I love birthdays probably more than Christmas (okay we all know that's a lie) - let's say that I'm more into surprises than birthdays which means that I love to plan surprises for my loved ones. 
I had a day off today and it left me a plenty of time to make the "Happy Birthday" sign, decorate the cake what I was baking the whole last night and make some tasty cupcakes with vanilla frosting. 
When my fiancé got home from work - all of this waited for him and he was so super thankful now 22-year-old.

With having Easter just around the corner I decided to paint some eggs after a really long time. It's been like 10 years since I've actually painted an Easter egg. Now I decided to take it to a whole new level and use nail polish marbling to get lovely space-a-like colours to our this years Easter eggs.


- eggs (obviously)
- water (~hand warm >37°C)
- nail polishes
- toothpicks
- paper
- I would also highly recommend 
you to use disposable gloves, 
my hands are basically purple now


1. Empty your eggs. 
2. Drop a little nail polish to the water, 
you must be quick because it dries 
super quickly.
3. Make a lovely pattern by using a toothpick and
drop the egg to the water. 
4. Pull egg out of the water and place it to 
dry to a paper. 

There you got a cute space themed Easter eggs, would you try this?


EDIT(22/03/16): I forgot to mention that we emptied eggs before decorating.


We are the generation that shares every bit and piece from their lives on different social media platforms. We are the generation who will let the food cool down while we're on a mission to get that perfect picture of our dish with perfect hashtags and filters. After sharing our plate on Instagram, we picturise it to the Snapchat. 
We take 100s of selfies during a day and none of them seems to look good in our eyes but we're still feeling the need to share our faces all around our social medias. 
Our generation seems to be living by likes, shares and followers. Seems like nothing else matters.
When does it go too far? When does it become an sick addiction? When does it change our self-image and makes us feel miserable?
     I use all the social medias every single day, but I don't see it like an addiction. I can go days without checking my facebook or instagram feed. I can go days without posting a thing to any of my social medias. If I post a new picture to Instagram, I honestly don't care how much likes it will get. Not every people feels like this and I guess I know why I feel about social media like I do.
When I was little, computers were so new thing. There was no internet access everywhere and our phones couldn't use wifi. We didn't even had colours in our phones and not to mention about touch screens. My luxury was having NOKIA3310 at age 10 and it had an awesome game called "Snakes" in it.
Today, kids at age 10 are wondering wheter their parents are going to buy them new iPhone, Samsung or Sony. Of course with unlimited use of data, calls and texts. Here I'm going to add that nowadays in Finland we're having unlimited 4G or 3G data access, unlimited texts and unlimited calls basically in every single phone. 
      Other day my fiancé told me how he was driving home from work and stopped to the red light. He saw how a little girl walked across the street without even looking if she had a green or red light. Her light turned to red and she just kept walking staring at her phone. His light turned to green and she still kept walking staring at her phone. My fiancé decided to teach her a lesson and put gear to neutral position so that when he slightly pressed gas, the car didn't move anywhere but made a noise like it would.
Girl immediately turned her head up and quickly ran across the street. 
My fiancé said that the girl had luck that he was there, because if there wouldn't be anyone and the light had been green someone could've just drive fast without noticing that girl who had no idea that her light had turned red. There could've been an accident.
     We walk around staring at our phones. We walk around without seeing what's going on outside of the Internet. We're living through the Internet without having any actual interaction with other people. When we go out with friends, we stare at our phones and text to each other. 
When we go out we want to share every single detail to our social media friends. Taking pictures, writing tweets, snapchatting with strangers and making photo albums to Facebook. What happened to printed photos and albums that are actually there - on your book shelves? When is the last time you read a book?
When is the last time you actually took a pencil and a blank paper and wrote something nice in it? When is the last time you knew the answer to a simple question like "what is the largest mammal in the world?" without using google to answer it for you?
It's blue whale if you're wondering.
I'm not here to judge anyones social media behaviour because I use them a lot too, but I want you all to think about how much you usually use time from your precious life to look after what everybody else is doing or eating.
I've put a lot of thinking to this lately and I just wanted to share everything that's going on my head at the moment.
     Is it worth it all, really? I'm challenging you to choose a day and spend it without using any social medias - let me know how it worked out. 

Just thoughts for your Friday, have fun and get some new experiences lovelies



Planning a wedding is absolutely exhausting. Not physically, but emotionally. It's not all about dancing through the roses. It's freaking horrendous and now I'm going to tell you why.


Okay people, I've finally sailed my way to the wider and brand new foundation seas. If you remember my last post from a while ago when I reviewed Makeup Revolution London The Matte Effect - foundation,  you can remember that I actually was not so satified with that product. 
As a little recap, it didn't fill my needs of being a foundation in my face and cover all the awful small details. 
My little sister recommended me this very affordable L'Oréal Paris Infallible 24-Matte foundation and I picked it up in the shade Vanilla.

Packaging in this foundation is this super simple and cute tube with good font so my old eyes can actually see what the bottle says. Okay, that last one was trying to be funny. 
I've been using this for a few weeks now and I'm actually enjoying of using this. Compared to the old foundation I had, this one is a much thicker. I tend to mix this with face moisturiser so I can get it to be more bb-cream-a-like. I'm not used to this texture yet.
It's easy to spread and I'm using for spreading the Makeup Revolution London's "beauty blender", so it works out pretty well. 
This is also hiding really well all the flaws and Chanel's under my eyes, so points from that. It also stays on really well and my face doesn't look like a dead rodent after a rough day at work. 
I'm really satisfied. 
This also is really affordable, ~18.50€, but it was on sale when I got it so it was a whole lot cheaper. 

Have you ever tried this foundation?



What is rheumatoid arthritis actually?
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic joint disease. It's not infectious even tho some people at my school first thought so when I was diagnosed with it. 
Reasons why people are diagnosed with this disease are unknown, but they've made research about things that are effecting for things that cause rheumatoid. 
These things are smoking, especially with men and it can also be inheritable. 
 For me, it effects mostly to my knees but I've noticed some pain in my fingers if I'm spending a lot of time writing with my computer. 
Rheumatoid arthritis can be controlled with eating, exercise and medication like the one's I used (Trexan & acid folic combination).
If the joint becomes inflamed, it's treated with cortisone. 

My little brother tends to cheer me up when I'm feeling sad, not that he would know anything about the stuff I'm going through but he's there. This picture is also super out of context in this blog post.

So why does having the rheumatoid arthritis sucks? 


If I'm trying to hold an object very tightly in my hands, I can't press it hard. That means that I'm basically unable to do pull ups, because my hands pressing force is so minimal that I can't hold myself up with my hands. 


Because the problem is with my knees, they're becoming a huge pain in the ass by just being there. If I stand or walk for too long, they're aching really bad. 
That means that if I once had a dream of becoming a professional dancer, I don't have it anymore. Dancing needs legs, mine doesn't work. 


If my knee joint becomes inflamed, the pain is insane. I can't walk, I just roll around the apartment trying to find me some pain killers. I proved it earlier today about an hour before writing this post. It doesn't feel good. Also, my right side knee is almost 3 times bigger than on the left side. 
Cold, uplift and compression huh? Well, it helps a little.


When I was on my rheumatoid medication I got fat. Yes, I know this is a bit superficial because it's health we're talking about - but after I read what medication can do to my body, it doesn't feel like that anymore. I did research on my own about the medication I was designated with and I found out that it contains ingredients that can have a negative impact for my future. 
You know, having babies and stuff so it didn't take long for me to figure out what for that acid folic was because acid folic is a really important thing when trying to get pregnant or being pregnant.


This is not like a chicken pox you get when you're 5-years-old and you never have to suffer from it again. 


This means that I'm getting flu and other stuff easier, because my immune system basically is attacking against my own cells. Becoming inflamed easier, because my immune system is destroying the wrong cells. 


Which basically means that because my medication is so rough stuff, it can destroy the foetus at any time. So if I ever get pregnant, it's going to be hard and a painful journey. For my knees, because of gaining weight and after using medication that basically hurts my wombs fertility.
It still doesn't mean that I won't be able to have babies, I am and it's kind of a relieving thing to know. And who knows, when the time someday (not very soon) comes, it might not be painful or difficult at all. 

This was just a little info package about the stuff I've been going through with my life earlier and now that my knee is aching pretty badly, I think I have to set an appointment for my doctor after three "healthy" quiet years. I've been suffering this for 9 years now and it sucks but I'm kind of used to it. It has become the part of who I am and if I'm feeling any pain I know when to calm down.
Especially at work where I need to walk all the time and everywhere, when I'm in a lot of pain I sit down, breathe and try to do my work while sitting. 
Easier said than done.

- 350g of pasta Penne
- 2 chicken breast files
- 1 package of bacon (if you 
want to leave it off, it's totally fine -
pasta will be still delicious!)
- 1 onion
- 2 garlic nails
- 1 box of cherry tomatoes
- 1 tablespoon of chicken fond du
- 1 box of spinach
- 3dl of food cream

& parmesan cheese, salt & pepper for seasoning
(I left the salt off because bacon has so much salt 
in it)


1. Heat the oven in 200°C degrees 
and cook the chicken for 15-25 minutes.

2. Boil the pasta in 
salted water.

3. Slice the bacon and
put it to a cold frying pan. Let it 
heat up slowly so the grease will melt.

4. Add sliced onion & garlic and cook them
in the frying pan until the bacon is ready.

5. Cut tomatoes in  half and add them to
the pan. Season with salt & pepper.

6. Add cream and fond du & let it cook for few minutes.

7. Add sauce to the pasta and
put spinach to the mix.

8. You can slice the chicken and mix it with
the pasta, or leave it like I did and then add some parmesan 
& enjoy your pasta.
