Checked jumpsuit made it’s way to my closet via Zara sales which I couldn’t resist. This particular jumpsuit wasn’t something I have planned to shop for but it immediately became a piece which I couldn’t get off once I’ve put it on. 😀 Continue Reading…
Christmas holidays are here! Can you believe that there are only 5 days left until the Christmas Eve? I can’t… It’s my favourite time of the year and I can’t wrap my head around the thought that so soon we will reach the end of the year and a whole new book of 365 days is waiting to be written. How to have stress free, the best Christmas Holidays yet? I took a moment this morning to stop and think about it. Continue Reading…
Finding a perfect pair of shoes is very hard for me. Unlike most women, I actually DREAD shopping for shoes. Jewellery and bags are something I love and will never think twice when investing in them, but shoes… Oh my, such a nightmare. I’m a tall woman with a large feet ( US 11/UK9) and this combination makes it almost impossible to find great quality, stylish and elegant shoes that I’m looking for.
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…
Perfect timing… Is there such thing as being in the right place at the right time? I used to believe that there were those “perfect” moments in life that I had to wait for to happen. Those perfect moments, once they happen, my life will make more sense, wishes will come true and everything will fall into place like a perfect Tetris game bricks… Continue Reading…
Split personality… Do you know what it means and if you do, are you one of us? Do you have a split personality? Most of the times when I hear people mention “split personality” it’s described as something bad or unreliable. Continue Reading…
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.
Good Saturday my dears! I’m a day late with my usual Friday roundup but I wanted to still put out a favourites post, so I’m sharing them on this Saturday morning and hoping that you’ll like it as much as my other “5 for Friday” posts. 🙂
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.
I’m a person who barely ever watches TV. If I do watch TV then it’s usually Netflix. I never buy newspapers and I usually never read any even if I happen to see some newspapers at the cashier or at a favourite cafe.
I guess that thanks to FaceBook and my active friends, I do stay quite informed about what is going on in the world, but I take everything I read with a grain of salt and a “distant viewer” approach, meaning that I don’t take everything I read to be true, important or as dramatic as media tries to portray it to be.
Media is a powerful tool, I would say that they have the power to ruin and build the world. That is one of the reasons why I filter every news I come across and don’t allow big amounts of unnecessary information bother me. I like to live in “my own world” the one where I’m aware of what is going on around me and I do fulfil my “duties” but I also prefer to stay in that part of my own world which is ruled by love, goodness, inspiration, creativity and music. I live by the rules of heart and commands of the soul and I don’t know for better… No matter how many times I get “screwed” over for giving too much, loving too much and feeling everything so deeply… I end up hurt and upset quite many times, but I can’t live differently… I can’t “harden” my heart, be more thougher, distance myself from who I am by birth.
Ever since I was a little child, I have been led by my holy trinity of three : love, sea and music. If I had those three surrounding me, I was happy. To love and be loved in return is my motto and the biggest blessing and curse in my life. I always love too much, but so often stumble upon “closed” and hard hearts… In the past couple of years I’ve dealt with those kind of hearts too often and it all made me ask myself: “Where is the love?!” Even by filtering all of the media and information that reaches me, I can not understand all of the shootings and bombings going on all over the world. When was the spilling of blood an answer to anything? Who gives the right to a human to lift his/ her hand over the destiny of another person(s)?
Dear people… Hate, envy and darkness aren’t the roads to be followed… We all have the goodness, love and light inside of us, so the more you nurture them, the more they will prevail the dark side of us, which we all have. We are all made of yin and yang, it’s up to us which side we will choose to be. We can’t and won’t be another Mother Theresa and we don’t need to, that’s not what this article is all about, but I can not but not to realise that people have never been more as distant from each other and the source of goodness and love as they are in 2016. Situation needs to change immediately or we’ll be as good as robots and look more of a Arnold Schwarzenegger from the Terminator movie than a beautiful, sensitive and loving human race that we are supposed to be.
Peace, love and understanding… It’s not so hard to remember, acquire and spread these three words/ actions/ feelings. Let’s start today!
My heart goes out to all those affected in Beirut bombing and Florida shooting.
