Happy New Year!

In Russia New Year celebrations are major and a lot of people have some time off. For me it also means meeting with friends and following the traditions. One of said traditions is an early run on January the 1st. It is call a run of commitment or promise or resolutions. We gather with some other runners (this year due to we-all-know-what there were over 50 spots on maps of Moscow, on average there were 15 people on a run so it was easy to keep the distance), write on number plate without an actual number and run for as many meters as the new year. It actually works, well, mostly. I always write something about basement but we haven't yet did up will our desires yet. May be 2021 will make it different for my basement. My resolution trick is to write things I want to achieve but I can work on. So if I want to do something I want to move forward to completing it, even if I couldn't make it in the end, I can see how much I improved or moved forward. It makes me happy as well. I don't think I will be very active this week forward but I will try to show my face a little more online.






 

Have a nice day,
Lyosha

  5. Keeping a list of goals is a great way to stay on top of working towards them, even if you only make a list on the new year. Good luck on the basement, you'll get it done!

  6. Yes! I'm the same way, I don't want to make resolutions that I won't keep, but work towards something to make me feel like I've accomplished something.

  18. Happy New Year! I had to convert 2021 meters into miles because it seemed like a lot for this non-runner (bad knees). But it wasn't too bad once I saw the numbers LOL I am glad you all had a good time! Again, Happy New year!

  30. Happy new year, Lyosha! I hope 2021 is amazing for you and your husband. My new year was far less exciting than yours. I spent it at home in my pajamas with my cat. Lol. But I did get to go outside and see some fireworks nearby, and I really enjoyed that. I am excited to see what this year brings for all of us.

  31. Happy New Year! I love this tradition, it's such a fun way to kick off the year on a positive note. We always go for our 'first day hike' where we pick a random local trail to hike with the pups. Getting out with nature has been a major source of peace and tranquility for my husband and I, so it allows us to start the year with the right mindset.

Christmas week

Christmas is just around the corner and I am personally super happy and excited with all the decor and holiday spirit around. I totally feel it and enjoy it a lot. I took this photo doing Christmas shopping with my mom. We shared lots of laughs, girly talks and did the present buying job. I have a soft spot for Christmas and holidays I know how to celebrate (decoration and dressing up are my main loves) so I can't really pass the beauties there. I asked my mother to take a quick shot of mine and even took off my mask for a minute for it to look the best. Don't worry, there was literally no one around (it's just opened) and I was changing my mask anyway. Bonus: a part of our tree and lemon cakes from last weekend I was wearing: Arny Praht backpack Uniqlo jeans Fila sneakers not branded and very old sweater   Have a nice day, Lyosha  

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

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
