Letting go

Fashion,Outfit,17 December 2018

Today is a very important ”pinch me” day. I’m hosting a pre-shopping event at Gauhar Helsinki today from 5 to 7 pm. You are all welcome to stop by and take a look at my earrings I’ve designed, shop Christmas gifts or just chit chat. This past summer and fall I’ve designed a pair of limited-edition earrings that will be released online tomorrow morning. I am extremely honored and happy for this project and I have to say, it’s one of the most fulfilling things I’ve done so far. Designing jewelry is so much fun! I could do it over and over again. Overall, this year has been amazing. I’m a bit scared to let go, but I guess I just have to dare to dream bigger and continue to be as grateful for everything as I am right now. And most importantly, take time to really take in all the accomplishments and dreams that has come true. What else do we work for if not to enjoy it?

After today, I’m more or less free from obligations and work. Or I’m never ”work free”, but free from schedules, deadlines and appointments. This Christmas will be health focused for me. I want to work out a lot and stay active. I quit my headache medication about a week ago, so I don’t have any other option than to really listen to my body and do what it requires from me. Unfortunately, my body wants me to move a lot, so that’s what has to be done. How will you spend your Christmas holidays?

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!
