Collector's edition


This week was not easy to me. I feel absolutely out of place, had a little cold and definitely ate too much sweet stuff. Anyway. I am not a model citizen lately. Some of my fantastic  readers who read both my blog and follow my Instagram (you can be one of them, I'd love it!) asked me if I was going to post in my 'big', 'actual' blog about my latest museum time. To be honest I didn't plan to but then I thought why not. It at least half way compensates my absence online. Oh and my big vacation next week. Here is what I wore for the museum time out with my beautiful Mother.
We got tickets prior which is a big deal in Moscow. Local people LOVE exhibitions so if you don't book and buy tickets beforehand (we did a week before) you will have to wait in the queue. It is scary because it will take a lot of time. 3 hours if you are lucky.
My Mother love impressionists so there was no way she wanted to miss out this exhibition. It is curious. We are used to see art gathered due to some reason: time, place, art style. This time the reason was the original collectors. Yes it was an exhibition of art once gathered by talents of old Russian collector world, the brothers of Shchukin. Their interests varied brother from brother, with making the most of Impact with Impressionist art style and Sergei Shchukin. The collection of Henri Matisse and Paul Gauguin was huge and very impressive. It was very curious not only knowing the reasons of making some of paintings (for example La Dance was painted for Sergei Shchukin as per order). The Gauguin room has sadder story behind: suffering from loosing his wife he wanted to brighten up his life thus making a wall of cheerful and colorful Tahiti motives.

My outfit was very comfy. I wore jeans, long warm cardigan (it is always chilly in the museums) and heels. I like wearing heels to the 'smart' places, it helps me to move slower and appreciate art more. Glasses are important for moles like me to see better and headband helps to keep my hair off my face when I bend to see something closer (mostly those tiny plates with description)

 
 whoever put it together like that. I love you! You made my day. And yes I love Picasso, so it's irony and love combined.




 it is the portrait of the collection Sergei Shchukin. welll and me.

I was wearing:
Levi's jeans
Monki top and headband
c/o Glassesshop glasses
Zara cardigan

 

Have a nice day,
Lyosha

  17. I always find it interesting what people describe is art. Everyone has such different tastes. Sometimes paintings that look like a splash are worth millions! I love looking at illustrators and graphic designer's work the most. However, I love your outfit and wish I could look good in heels like yours!

Sergiev Posad trip

First trip this year. And with friends. I have visited this town many times and it's still lovely. I'd say the point of this trip was to get out of home and familiar places to enjoy something remotely like a trip. We did want to look for something distant or hard to get to or even taking a lot of time to get to. SO we have chosen Sergiev Posad. This town is closely tied with Russian Orthodox Church having tons of temples and a monastery. I highly recommend to visit it because they have a super delicious bakery inside, not a joke really. The museums were closed and it was a bit cold outside but we walked a lot anyway. And had a fine meal together. If you ask me, it is very close to perfection. As for my outfit... I wanted to keep warm, that is why it looks a lot like what I wear to walk my dogs, lol. I tried to make it all look more pretty with long scarf (I have a soft sot for it) and cute mittens. But that's it really. I was wearing: H&M scarf Tommy Hilfiger b

I love this sweater

  Did you ever have this moment? You walk into the shop and you see the item and.. you see this item only, everything else is blank and the next moment you are buying it. That is exactly what happened to me. I love this sweater so much! It's so cute! I love the bright and vibrant blue color and absolutely ridiculous and uber cute dog (they say it's a dog) or at least someone canine. I think I will wear this sweater all the time mixing it with Christmas alpaca sweater and fox sweater from the same brand. I also wear classic winter patterns as well but it's not fun enough at least to me. Also I think bright blue looks wonderful with white snow, don't you think? I originally took these photo for instagram Nivea review. I don't plan on turning this post into full term review but I can say this xxl face wash edition is pretty nice. I use face wash very often (I wash my face after every walk outside and especially after visiting public place because of you-know-what thr

Hand Cream advise

Who feels motivated? Not me! I still going on with procrastination, lack of energy and also excess of sleep. I understand that extremely low temperatures affect me but still. With cold and increased amount of indoor heating I use more creams and generally skin care products. It's a big tip from me, don't wait for your skin to feel and look drier, apply moisturizer before it happens. It is even more important for your hands as it is not only the weather but also increased amount of washing and sanitizer affect your hand skin.  I decided to share a product review with my partner Nivea. Handcream is probably my favorite of all Nivea products in general. It is affordable, easy to access and it works. I love it that it smells less intense as other Nivea products usually. This particular hand cream was new to me, I haven't used it before. There was some aloe in it and I was super happy to receive it. Aloe is probably the best component for hand cream during winter for me. And t
