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. 🙂
Monday morning… My alarm clock didn’t beep yet and there’re almost two hours until I have to wake up. Do I still try to sleep a bit or do I get up and enjoy some “me time” which I haven’t been indulging in for what it feels like forever? Hm… Screw that princess, beauty sleep, I’m getting up!
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…
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.
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.
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.
Travelling… Something I’ve been a “fan” of since the first trip I ever took and it was when I was only few months old. 😀 First trip which I clearly remember was when I was about 8-9 years old and have travelled to Moscow, Russia with my mom and sister to visit our Russian family and relatives.
My mom always said that I was the easiest kid to travel with because you could literally “pack” me into a suitcase and send me off anywhere and I’d be happy! I was such an explorer since the early age and even though I have travelled a lot in the past 29 years, I still haven’t seen even a glimpse of what I want to see around the world.
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?
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.
