Photos from my 3rd solo exhibition opening night

Hello dear readers!
How are you doing? I'm just enjoying the morning with my
breakfast and cup of tea in bed while checking my never ending
emails and trying to catch up with blogging.
I've been travelling yesterday and just spending time with my mom
and brothers at their place in Croatia.
After all of the hard work and crazy business since the beginning of
this year, I needed a small get-away and time off.
I'm already back in Helsinki in 3 days, but I'll use my "relax" time
wisely while here :)

I would like to share the photos from my exhibition opening with you.
It was such a magical day for me and I'm still in such a great mood
ever since the opening.
Lots of friends, family and invited visitors came to celebrate with me
and I was happy to offer them catered sandwiches and cupcakes from my favourite
cafe in the city KUPPI JA MUFFINI, as well as Spritz Aperol drinks mixed
by one of the best baristas in the country.

Let me know how you liked the photos and my beautiful Balenciaga dress
which I wore for the opening?! I felt like a princess wearing it :)
I got it from my favourite store LUXBAG, a MUST shopping spot when in Helsinki.

On my feet I wore Chanel ballerinas and jewellery was all by House of Harlow 1960.

Outfit post - Daydreaming in Helsinki

Beautiful, sunny and happy Monday to all of you
my dear readers!
Weather in Helsinki has been heavenly for quite some
time now! I've been on a positive high because of so much
natural D vitamin :D
Every single day has been so precious and I've been spending
them mostly outdoors. Oh, what a fantastic change after a long,
weird and "dirty" Winter!?

How was your weekend? Mine was a pure bliss!!
I had my 3rd solo exhibition opening at a gallery Galleria 4-kuus
and it was magical. I had my family, friends and invited visitors
all in one place, supporting my dream and celebrating such an important
day for me :)

I couldn't be more grateful for everything and can't wait to hear
all of the opinions from people who will visit the gallery throughout
May since the exhibition is now open to public until 23rd of May, so
please, if you visit or are living in Helsinki and love art, do stop by to
check out my works :)

The night ended at private after party with friends and we had SO much fun!
Can't remember when was the last time that I've laughed so much and had
a great night out like that one.

Photos from the exhibition opening and similar will be on my FaceBook soon
and in the next blog post, so stay tuned :)

I'm wearing: Espadrillas - Chanel, Blouse - Winter Kate, Sunnies - Celine,
Jacket & jeans - Zara, Bag - Celine, Ring & earrings - House of Harlow 1960

scarf anymore.

Take care everyone and enjoy your weekend!

Outfit post - Happiness is...

Good Wednesday everyone!!
How are you doing? Did you had nice Easter holidays?
I'm so glad that the holidays are over, even though I have
used them very well and I did get a much needed peaceful
time of doing nothing, but just enjoying the sunny weather.
My batteries are recharged and SO ready for this shortened
working week.

As you already know from my previous posts, there're only
3 days left until my exhibition opens and I couldn't be more
excited about this!! Can't wait to see all of the works hanging
on the gallery's walls :)

Today was yet another sunny day in Helsinki and I had few
things to take care of downtown. I had a meeting and also
I've met with my sister for a nice coffee and chit-chat.
I'm now waiting for a phone interview and after that I'm finally
going to get my dining table and chairs.
I have ordered them 7 weeks ago and they have FINALLY arrived.
Yep, this whole time + some more since the move to new flat, I've
been eating on my sofa or on my bed.

Talk to you soon my dear readers! Enjoy this day as much as you can,
because the happiness is hidden in the small things/ pleasures :)

enjoyed them with your family and that you had some nice
Easter treats :)

I had such an amazing weekend, I couldn't wish for better.
My city is finally blessed with lots of sunshine and warm
weather, so I've been spending lots of time outside in long
walks throughout the city and in the nature.

This weekend, in 6 days only is the opening evening of my
exhibition! There's so much to do before that, but I'm so excited
and fuelled with energy :)

I'm now getting ready to go for a nice morning walk and a
coffee/ brunch later on.
The sun is shining and that's all I can think of, so therefore,
bye-bye laptop for now and hello outdoors :D

Enjoy this day sweets!

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
