Winter Wardrobe Staples - Knitted Cardigans

Winters are cold.
That was basically the only sentence I had written when I re-opened my draft. Felt so intelligent lol. But hey, it's very true. And to be honest with you, I don't like cold. Cool I love, but cold is just uncomfortable. Unless you can stay inside all day under a blanket, eat sweets and drink hot drinks. Cold weather dries your skin, gives you a runny nose and makes life very annoying for an asthmatic person! Since a weather machine is yet to be invented, all you can do is cope with it (or fly away to a warmer country mmmm... a girl can dream right?)! And one way to do that is to wear super warm and cozy clothes!

Champagne makeup tutorial

 Happy Friday lovelies. Who's been shopping today? Black Friday isn't a huge thing here in Finland, infact I think this is the first year I've seen Black Friday sales anywhere. But there were some sales going on and I went to check them out at our local shopping center. I found a couple of Christmas presents for my little sisters and a dress for myself. And of course I found loads of things to add to my Christmas wishlist...

Festive Season Giveaway !

My darlings, I have a little surprise for you. I recently reached 100 followers on Bloglovin, which I know to be a teeny tiny step in the blogging world but a huge and exciting step for me and my little blog. I'm so thankful to every one of you. Words can't even describe it. But I hope a little giveaway will describe my gratefulness.

Lipsticks for the Festive Season

Now then, to end my little series of Holiday makeup, I'll show you my picks of lipsticks which I can see myself wearing during December. I'm generally way more of a lipstick girl than a lip gloss girl, because my long hair doesn't get along with sticky lip glosses. Oh the hard decisions of life: to cut my hair short or to give up lip gloss. Jookes!

What's in my travel makeup bag?

It's Friday yeiii! And that means it's time for another video. I feel like I'm getting into a bit of a routine here: I write posts on Mondays and Wednesdays and Friday is video day. And it's working out quite well too for me! 

In today's video I reveal the contents of my travel makeup bag, which I take with me when I go away for a weekend. Basically I take my everyday essentials with me everywhere. When my trip lasts a weekend I also take a couple of extra bits and bops. And if it lasts longer... well, let's put it this way: I would use a "slightly" bigger makeup bag.

Nail Polishes for the Festive Season

It's time for part two in my little Holiday season series. And today I'd like to show you my picks for nails. Since I basically teared my gel nails off after last summer (I know, not the proper way to do it, but tens of euros cheaper), I've had to wear nail polish at all times because my nails are still recovering. Having said that, I don't think it's a disadvantage at all. Polished nails are so pretty!

Eye Shadows for the Festive Season

So, yes, I'm early. But the holidays aren't that far away! I've already even attended one pre-Christmas party and so I thought it would be really nice to share some of my favourite makeup picks for the upcoming season. Anyway, I know I'm not the only crazy person, who starts craving for christmassy treats, decorations and products way too early ;)

Fashion Haul & Try-on

It's the weekend woop woop! Although for me that will mean work, work and work, I don't mind. It's still Friday evening and I love that time of the week (who doesn't?). Tell me, what do you have planned for this weekend?

To kick off this weekend I have a fairly chatty try-on haul video for you! Check it out and let me know what you thought of my new clothes! I personally can't wait to wear them. And also the two Christmas products (plus the jumper!) make me want to decorate our house with elves and other seasonal things.

My Candle Collection

I love scented candles. Especially in the autumn and winter time, when it gets really dark really early, On many evenings you could find me sitting on our sofa with all the lights switched off and our flat filled with candles. They make any evening feel cosy and walking into a room with a scented candle burning is absolutely sensational!

Read & Relax

Hey everybody! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Mine was pretty hectic but I still managed to visit my parents and Eero's parents, which was nice since it was Father's Day here in Finland. But today is my day off and while Eero is going to watch Jarkko Nieminen and Roger Federer play tennis, I think I'll dedicate my evening to reading and relaxing.

Naked Smoky tutorial

I bought the Naked Smoky palette a couple of weeks ago for myself as a little treat. I've been getting a lot of use out of it and it's quickly becoming one of my favourite eye shadow palettes. The quality of the eye shadows is just amazing! They're really pigmented, super blendable and the shades are so beautiful!

To do in November

Happy November peeps! It's another month and I can't believe there are only two months left of this year. I feel like I still want to do so many things before the year changes! Can somebody please stop the time for a bit? 

Since nobody has invented a time turner yet and I haven't received a letter from Hogwarts, I guess the best thing to do at this point is to organize: take out a calendar and a to do -list and start planning ahead. Which is exactly what I intend to do right now.

1. Write thesis
This is a must. I want it as ready as possible before next January, so that when I go to London at the beginning of next year I can totally concentrate on Primark and Boots. Lol. 

2. Revise German
I have an exam coming up at the end of this month. I've really enjoyed studying this language and want to get a fairly good grade. Compared to my major subject, which is educational science, you can't just go rambling on about things in a German exam, instead you really have know your grammar and vocabulary. 

3. Celebrate my hubby's birthday
Birthday's are always exciting, don't you think? Receiving presents is fun alright but giving presents is just totally cool! 

4. Do some serious Christmas shopping
The clever thing to do would be to start buying presents for everybody yesterday. The earlier the better. I acknowledge this every year, and yet I always find myself shopping for the last presents a day before Christmas together with thousands of other people. 

5. Put up Christmas decorations
I usually put up my Christmas tree and lights when the lights on Oxford street are lit. But they did that pretty early this year it seems and I just noticed I'm already late. I need to fix another date for myself. 

6. Get ready for London
Going away for a whole month means I need a place to stay, pack sensibly and just plan everything ahead. But I'm so excited about this that I don't think I really even need to remind myself to prepare for the journey. Whiiii! 

What do you have planned for the rest of the year? And when do you start preparing for Christmas?

Two years ago I said YES

Exactly two years ago I got the most wonderful surprise of my life. I woke up and was told to stay in the bedroom for a while. Eero left the room and after twenty minutes or so, ordered me to close my eyes. He lead me to our living room, put some music on and told me to open my eyes. The room was filled with candles and roses and chocolate. After two years of being together, he knelt down and I said yes, of course. I can't believe that was two years ago.

After our engagement we decided on a day pretty quickly and slowly started preparing for the wedding. We had a year and a half to get everything done for it. I think it was perfect. We had loads of time to plan and decide on the theme and venue and other things important. But also I would have probably gone bonkers if I had had to wait any longer!

Last summer we finally got married and it was honestly the best day of my life. I got to marry the love of my life, my best friend and soulmate. Being married to Eero is the best thing in the world. Now that I've gone through getting married, I totally understand why some people don't feel like they don't need to get married. Because it doesn't change anything. Well maybe legally it does, but I'm more interested in the emotional side. We care about each other just as much as before the wedding.

But also, getting married is just so cool. It's so much fun to have all the important people in your life around you. I mean, who doesn't love a good party, which you've planned just the way you want it to be. If you don't want to get married then seriously consider organizing a love party or something. It can be big or small, a get together or a festival. 

So today is the second anniversary of our engagement. We celebrated by having a little tea moment together with vanilla cream filtered buns, before going to work later on in the afternoon. It was just as life should be, making the most of the little moments of life. <3

Have a lovely week everybody!
