My Fashion Criminal Records

Hello there! 
Popping in to proudly say Im back on track with my ex addiction! Tumblr! 
I remember the days, nights, lessons and afternoons i used to spend with my scrolling down syndrome, saving pictures, reblogging onto my page just for my own personal interest, so i always have them in one place and in the end it started to grow and become my personality. Id share my mood, my likes, my taste and ideas for future photoshoots or posts, outfit ideas or just dream clothes and dream shoes which in the end creed a copy of me but with pictures! but then i stopped, can't remember why but now I'm back on track! 
Heres my link:
If you have tumblr, leave the link in comments Ill follow you! Love when my feed it exploding haha 

Have a good week, lovelies <3

Rebels.. | What is Normal Anyways?

Finally found the time to edit the photos and write you something..(on my free lesson on which, theoretically, i should be studying) ! 
I can officially admit that the overload wave of IB work, including 5 written tasks, 2 presentations, 1 book analysis i haven't actually read; everything that I´ve left for the last minute, had crushed my paradise beach of no worries and rainbow unicorns.. I started this week looking fresh and relaxed after the best weekend i could ever have but today, thursday the 22nd, I'm wearing my designer eye bags, my ´wanna be Jessica Hart´ buns and uggs, as last nights studying till late made my bed very jealous so she couldn't let me go today morning till my mom came in my room, shouting as if there was a fire in the house... 
Looking thought the photos makes my mind go away and review the movie-like experiences and adventures we had.. My imagination is that wild that i manage to put music in the background and view us from the third person which makes it veeery movie like.. but then my teacher be like ´Masha! Masha answer the question!´ and ruins all the magic in my head and butterflies in my tummy and i go back to algebra..calculus.. graphs... 
Remembering that day, as i said on my Photo Diary Post, the weather was surprisingly pleasant to wear my Ripped Jeans from H&M and an Olive Parka from Zara! My comfies Timberlands where literally like Range Rovers - Shoes for all roads ahah perfect for Portuguese Calcada and roads going up and down! A Simple t shirt with philosophical phrase ´What is normal anyways?´.. i don't usually buy or wear shirts with phrases or words cos usually they have no real smart meaning and even dumb sometimes.. which annoys me so id rather wear a plane shirt than something that doesn't make sense. But this tee from Stradivarius attracted me a lot and after i bought it i was thinking a lot what is normal anyways? So heres a question for you! Tell me your opinions in comments, id love to know! 
P.s. Im also planning on showing you the way you can us these ripped jeans for more classy type of event hihi :) Stay tuned <3

enjoy the happy photos of me in my wonderland:)

PORTO - Day 2 - City Centre

Bom dia! :)
hehe I´m into portuguese mood today! So there it was second day, waking up with little headache of previous night´s dinner and wine tasting day we were ready to visit the ´other side´. After cute breakfast in bed made by M, we left ´our house´ to go to the centre of Porto, which meant crossing the bridge and walking up and down hills so comfy clothes were the best choice for the day. 
As a very organised person i hate waisting time on wondering around, as an antisocial person i also don't like asking people the directions so months before we left to Porto Ive done a plan, with routes, big maps printed and all the places we had to visit. 
As the time was around lunch time and our tummies.. id rather sale the wales inside our tummies were about to perform, we decided it was better to eat first. Where to eat in the city centre? Ive bought before and so the first pin drop on our map was Majestic Cafe, which we took a lot of time trying to find as nobody warned us it was under construction and the beautiful entrance, we googled before, was covered in building protection sheets... When we finally did find it, after like 10 min walking up and down that road, we entered the beautiful cafe with old vintage style mirrors, dim lights and loads of tables with happy people enjoying the delicious food. We felt like Pasta Bolognese and hot chocolate to get us active and full of energy for the adventure ahead of us! 
3 pm. 
There we were, holding hands and under one umbrella, one with camera (guess who?) and other with maps, guiding our way through the beautiful city, surrounded by winter-naked trees and under grey skies, but so in love with the moment. We´ve visited different sorts of stuff, from library to church, famous roads, little local shops and the final destination was the Crystal Palace with its beautiful gardens and amazing view over the city - basically everywhere your parents would take you but by our own will - and this is what i loved about it..
With the sun going down, we were getting colder and hungry which meant it was time to get home and find a place for our dinner! For now this is it and here you have the photo diary!s

Stay tuned for the outfit post of that day!:)

PORTO - Day 1 - Taylor´s

Hello there!
As you might've seen in my Instagram, if you follow ( @manyashaa) me of course, then you would've known that right now I'm typing this in a beautiful city of Porto in the north of Portugal! Some people asked me ´Hey? why are you in Porto?´ and it got me thinking.. There isn't a big explanation, as we - humans, many many centuries ago were always moving around.. the nature of human living was about travelling from one place to another in the search of food and place to stay..  They wouldn't stay in one place for long, nothing would hold them back but with development and simple discoveries they discovered how to build houses, make animals domestic animals and make families so this began to hold them back and our nature changed into more domestic humans lets say, where we have our houses and we don't travel as much. Some people managed to leave everything behind, the properties the jobs and take their  loved once and travel the world in a mini van - every typical tumblr girls dream (ahah).. So M and I decided to have our getaway weekend... Sadly only weekend as I'm guessing parents of 17years old teenaged wouldn't be happy with us leaving school and them behind, but yet, we get to spend 3 days in a place we've never been before and tun into Mini versions of Dora the Explorer and discover the city of Porto. So friday 16th the day I've been waiting for for 3 or something months, counting days on my phone app and literally surviving day after day - finally happened. Early morning we took the train and our romantic adventure began!
As we got to our cozy hostel the room wasn't ready so we took advantage to visit Taylor´s place! We found ourselves drinking port wine glass after glass and loose the notion , the feeling of our feet and head on our shoulders at around 3 o clock. Here you can see the pictures i took and aren't you just in love with their ceiling? yes! Its a ceiling so colourful no need for editing even! totally #NoFilter ahah

We took a little guided walk around their warehouse and learned some new things about the making of Port, the styles and the history!

We didn't notice the time passing but yet decided to walk by the river. Gladly the weather apps were wrong and there was no rain but grey skies which wasn't that bad actually..

 The views were staining, i couldn't stop taking photos but M was getting annoyed of my Blogger addiction so we decided to head to our hostel and find out what was behind the door with the name of our suite `Douro`- the name of the river! As the door opened so opened my mouth and eyes! Cozy bed, little veranda was just what we needed for 2 hour rest before the dinner!

As the sun went down and we got sober :) we headed our way to the centre of Porto city to have dinner at Burger Place - Bugo´s Burgers! Which by the way overcame our expectations! The burgers were tasy and delicious, the size is just perfect you eat it all, slowly drink strong Port and get happy heheh :) And this is what i got while we were waiting for taxi:

And now after the Photo Diary of Places enjoy photos of my happy face wearing: New Balance 300, Zara Jeans, Stadivarius Basic Loose Top, and Zara Duffle Coat with Huge Hood which made me look like an Eskimo! At least I was warm tho..

Later today Ill share with you more detailed photos of my outfit so stay tuned my lovelies and have fun wherever you are this weekend:)

Midi - Maxi - Fur

Hello There!
Finally on the 12th day after the New Year had started i had the time and possibility to take some pics and write you something! I've been thinking a lot about blogging lately and i thought what could make it more fun than its already is!? So i thought i need to find Sponsors which will push me to take photos and have deadlines, the real deadlines so i don't disappoint them and also add something to my wardrobe because, really, i got very tired of everything in there and no matter how much I'll try to sell it all i won't have enough money to buy everything i want.. Even if there are sales :) ahah so i figured it would be best stop spending money on one night dress, or one time use top and keep everything! Freeze my credit card in a huge square of Ice like it did the girl from the "confessions of a Shopaholic' movie and wait till theres a three or even four digital number! And when this miracle finally happens I'll go have a day off to shop shop and shop! With time my style changed and this week, reviewing my Wishlists and my list of links that i save of nice clothes i realized that this is not me at all, so i Deleted all of them and going to start the new Me Wishlists! yey!:)
For today, I've tried to wear something completely new and weird for me.. as Im not very tall - 1m70 and the midi dresses that are so in fashion now don't usually look good on me, making my legs shorter and i just don't feel comfortable.. but yet, i decided to give it a try! So here you can see me in Burgundy (obviously, my fav color!) and a fur vest (yes its huge I know.. I share it with mom cos all though it was given to me i never wear it!) and shoes.. well there was a problem cos i needed to make my legs a bit longer than they seemed so i thought these boots were quite nice and all though im Russian lately Ive been completely freezing outside and these shoes have holes so i needed to add something.. Here where the socks idea comes from! 
Im having mixed feelings about this outfit so i want your opinion! 

P.S. Im ready to tell you a secret! I was going to wait till the actual day but i just can't keep myself calm and stop my on-going and non-stopping exciting mode! M and I we are going to Porto this weekend! Its been a long time since we planned to have our gateway trip and now we finally have the time, place and money! so stay tuned for Photo Diary Every day (there are three days only but still) and outfits outfits outfits! My Dear will be the photographer - lets see how it goes :) hihi

well, enjoy <3

Winter 2015

Hello Hello my dears! Happy New Year to everyone!
Im sorry i haven´t said a word in literally, ages! Kind Santa gave me a camera for Xmas so im fully equipped to shoot my #OOTD and share them with you! I´ve missed this so much but family vacation - means no social network therefore it were the most painful and blog-craving weeks of my life, but i promise im back on track with new clothes, new camera and new me i guess? Isn't is the goal of every year to change yourself but by the end of the year realize you´re still the same height,weight and drama queen as you used to be! So no need or false goals and promises to yourself and your beloved body and lets aim at something achievable - for me for example, it will be do as many giveaways as possible, because i love you! Join and collaborate with shops and finally find a way to get money because my wish lists and buckets are getting 3 and even 4 digital! For now, my dear fashionistas, I´d like to share with you what this winter is going to be about? What should we were and shop this season, with help of my favourite magazine and dream work place - VOGUE.

1. Sweet Sixties

Who doesn't get inspired with those times of baby dolls Twiggy and Penelope Tree? Pastel colours, Mini-Skirts and trapeze dresses are going to be the New Black of the season! All though this time, lets steal the artsy side of ours from Spring/Summer 2014 runways and add some prints and shapes, updated with the modern twist for this season, to our wardrobe!

2. All over knits

Staying home in blankets and granny, ugly Christmas sweaters, isn't that the best feeling ever? Well now, we are allowed to go like this outside - No Judgy Zone! One of the most eye-catching and striking trends for this Winter is the comfortingly soft, full look in wool, as seen at Stella McCartneyMarc Jacobs and Céline. To keep it cozy lets make it natural, creamy colours will be the best choice!

3. XXL coats

`Daaaad? Can i borrow your coat?´ As the eternal classic, the ¾ length coat cut a longer length this season. And the beauty of the trend, is that you can use as well as heels, sporty trainers like Nike Roche and Air Max to bring the urban part of you and combine it with sexy classy we all love! 

4. Goldmine 

Gold took to the spotlight as it cascaded across the Fall/Winter 2014-2015 runways. Making audiences want to hit the dance floor, the gold rush trend was seen at Saint Laurent, Prada, Chloé and Moschino.

5. Night birds

"If you´re a bird, I´m a bird" Noah and Allies Dream come true this season! The couture touch of feathers graced ready-to-wear runways this season. Soft and light, the plumes added a touch of refined elegance to each silhouette, floating breezily down the runway, as light as the wings of a bird.

6. Fairytales

After the magic of Victoria´s Secret Show we immerse in the fascination of fairytales! From Little Red Riding Hood, to Snow White and the Queen of Hearts, Fall/Winter 2014-2015's collections were dreamy and imaginative. Delicate fabrics and precious embroidery were a homage to some of the most famous fairytales.

7. Tailoring

I was wondering, what can i do with all the jackets and jeans that M once forgot or lend me wear? Thank god, designers solved my problem! This winter, suits take on a masculine edge, as girls walked the runway in boyfriend-borrowed ensembles. Big, Edgy + smells like him? Im definitely wearing that this season!

8. Military khaki

Balmain Army of Lovers had blown my mind! Kim Kardashian And Kanye´s photos we literally as my desktop background! I really think this new era of sexy military outfits by Olivier Rousteing influenced a lot the trend of this season! Step in the line to hit the streets with looks from Fall/Winter 2014-2015. Khaki is the dominating color as well as Olives an Burgundies!

9. Optical monochrome

Black and white went graphic on the runway, as designers presented intricately geometric patterns, The prints of the season created hypnotic images and optical illusions. Catch their eyes and steal their attention with mind-blowing patterns of your clothes, this is what it is about!

10. Poncho

I remember i never really like Ponchos when i was little, it was impossible to play and kind of uncomfortable but when you grow you realize the beauty of it - the free movements! An iconic piece of folk style, the poncho was a key appeal on the Burberry collection of ponchos which you can personalize with Initials od your name! I just love personalised items but when you can make your coat with the two or three letters of your name this is just a must have for me!

11. Capes

On the same line with Ponchos - Capes are striking this season! Whether scarlet, embroidered with pearls or delicate designs, paired with a fur hood, or straight from Grimm's Fairy Tales, the cape is the outerwear piece of choice for Fall/Winter 2014.

Keep it stylish and trendy lovelies, see you soon with bunch of new posts and outfits!
