Prints & patterns

I can't get enough of cool prints! My wardrobe is overflowing with clothes and accessories in different colored prints and patterns. But I don't mind at all. This spring I want to mix different prints together to get really beautiful and refreshing (and maybe a little bit crazy) outfits. :) In the newest Olivia magazine there are lots of cool inspirational outfits, where they haven't been greedy when using different patterns and colors. <3

Now I'm at home and I can't stop listening to the Norwegian band Donkeyboy, they're so good!!

Have a colorful beginning of the week! :D

I was wearing my new Zara top <3, the yellow suede bag I've made, Cheap Monday jeans and all jewellery made by moi. :)

After two days of feeling sick, I'm finally feeling like myself again! :) So yesterday I went to a "fashion show", actually it was more like an introduction of some brands' new collections and then some famous Finnish designers showed their new collections at their stands on the top floor in Kluuvi. If you haven't been there yet (and you are in Helsinki) there are some amazing designers showing their talents in clothes, jewellery and other accessories for yet another hour! I was really excited to meet Minna Hepburn. Her designs are really beautiful, so romantic and dreamy.. And in her collections there are tons of beautiful lace dresses (just what I've been searching for!!) I just have to see if my wallet agrees. :)

I was there with two friends and I convinced them to come with me to Ivana Helsinki's shop in the same shopping mall, Kluuvi. I found two gorgeous dresses, but I couldn't make up my mind. I'm still thinking about them... So I came out of the shop empty-handed, while my friends both bought something.. :D After all the exhausting shopping (hihi), we went for dinner and later to watch their friends' gigs. They were really good, but at that point I was so tired so we went home early. (We did though stop on the way at a karaoke bar to sing, sober... But we never got to sing our song, thank god, because our other friends wanted to leave, before it was our time to sing, but we didn't mind at all actually! :D)

Today I'm not sure what I wanna do. I feel a bit tired now, but maybe later I'll have the energy to do something fun!! :) We'll see.. Have a great weekend!

I'm sick.. And I don't like it at all! There's so many things I should do, but I can't do anything else than just rest... :( I'm so bored, so I started looking at some old pictures. :) Here's a few from Dieppe in north of France, 1,5 years ago. Me and my boyfriend decided to go for a little road trip when we lived in Paris, with our cat that we got one week earlier. :) I had never been in the north of France before. It was so nice, the beaches are totally different from the ones in south of France, but really beautiful. The summer had been really burning hot but this weekend was of course freezing.. 

I was freaking out a bit, because I had to drive! :o The drivers in Paris are CRAZY and we had no insurance on the car.. But nothing happened. :) It's just a 2 hour drive north from Paris, and I strongly recommend the place. But you shouldn't just stay in Dieppe, we went driving in the area around the city and found some amazing places, like a hidden beach and a gorgeous garden with the most amazing flowers. :)

Aah, would love to be there now! :)

Our ride :)
It was quite windy.. :)

Our little baby <3
A hidden place we found that led to...
the amazing beach

My love, who had just cut all his hair.. :(
 In the city
We found this amazing secret garden
A huge anchor :D
Baby Chanelle
Picnic on the beach :)


Now me and Chanelle are gonna continue to be lazy and rest in bed, and dream about warm places far away. :)

My name is Clara and I'm a shoeaholic. Haha... I don't know what's wrong with me!! When I see a gorgeous pair of shoes I just can't help myself. :) And it's bad because I work in a shoe shop, so I see shoes every day!! I found these amazing neon-colored open toe suede pumps at Zara today. (In the pictures they look more yellow than they actually are) I also found a beautiful white t-shirt. I can't wait for it to be summer, so I can wear these beauties. ;) I had a day off work today, so me and my boyfriend went for a bit of shopping, but omg the weather!! It feels like I'm living in Siberia! Snow everywhere.

Now we're watching Bodyguard. Fortunately it's on subtv, the only channel we have since my boyfriend broke the remote. :D Me and my sister used to watch this movie all the time when we were kids. :) It's so good. And it's great that I finally understand the meaning of the film! :D I've seen it so many times, but I was so young that I didn't understand even half of it. Whitney Houston was a really great artist, with so many good songs and an amazing voice. RIP.. <3

Ring bracelet


Now I'm back from a sweaty zumba lesson, hehe...  I'm EXHAUSTED, but it was totally worth it! :) I think I'll have to write a bit on my thesis now, have no motivation though! I would rather just watch some TV or series on the computer. :P

In the pictures you see one of my newest creations. When I started making this exotic silver ring bracelet a few weeks ago, I had no idea what I was getting myself in to. Every little ring had to be sawed from a long silver wire and attached one by one.. And it was really hard to attach the smaller rings, because there were so little space. But now it's ready and pretty cool I think, it's just a bit hard to find occasions to wear it! :)

Have a good evening!

At Tavastia (more precise the toilet...) :)
 In the elevator on our way to the second club, freezing...
Backstage... :D
 Me after a drink... or ten

What a night yesterday was!!! :D Me and my friend at work, Pauliina, went to Tavastia (a club in Helsinki) to watch her friends' gigs. Before we went I had already met up with another friend at Sushi bar, where we had a bottle of red wine and the most delicious sushi rolls!!

The gigs were really good, I had just heard one song before, but I liked them. We had a crazy good night, drank probably 10 drinks each... Hehe. After a while we went to another club, Tiger, without our jackets in the freezing cold. And then 10 minutes later back to Tavastia again, to meet Pauliina's friends backstage.

I woke up this morning with the worst headache. (No wonder..) But I couldn't lie in bed all day, because I was going to my parents place in the afternoon. Now I'm here, having a great time. :)

Good night!! <3

Choker battle

My cat Chanelle got really interested in a silver choker necklace I made last week...
Somehow she managed to get the necklace on.. :D
She walked with it for a while until she sat down really content..
Hah, now it's mine!!

Haha, sometimes animals can be so amusing... :DD

I'm working on my final thesis now, so my head and hands are really tired from all the writing.. But have a good evening and beginning of the week!! <3

Less is more

 Make up store's Mandy lipstick, white transparent shirt and black corset-like top from H&M and two silver rings made by me

Sometimes less is more. You can look great in something simple and beautiful, there doesn't always have to be so much different stuff going on.. I got the idea from a friend at work (thanks Marina :) ) to make these simple, but yet really cool rings. Most of my silver jewellery have been quite complicated to make, so it was nice to do something simple for a change and still have a great end result! (If I may say so myself..) :)

Now I'm gonna start enjoying a long weekend!! <3
