Thank god it’s Fridaaay! Friday, the happiest day of the week- well, at least for me. However, now that it’s the summer time everyday is like Friday. Oh those nonchalant warm breezy days, when the sun rays shine longer than the lights of the moon… I hope they would last forever. Overhearing the majority moan and groan about the fact that those golden days will soon be over makes me realize how close I am to sitting back at my desk in September with a pile of work laid in front of me. But why is it easier for us to close our eyes in front of the present, missing out the bright side of our lives in a blink? It’s only July. So many more things to come, to look forward to. So many more memories to be made. Why can’t we take a sip from the glass that is half full- and not empty. Our society prefers to dramatize about our everyday doings, turning the tinniest obstacles into severe complications and dilemmas which indeed prevent us from living how we would have desired to instead. We ignore the things that actually matter, the things that we want. After building mountains of worries, doubts and fears of things that ‘could’ happen we immediately decide to throw away our dreams. Then what’s the point of it all? Ask yourself.
And back to the bright side 🙂 We might not have cookies, but the weekend is sure to come. So enjoy the rest of your awesome Friday!

Aaand I’m back to my little writing journal! Ironically, today happens to be Bleu de Blonde’s one year anniversary! Crazy, right?! It’s been a year I have been bothering you guys with my bizarre posts, and having to think that last year the same person sat behind this very computer, typing up her idea on a virtual screen is absolutely unbelievable. A year filled with a whole load of travelling to the most incredible places I have visited; Russia, America, Greece, Andorra, France, Spain and Italy- those will be the memories I will never forget. Hopefully, this year will be just as great with much more to experience and explore.
As to my last post, 5 months and counting, I would like to share with you my recent discovery of the country that we should all praise for the existence of pizza, pasta and gelato ♥ Italy and its capital Rome- the home to the Vatican as well as landmark art and ancient ruins. Its every street spirited with the energy of a once most powerful empire, every house a well-known museum or a remarkable piece of art, and every individual a fashion icon. Personally, I was swayed by the power of gelato. Never thought ice-cream could taste so good! A recommendation I should make would be, San Crispino on the street of Trevi (pretty close to the fountain of Trevi), the place offers tons of flavours to choose from starting from the basics (which are not any less gorgeously delicious) to the very unusual ones like pizza and liquorice! Another place to try out would be Hedera, which is 5min walk from the Vatican City, selling its finest gelato in cannoli cones and of course the Magnum Pleasure Store placed in the centre of Rome. Seems like a perfect place for me, combing delish food and the beauty of the contrast in landscapes…

Feels good to be back 🙂

Hola! Como estas? (my spanish skills are boss and these are the only 2 phrases I know). I have been away for a while and I’m super excited to tell you all about my winter holidays at Andorra. For those who don’t know, which is actually the majority of people who have been curious about my vacation, Andorra is the smallest country in Europe that lies between France and Spain. It is known for its unbelievably grand skiing resort at the Pyrenees that is really popular with the Spanish, the French, the Russians and the locals of course. The city itself is really beautiful and charming. The sunrise over the horizon of the slopes can be seen even from the centre of town, Andorra La Vella. The streets are small and narrow and the architecture is very vintage, in contrast to the vast assortment of shopping you can do during your stay! However, I personally cherished the pleasure of resting in one of the creperies or relishing delicious lunch at an old-fashioned pizzeria after a tiring day of winter sport activity.
Our morning routine begun by reaching Encamp (the transportation station to Grandvalira, the central range of the resort) from where we took the ski lift to our snowy adventure. The path to the slope is stunning. Travelling 100 meters above the ground, you can witness snow trails of forest inhabitants or even see a rabbit. Floating around in one those cabins during these 5 days of skiing, I realized how lucky I am to travel around the world to such sensational places like Andorra. All you need in life to lift your spirit is to take a moment and gaze at the beauty of nature- and I did, which really inspired me. This inspiration encouraged my sisters and I to create a Youtube Channel, Three Dimensional, where we will introduce our everyday lives and travelling through the use of videos. Our first video has been dedicated to our time spent at the mountains during this Christmas break. To find the video on Youtube search for “Andorra Travels”, hope you will enjoy it. More vlogs are yet to come! 🙂
Have a wonderful weekend ♥

I can’t express how beautiful the nature at the Pyrenees was…
It’s the mid of October, and I’m still remembering the warm sunny days in LA. Traversing through the wild beaches and savoring the tranquil environment of the city makes me miss the nonchalant days of summer.
Los Angeles is definitely the place to be. The centre destination for loads of shopping and quality time spent by the grand Pacific in a Mexican restaurant, for example. You can simply take a walk down the Santa Monica Blv or even feed the wild albatrosses with some leftover burrito bread- a very amusing task to be honest! The freedom of this city is enduring. A few minutes away from centre you can find yourself on the crown of the Hollywood Hills watching over the metropolitan all the way to the ocean.
A truly free-spirited and carefree place for a sweet escape out of the hectic reality.

Hooray! I’m finally at my mother-land, the heart of Russia- Moscow City. My Moscow Day 1 begun with an appetizing breakfast of pancakes with poppy seeds topped with black and white chocolate. Later that day we walked all the way to the amusing Red Square to meet up with our good friends from Cyp. The view of the area was brilliant; I couldn’t help taking so many pictures- I felt like a total tourist! :p Crowds of foreigners, locals and people like me enclosed the incredible landmark. I can’t fully describe my admiration of the astonishing architecture of the place!
After a glimpse of sight- seeing, our company came up with the most creative idea about our quite unusual lunch at the meadows of the great Gorky Park. The sushi rolls were even more delicious to enjoy in such beautiful surroundings of fountains, greenery and a peaceful atmosphere. We then took a stroll down to the embankment where you can watch the ultimate romantic scenery of the sparkling midnight bridge… and took more pictures 🙂
Ура! Я, наконец, на моей родине, в самом сердце России- Москве. Мой первый день в Москве начался с аппетитным завтраком из блинов с маком покрыты темный и белым шоколадом. В тот же день мы шли всю дорогу до неописуемой Красной Площади, чтобы встретиться с нашими хорошими друзьями с Кипра. Вид на площадь был блестящим; Я не могла не сделать столько снимков- чувствовала себя туристом! :р Толпы иностранцев, местных жителей и людей, как я окружили эту невероятную достопримечатеьность. Я не могу полностью описать мое восхищение поразительной архитектуре этого места!
После проблеска осмотра достопримечательностей, нашей компании пришла в голову самая творческай идея о нашем довольно необычным обеде на поляне великого парка Горького. Суши роллы были еще более вкусными, когда ими можно насладиться в таких живописных окрестностях фонтанов, зелени и мирной атмосфере. Потом мы пошли на прогулку на набережную, где можно ивидеть отличный романтический пейзаж из сверкающего ночного моста … и зделали больше фотографий 🙂

How can you just not take a selfie at the Red Square?
After an extensive research of articles on “How do I run a blog?”, numerous videos and advises I have seen on the Internet about fashion journals, I have taken the courage to pursue the dream. My conclusion was that a blog is about who you are, who you want to be or becoming. Fashion bloggers are just artists, illustrating their canvas with their everyday adventures, charming clothing and styling skills. So, the creation of Bleu de Blonde was a way of expressing myself. Here, I want to share my ideas of vision in fashion. Summertime seemed like the perfect opportunity for the outbreak, as I can devote myself to the must-have trends of summer, travelling and Bleu de Blonde. Really hope you will enjoy it, stay tuned!
После обширного исследования статей о “Как запустить блог?”, многочисленных видео и советов я видела в Интернете о модных журналах, я набралась смелости осуществить свою мечту. Мой вывод, что блог о том, кто вы есть, кем вы хотите быть или стать. Модные блоггеры всего художники, иллюстрирующие их холст из их повседневнных приключений, очаровательной одежды и навыков стилистики. Таким оброзом, создание Bleu de Blonde был способ самовыражения. Здесь я хочу поделиться своими идеями о видение в моде. Лето показалось идеальной возможностью для начало, так как я могу отдаться маст-хав тенденциам лета, путешествиям и Bleu de Blonde. Очень надеюсь что вам понравится, следите за обновлениями!
