Spring Favourites

It’s finally spring outside, and the urge to try new things intensifies by the minute. Here are some fashion pieces, beauty products, and other stuff I loved through the past month. Most will probably stay with me in summer. Summer nights in the city anyone?

Culottes

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: culottes are funny and awkward. But isn’t it what fashion’s all about? Wearing something ridiculous while keeping a straight face? Speaking of face, I was trying to smile in photos again. h3lp m3 pls

Breakfast

If you follow me on Instagram, you might notice I’m obsessed with breakfast food. I could probably eat pancakes, granola, and porridge for every meal of the day. And now I can, because there are two new awesome spots within walking distance from my house. So if you’re ever stuck in Moscow west (restaurant choices here are mostly frustrating), do come to Local or Studio for great coffee (with cute art!), all-day breakfast, and pizza. Their Russian site is here, and they are both located here.

Still expanding my nude polishes collection. This recent favourite is Milky Tea from H&M. And the one below is Essie’s Lady Like. Shop some of my other picks below.

Salon Appointments App

Universal fact: no one likes making phone calls. Thankfully, scheduling a manicure or a facial doesn’t have to involve that now. Vaniday makes it too easy. Here’s me after a hair treatment at En Vogue I booked through the app. Am I scrolling through the massage section? Possibly. I may be booking a bikini wax, but people with me on the subway don’t have to know that (remember when you had to make phone calls? Oh god). If you’re in Moscow, you can use the code Yana300 to get a 300rub discount.

Samurai Bun

I was all about space buns for both summer and winter, but now I’m becoming an adept of the samurai bun way. According to bushido, you can only wear this hairstyle with the freshest ‘fits, ok?
