Undress Conversations - Raisa Beicu

Raisa – the girl who loves books and laughs with her heart



She has a full-time job in communication, writes for various magazines and reads tons of books – about which she writes on her own blog. She has – what we would call – a busy life. But despite this hectic life, she seems to always knows how to make room for herself.

Simple living often means focusing on what we love and the hobbies we often forget, when our lives are packed with “shoulds.” Raisa learnt and knows how to do this very well and that’s the first thing we should all learn from her.

A morning ritual

I enjoy a rich delicious breakfast daily. I never leave home without it.

Home is… 

Where my books are.

Where the memories of my former relationships live.

Favorite song that you had on repeat on 2020

Favorite book

In 2020: On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong

In general: The Great Gatsby &all the books written by Jonathan Franzen

Favorite artist

It’s impossible for me to choose only one artist, since I listen to the music all the time. I have my Spotify on when writing, driving, walking in the park, working. Here are a few of my fav artists: Balthazar, Warhaus, Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, RY X, Asaf Avidan, Ibrahim Maalouf, Tigran Hamasyan, Illuminine, James Blake, The Antlers, Milky Chance, Roo Panes, Faraj Suleiman, Leif Vollebekk, Portico Quartet, Tall Tree 6th Man, SYML, Charlie Cunningham, JFDR, Tamino, The Temper Trap, Low Roar, Andrew Bird, Ásgeir, The Cinematic Orchestra, The Tallest Man on Earth, Faces on TV.

Favorite local brand

Rhea Costa

Favorite movie

The Great Gatsby – it is my favourite book as well because of its power of symbolizing the fight for love, the loss of love, the constant loneliness of the human condition. I also adore all the movies from Wes Anderson and Paolo Sorrentino – they are my fav film directors.

The best thing happened in 2020 for you or the world

I think 2020 taught us all to wait. To hope. To stop running. To enjoy the moment before losing it.

Share a comfort food recipe
