Latvian minute


I am on a short trip to ST. Pete's to accompany my husband on programming conference. Actually he is working and I am walking around the places, go on a guided tour and generally enjoy myself. And yes I envy myself too.
As I always do when I am away today I am sharing with my travel experience the post about my past vacation. It was a glorious trip to Riga, Latvia where I ran my first half marathon this year. I loved the gold label race and the whole city as well. I could feel the love people feel towards it. And I loved Riga. But it was not only Riga for me. We took a day to experience a near by touristic place. It is an old and well known hiking location with beautiful river, forests and 3 castles. A pure gem people enjoy vacationing ever since XIX century. Last May we joined the glorious company of tourists in Sigulda and Turaida,



 


 My outfit was all touristy and cozy so pardon my way too regular outfit, not really worthy a mention.
But the Livonia order castle as well as Turaida castle/manor totally is. There are also beautiful sculptures in park (collection gifted), forest, a canopy road and caves. 

























Enjoy the rest of the week!
 

Have a nice day,
Lyosha

  4. So cool you ran a marathon in Riga. It's great you were able to feel how much people love it. I have never ran a marathon so I don't know what it is like. Latvia is a beautiful country and I would love to visit it some day. Fingers crossed I'll get the chance. I see that you have not only enjoyed Riga but other touristy areas in vicinity. That's awesome! Your outfits are always cute. You look lovely.

Salome

I just love theaters. Once again my fantastic hubby and I bought tickets and went on to see the play. In fact I wanted to watch it even since summer when my husband showed me this theater and I saw the photos and model of the stage of this play. Also this is a signature most famous play in the Viktyuk theater. It's based on Salome by Oscar Wilde. Visually stunning and deep. I enjoyed it a lot.

For the date evening I have chosen a simple outfit. All black and a bright skirt. I do enjoy being able to wear a short skirt in winter without complications. Yay for warm winter, I do hope it stays that way for longer (as it's January 31st today I can tell you January was the most warm in Moscow ever recorded, average temperature (night included) was above zero). Do you like my outfit?

 The play was so beautiful!


I was wearing:
Uniqlo skirt
Jil Sander boots
not branded/old turtle neck (it's over 10 years old)
Monki headband
c/o iGlassesShop glasses
Earrings originally belonged to my…

Just one more outfit

I haven't done a proper outfit post for ages! I even got asked if I stopped blogging about personal style (And I love you guys for that!). I realized how wrong I am about it. So there you have it an outfit post. I actually made this outfit to relax and enjoy my time with my hubby. Nothing serious, a little walk, laughs and delicious meal. We might go to movies or something. Somewhere in between a date and just us being very much in love. I know I am blessed having found my better half, my one true love.






Velvet is not something I was very much into throughout my life but lately I am a velvet girl. I like everything velvet.. don't blame me for this. Brighter colors are something I really want to wear more often during the grim winter months.

I was wearing:
Jil Sander boots
Uniqlo pants and top

Have a nice day, Lyosha

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 winter in Prague.
