The best gifts are invisible

It's a time to introduce the gifts which I got this year. 

I bought myself over a week ago while visiting Helsinki MAC's lipstick (and liner) which is definitely awesome. (The color is matte Russian red). Usually I favor only the cheap market products but I have wanted MAC makeup since they came Finland for sale so I decided to give this one for me as a Christmas present. This second color (Longwear Endless drama) I got from my mom. Deep purple really beautiful shade ( Check out the picture below).




More cosmetics! I love Bodyshop's Vanilla series so it's always a safe choice. I have used their Vanilla  perfume for years. It's absolutely my favourite scent.

Brushes from MAC.
Scents

Sofi's book.
My secret soul brother Nemi. (Thank you Antti!)

Moomin products which I collect
Playstation 3. Don't know why this appeared from the paper because I only play the computer games nowadays and actually I try to be without playing anything 'cause they are too addictive and only steal my life. My dad already promised to buy this from me if I don't need it. But if you have some good game suggestions please don't hesitate propose!!!



In addition I got a hardboard, tripod, towels, socks, chocolate and a bottle of red wine. Material overdose. Should I keep a purchase strike in January? (I think it's impossible the sales are already waiting...  )

Would you like to taste some wine?


Some time ago I found a wine rack while visiting the flea market. My current dwelling is such a boring because I don't have my own furnitures so I try to make it homey by using the different small interior decorating elements. Striped curtains, black fluffy carpets, my jewelry collection and Mr. Smith hanging on the wall are acting the leading role in my present decoration. (and if you are wondering the dusty balls and the spider webs on the corners of the roof they are the part of it as well!) This wine rack was a perfect find; now I get my sweet bottles on it and it includes also candle places. I also bought a new frame. I can't have too many pictures at home and I simply love this kind of frames! I'm dreaming to decorate my next home the style of  the 1800s.

Graduation



 It seems that the end of the world didn't happen (what a surprise; stupid people who analyze the things wrong way) but I reached the end of the road today when I stepped to receive the certificate. A dream really came true; I'm officially a fashion designer. Over four years ago I packed my suitcase and decided to move to Eastern Finland to the city which was totally unknown for me. My hometown is situated far away in between Turku and Tampere so the change was a big but rewarding. These years passed quickly but they were probably the best of my life so far. I have got a plenty of experiences and met lovely people during these years. Somehow I'm feeling emptiness now when everything is over and there isn't school works to do on the list anymore but of course the feeling is happy as well. The future is a huge question mark. I don't have any plans  but there is a trust that everything become clearer in the coming months. I just want to enjoy the freedom and to live day by day. At least I have now the time to do the things which I love; sewing, drawing, photographing, reading and I have thought to start painting too (and continue studying german language). There is also that small heart thing creating the light for my life now which makes me feel more happy than I can describe. I hope I have more to tell you about that thing later.

Tomorrow the train runs again; oh yeah I managed to spend five days in Savonlinna and here I go again. Now more sparkling wine and packing of suitcase.

Inside my heart

Dress: From London  /  Tights: From London   /  Shoes: K-kenkä  /   Necklace: Cybershop  / Ring: GT


My old winter boots said good bye and it was time to purchase the new ones. The criterias were the good bottoms because I have too many shoes with the plane bottoms and it's impossible to walk with them in the winter of Finland. At first I was meant to buy the shoes without heels but all those alternatives were so grandma-like that I decided to kick that idea. These Vagabond's shoes melted my heart and in spite of the high price I decided to give the new home for them. At least they are real leather so hopefully they will last more than one winter.

The funeral of sunset

Shirt: Restyle   /   Trousers: Diy
 Trousers or they are nearly a leggins which I made during the last week.


In between times it feels that the most people are such a thrilled about Christmas. Well I have been also before but just this christmas feels that could skip over it. My first intention was to walk along the streets of Times Square in Christmas time until the reality ruined the pretty thoughts of escapist. Well at least here is coming my graduation only a couple days before the consumption of celebration which is decidedly a happy thing. I have considered taking the new ink spots on my skin as a present  but taking of them moves to the side of the next year. I have had the new tattoo ideas on my mind a long time but I want to consider these things profoundly before implementing them. A little insinuation there's coming a dead beauty with the gentle touch.

Shine on me

Really simple but also comfy home uniform :

Shirt: Seppälä / Necklace: Cybershop

Two days vanished again away from my eyes just when I was thinking to have time for blogging. Tomorrow the train runs toward Tampere once again but before it I tell you how am I spent this weekend here at my parents' place:

I started reading Twilight novels which I have in both in english and in finnish - In their own genre the serie is pretty well made and I can even find some scenes where is possible identify with it. I know some people can't stand Meyer at all, but I don't take this glitter vampire story thing dead seriously. There is no need to compare it with Dracula.Those pieces are easy to read which enable that I can read them being tired when it's difficult to focus the mind on anything.

 
I have also spent time with my youngest brother by playing the board games which I love! Monopoly is one of my favourite and I can tell you that we took many tour with it


I also made some sketches. I love that I have now time to do what ever I want!  No need to suffer the bad conscience.

In addition I entertained myself by reading the quotes of Oscar Wilde. Here is a few of them:

"        We are all in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars. "
"    Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. "
"       A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world."


And of course I have played a lot of records.......

Soft breath

 After spending a few days in Tampere I ended up making an extempore trip to my friend's place where I spent the last night before coming to my parents' place. I have managed to travel across Finland completely but now should stay here at least a day and even another.

Today we visited rounding in vicinity and I captured  pictures from the frozen scenery at the same :

A gothic-inspired church in Kokemäki.

The outfit consisted of a brilliant red coat which is self made. I try to add red to my wardrobe after the break. Red color suits well for the darkness of winter and the color is also compatible with my skin tone. This coat I made already in the last winter but I haven't kept it before this. The hem is super huge if wearing it with a bell skirt.

The Street of dreams

We had the small christmas party some days ago. I dressed up a long striped skirt which I call in a friendly way Burton's dress. I bought this lovely piece of clothing from London two years ago. I have worn this only once or twice 'cause I'm always such a scared to spill something on it (in my case probably red wine). Somehow the form of hem was a bit weird to wear in itself so I got the idea to put the petticoat with it. The self made velvet corset is one of my dearest corset at the moment.
Corset: Diy / Skirt: From London  / Underskirt: Diy  /  Earrings: Seppälä


I'm sitting on the train at this minute and hoping to reach the destination in three hours. My suitcase is over full, maybe I overreacted a bit ;)
