You can rely on me, honey You can combine anything you want I'll be around You were right about the stars Each one is a setting sun

Pictures from: Brooklyn Decker (Heli) Tush - February 2007 (2-2007) Germany

Little saturday night inspiration for everyone! I don´t know what is it with me and mask but they seem to look so stunning. The combination of big hair, the dramatic clothes and masks really make this editorial work. Furthermore I really like that third picture with the white frilled shirt and those black leggings. ( my current obsession)

By the way against my all habits I really like the Beyonce´s Single Ladies music video. Specially the Saturday Night Lives version of it is pretty funny. ( Beyonce feat cool back-up dancers like Justin Timberlake :D) Check the whole version from here:

Have a great weekend everyone!

Laid back, we'll give you laid back

So this is the weather: snowy,very cold winter! In stead of embrasing it I am day dreaming of spring and summer!

For example today I bought these gorgeous jeans-shorts for summer!

and these new darling to complete my shoe collection:pair of Barbara Bui! There was a -70 % sale in my favourite store in Helsinki Nina´s. I am so happy about these shoes cause I only paid 120 euros of them ( originial price 380!) So I can in good conscience say that these really were an great investment. I am totally in love with them.
Now my Mulberry Bayswater bag (Bruno) has a new friend Barbara! Now I gotta go restaurant evening with a mate!
Have a great evening and thank you for all the lovely comments<3
Iam very very very grateful!

Mais entre eux c'etait toujours complicite

I just absolutely love the french vogue and its inspirational workers. This is the way I would love to dress everyday. Unfortunately high heels and slush/iced sidewalks aren´t the best combination. Anyways girl can always dream. Currently Iam dreaming of my very own Louboutinis, fringed boots and of some cool comfy ballerinas. Well now I really have to get back to my history book. I´ve got until tomorrow morning to master Finlands history from the past four centuries. And I can tell you life & politics haven´t been easy for us!! If you don´t believe me go and google Finlands history. No wonder people think that we are a bit dark and twisted :D

They only want you when you're seventeen When you're twenty-one You're no fun

Iam sure you all recognised the model bestfriends Gemma Ward and Lily Donaldson. I really like of them both especially Lily. Her newest photoshoot is just incredibly exquisite. She absolutely looks angelic. Furthermore I like how she dresses in her spare time! Its simple with a twist. Exactly what I like.
You can checkt photos from V magazines photoshoot from Tjejsajtens blog.

Right now I am listening to: Ottoman- Vampire Weekend
My ultimate favourite film that I watch over and over again ( like today): Almost Famous! I really should have lived in 70´s!

Do you want to go to the seaside? I'm not trying to say that everybody wants to go I fell in love at the seaside

I got a nice challenge from Life-Style Hanna.
Thank you very much!
You should definitely check her blog if haven´t heard of it!

1. go to the 4th folder in your computer where you store your pictures.

2. pick the 4th picture in that folder.
3. explain the picture.
4. tag 4 people to do the same!

This is a picture from New Zealand. You can almost see me and my mates white water rafting. Iam the first person in the left side of the boat ( at least you can see my yellow helmet :D).
This was one of the coolest thing I´ve done in my life among Bungy jumping,sky diving and black water rafting. I am or I at least were a big adventure freak!
Actually in this waterfall this boat flipped and I actually me and other two girls fell out of the boat! Pretty scary,huh? Well actually its pretty dangerous cause there are lot of rock under the water and you can get succed into the stream... Anyways I did this rafting again after a couple of months with my other friend. That river was little bit calmer and we got to jump out of the boat and float in the stream! Good times:)

Now I would like to challenge the following wonderful blogs: LeFlassh, The Sunset Palette, Fashion Chalet and This Organized Chaos

Do you never wonder? No, No no no you girls never know,How you make a boy feel

I "Minnie Mouse" seem to be very confused

Me and the gorgeous Snow White

Pocahontas and Minnie Mouse

Me, Cleopatra ( b-day girl),the Bull and Snow White

In these last pictures me,snow white,pirate and the bull!

Here are just few photos from the last saturdays costume party! It was my friends 20th birthday party part deux. You may think that there was some Disney theme and that there weren´t no boys. You got it wrong. But like you can guess only girls liked to "pose" to the camera. We had heaps of fun like you can see. The day after I rested and watched three movies: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Nick & Norahs Infinite playlist and Slumdog Millionaire.Iwas pretty disappointed with the first film ( too commercial to my taste). But the last mentioned movies were awesome! If you liked Superbad and Juno Iam sure you will find Nick & Norahs Infinite playlist entertaining. It was filled with great music ( Band Of Horses,Shout Out Louds,Vampire Weekend,The Submarines and so on) and funny characters.
Slumdog Millionaire was deffinitely the best movie of them all. Its about a Mumbai teen who grew up in the slums, becomes a contestant on the Indian version of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" He is arrested under suspicion of cheating, and while being interrogated, events from his life history are shown which explain why he knows the answers. Its has been nominated for couple of Oscars and I really liked the actor Dev Patel ( Anwar from the Skins).

Now the past couple of days I´ve been studying (history,religion,math,english and social studies) cause my exam week just started.Furthermore just in a few short weeks my matriculation exams starts ( ylioppilaskokeet). So wish me good luck because I am truly going to need it!

ten days of perfect tunes the colors red and blue

Trente ans versus dix-sept ans

Some sunday inspiration for everyone. I just absolutely adore Paris Vogues photoshoots and this is a great example of the great inspirational styling that french Vogue achieves to accomplish every single time. Models in the photoshoot are Eva Herzigova (30 ans) & Anna Selezneva (17ans). I like in this photoshoot that the older women Eva actually looks dazziling in this shoot and she is the one who captures your attention. The glamour just shines through her. Ofcourse Anna look amazing too. She makes me wanna dress more youthfully and embrace the age that I am ( Iam ninteen years old). Cause when you are young one can really try on different things. Almost everything looks great on when you just feel comfortable in it. It just an state of mind.
Have a great sunday. I am currently in a roll of watching great movies and loading my batteries after yesterdays costume party. I was an mouse! I´ll show the pictures later if you wanna see?

Sew your fortunes on a string And hold them up to light

Clemence Poesy, indulging the layeredlook.

Why not use scarfs and wool-headbands for a change!

I think that in wintertime its essential to utilise layeredlook. Otherwise outfits in cold winter tend to be boring. Leggings,scarfs,jumpers,good jackets, gloves, hats and various accessories are significant. I tend to keep my hair and make-up natural (like always) and with different scarfs and hats to make an outfit special. For the rest of the winter I will definitely incorporate before shown pictures vibes. What are your winter essentials?
