All I Wish.

dasha-5207-2
All I wish I had in Winter is good weather, which means average temperatures – certainly not the freezing cold we are blessed with these days. Every time I have to leave my place or my office or whatever indoor heated space I am at, my bones literally hurt at the feeling of the grueling cold. And I don’t even live in Russia!!! I have no clue how that people survive.
But I have to make myself clear – I hate being dressed like a person from the North Pole. Nothing is more uncomfortable than having 6 layers of clothes. It is way too much work to get them on/off several times a day, plus somehow I always manage to wrinkle my main outfit, which is usually under two sweaters, one scarf and the coat. I admire and love to see [on others] layered clothes – I am certain that not everybody has that skill, and by that I mean the skill to masterfully mix textures and colors in order to have a perfect outfit in the end.
I am not saying this is a typical outfit for me in December, but I wish it was, so it was a pleasure to prepare and get these pictures done by Dore.

Master of Disaster.

IMG_7835

Do you have that kind of friend that is super clumsy? The one that enters the room and trips three times till she/he gets to the couch? And I mean a small room, not a ballroom:))

Well that is me – probably I stumble or drop something when I am introduced to someone new. Or I send the right mail to the wrong person. I forget birthdays, I daydream on the streets and I get scared of my own shadow. Even while I was writing this text I dropped a glass of water on my phone.

But that is not the reason why I write this. I have written this weeks blog posts during the weekend, like a good girl. But of course, on Monday, while I was trying to choose which one to post first, I managed to delete both. I have no clue how I managed to do that, I must be extremely talented in the clumsy department.

So, although it may come as a surprise, I never fall wearing heels.

Karma.

a3
When a door closes, another opens. Or maybe a window. Anyhow, this just happened to me – a huge door just slapped the hell out of me, and, 2 hours later, after I was crushed, a dream of mine came true. Life is so weird with it’s ups and downs, that I personally never see coming, it’s crazy. And in a weird way, every time something negative happened to me, karma was there to turn it all around.
I hate negative situations mainly because they get the worst out of me. Most of the time I can keep it in me and I can act respectful. This time around wasn’t my proudest reaction, even though I believe every word I said – it’s only that I wish I could have said nicer. The Jackie O on my shoulder is very disappointed. But I promise myself, this is the one and only time in my life I reacted or will react this way. It’s not worth it to me to go that low – the only thing I got out of it is regret. So, as my bff said to me once “boobs up” lol. Life goes on and I better make the best of it.

In Memoriam.

 dasha-7059
The feeling of lazy summer days is so far away from me right now, it is more like I didn’t even have a Summer this year. Well actually, there wasn’t much of a Summer – not much Sun, no heat waves, no lazy days by the pool and no holidays. What can I say, I will try again harder next year and I will certainly succeed, mainly because two years without Summer holidays is an unacceptable concept for me.
Meanwhile autumn, rain, [freezing] cold, wind, humidity, longer workdays and shorter daylight are setting in, to my great disappointment. At least my birthday and Christmas are getting closer and I can practice my not-so-discreet-manner-of-telling-family-and-friends-what-I-want-to-get. I am pretty good at that.

Dreams.

 dasha-6880
Dreams are magic. They are my core essence, they are the motivation behind everything I am, everything I do. They make me want to wake up in the early morning and they keep me up at night. They make me fight, run, work and work out in the middle of the night, eat uncooked vegetables for a week or even make me drink only green tea and water, and give up sweets and nachos. It’s pretty amazing what we are capable to do in order to achieve something we dream about.
There is only one big but in all this – courage. Actually two big buts – there is also the utmost necessary will – I/we have to be willing to give up many comfortable habits in order to get where I/we want.
But at the end, it’s all worth it.
Realising a tiny dream can fill me with positive energy, joy and unmeasurable happiness. It makes me feel like I am in my own personal fairytale and I am floating on cloud 20.

Sunshine.

dasha-7137

The best thing about Autumn is when there is no Autumn around, but more something like a Spring-Summer day. When the Sun is out, when it’s hot outside, when the Sun rays are softly kissing my skin. When I can stay on a terrace and have never-ending chats with my friends. Or long walks in the park. It just gives me a summer-holiday feeling, similar to the ones I had when I was a small girl with big dreams. I am just a bit taller now.
Besides all the previously mentioned pro’s there’s another big one – I don’t feel like a polar bear with one too many layers of clothing as I usually am when it is cold, I am eternally freezing when it’s cold outside.
This weekend was pretty much that – a rupture from reality in a completely carefree state of mind. As a bonus I could wear short shorts which are some of my favourite clothing items – no one can be sad/negative/blue wearing shorts – or at least I can’t. They instantly make me smile.
I hope everyone had an amazing weekend with awesome weather.
xoxo
