sneak peek

Didn't have class after lunch today so I went to Zara to pick up this little big beauty. It has been out of stock for months so you can imagine my excitement when I saw it on the shelf.
You'll have to excuse me for the picture. Took it in the changing room where the lighting isn't the best neither is the camera that I used. But I'll upload some more pictures soon.

Snapped a few pictures today at Zara. Went downtown to pick up some stuff for my art diploma course. I need a portfolio to showcase the whole project in but returned empty handed as I realized I'm not completely sure what I want to do.
 I've tried this knit a few times but I'm not completely decided yet if I like it or not.

I have so much school work right now it's insane! besides that I also feel like I might be developing a cold. I'll try to get some school work out of the way this weekend so I'll have more time to blog.

Zara has recently launched a new application on their website called PEOPLE!
If you would like to take part, all you have to do is create an account and upload photos featuring at least 2 main pieces from the a/w collection. If your picture is chosen and featured on the website you get 300€. Sounds pretty damn awesome to me.
Check it out at: Zara PEOPLE!

141011-London shopping

Here are some of the things I bought while I was in London.
 Zara v-neck sweater and sequinned clutch. Both of which I wanted really badly so I'm super happy.

 Navy and white sweater from COS. I got it in a size M so that it looks oversized which is just how I like my sweaters. 

I bought the Kiehl's ultra facial cleanser when Kiehl's first opened in Helsinki and since I really liked it I decided to try out the other products as well. I'll do a full review of the products in a few weeks.

apartment inspo

As we (on the northern half of the globe) are once again starting to move towards the cold dark winter, well at least that's what it's like here in Finland. It also means that my love for interior design rekindles. Here are a few pictures for some end of the week inspiration.

I'm back!

Got back from London yesterday, and I have to say that must have been one of the best trips ever! Move over New York and Paris, London is my new favorite city! I'll be uploading pictures from the trip as well as a Paris fashion week recap within the next few days.

1. L'occitane 20% shea butter hand cream
2. Kiehl's #1 lip balm
3. Mac cream blush in Lilicent
4.Clarins hydra-matte lotion

travel series-part 1

At the end of this week I'll be going to London for a few days. I've decided to do a little series of posts, showing you what I like to wear, pack etc. when I travel.
Here is a quick look at what I like to wear whenever I'm at the airport. I know you've heard it a hundred times but layers really are the key when you travel. When it comes to pants I always opt for jeans and for shoes, my favorite pair of ankle boots are just as comfortable and easy to take off as a pair of sneakers.
