Outfit post - Solemn hour


Happy Thursday! :)
I had quite a though and emotionally exhausting day, but
I don't want to let it get to me and put me down to depressive
mood. I'm keeping my head up high and thinking positive of
all of the beautiful things that are yet to come/ happen to me.
Positive vibes is the way to go!

I've just finished a Skype meeting regarding my upcoming
photo exhibition and I'm very excited about it. I still have many
photo shoots to work on before the exhibition, but I can't wait to
see all of the ready photos hanging on the gallery's walls :)

Sorry for the bad lightning and not such an exciting location of
today's outfit photos.
We've just moved homes and I've been swamped with so much unpacking,
cleaning, working and tons of daily errands that I didn't find better
location and there're plenty of them in this city.
Can't wait to start shooting outfit photos somewhere downtown.

Have a good evening everybody and take care!

Outfit post - Chasing cars


Good Tuesday morning beautiful people!
I'm in a big hurry today because I have the photo shoot in
a few hours and I still have to get two props and put up the
set + bring to and get my daughter from the kindergarten.
I love multitasking, but at times it can get very stressful, so it
will be great to take a mini break until the next photo shoot in
about 10 days.

How was your weekend? Did Monday treat you well too?
I went for a coffee with friend on Sunday, baked perfect
shrimp enchiladas for the dinner and yesterday was all about
rushing and taking care of my errands.

I still haven't found much furniture for our new apartment.
It's pretty annoying that for some furniture which I liked, we
would need to wait up to two months to get them?!
Really? Luckily, I have a few more furniture stores to check out,
they might have better "news" for me.

Have a nice day everyone!

Harlequin photo shoot

Hello dear readers and good Sunday!
I just wanted to drop a quick post in here to show you the photos
of my latest photo shoot.
It was so much fun to do it, because all of the people on the set,
including the model were either friends or my family and the photos
were shot in the building to where we have moved in 3 weeks ago, so it doesn't
get better than that :)

I hope that you like the photos. Let me know what you think of them.

Outfit post - Red


Good day beautiful people!
How are you doing? I've been having crazy busy days, but
I ain't complaining because the weekend is near and I'll just
rest, eat some good food and spend time in a good company.
I also have to find all of the props for the upcoming photo shoot
which will happen on Tuesday, but I still have time until then and
I enjoy shopping for props for the set.

What are your plans for the weekend?
I've been yesterday at a lovely Luxbag store opening party. This store
sells some fantastic clothes, shoes, bags and accessories from brands
such as Givenchy, Balenciaga, Celine, etc. and it was great to come
and show them support and wish them a good luck with the new store :)
Check them out if you're visiting Helsinki and want to treat yourself with
something nice.

Take care everyone and please let me know if you think that I should open
a FaceBook page for my blog? We're getting closer to the 3rd year of this
blog and I thought that this could be one of the things/ steps forward!

Outfit post - Balenciaga


Good afternoon my dear readers!
How was your weekend? I had so much fun over the
weekend as well as many mood swings... We have finally moved
all of our stuff from the old apartment to the new one and it was
such a long and exhausting "project". I couldn't believe how much
trash could pile up in only 6 years of living on one address.
All I can say is that we had way too much clutter everywhere and
I can breathe now so much more in the new apartment.

On the fun side, I had a photo shoot on Sunday and the photos turned
out perfectly! I'm so happy with how well they turned out technically
as well!
I will share the ready photos with you in the next post, because now,
I would like to tell you more about my outfit.

About a week ago, great luxury store (re)opened on the new address
in Helsinki and I went to check what new great things they got from
the latest collections of many amazing brands such as Balenciaga, Givenchy,
Celine, etc.
I couldn't resist this beautiful sweater and bag, both from Balenciaga.
How do you like them?

This day is so rainy and gloomy... I just feel like staying in and organising
my new apartment which is another big project waiting to be solved :D

Have a great day everyone!!

Cropped white jeans, chunky cardigan and printed shirt were my picks for this warm weekend. I completed the look with statement earrings and embellished belt.
Hope you will like it!

p.s. if you choose simple white pants instead of jeans you can wear it to work, and if you apply smokey eyes make up, add a blazer or leather jacket instead of cardigan you can party all night long! ;)
