How can you think of Halloween when it’s snowing outside?

Most of the Finns celebrated Halloween this year on 4th of November and that’s why yesterday when we went to the grocery store, the town was almost empty and a few of the stores were closed.  And I was wondering why, until I checked my news feed and my beloved Finnish friends were sharing photos of their outfits and then I realized that all my decorations are now in boxes in our storage room waiting to see the light of the day next year -_- So yeah, I celebrated Halloween when there was still snow outside and it felt like a spooky Christmas to be honest xD

Warm autumn day

I’ve dusted off my old hobbies/passions, took the camera out of the forgotten drawer and went out into Mother Nature’s arms.

The arrival of autumn always breaks my creative blocks and brings me an indescribable joy! Doing all the things that I’m doing is like food for my soul. With all that, the sweaters come along, the cozy nights on the couch spent next to my beloved one and the pumpkin season!

And now all my weekends are booked. And by “booked” I mean that I will not do anything else but C R E A T E . Music, videos, sculptures, absolutely everything my “itchy fingers” crave for. Because morning wake-ups and running errands every day during the week keep me away from the things that I love.

So, with that being said, I’m back to business and hello autumn!

Oversized sweater: thrifted

Two years in Finland

Two years ago I started my journey to Finland and now I can happily say that I permanently live here ❤

I wanted to go somewhere and film something exciting for my readers/subscribers but all my plans have been shattered by the nasty weather…so I ended up in front of my laptop playing this game called “Influent”. While playing, I recorded myself talking nonsense and just having fun failing 😀

Enjoy the video and cheers to two years in Finland!

Juhannus

Every year here in Finland, we have this holiday called Juhannus and people consider this celebration as important as Christmas. I personally don’t celebrate it but since I moved here, every time for Juhannus we are going to look for a kokko – the traditional midsummer bonfire. This year we were all tired and quite late so most of the kokkos that we have seen were almost off. And the weather has not helped us at all – rain, mellow weather and cold.

But at least I got to “vlog” a bit our Juhannus adventure so here it is. Enjoy! 😀

May

May has been a quiet and a busy month at the same time but I am back with a new mini travel vlog 🙂
Although I had many plans for my trip to Helsinki, they all have been ruined by the cloudy cold weather.

A trip with adventures – although I had two cameras with me, the moment I wanted to take photos in front of Tuomikirkko, I took the DSLR out of my bag and I was wondering why it was sooo…”not so heavy” until I realized that I have forgotten the battery in the unplugged charger…And also my friend came from Romania here for the first time so it was wonderful to “relive” moments from my first visit to Helsinki which happened in 2013.

 

A day after Easter…

I almost forgot how wonderful it feels to spend time in nature doing some…”unusual” things like drinking something from a fancy glass or eating Easter eggs 😀 I just did it on the 1st day of Easter, grabbed my tripod and some “snack” and off I went into the woods and I must say that I froze up. Never trust the Finnish sun!

A little adventure never killed anyone! 


Before you ask, the choker is from Asos and I’m stunned by its beauty! 😍

And it’s now on sale! Get it while it’s cheap! 

The last warm days

I know it’s been a few weeks since I didn’t write here but I’m back!

Suomenlinna – is the place where I always like to go whenever I’m in Helsinki. I got a ticket from the ticket machine at the Market Square and I jumped in the ferry. The journey to the sea fortress takes around 10 minutes but I never count how long it takes because it feels amazing to be on top of the water and to have the wind playing with your hair and seagulls flying above at the same pace with the ferry. It feels like you are one of them. One with the nature!

This time I explored the island a bit more and I have discovered places where I could hide and be alone. Places where I can have the Baltic Sea at the bottom of my feet and then rest in a coffee shop with a hot chocolate and an original Fazer chocolate candy. All these things you can see yourself below.
