Volokolamsk trip

Remember I told you about small trip? After we ran on Sunday (my post before shared my experience and outfit) we took time to visit bigger location, town of Volokolamsk just 6 km from the start area. The town is pretty old and it has kremlin. Sounds like a must visit if you pass by! It was first mentioned as Volok Lamsky in 1135 and it was exactly what it was called: a land transfer way for boats from one river to the others. The biggest is called Lama. As simple as that. The kremlin isn’t big and original walls didn’t live up today being built of wood. You can still enjoy the moats and brisk arch/entrance followed by narrow stairs. The inner buildings are mostly churches and the museum. I’d say you’ll need an hour and a half to explore everything in the area.





I wore new jeans. I didn’t think it would such a great fit on me. I originally tried it on as a gag. Now I barely want to take it off (traded it for a dress though). I had other things to do scheduled for the day so I am all abou…

Racing and reviewing

Enjoy the little things. Yesterday I made it to my first run this year (race actually but counting my own results it is being a part is what matters). It was so emotional and so good. I loved it so much. It felt close to my first runs ever by the emotions. And it was also a new location to me. We ran near town of Volokolamsk next to a memorial for 28 heroes Panfilovcy. There is a story of WWII heroes, A squad waited for reinforcements and didn't back off because Moscow, the capital, was right behind them. Only 28 men survived to see the help. They are highly praised here, even though we are not sure it is fully truth. I loved the memorial, it looks impressive but there is no pomposity you see so often about about Russian WWII monuments (even though they are not called WWII, in Russia it is called the Great Patriotic War). For the run I wore a new suit I was provided by Dear-lover wonderful shop. The suit is made with snake print which I love (and I am Zodiac snake, by the way, an…

Water Reflection

Hello!
It's almost August already! How crazy is that! Time flies and it flies even faster as you have limitations and some lifts of said limitations. In short you want to squeeze everything in the little time you have to enjoy it all. People are treasuring connections even more now and it leaves less time. Also I have a short vacation coming next week which I am even more excited about. I don't really have a proper update so I will just go with I have here. Actually we took these photos during the short walk in the park with husband. We took it as break from work. He has more work than ever this month and with vacation he is super busy. It's just what life is: having it all and treasuring what you have.

As for my outfit it's the example of little something I wear daily without any blog plans behind. Comfortable romper, flip flops all that. But the location is so pretty that I hope you'll just enjoy the view with me more than my actual outfit. I actually wore awesome…

Pigeon House

Man, these days are packed with events and things to do. I am balancing doing all the needfull stuff and still find time to relax and enjoy. I apologize my blog took beating last week and I didn't post my regular Friday/Saturday update. It's only natural.





This photoshoot took me around 5 minutes to do but I love the mood of it. I wore comfortable skirt, top and a jacket as it was rainy that day and the wind felt cold. I wore this outfit to hang out with my Dad one on one which we don't do often. I really enjoyed chatting and laughing with him over a cup of coffee. We should do it more often.


Wishing you the best week possible. Enjoy a little extra real life pigeon who provided camera settings service for my hubby. Check out his expression! So bold!
I was wearing:
Skirt, bag and 'Hello Kitty' top from Uniqlo
Jacket c/o Rosegal
Armani jeans shoes
Monki avocado socks (I have tons of avocado related stuff to be honest)

Have a nice day, Lyosha

Hyper Casual

I took a short walk to see my parents and took these photos on a way. Can't really say much about this outfit, I didn't try to make it an outfit per se but photos turned out so nice I decided to share it with you. And frankly I've been a little lazy on creating content as of late so I am trying to compensate it in a way and in future. I promise to make lots and lots of awesome photos for you to enjoy in blog my blog and socials. Sometimes I think I should have blogged about my dogs' adventures, they always have something exciting happening. But than I realized it's not like it in the end of the day.

As there are less and less limitation tied with the pandemic we are super excited to have a first run 'race' this season on August 2d. It will also be in a town I have never been to so I am also excited to have a small trip. And talking about the excitement we booked a small trip to St. Petersburg and Russian Karelia later in August. And as a fini…

Boat office

During the hot days I want to spend more time next to the water. And as my father owns a boat and is willing to lend it to us from time to time we can't stay away from it. But after the lockdown there are so many things we want to catch up on or have to do we don't have extra time just to enjoy our selves. So we thought a little and decided to combine two passions in one.I won't lie, it feels great. Water makes any heat more tolerable and being able to take a break swimming definitely feels special. Also boat makes such a different perspective on everything, you feel different and somehow rested.

There are two outfits featured here. One is a very simple and beloved dress from Forever21. I wear on cycling trips and during the relaxed days and I am pretty sure it will last for a season or two more before it falls off being ripped and torn. The second outfit is a beach dress, which I used to cover up my bikini. I didn't have that much work that day, so I enjoyed more swi…
