Are you looking for the best fair isle sweater? Look no more, I have found THE one and it’s this beautiful piece by JCrew which has been sold out pretty much everywhere. If you would have asked me couple of years ago, I wouldn’t come near a fair isle sweater as that wasn’t something I could picture myself wearing even at coziness of my own home, but little did I know that in Winter 2017/2018 I’ll be all into wearing a fair isle sweater and even get super excited seeing DHL guy delivering it! 😀 Continue Reading…
I’m a girl which never takes a break… I will always keep on going at all costs. Heck, sometimes I don’t even take a break to cry and have a proper “breakdown” moment, but I deal with everything on the go or by swiping it “under the carpet” until I can, at some point, deal with it.
I just ride, ride and ride, I succeed, I fail, I get disappointed or I get proud, about myself or about people which I encounter… But I feel that I never take a proper moment to just “be” and process everything that’s happened, good or bad, people which I’ve met, etc.
Good Monday morning everybody! How was your weekend? I hope that you had as much fun and great times as I did. I feel that I was all over the place ever since September started and I’ve been very happy and thankful for that, because I’ve met some incredibly amazing and inspiring people, I’ve spent lots of time with friends, attended some cool events and did tons of work as well as my conceptual photography shooting/ planning and agreeing on the future shoots. I’m set on having an exhibition next year in Spring and if everything goes well and as planned, creating it will keep me very occupied and hopefully on the top of my creative game until the end of this year.
Pepsi girl… That’s it, that’s where any connection between me and Pepsi or me and fizzy drinks stops. I used to be into all those drinks when I was little up until I was about 19, which means that for the past decade I didn’t have any, not even when going out and drinking some… ahem, alcohol. 😀 But I do love these kind of simple, loose “Pepsi girl” t-shirts which you can style however you want and I chose to style it in a sporty way.
Pepsi tyttö… siihen se jääkin sitten se minun ja Pepsin tai oikeastaan minkä tahansa poreilevan juoman suhde. Rakastin vastaavia juomia, silloin kun olin nuori, tai siihen asti kun täytin noin 19 vuotta. Mikä tarkoittaa sitä etten ole nauttinut yhtään limua viimeiseen vuosikymmeneen. En myöskään bailatessa ja nauttiessani…öhm alkoholia. Mutta rakastan näitä yksinkertaisia, löysiä “Pepsi tyttö” t-paitoja. Joita voi stailata ihan kuinka tahansa. Ja minä päätin stailata sen urheilullisella tavalla.
That’s how I feel like about my daughter… We are one heart in two bodies. Ever since she was born, my world has completely changed and has never been the same. Each day, esp. since she has grown up a bit and is away at kindergarten or at a playdate, I feel that half of my heart is “gone” with her. Whenever she’s hurt or sad, I feel it double as she does… If she’s happy and smiling, I’m double as happy as she is.
I feel like this world is the most beautiful place ever each time I see her sunlike wide smile and diamond spark in her eyes shine the beauty and pureness of her soul from the inside. Becoming a mom, I didn’t take it as something that makes me somewhat better, smarter or more important than any other woman around, but being a mom def. has thought me so much about life, feelings, worries, etc. more than any other “role” in this life could. Children are our biggest teachers and they always speak the truth, no matter if we like to hear it or not. As much as I like to hear my daughter tell me how she thinks that I’m the best mom ever and that she hopes to become like me someday, I also don’t like to hear when she complains at times that I work so much and we haven’t managed to play a board game we were supposed to play 2 days ago. If anybody can quickly shake me up and make me rethink my daily life, habits, choices and “forces me” to get my time management and scheduling in order, then it’s her.
She also thought me, or should I say has reminded me to see the world through child’s eyes more often… Something that I can pass by many times on daily basis and not see it’s beauty, she will spot it immediately and see so much in perhaps, so little… Taking a moment to really “look up” and around yourself just the way that she does, made me remember what’s the core of life… To see beauty everywhere, to be happy about everything and anything. As long as we’re breathing, as long as we’re jumping in the muddy puddles, as long as we’re enjoying the sun that’s shining while laying in the park on the freshly grown green grass, as long as we stuff our faces in ice cream cones and laugh together, as long as we hold onto those precious little moments that make life so special, we’ll forget about any worries we might’ve had.
Life can be so simple, so real and so good, only if we change the way we see things and how we act or react to what happens to us on daily basis.
They say that a woman has always been a woman and she will forever be a woman, but mother, mother has been born when the child is born… The moment that birth cord has been cut, one heart has been split in two newborn bodies, one body of a child and another one of a mother. None of them existed up until that moment. That is so true! I have and always will be a woman, the one that loves unconditionally, the one that is silly, the one that is vulnerable and strong at the same time… The one that is bit crazy and different but has pure heart and a soul that hold so much inside… The one that wants to inspire and help, the one that wants to go out with her friends and have fun… But I’m also a mother… Something I never thought I’d be, something I have never been even imagining what it feels or looks like to be a mother. I’m a mother that I hope my daughter will be proud of someday and will look up to me when she decides to give birth to two bodies of one heart…
Happy Mother’s Day to me and to every single beautiful mom that I know in real or this “virtual” world!
Have a good Monday everybody!
I’m wearing: Sneakers – New Balance, Jeans – Tiger of Sweden, Sweater – Max Mara, Kimono – Asos, Bag & bracelet – Balenciaga, Sunglasses – Chloe
Hello my dear readers! How are you doing? I’ve been having a very weird, heavy week and I’m pretty much glad that the weekend is here. I’m planning to completely relax, organise my schedule and work for the upcoming week and eat some good food in a company of my friends.
I’m having a huge toothache this morning and it’s not a nice feeling, esp. because I have work assignments the whole day, but I’ll survive by taking some mild painkillers and drinking my chamomile tea. 🙂
I can’t believe that this is the last weekend of April?! Next weekend we’ll be celebrating 1st of May already and I’m totally set on having the best Summer ever, so I better start making my plans for that too. Oh! I might have not mentioned you that I’ll be going (in May) to Croatia for my friend’s wedding!! I’m so excited about it and can’t wait to share such a special moment with her and some other dear friends which I don’t see as often as I’d love to.
Do you have any upcoming weddings? How about your Summer plans? Did you start planning already? 🙂
I’m sharing 5 favourite photos of this week which I’ve snapped on my Instagram and if you wish to follow my daily adventures, please do follow me here!!
Good Easter Monday everybody! How is your long weekend going? I hope that you ate well, got some rest and that you had a chance to spend quality time with your family and friends. I have and it did set me up for a good start this week. There’s a lot of work to be done and many errands need to be taken care of, so no time for procrastinating known as daydreaming in my case. 🙂
Hello Wednesday! Nice to see you, you look very promising, let’s see what you have “in store” for me! 🙂 How are you my dear readers? Can you believe that we’re already approaching the end of February and that the Winter months are almost over?
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 Monday morning everybody!! How are you all doing? I hope that the Winter didn’t strike you as cold as it did here in Helsinki. Almost over the night the temperatures have dropped down for 7-10 degrees and we also got the first snow. Even though it melted away really quickly, it was still nice to be reminded that there’re only 4 weeks left until the Christmas. Yesterday was an opening of so called Christmas street in the city centre, when all of the Christmas lights and decorations were put up and the whole city now looks incredibly charming and festive!
