Ruins, again. Chichen Itza, boys and girls!

Can't get enough of ruins. Always fun and joy to me. I am so blessed to be living to so many old Mayan cities to explore them. And not even once. During my mother-in-law visit I took her to visit Chichen Itza. It's a classic staple sight, modern world wonder and so on. Definitely my least favorite but it is a must visit for any person who visits Yucatan peninsula for the first time.

I wore travel uniform. Comfortable top, jeans (to survive AC in the bus for me, and also a good buffer from mosquitos) and flip flops. I'd recommend you wearing sneakers if you are not wearing flip flops all the time and feel just as comfortable.

I was wearing:
Levi's jeans
H&M top
handmade bracelets and necklace
Optima flip flops


Have a nice day,

  1. That's great that you were able to explore these ruins. We love visiting Mexico and seeing different Mayan Ruins. Chichen Itza has become quite crowded lately, and we actually climbed the temple about 20 years ago when we were there - of course it has since been closed to going on the temple. What is your favorite Mayan Ruin?

    1. probably Ek Balam. You can directly interact with the ruins, the territory is big so you can walk there and it's less touristy. The most flashy are Tulum: the sea does a lot with an impact. Also there are TONS of iguanas everywhere and I love them endlessly. I also want to mention Muyul: they are tiny but have the most unique temple and are linked to a wonderful nature park and superb cenotes just around the corner. There are literally nobody there and the nature is a marvel. having a boat tour will give SO much! perfect for birdwatching too.

  2. I so much enjoy all your travels and explorations in this amazing country.

  3. Love those relaxed jeans and it looks like such a nice place to visit, even if not one of your favourite spots!

    Hope your day is going well :)

  4. I'm so glad you are able to explore such incredible places! The ruins are really special. Your photos are just extraordinary and I love your outfit as well.
    the creation of beauty is art.

  5. The ruins are great! I haven't seen any of the ruins in Mexico yet, but they are on my list. Thank you for sharing.

    1. I hope you will like it here. Literally there is SO much history everywhere in Mexico, it's very hard to miss whatever region you choose.

  6. You're so funny! Hope the ruins don't ruin it for you ;-) We visited some of the ruins during our stay in Puerto Morelos and I really loved it. Yucatan is such a wonderful place once you get away from the mass tourist places.
    Hope you're enjoying it to the max! :-)

    1. I agree. Touristy places are fun when you are tourist but no fun if you are a traveler or an expat like me. However when a real tourist comes to visit you, you need to bend from time to time

  7. Wow! This is place is fascinating. Would love to explore the ruins too. I agree with you that comfortable wear is a must in this trip.

  8. This place has been on my bucket list (well Mexico in general itself) for too long.. and I recall first reading about the Mayans in a storybook when I was a kid and being fascinated by them ... seeing these will feel like stepping back in time..

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
