How to style Chanel ballerinas for Spring? One of my favourite Spring shoes are definitely ballerinas and I have about 6 pairs of just Chanel ones and another 10 pairs of different colour, pattern, designer and non designer ones in my shoe closet. Yep! I think that by now I might know how to style my Chanel ballerinas or any other ones too. Continue Reading…
Granny shoes? I have never thought that I would find myself styling granny shoes! I do love ladylike, classy outfits but granny shoes? That’s a whole new world to me. 🙂 I am always up for a good fashion challenge so I couldn’t pass this pair of beauties and try to style them in “my way”. This outfit has been completely built around these shoes and I hope that you will like the outcome as much as I did. Continue Reading…
Happy month of May everybody!! How was your weekend? Did you had a nice May Day celebrations? I had a chill weekend which consisted of long walks, “sucking up” all of the sunshine ( weather was incredible ) and having an ice cream by the beach. I went to Sea Life as well since I love the sea world and it’s creatures. 🙂 Sea Life always makes me calm…
I love the idea and feeling of new, fresh beginnings and every time, when the 1st of month comes around, I feel that I have a chance to press that invisible “restart” button, sort out my thoughts, have a conversation with my inner being and get a clearer picture of the path I’ll be taking on that month(s).
I feel that the time which we’re given in this life is a gift and a curse at the same time. It’s a gift, because if we use our time right, we can do so much, we can make a big difference in the world eventually and we can def. someday die knowing that we’ve done it and seen it all… But if we don’t use the time that we’ve been given to the max, we’ll always feel somehow “lost”, uncomplished and as if the time just slipped out of our hands. E’ll wake up someday when we’re suddenly 10 years older and will have no idea where did the time in between pass by.
Writing down 5 things I’m thankful for and 5 things that I want to accomplish/ do each month does help me see and feel that I’m using my “fresh start” correctly or they give me perspective on what I could and want to do more of in the next month.
Couple of years ago I had the attitude of “there’s still time” and a lot of days were taken for granted because of that. I only now see that the time we’ve been given is so precious, uncontrollable and it might end tomorrow, so hitting the refresh or restart button every 1st of the month has proven to be a very good thing for me.. It also made me much more humble in sense that I’ve learned to find the beauty everywhere around me, in the smallest of the things. Hitting the restart button made me see that when you do a lot of little, but significant things each month, you’ll end up having a year that will equal the value of 5 years of being “lost in translation”.
Go, hit that restart button today and make this month of May the best one so far. 🙂

Yep! Helsinki is a true Winter Wonderland! Ever since I have returned from my holidays in Croatia, I’ve been facing tons and tons of snow, very low temperatures and it was simply impossible for me to take any outfit photos. Indoor places are usually malls or cafes/ restaurants, there’re always tons of people mingling and the light is somewhat yellowish, so my chances were ZERO in getting a good material for the new outfit post.
One of my favourite songs by New Order and one of my favourite “old” classics that I can listen to over and over again without ever getting bored. Quite danceable song for this Monday morning and it totally fits my mood as I have landed in Croatia yesterday and it feels great to wake up all refreshed and with tons of wishes to tick off from my wish list! Super small things, the ones that make life beautiful, such as going to my favourite people at the Farmer’s Market to buy all of the fresh and local produce, having a coffee break in favourite cafe…. Just walking around and totally blending in with the vibe of the small city and it’s “no rush” mentality.
