Effort or no effort?

I love this look. It's funny because I originally planned on something different only to notice I had a spot on my pants. Well, not much to change but scheduling some laundry time. I originally planned to shoot an outfit I was supposed to wear so I was a little bit sad it didn't happen. We had things to do anyway so I just threw an outfit to do the shores. Passing the mirror by I noticed that my outfit actually looked pretty cute. I smiled and asked my husband on his opinion. He only smiled back and said that we are doing the shoot anyway. Isn't it lovely? There is a lot about me being effortless lately. I do own my looks and I don't actually work hard to look pretty. Yes, you can still see me wearing a smile t-shirt+jeans/shorts combo oftentimes but most of the time I look as if I made an outfit (read some effort here). Also don't you have some Caribbean vibe here? I somehow get it here. A lot.

There is one more thing I want to talk about today. Not actually a thing connected to fashion, it's connected to life instead. And to effort too. Not long before wonderful fellow blogger and a great inspirational writer Laura (you can find her blog here) asked me if I wanted to take her course on Cycle breaker parenting and review it. I didn't hesitate because I really love her blog and how she speaks up in there. I was thinking to actually buy a course too once we're more settled with the baby routine so the offer was even more welcomed. I didn't fully work through it yet but I am so eager to start with my preliminary review. 
First of all: I love that you can read and listen to the course. Both options are self-sufficient so if you wanna go on a walk and listen to a pleasant guiding voice it will be just as good as to read the lesson quietly in your room. It mixes and matches well as well. I like it a lot because I actually get things better when I read them comparing to listening to on any language. 
Second of all: the approach. kindness, forgiveness, connection. Radical compassion is a thing! It is perfect and it utilizes so much from the therapy sessions. It is basically a steal! 
Third of all: the exercises. I love doing the work but I don't have much time and a big amount of writing and working scares me off. Here you get just what you need to give you more thought and at the same time not to rob you. Special shout out for the stylish prints to work it. Stylish and elegant. 
Forth: the contents. not only I admire the subject I love how focus is placed on you way more than on the kids. My grown-ups like me it might be an issue. The course is universal so it works equally good for any gender, age group of parent or a child and number of kids you might have (surely, that is only my own perspective and thinking).
Fifth point: as I have already mention the price of the course. I mean it. Taking how much it has in line with therapies, how balanced it is, the price is very affordable. It is actually very affordable even if offered less. The course spans for a month of daily work (and we do understand that it will probably take you a little longer to finish as we are all grown ups here and have kids too).
Do I need a sixth? I little bit of negativity in here: I couldn't find anything about the course I didn't like so I find it pretty hard to write a review here. You know, the course sounds too perfect. It actually is. To me. Also there is a great podcast about cycle breaker parenting! Highly recommend it as well as her free mini course (you can start there to see if her vision and wording works for you)

I was wearing:
c/o Rexing sport top
c/o Zabegina bandana (it's actually a silk scarf)
c/o Nordgreen watch

  1. I love the look, amazing!!! The bandana is an awesome accessory, super cute.

  2. This is definitely a gorgeous outfit! I just love the silk scarf as a bandana. You look beautiful!
    the creation of beauty is art.

  3. I miss my bandana days. Easy and fashionable to cover your messy hair.. now we wear wigs hahahaha. How time changed.

    1. wigs are pretty cool anyway. A little bit hot but looking great

  4. Your outfit is super has a 70s vibe! I have never heard of cycle breaker parenting, but I love the idea of letting go of the feelings of insecurity and fear that we developed in our childhood.

    1. You should take a closer look at the course. there are free options and there point for parents of older and much older kids too

  5. I love the look and the course sounds very interesting, definitely something I'd like to try!

  6. You definitely can throw together a good look easily. The Caribbean vibe does show thru.

  7. I love the head scarf! BTW, it has become super difficult to comment on your blog since so many ads keep popping up and moving all over the screen... in case you can do something about it ;)
    have a great weekend,

    1. thanks so much! I really need to look closer at both mobile and desktop version. I tried adding built in 'suggested' ads mode and it looks like it's a fail! thank you!

  8. Love the outfit as always my dear! Like you never had a baby, still sexy :)

  9. Your outfits are always spectacular! Lovely to see you're making the most of the sun!

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


Autumn is everywhere! I love how beautiful and ever-changing it is! Feel so inspired simple looking outside of the window not taking about walking in the park...  In case you're wondering I feel much better now, thanks a lot for everyone of you! I believe it's your positive thinking helped me a lot. This time it was time for knits and feeling cosy. Despite the unmerciful wind this cape made me feel good and cosy. I'd add a scarf to feel warmer but alas I realized that in the park already. And yes, turing back is just not my call. The scenery.... Talking about my outfit... There's a lot I can tell. The shoes I'm wearing are my fall boots, i fail to wear them during spring but always keep wearing it all the way around during fall. Comfy and the color matches the nature too well. My necklace with peacock (thank you oasap for that) is lovely I wanted to wear it a bit often but that was the first time it actually left my apartment. As for my central item
