The Beauty Beneath

    My Project 333

    As our April move is getting closer and closer, I’m in desperate need to declutter our stuff. My love/hate relationship of decluttering my wardrobe is real. I hate to go through it but I love having a tidy closet! I’ve been reading a book about textile industry and its huge effects on the world. It’s called Hyvän mielen vaatekaappi and it’s written by Rinna Saramäki (2014). It’s written in Finnish (sorry!) so I recommend it to all my Finnish friends who cares about the world and wants to make smart choices while buying clothes! The book is divided in to two topics, first part is about the textile industry. Second is about…

    Who would come and plant me a rose garden? I love how the look and more than anything how they smell! I’m a terribly lazy gardener, but I do appreciate beauty. Maybe I would be able to maintain a rose garden… Some day. Right now our tiny garden space is barely holding a one bush of roses, one bush of peonies and one bush of hydrangeas. Only lilacs and rhododendrons are missing and then I would have all my favourites in one place! These photos of me where take by my hubby in a garden called the Guastalla garden situating in south-east of the centre of Milan. It had a…

    Our little getaway in Milan was beyond perfect! Never mind the thunder storm on our first night there, we had so much fun just walking around and observing the Milanese way of life. Which is by the way, very different from the Roman! During the four days of my stay, we walked a lot (20k steps per day) and ate a lot too… Gotta keep things in balance, right? On our walks around the city centre we discovered amazing parks and gardens and stopped to admire them more closely whenever we got a chance. The Milanese have these gorgeous gardens in the courtyards/patios which are only meant be for residents…

    I love photography. As I love taking photos from everyday life and memorizing special moments on film, I do also love the more editorial kind of photography as well. Combining that with my love of styling and creating looks is my favourite pass of time, at least in the creative sense of things. I don’t get as much pleasure from painting or sewing (althought I like doing them a lot) as I do from creating a story with a series of photos. Either behind or in front of the camera, it doesn’t matter! This time I had the pleasure to work with Camilla with my vision. I wanted create a…

    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? I think…
