new year time

28th of January and the last post about New Year. Doing it pretty quick, huh?
The thing is that I have a bunch of photos I took during New Year, which sum up the mood and the feeling of this marvellous time. Enjoy :)


...evening at the theatre. No, I wasn't screaming. I laugh like that :)

...celebrating new year with my comitee.

...doing my Mom's hair. Kind of our tradition since I was four. Involves makeup sometimes :)



...I've finally tried Sally Hansen Salon Effects which was on sale at Douglas. And I was really disappointed. It looks really nice, easy to apply...but it started falling off (?) the tips of my nails the same evening. Maybe I did something wrong...but it is not for me to pay twice more than you can pay to buy normal nailpolish (Sally Hansen for example!) which will last at least a bit longer...



...a weirdo.

...festive cooking.





...having guests.

...decorated TV-set at my room.

present post

First of all, congrats to me! I'm finally done with my exams (I passed the last one yesterday), so now you will hear more from me.

As I've said, now it is time for a present post. I promise, there's only one more post related for New Year coming and I'm done!


A hoodie. Letters a greek, but Russian-like and the abbrevation means something like "Organization comitee of Physicist's Day". From my organization comitee, obviously.

Home-made soap. So sweet!



Konad stamping set. I quickly tried it - I definetely need to train more, and I really like it and look forward to buy some more palettes (?)

A little super-cute pine tree!

Toy giraffe :)



A stand and a pedal for my composer - things I've asked my parents about. It's good when you need a thing and get it. Now I have some more motivation to play.

An IPhone case from my brother. Again, super-cute



A Pandora bracelet.

Swarovski earrings and necklace and Chezh chocolate from my friend.

nye

Sorry, that I still talk about my New Year, although there are more than two weeks went. I'm dealing with my exams since 3rd of January and have totally no time to make posts.

So, my New Year Eve. As I've mentioned before, I spent it with my family, didn't go out and just stayed at home, and I've surprizingly loved it, night was really cozy and home-y. Just let the pictures talk for me :)




Hello Mr. President

Presents unwrapping (present post coming next!)

Playing piano with some new piano gadgets!

My Mom's very first contribution to my blog. Maybe I have to teach her to make proper outfit photos to share with you? Anyway, I was wearing my sparkling Promod dress again with some jewellery and new red hair :)

guess what?!

Guess what did I buy just before New Year? Sometimes I get bored with my hair... and I have to change something. Dramatically. As far as I've already cut my hair rather short, this time I decided to try to change my haircolor, and bought some red henna from Lush!

I've always been scared of colouring hair cause you may choose something slightly wrong and damage your hair, or you won't like the result but you can't change something... I don't know what about you, but I'm not into such a risk.

So henna, called "Caca Rouge" appeared to be the best option for me. It contains a lot of oils inside, so it doesn't damage your hair, it has a good inctruction, and I loved the result! My hair is not that bright as on photos, it's because of flashing, but it has a nice red shade! I have some more henna for two colorings and yes, I'm gonna do it again!


Comes in a bar like chocolate. A lot of people were complaining about the smell (I've read some feedback). But I like that grassy-oily smell of henna.

Looks...not very nice :)



New haircolor!

i bought

Hello everyone!
Well, these are things which I bought as New Year presents (I've probably mentioned this before - in Russia we celebrate New Year rather than Christmas and that's the time we give each other presents). Sorry for being silent for more than a week - exams are killing me slowly, I've passed three of six and hopefully not going insane before the end!
Anyway, these are my presents, Christmas and New Year have passed by now, but probably, if you need some inspiration that will help you. Enjoy!


Topshop socks with planets for my friend. She is an astronomer, so I think this is a genius present!

Pants for my friend, Topshop. I've mentioned it in my last year present's post (this year coming later). Me and Irina have a tradition of giving each other pants every year, but actually I didn't do it for a few years...so now I've bought them for all years at once.



Pandora charms for my Mom. I think the matryoshka one (traditional Russian doll) is so cute!

Hair products for my Grandma. I've never heard about this brand before, just wanted to present her something more luxury than usual things from supermarket.

Levis belt for my Dad.

T-shirts for my brother, Bershka.

Phone case for my friend, River Island. I think the tassel is super-cute!
