It’s Thursday and we are one day closer to the weekend! I hope that the sun is shining as beautifully wherever you are, as it is in Helsinki. Warmer weather excites me because it means that soon, I will be able to wear all of the fun, bright coloured and “lighter” outfits! Continue Reading…
Whew, a week flew by without me even noticing it! I was sort of forced to take a short blogging break (wasn’t planned, but…) because prioritising things and dropping some away, was the only way I could get through the week. There were few events which I have attended, lots of work and yesterday was a photo shoot day with my friend Rita. I was very flattered to be in front of the camera and we’ve hopefully managed to wrap up a nice set of photos which I can’t wait to show you on the blog as soon as they’re ready. 🙂
Oh my, what a blissful start of new working week?! The sun is shining beautifully, temp. has started to rise up slowly and the overall vibe is as if I’m on a “natural high” of vitamin D. 😀 Continue Reading…
Do you believe in past lives? Do you believe that you had a past life, that you’re a traveller in time? I do…
Happy Monday my dear readers! I hope that your weekend went well and that it has also set you off to a productive start of the new working week. I had pretty chilled two days revolving around catching up on some work I’ve been behind with due to my exhaustion from nasty virus infection I’ve been fighting for the past two weeks.
Happy 2017 everybody!!! First post of the new year is here and I wanted to take my time writing it to make sure that I’m publishing the right material. I’m visiting Croatia at the moment and am happy to start this year by travelling and taking some well deserved time off.
I’ve spent couple of days in the capital city, Zagreb and was so happy to meet some of my oldest friends as well as have a coffee with some of my Croatian blogging colleagues. The weather is beautiful and even though it’s been cold, the bright daylight and occasional sun rays made a world of difference in how energetic and happy I feel.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year they say… I couldn’t but notice this weekend that magic has been bit “thrown” aside and the craziness of shopping everything and anything, pushing in the overcrowded shops and such has taken over everybody… Everywhere!
While I’m “guilty” of shopping last minute for the Christmas presents and thinking of people whom I love and what I want them to receive on these holidays… I had to just stop for a moment and think of what is it that Christmas is all about? What is the true essence of it?
For some reason, the past week I’ve come across two big contrasts in people’s personalities: the kindness, humbleness as well as pretentiousness, egoism and no compassion for others. My brain and soul are of such kind which never stop thinking, feeling, wondering and live through everything 100%, so the processing of some people and situations might take a while for me… This time of the year, just a little bit before Christmas is when I’m more than ever sensitive to cold, be it from the weather or from the people’s personalities, both get to me strongly.
As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, the snow has arrived to Finland and we’ve been enjoying some brightness and Winter fun ( read: sliding through slippery streets, making first snowman, putting on 4-5 layers of clothes 😀 , etc. ) but as of yesterday, we’re back to Fall like weather, warmer temperatures and pouring rain.
Something that does make me happy about this kind of weather is the styling of my daily outfits, it’s not too cold for “I couldn’t care less how I look like” outfits, but it’s perfectly “chilly” to be more playful and creative with my combos.
I’m starting this Monday with a bit different post by introducing you to Happiness Boutique, an online destination for unique and accessible jewellery. Happiness boutique’s main aim is to bring you their two biggest inspirations: fashion and happiness in one place.
