Warm autumn day

I’ve dusted off my old hobbies/passions, took the camera out of the forgotten drawer and went out into Mother Nature’s arms.

The arrival of autumn always breaks my creative blocks and brings me an indescribable joy! Doing all the things that I’m doing is like food for my soul. With all that, the sweaters come along, the cozy nights on the couch spent next to my beloved one and the pumpkin season!

And now all my weekends are booked. And by “booked” I mean that I will not do anything else but C R E A T E . Music, videos, sculptures, absolutely everything my “itchy fingers” crave for. Because morning wake-ups and running errands every day during the week keep me away from the things that I love.

So, with that being said, I’m back to business and hello autumn!

Outfit:

Oversized sweater: thrifted 

Shorts: New Look

Bag: Killstar

Laceup belt: BikBok

Shoes: Marelbo

Necklace; Alchemy Gothic

Two years in Finland

Two years ago I started my journey to Finland and now I can happily say that I permanently live here ❤

I wanted to go somewhere and film something exciting for my readers/subscribers but all my plans have been shattered by the nasty weather…so I ended up in front of my laptop playing this game called “Influent”. While playing, I recorded myself talking nonsense and just having fun failing 😀

Enjoy the video and cheers to two years in Finland!

May

May has been a quiet and a busy month at the same time but I am back with a new mini travel vlog 🙂
Although I had many plans for my trip to Helsinki, they all have been ruined by the cloudy cold weather.

A trip with adventures – although I had two cameras with me, the moment I wanted to take photos in front of Tuomikirkko, I took the DSLR out of my bag and I was wondering why it was sooo…”not so heavy” until I realized that I have forgotten the battery in the unplugged charger…And also my friend came from Romania here for the first time so it was wonderful to “relive” moments from my first visit to Helsinki which happened in 2013.

 

A day after Easter…

I almost forgot how wonderful it feels to spend time in nature doing some…”unusual” things like drinking something from a fancy glass or eating Easter eggs 😀 I just did it on the 1st day of Easter, grabbed my tripod and some “snack” and off I went into the woods and I must say that I froze up. Never trust the Finnish sun!

A little adventure never killed anyone! 


Before you ask, the choker is from Asos and I’m stunned by its beauty! 😍

And it’s now on sale! Get it while it’s cheap! 

My Halloween 2016

You may wonder how has my Halloween been? Well, all I can say is it was peaceful. I haven’t been anywhere but I made my house look a bit (more) creepier and I surprised my beloved one because I love to surprise him each and every single day with anything that pops up in my mind.

I also made a video for you to see the decorating process so check it out!

’till next time! ❤

The last warm days

I know it’s been a few weeks since I didn’t write here but I’m back!

Suomenlinna – is the place where I always like to go whenever I’m in Helsinki. I got a ticket from the ticket machine at the Market Square and I jumped in the ferry. The journey to the sea fortress takes around 10 minutes but I never count how long it takes because it feels amazing to be on top of the water and to have the wind playing with your hair and seagulls flying above at the same pace with the ferry. It feels like you are one of them. One with the nature!

This time I explored the island a bit more and I have discovered places where I could hide and be alone. Places where I can have the Baltic Sea at the bottom of my feet and then rest in a coffee shop with a hot chocolate and an original Fazer chocolate candy. All these things you can see yourself below. Enjoy!DSC_0109.jpgdsc_0144

And as a blog post ending “delight”, here is a mini travel vlog 🙂 See you next time!

Cheerio, darlings!

 

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!
