spain vlog

Spain vlog finally! It took me almost a year to create a video I shot being in Spain and Czech Republic last summer. Due to this I officially open my YouTube channel - youtube.com/user/funkyjoleisa. There I will add other vlog and maybe even more (your ideas are welcome in the commen bar!).

Please watch this video and tell me what do you think, it was my first ever experience with Adobe Premiere and not everything went smooth. but generally I am pleased with the result.

Give the video a thumbs up if you liked it and subscribe to my channel for more! :)

diy memobook

Special kind of post today - the very first Do It Yourself on my blog. I made an attempt to re-design an old childish memobook I had since I was fourteen I think and hopefully it turned out to be nice.

What you will need: an old memobook you want to re-decorate, some paper for outer parts (I used IKEA wrapping paper), two sheets of thick paper for inner side, set of brads (or stickers, crystals or whatever you want to be inside), double tape, glue, ruler, scissors and a pencil. Also later I used golden ribbon, matching threads and a needle to sew.

Step one: measure your book and make a scheme if needed - what paper size you need to cut off to cover the whole thing.

Step two: re-draw your scheme carefully on a wrapping paper (using ruler to make a precise one) and cut it out.

Step three: using double tape, attach your wrapping to a book, try to strain it so there won't be any wrinkles.

Step four: make a hole in a paper and bend the ends as the shape of the hole (heart-shaped in my book)

Step five: cut and glue thick paper to the inner side of the book.

Step six: don't forget to make a hole in a paper when you will work with front part - this may be not very precise.

Step seven: take your brads (or what you've chosen) and attach them to the thick paper in a manner you want - so that you can see it through the hole when you close the book.

Be careful with your fingers - that does hurt!

The hole didn't look as accurate as I expected it to be, so I found some golden ribbon and matching threads to cover the edges with it.

Step eight: sew! And again, be careful with your fingers, better use a thimble.

The end! This is how my memobook turned out to be!

And the very last step: clean all the mess you've made... :)

Hope you enjoyed my fisrt DIY blogpost, all the supplies I used were available in a local bookstore and in my home. Please tell me your opinion in the comments or whether I shall make more posts like this in the future!

yoga pad

I finally managed to buy myself a new laptop - Lenovo Yoga Pad, and I am loving it! My old laptop was very slow, heavy and battery didn't work at all, and now I feel like I am on track again. This laptop has different regimes of work and a touchscreen display, so it may serve as a tablet, probably it is the most stunning feature of all. Also I like the colour, had to spend some time to find this exact one.

hello 2014

Would you ever believe I will post about New Year in March? Me neither, with my schedule I have more prepared posts than I actually able to post, but I couldn't skip this one, because New Year is always a marvelous time I spend with my family, so there is a little bit of warmth and comfort I get there.

Packing my makeup.

Setting you into a Christmas mood for the next year :)

Feeling super-comfy.

The most festive drink.

I always relax while playing the piano, sad I don't have one in Moscow.

Cooking panna cotta with my Mom. I am not a fan of jellys but this one was very delicious even for my taste.


Pre New Year visiting of a theater with fellow physicists. Just after I dyed my hair - oh I love how it looks.
