#daysoffwithkeek ft LA 

I have mixed emotions about being home. All the fun in the sun this weekend was one for the books! Los Angels was hit with a heat wave and we were loving it! I think this was the first time in years that I was able to actually enjoy swimming for more than 5 minutes. Tehehe. We spent all day swimming, tanning & eating LEMONADE. Naturally. God bless whoever planted that devine restaurant walking distance from Manhattan beach CA. Enjoyyy ~

SMF ✈️ SEA
Daysoffwithkeek ft Seattle
Go while you’re young… Go while you have no responsibilities. While youre single. Travel, as often as you can. If no one can go, go alone. Explore, wander, connect, get lost in new places. Meet new people, catch up with old ones.
I’m always itching to escape my current resting place. I’m never content. I always want more. I wanna do it all, see it all, experience everything and anything. I’m constantly running on this idea that life is short and I’m wasting my youth. I have this fear that I’ll wake up when I’m 50 and realize that I waste my golden years being afraid of being alone. Afraid of leaving the comforts of home. Stuck working that 9-5 office job while everything I want is outside of comfort.
A few years back I vowed that I’d live my life to its fullest when my brother passed away in 2013 and I’m on a mission. To get the most of life. To travel more. Love more. Judge less. Spread kindness and love everywhere I go.
I urge you to save money. Plan. Explore. Seek. Wander. Wing it. Chase your passions. Chase dreams. Even the unrealistic ones. Reach destinations. Get out of your comfort zone and experience the world.
Im starting my quest off small! We hit Seattle this last weekend and then drove down to Spokane WA for my cousins dream wedding in the forest. ( Teehee all this meant was getting to dress up in all my new dresses and cute rompers) 🙂 Got a little taste of something new and learning that traveling, flighing alone and figuring out new locations isn’t as complicated as I thought it would be!
Naturally we started with breakfast and made our way to some of the cutest coffee shops and waffle houses! This trip was one for the books! Hope you enjoy all the little flicks from my adventure.

Dear Justin Bieber,

As a matter of fact, I will go and love myself.

In a world full of narcissist I still still can’t believe how many of us struggle with insecurity and self love. We are a generation that compares, evaluates and judges ourselves with great scrutiny. But if I were to be completely honest i’d admit to the fact that a lot of times I catch myself playing God. I run my own show. I am my number one priority, self centered, and conceited. You are on days off with Keek featuring everyone else. But if I love myself so damn much why am I so empty? And why do I look up to you for self worth and approval?

I wake up feeling empty. You know that disgusting feeling you get when you’re in trouble? That feeling deep in the pit of your stomach. Imagine that feeling. Every morning @7 am. I close my eyes and attempt to shake these feelings. They are not relevant. “I am loved by the king of all kings”. I repeat this several times. These feelings are heavy. They weigh me down. I am stuck paralyzed in my bed. Again I close my eyes and pray and I repeat, “I am loved by the king of all kings”, his love is enough. I am enough.

You’re talking but I can’t hear a word you’re saying. Mostly because I’m thinking about myself. The mind is beautiful but deadly, and I am drowning in a sea of my own thoughts. Thoughts that consume me and take me to the darkest and ugliest places. My mind is never at ease. You can argue the fact that this is all just in my head, and Id agree. It is. But thats the worst part. Its all in my head, and there is no escaping my mind.

No one plans to find themselves in this situation. I did not plot to hand my identity over to anyone. But when I look back and trace all of the steps I took that led me here. I find that, that’s exactly what I did. I just didn’t know at the time how much breaking up with someone would impact me. I made him too big and God too small. I look around and find all of my self worth and value in other people. I am nothing without your approval. I have no opinions. No thoughts of my own. I am a people pleasing cookie cutter. Lost and insecure.

I recall feeling so lost. As if the world somehow was falling apart and I was slipping into the cracks of darkness. Losing myself. The thought of being vulnerable still makes me cringe. I was caught in a web of his thoughts and opinions. I didn’t even have time to realize that I had a self love problem until I was alone. Being alone made me question everything I once believed and stood for. I realiz now that I had no voice. I honored and valued things that I didn’t even believe in. I accepted and followed guidelines just because the person who I Idolized followed them. I was nothing without the confidence that he gave me. Without him I am lost. Worthless.

Self love and confidence isn’t taught or encouraged enough, if even at all. And If you’re anything like me you’re always waiting for the next step. Never satisfied or content with the here and now. Always thinking “if only”‘then I’d be happy, or “When this finally happens” I’ll be content. But the truth is… If You don’t love yourself now. You won’t love yourself then. I never imagined loving myself to be this challenging. Most times I find this journey to be so painful and lonely, but I am thankful for this has forced on a journey to trust God with everything. To look beyond my physical self and focus on what is eternal. I am still learning. Still waiting for freedom, trusting Gods timing.

Our thoughts are so powerful. We are what we repeatedly do. If you repeatedly think negative thoughts about yourself you are only going to find yourself falling deeper and deeper in self hate and insecurity. Think positive and beautiful thoughts! Your identity is not in your boyfriend, husband, friends or family. Your identity is in Jesus who is never changing! Find comfort in that alone.

You are coming home, to yourself. Enjoy the journey.

Xoxo Keek 🍒

Everyday should be Mother’s Day.

Although most of my blog posts are usually about me getting out of town and running away from my problems. This one is in particular is Keek ft @themanuylovshouse. For the past week I have been spending an enormous amount of time with my sister @missbrunetka and my niece Domnika (Aka Kotya), who is literally the cutest baby I’ve ever seen!! Please do not fight me on this one.


For most of you who know me on a personal level, you already know that @mr_manulov aka (Larry berry aka my sister’s husband) and @missbrunetka are my go to’s, my right hand(s). They have literally been there for me since day one. Supporting, feeding, housing me, helping me through my break ups, hangups, trials, and tribulations. They are the most selfless, kind, and genuinely beautiful human beings that I’ve ever encountered. And I’m so damn lucky to have them. Long story short if you’ve ever done me wrong, just know my sister and her husband know about it and they don’t like you.


PC: @jennywennypennypants http://jennywennypennypants.com

So…while @mr_manulov is out of town on “business” LOL just kidding he’s out in Ethiopia scouting for his mission trip for future surgeries with his team. If you’re interested in further knowledge of his team and there mission visit

http://www.facesoftomorrow.org


  
Larrys out of town… So I figured this is the perfect opportunity to come over and spend more time with Kotya🐱 ( which is kitty in Russian)  Lets just say I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I fantasized this whole week to be filled with nothing but giggles and cuddles topped off with sleeping in and seizing the week that I requested off. I SIGNED UP FOR THIS.


My fantasy quickly turned into a week of crying, screaming, changing diapers, and catering to Domnikas every need and complaint. I’m not even going to mention how many times she threw up on me. It was exhausting. I was anxious, stressed, sleep deprived and cranky. Don’t get me wrong, watching my sister take care of her daughter is one of the most beautiful and selfless thing I’ve ever seen. But I never realized what being a mom really meant.


This honestly got me thinking so much about my own mom and all of the times I have taken her for granted. LOL I told myself I wouldn’t cry. But I’m just having one of those days. Having my mom by my side this morning, just talking and listening to sermons reminding me of how valued and loved I really am. No one will ever care about you as much as your mom cares about you. Happy for my happiness. Sad for my sadness. Now that’s what real love looks like.


Current mood: In bed, rolled up in a ball trying not to cry. Lol. My mother is my heart. Growing up with her was a different story. She was the enemy, someone who I had to lie and hide things from. It wasn’t until I fully grew up and faced struggles/heart aches of my own that I realized how much my mom did for me all those years & still does to this day. We all have flaws and I am by no means saying that my mom is perfect or raised me perfectly, but she did the best she could with what she had. My mom is amazing, wonderful and loving. Being a mom is probably the hardest BUT most rewarding job. YES. JOB! Maybe job isn’t even the right title, Because you never clock out. Maybe it should be considered a lifestyle or (a freaking sacrifice.)  Your kids will outgrow your arms, but never your heart. LOL this coming from a 23 year old who is getting supported by both of her parents and still living under there roof. (oops) no shame whatsoever.


The long sleepless nights and hectic days. It’s exhausting. Today was a bittersweet morning, as we sipped our coffee and enjoyed each others company. I was reminded to values and love my mama. My emotions got the best of me and I found myself with both arms wrapped around her sweet, soft neck. I felt tears slowly rolling down both side of my rosy pink cheeks. In that moment I was reminded of just how much she does for me. From the never ending prayers,loads of perfectly folded clean laundry and hot prepped meals on the daily. Listening to all of my sob stories and genuinely being interested in my everyday life. MOM! you are a superhero, and to this day I still don’t know how you did it. Raising us 5 crazy kids, working a full time job and still keeping the house in order. I hope you remember to treat your mama right. Hug her , kiss her. Surprise her with flower or her favorite treat. {etc} But above all Materialist things. Respect, honor, and listen to her. Because mama knows best.


‬ “You must honor and respect your father and your mother. Do this so that you will have a full life in the land that the Lord your God gives you.”

‭‭Exodus‬ ‭20:12‬ ‭ERV‬‬


Mother dearest. At age 18.  Most likely already had her whole life figured out. 

In loving Memory of Andre Petkov/FOREN DRE

The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind. I remember thinking this would never happen to my family. People die everyday. It’s just a part of life. I hate talking about my brothers death… If you have never experienced the loss of someone you love, this blog post Isn’t for you. I don’t expect you to relate or understand. There is no quick fix, no remedy, there is nothing you can say or do to fill the void. It is a constant ache in your heart that consumes your whole entire body. It is a chronic pain that doesn’t subside.

Losing my brother was like losing a part of me. All of our childhood memories fading into nothing. Some days I wonder if you were even here. How can someone be here one day and gone the next. Did you even exist? I could write my thoughts off as crazy. Maybe I was crazy. Maybe you never existed. Maybe I thought you up in my head a long time ago. It’s like waking up from a dream, and not knowing what was reality and what wasn’t. I close my eyes just to meet yours in my thoughts and memories. I see sweet brown eyes smiling back at me.

In a room full of people my eyes still search for you. Flashbacks of you still linger to this day. I miss you so much. But the world does not stop and wait for you to be okay. It waits for no one. We are expected to get back to work and life as if nothing happened. I can’t believe it’s been three years already Dre. I feel like you’re missing everything. It’s not fair. Life’s not fair. So much has changed since we last spoke. Alena had a baby. Remember how we’d always joke about how Bella (the dog) was our only niece? lol. I know you would have been the best uncle.

Your absence alone shattered our whole family. I’ve never felt so broken. So confused. I’ve never prayed so hard. Praying for God to turn back the hands of time. If only we talked the night before. The what if’s and what could have been. But nothing was more painful than listening to all of the “christian’s” comments and judgemental remarks. I think that was my breaking point. You were gone. Nothing and no one could hurt you anymore. And the people who you’d expect to give you the most support did the complete opposite. Instead it was our family who had to bear your loss and as if our world wasn’t already falling apart we had deal wolves in sheeps clothing. There words held so much power.

” If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless. James 1:26 “

You were the most amazing and talented artist. Kind hearted and so smart. You dreamed without borders. Young and reckless. Enjoying everyday. You taught me so many important things. Losing you changed my perspective on everything. I began to live more fully, love more deeply. Appreciate and value everyone who was in my life. I became more accepting and forgiving. It opened my eyes to so many things I was doing wrong as a christian. You always looked out for the underdog. A friend to everyone. I miss your big bear hugs that used to make me feel so small. All 6 feet and 3 inches wrapped around me. Or how you’d lay in my bed and ask me to braid your hair lol. Never did end up giving you those cornrows you always wanted. LOL. I miss coming home and finding you in my room with my guitar in your arms, playing the only three chords you could remember after two years of guitar lessons lol. I miss everything about you. The good and the bad. You are so dearly missed Andre. Rest in paradise big brother. Until we meet again.

#daysoffwithkeek sponsored by Dr. Phen

Welcome back to another blog post by Kristina with no CH because CH’s are ew. If you’ve never watch Jimmy Fallon’s late night tv show “EW” go watch it now. (http://youtu.be/sIhU3mQTp1U) This weekend was full of adventure and excitement as we made our way down to Long beach CA. I have worked at the same dental office for 6 years now and my loyalty is finally starting to pay off. My New Years resolution was to say yes to every adventure and opportunity that I was presented with, so when my boss offered to take us on a cruise I obviously said yes. Free trip? I mean why not? Not only was this my first cruise but the fact that it was paid and sponsored by my Chinese step dad Chris (EW!) I almost felt obligated to go. We woke up at the butt crack of dawn. And when I say butt crack. I mean 3 freaking am and drove down to LA. The drive was dreadful. Can I get a amen for anyone who’s ever tried to sleep in the car for a long road trip? Or If you’ve ever woken up with not one, but two dead legs that have fallen asleep on you lol. We boarded and settled into our cute little cabins and made our way out to the deck to explore. We stayed up and caught the late night comedy shows and Broadway theater which was full of laughs, music, good food and even better company. The next day we arrived at Ensenada Mexico. First stop zip-lining! I felt like I was on one of those crazy family survival shows lol. Running around and climbing through tunnels and crossing shaky bridges to arrive at the next zip line. Definitely worth every penny. (And by every penny I mean every penny of Dr.Phen’s money) We hit the beach and market place next. Visiting the famous blow hole “La Bufadora” and indulging in $1 tacos + fresh coconut juice. Topped the night off at a local beach and headed back to the ship. This was most likely my first and last cruise experience. It was amazing don’t get me wrong. Everyone is catering to you, feeding and cleaning up after you. Low key received the royal treatment. But I had boat fever, I felt trapped. Being stuck on the ship for 3-4 days was a bit overboard. Pun intended. I’ve learned that it’s not about where you go, it’s who you’re with. I was visiting new places, enjoying the company of my amazing coworkers who I love dearly. But i missed my family/friends. But mostly my mom, who is my biggest fan and supporter. Community and family is so important. Where you invest your heart, you invest your life. I’m over here driving home, tearing up while  writing this blog post. lol. I know pa-the-tic. Spending time away from the people I love most always gets me like this. It was a bitter sweet reminder of how loved, blessed and lucky I am to have so many people who genuinely care, love, and support me. It’s been real Mexico, hate to see you go but love to watch you leave 😜

Social media

“Comparison is a thief of joy.”-Theodore Roosevelt, and social media is not always what it appears to be. This past weekend was Valentine’s Day. And every year its the same. You’re either the girl who’s boasting about the flowers and chocolate her boy friend got her vs the forever alone posts about how you’re a strong independent woman who can buy her own stupid life size teddy bear (what the balls are you going to do with that bear anyways) and binge eat 3 whole boxes of chocolates as you troll on everyone else’s posts. Little did you know the real holiday is February 15th when all of the chocolate is 50% off. Ive definitely been both of those girls once or twice in my life. But the older I get the more I realize how these stupid materialistic things don’t even matter. People only post what they want you to see, and you’ll only know as much as I want you to know. We are constantly on our phones/computers lurking and envying what someone else is doing or what someone else has. CREATE YOUR OWN HAPPINESS. I’m constantly getting direct messages/comments/text messages to be invited on my next adventure. I don’t mind this at all, quiet honestly I’m flattered. I just don’t understand why we are all so obsessed about what everyone else is doing. I’M GUILTY OF THIS TOO. I constantly find myself envying people over social media. Obviously I’m doing the same thing you’re doing. I’m only posting the good parts of my life for everyone to see. But the truth is, I don’t think anyone has it made. No one is living the perfect life they present on social media. I no longer envy people.  I love adventures and exploring new places but I’m still running from God knows what and God knows who. Doing everything I can to fill the voids. Constantly surrounding myself with new places and people. Self-curing my brokenness, my past, my pain, replacing the people who aren’t here anymore. We’re all in the pursuit of happiness and YES you are entitled to there own opinion on what that is going to look like. But please stop trying so hard to be happy. Be content with what you have and where you are at. And if you’re not happy with what you have or where you’re at, CHANGE IT! MOVE! You are not stuck. You are capable of so much more than you think. You can do and have whatever you want. WHAT DO YOU WANT? Decide what you want and after you’ve decided, do everything in your power to find your resting place. I have decided to create my own path, I’m building a life that I don’t want a vacation from. I have surrounded myself with people who love me, encourage me and support my decisions, even if they don’t always agree with them. Community is so important!!! I encourage you to find your anchors, invest in people. And PLEASE Stop comparing your beginning to someone’s end.

Proverbs 27: 17 “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”

Proverbs 17:17 “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity.”

Proverbs 18:24There are ‘friends’ who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother.

1 Corinthians 15:33 “Do not be deceived: Bad company corrupts good morals.”

 

A big shout out thanks to my gem of a sister, Alena Manuylov aka @missbrunetka for her unconditional love, support, encouragement, advice. Thank you for editing my blog post, pushing me to educate and better myself, and of course dressing and styling me since 1992.

My best friend Jenny Yarmoluk, who has encouraged and uplifted me in the most graceful and beautiful ways, her gentle spirit, friendship, encouragement, inspiration, photos and most importantly her love.

My best friend Dana Good for her free of charge therapy sessions, romantic dates, big golden heart, for always mentoring me, her life advice and amazing English grammar/editing. Thank you for believing and dreaming with me.

My cousin Nelli Beyts AKA miss stah-hur-skiy, for her theories, ideas, support, confidence in me, thank you for enriching my life and blog post /amazing editing skills. love you.

 XoXo- Keek
 Weekends are for adventures! Enjoy flicks from our day trip to Davenport ,CA.

Just enjoy the trees.

“It’s messing people up, this social pressure to ‘find your passion’ and ‘know what it is you want to do.’ It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as both small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people there is no realization, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purpose. This isn’t sad, it’s just the way things are. Stop trying to find the forest and just enjoy the trees!” Today I woke up way before my 7:30 alarm clock rang, to which I usually respond to by laying around until 8:30 and then sprinting out of bed and attempt to arrive to work at 9:00 am. (Dental office/RDA). Luckily my job is literally 4 minutes from my house. This morning was different. As I layed in my twin size bed Starring at the ceiling I could feel my heart beating fast, and my mind racing. I couldn’t sleep, I was anxious, worried, I was afraid. Its February now, that means in three months I’ll be 24. The big two four. These numbers terrify me. Not because I’m afraid of growing old, but because I feel like I’m so behind. I have this constant fear that I’m in a race and I cant keep up. I feel like everyone my age has it figured out. Everyone in my circle has found something and someone that they are pursuing, while I’m over here like ” hey mom look what I drew” (LOL you are my human if you got this reference). 99.9 % of my friends are graduating, married, pregnant, or getting married/ pregnant. I’m in a season of singleness and waiting. Which is AMAZING. Don’t get me wrong, I am so grateful that I have been saved from past relationships and screw ups, but thugs get lonely too. Also… I DON’T KNOW WHAT I WANT. It’s not that simple. Lol. I don’t know what I’m passionate about. I don’t know what I want yet. We’re always waiting for the next best thing. If you’re single you’re waiting to get into relationship. If you’re in a relationship you’re waiting to get married. If you’re married you’re waiting to have kids. If you’re pregnant you’re waiting to have the baby. And when you have your baby, you’re waiting for the baby to grow up. When are we going to stop and enjoy the journey? I never saw myself as someone who needed control until my life fell apart. Losing all security in the future that I painted for myself was the most devastating feeling I’ve ever felt. And that’s when the control issues began. Trying to control anything and everything I could. Starting with my weight, my diet/body, job, people. I just wanted to have power and authority over something. Why are we so afraid of not having control? Its exhausting, constantly trying to keep up with everyone. I took a deep breath, prayed, and asked God to free me from my anxious heart. I opened my bible app and this verse was the verse of the day. “Humble yourselves, then, under God’s mighty hand, so that he will lift you up in his own good time.  Leave all your worries with him, because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:6-7” Immediate relief entered my heart like a rushing river, my heart beat slowed down, and my mind was at ease. I believe that God is interested in every part of my life. He hears all that I am worried and anxious about and he will not leave me or forsake me. He just wants me to trust him. God is SO good, even in my brokenness. So take your own path. Enjoy every moment. Be present. Disconnect from social media once in a while. Meditate. Pray. Be in the here and the now. Not knowing what the future holds terrifies me, but I’ve decided to stop looking for the forest, I’m just enjoying the trees.

-XOXO Keek♥

“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.” Psalm 56:3

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34

“Tell everyone who is discouraged, Be strong and don’t be afraid! God is coming to your rescue…” Isaiah 35:43. 

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-713.

“Do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear.  Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.  Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!  Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?  Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?” Luke 12;22-26.

This is a little recap of our trip over the weekend to Big Sur CA! (If you have not taken the time to visit, GO!)  Seriously lucked out with the perfect weather+ zero signs of traffic +some of my favorite humans. Enjoy the photos. Some taken my yours truly, Lenna Kay @lennakay and of course amazing wizard photography by @jennywennypennypants
