B-day girl

I promised more maternity styles with no maternity clothes. There you have it! It is what i actually wore for my birthday on March 31st. We had a blast.
Before I start telling about my b-day celebrations I wanted to tell you something very exciting. Max and I relocated and now we live in a whole new place. My style will change I think because now I live in tropics. It does sound like a dream and I absolutely LOVE it so far. I now live in Cancun, Mexico so if you are ever here, drop me a line, I'd love to hang out. So far I absolutely love it here, all the downsides are the ones I knew of and been prepared to; so much that actually succeeded my expectations! I'll tell you more later on, most likely when we are fully settled.

We celebrated my birthday in Playa Del Carmen. It was very much fun! We had a huge ice cream instead of a cake (and I totally don't mind) and spent most of the day relaxing in cenote. Cenote is a cave, semi-opened cave or a an opened natural pool with not salted water. The ancient Maya used it as water sources. You can find it all over Yucatan peninsula and if you are ever there you just have to try a number of it. Personally I find it WAY better than the sea. These are called Xca-Ha and you can actually walk there from 5th av which is a main shopping/tourist street in town. Super friendly for kids with tons of pools and rides for little once; big picnic are, you can bring you own food there, just make sure not to eat in the pools and go anywhere near cenote. You have to pay extra for the cenote but it is worth it. It has two pools that are connected via steps. The water is warm there because the cave is semi-open and well lit (some cenotes might be pretty chilly to actually swim around for long). Very nice and affordable place (especially since you don't need to use any transport to get there the center). As there was tons of swimming I am actually featuring a couple of photos from there in my bikini. I found regular bikini with straps perfect for pregnancy as well simplest bras, especially triangles and halters. My breasts grew a lot and I don't personally find it very emotionally comfortable around my chest but I know it looks fine and it's my mind playing around. Yes, you can feel insecure in so many ways, especially if you are in love with your AA cup. 
With my regular outfit I wore an old roomy vacation style monochrome dress. I love it so much, never tired of it personally! White bag is roomy enough to carry stuff we needed (swimsuits and a towel). I didn't want my birthday outfit to e black-and-white so I added some yellow from my new watch strap (actual gift of my hubby for my birthday), sunnies and a silk scarf. I find the coordination pretty cute here. (secret: I have an outfit using the same color formula for you to show pretty soon).



I was wearing:
Marc by Marc Jacobs (old)
Fila flip flops
Michael Kors bag
c/o iGlasseshop glasses
Fossil watch (my hubby's gift for this birthday)
silk scarf (a hand me down from my wonderful Mother)

 

Have a nice day,
Lyosha

    1. thanks! yeah, I have tons of news lately but I promise no more surprises. We actually had to move fast with all the things and I did take a week of blogging completely to set up the move, actually travel and such. We were in a hurry because of my pregnancy. I am blessed with a bump on a smaller size but I am actually 33 weeks pregnant already so we wanted to set up home while I can still be active about it. Also our dogs are joining us a little later on with a separate flight which actually makes things SO much easier. And my husband Max helps a lot with everything (he actually does most of the stuff) while still working full time, it's pretty awesome how much you can push yourself when you actually feel the need and is able to be flexible about your schedule, making work purely task-based. We also changed our active hours a bit, it helped a ton. It is surprising how much you can do if you slack less and wake up earlier. It works even for me which is surprising because the main downside of pregnancy for me is having to sleep more, it's a pain to loose two hours of your time per day in a blink of an eye.

    1. I am using regular 50 sunscreen from Nivea not super strong Korean and Japanese sunscreens I am used to, I think there's nothing wrong with getting a tiny bit of tan and there is not reason to really fight it hard

And I'm sure you're excited to your move to Cancun, I can't wait to read about your future Mexico posts.

  14. Hi Lyosha. Cool picture on the swing. But the gator pic is a bit scary. I'd rather eat gator than be eaten by one!

You have got a new hairstyle, but don't know how to take care of your hair extensions? Today we give you some great tips about how to treat your new locks in order to preserve their beautiful shine and how to keep them form tangling up.

Merida, part 2. Dzibilchaktun

As a huge lovers of ruins and history and old stones we couldn't possibly passed on an opportunity to visit the ruins. Dzibilchaktun was a marvel and we enjoyed the ruins of the old city so much. It added a lot that we were allowed to almost fully interact with the zone, climb up, sit on the stones and such. Too bad the cenote was closed but when it's opened we'll make sure to visit again. The place says it all really, I loved it SO much. I found it most curious that it was an actual living vibrant and kinda big city years back, ot a religious place, it was a place where people flocked to live their lives. Very fascinating! I chose a loose dress and a polo. It's very comfortable to wear, has minimal impact of local weather (if it's hotter I have move coverage but generally won't feel hot since the fit is loose; if it's colder I have longer sleeves and a tiny bit of layering. a win-win). The whole outfit looks pretty and I loved the mix. I was wearing:

Merida, p1

Our first trip around Mexico as residents and as parents. I was so excited and happy to just to do it, it didn't really mean much to me how much I will be able to see and explore. We ended up spending three very wonderful days in Merida and today I want to share with you the first of them. I know it might be confusing because I have just posted about Valladolid getaway before but actually these Merida moments took place two weeks earlier. I've just had too many photos to sort and been a bit lazy here and there. So here goes the first day. We wanted to visit the far off museum right away because I day was a day of arrival which is broken anyway. It's called Mayan World museum and it hold the largest exhibition on the history of Maya. We were super curious and motivated to visit it because we live around Maya and our curiosity is very high. The museum is amazing and totally worth your time. Bonus points from us because it held a temporary cycling exhibit. My cycling heart l
