Long cardigans are just my thing. Big and chunky for winter or oversized  for spring, how to resist them?!
This time I matched the one from Ivko, with distressed jeans and black slip on shoes from H&M.
Hope you will like it!

Photos from my 3rd solo exhibition opening night

Hello dear readers!
How are you doing? I'm just enjoying the morning with my
breakfast and cup of tea in bed while checking my never ending
emails and trying to catch up with blogging.
I've been travelling yesterday and just spending time with my mom
and brothers at their place in Croatia.
After all of the hard work and crazy business since the beginning of
this year, I needed a small get-away and time off.
I'm already back in Helsinki in 3 days, but I'll use my "relax" time
wisely while here :)

I would like to share the photos from my exhibition opening with you.
It was such a magical day for me and I'm still in such a great mood
ever since the opening.
Lots of friends, family and invited visitors came to celebrate with me
and I was happy to offer them catered sandwiches and cupcakes from my favourite
cafe in the city KUPPI JA MUFFINI, as well as Spritz Aperol drinks mixed
by one of the best baristas in the country.

Let me know how you liked the photos and my beautiful Balenciaga dress
which I wore for the opening?! I felt like a princess wearing it :)
I got it from my favourite store LUXBAG, a MUST shopping spot when in Helsinki.

On my feet I wore Chanel ballerinas and jewellery was all by House of Harlow 1960.

Outfit post - Daydreaming in Helsinki

Beautiful, sunny and happy Monday to all of you
my dear readers!
Weather in Helsinki has been heavenly for quite some
time now! I've been on a positive high because of so much
natural D vitamin :D
Every single day has been so precious and I've been spending
them mostly outdoors. Oh, what a fantastic change after a long,
weird and "dirty" Winter!?

How was your weekend? Mine was a pure bliss!!
I had my 3rd solo exhibition opening at a gallery Galleria 4-kuus
and it was magical. I had my family, friends and invited visitors
all in one place, supporting my dream and celebrating such an important
day for me :)

I couldn't be more grateful for everything and can't wait to hear
all of the opinions from people who will visit the gallery throughout
May since the exhibition is now open to public until 23rd of May, so
please, if you visit or are living in Helsinki and love art, do stop by to
check out my works :)

The night ended at private after party with friends and we had SO much fun!
Can't remember when was the last time that I've laughed so much and had
a great night out like that one.

Photos from the exhibition opening and similar will be on my FaceBook soon
and in the next blog post, so stay tuned :)

I'm wearing: Espadrillas - Chanel, Blouse - Winter Kate, Sunnies - Celine,
Jacket & jeans - Zara, Bag - Celine, Ring & earrings - House of Harlow 1960

Spring favorites

                                                                                                   ph. me

In last couple weeks I ended up with three not the same at all tops from Mango.
After I bought the white one and wore it few days in a row, I immediately knew that it's perfect time to grab in gray color too. And then I realized that they made one more version of it, with more ruffles, so I needed to take her with me.
Now, I have similar not the same  tops and they became my favorites for spring. In the next post you will see why!

Please, tell me that you are doing the same thing when you are obsessed with some item or it's just me?!

Online clicking can be defined as a new Olympic discipline.
So let's start one more exercise, gold medals are waiting for us in the future. ;)
1. How to make beachy waves - You are still asking me about my hair and how I'm making those messy curls, so HERE it is one more time. Everything is the same except my hair length.
2. Weekend travel look - if you are traveling somewhere for a weekend, HERE are some suggestions of what to bring and wear.
3. How to get makeup stains out of anything - while I was browsing through some articles, I ran into this one (haven't try it yet) and I thought that it's a good thing to know, just in case.
4. My week in heels - lovely Sabrina from took a challenge and tried to wear heels for a whole week and what happened during that period read on her blog. Love her honest thoughts about expensive shoes (like Prada and CL) and how uncomfortable they are while all the other ladies pretend.
5. Aging starts around 29?! - Google, stop showing me these signs articles, I know I'm getting old! As a girl who will turn exactly 29 this year I'm scared as s...t. but luckily I bumped into one more great text so I will give my best to start using at least three facial products on a daily base. Not giving a pinkie promise yet.

And that's it for tonight. If you have something interesting feel free to share it with me!

scarf anymore.

Take care everyone and enjoy your weekend!

Raspberry and mascarpone cheese jars

                                                                                            CLICK TO SEE MORE

                                                                                             ph. me

This rainy day is perfect to prepare something yummy with raspberries!
Find some cute little jars and be ready for whipping.
Let's start!
Ingredients (depends on the number of jars or size of your serving bowl)
frozen or fresh raspberries 300gr
1 cup of sugar
mascarpone cheese 250gr
cream for whipping 250ml
3 vanilla puddings
milk 1200 ml
butter 50gr

Raspberry filling:
Put the raspberries and sugar in a small pan on a low heat and leave it to warm up. Once the cream
is just starting to steam, stir it until you get the desired thickness. After that,  remove it from the heat to cool it down.

Mascarpone cheese filling:
Whip the cream and mash it with the cheese.

Vanilla filling:
If you have enough time, you can prepare regular filling with eggs, but if you are in the hurry, you can cheat a little bit and make it with vanilla puddings. ;) Instead of regular way (500ml of milk per one pudding), prepare three puddings with 1200 ml of milk. You will get thicker filling. Then put aside to cool to room temperature but not set. Add the butter to sit until it melts.

After you prepare these three cremes, start filling the jars : raspberries, vanilla, mascarpone and repeat it (you can make your own order of course). And that's it!
Serve it cold!
And now, let's talk about my fridge and nutrition cause you were asking me a lot about my weight and how I'm managing to stay fit despite the fact that I eat lot of yummy things.
Couple days ago I published one photo on the Instagram and you really like it - What's in my fridge as the new What's in my bag! ;)
Lots of vegetables, fruits, cheese, sour creams and yogurts are groceries that I use on a daily base most of the time. Occasionally I eat junk food too, but I suppose that's a good balance. ;)
Instead of bunch of sweets from the store I pick home made cakes or cookies. And that's pretty much it.

If you try the recipe, let me know how do you like it!

Kao mlađa domaćica, nikada nisam volela one odokativne mere i recepte bez preciznih instrukcija.
A onda sam se prepustila i naučila da improvizujem i da ne pratim stroga uputstva (naravno da ponekad stvari završe u kanti). Počela sam da kombinujem filove i kore iz omiljenih recepata, pa je upravo tako i nastao današnji slatkiš u tegli koji je vrlo jednostavan za pripremu. :)
Potrebno je (zavisi od broja teglica ili veličine posude u kojoj se servira):
smrznute ili sveže maline (ili bilo koje bobičasto voće) 300 gr
1 čaša šećera
250gr maskarpone sira
250ml slatke pavlake
3 pudinga od vanile (uvek koristim Dr. Oetker)
1200ml mleka
50gr putera

Fil od malina:
na tihoj vatri skuvajte maline i šećer (u tiganju ili šerpi) uz povremeno mešanje (dužina kuvanja zavisi od gustine koju želite da postignite). Nakon što postignite željenu gustinu, ostavite fil da se prohladi.

Fil sa maskarpone sirom:
umutite slatku pavlaku u srednje čvrstu smesu. Dodajte omekšali maskarpone sir. Promešajte.

Fil od vanile:
skuvati tri pudinga u 1200 ml mleka, kada se prohladi dodati malo putera i fil je spreman.
Ukoliko imate dovoljno vremena, možete napraviti standardni žuti fil sa jajima, u suprotnom ne brinite, retki su oni koji će primetiti razliku. ;)

Potom počnite da punite teglice redosledom koji se vama dopada, ponovite postupak sve do vrha. Ostavite da odstoji u frižideru sat, dva a potom možete poslužiti.
Savet plus: kako bi sve boje došle do izražaja, ono što bih sada drugačije uradila jeste, dodatni sloj malina između belog i žutog fila.
Ukoliko isprobate recept, volela bih da čujem kako vam se dopalo! :)

p.s. Nakon ove fotografije, vaših reakcija kao i brojnih pitanja oko moje ishrane, rešila sam da je podelim sa vama i na blogu uz kraće pojašnjenje. :)
Nikada ne preskačem doručak! Glad me napada čim otvorim oči, te ovu naviku od malena, sprovodim odmah. Sendviči na sto jedan način, omleti, salate - sve u zavisnosti od raspoloženja i apetita.
Ručak:  pored domaćih kuvanih jela, provuku se i paste, ali i Džejmijevi i Rudolfovi recepti. Salata je obavezna.
Večera i užine: salate, tunjevina, voće, šejkovi ili torte.
Da, torte. Umem često da večeram ceo red te voćno kremaste smese.
U svakom slučaju,  moja ishrana se bazira na domaćoj hrani, kuvanim jelima, konzumiranju svežeg povrća i voća, sireva, raznih namaza ali i ponekad velikoj količini šećera. I to je to! :)
