Outfit post - Hot in the city

Woah! It's been really hot in Helsinki lately! I can't
believe that we've been blessed with such an amazing weather :)
I've been just staying outside as much as possible. I mean, who could
stay inside after a long and dark Winter? I was SO waiting for the
Summer so I'm now embracing it fully :)

Usually, throughout a year I find myself being "stuck" in my skinny jeans
and no matter how many times I swear to myself that I'll be more feminine
and get my dresses/ skirts out, it's just so damn cold that jeans are the only
thing I reach for in the closet.
I don't even have to mention how happy I've been to wear all of my nice
Summer dresses, skirts, flow-y pants/ overalls when going out to run my
errands, meet with friends, just walk around the city.

I hope that this kind of weather will stay for at least 2 more weeks as I have
a short road trip planned for the next weekend and until then, I want to just
soak up the sun rays, eat tons of ice cream and just be happy :)

Have a fabulous Thursday everybody!

I'm wearing: Shoes - Vagabond, Dress - Zara, Belt - &otherstories,
Earrings and bracelets - JCrew, Bag - Celine

Outfit post - Grecian lover

Good Tuesday morning everybody!
I got up very early this morning to take my brother to
the airport. I'm so sad that he had to leave back home, I had
such a wonderful 10 days with him here in Helsinki, showing
him around the city and going places, just having a quality
brother - sister time. Hopefully, he'll visit me again for Christmas
so we can catch up some more and make some new memories :)

I have a meeting with my PR soon, so I'll jump in the shower and
get ready for that, but before I do that, I want to share an outfit
with you which is very dear to me and I feel like "me" in it.
Ever since I saw this dress at Shopbop earlier this Summer I knew
I needed to order it. This dress screams "Natali" :)

Like I've already mentioned in my previous posts, we've been having
an amazing weather in past 10 days, so I got to wear a lot of my summertime
clothes which I was patiently waiting to capture with my camera and
show them in my blog, so stay tuned for more outfit posts like this one!

Have a great day girls and boys!

I'm wearing: Dress, cuff and ring - Hoh1960, Sunglasses - Chanel, Bag - Celine,
Shoes - Tommy Hilfiger, Earrings - Asos

Outfit post - Kimonotizing

I didn't even turn around and BAM! it's already a weekend
and it's been a week since I've returned from my holidays.
Well, they have kinda continued here in Helsinki too because the
weather is absolutely amazing and my brother is here so we've been
doing a lot of sightseeing and restaurant "testing", not to even mention
the amount of ice cream and sweets we've indulged in :)
Yep, it's still holidays for me!

We have a nice plan of what we'll do today so I better start getting
ready and all that as we want to get the maximum out of every day.

Here's an outfit which I wore 2-3 days ago and this kimono was an
extra garment since it was so hot that I didn't get any use of it, but
I wanted to present it to you. I've always been into kimonos and esp.
during the Summer, they're so light and easy to just "throw over"
a simple outfit and make it look very boho and stylish :)
How do you like this outfit? If you like this kimono or want to find
some other kind of (similar) kimono then check it out HERE

Have a fantastic weekend everyone!!

I'm wearing: Bag - Chanel, Kimono & earrings - Choies, Sandals - Vagabond,
Sunglasses - Marc by Marc Jacobs, Shorts - Zara, Top - JCrew

Outfit post - Dallas boy

Hello my dear readers! 

Seems like evenings are now more "reliable" time for me 
to update my blog. I'm very happy that we have amazing summer 
weather in Helsinki and that it will continue to be like this for at least 
few more days.
Every day, for 4 days in the row, I've been just walking all over the city 
with my brother and showing him around all the beauty which I forget 
about living my usual, daily life. 

We have lots of fun stuff planned to do in the following days, so check 
out my Instagram profile for more "live feed" photos :)

In this outfit, I'm presenting you my newest bag and if you ask me, I would 
be fine having just this one bag because it's so perfect and unique that I can't 
even believe that it's mine. I got it in London a month ago and it was a must 
have item for me. It's part of Chanel's limited Dallas collection and it looks 
like a piece of art ( which it is ). 

Let me know what you think of this outfit?

I'm wearing: Sandals - Vagabond, Bag - Chanel, Dress - Free People, 
Earrings - Deni design, Bracelet - Balenciaga

Outfit post - Changes

Did you ever felt like there's a change going on or you could 
"smell" the change coming but you just couldn't pin point what 
the change was!? That's how I feel right now, I feel that there's 
a whole new life awaiting for me ( less than 3 months away ) and 
at the same time I'm scared to leave the "safe" zone that I know so 
well, but that safe zone just doesn't feel like a place I should stay 
at or belong to. Crazy complicated, right!? :D 

You know that feeling when everything looks the same but nothing 
is and you're pretty much sure that it never will be...

Onto the more lighter themes - I've had great weekend and today was 
nothing less than a perfect summer day! 
My brother is visiting us, so it's been fun going places and exploring 
my own city with him. We still have a week on us to go everywhere 
and it makes me feel like I'm not done with my holidays yet :) 

This is an outfit which I wore yesterday and I felt very confident while 
wearing it. 
What do you think about it?

I'm wearing: Dress - Ganni, Sandals - Vagabond, Bag - Mansur Gavriel, 
Ring & cuff - HOH1960, Earrings - Chanel, Lipstick - Estee Lauder

Sometimes, we all deserve a break...

Hello my dear readers!
I'm sorry for lack of posts and updates, but except from no internet
connection or barely being online, I have decided that I needed a break
from everything and that I have deserved one.
Every post before my holidays, I have been just counting days until my
holidays to recharge my batteries and it took me a few days to realise that
I need to take a break from everything, not just photography, but also blogging
and that world doesn't really care if I'm not posting 3,5,7 times a week as long
as I do keep on writing at some point :)

I did had great holidays and I'm now back home but I feel that they were too short
and am already looking at the new flight tickets for August.
Sometimes, we all deserve a break and we are the only ones who can "force" ourselves
to take a break.
Break is good... Break makes you stop for a moment, take a step back and look at your
life and future plans from a whole another point of view.
I feel that I need more of that... I feel that before holidays, I was very confused for
months and while planning the future, I was also very scared at the same time and
didn't know how to cope with everything that's coming, esp. now in Fall with our
mini move to NYC and New York Film Academy.
Now, that I did take a break and have just enjoyed my holidays, I do have a whole
different "picture" in my head and feel more confident in my plans, believes, etc.

Sometimes, we need somebody to tell us to slow down, because not always when
we slow down means that we're "loosing" something or going backwards...
Sometimes, that's exactly what we need to go forward.

So, starting tomorrow, I'm back to my usual posting, but I feel that I have now much
more fresh mindset and this way I can also make my blog look and feel fresh too :)

I'm also at some point throughout this Summer going to change the layout completely
and am very excited to see this little space develop to a new level.

Have a fabulous Sunday and remember to just chill!! :)
Much love!

Outfit post - Dubrovnik love

Here I am, back with a new outfit post! I've tried to buy a mobile
internet but seems like some cities in Croatia are about 15 years
behind so I've been sold non working or too old internet for the
century that my laptop is at.
Ah, whatever... I have found a nice little cafe nearby so I'm now
logged in and presenting you one gorgeous SKIRT which I got from
Choies online shop a day before I took off to Dubrovnik for my summer holidays.

I'm so happy with the way how it fits me, I felt so pretty wearing this
skirt and I definitely can say that it was turning heads as I was walking
through the city wearing it :)
Just like I said in the previous post, the opinion is 100% my own and
I stand behind every word when I say that the colour, size and fabric were
true to my expectations.

What do you think of this skirt and this outfit in general?

I hope that all of you have had nice summer holidays or will have one sometime
soon. I still have about one week left and I'll try my best to relax as much as I can
because when I go back home, I have just months and months of hard work and
New York Film Academy is getting closer day by day!! :O

Have a fabulous day my dear readers and stay tuned for my Dubrovnik photo diary
and tips!

I'm wearing: Sandals - Tommy Hilfiger, Skirt - Choies, Bag - Chanel,
Top - Mango, Earrings - JCrew, Ring - Deni design

Holiday mode

Hello dear readers,

just a quick note to let you know that I haven't been MIA on purpose,
my internet connection is pretty much non existent.
I'm preparing new posts for you with tons of great content, but I'll have
to write all of them and schedule the posting seeing that I won't be able
to work as I'd like to up until I'm back home in Helsinki.

I have been enjoying my holidays a lot, but I still never let down my
blog and I love to be in touch with you.

I'm very excited for Monday as I'll meet one blogger girl which I got
to "know" exactly via blogging and that's so cool!

More news and posts will follow tomorrow and so on. I'm keeping my
fingers crossed that these scheduled posts will work :)

Outfit post - Chandelier

Good Tuesday morning everyone!!
I'm in beautiful Dubrovnik, Croatia and couldn't be happier to be here.
The weather is amazing, the location of our hotel is breathtaking and
the heritage, old streets and views of this city are absolutely mind blowing!
I think I'm in love... :D

I'm so glad to be on my summer holidays as just now I have realised how much
I was in a need of one.

Here's an outfit which we shot before leaving to Dubrovnik and I would like to
show you this amazing DRESS which I got from Choies online store as a present.
I chose the dress myself, so I stand 100% behind every word that I write here.
It's absolutely gorgeous! The fabric is great, it fits true to size, it had gorgeous
blood red colour and makes you feel like a princess when you put it on :)

Let me know what you think of this outfit!?

Have a great day and stay tuned for tons of photos from Dubrovnik.

I'm wearing: Dress - Choies, Shoes - Calvin Klein, Clutch - Accessorize,
Earrings, ring and sunnies - HOH1960, Bracelet - JCrew

London diary - Days 2 and 3

Good morning!!
How's everyone? Did you had great weekend?
I hope that Sunday will be as beautiful, sunny and exciting as
it is/ will be for me :)
I've arrived back home from London yesterday evening and am
already repacking for the summer holidays in Croatia.
I'm leaving already today, so I wanted to put up this London diary post
before I start "bombing" you with my Croatian adventures as I'll visit
at least 4 different cities :)

London treated me so well! The weather was amazing, everything we've
visited, all of the restaurants that we ate at and just a feeling of being "lost"
in the river of thousands of people on the streets of London made me SO happy!

Here's a photo diary, hope you like it as much as you did the 1st day of this
mini trip.


                                       Visiting Harrods always feels so special!

If you haven't been to Egyptian escalator at Harrod's, you've missed 
out a truly breathtaking sight

Food Hall at Harrod's is absolutely TOP of the tops! 
Their confectionery and tea side was heaven for me :)

And of course, visit to Laduree is a MUST!

Riding in London cab :)

Having lunch at an amazing italian restaurant 
called Obika which specialises in the best mozzarella 
dishes in London as they fly in their mozzarella straight from 

If you fancy shopping all of the amazing fashion designers, 
check out New Bond street, absolutely fantastic array of shops!

Breakfasts at Le Pain Quotidien are always such a treat!

Strolling through little side streets in London

Lunch at amazing Yauatcha restaurant, 
the best dim sums and dumplings in London!

My souvenirs :)
