oh Zanzibar

Jambo! You can say I loved my vacation that much because I haven't been traveling abroad for over a year and you even might partly be right. However, I think it was mostly due to fact that it exactly was the vacation we needed. Hakuna Matata, pole pole - both common phrases on Zanzibar coast. I think each and everyone of you know what Hakuna Matata means and I think you might even sing the song in your heart or at least picture Pumbaa and Timon in your head. It is an actual Swahili phrase and it is used a lot with tourists. 'Would you like *service name*?' - 'No thanks' - 'Hakuna Matata'; 'Could you serve my breakfast 15 minutes earlier?' - 'sure, hakuna matata'. Pole pole means slowly, no rush. It is widely use to describe the road situation or offer to take your time in the shop but it quickly became our lifestyle. I still have issues collecting myself to a city girl vibe without much of pole pole + hakuna matata approach. Bare with me.

Colored wigs welcome

Hello! Nobody needs vacation more than I do! I had such a blast in Zanzibar island so much sun, ocean and sand. My soul is still there and not ready to take on the daily life. I did some cleaning at home (dusting is too much needed) and loaded laundry with happy clothes I used to wear on the paradise island. Surroundings seem alien at home but I am mostly happy to see my dogs (a part of me is a little knocked out with their endless playful energy and desire for hugs and kisses though).  I haven't sorted the photos just yet so I don't have a vacation report for you but I promise it will be long series of summery outfits and happy face for you. But to mark my start of regular daily life I wanted to make a post for you. To do so I turned my face to a new yet very inspiring online shop and hair websites called Uniwigs. My hair didn't suffer from sun a lot (mostly because I wore a hat at all times) bu at some point I thought I might really use a wig not for fun and new look b

Men styles from Wayrates

My hubby's Birthday has just passed and I surely loved celebrating it with him (we eat tasty food and met our friends so it felt awesome to me as well). But it wasn't that easy to pick a perfect present for him. I wanted to be sneaky and make a surprise for him. It is not that easy to do actually. First of all you have think of something to give. It's not easy with husband who never wants anything if you ask him but actually has wishes if you don't ask him. Basically if you listen to him you'll be able to name quite a number of things he actually wants. I often browse online for things he might like and say I need it for my blog is he asks me. It is normally banned at home so I rarely buy him any clothes (the only time when it was welcomed and appreciated is when I bought exactly the same hoodie he loved and got it completely worn out). But it doesn't stop me to think what I would buy him if I had a chance. Disclaimer: I have to admit my hubby has wonderful tas

Oil museum VDNH

  Talking about fun stuff. My husband did several museums projects and he is about to do some more. I am very excited because a) it's fun b) it's extra money to enjoy whatever c) I get to go to the museums because we need to. That was the main reason to visit the museum of oil located in VDNH, Moscow. And it's also super close to the climbing center we have a pass to. It was so much fun! The whole museum is interactive and you get to touch, move, look, put on or scan everything. It gives a lot of information on usage of oil (and it's actually a lot wider than I have thought before). Shows a lot of information regarding actual mining and transportation of oil as well manufacturing with oil. I l absolutely loved the time capsule in the museum and information from interactive book with usage of oil in various ancient cultures (the book it self is not that good by the way, they show text information with a flow, text changes but it is self for a very low reading speed, it i

Circus

Hello! Last time I went to the circus 9 years ago and also in March. You probably wonder how come I remember it so well. Actually we went to the circus thanks to my parents the day we applied to get married (in Russia you had to (or still have I am not sure) apply to get your marriage registered two months in advance). My own parents been super worried and nervous back in their day and they celebrate the application day even more than actual wedding date. I think it's super adorable. That's why when I had an opportunity to visit circus I immediately said say. I was provided tickets to the circus of dancing fountains 'Aquamarine' Moscow by 55555 club. It was super awesome because not only I got the ticket for myself I had more to share. So I took my husband and my sis' family to the circus. They say kids love it the most so I just had to take my 5 year old flexible niece and my suddenly very grown up 12 year old niece with me. By the way, the latter shocked me being

Shape your confidence wear

It's not a secret I gained some weight through out 2020. Many of us did. Suddenly I love my body now even more than I did in slimmer days but at the same time, it feels a bit harder for me seeing imperfection here and there. I feel stronger and happier even though my 6 pack have seen better days. I have never thought I will come back to a though of wearing shape-wear for formal events but I always did know it is an option and it works great boosting your confidence and also helping with posture (the latter comes a bonus and is super awesome for formal events where you want to look your 100% best). Today I teamed up with Loverbeauty to show some wonderful options of shapewear. Here are various options for various situations shape wear might help to feel confident and happy about the way you look in a dress or a suit. Here are three possibilities out of many. I have never tried it myself but a lot of women state it helps a ton with getting back in shape providing help while traini

Best friends

They say diamonds unbreakable (bonus points for people who stroke a post right now). They say diamonds are girl's best friends. I do think diamonds are pretty but there are so many other options and so many great friends. I do think we shouldn't limit ourselves. I have birthday soon and I often get asked if I want to get some jewelry. The thing is: I don't. I love my rings and earrings but it's easily not my favorite. But it doesn't stop me from checking out limitless options online. One of my biggest secrets is that my browser history is not a good source to get to know my desires, I love checking things out online pretending I might need it as if tasting some other person's life. You can try it too, it's fun. Or at least my type of fun. Long story short I found myself looking through jewelry and I found it a great source of inspiration. The place is Penfine and I loved it there. SO many wonderful elegant styles. Today I want to share with you my top cho
