Outfit post - Then you learn

Good Monday morning everyone!
I've just finished eating my breakfast in bed and am
soon going to the gym to get some good workout done.
I'm also meeting my friend later on and have tons of things
to take care of in between, so I better get going :).

Last Friday I went out for dinner with friends. We went to a
Japanese restaurant Koto and have enjoyed lots of great traditional
meals as well as sushis.
This is the outfit which I wore that evening and we shot it in one
of my favourite parks. I love parks, I always feel at peace whenever I'm
in one and some of them hold special magic such as Bryant Park in NYC
or one on Chistoprudny Bulvar in Moscow.

Weekend was quite hard having to face some facts and make decisions,
more about that later on when I'm ready to share more, but the point which
I wanted to bring up is that no matter which curve balls life throws at you,
never give up, always wake up, show up and do your best.
Those who believe and are persistent in following their dreams will get there
sooner or a bit later but they will reach their goals and see how worth it's to
believe in yourself, even when many odds are against you.

How was your weekend dear readers? I hope that you've had a great one
and are ready to kick ass this week! :)

Outfit post - Electric night

So we meet again Friday...
Today I don't feel like writing much... Instead, I want to 
just take a moment and be grateful... Be thankful for the 
smallest things which are BIG things. I constantly need to 
remind myself that small things are the ones that life is 
built from. Chase is always sweeter than the catch, right? 

I'm thankful that I had good dentist visit, that I have spent 
time with my sister who also happens to be my best friend, 
that I have a daughter which is the most precious anything and 
everything in my life, that I have this funny man by my side who 
loves me with all of my faults, that we've had prolonged "summer" in 
Finland, that I'm about to go for a sushi date with my friends 
this evening... There's so much to be thankful for in only last 
couple of days, but since I never put it on paper or in the blog 
as I did now, I very often forget how much there is to be thankful 
for on daily basis.

Have a fabulous weekend everybody and stay safe!

Outfit post - Me and mini me

Here's to the last Wednesday of Summer.
Can you believe that in only 5 days we'll enter the Fall officially?
I even saw a quote saying that there're only 15 more Fridays
until Christmas!? Isn't this crazy? When did this whole year gone

I'm definitely feeling a good wind in my back to get more active and
do as many things as I can to progress as much as I can, privately and
December will be all about relaxing, spending time with family and
being in this magical holiday mood, so October and November better
be very exciting and active :D

I'm once again just about to head out to the dentist. This is my last tooth
that needs to get my temporary fillings removed and then next week I'll
get the permanent ones put in and I'm finally done with all of the pain
and anaesthetics. Wish me luck girls!

When it comes to this outfit post, I just had to add a little guest outfit
as well, since my beautiful little princess wanted to pose and show her
outfit of the day too! :D

Have a great day everyone!

Outfit post - Track, crush and prevail

Good morning world!!
How was your weekend my dear readers?
My weekend was all about some soul searching, indulging in
long walks outside ( we had a very sunny weekend ) and some
lovely Thai food, Masaman curry with veggies being my current
obsession :)

The outfit which I'm showing you in this post was my uniform over
the weekend. I felt feminine, comfortable and yet very rock n'roll.
This is also the first time I'm showing you my Pandora box by Givenchy
which I got at Luxbag, a must visit store if you're even in Helsinki and want
to do some quality shopping.
I'm absolutely in love with the bag, it's so spacious and so well designed that
I know without a doubt will last me for years.
That's def. one of the best things when investing in more pricy bags, if you
take good care of them, they'll last you a long time :)

I'm expecting a UPS package with Californication, season 7 and Sheila E.'s
book which I can't wait to start reading it as it will be filled with lots of amazing
stories from her times with Prince and I'm sure that I'll read this book in one
sitting :)

Last week I've managed to go to gym only twice, so this morning is reserved
for some gym time. I've got lots of great new music on my iPod which is great
for workout so it should be easy peasy to get the workout done :)

Have a great day everyone!

I'm wearing: Ballerinas - Vagabond, Jeans & blouse - Mango, Bag - Givenchy,

Outfit post - The boy

Good Wednesday everybody!!
I got up early, had my breakfast and am soon going to the gym.
I've been at the dentist yesterday and after that I've been pretty
much in miserable state for the rest of the day + the whole day
has been a rainy one, so... I'm in a need of a good workout and
getting my spirit back :)

I'm looking forward to meeting with my sister today. Visit to our
favourite coffee place and some window shopping always helps
to feel better too!

I'm in the middle of looking for a place to stay in NYC during
my studies there this Fall. Can't wait to go to my dream city
and learn more about what I love to do the most - photography.

Sometimes it's so hard to believe in yourself, see past the obstacles
and see the whole picture in future tense, the place where you want
to be. I know that they say to concentrate on now and how far you've
come, which is great and I get that, but I'm always looking forward
to future, always looking towards what I want to achieve next, what I'm
going to do next... That's what keeps me going and keeps me "hungry".
I don't want to reach the "satisfaction" level just yet. Working towards
a dream/ goal is a huge gift itself. :)

Have a fabulous day my dear readers!

Outfit post - Cyanide

Good morning everybody!!
How was your weekend? Mine was very short, but
very sweet. I did have pretty "weird" week as I've been
in some pain because of my teeth being fixed and waiting
for the proper fillings to be put in in two days.
Eating was such a challenge, as I can only chew on the left
side of my mouth and only very soft foods, nothing too crunchy.
We did get some lovely thai food take away and oh it was so delicious.
I have also went out with my sister to check out a show of one rock
band and it was great to have our girly time/ night out.
Sunday was all about just taking it easy, going out for a long walk,
cooking some comfort food and checking a movie at cinema.

Whole last week, we've been blessed with beautiful and sunny weather
which made me extremely happy and energised!
Here's an outfit which I wore to a date with my husband as we've celebrated
6 years of wedding anniversary.

I'm now getting ready to go to the gym and since due to flu I've skipped
two weeks of exercising, I can't even begin to tell you how much my body
has been craving the proper workout.

I'd like to wish you all a great and successful Monday!

I'm wearing: Dress, jacket & necklace - Zara, Bag - H&M - Paris F/W '13,
Sunglasses - Chanel, Ring - Deni design, Shoes - Calvin Klein

Outfit post - Golden eye

It's Thursday morning and I woke up quite tired.
I was at the dentist yesterday and we had to take out two
fillings, take tooth impressions and put in another two
temporary fillings until next week when I need to go in again
and get the permanent fillings.
Getting anaesthetics and listening to drill for 2 hours is never
fun and always serves as a good reminder that health is one of
the most important things in every person's life.
When people you love hurt/ are sick or if you're hurting and not
feeling well, pretty much nothing else matters except getting better.
These are also the moments when you see how much support of your
loved ones is priceless.

We've been having a real Fall weather over here in Helsinki. I don't
mind the chillier weather as long as we're not having insane non-stop
rains as it was the case end of August.
September brought some sun back and possibility to go for long walks
and breathe in fresh, crisp air :)

I'm preparing lots of changes for October for my photography, for my
blog, for my life... Let's see how it will all take off, but I'm keeping fingers
crossed that everything will work out just how I have envisioned it so that
I can take you on a whole new adventure with me.

I also want to express my gratitude for all of your amazing comments that
you leave on my posts. I DO read every single one of them, check out your
blogs, but I just sometimes have no time to write back/ leave a not on your
blogs too.
However, thank you for being so sweet and supportive, it makes this whole
blogging much more rewarding as I don't see it ( and it shouldn't be ) as a
one way road.

Have a great day ladies!
