Adventures of a Sewing Enthusiast. Blogging from Abu Dhabi, UAE

Baby, this is getting serious…

This is a spontaneous “selfie” photoshoot, as I did it on my own with a remote & tripod! I do love night shoots, they always turn out to be glamorous and dark.

I heard that new David Guetta song called Dangerous and it gave me a bit of inspiration for the shoot. I wanted to achieve an effect of danger, sexiness and boyish swag. I think I managed. Also I believe this is the first time you see me with an Ultraviolet lipstick! I bought it in Sydney last December and used it a couple of times. That day i decided to ditch my Russian Red MAC and go for a more ghetto unusual look.

I am wearing:

Fishnet top- Bad Kitty

Black tank-top- GAP

Denim Shorts- TopShop

Suede boots with embroidery- Jeffrey Campell on Solestruck

Railway- Another photoshoot from Russia! Oh yes! I made a lot, I told you!

I kept this outdoor shoot for later, when I will be missing the greens and the nature, and adventures you get into while on vacation. 

This was a beautiful day in Gus-Hrustalny, home town of my bestfriend Sonia, who is the master behind numerous of my photoshoots. We went on a bike ride and I was shit-scared ‘cause I haven’t ridden one in ages! But when do I ever say “no” to something ‘cause of fear? Correct, never! 

This summer vacation I must say I fulfilled all my long-term plans, including a photoshoot on a Railway! Of course, it didn’t happen without an adventure! I dropped my new Ray Bans somewhere on the way, and realised it only 3 hours later, after Sonia & I rode through a forest and checked out a Folk Rock Festival. Luckily, we found my shades! I dropped them in a secluded area and they resembled a foil anyway, so no one took notice.

I am wearing:

Lace beige top- Iconic

Grey tank top- GAP

Denim shorts- Topshop

Sneakers- Atmosphere

Heart pendulum- Aldo

Home Sweet Home- Last month I have finally fulfilled my long-time dream of living alone. And that has been the main reason for rare blog posts- I haven’t connected internet yet, so for now I blog from my phone, from work, from friends’ homes!

I will tell you one thing- it is a great feeling to be on your own. Not only because you’re free to do whatever you want, but also because you can finally listen to your thoughts, and your thoughts alone. Having all these things and matters under your control makes you more responsible and content. Yes, there is a bit of stress there, but you learn to keep a cool head and deal with it.

So in other words, it is an awesome feeling and I strongly believe that everyone should live a part of their life alone, before getting married or starting a family. Discover yourself first, before trying to discover others. 

As you guessed, I have been spending a lot of time hunting for inspiration and home ideas. Pinterest has been very helpful in this. I finally truly appreciate that App! 

I am a little worried about how my apartment will look in the end. I do hope I have a good taste in decor. Till now my friends who visited left me with compliments and that leaves me optimistic! I am very lucky with them, they have been very helpful and supportive, gifting useful things for home and sorting out  a few issues. Love you guys!

ICONS Remain- A couple of weeks ago I had a shoot for Iconic, the UAE-based brand, and their new collection, which is getting released today!

I have just received the official photos and would like to share them with you! This season Iconic goes all classic and vintage, with rich fabrics, prints and heavy sparkly accessories- all for fabulous events, whether a prom or a grande celebration. 

In this shoot we tried to get inspired by Audrey Hepburn’s iconic image and her slightly preppy style.

I am absolutely in love with this indigo dress with a tulle underskirt for more flare. The heavy necklace and earrings completed the ensemble perfectly, sparkling like crystals, adding a mysterious glow.

I am wearing:

Dress, necklace, earrings, ring- ICONIC Stores

We wish for the skies, forgetting that there is so much at our feet.
We spend billions on progress, which only increases greed, pollution and immorality.
Human nature- we are never satisfied with what we have. We always want to place more distance between us and them, the “animals”. “Are you an animal?!”- one would say, forgetting that animals don’t do what humans do.
They live in harmony with what surrounds them. They hurt each other only when it’s time to feed. We, on the other hand, hurt each other all the time- out of jealousy, hate, pride, money, boredom.
They don’t dump their garbage every where. We, despite having a dustbin nearby and two arms leave our rubbish all over the place.
They don’t go around talking about their religion and righteousness. We, on the other hand, talk of it all the time, failing to follow the basic foundations of religion… “Don’t kill, don’t steal…” 
They don’t start wars killing the innocent. We go to war all the time just to use up our military supplies before they expire and to kick-start our economy, which we ourselves exhausted in the first place…
So, don’t be such a “human”! Be the creature worth walking this Earth! Because, if anybody is going to Heaven, it’s them and not us!
