Outfit post - Thankful

Good afternoon dear readers!
It's been a lovely and sunny, but cold day in my city. I had to
bring out the full gear, read as : woollen gloves, beanie, giant scarf and
warm socks :D
I've been having crazy busy times, but it's getting a bit more calmer now,
just perfectly in time for the holidays.
I've been also shopping for Christmas presents and I'm now finally done
and my next mission is to buy home decor and decorate my home ready for
the holidays. It definitely helps me to bear with the lack of daylight and cold
weather outside.

I can now officially confirm that next year I will have my third solo exhibition
in Helsinki and I already have an open offer to have my 1st solo exhibition in
New York in 2016 too. There're lots of plans and ideas for the next year that aren't
agreed on yet, so I won't talk about them, but I will as soon as they're official.
I'm very much looking forward to my next conceptual photo shoot in week and half.
I've been craving to shoot proper set of fine art photographs for 2 months now, so
you can imagine how excited I am :)

Have a great evening/ day everyone!

I'm wearing: Boots - Steve Madden, Jeans - Diesel, Shirt - Ralph Lauren,
Kimono - Winter Kate, Necklace - Deni design, Ring - HOH1960,

Outfit post - It's cold outside

Happy beautiful Monday everyone!
I know that not everybody is as excited about Mondays as I am,
but try to look at it from the positive side and think of Mondays
as a new chance to finally do everything you didn't managed to on
previous week(s).

It's gotten really cold in Finland and I've been freezing for days.
No matter how many layers of clothes I put on, I'm still cold.
One of the downsides of being skinny person - you're always cold,
except when it's Summertime and I'm laying at the beach...
I might as well just go to Australia now :D I miss sunny Summer days
already and it haven't even snowed in Helsinki. Ajajaj!

Over the weekend I've been shopping for Christmas presents and majority
of them are now safely stored in "secret" places at my flat and waiting for
Christmas to get to their new owners :) I just love holidays SO much, perfect
time of the year to just be happy for no certain reason and show your love to
the closest ones :)
How was your weekend folks?

Have a great day!

Christmas presents ideas

It's that time of the year... My most favourite time of the year
and it makes me so happy that it's finally here!
I'm on a Christmas holidays high and I have already started to shop
for the presents for my loved ones.
The city looks beautiful with all of the lights, Christmas trees and decorations
popping out everywhere.
I love the smell of cinnamon and mulled wine, Christmas songs... Pretty much
anything that has to do with my favourite holiday of all.

In this post, I would like to give you some ideas for "him", "her" and "little ones".
I always find it hard to shop for my family, but once I do hit the stores, ideas
start popping up and sooner than I know, I'm walking away with the perfect present
in hand.
If you still haven't shopped for the Christmas presents, this is a good post for you
to get some ideas on what to get to your loved ones.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Outfit post - Isabel Marant pour H&M pt. 3

This is my third and last outfit of Isabel Marant pour H&M collection.
Dress that I'm wearing today, instantly became my favourite piece
in the closet. I can't wait to wear it in Spring/ Summer when the
weather will be warmer and I will be able to wear it with sandals,
hat and lots of jewellery.
Today's outfit would be my version of how to wear this beauty in
Fall :)

I'm working on my official website together with a lovely girl, so
lots of writing/ posting e-mails is involved, but hopefully we'll get it
ready asap and then I'll have all of the information about my photography
in one place. Can't wait to see and also share the final result with you.

Now I'm off to IKEA since I'm helping my sister to get some stuff
for her 1st apartment which is already coming together nicely.
I love to shop for interior decor so this should be a fun "trip" :)

Have a great Wednesday everyone!

I'm wearing: Boots - Frye, Bag - Rebecca Minkoff, Dress - Isabel Marant
pour H&M, Cardigan - Free People, Cuff & ring - HOH1960,
Lipstick - Kate Moss for Revlon

Outfit post - Isabel Marant pour H&M pt. 2

Good Monday!

Here's my 2nd outfit of Isabel Marant pour H&M collection.
This gorgeous knitted jacket was something I haven't thought of
getting before entering the store, but after I saw only one hanging
on the racks, I took it, tried it on and there was no doubt that I was
going to take it home with me.
It's such a chunky, warm and chic jacket! One of the best purchases
I did in a long time. I can see how it's going to be a Winter staple for me :)

I have one more item to show you which I got from this collection,
but for that you'll have to stay tuned until Wednesday.

I've been getting some interesting offers from States regarding my photography
so I'm now thinking about them and checking them through.
However, I'm now already sure that I'll be back in NYC end of August next year.
I can't wait, but until then, I'll hopefully take couple of trips in Europe.
What are your favourite cities to visit? I'm on a BIG travel fever kick now and
can't wait to get my feet on the road.

Have a nice beginning of the working week everyone!

I'm wearing: Jacket - Isabel Marant pour H&M, Shorts & blouse - Mango,
Beanie - Gant, Scarf - Accessorize, Bag - H&M F/W '13 Paris collection ,

Outfit post - Isabel Marant pour H&M

Good Friday afternoon everyone!
As I believe most of you already know, yesterday was the
1st day (and most possibly the last day ) of Isabel Marant pour H&M
collection which landed in 200 selected stores all over the world.
I was lucky enough to grab 4 items which I've had in mind getting since
the first time I saw collection's look book.
Some pieces were sold out before I came inside the store (25 minutes after
the opening), so I believe that this was the most sought after collection that
H&M has done with any designer.
Anyhow, here're two pieces from the collection and the other two I will show
in the upcoming posts :)

This evening is reserved for a private party of my favourite department store
Stockmann and since they're offering 20% discount on all the items in store
during the whole evening, I might buy some Christmas presents already today.
I'm having a Christmas fever if you can't tell :D

Tomorrow should be a fun day as well. I'll be attending Indiedays Inspiration
blog awards. Check my Instagram profile for some photos.

Have a great weekend folks!

I'm wearing: Boots - Frye, Tights - Marc O'Polo, Shorts - Zara, Bag - Celine,
Top and coat - Isabel Marant pour H&M, Cuff - Deni design

Instagram diary

Hellooo Wednesday!
One more Wednesday that came way too fast, but I have
particularly loved it because LONG awaited Starbucks cafe
has opened this morning in Helsinki downtown at Academic
book store on Keskuskatu/ Esplanadi. I shall be sitting there every
day from today :)
I've been running couple of small errands today and one of them was
a quick meeting with a gallery curator to talk about the upcoming exhibition
which I'll have next year in Helsinki. It got me excited for all of the
photo shoots that I yet have to create and then seeing the final product after
the selected photographs are printed and mounted.
Next year will be a fabulous one, I can feel it! :)

Anyhow, here's a Instagram roundup of my life in past week(s).
You can follow me on Instagram HERE!

Outfit post - Venus

Happy Saturday everyone! 
I'm happy that it's weekend and that I finally get a little 
bit of time to relax and do some things I had to put on 
my "wait list" since I had crazy filled week. 

I'm so excited about the upcoming holidays and can barely 
wait to start buying presents, decorations and similar. I have 
already started to "stock" up on favourite seasonal drinks and 

How about you? Are you as excited about December as I am? :D 

I wore this outfit today downtown while I was running my errands 
and grocery shopping since all the shops are closed tomorrow. 
We're celebrating Father's Day tomorrow here in Finland and we'll 
have a nice family lunch at viking themed restaurant and I'm very 
much looking forward to it. 

Have a great weekend and take care!
