Karelia

I just got back from the vacation. Needless to say I want more. I had tons of fun running a half-maraton (I hit my planned time and even been a little faster than I wanted to, I allowed myself to run freely without much focus). We have spent two days with our friend wandering around St. Petersburg, visiting railroad museum and such (I'll post about this museum as a separate post because it is fantastic for train lovers such as me). And finally we enjoyed the beautiful nature of Karelia. The views there are super special and very attractive. I love the grim, brutal beauty of rocks and firs. We visited the remaining pagan holy places and touched the megalithic rocks, wondering what the ancestors were thinking back than, what I hoped for and prayed for and if we do it the right way. It was absolutely magical and beautiful! I wish I had more time to spend there.




I wore what I call comfortable clothes: roomy t-shirt. Roomy jeans and sneakers (the latter are actually were taken off pretty fast as I went barefeet. I added some braids in my hair, lots of bracelets (including the bracelets I got 20 years ago in Turkey). Do you like this relaxed look?

But This can't really be a complete post without tons of natre photos. Don't worry too much, I'll limit myself a little bit. I wish photos could capture beauty better.











Enjoy the view! I want to come back there already

I was wearing:
Befree top (still available in stores) and jeans
Fila sneakers
bracelet stack: handmade by yours truly and her better half, about 20 year old bracelets from Turkey trip
Certina watch (a gift from my parents)
necklace souvenir from my honeymoon trip to Canary islands
Have a nice day,
Lyosha

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

Fairy Tale, part 5. Prague

Blast! I'm starting with Max and mine photo together. As usual we have it on only one spot but the nice guy we asked to shoot us take 3 photos. here is the closest version. It's very sad to say good bye to Czech Republic again. It's my last post about this  wonderful  country this time. May be there would be more one day. Prague is very pretty and even though we have met before the Czech capital showed me some more of her  beauties . Max and I always travel on foot so that we can see more and feel more. The place I'm writing for is the Vojanovy sady as Google Maps adviced. It's in the historic center next to the Prague hrad. We found it a very calm and peaceful place. The only thing that sounded weird  to us is that there were not allowed to walk with dogs. Some  minutes  in this lovely place passed and we have found the reason The peacocks are walking freely there and we had a great joy seeing them walking in the park without any guards in the middle of

CPM

CPM always marks a start of fashion season and I am always excited to participate! It makes me feel awesome to finally understand the start of fashion season and live fashion shows. I hope there will be a number of it! Because nothing beats an actual experience. Today I want share with you a day on CPM. It was tons of fun and joy to me. After all I got to see a fashion show there with tons of lingerie fashion, swim- and beach-wear. The colors and the mood was excellent. (by the way, if you wan to see it move you can check the video of it in my Instagram account here )     My outfit featured my new favorite skirt. It is so comfortable and sexy at the same time! Just perfect to me. I added a sweater to it because it was a little cold and it felt it's gonna rain soon.Comfortable shoes allowed me to walk fast and a lot and a backpack held everything I needed. It's safe to say I mostly played it safe with one statement item (my skirt) and choosing comfort for everything else.
