Changes

We all need a change sometimes. It doesn’t matter if it’s a life change, hair change or whatever kind of change it is. Changes make us feel better for sure!

I personally felt that I needed a change and I got myself a pair of contact lenses and of course, I bleached my ends at home three tones lighter (it’s Christmas time and my other personality needs glitter and a lot of color!). I’ve always been afraid of contact lenses, especially when last year I tried for the first time some red contacts for a Halloween project of mine and trying to put them on almost made me cry and my hands were trembling and my eye lids just didn’t want to stay still for a second. Not to mention how uncomfortable they were. Back then I swore that I will never buy contacts again. Until last weekend while I was in Helsinki, I stopped by at my favorite shop: CyberShop.
Wandering among racks filled with goodies, I stumbled upon the glass cabinet under the point of sale and there they were: my turquoise contacts waiting for me to be taken home. After a long conversation with a very friendly girl who works at the shop, I bought them. And once I got home, I read all the instructions, I left them in their moisturizing solution for 6 hours and the next day I gave contact lenses another chance. Plus, I got myself some eye drops for my dry eyes (hint 😉 ).

This time it went better than I expected and I am so happy to finally be able to wear them! I’ve been loving turquoise/blue/ eyes since forever and now I can have them!

If you’re interested in buying your first pair or your next pair of contact lenses, I highly recommend you CyberShop! The site is safe (and also in English), the staff extremely friendly, the prices affordable, high quality contact lenses and a big variety to choose from!

Tea time and meeting Don Rosa in Helsinki


On a dreary day of November, I hopped on a train and one hour later, I found myself in the crowded Helsinki.
I’ve been waiting for this day for so long and I wasn’t even sure that I will make it in time for the Don Rosa meeting but I did!
One cup of tea later and suddenly one of the women who work at the book store (Suomalainen Kirjakauppa) was announcing that Don Rosa has arrived half an hour earlier so we should get in line, purchase the book and automatically we will get a ticket to go and meet the author and illustrator of the stories about Scrooge McDuck, etc.
I felt again like a kid listening to his pleasant voice explaining to me the artwork and other details that he did for Tuomas Holopainen‘s solo album. Later on while I was watching the videos from the meeting, I noticed that my facial expression was like a hyper excited kid’s expression. Just how I actually look when I watch any Disney movie.

*Waiting for my train after a shopping spree in CyberShop

The meeting was worth the trip! And now I sit in front of this writing device (aka laptop) and wonder, what would life be without art? Without all these magical things that come out of every artist’s hands?
But I know that all I wanna do in life is ART. Oh! And I don’t wanna grow up. E V E R .

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.
