The New Year 2020 has come! And I sincerely congratulate you, my dear friends! New Year's fireworks ceased to sound, and along with the magical dinging of chimes and the clinking of glasses, millions of our desires about where we want to be in the new year, where to work and what to learn, in what to succeed, what to realize, what to wear and who to be friends with, left to the universe. Someone’s dreams came true on New Year's Eve, when, opening the door to the New Year’s miracle, a fluffy kitten entered the house, and looking into each other’s eyes, it and its new female guardian realized that they once found what they had needed so desperately, and realized again that miracles only happen to those who believe in them. Do you remember it in Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll?
- “And what kind of sounds are over there?” - asked Alice.
“Ah, these are miracles,” the Cheshire Cat indifferently explained.
“And what are they doing there?” - the girl wondered.
“As expected,” the cat answered, yawning. – “They simply happen”.
And I wish you, our dear readers, that miracles and all the most beautiful things always have a place in your lives and the door is always open for them!
What else about our dreams? Of course, we had made a wish that the most incredible and interesting meetings would happen for our readers with the heroes on the pages of BABYER in the new year. So, already in the first issue of 2020, the popular singer and composer Dmitry Malikov revealed how he is meeting his first real anniversary, as well as the brightest moments of his life; designer Evgenia Kim, beloved by all young fashionistas, shared the secrets of her brand's success; artist Kira Panina revealed the secret of how she manages to create masterpieces that fill human hearts with good and light; the famous TV presenter and model Assol Vasilyeva shared with us the joy of an upcoming miracle in her life, and the main character of the issue, model Anastasiya Knyazeva, stated that, despite a great success, she does not dream of a modeling career at all.
All the most amazing, with love for you, in this warm room, in the midst of winter.
Interestingly, it seems to me alone that the summer flew too fast? It seems that the wave of the cote d'azur is about to sweep me again, and I will conquer it again and again on my brand new Jet, and the gentle sun and oyster bar will again make my day! Oh no! The youngest son wakes me with a joyful cry: “Mom! Get up! Today is Saturday and we are going for a backpack with notebooks ”.
Real enthusiastic emotions of a first-grader child inevitably sets in. And he will certainly be full of new discoveries and victories, because we will certainly learn everything new and interesting together. Win at olympiads and sports competitions, create new models and enchantingly present them. Children need help! But not doing all the work for them and interfering in each task received, but maintaining their interest in the desire to move forward, creating comfortable conditions for this movement and endlessly believing in them despite any turns.
In our autumn issue, we tried to open the door to the successful future of our children, help them in mastering new knowledge, manifesting themselves, as well as preserving their strength and increasing their unique resources on the way to great results. Finishing work on this issue, I realized that in the melancholy mood of the fall, I will definitely look for positive moments, and the motivation for new achievements in these very achievements.
Thanks to the heroes of our issue Denis Klyaver @denisklyaver, Alena Savchenko @ aljonasavchenko, Maria Pogrebnyak @mariapoga and Yulia Selivanovskaya @selivanovskaya_ for sharing with us the secrets of their success, which we will take as vitamins for the implementation of everything that was planned in the new labor race. Special thanks to our young heroine Sofia Lantsova, a strong and purposeful athlete, whose goals and the path to their subjugation undoubtedly inspire herself and her ability to use her virtues always for something more!
I congratulate all of us on the beginning of the new school year and wish that both parents and children find something new, learn more about the most important and reach the maximum of their abilities!
Our dear and beloved readers!
Traditionally, our summer edition is devoted to a family. Family is where our path begins from and a perfect platform for shaping our aspirations, leading to successful achievement of the goals we set. Formation of a full-fledged personality, adoption and upbringing of our own “I”, determination of personal moral values does not occur without this simple, short word, but the best institution and the most precious treasure in the life of each of us. Unfortunately, modern trends, as well as the sad statistics of terminated marriages, do not contribute to the preservation of family values and traditions today. But it is unlikely that those who do not have a family and who do not believe in it will be successful in the future, like the ones who do not appreciate their relatives can become happy. The ones not cherishing their past have no future!
I am grateful to all our famous, honored and endlessly talented people - the participants of our special photo project Family Album - Edwin and Adrienne Marton, Dmitry and Elena Malikov, Denis and Natalia Maydanov, Stas and Inna Mikhailov, Anastasia Busygina and Andrey Abramov, Pavel and Maria Pogrebnyak, Natalya Petlyakova and Michael Fram, Mikhail and Larisa Policemaiko for letting us approach them so close and allowing us to look into the very depths of their hearts. I am grateful to all the heroes of our edition, to a wonderful and very romantic couple of Yuri and Inna Zhirkov @yuryzhirkov and @innazhirkova, to a model and designer Svetlana Goreva @lana.turok, to a shoe designer Alexander Siradekian, to a Film Director and Screenwriter Alexey Popogrebsky for their sincerity, kindness and love that charged this bright summer edition and for the fact that all these people serve as a worthy example for the younger generations.
This issue is about the long-awaited summer and unforgettable travels, about where memories live and what we are strong in. I intended to create it truly kind and somehow unifying all of us. In my view, my team coped with it ...
All our dear friends!
According to the statistics, today in Russia there are 2-3% of highly gifted children out of the total number of children in our country and 25% of talented children in various fields. It is nice to see that our government and commercial organizations support their achievements and create wide opportunities for their development and promotion. Talented children are undoubtedly not only the joy and pride of their parents, but also the real treasure of the nation, its wealth and our happy future.
Over the past month, our magazine has become an information partner of several serious awards in the field of children's achievements, the great merit of which is, of course, the merit of the parents of such children, who give all their strength and time for their full development. It does not matter at all where a child showed himself: in mathematics, physics, astronomy, music, painting or sports. The important thing is that his or her parents paved the way to a great future and supported all initiatives, and the child confidently goes to the set goal and every day proves it with good performance. Such particular attitude to the adored work our hero has - a bright, cheerful, charismatic guy, at his eleven, already a true artist - Arthur Rainis @arturrainis.
Many of our adult characters remember their childhood in the pages of our magazine. It was different for everyone, but they all once took a step more and showed patience an hour longer than others, and today we are proud of their great success. Today, they themselves support various children's projects and do not stand aside from their fates. Thanks to the Honored Artist of the Russian Federation Nikas Safronov @ safronov_nikas for the sincerity and a great contribution to the support of children; to Igor Gulyaev, a genius designer @ igorgulyaev for his frankness, valuable advice and a worthy example of his attitude to the profession and to his parents for all of our young people today; a famous Russian athlete, an international-class master of sports Maria Komissarova @chaadaeva_maria for a vivid example of a willpower, love of life, faith in the best and selflessness; and an incredibly charming, talented actress, producer Anna Peskova @ anna.peskova - for revealing her secrets of happiness and the willingness to share it with all of us.
Happiness is children! Love your children, support them and take care of them! And believe me, they will definitely multiply return your investments in them!
Let me greet you, our dear readers!
The calendar spring has officially begun. And despite snow in some places on the streets, the spring mood has already settled somewhere in the depths of our souls frozen over the winter. Internally, we are standing on the threshold of something infinitely perfect. Of course, an acute lack of sunlight still does not improve the mood, but itself the process of waiting for the best and willingness to activate all vital processes in our body makes us much more pleasant and warmer.
Spring is the time when mice and men generate on Earth, and therefore we are all happy to build the most ambitious plans and open up to everything new and amazing. In the rhythm of the awakening dance, we forget that we the day mood for ourselves, because the melodious singing of birds is already heard outside the window and the alluring scent of blooming flowers surrounds us. For the magical mood – exactly what we need!
This spring mood appears as soon as you start removing the cover of the spring issue in mid winter. It's cold outside, while we have bright colors, blooming roses and sincere, lively emotions of our heroine – a young figure skating star Sofia Akatyeva @akatyevasofya, who is open to meet with a dream and involuntarily plunges us all into this magical state.
And, of course, all our heroes: the great Russian couturier Valentin Yudashkin @vyudashkin, the Honored Artist of Russia Dmitry Slepushkin, an always positive TV presenter Anastasia Tregubova @atregubova and a unique and very charismatic actress Olga Pavlovets @olga_pavlovets_real, have undoubtedly opened the way to this spring. Energy, inspiration, love and dreams - this is what our heroes and authors enriched this issue with for you!
Winter. The most magical and beautiful season, when the frost draws its intricate patterns on the windows of houses, a fluffy white snow obscures the roads, and ice figures on the streets seem to welcome us to a fairy tale. In a fairy tale, to some extent means, back in childhood, when you can sincerely rejoice at simple things and invent a variety of stories. On long winter evenings, you can comfortably sit down by a fireplace, turn over pages of the old family photo album or just read wonderful tales by the most romantic writer Ernst Hoffmann together with a cup of fragrant tea with gingerbreads. Winter seems to be meant to warm each other in cold and frost with love and kind hearts. It is proper time to dream and fully surrender to your dreams.
We dream that our communication with you, our dear readers, will continue and become even more amazing and necessarily have a feedback. In the New Year - in a new format and with new projects, which we will certainly reveal to you on the pages of our magazine, and in which we will take part together. I want to say THANK YOU to all my team who worked on this number, to the great contemporary musician Edwin Marton @edvinmarton, the unique expert of the fashion world Alla Konstantinovna Verber @verberalla and a wonderful actress who always impresses us Alyona Falaleyeva @alyona_falaleeva for the opportunity to meet and have a pleasant talk. Separate THANKS to our young heroine, actress Aurika Stepanenko @ssanetka for sharing her dreams with us and once again showing an example for all those wishing to achieve a great success in their adored professions. Dreams come true if you believe in them! Success comes to those who wait for it!
