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.

I was wearing:
Monki bikini


Have a nice day,

  1. Wow, that bikini looks really beautiful. The prints are so perfect for this season and it looks really comfortable to wear and aside from that it really looks good on you.

  2. I'm so digging that swimsuit. I love my body after years of dislike, I've come to accept it the way it is. Perfectly perfect.

  3. Love the bikini! I think posting pictures in bikini's are fine and we should all love our bodies however 'different' we think they may be.

  4. I love that bikini! The bright yellow is such a happy colour, and the print is bold but beautiful!

  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.

  11. Gorgeous retro bikini in beautiful colours! you look lovely in it :-)

  12. There is such a great inspiring and important message here. You look really great in your bikini!

  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..

  17. It is important to be comfortable with one's body image. Your post will inspire many and hope will make them feel ok, not matter how they think other think of them.

  18. Love the bikini. It has a lovely design. I would love to be on a boat right now. Way too warm where I am.

  19. What a cute swim suit! I adore the colors, and I am really digging the high waisted trend at the moment. Adorable!

  20. Super cute! I like the yellow, it's so cheerful. Sounds like you are having a fun summer! We've had a fun summer camping, boating and just enjoying the sunshine.

  21. congrats on getting that licence girl. Also, you look stunning on your bikinis.

  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

Детские Мечты

I do love it when social and fashionable is combined. When fashion show is held for reason the fashion shines brighter. What is why I was so exited when I found out about fashion charity Maraphone 'Kids Dreams' ("Детские Мечты") I realized I couldn't miss it. Because it was all about kids dreams, orphan kids dreams which were made an outfit for by other kids from the whole Russia. So important. To make it real designer kids combined their forces with various kids fashion brands both focused primary on kids fashion and major brands with kids branches. Each look was unique. Also there were a lot of wonderful celebrities which contributed a lot the whole show both acting like models and making show with songs.

During this year I tried new things. I did beauty reviews (and started admiring beauty bloggers job even more), visited art openings (and hope to do it more often in future), makeup artists contests and more. Even though fashion is my primary interest I can't say I'm not happy to get to experience other lifestyle moments. Then I was offered to visit Punchline, Moscow based stand-up comedy festival I didn't think twice and decided to take part. And you know what? I laughed sooo hard! It was definitely a week of laughter to me and I believe I added a couple of years to my lifespan. Even though stand-up is not actually about photos I made some to share the atmosphere. 

My outfit for my first day was simple enough and casual at most. I really wanted to go for something pretty and simple, also may be a little funny. Comfortable heels, funny t-shirt and a hat did the job, don't you think?

Have a nice day, Lyosha

The Fabrika is my favorite fashion project in Moscow. I really love the competition format, super friendly atmosphere and alway new refreshing approach to making an event. For second part of second tour we got to see collections of designers Masha Goryacheva, Nikita Okishev, Sonita Filipova. The place Squat 3/4 was superb! I had a truly remarkable europian bar atmosphere and felt totally recharged attending. You could pick any place you like (any bar you like as well) to watch the shows. Here are the highlights:
RU: The Fabrika - мой любимый модный проект Москвы. Мне очень нравится соревновательный момент, крайне дружеская атмосфера и всегда новый подход при устроении мероприятия. Во второй части второго тура мы увидели коллекции дизайнеров Никиты Окишева, Маши Горячевой и Сониты Филлиповой  локация Squat 3/4 шикарная! Чувствуется легкая по-европейски расслабленная атмосфера, я прекрасно отдохнула и зарядилась эмоциями! Можно было выбрать из множества точек (или барных стоек) для просм…
