Holy Thursday

The summer got me to whirl and that's why I have spent some silent days here in the blogosphere. I've been enjoying sun bathing outdoors (of course  with some strong sun protection to maintain my pale skins as white as possible) and in additions there has been other more important duties at hand. 

Wave Gotik Treffen is all the time haunting in the mind, but  my mind is still a question mark how to dress this year. I don't stress it so much, but some garments have already lost into the suitcase. Perhaps something quite minimalistic this year or at least I have a strong feeling about it right now. Days run crazily and soon it's time to leave. Exciting.

 This outfit is from Thursday which was a day off and it was a really warm weather. Thus we ended up having a picnic at the park with my beloved. A dress is chiffon short suit which I bought a year ago and it is still my very favorite summer garment. I worn it much over last summer and I have a doubt of my own that I will wear it also this year. Chiffon is perfect material in the summer. It's light and chilly. 
Let's see if I have time to blog before a journey or not, but if not then I will return with festival photos  and news. Hope you all are fine  and I wish you a happy weekend!

First of May

Our May Day was spent quite tightly indoors due to the rainy weather which didn't tempt to leave the house. I walked through the city yesterday with the umbrella, but otherwise we spent the day indoors by watching among other things Moomins and the Winter wonderland and I poured dry sparkling wine down the throat. Usually the city is packed with the people, but now it was as vivid as the graveyard.  On Monday evening we visited the bar and it was nice to sit at the bar over a few beverage and it was much prettier weather.
My simply outfit and student cap. 
Now I start to target my mind to the Wave Gotik Treffen which is soon here! My mind is still open for the outfits, but perhaps I will figure out something. I have not made anything new this year so I will go with the old robes and imagination. Only two weeks and can't believe that. Last WGT just happened!

Past in the frames

What a second hand day I have behind me. I visited a gym in the morning and at the same I popped a flea market which is quite new, huge and close to my dwelling and found a few really beautiful frames. If you don't know yet, I have a kind of addiction to the beautiful photo frames and usually I buy them from the flea markets. I have a plan to change a wallpaper of bedroom and build splashy picture collection onto the wall after that. This week has included decor affairs otherwise for we visited Ikea one day and I found some small needed details which were missing like (surprisingly) a frame for the Moomin poster and a lamp to the living room. Perhaps I will come to those later. 
 I'm not sure if I change those pictures because I find they are really nice in itself. I have been looking for the oval frames for ages, they seems to be rare to find. 
Later today I also visited a goth flea market live which was arranged  today. Unfortunately I didn't find anything and that's perhaps because I'm suffering from the material overdose and sort of I have an inspiration to sew clothes myself right now. I also find that all those famous goth brands are not for me anymore. They are nice, but I prefer more clothes which are not that recognizable. An ordinary black nameless garment is more for me as Lip Service dress.  I like to wear goth brands, but in a minimum scale. 
A look from the other day.

Here comes the pain

Finally the life looks brighter. I managed to have a streptococcus for the first time about a week ago.  I was at work on last Friday as usually, but my throat was very painful already in the morning, but that was nothing if I think how much worse it got during the day. I knew immediately that there is coming something else than just an ordinary flu. When I got to home I nearly fainted due to tiredness. I slept whole evening and night and suffered from a high fever. On Saturday I murmured my bad conditions at home by myself until my boyfriend arrived and brought some food which I wasn't able to eat though.  I was too exhausted to go to see a doctor although I suspected to have that annoying disease and my beloved tried to lure me to go. I was only able to eat an ice cream because the throat was indeed sick. 

And this was not all, I also managed to have some weird eczema which is something new to me and now my torso is filled with red spots which might be there for months according to the doctor. There should not be any connection between those two disease, they just happened to occur at the same time (and yes, I know streptococcus can also cause the eczema, but this is different). I'm really happy that my face is spot-free. It's enough that my tummy has a new polka dot pattern. I don't have much experience (for my delight) about the skin problems, so this is very new, but I know that they can be really harmful. Good thing is that this is innoxious. It's only a cosmetic harm. 

 Today is my last day of sick leave and I already feel fine so I decided to invest in an outfit after wearing a nightgown for many days in a row. It felt so awesome to put some make-up and nice clothes on. And to be honest we paid a visit to Ikea yesterday because I was so fed up with being at home and I felt good. 
Now it's time to break up this relationship between me and Netflix which has become quite close friend to me over the days (what a pity). Tomorrow the work is calling... Trailer park boys entertained me perfectly.

Tuhatvuotinen harharetki

And again it's Sunday and a new week is waiting for us ahead. The day flashed quickly. I started sewing a new dress in the morning and a few hours later it was already done. This is rare, usually I don't get anything ready during one day and now I stitched it without stops. Well one new frock for the summer is indeed welcome. 

Today I was dressed in this lovely chiffon dress which I found in the sale track last autumn. The dress has its perfect shape and I especially like the collar system and neckline. The chiffon is also the material which pleases my eyes a lot. I've always liked translucent materials and they feel so light after heavy winter garment season. 
Otherwise the weekend offered some music again in a form of gigs. On Friday evening I pulled myself together and went to see one really interesting Finnish alternative/indie whatever band named Teksti-tv 666. I've seen them once so the band is an old acquaintance to me, but they still sounded good as they did in the previous time. Hope to see them again. 

Nothing else special. Just an ordinary weekend quite much home bounded, but that doesn't bother me at all. I also fixed my bike because the summer finally gives some signs of existence and I've been very happy about the warm weather!
