Running marathon: PINK RUN 2014 Kaunas

Sports

Hi!

Last Sunday, I have participated in the last running marathon this year – PINK RUN 2014. As you have probably already noticed from the photos and the name of the run, all of the participants had to wear something pink: t-shirt, wig or any other pink accessory (there was even a special station where you could get you beard or hair colored with pink spray paint). We did that not because all the runners really like the color pink but because this was a charity run for raising awareness and money to fight breast cancer. 

This disease is very near to my heart because my grandma died form cancer 4 years ago, so, I was eager to participate in this run. Moreover, is always a great fun to run through city with a bunch of strangers dressed in pink wigs:).

A few of my friends also ran this short 5 km distance from one part of the city (Medicine university) to the city center (town square in the old town). After the run all of athletes were given some tea and cookies as a thank you for donating the money and for running. My result was okay, I had a hard time breathing while running because the weather was quite cold and windy. What is more, I didn’t really tried to get a good result because this run had other purpose – to come together as a community and do something good for those who need our help.

Bellow you will find a few photos before the start which I have taken myself. You can find more information about the run here. Article from the local newspaper and photos of a professional photographer here.

Fashion : Autumn #OOTD

Beauty&Fashion

Hello!

Can you believe that it is almost the end of September? I am still living in the summer, but this morning the weather in Lithuania truly showed that it was autumn. So, I decided to share with you one of my outfits for autumn. It simple, comfortable but still stylish. It has edgy, sporty and masculine vibe with a touch of femininity.

Let’s start with the clothes:

Skinny black jeans from a local boutique

Dark purple vest top from NewYorker

Khaki color over-sized shirt – I used to hate khaki color, I had a khaki coat when I was younger and I would fall into a dark mood every time I put it on, but I really love this shirt – found it this weekend at a thrift store – it cost me 1 Euro – absolute bargain. I can wear it loose, tucked into pants or a skirt or even tied into a knot at my waist.

Shoes – classic low top Converse all stars in white.

Hair – in the first photo my hair are simply put to one side, but after that I put them into ponytail – it goes better with the look.

Accessories : Chunky silver necklace from NewYorker

H&M silver rings in different width. H&M shop does best rings ever.

My bag is really old, it has two smaller straps and one long strap, some metallic studs outlining the shape. Color – dark brown (real leather).

Nails: I painted my nails with Rimmel London sparkly pink polish to add femininity and some color to this masculine and quite dark outfit. I am not particularly happy with this nail polish, it last only a couple of days. It might be because it is quote old. The color khaki is really neutral , so pink goes perfectly with it.

So, I hope you liked these short style post. The statement piece of the look is khaki shirt, which I found at the thrift store – you don’t need to spend a lot of money to look great. Most importantly, dress yourself in the way that makes you feel good! Have a great week and don’t let autumn clouds darken your mood!

Swimming marathon: Šveicarija (Switzerland) 2014

Sports

Hello everybody!!

As I have previously mentioned, I am a swimmer. And summer for swimmers means only one thing – open-water swims/championships/competitions. Yesterday (June 22nd) was first of them this year.

To begin with, I would like to clear some things out. In the the title of the post you can see that this swimming marathon is called Switzerland 2014. Switzerland is a name of the country in Europe, but it is also the name of a little village in my country – Lithuania. Near this village there are other villages called London and Paris. This is the map of my country and the red dot is that village with a name of a famous country.

Some facts about the marathon:
Distance: 1.5 km
Water temperature: 17C or 62.6F
Outside temperature: 13C or 55.4F
This was a 5th annual marathon (I have swam in all of them).

So, as you can see the water was warmer than the air. The conditions for swimming were terrible, I have got super cold after first 500 meters, my muscles became tense and it even seemed like my heart stopped beating or slowed down. However, after I finished the distance I felt amazingly, like I have accomplished something great. I live for the feelings like that. This marathon was not as cold as the one 5 years ago. In 2010 the temperature of the water was 14C or 57.2F.

The next marathon will be held on July 6th in my city – Kaunas.

Bellow you will find the photo of the lake we were swimming in and a picture of the medal I won. (I was second in my age group).

You can’t sit with us!

Hello Glen Cocos!

I guess that all of you know, that this year we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the amazing, incredible and unrepeatable movie “Mean Girls” by genius Tina Fey. I have seen it more than 10 times and it is the best chick-flick to see with your friends or a perfect film to watch alone after a long hard week. The movie tackles the issues of wanting to be popular, of thinking that you always have to look perfect. It deals with self-esteem problems that we all have in high school and this is why we can all relate to this movie.

I am so disappointed that Lindsey Lohan’s career went down hill because she was amazing as Cady Heron. And is is also the film that launched Rachel McAdams career (The Notebook was released like a month later). And don’t even get me started on Amanda Seyfried – I love every single movie she does (e.g. Red Riding Hood, Letters to Juliet) and I know all her parts in Les Miserables and Mamma Mia (I always sing along with Cosette and Sophie)

So, in honor of of this important anniversary I am definitely going to watch it again this evening. It you haven’t see this movie which I hardly doubt, you need to watch it ASP.

While you are preparing for a movie night maybe you want to dress up like your favorite character (on Wednesdays we wear PINK): http://www.trendhunter.com/slideshow/mean-girl#2

or make some dishes appropriate just for mean girls –

or maybe you are in a mood for scrap-booking – get inspired by Tyler Oakley’s The YouTuber Burn Book Edition –  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1YNSCRB6Sc

On a serious note, by using this powerful movie, help to spread awareness of the negative impacts of bullying between girls and post Kind Campaign’s photo: You CAN sit with us on your Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter or Facebook. I have already done it. Let’s all help to make our world a better place.10175265_406262082846823_1428706511_n

Have a nice weekend and next time choose a right table 🙂
