New Ends, New Beginnings

Hello, my dear readers!

I launched Sabina Supernova only three years ago, back in 11 January 2011, but it seems like it's been a lifetime ago. While I loved working on the website, somehow boredom and weariness cooled my enthusiasm. Eventually, as you all know, I started posting very sporadically and taking month-long breaks between posts. And then two months. And soon, I wasn't posting at all anymore.

Well, I've found a cure. Although it sounds counter-intuitive, the answer was simple - beginning all over again. The truth is, I love blogging, but I needed a change. And sometimes in order to change you have to start from scratch. This is why I am extremely happy to introduce you to my new blog today - Girl vs Globe! The website will be more than a fashion blog - it will be about travel, about our society and art. I will write more, but I will take loads of pictures, too. I just got a DSLR for Christmas and once I figure out how to use it, they might even be nice! Without further ado, here is a little teaser...

In Line For The Throne

♫ Lorde - Tennis Court

"Where has she gone?" some of you may have asked yourselves during my two-month absence, wistfully flicking through my archived posts. At least that's the way I envision it in my head. Well, my darlings, I have quite literally packed my bags and gone off to a semi-voluntary exile in the depths of good old & cold Mother Russia! While getting used to the ways of my new adopted land, blogging was not at the forefront of my brain. The idea of shivering in the rain with my shitty digital camera simply doesn't sound very appealing after returning from a long day at work or in class. 

Luckily, I still have a few beautiful photos from my summer vacaycay which I am more than happy to share. Looking at these snaps from sunny Monte Carlo makes me yearn for warmth - but alas, here I am, sipping hot gunpowder tea in my dorm room and dreaming of the day when I will see more than a the grey outline of a deteriorating Soviet building from my window. Don't get me wrong - Russia can be so beautiful it brings tears to your astonished eyes. But more often than not, it chooses to confront you with its other face - the unsmiling face of utter chaos, long queues and permanent disorganisation. Did you know that Dante's "Inferno" was written as a metaphor for Russian bureaucracy? Was it not? Are you sure?

Lips Are Dripping Honey

♫ Carrie Underwood - Good Girl

As promised, the backdrop of today's outfit post is the beautiful French Riviera. Sunshine, the sea and palm trees... I'm genuinely not complaining! The photos were taken with my dad's new Nikon D600 - I adore the quality. For my first outing on the beachy coast, I opted for a fairly sophisticated outfit to blend in among the Versace-clad swarms of Russian oligarchs and the statuesque bleach blonde glamazons accompanying them. I suppose this counts as practise for my upcoming move to Moscow!

Ain't In His Head Now

♫ Spin Doctors - Two Princes

Bonjour, mesdames et messieurs! Today I am posting from Menton on the sunny French Riviera - a little town just a stone's throw away from Monte-Carlo in the West and the Franco-Italian border in the East. Before I get around to posting some photos of me strutting alongside palm trees as they quietly sway in the wind, however, there is this last look from London which I'd like to share with you. As I may have mentioned in one of my previous posts, I am about to move to Moscow for a year to improve my Russian and to see how political science is taught at the Higher School of Economics. That means I have had to vacate my amazing house in Northern London, so here is my final goodbye to the fabulous British capital - until I return next autumn, that is! :)

The Fashion Fringe

I realise fringe handbags are probably "out" already, but I've never been one to follow fashion trends religiously and so here I am, rocking the hell out of my new purse amidst the trendsetters of Covent Garden! I got it from Chicnova for only $30, so it was an absolute steal. 

I have two pieces of good news. Firstly, I am on holiday in Menton, a little town in Côte d'Azur, so my upcoming posts will be set to the beautiful backdrop of the French Riviera. Secondly, my dad recently bought a Nikon D600 and so has been crowned my chief photographer for this family vacation. That means beautiful photos with blurry backgrounds - what more could one want in life? 

How about you, ladies and gentlemen? Have you gotten around to going on vacation this summer? If so, where to and how was it?
