Oh my… Birthday week of celebrating and being so overwhelmed and on the go, surrounded by so many friends ( and people in general ) on daily basis got to me… My energy is officially running low atm. 😀 I still have so many cool things and outings planned for this weekend and I’m totally set on taking Monday and Tuesday as my “pampering days”. 😀
Let’s start with the “champagne popping” announcement – I’M 29!! Happy birthday to me! Yeee!!! Now that we’re over with that egocentric crap, let me continue this post on a more meaningful note. I know that there were ( and will be ) many similar posts with thoughts on turning 29 around the net, this last blissful year of a “20-something” but I still wanted to write my own post with some reflections… No matter how many similarities there might be in these kind of posts, I think that everybody has lived different kind of life and therefore I find it that everybody has something to “add” of their own…
I’m a girl which never takes a break… I will always keep on going at all costs. Heck, sometimes I don’t even take a break to cry and have a proper “breakdown” moment, but I deal with everything on the go or by swiping it “under the carpet” until I can, at some point, deal with it.
I just ride, ride and ride, I succeed, I fail, I get disappointed or I get proud, about myself or about people which I encounter… But I feel that I never take a proper moment to just “be” and process everything that’s happened, good or bad, people which I’ve met, etc.
Good Saturday my dears! I’m a day late with my usual Friday roundup but I wanted to still put out a favourites post, so I’m sharing them on this Saturday morning and hoping that you’ll like it as much as my other “5 for Friday” posts. 🙂
This Wednesday shall start off with a yummy recipe in my “Gourmet moment” where I share my home cooked meals with you which will hopefully inspire you to try cooking and experimenting with different food at home. Cooking at home is therapeutic for me and I love to challenge myself and always try to either invent some new recipes or twist and adjust already tried recipes and make them even better. 🙂
I’m starting this Monday with a bit different post by introducing you to Happiness Boutique, an online destination for unique and accessible jewellery. Happiness boutique’s main aim is to bring you their two biggest inspirations: fashion and happiness in one place.
Good Sunday morning everybody! How are you doing? What are your plans for today? In case that you’re starting your day slowly and have some time to spare, I invite you to meet a new guest on my blog as part of my new section “Sunday cafe” ( read the previous post here ). Meet my lovely friend Rita, a fellow photographer, wonderful young woman with bursting positive energy and an addictive laughter. I call her a Hilary Duff’s twin sister. 😀
Hello Friday! I’m loving you already, because I’m in a big, thick need of a good and relaxing weekend. I do have to run quite a few errands because I’m having an important and very long Monday with two different photo shoots and settings, so a lot has yet to be done… BUT! I will do my best to have a chilled weekend. I felt like the past 1 and half months were so hectic and filled with so much on my schedule, all the time that I can’t even wrap my head around the fact that my birthday is in less than 2 weeks. Say what?!
As you might have already noticed, I love to cook at home and create new as well as re-create some of my all time favourite dishes. The recipe which I’ll share with you today is one of the ultimate favourites in my family and everybody loves it equally as much. I love to prepare it on Sunday, when I usually feel really lazy but I still want to cook something healthy, so this recipe then comes in as a perfect saviour since it doesn’t require much time spent by the stove and oven, but the outcome is always a super delicious one.
Kuten olet jo ehkä saattanut huomata. Minä rakastan ruoan laittamista kotona. Rakastan kehitellä uusia, kuin myös muuttaa jo valmiita ruoka annoksia. Resepti minkä jaan tänään teidän kanssanne on yksi perheeni suosikeista. Ja kaikki meidän perheessämme ovat siihen yhtä ihastuneita. Haluan yleensä valmistaa tämän ruoka annoksen Sunnuntaisin. Sillä se on yleensä se päivä jolloin tunnen itseni laiskaksi, mutta haluaisin silti valmistaa jotakin terveellistä ruokaa. Tämä annos on siihen tarkoitukseen täydellinen, sillä se ei vaadi paljon aikaa hellan ja uunin äärellä. Mutta lopputulos on silti todella herkullinen.
Stepping outside… Fresh, crisp Fall air hits my cheeks and the sunny, but cold rays of sunshine blindfold me for a moment as I start walking off into yet another day of 12-ish hours of breathing, living, moving, feeling, dreaming… Consciously, until I fall asleep and do all of that unconsciously. I believe that we never wake up, we’re always in the state of some kind of “Winter’s sleep”, just that our imagination runs wilder during the night as we’re sleeping. Continue Reading…
