Smart, not paying attention


Instagram and Facebook were down last week. I didn't notice. How crazy is that! I normally spend quite a number of time in there but the day I decided to take a break and deducate myself o something offline and super fun (with very limited internet in the building) insta and facebbok were not working. Shortly: best timing ever.
I have spent the girls day out with my beautiful mother. We went to the gallery and enjoyed every bit of culture and beautiful painings. One of my favorite artists (Vrubel) collection is big in there. Enjoyed the fullest. 

But I am standing next memorable painting for me. When I was in school I wrote a paper on the painitng and artist. It is Karl Brullov's probably most famous piece. Portait of his friend's daughters. I wanted to have my picture next to it because I felt so very nostalgic that moment.


By the way, do you like me wearing a long skirt? I rarely do because I am short. That is why this long skirt brings so much fun and joy to me. I really look good in it and it makes me wear it very often lately. And as I wanted to look adorable I added a top with floral collar, probably the cutest piece I have. Glasses are a must for me in the museums to see better. Not very big bag is a great add when you need to carry your documents, wallet, keys and phone. Very comfy.


I was wearing:
Oasis top
love Moschino bag
Jil Sander boots
Uniqlo skirt
c/o Glassesshop glasses

 

Have a nice day,
Lyosha

  1. A lovely day out with your mom enjoying some beautiful art is certainly a much better way to pass your time than Instagram and Facebook. I only notice that there was an outage when all my friends were freaking out. I don't use either enough to care myself.

  24. It's great you were able to spend the day doing something special with your mom! It's so important to disconnect from social media once in a while-although it's hard to do!! Beautiful dress! I was going to comment on that before you asked!

Deodorant Battle

It's not that I don't have a new travel post really but I want to mix thing up a little and add beauty post. Yes I will never be a beauty blogger but I do enjoy some beauty stuff and I love posting about it on my social media. Why not do it here from time to time. My blog - my rules. So here I am posting about deodorants. It was curious for me as I was send two options of the same line: spray and roll. Which one is better? I tested!

Spray dries faster and the scent is slightly less which I love. However I am never sure if I covered everything and also still not sure if spray is such a good option ecologywise.
Roll is can take more! I mean it, I ran almost 15 km with it and my armpits were actually the only dry spots I had (oops! disgusting, I know).

Each is awesome stain wise, even my black yoga pants went through bakasana which is always an issue with products. Generally I did like both products. Will probably stick to roll though, I mostly need deodorant for sports and it makes…

Joy of Music and Clothes

I went on a date yesterday. And listened to the music. Philharmonic is our favorite and I believe we haven't visited since before the pandemic happen, it was around February when we last visited, we missed the love sounds so music so much. We had to take all the precautions and there were way less people then usual (only half of the seats were possible and some areas were locked off completely) but it is the new normal and I am all for it. Bonus points for us meeting next to the concert hall so it felt like a date of not married/living together couple. We normally go on a date from home and are together the whole time. And the date was followed by a sweet cake and tea which make the night perrfect. I missed such days so much!



I was gifted with this top by Dear-Lover and I really like it. But if you are to order it consider going size down. Mine was too roomy. I will be wearing it home for relaxed look and for workouts (it is from sport material so it's great for it) but despit…

Zaraysk 2020

August gave so much energy and so many emotions over traveling. Close and far, to new places and not. Last week we have been to Zaraysk, a small town with big story some 150 km from Moscow (still same region though, Russia is big). We have been there last year but we loved it there so much we wanted to come back. And we had o chance to skip it as we are doing Running Series this year and want to run in each possible start this year. We registered on each successfully so all we need now is to actually complete the run.
Zaraysk was first mentioned in 1146 so it's technically older than Moscow. Originally it was a bordertown. Compact but effective fortress (or Kremlin in old-fashioned Russian way)  was built to protect the Ryazan Duchy and later on Great Moscow Duchy from the Tatars. Well this particular Tatar girl thinks she could call this trip a tie or one more win for Zaraysk. Kremlin looks very lively there and my favorite spot, the 1916  water tower gives great view. Bonus poin…
