Istanbul Minute

We have spent some time in Istanbul and it was so much fun! The city is huge, vibrant and very different from everything I saw and, funny thing, from what I remember of it. So much to see, experience and eat. Lots of water, beautiful lights everywhere and bazars (I do have a soft spot for it). We were super blessed to spend the first day with our local friend who loves city and had everything planned for us. We even enjoyed local specific and hyper popular junk food. And it was a great place to celebrate birthday of my love, he enjoyed the new place to visit and he enjoyed it even more because he visited other part of Turkey not that long ago: comparing things is always fun. I wish the weather was better though but it didn’t deny the Istanbul charm.
Have you been there? Is Istanbul in your list?

















 

Have a nice day,

    1. It is a very diverse city, I do recommend to spend extra time there and explore it more. However early March is VERY COLD! I think we would explore and see more if it wasn't that cold

  18. Travelling is not a priority for me right now, but hopefully it will be in the near future. However, I believe Istanbul is definitely worthy of a visit and possibly one of the most popular European destinations. It's nice you had a lovely time. It's good you were able to meet a friend who planned things for you, that always helps.

Explore Starcon

I'm going to brake up vacation post series to share the Starcon experience. A week ago I was sitting on the same spot and getting ready to go. We've been to lovely Saint  Petersburgh. We managed to have a charming walk in the  evening even right after the con. Starcon was all about sci-fi and we loved it so much. We even wore the Jedi costumes (wait for them in the end of post). Max, my lovely husband, sewed them for only 3 days (that's why the design is so simple). and I also got 2d place in Star Wars Miniatures board game tournament took place there. I'm so happy! As for outfit - I've chosen a super comfy outfit with a very cool pants! I bought them on ebay and they are more than 20 year old pants (I guess soon they could buy booze on their own but I doubt I need it). I love them for their shape - keeping me cool during hot and warm when needed. Oh, and can I also call it my pijama pants trend pants? or not? What I also wanted to mention you are my fab set jewel

МКММ + Couture Fashion Show

So! I am so very excited! I have visited my first real actual fashion show ever since March and I couldn’t ever be happier. It’s just wow! This time I visited MKMM final shows merged with Couture Fashion Show later that night. I had a chance to see many wonderful shows by young and talented designers and enjoyed it a lot. Creativity everywhere. Something is purely catwalk (and I totally don’t mind it at all), something that is very easy to imagine rushing the streets, something very creative and futuristic and making a statement with so much in between. Overall in love. I don’t think I really can be picky because after all those digital shows real made a huge impression on me. It almost as if I am visiting my first ever fashion show but better because I know what to expect. I think you are not reading this and already scrolled past this point and enjoy the contestants. And don’t blame you at all.  RU: Прекрасные новости! Мой первый настоящий офлайн показ с марта месяца. И он оказася пр

The Big day inspiration

Today is a big day for my husband's family. It's his sister's wedding day. Crazy huh? She used to be his little sister and now she's getting married! I'm sure we'll have a lot of joy on the event but before that I wanted to share some inspirational content with you! Lets imagine you're accompanying me to the wedding party! To provide you with that feeling I teamed up with a new shop to me. I didn't know about it before but now I'd say it's a shame. Lovely choices! Are you ready to know how it's called? I hope you are! So the shop is called Jjshouse     They have tons of wonderful styles! I was so happy to look through the options! Too many not to become overjoyed! Sooo good! But I wanted to pick something interesting for today. I'm not saying anything bad with my choice but the section I loved the most on wedding collection part is mother of the bride dresses  To inspire you and show you the lovely styles stolen my heart I'll gonna sh
