American roads and déjà vu

I more than sure that every one of us had a déjá vu. It happened to me today.

The story is: in January I lost a hubcap of my car’s wheel. I actually consider my car as a new best friend. However, it’s my husband who usually notices the loss of hubcaps. As I said, in January we lost the hubcap. But we found it in three days on the roadside not very far from our house.

And so, three days ago I lost the hubcap again (from the other wheel). As usual, my husband discovered that fact. This morning we traditionally found the loss on the same street as the first time.

Déjá vu

Unfortunately, we were unlucky, and hubcap was broken.

My friends, be careful driving on Hawthorn Street (New Bedford), street of “lost and found” hubcaps.

How often did you have déjá vu? What is was?

Speaking with an accent

Hello my friends.

I speak with an accent. Of course, I do. I am Russian and do not have linguistic education or specific talent. My husband tells me, “If you get rid of your accent you will loose your charm”.

I try hard to sound right but often get the questions as “What nationality are you? Or where are you originally from?”. It’s quite normal in my situation. Continue reading “Speaking with an accent”

Simple and natural mask for beautiful hair

What could be more beautiful than healthy hair? Healthy hair is the best decoration for a woman.

In different countries, there are different methods of hair care.

Personally, I strongly believe that eating nuts helps my hair grow. 😁

And I love making this hair mask:

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp vodka
  • 1 tsp olive oil or castor oil
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Aloe juice (option)

All ingredients are mixed and applied to the hair. Massage the scalp a little bit.  Cover the hair with plastic, and the top can be wrapped with a towel. At the ends of the hair, I recommend applying natural yogurt. Continue reading “Simple and natural mask for beautiful hair”

East Meets West

There’s an expression: Men love their country not because it is great, but because it is their own.

When you live in your country, you take everything for granted. You admire nature, beautiful buildings, proud of the achievements of compatriots. And you know you’re the part of your country’s history.

But why do foreigners love Russia?

Recently I’ve learned why at least from my Australian friend’s point of view.  Obviously, she was interested in Russia. That is why she contacted me a few years ago on a social media website. We became friends very quickly. Two young, ‘relatively young’, women may have much in common. At the same time our lives were completely different though. Time flies, life changes; we are still friends.

The Fifth Anniversary of Arrival, looking back

Is 5 years a short or long period of life? It depends on many factors. Maybe there’s no right answer or in other words, all answers are right.

On October 20, 2013

I crossed the border of the country, which became my new home. Brave I was heading towards my new life, and was not afraid at all. Thinking I knew English and would be able to adapt quickly.

In fact, it turned out that I understood only every third word, I didn’t know the names of the products, I didn’t know how to cook American food and in general …..there was no buckwheat in the stores and butter tasted like margarine.

My “different” day.

How would you describe your day? Name your past day in one word. My word is “different”.

My morning was a little bit upsetting. I went to walk-in hairdressing salon, and didn’t get any service. Well, it happens. But I found another place, which is closer to my home, and even made an appointment. Moreover, it’s supposed to be cheaper. We will see.

Sweet Dreams: believe or not believe

The ability to interpret  dreams can help to know what to expect in the coming day. There are some proven ones by Siberian women who hardly sees dreams. So, don’t take them seriously.

Hello my friends.

Do you dream, do you believe in them, can you interpret?

I have dreams very rarely. When I was a teenager (14-16 years), I believed in dreams. Then I’ve grown up and stopped having dreams. I didn’t really want. The thing is while you are in bed, you remember your dream.  Then you forget and worry: if it was a prophetic dream and I don’t remember. Anyway, I see dreams not often, but can share some knowledge in the interpretation of some of them. My husband usually laughs at me: where did you get it from? And I answer: from life. He tells that Russians are superstitious and he is right.
