It's funny, but my dear mommy and my sweetheart Anny have their birthdays in one day - on the 28 of July. And it is a real headache for me)))) Every year I do all my best to make both feel special and loved. It is not easy, you know)
And I want to add that I'm so happy and grateful to have this two people in my life. They are everything for me.

Discover yourself, before discovering the world

(c) Paladin Associates
Today I discovered that I am an ENFP That’s Extraverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Perceiving.
And suddenly I understood WHY I can't stop looking for my "lifework"))) Why I want to try something new. And of course it is easy to call me a weathercock due to my personality type, but I find it really important and affecting my life.

"ENFPs can be the warmest, kindest, and most sympathetic of mates; affectionate, demonstrative, and spontaneous. Many in relationships with an ENFP literally say, "They light up my life." But there is usually a trade-off: the partner must be willing to deal with the practical and financial aspects of the relationship, and the ENFP must be allowed the freedom to follow their latest path, whatever that entails."

My poor Ann) But what exonerates me - I deal with practical aspects)) She is an ISTP by the way.
If you want to test yourself, you can use this link: http://www.myersbriggs.org/my-mbti-personality-type/mbti-basics/ 
And if you are ENFP (as me) you can read about yourself HERE and HERE
Don't be affraid, it's not so bad) - there are many cute and nice things about us.

Our Lis and his story.

 As I have already said, the name Lis in Russian means "fox". And I think it is an absolutely right name for our dog))) He is naughty, funny, cheerful, sly and clever (like fox) and sometimes coward.
And from time to time people think he is a real fox because of his appearance.

It is funny, but I knew nothing about this breed. It is rather rare in Russia. And one day I was googling some cardigans (to wear))) and I saw this photo of a very funny dog. I fell in love with him. He was so amusing, so unusual! This breed was Welsh Corgi Cardigan. I read a lot of information (and learned there are two breeds of Welsh Corgis, the Cardigan and the Pembroke, each named for the counties in Wales where they originated), and found a funny legend about Welsh Corgi Pembroke. You can read it here.

We have looked through tons of Corgi Pembroke pics and finally understood that we want this dog!)

But the puppy was too expensive for us... We tried to find not a dog show puppy, just friend. And finaly I saw Lis in an advertisement! He was already 4 month old and he was the last puppy for sale. The price wasn't big and we decided to take a look at him. On the way there Ann told me: "We will just take a look. Now decisions today!". (She knew that I'm very impulsive person. I say first and think after. And to have a dog was my childhood dream.) So, I agreed with her. Lis was so funny little boy. One ear was with adhasive bandage (to be erected). He was sitting on his owner's knees and chewing an armchair's wooden knob. He was so sweet)))
And when the owner asked about our decision, Ann said "Yes. We will take him". I was shocked and so happy))))

Interiors in movies

People in cinemas... they watch the movie, follow the story, criticize the characters, shed a few tears over the story or laugh until they cry. However, sometimes they leave the cinema in the middle of the movie dissappointed - either with the actors or with the story, or maybe with both.
Of course I feel the same emotions about the film idea, actors or subject when I'm in the cinema, but I like the picture best of all (this happens, you know - the movie sucks, but the picture is awesome!) I admire beautiful interiors, even if the movie is boring. I'm mad about beautiful and atmospheric pictures!
And I decided to share my TOP10 films with awesome interiors with you)
So, let's start!

Hello and welcome to everyone. My name is Helena and i'm so happy to be here)
I started this blog to practise my English and to find international friends.
I was born in Moscow, Russia, I grew up here, I fell in love here too. But... my country doesn't recognize same sex marriages, so I and my partner Ann decided to move to Canada and to change our lives) Yes, we are a bit adventurers)
We are mums of 3 year old Welsh Corgi Pembroke boy. His name is Lis (in Russian it means fox). He is the best dog in the world!

Now Ann prepares to pass the exams for universities (we expecting to come in Canada in 2013). She is very smart and i definitely believe she succeeds. She decided to become a blogger too (but she will write in Russian) to share her experience in applying for and studying abroad with other russian people who are intrested in this theme.
