By the old manor


You can never guess how your photoshoot will turn out. Sometimes it works better than you hoped and you have a hard time finding the best photos to limit the post with sane number. Sometimes it works worse and you have to pick the photos you are ok with. The funny part tiny camera screen doesn't always a creditable source for photos because on the screen it sometimes looks different, better or worse. Surely taking many photos help a lot.


This photoset wasn't easy for me because it fall into "looking great on tiny screen, not that good on computer screen" category. We tried new location and basically we definitely need to work angles to actually make it work. It's the old Pokrovskoe-Streshnevo estate, unfortunately the buildings as closed off and more or less conservation, there are no plans to restore it. The place is a bit curious though, it was bought in early Romanov reign by the brother of Tzar's wife and been in hands of the family before the soviets came. It was reconstructed many times and saw a lot of balls and famous people, including rulers of Russia (several Emperors even) and writers: Tolstoy (author of 'War and Peace' and 'Anna Karenina') lived there and met his future wife and Bulgakov ('Master and Margarita') among many others. It had definitely seen better days but you can still feel the power of it even now, looking at it from the fence. The park I often take photos in was originally the garden of the estate behind me.


I really love the skirt I am wearing. It's comfortable and has pockets! It's definitely a statement piece so I tend to tune it down with some basic top and shoes but it's colorfulness always make smile. easy to wear and pop!

  3. It's a shame that they won't keep the building in a good shape, especially that it has so much history behind it. Your skirt looks very summery and comfortable.

  4. It's true that you can only get a general sense of how a photoshoot is going while you're in the midst of it. These came out great and your skirt is so fabulous!

  11. I know what you mean! Sometimes I think I like a picture when I preview it on my camera but then I put it on my computer and I hate everything about it. But the good news is that every single photo you posted is gorgeous. You have amazing style and I love that skirt. The colours are beautiful and it moves so well!

  49. Any skirt with pockets is a huge win in my book! Especially if it looks as fun as that one does. The estate looks like an incredible place from what we can see and I loved learning a little bit about it's history.

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…
