don't slip.

oh snow.
what a love / hate relationship.
good= snowboarding. brisk winter walks. the first snowfall. witnessing the intricate details of a single snowflake.
bad= -40. starting the car 10 minutes before you go anywhere. scraping ice off the car!
i have been living in this green coat 24/7... so much so that my brother actually calls it the "24/7".
i picked it up at h&m in the little boys section!
i wanted a tough. military-esq coat to contrast my sky-scrapers & feminine self.
it works perfectly.
today is also ukrainian christmas.
Христос народився! ( "christ is born" )
we celebrated the eve of this precious holiday yesterday which is accompanied by 12 meatless dishes. all served in sequence. so pretty much 12 courses.
i have been celebrating 2 christmases and 2 new years since birth, so i feel super lucky to have such celebrations.
i am still here for another month so heaps more snow to come!

I love these latest pictures. It was interesting to read why you love and hate the winter. It's so different than what I'm accustomed. Even living in Brazil I already saw snow, but it never covered the entire floor. And I don't know how is less than -5°C.

Ah snow! I would love some cold weather right now, it's a great excuse to wear cute coats like yours!

Just stumbled across your blog - I love that you left a social work degree for fashion. I'm 24 too and about to ditch a career in law to study fashion design...Eek! xx

Mila said...

Hi sweet gorgeous of mine!
Although i can't see the first picture, you look amazing as always my dear friend!
Usually i am not into shoes like those, but you fit them so perfectly and your whole style is just perfect for them!
Here in Holland it's also freezing, but -40! That's not human anymore.! ;)

Thinking about you always,

sending you all my love and warmth,

Ben istanbuldan selda 22 yaşında konfeksiyon içşisiyim Amatör Porno sizleri bekletmeden hemen hikayeme geçiyorum.. Biz 5 katlı bir binanın en üst katında yaşıyorduk ve bir öğlen paydosunda sevgilim beni Anal Sikiş aradı evdeydim çünkü evle iş yerim arasında 2 dakika bile yoktu.. Bende Asyalı Porno sevgilime benden telefon beklemesini söyledikten sonra evin durumuna baktım evde kardeşlerim ve annemin Esmer Porno birkaçtane arkadaşı vardı bu iş imkansızdı tekrardan düşündüm ve çatı katı aklıma geldi sevgilime telefon açıp çatıya çıkmasını ve Fantazi Porno beni beklemesini söyledikten sonra telefonu bir süre elime almadım anneme işe gidiyorum dedikten sonra Gay Porno hemen üst kata çatıya çıkıp sevgilimin
dudaklarına yumuldum az bir süremiz Götten Sikiş vardı ve çok istiyordum onu hemen önünde diz çöküp sikini çıkardım kocaman olmuştu bile... Özlemişti beni HD Porno bitanem başladım sikini yalamaya kafasını öpüyor onu çıldırtıyordum sevgilim saçlarımdan tutmuş ağzımı keyifle sikerken çatı katının kapısı açıldı toparlanamadan Lezbiyen Porno komşunun şişman oğlu efecan gelmişti ben dizlerimin üzerinde sevgilimin Liseli Porno siki ağzımda yakalanmıştım hemen bu halimizi gören komşu oğlu Sarışın Sikiş kaçarcasına gitti.. Sevgilim bir süre güldükten Türbanlı Porno sonra bu şişko neden kaçtı korktu herhalde onu sikicem sandı galiba dedikten sonra bir kahkaha daha attı ben sevgilimin Türk Porno sikine deli gibi saldırıyor yalıyor emiyordum boşalmasını istiyor Zenci Porno sütünü içmek istiyordum sevgilim ağzımı sike sike boşaldı hepsini yuttum bir damlasını ziyan Porno etmedim ve sevgilimle vedalaşıp ayrıldık... Ben her defasında sikiş yapmadan önce yazporno diye olan türkçe siteden Porno izle bölümüne girip seyrediyorum azdıktan sonra şahane sikiş ile gözleri kamaştırıyorum.
