when night falls

(above: H&M, Stella McCartney and Mimi Holliday) Today has been a really slow day, nothing exciting has happened. School starts again on monday so I have some homework to do and then badminton tomorrow but not much more. Speaking of sports, did anyone see the men's ice hockey game USA vs. Finland yesterday?? I really don't watch sports on tv and the only time when I do is if it's something like the olympics. Out of all the games I've seen that must have been the weirdest one. I mean what happened?? How could Finland let them score 4 goals in 6 minutes?? I sure hope that the bronze medal game goes better than yesterdays. I hope everyone has a good evening and I'll talk to you tomorrow.

another day goes by

Hi, so I got back from Vierumäki already on wednesday but was so exhausted that I didn't feel like blogging. I can barely walk because my legs hurt so much, after 3 hours of horseback riding, 2 hours of badminton, 1 hour of tennis and something like 6 miles of cross country skiing all in 2 days, your legs will hurt trust me.
Anyways yesterday I went to Helsinki with my mom and brother. I got a book called Skönhetsbibeln (Beauty Bible). I also placed an order on amazon so I should be getting a book called "That extra half an inch" and "the september issue" on DVD in about a week. I also wanted to order the "Teen Vogue handbook" but it's on pre-order until may (I have to order through amazon uk) and since my dad is going to NY for a week soon he can pick it up at a Barnes and Noble instead.

Helmut Lang

You must think I'm such a greedy person just telling/showing you all the stuff that I want :D, but here is yet another fall 2010 collection that I adore, this one by Helmut Lang. I would love to own the jackets, something like this is going to be perfect for fall. Can't believe I'm looking forward to fall already, I hate the cold weather I barely survive the winters, can't wait for summer to come.

Hi, february vacation started today which is sooo nice but of course I have to be sick. I have a pounding headache, runny nose and it feels like I'm swallowing needles every time I eat. I really hope I get better fast cause on sunday me and my family are going to a place called Vierumäki. It takes about 2 hours to drive there and we are staying there until wednesday. I wouldn't exactly call the place a ski center since you can't go downhill skiing there, but you can go cross country skiing, play tennis, badminton, basketball, ice skating, horseback riding, swimming etc. Well I have to get some sleep now but I'll get back to you tomorrow.

I love...

...the new RTW collection by Vera Wang. I've always adored her designs and it would be a dream to one day get to wear one of her wedding dresses. Anyways her fall 2010 collection is very chic and includes lots of dark colors like black and grey (which I love). It has a very feminine touch to it with pearls, sleek gloves, feathers and ruffles.

what's in my bag?

So here is a quick look at what's in my bag. The bag itself is from Zara and I bought it in late September(2009) if I remember correctly. This is also the bag I use to carry my school books in but I've decided to show you the stuff that I ALWAYS have with me doesn't matter if I'm shopping, at school or traveling.
So in my bag I always have: my calendar, a few random pens, wallet, iPod, cellphone, rosebud salve, läkerols or other gum, Ray Ban Wayfarers, mirror, hello flawless powder by Benefit, mac dazzleglass in "smile", her glossiness in "who are you wearing" by Benefit, retractable brush and keys.

friday evening

Besides the slight headache from my collision with the wall earlier today it's been a pretty normal day. I walked to the store to get some food and also picked up a few new fashion magazines. Since I was bored I decided to bake some brownies, so I'm enjoying those right now while flipping through the february issue of British VOGUE with the gorgeous Natalia Vodianova on the cover.

bad luck

Hi, today it honestly feels like I'm being followed by a black cat. I told you a few days ago that I was supposed to go to Helsinki to do some shopping today because I didn't have any school. Well I was supposed to take a 9 o'clock bus that way I would be in Helsinki by 10. At one point (when I was still sleeping) I heard that the phone was ringing so I got up to answer. On my way to the phone I pretty much walked right into a wall and hit my head really hard. Also after a while I realized that it was 12 o'clock!!! Who sleeps to 12 on a friday?!?! Apparently I do.
So no shopping for me today, I guess I have to go tomorrow instead, maybe I should set my alarm clock on so I would wake up a bit earlier.

click click camera

Hi, So I promised yesterday that I would put up the "what's in my purse" pictures, well unfortunately I can't do that today, the camera is totally out of battery so it needs to load overnight. Speaking of cameras I just wanted to let you know that the camera I use is a Canon EOS 450D. I have a Sony Cyber-shot 7.2 mega pixels as well but I really don't use it anymore just because the picture quality of the Canon is better. Anyways the bag pictures should be up tomorrow or over the weekend.

tomorrow I want to wear

jacket Helmut Lang, shoes Alexander McQueen, necklace Lee Angel, top T by Alexander Wang, jeans J Brand and bag Alexander Wang.
Gosh I suck at updating well it's no big deal since nothing has happened. Anyways I'm over half way through testweek which is good, I only have swedish and philosophy left. I don't have school on friday so I'm going to go to Helsinki to do some shopping. Also if I have time tomorrow, I thought about posting some "what is in my purse" pictures. I love watching the videos on youtube so I think it would be something fun to do. So I'll talk to you later.
