Baltic Sea



Here is my travel photo diary showing my trip to the Estonian capital last week. Tallinn is a very clean and lovely city. Even better- it is small enough so you can walk practically everywhere by foot. I had been to Tallinn many times but I visited it again after some couple of years. It is undoubtedly more beautiful during summer with hydrangeas, open cafes and restaurants in every corner. 
I am sharing some adresses and tips for those who are planning their trip to Scandinavia and Baltic States. Hope you will like it and have a wonderful week!




Lots of love,

Friday favorites: strawberry cheesecake


As the strawberry season has started, I decided to bake a delicious and creamy strawberry cheesecake. These warm June evenings is my favorite time for trying new summertime recipes, inviting friends and enjoying the home-made desserts in the garden.This cheesecake with strawberry topping is perfect for filling up a Friday evening by baking. If you are interested in trying it, here is the recipe: 


For the crust:

100 g butter, melted
200 g almond biscuits
1 lemon or lime

For the filling:

250 g mascarpone
200 g sour cream
50 g sugar
2 eggs

For the topping:

400 g fresh strawberries

Start by pounding biscuits in small pieces for the cake crust. Add the melted butter and the juice of half of lemon or lime. Line the cake form with baking paper, spread the crust in the form. Preheat oven to 160 degrees.
* Then continue with the filling by mixing mascarpone, sugar, eggs and the other half of lemon or lime juice. Pour the filling into the prepared crust.
* Bake it for 50 minutes and let the cheesecake cool down afterwards.
* Finally the best part- decorating. Cut strawberries in small pieces for the topping.

Enjoy the cake and have a great weekend! :)




After the graduation ceremony, we headed to an amazing restaurant Koya in the Andrejosta district together with my family and closest friends. I could not have wished for a better way to celebrate the end of high school. It is also the place where I went yachting almost a year ago (see the post Evening on a yacht ). Thank you so much for the lovely comments and have a great week!

I was wearing:
Coat: ZARA (last season)
Dress: Desigual
Scarf: Desigual
Shoes: Vince Camuto

Flowers, beautiful dresses, smile on everybody's face, happiness and gratitude- that pretty much sums up mine graduation ceremony yesterday. It is hard to put in words how quickly senior year passed by and what an amazing time it was. Now it is the moment to enter in the big world and follow the dreams.

With my dear mum

It is only the beginning for a whole new race and adventures.

In bloom


Hello everyone! How was your weekend? I am feeling indescribably happy as the final exams have officialy ended. This weekend I went out to enjoy the sunny weather as well as to catch the golden light.In the end I realised that almost everything was in bloom. It was amazing to see how much the scenery has changed during these past few weeks of  exam madness. I hope you will like these photos.

Grenoble in spring


Here is a little throwback to my trip to Grenoble during Easter holidays. It was great to hike in the Bastille fortress together with my sister who was studying in Grenoble for one year. I really enjoyed the time with her in this city in French Alps. Hope you will like these pictures! :)
