My name is Tiina L, and this blog is my little project where my creative Alter Egos can come out and play. Perhaps I should describe myself briefly:
As an Ageless Diva, I will not reveal my exact age... Not that there is anything wrong with aging, and I am definitely in favour of aging naturally. But just in case, I guess it is a good thing that I'm also a Dilettante Artist with a serious Photoshop addiction.

I am a classy and fabulous Amateur Fashionista, whose shoes always seem to be in the wrong country. This is probably because I'm also a Lifestyle Commuter who likes to travel light, jetting from Homebase 1 (a big city in a small Nordic country) to Homebase 2 (a small town in the U.K.). Even though I breeze through airports with the elegant ease of a seasoned frequent flyer, I am a Bad Tourist who prefers room service and shopping to sightseeing.

I would also like to be an elegant and competent hostess, so I am organising my blog posts into categories to make it easier for you, my dear visitor, to find content that matches your interests:

  • Outfits: all the outfits I've posted on the blog
  • Style Icon: this is where I discuss and pay tribute to people who have influenced my personal sense of style
  • Style Ideas: Amateur Fashionista's musings, raves and rants on all things related to fashion and style. 
  • Travel: when you want to know where to have really good coffee, or if Hilton really is the same by any name…
  • Travel Wardrobe: what to wear and how to pack. My motto is: life is often complicated; packing doesn't have to be.
  • Let's Talk: all the 'serious' topics sensible bloggers would stay away from: politics, current issues... all discussed with a hefty dose of sarcasm and satire
  • For Laughs: I'm sarcastic, and I can laugh at myself...
  • Dilettante Artist: my other blog where I let loose my 'artistic' side (= my Photoshop addiction...)

Now, if you want to know more, 
how about these 5 random facts about me:

  1. My wedding reception was held at an airport, naturally
  2. I studied fashion design when I was young but have never worked in fashion
  3. I don’t like looking at pictures of myself because I always look awkward
  4. I really, really hate high heels and clothes that need to be dry-cleaned
  5. My hobby is making retro comic-book style illustrations based on old photographs
