new beginnings

September 10, 2013

I guess it’s a part of all creative souls to be fully present and then burn out. When a dream has faded and became unbearable.  And the only solution is to pack and run.

So there has been a lot of packing and running and unpacking again. A lot of touching moments and sweetest “till i see you again”s.  Followed by a lot of silence, taking a moment just to be.  Without any plans or expectations from self.  May be for the first time, a road without a final destination, without a goal. Scary and refreshing. Learning patience and simplicity.

And now, it’s all coming back. With blood pumping through the veins in the new way. There are big changes in the making. They are still too young to tell but soon to reveal.

All I can say for now is that I’m becoming a new persona.

vintage laugh

July 29, 2012

One might think that only our over-consumerized society can produce flops like this to ease our existence, but no…I guess it’s in the human nature to always push the boundaries. After all, you never know, when you going to hit the new “must-have”. Here are some of my favorite inventions for the 20th century:

Face mask against snow storms

Pedestrian shovel to reduce number of accident injuries.

Glasses for reading while laying in bed.

The stroller in case of radio-active explosion.

Share a smoke?

Even the dudes from “Fast and Furious” would be jealous.

re-born russian style by ulyana

July 13, 2012

Lets dwell a little bit more on the topic of summer and 50s fashion. This time coming form the homeland of Mother-Russia. While the fashion world is speculating on her first Couture Show in Paris with Fall 2012 (straight after no less then Chanel), I want to step one collection back of this up-and-coming designer, Ulyana Sergeenko. Her unique personal style was in the spot light of fashion bloggers for a while and it’s great to see how she transformed it into the couture lines.

It’s just too soon for me to think of colder days in the middle of LA summer. Flowing skirts, flower prints and bodies suit much better, don’t you agree?

I absolutely love how she marries together different aspects of Russian style with European influences:  the glamor of  Bridgit Bardot, the romanticism of a long-gone Soviet school uniform, folk Russian prints and the simple grace of a 50s working girl prepping up for a date.

italian summer

June 17, 2012

Something about this summer and nostalgic 50s fashion that’s been calling my name lately. Or may be it’s Bianca Balti in her latest Dolce & Gabbana editorials, looking so fashionably lazy in the sun with that Bridgette Bardoe make-up and hair.

Don’t you just want to wind-off on the unplanned voyage to visit some forgotten Italian relatives right about now? Let me know if you have any, ‘coz I don’t)))

And you if you still not entirely convinced, watch this video and I guarantee you’ll get that traveling bug.

i’m back

May 29, 2012

Hello lovelies! Guess what? This work-aholic girl of yours has returned from the vacation! As part of this year’s resolution list, I swore to let “The Planner” in me loose and be spontaneous. So far that resulted in an overnight trip to Vegas (so not like me), a crash of a party (TOTALLY not me) and this last-minute trip to Mexico.

So while I’m trying to pull myself off the sofa unpack, I leave you with this dreamy editorial showcasing exactly what I was doing for the past 5 days…that is NOTHING!

love is in the air

February 13, 2012

Even though I’m a strong believer in  expressing love in every little thing on the daily basis, some extra affection has never hurt anybody. So I hope you pause this busy Tuesday and get a chance to give and receive some :)

This post I want to dedicate to YOU… you know who you are (if not, look one more time at the image below:). Thanks for always looking at the bright side and cheering me up when I run low on the Endorphins. I HEART you!

good morning saturday!

February 11, 2012

Nothing says weekend morning at home more than lazy moments on cotton with rays of light peaking through the blackout drape, making breakfast to the Sinatra and Bennett tunes and totally busting a move while doing it, dressing up for no reason and a book that swallows you all. Hope you are having a wonderfully sunlit weekend!

amidst

February 8, 2012

In the middle of the unpleasantly tiring day, i was swept away by this beauty which totally made me reflect back and think how easy it is to get consumed by small things and stop paying attention to what really matter.
