Halloween party

Haha, yesterday we celebrated Halloween! :D I was dressed up as a vampire, who lost her teeth.. :) My friends included the Queen of hearts, a scary fairy with a peeler, a werewolf, a mummy and many more interesting creatures. :) We had a lot of fun, but ended up in a bar where we were the only ones dressed up, so it was a bit awkward.. And I hope no one though that was my normal Saturday night outfit... ;)

It's been a really lazy day today.. I woke up really late and then I went to my friend's place to watch a movie and eat my favorite Chinese dish, szechuan. A while ago I came home to watch Jersey Shore, so I guess it's now time to sleep again! :P

Champagne showers

This weekend has been a great relaxing one. I came to my parents place yesterday and I haven't done anything special since then.. :) I thought of maybe going to the forest to pick some mushrooms if I have time, before I'm heading back to the city. I didn't make it to the forest, but took some mushrooms from the freezer instead. :) Now I'm home, after having a sister & brother dinner at my sister's place! :D

On Friday we had a delicious taco dinner with some friends. They were adorable and made everything ready for me when I came straight after work! We went out to this new place Koitto, where we met some more friends. I really liked the lounge area, really cute and quite romantic. The waiter was really nice and gave us all a glass of sparkling wine for free.  But then he brought a whole bottle to our table! No one of us really wanted to drink anymore at that point. So in the end I was the only one trying to pour down a couple of glasses to be polite. :)

Autumn leaves

I got these silver leaves ready a few days ago. They're made of real leaves covered in silver and are the perfect accessories for this time of year.. :)

Yesterday I bought my Halloween costume! :D It's not scary at all, so I think I'll have to add some scary stuff to it. Maybe some vampire teeth or something.. :)

Python pants

So on Friday we went to the opening of the new shopping mall, Kluuvi, with some friends. It was really beautiful and much better then I expected. The whole area upstairs was turned into a gorgeous lounge type of bar, where lots of people were enjoying cocktails and good music. Later we went to Teatteri to dance!

I wore my new python pants, from Zara. :) My friends made fun of me when I showed them my shiny snake pants. I always buy the weirdest things.. But in the end they all thought they were pretty cool. :)

Yesterday evening I took the bus to Porvoo to have dinner with some friends. My friend, who lives there, made this amazing raclette dinner. The perfect dish for cold autumn nights! :)

Carnival of Light

YEAH, yesterday we went to the amusement park! :D Until the end of this week, there's a Carnival of Light in the evenings in Helsinki. It was really cold yesterday when we went there, but we had lots of fun anyway. And there I also met some friends I haven't seen in quite some time. :)

We saw some strange creatures wandering in the night, like small ghosts dancing around and a headless man. He was so scary!! I couldn't stop laughing when I saw him starting to walk behind two boys, he then accelerated and in the end he was running after them! They were just laughing/screaming and running.. :D I'm glad he didn't start following me, I would probably had peed my pants!

Soon I'm going to get ready for the opening party of the new shopping mall, Kluuvi. :)

Have a good Friday night!!

Prints I love

I finally bought this wonderful skirt I've been looking at for quite some time now. It's from the cool Finnish brand Poola Kataryna and I really really like it!! :)

For dinner I made a mushroom pasta and used the last mushrooms we had at home.. :( Luckily we still have a lot of delicious mushrooms in my parents' freezer! And of course more than enough in the forest.. :) 
Soon a program that I'm secretly addicted to starts, which is called ancient aliens... YES I know it sounds ridiculous, but I can't stop watching it!! :D 
Goodnight!! <3

Surrounded by mushrooms

After a wonderful weekend in the woods, I'm back to everyday life much more happy and relaxed. :) Me and my boyfriend found insane amounts of mushrooms around my parents' place. I've lived most of my life in the forest, but I've never seen this many mushrooms. We were surrounded by them! :D Now we have enough for the whole winter.

When we came back to Helsinki yesterday evening, we went straight to an amazing thanksgiving dinner, which our Canadian friend had prepared. It was delicious and lots of fun! :) But I ate so much that I almost had to roll back home..

Now it's time to go to bed, goodnight! :)

Herring market!

This week went by too fast! Is it really Thursday already? I'm really happy it did though, because tomorrow we're going to my parents' place and to our summer house for the whole weekend! :) Feels like forever since I've been there...

Yesterday the weather was so beautiful, so we went to the Herring market, which is organized every October in the Eteläsatama harbor in Helsinki. I got to wear my new beige leather boots from Bianco, when it wasn't raining for once. :)

NYFW: Ivana Helsinki Spring 2012

New York Fashion Week already took place a few weeks ago, I've just been so busy that I haven't even had time to look at what the amazing mind's of fashion have come up with next. I've only had a look at this Ivana Helsinki's Indian Summer collection, which I really like. It's a great mixture of cool ethnic prints and cute designs. I wouldn't mind owning a few of these dresses.. :)

It's been a fun weekend. On Friday me and my friend went to this bar with free drinks all night.. And yesterday we went out after work to Belge for a couple of drinks with my boyfriend. Now we just finished watching the program we've been waiting for all week, Jersey Shore!! Hahaa. :D
