Midnight swim

This is from last Saturday's Iltalehti, hehe...

One of the best things about summer nights is that you can go skinny dipping in the middle of the night! :D Last week I had a great time with my boyfriend, his brother and a friend by the sea. A guitar is actually all you need in order to have a great evening, besides good company of course. The weather was still really warm around midnight, so we decided to go for a dip in the sea. I had my bikini on, but the guys did it the way you should do it, naked.. :D

I'm usually pretty good at making cakes, even though I say it myself, but today I just don't seem to get anything right! The cream I whipped a while ago turned out to be some kind of mix between butter and water... Wtf? And my eggs didn't want to get whipped at all! Arghh, frustrating... >:(

Maybe it has to do with that I've had a lot on my mind the last few days. I've been thinking a lot about what happened in Norway and it's just so terrible that words can't describe. It's scary how someone can have so much hatred against the world that they turn completely mad and commit insane, evil crimes against innocent young people...

I think I'll give up on the cake now and buy one tomorrow...

Me and my bike so happy together! :) H&M blouse, Gina Tricot shorts, Nine West heels & Guess bag

Despite some lazy moments earlier, me and my friend Alexandra decided to go out yesterday. :) We live really close, but we haven't been out together in a long time. We went to Kaivohuone, which is my absolute favorite amongst the bars in Helsinki. I haven't been there this summer yet, and I have to say that it wasn't as good as it used to be.. But I think I have to give it another shot..

My lovely boyfriend fixed my bike, which had been broken for several days, when I was at work. In the summer I can't live without it, so now I'm happy again!! :D

At the wedding

 I wore my Lanvin pour H&M dress & Guess bag

On Saturday me and my boyfriend went to a French-Finnish wedding. :) We had a great time at the reception, which was at a mansion. We ate and drank a lot of nice food and wine, and danced our asses off to a great band. Later we went out to one of my favorite clubs in Helsinki, Kappeli.

Now I'm waiting for my darling to come home so we can try my home made tortellinis. :) He's usually the one making dinner, because it takes forever for me to plan and prepare something, but today I just got so inspired by Jamie Oliver that I had to try to make the tortellinis, no matter how long it would take.. :)

Paris Haute Couture FW 2011/12: Day 2

Some of my favorite looks from the second day of the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week 2011/12. :)

Stephane Rolland
This whole collection is like a wonderful art show, full of gorgeously sculptured and imaginative pieces of art.

Alexandre Vauthier
This adorable red dress is perfect for those who like to be the center of attention.. :)

 Basil Soda
I'm in LOVE with this collection!!! The beautiful colors combined with the most wonderful details and fabrics, makes these dresses perfect!

This isn't my favorite collection, but it is clean and very Chanel.

Time out of the city

Pihlajasaari (an island in Helsinki) last week

The last two days have been really relaxing and nice. I went to my parents place and to our summer house for some very needed time out of the city. :)

Now I'm in a hurry, because I have to get ready for a wedding!!

Haute Couture FW 2011/12: Day 1

On Monday last week the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Shows started. Here's my favorites from the first day.. :)

Have a good day!

 Anne Valery Hash
I like the siplicity and beautiful flow of the garments.
The collection is really beautiful and looks like what a haute couture collection should look like, creative and difficult to make. And the shoes are crazy! :D

Christian Dior
I love this dress from Dior, but otherwise the whole collection is a dissapointment. The colors and the patterns of the dresses are all over the place and the hats are the strangest thing ever... 

 Georges Hobeika
The collection consists of gorgeous dresses in beautiful colors, like dresses straight from a fairy tale. I really like them! <3

Iris Van Herpen
Her creations look amazing and unreal!!

My sis's birthday

The birthday girl! :)
 I was wearing my new lovely green skirt. :)

On Saturday we celebrated my sister's birthday. She threw a party in her apartment, where we in the end stayed all night. We were too tired to join some of the people who went out, and I had already been there for eight hours at that point.. At the party we ate so much good food and drank lots of wine. :) Her friends gave her many nice presents and the most wonderful flower bouquets..

I wore this fantastic long skirt I found in H&M last week. :)

Tölölahti Bay

It feels like I haven't had time to do much other then work for the last two weeks, but now I have the whole weekend off and time to finally do something else too. :) It's my sister's birthday tomorrow, so in the evening I will go to the party she's throwing. And before I can finally be really lazy and just lay in the sun all day. :D 

Just by my house, there's this cute bay where you can go for cozy walks or rent a boat if you want. At daytime it's a perfect place for sunbathing and at night it offers a great ambiance with all the beautiful lights from the buildings around the bay. I have been there a lot the last days. It feels good to be surrounded by nature once in a while, when you live in a city. :)

Goodnight! :)

Lion king

I wouldn't mind being a lion right now, rest in the grass in a quiet and sunny place...

I've been working now for 9 days in a row, and it will continue like this until Friday. I'm soo tired, but this weekend I'm not working, so soon I can finally rest!! And as if one job wouldn't be enough, I work at two different ones at the moment. But I'm still alive and surprisingly cheery. :)

I LOVE this beautiful picture! <3

Colors I love

The weather has been amazing! Yesterday we were on the beach the whole afternoon. Later we went out for some drinks. I love it when the nights are this warm. <3

I wore a dress I bought in Copenhagen some time ago and my nice new shoes from Stockholm. I found this gorgeous necklace on a flee market the other day. I absolutely love it, the colors are great! :)

Welcome to the neighborhood! :)

Yesterday me and my boyfriend helped our friends to move. I wasn't actually that big of a help carrying things, I was mostly there for moral support, haha. Our friends moved from an apartment close to us into another place even closer, just one block away. :) 

I bought this cute, large (and see-through) t-shirt from H&M yesterday. I decided that I deserved it after a long day at work. :)
