5 for Friday

May 6, 2016


Good morning my dear readers! It’s finally a weekend and I’m very excited about it. There’s a lot of things I’m looking forward to do over the weekend and ultimately, I can’t wait to celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday. I’ve been a mom for 7+ years now and I can’t put into words what it means to me to be a mom to the most special, beautiful and smart little girl like my daughter is. <3

Are you a mom? Do you celebrate Mother’s Day this weekend too? Are you going to treat your mom something special? Let me know in the comments! 🙂

In only a few days, I’ll be travelling to Croatia and I can’t wait but it sure will be hard to leave the gorgeous weather that we’ve been having in Helsinki for over a week now! It’s a record believe me, esp. for the month of May. 😀

Past week was a mix of turbulence and chill moments so to say… I’m totally in a need of good weekend, so I’ll kick it off early and head out to do some gift shopping for my family in Croatia.

Have a great Friday and weekend everybody! May the sun shine strong wherever you are right now!

Here’s a roundup of my 5 favourite Instagram shots from the past week.

    I ovdje je danas konačno predivan dan, od jutra sam u kratkim rukavima i laganim tenisicama…ma savršeno, samo neka tako i ostane! 🙂 Divno se provedi za Majčin dan, mi to nikad nismo slavili, a pogotovo ne sad kad više ne živimo u istim gradovima. Kod mene postoji samo Božić, Nova godina i rođendani, sve ostalo se slavi svakodnevno 😀

    • Reply natali karppinen May 7, 2016 at 6:31 AM

      Super! Nadam se da ce ostati lijepo vrijeme, pogotovo sad kad dolazim u Sibenik za par dana. 🙂
      Hehe, znam na sto mislis… Kod nas je bilo isto, Majcin dan ili Dan zena, itd., niti smo znali kad su ti datumi niti smo ih nesto posebno obiljezavali ali otkad zivim u Finskoj, ovdje su svi ti datumi “big deal” i veliko je slavlje, sto mi je donekle bas simpa i lijepo da se slave zene, majke i sl.
      Mislim, ako postoji nesto tako cudno kao “bagel day” onda Majcin dan zasluzuje biti slavljen jos vise. 😀

    Wishing you a wonderful Mother`s Day, and a safe and happy time
    in Croatia. A lovely country, and remember it well.
    I can see that your daughter is taking after her mother when it comes
    to being at the height of all things fashionable.

      Thank you so much Jo! You’re so kind for liking our fashion “sense”! 😀
      She’s such a girly girl and loves to dress up, so it’s been a lot of fun to do mom-daughter shopping with her. 🙂

  • Reply Lyosha May 6, 2016 at 9:43 PM

    I always try my best to express my love for my mo on mother’s day but always laughs and says she doesn’t need a special day to know she is loved.
    You and your daughter look so adorable together!

      I think that any mom will say the same but we still are very thankful to be remembered and celebrated on Mother’s Day! 🙂
      Have a great weekend with your mom and thank you for commenting!
