Imatra, Finland

I have a habit of posting my past trips while I am on vacation traveling somewhere. Guess what: I am on vacation again. This time cycling around Bodensee. 

This short day trip was very important to me. I was the first I taken all by myself in a long time. Sure it was exciting! I traveled solo and it made me a little nervoius too. It went awesomely and I did enjoy sometime alone with myself and little border town of Imatra.
Imatra has a long history of beautiful nature love, having a long established park area. And a beautiful waterfall turned power station which attracted (unfortunately) suicidal people for many years. Thankfully nowadays with power station working nobody jumps off the waterfall there. But there is a monument to remember those poor souls including the local dame ghost. For me it was all about the big lake, pretty rocks and the sky.
By the way, Imatra was popular with Russian Empire people during the period of Finland being a part of old Russia. In Imatra those memories are strong. The most famous building, the hotel fortress was build for Russian Empress Ekatherina's visit, there are recreational areas in the park built for Russian Emperor and his wife and there is also an attraction of huge rocks where Russian nobles wrote their names (old fashioned graffiti style) which is funny for russian person like me to read. Overall, it was a day to remember.

As it was hot I wore a short top. Jeans and shoes I needed as I knew about the park and I knew I will be tempted to explore off road. It was so worthy! By the way, do you like my photos? I used rocks and timer to make it.





And some sights not only with me:

Estet Fashion Week 2021

During my time of being a blogger I hardly missed Estet Fashion Week. This year was regular in that matter, I attended it as well. Actually I am quite happy I did because I spent most of it on Zanzibar island, enjoy my sunny vacation. It was actually worthy of reduction of fashion experiences. But I was very excited to mix the two joys and still watch Estet Fashion Week and look through the styles. This time I watched gown show by Indira Badiyar who takes specialty is formal and evening dresses and super adorable kids fashion show by Oksana Kazakova inspired by vintage pieces. I have to admit I enjoyed both. My outfit is not as cool or fancy as I would want it to be mainly because after my vacation with very simple and effortless looks I didn't feel like wearing too much items, opting for simplicity. Also my skin on hands is not perfect so I wanted to cover it. It also severely limits my options of clothes because I mostly have my hands bare. It was comfortable though, I f

Lingerie Fashion Week 2

Hello! Being a lingerie girl I have spent 10 hours on lingerie fashion and, man, it was a blast! I made some good shopping (special points for bra trade-in program: yes you have heard me right, to encourage females to use only proper well fitting bras on Lingerie Fashion Week you could give up on old bra and have a discount to buy a new one. Very professional consultants will help you to find a good pair for you, making a shortened and simplified version of bra-fitting. Surely you can buy bra all by yourself especially if you read a book about bra-fitting Lingerie Fashion Week organizers created and published a year ago. By the way, this season i was gifted with the book and now I know and understand lingerie even more). In my post before I told I had too much content to share in just one post so I have decided to split it in two. Here it is: the second part. The big night Lingerie Fashion Show from Lingerie Fashion Week, titled Cyberpunk.

All the snow

We have a super cold winter this year. and amount of snow is insane! This week alone made a normal January portion with extra. It feels like warmer than usual last winter decided to join forces with this one. Long story short I am very tired of cold and snow and all that. Give me some spring and happiness!    This outfit is super warm, I have many layers and it works. I wore this outfit to my yoga class and back I wear my entire yoga uniform under as if it was thermal underwear. Actual thermal underwear works better but it was a working substitute which also allowed me to save some space in my bag. I was wearing: Befree jeans Jil Sander boots Arny Praht bag Tommy Hilfiger sweater c/o Rosegal pompom hat Monki coat   Have a nice day, Lyosha
