I posted some of these pictures on Instagram few weeks ago and for one I wrote ”I forgot I’m not Blair Waldorf”. It was very spontaneous as is writing this post. I just got very Inspired what I wrote. The day I took these pictures was beautiful. I had day off and I was just exploring London and of course shoot these pictures. To be completely honest I can’t even remember what else I did in that day. I only remember I felt amazing. I looked fabulous and I knew it.

We are what we wear. Our looks sent thousands of messages to the people we do and do not know from strangers on the street to the people we meet everyday at work, school and home. People who says they don’t care what they wear and wear the most comfortable cozy clothes can’t understand why people have to try to impress others, but that is not always the truth. Feeling comfortable doesn’t always mean cozy. Wearing fitted clothes may feel irritating but isn’t it nice to dress up for dinner or party? It’s about the feeling of looking good, not cozy. Many times the feeling of looking great beats the cozy jumper.

I hate I always keep saying this, and I promise I will keep saying; people are like books. You can never judge book by its cover but don’t you want to pic up the most beautiful and interesting ones?

Love,

I was last night at Brighton with guys celebrating the pride and partying so hard my shoes got broken. We took mornings first train at 3.50am Sunday morinng back to London and I was home 7.am. Before that I went to Starbucks to have muffin for breakfast. I walked fifteen minutes from there to home to go bed and sleep. I love sun rise and walking home at morning after great night when the Sun is in his way up to the sky, most of the people is still sleeping, somone already working when they open bakerys and clean strets.

I slept good six hours and woke up to the light of the shining Sun from my window. Slowly I have been starting my day drinking coffee and went cute ally near me to take these pictures capturing pretty well what casual Sunday should feel like. Even tough I just want to go back bed, I have to go to do my groceries and cook some dinner. And maybe take a bath to get rid of oll glitter still in my hair. I feel like risotto.

On Tuesday 13th of June I decided I move to London and just before midnight I booked my flights. On Thursday 15th of June I walked out of the gates of my garrison one last time. Around 8p.m I left the army for good and 12 hours later on Friday 16th of June I left my home and moved to nice Hostel in London. One week later on Friday 23rd of June I moved to my lovely room in Earl’s Court and on the next day, Saturday 24th of June I completed my first shift at Starbucks near by. Almost one month later today on Thursday 20th of July I am finally writing this post and telling you I moved to London.

There is something I don’t like in these pictures. I have edited these over a few hours now but they still don’t please me. The problem is not the outfit or the awkward poses. I look kind of contrived in these pictures and I don’t like it. I was a bit tired, perhaps, but I wasn’t irritated or boarded at all. There is something in my expression I really hate.I could write about how I like this outfit. I could write about the pink scarf and my current obsession to the color pink. I could write how lighter colors make me feel better and tell one or two stories about my favourite pair of shoes from Tommy Hilfiger. I love to write about fashion and my style, show you my favorite pieces, give advises and tell stories but that is not what I want to write about today. There have been posts where I have described my looks and many of them have been very real. I’ve been truly excited about Gucci silk scarf, leopard coat, and told you honestly how I feel about wearing head to toe black, but too may times I have just written something pretentious about the look the just to have something you to read. Writing something from the perspective I don’t feel like doesn’t motivate me.

A few years ago I realized I could get something bigger out from my blog. I dreamed about bigger influence, decided to take blogging more seriously and blogging became harder and I become more reserved. The best posts is born by writing with the thoughts going trough my mind. Nowadays I think quite lot what I write and unfortunately I have written post without being fully with in it. I haven’t lied but the style I write is not always hundred percent me. I thought about posting only the pictures because describing the outfit would only cause terrible text, but I wondered my expressions and it raised up these feelings and I just wanted to write them down. I bet this will be one of my favorite posts from this spring. It is crazy how writing your thoughts can make you so much more motivated.

I’m still kind of lost with my blog. I don’t have clear direction or vision to follow and that greats me the writer’s block. I stop writing and posting. I shoot pictures but they stay unpublished. My situation has its influence of course. I am in the army so  I don’t have all the time and motivation I would have in my regular life. I don’t want force me to blog. I blog because I love to do it. When I don’t know what to write, even tough I have the ideas,  I easily get sad and don’t open the blog for days or weeks. I have plenty of ideas, but I am missing the bigger view about what I want my blog to be. I have lots inspiration at the moment and I won’t let it down this time. I will write and post different type of post and we will see where it get us. For a while I will forget the ideal idea of my blog and go with the flow.

Even though I might seem I was a bit sad I am happy. I am very happy actually. And I truly hope you are too!

Love,

#fashionrevolution I’ve been knowing about this week coming but honestly I didn’t know it is 24.4-30.4.2017 this week. I have this week off from the army and have plans, but I obviously I rescheduled my week again. I am busy but I have to write quickly and tell you I am in, and you should too. As you know fashion plays a big part in my life even tough I haven’t written that much about it, the fashion revolution is very actual for me.  because during the past year I have been more interested but

During the past year, I’ve become more interested about the origin of our clothes, companies and how everything really works. I’ve seen few documentaries and read articles but I don’t know enough to tell and educate you guys. The world of fashion is complicated, twisted and things definitely are not what brands try to sell and tell us and I am not talking only about fast fashion which fashion revolution week is basically all about.

Fast fashion. I love the idea of cheaper clothes, available to everyone but the more cheaper the clothes become, the bigger the real cost of them gets. I am talking about the people who makes our clothes. I hate the business idea of fast ”clothes”, it has nothing to do with fashion and design anymore. It is all about business, making a high profit to the company owners, while the workers and environment suffer.

I really have to run now, I apologize the fast written text but this is really important. After reading this post go to fashionrevoluation.org and read more about this week, your local events and support you can give. There is a fun global challenge to challenge our clothing companies to show who make our clothes. Check also the true cost and just google fast fashion and learn more about or beloved companies like ZARA, H&M and Top Shop/Man.

Clothes is made by Real People.
