Happy 1st of May my dear readers! I hope that you’re enjoying your long weekend. 1st of May always marks a new, exciting part of the year, my favourite one – summery, sunny and energetic one! From this day onwards, the weather is usually much more stable, daylight is very long and I’m just overall more excited and energetic knowing that the Summer is just around the corner. This is something I “feed off” and it makes my soul happy so my productivity levels are usually quite high at this time. 🙂
When I think, I think in color… When I dream, I dream in color… When I cook, take photos, whatever… I do it in color. Oh how thankful I am to have the healthy sight, to be able to experience life and it’s beauty in colors. If I would have to give away all of my senses but keep only one, I would keep my sight! I can’t imagine not being able to perceive the world around me not using my sight.
Some years ago, I had this internal fight with myself that I have to do everything perfectly, that I need to be perfect and that only when these two are “all perfect”, I’ll get to where I want to be in life and I’ll get what I want from life… NOT!
First of all, there’s no such thing as perfection since I’m not a god, I’m just a human with tons of flaws. My flaws will be a great match to some other people’s flaws and they’ll see them as something fun, interesting and nothing near bad or disturbing. My flaws will also be of annoyance to others and since I can’t and am “too old” to want to anymore people please or try to blend in to perfectly do or fit in somewhere, I’ll rather call it a day and concentrate to get the best of my flaws and share it with people who love me for me.
I’m a girl which never takes a break… I will always keep on going at all costs. Heck, sometimes I don’t even take a break to cry and have a proper “breakdown” moment, but I deal with everything on the go or by swiping it “under the carpet” until I can, at some point, deal with it.
I just ride, ride and ride, I succeed, I fail, I get disappointed or I get proud, about myself or about people which I encounter… But I feel that I never take a proper moment to just “be” and process everything that’s happened, good or bad, people which I’ve met, etc.
We are born perfect. Little angels sent to the hands of our parents, completely unaware of anything, not even having a good sight, not being able to speak or move on our own, yet, we come to this earth as a perfection. Our parents see us as a beautiful gift… As we grow up and become more aware of ourselves and world that surrounds us, we realise that there are equally wonderful, perfect human beings around us too. We see our parents as our queens and kings, moms are the most beautiful creatures ever and dads are the charmers in their own way too. 😉 When we looked at ourselves in the mirror as little babies or toddlers, we would finally be aware of ourselves too. We would see how beautiful and cute we are, we would smile back at the reflection in the mirror and run off happily, minding our own day…
Good Monday morning everybody! I’m happy to start a new week presenting you my new Zaful dress. I’ve been approached by kind people at Zaful whom wanted me to choose a piece of clothing and as soon as I saw this dress, I knew that I wanted to have it. It’s so “me” since I’m a big sucker for anything feminine and floral.
Good Wednesday everybody! I felt like writing just a “chit-chat” kind of post and also present you my love for these espadrilles. I have literally spent half of my Summer in them, they’re so comfy and I can combine them with almost anything in my closet. If you haven’t, I can wholeheartedly suggest you to invest in a pair of good espadrilles.
Pepsi girl… That’s it, that’s where any connection between me and Pepsi or me and fizzy drinks stops. I used to be into all those drinks when I was little up until I was about 19, which means that for the past decade I didn’t have any, not even when going out and drinking some… ahem, alcohol. 😀 But I do love these kind of simple, loose “Pepsi girl” t-shirts which you can style however you want and I chose to style it in a sporty way.
Pepsi tyttö… siihen se jääkin sitten se minun ja Pepsin tai oikeastaan minkä tahansa poreilevan juoman suhde. Rakastin vastaavia juomia, silloin kun olin nuori, tai siihen asti kun täytin noin 19 vuotta. Mikä tarkoittaa sitä etten ole nauttinut yhtään limua viimeiseen vuosikymmeneen. En myöskään bailatessa ja nauttiessani…öhm alkoholia. Mutta rakastan näitä yksinkertaisia, löysiä “Pepsi tyttö” t-paitoja. Joita voi stailata ihan kuinka tahansa. Ja minä päätin stailata sen urheilullisella tavalla.
Patches are very popular this season! I have seen denim, camo and bomber jackets in stores and online which have some really cute and cool patches on them. I simply couldn’t pass on getting this bomber jacket, mostly because of the patch on the back that says “dream”. Yes… I’m a dreamer… Patched up one!
Hihamerkit ovat tämän kauden trendi. Olen nähnyt vaatekaupoissa tai nettikaupoissa farkku-, camo- ja pilottitakkeja, joihin on ommeltu nättejä ja makeita hihamerkkejä. En malttanut olla hankkimatta tätä pilottitakkia, lähinnä sen selässä olevan Dreamer (uneksija) merkin takia. Kyllä…olen uneksija…paikattu uneksija.
I grew up in a small village, while that was a blessing because I was protected at all times and I had a huge freedom of living a carefree childhood, playing for as long as I wanted outdoors, hiding in the forest, just sitting by the sea for an hour or even staying at my friend’s place over for lunch without having to inform my family about it ( there was no cellphones but only phones and after only few phone calls around, my parents would know where I was at ). To some extent, growing up in such a small and closed community, it was a bit of problem for me later on in my life. I was scared of being introduced to new people or go out in a big group of people.
