It's been a very long while since my last post. I've decided to put my blog on a break due to time limitations. However, I'm more active on Instagram than ever!! We have bought our first own home in Singapore and I can't wait to share photos from the interior design process and other explorations in Asia and Finland coming up my way.
Apologies for the long silence. I've been thinking. I've been thinking whether I still want to keep this blog. You see, part of me thinks that posting outfits and superficial content is too shallow and even immature for my age ;D Yet, I don't want the burden of constantly coming up with deep thoughts on the blog. The reason I started this online diary was to capture the happy moments of my life, share them with you and keep it all light&dreamy. I also love photographing. Still all this seems somehow selfish, posting photos of myself and my life on the internet where it will be forever. Is it all worth it? Does someone really enjoy reading this so much? I have a full time job too and blogging regularly does take time. We'll see. I'm still thinking...
Anyways, here are some superficial outfit photos from the last post ;)
Shorts: dVb Top: Mango Shoes: Hobbs Necklace: from Finland
It's again fall (although it's eternal summer in Singapore haha) and time for new things! I'm soon starting in a new job, we have a new home and have I not told you how much I love new beginnings! :) A couple of weeks back we headed to Marina Barrage for a champagne picnic. Outfit pics will follow! We packed champagne, home baked bagels and sushi in a cooler bag and off we went. The thing I love the most about Singapore are the warm, cozy nights when I never get cold no matter how long I sit outside watching the night get dark...
My morning starts every day with a good cup of strong espresso with milk, and a generous amount of homemade chocolate. It's always a winner! This is just to wish you all a happy and bright day today! <3
How to be happy? That is the big question. Somehow it seems not to be as simple as it sounds. There are just so many reasons not to be happy, or satisfied, with life. In the society of today, we are all living a life surrounded by media - sometimes to the extend that we don't recognize anymore what is real and what looks real. People start comparing themselves to others; to Facebook friends, to celebrities, to photos in magazines, even to bloggers. Yet none of it is real, there are always two sides of a coin and perfection neither exists nor is something anyone should aim at. Think about it, are the people you love the most perfect? If not, why should you be.
I see the aim for perfection linked to another issue. The fact that we can't have everything, and the disappointment that follows when realizing it. The constant want for something we don't have isn't making us happier. People tend to think that once they have succeeded in that something, then they will be happy. Once they have a good job. Once they are married. Once they get that that luxurious item. Then it magically happens. Unfortunately, this is not true. The things we have, have accomplished or own do not make us happy. The reality is also, not all of us ever get what we want. Happiness is an attitude, thus the only solution is to change that. Happiness is being grateful for what we have right now. It's being satisfied with our lives as they are. Not richer, not more beautiful, not with someone else, not any better. Just as it is. It's about noticing the small things that are absolutely free and that everyone has, equally. It's about giving yourself a hug to say; it's good enough, you're good enough. And you have a right to be happy, right now.
