With My Truck ♥

Hello my lovelies!

How are you all today? ♥

I'm super happy because I signed my internship papers a couple of days ago, so my summer will be spend working with marketing stuff - and I also get a giant monkey off my back as this will cover most of my mandatory internship for the degree. Now I just need to get few exams, one case and some other stuff done, and then I can officially say I'm on the smaller half of my studies. I'm so happy to finally feel like I actually can graduate and that I am on the right track with the business studies.

And that also makes me a better blogger, because this inner peace gives me new energy to write. At least, once I get through my exams. I will have a couple more later in the spring/in the early summer, but that won't bother me too much.

Okay, enough school rant? I think so too. Maybe we should proceed to the outfit of the day?

Simple look with a lovely shirt I hunted from a thrift store. I love absolutely every item in this outfit, and I think they play along quite nicely. The truck was a perfect backdrop for the photos, as it was pretty unusual - and more interesting than a plain parking lot. 

What do you guys think about this look? Let me know in the comments!

Now, I'm gonna go hit the bed as it's 1am, because I've deserved a good night's sleep after all the video shooting and other stuff today. More on that probably later on, but now, I need my sleep. Talk to you very soon though!

Have a wonderful weekend ♥

Blogger Night with Timanttiset & Pandora ♥

Hello lovelies!

How are you doing today? ♥

I've been enjoying a day off with editing photos and binge-watching Sex and the City for many hours now, but I'm also just getting ready to run some wedding errands soon (seriously I can't believe I will be posting our invites this week!). As we are going to check out some rings for July, I figured it's the perfect day to post about the blogger event I was invited last Thursday.

On Thursday night, a bunch of bloggers from Tampere got together at Timanttiset City Kulta to socialize, network and most of all learn a thing or two about jewelry. Most specifically, we got to hear quite a lot about Pandora's beautiful line of jewelry.

Even though I had heard about Pandora and had seen their advertising in many places, I myself wasn't very familiar with the brand before. What I learned was that they make such a variety of jewelry - there's something for practically everyone. I also love that their charms are so detailed!

I like the fact you can get different bases for your jewelry, there's everything from the sweet silver things to the edgier leather bracelets, which to me creates a fantastic variety when creating your own jewelry. I also spotted some charms that were pretty irresistible (meaning I will go get them sooner or later).

When looking at these adorable pieces it amazes me how they're all handmade by artisans. Just, wow. Pretty impressive, isn't it?

We got to plan and try out our own jewelry there as well. they were generous enough to gift us the basic silver bracelets, so we can all start creating our own dream bracelets with the charms we collect. I personally made up something like this:

There were to much lovelies to choose from, and I started putting mine together with the pink flamingo. Although this one is very simple and all, I think I will end up with a bracelet full of adorable little charms. 

I also spotted some other goodies in Timanttiset, like bracelets and watches (see below).

If any of you lovelies live in the Tampere area, head out to Timanttiset City Kulta and mention you are my reader, and they will give you a discount of -25% from a product of your choosing. You can get this offer until 31th of May, so go on and shop!

FIN: Timanttiset City Kulta halusi hemmotella blogini lukijoita -25% alennuksella, kun mainitset lukevasi blogiani. Käväise siis toukokuun loppuun mennessä Timanttisilla, mikäli mielessäsi on jokin koruostos!

Big thanks to Timanttiset and Pandora, for hosting this lovely evening full of jewelry and amazing blogger ladies! It was such a fun event and I absolutely loved meeting other bloggers. Hopefully there will be other events like this in the future!

Have a fabulous day! ♥

Foodie Post: Fruit Smoothie ♥

Hello lovelies!

How are you all? ♥

Today it's time for a super quick post, as I'm just sharing a super simple smoothie recipe I loved doing a while back when testing our new blender for the first time. This on makes a nice dessert, breakfast or even a light lunch, and it helps out if you have a bad craving for sweets but don't want so much (added) sugar.

Fruit Smoothie

1 dl (0,4 cups) raspberries
1,5 dl (0,6 cups) orange juice

Put everything in blender, and pulse through until smooth.

So there, a fun quick recipe that's super easy to do. I love smoothies and will start doing those more in the summer as we get more domestic goods to use in it. So stay tuned for more recipes!

Now, I will go catch some well-deserved sleep, and hopefully tomorrow evening, I will have a bit longer post here for you. See you later my loves!

Have a lovely week! ♥
