up. Surrounded by books, constantly thinking about the next best outfit, in search of a signature style and defined by a nostalgic calling towards the past, Nicoleta believes in taking chances, in destiny and in building her own path in life. When she’s not writing, you can easily find her playing with her cat, reading an old book, watching movies, exploring the city or blogging her own daily adventures.

Life that begins when the night falls

For some people, the days seem to suddenly get to an endpoint as soon as the sun sets, cutting all strings, limiting all activities, shutting down all senses. For others instead, a new life begins when the night falls, a life dotted with bright shining lights and thoughts that only become possible once the dark settles in. In love with the irregular world outside and…
