5 New Year's Resolutions Anyone Can Keep

Sometimes the 1st of January can feel like a mandatory time for growing, learning and other slightly cringy verbs. I’ve never been much for making new year’s resolutions, since often they are promises you wouldn’t normally make. If a goal is truly worth reaching, surely you can work for it despite a certain date on the calendar.

The Big Bang Theory

Some say it’s possible to cut your own bangs – at least if you are not intimidated by the countless horror videos on YouTube. According to the Internet even a professional beauty vlogger is capable of creating a true disaster, so I decided to leave the task to a professional. It was probably a good decision since I've never had bangs before. Let alone cut them.

The Puffer Jacket

When I was in middle school, my mother got me a huge puffer jacket. Just the thought of wearing it got me so nervous that I stayed up all night before going to school, and eventually, we had to return the damn thing. Now remembering that incident makes me laugh. Talk about first world problems! However, it’s crazy to think that many years later, I'm wearing a similar jacket voluntarily.

My Hair Routine

I’m constantly looking for ways to improve how I style and protect my hair. I’ve learned a lot by listening to professionals, doing my own research and of course, trying everything for myself. I've worked hair care into my everyday life, so it doesn't feel like a burden - quite the opposite!

The Embroidery Trend

So, you may have noticed that I’ve been posting here less than usual. I’ve had perhaps the busiest few weeks of my life writing my bachelor's thesis, and I felt the need to put all my focus towards that for a while. I couldn’t be happier to finally have more time for blogging and so many other things!

Konjac Sponge Review

Even if you are not a huge makeup lover, skincare is something all of us can benefit from. I've seen Konjac Sponges in stores and wondered if they are worth a try. I wear makeup almost daily, so I need something that removes it efficiently, but doesn’t leave the skin dry.

Statement Sleeves

Ruffles and exaggerated sleeves have been everywhere throughout spring and summer. I’m all for over-sized items, but it took some time for me to warm up to ruffles. Too much of them can easily look a little frumpy and it seemed like a trend that would be over in a second.

It turned out that I just hadn’t found the right item. This shirt has the perfect amount of puff and the stripy fabric makes it look like a more feminine version of a classic cotton shirt. It also seems that we’ll see more statement sleeves in the fall season, so they are not just a thing of the moment.

My 5 Favorite Makeup Products

It’s always nice to try new things, but most of us have favorite products that we come back to over and over again. In this post, I go through five makeup products that have become my holy grails. This time, I’m including only makeup and fragrances, but if you wish, I could do a list of skincare and hair products as well.

Sports Luxe

Whether you’re on a holiday or working throughout the summer, you probably want to wear something easier and lighter. One way to do it, is to take inspiration from sportswear. Luxe trainers, velvet sweatpants and satin bombers combine the best of both worlds; feeling comfy and looking chic. You can also mix and match your sportswear with something formal to create the look.

Metallic Bag

Huvilakatu is probably one the most iconic streets in Helsinki. Even though I live quite nearby, for some reason I’ve never realized to use this location. The street is full of cute little villas and it's definitely a must-see place for visitors. The weather was quite chilly as you probably can see from my outfit and we had to take cover from the rain a few times. I also had to protect my new camera lens (which I forgot to mention in the last post). So, this is my second set of pictures with the new lens and at least I think the difference is clear as day. You wouldn't believe that changing just the lens could make such difference, but it was definitely worth it.

Fake or Inspired?

Is there a difference between borrowing and copying? Is there even such a thing as original design? These were the questions I was asking when I saw this bag at Zara. Inspired, fake of whatever, I think it’s a stunning bag. I didn’t even dream about finding a bag that would work for my style so perfectly.

Casual Friday

Ah, Friday, the day of the week when you feel like making the least effort. It's the perfect day to wear a hoodie, a pair of trainers or whatever makes you comfortable. Thankfully, hoodies and sportswear are no longer just for teenagers and working out – at the moment, even those nineties buttoned sweatpants are becoming a perfectly acceptable choice.

I'm a Wizard

Well… not actually, but these glasses do make anyone look a bit like that famous boy from London. If you need to wear glasses every day, you’ll probably want to find that perfect pair that goes with every outfit and even more importantly, fits your face shape. Staring at the computer screen every day is just the worst with glasses that pinch your ears or constantly slide down your nose. I was lucky enough to find exactly what I was looking for.

Velvet and Patent

This cap was my first introduction to the velvet trend. During the winter, we have seen velvet on almost every piece of clothing and accessory from thigh-high boots to bombers and party dresses, so why not caps too! The material is very luxurious and distinctly 90’s, so when mixed with casual items it gives the outfit a boost. For a real statement, you can even dress in it from head to toe.

MAC Lipstick Haul

MAC has definitely become my go-to lipstick brand. They just seem to have the prettiest colours! As someone who has quite sensitive skin, I’ve noticed some drugstore lipsticks give me allergy. I’ve never had any problem with MAC, even though their lipsticks do have a fragrance. Compared to similar brands such as Inglot and Make up store, I don’t think they are anything special, but their colour selection really sets them apart.
