Happy Grey


If you're ever in doubt about combining colors, just go monocrome:) Tha's exactly what i did here, mixing and layering different tones, all the way to black.  Grey is one of my favorite, it's timeless, it's a color that you can see in every piece of apparel and accessory.

This fluffy jacket is from brazilian brand Woolline. 
And of course, even though i had a complete outfit from head to toe, i just had to buy this even better matching cap when it smiled to me from the shop window (you see, i had no choice:)

The Mountain Challenge


This Christmas Holidays i had a chance to try skiing for the first time in my life!  Yes, I know, I'm from Russia, a lot of snow, haha, but I always preferred iceskating.   

There are few things more exiting than overcoming your fears!! In Austria apparently there are no green slopes,  only form blue to black, so everyone is supposed to start at intermediary-to-expert level, how great.  On top of that, we found no available classes so my boyfriend had to teach me.  Luckily, he's from Brazil where they are all expert skiers.  The first day was oh-so-terrible! Oh how much i cried, how many times i fell and I was sure that was it, something had broken.  I told myself that i'm never going to stand on skis again, and next day was looking for every reason to stay home. But something kept me going!  Somewhere, down deep, there was this adventurous side if me that pushed me forward; I wanted to go down the big mountain overlooking the village, at least once!  I started to be a little bit more confident every day, and on the 4th and last day it finally happened:  I took the (grown-up) lift to the top of the St. Anton Galzig mountain (not my baby one:).  There was no other way down if not by skis ....and I did it!  I actually managed to do a few very tuff descents, quite a few times. 

This was my mountainous victory. I felt no fear that day and i thought that i could anything! Imagine if we would make an objectives and challenge ourselves like this all the time, we can really do anything in this life!

One day in Venice


Venice could easily be the most photogenic city in the world. I was holding myself not to stop in every corner and take a picture. And the fact that we went to visit it on Christmas day made our little journey even more special because we got a chance to see Venice without tourist crowds! Walking through the empty streets of Venice was absolutely magical! I fell in love with this city and it's unique atmosphere. I'm looking forward to go back there again!
