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,

Engagement and birthday news

I Suck when it goes to delivering news. I mean.. I never do it in time. I do always forget about birthdays and such and more over even if keep it my mind sometimes I'm too slow, so everybody think someone reminded me. Why Am I saying that? The answer is simple. I have two awesome news to share and I waited for a too long time to write about it. I'm slow again! In September Max and I decided to get married but kept it secret waiting for January to come. A week ago Max asked my father for hand. So finally I can say it out loud: We are getting married in May That's our hands and the small ring on the finger is the  engagement  ring. Why is not classic? My job. It's ment to be worn constantly but I can barely do it with big stone. The  possibility of cracking the ring into pieces is very close to 1 so we started thinking of other options. The   idea was very easy and came to my-soon-to-be-husband Max: flat with one or couple of stones fixed very well. You may be as

Fairy tale, part 4. Prague

God, I miss that vacation! And here comes the last part of our New Years Trip. Prague! The capital the lovely city. We had so much fun there and are very grateful for what we got there. If fact we had so much fun simply walking around the city, looking for sun or place with now wind,  laughing  on no matter what and eating trndelniks (tasty sugar backed something). The day we shot my outfit was very sunny. Although a bit windy. There is not much to write about Prague - I assure you, you just have to see all with your own eyes. It's my second time in this  marvelous  city and I enjoyed it as my first time. I'm very sorry for huge amount of my outfit shots, but they are so much fun.

Explore Starcon

I'm going to brake up vacation post series to share the Starcon experience. A week ago I was sitting on the same spot and getting ready to go. We've been to lovely Saint  Petersburgh. We managed to have a charming walk in the  evening even right after the con. Starcon was all about sci-fi and we loved it so much. We even wore the Jedi costumes (wait for them in the end of post). Max, my lovely husband, sewed them for only 3 days (that's why the design is so simple). and I also got 2d place in Star Wars Miniatures board game tournament took place there. I'm so happy! As for outfit - I've chosen a super comfy outfit with a very cool pants! I bought them on ebay and they are more than 20 year old pants (I guess soon they could buy booze on their own but I doubt I need it). I love them for their shape - keeping me cool during hot and warm when needed. Oh, and can I also call it my pijama pants trend pants? or not? What I also wanted to mention you are my fab set jewel
