Russian ECo Week part 1


I think it's vital we protect our home. Not only the place you live in on bigger scale. I'm not a big talker about ecological matters - I am no guru in trying your best to live with eco-awareness and not someone who just discovered each of you can actually do something and is eager to pass on new knowledge. But I do what I can with little steps I am making everyday like not using paper as much as I can: no plastic bags, choosing recycled products, switching of water while brushing my teeth etc. But in terms of spreading the eco-awareness I do what I can do best: attending Russian Eco Week, listening to smart people talks, watching eco fashion shows (which is a topic I will show more closely) and showing it to you. This year Eco Fashion Week did not unfortunately fully happened but we still are able to see some part of it through Russia Eco Week. For example right after the opening ceremony general public and journalists seen the MKMM (the contest for young designers) showing their eco themed fashion shows! I was most impressed with number of ideas and clothes made from recycled components (I didn't fully understand what exactly was made of and what actually was recycled). Also I just have to highlight and especially mention collection made of dog fur. It must be so warm!

RU: Защита своего дома - необходимость. И не только то место, где ты живешь, но и нечто более, как я думаю. Я редко говорю на темы экологии, но не потому что они меня не волнуют, а потому что не являюсь ни гуру по вопросам осознанной экологичности жизни, ни неофитом, который только осознал важность проблемы и стремится поделиться знаниями. Но в повседневной жизни я делаю свои маленькие шажки постоянно: отсутствие пластиковых пакетов, приоритет преработанным материалам, контроль использования воды (например, во время чистки зубов) и так далее. Что касается распространения экологически этичной жизни я делаю то, что я могу делать лучше всего: посещаю мероприятия такие как Российская Экологическая Неделя, слушаю доклады, смотрю показы этичной моды (на этом я остановлюсь чуть ниже) и показываю это вам, мои читатели. В этом сезоне, к сожалению, полноценной Недели Экологической моды не случилось, однако часть ещё прошла в рамках Российской Экологической Недели у стен Кремля. Например, сразу после открытия заинтересованные в вопросах экологии жители города и журналисты видели показ в рамках конкурса молодых дизайнеров МКММ, который был посвящен экологии и этичной моде. Я была поражена количеством идей и одежды, сделанной из переработанных компоненов (не всегда, однако было полностью понятно, какие менно части выполнены из переработанных метериалов). Ещё я прямо-таки чувствую себя обязанной отметить коллекцию, сделанную из собачьей шерсти. Это должно быть так тепло!


















As for my outfit I picked a warm sweatshirt, warm pants, coat and a hat because it's already fall and spending an hour and a half taking photos almost without a motion is tricky if you want to stay healthy.
RU: Мой образ состоял из теплого свитера, теплых брюк, пальто и шляпы, потому что осень полностью вступила в свои права в Москве, а провести полтора часа, делая фотографии и наслаждаясь показом практически без движения, не так и просто, особенно, если ты заботишься о своё здоровье.




I was wearing:
Calvin Klein bag and sweatshirt
Uniqlo jeans
Mango coat
thriefted boots (from Amsterdam)
not branded (yet my favorite) cap

 

Have a nice day,

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

Explore Starcon

I'm going to brake up vacation post series to share the Starcon experience. A week ago I was sitting on the same spot and getting ready to go. We've been to lovely Saint  Petersburgh. We managed to have a charming walk in the  evening even right after the con. Starcon was all about sci-fi and we loved it so much. We even wore the Jedi costumes (wait for them in the end of post). Max, my lovely husband, sewed them for only 3 days (that's why the design is so simple). and I also got 2d place in Star Wars Miniatures board game tournament took place there. I'm so happy! As for outfit - I've chosen a super comfy outfit with a very cool pants! I bought them on ebay and they are more than 20 year old pants (I guess soon they could buy booze on their own but I doubt I need it). I love them for their shape - keeping me cool during hot and warm when needed. Oh, and can I also call it my pijama pants trend pants? or not? What I also wanted to mention you are my fab set jewel
