January 25th, 2014 by Tatiana
January 25th is a special day for me because it’s Tatiana’s Day in Russia, which is also known as Students Day.

Russia’s first minister of education, Ivan Shuvalov asked Empress Elizabeth to create a university. [ ... ]

A l’Ombre

October 8th, 2013 by Tatiana
Mylène Farmer has always been my favourite French chanteuse. She is edgy yet romantic, she is a mix of devil and angel, which reminds me of myself;) Her angelic voice mixed with “dark” lyrics truly hypnotizes me. Tonight I have been hypnotized by the song called “A l’ombre” and I have been singing it all evening. I wonder why…. [ ... ]

I know I haven’t done anything on here for a very long time and I have so much to write about.

Or maybe it’s just an excuse for me being undisciplined… As soon as I am back from China, I have huge plans for many posts on here. After being in Shanghai, I am finally in Beijing and have a very exciting weeks ahead [ ... ]

Think Pink

March 17th, 2013 by Tatiana

I have done a lot of travelling recently and I can’t help but notice how much I use my Iphone on my trips.

Before booking the actual trip, I look for hotels [ ... ]

A Flower A Day

January 12th, 2013 by Tatiana
It wouldn’t be me if I didn’t give myself tasks and set myself a challenge. As I always have my Iphone with me and my eyes always scan for photo opportunities, I came up with an idea to create a little photo project on every trip I take. On my recent trip to Gambia I set myself a task to photograph a different flower I see every day. I must admit it was not very easy and the choice of flowers was rather limited. [ ... ]
