CLUSE watches

July 11, 2016

I’m 28 and am only 3 months away from my 29th birthday. I can honestly say that I’m excited to start the last year of my 20s. I’m loving the woman I’m becoming and I’m loving the outlook on life I’ve been carving by collecting all of the ups and downs, learning about my weaknesses and recognising my strengths… I don’t know why is everybody making a big deal about 30s because I can’t wait for my 30s and all of the smarts and confidence that come with them.

Olen 28 vuotias ja 3 kuukauden päässä 29 vuotis synttäreistäni. Ja voin rehellisesti sanoa että olen innoissani siitä että viimeinen vuosi on alkamassa ennen kolmekyppisiäni. Rakastan sitä naista joksi minä olen muuttumassa. Ja rakastan sitä elämänkatsomusta jota olen veistämässä itselleni keräämällä ylä- ja alamäkiä matkallani. Opin ymmärtämään heikkouteni ja vahvuuteni… En oikeen ymmärrä sitä että miksi kaikki tekevät siitä niin suuren numeron että täyttää kolmekymmentä. Maltan tuskin odottaa sitä hetkeä ja sitä viisautta ja itsevarmuutta jonka se tuo mukanaan.

Each year that I get older, I find “liking” and accepting myself more and more. It def. took a long time to come to the terms to being happy with who I am and just be unapologetically myself, at all times. I used to be a crowd pleaser, I used to be everything to everybody, but the older I’ve grown, the more I have let my true self finally come out on the surface and while I have learned so much about myself, I have simultaneously started to see the world around me in a different, better and more meaningful way.

Joka vuosi kun vanhenen huomaan “tykkääväni” ja hyväksyväni itseni yhä enemmän ja enemmän. Se todellakin otti pitkän ajan oppia olemaan iloinen siitä että kuka minä olen. Ja olla anteeksipyytelemättä oma itseni, kaikkina hetkinä. Olin ennen kaikkien miellyttäjä ja olin kaikkea aina kaikille. Mutta mitä vanhemmaksi olen kasvanut sitä enemmän olen antanut oman itseni tulla pintaan. Ja kun olen oppinut niin paljon uutta itsestäni, olen saman aikaan alkanut näkemään ympärillä olevaa maailmaa erilasemmassa, paremmassa ja merkittävemmässä valossa.

While I have realised that I’m a person who wears “many hats” and can juggle many things and roles at once, in day-to-day life, I’m also all about simplicity, minimalism and finding beauty and happiness in the smallest of things.

Sillä aikaa kun olen huomannut että minä olen henkilö joka kyttää “monta hattua” ja osaan hoitaa monta asiaa ja roolia päivittäisessä elämässä. Kaipaan myös yksinkertaisuutta, minimalismia ja onnellisuutta pienimuotoisesti elämääni.

Having less and needing less has been my motto which has helped me not just to clean out my life of negativity and how to pick my “fights”, but it has also helped me to clean out my home and closet of tons of unnecessary things. Keeping my home and closet as much feng shui as possible has brought my mind more peace and clarity too. I’m more inspired, productive and happier.

Se että on vähän ja kaipaa vähemmän asioita on tullut nykyään minun mottoni. Ja se on auttanut minua siivoamaan elämääni negatiivisuudesta. Ja auttanut valitsemaan “taistoni”. Ja se on auttanut minua myös siivoamaan oman kotini ja kaappini ylimääräisistä tavaroista. Pitämällä kotini ja kaappini mahdollisimman feng shuina on myös tuonut mieleeni rauhan ja selkeyden. Olen enemmän inspiroitunut, tuottelias ja onnellinen.

If we just talk about my closet situation, I have donated, threw out or sold lots of belongings in a past year or so, but some pieces are such staples and a “must haves” in every girls’ closet that I will never get rid of or get bored by wearing them. As in clothes, same works for my accessories, I have narrowed down to only few pieces of jewelery which I love and will wear over and over again. Quality over quantity!

Jos puhumme vain minun vaatekaapin tilanteesta. Olen lahjoittanut, heittänyt pois tai myynyt paljon tavaroitani viimeisen vuoden aikana. Mutta jotkut vaatteet tai tavarat ovat niin perustarvikkeita tai “pakko omistaa” joka tytön vaatekaapissa että en ikinä tule luopumaan tai tule kyllästymään niihin. Niin kuin vaatteissa, sama pätee myös asusteisiin. Olen jättänyt itselleni vain muutamia koruja joita rakastan ja käytän yhä uudestaan ja uudestaan. Laatu korvaa määrän!

clusewatch2

This big clean out made me realise that I was missing one important staple in my accessories box and that was a watch! If you’ve been reading my blog for a while and have payed attention to my outfit posts, I never wear watch in any of them. I had only two watches so far in my life and they both ended up missing, first one got swallowed up by a “black hole” at home and 2nd one was a misfortunate loss on one of my summer holidays. After that I was on a self proclaimed watch ban and didn’t even think of buying or wearing another one until I saw CLUSE watches and completely fell in love with them.

Tämän siivoamisen myötä olen huomannut että minun asuste laatikosta puuttui yksi olennainen perustarvike, ja se oli rannekello! Jos olet lukenut minun blogiani jo jonkin aikaa, ja olet kiinnittänyt huomiota minun vaatekerta kuviin. En ikinä pidä kelloa yhdessäkään niistä. Olen tähän asti omistanut ainoastaan kaksi kelloa minun elämässäni. Mutta ne ovat molemmat hävinneet. Ensimmäinen hävisi johonkin “mustaan aukkoon” kotona. Ja toinen hävisi ikäväkseni jonkun kesäloman aikana. Sen jälkeen päätin julistaa itselleni kello kiellon. Enkä edes enää ikinä ajatellut ostaa tai käyttää kelloa, ennen kuin törmäsin CLUSE KELLOIHIN. Ja rakastuin niihin palavasti.

clusewatch

Every single watch was just perfect for me, so elegant, minimalistic and simply beautiful! That’s when I knew that it’s time to get myself a new watch. Third time is the charm, right?! 🙂

Jokainen kello oli täydellinen minulle. Niin aistikas, minimalistinen, ja puhtaasti kaunis! Ja se oli se hetki jolloin minulle selvisi, että minun on pakko hankkia itselleni uusi kello. Kolmas kerta toden sanoo, eikö?!

I was so happy to receive my CLUSE watch in the post last week, I couldn’t wait to put it on. I loved my watch instantly and I almost don’t want to take it off when I go to bed at night. 😀 All of the Cluse watches are produced with attention and care, strongly focusing on materials and quality control. I can’t praise them enough, it’s a real breakthrough for me and I have def. found my match! This watch is a keeper and I can strongly recommend it to everybody. Cluse watches are also very specific in a way that just by buying one watch, you will never get bored by it, because you can buy an extra set of watch straps and change them however and whenever you like! It’s so easy and just by two clicks, you got yourself a whole new watch.

Olin niin onnellinen kun sain minun CLUSE kellon postissa viime viikolla. Ja tuskin maltoin laittaa sitä heti käteeni. Rakastuin minun uuteen kellooni heti. Enkä melkein malttanut ottaa sitä pois kädestäni, kun menin illalla sänkyyn. Kaikki Cluse kellot on valmistettu tarkkaavaisuudella ja huolella. Keskittymällä materiaaleihin ja laadun tarkkailuun. En voi kehua niitä tarpeeksi sillä ne ovat minulle läpimurto. Ja olen vihdoinkin löytänyt itselleni sopivan! Ja tämä kello loistava ja voi kernaasti suositella sitä jokaiselle. CLUSE kello ovat siinä mielessä erityisiä, että niihin ei kyllästy koskaan. Sillä voit ostaa kellon mukana lisä kellon rannekkeita. Ja vaihtaa niitä itse oman mielen mukaan. Se on niin helppoa. Sillä vain kahdella klikkauksella, saat itsellesi uuden kellon.

I have decided to get a gold watch with gold mesh straps and an extra pair of black straps. This way I get the maximum use of my Cluse watch, I can use the black leather straps during daytime and change to gold ones for a night out or a more dressier event.

Check out CLUSE watches store ( they ship worldwide ) and get to feel fabulous as I do while wearing my watch. I feel empowered, sophisticated and stylish!

Olen päättänyt hankkia kultaisen kellon kultaisella rannekkeella ja lisä mustan rannekkeen. Tällä tavoin saan kellostani kaiken irti. Voin käyttää mustaa ranneketta päivisin. Ja vaihtaa kultaiseen rannekkeeseen, silloin kuin lähden illalla ulos. Tai kun haluan pukeutua tyylikkäämmin, johonkin tapahtumaan.

Tsekkaa CLUSE kellokauppa (he toimittavat maailmanlaajuisesti) Ja tunne itsesi tarunhohtoiseksi. Saman lailla kuin minä, silloin kun käytän kelloani. Tunnen silloin itseni voimakkaaksi, hienostuneeksi ja tyylikkääksi.

    Dearest Natali, I must follow your steps and do some major decluttering in my closet since I am a hoarder and I can hardly find something when I look for it…I feel I have to because it makes me anxious ! I love your style, always elegant even when it’s simple and it’s supposed to be casual, you have something that comes from your soul, a natural elegance and this is very rare. I love your look, the skirt is wonderful and that watch is a timeless piece, a classic you will be adapting to many outfits ! The pic of you with your sweet smile and no sunglasses is so beautiful…you truly are a princess, my friend ! Many kisses

    predivna ženstvena i elegantna kombinacija u koji se taj divni sat odlično uklopio. Suknja me oduševila, a i sandalice su divne. Jako mi se sviđaju fotografije, izgledaš lijepo i sofisticirano.

    Svaka čast na tome što si uspjela uvesti minimalizam u dom, ja moram napraviti isto, ali čekam da se preselim u novu kuću:) No, zapravo trebalo bi odmah početi jer skupljanje stvari je jedna loša navika, a nažalost nekako mi se dogodilo da sam je počela usvajati.

      Da, ja sam ista bila i bas mi se bilo tesko bilo cega “odreci” ali kad sam jednom pocela sve cistiti i izbacivati/ donirati, ne mogu ti objasniti koje sam olaksanje dozivjela! Kao nova osoba sam postala i sad stvarno promislim jedno 5 puta prije nego se odlucim nesto kupiti i donijeti doma. Jednako vrijedi i za robu.

      Puno ti hvala na divnim komplimentima, stvarno si me razveselila! 🙂

    I have been away on holiday and now trying to catch up. First: you look lovely wearing that blue shirt and my favorite white skirt. You are looking remarkably well, Natali. Must be the de-cluttering is having health benefits. I am glad you love your watch. When I was growing up, I was taught that, if possible, we should own a well made pair of shoes and a Swiss made wristwatch. I have to confess that I have a few of each. A watch should be worn during the night’s too. Constant body heat will make it more accurate. X
