By the old manor


You can never guess how your photoshoot will turn out. Sometimes it works better than you hoped and you have a hard time finding the best photos to limit the post with sane number. Sometimes it works worse and you have to pick the photos you are ok with. The funny part tiny camera screen doesn't always a creditable source for photos because on the screen it sometimes looks different, better or worse. Surely taking many photos help a lot.


This photoset wasn't easy for me because it fall into "looking great on tiny screen, not that good on computer screen" category. We tried new location and basically we definitely need to work angles to actually make it work. It's the old Pokrovskoe-Streshnevo estate, unfortunately the buildings as closed off and more or less conservation, there are no plans to restore it. The place is a bit curious though, it was bought in early Romanov reign by the brother of Tzar's wife and been in hands of the family before the soviets came. It was reconstructed many times and saw a lot of balls and famous people, including rulers of Russia (several Emperors even) and writers: Tolstoy (author of 'War and Peace' and 'Anna Karenina') lived there and met his future wife and Bulgakov ('Master and Margarita') among many others. It had definitely seen better days but you can still feel the power of it even now, looking at it from the fence. The park I often take photos in was originally the garden of the estate behind me.


I really love the skirt I am wearing. It's comfortable and has pockets! It's definitely a statement piece so I tend to tune it down with some basic top and shoes but it's colorfulness always make smile. easy to wear and pop!

  3. It's a shame that they won't keep the building in a good shape, especially that it has so much history behind it. Your skirt looks very summery and comfortable.

  4. It's true that you can only get a general sense of how a photoshoot is going while you're in the midst of it. These came out great and your skirt is so fabulous!

  11. I know what you mean! Sometimes I think I like a picture when I preview it on my camera but then I put it on my computer and I hate everything about it. But the good news is that every single photo you posted is gorgeous. You have amazing style and I love that skirt. The colours are beautiful and it moves so well!

  49. Any skirt with pockets is a huge win in my book! Especially if it looks as fun as that one does. The estate looks like an incredible place from what we can see and I loved learning a little bit about it's history.

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

Explore Starcon

I'm going to brake up vacation post series to share the Starcon experience. A week ago I was sitting on the same spot and getting ready to go. We've been to lovely Saint  Petersburgh. We managed to have a charming walk in the  evening even right after the con. Starcon was all about sci-fi and we loved it so much. We even wore the Jedi costumes (wait for them in the end of post). Max, my lovely husband, sewed them for only 3 days (that's why the design is so simple). and I also got 2d place in Star Wars Miniatures board game tournament took place there. I'm so happy! As for outfit - I've chosen a super comfy outfit with a very cool pants! I bought them on ebay and they are more than 20 year old pants (I guess soon they could buy booze on their own but I doubt I need it). I love them for their shape - keeping me cool during hot and warm when needed. Oh, and can I also call it my pijama pants trend pants? or not? What I also wanted to mention you are my fab set jewel
