Scrub it up!

bliss sugar scrub

Time to scrub the dry winter skin away and welcome the possibility of wearing bikinis again.
Yesss please!



Parka / Filippa K
It's that time of the year again. Mandatory parkas are filling the streets. Though, they are functional and warm -so why not. Who cares if everyone looks alike - at least we're all warm.




Today I'm choosing a casual dress from Zara for the first (of many to come) Christmas dinner with family.

Ensimmäinen jouludinneri vietetään tänään illalla ja casual-mekkokokoelmasta valikoitui päälle tällainen kolttu. Tajusin muuten, että oon ihan unohtanut kirjotella suomeksi näitä mun lorinoita. Oh well, ehkäpä koitan taas tsempata.



I've felt a change in materials (and my liking) recently. The flowy, sheer, light silks are moving away and the shiny ones are coming back. Like seen in Louis Vuitton SS13 show and here below on Taylor Swift. Thumbs up for that and the welcomed change.

Detail of the day

This week my fashion crush is inspired by Gossip girl... more particularly by Sofia Black-D’Elia as Sage and her layer of necklaces.

Hers look like Monica Vinader but equally beautiful ones are available by Misst... Remember my earrings?

Jewelry by Mulberry, Massimo Dutti and Ted Baker

Champagne please

This winter I'm more into the neutral palette such as the sparkly nudes and different shades of champagne. Even though the little black dress is always a sophisticated choice for Little Christmas Parties, it's more fun to choose something different.

Obsession of the day

I'm pretty obsessed with Kristen Stewart's make up and hair right now. This is exactly what I would like to have right now (if I were to go to a ... let's say... a movie premiere ;) which is not happening btw, so I think any kind of event would do)... The metallic smoky eye and the side swept hair do. Yes, please.

ps. I'm having some issues with my google account - until it allows me to update photos (without me losing my nerves) I'll have to settle for these borrowed web pics, unfortunately. 



Super chic inspiration
All grey with black heels and golden accessories. Love the make up as well!




New in: earrings by Misst

Misst earrings, from Nómad - a shop where from I would love to buy loads of other lovely things as well...

La vie est belle

The perfume is a gift from my boyfriend, bracelet (that I also use as a headband from Urban a*)

Over the weekend...

This Fall I really like...

...the different hues of blue.
The Givenchy boots...
...and the pointed patent leather ankle boots.
I also really like pants. Pants-not jeans. And since I've been pant-less for almost a decade, it's about time.


#Greensmoothie = Ugly Healthy Drink


I love my greensmoothies but most of my friends go 'ugh' when they see my green glass of health. However, the taste is not at all bad and mostly it's so good for you that you forget about the slightly unappealing (okay, very much unappealing) look.

But maybe now that the greensmoothies are featured even in Vogue I might be able to persuade you -my friends- to taste them. Come on! They have to be good, even Gisele Bundchen swears by them. Yeah, the supergreen powders make you go 'what the ****?!' but they don't really taste at all... and it's so good for you!

So, here's one recipe, also featured in Vogue.
- 1 tsp spirulina or chlorella
- 1 tbs raw coconut oil
- 1 cup spinach and kale
- 1/2 a cucumber
- avocado or banana
- any of these: pear/apple/kiwi
- 2 cups water
- juice of half a lemon

BOTTOMS UP! ENJOY... and have a great weekend :)


Flowers and stuff...

When it's grey and cold it's better to watch pretty pictures than outside the window...



Detail of the day

My evening clutch - love the chain details and the panther heads


My color choice for this Fall

Love, love, love cobalt blue and indigo blue. Need more of it !
