MY ''SNOWY'' FAVOURITES

 Hello guys! It was pretty a long time since I wrote my previous. It's kind because holidays are over, and started all this everyday routine, so I had less of inspiration and not much changed since the last year yet, so it's still a little hard to blog.
Anyway, I'm here, cause I did all the things I needed to do (or almost), I have the Internet (have problems with the Internet recent few years) and my laptop finally works good recently and the main thing is that I have a good mood. I'm excited about tommorow's birthday in my family and we have snow like two or three days so that made streets look not that grey and sad.

By the way, I wanted to talk about about my new things that I started to like it when became cold. Let's start with clothes.

Actually it's not that useful for you cause I don't know the brand, but I couldn't a list of my favourites without it.
In the last days of November I with my sister went to go winter shopping. I needed a snowjacket, but it was hard to find, cause everything was either too expensive and with real fur, either I didn't like it. I wanted something bright, not like a simple black jacket. And I almost gave up and just found something holographic in a packet. I really like the colour but thought it's a jacket for kids, but my sister said we should check this out and turned out it was that kind of jackets I was searching of. As it was the last jacket like this it costed almost free. Around four dollars. It was a very lucky purchase.
SHOES.
 And also that I bought winter boots that look like rabbits. I thought it's so cute! But I have a problems with threm - dogs really don't like them. They think my shoes are actually kittets or something like that, I don't know. It's weird!
Favourite music. Recently I'm into J-pop. I started to listen to it, cause anime and doramas. It's seem like Japanese music is mostly really good.
What's about doramas. I just finished the first one this year (it has only eleven episodes) and it's called ''Summer nude''. Actually it's mean like nude of souls and hearts, there is nothing naughty in this dorama.
I started to watch it, cause YamaPi acts only in interesting ones and wanted to watch something about summer, as was tired of everything Christmassy. And now after watching this I want summer, it has such a great vibe of summertime and, especially, of summer nights. Miss it.
Don't judge by first episode, cause it gets better with every next one.
Also I want to recommend two Youtube channels. They were only channels which Vlogmases I was watching. These Youtubers are friends, so I thought to tell about them together. ''Sharmander'' and ''Taylor R''.
Movie. I loved ''Beauty and the beast''. I've never seen a cartoon or never read this fairytale, so it was interesting for me.
Apps. Games I recently play and recommend - ''Potion Punch'', ''Ramen master'' (was inspired by doramas too haha) and ''Everytown sweet''.
Drink. I really like ''Oshee vitamin'' juice. Amazing not very sweet taste.

How I celebrate Christmas in Ukraine | BLOGMAS 6&7






Hello, guys! It's the last post of my little blogmas. Hope you had fun with me the first week of the year and I added you a little more of Christmas spirit. 
So yeah, Ukrainian Christmas was yesterday and I actually almost slept all day and even was alone, as everybody else went to relatives to celebrate and, unfortunately, my gum very swelled and hurted, so Christmas went not as planned. But it's okay, as Christmas eve was great and on Christmas I still had a lot of food (that was hurt to eat, so after breakfast I decided not to eat all day:D), I rested from everyone , watch an interesting travel show and slept most of the time, because if you have a lot of sleep, almost eveything stops hurting. Believe me, I slept two days and feel great. 😄

Actually the real reason why I am doing this post is to write a little about how people in Ukraine celebrate Christmas. Tell me if in your country people doing something similar. I think it's interesting!


First, our Christmas eve starts from moment you can see a first star in the sky, so when it's in the sky you can finally eat festive food. All hungry people and kids love to search for the first star. I was doing it, when was younger.
On the table should be at least 12 meals or more, they represent Jesus's 12 disciples. The main one is kutia. You should try at least 3 spoons of it before you eat other food. It's usually made from wheat, honey, halva e.t.c.
Since Christmas kids and people from church love to sing carols, you should give them a little bit of money for this. Just like on Halloween but money instead of candy. But you can give sweets too. By the way, one of the most carols ''Carol of the bells'' is originally Ukrainian carol and called ''Schedrik'' and have absolutely different lyrics. I like both, but Ukrainian one is more unusual to me.
Boys since New Year day can ''sow'' seeds houses, but girls only can since Christmas.
Also predictions is big part of Christmas for young girls who love mystery. We have many ways to predict future these days, but the most scary one when an unmarried girl should sit alone darkness with a mirror and a candle and look in that mirror before she will see a spirit in the mirror that will be look the same as her future husband. After you see him you should say something like ''fuck you'', so spirit will escape and won't hurt you.
By the way, we tried to predict our future with my niece and signs said that somebody gonna propose me in spring or autumn, while my niece will meet her love this year but should wait many years before her wedding haha. Also it's said I'll move out. So that's it! ⛄

MAGIC PLACE AND LITTLE FAILURES | BLOGMAS 4&5

 Hello, guys! It's Christmas eve here today, so I acvtually don't have much of time to wrote a lot of text like the last times, but want to share with you a lot of photos I took in the center of my city. I really liked decorations when I was the first time, but I saw everything in daylight, so I wanted to visit this place again to see in the evening. Camera doesn't show the vibe on 100%, but it looked like a fairytale.
I had fun, despate, I had little failures during the whole day. Like all times when I needed to cross the road light was turning red for 40 seconds and it happend to me more than 5 times that evening. And after the long walk I was so tired and happy that I already on the bus on my way home, but a driver didn't say that he's not going to my street anymore and I even was even more far away from house on another side of the city. Plus, I had very awkward moment in bakery when I thought about something and a salelady asked me what I'm going to buy and I said ''ball'' instead of ''bread''. It was very weird and awkward...

Blue and yellow as flag of Ukraine.

I found there beautiful tiny notebooks, you can use as Christmas tree toys. I thought it's super cute, so I get two for me and my niece. She in love with glittery notebook with stars.
And there were different cool teas with good prices. Way cheaper than at stores. There are rose petals, daisies and other flowers.
Also I tried this natural juice, that's very good and tasty, while I've never eaten a worse doughnut.
