Good Friday everybody!! I just couldn’t keep on writing post after post without actually saying much about myself and what I’ve been feeling like lately, so I thought that this Friday would be a perfect day to bring up a subject that I’ve been thinking about a lot and am SURE that a lot of girls who read my blog have been either raised similarly or have faced similar situations to mine in their lives…
Good morning my dear readers! I hope that this week has been going well for you and that wherever you are the weather is in full Autumn’s bliss! 🙂 I can’t believe how fast it gets dark over here in Helsinki?! Each day seems to last shorter and shorter. Driving home yesterday around 4 pm felt as if it would have been 8pm instead. When the weather is gloomy, days are short and we’re all lacking colors around us, I try to not forget that it’s more than welcome to throw on some colorful clothes on before leaving my home.
Hello to the new month of November! I simply can’t wrap my head around the thought that in less than two months, we’ll be celebrating Christmas!?! This IS my favourite time of the year and I’m all getting into the jolly “jingle bell” mood already now, but I still can’t believe that this crazy and life changing year is slowly coming to it’s end.
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.
Wooosh! That’s the sound of this week flying by! It’s been a very intensive week and I’m barely holding all of the “hooks” in my hands. There’s so much to do, work on, fulfil and I’m not even going to start with complaining on how my flat looks like a whole zoo of animals ran through it… Several times! 😀
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. 🙂
Summer’s end? After not really having a Summer in Helsinki, August was absolutely wonderful! The sun kept on shining every day so far, the days were perfectly warm and the outdoor life was buzzing like as if we ‘re somewhere much more south in Europe than we are.
Hello my dear readers! Good Wednesday morning to you! I’m up early and am soon gonna get ready to head to the World Market that is visiting my city for the next couple of days. It’s an event perfect for foodies and “hunters” for special, homemade/ handmade things such as jams, accessories, souvenirs, etc.
