Chicken Bikini

What do you think about your body image? Do you want to change it? Do you want to change bodies of people around you? Do you think comments on looks are acceptable? I am not talking about fashion/style bloggers or any other more or less public figures or even trainer in your gym; instead I speak of regular people. Would you approach to someone to ask about this person's body?
Lately there are a lot of talks about fat shaming. If you are overweight you might have lots of reason to be so including but not limited your own liking. But as I feel it triggered the opposite outcome - skinny shaming. People for some reason feel OK to tell any skinny person to go eat something or implying 'bones are disgusting'. I don't personally understand why people tend to judge whatever. We do all have different eyes and feelings.
Why did I shared my opinion? It's pretty simple. Today I discussed with a friend of mine posting of bikini photos. She wasn't sure if you wanted to post it to her Instagram (by the way, check my Instagram profile too) because she was afraid someone might comment her body badly. I think there is nothing wrong with our bodies in bikini: skinny, overweight, sporty, chubby, with stretchmarks, scars etc. Each body is beautiful in its own natural way. It is unique and unique is always beautiful!
To support that thought I am posting my own bikini look. In fact I am absolutely crazy about this bikini, it's sooo cute! A little bit vintage styled, very bright and super comfy.

P.S. photos above  were taken during my fantastic trip in May-June. It is Zurich lake, my first swim of a year. You might have already seen this photo because I posted it in my Instagram here

And these are the latest shots from Moscow. I took them on a boat. And starting from Wednesday boats are way more inside my daily life! I passed an exam for driving license for a boat. Yay! In two weeks I'll get the card and will be able to use boat all by myself. I wish it could be faster but it's ok as I will be on vacation starting from August 3d.

  5. That bikini is so cute! Yeah skinny shaming can be bad too. I think overall as long as your healthy, there shouldn't be any problems.

  6. You did make a valid point about body shaping. people can pint at any flaw in anyone. But hey we are humans arent we? We were not meant to be perfect!

  7. I LOOOOOVE that bikini. Super retro and adorable - and you're totally rocking it! Yes - I'm so tired of judgement and opinion, and I am sadly always so aware and nervous about what other people's opinions are. Fat and skinny shaming, and any kind of shaming are absolutely unnecessary and so hurtful. Good for you for doing your thang!

  8. Wow! Congratulations on getting your license. It is very exciting to be able to "drive" a boat. So excited for you.

  10. Every body is beautiful in its own way, I completely agree. It is very sad that our societies tolerate body shaming. Skinny shaming is very present these days, it's crazy how many people think it is o.k to verbally attack someone just because they are slim or skinny. Many Slavic girls are naturally skinny, that's just how we are, it's no reason for criticism.


    I do love that bikini, it's very pretty. You look great! Congrats for getting a boat driving licence. I love being on a boat.

  13. What a fun and colourful bikini! Congrats on passing the boat license exam too!

    I don't think we should comment on bodies - I think we should be kind and build people up rather than tearing them down. My mum always told me 'if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything' and some people could follow that advice, haha!

    Hope that you are having a great weekend :) It's a quiet one here again, we caught another winter bug unfortunately!

  14. I cant explain how much better I feel after reading your post, thankyou for posting a picture of your self . I am terribly underweight for my age and everyone around me picks on me for being tiny and skinny

  15. It is so easy for people to judge what they quickly see. You're right. There is no need for fat shamming or skinny shamming, but no matter what it will happen just the same. I really appreciate this piece and LOVE the swimsuit!

  16. that's a good point, sometimes people comments are really mean and impact to other people confidential. Well, we just need to be confident then. We can't make everybody love us righ..

  22. Aww indeed, I like your bikini design :D Especially the bright colors. No matter what people say though, I am fat and I have curves in the wrong places. They are not flattering. But I don't really care. I just don't want to wear skimpy swimsuits because I look awful hahaha I try to look for ones that enhance my figure. :D

  23. I agree with your comments about fat shaming and skinny shaming - it's not about what other people think of you, it's about how comfortable you feel in your own skin! x

Say 'yes' to a dress with Yesbabyonline

When you start on inspiration posts it hard to spot. At least for me. I feel like I am half awake in my bed, feeling super lazy and have to strict plans for the morning so I am hitting the 'snooze' button. I almost hear myself saying 'five more minutes' and I do mean five more minutes but I fail and hit 'show me more' button. Inspiration from online shops devour me. Yes it is budget friendly (you don't need to buy things even though you do want to) but it is not safe for your time. I can't really say I am against it, it is a good to relax and is also useful if you need to wait for your partner to finish some stuff to do. This evening it works especially well because I am waiting for my husband to finish the page. I am more or less limited by time so my online inspiration will be most pleasing. As always I wanted to set up a topic to make it even better. My topic for today is long formal dresses. Out of tons of online shop I picked the best for me today…

So cold!

Winter sure is a harsh season for any person living in the northern parts of the world. The temperature hits below 0 C, there is a lot of snow and such... It might be tempting to pretend to be a bear and stay at home doing nothing. But you definitely shouldn't do that. Relax, go out and do your best to enjoy the current weather. Or at least make yourself move as fast as possible to move from point A to point B and enjoy your life when you are finally at the place of destination. The key is to get dressed properly. Try more layers or use very warm items. Also thermal underwear (the simplest and cheapest being Heattech from Uniqlo) might help a lot. As for me I mix warmer items, layering and smart materials to achieve the best result.


Today I post my little outfit I wore on Friday. Met with my family, did some shopping and went to gym. Overall I was spending a fair amount of time outside so I needed to stay warm. Surely being a blogger I couldn't avoid desire to still look pret…

Kylie for lips: the review

Not long ago I posted about NYX lipsticks (you can read my review here). I actually liked my little beauty blogger efforts. I am definitely not switching to it, no worries and definitely do not aim for being trustworthy I just talk about what I like.
A lot of people I know say they like Kylie cosmetics and I longed to give it a try. The thing is I am not really that much of makeup person and I don't own a lot of items about it. But when I offered a try by Wordmakeup I couldn't resist. Long story short: I liked it. And here is why.
The lipstick shades are basic so it is easy to incorporate it in day to day life. Especially as it is cold outside so lips need extra protection. The texture is creamy and shades are bright to make a difference. It lasts long enough but definitely will not survive eating or drinking without a straw. No problem I like reapplying!
As for Wordmakeup I am very pleased with delivery dates, it arrieves at your door and a bit fast. Pleased!

I did not test…
