    SPRING SKIRTS

    The spring sun has finally caught us even here in Finland! It gives so much energy and inspires me to dress up more. This time it inspires me to wear more skirts and show my bare legs to the sun! I haven’t bought any new skirts after last summer/fall, but I’m missing a feminine and flowy skirt in blush pink that I really would like add into my wardrobe. Here are some of my picks that I thought I should definitely try on my quest in finding the perfect one for this spring/summer! I-V/ VILA VI / NEXT VII / SAINT TROPEZ Which of these would you prefer?

    MY SKINCARE ROUTINE

    Spring is around the corner, even here in Finland, which is a great time to check your skincare routine. Your skin needs different kind of care depending on which season it is. The climate has its effects on skin, as well as which part of our body we are talking about. Today I’m looking things from a more general level. What do you need to maintain a healthy clear skin? Next, I’m going to share my list of skincare to-dos. Scrub This is my least favourite part of skincare even though I love the result: a smooth and soft skin.

    MY GRADUATION PARTY

    THE GIFT OF IMAGINATION

    TODAY’S KIDS Having an amazing imagination is gift that keeps on giving. These days kids don’t run wild in the nature anymore and let their imagination grow and expand by doing so. Instead they are busy staring their screens like little zombies. Only time they get outside is to go to a nearest park and take 100 shots of themselves to prove it. How can I criticize like this when I’m doing the same thing myself?

    PLANNING A MENU

    My graduation parties are almost here, less than a week away actually! And yes, you read right, they ARE in PLURAL! The first party is an afternoon coffee reception for my family and other relatives and the second is for my friends! I’m in the midst of planning the menus for each of them. The menus are rather simple and quick to prepare, because I’m going to do them myself. Here’s what I’ve planned so far: in the first menu I’m serving my guests macarons, lemon cheesecake, layered cake with berries, salty pie and some chocolate balls. The second menu serves a rich couscous salad instead of a pie. Otherwise…
