Time for introductions. Name: Dasha Origin: Kyiv, Ukraine Current location: New York City, USA Current Occupation: Senior Compliance Analyst in a boutique consulting Firm on Wall street with dreams of quitting the job one day and traveling the world Current clothing size: US 2, after a big meal – US 4 😊 Current hair color: Brown Current eye color: Brown - oh well, basic is good too, right?! Favorite drink: Tequila. Wine. Close competition-can’t pick one Favorite meal: Way to win my heart - French Fries. With ketchup only. No mayo, please. Favorite trip to-date: Northern California. Italy. Years since I left Ukraine: A lot… I almost lost count. Soon I can officially call myself a New Yorker! Why did I move? Came to New York to go to college, loved it here and decided to stay. I never looked back. Am I happy with my decision? I wouldn’t have it any other way. Yes, there were a lot of ups and downs, rivers of tears cried, hearts broken, all the loved ones left behind...in the end of the day it was all worth it - I live in the greatest city in the world, there’s not one like it. Will I ever go back to Ukraine? Ideally, I want to work and live in New York for 3 months, spend 3 months in Kyiv, 3 months in Bali (when it’s brutally cold in other two) and 3 months whenever my heart desires. I do not want to be chained to one location. Just go with the wind. At least for now. #newyorkcity#newyorkfashionblogger#fashionblogger#discoverunder5k#nycblogger#instagood#photography#fashion ##ootd#travel#motivation#bestoftheday#threecitiesonelife_travel#bloggerlife#instafashion#fashionblog#streetfashion#nycfashion#travelbloggerlife#wanderlust#icapture_nyc#unlimitednewyork#ig_great_pics#instapassport#thecreative#bumblebizz#shemeansbusiness

Life doesn’t get better by hope, it gets better by plan.⁣ ⁣ That’s what I wrote at the beginning of 2018 last year☺️ And well oh well if u know us, planning is our forte🥰⁣ ⁣ When do u start writing New Years resolutions? Have u reviewed the ones u wrote for 2018?⁣ ⁣ I found my notebook from the start of 2018 where I wrote my goals for the year.. It’s incredible what 12 months can do to ur emotional and professional status quo. ⁣ ⁣ One of the most important accomplishments of 2018 (in addition to career achievements) is actually launching this blog together with my friends. Why is it so important?⁣ ⁣ First, we all going out from our comfort zones and showing part of our lives to u guys. And it takes some guts🙌🏼⁣ & ⁣ Second, blogging and maintaining of insta is a humangous work. There is a lot of planning involved, constant struggle with insta agortithm and trying to find our niche without losing our charisma. ⁣ ⁣ Gonna jump on writing my NY resolutions today cuz it’s Monday, I got too much coffee already🙈😂 and have too many dreams and places to travel to❣️⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #torontofashion#torontoblogger#canadianblogger#fashioncanadians#sheisnotlost#winteroutfit#torontostyle#ootdtoronto#torontoinfluencer#torontostyle#torontopr#photooftheday#instagood#winterootd#dailystyle#discoverunder5k#streetstyle#whatiworetoday#urbanfashion#fashiondiaries#blogto⁣

I genuinely think it’s easier to unload trucks than date in NYC or Toronto. ⁣ ⁣ I have identified 🕵🏻‍♀️ several kinds of men based on experience here in Canada and those vague memories from what men used to be back home.⁣ ⁣ 🇺🇸🇨🇦Patagucci species - born and raised in North America (mostly downtown area). ⁣ ⁣ There is a trend of guys in NYC and Toronto - “patagucci dudes”. I see the above kind of men 90% of the time due to working in financial/accounting sector. Common characteristics: handsome (not bad for the start, eh?!) but arrogant like no tmr. They wear Patagonia vests and Gucci sleds, they work in finance, play golf and pretend they are DOING DEALS 24/7 💰. They were usually born and raised in North America meaning they would know nothing like opening a door for the woman (basic gentleman starter pack), assemble a table or hammer a nail. ⁣ ⁣ 🇺🇦UkrainianMen.⁣ ⁣ The chance to meet the Ukrainian with the above characteristics in Toronto is the same as to win a 60 million lotto.. Zero chance. Period. ⁣ ⁣ However, on a brighter side this kind of men is well preserved in Ukraine. U have to import the one from Motherland I guess..🙄They are like those limited edition handcrafted Chanel bags where instead of going to Paris u actually have to fly to Kyiv, grab that Prince Charming 🕺🏻 persuade him that North America is where the dreams come true and literally drag him here.⁣ ⁣ 👨🏻‍💻West Coast startup dudes. ⁣ ⁣ I have just recently discovered them. Need some more time to analyze. Stay tuned for the thesis on this kind of species..😂⁣ ⁣ What do u think on dating in North America? How and where did u find ur significant other?

📍San Francisco (and its surrounding Bay Area) is a tech capital of the US. Every big giant tech corporation has offices here: Apple, Google, Facebook, Tesla, Whatsapp, Dropbox etc. Three years ago, on my first trip to this city, I didn’t like the city at all: it was cold, foggy, windy and it smelled like fish everywhere (we mostly walked around Fisherman’s Wharf)!!! I really couldn’t understand why people where so mesmerized by it? - However, this time around, I went to San Francisco with an open mind and it blew me away. I was taken away by its steep streets that slope to almost 90 degree angle, beautiful lights and decorations all around the city, countless little coffee shops that lure you in with intoxicating smell of fresh pastries, magnificent Golden Gate Bridge – cross it and in quick 50 minute find yourself in the wine country where you can enjoy glass of some of the best chardonnay or cabernet. - San Francisco is a city of the world-class cuisine. Must tries while you’re here are abalone (a tasty variety of the mollusk being cultivated in the Bay Area), Dungeness crab and bay shrimp. - Finally, it’s a city where you can walk around all day and never get bored as there are so many colorful and diverse neighborhoods: Golden Gate Park, Chinatown, Union Square, the Italian North Beach, Fisherman’s Wharf, the Castro, Japantown, the Mission District.... - This time we stayed in a cute boutique hotel called The Marker near Union Square. To be honest I picked it because its décor was pink - and it turned out to be a great decision! We enjoyed our stay a lot! Highly recommend. - I’ve never been much in love with Northern California before. We’re already planning our trip back here. On the list: ride a cable car and visit Alcatraz in SF; go to Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks. Have you guys been in Northern California? What did you like the most?! . . . . #threecitiesonelife_travel#sanfrancisco#travel#california#bayarea#travelblogger#nycblogger#torontoblogger#parisblogger#travelbloggers#travelling#californiablogger#traveladdict#ilovetravel#travel#traveldeeper#worldplaces#igtravel#wanderlust#travelholic#travelgirl

Can u tell I’m on cloud.. wine🍷 ?! Nothing makes me happier 😀 than wine tasting especially when it’s in the Castle of Love... ❣️With more than 450 wineyards in Napa valley, my first choice fell onto the castle of love... (probably cuz I’ve always wanted to make a tattoo in a form of a heart or just say ‘love’ cuz it’s all the matters in life, right?!) 📍Castello di Amorosa - our 1st stop. 13th century mediaval Tuscan-style castle and winery. Truly an architectural masterpiece. As Dario Sattui (the owner) mentions the same love that went into building the Castello permeates the winemaking process ❤️+🍷.

Hello world👋 thé throwback to my casual Saturday 😌 or sporty Saturday I would say😂 ⠀⠀ My friend in Paris was moving out the apartment and the new one was on the 4th floor without the elevator, so imagine what 🏋️‍♀️ we had 💪🏻 ⠀⠀ Actually the topic of housing in Paris is a real pain 😓 the market is that much overwhelmed (even if it is incredibly expensive) that even if you have money, this is not a guarantee that you will have it.🤷‍♀️ few points to follow: 🔅 you have to have a monthly net salary 3 times higher than the rent price 🔅you have to have a French guarantor, who also have to have reasonable income 🔅 and even if you meet 2 points above, don not relax, after you will need to convince the owner/agent that you are that one perfect « locataire » because behind you, there are dozen of the same profiles for one apartment😓 ⠀⠀ I remember how I was looking for my first French home, the worst time ever 😓😓 and now it is been almost a year that I am looking to change and nothing 🤷‍♀️ but it is not about me to give up 💪🏻 ⠀⠀ But guys if one day you decide to move, do not hesitate, we are here to help and support 💕 ⠀⠀ Would you like to read about the best districts to live in Paris?😜 ⠀⠀ #paris#parisjetaime#parisienne#parismonamour#parismaville#parisianlife#girlboss#womeninbusiness#moschino#parisian#womenwhowork#toronto#newyork#nyc#big4#blogger#blogueuse#fashion#fashionblogger#travel#travelgram#travelblogger#lifestyle#lifestyleblogger#followforfollowback#followers #follow4followback#following

The 6ix, the T.dot, the Smoke Town, the Little York & of course 416. The ‘416’ is even tattooed on Drake’s body. Toronto has as many lively neighbourhoods as multiple nicknames. One moment u can be in vibrant china town, another second u can enjoy authentic pizza with Perroni in Little Italy.

Life in Paris, is almost how this guy on the light - upside down 🙌 Busy rush with the light smell of “patisserie” on the street, with so life enjoying French people who are in the continues move. Rather contradicting notions, however this is how they are 🤷‍♀️ I really do not know how they succeed to deal with the drinking wine and working hard, but they do🤔 Well it needs a lot efforts to live here, but once you caught “tu kifes” I wish that everyone can feel it🙏🏻 #womenwhowork#womeninbiz#womenintheworld#bosswoman#buildingbossladies#girlbosslife#paris#pariscityworld#topparisphoto#thisisparis#parisjetaime#visitparis#parisgram#visitfrance#parismonamour#wonderlustparis#paris_bigcity#parislife#topfrancephoto#hello_france#super_france#traversefrance#merveillesdefrance#bigfour#womeninfinance#femmesaupouvoir#femmesauboulot

New York is a city of million dreams and million lights. My favorite thing about this city is that it truly ‘never sleeps’. Public transportation is open 24/7, you can go dancing in Brooklyn till 9am and find food at 4am practically anywhere in the city! #newyork#newyorkfashionbloggers#careergoals#womeninbusiness#professionalwomen#womenhelpingwomen#girlbosslife#womeninbiz#womenintheworld#bosswoman#buildingbossladies#girlbosslife#officechic#officeootd#businessstyle#professional style #womeninfinance#businessprofessional#businessstyle#enterpreneurspritit#corporatelife#newyorklife#explorenewyork#girlboss#newyorkcity#newyorker#newyorkstyle

My game. My rules. ⠀⠀

My game. My rules. ⠀⠀ ☝🏼That’s how I would name the first chapter of our book😅🙆🏻‍♀️ ⠀⠀ The Canadian chapter of my life started when my first ticket to Toronto was booked on 9/11 the year after the attack. My guess is that the tickets to North America were cheaper for that day for the obvious reasons, but the discount was way too appealing... The month I spent here as a kid planted first seeds of the idea to moving to this country some time in the future. And at the age of 19 that “some time” has officially came. It came in the form of the message “accepted” into one of the best Canadian business schools, Schulich School of Business. The chances I could get in was close to nothing as the school takes 1 in 40 applicants. But here we r.. booking another flight to Canada.. just proves that impossible is nothing🤟🏼💪🏼🤙🏼 ⠀⠀ It was all rainbows and unicorns until the reality of “culture shock” hit along with the amount of what and how you need to study at the business school, people from different backgrounds you have to interact, new friends u have to make, and constant explanations why you have those double “i” in my name [Valeriia]. The adaptation was tough for several reasons. First, the language - I’ve been studying English since childhood, but it took me years here to master it and finally make jokes🤪. Second, home separation anxiety was unbearable. From Kyiv, my home, where everything is so familiar and easy to Toronto where u need to spend 2 hrs to get to the Uni. Third, 24/7 team projects, quizzes, midterms, finals and constant idea that u have to prove that you are smart and get in that 95 percentile so u can land those prestigious job offers on Bay Street - oufff😅 ⠀⠀ Those 4 yrs of schulich passed in a blink of an eye and gave me all the valuable technical tools to land the job in the big4. But most importantly, it made me realize that if I want smth, I’m the only one who will make it happen🕊

Paris🇫🇷 here you will see a lot of amazing views of Paris as well as nice spot advices, traditions and lifestyle 🤗 I want to share the moments I live through and to make you see with my eyes 👀 ⠀⠀ This view is very special for me because made on the first day of my story in #EYFrance which is full of ups and downs ,fighting and wining as well as loosing sometimes😓 the place where women show how powerful they are and that there is nothing impossible for a lady in the 21st century 👍 This place where i spend most of my life, more than 12 hours per day 😓 not super cool, but how it is🤷‍♀️ i never believed in rumors, especially about big 4, but once I tried I haverealized that this place a real machine of success, nocturnes and hard working people. This is the best school ever you can have, but are you ready to get through it? And the future, i would say that either you are born to work like that or you will suffer🤦🏼‍♀️ I didn’t decide yet, to which side I am belonging 😉 ⠀⠀ Heh, probably you will see here a lot of different unstructured information😂 but this is the purpose 😜 we show the life without a scenario 😌 #paris#girlboss#eyfrance#ukrainiangirl

Paris - city of my love, dreams, pain - city of my life. It’s been 2 years I have moved to the city of miracle and amazing views. Long story of explanations and reasons needs to follow, but one thing is for now - this is the city which turned my life for 180 degrees with its charming air full of spirit of freedom. My life might look like simple scenario for expat, however much more stands behind the story of life in Paris 🇫🇷 I invite you to enjoy the journey of life how it is, of real office work, business women and how to achieve doing everything simultaneously 🙏🏻 #womenwhowork#womeninbiz#womenintheworld#bosswoman#buildingbossladies#girlbosslife#paris#pariscityworld#topparisphoto#thisisparis#parisjetaime#visitparis#parisgram#visitfrance#parismonamour#wonderlustparis#paris_bigcity#parislife#topfrancephoto#hello_france#super_france#traversefrance#merveillesdefrance#bigfour#womeninfinance#femmesaupouvoir

Toronto. Financial District. The quite before the storm on Bay Street. The area where the testosterone levels are high and the ambitions are higher that could touch the sky.

You whether love New York or you hate it, there’s no in between. But if you do fall for it - that love story is forever. It’s charmes you with sky-reaching buildings and small coble brownstones, bright lights of Times Square and Broadway and small dimly lit speakeasies, modern museums and beautiful parks. New York is a city of endless possibilities; you are free to be who ever you want here and do whatever your heart desires. It’s truly a “city that never sleeps”. #newyork#newyorkfashionbloggers#careergoals#womeninbusiness#professionalwomen#womenhelpingwomen#girlbosslife#womeninbiz#womenintheworld#bosswoman#buildingbossladies#girlbosslife#officechic#officeootd#businessstyle#professional style #womeninfinance#businessprofessional#businessstyle#enterpreneurspritit#corporatelife#newyorklife#explorenewyork#girlboss#newyorkcity#newyorker#newyorkstyle
