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,

Add a layer

The last day of Summer was the hottest in Moscow during the whole recorded time. I didn't fully enjoy it frankly having tons of things to do. And so I did with the first day of fall as well. I kinda wished I was myself on the photos below: chilling and relaxed on a boat.
Today I don't only want to show the wonderful idea of boat style transitioning outfit but also show you my new item. So if you happen to be on a boat take a cardigan. On water even slight wind might feel colder especially when fall is right there. however it might be good to swim or sunbath so you might want to wear a bikini. Light cardigan is on to go item for such moment: just throw it right onto your swimsuit and enjoy the comfort and beauty. This purple babe is from Dear Lover. The they both wholesale and retail options so you will definitely find what suits you best. There are tons of cardigans and it is a joy! I have to admit when I feel the breath of autumn I tend to look at all the cardigans out there.…

MFW, final day: Svetlana Evstigneeva

ENG: My final day of MFW! It was my most exciting day and even a little bit of bitterness from Moscow Fashion Week coming to an end didn't spoil it all for me. The show of Svetlana Evstigneeva was so good I decided to make a separate post for it! So the post for today is fully dedicated to the most beautiful show of all MFW in my eyes. Wedding and formal dresses, charming accessories, fantastic flowers and makeup - all of that combined to bring you the best possible combo ever. I highly suggest you to just watch.

RU: Последний день Недели Моды в Москве! Дня меня он оказался самым ярким и волнующим, так, что даже небольшая горечь от того, что MFW кончается не смогла оттенить моей радости. Показ Светланы Евстигнеевой был настолько прекрасен, что я решила выделить для него отдельный пост. Таким образом публикация, которую вы сейчас читаете, будет полностью посвяжена самому красивому показу в рамках Недели Моды в Москве по моему скромному мнению. Сва…

Myshkin and River Cruising

I definitely needed that cruise. I feel so much better today! It was such a wonderful trip to me. The weather was good, there was a tiny bit of rain the first night but after that it was food. There even was sunny on our last purely cruising day. I think we will cruise a lot more next year, especially as there budget-friendly weekend options available. It was a three-day (starting late Friday) cruise with only one stop on a way: Myshkin. Myshkin is most likely named so not because of Mouse (which shocking for Russian speaking person having it mascot animal as mouse and even as part of coat of arms) but as letter changing from original Myskin (mys is cape in Russian). But there is also a legend of Russian ruler being saved by running mouse from poisonous snake. A lot of people believe that both stories are true. Anyway, right now Myshkin is all about mice, there are tons of jokes (for example stating both human population and approx mice population head to head), tiny monuments and the…
