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 themed souvenirs. After USSR finished Myshkin decided to be a touristic destination and I love it for it. I did enjoy touring in it, visiting countless museums and learning new.





My outfit is very warm and comfortable as I wanted to walk a lot not bothered by weather at all. Frankly on the river I mostly wore a hoodie or just a top if I wasn't going to stand outside for a hour or so. I chose bright accessories to my outfit more attractive and thus blogging friendly.
























I was wearing:
H&M Metallica top
Befree jeans
Uniqlo hoodie and jacket
Fila sneakers

 

Have a nice day,

  28. Sounds like a wonderful cruise. I find river cruises much nicer than those that ruin the oceans....I enjoyed reading about Myshkin - it sounds very East European - like something from Gogol.

  42. I love river cruising. The slow pace of life around a river is so relaxing. Just lay back and read a book while you cruise gently.

  45. It looks like a lovely trip. I love cruises whether a lake, river or the sea. I actually get sea sick, but as long as I can sit out on deck I am fine!! So cruises are great for that. And so refreshing.

  46. Wow so happy for you and a little jealous too. Just joking. I love water and these short cruises.Lovely pics which made me feel I was cruising with you.

  47. Cheers to the Metallica top! And most of all, congrats on getting away in the midst of all this chaos with the pandemic. I'm jealous as we just cancelled our cruise for January due to so many restrictions I don't want to deal with for 11 days. You look COLD thought and I hate being cold, but you're smiling and having fun, so it must not have been a huge deal, good for you!

Sergiev Posad trip

First trip this year. And with friends. I have visited this town many times and it's still lovely. I'd say the point of this trip was to get out of home and familiar places to enjoy something remotely like a trip. We did want to look for something distant or hard to get to or even taking a lot of time to get to. SO we have chosen Sergiev Posad. This town is closely tied with Russian Orthodox Church having tons of temples and a monastery. I highly recommend to visit it because they have a super delicious bakery inside, not a joke really. The museums were closed and it was a bit cold outside but we walked a lot anyway. And had a fine meal together. If you ask me, it is very close to perfection. As for my outfit... I wanted to keep warm, that is why it looks a lot like what I wear to walk my dogs, lol. I tried to make it all look more pretty with long scarf (I have a soft sot for it) and cute mittens. But that's it really. I was wearing: H&M scarf Tommy Hilfiger b

Hand Cream advise

Who feels motivated? Not me! I still going on with procrastination, lack of energy and also excess of sleep. I understand that extremely low temperatures affect me but still. With cold and increased amount of indoor heating I use more creams and generally skin care products. It's a big tip from me, don't wait for your skin to feel and look drier, apply moisturizer before it happens. It is even more important for your hands as it is not only the weather but also increased amount of washing and sanitizer affect your hand skin.  I decided to share a product review with my partner Nivea. Handcream is probably my favorite of all Nivea products in general. It is affordable, easy to access and it works. I love it that it smells less intense as other Nivea products usually. This particular hand cream was new to me, I haven't used it before. There was some aloe in it and I was super happy to receive it. Aloe is probably the best component for hand cream during winter for me. And t

I love this sweater

  Did you ever have this moment? You walk into the shop and you see the item and.. you see this item only, everything else is blank and the next moment you are buying it. That is exactly what happened to me. I love this sweater so much! It's so cute! I love the bright and vibrant blue color and absolutely ridiculous and uber cute dog (they say it's a dog) or at least someone canine. I think I will wear this sweater all the time mixing it with Christmas alpaca sweater and fox sweater from the same brand. I also wear classic winter patterns as well but it's not fun enough at least to me. Also I think bright blue looks wonderful with white snow, don't you think? I originally took these photo for instagram Nivea review. I don't plan on turning this post into full term review but I can say this xxl face wash edition is pretty nice. I use face wash very often (I wash my face after every walk outside and especially after visiting public place because of you-know-what thr
