Starbucks City Center

The popular chain Starbucks Coffee opened another café today, the 19th of December in the city center of Timisoara! With a total of 28 location, out of which now 3 in Timisoara, I wondered for the longest time why they never thought of opening one in the most visited place in town. It is only appropriate to have your source of amazing coffee in such a location and I’m not just saying this because it is close to my workplace.

The Starbucks team organised yesterday a private opening for bloggers and influencers and I happily attended. The atmosphere and the staff were amazing and I drowned myself in Christmas Specials and in chats with friends and fellow blogger.

Blogger rewind – 1 year of RedheadedRogue

It’s been quite some time since I last wrote in here and I do hope, that for the year ahead I will do my best and be more present. But talking about being present, today I realized that I’ve started my journey with RedheadedRogue exactly one year ago. And this sudden realization hit me like a ton of bricks. I’ve started many blogs and pages in my life, but never has one been so “serious” as this one. I might not have been constant in writing, but I’ve been here for one year.

I’ve done a fair share of photo shoots, some hauls, some Pinterest browsing, some goals setting, and most importantly some life changing. At the beginning of the year, I started shyly in posting, having few posts a month. Around March, I started to post more and more. Then I got a job and I lost my drive and inspiration. But it shouldn’t be an excuse. I might have not prioritized the blog because maybe I didn’t like the way it was going. Reason why, even now, I’m reluctant in posting and you do not hear from me for weeks.

But I will try to do better, I will try to get back on track. We just have to wait and see.

But for now, let’s just look at what I’ve done this year:


  • My boyfriend took me our for Sushi on our anniversary to test out the camera he bought me for my birthday. We treated ourselves well and enjoyed a very nice night. To see the entire post click HERE


  • I did my first post on a theater play that extremely inspired me and I urge my fellow citizens to go watch. Again, full post HERE


  • I got my first insult while wearing this little hat. Hadn’t worn it in a while, but not because of what happened. Post HERE


  • Had my first indoor outfit photo shoot, celebrating  NYE.  Nothing much to say, but I felt awkward AF. More awkwardness HERE.


  • At some point, I did my first haul. Again, awkward and hard to find a setting in my crowded room. See HERE


  • Then, the moment and person that changed my life AND my content. My first photo shoot with the wonderful Agi Forro! See HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.


  • That fist photo shoot then led to another… (HERE)


  • Then I wrote about the Youth Theater Festival in Timisoara, in which (after a one year break) I also took part. I wrote two articles about theater, you can check them out HERE and HERE 


  • What followed was a location based (amateur) photo shoot at the Fortress in Deva. We had nice weather, taking into account it rained a half an hour before this shoot.
    Check it out HERE


  • Important achievement; went and met Ana Morodan. HERE what I’ve learnt from and about her.


  • Then, for another photo shoot with Agi (which you can find HERE) I had my makeup done by the wonderful Anca .


  • And because I didn’t have enough, I got another friend of mine (hi Teo!) to take some pictures of me when we met up for coffee. See HERE


  • Then another photo shoot with Agi! HERE


  • Aaaand during the summer, I got a job. Which inspired THIS post:



  • Over the summer I had 2 outfit photo shoots (sad, I know) but, like I said, I lacked the drive. You can see these posts HERE, HERE


  • Then, when fall started, I collabed again with Agi for my first themed photo shoot. I had an unhealthy obsession with the 50s and spent a lot of time researching how to recreate that period in an outfit. See if I succeeded HERE.


  • And lastly, my former classmate, who is an amazing photographer took some pictures of me on the roof of my apartment building. See HERE the final product.


Actually, what I really want to say with this post is


Thank you to the ones that encouraged me, helped me, photographed me, put up with me and my wishes. Thank you to the photographers, who did their best with the pictures and have heroically dealt with my nagging. Thank you to the friends that liked and shared my posts, constantly urging me to become better. And lastly, thank you to my boyfriend, who stood by me through everything.


What I’ve been up to lately…

Nu am mai scris de câteva zile bune, dar vă spun și de ce. Mă confrunt cu câteva schimbări în momentul de față, și anume:

  • Job-m-am angajat recent și, nefiind obișnuită să lucrez 8 ore pe zi, am fost mai mereu obosită. Simt că ușor ușor îmi întru în ritm și voi putea posta regulat. Unde m-am angajat și cum e? Asta e altă postare, de sine stătătoare. Să zicem doar că anumite persoane ar trebuii să lucreze măcar o zi într-un loc asemănător cu locul meu de muncă.
  • Apartament-de câteva zile sunt în căutarea unui apartament de închiriat. M-am izbit de greutăți,la care nu mă așteptăm, problema principală fiind procesul de telefonat. Ori am eu ghinion, de toate numerele de contact “aparent” nu sunt în service, ori nu știu unde să caut. Desigur, mai multe despre ce peripeții implică căutarea unei chirii voi scrie după ce mă văd mutată. Deci, altă postare, mai târziu.

În altă ordine de idei, am mai făcut puțin shopping prin second-uri, dar postarea vine prin august, ca să prind și următoarele reduceri la colecția actuală. Și desigur, ca să nu fie luna iulie doar muncă și nemă distracție, recent mi-am luat și eu nebunia verii “Pokémon Go”. Prinde numai bine să mă joc în drum spre muncă și înapoi!

Oricum, v-am lăsat! Promit că, în curând, apare și postarea legată de noul meu loc de muncă. Continue reading “What I’ve been up to lately…”

În vizită la Cetate// Visiting the Fortress

Ieri am fost până la Cetatea Devei, să o vadă şi Paul. Iniţial am pornit pe ploaie de la sat, dar am adus soarele la Deva şi am prins vreme frumoasă. Nu e prima oară când o văd, dar e prima oară după renovare. Ne-a plăcut!!!

EN: Yesterday we visited the Fortress of Deva, so that Paul will also see it. We left on a rainy basis from home, but by the time we reached Deva, the sun was shining bright. It’s not the first time we see it, but it is the first time after renovations. We liked it!!!

3 years and counting…


On the 7th of December 3 years ago, I received the most beautiful gift anyone could receive. Love. This love has given me strength, has supported me in all kinds of situations, has never let me down and was always there to cushion my fall.

It is only natural for me to dedicate my first post on this blog to the one that helps and supports me constantly in following my dreams. Thank you for always being there and for being mine!


So, now to the actual post of the day.

To celebrate our anniversary we decided to go to Sushi Ya in our hometown, Timisoara. He’s never eaten sushi before and I wanted to be there to see his first reaction to raw fish. We decided we wanted to pig out, especially since both of us starved almost all day.

Firstly, we ordered our drinks (which, of course, were oh-so-typical!). I ordered Sencha (Green Tea) and he ordered No.1 beer in Japan, namely Asahi.


He also ordered Shrimp Miso Soup, but I was in no mood for soup, so I just patiently waited for our sushi.


Our order, the Yokohama plate, consisted of:

2 Sake Nigiri, 2 Maguro Nigiri, 2 Tamago Nigiri, 4 Spicy Maki, 6 Sushi Ya Maki, 8 Surimi Maki, 8 Special Ebi Maki

If you are not into spicy things, I wouldn’t recommend trying Spicy Maki, because it will ruin the taste for you. I did. Once.

On the side, we also ordered California Maki because it’s a plate to die for! It is my favorite dish and I don’t ever eat at Sushi Ya without ordering Cali-Rolls.

Eigentlich schön// Defapt e frumos..



RO: Ieri am mers împreună cu Hina la Teatrul German de Stat din Timișoara. Ea este mai mereu prezentă pe acolo în ultimul timp și tind să cred că a văzut mai multe piese decât mine. Deși nu vorbește limba germană, a prins gustul pieselor TGST (aparent) după ce i-am recomandat Täter// Făptașii.

Având acest lucru în vedere, am rămas plăcut surprinsă când m-a chemat să mergem împreună la premiera piesei Eigentlich schön// Defapt e frumos. Recunosc, am vrut să mă las uimită de piesă și nu am căutat informații despre ea. Iar, cum de altfel producțiile TGST nu m-au dezamăgit niciodată, nici această piesă nu s-a lăsat mai prejos.

Volker Schmidt este geniul în spatele piesei Eigentlich schön, piesă care pune în vizor un grup de oameni aparent stăpâni pe viața lor în mediul online, dar care fug de obligații, au relații eșuate și sunt mereu în căutare de ceva mai bun în viața reală. V-aș spune mai multe, dar impactul e cu atât mai mare cu cât știți mai puțin. Mai adaug doar că această piesă scoate în evidență probleme actuale și te lasă ulterior cu un gust dulce-amarui, dar și cu o învățătură de minte. Cel putin, așa a fost în cazul me Continue reading “Eigentlich schön// Defapt e frumos..”
