Outfit post - Blue on blue

Good Wednesday everyone!
I'm writing this post while sipping on my favourite Pukka tea
and daydreaming about upcoming holidays.
Isn't it crazy that in two days we'll enter the month of November?
I can't believe how fast this year flew by.

I have lots of plans for the weekend, so I'm very much looking forward
to Saturday when me and my sister will go out and hopefully have
lots of fun on two shows we're planning to check out :)

I got this coat back in July at Turku city in some small shop on the side
street and immediately fell in love with it.
This is the first time I'm wearing it and I can see that it will become one
of my favourite pieces in my closet.

Have a great day and stay tuned :)

I'm wearing: Boots - Vagabond, Jeans - Diesel, Coat - Uusi Kuu,
Blouse - Mango, Necklace - Adia Kibur, Bag - Celine

Cozy sweatshirt ...

You know how much I love cozy outfits and this one is a true example of that. New leather leggings, biker boots with hidden wedge, and oversized sweatshirt which I borrowed from my sis. :)

Paris / Video

                                                                                               CLICK TO SEE MORE

Remember the trip to Paris in February with my girl Jelena? Well, I recorded a few short clips of our crazy week in this gorgeous city and finally managed to find some time to edit and upload it! Its recorded with Samsung Galaxy camera, and the picture is perfect on the computer, but Youtube converted into lower quality unfortunately, so this is the best online version of it.
In this short video, you can see some parts of fashion shows, H&M party, night out at famous Costes, our daily taxi rides through the whole city, our big room at The Westin Paris - Vendôme  and some other things. :) 
Hope you will like it!

Outfit post - Poncho

Happy Monday!!

My Monday kicked off by going to the gym and for me,
that's one of the best ways to not just start your day but a
whole new week.

This day wasn't super shiny happy one and the weather is
pretty bad, esp. after switching clocks one hour backwards
over the weekend and it messed up the inner clock + the
daylight is almost non existent, very short and mainly rainy,
BUT... I have learned that it's all about how you look at the
things and how you deal with them is what makes the difference.

Sometimes, "rainbow" is right there, but because you're so occupied
with the clouds you have hard times to see that rainbow.
So today I have decided to be content and just keep the positive attitude
because if you have to deal with something, rather approach it from
the happy point of view :)

Anyway, have a great day everyone, I'm off to a children's bday party
and am ready to eat some cake!

I'm wearing: Shoes - Clarks, Jeans - Tiger of Sweden - Bag - Tory Burch,
Necklace - Zara, Bangle - gift, Blouse - Vila, Poncho - Esprit

New leopard pants and  favorite pieces from Morellato were perfect choice for the fashion show which I attended on the Saturday night. Before it started, I managed to snap these great photos during the gorgeous sunset!

Last weekend I decided to create one more non typical look for the office. Instead of black pencil skirt I picked the one with the flowers ( you can use any print that you like) and simple white t-shirt in combination with leather jacket and black shoes.

Outfit post - Do what you want

Seems like mid of the week always comes faster than
what I can think of it. It's almost the end of October and
next week will be all about Halloween. Are you prepared
for it? Do you celebrate it or do you just skip the whole thing?

I haven't been fan of Halloween before but since my daughter
grew up a little bit, all of the holidays, including Halloween got
a whole new feel and now I'm as excited as she is :)
I've bought some small house decor and will bake a special Halloween
cupcakes next week.

Today was very rainy, foggy and chilly day so I had to bring out
my Hunter boots once again. I just love how easy it is to wear them
and they're also so comfortable.
This knit was last year's purchase from Zara sales and it's still as good
as when I brought it home from the store.

I have some e-mails to catch up with and do lots of planning for the upcoming
two months, so I better get going now :)
Have a great Wednesday everyone!

I'm wearing: Boots - Hunter, Jeans - Diesel, Shirt - Free People, Knit - Zara,
Bag - Rebecca Minkoff, Bracelet - Marc By Marc Jacobs, Scarf - Gant,
Necklace - Deni design

And I'm back with my old crush - glossy pants.
I decided to matched them with oversized shirt and long blazer and only a few accessories so this belt can steal the spot.

Outfit post - Spacebound

Good Monday everyone!!

How was your weekend? Mine was pretty low key.
On Saturday I have celebrated my 26th b-day over the cake in
a cafe downtown and on Sunday I went to see a movie in the cinema.
I'm looking forward to the real b-day celebration in two weeks, it's
going to be so much fun :)

I'm wearing my new Burberry padded coat in this post. It's a must
have "garment" when living in a cold and long Winter type of place
as I do.

It's a beautiful and sunny day ( also cold ) in Helsinki and I'm enjoying
every minute of it :) I just came back from the gym and grocery shopping.
Time to make some lunch and then I'll go out for a walk and breath in some
more fresh air.

Have a great beginning of this week! Much love!

P.S. Thank you for all the birthday wishes that you left me on the blog/ Instagram.

I'm wearing: Padded jacket/ coat - Burberry, Boots - Steve Madden,
Bag - Marc By Marc Jacobs, Scarf - Alexander McQueen, Jeans - Mango,
Shirt - Samuji, Sweater & ring - COS, Bracelet - (gift) Marc By Marc Jacobs

Birthday + Instagram diary

Happy birthday to me :D
On this day, 26 years ago I was born in Moscow, Russia and
even though I was very close to be dead while coming to this world,
some higher power has decided that I was meant to live, so here I am :)

Thank you everybody on your sweet and kind comments on my previous
post, you all made me feel better.

The real birthday celebration will happen on the 1st week of November,
but for now, I have spent this morning with my girls downtown and had
my b-day cake. Ok, I also did some shopping online and can't wait for
the stuff to arrive :)

Have a great weekend everyone!!
