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

  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.

Which Mario is your favorite?

This week was something! So much to do, everything flied in a flash right between my eyes and there you have it: Friday. I look forward to the weekend when I will see our friend and start taking classes. The weather is less hot these days, less than 30 and I know some people are happy about it but not me. Sometimes I think I should have been born in the desert under the scorching sun. Well any weather has the perks so today I was able to wear a little more clothes which actually feels nice for a change. They say the weather will be a lot better tomorrow and I am definitely all in.

We took photos in our favorite spot for taking photos this season. It's just so comfortable and pretty there and we do try to find new angles. Today you can see the park pavilion featured, there several similar designed pieces in the park and we did shoot in other one before.

I wear a white top with fun print yet again. It is my new weakness I am not ashamed of. Manga/anime and Nintendo ongoing collecti…

Hyper Casual

I took a short walk to see my parents and took these photos on a way. Can't really say much about this outfit, I didn't try to make it an outfit per se but photos turned out so nice I decided to share it with you. And frankly I've been a little lazy on creating content as of late so I am trying to compensate it in a way and in future. I promise to make lots and lots of awesome photos for you to enjoy in blog my blog and socials. Sometimes I think I should have blogged about my dogs' adventures, they always have something exciting happening. But than I realized it's not like it in the end of the day.

As there are less and less limitation tied with the pandemic we are super excited to have a first run 'race' this season on August 2d. It will also be in a town I have never been to so I am also excited to have a small trip. And talking about the excitement we booked a small trip to St. Petersburg and Russian Karelia later in August. And as a fini…

Boat office

During the hot days I want to spend more time next to the water. And as my father owns a boat and is willing to lend it to us from time to time we can't stay away from it. But after the lockdown there are so many things we want to catch up on or have to do we don't have extra time just to enjoy our selves. So we thought a little and decided to combine two passions in one.I won't lie, it feels great. Water makes any heat more tolerable and being able to take a break swimming definitely feels special. Also boat makes such a different perspective on everything, you feel different and somehow rested.

There are two outfits featured here. One is a very simple and beloved dress from Forever21. I wear on cycling trips and during the relaxed days and I am pretty sure it will last for a season or two more before it falls off being ripped and torn. The second outfit is a beach dress, which I used to cover up my bikini. I didn't have that much work that day, so I enjoyed more swi…
