Vintage Batwoman!

So, I was invited to a Halloween party, but did not really have time to think of a costume. I was browsing  on Pinterest and found this picture of Vera Ellen and decided that I want to wear a bat cape (because I didn't have the time or knowledge to make this awesome egg costume! I love it to pieces. I will make an egg costume one day.). Halloween isn't really celebrated in Finland, and as this was one of the few Halloween parties I have ever been invited to, I had to wear something. As I'm rather impatient, I just improvised and didn't take any measures or anything... But I don't recommend my way to anyone! :D



This is the most perfect red, ah.

Considering that I didn't really have any time to prepare my costume, I'm very satisfied with it!

This is how the cape looks like when I don't spread my arms. Could I somehow integrate it into my wardrobe? The fabric cost me money, I don't want to only wear it once a year! :D

About to fly!


Hope you had a nice Halloween, whether you celebrated it or not!


Hi. How have you been? I hope you're well!

I still have camera problems, but I found out that my friend has a similar charger to mine, so at least I can check if my batteries work! I wish I could blog actively, because I really liked it, especially vintage and photography blogging. Needless to say, I haven't been that active in a few years... But these pauses always make it harder to come back! Sometimes I'm not sure what to write about: what do I want to share, and what if I don't write enough? A fresh start sounds rather appealing! Anyway, without a functioning camera there is not much point in blogging for me, photos are an important part of my blogging, I don't consider myself that talented a writer. Some people have a talent, they write intriguing texts that feel personal without actually revealing any personal information. I, on the other hand, often feel that I'm either giving nothing or telling too much...

I gotta say that I haven't been this happy for some time. What a feeling! I also got a job some time ago. Now I'm under some stress, but our Scotland trip is waiting around the corner. Have to get myself a pair of wellies, I don't want to walk around in wet shoes!

I'm listening to Summer Nights from Grease on repeat. I haven't even seen the movie yet! I always ask for music recommendations, they're welcome now as well. For the past two months I've mainly been listening to Viva la Vida by Coldplay, Summer Nights and Bailando... :--D


Scotland, Here We Come!

So! We just booked our tickets to Scotland. We're going to Stirling in November to see a friend, and will spend most of our time there, but we will also spend a couple of days in London. It's been four years since my last visit! (So, definitely more than the three years I declared it wouldn't take. :D) 

I do not know London like I know Paris, so tips are definitely needed! Although I do know some stores I'm gonna go check... And also, if you've been to Scotland it'd be nice to get some tips as well, what to see and stuff. I don't think we'll be going very far from Stirling, we're kind of on a budget, but anything on a 50 km radius should be fine. 

These are just random snaps from my last trip!

Our Paris trip was kind of hectic, so it's nice to be spending a week in Scotland, in no hurry to do anything. I feel real lucky to be going abroad for the fourth time this year! That never happens. Tenerife, Paris, Tallinn and now the UK. But I also feel bad about my carbon footprint. Luckily there are many other choices that I can make to reduce my overall carbon footprint. And I can't help think that those planes would fly whether I was on board or not, which probably isn't the smartest thought. But travelling is one of the best things you can do and I don't want to feel too bad about it, because I already think about this save-the-earth-stuff everyday. I'd like to know how you feel about flying and how do you tell yourself it's ok to travel? Do you think it's hypocritical to be aware of the problems of air travel and still do it? I think it's important to think about the effects of travelling on the environment! So I'd be happy to hear your thoughts. Now it's high time to go to bed. I wish to dream about the trip, anyway! Good night!


Minä tahtoisin tietää, miksi joka paikassa väitetään kantarellien kasvavan koivikossa tai kuivassa mäntymetsässä, kun kaikki löytämäni kantarellit ovat kasvaneet kuusten läheisyydessä?

Ei muuta.

Blog Crisis (and Paris photos!)

Hi! So I've been a lazy blogger. My camera doesn't really function, which makes everything difficult. Also, I don't know whether I should write in English or in Finnish, because I'm not sure I have readers anymore. :D It somehow seems that blogging is not so 'in' anymore, maybe everyone's on Instagram or something. I would have wanted to blog more actively, but currently I'm renewing my wardrobe and don't have a lot to wear. Not that I want that much, but for a couple of years most of my clothes didn't fit me or were somehow wrong for me stylewise. I actually thought that it would be fun to document the process of recreating my style and wardrobe. I want something classic, vintagesque and maybe even minimalistic. But would a new blog be in order then? Project Wardrobe or something... I haven't been very active on the photography front either, mainly because I don't have models! :D

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know this. I have no idea when I'll get a new camera, but there are some photos that I'm gonna post someday. We'll see what happens!

And then! Some photos from our Paris trip, because that's when the camera luckily still worked!

I did see some new places, but of course we had to go to some of my favourite places as well. Let's start with a familiar one: this was the view from the hallway bathroom window.

And at night!
And the view from Laura's apartment at dusk.
It rained quite a lot, but luckily not when we went to Montmartre.
The National Museum of Natural History was intriguing!
You just gotta take a selfie at Versailles...
Thanks to Matias, Sanni and both of the Lauras for a lovely Paris trip!

Mulla ja kaverillani Elinalla olis Bonuskirppiksellä pöytä 31, josta löytyy ehjiä ja kivoja vaatteita. Itse vein mm. pari vintagemekkoa, IvanaHelsingin vaatteita sekä Minna Parikan talvisaappaat ja paljon muuta (esim. naamiaiskaupasta ostettu "Marilyn-mekko" hahahaha). Laitan tähän muutaman kuvan sinne viemistäni vaatteista. Hinnat lähtevät kymmenestä sentistä ylöspäin, hophop ostamaan, sunnuntaihin asti aikaa!

Pinkki hame.
Ivana Helsingin käyttämätön villahame.
Minna Parikan saappaat.

Vivettan mekko. Vivettan vaatteiden hinnathat ovat nykyään pilvissä, että tämäkin lähtee aika edulliseen hintaan niihin verrattuna! Muutaman kerran käytetty.

Menkää ja ostakaa, minä en halua näitä vaatteita enää vaikka kivoja ovatkin, mutta kun ovat vääränkokoisia nykyään. :)
