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.

  32. Isn't it great when you come across clothing that actually exceeds your expectations?? The jeans look great on you - if they're that comfortable, I say embrace it and wear them as often as you want!

Christmas week

Christmas is just around the corner and I am personally super happy and excited with all the decor and holiday spirit around. I totally feel it and enjoy it a lot. I took this photo doing Christmas shopping with my mom. We shared lots of laughs, girly talks and did the present buying job. I have a soft spot for Christmas and holidays I know how to celebrate (decoration and dressing up are my main loves) so I can't really pass the beauties there. I asked my mother to take a quick shot of mine and even took off my mask for a minute for it to look the best. Don't worry, there was literally no one around (it's just opened) and I was changing my mask anyway. Bonus: a part of our tree and lemon cakes from last weekend I was wearing: Arny Praht backpack Uniqlo jeans Fila sneakers not branded and very old sweater   Have a nice day, Lyosha  

I love this sweater

  Did you ever have this moment? You walk into the shop and you see the item and.. you see this item only, everything else is blank and the next moment you are buying it. That is exactly what happened to me. I love this sweater so much! It's so cute! I love the bright and vibrant blue color and absolutely ridiculous and uber cute dog (they say it's a dog) or at least someone canine. I think I will wear this sweater all the time mixing it with Christmas alpaca sweater and fox sweater from the same brand. I also wear classic winter patterns as well but it's not fun enough at least to me. Also I think bright blue looks wonderful with white snow, don't you think? I originally took these photo for instagram Nivea review. I don't plan on turning this post into full term review but I can say this xxl face wash edition is pretty nice. I use face wash very often (I wash my face after every walk outside and especially after visiting public place because of you-know-what thr

Sergiev Posad trip

First trip this year. And with friends. I have visited this town many times and it's still lovely. I'd say the point of this trip was to get out of home and familiar places to enjoy something remotely like a trip. We did want to look for something distant or hard to get to or even taking a lot of time to get to. SO we have chosen Sergiev Posad. This town is closely tied with Russian Orthodox Church having tons of temples and a monastery. I highly recommend to visit it because they have a super delicious bakery inside, not a joke really. The museums were closed and it was a bit cold outside but we walked a lot anyway. And had a fine meal together. If you ask me, it is very close to perfection. As for my outfit... I wanted to keep warm, that is why it looks a lot like what I wear to walk my dogs, lol. I tried to make it all look more pretty with long scarf (I have a soft sot for it) and cute mittens. But that's it really. I was wearing: H&M scarf Tommy Hilfiger b
