On the other side of Paris

Fashion,Outfit,14 December 2018

I’m at the airport, stuffing my face with brie cheese and chips per usual. Everything one shouldn’t do right before a flight, but I’m lacking salt in my body and didn’t have time to eat properly before we had to leave. I’ve had a really good time and love Paris, but right now I’m feeling home sick and a bit low. Low because of bad taxi experiences on repeat that made us feel unsafe and low because of all the trash and destroyed nature I’ve seen during my past few days here. It makes me so sad to see how the sides of the highways look like landfills and how soda cans get thrown in the mixed waste at restaurants. I can’t tell you enough how much I appreciate my home country. Especially now when I have a family of my own.

Other than experiencing these eye-opening things, we’ve had a wonderful time. Paris delivered with its timeless beauty and elegance and as a cherry on top of the cake- sunlight. We walked around, worked a little, laughed a lot and caught up on sleep.

After landing in Helsinki I’m going straight to my in- laws for dinner, followed by a calm weekend with the kids. I can’t wait to hold them so tight and kiss their little cheeks!

Thanks for stopping by!

This past year, I’ve really come to fall in love with jewelry again. I’ve never told you this, but a few years back I lost every single piece of jewelry I had, including inherited pieces from my past grandmother, my first pair of earrings, gifts from my husband, pieces I worked hard to afford from abroad and yearly birthday gifts from relatives. They got stolen, so I lost interest in wearing jewelry all together. Wearing jewelry lost its meaning because wearing jewelry is extremely personal to me.

Now, I’ve found my way back and I’m having so much fun with it! I’m collecting all kinds of pieces and the only requirement is that they bring me lots of joy. And so they do. As you already know, I’m obsessed with earrings. Especially dangling earrings that bring motion and a feeling of femininity and that something extra. Jewelry completes any look and makes the outfit as whole more personal and interesting.

In this post, I’ve collected some of my favorites from Glitter! I’m all over glitzy glitter and I like to match sparkle with sparkle. Don’t be afraid. Break the rules! I love to go crazy and make a jewelry statement. Especially now during winter. No time is better to wear big pieces than now. Chunky earrings paired with a knit, suit or party dress is the perfect combination. A piece of gorgeous earrings will give your entire face more glow. Don’t be afraid to add some extra sparkle this season. We all need and deserve it!
