Confirmation party

Stradivarius shirt, dress from Thailand, Din sko shoes, my made jewelry and Laban!!! :)

This weekend was a lot of fun! On Saturday me and my sister went to my parents place. At 11 pm we decided to go out with our dad to celebrate the ancient fires night at a bar by the sea, not far from home.  Me and my sister had just come out of the sauna, so we went there with messy hair and no make-up on.. Apparently I should go for that look more often, because we had many admirers that couldn't believe what two movie star look-a-likes were doing there!! :D

The next morning we were getting ready to go to church for my brother's confirmation. My brother suggested we perform a song at the party, so we started rehearsing one hour before we had to go. After church when we and all the guests came home to us, me and my sister sang Vår tid-Vårt land with our brother on the guitar, and it went surprisingly well! :)

On Wednesday we went out with some friends and had a crazy good night! :D It was totally unplanned, but those night are usually the best! I had a really tiring day at work, so I met up with a friend after and we were supposed to stay for one or two drinks.. We then met some other friends, got a bottle of vodka on the table and the rest you can imagine.. :)

Stig Dogg, a Finnish rapper performed, and we got a picture with him. :) I didn't realize though that I was like "can you take a picture of us?" to a much more famous Finnish rapper.. Ooops! :D

The Night of the arts is organized in Helsinki tonight. I will go and check it out after work tonight. :)

Food in a basket

Ray-Ban sunglasses, old jeans jacket, Reebok t-shirt, H&M dress, Seppälä bracelet, Din sko shoes, H&M bag

On Sunday a food festival was organized in sunny Helsinki. People all around the city made their own food that they then sold to whoever came to eat. I think it's a great idea, but I was still a bit disappointed. We went to several places, but they were either out of food or the line was too long.. :( So we went to McDonald's instead.. :/ But in the evening I finally found a nice place, they sold potatoes and sausages in a basket from the window! :D Yum!

Flee market findings

I almost look normal today! :D So I got the courage to show a picture of me.. :)

These wonderful earrings I found at a flee market last month. I'm just crazy about jewelry, can't get enough of them. In a few weeks me and my sister are going to sell some old stuff on a flee market in Helsinki. It's so nice, you get rid of old things you don't need and in return you get money (to buy more! :D).

I'm staying at home this Saturday, I'm still feeling a bit tired from the operation.. And it's nice to know I'll be feeling good tomorrow and have plenty of time to eat delicious food all day long! Tomorrow Ravintolapäivä is happening in Helsinki and apparently in other cities in Finland too. The list of places to eat at is really long, but I'll try to find some cool places..

Goodnight! <3

Operations suck

Here's some pictures from the big family party I attended last week. :)

Currently I'm at my parent's house, being taken care of. Yesterday I had an operation for my front tooth that still isn't good, over 5 years after the accident... :( My gum hurts and looks terrible with weird stitches everywhere, but hopefully it will get better soon, because now I look like a guinea pig with snus.. The worst thing is that it hurts so much when I laugh, but sometimes I just can't help it, so please don't tell me anything funny. :)

Garden party!

Top I've made of Christian Lacroix fabric, H&M shorts, Bianco shoes... :)

On Friday we celebrated my 24th birthday. :) We started in my beautiful backyard with some drinks, food and good friends. The weather was perfect! Later we went to a bar close by, where we had reserved the upstairs just for us. We also went to a club, Teatteri, later to dance!! :)

Next day we had to wake up really early, to go to my grandfather's bigsister's 100 years birthday party! :) There we saw many relatives, most of them I hadn't even met before. I wasn't feeling my best, but I had a good time anyway. It's amazing how someone can get so old, I hope I got some of her good genes.. :)

Now I'm getting ready for Rihanna on the beach!! :D The weather is crap, but hopefully it will get better!

This picture is from last year, when me and my boyfriend celebrated my birthday in Venice.. :)

Today I turned 24!! I can't believe I'm already that old, haha.. When I was a kid I thought I would be so grown-up at this age, but I actually still feel like a child sometimes. :D

Tomorrow I'm organizing a birthday party and it's going to be lots of fun! :)

THANKS everyone for congratulating me today!!!! <3 <3 <3

It's raining men

This is what me and my friends looked like before going out on Saturday. :D It was raining heavily, so this nun look wasn't actually a part of my outfit.. :)
It's been raining a lot today as well, but now I can almost see a glimpse of the sun, so I'm going to go for a much needed walk in the park. <3

Shoe love

My newest babies from Bianco :)

The worst thing about working in a shoe shop, is that I have to be around gorgeous shoes all day long. :D I already have a whole bunch of shoes I would like to buy, but I have to try to resist. It's just a bit hard for a shoeaholic not to buy a pair every now and then.. ;)

Have a fun Saturday night! :D

Pretty in Pink

Gina Tricot pants, Din Sko shoes, Gina Tricot shirt, Bianco scarf and Guess bag

After work today, I went to an art exhibition to watch the work of my boyfriend's cousin and two other girls. The paintings and photographs were really interesting and beautiful. Outside I found a cute girl in her pink little house. :) I wore my new cool and slightly crazy maxi pants that I found during the sales at Gina Tricot. :)

I'm now waiting for dinner to be served. :) I know we eat really late!! Hihii

Meeting up with the cousins

On the boat
Kingis gang
A Viking ship...?
Crayfish party! :)

This weekend I had the chance to really get some proper (hihi) relaxation. I saw my cousins at our summer house in Porvoo. It felt a bit like the summers when we were kids, when me and my sister's cousins came from Belgium to live there for the summer. We always had so much fun. Me and "my" cousin Kati loved to dress up and play the funniest games, pretending we were doctors and documenting our patients' heart rates. One couldn't have been feeling so well with 3 beatings per hour... :D Of course we also liked to diss our evil big sisters. :) Sometimes I really miss being a kid.

Now I'm back to reality in Helsinki. <3
