Look who’s writing?! 🙂 This Friday, 2.12. looks like a good day to start getting back to my usual 3-4 times a week posting. I’m a writer and content producer but I feel like I haven’t been writing or producing as much as I would have wanted throughout the month of November… I had quite a challenging and transitional month, so that has been the reason for lack of writing, but I’m happy to be true to myself and never publish anything I don’t stand 100% behind. Everything I write, do, produce needs to be real, honest and satisfactory to my standards, so that I can feel comfortable in publishing it to you – my audience.
For some reason, the past week I’ve come across two big contrasts in people’s personalities: the kindness, humbleness as well as pretentiousness, egoism and no compassion for others. My brain and soul are of such kind which never stop thinking, feeling, wondering and live through everything 100%, so the processing of some people and situations might take a while for me… This time of the year, just a little bit before Christmas is when I’m more than ever sensitive to cold, be it from the weather or from the people’s personalities, both get to me strongly.
Good Wednesday morning everybody! Couple of days ago, I have spent a lovely afternoon with my brother in my own city. The weather has been so wonderful, the sun was shining, air was crispy and refreshing, everything around me looked and felt magical… Oh, yes, it was a true “soul food” couple of hours.
Some years ago, I had this internal fight with myself that I have to do everything perfectly, that I need to be perfect and that only when these two are “all perfect”, I’ll get to where I want to be in life and I’ll get what I want from life… NOT!
First of all, there’s no such thing as perfection since I’m not a god, I’m just a human with tons of flaws. My flaws will be a great match to some other people’s flaws and they’ll see them as something fun, interesting and nothing near bad or disturbing. My flaws will also be of annoyance to others and since I can’t and am “too old” to want to anymore people please or try to blend in to perfectly do or fit in somewhere, I’ll rather call it a day and concentrate to get the best of my flaws and share it with people who love me for me.
One of the most overlooked accessories must be watches… At least when it comes to me, watches are the last item I have come to my attention when styling my outfits. In the modern day, when the electronics have taken over every little “manual” thing, I haven’t been thinking of hand watches or owning one up until this past Summer.
My collaboration with Cluse watches and after many years owning two beautiful watches, I got very excited about having and using hand watches, so I was very flattered to start a collaboration with Vienna watches.
Friday always seems to come faster than I’m ready for it! They say that the older you get, the days seem to fly by in a blink of an eye and I… I have to agree with this theory. I can’t believe that end of the year is here and that we have experienced the first snow already AND the festive season is in it’s full swing! Pre-Christmas parties are taking place “left and right”, the city has been decorated in Christmas ornaments and lights… Some people have even put up their Christmas trees!!
As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, the snow has arrived to Finland and we’ve been enjoying some brightness and Winter fun ( read: sliding through slippery streets, making first snowman, putting on 4-5 layers of clothes 😀 , etc. ) but as of yesterday, we’re back to Fall like weather, warmer temperatures and pouring rain.
Something that does make me happy about this kind of weather is the styling of my daily outfits, it’s not too cold for “I couldn’t care less how I look like” outfits, but it’s perfectly “chilly” to be more playful and creative with my combos.
Over the past week and half, it got really cold and very Wintery in Helsinki. First snow arrived and so did the low temp., slippery ground and ice tramps everywhere. Trench coats and sneakers were replaced by layers and layers of clothes, Winter coats and boots. I have to admit that I did love the appearance of the snow, but I did not enjoy one bit of coldness and having to wear tons of layers. The forecast savvy people are predicting that the snow will melt away by the end of this week and that the weather will warm up a little before Narnia like snow storms come back again. 🙂
Good Sunday morning my dear readers! It’s time for a third post in my “Sunday cafe” series! I’m happy to introduce you every few weeks to young, inspiring and creative minds which I’m proud to call my friends. After very well accepted posts with two gorgeous girlfriends , Rita and Katherine, it’s turn to balance it all well with a masculine addition – Leo! Leo will present himself properly on his own in the questionnaire below, but I’d like to say a few words as an introduction of this lovely gentleman.
He is one of those people whom I met only short time ago but “hit it off” instantly and feel as if I’ve known him for many years. I feel that as I grow older, I don’t make new friendships that easily anymore, but when I do recognise an alike mind and soul, I will always find “space” for those in my life… So, meet Mr. Leo!
I’ve always been a lover of delicate, feminine, timeless pieces, esp. when it comes to jewellery! I’m a jewellery lover and feel “naked” if I’m not wearing at least one piece on me… Somehow, I feel that none of my looks or outfits aren’t ready unless I have put on that perfect final touch with a favourite jewellery item.
