This city indeed was made for lovers. Wandering around Paris, holding each other’s hands, falling in love with life itself, and making promises that only two of you, well & Paris of course, will know.

I think, we all decide for ourselves what we see around us. We decide by what we choose to grow in the depths of our souls. If you have a light inside, you will see it all around you; if you keep love in your heart, the same way you will spread it and share it with the world. If you are empty and sad, no one and nothing may save you, even Paris. As I mentioned in the previous post, this trip actually changed my mind and awoke my soul, reminding what it is exactly that I want in life. It is still hard for me to fully answer to all the questions that I, as an almost senior year student, have. It is hard to stop worrying and be quite sure in the future, but that’s life & this is how it works. We may act as we control our lives: achieving goals, staying motivated, growing and moving forward, however, there is no guarantee of tomorrow at all. But isn’t it the reason to celebrate life, to take it easy, to enjoy every single moment, to capture as many memories as you can, to love fully, to help others, to forgive, to become better, to work on yourself, to dream big, to make new friends, to forget all the pain from the past, to stay soft and kind, to have open mind and warm heart, to be who you are and to become the best version of yourself, without comparing yourself to others?

Don’t let the noise, that people around you make, to be louder than the voice of your intuition/soul/heart/your-inner-self, you name it, because in the end of the day, you are the only person who knows what is best for you. And this is one of the lessons that Paris taught me.

Love, Leila.

Paris, Je T’Aime

It is always hard to sum up your whole trip into words, to try to illustrate and to tell about a new place that you have been to, and it’s even harder to tell about a city that not only inspired you but helped you to find all the answers to the questions in your head.

Paris, I love you.

It sounds tacky, but I am proud to say that I am one of those lucky people who got a chance to fall in love with this city. Everything there looked so familiar as if I’d always lived there, as if in one of my previous lives (which I’m not quite sure of, but still) I was here: I lived & I loved. I Loved…

Paris, more than any other city that I’ve been to, made me think of my future, of my true identity, of my dreams 5 years ago and now, and most importantly it reminded me my true values. I’m still trying to analyze it all and understand myself, and as soon as I will succeed in that, I will be happy to share it with you, as always. <3

I will share more in my next posts from Paris, but for now check out a vlog from Paris!

They say Milan is all about fashion, brands and shopping, but what if I’ll tell you a little secret, it is also a great place for art lovers. Those who are always pretty much enthusiastic about visiting galleries, wandering and admiring the beauty of the things that were created many centuries ago. I should admit, that I’m one of those humans. So, as soon as I arrived to Milan I was extremely happy to finally check every single masterpiece they had there. And here I am today sharing those precious moments with you, guys. Hope you enjoy!

Love, Leila.

Говорят, что Милан – столица моды и шопинга, но, что если я скажу вам, что это не совсем так? Милан – это также рай для любителей/ценителей искусства, тех, кто может часами ходить по галереям, рассматривать все те произведения искусства, которые были созданы задолго до нашего существования. Так вот, должна признать, я одна из таких людей. Так, что как только я приземлилась в Милане, я сразу поспешила увидеть воочию все, что только могло быть в итальянских галереях. И наконец, я могу поделиться этим с вами. Надеюсь, вам понравилось!

Люблю, Лейла.
