my morning routine | UPDATE



4:00AM - My alarm goes on. I don't get out of bed, I hit the snooze button. Oh my, what have I become? Snooze button! Seriously. Me.

4:15AM - My alarm goes on for the second time. I crab my phone from the charger and start scrolling through my social medias. Nothing wakes you up better than your iPhone's screen light at the mornings right? It hurts.

4:30AM - I can finally get myself out of the bed. This is the moment when I spend 5 minutes from my mornings just to find my pants.

4:35AM - Coffeemaker is turned on, I've found myself from our bathroom brushing my teeth. 

4:37AM - I'm starting to do something to my face. Btw, would you be interested about my daily makeup routine? I could make a post of it. 

4:45AM - I'm pouring the coffee to my beloved moomin mug and because I won't be using any milk, I leave it to cool down for a while.


4:46AM - This is the moment when I do something to my hair. Basically just brush it and do some straightening to control my curls. 

4:50AM - I'm happily in our kitchen drinking my morning coffee. Going through some blogs and vlogs & reading some news. 

5:00AM - I'll wake my fiancé up. Yelling his name like 5 to 10 times so he would wake up, sometimes it even takes 15 times. 

5:10AM - I'm starting to prepare to leaving our apartment.

5:16AM - I'm taking the same lift to downstairs with our neighbour, usually. 

5:22AM - I'm ending up to the same bus stop with that same neighbour. 

5:25AM - I'm on the bus going to work.

LOVE ME DO - wedding fair

We went to a wedding fair today with my lovely maid of honor and I'm going to full this post with all the inspirational things we saw today. Prepare lovelies, this will definitely be a long one.
"Love me do - different wedding exhibition" was held over at Kaapelitehdas, Helsinki and it was so full of people.
There was examples from a lots of different table settings, dresses and we even got to taste some cakes. We left pretty quick after the fashion show and pictures are taken with my iPhone so quality isn't that great in those last pictures.

// Mentiin häämessuille ihanan kaasoni kanssa tänään ja aion tämän postauksen siis täyttää kaikilla inspiroivilla juttusilla mitä siellä tänään nähtiin. Valmistautukaa ihanaiset, tästä tulee törkeän pitkä postaus.
"Love me do - erilainen häätapahtuma" pidettiin siis Kaapelitehtaalla Helsingissä ja siellä oli niin paljon porukkaa. 
Siellä oli koottu esimerkkejä erilaisista kattauksista, mekoista ja päästiin jopa maistelemaan kakkujakin. Lähdettiin aika pian muotinäytöksen jälkeen ja kuvat onkin otettu iPhonella joten niissäkin laatu saattaa hieman heittää häränpyllyä, varsinkin viimeisissä kuvissa. 



This table setting was pretty close to our theme in our becoming wedding and I pretty much fell in love with it. There was almost 20 different settings and I only took pictures of my favourite ones and this tuned out to be the number one. I love it because it's so minimalistic and simple. Colouring is also really pretty and simple, not filled with useless pieces of decorations. Lovely and simple. 

// Tämä kattaus on aika lähellä meidän häiden teemaa ja mä aikalailla rakastuin tähän. Siellähän oli melkein kaksikymmentä erilaista kattausta, joten kuvailin vain lempparini ja tämä pääsi sitten ykköseksi. Tykkään tästä koska se on niin yksinkertainen ja simppeli, omalla tavallaan todella puhdas kattaus. Värit on myös todella kauniita, eikä tätä myöskään ole täytetty turhalla koristehärpäkkeellä. Ihana ja simppeli.




If I had time to change our theme in our wedding, I definitely would choose this. Those balloons were super cute and I think we will see these in the future. Some inspiration gained out of this. These look so lovely. It's completely different than the first one and I don't know why I love this so much. 

// Jos mulla olisi aikaa vaihtaa meidän häiden teemaa, tämä olisi todellakin se. Nuo pallot oli aivan uskomattoman suloisia ja uskon että niitä tullaan eri värein meidänkin häissä bongailemaan. Sainpahan hieman inspistä mukaan tältä reissulta. Nämä on niin ihania. Täysin erilainen edelliseen verrattuna ja en oikeasti osaa sanoa miten tästä niin kovin inspiroiduin ja siihen ihastuin.


You've probably noticed already how much I love pretty and simple things and this was also one that stole my heart. I was just wondering that is this that kind of a setting where you'll have waiters to bring food to the table for you? We're having a buffet, so that won't suit for us. Of course there could add some plates, but then that pretty print on the tablets would be unseen. 

// Olettekin todennäköisesti jo huomanneet kuinka mä rakastan kauniita ja yksinkertaisia asioita, joten tämäkin kattaus vei mun sydämeni. Mä vaan sitä jäin pohdiskelemaan, että onko tämä kattaus niihin pippaloihin joissa on tarjoilijat tuomassa ruuan pöytään? Meillähän tulee olemaan buffetti, joten tämä kattaus ei meille sopisi. Totta kai tuohon voisi lautasetkin laittaa, mutta sitten tuo kaunis kuvio tableteissa jäisi piiloon.


This setting was also really pretty and I put a notice for those lovely Balmuir towels. Such a lovely idea use small cotton towel as a serviette. 

// Tämä kattaus oli myös omalla tavallaan hyvin kaunis ja kiinnitin huomiota Balmuirin pikku"pyyhkeeseen". Tosi ihana idea käyttää pientä puuvillaista pyyhettä serviettinä. 


This was so Great Gatsby themed setting, I wouldn't go for pink tho. I would've used silver and rose gold if I'm honest but this was really cute setting by itself. 

// Tämä oli niin Great Gatsby tyylinen kattaus, vaikka en itse olisi välttämättä pinkkiä väriksi tässä valinnut. Olisin käyttänyt hopeata ja ruusukultaa rehellisesti sanottuna, mutta muuten tämä oli ihan suloinen itsessään. 


With this one I liked the most of that decoration in the middle, makes a good change for those typical candles in the middle, let's use lights instead. 

// Tässä tykkäsin eniten tuosta koristeesta pöydän keskellä. Hyvä vaihtoehto tavallisesti käytettäville kynttilöille, käytetään valoja niiden sijasta.



I haven't decided what type of a bouquet I'd like to have for me to throw, but I'm going with natural flowers. I just had to take few pictures of these jewellery bouquets, they looked so pretty. Not for me, but good alternative choice for ones who want's to take their bouquets to the next level.
I just highly recommend not to throw this one, it might get ugly when it flies to one's face accidentally. 

// En ole vielä päättänyt minkälaisen kukkakimpun itselleni heitettäväksi haluan, mutta ajattelin mennä ihan luonnollisella kimpulla kuitenkin. Mun piti vain napsia näistä muutama kuva kun ne olivat niin kovin nättejä. Ei ihan se mun juttu, mutta tämä on hyvä vaihtoehtoinen valinta niille jotka haluaa viedä hääkimppunsa uudelle tasolle. 
Mä vaan suuresti suosittelen ettei tätä heittäisi, koska se saattaa äityä aika rumaksi jos se vaikka vahingossa lentää seuraavan morsianehdokkaan naamaan. 





The place was filled with these lovely boutiques and if I would have had any money there was so many cute little things I wanted to take home with me. Okay, let's be honest - I wanted to buy all of these. 

// Paikka oli täynnä kaikkia ihania pikku putiikkeja ja jos mulla olis ollut yhtään rahaa, olisin ostanut niin monta söpöä pientä juttua kotiin. Okei, ollaanpas nyt rehellisiä - olisin ostanut ne kaikki.




This was definitely the best part - the cake tasting. I don't even need to explain or do I?

// Tämä oli ehdottomasti se paras osuus - kakkumaistelu. Mun ei tarvitse edes selittää miksi, vai tarvitseeko?

wedding planning crisis so far



- our venue is freaking hard to find
- there will be seats for exactly 80 people during the wedding ceremony and yes, children must sit on your lap, so if your name is not in the list - you won't sit during the ceremony
- if someone will bring unexpected plus one, the plus one won't find a seat either
- but if there still will be unexpected plus ones, there's still plenty of seats on the other room, they just don't fit in the room where the ceremony is held
- but having a ceremony and the actual party in the same room is impossible
- otherwise there's plenty of room to run like a free animal who's ran out of the zoo
- we still don't have anyone who plays violin

Planning a wedding is so fun and I do not stress at all.

true love's kiss | LUSH HAUL


I've purchased something lovely for my dry winter skin from LUSH the other day and now they've finally arrived. As you know, I'm always too busy (read: lazy) to go to actual store in the middle of Helsinki to get some Lush goodies so I order them online. 
It's actually more fascinating to wait the package to arrive than go and pick something from the actual store. 

// Ostin tälle mun talven kuivattamalle iholle muutaman ihanan jutun Lushilta muutama päivä sitten ja nyt ne ovat vihdoin täällä. Kuten jo tiedättekin että olen aina todella kiireinen (lue: laiska), enkä muka ehdi mennä duunipaikan naapuriin keskelle Helsinkiä katselemaan näitä ihanuuksia suoraan kaupasta, joten tilaan nämä netistä.
On oikeastaan paljon kiehtovampaa odottaa pakettia kuin saapua kauppakassien kanssa kotiin.


PRINCE CHARMING - shower cream

At first sight this was just too cute to leave to a Lush. I've never heard of this before and I do not have a first hand experience about this, so I'm really excited to try this out the next time I'm going to shower. 
Oh, imagine all those lovely bath bombs. Great, now I want an apartment with a  bath tub. Honey? 
This shower cream just smells amazing, just like a bubble gum. 

// Ensisilmäyksellä tämä oli vain liian söpö jättääkseni sitä Lushille. En ole koskaan aiemmin tästä kuullut eikä mulla ole mitään omakohtaista kokemusta tästä, joten olen erittäin innoissani jahka pääsen tätä seuraavan kerran suihkuun mennessäni kokeilemaan.
Oi, kuvittele ne kaikki kylpypommit. Hienoa, nyt haluan asunnon jossa on kylpyamme. Rakas?
Tämä suihkugeeli vaan tuoksuu ihan törkeen hyvälle, vähän kuin purkalle.


DREAM CREAM - hand and body lotion

I'm obsessed with body lotions. God knows why, I don't. This Dream Cream smells almost like the Skindrink facial lotion, I guess that if it's not the same lotion theres only a small difference. Smells amazing tho. 
I actually tried this already and yea, it basically works like any other body lotion. Loving it.

// Mulla on kummallinen pakkomielle vartalovoiteisiin. Luoja tietää miksi, minä en. Tämä Dream Cream tuoksuu melkein ihan samalta kuin Skindrink - niminen naamavoide, mutta jos se ei sitä samaa ole, niin siinä on vain hiuksen hieno ero. Tuoksuu ihanalta tosin. 
Kokeilinkin tätä jo ja jep, toimii aivan kuten mikä tahansa muukin vartalovoide. Ihana.


THE KISS - lip scrub

I've never tried lip scrub in my life before and I have to ask that if they all tasted this good, why on Earth I haven't tried these before?
This actually tastes like that UFO - alcohol drink (or is that just a Finnish thing?) and if you haven't tasted the alcohol, there's also UFO candies. 
They're basically strawberry and salty liquorice combined, tastes so good. 

// En ole eläissäni kokeillut huulien kuorintavoidetta ja mun on aivan pakko kysyä, että jos ne kaikki maistuu näin hyvältä, miksi en ole koskaan aikaisemmin näitä lähtenyt kokeilemaan?
Tämä maistuu ihan UFO karkeille, tai sille alkoholijuomalle. Naminami.

I'm just ready to take my passport and go.


You know the moment when you want to head straight to the airport and buy a one-way ticket to anywhere. Basically at this point where I am at the moment, Sweden would be good enough. 
I'm such a wanderlust. I want to travel. My travel needs haven't been fulfilled yet. I would even enjoy a weekend getaway here in Finland, explore the new city. Take some lovely pictures. 
This summer, I'm pretty sure we are not able to travel anywhere. I mean, well. I'm going to go to Stockholm with Maija to watch Coldplay, but I still don't count going to Sweden as actually leaving the country. It's too close.
I've been scrolling through my photos from Spain and Berlin and I'm just ready to take my passport and go. Do you ever get this feeling? 
I wish it was that simple. My vacation won't be until the summer and my money is all going to our wedding, so no travel plans for this summer then huh? 
We'll see what I'm going to figure out. Hopefully something. Winning in a lottery. Or something.

"I'm sorry that it took so long, I couldn't find my pants."


You know when there's moments where you could go back and change some things you've had said. No, this won't be any of those posts, this is just a story of me having an awkward conversation with DHL guy. 
My lovely Ted Baker package arrived last Monday (more about that later). 
Deliveryman ringed our doorbell at the morning, I woke up to it. He rang the bell once again and I was so tired that I believed that it wasn't our doorbell. 
On the 3rd time I actually got up and went to see if it was our doorbell. It was, I saw it through peephole. I saw that green packaging and immediately realised that it was mine. 
He rang the doorbell for the 4th time while I was desperately trying to find my pants. It took a bit longer than I expected and I could hear when our elevator started to move. 
When I found my pants he was still there, saying "good morning" with that amused look on his face. 
Then it happened. 
"I'm sorry that it took so long, I couldn't find my pants." 
Why would he need to know that? I don't know but there comes a times when you have a desperate need to explain why you couldn't come and open a door for someone at the first bell ring. 
But yay, after that sort of a embarrassing moment, my new package arrived and I can't wait to share with you what's inside of it. 
Not pants tho. 
Gosh, I'm so embarrassing.

5 reasons I love Mondays



1. Mondays are my time. Fiancé is at work and I can get my Mondays all by myself. 
2. I can sleep as long as I want.
3. At Mondays I don't have to hurry anywhere. 
4. I can drink my coffee as long as I can, even let it cool down - and the best part, I can pour myself another cup. 
5. I have time to put some make up on & do my hair. If I want to, but I don't have to.

we are the champions



Today has been such a cold day and by cold I mean it has been freezing out there. -24°C degrees, that's enough.
Or not, It could get colder.
There's absolutely one thing that will warm up finns at the moment and it's that Finland won gold at ice hockey World Junior Championships yesterday.
It warms us up that much that we can go swimming naked at the middle of the Helsinki to a fountain. Everyone got their styles to celebrate this happy event.
I settled to stay in today instead of going to celebrate outside because, yea, IT'S FREAKING FREEZING OUT THERE. Hahah, makes me think of the beaches with white sand and blue water.
Reason I'm bringing up this hockey theme around here is because I really do enjoy watching it, it's like the most Finnish thing to do, but it doesn't matter. And it's probably the main reason why these 1,5 weeks out here has been such a quiet ones. Hah.
Do you follow hockey?

my beauty wish list


I'm such a huge fan of making wish lists. I really am. Filled with stuff I can't afford. Best part of this is, that I'm going to save some money and this time - really get all of these. I literally fell in love  with all of this while I was searching such a lovely things from feelunique.com
Let's get to the things I picked! 




This one I picked out because I need a small beauty bag kind of a thing to take my beauty essentials to go. You know, in your hand bag. Without everything falling apart while you're trying to find the right product. 


Okay, first things first. Who wouldn't need this one? It has such a lovely shades in it and I got almost all the rest of the palettes in my collection, so I'm pretty sure this is a keeper. Need that.


This one I picked out pretty much from the same reasons I picked that Smoky palette. And if you haven't noticed yet, I'm pretty obsessed with eyeshadows. 


I'm just so in love with this shade. I don't know if the internet has effected me or something but I truly need to have this one. I can imagine myself wearing this to a night out with friends or on a date with my fiancé. Oh you can't go wrong with this one. 


To be honest, this one I picked out because it has been a while since I used the last bits of the one I got in the UD Naked Run palette. Desperately needing a new one. Or am I? I am.

oh, it's 2016.



Happy New Year lovelies! Seems like it's time to share my resolutions for this year but I don't have any. Not a single resolution. Or actually I promised myself to brush my hair more often if that does count, otherwise, I got nothing. 
I'm so full of promises what one can't keep anyways, so why would I make any? 
Haha, at least I know I can't keep my promises. 
How was your last day of 2015? I had a lovely time watching fireworks behind our kitchen window and having a HIMYM-marathon with my lovely fiancé. 
My nose is something like after WW2, but I don't have any fever anymore so I'm going to be back to work tomorrow. 
I also ordered something very nice and I can't wait to show it to you when it arrives. 
There's also a small [read: huge, at least for me],  project I'm currently working with and when my voice is back, I can't wait to finish it and share it with you when it's done. 
So many cool things planned for 2016. 

// Hyvää uutta vuotta ihanat! Näyttää vähän siltä, että olisi aika jakaa näitä uudenvuoden lupauksia mutta mulla ei ole tasan ainuttakaan. Ei yhtään. Tai oikeastaan, lupasin itselleni että harjaan hiuksiani vähän useemmin kuin aamulla ennen töihin lähtöä. Jos se siis lasketaan, muuten, mulla ei ole ainuttakaan lupausta. 
Olen niin kyllästynyt lupauksiin, joita ei kuitenkaan voi pitää, niin miksi niitä sitten tekisin itsekään. 
Hahah, ainakin tiedän etten voi pitää lupauksiani. 
Miten sillä sujui vuoden 2015 viimeinen päivä? Mulla oli mukavaa. Katseltiin J'n kanssa raketeita keittiön ikkunasta ja pidettiin kevytmuotoinen HIMYM - maratooni. 
Mun nenä on jotain aivan kuin toisen maailmansodan jälkeen, mutta mulla ei ole enää kuumetta joten huomisesta tuleekin työpäivä. 
Tilasin myös jotain superihanaa, enkä malta odottaa että sen pääsen teille esittelemään. 
Mulla on myös pieni [lue: iso, ainakin mulle] projekti käynnissä ja kun mun ääni on saapunut takaisin keskuuteemme, en malta odottaa että saan sen valmiiksi ja ehkä jopa julkaistuakin. 
Niin paljon siistejä juttuja suunniteltuna vuodelle 2016.
