Isolated not lonely


I had the most unusual birthday this week (on March the 31st). I was at home with husband and dogs. I wasn't working, running and watching fashion shows. I stayed home, ate cake, ordered delivery from one of my favorite places, watched studio Ghibli movies and played video games. I video-chatted a lot! The highlight of the day are my cakes. My very best husband spent hours caking it for me. I am forever grateful. It definitely was a birthday I will never ever forget!
Jelly unsweetened citrus cake with a moose (it is multicolored: light yellow, blue, orange, pinkish grapefruit, yellow and green layers!)
Honey-cake (honey and sea buckthorn berries) styled as gaming die to represent my board game love.




Stay safe, stay home even if you don't want to. Promise I miss hugging my family so much!

I was wearing:
very old topshop dress
Lizard necklace
cakes made my husband

 

Have a nice day,
Lyosha

  3. I love that saying isolated but not alone. As much as this quarantine in the states (NY) has been a downer, it is nice to have my family home for dinner every night. My girls are usually running around with dance and everything else life throws at them.

  10. Happy Birthday. How sweet of your husband and how talented he is. Sounds like the perfect lock down birthday! I love Ghibli movies too. I've been to a few of the real life inspiration spots for some of the movies here in Japan. We are very excited that a Ghibli amusement park is opening here in a couple of years time.

  13. What beautiful cakes! A very happy belated birthday to you! It's nice you still had cake to celebrate even if you did have to stay home - we had to have a party at home with no guests for my son's fourth birthday party as well, it's a strange time we are living in!


    Hope that your weekend is going well :) We are all staying home and staying safe.

  30. Happy birthday !!! I had no idea you can use sea buckworth as a cake ingredient, it must give the cake a lovely flavour when combined with honey. Nice to see you looking so happy on the photos.

    I am glad that you were able to make the best out of the situation and still celebrated your birthday with lovely cakes. My daughter's birthday was on the 23rd and I made her a cake, making do with whatever I had in stock. Stay safe and stay healthy. Hopefully, this will all be over soon.

  41. Happy birthday, Lyosha! I'm so glad you had an amazing day, despite the circumstances. I think that is a big reminder for me that attitude and perception are everything. It can easily be depressing, but it isn't.

    1. I agree: instead of being sad of what you can not get focus on what you can and try to be happy about it

  44. I will also be celebrating my bday in isolation in a few days. At least I get to celebrate is the attitude I will take. My kids and wife are all that matter to me.

  46. This new normal will take a lot of getting used to. I saw a video clip where there's a birthday cake and guy was wearing a surgical mask. He used a hairdryer to blow out the candles and there were 6 ipads and phones infront of him with his friends on the screen greeting him. It was sad and yet so futuristic at the same time. Glad your bday wasn't like that.

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…
