August 16, 2015

Happy, wonderful Monday morning everybody!! I have slept well last night and I woke up energised this morning to the rays of sunshine sneaking through the window blinder’s “cracks”. 🙂 My weekend was both, hectic and inspiring. Working long hours on Saturday and then some more yesterday by working on the blog content, future arrangements and also putting up 10 of my artworks at my friend’s cafe – CAFE ROUGE  in the centre of Helsinki. 🙂

From this morning on, you can go there, say hello to the most wonderful, heartwarming and sweet Maggie and her amazing gentleman Tony, check the “best off” of my artwork AND have the most delicious Lebanese lunch ever while doing that!!

I’m now off to take my gorgeous princess to her preschool which starts today! I can’t believe that she’s all grown up now and that she’ll be starting school in a year from now. Omg!! How in the world did 6 and half years flew by so fast? I wish I could stop the time just for a little bit and be able to embrace and enjoy every single moment of her childhood. I’m a person that has hard times trying to live in the present, so while I need to remind myself to not be so much “stuck” in the future, planning, organising, etc. I feel that the present moment goes by too fast and that I never get to live it through as I’d like to… Well, this is a whole another subject that I’d like to talk about more in one of my future posts, so let’s leave it at that and I would like to wish you an amazing beginning of a whole new working week. Let’s do this folks! <3

P.S. Don’t forget to use the code: LARTOFFASHION if you live or work in Helsinki for a free delivery service when you order your breakfast, lunch or dinner via FOODORA Finland .

I’m wearing: Loafers – Michael Kors, Dress – Zara, Sunglasses – Chloe, Necklace – Tory Burch, Ring, bracelet & bag – House of Harlow 1960
