Dream, believe, achieve

April 26, 2015

Hello everybody! How are you doing? What did you do over the weekend? I’ve been out and about as much as I could. Saturday was very active in the morning time but around lunch time it turned out to be a “lounging in my sweats” kind of day since it’s been raining a lot and pretty chilly outside.

Sunday was all about visiting my favourite Farmer’s Market, brunching, visiting Hollywood Lake and checking on the legendary Hollywood sign, all finished with a home cooked lunch of falafel pita bread with tabbouleh, lettuce, dolmades and tzatziki. Yummers!

After a week of bad weather, we finally got the sun back and it’s warmth was very much appreciated! I had to right away get my new denim skirt from Zara out of the closet and give it a spin. I’ve decided to pair it with one of the coolest and motivational tees from Jules of Sincerely Jules blog. I simply LOVE that phrase: ” Dream, believe, achieve.” Three simple, yet very powerful words!

DREAMER – I have, I am and always will be a dreamer. My mom used to get very “angry” at me when I was little accusing me of being too much of a dreamer and never actually “present” in what some people call reality. I have always lived on a fine line between reality and some other, I guess own world, where only rules are of purity of soul and power of love. World where everything is possible, even when everybody says that something is impossible… World where I always run to for salvation when feeling sad or lonely… World where believing in the magic and power of dreams is the only option.

BELIEVE – See the dreamer explanation! 😀 Also, you can call me the silliest, easiest to play out person. I always believe too much and I always believe in everybody… Sometimes I believe so hard into a certain person or a dream that even when the “normal” person would give up and change the path, I’d still believe and push for the dream or idea that I see until it comes true, even though it’s not visible to others at first.

ACHIEVE – I’m an achiever… I need to achieve in order to feel good from the inside. No matter what it is, small or big, I only feel accomplished from the inside if I have achieved something I wanted to.

There, now you got to know a little bit more about me. 🙂

Wishing you all a very lovely Monday! Rock on dear ladies ( and gents )!

I’m wearing: Sandals – Saint Laurent, Skirt& shirt – Zara, Tee – Sincerely Jules, Bag – Chanel, Bracelet – Givenchy, Earrings – HOH1960

    I meni se ova majica već dugo vremena sviđa 🙂 I obožavam ove tvoje sandale, super ti stoje i baš uvijek podignu svaku kombinaciju 🙂
    Traper suknje nikad nisam voljela, doslovno od malena haha volim ih vidjeti na drugim ljudima, ali ih doslovno na sebi ne mogu zamisliti 😀

    • Reply natali karppinen April 27, 2015 at 6:29 AM

      Hvala ti! Ja sam uvijek voljela traper ali znam sto zelis reci. Ja isto tako imam neke “uzorke” ili materijale koje ne bih nikad mogla odijenuti na sebe ali ih iz nekog cudnog razloga volim vidjeti na drugim ljudima. 😀

    Mene traper suknjice asociraju na dane kada sam bila curicak… imala sam jednu kakti poderanu s debelim (saljackim:) traper remenom i bila sam si sva vazna i zgodna u njoj (a taj je osjecaj bio ekstremno rijedak u toj dobi) pa mi nekako dodje milo kad vidim traper suknjicu… 🙂
    Ne znam, meni je tako lako i prirodno vjerovati i “gurati” druge sanjare ali kada je rijec o meni… tu padam na testu nazalost :/
    Kombica mi je predivna kao i ti u njoj… bas mi sjajis sve vise iz posta u post 🙂

    • Reply natali karppinen April 27, 2015 at 6:25 PM

      Hvala ti draga moja na divnim rijecima, puno mi znace jer dolaze upravo od tebe!
      Ja isto cesto padnem na “testu” sanjarstva i guranja svog zacrtanog cilja ali se srecom
      isto tako brzo saberem i nastavim jos zesce. 🙂
      Ti si 50 nijansi jedna od najdivnijih osoba koje sam upoznala u zadnjih xy godina i iskreno ti kazem
      da MORAS dati sebi pravo da sanjas, da osluskujes svoje srce i da budes “sebicna” ponekad jer znam
      da si sposobna vidjeti “bigger picture”. :*

    Did you order the t-shirt online or does Sincerely Jules has a shop in L.A?
    I want very badly to buy some things from her collection but the import taxes are just too high for Europe.

    Majica je divna, ali još je divnije tvoje objašnjenje i tekst koji ide uz nju…baš si nadahnuće…i mislim da svi moramo biti sanjari, barem pomalo, jer ako u nešto ne vjerujemo, makar u mogućnost toga, onda ne vjerujemo ni u budućnost, a ni u sada.
