Chicken Bikini

What do you think about your body image? Do you want to change it? Do you want to change bodies of people around you? Do you think comments on looks are acceptable? I am not talking about fashion/style bloggers or any other more or less public figures or even trainer in your gym; instead I speak of regular people. Would you approach to someone to ask about this person's body?
Lately there are a lot of talks about fat shaming. If you are overweight you might have lots of reason to be so including but not limited your own liking. But as I feel it triggered the opposite outcome - skinny shaming. People for some reason feel OK to tell any skinny person to go eat something or implying 'bones are disgusting'. I don't personally understand why people tend to judge whatever. We do all have different eyes and feelings.
Why did I shared my opinion? It's pretty simple. Today I discussed with a friend of mine posting of bikini photos. She wasn't sure if you wanted to post it to her Instagram (by the way, check my Instagram profile too) because she was afraid someone might comment her body badly. I think there is nothing wrong with our bodies in bikini: skinny, overweight, sporty, chubby, with stretchmarks, scars etc. Each body is beautiful in its own natural way. It is unique and unique is always beautiful!
To support that thought I am posting my own bikini look. In fact I am absolutely crazy about this bikini, it's sooo cute! A little bit vintage styled, very bright and super comfy.

P.S. photos above  were taken during my fantastic trip in May-June. It is Zurich lake, my first swim of a year. You might have already seen this photo because I posted it in my Instagram here

And these are the latest shots from Moscow. I took them on a boat. And starting from Wednesday boats are way more inside my daily life! I passed an exam for driving license for a boat. Yay! In two weeks I'll get the card and will be able to use boat all by myself. I wish it could be faster but it's ok as I will be on vacation starting from August 3d.

  5. That bikini is so cute! Yeah skinny shaming can be bad too. I think overall as long as your healthy, there shouldn't be any problems.

  6. You did make a valid point about body shaping. people can pint at any flaw in anyone. But hey we are humans arent we? We were not meant to be perfect!

  7. I LOOOOOVE that bikini. Super retro and adorable - and you're totally rocking it! Yes - I'm so tired of judgement and opinion, and I am sadly always so aware and nervous about what other people's opinions are. Fat and skinny shaming, and any kind of shaming are absolutely unnecessary and so hurtful. Good for you for doing your thang!

  8. Wow! Congratulations on getting your license. It is very exciting to be able to "drive" a boat. So excited for you.

  9. That's awesome that you can now officially drive a boat. Congratulations! Love the yellow print on the bikini!

  10. Every body is beautiful in its own way, I completely agree. It is very sad that our societies tolerate body shaming. Skinny shaming is very present these days, it's crazy how many people think it is o.k to verbally attack someone just because they are slim or skinny. Many Slavic girls are naturally skinny, that's just how we are, it's no reason for criticism.


    I do love that bikini, it's very pretty. You look great! Congrats for getting a boat driving licence. I love being on a boat.

  12. There is such a great inspiring and important message here. You look really great in your bikini!

  13. What a fun and colourful bikini! Congrats on passing the boat license exam too!

    I don't think we should comment on bodies - I think we should be kind and build people up rather than tearing them down. My mum always told me 'if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything' and some people could follow that advice, haha!

    Hope that you are having a great weekend :) It's a quiet one here again, we caught another winter bug unfortunately!

  14. I cant explain how much better I feel after reading your post, thankyou for posting a picture of your self . I am terribly underweight for my age and everyone around me picks on me for being tiny and skinny

  15. It is so easy for people to judge what they quickly see. You're right. There is no need for fat shamming or skinny shamming, but no matter what it will happen just the same. I really appreciate this piece and LOVE the swimsuit!

  16. that's a good point, sometimes people comments are really mean and impact to other people confidential. Well, we just need to be confident then. We can't make everybody love us righ..

  22. Aww indeed, I like your bikini design :D Especially the bright colors. No matter what people say though, I am fat and I have curves in the wrong places. They are not flattering. But I don't really care. I just don't want to wear skimpy swimsuits because I look awful hahaha I try to look for ones that enhance my figure. :D

  23. I agree with your comments about fat shaming and skinny shaming - it's not about what other people think of you, it's about how comfortable you feel in your own skin! x

Hyper Casual

I took a short walk to see my parents and took these photos on a way. Can't really say much about this outfit, I didn't try to make it an outfit per se but photos turned out so nice I decided to share it with you. And frankly I've been a little lazy on creating content as of late so I am trying to compensate it in a way and in future. I promise to make lots and lots of awesome photos for you to enjoy in blog my blog and socials. Sometimes I think I should have blogged about my dogs' adventures, they always have something exciting happening. But than I realized it's not like it in the end of the day.

As there are less and less limitation tied with the pandemic we are super excited to have a first run 'race' this season on August 2d. It will also be in a town I have never been to so I am also excited to have a small trip. And talking about the excitement we booked a small trip to St. Petersburg and Russian Karelia later in August. And as a fini…

Boat office

During the hot days I want to spend more time next to the water. And as my father owns a boat and is willing to lend it to us from time to time we can't stay away from it. But after the lockdown there are so many things we want to catch up on or have to do we don't have extra time just to enjoy our selves. So we thought a little and decided to combine two passions in one.I won't lie, it feels great. Water makes any heat more tolerable and being able to take a break swimming definitely feels special. Also boat makes such a different perspective on everything, you feel different and somehow rested.

There are two outfits featured here. One is a very simple and beloved dress from Forever21. I wear on cycling trips and during the relaxed days and I am pretty sure it will last for a season or two more before it falls off being ripped and torn. The second outfit is a beach dress, which I used to cover up my bikini. I didn't have that much work that day, so I enjoyed more swi…

Pigeon House

Man, these days are packed with events and things to do. I am balancing doing all the needfull stuff and still find time to relax and enjoy. I apologize my blog took beating last week and I didn't post my regular Friday/Saturday update. It's only natural.





This photoshoot took me around 5 minutes to do but I love the mood of it. I wore comfortable skirt, top and a jacket as it was rainy that day and the wind felt cold. I wore this outfit to hang out with my Dad one on one which we don't do often. I really enjoyed chatting and laughing with him over a cup of coffee. We should do it more often.


Wishing you the best week possible. Enjoy a little extra real life pigeon who provided camera settings service for my hubby. Check out his expression! So bold!
I was wearing:
Skirt, bag and 'Hello Kitty' top from Uniqlo
Jacket c/o Rosegal
Armani jeans shoes
Monki avocado socks (I have tons of avocado related stuff to be honest)

Have a nice day, Lyosha
