Sun is out and I am ready

Tags: , ,

… Well almost ready. I just need a new pair of prescription sunglasses! I’m practically blind as a bat, and since I can’t wear contact lenses a lot, my glasses are my best friends. Sadly I have only one pair of prescription sunglasses, and that pair is over 6 years old.. And my prescription has changed since then. Thankfully my cries were heard by Specspost, and I was offered a trial of 3 sunglasses, and after that I could get my favourite one with my prescription. Yay!


Olen melkein valmis kesään ja aurinkoon.. Multa puuttuu vain aurinkolasit vahvuuksilla! Olen “sokea kuin lepakko”, ja koska en voi käyttää piilareita vakituisesti, niin mun rillit on periaatteessa mun bestiksiä. Valitettavasti mulla ei ole kuin yhdet aurinkolasit vahvuuksilla, ja nekin on yli 6 vuotta vanhat.. Ja näkö on huonontunut sen jälkeen. Onneksi Specspost kuuli huutoni, ja he lähettivät mulle 3 paria kokeiluun, ja tämän jälkeen saan lemppariini sitten vahvuudet. Jee!

Black And Purple Vintage Chic Sunglasses

“Festival” Pink Geek Style Sunglasses

And the verdict? I don’t like the first ones on me, they are too small for my face. But the other two… Well, let’s just say that I wish that I could get TWO prescription pairs as I love both SO much! Decision needs to be made though, and my favourite is the second pair, as it is more usable than the hot pink pair. Do you agree? Did I choose the right pair? If you are in need of new sunnies, check out what Specspost have to offer!

Ps. Yes, new hairdo was needed, you’ll see more of it later ;)!


Ja mikäs on tulos? Noh, ekoista en tykkää yhtään, ne on aivan liian pienet mun päähän. Mutta kummastakin muusta parista tykkään ihan hirveästi! Toivoisin, että saisin kummatkin vahvuuksilla, mutta päätös on tehtävä… Ja valitsen kakkos-lasit, koska ne on kyllä käytännöllisemmät kuin nuo neon pinkit. Oletteko samaa mieltä, oliko oikea valinta? Jos tarvitsette uusia aurinkolaseja, niin tsekatkaa Specspost, he toimittavat myös Suomeen halvoilla hinnoilla!

Ps. Joo, uusi tukka oli tarpeen, ja sitä näkyy enemmän jatkossa ;).

** one pair of prescription sunglasses will be gifted for me for this review // saan tästä postauksesta yhdet aurinkolasit vahvuuksilla **


Are you a plus-size bride?

Tags: , , , ,

(Tämä on yhteistyö Lontoolaisen morsiuskaupan kanssa, joten jätin käännöksen tekemättä)

This is a subject that is not relevant to my own life at all. I’m a single girl, who rarely even dates to be honest.. But I know that there’s lots of plus-sized girls out there who are in long term relationships, or engaged, and looking for their perfect wedding dress. And I’m sure that some of these girls are my readers, and that’s why I’m doing this introductory post.

Bijou Bridal Wear is a family business that sells stunning plus-sized bridal wear. They have a boutique in Mitcham, London, and you can make an appointment to visit in here. The size range of their dresses is 12-34, and I love what they have to say about ‘Bijou Brides’ – “Our dresses are carefully selected based on their beautiful designs and with you in mind. Our dresses are not about what you ‘should’ wear to hide but rather what you should wear to shine.”

They are having an open weekend on 7-8 June, where everything is 15% off! And here are just a few of their gorgeous dresses..

Lifestyle: My dream bedroom

Tags: , , ,

Hello my lovelies,

Do you ever lay on your bed and look around you and wonder how would you live and decorate if you had the space and the money? I know I do, quite often actually!

I used to live alone for 8 years before I moved to London. This was of course back in Finland, where living with flatmates isn’t very common. I lived mostly in small studio flats, but all the decoration choices were my own. Of course for most of that time I was a student, and I couldn’t afford many nice things.. But some I did. And I left those nice black and white bookshelves, DVD towers and chest of drawers with my parents when I moved to London. Please don’t think that this post is about complaining, it’s not, I’m just telling how it was for me there. Here in London.. Well, I like my life here, and I’ve had great flatmates, but laying in my bed in this small room makes me dream about how things could be. And if I can’t have a whole flat, maybe I can just dream about what kind of bedroom I’d have if I had the space and the money :)?

When it comes to my fashion, I love block colours and adding some pattern in. Or monochrome with pops of bright colour. I’d love to paint my bedroom white, with an accent wall of black with white pattern, or an accent wall of bright colour (ah, would love lime green). I’d get a walk-in wardrobe with loads of racks for clothes and places for shoes too. Then I would buy all the shoes from Evans (Have you seen the new AW13 shoes there? Amaze!) and all the clothes from Junarose (Yes, I could easily take everything!) and fill the place with them. I’d have black and white across all the furniture and linen, and white blinds on the windows, like you can see here at Hillarys (second image). And a few photoframes on the wall and my dresser. I’d keep it stylish and roomy, which would be a total opposite of my cluttery room with too much stuff in it. But hey, a girl can always dream, right? ;)

Below are a few photos of amazing bedrooms and stunning walk-in wardrobe that have similar ideas. (Clicking them will take you to the source where I found them from.)
