Do you draw inspiration from the start of each new year? I'm really feeling the 𝘯𝘦𝘸 in this new year. A blank canvas - a refresh and the possibilities for the coming year feel endless. ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
January feels like putting your best foot forward and screwing your head on right. -- ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I encounter negativity I always think this: There's no point putting pressure onto each every day, instead, I find there is more power in appreciating how every action, decision, and moment & realisation fits into your big picture. I find I grow more grateful (and therefore am just more optimistic in general) for how far I've come this way and enjoy my path more, even when not every day is "gratifying". 💛⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Gratification is never instant babes. Work for it - keep your heart & mind fresh. 💛⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don’t be fooled, needing to fart and teething have turned him into the devil himself and I haven’t slept in 3 days because of it. But instead of saying he’s very demanding, I’m trying to be more optimistic so.... he has strong leadership skills.

Говорят, что скоро видео в инстаграм (в основной ленте) станут больше минуты. Думаю, что все возможно.
Поэтому приложения с фильтрами точно пригодятся.
Я обычно пользуюсь первыми тремя.
I‘m 25 today which means I’m closer to 30 than to 20 so I might as well just be dead

I pretty much only wear one outfit lately.

The view out of the window this morning ❄️❄️❄️
I have a poorly small person at home again so have decided to take a couple of days out of working to ensure we both have some downtime & boot this lurgy up the bum before it takes hold of everyone in that family sharing kind of way 🤒🤒🤧 (how come they never share their chocolate quite so enthusiastically...😉)

Modern kid, tablet in one hand, food in the other and dressed like a boss 🤩
💽 Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song ~ and here's me looking pretentious putting on a classical number... Morning sight of snow has been reported so *cue winter wonderland photos from influencers* ☃️
Off to Paris today. So here’s some cheese and baguette to get in the mood 🇫🇷

When it’s dark and gloomy: light candles! Does anyone else find watching flickering candlelight mesmerising and a just a bit meditative? There are some other ideas about how to embrace winter up on the blog (link in profile). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
#candidslumber at its best. ♥️ So lucky this little one loves taking long naps outside. Fun fact: that sweater that’s just peaking out and that he also wears in a couple of other pictures was mine as a baby and possibly (my dad doesn’t quite remember) knit by my paternal grandma whom, sadly, I never got to meet. #oureverydaymoments
A few months ago, we had an inspiring time in Jávea, Spain. 🌞 A change of scenery boosts creativity and spirit. ✨ We're looking forward to our next trip to France! Watch out... Parisian updates coming soon. 😉

We’re hitting IKEA today and I can’t wait 😊 we’re going to pick frames for our wedding photos but I can guarantee you I’ll come back with a couple of candles 🤭 and let’s not forget a cheeky hotdog!
20 years being in some sort of business this year.
Or 30 if you include my little venture selling crafts door to door as a 10 year old 😆.
20 years of epic failures and epic triumphs.
20 years of figuring out stuff as I go, highs and lows, challenges and wins.
Loads of lessons, lots of letting go, and also, holding on.
One thing’s for sure.
It’s okay to not have it all worked out.
Just get out there and do it. Start living your dream “job” and it might just become a reality.
Sometimes this whole “business” business is totally winging it. Basically getting things done matters more than planning on getting things done. I’m a serial planner. Sometimes that’s my downfall. You can’t make money until you put yourself and your offerings out there – what good is it if you have a whole lot of product or services to offer the world, but nobody knows about them? They’re just sitting pretty in your mind or in your basement. Just put yourself and your stuff out there, and when the things need to be done, you’ll figure out how to do it if you don’t know how.
I started my first business by accident because someone wanted my product that they’d seen on the news. I was forced to work it out. And I built a flourishing, successful business from those rugged beginnings when I didn’t have a clue (but I had a great product!)
One other thing’s for sure.
Done is better than perfect.
Progress over perfection wins hands down.
PS - How about these photos that I just got back from the printers though?! You still can’t beat print, IMO. So good to hold my work in my hands.

today I turn a little bit older, perhaps a tiny bit wiser, but above all I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, due to the wonderful people I’m lucky enough to have in my life and that is all I’ll ever need #birthday 🎈
Cooper is 17 months old today 🖤 He’ll be spending it with his buddies at nursery, whilst I am at work. I’m sure we can have a mini celebration this evening though 🎉

I’ve been loving learning how to create art digitally. But sometimes I just need to give it a break and make something with my hands. Even if it’s just a quick pebble doodle.
5 years together today ♥️ Thank you for understanding me even when you don’t. Lol
... and for those asking/saying it’s time for a wedding;
we think we’ll give it another 7 years ✌🏽 #couplegoals#bosscouple
Никогда ещё возвращение в рабочий ритм после праздников не давалось мне с таким трудом. Наверное потому что я на них раньше толком и не отдыхала 😅 ⠀ Тут позволила себе расслабиться, а собраться обратно не получается. Тяжело рано вставать, продуктивность куда ниже, собраться с мыслями так вообще целая история. А особенно колеблющееся вечно настроение не даёт спокойно жить, но сегодня точно (!) сяду за план по прекращению этого безобразия. И поделюсь им в сторис потом 👌
⠀ Есть ещё такие же как я или у всех уже активное начало новой жизни и воплощение новых планов в неё?) Рассказывайте 😉
⠀ И если у вас есть явки и пароли волшебного пенделя, то жду в комментарии ☺️
Вчера по дороге в аэропорт нашла идеальный, на мой взгляд, зимний лес. И сразу в голове родились идеи для фото. Ведь Новый год уже прошёл, а зимы ещё полтора месяца.
Я лично люблю сезонные фотографии в профилях у людей. Но очень не люблю такие переходные моменты, когда не за что зацепиться. Поймала себя на мысли, что уже даже 14 февраля жду, лишь бы тематика была какая-то.
Это была наша с @makarova.ksenyaa прогулка по холодным ветреным окрестностям патриарших.

I've seen quite a few people taking part in #10yearchallenge and everyone looks much better now so far. Can't tell the same about myself but yesterday I decided to have a sneak peak into my old blog because it's the only place I can find old photos of myself. I haven't done that for ages but it was interesting to go back in time. So what have had changed? I had less tattoos, I used to dye my hair black although my hair style haven't changed :) I still have fringe and cut my hair short occasionally :) I used to wear only vintage/vintage inspired clothes and I was skinny. I used to buy all my clothes in second hand or thrift stores. Well, at least that haven't changed much :) You still would be able to find most of my vintage dresses in my wardrobe even though I'm not sure what's the point of keeping them as I don't think I'll ever will be able to fit in them but I just can't get rid of them...
This photo was taken by my friend @vita.zekaite. She documented our life during all these years. She took a photos in our wedding, she did my maternity shoots and took photos of my postpartum life. She was the only one that took my nude photos. I posed for her so many times and she made the best photos of me. Even though I always was self conscious so definitely not the best model to work with :)))

The upside of dragging oneself out of bed for a morning walk up the hill to lime corner and beyond, is the opportunity to catch up with some favourite podcasts, and a guilt free treat or two later in the day. 🙄 Truthfully, it has been (until today) so wet here this week that I’ve skipped the walk and just gone straight for the podcast and the sweet treat, my rationale being that you only live once and after all, it is Summer Plum Cake time. I’ve popped the link to the recipe in my profile. And if you have any new podcast recommendations for me please let me know. I have the feeling I might need to walk off a few more slices of cake and I might need some new favourites!
