Dreaming of a White Christmas

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas at Cheile Cibinului…Just like the ones I used to know…
Where the treetops glisten and children listen…To hear sleighbells in the snow
I’m dreaming of a white Christmas…With every Christmas card, I write

May your days be Merry and bright…And may all your Christmas be white…

One morning a princess still in her red silk pajamas, woke up dreaming of a white Christmas, just like the ones she used to read about when she was a little girl. The atmosphere, the mountains, the songs and the SNOW…and the prince charming, of course!

Have you ever dreamed of a prince who would rescue you from a very tall tower where you’re totally alone, watching the surroundings and then the stars all night long? Or a prince who would kiss you to save from the eternal sleep of a modern “Snow White”…and then take you to his palace where you would live happily ever after…? Well…I think all the girls reading this right now have thought about it at least once in their lifetime…

Unfortunately, these are just beautiful and naive dreams…But what could I do better when I woke up in a magical place like Cheile Cibinului near Sibiu?

However, when I arrived there and saw such beautiful surroundings and find these amazing wooden chalets, I remembered all the romantic fairytales I had ever heard. The winter atmosphere is just so magical at Cheile Cibinului and I can’t wait to come back there. For sure, when everything it will be covered in white snow…You can see all the mountains around and their top touching the clouds…

We have so many wonderful places in Romania…and every time I’m discovering a new one I’m so excited and happy. Sibiu has always been close to my heart but I never imagined…

there exist a natural resort like Cheile Cibinului.

So, Saturday morning I got in the car and after 4 hours drive, I arrived in a truly wonderful mountain area where I decided to shoot a winter campaign for my blog.

Our photoshoot inspiration came from the mountain resort itself. Set amongst breath-taking mountains and dark green pines, it was the perfect location to bring our Christmas campaign to life. Traditional yet modern, we were captivated by the beautiful wooden interior, lodge decor, and grand fireplaces. We decorated the chalet with arctic furs and glittering metallic ornaments to enhance the romantic getaway feel. I can’t wait to share with you all my pictures from the shooting…

So stay tuned! There is still so much to come!

All I can think right now is “Damn, I do love my beautiful country!”

 This was for sure one of the most fabulous shootings since I got back from Paris.

However, I enjoyed every minute of my stay at Cheile Cibinului…drinking coffee in my bed with such fairytale views at my window…Thinking of a White Christmas…reconnecting too when I was a child, but not for the gifts…just for the indescribable magic I breathed…watching movies in my red pajamas and white snowflakes socks and waiting for the meeting with Santa Claus…

“because I will always be a little doll!”

I want a real white Christmas, with the snow and the atmosphere, just like in the movies. With that desire to share and be together…

Don’t ever forget that this is the real meaning of Christmas!

 And you can always find it at Cheile Cibinului Complex, Gura Raului, Sibiu…
