CROSSROADS


  I've been editing my S/S 16 haul video and here's a little sneak peek of my favourite outfit. The video will be out tomorrow. :) I'm glad that this time I really thought through what I needed and how I wanted my summer look to be like. Colours are mainly blues, whites and light shades of brown and I really love how everything goes together. ^^ To be honest I never thought it would be possible for me to find my own style. I've always known what I like, I've always known what kind of vibe I want, but somehow still found it incredibly hard to find a way to combine it all. I wanted to be classy but not stiff, I wanted to be earthy but not too all over the place. And now I've found the perfect "crossroads" for me. :)

  But now, just so you know, I am sadly forced to have a little break. There are some annoyingly difficult things happening in my personal life and I am quite upset about it. Let's just say that it includes my family and a hospital. That's all I'm gonna say about it now. Then there's this other thing called "studies". I have two weeks to wrap things up as thoroughly as possible and I really need all the time I can get. So, the next post will be up on 31st. Unless of course I happen to have time and something to write about before that! See you soon. :)

W16 KAJO


  Morning! Yesterday we headed to Helsinki with one of my fellow students. We went to see this W16 Kajo fashion show at Kaapelitehdas. It was basically the graduates of HAMK presenting their final lines and we kinda went to "check out the competition", you know. ;) And of course just for fun. It is also always important to know what's happening in your field. It'll give you inspiration, ideas and fortunately in some cases, hope. Before the show we had a couple coffees and lots of talk and after the show it was time to sit down for a quick supper.

  It was late when we parted and you don't believe how ready I was to go home... and to bed. Took a train, which was apparently a wrong one, and got kicked out haha! That meant one hour more time to hang out at a train station. Cool. Friday 13th or what? Now isn't Friday 13th, but it sure feels like it. You know why? I woke up, walked into our kitchen and noticed a huge empty spot right there where our coffeemaker should be. :D I'm dying inside. Thank you Iiro for leaving me some in that thermos on the kitchen counter, though... not. If you don't hear from me again I'm propably in prison for murdering a coffeemaker stealing monster. It was self-defence. I'm gradually starting to believe that coffee addiction might be a real thing... ^^

MOTHER'S DAY @ DERBY


  Me not being a mother didn't stop me from having an amazing Mother's Day. We got to enjoy a beautiful sunny day at the Tuusula's Derby and we also got to enjoy it in the gracious shade of the VIP tent. What would be better than a glass of wine served with heavenly coctail treats, beautiful weather, beautiful horses and the thrill of a competition. Well, at least for me, nothing!

  After spending my day outside I crawled into the shadows of my parents' living room and we had a movie night with my mom. Couldn't recommend "Imitation Game" more. It is an amazing movie and I had to show it to my mom since she also is a fan of that kind of drama. And Cumberbatch's voice... ;) My mom had cooked for us too and yeah... gotta say that I had a fantastic day! Except for a little family drama which gladly ended up fine and everyone's O.K. ^^ How was your weekend? What did you get for your mom? I was a bad child and didn't get windflowers that I normally do. But I did get pastries! :D

NEW IN & CATCH UP



  Hello guys, what's up? First of all, I need to say thank you to all of you who answered the questions on my last post. It was very helpful and I truly appreciate that you helped me with this one, cheers! All your comments and wishes are now taken into consideration. Well, let's just say that you didn't ask anything I wouldn't be happy to do, so... ;)

  This week has been a crazy summer shopping week! Or it has lasted for a couple of weeks now, let's be honest, but it all culminated in this particular week. I have now kinda developed a shopping rhythm for my self: buy everything you need for the up coming season all at once in spring and fall, avoid heavy shopping in between. And I think it's a good idea because you save money by avoiding multiple minor shopping trips and you can decide the whole nature of your wardrobe for the season.


  One purchase I'm very excited about are these Tory Burch platform espadrilles. Espadrilles are such a classic, but didn't feel like getting the more traditional model. So I was thrilled to find these from The Outnet! They are relax but classy at the same time, love them! Also got something else pretty amazing but you'll see it a bit later. ;)

  Oh my, there's been a lot going on lately. Like... blog plans, studies (yes, still!), studio, other pretty cool plans, more pretty cool plans and a lot of personal little things that need attention too. My brain is buzzing for a change (...) but not in a bad way. Actually feel like I'm too stoked about everything. :3


  And in the middle of all these things I created an Instagram account for our sausages. :'D Priorities, right? But we thought with Iiro that it would be fun to do so. So, if you are interested in the daily lifes of our doxies you can find them @TheWienerBabies. :D Okay but now I'll just keep working on my blog project so I can get it out at some point. I think it's going to be so nice. ^^ See you again on next Tuesday. Bye!

A LITTLE REQUEST


  Somewhere in the relatively near future my blog is going to undergo some big changes. I am taking my time with this one, though, because I want the outcome to be something that I personally love. As you might remember I did talk about my blogging goals at some point. And now it's finally time for some action! So, my friends, I'd love to hear what you especially like about my blog. What are your favourite kind of posts? Is there something you'd like me to do more often? Why do you come here? I sincerely want to hear what you have to say so I can create a place where we can all enjoy ourselves. :)

HAIR DOWN


  I've been missing these days! These days when you can keep hair down without it immediately turning into a flat and frizzy mess. Or my mane will always be frizzy in a way but you know, now it's in somehow controllable state. I washed and braided it before bed and I like the kind of "sheepdog" finish. And this hair in the pics had already been outside for several hours in extremely rainy and windy weather. So, I'm impressed. ^^

  And.... How perfect are these curls for beaching? Like "surfer girl goes to Coachella and next day wakes up in a van with a hangover and somehow still manages to look cool" -curls. Love it! :3

BRAIN FUNCTION ZERO


  No idea where it came from. Poorly slept nights or some super early spring allergies? Who knows but my head has been hazy as hell. Eventually it got to a point where it was difficult to even manage such a simple thing as talking to people. Not fun when you need to, for example, serve customers... But a little game night with friends gave my brain its long needed break. It's amazing to have people around with whom you can just be your own awkward, embarrassing and silly self. Those kind of creatures are rare and I'm lucky to have a few as my friends. :)

  Tonight's goal, though, is to go to bed before ten and hopefully that will help with my head. Don't know if I'm becoming a granny 'cause my ultimate sleeping routine seems to be from 8pm to 7am. Or even 6am! Neat. But days do feel longer when you wake up early so guess that's only a good thing. ^^ I'm rambling, good night!

BUILDING SUMMER WARDROBE


  I survived last week! Just needed a full day Netflix marathon on Sunday and now I'm packed with energy again. :) Started this week with spring cleaning and putting together my spring/summer wardrobe. Keywords for this summer's style are natural, soft and relax. There's a lot of stripes and blues, which is odd since I've always thought those are basically symbolising boredom, especially together... But this year I've kinda realized how they can be used without going too "sailor chic" and how to keep it relax and earthy, the way I like it.

  Seems that I've now found my true summer style. And I love that I now also have a colour scheme so everything will go together. In recent years I've just bought pieces I like without really thinking about the big picture. There's nothing as frustrating as having a lot of clothes but nothing to wear since nothing really goes together. But anyway, I still need to get a couple of dresses, maybe a pair of shorts or a skirt, then my wardrobe is complete. ^^ Can't wait for summer! Hope it will be hot as hell. ♥

IT'S OPEN, IT'S DONE


  Recovering from yesterdays shift. We had an inventory night and it was almost midnight when I got home. Dark circles are real. But! Something more exciting happened last weekend: our Studio Asema has now officially opened it's doors. On Saturday we were open for the public from 12.00 to 17.00 and then in the evening we had "the real" party. ;) The daytime event was lovely but it was pure greatness to celebrate this privately with our friends. Live music, fairy lights, wine and laughter. ♥ Yas, it was nice.

  For some reason I did feel a bit under the weather on Sunday... Fancy that. Needed the day for relaxing anyway so it didn't really matter. Back to this week! This week is only about survival. It's fully booked (except Sunday, yay!) and totally terrifying. But now it's already Wednesday so tonight I'll be halfway there. :D Wish me luck, see you on the other side... or on Friday.

LOADING BATTERIES


  Oh my. Trying my best to restore some energy right now. This has been a crazy week and more craziness coming up, starting tomorrow. Today everyone was preparing for tomorrow's long waited opening day. And I really need to go to bed soon, so I won't be totally dead and useless. Next week again is fully booked. Work, work, work and some more work. But then the next two weeks after that I've planned to spend only with my thesis. Hundred cups of coffee, bed, computer and total isolation. Sounds like a vacation to me, lol.

(P.s. pics in the first pics by Helena Eslon, last ones are Iiro's :3)
