Happy christmas eve eve everyone! I can’t believe it’s already 23rd of december and before I even get to blink christmas will be over. I have always been christmas person, I love everything about it. The snow, the music, decorating the christmas tree, the christmas lights, buying presents and of course being with my family. This year I haven’t really found the festive spirit no matter how much I have listened to christmas music and how many gingerbread cookies I have baked. I guess you just don’t get fully festive every year then. Can anyone else relate to this or am I some kind of nutcase haha?

Cardigan – Mango // T-shirt – Mango // Jacket – Zara // Scarf – Zara // Jeans – Zara

Now after way too much of rambling let’s get into the outfit shall we? There are some fashion trends that pull most of people towards during christmas time. For me those trends are something shiny/glitterish and velour. Of course I have also been feeling red a lot more than usually during December. I bought both the cardigan and the t-shirt from black friday sales and to be honest if it wasn’t christmas I probably would have left the glitter detailed t-shit to the store. But well, I am so glad I didn’t because who doesn’t need little pinch of Sex and The City statement in their wardrobe?

The cardigan is such a dream come true, it’s big and chunky which is something really necessary during this cold season. And since red is such a color itself already rest of the outfit is full of my beloved black as you can see. Black leather jacket, black ripped jeans and black scarf, yes perfect.

So there you have my very festive (not really I know but let’s pretend okay?) outfit. Little bit something shiny with a pinch of chunky red. I know you will be blown away when I say this but yes, I didn’t find the christmas spirit through this outfit, so shocking I know.

Let’s admire my beauty advent calendar

Let’s admire my beauty advent calendar

IMG_0405_2

When I was a kid the most existing thing about christmas was the fact that every morning when you woke up you were allowed to eat a little piece of chocolate that came from your advent calendar. And now even though I am all adult and grown december is not december without a christmas advent calendar. I was planning on buying that good old chocolate calendar but then I came across this beauty and yes my friends, it was time to ditch the chocolate and switch the advent calendar game a little.

And honestly guys this calendar is such a game changer. I have never seen anything as beautiful and aesthetically pleasing. It’s so pretty that I seriously didn’t want to open the doors to ruin the look of it. But um, obviously I got over that hehe.

The calendar is by Finnish skincare brand Lumene. I have always loved their products because a) they have such a good quality b) all the ingrients are from finland and c) as i already said their products are so pleasing for the eye. They have relieved all the products that the calendar includes but I honestly want to be surprised when I open the boxes so all I know is that there is lots of skincare products and some beauty products.

Behind the first door I got a glow boost drops that you are supposed to apply on your clean and fresh face. I have tried them once now, and holy moly the smell is absolutely amazing. Behind the second door I got a beautiful nail polish in the shade On the Beach. It’s such a nice soft pink color.

And that’s all I have opened so far. Please let me know if you would like to see a full review of all the 24 treats once I have tried them. Because I would be more than happy to do it yay.  Thank you for reading, hope you all have had a lovely start of december!

OOTD: Got those street style vibes

What does street style even mean? A specific style of fashion that is inspired by urban street people or just simply a type of fashion that is personal to you. Who knows. I guess everyone can define it themselves but for me this outfit was screaming street style. Because after all I was wandering around the streets wearing them clothes looking oh so stylish (sarcasm? yes). Haha.

I don’t know why I am so obsessed with red right now but I can’t stop myself from buying new beautiful pieces that have at least a pinch of red in it. Maybe it’s because red is one of the colors during christmas, or maybe I have finally jumped out of my comfort zone which was filled with neutral colors, who knows. The point is: Red all the way and I’m lovin’ it!

Sweater – Zara // Jacket – Zara // Skirt – Zara // Hat – Brixton // Shoes – Adidas 

I first thought that I couldn’t match red with anything else than black & white but look at me trying to add the pinch of color with that blue denim skirt. It’s a little bit too big for me but I loved the pearl details of it too much so I just couldn’t leave it to the store. Now since the cold weather is here and I have huge urge to wear oversized sweaters and everything comfy in general it being slightly too big works just fine. I can sneakily hide all the extra fabric underneath it.

And what comes to black & white, I think my black Brixton hat is a perfect match for red. It’s something that you see on the streets a lot these days and no wonder why as it’s simply just so gorgeous. And to have more black on my outfit I added black tights and a leather jacket. And then last but not least the pinch of white that was necessary: my Adidas sneakers. I will stick to them until there is snow on the ground and my feet will freeze.

To be honest I never thought I would find myself wearing huge oversized sweaters. But yet here I am obsessing over everything big, soft and comfy. And the bigger the better. This sweater I am wearing is from Zara and it’s definition of comfy. It’s so big that it reaches almost my knees which I absolutely love. The wool is soft and warm surprise surprise I know. Perfect for cold autumn days, and even more perfect once winter is here. Also when haven’t I loved beige? Never, indeed. Thank god it seems to go never out of style, not at least this fall as all the stores are filled with the shades of brown. So please let’s take a moment to appreciate the perfect oversized sweater. Thank you.

Sweater – Zara // Trousers – Monki // Backpack – Longchamp // Shoes – Vagabond (similar)

Since I am quite a small person I have been struggling with how to wear this big sweater.    I have seen so many people rocking oversized sweaters but when I tried to do the same with mine, nothing looked good. Then I came across these checked trousers in Monki and BOOM I was in love. Perfect match, almost at least. These trousers have slightly oversized fit which is why they are super nice on. And all I care about during this cold season is confines so yes you will see a lot more of these in the future.

I don’t know where it came from, but I have been wearing thin black socks underneath trousers and I am loving how it looks. I guess it adds nice detail, just like my beloved Daniel Wellington watch. I bet you all have already seen it so many times but it just brings nice class for the look.

Anyway enough with my rambles, please share your thoughts about oversized sweaters! Are you in for the bigger the better like me or nah? Thank you if you stopped by!

OOTD: That perfect biker jacket for fall

When it comes to fashion and clothes, everyone has their own favorite pieces or ‘categories’ that keep pulling them towards. For some it’s shoes, for some it’s bags or maybe sweaters. For me it’s coats and jeans. I can’t go a new season without a new coat, not even if I try to. I just always find an excuse why I should buy a new one, even if my wallet is telling me no.

Biker styled jackets have been in for a quite long time now and honestly I have had such a huge love and hate relationship with them. First I felt like they were too big for me, then I didn’t like how cropped they were. Now when my eyes caught this perfect piece from Zara all those thoughts were gone, poof. Maybe it was the suede that got me but oh I was in love. The jacket is faux suede with a warm and soft interior lining. Aka perfect for Finnish weather. It is definitely something that everyone needs to add to their wardrobe, it goes with everything simple as that.

Coat – Zara // Trousers – Monki // Shoes – Adidas // Rings – Weekday

And now moving on with the outfit. The jeans, or more like trousers really. I got these beauties from Monki, and yes the texture is corduroy even though the pictures are telling otherwise. I am really happy that cord is officially back in business because come on, it  easily beats denim during this cold season that we are about to enter. They are warm and oh so soft, and isn’t that exactly what this autumn is all about?

It wasn’t hard to choose a shoes to match with this outfit because biker jackets and sneakers are basically meant to be. And since I am obsessed with my Adidas sneakers, I pulled them on without hesitation and I was good to go. Oh and the rings were nice final touch, even though the pictures (again) aren’t doing justice for them.

I’ll Give You the Sun: A book that everyone should read

IMG_0315_2

“The sun, stars, ocean, trees, everything. I gave it all up for you.”

I never read books. Not that I don’t like reading, because I absolutely love when a book consumes me. I am just very hard to please. I easily quit reading if I don’t like the story or if I get bored with it. It’s been ages since I have loved a book so much that I couldn’t put  it down. And to be honest I was little skeptical when I bought I’ll give you the sun. But before even noticing I was deep in the story, eating the text with my eyes. And that’s how it should always be. So ladies and gents here is review of a book that I got sucked into.

The story follows twin siblings, Noah and Jude in a different points in their lives. Noah tells the story when he and his sister are close, in a way that only twins can be. And Jude tells the story few years later when both of the twins are broken by horrible tragedy that drove them apart.

IMG_0314_2

When I started the book I immediately fell in love with Noah. His character is really sweet, lovable and lonely. He dedicates his life for arts, and draws everything he sees and feels. He doesn’t have friends until the new boy next door who changes everything.

Jude I truly hated at first. In Noah’s story she is full of life and doing all the crazy things such as cliff diving. She is growing up and leaving Noah behind as she goes. Eventually I understood Jude and her actions and learned to absolutely love her too. In her story she is broken and full of guilt. The book pages are filled with quotes from a bible that she keeps with her. They descrabe her feelings and fit into the story perfectly, for example:

“If bad luck knows who you are become someone else”.

Without releasing themselves both of them only know half the story, which you learn to put together while reading. The story is full of blog twists, big and small. Some you see coming and some will absolutely shock you. Slowly everything falls into a place.

IMG_0319

The story is absolutely heartbreaking but yet full of hope and all kinds of love. You will be filled with emotions which is why I don’t recommend reading this in public. The book will break you over and over again. Jandy Nelson knew exactly how to get to the reader. I have never cried as much as I cried while reading this book. And once I finished it (with way too much tears) I knew I had to read it again, I just needed to get back into the stories again, back into their world for little longer.

If you like John Green’s and Rainbow Rowell’s books, this is a must read for you (and for everyone in general), I know you will absolutely love it. Now enough for today. Thank you if you made it to the end of this blog post!

Have you Read I’ll give you the sun? Did you like it, please share your thoughts because as you can see I am dying to talk about it.

OOTD: Power of red

OOTD: Power of red

The season of dazzling colors, comfy sweaters and fluffy socks is here. I have been waiting autumn to really kick in as if waiting for rising moon. And finally, as I watch colorful leaves fall from trees and feel the cold crispy wind rushing by, I can say autumn is here.

As much as I love change of the season I happen to love fall fashion more (what a surprise wow). All stores are full of beautiful fall collections and every year there is one color that pops out more than others. Last year it was mustard, this year it’s power red.

Shirt – Weekday  // Wool coat – Seppälä  // Hat – Brixton  // Trousers – H&M  // Backpack – Michael Kors // Shoes – Vans

If you told me few years ago that I am longing for red I would have laughed, hard. It has never been my favorite color but now all suddenly it just keeps pulling me towards. I want to get it all, sweaters, trousers, shirts, scarfs just everything that’s red.  But for now I am sticking with my shirt from weekday.

I think it’s easy to match pieces with red because it’s such a statement itself already. Brown is perfect color match for red so I pulled on my oh so cosy wool coat. I wanted to wear black bottoms (what a surprise again I know) but since I am always wearing jeans I pulled on trousers. A while ago I saw someone wearing thin black socks underneath their pants. So I rolled up the hems of my trousers and tried it myself, not so bad right?

And last but not least the hat. We need to take a moment for it. I mean it’s something that I thought I would never wear but here I am absolutely in love with it. It’s gives some real sailor vibes and it’s just perfect for fall as you sometimes need something to warm your little head.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have good rest of the week. And hey, remember to enjoy this beautiful season that’s going on right now, it won’t last for too long!!
