pictures on film / part four

YA-А-АY! i am extremely excited to finally be able to share with you a fresh portion of photos taken on film. it took me two months to finish two films, develop, scan and get them back. i would be happy to say that summer means more pictures and more posts, but i am afraid it is no my case this year. anyway i am doing my best. most pictures were taken in kiev, but a few of them are from dnipropetrovsk, my home town. there is a lot of nature, a couple of girls, who motivate and inspire me, as well as a few pictures of me. i really enjoy this whole process of film photography and i hope to take more pictures and to capture more special moments in the future.

(online) shopping

i love shopping, and i am sure you do too. i remember the time when i bought something on a regular basis, not often, but from time to time i did. every purchase was a source of excitement and happiness. i was looking forward to wearing this or that piece, mixing it with other things, that i owned, and then going somewhere enjoying my new outfit. for some this may sound crazy, but if you have always loved clothes, like i have, you know exactly what i am talking about. this is why it is a pleasure to not only buy things, but to even simply look at them and try some on. when i have time, i can spend an hour or two walking around stores and daydreaming about buying everything i like and wearing it all. i did it a lot in paris, because cos and &other stories are heaven. the proof is here, in one of my first posts on the blog. yes, i take lots of pictures while i try clothes on. again, it might seem crazy or stupid, but believe it or not i started doing it way before posting any of it online, so it is not about posing or sharing or whatever. the point is in fixing the moment when you were wearing something you really liked. yes, you may not be able to buy it or maybe you doubt that you will wear it enough, so you do not buy it, but who said you could not enjoy it? no one did. that is why you should enjoy it as much as you can!

quotes part two / reading

five months after i published "quotes part one", it is time for a second part. i am sincerely surprised, that i did not do it much earlier, as i constantly find and save new inspirational and motivational phrases. sometimes i share them with someone close, sometimes i just re-write them in my various notebooks. today i would like to share some of them with you, and i will do it differently - i won`t take five quotes from different sources, instead i will take ten (!) from one book, that i have previously mentioned in this post. i am talking about "god never blinks" by regina brett. actually, i decided to do it right away after finishing the book, but, as you see, it took me some time to get my hands on this post and write it in the end. shall we begin?

meet gloria garcía

i love my "meet" section, but unfortunately it has not been updated for a while. and i am sorry for it! i hope to have regular posts in it in the future, but for now we have what we have. today i would like you to meet a very talented illustrator from spain - gloria garcia. i mentioned her work in my previous post, and i was very lucky, because gloria responded right away! i have already told you that i am a fan of illustrations. from my point of view, they make every article so much more outstanding and special. this is why when i found out about gloria cooperating with us for thefashioncrowd.com, i was extremely happy. to have an illustrator, who is ready to create beautiful works for your texts is a real treasure! anyway, i should stop talking right now and let you meet gloria or gloglo garcia! by the way, you can follow her on instagram and tumblr.

- what being twenty is like for you? 
- for me it is a time to discover oneself, to learn and to have good experiences. 
- what is your biggest inspiration? 
- it is very difficult to name one. i find it in painting, fashion photography and it-girls from the 60-s.

first summer day

well, well, well! summer came the day before yesterday and i did not even notice. it is such an unusual feeling, but i do not care about its arrival anymore. why? because for the first time in many-many years it does not really mean anything. before, summer meant holidays and three months without school, afterwards it was all about having exams in june and then two months without university. however, now there is no change. i will just keep on working, which may sound sad, but i am excited, to be honest!

thirty first of may felt just like the first of june. i had no excitement or anticipation. i did not even think of it. i realized that it was summer already only because i was going to write about it. by the way, i am crazy and i am not only writing about summer here, but also doing a special post for the fashion crowd to follow up (my favourite editor and mentor) bette`s summer plans with my own. this is why i am not going to tell you that much here and i will make you follow the link to read a longer post there next week.
