I was so excited to see my family and friends in Minsk! In this post I decided to share with you guys photos of all the fun things that I noticed during my trip.
#1: A crêpe with my name on it that I tried at the supermarket. The name was made of chocolate. Yummy!
#2: The most misogyny sauna hat you could imagine. In translation from Russian, “I’m a great cook. I don’t talk too much. I never have a headache.”
#3: Facial with Lyudmila that I know since I was a teenager. I felt like a brand new after that procedure!
#4: Door sign at the Chekhov Сafé saying, “Pull. Affectionately.”
#5: My sister’s inspiration board.
#6: My #TBT photo with a long bob. Believe it or not, that photo was taken when I was at the first grade.
#7: This sign says “Technical Break.” Seems like a sales representative had too much fun on a Friday night.
#8: Breakfast with RG agency where I talked about #StyleSprinter blog and my life in New York.
#9: The best cheesecake I’ve ever tried outside of the U.S.
#10: Interview with the Women’s Magazine and a meeting with an amazing Editor-in-Chief Maria Stolyarova.
#11: Desquacrem Deep Pore Cleanser by Sothys Paris that helped me to get rid of acne when I was a teenager. I’ll always be thankful for that!
#12: My dog Lilu as a hairstyle model at the pet groomers master-class.
#13: Canned fish. Traditional New Years Eve dish in the USSR.
#14: Fancy coffee cups with the images of Moscow and Pisa.
#15: Advertising of the door supplies saloon saying, “With our services, you can pass through walls.” Russian humor is very straight-to-the-point but I still love it.
#16: Real tea (not tea bags!) that smells so delicious.
#17: “The most needed book ever.”
#18: Contact lenses vending machine.
#19: Zen recycling area.
#20: A book about quilling. Surprisingly, I’ve never heard about it in the U.S.
+ 21: You can buy a hedgehog.
+22: Espresso café a-la Russe.
+23: Cross booking shelf where everyone can borrow a book for free. Belarus is a reading nation and I truly appreciate it!
+24: Belarusian pantyhose. The best pantyhose on the planet earth!
+25: Snow! While New York was fighting a fake blizzard while the weather in Minsk was perfect and not too cold.
