Hi there! My name is Irina and this little blog of mine is a manifestation of my life and my sudden willingness to chronicle it.

At 28 years old I can proudly say that I am far from figuring it all out. Why be proud, you may ask? Because I am loving every single second of my journey – the good, the crazy, the horrific, and yes even the ugly of it all. You can read my full story by clicking on…me!…below:

My Story

This is a blog that documents my life in its rawest, purest form. I take pride in my accomplishments, successes, failures, and even my guilty pleasures. My promise to you is to remain true to myself and honest with everyone around me.

Just a warning- you will see an excess of…




wine drinking

cat lovin’


pink & shiny

New York

New York

mixed in with some occasional whining, sadness, and anger. After all, I am human!

I invite you to join me! We are all meant to live, laugh, and love together. I’m always here for you all and I welcome emails at irina (at) missirina (dot) com

♥ Irina

    So I just found your blog and I love it! Have you ever had actual chocolate tea??? It is by Numi Tea and almost impossible to find except at Whole Foods and Wegmans. But if you see it you should pick it up! Life changing!

    I just stumbled upon your blog and fell in love with the title. There is always room for chocolate and tea indeed.
    I, too, am studying engineering 🙂 What type of engineering did you do? I also relapsed into unhealthy eating behaviour during my second year (part stress, part unhealthy history with food), but am slowly regaining my strength, health, and passion for math and physics once more!
    What are you up to now, post-university?
    <3 Can't wait to read more!
