Volokolamsk trip

Remember I told you about small trip? After we ran on Sunday (my post before shared my experience and outfit) we took time to visit bigger location, town of Volokolamsk just 6 km from the start area. The town is pretty old and it has kremlin. Sounds like a must visit if you pass by! It was first mentioned as Volok Lamsky in 1135 and it was exactly what it was called: a land transfer way for boats from one river to the others. The biggest is called Lama. As simple as that. The kremlin isn’t big and original walls didn’t live up today being built of wood. You can still enjoy the moats and brisk arch/entrance followed by narrow stairs. The inner buildings are mostly churches and the museum. I’d say you’ll need an hour and a half to explore everything in the area.






I wore new jeans. I didn’t think it would such a great fit on me. I originally tried it on as a gag. Now I barely want to take it off (traded it for a dress though). I had other things to do scheduled for the day so I am all about comfort. The top I am wearing is one of my ultimate faves because of the material, it’s a rare item for me as I have it multiple (three) colors.



This post is not complete without some sights. enjoy.









This a wolf from the museum. It was the last thing you see in the museum (it's by the exit) and is super funny.


I was wearing:
Monki top
Befree jeans
Fila sneakers
Volokolamsky rubezh medal

 

Have a nice day,

  6. Looks like a really fun experience checking out the Kremlin and the churches of Volokolamsk. Glad those jeans were comfortable and flexible for taking all of the pictures of the amazing looking buildings and church. Nothing worse than a tight pair of pants.
    By the way, that wolf has the craziest teeth!

    1. I knew I should post the wolf. As for architecture such roofs are not common, mostly the roofs are flat, the similar shape for roofs is mainly used for churches. That is definitely unique.

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
