Trip to Philly

Last weekend was another weekend in Philadelphia. More and more this city opens up to me as a more interesting and beautiful place. I was never a big fan of Philly when I lived there; however, lately every time I go back, I find it more and more appealing. It is much calmer and smaller than New York, but it definitely has its own character, its own uniqueness.

Prospect Park

Last weekend, my friend and I went to explore Prospect Park in Brooklyn. I had been to park a few times before but I always walked through the same familiar area. This time we branched out and decided to just wander around without any clear direction. And boy, was I surprised! There is so much going on in this park; there is a carousel, a boat house, a skating rink, live music everywhere... Anything you can think of, they've got it!

Fun Outfit

Just another fun outfit I wore to a friend's birthday party at a Russian restaurant. Recently I started making changes to the stereotypical "you have to wear a dress to a birthday party" beliefs. In fact, my promise to wear dresses (simple casual ones) more in my daily life is also working out quite well - I started wearing dresses to work more often; but when it comes to gong out, it's nice to spice things up and try something fun.

Happy 9 Years in the U.S.!

The rest of Saturday, July 25th was spent celebrating our 9 year anniversary of having lived in the United States. It was a firm decision made by our family to continue the tradition and celebrate this event every year. As we sat down to enjoy our pre-course consisting of oysters and champagne, the phone rang and my aunt Raisa advised us that they were planning to come over since we have not seen each other way too long.

Since we still had some time before they made it to our house, I decided to have an impromptu photo session with my stepdad, an aspiring photographer. The results you can see below:
