Imatra, Finland

I have a habit of posting my past trips while I am on vacation traveling somewhere. Guess what: I am on vacation again. This time cycling around Bodensee. 

This short day trip was very important to me. I was the first I taken all by myself in a long time. Sure it was exciting! I traveled solo and it made me a little nervoius too. It went awesomely and I did enjoy sometime alone with myself and little border town of Imatra.
Imatra has a long history of beautiful nature love, having a long established park area. And a beautiful waterfall turned power station which attracted (unfortunately) suicidal people for many years. Thankfully nowadays with power station working nobody jumps off the waterfall there. But there is a monument to remember those poor souls including the local dame ghost. For me it was all about the big lake, pretty rocks and the sky.
By the way, Imatra was popular with Russian Empire people during the period of Finland being a part of old Russia. In Imatra those memories are strong. The most famous building, the hotel fortress was build for Russian Empress Ekatherina's visit, there are recreational areas in the park built for Russian Emperor and his wife and there is also an attraction of huge rocks where Russian nobles wrote their names (old fashioned graffiti style) which is funny for russian person like me to read. Overall, it was a day to remember.

As it was hot I wore a short top. Jeans and shoes I needed as I knew about the park and I knew I will be tempted to explore off road. It was so worthy! By the way, do you like my photos? I used rocks and timer to make it.





And some sights not only with me:

Emily Rose, the interview

Today I have something special made for you, an interview. Not long ago I went by a lovely newly launched online shop Emily Rose, became charmed by the styles and decided to tell you about in best possible way: making an interview.

1 how did Emily Rose start? Why did you decide to turn your art into fashion? I have always been into art, drawing painting, sculpting, and photography. I just love creating! I studied art education at Long Island University in New Yorkto become an art teacher. My first year of teaching I was required to teach fashion, I had to teach myself and I found the art of fashion inspirational. My website originally started as my online art portfolio just to showcase my art. I created my website myself by watching lots of tutorials, I was not trained in web development. I always thought it would be cool to mass produce something since it makes it more affordable for other to make purchases than to buy my original pieces. I looked around the internet for print on dema…

Happy Monday!

It was a it rainy yesterday but we loved it. It means there way less people outside and breathing is super nice. It is still very warm outside so I added a light denim jacket and a hat (as a shelter for possible rain) to finish it. Actually my husband chose this hat and it totally took on different level.

We've been filming a yoga video with my classmate and teacher on Saturday and I was dead beat on Sunday. Actually we took walk to take a walk, we had other plans put rearranged everything to take a rest on Sunday. We succeeded. Yay me!

Topshop shorts
Uniqlo One Piece t-shirt

Have a nice day, Lyosha

Birthday Boy

Summer! I love it when it's hot. I never complain about the hot weather if I don't do it on purpose to get some ice cream. I don't really associate summer with bright colors in clothing but I do feel it's ideal for floral print. If you ask me I go out as much as I can safely. It is not easy because it looks like that despite the numbers my country has forgotten about the virus at all. We stay away from people as much as possible so I am super thankful we know our local park so well. All I really need to avoid people is to pass the doors.
I haven't worn these shorts for ages. I saw it last week in my closet and realized I really want to wear it now. I practically live in it this week. So comfy! I like matching it with brighter colors so really pop.



It's my pup's Birthday today. Raidho, the elder boy, turned nine today. Time flies so fast. I love him to the moon and back and do hope he has many-many active years ahead. Happy happy Barkday!
