A few days ago I got nominated for the Liebster Blog Award by the lovely Mariel from sillystyle. The owner of the awarded blog is expected to answer some questions, share random facts about themselves, nominate other bloggers and create a new list of questions for them to answer.

I think this is a great way to get to know each other better and to discover other great blogs!

But first come the 11 questions Mariel from sillystyle asked me.

  1. Why did you start your blog?
    I have another blog in Russian where I write about my life and projects. The blog pictures are hosted on where I have a few followers. One day one of them, a lovely girl, asked me where she could see the projects I uploaded pictures for. That’s how I decided to start a blog in English.

    Everywhere: on the streets, on Instagram, in fashion blogs. But not in magazines,  I do not read magazines.
