Visit Croatia: D-Resort Sibenik

August 7, 2017

If you didn’t know, Croatia has been the hottest Summer vacation destination in Europe for the last couple of years. It’s been the most wanted pick by many this Summer especially. When tourists, wanderers, nomad souls are looking for a place to visit in Croatia where they will get the maximum of beautiful and clean beaches, delicious Mediterranean food and great hospitality, they usually are all having different preferences when it comes to places to stay at. Some will opt for Airbnb, some will like the affordable and no fuss hostels, while others will want to go “all the way out” and enjoy their vacation to the max by choosing to stay at high standard hotels such as D-Resort for instance.  Continue Reading…

Hygge with Pandora

July 10, 2017

Hygge, a Norwegian word for “wellbeing” or in my “books” known as hedonism! 🙂 I guess that by now, everybody has heard about Hygge and an art of living in a cosy, high quality, self loving way. At first I thought that the word was silly and all those books which were being sold out on “how to hygge” were too hipster. I gave the whole wellbeing movement a second thought and I have realised that leading hygge way of life is one of the best things you can do for yourself! Continue Reading…

Visit Helsinki : Clarion airport hotel

May 27, 2017

How grandiose can be an airport hotel? I have always avoided staying at the airport hotels, unless that was the only option due to my flights either taking off too early or being canceled. Even with that, I have stayed at the airport hotels maybe 3 or 4 times. When I do travel abroad, I’m not your super cool “Airbnb” gal which scores big time some super cool place for the fraction of the price you’d pay for staying at 4 or 5 star hotels. When I travel, I do want to have everything ” top notch ” and feel like I’m treating myself every moment of the trip. Great hotel with the high standard services and policies is one of the major links of making the most of my trip and being 100% satisfied with the money spent on, as I like to say, pure hedonism.

5 for Friday

January 6, 2017

Good Friday morning everybody! Besides already being on holidays in Croatia, today is an official holiday day so I won’t be chit-chatting for too long as I still have some of my best friends to meet, prepare and eat a family lunch and possibly take a walk outdoors in the evening if the weather allows.

Nicole Vienna watches

November 20, 2016

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.

5 tips for Summer festivals

July 15, 2016

IMG_6358

Summer is my most favourite time of the year! Surprise, surprise, that was SO hard to predict. 😀 Ever since I was little, I was living for Summer and everything that comes with it, endless sunshine, happy times at the beach, swimming my heart out in the sea, eating tons of ice cream and just being carefree.

KesĂ€ on minun suosikki vuoden aika. YllĂ€ty, yllĂ€tys, olipa vaikea arvata 🙂 Olen ihan pienestĂ€ pitĂ€en elĂ€nyt kesĂ€lle ja kaikkeen mikĂ€ siihen liittyy. Loputon auringonpaiste, iloisia hetkiĂ€ rannalla, estoton meressĂ€ uiminen, jÀÀtelön syöminen litra kaupalla ja huoleton fiilis.

One of the reasons why I’ve been loving Summer even more as I was growing older was ( and still is ) all of the happenings that seem to happen many times a week, every week, through the whole Summer. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with so many interesting events to go to and so many amazing Summer festivals to check out.

Yksi syy minkÀ takia aloin rakastamaan kesÀÀ vielÀ enemmÀn kasvettuani oli (ja on vielÀkin) lukemattomien kesÀtapahtumien mÀÀrÀ. Useana pÀivÀnÀ viikossa, joka viikko ja ihan koko kesÀn ajan. Lukemattomien tapahtumien ja festivaalien mÀÀrÀ joihin pitÀisi mennÀ, tekee minuun suuren vaikutuksen.

Croatia roundup

June 17, 2016

IMG_2781

If you do follow me on Instagram, you have probably noticed that I’m back to Helsinki. The temperature/ weather difference came to me as a shock, it’s at least 10 degrees less than in Croatia and it’s been raining like crazy for the past two days. If it continues like this, I can kiss my “olive skin” tan away. 😀

Anyways, Croatia was amazing, the sun, sea and people made my soul and heart filled with happiness and gratitude. I didn’t knew how much I needed to recharge my batteries until I have arrived there and on the very first day have realised that all I wanted was to sit by the sea, in peace and just “be”.

My dear readers, whenever you can, go and travel, you will always return back home a different person than you were before you left on a trip. Travelling always makes you richer and gives so much closure on some things that are so important as well as make you dismiss those that are of no use/ good for you anymore.

Here’re few photos to roundup the final days of my trip. It’s FRI-YAY and I’m happy for the weekend to be here, some quality time will be spent with my daughter and close friends.

Have a great weekend sweethearts!
