My new year resolution and short review to Moto Z Play Droid

2:49 PM
Hello, my dears! It's time to say bye to 2016. So sad to say it, because my year was quite tough, yet also quite amazing. We did a lot of traveling and lived in beautiful Monterey. My blogging journey was terrific, not just because I went to New York Fashion Week, but also because I reunited with my old friends that I originally met in Seoul. I earned money from my blogging career and worked with many big companies that I never thought I would ever work. I became a US citizen this year and got almost all my documents in order (passport, state ID, etc.)  I also had the awesome opportunity to be a part of Verizon's Influencer Program. Just before I came to Seattle for Christmas, I got a nice surprise from the team - they sent me a new smartphone. What an awesome surprise! I got a Moto Z Play Droid that came with a charger in the box. The first thing that I loved about this phone is the long lasting battery! The iPhone phones never lives long. Also my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge's battery didn't compare to one bit to the Moto Z Play Droid. If you are looking for a long lasting battery in a phone, the Moto Z is definitely for you! To be honest, I haven't had so much time to test this phone more, because December was extremely an busy month for me and my family. That being said, I did take few pics while we travelled and I did some live streaming on Instagram from my new phone. I liked that I'm able to use my favorite apps like Uber, Whatsapp, instagram, Skype, Telegram etc. It was super handy when all my other phones died.
Anyway, I'm really looking forward to 2017! My New Year's resolutions are to travel more, see more,  stay fit and healty, see my family in Kazakhstan, foster success in our small project that we started this year with my friend Jessica (In case, if you didn't have time to check it make sure to stop on our page www.dispurs.com !!! ), and finally to learn how to drive. Oh yeah, not so sure about that last one, but I will definitely try!

What is your New Year's resolution?

My trip to Miami: Art basel, Kyboe!

3:24 PM
Hi, guys! I finally have some extra time to sit, relax, edit photos and write a blog post. Today, I would love to share why I went to Miami Beach and why you need to experience Art Basel! If you have been a good follower of my Instagram, you probably have seen that I won a competition sponsored by KYBOE. The main prize for this competition was to fly to Miami Beach to enjoy this internationally famous art festival, and of course, to enjoy the party by Kyboe. You can't imagine how happy I was to be the winner because Art Basel has been on my bucket list. When we got to our lovely hotel, "Townhouse Hotel Miami," I got an awesome surprise from KYBOE. We got couple watches that were for my husband and I with an additional $200 for spending money. Also, we got to visit the Kyboe pop-up shop party and Art Basel. It was the best vacation I had this year. We ate a lot of yummy food, drank a lot of cocktails, enjoyed the fabulous art that inspired me for a whole year and naturally visited a few clubs. I really want to thank Kyboe for this awesome opportunity!



How to dress like a French girl

8:51 PM
Hello, guys! Before the Californian days get too cold, I would love to share how you can dress like a French girl just for fun inspiration. While living in Europe, I honestly never paid enough attention to how French girls dressed. Most of my friends didn't wear berets or eat croissants every day as we usually imagine. But for sure, they look simple and elegant.

It would be awesome to live in France and behave like a French lady, though, it's only a dream at this point for many of us.  To pull off this look, I wore my new striped sweater along with retro classy mini skirt that I got from Macy's. To accessorize my Frenchy style, I wore an adorable Macy's beret, Nicole Lee scarf and Public Desire boots. It might be not be festive enough for holiday season, but it can be an option in case you're not a fan of shiny dresses like me. Let me know what you think.

What to wear this holiday season with NY&Company #ad

12:44 PM
Hello my babies! Is everyone in the Christmas mood? To be honest, I have been extremely busy with travelling. If you watched my insta stories, I shared my travel to Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and Miami Beach, and it is still not over!  December is always a super busy month for my family and me.  I am quite happy that my family in Kazakhstan already got our Christmas package. Thank you to the US postal service for always delivering on time!

Anyway, in today’s post I wanted to share some style ideas for a Christmas Eve dinner, a New Year’s party, gathering with friends or even a holiday Fashion event.  Last year, I wore an entire Eva Mendes outfit that I got from NY&Company (check post here) and it inspired me to visit their store again and grab some dresses (check out the Holiday Dress Boutique).

This season we are all about lace. To keep my holiday elegant and stylish, I couldn’t resist buying this wonderful Veronica lace dress by Eva Mendes at NY&Company. And my second choice is the cold shoulder dress that you can get on sale right now.


What do you plan to wear this holiday season?

Holiday Gift idea for HER #ad

9:06 AM
Hello, my sweet readers! I’m writing to you from LAX airport on the way to Miami, Florida.  As I announced on my Instagram, this month have been hectic and super stressful for my family and I. That being said, I have been looking forward to our trip to Miami so I can finally relax!

Yesterday, we visited Santa Barbara on the way to Los Angeles and I was able to pick up my new watch at Macys. Even being super busy, I never stop working and trying to keep up with everything that needs to be done – especially Christmas gifts. Everyone is making wish lists and striving to find the perfect gifts for their families. You can feel in the air that Christmas is quickly coming!  

Today, we were able to visit two museums that were on my list of “MUST VISIT in California,” which included seeing the famous exhibition by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusuma. We went to the LACMA first though, and we decided to shoot my outfit there right away. I believe this place is one of the most beloved destinations of many fashionistas in LA.

If you are still looking for a wonderful GIFT FOR HER (mother, grandmother, best friend, girlfriend, wife), I’m here to advise you to check out the wonderful watch collection by Anne Klein that is sold exclusively at Macy’s (buy my watch here).  It will not just be a stylish and watch, but also a magnificent combination of two bracelets included in the package that would delight any woman.  They are super fun to accessorize with and cost only $150 (These great watch and bracelet sets, as well as other gift sets and all Anne Klein watches are 25% off from Dec 2 – Dec 8 using the promo code FRIEND on Macys.com.)  What do you think?
