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:

Have a nice day,

Back with outfit

And I am finally back to outfit posting. I originally planned to post it simultaneously with my Instagram outfit but things do not always go as planned. Anyway, there you have it. Technically it's my last outfit of 2020 we wore it for our annual theater time. I can't way the play was good but it wasn't bad either, I saw a lot in common with my personal vision of 2020 as year here. I wore long skirt and a sweater here. I am crazy about funny pattern and I like now the colors mix. It's rare for me but both items are from the same brand, Akhmadullina Dreams. yes, it's Russian and I absolutely love it, mostly for quirky and funny prints and embroidery. My green sweater with bright fluffy red fox is from the same brand as well as my botanical dress. The boots are very old but I don't wear them often. I always wonder why, though. I should wear it more often.   I was wearing: c/o iGlasseshop glasses Akhmadulla Dreams sweater and skirt Empodium boots   Hav

It got warmer!

How are you guys? I am feeling awesome! The weather improved and we pretty much did everything we needed to do. I feel so happy and so free! Wonderful feeling, I am fully back on track. And having sun and much warmer weather I took a short walk to do some chores wearing a very light outfit. Surely it would have been too cold to spend a lot of time in it outside but it wasn't my case. It felt awesome getting rid of the coat in favor of jacket. I don't wear this dress as much as I would want mainly because it is perfect for trips (it doesn't take much space at all) and I got it on sale for that. It did went on a trip with me last August but as international travels are still mostly cancelled I was wearing: H&M dress Fila sneakers c/o MoonLove necklace c/o Rosegal jacket and long socks   Have a nice day, Lyosha  

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
