Return to the time when travel itself is a destination!


We are on the road for three days already. Yes, we are having a road trip! A little update of our drive, drive, drive schedule - we have reached wonderful little city called Lindau, which is near Swiss border but more about that soon. Anete is driving like a pro and our Ford is feeling like Ferrari. Oh well if our parents call we drive only on "120 km/h" hahahahaha! 

We are of to Zurich one of my favourite cities in the world! Talk to you soon!

REUNION


One of the coolest things about the summer is not just relaxing at home and #beinglazyjustforabit but as well meeting all the friends who also have come home from all around the world. 

Here is Anete whom I bet you remember! I am her FAN No. 1 (some might try to argue with me but I am not greedy and I can share my place with others too hahaha). And when I am not able to see her face to face I defiantly stalk her on Instagram, which she does like a pro, as well as keep an eye on her blog.

My other summer's-favourite-thing-to-do is READ, READ, R-E-A-A-D! Biographies are on my top favourite list and my latest crush is Diana Vreeland. I love reading them because they reflect person in the light that shows their strengths as well as their faults. You see that none of them were perfect but they still could achieve incredible things. 

So what is your latest book crush?

And hope you are enjoying the summer or as Diana would say hope your summer is DI-VINE!!!

NAANTALI


After an all-night-long train ride* from Rovaniemi to Turku, yesterday we arrived to a little town called Naantali. Some of you might know it for the Moomin World that is the main attraction down here. However, as I probably have enjoyed children fun activities for a lifetime by this moment, I more enjoyed the beautiful city with its wooden architecture (that reminded me of the one we have in Jurmala). What I notice was that locals had filled their windowsills with different decorations. Some had Moomin himself gazing outside but mostly we could see little ships and boats carefully laid out.

*Which was the same "chic" as the one Carry and Samantha had in the SATC. I probably looked like this... only minus the champagne glass - you know we are having a family trip after all.

TO THE NORTH. FINLAND.


I know, I know... we have lots of catching up to do. But long story short - I was in London, then I was in Latvia and now I am in Finland. I was like WHAAT?? as well but this morning I was in Tallinn, then in Helsinki and now in Tampere. We are moving north and you are thinking right - it's family trip time. Showing my little sister everything from Moomin to Santa Claus. And you know how the family trips goes #lastminute ... yes, we nearly missed the ferry (the same as we did when we had the same trip 10 years ago #somethingsneverchange). Luckily my mom knows how to speed up properly and we managed to get to Finland. 

Soooo stay tuned we gonna have a lot of Finnish children-fun-things happening over the next week!

ALL THE EYES ON YOUR...


... POCKETS!

My first thought was: How cool is this?
My second thought: I wonder if it is comfortable to sit down with these hahaaa...
Third one (me trying to place my own 'pockets' on an imaginary chair and realising it's SAFE): Phew! Alright, then how cool is this? #second_time_around

If my not so mastery fashion master mind is not letting me down these trousers are from Louis Vuitton SS14. I love that the detailing is the same black as the trousers... you know ain't need to look like Christmas Tree to have some party going on #pants!

SNAP!


So have I told you about how Alexa got "deported" back to Paris. Well not reeeaaallly deported but she still missed some of the deadlines and had to be in back home for that time being. Nevertheless, I am still allowed to make jokes about how "terrible" it is to have extended holidays in Paris! (Read sarcasm, sarcasm, sarcasm hahaha) Send me to Paris a-n-y time, please!!!

Anyways, the other day I helped her with photographing one of the project that she styled while, in the meantime, Alexa snapped some polaroid photos of girls. You remember Asel and Anelya... or Anelya and Asel (ahhh one of the world's mysteries but one day we will be able to distinguished them!!! Promise!) 

BTW how cool those polaroids are? I want to get a camera on my own!
