bring on 2011


I hope that everyone has an amazing new year. 2010 has been amazing for me. I've met lots of wonderful people, had an amazing trip to New York, found new interests, finally decided what I want to do with my life :D, got in contact with relatives I haven't spoken to in over 10 years, and so much more. 

I hope that 2011 is going to be just as amazing!

silver bells

 I love Christmas! for so many reasons but most of all because I get to be creative. I spend more time planning how to wrap a gift rather than thinking what the gift should be. It has always been a tradition in my family that I make the Christmas cards rather than buying them from a store. Sure they aren't "Martha Stewart perfect" but I just think it's so much more thoughtful making them yourself even if it means that I have to sit at my desk surrounded by piles of glitter and glue for hours. Speaking of Martha Stewart I think I spent a total of 3 hours on her website today going through and downloading recipes, templates etc. I started under the category Christmas but later ended up in the wedding section. I now have an entire folder dedicated to wedding favors, place cards, decorations and different templates for everything and anything :)
It's independence day tomorrow here in Finland which means no school. I miss 4th of July in the States in Finland independence day is a lot more peaceful and it's more about remembering those who fought for this country (no fireworks, BBQs etc.)

taking my time

It's been a long time since I last wrote, but there are so many other important things I need to take care of and I just don't have time to blog. Test week starts tomorrow, my courses for next spring are a mess, trying to figure out how to get a scholarship, figuring out how to apply to universities outside of Finland (yes, I want to study abroad)..... 
I'll start blogging again when I get everything under control. <3

empire state of mind

 We had lunch by the boathouse with the upper east side crowd. 
imagine mosaic in central park (there was a group tour when we arrived so I couldn't get a picture from another angel) 
tall iced caramel macchiato 
10th ave. and 46th street
Outside the MET

The Dior store was closed hence the giant Lady Dior bag
Loved the Miu Miu store

Here are a few photos from my trip to New York. I don't really have pictures of any tourist attractions since I've been to pretty much all of them before. I'll show you some of the stuff that I got later. I've been trying to take pictures but I can't get enough natural light since it's been gray and rainy all week and the pictures just don't turnout nicely. I'll get back to you soon.

Pazza Notte

So sorry for not posting in a week. Here are a few pictures from one of my favorite places in New York. Pazza Notte on 6th ave. and 55th st. They have the most amazing pizza and their molten chocolate cake (above) is amazing.

oh so pure and innocent

This has nothing to do with fashion or beauty but it was just so adorable I had to tell you. The innocent fruit smoothies are pretty new here in Finland I think they became available about a year ago. Anyways this is the first time I've found them in these bigger bottles rather than in the small serving size bottles, but look at the adorable little details on the packaging.

for no reason

I stopped by a few stores yesterday after school. We had this "field trip" thing where we went to the Helsingin Sanomat offices (local newspaper).  

Stopped by Zara...

and bought the navy blue blazer that I was obsessing over. 

Stopped by H&M and bought a set of 6 golden rings

I picked up the september issue of Vogue and the october issue of Swedish Glamour

The September issue is the size of a brick, as usual 

pistol boots

Nilson for 159€

Acne for 370€

always room for one more

Navy blue Zara blazer available online for the lucky you out there who live in one of the countries that zara now ships to and in stores for the rest of us. Keeping my fingers crossed that they'll add more shipping destinations to the online store soon.
