Good Friday everybody! It’s the end of the working week and I must admit that I’m happy for the weekend to be here. This week was a very busy but thankfully, productive one. I didn’t sleep much, had still fights with my health issues but I did my best to block the stress as much as possible. Right now, I feel that my girl boss senses are “giving up” and I’m gonna embrace the laziness and indulge in some quality “me time” over the weekend. Continue Reading…
Alone… Lonely… Two alike yet very different words. To be alone or to be lonely isn’t the same thing. When I was a little kid, I used to be super shy and not very social person, so many times I did feel lonely even though I have grown up in a big family with 3 other siblings.
From my usual “Good morning everybody!”, I am going to start this post by writing good afternoon dear people from all over the world who stop by daily to check out this blog and which new posts I have prepared for you. After being completely “delusional” for over a week and fighting a super nasty virus, today is the first day that I feel much better and can think clearly again.
Good morning my dear readers! I can’t believe that a whole another year is coming to a full circle – to it’s end. Today is the last day, less than 24 hours left until we enter new year, 2017! What are your plans for tonight? Are you staying in and keeping it low key, maybe going out for dinner or are you up for a full night of partying with friends? 🙂 I’m doing it “grandma” style this year since I’m sick with flu and am going for a trip so I try to get well and stay warm and still. 😀
Good Friday everybody! How are you doing? Are you excited about Christmas? I’m almost done shopping for all of the Christmas presents, I have sent out all of my Christmas cards and am impatiently waiting for the night of 24th! 😀 I don’t have any big or super interesting plans for the Christmas day(s), just a lot of chilling, listening to my fave Christmas album by M.Buble, some good food, mulled wine and the best of company around should seal the deal. 😀
Look at that, less than 2 weeks left until Christmas! The countdown is “on”! As I have already mentioned, I’ve been loving seeing the Christmas lights, decorations, etc. all over the city and am still in the process of decorating my own home for Christmas too. We got a small Christmas tree with some girly ornaments and all that needs to be done is to take some chilled back moment with my daughter to put it all up nicely.
If you wish to follow my daily adventures and small highlights of any random day, do follow me on @natakar Instagram profile. There will be also great giveaways starting as of today, so keep your eyes on it! 🙂 One of the things I’ll be giving away is a star of today’s outfit, but I won’t reveal it all just yet. 😀
Good Sunday morning my darlings! Seeing that you’ve been loving my “Sunday cafe” column and the idea of introducing you to various young and inspiring individuals living in Finland who’re not originally from here is very flattering and motivating. I’m happy to bring in more posts/ guests to my Sunday cafe.
Everybody, please say hello to Jad! It’s been less than a year ago that I’ve met this precious jewel of a friend! Pretty quickly we’ve realised that we had not only many friends in common, but also a lot of personality, dreams and interests that were in common too. 🙂
I’m truly thankful to have Jad in my life… He’s one of those friends I’d “put my hand in the fire” for! Read on what Jad has to say about himself:
Time… Took me by my wings, kept me places and surrounded by the souls I was not prepared to travel to or meet. Time also brought me to places and got me to meet souls who have been such an essence of my life. Some places and people will make you feel as if the time has stopped or at least you forget about checking your watch and can barely hear that little ticking reminding us that each tick-tock makes our star dust made bodies older and more vulnerable, closer to it’s expiration date.
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.
Friday always seems to come faster than I’m ready for it! They say that the older you get, the days seem to fly by in a blink of an eye and I… I have to agree with this theory. I can’t believe that end of the year is here and that we have experienced the first snow already AND the festive season is in it’s full swing! Pre-Christmas parties are taking place “left and right”, the city has been decorated in Christmas ornaments and lights… Some people have even put up their Christmas trees!!
