Homemade candles

Last Saturday me, my sister and some friends took a course to make our own candles. It was a lot of fun, it just took a bit longer than I expected.. I thought we would dip them a few times and then they would be ready, but I was wrong.. It took 3,5 hours to make 20 candles, but I'm really proud of them. :D The candlesticks are from IKEA.

Now I'm packing, because tonight we're going for a cruise to Stockholm! :) We just brought our little baby cat to some friends, who are gonna take care of her when we're away. Gonna miss her so much!!!

 Me in the elevator, haha..

Today me and my boyfriend went to IKEA! I haven't been there in quite some time, so we decided to go there to do some shopping for our home and of course to eat meatballs. :) We ended up buying a few things, some that we planned beforehand but also a lot we just suddenly had to have. At IKEA, even though you don't really need anything, you still end up buying a bunch of stuff.. But I really like going there, everything is so cute and cheap. :)

I have a week's vacation in two weeks and we just bought tickets to PARIS! <3 Can't wait to go there, feels like ages since I was there in spring. I love the city and it's so beautiful especially around Christmas, with all the gorgeous Christmas lights and decorations. And it's the perfect place for doing some Christmas shopping! :)

Here's another little masterpiece of mine.. ;) These silver eggs are made of a silver paste and were quite hard to make, but I'm happy with the result.

I've had almost the whole week off work, so I've had time to work on my thesis, go to yoga and dance classes and meet up with my friends. :) I have this 10 x card to Studio High Heels, where they teach great dance lessons. Me and my friend Jeanette are still pretty bad though (or at least I am) and can't really keep up with the amazingly fast teachers.. :D I also bought this gym card to Motivus yesterday, I'm really psyched about going for more dance lessons now. It's so much fun and such a great workout. :)

Have a good Friday night!! xx

Cute leggings

Here's one of the wonderful things I bought from the Versace collection for H&M last Thursday. I think the leggings are really cool and makes any boring outfit a bit more fun. :)

I wasn't feeling my best yesterday, because the night before a friend from work threw a housewarming party. But I went to my sister's place, where she organized a family brunch with our parents and grand parents. I had to go and help her out a bit earlier, because she also went out the night before...

It feels like I've been working a lot the last few weeks, so I'm really happy to have the next 4 days off. I'm not gonna do anything special, just relax!! :D And maybe work on my final thesis...

Good night! <3 <3 <3

Today's catch

Yeaaah, this is what I brought home today!! hihihii :D I went to H&M already a bit before 8 am to have a look at their guest designer Versace's collection, one hour before work. The queue was reeaaally long, but I managed to get in to the store and grab a few things before my work started. :)

I started this year's Christmas season yesterday by drinking my first glass of glögg (mulled wine) and eating the first gingerbread, when we had a cozy glögg night with a friend. I had another glass of this wonderful drink this evening, and I'm sure there will be many more of those before Christmas is over! :)

Versace for H&M

Soon Versace's collection for H&M will be out in stores! There are a bunch of dresses I would love to add to my wardrobe, but they're all quite expensive so we'll see.. The store in Helsinki will open at 8 in the morning, so I think I'll have to go and check it out quickly before work on Thursday. :)

Now I'm having cinnamon buns with milk and watching a movie. <3

Silver remains

In the background there's a painting I made some years ago.. :)

Aaah, soon the weekend is here again! It feels like last weekend was just a few days ago, but I guess I'm wrong.. :) I don't even remember what I've been doing for the last few days, at least working quite much. And yesterday I went to school to do some work on my thesis, but I ended up having lunch with friends for 2,5 hours, so that didn't work out as planned. And later me and two other friends met to have a movie night and dinner, but we never got to see a movie.. Just talked about girlie stuff (haha) and ate enormous amounts of food. We had tacos and then chocolate pie (that I made) with ice cream for dessert.

I made this ring on my silver course this week. I had lots of small silver remains from old silverworks, so I decided to make them into a silver ball and make that into a ring. I don't know what it is with me and rings, I just can't get enough of them!!!!!

Carnival of Venice

It's been a busy weekend! On Friday we had a work dinner and party with the theme Carnival of Venice. Everyone looked so good! I was the only one wearing a costume though, everyone else wore these gorgeous dresses.. But fortunately I had another dress with me, so I could change to a more normal one later. :) We had a lot of fun at the carnival, we even won the price for best dressed. :D Our private party was until midnight, and after some friends and my boyfriend joined me at the club. 

Yesterday a friend came over to visit me and Chanelle. :) Later me and my boyfriend went to the bar A21, where I had the best cocktails I've ever had in Helsinki! I have to go back there again soon. :)

Silver chains


I made these silver earrings this week. They're made of three different silver chains, didn't make the chain myself this time.. They're really much more shiny in real life though!

Now I have to get ready for a work dinner and party. We're gonna eat at Glöd, where Mecca used to be, and then we're going out to Tiger for a masquerade party. The theme is the Carnival of Venice! :) It's gonna be so much fun! 

Have a good weekend! <3

A day at the museum

Me and my boyfriend found a cozy little rug room :)
 What my dad would have wished for all those years I was cycling... :)
A beautiful, but when you look at it closer, pretty scary necklace... :o

A few days ago me and my boyfriend went to the Museums of Cultures, in the Tennis Palace in Helsinki. There we found some interesting things and places. :) It's worth going there and it's free!

Today I had a day off work, so I went to school to write on my thesis... I also went to check out the collection Paola Suhonen, designer of Ivana Helsinki, designed for Seppälä. I have to say that I wasn't crazy about it.. But there were a few cute dresses.
