Merry Christmas!

Happy holidays! No matter if you are celebrating or not it's a great opportunity to do something festive. I'm just back from classic music concert and now sharing post I've prepared for you several days ago but wasn't able to publish.
For this Christmas I wanted to do something special. Usually I make some festive outfit and post something personal. Two years ago it was post featuring special facts about me, year recap and some goals.. this time I wanted to share something more personal. This is small post about Lyosha at home. It's my perfect way to relax: reading some book, hug my animals or simply look through the window. This post is also sharing 'my spot' at home, my corner and fave chair to do nothing important. You can also see my shelf of Warhammer miniatures behind, my fave home hair-do and toy alpaca Don with me.

happy holidays!
I was wearing:
tee c/o Oasap

Have a nice day, Lyosha

Ball dresses for ball Christmas

Christmas is so close to us! Most of my readers already posted their prepared Christmas looks but I'm still posting about dreams and wishes for the looks. However I wouldn't attend anything like ball for sure but there is always a space to dream of. This time I teamed up with Weddingshe company to pick some hot dresses I'd wear if I had a place where to. Gowns are always amazingly stylish and pretty and it's even partly sad we can't wear them often enough. So Christmas or New Year could be a great chance. If had several opportunities and once contained also a possibility to wear a gown... well I'm definitely in. 
This time I actually wanted to make a special Christmas inspired post featuring a possibly to fit Bridal Wedding Dresses section into  this theme. It's also a great chance to rehear your wedding dress in some other occasion.
I didn't want to go for classic white lace ball gown wedding dresses. They are beautiful for sure but in fact lately I pos…

Eternal Girl

If you forgot I have a wonderful section on my blog which is all about designers and interesting projects. This time I want to share a wonderful interview I've done with Julia, accessory designer (visit her Etsy shop Eternal Girl) and blogger from Puella Aeterna.



1 you own a blog and a shop. What came first? Is mixed in some kind of way for you?

My shop came first. I started blogging to update my fans about my latest designs.

2 which are you sources of inspiration?
I get inspired from henna and mehndi art. I fell in love with the cultural experience of the design and special symbolism.

3 I was smitten with artwork of your necklaces. Did you learn to paint somewhere?
I have not studied art professionally. I have always loved to draw and paint ever since I was young.



4 Tell us about the piece you ever designed
The necklaces I design are all hand-drawn. Each necklace is created with a unique, henna inspired pattern mixed with my own style. The images are secured in an antique styled,…

Travel tips

Recently wonderful guys from RelayRides asked me to write about my travels. I do love traveling and for me it's amazing to travel no matter where (so prepare for a huge post). I was very happy to share my thoughts about it as actually due to changes in my life for now we are not traveling as often and big as we did before.
Each travel starts with packing a bag. Each bag should work. Also a good bag or a backpack works the best if you empty it and carry along during the walk having some necessary extra stuff with you.
I'm a fan of light travels. Usually my hubby and I wear a simple backpack where we put everything we need. Two weeks trip to NY and Costa Rica was made with two backpacks (each qualified for worst condition hand luggage size) and a camera bag. I usually work my closet to vary the most with least of clothes. But there are some essential things I take always like at least on sweater even if it's summer because nobody knows may be we end up somewhere in cooler pa…

Blue dresses

Talking about clothes and dresses for me there is one color which I love the most - blue. For me blue could never be a 'miss' not matter what. Even if I talk about puffy dresses. In fact for me this post is a very fun experience - to write about something I wouldn't normally suggest. I teamed up with Sweetquinceaneradress. This time I browsed through Blue Quinceanera Dresses. Blue is my favourite color which helps a lot with those dresses. Having tons of Birthdays in December among family and close friends make it easier. Being older than 15 is making things a little harder as I basically can't imagine my 15 year-old self wearing any of those dresses. But if I had a younger sister which dress would I suggest?
Quinceanera as far I could google is 15th Birthday, pretty much the same with Sweet Sixteen. So the day should be BIG. By the way, in Russia the closest analog is 14th Birthday - after which a person get most of the adult rights. We don't celebrate it widely (…

Shoes day

Some time ago I've attended to a wonderful presentation! It was from Russian brand Tervolina and I adored the collection s/s15. Chic wearable, I think I'll definitely get something from it. Pretty place, extremely nice people from PR Trend who I am always happy to meet and shoe paradise.
Here are some photos from the event:




As for my outfit I've chosen orange-yellow mix which is both comfy and easy to wear. There is nothing new about - just some my fave pieces combined. I also wanted to mention my necklace from Bornpretty - how cute this charming Octopus is! easy to wear and always makes your look a little cuter. If you want to order something from Bornpretty you can also use coupon code YEET10 to get 10% discount.


This is a contribution to Share in Style. Are you in?

DVF pants

Topshop coat and jacket
Borrowed shoes from my Mom (looks like permanently)

Have a nice day, Lyosha

Giveaway to make your Brows happy

I'm extremely sorry for being off blogging for a little while. But I have something awesome for you to say I'm sorry. It's a giveaway!
This I'm hosting one of the best giveaways ever. Why? I'd love to win in it myself. It's a brow work kit. As for me makeup routine which I'm not often talking (ok, never) is mostly concentrated on my brows. It's my weakest point ever. I doubt I ever publish my brows without little touch. And when I got the opportunity to share one great brows product  from Billion Dollar I was very happy. I think it could be great opportunity to win it for gals having same issues as I do or other ladies wishing to look even better. After all, there are few things making your face look more bright and natural when fine made brows. No matter is you are blond or brunette this Billion Dollar kit would make your brows happy. Billion Dollar Brows Holiday Campaign - may be it'll be you who got this great present for upcoming holidays? ;
