Moscow Travel Tips and FAQ

As you guys might have noticed by now, I tend to visit Moscow quite frequently. My parents live there with my little brother and I usually go back there twice a year and they come here once or twice. Because I was still bon under USSR and my parents were too, Russian was the most common spoken language, and even though I grew up in the Ukraine (and my parents in Moldova) all of us were brought up speaking Russian as our first language. I didn’t actually visit Russia until 2009 when my parents moved there, a little weird isn’t it? Today I thought I would compile my Moscow Travel tips for you, the way I did with my Paris ones (I plan on doing it for every country I visit).I also often get…

Outfit Of The Day- From Russia With Love

  Happy Friday guys! I am trying to settle into the cold winter here in South Africa as I reminisce about my recent trip. I’ve been to Moscow a few times now, but I remember the first time I went there in 2011- I was blown away by its beauty. With every visit I seemed to notice that beauty a little less, but this time I made the effort to photograph a little bit of it, because Moscow is stunning! The baroque-like architecture, the little streets and the cute balcony’s, Moscow is a real show-off in the summer time. One of the landmarks that I haven’t visited yet was the Triumphal Arch of Moscow that was build in 1834 to commemorate the victory over Napoleon.I matched todays monochrome outfit to its beauty! One of…

Outfit Of The Day- It’s All In The Hat

  There is a Russian saying that goes “It's all in the hat”, and what it means is that everything is good, and the thing/project you were working on had a great outcome. I quite like that saying, and I like hats plus I like the way these photos and the outfit came out, so lets say that it worked out because its all in the hat?:) I love the straw hat for the summer, and it can be worn here, there and everywhere don’t you think?   Often I am not sure about an item before purchasing it, and go back and forth-should I or shouldn’t I? A few times I have made the wrong choice and have purchased something and then ended up hating it! And vise versa, I have regretted not…

Outfit Of The Day- Romanov Lane

  Happy Monday guys! I hope you all had a great and relaxing weekend. I am absolutely loving the summer time here in Moscow, and I dread having to leave it soon and go back to the cold! I also really miss being able to walk on the streets- in South Africa we are pretty much in our cars all the time, and you never get to just enjoy walking around your city with a good cup of coffee. So I grabbed my mom and did this in Moscow while I can! She took me to her favourite street in the city called Romanov Lane. It is named after the famous family, and this street is full of pretty building like this one!   I have been dying to invest in a sleeveless jacket…

Outfit Of The Day- Monochrome and Minimal

Something weird is happening to my style choices lately, and by that I mean that I feel like I am shifting towards a different kind of look. More and more I find myself leaning towards more simpler dresses, longer length skirts and classic patterns. Maybe it has something to do with being almost 25? My latest craze is all things stripes- tops, pants, and dresses. I love this simple pattern and I think it’s so chic, so when I spotted this dress at Zara I knew it had to be mine! I love the bias cut and the way it hugs my many curves. I am also starting to think about building a work-wardrobe, and this dress would look lovely with some tights and black court pumps. It’s a very simple dress, but I…

Outfit Of The Day – We All Scream For Ice Cream

Happy Thursday guys! It’s been such a hectic week with all of the birthday celebrations and varsity, so today I am just popping in for a cute outfit post! We shot this one in Moscow and look I am the first person to tell you how much I love using props in photo shoots! So here I used an ice cream because my top is full of them! I have had this Zara tee in my closet for a long time and I wear quite often. Whats not to love about it? Its pink and it has little ice creams all over it! It is such a fun thing to wear especially with these bright pink shorts from Cotton On. The nude heels are sadly making their last appearances on the blog (you will…
