The Goals


Today I'd like to talk to you about the goals in our life. Yes, sounds serious, but I just want to share some of my thoughts. Please let me know what you think.
 
I've recently watched a video, where the girl was discussing the perfect lifestyle for her. She sees it like this: just enjoy every moment, live right now and right here. You don't need any life purpose, any goal to live your life happily. There's no need in goals at all, because you're just a small sand in this universe and no one will notice you anyway. Whether you'll disappear or not, whether you'll do something or not... That's her way if thinking.

Minimalism as a lifestyle


About minimalism as a lifestyle & inspiration.

I love being focused on my life and travel, not on the material things. But you don't have to be too extreme about it. Sometimes it's hard for me being "fully minimalist" ( I mean my mind sometimes whispers it to me) due to my job - I'm a fashion photographer, stylist and graphic designer. To make it short - I'm an artists, so it's especially hard for me.

And yes, - I do have a lot of things because of it: my camera & photographic equipment, make-up (sometimes I do it for the shoots), pencils and paints for drawing, basic clothing for styling models and etc.

When I see all of these things, sometimes I get a little bit sad, because I want it to be more compact. I would like to take less things with me when I travel. But I realize that having all those things is actually necessary for me, for my job, it doesn't make me less minimalist nor a bad person.

You just need to find what works best for you and realize that that everything has to be in modelration, you don't have to too hard on yourslef. Just enjoy your journey.

And what works best for you? I will be happu to hear your opinion in the comments below.
Hugs.

Nostalgic mood. The Diary

I've been in some kind of nostalgic mood recently. 

I miss that warm air, when it's so hot and sometimes it feels like you can't even breathe. Heavy rains, the spices and exotic fruits. I love Asia, I love its atmosphere, it's mood. Sometimes I hate it though... But it's a coming-going thing like everything else in our lives... I mostly hate it because I still feel an outsider when I'm there. And I will always be. 
But it's OK. I still can observe it and get inspired by it. I still can love it and appreciate it's beauty. Sometimes I feel like I was born in a wrong place. Everybody wants to live in Europe, but when I stay there for several months, I feel like a prisoner. I get bored of that calmness... I need to shake my mind and fill it with some Asian craziness...

In transition


A winter without snow, a gentle touch of frozen flowers.
In transition...
A period of hopeless dreams and crushed expectations. The birth of new reality - strange, dark and captivating... Let's prase the new begginings, let's feel it deep inside.

Зима без снега, замерзшие цветы...
Переходный период.
Время безнадежных мечтаний и рухнувших ожиданий. Рождение новой реальности: странной, глубокой, темной и захватывающей... Время  новых начинаний, восхваления и наслаждения.

Fall inspiration



Fall is the strangest time of the year: its calmness is captivating and frightening. 

Seductive and inspiring, it’s the time to enjoy the spicy tea, stay warm in your bed and hold the love ones… Enjoying the warmth of memories, feeling either deeply depressed or full of energy to pursue your dreams.


Fall is the perfect time to make a new step in your life, look at it from the different angle and write down your goals, have a diary full of secrets. It’s a new beginning.

My fall mood board consists of calmness of the breeze, quirky fire and the bold thoughts.
Stay gold and wild, enjoy the colors of the wind and big city lights.

Fernanda Ly : Pink hair and the lone eyes



When I first saw Fernanda Ly I immediately fell in love. She’s that type of model who fits both Europe and Asia. I guess the Western world loves her because of her unusual hair and very quirky mood.  In front of the camera you can see a variety of her personalities: from the lone eyes to funky crazy smile. It’s captivating and intriguing.

On the other side, Asian market got used to that craziness and hair experiments. When I first saw Fernanda at the Louis Vuitton’s show, I thought she’s Japanese. Her style reflects their culture in so many ways. But it doesn’t matter where she’s originally from as long as she is really breath of fresh air in fashion industry.
