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:

























I was wearing:
Levi's jeans
Forever 21 top
Caterpillar shoes
H&M hairpin
 

Have a nice day,

Cute Leaf

It's been awhile since I posted a simple outfit. Something I wore for no actual reason just to enjoy myself. It's actually feels great to be able to post an outfit that is just, well, an outfit. I like the calm grey-ish tone of it. I felt relaxed and ready to enjoy the golden leaves and even post with one of them. This particular leaf suffered a horrible end: instead of being a nourishment for trees it became a toy for my pups to be torn in pieces and eaten.   I was wearing: Jil Sander boots Monki bag Uniqlo Heattech turtleneck H&M cardigan c/o Moon Love necklace   Have a nice day, Lyosha  

Cat-eye and blue: Glassesshop GUDVUE glasses review

You do know I have a lot of glasses. Like really a lot but I do wear them all and this luxury allows me to store a pair everywhere I might need it which is a blessing for a person who wears glasses occasionally, not all the time. I don't have to look for different pair, I just grab what I have near by. I am so spoiled. And am spoiled even more by wonderful and beloved by me shop Glassesshop.com They have a new brand GUDVUE and they offered me two pairs for a review. Today I want to tell about about my new most worn frames. Big, cat-eye and blue. Do I really need anything more? Yes I do. You know I always vouch for quality when it goes for Glasseshop but here they outdid themselves. It not feel great, it feels lux! And I definitely LOVE it. As always light but not too much, perfectly fit for my face (as well as overall quality), the lens are so good, I love the screen protection so much! Awesome! I am sorry for being so positive about it, I just can't find any flaw. Even the

November Sunglasses Review: Glassesshop

Review time! You know I have a long term love and partnership with glasses shop Glassesshop . I have far more than just one pair of glasses from them and I do enjoy and love each. Last week I told you about the new brand Gudvue and regular prescription glasses. This time I want to share my sun glasses. Yes I agree it's not the best time to wear sun glasses in Moscow but it's not like my sunnies gonna run anywhere. Actually as soon I saw some sun coming out of the clouds (November is very grim and dark in Moscow) I took my husband out on a date while rocking my new sunnies. The frames are lightweight, big enough and cover from sun nicely. Not too dark so you can see things. I also had it done with lens to improve my vision and as always it worked great. Slight polarization is a nice bonus to me. The quality is superb, it doesn't feel good, it feel posh and lux. I am shocked how expensive it looks and feels because in real life it is not. As always I highly recommend you to
