19 days of summer

Our trip in Thailand is finished...
19 days, 10 people, 6 places - one love!
Overall, we visited Bangkok, Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, Koh Tao, Krabi, Koh Phuket. And here's the video of our trip!
It was filmed on iPhone (and Sony, thanks Andrey!) and edited on iPhone, and this editing app almost killed my phone. Because of it, it's not perfect and I would like to add captures and effects to it, but I already love it the way it is.

London. Photo diary, pt. 1

London gave me a great reception, and these vacations let me forget all my daily worries and just hang out and enjoy beautiful life. Some nights were sleepless and restless, some were full of dreams, but days were always full of new impressions. I was free of visting the same traditional sightseeings like Big Ben and London Bridge, so I mostly walked wherever I wanted and visited lots of amazing exhibitions including Pradasphere in Harrods and both Italian Fashion & Wedding Dresses in Victoria&Albert Museum (about it in later posts), and it's not bad at all not to have any plans for a day and just decide where I want to go right  in the morning. People who love planning and feel better having everything in control, you know... sometimes it's just good to follow the flow. And just see what's around the riverband (yes, I quote Pocahontas).

Good buy

Recently I found myself not shopping for quite long time, and super warm weather made me finally go for it.
I really needed some comfortable shoes! Because of my habit to buy everything fancy but not wearable at all, I usually always wear the same old sandals and cheap H&M flats in summer, just not to get my toes covered in corns (ew!). But if you get tired after work as much as me and if on the weeknd the least you wanna do is to indulge into crowdy malls, you would understand why I went straight to Zara.
And I was surprised of the wide range of actually nice shoes (I was out of shopping for too long, indeed!). So I think... I found almost everything I wanted - cute bright flats and basic terracota leather platforms for  good price.

Don't you?

Don't you love that feeling of travelling? By train or by car or by plane, sitting with music in the earphones and looking out of the window how fast landscape changes every second. Sometimes you watch passengers or think about different things or hold someone's hand being excited. 
It doesn't really matter. It's just that impression of something new coming once you get to your destination. It's a good feeling of escaping old problems... at least for some time. It's being ready to mix with unexpected conditions and feel not bad about it. It's being brave and open and better than you are. 
Because once we leave for holidays or adventures, I believe we change. For many reasons.

Lace & Love - Bralettes

Главным фактором при выборе нижнего белья должно быть удобство — то есть ей удобно это носить, ему — снимать. 
Эвелина Хромченко

The main factor when choosing underwear should be convenience — for her to wear it, for him to undress. 
Evelina Khromtchenko

I'm not fanatic about underwear, I prefer plain colours and simplicity... but I'm in love with bralettes. They are so retro and aesthetically beautiful, they remind me old movies and at the same time so suitable for modern basic t-shirts and shirts.

Carried Away

I feel upset I haven't been posting anything for so long, however it's truth that my life mostly saw work and just usual leisure moments. I guess, it's also been a mess inspite of appearance of total dullness. And I did have lots and lots of thoughts past weeks and still cannot understand many things. Although... The best moments stay with us no matter what, and the best feelings will never leave.

What causes daily things, yesterday Saturday was a great day when my bff's birthday party was a good reason to meet old friends. And while singing a few songs in karaoke from our past which really made us friends, it carried me away back in time to summer 2010 before my life rapidly changed. A very important person was still alive, I was careless and full of dreams about career and love. It was summer from Hollywood youth comedies and sometimes I wish I would freeze in that time.

The best moments however, stayed uncaptured as it always happens. Looking at the photos, once again I think  - The best moments stay with us no matter what, and the best feelings will never leave.

Korean Girls of Fashion

Being in love with fashion blogs and fashion overall, I have to notice that most of my favourite bloggers are Asian girls (Nicole Warne, Olivia Lopez, Rumi Neely, Aimee Song and others). Not only 'cause I'm Asian as well, but I think Asian girls' sense of style is the closest to my preferences and taste. 
And of course, it's essential that I feel proud when see how Korean girls succeed in fashion and blogosphere! I'm not taking Korean fashion icons and fashion bloggers from South Korea, but the girls from Europe and America. And here they are...

Wonder Woman

This New Year party was ComicCon themed! There were not many of us, but I loved how everyone was prepared, especially the boys.
My costume was made of stuff which I already had, 'cause I didn't have time to buy special costume. The tiara and bracelets were made of hard paper and coloured with crayons and nail golden polish. I used white star stickers for the skirt to make it alike Wonder Woman's, and I was lucky to find an old red top with alike golden pattern.

My make-up was as always focusing on dark eyes except that this time I had to put bright red lipstick. But as I think my image was complete thanks to the hair which was done by my mum. It could be even more complete with the lasso and red boots but I forgot my lasso at home... and I absolutely cannot imagine why would I (or anyone else) buy high red boots haha.
In the end it came out much better than I thought it would be. And as we say in Russia, you're gonna spend the year the way you meet it... Hopefully, all year I will be mighty and strong just like Wonder Woman!

Lots of love,
