Valentine’s Day

February 11, 2016

Good Friday morning everybody! I would like to thank you all for the feedback on my previous post. I have read every single comment and some of them were absolutely wonderful because they were honest, insightful and you have opened up/ got engaged in the discussion which was the point of the whole post.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts as well as the advices, they are all very much appreciated! I’m still trying to reply back to everyone, so sorry if it’s taken some time to do that. 🙂

Valentine’s Day! Yep, it’s already here and this Sunday will be an extra sweet one thanks to Valentine’s! 🙂 I have never been the person that gave much attention to this particular day, esp. back to when I was single, it was just a “bad reminder” of everybody being super in love and me not really having roses growing and little hearts popping out of my eyes. 😀

I do understand and like this day much better nowadays, but I still think that it’s been too monetized and blown out of proportion that it looses it’s main point – to celebrate love and give out love! I like the way we celebrate it in Finland. The whole day is more of a “Friend’s Day” rather than a couple’s day.

To love and be loved in return are the biggest blessings one can have in their life, so if you can count even one person that you love and that loves you as much back, you’re a very happy human being! In modern day life, it seems so hard to have a real, deep and pure love towards somebody, be it your friend or partner, but when you do give out this kind of love and if you’re able and open to receive the same, you are a very rich person and you should cherish those feelings and people more than anything. 🙂

Have a great weekend everybody!!

I’m wearing: Shoes – Asos, Blouse and dress – Zara, Coat – Max Mara, Earrings – HOH1960, Bag – &otherstories, Bracelets – HOH1960 & J Crew

    Kaput, cipeleeeee… ajmo opet… KAPUUUT, CIPELEEEE <3 <3 <3 Prekrasna si i ja sam naprosto preoduševljena ovm kombinacijom. Definitivno nešto što bih vrlo rado nosila. 🙂 Baš si stajliš od glave do pete! 🙂

    Slažem se da ljubav treba slaviti cijelu godinu i nije da padam u nesvjest radi Valentinova, ali isto tako mi nije jasna ta ljudska netrpeljivost prema istome u posljednjih nekoliko godina… slavi ako hoćeš i kako hoćeš ili nemoj uopće i pusti također druge da čine što žele… ah! 🙂

    Kako god, želim ti lijepu nedjelju u krugu najdražih! :*

      AAAA!!! Koja si ti kraljica?!!! Stvarno, evo jedan naklon i veliko hvala za ovakve divne komplmente!
      Da, meni isto nije jasno zasto je tako velika polemika oko Valentinova?! Kako sam i sama napisala, nije
      bas da mi je “kul” sto je toliko komercijalan i izforsiran taj dan, ali isto tako mi nije ni Halloween jasan,
      pa opet izvucem najbolje iz oba dana i ucinim ih “svojima”. Saljem ti puno pusa!

    Ajme što ti je slatka haljinica, još u kombinaciji s ovom romantičnom košuljicom…ma preslatka si! 🙂
    Želim ti sjajan vikend u društvu prijatelja i obitelji, apslutno potpisujem da je ljubav nešto što se slavi tokom čitave godine (u svim njenim oblicima, ne samo prema boljim polovicama), a što se tiče Valentinova, mene za njega nikad nije bila briga, dan kao svaki drugi 🙂

    • Reply natali karppinen February 14, 2016 at 9:31 AM

      Heheh, joj kako si mi sad ulijepsala dan s ovim komentarom!
      Uzivaj u vikendu draga a ljubav slavimo u svim njenim oblicima svaki dan jer je to nesto najlijepse, najvece
      i pokrece cijeli svijet. 🙂

    Love the post and agree with the points you made. ‘Friends day’ sounds so much better than couples day (“,) especially for single folk like myself. Your coat is lovely and you look great x

    Todella ihana laukku! Pitänee tarkastella toi &Other Stories lähemmin, muistan muutama vuosi sitten kun ekaa kertaa heidän vaatteitaan kattelin ajattelin että ne on H&M vaatteita mutta vaan kalliimmalla. (Henkka Maukka kun sen omistaa). Mutta pitänee katsella uudestaan koska toi laukku kyllä näyttää tosi laadukkaalta! 🙂

    Such a pretty dress and I love the shoes. I’m not into Valentine’s day in a big way either, much too commercial. Great video and your daughter speaks such perfect English. Do you speak to her in English all the time? xoxoxo
