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

Summer Boat Days

Happy Summer! Summer means boat to me. Yes technically we start during the spring (mid April) and send our boat to sleep in October but the boat is the best during summer especially when it's hot. Boat is my deep love, I love water and being by it. The feeling when you are at the whelm fills me with joy. I am so happy and so blessed to have a boat at my service. Literally my father's love to boats  definitely was inherited. During summer my husband and I often skip regular work place and stroll to the boat to work from the boat. it feels better this way, half way working, half way relaxing. I feel oddly productive there as well. I wore a simple hat and my favorite summer dress. It made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. Definitely perfect for summer and boat office. P.S. don't forget to apply some sun screen!   I was wearing: Forever 21 dress (old but deeply loved) hat bought on the street of NYC because I heeded a hat c/o Nordgreen watch bracelets made by husband

Say 'yes' to a dress with Yesbabyonline

When you start on inspiration posts it hard to spot. At least for me. I feel like I am half awake in my bed, feeling super lazy and have to strict plans for the morning so I am hitting the 'snooze' button. I almost hear myself saying 'five more minutes' and I do mean five more minutes but I fail and hit 'show me more' button. Inspiration from online shops devour me. Yes it is budget friendly (you don't need to buy things even though you do want to) but it is not safe for your time. I can't really say I am against it, it is a good to relax and is also useful if you need to wait for your partner to finish some stuff to do. This evening it works especially well because I am waiting for my husband to finish the page. I am more or less limited by time so my online inspiration will be most pleasing. As always I wanted to set up a topic to make it even better. My topic for today is long formal dresses . Out of tons of online shop I picked the best for me toda
