Outfit post - I see fire

Good morning world!!
It's a rainy morning over here in Helsinki but that's not going
to slow me down :) I have couple of things planned for today
and one of them is to go to movies and check out highly awaited
Maleficent movie. I always get so inspired by movies and fairytales
and it's been a while since I went to cinema, so I'm excited about it :)

Next week I'm flying to London and that's another thing that I'm
SO looking forward to. I will be there only for a few days so my
schedule is pretty packed as there's so much to see/ do/ dine in London.
Expect a London diary on daily basis :)

I'm gonna jump in the shower now and get going, so take care everyone
and have a great Thursday!

I'm wearing: Sandals - Steve Madden, Pants - Isabel Marant, Top - Mango,
Bag - Tory Burch, Ring & cuff - HOH1960, Earrings - Chanel

Outfit post - I did it to myself...

Good Monday everyone!!
I'm a bit late with my blog posts, but I had quite chaotic
times with my exhibition closing, selling my old apartment and
such. A lot can happen in such a short time and at times I have hard
times to organise myself "on the go" and make schedules, esp. since
it has to include another two persons and not just myself.
However, I did pulled through it and I woke up feeling great and
energised this morning so I went straight to the gym and for a coffee with
my sister afterwards.
The weather in Helsinki has been lovely for a while and I couldn't be more
happier to wake up to sunshine every morning :)

This is the outfit which I wore on the last day of my exhibition. It was
sad to take the photos off of the gallery's walls, but I know that an amazing
future is awaiting for me and there's so much to look forward to.
I'M BURSTING of wish to tell you all about it, but I can't reveal anything yet :D
Soon, soon!

This t-shirt is one of my favourite pieces which I bought lately. It's by Vika
Gazinskaya which she did in collaboration with &otherstories, one of my
favourite high street brands rising from mighty swedish fashion scene which is
absolutely getting more and more inspiring each year.

Have a great day girls and talk to you soon!

I'm wearing: Bag - Mansur Gavriel, Shorts - Lindex, Tee - Vika Gazinskaya &otherstories,
Jacket - Zara, Sunnies - Ray Ban, Bracelets - Accessorize, Sandals - Vagabond,
Earrings & ring - House of Harlow 1960

Outfit post - Maxi red

Helsinki's weather has been heavenly for a few days now!
I'm so, SO happy to wake up to sun rays in the morning and
go to sleep with still lots of daylight outside. My favourite thing about Finland
are "endless" Summer days :)

Besides having an amazing and warm weather, I have been planning
my Summer holidays and can't wait to finally book all the flights and
hotels as this Summer has to be amazing. I really need a quality time off to
recharge my batteries. It's been a long and very hard year (counting from the last
Summer holidays) and plenty of time by the sea will do me good I believe! :)

That being mentioned, I have bought some new clothes recently which will be perfect
for Summer/ beach time and one of the pieces I got was this dress.
It's by Mango and I absolutely love it. It's so light and "flowy", just what I needed :)

My photo exhibition is closing tomorrow, which is such a bitter-sweet thing but
I'm not complaining, there's so much coming in future for me that I have no
time to be "sad" about the exhibition being over already.
It's been my most visited and praised exhibition so far and it was very interesting
to hear people's opinions on my works. I was overwhelmed with all the response
that I got which I think made it this hard for me to face the closing day tomorrow.

Anyhow, I hope that you're having a great day wherever you are and remember one
thing -> Keep on dreaming and believing, miracles do exist and wishes do come true :)

I'm wearing: Sandals - Tommy Hilfiger, Dress - Mango, Jeans jacket - Diesel,

Outfit post - Sound of silence

Good morning dear people!
It's Tuesday, 1st workout of the week has been done yesterday
and thanks to that, today I feel very energised to get lots of errands
done. I need to bring bunch of my daughter's old clothes to local
2nd hand store for sale, I'm also donating tons of my own old clothes
or mostly clothes that I don't wear anymore and I'm also planning to
cook a mushroom soup before I go out for a long walk by the beach
later in the afternoon.

The sun is shining and I can't wait to get outside, so I would like to
wish you a lovely and productive day.

Outfit post - Mr Steve

Good Sunday morning everyone!
I just had my breakfast and am sipping on my tea while typing
this post. It's finally sunny and lovely weather in my city, so yesterday
was the perfect day to spend it outside.
I have visited amusement park with my family, we ate cotton candy,
took many rides and strolled through the whole park.
I always loved amusement parks, they were such an important part
when I was growing up.
We never had a proper amusement park where I used to live in my childhood,
instead we had the "travelling" amusement parks, so every time when they
would come to my town, I was so excited to go and always found these places
to be somewhat magical :D

My photo exhibition is still going on for one more week and I'm so excited
about the final week, but at the same time I'm so bummed that the closing
time is near. I have put so much time, effort and myself into this exhibition
and it's a bitter-sweet moment to have to take away my art from the gallery's
walls. Then again, there's so much awaiting for me in the near future that
I won't be "sad" for too long :)

I hope that all of you are having a great Sunday and I would like to wish you
a successful start of the new week tomorrow!

I'm wearing: Pants - See by Chloe, Ballerinas - Vagabond, Bag - Celine,
Cardigan - Diesel, Tee - Mr Steve, Bracelet - Balenciaga, Earrings - Tory Burch

Outfit post - Don't mind

Hello dear readers!
How are you doing? I took a little breather from blog for
a couple of days to, first of all spend a lovely Mother's Day
last weekend with my family and to sort out some papers
for one of the most important and life changing things/ events
that are about to happen to me, but I will let you know all about it
when everything is settled down and confirmed.

One other thing which I'm preparing for you and this blog is a
complete makeover. After 3 years of blogging I was thinking a lot
on what I want to do with this blog, because it's not my main source
of income or my main talent/ thing, so it was either time to let it go
and say bye-bye to blogging world or to take this blog and my blogging
to a whole new level. Since I really love blogging and sharing my daily
outfits/ lifestyle with you, I have decided to keep this lovely little space
but give it a much needed face-lift :)

I can't say how long it will take to do this makeover, but inside next
few months I can promise you to have it all ready!

On to the outfit, I just now have realised how silly I look like mid May!
I'm SO pale and that was never the case when I used to live in Croatia.
My next possibility to tan naturally will be in July when I finally go
for Summer holidays and go to the beach.
Finnish Winters are really harsh, Spring practically always comes way too
late and Summer lasts for maximum 1 month, so yeah... Pale skin is the way
to go for me still for some time. Very attractive... NOT! :D

Hope that this week is treating you all well!

I'm wearing: Loafers - Asos, Skirt - Mango, Bag - Rebecca Minkoff,
Jeans jacket - Diesel, Top - Free People, Earrings - Chanel,
Ring & cuff - HOH1960

Outfit post - More than a feeling

It's Friday and I'm very glad that this week is coming
to an end. It was such a roller-coaster kind of week with
many highs and lows. I'm so glad to close it with a Mother's Day
celebration on Sunday.
The weather isn't so good and seems like it will stay same gloomy and
rainy one on Sunday too, so I'm not 100% sure on where and how I'll
spend the weekend, but I know that I'll be with my family and that's
already good enough for me :)

I'm very much into planning our trip to London. It's coming soon and
I'm very excited about it as there's an ENDLESS list of places that I want
to visit, shops I want to shop at and restaurants I want to eat at :D
If you're from London, have been living in London or have just visited
London and loved it, please share your tips on what to see and what def.
I shouldn't miss while I'm there.

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Outfit post - Mansur

Good afternoon everybody! It's mid of the week and I'm finally
back on track after my trip to Croatia. I did some work last two
days and also went to the gym which felt really good after a week
break. I also had to visit the dentist today because my tooth filling
fell off (was too passionate eating grapes with huge seeds).
It was a fast and painless procedure to fix it so I was happy about that :)

The weather has been quite weird, cold and even "snowy" in Helsinki
for the past week or so and finally today it started to warm up and
be all sunny and nice.
I can't wait to finally start wearing shorts and sandals. I'm so done with the

In today's post I'd like to show you my two latest purchases and they're
this amazing bucket bag by Mansur Gavriel that everybody went crazy
after. It's been sold out everywhere and it's quite hard to get your hands
on them, but I was lucky enough to bring this beauty home with me :)

Another "new-in" are these super comfy Chanel espadrilles in canvas
which I was also lucky to find in my size as I have ridiculous foot size :O

I hope that you're enjoying this day! Take care!

Mini get away in Sibenik, Croatia

Good morning world!
I'm back from my trip to Croatia and am ready for a new
working week. I'm just writing a quick post before going
out for a photo shoot, so I'll write/ post more later today or

If you've been following me for more than a year, most possibly
you know that besides living in Helsinki for the past 6-7 years, I
have been living most of my life in Sibenik, Croatia.
It's a small city on the Adriatic sea coast and I always visit it at least
twice a year.
This time I went there just to see my mom and brothers and spend
4 days with them. I felt that it would do good to all of us, so I've packed
my bags and flew there.
It was lovely to spend some time in the city where I grew up in and
show my daughter around and also meet some of my old friends.
It's like a walk down the memory lane :)

I took some Instagram photos on my trip and even though it wasn't
super eventful, I'd like to share them with you, in case that you're
planning your Summer holidays and would like to visit a new, inexpensive
but stunning and historical destination :)

One of the highlights of Sibenik are definitely his St. Jacob's cathedral that
is under the protection of UNESCO, 4 fortresses, hidden beaches, National
Park Krka and Kornat as well as SO worth the visit Pelegrini restaurant, one
of the top 3 restaurants in whole Croatia.
