tartan kind of thursday


I feel like I’m alive again. Slowly but surely waking up from my winter coma. I don’t know what it is that suddenly made this, but I’m continuing with every little thing that could have helped. Over-eating berries and vitamins, drinking coffee in the mornings again, and just not giving up on dark days. Today it was sunny – thank god – and I had to get some quick outfit pictures while grabbing coffee and meeting my friend for lunch. Later another friend came over to cook me dinner (I took care of the wine part), yum it was delicious, now I’m just happy and tired and blogging before bed. I have a couple new books I can’t wait to start, I’m addicted on reading again. It’s the best thing to do before going to sleep, calms down and clears mind of everything. I hope you are still there, even though it might feel like I’ve been a little distant and away here on the blog lately, finally I can say that I’m back! Good night people <3

Vihdoin tuntuu siltä, kuin heräilisi tästä talvikoomasta. En tiedä mikä mua on auttanut, mutta joka ikinen pieni asia mikä onkaan voinut olla, niistä mä pidän kiinni. Marjojen ja vitamiinien tankkausta, aamukahveja taas tauon jälkeen (kahvittomuus ei tehny yhtään hyvää!), ja vain sinnikkäästi liikkeellä pysymistä synkimpinäkin päivinä, vaikka aamulla tekisi mieli jatkaa unia ja pitää verhot kiinni iltaan asti. Eieiei! Tänään paistoi pitkästä aikaa, ja piti saada asukuvat samalla kun treffasin ensin äitiäni kahvin merkeissä ja myöhemmin kaveriani lounaalla. Illalla toinen kaverini tuli kokkailemaan mulle ihanan ruoan, mä hoidin viinipuolen, ah nyt on rentoutunut olo! Vielä bloggailua ja kohta uuden kirjan aloittamista ennen nukkumaanmenoa. Halusin tulla täällä vielä huikkaamaan sen, että nyt tää mun poissaolevuus bloginkin puolella saa loppua, talvi on välillä perseestä mutta sitä suuremmalla syyllä nyt niitä kivoja juttuja! Hyvää yötä <3

    it so good you’re back and I do hope you are! I’ve been following you like forever and I managed to sense that you’ve been a little distant here recently. Anyway, that’s fine by me. If you don’t feel like being around sometimes you need to take your time. I’m going through a bad patch right now, having some kind of winter-no-sun-everything-sucks crisis. SOS!

    You look so fresh and pretty! Love this outfit, so inspiring.

    Love you girl! I’m happy to see you!

    my outfit today was quite the same. jeans, black boots, tartan scarf and grey coat. :D simple but effective. :)) I’m happy that you’re back. :))

    Hey lovely Marianna,

    good to see that you’re back. I think it’s okay for any blogger to be distant and away from their blog for a while. :) as long as you find your way back, and I’m happy you did! You look gorgeous on these pics. I love the Zara scarf, I’ve been wearing mine nearly every day! Probably my best purchase last autumn, thanks to you, haha ;)

    Do you have any book recommendation from the ones you found recently? I’m looking for new reading inspirations and you always do an amazing job in inspiring me (in everything!)

    You’re the best! <3

    Fantastic casual look :)
    Love your coat!

    Exactly! I totally agree with you. I adore books too. I recommend ‘Bringing Home the Birkin: My Life in Hot Pursuit of the World’s Most Coveted Handbag’ – Michael Tonello’s :)

    Don’t worry darling, we totally get that way too. I can’t believe how depressing this winter has been so far. And we are getting a snow storm almost every week. It’s ridiculous!

    I love the outfit! But I was wondering what you are wearing on your nails?…it looks pretty natural…but there seems to be some kind of sheen :)

    Lovely outfit Marianna. Great combination of the white coat, black pants and red tartan scarf. It all looks so fresh with the coat.

    I’ve been getting more energy out of running again lately. I picked up my training scheme again and I’m back on the roll. The days are finally getting longer so I go running right after I return from work, and I have a lot of energy for the rest of the evening. :) Welcome back sweet Marianna!

    Hey Marianna,
    Glad you are emerging from your winter doldrums. I’ve also been suffering from these awful dark skies, so much that I actually bought one of those daylight lamps recently and it’s made a HUGE difference. Suddenly I’m motivated to do things and be creative and take risks again. :) Mine is called the Impulsion DayLight but I think any brand could help you if you continue to have trouble.
    Love from the Netherlands

    I can’t forget about those boots! I’m so in love with them, but I can’t find them anymore :( but by the way, you’re style is so inspiring, I love the classic look and still you manage to put your own ‘touch’ into your outfits. Amazing <3

    Aivan ihana vaalea takki sulla! Just jotain tuon tapaista oon itsekin vähän etsiskellyt :)
    Pakko lisätä vielä että oot Marianna mulle loputon inspiraation lähde, joka ikinen sun postaus on niin harkittu ja loistava sekä sisällöltään että kuviltaan! Saan sun tyylistä tosi paljon vinkkejä omaan pukeutumiseen, sun kodin sisustuksesta nyt puhumattakaan :) ihanaa kevään odotusta ja jatka samaan malliin tyttö!

    I love winter, so I don’t mind the cold and dark days, but soon enough it will be summer! Stay warm and drink hot coffee! :)
    Love that scarf from Zara!

    Oh – My – God ! – Your sunglasses – where did you get them? They’re looking awesome!
    By the way, I also feel terrible during the darker months and as soon as the sun is coming out again, my whole body kind of wakes up and I feel better immediately.
    But for those month in the winter I try to help myself with a lot of candles, movies and days off in general.
    I definitely know how you feel!

    I love visiting your blog from time to time. The pictures are beautiful and a welcome refuge from the day to day routine. I live in Canada and it’s pretty cold here too but thanks for making winter look fun.

    hello! I really love your blog and you and your pictures! Just wondering what lens do you use with your d7000? it seems so nice and bright!
