Hello from the other side! 😀 Since my last outfit post, I have arrived to Croatia for work and holidays. I have already visited Split and Zagreb cities, worked on some cool collaborations, met friends and have enjoyed the sunshine as well as an amazing food! Croatia, esp. these two cities have an incredible food scene and prices are very affordable comparing to what I’m usually paying in Helsinki for the same kind of meal.
Talking about the expenses and such… I’m not impressed with the whole Christmas craziness that’s pretty much EXPLODING as we speak. I just see that people are manically buying everything and anything that their eyes can see at the stores. I feel as if people don’t get it that “things” are not what makes you happy, that’s not the point of the whole Christmas spirit and life does not end after Christmas. It actually continues and there’re another 365 days to live through… All of these endless ornaments will be stored away in about 2 weeks from now. The amount of food prepared could easily be cut in half or even more because everybody seems to overeat for a few days and then start a “super promising” new diet and green juice cleanse because – new year – new me! “Let’s shed the pounds together! Summer is around the corner!” Sounds familiar? Yes, that’s how usually magazines and internet are bombing us right after the New Year starts.
I’m in a completely different mood this Christmas… To be honest, I couldn’t care less about the Christmas tree, decorations, food, etc. I’m thinking of baking something for people I love and bring it to them as a present, I feel like doing some charity… I also know that singing some songs, watching a Christmas themed cartoon with my daughter and going for a walk or to the play park is the best gift that I can give her. I know that she’s still so little and “needs” her gifts under the Christmas tree, but I think that you get the point ( and hopefully an inspiration ) by now. 🙂
After eliminating the urge to buy things and fall under the unnecessary Christmas celebration pressure, I’m off for a walk by the sea side and am looking forward to meeting some more of my dear friends on this Monday morning! What are you up to today my dear readers?
