Long time no talk! I just spend a week in Brighton with my sister, so I wanted to come and share some pictures from that trip and write a bit.

Enpäs ookaan kirjoittanut pitkään aikaan teille tänne mitään! Vietin viime viikon siskoni luona Brighttonissa niin teki mieli tulla jakamaan teille vähän tänne blogiinkin kuvia ja kirjoittaa.

A couple of weeks ago I booked a trip to go visit my sister Teresa in England. And honestly, I had the best week I've had in a very long time. We didn't do anything special, hanged around, ate a lot and laughed even more. It's the best when you have someone in your life like that, when you can be your total weird self. And it's even better when that person is your own sister.

Pari viikkoa sitten bookasin tosiaan aika spontaanin reissun moikkaamaan siskoani, Teresaa. Ja rehellisesti mulla oli paras viikko mitä mulla on ollut ihan super pitkään aikaan. Ei tehty mitään erikoista, kuhan hengaltiin, syötiin paljon ja naurettiin vielä enemmän. Yksistä parhaista asioista elämässä on sellaiset ihmiset joihin voi aina luottaa 100% ja joiden kanssa voi olla niin oma itsensä. Ja oon vielä niin onnekas että yksi niistä henkilöistä on mun oma siskoni.

We also had the greatest idea ever. WE ARE STARTING A PODCAST! We have already recorded the first couple of episodes. It's going to be in Finnish though, so sorry about that.

Saatiin myös paras idea ikinä. PÄÄTETTIIN ALOITTAA OMA PODCAST! Ollaan nauhoitettu pari ekaa jaksoa, ja uskon että tästä tulee tosi kiva juttu. Ideana on että jutellaan kahestaan kaikkia "tyttöjen juttuja" rennolla meinigillä. Ensimmäisessä jaksossa puhutaan meidän sisarussuhteesta ja tokana vuorossa on parisuhteet. Jaksot tulee ulos aina sunnuntaina, ja ne on tosiaan ihan suomeksi!

Pysykää siis kuulolla sunnuntaita varten!

I've also gotten questions about my blog. What's happening? Do I still blog? And to be fair, I just felt like I've needed some time off. Pretty much from all social medias.. And not just from my own social medias, but also I haven't followed like anyone anywhere.

I've been focusing on other things, and been thinking about myself and my life a lot. I actually feel like I could write more about this later so this post won't get now too deep.

Oon saanut myös tosi paljon kysymyksiä mun blogiini liittyen. Mitä oikein tapahtuu, kirjoitanko koko blogia enää? En oikein itsekään tiiä, tiedän vaan että oon tarvinnut aikaa ittelleni. Oon pysynytkin aikalailla poissa lähes kaikista sosiaalisista medioista. En vaan omastani, mutta en oo viime reilun kuukauden aikana seurannut rehellisesti ketään muutamaan.

Oon keskittynyt kaikkeen muuhun, miettinyt vähän itseäni ja elämääni. Mulla itse asiassa on pitkästä aikaa sellainen olo, että haluan kirjoittaa teille ja jakaa teidän kanssa. Tää blogi on viimeisen kuuden vuoden ajan ollut niin mun juttuni, oon rakastanut tätä niin paljon, ja on ollut jotenkin surullista miten kaiken keskellä hukkasin myös intohimoni tähän. Mutta multa tulee varmasti pidempi teksti pian, jossa kerron lisää ettei tää menee nyt liian syvälliseks.

It felt like spring in England. I think it was sunny everyday and like +10 degrees. Was so nice to actually get dressed when you didn't have to worry about freezing your ass off. Past weeks I've been going around in my super old Canada Goose and Uggs. They are the only things that actually keep me warm, and I'm in zero mood to buy any new winter gear. I have my eyes already in the spring and summer :-D

Englannissa oli siis ihan kevät sää! Vähän tuntui mielettömältä näiden pakkasten jälkeen. Joka päivä taisi olla auringoista ja + 10 astetta. Oli ihana kun pääsi taas vähän pukeutumaan.. Oon nimittäin viime viikot vetänyt täällä mun teiniaikojen toppatakissa ja Uggseissa. Koska ne varmaan mun ainoat vaatteet joilla oikeesti tarkenee.. Enkä todellakaan halua ostaa enää yhtään uutta talvivaatetta, mulla on jo katse keväässä ja kesässä :-D

And yeah, we spent even Valetine's day together. This was the first time in years, that I was single on Valentines. I don't know why I'm such a sucker for this kind of days, I just love to celebrate all occasions. And this year we decided to celebrate our friendship.. Let's just say we celebrated that well!

Vietettiin tosiaan myös ystävänpäivä yhdessä. Mun ensimmäinen ystävänpäiväni siis vuosiin, kun olin yksin. Tai en nyt yksin, mutta sinkkuna. En tiiä miks mä oon niin sucker aina kaikista merkkipäivistä, ja haluun aina juhlistaa kaikkia pieniäkin juttuja. No tänä vuonna sitten juhlistettiin mun ja siskoni ystävyyssuhdetta. Ja hyvin muuten juhlitettiinkin!

​I think that's pretty much everythign for this time. I feel like slowly starting to update my blog again more regularly. I could start by updating my banner pictures :-D

Have a lovely weekend sweeties!

​Sellaista! Mä tosiaan palailen teille varmasti pian. Enköhän mä laita tosissani tän blogin taas päivittymään vähän aktiivisemmin. Ekana voisin varmaan alottaa tosta bannerista :-D

Ja tosiaan muistakaa, sunnuntaina tulee ensimmäinen podcast jakso! Kivaa alkaavaa viikonloppua ihanat!

Paid collaboration with Daniel Wellington / Kaupallisessa yhteistyössä

So this year my Valentine's day will be a bit different than last years, since I'll be flying to England tomorrow. I'm going to visit my sister for a week, and since Valentines day is on Wednesday we've made some plans how we will spend it together. So I guess I can say that she is my Valentines this year! In the past week I've also been so lucky to notice how truly amazing people and friends I have around me. I'm so grateful for that!

Other than that I've been doing just fine. I've been doing a lot of things and just enjoyed every day. I even went and redid my driver's license, so I can now also check that out from my list.

So guys, do you have any plans how you are going to spend your Valentines day? Do you have someone special you want to celebrate with, a friend or maybe just have total alone time?

Daniel Wellington sent me this lovely box last week, and I got so happy. They have a Valentine's day offer now, that you get the little golden heart charm when you buy a leather strapped watch! How cute is that? You can either have it on your own watch or give it to someone. They have also some other offers at the moment, and if you want to get an extra -15% off use the code "nataliaoona". Get to their webshop from here . The discount can be combined with other offers!

I will talk to you guys soon again! Until that, hope you have an amazing week and lovely Valentine's day <3

Last week it snowed a lot in Helsinki! Tbh I don't care so much for the snow, sure it's nice since it's lighter outside, but like no. I rather to have +5 and rain. But last week it was so cold!!!

On Wednesday we took a ferry to Stockholm from Helsinki. We went to pick my stuff from there with a car! I hadn't been on a cruise for ages. I think the last time was in high school! Anyways, it was exactly what I remembered, absolutely nothing had changed :-D But hey, at least I got my stuff because it wouldn't have been possible to fly with everything.

In Stockholm I took my parents to Riche. They have the best meatballs ever! And of course, when you are in Sweden you need to eat meatballs. It's a must!

I've been catching up with old and new friends, and it has been so much fun to see everyone! I have to say, I've had such a warm welcome back to Helsinki <3

Last week me and @johannaturpeinen had a cozy afternoon in Kappeli. We couldn't decide if we should order Prosecco or tea, so we took both!

One of the sweetest girls I've ever met <3

I went and tried out a restaurant called Yesyesyes! with my dear friend Hanna. It was so delicious!!! Can't wait to eat there again! If you are in Helsinki and looking for a chill restaurant, I would definitely recommend to give it a go :)

I just want to end the post by saying THANK YOU for your sweet comments. You truly are amazing and you have no idea how you have cheered me up! I feel so lucky to have this platform to share my life with you, even though it can get a bit overwhelming at times.

Hope you all have a great week! <3

I can't believe that it's almost the end of January. On the other hand, I feel kind of relieved and happy since I've gotten a lot done and definitely started this year by turning pretty much everythhing around.

This month has probably been the slowest month ever when it comes to blogging. And as probably you could have guessed a lot as happened in the past months, but now I'm Helsinki. I've been here for some time now, and I'm here to stay. Feels so weird! Kind of unreal. And it's also like a big stone falling from my heart when I finally write these words out loud.

Life doesn't always work out the way you thought, but hey, you live and you learn. And like I've ALWAYS said, everything happens for a reason.

So that's how it is now and now you know.

The new trend in sneakers started in 2017 and it's called ugly sneakers or dad sneakers. Maybe you've seen them on instragram? I'm not quite sure if I love or hate this trend. Like obviously the sneakers look pretty ugly, but at the same time there is something pretty in them.

All the biggest fashion houses have ugly sneakers in their collections. The Balenciaga ones are most wanted ones (and they pretty much started the trend), and they are sold out almost everywhere. I've heard people are wait listed to get them.. I have to say they are a bit too much for me so if I end up buying a pair I will definitely go for more settle pair. But that is still a big if...

What do you guys think?

And if you love this trend make sure to keep your eyes open for some inspiration during the upcoming fashion weeks. I'm so sure that you will be seeing plenty of these shoes!

A few months ago I wrote a blog post telling that this whole social media thing had been feeling so overwhelming. I've also told that I've had a lot going on in my personal life which has been really intense. I just haven't had the strength to deal with all the negativity. Normally when my personal life is all good, I feel happy and strong, so I don't mind the negativity in social media and I just brush it off. But when I already feel bad and then I log in to my blog and have to deal with even more bad vibes it's has just been too much.

So why haven't I been blogging? Honestly I also feel kind of lost. I'm looking for my place in this crazy world, and we will see where I'll end up feeling like "yes! this it what I want to do". Meanwhile, I hope you guys understand and I SOOO appreciate all the support <3 It means everything to me! I like the saying "sometimes you need to get lost to find yourself" and that is what I'm living with right now.

I've also gotten a lot of questions if I'm also going to write in Finnish or have I switched totally in English? I honestly don't know. I've been writing my blog in Finnish for soon 6 years (feels so crazy!!!!), but like I said, lately I haven't been in the mood to read all the comments that my grammar is bad etc etc. So just for now I'll just write in English :-)
