¡¿Donut bother me?!

Hello hello hello!
What i was scared about the most, had happened.. me not having the time to do anything but school, school and… school:/ as i've posted in Facebook, i spent my entire weekend hardworking and being totally antisocial to get some free time and less homework's, so i could take some pictures of my favorite outfits of the week and write to you my favorite followers and dear visitors (which i hope will become followers hihii) It's been 4 weeks, 1 month of being an IB student, and guess what? i need holidays. i need summer. and i need time, like how about one more day in a week? one more saturday? I was also gonna start gym and while the weather is so great meet some friends, stay outside with M instead of being locked at home while its raining, but no! All the teachers decided to give me short deadlines, 1000 words essay on topics i don't even understand:/ why can't they asses my language, linguistic features through my blog? ahahha I'd have 7s.. or not :/ 
Well, the day i used this outfit, my dear M decided to cheer me up after school, (after seeing me in this shirt) and take me to Starbucks eat some donutsss! How much i love them! Sadly, we don't have donkin' donuts in Portugal.. I'd be their loyal constant consumer, 24/7!I'm such a fatty… haha well I'm happy, thats what matters! :) 
Oh, the jeans!! So basically, they are my grandmas, from her long-time-ago teenage years! I think I've never seen jeans that are so old, so fashionable, so good quality and in such a good state! My jeans, die after what, 1-2 years? even less.. what happened to the quality of clothes? They are Levi's original mom jeans, she bought them somewhere in europe and she said they were relatively cheap comparing to the prices now, so.. wait a second, the quality goes down, prices go up??? I always wanted this type of jeans, and when she saw me shopping in Urban Outfitters, buying jeans for 70$, (thank god she saw me!!!) and told me to wait till she comes next time and she'll give me! And so she did, and so you see me so happy wearing them almost every day!! YEY:) (Thank you granny, if you're reading this <3 )
Details? Easy Peasy, Top: Forever 21, Shoes?… simple white snickers god knows where i bought them:/  and backpack from Accessorize:) super cuttie! 
Hope you enjoy my original photos (my good camera broke:( so sad… gonna have to buy new one, but for now, playing with my lil babe GoPro :) 
Follow met everywhere:) 
P.S. Facebook page got hundreds of likes in such a short time!! Thank you guys <3 hope you spread the word about my blog <3

On the Artsy Side

Hey there!
Today, I'll be sharing with you my artsy side (and not only mine but my families as well), and not as but still some outfit details!
So today, it was the opening of my Grandma's Art Festival 'Vera' (link here)! It's been happening for 7 years already, all though only in Moscow, but this year they made it in Portugal! The seventh - lucky time - they decided to move into a different place and join all the cultures and traditions and make it very international festival and celebration of Art! It will be on in Cordoaria Nacional in Belem, Lisbon until 21 and then at night of the 21 you will be able to see me in Casino Estoril, Salao Preto e Prata (The Black and Silver Salon) wearing a gala dress for the awards ceremy of the festival! I'll be talking and translating stuff, so I'm inviting you too see me and enjoy the gallery for the rest of the week, any time you want! The festival, collected masters of their techniques and ideas from different countries! Hopefully, there will be more people coming in every day, so next year, they will do it again, just cos i LOVE those things! all though, it has to be MY will to go to a gallery, maybe do a transcription, take some pictures or just stare at pieces for the time i want, because if someone makes me go to an exhibition and do all those stuff, I'll become so demotivated and the only thing i'll be thinking about, is when this $#!T will finish:/ So this time, i took advantage of this Artsy side of my family, in making this festivel/exhibition and went to pleasure my deep passionate ME:) 
Since it was an opening (which we actually got late too, and didn't see my Granny cutting the red ribbon) i still had to wear something classy.. But then i though, this year, it's pretty small, so i'm not gonna 'waste' something WOW, if there not gonna be show it too, so i chose my very nice dress from Zara (wasn't hard to guess :) ) and my favorite booties (as always)! Looking : nice, elegant, girly and even casually dressed up! So i guess i've completed and ticked all the boxes in 'how you should get dressed for you grandma's festival opening!' *applause to me please*
I really hope you'll find some time, an hour or so to visit the gallery (all the infer is in their website - link above), and also join me in Casino in Estoril on the 21st! 
well now: #omw to do all the homeworks i left behind thinking miracle will happen and they will get done by themselves.. well no it didn't:/ So…

 Oh And After everything calmed down, we went outside take some pictures with longer shatter speed and here you have the results! I think it came out super NICE!

Vogue Fashion Night Out in Lisbon

Hello there!
Few days ago, my friends and i decided to spend our thursday night together, walking around crowded streets with lights and music, free drinks ( :) )
 and loads of free stuffs as we all love some free presents hihih 
This was my first Fashion Night Out since i moved here, but I've heard a lot about it, and this made me want to enjoy it to the maximum, so anywhere I'd see stands to take pictures I'd make my girls stay in huge lines (i bet they hate me for that) but it was worth it, specially for photo-memories addict like me, as i 'shot-gunned' to keep all the photos :P Sadly, nothing lasts forever and we had to rush around busy streets of  Lisbon in two little hours we had, before the shops would close… The lesson of that night was: Leave house earlier and plan your routs around.. But even though we left too late, we didn't plan anything we still had fun + the weather was nice and warm with light fresh breeze, perfect for the celebration of fashion! For a person that gets cold when it goes below 20 degrees, (yes, thats me!) and (yes that's unusual for a Russian person), i was prepared to get cold so i took my cozy light pink sweater from Zara:) Alctually everything of this outfit is from Zara except the top.. oh Well, i'm a total Zara Addict! (who isn't??) 
While choosing the outfit, i thought as if i was in NYC or London or Paris, and hopefully one day I'll attend a Fashion Week in one of those places, or maybe all three at once, since they are in different days! Thanks Snapchat update i could enjoy the outfits of American fashionistas, the videos of runways with amazing decorations and ideas portrayed through the textiles and accessories! Ahhh I wish i was there!! So, the i took some time choosing my look! Since i believe summer is NOT over, i chose the light colors to stand out in black dark crowd of sad people :/ haha and also because i just love the Zara skirt and i wanted to wear it so bad i just needed an event to do so! Comfy boots to walk around and simple (or maybe not so simple) but very pretty white top!

Oh btw, I'm also participating in this Vogue Fashion Click Contest! (..and i really wanna win and become one of their contributors!)
 I hope you'll help me and vote for my outfit (I'll put the link later on..:) Don't miss it! (I'll also share it on Facebook so don't forget to like the page here:

Hope you like my Outfit :) Did you go to the VFNO in Lisbon? Any funny stories you know -> they go to comments ;)

Hey there!
Oh my god, i feel so bad for not having time to write anything and leaving you without any update for more than a week! (oh no! 2 weeks!!!).. Im so terrible! but its explainable! With school, new subjects and specially having Art back in my life, i completely forgot how it was having to spend my free time on drawing and researching to make my book 'richer'! I also got a new thing which is CAS! If you don't know what it is, its basically that you need to do 150 hours of Creativity, action and service! While doing those, we also need to keep a blog! Isn't that just amazing doing what you love and loving what you do for school and getting points for it!? You can check my activities (and even follow me) on - you will see a complete different me, wearing my almost pajama clothes i don't care about, doing stuff in mud or dirt or under the rain (which happened this weekend on our camp shah!) I was so happy when they said we need to keep a blog, i just love writing! By the way, i was thinking about writing some articles like mini Carrie Bradshaw with her Sex in the City, I'd wanna write something small like that for my school magazine! Any ideas on topics that would be interesting and appropriate to write about for school audience? 
So now about the outfit!:
I had the photos ready for some time, i only needed to write something and edit them! I wore this outfit to meet up my friends the week after my birthday! I love the skirt, specially when i walk down the street or doing the stairs (wore it to school and couldn't stop staring at the back of it) flowing and waving down like a river on the stairs! I'm not the biggest fan of crop tops (yes, there are people like that! ahah) but yet, i found it super nice choice for this skirt! Obviously, my dear gold sandals and the look came out very nice, girly and summery, which on the last sunny days before the rainy autumn where just what i wanted to feel like! 
So here you go:

P.s. 1. check out my CAS blog; 2. think about some topics for my school magazine 
3. don't forget to follow my blog, all right? and for more 'daily' updates (so you know I'm still alive) my Instagram : manyashaa
