I am always looking for new blogs to read and follow. Last week I came across Katie’s thrift haul from http://myclosetnbeautyfinds.wordpress.com! And I immediately wanted to feature on of her finds on my blog, and it was, obviously, a dress!

 Katie is a 22 year old college student who loves drugstore makeup, and about 3 months ago she discovered the beauty of thrifting and can’t get enough of it! On her blog she mainly does beauty reviews and thrift hauls, and sometimes just ramble about whatever is on her mind, don’t we all?

She bought this dress from a local consignment shop. But she also told me that she rarely wears dresses. Though I personally think they look great on her!
Katie is a perfect example of a girl who wears dresses only on special occasions, she is more of a jeans and a T kind of girl on a day to day basis, but she, herself said she’d love to get out of her comfort zone and wear more dresses! I hope this project inspires her and a lot of other girls out there to wear more skirts and dresses!
Have a great day everyone and don’t forget to stop by Katie’s blog!

{27 DRESSES} Dress 1: It’s my Birthday

Have you seen that Birthday episode of How I met your Mother, where Lilly goes –

IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!!!

?

And I am actually excited to be 27! But 26 has been really good to me! I like my job, I love blogging, I really feel like BeingZhenya.com has actually gotten somewhere over the past year, and it’s only going to continue developing and being there for you, to hopefully inspire and encourage you! We got a house, I mean who would’ve thought that a small town girl from Russia would actually be living far far away from home and doing what she loves!

I do get an occasional hater who comments and says – Zhenya, you moved all the way from Russia, now work at a day care, shop at thrift stores, your life sucks. And even though those comments get deleted, I just want to tell you, that life is what you make out of it, and I feel like my life is just beginning now, and it’s wonderful. I hope you all have a wonderful day today, and a wonderful life. And now a few shots from my Birthday that we celebrated with my family yesterday!

Enjoy,

Xo,
