How to Survive Winter (Coming from Someone Who Survived Their Last One in Finland)

Sunday, November 30, 2014

If you had asked me what I thought about winter two years ago, I would have been a girl version of the Grumpy Cat: I. Hate. It. I thought it was pointlessly cold, pointlessly unpleasant and just... well, pointless.

But then again, you could say I was a bit of an ignorant when it comes to winter. I neglected proper clothing for the sake of looks, and I pretty much didn't behave as if it's really cold. That's why I loathed winter: I didn't know it. So when I was forced to spend a winter in Finland, I got to know it. Really know it. And having spent winter there made me realize two things: winter in Belgrade, or pretty much anywhere else in continental Europe, is nothing compared to the one in Scandinavia; and it was good that I had to spend it there, because now I know all the do's and don'ts. Today I'm sharing them with you.

Weekend Reads #5

Friday, November 28, 2014

Taking baby steps to reviving the blog again. (Posted a late Instagram update yesterday). And not missing the Weekend Reads. I'm actually quite happy to prepare these posts, every time I read something new I wonder if it would suit Weekend Reads. Well, I hope I'm bringing some fun/interesting/useful content here!

Late, late, late: Instagram Sept & Oct

Thursday, November 27, 2014

I feel like the White Rabbit from Alice in the Wonderland: Oh my god, oh my god, I'm so late! I usually post Instagram posts at the beginning of the (odd) month, but this month I just didn't feel... inspired. I don't know. I kinda neglected this lil' online place of mine. Well, soon enough it will be time for another Instagram update, so I better deliver this one! So, September and October. September seems like ages ago. Which is a pitty, because it almost feels like a previous life. And it was the coolest.

Before I start with the photos, I just want to wish a happy Thanksgiving to all the Americans who stop by! I hope you have a wonderful holiday and a wonderful dinner. Have I told you that I had a Thanksgiving dinner two weeks ago, hosted by our American teacher? It was that early because it was the date everyone could make it, and it was my first Thanksgiving ever. I had no idea traditional American food was SO FREAKIN GOOD. I was so full. That turkey, and the sweet potatoes, and the beetroot and apple salad, and the stuffing, and the gravy, and I'm just craving that right now!! What a night. 

Weekend Reads #4

Friday, November 21, 2014

I cannot believe that I never blog if I don't have the time, yet I don't want to miss this new feature I introduced on Fridays. But I guess if I cannot offer you my traveling adventures or something else I've come up with, it's only fair to make it up to you with some links to keep you occupied. And those deffo take less time to be delivered to you. So, here we go.

Weekend Reads #3

Friday, November 14, 2014


Hello lovlies!

So, as you can see, my last post is from last Friday, which means I'd had a very busy week at uni. I have to admit that I started counting the days to the Christmas break, which also means going home! I need a break. Two days in Amsterdam over the weekend were great, but I need more, haha! Amsterdam is, by the way, such a cutie, and currently it's nr. 2 in my list "most beautiful cities in the world". (Do you remember which one is the first?)

This weekend will be devoted to a lot of decluttering: I decided I had too many things in my wardrobe I rarely ever wear (one needs space for new season's items, right?!), and plus, you wouldn't believe the condition of my Downloads folder. I just cleaned my Desktop a bit, it was such a mess, I wasn't able to see the background properly. Now it's all neat and clean, and I have this as the background.

Weekend Reads #2

Friday, November 7, 2014

Looking forward to seeing this for myself later today!
Hello friends,

Another weekend is just around the corner! I woke up at 6:45 without the alarm - that's close to a miracle - and now I'm sipping on my coffee, after I'd had my breakfast. Which I made last night. (Overnight oats - to make sure I have my oats even if there's a chance I'd be lazy to make an oatmeal.) I don't know who I am and what happened to... well, me, but I like it. I am by no means a morning person, but I really, really like it when I'm able to take it easy - instead of running around all panicky because I don't know what to wear, and the class starts in less than half an hour. No fun.

Anyway, I'm going to Amsterdam this afternoon! And I'm super excited, I've never been there before. My best friend from my hometown moved there in 2005 and has been inviting me to visit ever since, but I never had both the money and the time. So after nine years, I'll finally see him in a place other than our town!!

What are your plans for the weekend? For the second time, I'm delivering some awesome places in the cyberspace for you to check out. Have fun!

Escape from the City: Rostock

Monday, November 3, 2014

Everybody knows how much I loved Berlin and its vibrant atmosphere - but sometimes you just need a break. That's why one day in September I woke up at 5 AM and hopped on a bus to Rostock, a town on the Baltic sea only 2 hours away, and then went to a nearby sea resort, Warnemünde. So calm. Fresh. Relaxing. You cannot believe you'll be back in the city by the end of the day. And when you do, you feel reborn. Energized. Your batteries full to the maximum. Ready to tackle the routine.

Venice Photo Diary

Sunday, November 2, 2014

Last time I told you about things worth seeing/doing in Venice. Today I just wanted to share some more photos of this beautiful place, so I'll let the photos speak for themselves. Don't you just hear them saying 'come to me, come to me'?!
