Outfit post - Friday

Yup, Friday is already here and I'm more
than happy that this week is over.
It's been a very stressful week and filled with changes, good
ones, but they did take a toll on me.
My husband gave a final notice at his work, our lease of this
apartment is up and I did catch a cold... Bit too much going on
at the same time. On a positive note, maybe I wasn't too clear
in my previous post, because I got lots of questions about me
leaving Finland.
I'm not leaving yet/ didn't leave yet, but I am going to be flying
off to US in a month from now.
I'm starting my new life's journey from LA where I'll attend a
photography course at NYFA and then I'll see where I'll continue
my life and career, depending on my husband and his career too,
of course.
All in all, I just know that these will be an exciting times in my life
and I'm glad to bring you along for the ride. :)

When it comes to this outfit, shirt and scarf are my "new in" items
from Zara and both are pieces which were screaming my name
when I saw them in the store. I've been all about scarfs and collar
shirts lately, they're slowly taking more and more space in my closet. :)
How do you like them?

Have a great weekend my dear friends, I'm going to have a nice
one with my friends and family, so I hope that you'll have a great
company during the weekend too!

I'm wearing: Boots - Frye, Jeans - Tiger of Sweden, Shirt - Zara,
Cardigan - COS, Scarf - Zara, Jacket - Alexander McQueen for H&M,
Beanie - Boss Orange, Bag & bracelet - Balenciaga, Earrings - Chanel

Outfit post - Pills N Potions

Good morning my dear readers! 
I hope that this Wednesday will treat you well and 
make the mid of the working week an easy one for you. 

I'm about to hit the gym after I write this post. I love 
going to gym because not just that I'm doing something great 
for my physical health, but even more important - to my mental 
health. Every time when I needed to "work through" something 
or had to get my thoughts cleared out, gym would be my saviour. 
I never understood why everybody thinks that going to gym is 
about loosing weight? At some point I've stopped even mentioning 
that I'm going to the gym because people would always say: 
"But you don't need to loose weight!" Yep, I'm going there for different 
reasons, you know like wanting to have strength in my body and mind. 
No pills or potions that can give you as much pleasure and positivity 
as a natural adrenaline that happens when you workout.

Anyway... I also wanted to announce that I'll be indefinitely relocating 
to US. I'm going there in a month from now for the school, but also checking 
all of my options as a photographer and blogger. 
Let's see what the future holds for me, I'm at the same time excited and 
I hope that you'll follow along with me on this journey! 

Here's an outfit: Coat - By Malene Birger, Scarf - Chanel, Dress - Mango, 
Headband - Zara, Bag - Louis Vuitton, Ring - Deni design, Boots - Vagabond

Outfit post - Blurred

Good Monday morning everybody!
How are you doing? How was your weekend?
I've been getting back to "normal" after our Zagreb trip,
washing, drying and ironing tons of clothes, grocery shopping
( my fridge was completely empty ) and in general
getting everything organised for a new working week.

Even though sometimes things are a blur and even when
you know what you want to do/ where you want to go in
life, I tend to at times get overwhelmed and pictures get
blurry... That's when I start to freak out and get "afraid" of
what future holds. I have to always remind myself that fear doesn't
exist, that's a shitty creation that happens in my head when I can't
control something... I always try to ask myself this question:
"What would you do if there wouldn't be fear of failure ?"
The answer is SO MUCH!

Therefore I'm starting this week on a very active note and
getting that fear pushed out of my head at the same time.

I'm starting with cleaning out my closet of all the clothes that I don't
need, then I need to run some errands and go to the post office as well
as take a passport photo for US visa.
Just by writing these words, the fear is slowly fading away and the blurred
pictures are getting more clear... :)

Have an awesome day my dear readers!

I'm wearing: Boots - Chanel, Jeans - Tiger of Sweden, Duvet coat - Burberry,
Scarf - Alexander McQueen, Bracelet - Balenciaga, Tee - Givenchy,
Bag - Stella McCartney, Beanie - Boss Orange

Zagreb: Day 4

Hello my dear readers! It's a weekend and
almost an end of January! Can you believe that? :O
My lovely trip in Zagreb is over and I'm already back
home but I would like to share the photos and highlights
from the last day of the trip.

I'm so happy that I have met so many dear friends and
have made some new ones.
Every trip I have ever been to has always enriched me in
so many ways that I'm already now planning on going away
to another trip.
Travelling is something that will never get boring or tiring for
me. I love travelling, exploring... I see it as an investment in
bettering yourself and your everyday life.

Here's my little photo diary, hope you'll enjoy it! :)

May you all have a great Saturday!!

Zagreb: Day 3

Good Thursday everybody! 
One more beautiful and activity filled day in Zagreb is behind 
and also in front of me. 
This is my last day in Zagreb on this trip and it's a bittersweet 
feeling. This city is always so good to me and I'm thankful for 
every single person that I've met so far. 

Today I've met a new, amazingly heartwarming and inspiring girl 
who's blog I've been reading for years now. 
It's so inspiring to meet people who fill your heart with happiness 
with their openness and welcoming smile! I felt like we've known 
each other for forever. :)
If you're interested to "meet" this girl as well, check her blog HERE!

For lunch today, I'm meeting with one of my oldest, childhood friends. 
I'm so excited to see her since it's been actually years that we've 
seen each other. 
It's funny how life works and sometimes it's so hard to see 
some dear people as much as we'd like to.

Here's the photo diary! Stay tuned for more! :)

Zagreb: Day 2

Good morning once again everybody!
How are you all doing? Zagreb has been treating me
so nice yesterday that I woke up way too early this morning
out of excitement that it's a new day of exploring, meeting some
new people, some old friends and testing some new restaurants.
Oh my! I could never believe that Zagreb will ever be one of the
"food meccas" in Europe and it definitely IS!
There're so many amazing food spots all over the city that it's
I'm vegan/ vegetarian, while my husband and daughter are both
meat eaters so it's hard to find restaurants where we can all three
enjoy our food equally and in Zagreb, that's not a problem. :)

As I've already mentioned, I have been shopping a little bit
yesterday and two stores that definitely stand out in Zagreb are
amazing Maria Store and Nicolas Concept Store, both located in
the city centre.
I can't wait to show you what I got, but both items are for Spring/ Summer,
so I'll have to wait a little bit until I can wear them and present them
in the "right" way, in an outfit post.

Enough of mumbling, here's a photo diary and stay tuned for the
next one! :)
