How to style mom jeans? That was the question which intrigued me when I spotted this particular pair of mom jeans at Zara. I love to wear jeans and I find trashed, vintage looking denim super cool too but I have never been into mom jeans, therefore I had no clue how to look effortlessly cool as many other girls do pulling off one of the biggest trends right now.

Making a difference in every single day is something I’ve had on my mind a lot lately. How to make a difference in a day, at home, at work, outside on the street, in the community… What can I do to make this world a better place? What can I do to make a difference which will inspire at least one single person to take an action and want to make a difference too?! Continue Reading…
5 facts about me… Oh my, I don’t know how many times I’ve come across that kind of post in other blogs but I never seemed to manage to come around it, scrabble down something about myself. Maybe I’m not that good in telling about myself. Maybe I’m telling about myself more through my photos than I do with the words, but I have decided that today, I want to share 5 facts about me which you may or may not know by now. Continue Reading…
I remember hearing once that it’s not that hard to adjust to something good. Well, I must say that it took me a mere second to adjust to a “whooping” +26 and more C and wearing my Summer clothes! I’ve been loving my, almost a week spent in the south of Croatia. Continue Reading…
Well, that was a lovely Mother’s Day weekend that I had! How was your weekend? Did you also celebrate Mother’s Day in your country? Are you a mom yourself too?
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. 🙂
If you’ve been reading my blog and following my photography work for a while now, you might have noticed that I’m a very emotional person… Somebody who wears her heart on her sleeve, somebody who “triple feels” everything so deeply… When I was little, I’ve been always told to suppress my feelings, to not show them easily and not to everybody. Do you think I’ve learned how to do that? Nope, but I did learn something else… How to mask my feelings.
As you might remember from my previous posts, I’ve been mentioning that I would be attending my friend’s wedding and it happened two days ago in a little town on the South of Croatia. Little town in which I grew up, went to school in and have so much that still connects me to it. Some of the memories will never die and I will always in a way or another have special place for this town in my heart.
I was happy to bring along my daughter with me to the wedding ceremony to witness one of the most beautiful moments and highlights of any relationship. I know that real love doesn’t need any papers, stamps or “files” but when there is a wedding happening already, it’s such a sweet and magical moment which makes everybody equally happy and excited to see the smiles and proudness on the faces of the bride and groom.
Seeing my friend and her now husband getting married, having that magical love aura surrounding them and being just so truly happy in that moment, right there and then surrounded by the closest people made me realise how little we need to be truly happy and how often we think that we need this or that in order to be someday completely happy. I have already touched base on this same subject before and it’s more clear to me now than ever before that…
There’s no such thing as complete happiness and there are no formulas on how to get happiness come to or be part of your daily life. We all hurt and cry, we all laugh and love, it’s just up to our inner selves how much we’ll let the real happiness be part of our daily lives. Seeing my daughter being excited and happy about the smallest things such as Kinder Surprise and which toy she’ll get in it made me think more and realise that happiness truly does lie in the smallest things and it’s never about the big things, let alone materialistic ones. I have been “guilty” of thinking that having more will give you more happiness, stability, closure… Whatever! That’s bullocks my dear readers. Core of real happiness is inside of us and it’s not up to anybody else OR hoarding on things to make us happy… It’s up to us to let ourselves BE happy and appreciate the smallest, daily life miracles. It is a miracle and a pure happiness to open your eyes every day and know that you are alive, that you breathe, that you have a possibility to do a good deed, that you have a chance to put a smile on another person’s face, that you have the choice to surprise a friend with a flower bouquet… That you have an option to be happy and spread happiness anywhere you go. It’s not in the big things, it’s not in materialistic things… It’s in that kid’s honest smile, it’s in that perfect ice cream ball in a cone, it’s in the sun that is shining today…
Thank you for reading and commenting my dears, you are among other “small things” what makes me so happy day in-day out. 🙂

Pulse. Sometimes I just need to remember to stop for a moment and “check” my pulse. It’s incredible how much we’re capable of putting a big load of responsibilities and tasks on our shoulders, running around, making a living, trying to balance all of the roles that we’re so to say, playing in our lives… How often are we guilty of not putting ourselves in the first place much more often?!
Checking your own pulse… Being in a complete silence, not thinking about anything, not doing anything, just sitting or laying down, listening to your own heartbeat… When was the last time that you have done this? I truly can’t remember when was the last time that I have done it.
Even when I have my “down time”, it still involves some sort of electronics around me, thoughts still rushing through my mind and/ or worrying about “what could maybe be” with whatever it is that might be bothering me or which tasks I haven’t managed to take care of today and how can I solve them tomorrow, etc.
I had a pretty stressful week, esp. the weekend and I’ll do my best to remember and check my own pulse more often this week, worry less, stress less and treat myself a little bit more. New working BUT wise!! and relaxing week, here I come! 😀
Happy Monday everybody!

Happy Spring everybody!!! It surely doesn’t feel like Spring is yet in Helsinki, but we’re getting there, we are.. 😀 I’m super excited about finally being able to pull out lighter clothes from my closet, ditch the Winter boots for many months and start planning all sorts of outdoor activities that I love to do in Spring, such as picnics in the city parks and long strolls all over the city or by the beach.
