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.

  9. That's awesome that you can now officially drive a boat. Congratulations! Love the yellow print on the bikini!

  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

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

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

Kids Fashion Week

ENG: Yesterday on the 8th of March I celebrated Women's Day the best way possible: I attended a Fashion Show. And to make it even more special and beautiful it was a Kids Fashion Show or fashion shows even because I could see a lot of brands presented the collections during the event. I have admit producer center 'Grani' outdid themselves. It took place in Central Kids' Department Store, beautiful and famous old building filled with everything your kid might desire. RU: Вчера в день 8 марта, я отметила Международный Женский День самым лучшим образом для меня: я посетила показ мод. И даже ещё лучше: это был показ детской моды в рамках Kids Fashion Week, самой полной и отвественно неделе детской моды. Надо признать, продюсерский центр "Грани" превзошли даже смелые ожидания, работая над этим праздником моды. Показов было множество, равно как и брендов, представивших свои коллекции на любой случай для маленьких модников и модниц. Проходило это мероприятие в Цент
