Winter Weekend Wear

Winter Weekend Wear, 7 more minutes, fashion blog, Alyona Prykhodko Getting Ready Time: 21 minutes

You see, the problem with going to a distant magical land of a permanent summer (I promise to do a post on Thailand as soon as I go through all the 1,219,047,537,583 photos I took there) is that eventually you have to come back. And when you do come back, you have to face two more month (if we are lucky and we get spring on time this year) of dreadful weather. No wonder so many people including myself start to feel a little... blue.
However, after a week of being

Beijing or How to survive without Instagram for 4 days


Time: 4 days, but 2 days would of been enough (at least during winter season).

To see the Great Wall of China... I dreamt about it since I was a little girl. Or not so little. I don't remember how old I was when Mulan came out.

So, naturally when we had a choice to stop in Beijing for a couple of days on our way to Tailand we jumped at the chance. I always saw myself in a blue dress, my hair dancing in the wind, posing at the very top of the wall, the mountains behind me... The

Getting Ready With a Cold

Алена Приходько, Alyona Prykhodko, 7 more minutes, fashion blog, Getting Ready With a Cold

Getting Ready Time: 57 minutes (most of which I spent on trying to cover the redness of my nose.)

It's a wonderful day: the birds are singing, the sun is shinning and I hate everything and everyone. Not only I am running a fever and stuck at home, but on top of this it had to happen during my favourite time of the year.

I had such plans! Under different circumstances I would be sharing my ‘Christmas Party look’- all happy smiles under my beautiful tree. But it is very hard to look happy when your face is swollen

Getting Ready Time: 1 hour, 2 minutes.

Omg. Sunshine! Can you believe it?!

After weeks and weeks of misery we finally managed to hustle up some sun rays (quite frankly hell must have froze over). And of course everyone immediately started to strip down (who cares that it's only 6°C?! ...hey, as long as there is sunshine...). And although I had to put on about 3,141,592,653,589 layers to protect myself from hypothermia (thermal underwear anyone?), sometimes it's just nice not to have to wear a heavy coat. Especially since I recently decided to upgrade my

How our event ended up in Vogue

Sybarite Jewellery, London, Sybarite, Event, Kensington Palace

Time to prepare the event: 3 months, 2 days and about 1,000,000 dead brain cells.

As you know aside from blogging I also hold a position of a managing director at Sybarite (oh so, very busy and important). And you see, recently I discovered a big difference between holding a jewellry event and going to one... The thought of what I was going to wear never really registered. Not once. Moreover, the fact that I DO NOT HAVE A DRESS hit me in a middle of the night a day before…

It took us three month to prepare
