Experiment Café 12

Hey, folks! One thing you should know about us is that we love exploring area and finding beautiful bakeries, cafés, restaurants, etc. Usually, there’s such a good energy in places like that and, yeah, we LOVE food. So from now on, we will share with you our favourite spots in Kiev. Are you ready? Hope you said “yes”! :)

Place: Experiment Café 12

Location: Mykhaylivs'kiy Lane 10/2 (about 10 minutes walking from the Independence Square, or Maidan Nezalezhnosti) 

This café is a part of Creative space 12. The place consists of cultural, educational and entertainment centre, design shop and a café that we are going to talk about. A cool thing about it is that every month throughout the year 12 talented Ukrainian designers are experimenting with the interior. In a short period of time they develop a new concept of the restaurant, a complete restyling happens – they change interior design, waiters’ clothes and the menu. This place is quite unique as you can tell. 

The atmosphere of the corner is amazing, wish we could stay there all day long.

Talking about food, we can’t really explain you how delicious it was. Just perfect. You should come. Seriously. x

Bright Simplicity

Hello, darlings! Today we want to share with you Stasia’s recent look. It is very simple because she wanted to make accent on one of her favorite vintage bags. Although she has found it on sale, the purse is really high quality and she likes it a lot. Once again, that proves that you don’t necessarily spend a lot of money on a good piece. x

Double "What's In My Bag"

Hey, folks! We really enjoy watching and reading about what other bloggers carry around in their bags, so today we decided to make that kind of a post. Since we are students, there isn’t a lot of cool stuff in our purses :D
But still, here we go!
                                                   
                                          Liza’s bagpack


1. Spanish exercise book.
We met after her classes, that’s why Liza got it with herself. Yeah, guys, we study Español.

2. Two notebooks, a pen.
Who are students? We are!

3. Hand & nails cream.
Can’t live without it.

4. Keys
Well, obviously, the one should have a keychain. Oh, and look how many cute breloques she’s got!

5. Flesh memory
Study, study, studyyyyyy.

6. Lipbalm
Can’t live without it numero dos.

7. Sunglasses
Can’t live without it numero tres. Seriously, there’s no chance you’re gonna meet us not wearing a pair of sunglasses.

8. IPod
Can’t live without it numero cuatro? :) Music, photos, Instagram, music, Instagram, photos. Well, you know.

                                            Stasia’s tote


1. English grammar workbook.
We love Spanish, but we should not forget about English, though.

2. Copybooks, a pen, a pencil, a highlighter.
Told you that we are boring students :)

3. Passport
Needed it in the post office today.

4. IPhone
This baby is always with Stasia. Literary.

5. Hand cream
It doesn’t matter how small her bag is, there’s always a room for hand moisturizer!

6. Lipstick.
Don’t know what it’s doing here, actually.

7. Sunglasses in the case
Look at Liza’s 7 :)

So basically, these are our essentials. We sincerely hope you didn’t die of boredom. Let us know what are your carry-on musts in the comments below! x

Cathédrales

Hello, loves! As promised, here are Stasia’s photos from the botanical garden we shot a couple days ago. In the background you can see domes of ancient St. Michael’s Vydubytskyi monastery. This is definitely a place you should visit if you are in Kiev. We hope you like our shoot and will travel to Kiev someday to see all the wonderful places and picturesque views of our city. x

In The Garden

We can’t express how much we love spring. It’s not too cold, it’s not too hot and everything is blooming. Ahh. For that reason, it was so pleasant to have a shoot in the botanical garden. We enjoyed it and hope you will like the result. x


P.S.: Stasia’s photos are coming up soon as well.

Must-see

These days there’s such a huge amount of information, photos, books, videos and films dedicated to fashion and its masters, so today we wanted to share with you a list of some films about this sphere we consider to be the ones that every fashion lover should watch.

                                   1. The September Issue.


To be honest, this is one of our favorite films related to fashion. We find it so exciting because while watching the film you really get to know a lot of things about creating the issue. There’s no doubt that Anna Wintour is one of the most powerful people in the industry so it is gripping to have a look on her work as well.

             2. Five Years. The Victoria Beckham Fashion Story.



These series of videos had to be in our list since both of us adore Victoria’s designs and her determination to what she does. Brand’s collaboration with Skype gives you unique opportunity to discover little yet significant details about creating a collection, fashion marketing, retail, etc. To find out more about the project visit http://collaboration.skype.com/victoria-beckham.

                                3. Bill Cunningham New York.


We love this wonderful motion picture about the legendary street fashion photographer. Cunningham says: “I don’t decide anything. I let the street speak to me, and in order for the street to speak to you, you’ve got to stay out there and see what it is.” He's definitely one of a kind so it's just a must-see.

                              4. Valentino: The Last Emperor.



The documentary that lets us see what’s behind the curtains of Valentino Garavani’s work is just a real masterpiece, we think. It is very inspiring, honest, funny, and, of course, it’s full of beauty. We truly believe that glory of this great couturier will never fade and he will always has his place in history of fashion.  

Surely there are more fashion-related films out there and maybe we will continue this list with our short reviews, but for now we’d love to know what your favourite one is. Leave the comments below and have a nice day! x

Vintage Girl

Hi to everyone out there! It’s not a secret that we love fashion. Since we are students, usually we can’t afford to buy designer clothes or accessories. Sure enough we would love to have all the things we want to but everything has its time. For now, we like to shop at vintage spots, fascinating markets with unique and interesting pieces. It can be really amusing and worthwhile. Most of things Stasia wore today are vintage or have no brand. We hope you’ll like the look and maybe get some inspiration. x

Blues

Hey, loves! Today’s post is inspired by the tendency of wearing blue shades. This outfit isn’t runaway-like but it’s suitable for an everyday life. Since Stasia loves blue, she enjoyed the look. We hope you like it too and find it useful. x

Urban Blooms

Hey, folks! The “protagonist” of today’s post are floral pants. Liza’s wardrobe is not full of different prints, she’s more about chic monotone colours. However, she loves these bottoms and admits that every time she wears them her mood switches for a better one. Tell us what peace of clothes/print/colour cheers you up when you put it on. Anyway, we hope you like how Liza styles the look. x

Beauty Favourites: April

Hello everybody! Hope you’re all enjoying spring sun and have some fun! Today you can discover a couple of beauty products both of us have been using recently. So here we go!










  
Stasia’s choice:

1. Yves Rocher, Gommage Gourmand Abricot (Apricot Fruity Scrub)
This facial exfoliator is incredible. It has a nice texture that is gentle to your skin. I’ve got dry and sensitive skin type and this gommage works perfectly for me. I like that it not only exfoliates, but also moisturizes my skin. The product smells amazing, so it’s always a pleasure to use it.

2. Gosh, Natural Touch Foundation
To be honest, I don’t usually wear and like foundations. But this one is so good that I’ve bought it second time. The texture is lightweight, soft, but still effective. It contains the organic sweet almond oil that hydrates and nourishes the skin, Vitamin A, E and has SPF 8. This foundation gives me a natural look and lasts all day.

3. Avalon Organics, Vitamin C Renewal, Rejuvenating Oil-Free Moisturizer
I’m madly in love with this cream! No jokes. Usually, it’s quiet hard to moisturize my skin, make it feel great and look radiant at the same time. This thing can do it, for sure. I use it every night and apply on a clean face. At the begging the cream seems a bit hard on skin, like a mask. Don’t worry about it, when the product absorbs into your skin you will love it.
This ointment is 70% organic, so that makes it even better. Oh, and it smells wonderful, like oranges! I suggest this cream to ones who want to deeply hydrate their skin, ensure it is fresh and renewed.
Liza’s choice:

4. Tea Tree Oil
I think it’s a must-have. This oil is all-natural and you can find it in your local pharmacy or drugstore. It will be your savior if you have a blemish, skin cut, sun burn, etc. I use it as a natural spot cure, because the oil has antiseptic and antimicrobial activity. If I have a break-out, I apply a bit of tea tree oil on it, on a previously washed face before bed. As a result, I wake up with spotless skin. I really recommend it to you, guys.
5. Maybelline, Dream Fresh BB vs L'Oréal, Nude Magique CC Cream
As Stasia, I don’t wear foundation on a daily basis, so BB and CC creams are my alternatives. I prefer Maybelline’s BB to L'Oréal’s CC cream. First one is really light textured, you don’t feel it on your face. BB suits my skin tone perfectly, giving me a natural finish. The only thing I don’t really like about this product is it’s smell. It’s just a bit weird.
On the contrary, L'Oréal’s CC cream has a more thick texture than Maybelline’s BB. It doesn’t look natural enough on the skin and has a yellowish tint. Anyway, I’m still looking for a perfect BB or CC cream (preferably on a budget). If you know one, leave the comment below!
To sum up, we would like to tell that all of these products are goodish, but the key to health and beauty is your lifestyle. Try to eat clean, drink at least 2 liters of water every day, and have enough sleep. Don’t forget to remove your make-up before bed and be as positive and happy as you can possibly be.
Lots of love,
S and L x
