My sweet loves. How’s everyone? Hope you are all enjoying winter settling down in our backyards, the snow progressively starting to form on the concrete, the festive joy that sparkles up the streets and that that you already began transforming your living room into a Christmas parade with a fully decorated tree and cookies all over the place to satisfy your newly avid winter appetite. Common : it’s hot chocolate obligation on cold days! Am I right?

To be totally honest, lately, I’ve been floating in a bubble and that’s the main reason of my irregular posts. As you know I’m usually a machine, posting like crazy every single morning, but lately, and with my brain focused so much on music and on a few project that I’ll finally be able to reveal in 2015, I decided to act more humanly towards Kayture and post when it made me the happier because I know that if I do it with pleasure, I’ll be able to write and communicate with you guys much better. I would never settle down on writing just a sentence, to me this blog is like my open diary that I share with all of you. Wouldn’t it be sad if it was all blank?

I know you guys are understanding and you’ve been of such amazing support so far. I’ll write a full article about our goals and secret 2015 announcements on the day of New Year’s, a lot is to be expected, but all I can say is that we are definitely starting a new journey, that scares me in the most positive way possible… It excites me and kept me awake at night for months now. But it is so worth it.

Last time I wrote you guys, I was sharing with you the Louis Vuitton story we shot in Gstaad. Right after spending a couple of days in the swiss mountains, we left for Greece and to attend a beautiful couture event before flying back the very next day to Geneva. As soon as I set my foot in my bedroom, my body just gave up on me and I slept during the whole week-end. I am not even joking… Friday 9pm, I fall asleep, Saturday 4pm I wake up to notice what time it is, 4.05pm I fall back asleep on the other side of my bed, 9pm I wake up and watch Frozen, 11.30pm I am asleep again… This all lasted until Sunday 2pm when I actually decided to force myself out of bed to pack for Paris. At least now I know my batteries are fully recharged!

I never faced a situation like this one! My body giving up on me just like that. It was nuts…! My friends thought I disappeared from planet earth as I am constantly scotched up my phone, my Instagram was on pause mode and I even noticed some of you wondering what the heck I was doing. Well the answer is : I was snuggled in bed in the comfiest pyjama I own, wrapped up in a fully blanket, sleeping in the most unattractive position you could possibly imagine. Reality.

Now, I just woke up in my hotel room in Paris. We arrived yesterday to attend the new Louis Vuitton store opening on Avenue Montaigne. An absolutely mesmerizing shop. It’s so exciting to be back in Paris and to see all the lights in the streets, the smell cinnamon as you walk by a french bakery shop… Even when it’s dreadfully cold, Paris still looks just as gorgeous. We are staying in town for a week with a packed up schedule. There’s a lot to do before Christmas hits the place!

Here’s a little about the last couple of days but in this article, I am happy to share with you the very last article we shot in Tulum, Mexico, while we were there enjoying a fabulous time with the Lovers & Friends team. We had the pleasure to stay at the hotel Casa Mi Amor, which you can see in these images. The hotel is made of individual little bungalows, you have your own terrace, a private jaccuzi right by your doorstop and the most unbelievable sea view. It was the dreamiest place to shoot at and such a paradise to explore.

Thanks for sharing this warm Summer spirit photos! this is what I was craving for a long time of our Russian Winter! Can’t wait for my summer to begin too!

Looks like you’re in paradise x

Beautiful pictures. This looks like a stunning place to relax in too.


Hi kristina! Loved your post… I was somehow waiting for a post from tulum about the swimwear you whore “beverlly hills rugby club” looking one-piece.
I was looking for the product shot of the swimsuit to feature on my polyvore

Sometimes we have to press the pause button…

Amazing pictures, btw! :)

wow, amazing pictures! Tulum is definitely one my travel bucket list now! <3

Breathtaking photos! You are such a natural beauty!

Magnifiques photos comme toujours ! quel belle endroit waw

Wow!! This place is so wonderful! Love the pictures!

xx Su

Beautiful place & beautiful you!
Do not worry if you cannot post every single day. It’s obvious you’re overwhelmed with so much work!

Regards from new follower!!

Beautiful pictures, Kristina! You look so pretty and happy :)
Can’t wait to hear more about your plans and projects for 2015. Keep going, girl!

Kisses from Vienna,

Good to know that even you are capable of lapsing into sleep induced coma unattractively!

The photos are beautiful and make me want to go back to Mexico! You look lovely! xo, Christina

je suis impatiente de découvrir ces nouveaux projets, ce que tu fais dans la musique…
j’aime beaucoup cette tunique, mais pour moi, ce sera pas avant un moment… ici, c’est plutôt veste en laine et écharpe…

Well, I can understand what you are talking about, I mean the break down. It happens to me too when I’m over-pushing myself!
Although with my comment I wanted more to emphasize on your last paragraph. You are talking about the hotel and the amazing view of the sea, and I’m wondering, how right is it to pay a lot of money to have this “luxury”? Because in order for “rich” people to can enjoy this, there is a government that sold the beaches to a businessman and common people that leave in this country and pay taxes do not have a free access. Doesn’t this bother you at all?
(Don’t think it is an attack or something, I’m just interested to know your opinion about that!)

Lovely pics and great place! I love to see your photos :)

Its your blog and your life so be the master of it. As loyal readers, we definitely won’t mind the absence and will patiently wait for your next post. We’ll always be here for you.

The Lovers + Friends dress is really pretty and chic. I guess its structured detailing is such a reminiscent of a tuxedo that makes it perfect for both formal and casual events. Love the shot you take in Tulum especially the one in a hanging swing over the pool.


Wow, amazing pictures

Love, L

So relaxing! That’s what I need right now!;-) Beautiful place and photos!

Well, Kristina! All I can say is, “Thank God you’re human!” I completely understand how you feel. I only want to post when it feels natural and not forced either. I don’t mind sporadic posts from you. The thing is, I always look at your blog like Nicole of Gary Pepper. Sad when your posts aren’t up, but when they are, it’s VERY well worth the wait! I’m glad you got rest. How else would you do your passion so well? ;) xo

You should do exactly as you want ! This is your blog and success, and you should post just as you’d like.

But please, don’t disappear, hate when my favorite blogs post less :)

Can’t wait to see your big projects for 2015

I’m glad you got your rest! It’s really unrealistic to expect our bodies to endure full steam indefinitely. I hope you do take more time to take care of your health and relax!

Love from Munich, L

What a stunning location! Your life must be so stressful, poor thing. Get some deserved rest, go on a holiday, switch off your phone and unwind! Otherwise, this is going to take a toll on your health.

Such a lovely chic dress! And I love the more minimal makeup on you! Wish I was in Paris as well!

Amazing photos! You look stunning! :)

I really loved your blog post today. I agree that you should write whenever you feel like not to post anything forced and to stay happy doing this. Also, it’s good that you got some rest – being on the go all the time and handling Kayture needs battery recharging from time to time… ;-)

We’re all excited to hear about your 2015 plans. Good luck!

You are so perfect….. :*

This is stunning.

Love the asymmetrical zip on the dress!


To be honest I’m surprised you don’t crash more often with the amount of travelling you do! I guess once you allow yourself to relax then your body just kind of gives up and you end up in bed for 2 days! I hope you feel reset and recharged now :) Would love to see more of these pics from Tulum if you have more :)

Tulum looks absolutely beautiful. That dress is so chic!


Lovely dress. Looking forward to hearing your plans for 2015. xA

Love the photos! You look so amazing!
