Stepping downtown

Fashion,15 July 2019

Hi you! I took a little break from blogging and it felt really good to have less screen time and be more focused on other things. Now I’m on my way back to town for my eye procedure tomorrow morning. I’m really eager to get rid of this unnecessary inconvenience, although it’s just esthetics at this point.

While I’ve spent my days with the family, I’ve made sure to do my daily walks ( I know I sound like a granny when I constantly talk about my daily walks, so no need to point that out ;)).  During my walks, I always listen to podcasts and this time, I’ve gotten obsessed with interview pods.  Listening to other people’s thoughts and stories has always interested me, no matter who they are or what they have done/ achieved. This time, I’ve listened to Anders Hansen, author and senior physician in psychology. Maybe some of you are familiar with his work or him, but I loved listening to him and therefore, I really want to recommend his books and interviews. He talks a lot about how we get effected by screens, social media and how these are connected to our health.  In case you need to find motivation to be more active he really knows how to convince you to take that walk or go to the gym! And, for those of us who suffer from anxiety, feeling low or depression even, physical activity can prevent, help and even cure these conditions. When I listened to the statistics and facts about how hugely daily activity effects not only our physical but mental health, I got a lot more interested in getting that sweat on. The podcasts are in Swedish, but his books are available in Finnish as well.

Today I’m going to run some errands downtown and meet up with some friends later. Tonight however, I really feel like I need to buy myself lots of candy because all I want is to lay in bed with a new book or movie and eat candy before I get to sleep a good night in the best bed in the world.

Treasures on a chain

Fashion,8 July 2019

Maksettu kaupallinen yhteistyö Gauhar Helsinki:n kanssa// In paid collaboration with Gauhar Helsinki

Happy Monday! I’m sitting down having lunch while I’m writing. This morning, I filmed a makeup video for you coming out later this summer and I’m trying to speed- work before we’re off somewhere fun with the family. While I was working, my kids actually visited the bank today for the first time. They transferred all their savings into their bank accounts and now we are trying to teach them about interest rates, investments and donating to charity. I’m learning a bit myself on the way ;D. They are so interested to learn about everything. It’s cute and inspiring!

I thought I’d talk a bit about this new longer layering piece I designed for Gauhar Helsinki. I rarely wear only one necklace because I like to have a personal little stack of pieces I love, but I like them to be dainty and simple. I always love mixing both metals, but the main impression should always be gold for me. This ‘Treasures on a chain necklace’ is nice by itself in all its simplicity, but it goes with any other necklace as well. If you want to see them “live” check out my stories here.

The entire Summer collection ‘Souvenirs from the sea’ comes in both silver and gold. Get to the collection here!
