Miss Auto D’Elegance

“I can’t think of any better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself.” 

This quote of Emma Stone is highlighted on the home page https://autoelegance.com.au of the Miss Auto D’Elegance pageant website. 

Since I have gotten involved in it, I understood why this statement could be the best description for the pageant event. 

I am not a huge fan of pageants. I did some and thought it was enough. Why would I? :

  • Charity cause? Oh come on! – you want to help a non-profit organisation, you go and do it from your own heart, you don’t need to be “crowned” to do good things in life. 
  • Being cool? If I want to feel cool, I will do something that brings happiness in my life without all this pageant shine.

However, there is something bigger, more meaningful and powerful about Miss Auto D’Elegance – this is not just an event, a pageant, a competition. This is a celebration of style, fashion and beauty in the most unique and attractive way you can run in Australia. 

“This Event will showcase a Beauty Pageant inside a Private Jet Hanger lined up with 20 Million dollars worth of Exotic Super Cars. A great networking event where Fashion, Beauty and Community comes together to celebrate the Launch of our Inaugural Worlds First Beauty Contest and Fashion Runway show inside a Private Jet Hanger.”

This is all about the right combination of elements relevant to me:

  • Cars – I was born in the family surrounded by the cars industry the whole my life until I moved to Australia. Cars were always standing at parents’ home backyard like big shiny toys – this is what you can expect being raised by two biggest cars entrepreneurs in the Russian Far East or just simply my mum and dad;
  • Charity – every year I am aiming to do something for a good cause. I am currently working on fundraising and digital marketing for one charity but it’s not the limit of what I can do;
  • Stage – this is not something I can explain easily. There is a certain, rare sort of butterflies cruising inside my stomach when I am coming on stage; and nothing else can trigger that rare sort of butterflies;
  • Meeting new people – what a stupid assumption to join a pageant for winning. You join a pageant to meet new interesting people, have fun, discover new mindsets, open horizons, network and meet soulmates in the areas of your interest;
  • Journey – life is a journey and a series of events. Miss Auto D’Elegance is a journey, experience you go through with other involved stakeholders. Welcome party, photoshoots, guest speakers, event invitations to enrich your own mindset, learn something new and share your experiences with others.

“The vision for this contest is to open the opportunities for Young Women to extend their talents and dreams to work alongside the various Automotive Charity Programs and challenge themselves to be the best they can be.The winner of Miss Auto D’Elegance will serve as the Charity Ambassador to the various Community Events and promoting awareness across different Charity Programs.” – Organisers’ view..”

The event is on next Saturday 9th November. The grand finale that will be captured by numerous media, witnessed by thousands of people, delivered in the most memorable and luxury style you can imagine.

Script Writer – Life Creator

It is impressive how you can swim against the tides but still end up where you haven’t planned to be.
I believe that there are things that meant to happen regardless your will.
I believe that it still doesn’t let you to ignore the responsibility for your own life.
Imagine you are a script writer for a Hollywood film 🎞 – would you carelessly let a new movie script to be another fiction rubbish?
What if you are a film director of that rubbish – do you really want to sign your name off for that?
What if you are a producer of that film – you don’t want to invest your money in rubbish, do you?
Imagine you are writing ✍️ a script 📝 for your life – you don’t want this to be a rubbish.
When you have a pen and a paper to write up a script – go after your dreams there, not people.
Right sketch of your script will do its job for you and will cast the right people in your life.
Do not forget that you still hold that pen and paper – you can re-write it when needed. Also, keep in mind that some casts might want to leave your new creation as it’s not part of their plan. But it is the plan for your dreams – well, then you know what you do.
Get in and out – part of your life. Natural flow – the real beauty of life.
Blog is like a mini version of that script – you can create whatever you want and it will attract likes from right people.
I’ll finish this post to start writing my script.

Life can be good when you are disliked

or how to deal with “those favourites”

New Loud Thoughts – been a while

I know people have different opinions of me. Some of them are negative. 

In the past it could hurt. In the past there was a desire to hide or run away. In the past it could cause tears. People seemed rude. In the past there was a temptation to be liked by everyone..

In the present I damn love it. I can feel that I am a better version of myself when I cannot please a crowd – makes me feel I am growing faster than that crowd. I like when not everyone likes me – it makes me feel that I have different points of view, unique style, interesting life that makes people talk of me. It is addictive. I don’t like people who are liked by everyone – they sound too fake to me…please, argue in return if I am wrong but, honestly, there is something wrong with those “everyone’s favourites”..

The only thing I know in this game is I always need to be fair with myself: do what I love to do; do what I won’t be ashamed in the future; do what makes people who love me proud of me.

Time for more opportunities for self-development, growth..and time to annoy “those everyone’s favourites” with my life successes. 

Just wanted to expand on what to do when that society judgement tries to impact on you.

When you fly to Melbourne to get this shot ❤

Make those judgemental people confused. When you hear a “story” about yourself, first of all, congratulate yourself – you are an interesting person, you are talked about. You have something that turns other people’s attention from their boring lives to you amazing and colourful one.

Second of all, do nothing. 

Seriously, just be spontaneously quiet (it is easy for me to be “spontaneously quiet” because I am normally not the quietest one).

Never confirm what they say about you – not because it is no ones business or you want to keep it quiet. It just doesn’t worth your attention – please, value your time, do not be like them.

Never decline what they say about you – not because they would think you just protect yourself or you are a lier. JUST VALUE what they don’t – your own time.

To conclude, finish it on a high note – smile. Give them something that they don’t have – positivity and smile. 

Be generous with it – they won’t use it anyways because it has come from you and people normally make this simple mistake of measuring others based on themselves. 

Or

You can bomb it – be honest , make them meet brutal facts (remember if you choose to be harsh, go to the end; otherwise, it’s useless) but keep that smile…to annoy them again. 

Then observe – develop the skill of reading others. You will get all the cards ♦️ in your hands then. How to use these cards ♥️ – will be decided by your angel or demon.

Life is your own theatre

Fash + Fit

It was a bit of a risk to combine two different industries and expect a good result. 

Fashion – the word associated with runways, glamour, style trends. 

Fitness – Health, gym, marathons.

They are different so how can I really pitch them to be together? I can explain:

Attitude

Coming back to my previous topic about motivation – who are you training for? For yourself? To impress someone else? If you set up the right and healthy attitude, you train to look good for yourself. You want to look healthy, fit, skinnier or toned – all depends on your personal goals. Now, let’s take Fashion. If you are interested in Fashion, you probably have or aim to have a good sense of style and after important Fashion trends. You pay an extra attention to what you wear when you come out. You are getting ready before an important business meeting. What do you need Fashion for? Same thing again – for yourself? Impress someone at one event? Wear someone glamourous for horse races at Randwick? 

You start with the right attitude. You understand that things you build in life starts from you. If you have ever had an experience to move to another continent when you are a teenager that doesn’t know what she wants, you might come to realisation that you have to build self base before you can build something else in life. I cannot build my life looking at someone’s one – I need to look at what I do. I cannot get impressed by someone’s achievements only – I need to set up something for myself each month to feel I am moving. 

Attitude by @Angela_alina

When you go to the gym, you may notice more and more people are “dressing up” to the gym. Not literally. But trying to wear right sports gear, good active lifestyle brands, etc. Many fitness blogs suggest to wear “cool” gym wear to boost motivation to exercise more. I can definitely see the link between those two. You start with the attitude. You want to see yourself successful, fit, healthy and stylish. It is not a secret that you might be toned and skinny and look quite sexy but if you wear a dress that look like a bag for potatoes on you, your toned body disappears. And, of course, you can buy the most expensive suit from the best Italian designer – it probably looked so gorgeous on the runway – but it looks ugly on you because your body is poisoned with junk food, lack of movement and first signs of ageing.  I like to see and promote more on my page fashion in fitness.

It is not only wear something trendy at the gym but wear Fashion and Fitness within you..

Protect Your Personal Space

We live in the world of constant interaction. 

My life consists of 24/7 unstoppable interaction experience; meeting new people, going on events, communication over social media and, finally, writing the blog which is also a sort of interaction. I have unpublished blog that I keep for myself for now..it is also interaction…with myself. 

Realisation of a big influence of all these social aspects of my life made me become very protective of my personal space. It is that my own world that I keep to myself and not willing to share with anyone.

You say it sounds like another selfish [loud] thought from me. 

Depends how you look at it. 

When you want to stay alone for some time to recharge yourself, shuffle some of your thoughts, go on a long walk and do not really worry to reply on numerous messages; it is the way to come back to people you love and respect, to the rest of the society refreshed, happy and spread your energy and positivity on them. Is it that selfish? 

You shall understand the importance of your own space. 

Collaboration with Adela Catalina and Hari Menon, published on @Angela_alina

This is your mental wellbeing. Do not forget that you are the one in charge of it, not the society. 

People say that your lifestyle and behaviour habits you had when you were a child make the final decision on how you are going to behave when you have grown up. I can see the link here between protection of my own space and the way I was raised. 

When I was little, my family made a big effort to protect me from anything that can hurt me, sometimes not even given me an opportunity to make my own mistakes. However, you cannot avoid mistakes and live in a protected bubble. One day you come out and explore the world, so I did it at the end of my teenage life.  

I was controlled – of course, how can you assist your child to avoid mistakes without controlling their actions? – Typical Russian system of raising the kids.

Therefore, one day I invented wings and flew away. I protect my social freedom from that moment. 

I think it was good timing with everything though. I can see how some of my high school friends who were giving a lot of freedom to explore the world when they were little made them forget to explore themselves. I was not permitted to do many things I wanted to do, and explore something that other teens could do. Therefore, I had enough time to explore myself until I turned 18.

However, there is one thing that I got out of my childhood experience. I won’t let anyone to enter my personal space without my own permission. Only people who respect it can surround me.

EXTERNAL vs INTERNAL 💚

Big topic is about motivation. What makes you to look after yourself?

Think what type of motivation is actually dominant in you

Is it something internal? Or are you doing it to look good for someone ? How about a scenario when that someone is gone? Nothing and no one is permanent – that’s what I believe in. 🤷‍♀️ What are you going to do when your external motivator is no longer around – will you ruin what’s you worked for ?
It’s not selfish to be good for yourself, to choose health for your own lifestyle. 🍃

Someone might judge me now (perhaps, judging not just now – all the time) saying that it’s too much of self love here – well, if nothing is permanent, why then is it a selfish move to work on your internal motivation?

I’ve seen some of my friends in the past who made an effort to be liked by someone..guess the outcome..broken hearts, self hate, aggression and depression.
🌟🌟🌟
The way how you feel about yourself inside influences people like a magic stick; it’s proven, it works..
🌟🌟🌟

You need to check what type of motivation is dominant in you. I am not saying you need to just focus on your intrinsic motivation; however, make your passion and goals are independent from external influences.

It might be hard at the beginning and don’t expect it will happen straight away. It takes long months (some people require even longer) but the result will make you feel free in some ways.

Blog by Social Media

I never wanted to be a strong person at some point of life..then I realised I wouldn’t achieve what I achieved without some strengths. When you are weak, people will hurt you and this is why you need to have some sort of self-spirit to take a bigger step towards you dreams.

I used this concept on my fitness journey and I am proud to have results I have. Why not to apply this to other aspects of your life? Happy to chat about this idea!

Pancakes 🥞 are a little piece of my childhood. Running around with boys (hence, my nickname was the boy 😆), playing football (or, I’d say trying to do it), then came back home and enjoyed best ever family made pancakes 🥞 
Great times! Obviously, pancakes are very high carbohydrates calorie food and I forgot a moment when I enjoyed some last time.. There is only one way to enjoy my pancakes, healthy & guilt free! Thanks, Blackbelt Protein @blackbelt_protein for sending me fantastic gift and help me discover my guilty pleasure from childhood in a healthy way #healthychoices

I like easy but nutritious breakfast. When you have just done intensive workout in the morning, it is crucial to have breakfast enriched with protein.

hree forms of proteins are included in the BBP pancake blend. Milk Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate, and Egg white powder. Pancakes Include vitamins B1, B2, B6, C,D & E and 74 trace minerals which provides bone, joint & digestive health benefits. Great for an intense cardio workout!

Original post from @Angela_alina

Best way of preparing BlackBelt Pancakes that I found is

Mix 65g powder with an 150ml almond milk.
Toppings:
Pancakes already honey flavored so it’s good to add a teaspoon of honey
1 medium size banana
100g protein fat free yogurt 
A bit of cocao

Enjoy! Feel free to share your best Pancake recipes here 🙂 🥞🥞🥞

Before the journey starts

When I say to someone that I actually do like airplanes and chill at airports, some people get confused or surprised. There is SO MUCH ENERGY in the air, mix of human feelings and emotions. I like to watch people: they run somewhere, drink coffee, laugh and cry – it makes me excited.! There is one more reason why I like to be in the sky. You have time for your inner self. 


I like to live unstoppable life: if you catch me at home, it’s a luck. Normally, I’ll be busy with my projects, work, modelling, meeting new people every week, enjoying my beach walks or runs, exercising – this list can be expanded more! 


Only in the air, I cannot keep it going (well, I just cannot leave the transport in the middle of flight, I guess 😂🤔). I can slow down there, relax with my glass of red and breathe. I can procrastinate about things around me; reflect on last few months; evaluate my current life direction and just rejuvenate my mind. 
It is my own way of meditation 🧘‍♀️ Do you have your own way of meditation/self-reflection? 🧘‍♀️✈️
