The 23 Paradox

ENG: I'm 23 now. Another year has passed, and I haven't understood yet, if it brought more losses of profits. I didn't fly to Milan Fashion Week as was planned. Didn't attend Dolce & Gabbana show as was thought. The fresh European visa in my foreign passport is left unmarked. The most unexpected were congratulations from the most unexpected people, but the most expected forgot about my Birthday. Also there were persons, whose congratulations could have been the best present for me. But they also forgot. Observing Moscow weather which was fully in accordance to my mood in the window, I unenthusiastically got ready for the ball. Instead of the planned show, I was to spend a couple of hours on a loud party with a half-empty glass, because my friends ordered so. They were evidently against my lonely staying at home, but by midnight alcohol made them forget with whom they came and who was to congratulate. I'm 23 now. And I haven't yet made my mind, which hairdo suits me the best, and which sunglasses go well with this SHEINSIDE dress. I carry a couple of shoe pairs in my bag, and for the first time, I don't eat birthday cake, but drink Coca-Cola. A paradox. I'm 23 now.
RU: Мне 23. Прошел еще один год, и я до сих пор не поняла, принес он больше потерь или приобретений. В свой День рождения я не улетела в Милан на Неделю Моды, как планировала. Не оказалась на показе Dolce & Gabbana, как было задумано. Свежий шенген в моем загранпаспорте остался нетронутым. Самыми неожиданными оказались поздравления от самых неожиданных людей, зато самые ожидаемые о моем празднике забыли. Были и те, чьи поздравления могли стать для меня лучшим подарком. Но и они забыли тоже. Наблюдая за окном московскую погоду подстать моему настроению, я без особого энтузиазма собиралась на бал. Вместо запланированного показа мне предстояло провести несколько часов на шумной вечеринке с полупустым бокалом, потому что так велели друзья. Они явно были против моего одинокого пребывания дома, но уже к полуночи алкоголь заставил их забыть, с кем они пришли и кого хотели поздравить. Мне 23. А я до сих пор не определилась, какая прическа мне больше идет и какие очки подходят к платью SHEINSIDE. Ношу в сумке сразу несколько пар, впервые не ем праздничный торт, а пью Coca-Cola. Парадокс. Мне 23.

  1. Hi Anna! Thank you for your comment on Occhiondolo's blog...also because it got me finding out your VERY stylish page!
    Happy belated birthday and...don't worry: both the sunglasses you are wearing are cool!

    And if you lose them too often, you should try hanging them to an Occhiondolo necklace and forget the problem :)
    Ciao from Italy!

  2. happy b-day Anna!! i am 34 and i can tell you, that a lot of paradox things will happen to your life !!!So chin up girl, drink your coka-cola, ignore the people who forgot to wish you, eat cake every day untill your next b-day...cause baby with this red dress you look like a million dollar and nobody can take it from you!!!:))
    from greece with lots of love

  5. You have a dancer's feet. With this I mean that any dancer would be very jealous of your feet. Although it might not look like it, this is a compliment.
    Also, meh, I rarely ever celebrate birthdays so I'm not the best person to try and cheer you up. You have a beautiful dress, good health (it seems), a stunning figure, you know (at least) two languages and in all honesty, I quite like the way you write in English too. Be proud of these things and if you're not happy with the friends you have, go out and meet new people, it's easier than it seems. You have a lifetime ahead of you to be bitter about birthdays. With affection,

  6. happy birthday Anna.A stunning look as always xxx

  7. wow, what a great styling! I am delighted with your blog, how about shared observations? :)


  8. Happy birthday and you look stunning!!!

  9. very beautiful baby...


  10. These photos are beyond gorgeous and that red dress looks so fantastic! Just beautiful. x E

  11. I'm turning 25 in less than a month and it's not so much fun to get more and more numbers
    on your "plate" year after year, but they're just years. It might not feel like that, but believe me that
    there're people which are older than me and they feel and live as if they would be 10 years younger,
    then there're people younger or my age which feel as if they would be 20 years older and that's how
    they look like and live.
    You look breathtaking, feminine and even tho people hurt you sometimes, it's not a reason to get
    sad and dwell on it for too long. Look at the bright side, it's much better and you have so much to
    be thankful about :)

  12. С Днём рождения!! Какие красивые фото. Не могу пройти мимо без комментария)

    Люблю Саввинскую набережную. В прошлом году я сидела вот точно так же и была уверена в своём будущем на ближайшую пятилетку. Будущее кардинально поменялось через несколько месяцев. Просто сшибло с ног.
    Мне 25 и каждый свой День рождения я мечтаю отметить "так, чтобы не было, как в прошлом году". Возможно, однажды это удастся) А вообще - этот праздник придумали злобные тётки, чтобы считать года своих "подруг")) Не грусти, лёгкий сплин в этот день - признак интеллекта и тонкой душевной организации.
    Be happy :)

  13. happy birthday! what an amazing dress, love it :)

  17. а я не отмечаю свой др последние несколько лет. всем говорю, поздравлять не надо, спасибо, и подарки можете себе оставить. просто для меня это не праздник. вот не знаю почему.
    мне противны стали сладкие речи коллег на работе, это не родные мне люди и никогда ими не будут.
    самые самые близкие итак меня любят, я это знаю и мне этого хватает

  18. здорово, мне нравится, со вкусом и с чувством, зарядилась позитивом. Очень интересный блог, спасибо

  43. Designer Exposure es un buen lugar para comprar su Bolsos Michael Kors original.
    The Woven Tote es también una selección impresionante en el Bolsos Michael Kors Baratos.
    Bolso de alta calidad que debe contemplar absolutamente un Bolsos Michael Kors Outlet.
    Du kommer att upptäcka en handfull detaljer som du kan förvänta dig att komma över på en vanlig Michael Kors Rea.
    Du kan hitta ett antal platser som ger Väska Michael Kors.
    Sortimentet är fantastiskt för alla som letar efter en MK Väska.
    Håll dina ögon öppna för den här säsongens val som kommer att presenteras under bara några månader och det kommer utan tvekan att bli spektakulärt.
