Weekend getaway


Last weekend I spent magically surrounded by wonderful people traveling my all! So enjoyable.
We took off late on Friday just to be in St.-Petersburg at 5 o'clock in the morning. All this for one: to get on a bus to Finland in time. It wasn't my first time there but I haven't seen the towns we headed to. Kotka and Hamina were lovely and full of super enjoyable snow. I love how cute and neat Finnish towns are! Never the same yet bearing the sibling resemblance. We walked and walked laughing all the way. It's been years since I traveled in such a big group and enjoyed more than I planned!



Kotka and Hamina views:



















On Sunday we didn't stay in St. Petersburg for long again choosing new place again. Vyborg is an old defensive city used to be Swedish, Russian and Finnish. Its condition isn't perfect but we enjoyed walking there a lot as well. Local castle and museum left us inspired and happy (also warm, right). Our company grew even bigger and I have to admit the company makes everything look brighter. I absolutely adored the chilly experience of Vyborg as well. Oh, if only they took more care about it.
















My outfit is very warm and has more or utility than style. We traveled super lightly and didn't have anything extra we didn't need that is why outfit is practically the same both days. velvet pants totally rock for winter!




 I was wearing:
Forever 21 sweater
Monki pants, socks and top (under)
Uniqlo coat
Caterpillar boots
c/o Glassesshop glasses
c/o Zaful necklace

 

Have a nice day,
Lyosha

  32. It looks like a lot of fun in the snow. It's always fun to go some place new. Even if it's not the first time. Your outfit looks warm which is way more important then style when it's that much snow. :)

  34. It looks beautiful but are you not cold. I move from a warmer to colder city in the United states. I have anxiety everytime it snows. I would leave just my eyes out. 😂

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…

Meet: Jacqueline City

I am officially on vacation now! But even though I am enjoying myself right now I still think of you guys! So I have something nice made for you: posts! And today is definitely special. It is an interview with lovely and super talented person. Make sure to shop or at least take a look!

1 First of all tell my readers a little bit about yourself. How did you come up with your clothing line idea?

Hello, I’m Jacqueline City, a 22 year old disabled artist, petite model and entrepreneur. Ever since I was an infant, I’ve been obsessed with fashion. One of the earliest stories my mother and grandmother love telling of me as a child is when I would pull dresses down from the racks into my coach before I could ever speak. I taught myself to sew from a children’s book at about 6 or 7 and went on to get a kids sewing machine by 10. I would visit the rows of fabric stores in my hometown of Philadelphia, shopping for fabrics, buttons, and decor. The idea of a clothing collection and online store cam…
