One with the waves, ocean soul

There is a place for each one of us where our soul finds it’s peace. Mine is close to the water.
Each time I see a river or a lake, my soul starts trembling of joy and my heart almost pops out of my chest. It’s a feeling of being home. A feeling of serenity and peace of mind.
I am a simple person and small things make me happy. But more happy I am when I can see with my own eyes the reflection of the forest or the sky on the lake. And although water is odourless, I feel a special scent of the waves that I cannot put into words and that makes it even more special to me!
That’s why I’ve chosen to film my parts for the Ocean Soul project on a deck over the lake. After filming a few scenes, my beloved one asked me “Aren’t you cold? I am freezing!” and I can honestly tell you that I did not notice the cold wind blowing until he told me.
I was above water and I was free!

The idea of the musical project called Ocean Souls belongs entirely to Dean Kopri and it’s also a part of Kitee International Art & Music Festival. He managed to gather 12 people from different countries together, with different singing styles, created wonderful piano arrangements of the original songs by Nightwish and wrote music sheet for every single voice and instrument. How awesome is that? We all have been working for almost a year now on our parts and although Ocean Souls have played in Kitee (Finland) this summer, some of us couldn’t make it but the other girls simply nailed it! I will leave down bellow our first song published on YouTube for the entire world to listen and stay tuned for more!
And although you can barely see the make-up in the video, here is what I used:
make-up
*Before foundation, I always moisturize my skin with the daily moisturizer with camelina oil by Lumene and leave it for a few minutes to let the skin absorb it*
Foundation: FIT me! by Maybelline (matte + poreless) #105 natural ivory
Beauty blender by PARSA beauty
Concealer: Soft touch mousse by Essence #20 soft sand
Eyeshadow base: I (heart) stage by Essence
Eyebrows:Eyebrow stylist set by Essence
Powder (just a little bit!): New mater maker by Maybelline New York #10 classic ivory
Eyelid highlights: a sparklish-pinkish color from the pallete Magic Studio Naked Way
Eyelid shadow: Ombre essentielle by Chanel #112 pulsion
Eyeliner: Liquid ink eyeliner waterproof by Essence
Mascara: Rock ‘n’ doll by Essence
Bronzer: Bronzing powder by H&M #dark tan (just a bit on the top of the brush otherwise it would look weird on the cheeckbonesbecause I hate getting a tan!)
Lips: XXXL Longlasting lipgloss velvet matt & lipliner #06satin mauve by Essence (I love nude colors for the lips!)
And to set and help the make-up last on the face the whole day, I use the setting spray matte finish from NYX. It’s a life-saver and I love it!
Do you still wonder why your girlfriend is always late on a date? haha!
And at the end of the day, instead of tea with honey and lemon and Paracetamol, I switched to hazelnut vanilla ice cream. Ooops!

My autumn evening routine

The season of cinnamon and cozy sweaters has arrived! It’s also the time when the burgundy color looks perfect on each one of us!

Today I am going to take you into my intimacy, into my evening routine to be exact.

I will start with the delicious Palmolive gourmet body butters that won’t last too long in your shower cabin 😀 Although I love all of them, the vanilla is the one that I completely finish really fast all the time. And compared to other brands, these body butters will leave your skin scented for hours, that’s a promise!

After a long shower, I take my facial cleansing brush and start using my anti-blemish 3 steps system from Clinique. I just simply love these products!

And when I am too lazy to follow the 3 steps above, I moisturize my face with the moisturizing cream from Lumene. Is the first brand I fell in love with the moment I moved to Finland and the only cream that leaves my face soft and not sticky or greasy. I use it every morning and every time before going to sleep.

The body mist from Victoria Secret shouldn’t miss from your bathroom cabinet (or your vanity)!My favorite is “love spell” and I use it everyday after the shower. I actually don’t use it, I bathe in it, haha! 😀 Which one is your favorite?

Now that fall has come, I love to paint my nails with darker colors and this time I use the rouge noir nail polish from Cien. Love the flat brush!

And in the end, my old friend Nivea comes in handy. I grew up with this product and it’s a part of my life! Forever Nivea!

Phewww, now we are done with pampering our body. How about satisfying your hunger with some toast with butter, ham, cheddar cheese, cucumber and aroma salt? mmm…I ate them before taking pictures of my amazing evening toast haha!

And a hot chocolate with a lot of foam would be just fine! and what’s autumn without Jack The Pumpkin King?

In the end, I’m gonna dive into my boyfriend’s DVD collection and now it’s time to let all the vampires in our house mwhaha! I’m obsessed with vampires and everything vampire-related since…I was born (I guess)!

Another thing that I love about autumn is lighting up lanterns outside the house or in the balcony. It seems like a tradition here in Finland, a tradition that I absolutely love! And for tonight, we have a cookie scented candle lightening up our balcony!
