Let me introduce our second article for Riga TechGirls:
You add a lot of value when working in technology field – an interview with Valerija Makijenko by Evita Lune. Editing and photography by Veronika Suhareva.
Today I visited Infogr.am office in Old Town Riga for our Riga TechGirls team meet-up.
Just look at this amazing view from the balcony!
Also wanted to say that it’s such an inspiration to work in a community with such amazing people, with whom you share the vision and want to inspire and motivate other girls and women to educate themselves in IT and maybe even step into technology fields. Most important, women should be brave, motivated, curious, and ready to do something new and awesome!
If this seems close to you and your vision, you can find more information about our community, events and workshops on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Cheers!
Eau de Gaga is my most favorite perfume in the whole world ❤ I am sooo addicted that it’s already mine third bottle since it has been launched. I even was hysterically searching for a place to buy new when my first one suddenly ended up before a date, as I can’t imagine myself without this aroma😂#girlproblems
Speaking of perfume in general, I don’t like “girlish” aroma. I prefer heavy scents, something reminding of whiskey and cigarettes, of black suits and leather boots.
And what is your favorite perfume or scent?
Finally received photographs from Ju&Max Wedding ❤
As I already had a blog post about this lovely day, I decided to dedicate this mainly photographic post to my look for the wedding. In a nutshell, the idea was to create the look close to my ideal bride’s appearance. You know, I’m not an ordinary girl and I need everything to be creative, original and stylish as much as possible 😀 I will not share my dream dress here – who knows, maybe my future husband is reading this blog entry right now, but it’s a bad luck for a groom to see the wedding dress before the Big day 😀
So, let me present you Nirika the bridesmaid:

By the way, this is my first September since 2000 when I do not need to go to school or university or any courses!! Still cannot believe it 😀
To celebrate this – a photograph from my very first day of school with a photograph of me starting my Master studies.
May the Force be with all of you in your studies! Be brave and motivated!
THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE HAPPEN UNEXPECTEDLY
And this, kids, is how I met Red Hot Chili Peppers:
A month ago I was walking home from my work-related meeting. On my way I decided to walk past a hotel in which, as I saw from social media a day before, stayed legendary Red Hot Chili Peppers. I was simply walking, listening to By The Way in my earphones, I didn’t have any make-up on my face, I even had a run in my tights! I had no piece of paper or a pen with me to ask for an autograph. As I reached the hotel I noticed three big black cars near it, as well as a trio waiting for RHCP. I without any hesitation asked one guy if he has an extra paper to share with me and another if he can owe me a pen. Several minutes later I understood that it was a right decision to pass this place by, as Chad Smith – the drummer – went outside. He was extremely friendly and said that he likes my Gustav Klimt IPhone case. I was just standing there completely shocked 😀 Like, I was simply going home, and here is a guy from RHCP and he even speaks to me, like how can it be possible?!
So, my big evening plans – to go home, take a bath, do makeup, properly dress up, have a dinner, and slowly go downtown to meet my friends, and, most important, to buy a ticket to the show (due to several circumstances I was waiting for the last day to buy it) – were ruined. But, wait for it, it was legendary!
So proud to share our first article for Riga TechGirls!
