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.
No alarm clock ringing… I’m slowly waking up naturally and making my way out of the bed to the kitchen. I’m putting my water to warm up and cutting up the lemon. I’m opening the windows and the sun shines beautifully, birds are chirping, pigeons are gagging and the locals are having random conversations just under the window. Continue Reading…
Due to quite a few sunny and warm days in the past two weeks, Helsinki got a whole new “coating” of Spring-ish beauty! 🙂 I can’t hide my excitement about the sunshine and much longer days. I almost had to pinch myself when checking at my watch and realising that the daylight lasts past 4 pm. Continue Reading…
Just like Sia sings in her latest hit song, I feel unstoppable today! End of the last year, just before my trip to Croatia I have felt completely “squeezed out”, as if I’ve done and gave everything I had and there was no “juice” left in me anymore. Taking a month long break from almost anything and everything and a change of scenery did wonders for me. Ever since I came back two weeks ago, I’ve been feeling very inspired. I feel that I got my drive back and an aura of being unstoppable seems to be surrounding me every day!
Good morning my dear readers! How are you doing? How was your weekend? I have to admit that daytime savings and switching our clocks one hour backwards has messed me up a little bit. I’ve been feeling very tired and “lost”. I hope to get back to normal asap. Maybe couple of sunny and warm days might help! 😀
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.
Fall is definitely in full swing here in Helsinki! I’m more and more often waking up to rainy mornings or walking back home in the evening while the rain is “washing up” the city’s streets. As much as I love my sunshine and relaxing time by the beach, I also love the feeling of freshness and new beginning that the Fall brings. I don’t know how or why but I suddenly feel so much more creative, focused and find it easy to take on any work task. How about you my readers? Do you like Fall and why?
I woke up to a sunny day, so I’ll try to get the most out of the sunshine and outdoor activities today. I work indoors a lot, every single day, but I always make sure to find at least an hour in a day to spend my time outside, walking, breathing in the fresh air and such. I have some errands to run and one of them is the visit to the Farmer’s Market for fresh veggies and fruits, so it’s a perfect excuse to walk there instead of having to drive there. I’ll easily get that one hour of “movement” in by doing this. 🙂
Oh hi Monday! You surely come way too fast! 🙂 I do like Mondays and a feeling of a new week ( or day ) starting, but Mondays are always a reminder for me of everything I was planning to do and didn’t had time to do, everything I needed to get done and have postponed… Comes Monday and I remember that there’s never enough time to do everything unless there’s a real good schedule/ organisation involved.
House of blues! What a legendary bar / concert venue / restaurant it is!? We took these outfit photos in front of the restaurant side of the building and it served as a perfect backdrop to my laid-back, boho-ish outfit. 🙂
