Lost muse [ENG/RUS]

Inspiration is transient
24/7 access to muse
Immediate change of images
Lack of interest
We are full of creative stimuli 

When was the last time you visited the museum and were standing in front of the picture for more than a few minutes? But longer just because it made you travel in time and place. I decided to go to the museum as a part of the experiment. I visited an exhibition which I know quite well on a Saturday evening just in order to observe other visitors. But I noticed that they were flying from one picture to another. And I'm not only about museums. 

For example, as a representative of "Instagram feed" generation, I can notice the same on the internet. We scroll through the feed and don't pay adequate attention. Of course, there is a lot of trash everywhere, but it is our right to choose what we like and enjoy it.

I'm afraid that very soon we will lose a taste for inspiration. So you need to surround yourself with pleasant things that make us feel better. "will I be cool if?.."- completely wrong thoughts. Just do what you feel and you will be the coolest version of yourself. Isn't it enough? Because confidence is always a luxury that will draw people's eyes 

And below you can find one of my looks for holiday season. What could be better than a comfy, festive and cute sweater for Christmas? So I have chosen this one from h&m. Simple but fancy, it is also a good base for different looks.

Everyone is an influencer

„What strikes me is the fact that in our society, art has become something which is related only to objects and not to individuals, or to life. That art is something which is specialized or which is done by experts who are artists. But couldn't everyone's life become a work of art? Why should the lamp or the house be an art object, but not our life?“- Michael Foucault 

I often hear from influencers in the blogosphere: “People want not just an inspiration, they want an entrance to a fantasy world!“ Usual things tend to be ameliorated. But in fact, I want to show you from my posts this usual life the way it is, how to find beauty even in everyday routine without being sly to yourself. Because in fact all of us should at first represent ourselves the way we are without additional clinquant around. Beauty is in the details. I don’t put a lot of effort into my hobbies (my blog is absolutely only my hobby), but I really want to show that everyone deserves his/her own fantasy world.

We need to understand that fantasy, fairy tales are not a part of everyone’s life. In fact, nobody has such even when it seems different. And I believe that it is absolutely phoney to make it seem like a fairytale for the public. Just be true to yourself. 

As for me, I couldn’t be happier that this „fashion blog“ era reached its peak. These engagements between people and fashion are what I always wanted. Especially, when I started as a teenager who at that time wanted just to express myself, to get some confidence and to display my small talents. But at the same time, it makes me a little upset to see only good pictures without the story beyond and a bit of self-identity. Bloggers started to lose their core, everything becomes marketed („BUY!...SELL!...BUY!!!). And that is the reason why I always repeat my own mantra: „Try not to lose your own way even under the „influence of influencers“.

Lots of love
