As some of you may have noticed already, I'm taking a bit of a hiatus from blogging. I'm working through some stress. I have come to find that I have a lack of concentration for everyday things like meeting up with friends or hanging out with my family, extending to things like blogging as well. My life just seems to be filled with a general feeling of restlessness and impending doom (gosh, that sounds so serious, but it's not something to worry about).

It's like I'm being pulled in all directions by people's expectations for me and I'm just trying to stay in one piece. Blogging has become a duty for me and there's far too much going on lately to keep up with it. Heck, there's sometimes too much going to even look presentable. So considering that this is a fashion-ish blog it would be a bit of a fail on my part to keep going on without the outfits. I'm trying my best to get out of this slightly gloomy and unpleasant place and I feel that dropping some of my duties and actually giving myself a proper holiday might do more good than harm.

I wouldn't really imagine being able to actually talk to many people about all of this, but through blogging I have been introduced to the most lovely people, so I couldn't just quit without a proper goodbye.

On a brighter note, I finally have my official acceptance for uni and will be making the big move to Scotland in September. Maybe then I can take the direction of this blog somewhere else than fashion and rather concentrate on student life, when I've worked through this little crises thingy.

Luckily I have my stunning, understanding, supportive and all 'round lovely man to help me through.

 lots of love,

wannabe rocker

I have to start this one with an apology (AGAIN), for being absent for the past week or so. BUT (AGAIN) I have very good reasons (at least in my opinion :P). I've been working extra shifts to make up for the days I'm going to be off for my graduation festivities (starting tomorrow with rehearsals for Saturday's party and ending in a lovely little hangover day on Sunday).
To make up for it, I have a bunch of GOORGEOUS outfits I can't wait to show you!

One of my classic "oh god, I just wanna be in a rock n' roll band...please"-looks. My very much loved rolling stones tee, leather pants, tartan scarf, lovely leather shoes and bag and my favourite summer jacket.

Stay tuned for more. Pam-pam-PAAA!

Summertime and the livin' is easy

Jogging after work yesterday it definitely felt like summer, the sweat was running down my back and my eyes were blinded by the sun. But dammit, it felt good :) Today is my recovery day, and what better to do with it than shop? I'm dragging the old mother shoe shopping with me, as I've noticed that my collection of summer shoes is sadly dwindling in numbers due to various tragic accidents they've faced...and I'm in danger of being shoe less this summer if something isn't done about it- soon!

Ushering in the summer with pale lilacs :) top from twentytwenty, shoes h&m as well as the cardi, jeans from topshop and the satchel is vintage.

Is it summer where you are?

I want Candy

First mr. Franco posed as a fabulous drag queen for Candy magazine (dubbed the world's first trans-magazine) a year or two ago and now Tilda's edition has come out and she looks absolutely fabulous! It's no secret that I absolutely love androgyny (Hello, Grace Jones!), so needless to say that I think that this is absolutely brilliant! Maybe I should get my hands on a copy...

What do you think?


He's the one

I just HAD to show this off. H went shopping and found this adorable, bright, colour-blocked spring outfit ALL BY HIMSELF. This from the boy who wore exclusively PUMA clothes 2 years ago (seriously, shirt, jeans, sweater and shoes...all puma) and didn't even know his size till last year. This stylish man is mine and imma hold on to him :D
I am in LOVE with his cute T-shirt.

And shoes. Gotta love the shoes (a definite upgrade from his previous ones!)

p.s. all his friends found this outfit quite hilarious!

Just the basics

Another quick outfit post of something I wore a while back. Nothing groundbreaking whatsoever, but an outfit everyone should own! Just your basic jeans and tee with a nice cropped jacket for a rocker feel. These are my usual building blocks for other outfits, but worn together they are just classic: so comfy...and a confidence boost on one of those pesky fat-days :) 

H's incredibly photogenic (AND LOUD) dog :)

And the magic of the outfit is in all those little details: shoes, belt and jewellery that bring it all together!

It's SO hard to get a decent pic of most dogs...not this one, it just sits there majestically and poses until he sees you're finished. Model material?


p.s. I just had the BEST salad ever: goat's cheese and rucola with a raspberry dressing. I want more!

Such a perfect day, I'm so glad I spent it with you

I got a bit camera happy the other day, and these are the results. For a bit of background info: my bf has the most awesome rooftop terrace with a passage onto the actual roof of the 6 story building, and that's where we love to spend the summery days! It wasn't really warm enough to hang out there, but we brought up blankets, pillows and magazines and had a fake summer picnic. 

Homemade blueberry pancakes

Cosmos for me, Donald Duck for him :)

I can't wait until it warms up and we can actually hang out there more!

Love and kisses,

High School does end

Results in today and I'm most definitely graduating and I couldn't be happier :) While I really enjoyed the courses at my school and most of the teachers as well, I can't say that I'll really miss a lot of people from my graduating class. Just the ones I came into HS already knowing. It is a damn liberating feeling knowing that I don't have to see some faces ever again!

 Even went shopping for a traditional Finnish graduation hat (or whatever you call those) and (of course) they only had a size too small and a size too big. I went with the big one, assuming that I could make up for the loose space with HUGE hair. Also I just had to celebrate my results with some nocciola gelato straight from Italy, along with a few trashy mags.

For the graduation ceremony in June, I plan to do my hair a little like this:

Can't wait to put one of these bad boys on my head and party like there's no tomorrow!

It's always the darkest before the dawn

I'm sitting around with henna in my hair (for up to six hours...eeek) hoping it'll turn out something like this for my graduation:

Passing the time listening to the goddess pictured above. Fingers crossed my hair will have that vibrant hue tomorrow!

I'll be the wind, the rain and the sunset

A relaxed outfit for my day off: knit sweater, jeggings and simple strappy heels. Voila! Also, I found my graduation dress today and it's gorgeous. I don't have pics (I'm saving those for the occasion), but I can tell you that it's floaty and floral, but the accessories will give it a bit of an edge...and of course I'll have to wear what's become my trademark: lipstick (super easy way to look polished, btw). 

This song is dedicated to Cicatrix, Love you <3

The gorgeously stylish Esther (who also happens to be the first person I made friends with blogging) passed the Liebster blog award to me. And trust me, her blog is worth checking out. She has the sassiest style and the funnest texts. You won't regret it!

The award is appointed towards bloggers who inspire you and have less than 200 followers. Apparently  the word 'LIEBSTER' means 'beloved, 'sweetheart' or 'favourite'.


  • Link back to the person who gave you the award
  • Post the award on your blog
  • Pass it to five other bloggers you appreciate
  • Leave a comment on their blogs informing them about the award

My choices:

LOTS OF KISSES from a happy, but tired Ninja! (Work is killing me, but I promise an outfit post SOON)

A man in a dress

Just wanted to share this quickly with you lot :) Check out one of my fave models Andrej Pejic modelling bridal wear so well it makes me want to go out and get some! Thoughts?

Pure beauty, both the man and the dress.

Two years of coupled up bliss

It's my 2 year anniversary with H, but unfortunately we can't spend much of it together as we're both working, so I put together a little somethin somethin here :)
There is no big love story about how we met, we spent about 1 and a half years in the same class, quite happily indifferent to each other, when I started to really like this silly, skinny, cute boy :) One thing lead to another and one of my best friends persuaded me to ask him out, the wimp that I was I asked him out by text :P We actually had our first date exactly two years ago at the cinema, where we went to see the movie about John Lennon "Nowhere Boy", as we both LOVE the Beatles. And afterwards we walked around for a bit and then had chicken wraps at maccy d's. Very PG, I didn't even get a kiss (later he told me that was because he didn't want to scare me off my moving too quickly! haha :). LOOOONG story short, we've been attached by the hip ever since.
Our first ever kissy photo, possibly the first photo of the two of us together :) From a school trip to Sicily. We had spent the previous summer dating sort of under the radar (not exactly in secret, but a little hush hush) so us "coming out"  was a huge surprise for some people.

Still in Sicily. Story behind the pic: on this particular outing my dear H got quite a bit tipsy at a restaurant over the lunch break and as we met up again I had to give him sunnies, water and chewing gum, walk with arms linked so he'd walk straight and avoid the teachers at all costs :P This left me a bit bummed out, but as a surprise photo reveals, it's impossible to stay mad at that cutie!

We went to our ball together (you guys HAVE to see a better piccie of my dress as well) and we had the best time :)

When a man brings you roses and chocolate for no other reason than that he missed you, he's a definite keeper :)

Thinking about the future right now seems quite daunting, as in just four and a half months we have to start our year-long long distance relationship as he goes to complete his mandatory military service and I start my studies in Scotland. But we always manage to pull-through :) Here's hoping that we're in the tiny percentage of High School relationships that actually makes it :P (not that I really doubt it for a second!).
