Tämä postaus on yhteistyössä Peili Hiussalin ja @jennistubbe.beauty kanssa

Moimoi!

Tästä aiheesta piti oikeestaan tulla postaus jo viime sunnuntaina, mutta Pikkulaskiainen ja vauhdikas  viikonloppu varmistivat astetta heikomman olotilan ja sen, että en vahingossa jaksaisi kirjoittaa blogiin postausta..:D läppä läppä!

Onkohan tää jo kolmas vai neljäs kerta, kun oon käynyt kampaajalla Peili Hiussalissa Jennin luona. Enkä muuten varmana tule koskaan vaihtamaan kampaajaa, Jenni on vaan kaikinpuolin paras, hauskin ja luotettavin kampaaja johon oon koskaan törmännyt! Edellisestä kerrasta kun oon käynyt on muuten 5 kuukautta.. ja sen kyllä huomaa alla olevasta ensimmäisestä kuvasta, kuivasta tukasta ja kamalasta juurikasvusta :D! well, the situation could be worse.

En ole moneen vuoteen tehnyt mun hiuksille mitään radikaalia muutosta, koska joskus aikoinaan vanhalla kampaajallani, jonka luona kävin tasan yhden kerran, päätin blondata tukan kokonaan ja siitä seurasi oranssi katastrofi. Tietenkin kampaajalla esitin, että olin ihan tyytyväinen lopputulokseen, mutta kotiin päästyäni itkin kirjaimellisesti silmät päästä. 😀

Olen jatkossa päättänyt laittaa hiuksiini vain raitoja. Raidottamalla hiuksia oon säilyttänyt kuitenkin mun hiusten oman luonnonvärin, mutta pehmeet ja vaaleet raidat tuo kasvoihin omanlaisen ja kauniin lookin. Raidottamiseen jää koukkuun! Tällä kertaa halusin kuitenkin vaihteeks jotakin muutakin kun pelkkiä vaaleita raitoja. Ajoitus oli täydellinen, sillä Peiliin on just tullut uusia ja erilaisia Wella Opal Essence- pastellin sävyisiä värejä.

Ihana Jenni omassa elementissään <3

Vaalennuksen jälkeen käytettiin uutta Wellan Opal Essence Illumina Color väriä. Sävytettiin hiukset Silver Maue ja Platinum Lily-nimisillä väreillä. Haluttiin siis lopputulokseksi sen, että väri ei vivahda liikaa violettiin, mutta kylmä sävy olis hiuksessa selkeesti mukana. Lopputulos oli tämän tekniikan jälkeen aivan fantastinen ja ihastuttava. Valittiin siis just sopivat värit mun hiuksiin!

Tottakai koko prosessissa oli mukana myös Olaplex- olaplexista voit lukea enemmän mun aikasemmasta postauksesta Tästä!

Oon niiiiiin ihastunut tähän tukkaan!! Täytyy tärkeänä asiana myös muistaa se, että kampaajalla käynnin jälkeinen ja jatkuva kotihoito on myös super important. Itse käytän erilaisia sävyttäviä hiusmaskeja (mm. Maria Nilan sävyttävä maski. Saatavilla esimerkiksi Peili Hiussalista.) ja joskus myös hopeashampoota muutamien viikon välein. Koska kiharran hiukset ainakin pari kertaa viikon aikana, oon myös oppinut käyttämään enemmän lämpösuojaa. Hiukset on sen jälkeen selkeesti  pysynyt paremmassa kunnossa kun aikasemmin.

Mitkä ovat sun must-hiustuotteet, jota käytät?

Kyllä se vaan on elämässä niin, että hyvää kannattaa odottaa. ISO KIIIITOS, taas kerran, Peili Hiussali ja Jenni! Ensi kertaan <3

We’re only in the middle of January and I’m already so sick of cold weather. And I sure know I’m not the only one. I’m so happy that we only have about a month-few months left of winter and spring is actually closer than we think. I’m constantly freezing my ass off outside and feeling so sick all the time… Ordering food from Wolt because I am too tired or unmotivated to even cook myself. The only time I am actually enjoying winter is during the daytime when there is light outside and I go to long walks with warm clothes wrapped on. I know I should be happy for having such a beautiful season at all, but you know.. we get tired from the cold and dark, and we get tired of it pretty fast. I decided to list down some effective activities you can do to keep your mind and soul positive although it might be depressing and dark outside. I added some throwback photos from summertime to boost your Thursday evening. Spring and summer are not that far away.  🙂

1. Book a trip to anywhere. – first and probably the best tip for winter. No, it doesn’t have to be Bali or Thailand or a super expensive luxury trip to a warm place (still wouldn’t mind going for a Bali yoga retreat trip right now..). It could also be a small 2-day vacation to somewhere in Europe, Italy or Paris for example. And believe me when I say- if you take the time to search for cheap flights- most likely you will find them. Sounds so super cheesy but traveling is something you pay for that actually pays back and makes you richer.  Getting to know different countries and cultures, in my opinion, is just so eye-opening and wonderful.

 

 

2. Make a vision board– this very important one is in my this years to do list as well. I have been thinking about doing a vision board for a pretty long time now but I STILL haven’t bought a printer and the necessary things to do it. By the way, if you want to learn more about vision boards, what they are and why you should do them to make your dreams come true- I recommend watching one of Cornelia Grimsmo’s video here. (This pic I posted is from Katerina’s wall with her own photos)

Another great tip inspired by Cornelia’s video is to educate yourself watching Netflix documentaries or educating youtube videos, depending on your interests or fields. I love to watch self-improvement and creative videos. Also please share some recommendations if you know any worth watching documentaries or good youtubers!

3. Eat good food. ”But healthy and plant-based food doesn’t make me feel good”- said no one ever. Food is the main thing in life that gives us energy. But what kind of energy, you decide. I freaking love junk food and that’s why I allow myself to eat it since I never prohibit anything from myself, but I balance it with healthy food as well. And I really can feel the difference between the feeling of after eating either option. And believe me you do feel much more energized after eating your greens.

4. Be active and go to places – I know I should move my ass and work out and I know I don’t, but I still do it. I don’t even know how have I managed to survive this school semester without actually working out properly, but the problem is I haven’t yet figured out what kind of exercising my body actually needs.  The main things that have been holding me together for the past months have basically been yoga and coffee.

I feel that the older I get, the more I actually believe in cheesy quotes and sayings. You know, there was a time when at least I used to insert zen instagram captions to seem cool but didn’t really think trough if I truly believed in what I wrote or lived by it. As I get older, I really want to be responsible of what I write down, what I talk about and what I believe in. I want it  to be raw and true. Because we live trough our every day thoughts that create our reality that we have to live in for the rest of our lives. This is also a reason why I have been quite quiet on my blog during last year, I’ve been processing a major shift and I have been learning to live in the moment more than ever. And guess what, its a new year and it’s a good time to set new intentions for the upcoming months. Manifesting things into you life is EVERYTHING. You can manifest anything you want, it could be a thought or it could even be something materialistic you dream about. I have been doing it for the past 2 years and my life has changed a lot. I’ve got to travel to my dream destinatons,  I am much more positive as a person, I attract like-minded people into my life and I just overall feel better than ever with myself. There is a saying ”the best is yet to come” and that is so fucking true if you just gave a thought to your own thoughts. Why would you want to gossip and talk shit about other people while you are actually the one giving up all your energy while you could use it into something much greater.

I have listed down 5 of my own intentions for this year:

Pictures by: Elias Ryynänen

1. Write to my blog as a diary. One day as I wrote down my thoughts to my private diary, I thought that wtf, I have a blog and I could use it more wisely and share my thoughts with everyone else as well. Of course, there will always be things we all have that we can’t talk publicly about, but you get the point.

2. Take care of my body. I started eating more plant-based food at the beginning of October and it has been one of the best decisions I have made. And it was not as hard as I thought. I still do eat fish and cheese, because my body accepts that kind of food. Do something for 21 days straight, and I almost guarantee it will be a habit of yours for the rest of your life. Taking care of my body means doing things and eating food that makes me feel good. It is absolutely individual for everyone, and I don’t think that everyone should turn vegans or start working out every day, but if you don’t feel good, you have the power to make the difference. Do what makes YOU feel good. Your body is your temple, so take care of it.

3. Take care of my mind. Learn, read books, grow, evolve. Some of my friends still laugh and make fun of me when I tell them that I meditate, or if I talk about spirituality or Astrology. I strongly believe in astrology and it’s something I am going to focus on learning more about this year. Spiritual rituals also help you to let go of negative thoughts disturbing our lives. I use to laugh about this topic too (because everyone else did as well) but honestly as soon as I got into spirituality on a deeper level I think my third eye is opening, lol.

4. Learn to use my full potential. This is something I have been struggling with for such a long time. Always having doubts about myself, not reacting to this or that opportunity and regretting it later on, not trusting my intuition on something particular. Although I am always the risk taker and super spontaneous about life, I feel like that sometimes that can lead me off the road that I am taking. We all know what to do to get to a particular point. So we might as well start using our full potential. It may take time, but staying consistent and really believing in what you do helps a lot.

5. Consume less & start thinking about our planet. This is a topic I have recently talked about with many of my friends. I have almost quit shopping. Yep, still a fashion blogger but I will from now on only buy clothing from stores I know use their resources wisely. Recycling and thrift shopping will be a huge trend this year.

So why should we all set intentions? Because I believe in a greater cause of humanity. We are way more greater than the system we live in.  We are capable of everything we fucking want up to living our dream life and having our dream house in Marbella, but the little decisions we choose to do actually determine our path. I remember when a few years ago I dreamed of what I have now. And I can imagine the things I dream about now, having and reaching those things in my life in the next 2 years.

Last weekend we had a quick two day visit to Tallinn (after 3 months) and man I really missed my hometown. We actually went there to attend to  Estonian Business School 30th birthday gala with our student council from Helsinki campus and we also had time to chill a while. We visited the new T1 Mall Of Tallinn, which was opened about a month ago. Also, they recently opened T1 Taste Of Tallinn at the fourth floor in the mall, which includes a lot of different and awesome and very instagrammable (wink wink you instagrammers) restaurants. I got to eat at one of them and honestly the first restaurant we went to was so good that I already crave to go bak to Estonia just for the Pelm Restaurant. And I need to visit all the other restaurants as well.. they are still  opening many new restaurants at the fourth floor . To be honest, in my opinion Finland (at least Helsinki) doesn’t have that good choices of restaurants. (Not that I have been to all of them, but to compare the one’s I’ve been to to restaurants in Tallinn) We went to a Russian restaurant with a large menu and since I don’t eat meat, from Susann’s recommendation I chose salmon filled dumplings, some grilled vegetables and giant shrimps with a super good sauce with them. And oh my yummmm how good it was, no joke. I might post a fun video to my instagram stories that Susann took of me while trying to handle the giant shrimps I ate, lol.

T1 Taste Of Tallinn is actually right now having a campaign where you can win 300€ gift card to the whole mall!  To participate in the competition, visit one of the T1 Taste Of Tallinn restaurants, take a picture of your food, post it to instagram and tag #tasteoftallinn. That’s it! The winner is announced on 14.1.2019.

The best tea I have ever had!

But anyways, T1 of Tallinn is a big recommendation to all of my Finnish and Estonian followers. And if someone from somewhere else in the world is reading this post, go and see the mall yourself and enjoy different tastes from different countries, all inside one mall. T1 also has different shops from design and clothing to books shops and even a butterfly museum and a giant 4 floor trampoline center that I need to take my little brothers to one day, it would be a dream for them. 😀

T1 Mall Of Tallinn locates near Tallinn airport. You can take a tram from the center of Tallinn and it takes you right in front of the mall. The mall is so big, you can’t miss seeing it from the window.

Bon appetit and happy shopping!

GANT HOME SPRING/SUMMER 2019

Breakfast events are always the best ones because I freaking love to have a proper brekkie, and it’s for free while learning about a new product/collection. And since I usually just make an few avocado breads in the morning rush and grab a super expensive coffee on the go (its the worst habit I have right after procrastinating), it’s so nice to attend to morning events. Yes I love food. But anyways, Gant Home is releasing a new SS19 collection this February (at least in Finland). I luckily got to go and see the collection and I loved the fact that it was full of spring & summer  and pastel, bright COLORS. A lot of flowers, ocean breeze  and a fresh feeling.

COSTER COPENHAGEN SPRING/SUMMER 2019

#costercopenhagen #costerss19 #margaritalovescointreau

Dots/Villa Tremondo babes built and hosted the COOLEST jungle party and pre-christmas press day! The whole place was just like a tropical paradise with pineapples and coconuts everywhere. We also did a small runway-show where we showed everyone the goodies from the upcoming collection that will mostly be available in Dots Stores before June. I was wearing my ABSOLUTE favorites pieces!! I am a big fan of colours.

PRE-CHRISTMAS VIBING AT HEADBRANDS FINLAND SHOWROOM.

This event I enjoyed a lot because of the intimate and chill feeling as there is usually 20-30 persons attending in an event at the same time, but there were only about 10 of us in total. We drank some glögi-champagne, enjoyed snacks and listened to Mikko Vainio giving us some ”pikkujoulu” hair tips. We also got a nice goodiebag filled with GOLD-haircare products! Would you like to see curly hair-tutorial on my instagram stories? 😉

Scorpio energy flows in the air and life seems to be hectic for absolutely everyone.
It’s not only the fall to blame but I feel that late September-November is a perioid when we all go through an emotionally major transition(s). It’s not a bad thing, it’s actually necessary to feel different kind of feelings and let go of the past in order to focus more on the future. So let go of old poisonous habits and even people if you need to, or if you can. As we constantly grow, it is not wrong to cut people out of our lives. In my experience, I’ve had to do it many times.. toxic people just don’t fit around me. We individually feel different kind of feelings every day so we should just accept them, since there are no such things as “wrong feelings or thoughts”, even if they are not positive all of the time. So show some mercy and trust yourself! You can handle it even if it sometimes seems or feels impossible

During this season everything might feel intense, strong, mysterious and even dark. Even the days get darker and shorter at the same time. On the other hand, since the scorpio energy is in the air, we might also feel the positive things in life a hundred times stronger, and those moments are just precious. At least It’s something that I feel. It is all already balanced out for us. We just need to realize and rely on the power and energy of the universe. You can’t control life or things happening to us all of the time, sister.

Living one day at a time is how I’m going to get through this fall. And good food and lots of coffee, of course. And as we drink a lot of coffee, we can’t forget to stay extra hydrated at the same time. Meditation is also something that helps us with our inner tranquility. If you’ve never tried, please do so, it might change your everyday life!! If you don’t know how, just start with an app called “simple habit” which I’ve recommended to a bunch of my friends. It has a lot of free guided features to get you started with meditating.

Please let me know what kind of different feelings you have been dealing with this November or some tips to survive this intense season! I’m sure I’m not struggling alone. And you aren’t either.  🙂  I would love to hear about your thoughts!

Remember to trust the process 

Are the words that I every day live by.  This fall has so far been a major life-changing period for me. Luckily everything has turned out just fine.  Yeah so, I got into a international business university where I am now  going to focus on marketing and communications, I’ve met so many new people and made a lot of new amazing like-minded friends, moved to Helsinki with my two new roommates, got a new job. All these things are something I am super excited, grateful and happy for.. Changes have always been something in I really look forward to. Don’t get me wrong, it’s never just that simple and easy.  Whatever you see on social media is only a small part of someones life. You don’t that often get to see the ‘boring part’ or the hard work and patience behind the surface. 🙂

Luckily I love being busy, organized and getting stuff done. It’s very helpful haha.

As I was travelling almost the whole summer, there is nothing better than settling down for a while. I’m so so in love with fall. Nicely smelling candles, mellow mornings and cozy sweaters sound so much better than summer or heat right now. Who is with me..?

I am also flying to Copenhagen for the first time this friday because of my new job! So excited to go and see the city. I will promise to keep you updated for what we will be doing there!!

Welcome to my favorite place on earth. Compared to last year, this time the experience was quite different. We packed our backpacks which included a water bottle, a blanket, some tuna fish and a piece of bread. We bought ferry tickets from Patra to Sami, Kefalonia (round trip costs about 34€/person) and hit the road by foot. We didn’t have a lot of money with us and all we knew is that we have one destination we need to get to- Myrtos beach. We basically hitch hiked 2 days in a row and met amazing people that helped us. Something I’ve learned from last years trip is that being spontaneous and not worrying too much is the best thing you can actually do.

So we arrived to Sami, ate some 2.5€ gyros and started to hitch hike. We made it to Myrtos beach (about 12km from the harbour city Sami)  with 2 different cars. As I probably mentioned in my earlier post, it’s totally safe to hitch hike in Greece. I’m not sure if I would do it alone tho. But super safe with friends. The other car that picked us up was a brand new big ass Mercedes Benz mini bus and the driver was a 19 year old local who was kind enough to help us to get to Myrtos. He was super funny because he wasn’t that good at speaking english haha.. we still make fun about him because he said ”look” after his every sentence in a really funny accent. He also offered to take us to a big big party on the other side of the island that was supposed to happen the next night but we skipped that party because we had company joining us in Kefalonia the next day. No regrets tho, because something wonderful happened the next day….

Arriving to Myrtos beach, this was the view waiting for us

Aaahhh. I couldn’t believe I was back at my happy place where I left my heart a year ago. Turquoise blue sea, the most incredible waves I’ve ever seen and beautiful rocks at the beach. We had already earlier made the decision to sleep at the beach on the sand. Little did we know that it will be freezing cold at night.. we pretty much didn’t sleep at all because it was so cold. I had about 50 mosquito bites in the morning. I’m not even kidding! It was horrible haha.. but, we stayed positive and made jokes about that night. When the sun came up, the warmth felt like heaven. So we had about 4 hour long nap at the beach in the morning because we were just frustrated from the night..

We packed our bags and continued our journey back to Sami and guess what.. ofcourse a big black mini bus picks us up once again hahah. Might sound creepy but the people were really friendly. We met up with our friends Alexandros and Nicolas from last years trip to Lefkada island. The boys told us that they know a great beach in Kefalonia called Antisamos, where we could sleep on the next night. So, we continued with our hitch hiking and surprise surprise… once again a small van stopped to pick us up on our way to Antisamos beach. It turned out that the guy that picked us up was a worker from the Antisamos beach club. Thanks to that, we actually managed to get ourselves a huuuuge upgrade from sleeping on the sand to sleeping on those beautiful princess-vibes cozy looking beach beds with white curtains. We almost cried of happiness that day..

We stayed up pretty late just talking about life, catching up and enjoying the moment. Funny how the power of the universe can lead you to the exact place that you need to be. By the end of this trip I felt another level of gratitude inside me.

The next morning we got up at 6am and hit the ferry back to Patras in the morning because my plane left back to Helsinki the day after that.
