buoys

I loved that location the second I've spotted it. Doesn't it look cool? It certainly doesn't to my mom, who expressed genuine curiosity why would anyone would want to do a photoshoot in a pile of old rusty buoys! haha :) But come on, at least it's not something you see at every corner :) What do you think, guys?

What wasn't cool was climbing those buoys! Challenging is an understatement :) Very difficult to do in flats, practically impossible in heels. I regretted not taking those rock climbing classes! 

Hope you guys will like the pictures!

lucky

This summer I've come to the conclusion (and I'm sure everyone living by the sea/ocean/lake/any other water source would back me up), that living by the sea is pretty lucky. What got me to that thinking was the evening I've spent with the lovely Lana and Yulia. The weather was great, so we just grabbed a latte, walked along the seaside, sat at the chaise-longues and enjoyed the views. Breezy wind, the smell of sea air, live music from the seaside cafes, lights reflected in the water, takeout food, great company…. lucky are those, who can treat themselves to such an evening anytime they want!  

For the walk I've put together an outfit of denim shorts and comfortable loose fitting cotton shirt. I also added a cute bag and comfortable ballerinas. And voilà, a casual outfit for an evening stroll is ready!

I'm wearing: a topshop shirt, new look shorts, second hand ballerinas and bag.

graffiti

Here are the pictures from the photoshoot I mentioned in the last post. We've passed that graffiti wall on the way to the restaurant and just couldn't help taking some pictures in front of it. Hope you guys will like them :)
 
 I'm wearing: new look top and wedges, second hand skirt and clutch.

making the family proud

My favourite cousin has graduated from university! Really? Already? Please, not so soon! I realize I sound a lot like the proud parents, who can't believe their kid is all grown up. But still, it seems only yesterday I started my freshman year and she was a junior. I thought it would take aaaages till Yulia’s graduation would come... I'll miss seeing that gorgeous lady around the campus! Anyways, enough about my feelings! :)

Yulia looked stunning! I loooved her black&white one shoulder dress, and the sleek pony tail, and the simple black heels! Elegant, sophisticated and feminine! Call me biased, but she was the most beautiful at that ceremony! But let's forget about the looks; I'm so proud she's graduated from uni with a red diploma! Smart and beautiful!



looove that picture! so silly!
After the ceremony we went out to Bar Italia. And it was great! It's just opened.The interior is beautiful, the prices are reasonable and the food is delicious! We've also got mussels as a free appetizer from the chef! Yay! 

The only drawback was that I've never eaten mussels before. Neither did my friends. So no one knew the proper way to eat them. I tried to use my fork and my knife, and if you've eaten mussels you'd know it's not so easy to do it using that cutlery :) As it turns out you're supposed to eat them with and empty shell, using it as tweezers to get the mussel out. When the waiter came back, you should've seen the look on his face. I bet he had a good laugh! haha :) I really need to read a book on the table etiquette! :) Have you guys had any embarrassing stories in the restaurants?



Later on in the evening we went out for the drinks, met with my cousin again, took some more pictures, and had a lot a lot a lot of fun!
