She describes herself as an ordinary Russian girl from Minneapolis. I beg to differ. She is not an ordinary girl, she is a beautiful and talented Russian girl from Minneapolis who
Loves thrifting, refashioning, beauty, fashion, and DIY projects
Her name is Zhenya (pronounced like Kenya with a /ZH/)
She drinks cheap “gas station” coffee
Wears other people’s hand me downs
Changes diapers for a job
She was born and raised in Russia
Lives in Minneapolis
She also has a wicked sense of humor, wardrobe that has enough clothes to wear for 3 months without doing laundry, and a caring heart.
I am always so amazed at the things she finds at her local thrift stores. Many times she can wear them as is, but often she will refashion to make it work and share the tutorial with us.
Check out her cute peplum refashion tutorial.

Here’s her total garage sale score:
A one of a kind Italian coat for one dollar. Yes, you heard that right, one dollar!!!
And that’s not all, oh no, that’s not all! Being Zhenya is filled with refashions, DIY’s, thrifting scores, beauty tips, giveaways, and much, much more.
