Book Looks.

2014-05-30, at 20:24:53
 
A while ago I discovered a youtuber called Whitney through Joey Graceffa's Storytellers series,
and I fell completely in love with her videos and her personality. She's a book nerd who collects antique books, she's a bit of an Anglophile and she has an incredible sense of style.
 
The videos that I loved the most were her Book Looks videos,
where she creates outfits inspired by her favourite books. Her latest Book Looks video
inspired by James Bond is incredibly well-made and gorgeous!

Geeky tops
 
Geeky tops by melody-moonchild featuring a charcoal gray t-shirt
 
I haven't uploaded a polyvore collage in a really long time,
and I wanted to make a collage of the spring/summer trends this year. When I tried, however,
I just couldn't do it. Because that's not what interests me.
So I ended up making a collage of things that do interest me instead -
geeky things!

Reckless Love Live @ Virgin Oil.

2014-05-25, at 11:32:04
 
This was literally me last Friday. Definitely one of the best nights in my entire life!
 
Last Friday my friends and I spent over two hours on the train to Helsinki, just to see Reckless Love live.
If you haven't heard Reckless Love's music before, I definitely recommend listening to their new album.
They're one of the few reasons I'm actually proud of my home country.
It was such a crazy trip, and I got home at about 9 a.m. yesterday, since our train back to Turku departed at 5.20 a.m. It was so worth everything, though, because Reckless Love's amazing stage presence and Olli's sex appeal alone are reason enough to see them live. It doesn't really hurt that their music is kickass too.
 
I got my foot completely demolished by a really pushy woman, though. Later on she actually made a girl in the front row cry because she pushed her so hard on her quest to get to the front row. Olli was such a sweetheart and got the rest of the band to stop playing and called her out on her bullshit, asked the girl who was crying if she was OK and then told the audience that we were there to have fun, not to fight. Bless him!



I'm 100% sure these men were born to break my heart. <3

The Other Woman

2014-05-22, at 20:56:14
Quotes xx
(x)
 
I just came home from the cinema,
I went to see The Other Woman for the second time with my dear friend Jasmin.
I really needed this break from reality, I'm always so relaxed when I'm with her.
If you haven't seen The Other Woman yet, you definitely should!
It's hilarious! The only downside is that you get very jealous of the beautiful women.
 
Funny story: When we were on our way back home we passed a bright green car on the motorway.
The car was driving quite slowly, but a while after we'd passed it they drove up alongside of us.
The car was full of Jamaican guys, and it looked like the guy in the backseat was taking pictures of us,
and after he finished with whatever he was doing they slowed down again.
It was such an odd event!

Doppelgänger.

2014-05-21, at 10:53:15
 
Some say I look like Amy Pond - but what if it's Amy Pond who looks like me?
 
I'm thoroughly starting to enjoy life as Amy Pond's doppelgänger,
it's so much easier to take care of and style my hair now!
It's also nice now that the weather's started to become a bit warmer, having a long, thick mane of hair
in the summer isn't very pleasant at all.
I'm now confident that this was the right decision to make. :)

Fancy.

2014-05-19, at 20:57:29
The Australian singer Iggy Azalea's song Fancy
is predicted to become this year's greatest summer song, even though a lot of people really hate it.
I must admit that it's one of those songs that you kind of hate when you listen to it for the first time,
but as you're forced to listen to it on the radio et.c. it really grows on you (as long as you don't take yourself too seriously).
I also love that the music video is a parody of Clueless, one of the most iconic teen movies ever made!

Stolen dance.

2014-05-19, at 20:20:39
 
Odd selfie from before I cut my hair.
 
My life's been crazy busy lately,
I only got a few hours of sleep a night last week because of various school projects, and last Friday
I ended up with the headache from hell. It was probably because I'd been so stressed all week and something just snapped when I finally had time to relax for a bit again.
I've also finally realised that I'm actually moving in about a year and a half, which makes me both excited and terrified. I can't wait, though!
 
By the way, it's been disgustingly hot and humid over here today due to the thunder.
I'm really not made for this hot weather, and I could practically feel my brain melting earlier today.
This whole town feels like a giant greenhouse!

Make the cut!

2014-05-10, at 17:53:04
 
I've thought about cutting my hair short for a very long time now,
my hair had gotten so long that I didn't feel like it was worth the effort anymore. Brushing and washing
it was such a chore, and it was in a very bad condition. This is why, yesterday, I decided to take the leap and chop 30 cm off.
It feels so weird, and I almost had a minor panic attack at the hairdresser when I saw how much hair was gone,
but I must say that I really like it!

Before - After

I think this change is long overdue. Time to be happy again!

No water in the water fountain.

2014-05-08, at 20:41:56
 
I stayed home today because I've been ill since yesterday,
I've tried to treat it by drinking copious amounts of tea, eating cough drops and taking it easy.
I'm feeling a lot better now though, so I'm probably going back to school tomorrow.
I have an appointment with the hairdresser tomorrow, too, so I really hope the fever feels like staying away. :)
 
What have you been up to today?

I supported the Rickshaw Run!

2014-05-04, at 08:09:36
 
Remember last autumn when I donated to Jacksgap's charity for the Teenage Cancer Trust?
Well, I finally got my t-shirt, card and a complimentary Maoam! The t-shirt is a bit larger than I thought it'd be,
but I'm thinking about cutting it into a top or something... or using it to sleep in!
 
On a different note, I'm going to Helsinki today with my parents to visit my grandma who's in hospital,
so my blog might be a bit quiet today. Have a lovely Sunday!

By your side.

2014-05-01, at 11:08:25
 
My day yesterday started off quite well,
school wasn't very stressful and we had some form of event together with the Finnish school for two hours.
We also moved the choir practice until next week, because only three people showed up (spoiler alert: I wasn't one of them).
I got a huge shock when I got home, though, because apparently my grandma's now in hospital.
I first thought about staying home so I'd know if anything happened, but my mum more or less forced me to go to Turku to party with my friends.
 
I honestly have the best friends ever,
so I just wanted to share this Tokio Hotel (don't judge...) song with you.
I think it reflects my emotions perfectly, because my friends have really been there for me lately, and I just want them to know I'll always be there for them too.
 
Ich bin da, wenn Du willst.
Schau Dich um, dann siehst du Mich.
Ganz egal, wo Du bist.
Wenn Du nach mir greifst, dann halt ich Dich.
