Priviet (Hello)! As you may have noticed, I share every now and then a little bit about myself on my outfit posts as this won’t be an exception… this gorgeous top with a matrioshkas print I got from Hello Blogshop just reminded me of sharing a little random fact about me this time… I have a lot of friends from East Europe. I have quite a lot of friends from there so my sister usually says all my friends hail from East Europe – which is not true at all – but I suppose I do know a certain number of Ukrainians, Russians, Czechs, Moldovans, Romanians, Poles (and others) above the average. This being said, I hear Russian I’d say pretty much everyday. A Ukrainian guy I know often would ask me how the hell haven’t I learned Russian yet (well, because it is too hard! One of my best friends, who’s from Moldova, even tried to teach me a bit but we both gave up haha). Still, I got a bit used to how it sounds and I’m able to get little sayings such as Priviet (Hello), Kak dela? (How are you?), Spaseeba (Thank you), Paka (Goodbye). I easily remember Dobriy den (Good afternoon) and Dobriy vecher (Good evening) but I take sometime to remember Dobraye utro (Good morning) because the first two are just like in Czech unlike the third one.
Of course when I saw this matrioshkas top it immediatly reminded me of my east friends, I can’t wait to wear it to college and show off how pretty this top is!
By the way, do you know what else I can say in Russian? Menya zavut Ester (My name is Ester)! Which, despite the language you talk, is what you’ll understand if you get to see me wearing this beautiful necklace! I just got it from My Name Necklace, a shop that sells custom name necklaces! I remember when I went to Czech Republic back in 2010, I went to a street market in Prague and there was a vendor selling a sort of wire made necklaces with names. I felt very tempted back then to get one for myself but I didn’t (and I can’t even remember why) and I deeply regreted it. Now I have my own name necklace and I’m in love with it! It’s quite simple and discrete so I can wear it with pretty much any outfit, I love it!
