Happy New Year!

In Russia New Year celebrations are major and a lot of people have some time off. For me it also means meeting with friends and following the traditions. One of said traditions is an early run on January the 1st. It is call a run of commitment or promise or resolutions. We gather with some other runners (this year due to we-all-know-what there were over 50 spots on maps of Moscow, on average there were 15 people on a run so it was easy to keep the distance), write on number plate without an actual number and run for as many meters as the new year. It actually works, well, mostly. I always write something about basement but we haven't yet did up will our desires yet. May be 2021 will make it different for my basement. My resolution trick is to write things I want to achieve but I can work on. So if I want to do something I want to move forward to completing it, even if I couldn't make it in the end, I can see how much I improved or moved forward. It makes me happy as well. I don't think I will be very active this week forward but I will try to show my face a little more online.






 

Have a nice day,

  5. Keeping a list of goals is a great way to stay on top of working towards them, even if you only make a list on the new year. Good luck on the basement, you'll get it done!

  6. Yes! I'm the same way, I don't want to make resolutions that I won't keep, but work towards something to make me feel like I've accomplished something.

  18. Happy New Year! I had to convert 2021 meters into miles because it seemed like a lot for this non-runner (bad knees). But it wasn't too bad once I saw the numbers LOL I am glad you all had a good time! Again, Happy New year!

  30. Happy new year, Lyosha! I hope 2021 is amazing for you and your husband. My new year was far less exciting than yours. I spent it at home in my pajamas with my cat. Lol. But I did get to go outside and see some fireworks nearby, and I really enjoyed that. I am excited to see what this year brings for all of us.

  31. Happy New Year! I love this tradition, it's such a fun way to kick off the year on a positive note. We always go for our 'first day hike' where we pick a random local trail to hike with the pups. Getting out with nature has been a major source of peace and tranquility for my husband and I, so it allows us to start the year with the right mindset.

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

Not real outfit

I am SO lazy! I'm into meeting with friends and family, outdoor activities (we tried sup boards and loved it) and boat. Generally, it's mostly the boat. We get up early, walk the dogs, run and than get back to work. I also received my second shot and, oh my, brain fog is real. I wanted to update my blog anyway so I am posting photos I took during the last weekend. It's not really an outfit it's simply a cute dress I wore. To be honest I don't really feel like outfits lately, simply throwing some dress and go. I promise I will wear and take photos of this dress properly styled or something I was wearing: new and fantastically comfortable dress from Befree Certina watch handmade bracelets Border Collie Surak accessory   Have a nice day, Lyosha  

Summer = picnics

I can definitely dub summer 2021 as picnic summer. It's been a half of it and we spend a lot of time picnicking. It's actually is a great change of pace and feels super peaceful. Surely our local park is to blame. We now have a big list of foods we love for picnic and things we better avoid. It makes me feel relaxed and sometimes makes me feel even more special. This time I really want to dress up a little. Lately we started having short rains almost every day which highly limits places for comfortable picnicking for example, this spot. It is actually a little isolated so every time we relax here it feels very private. This dress is one my favorites. I bought it on random on ebay some 10 years ago and never regretted it. I wear it several times a summer and always feel fantastic. It's silk and has a built in undergarment which makes it a little hot to wear during a hot day but who cares as long as I chill in the shadow and feel fantastic! I was wearing: bcbgmaxazari
