It happened! Spring or should I even dare to say, Summer has finally arrived to Finland!!! Yay! I had a wonderful weekend, spent outdoors, enjoying the sun rays, birds chirping, lots of flower blooms everywhere I turned… You wouldn’t believe the excitement when I have taken my Winter coat off and took off from my home with a dress on! Continue Reading…
Good Monday morning everybody! How was your weekend? I hope that you had as much fun and great times as I did. I feel that I was all over the place ever since September started and I’ve been very happy and thankful for that, because I’ve met some incredibly amazing and inspiring people, I’ve spent lots of time with friends, attended some cool events and did tons of work as well as my conceptual photography shooting/ planning and agreeing on the future shoots. I’m set on having an exhibition next year in Spring and if everything goes well and as planned, creating it will keep me very occupied and hopefully on the top of my creative game until the end of this year.
We’re couple of days into a new month, so happy September to all of my readers! September always marks the end of Summer and beginning of Fall in my “calendar” and with that in mind, I can not escape thinking about the final 4 months of this year. Can you believe it? Only that little is left of 2016 and I intend on giving my best to those final 4 months before embarking onto a whole new year, some new wishes, promises, dreams…
Happy month of May everybody!! How was your weekend? Did you had a nice May Day celebrations? I had a chill weekend which consisted of long walks, “sucking up” all of the sunshine ( weather was incredible ) and having an ice cream by the beach. I went to Sea Life as well since I love the sea world and it’s creatures. 🙂 Sea Life always makes me calm…
I love the idea and feeling of new, fresh beginnings and every time, when the 1st of month comes around, I feel that I have a chance to press that invisible “restart” button, sort out my thoughts, have a conversation with my inner being and get a clearer picture of the path I’ll be taking on that month(s).
I feel that the time which we’re given in this life is a gift and a curse at the same time. It’s a gift, because if we use our time right, we can do so much, we can make a big difference in the world eventually and we can def. someday die knowing that we’ve done it and seen it all… But if we don’t use the time that we’ve been given to the max, we’ll always feel somehow “lost”, uncomplished and as if the time just slipped out of our hands. E’ll wake up someday when we’re suddenly 10 years older and will have no idea where did the time in between pass by.
Writing down 5 things I’m thankful for and 5 things that I want to accomplish/ do each month does help me see and feel that I’m using my “fresh start” correctly or they give me perspective on what I could and want to do more of in the next month.
Couple of years ago I had the attitude of “there’s still time” and a lot of days were taken for granted because of that. I only now see that the time we’ve been given is so precious, uncontrollable and it might end tomorrow, so hitting the refresh or restart button every 1st of the month has proven to be a very good thing for me.. It also made me much more humble in sense that I’ve learned to find the beauty everywhere around me, in the smallest of the things. Hitting the restart button made me see that when you do a lot of little, but significant things each month, you’ll end up having a year that will equal the value of 5 years of being “lost in translation”.
Go, hit that restart button today and make this month of May the best one so far. 🙂

Zum-zum! My wake up call rings, I look through my window and it’s still pitch black outside… I guess we’re not that closer to Spring as I’ve been hoping for. 😀 It’s only mid of February but it feels great to start a new week with new plans, new work assignments and new adventures, no matter what’s the weather! It’s crazy how much difference a week in one’s life can make!?
Yep! Helsinki is a true Winter Wonderland! Ever since I have returned from my holidays in Croatia, I’ve been facing tons and tons of snow, very low temperatures and it was simply impossible for me to take any outfit photos. Indoor places are usually malls or cafes/ restaurants, there’re always tons of people mingling and the light is somewhat yellowish, so my chances were ZERO in getting a good material for the new outfit post.
One of my favourite songs by New Order and one of my favourite “old” classics that I can listen to over and over again without ever getting bored. Quite danceable song for this Monday morning and it totally fits my mood as I have landed in Croatia yesterday and it feels great to wake up all refreshed and with tons of wishes to tick off from my wish list! Super small things, the ones that make life beautiful, such as going to my favourite people at the Farmer’s Market to buy all of the fresh and local produce, having a coffee break in favourite cafe…. Just walking around and totally blending in with the vibe of the small city and it’s “no rush” mentality.
My love… LOVE… Such a short, yet important and BIG word. A feeling that can move mountains! It’s incredible what pure, real and deep love can do!? I also do know what lack of it can cause… What happened last Friday in Paris, France was absolutely horrible and left me in shock, but what made me even more upset is that the LACK of love, common sense and acting in the name of “religion” took away so many innocent lives. Only 2-3 days before the Paris tragedy, horrible blood was spilt in Beirut… Tomorrow it might be your city and the lives taken might be of somebody whom you LOVE, or even your own…
Hello to the new month of November! I simply can’t wrap my head around the thought that in less than two months, we’ll be celebrating Christmas!?! This IS my favourite time of the year and I’m all getting into the jolly “jingle bell” mood already now, but I still can’t believe that this crazy and life changing year is slowly coming to it’s end.
Autumn? Is that you? Most definitely yes and I’m loving it! The most beautiful Autumn that I have ever experienced in my life was here in Helsinki. Last year’s Autumn was simply magical, the whole city was covered with gorgeous Autumn colours and it was a pure joy to walk in the city’s parks and pick up the fallen leaves, bring them home and then use them as a DIY for home decor, painting project with my daughter and similar.
