Summer’s end

August 18, 2015

Summer’s end? After not really having a Summer in Helsinki, August was absolutely wonderful! The sun kept on shining every day so far, the days were perfectly warm and the outdoor life was buzzing like as if we ‘re somewhere much more south in Europe than we are.

I’m so happy and thankful that the sun is still shining and the days are so warm that I do get use out of my summertime wardrobe which grew huge during the months back in LA in the first half of this year. I’m now a bit “stressing” over my Fall and Winter clothes because my closet rack is almost empty in that department. I wasn’t planning on coming back to live in Helsinki again so soon, so I’ve donated pretty much all of my Winter clothes. I need to do some shopping soon in order not to freeze my butt off once the Summer comes to it’s end in Helsinki and that can literally happen over the night here. :O

I’m now getting ready to run my errands, make some lunch and then I’m off to my other work as a suis chef. I can’t even begin to tell you guys how much I’ve been loving my new job, working with passionate, young and creative team that only serves the best tasting and looking dishes to the customers. I’m so excited to go to work every day since I get to learn so much and improve my skills all the time. I’m truly one lucky gal to be able to say that I love what I do and I live of from what I do, be it blogging, photographing or cooking. Thank you heavens for dealing me these kind of cards, I’m gonna do my best to really “repay” the trust that’s been laid on me and I hope to inspire as many people as I can, all around the world. 🙂

My mini, best off, exhibition is up at Cafe Rouge here in Helsinki, so don’t forget to stop by and take a look if you are in Helsinki anytime soon ( or maybe even right now ). 🙂 I’ll be adding couple of more works here and there before we take away all of the artwork, sometime in Fall and I start working on the new cycle of photos because I got some stories to share! Yeah! 😀

Much love to all of you my dear readers!!

I’m wearing: Shoes – Vagabond, Blazer – Givenchy, Blouse – Max Mara, Bag – Balenciaga, Sunnies – Celine, Bracelet – JCrew, Earrings – Chanel, Jeans – Tiger Of Sweden

Kesän loppu? Olemattoman kesän jälkeen, Elokuun on ollut kerrassaan ihana! Aurinko on jaksanut paistaa joka päivä, ja päivät ovat olleet täydellisen lämpimiä.

Olen niin onnellinen ja kiitollinen siitä että aurinko sen kuin vaan jaksaa paistaa, ja päivät ovat niin lämpimiä. Että pystyn vielä käyttämään vaatteita Los Angelesissa vietettyjen kuukausien aikana kokoamastani kesävaatekaapistani. Toisaalta minua stressaa hieman minun Syksy- ja Talvivaatteiden tilanne. Sillä niiden räkki ammottaa tyhjyyttään. Minun aikomuksen ei ollut muuttaa takaisin Helsinkiin näin nopeasti, joten olen lahjoittanut pois suurimman osan Talvivaattestani. Minun on pakko käydä shoppaamassa kohtapuolin. Jotta en palelluttaisi itseäni, sitten kun kesä vihdoinkin päättyy. Ja se kesä voi päättyä täällä Helsingissä kirjaimellisesti yhdessä yössä.

Valmistaudun nyt lähtemään ulos asioilleni, ja valmistamaan lounasta ja sitten onkin jo aika mennä toisen työni pariin apukokkina. Sanat eivät riitä kertomaan sitä että miten paljon rakastan uutta työtäni. Kun saan työskennellä intohimoisen, nuoren ja luovan tiimin kanssa. Joka tarjoaa ainoastaan parhaimman makuisia ja näköisiä ruoka-annoksia asiakkailleen. Olen niin innoissan siitä kun pääsen työpaikalleni joka päivä. Koska opin koko ajan paljon uutta ja samalla kohennan taitojani. Olen tosi onnekas nainen, kun voin sanoa että mina rakastan sitä mitä teen työkseni ja että voin elättää sillä itseni. Oli se sitten bloggausta, valokuvausta tai kokkaamista. Luojalle kiitos että minulle on jaettu tällaiset kortit. Minä aion tehdä parhaani näyttääkseni että olen luottamisen arvoinen ja että voin olla inspiraatio niin monelle ihmiselle kun se vain on mahdollista ympäri mailman. 

Minun mini kokoelma näyttelyni on juuri avannut Café´Rougessa täällä Helsingissä. Joten muistakaa käydä katsastamassa se näyttely jos olet käymässä Helsingissä lähiaikoina. Ajattelin lisätä silloin tällöin siihen näyttelyyn muutaman kuvan. Ennen kuin se näyttely puretaan jossakin vaiheessa Syksyä. Ennen kuin aloitan uuden näyttelyn kokoamisen/kuvaamisen, sillä minulla on monta tarinaa jotka haluan jakaa teidän kanssanne.

Toivotan

    divna je ta bluzica, sviđaju mi se jako detalji na rukavima, a i cijela kombinacija je za deset…drago mi je što ima sunca da malo napuniš baterije za zimu. Novi posao sigurno mora biti zanimljiv, kuhanje je također jedna vrsta umjetnosti i ne sumnjam da tebi kao kreativnoj duši posve leži. pozdrav!
