4 outfit ideas for Spring

Hi girls!
How are you doing? Are you all on your Easter holidays?
I had a nice and easy going day yesterday which felt good
for a change from all the crazy busy and stressful days that
I had lately.
Today I woke up to a beautiful, sunny day so I'm planning to
spend the most of it outside and soak up the sun's energy :)

Warmer and sunnier days make me crave for lighter and more
colourful clothes. I can't wait to finally store my Winter coat away
together with all the boots and scarves... I'm after all a "sea child",
so the less clothes I need to put on, the better :)

Here're 4 ideas which I've put up using Polyvore, my favourite tool
to create collages like these ones.
I hope you like my suggestions on what to wear this Spring and if
you do have your favourite outfit, please let me know in the comments,
I'm very interested to hear your opinions.

Have a beautiful Saturday and a happy and relaxed Easter tomorrow!

Outfit post - Balance

Good Thursday afternoon !!
I have started this morning by going to the gym and that
felt so good.
I love to start my day as productive as possible, so after the
gym I have sent a bunch of letter invitations to my exhibition.
I can't believe that there's a little bit over a week left until the
opening. Exciting!!!

All of the prints are ready and I got to check through all of them
yesterday. Since everything looked perfect, photos are now in
final, mounting period.
Can't wait to put them all up on the gallery's walls.

Biggest daily newspaper in Finland Iltalehti wrote about my
upcoming exhibition and that was such a nice surprise which
I woke up to yesterday morning. Universe, please keep them
coming my way, I have no complaints :D

Just a quick note about my outfit... These sneakers are the most
comfortable sneakers ever! I'm not kidding, when I walk in them,
it feels as if I'm walking on clouds!
I'm totally embracing the latest trend of combining casual or less
casual outfits with sneakers.

Uh, now I remembered that I need to get myself a pair of shoes
for the opening of my exhibition! Good thing is that Shopbop are
having a sale going on ( one more day only ), so I think that I'll
click-order something from there :)

Have a nice day everybody!

I'm wearing: Sneakers - New Balance, Jeans - Tiger of Sweden,
Jacket - Asos, Blouse - Samuji, Sweater - Burberry, Bag - Celine,
Bracelet - Balenciaga

Outfit post - Trapeze

Hello Tuesday and hello everybody!
I'm catching a moment to write this post before a nice
pampering time with my sister.
We're going for a full time girly day - going for a coffee,
visit to the hairdresser and some little retail therapy :)

This whole year has been so stressful for me and I barely
had any breather, so it feels great to have a day like this one.
Just relax and do something nice for myself.

Yesterday was a very important day for me. I have put all of the
photos for the upcoming exhibition into print and in 2 days I'll
already be able to check the prints.

I have also tested out a highly hyped about restaurant Bronda and
it met all of my expectations! The food was delicious and the interior
was completely different than what I'm used to see in Helsinki's
I can def. recommend you this place if you're visiting Helsinki and want
to have a delicious meal.

Finally, I want to introduce you to my new Trapeze friend which I got
last weekend and I can't get enough of it! It's perfect bag for me!

Enjoy this day girls!

I'm wearing: Bag - Celine, Coat - Isabel Marant, Scarf - COS,
Shoes - Calvin Klein, Ring - HOH1960, Bracelet - Balenciaga,
Jeans - Acne, Blouse - Gani, Blazer - Rachel Zoe

Outfit post - Mine

Well, look at that! It's already the end of week and
the weekend is here. I've had the craziest week in a long
time and I'm glad that tomorrow it will be over...
I'm having a final photo shoot tomorrow for my upcoming
exhibition and it feels so exciting and nerve wrecking at the
same time.

I had a photo shoot yesterday as well and I'm so happy with
how the photos turned out. I will share them with you in one
of my next posts.

Yesterday was also a very important day because I had an
interview for a big women's magazine here in Finland and I'm
so happy with how it went. The story will be out in 2-3 weeks
so when I have some scans, I'll share them too :)

Tomorrow is all about the already mentioned photo shoot and
the evening is reserved for Indie Days blog awards.
It's my 1st time attending any awards regarding blog world and
I'm very excited to attend.

What are your plans for this weekend?

I'm wearing: Boots - Steve Madden, Coat - Burberry, Scarf - Kenzo,

Outfit post - Malene

Good Tuesday afternoon!!
I just finished my lunch and am sipping on my tea while
writing this blog post. This day started quite early for me and
it will be the same for all of the remaining days of this week, but
I'm not complaining.
I had a completely down and "no-light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel"
kind of evening, but today I woke up very energised and got my
fighting spirit back which was very nice because I need to believe
in myself and my dreams. If I won't, who will??

Breakfast at my favourite place, a walk to the gallery where I'll
exhibit in less than 3 weeks and taking care of some errands, def.
made up for an annoying Monday meltdown :)

I'm getting my exhibition's invitations tomorrow and I can't wait to
send them out! It's getting so exciting!!
I also have a very important interview in two days and I'm very much
looking forward to that. I'll make sure to share scans with you once
it's published and all that.

Take care everyone and enjoy your day!

I'm wearing:
Coat & scarf - By Malene Birger, Bag - Givenchy, Top - Burberry,
Cardigan - Free People, Necklace & ring - Deni design, Jeans - Zara

My March favourites

Hello my dear readers!
How was your weekend? Mine flew by in a second and I did everything
I could to have it as easy as possible, since I have a crazy busy working
week ahead.

Today is such a rainy, cloudy and I feel completely unmotivated.
Since it's bad weather and taking outfit photos is not an option for
today, I've opted to write about my March favourites.
I'm bit late, but I still wanted to put this kind of easy going post and
also share my opinion with you on certain products that you might
be interested in too :)

Here we go:


-Coconut body milk
-Coconut body butter
-Coconut body fragrance

I got all of these on my trip to Stockholm last month at their Ahlens mall.
I love Laura Mercier cosmetics! I'm all about her primer and I couldn't wait
to try these body products too. I love anything with coconut, it's my favourite
scent/ smell ever, but I'm also very picky on how coconut products should smell
and so far only Victoria's Secret products and now I can say Laura Mercier's products
satisfy my likings :) The body milk which I use in the shower is the most luxurious
thing ever! Not just that it leaves gorgeous scent on my skin, but it also leaves a nice
silky feeling on it too. I couldn't praise more these products, they're so worth the money.


-Black vanilla diffuser sticks
-Pure gardenia diffuser sticks

We don't have Zara Home in Helsinki but luckily I could pick these
on Stockholm trip as well. I fell in love with Zara Home Black vanilla home
fragrance over a year ago when I first bought it on my trip in Moscow.
It's seriously the most nicest home fragrance ever! That vanilla is just divine!

I still have to test Gardenia, but from smelling it at the store, I thought that it
will give a nice and fresh scent to my home in the Summer.


-Tea rose

I'm the biggest tea drinker ever! I literally drink litres of tea every day.
My favourite ones are green flavoured teas from Pukka or Yogi tea brands,
but I couldn't pass on getting the rose tea from my favourite place - Laduree.
I'm not drinking much of this tea, because I don't want to use it too fast since
I'm not sure when I'll get to visit Laduree next time.


-Moisture prep

I got this from Sephora store in Stockholm and I got it because
it was a highly spoken of product. I wanted to try it out to see
what's the deal and so far I like it a lot. It's not in the same range as
some of the products that I'm using from for instance La Mer or
Estee Lauder, but it does great job for not many bucks.


-Scalp treatment

This little spray is a miracle! I have already used up one little bottle
like this one before and I couldn't wait to start using it again.
If you have problems with your scalp like I do, either if it's dandruff
or you have tension feeling or if your hair is just not growing as fast as
you think it should, this spray is the easiest way to heal your scalp and
it actually does work what it says it will.


Scented candles for home... I don't have to say much, just
that together with Dyptique, these are my favourites :)

YSL nailpolish

-Beige Leger is the shade and I'm completely obsessed with it.
It's perfect colour for me right now and I would recommend it to
every girl that doesn't want to put too girly and then again not to
"serious" nail polish on when out and about, running your errands and similar :)


-Hydrating lip balm
Great product, in great shade (Plum punch) which leaves a nice and hydrating
feeling on your lips. I love it! It also reminds me of similar product from Clarins,
but I like this one better as it's not as heavy as Clarins one.
