TODAYS´ LOOK // LET IT SNOW





Good morning!
It´s a new week. This year has gone by so fast! If you asked me how was my summer, I wouldn´t know. I have no idea what I did, haha! Feels like there never were a summer this year.
And now there is snow in the ground and it´s like only one and a half months until next year! That is crazy! But I´m happy, wasn´t the best year of my life, so I´m looking forward for the next one :-) Just the fact that I´m getting older sucks. I wanna stay young foreveeeeer! Buu for ageing!!!!

Well I have to run nor, It is a work day and need to take Felix out before heading there.

Buy!

P.S. I still don´t feel any better after quitting smoking. I think I was set up...

TODAYS´ LOOK // PONCHO






I don´t know if that even really is a poncho, but it looks like it :-) I love it! It´s so warm and comfortable and also pretty. My boyfriend hated it, of course, he doesn´t like any bold prints or colors. He didn´t actually say anything, but it was only because I already bought it and there was nothing he could do about it, haha!

I still feel kinda weird, after the night shifts, I always do and it doesn´t matter how I do the sleeping after it, nothing works. Yesterday I was supposed to go to Turku, but everything hurt and I felt horrible, I thought I was gonna get sick, but seems like it was just because I was up all night. I´m knocking wood now, so I won´t get sick, heh! 

Hope you are having a wonderful Friday!

DARK LIPS




Hello guys!

Yesterday we went to a friends 30th birthday party. It was nice, that all of them spoke Finnish when I was near.
Almost all of them speak Swedish as a first language and I'm so bad at it (I used to be fluent, but when I learned Spanish while in CR, I forgot all my Swedish and since then it has been super hard for me to relearn it), so it was heart warming for them to make sure I understood everything.

It was a great party, the birthday boy (man? Haha) got a gift card to jump from an airplane. That sounds pretty sweet!

Now I'm at work and to be honest, I don't feel that great. I didn't drink too much and I went home pretty early, but I'm just so tireeeed. Should not drink at all! Not worth it, once again.
 I always say that the next day, but do it again anyway, haha! Well gotta go now, break is over and it's time to do some serious work!

P.S. sorry about the typos. I'm tired and I can't think.

OUR KITCHEN // DINING AREA











Our kitcheeeeen!

 As I said, it is not nearly done, but getting closer minute by minute :-) and because there is two people living in our house, we have to compromise a lot, this table was the only one that we could agree on. If I lived alone, I probably wouldn't have picked that one, but I'm super happy about it after all. I remember us looking for it and with every other table I was like "hate it" and when I saw this one I was like "That's weird, I don't hate this one" haha!

 Btw I totally forgot to tell you that I quit smoking!
 It's been almost two weeks now without it (I use mints and gum still) and I would love to tell you that it has been great, that I don't miss it at all and I feel so much better. But no, it's like being in hell!
 I feel excatly the same, only difference is that I don't get to smoke. Also those mints and gums are making me gassy (oh yes, you are very welcome for that information, it's my pleasure).
But it's getting easier every day. And hopefully soon I won't even think about it anymore.

Next year would have been the tenth year of smoking for me and I don't wanna have that anniversary, so this time I really decided to be serious about quitting.

 That's all from today folk! Have a great weekend

 P.s I'm too lazy to tranlate this into Finnish, sorryyyyy

TODAYS` LOOK // PINK




This is how I looked like today, a messy bun and just a simple pink t-shirt with long sleeves and a pair of really comfy dark blue pants. 

As I told you earlier, we needed to take Felix to the doctor, because of his ball. Or more specific, the lack of them. Well the other one is there, but the second one decided not to come out. Last week the only ball seemed sensitive, so I was worried that something was wrong. It also had a small scratch in it. 

Luckily everything was fine and there is no hurry to take him to a surgery to remove them. The doctor said that we can leave the one good ball and just remove the one that didn`t come out if we want and I kinda want to do that, because I love that dog how he is and I´m afraid that it is going to change his personality, but we will see. The most important thing is that he is healthy and happy. 

I am a little sad tho, that I can´t take him to dog shows and all that, but even if he had the the other nut as well, he wouldn´t be successful I´m afraid. He is way too small and has a too long nose (like mommy, haha!) and too short hair. And his tail is pathetic, haha! It´s seriously so tiny! 

-------------------------

// Tälläinen oli tämän päivän asu, sotkuinen nuttura, yksinkertainen vaaleanpunainen pitkähihainen t-paita ja todella mukavat tumman siniset housut.

Kuten jo aiemmin kerroin, meidän piti viedä Felix lääkäriin hänen palliensa takia. Tai niiden puutteen enemmänkin. Yksi on tullut ulos, mutta toinen päätti olla laskeutumatta. Viime viikolla se ainoa palli tuntui jotenkin aristavan ja todella pelkäsin, että siellä on jotain pielessä. Myös pallissa oleva pieni haava sai mut huolestuneeksi.

Kaikki oli kuitenkin hyvin ja ei kuulemma ole mitään kiirettä poistaa sitä kivestä, joka jäi sisälle. Lääkäri sanoi, että voimme toki jättää sen yhden hyvän kiveksen ja poistaa vain sen, joka ei tullut ulos, jos näin haluamme ja tavallaan kyllä haluaisin tehdä niin, sillä rakastan tuota koiraa juuri sellaisena kuin se on ja pelkään, että sen luonne muuttuu jos kummatkin otetaan pois, mutta katsotaan nyt. Tärkeintä on tietenkin, että koira on onnellinen ja terve.

Se on kuitenkin hiukan surullista, koska olisin halunnut viedä Felixiä oikeisiin koiranäyttelyihin, mutta nyt se on sitten poissa laskuista. Toisaalta, vaikka sillä nyt olisikin ollut se toinen palli siellä, niin se on aivan liian pieni, sillä on liian pitkä nenä (niinkuin äidillä, haha!) ja liian lyhyt karva, joten valitettavasti se tuskin olisi pärjännyt muutenkaan. Ja sen häntä vasta onkin surullinen! Se on pikkuruinen!

BREAKFAST



Good morning!
 I´m having my breakfast while writing this :-)
It´s about seven o`clock. I don´t really have to have up this early, but I like to have a lot of time before I have to leave the apartment. I get so stressed if I´m in a hurry in the morning, it ruins my whole day.

Having super healthy breakfast, as you can see, haha! Toast and cream cheese. I just needed a break from the porridge and egg whites. 

Okay, I´m off to put some makeup on and then I have my test (to see if I´m smart enough for school, heh!)

--------------------------------------

Huomenta!

Täällä syödään aamupalaa ja kirjoitetaan samalla :-) Täytyy käyttää aika hyödyksi.
Kello on noin seitsemän nyt. Mun ei oikeasti tarvitsisi herätä näin aikaisin, mutta tykkään siitä, että on paljon aikaa ennen kuin tarvitsee astua kämpästä ulos. Saan ihan jäätävän stressin jos aamulla tulee kiire ja sitten onkin koko päivä pilalla, kun jää se ikävästi päälle. 

Niin kuin näkyy, vuorossa on super terveellinen aamianen, haha! Paahtoleipää ja sulatejuustoa. Ei vaan mene enää tattaripuuro ja munanvalkuaiset alas.

Okei, nyt täytyy mennä laittamaan hiukan meikkiä ja sitten onkin pääsykokeen vuoro!

TODAYS´ LOOK // GRAY





ALOE VERA




This is our impulse purchase from yesterday, an Aloe Vera plant! 
Before we took Felix to the doctor (I will tell about this later), we decided to do some shopping for our apartment. We did find six (!) curtains and some flower pots, but this was by far the coolest thing we found! I haven´t ever thought that you can have Aloe Vera as a houseplant! I like Aloe Vera, because of its name, wink wink, haha!

Our apartment is really getting together, this time we decided to put some effort and money into the decoration so it feels more like a home. We have both lived in some shit holes (together and before we met), so its about time to be happy how our place looks!

We still have a lot, I mean a LOT to do, but this is the furthest we have ever become when it comes to decoration. Usually we have just taken whatever anybody is giving as and ending up with an apartment where nothing goes together, haha! 

I will take some pictures from the kitchen to show you, it is not completely finished, still missing some pictures from the wall and some other little stuff, but I will take new pictures during the process :-) 


---------------------------------------

Eilinen heräteostos, Aloe Vera kasvi!
Meillä oli hiukan aikaa S:n töiden ja Felixin lääkärin (kerron tästä myöhemmin) välillä, joten päätimme käydä nopeasti ostamassa sisustustavaraa meidän kämppään.
Loppujen lopuksi löysimme kuudet (!) verhot ja kukkaruukkuja, mutta tämä kasvi oli epäilemättä siistein juttu mitä löysimme! En ole ikinä edes ajatellut, että Aloe Veraa voi pitää huonekasvina ja se on ilmeisesti mitä helppohoitoisin kasvi (verrattavissa kaktukseen), mikä on hyvä, sillä tapan aina jokaisen kasvin, minkä kotiini raahaan, joka kastelen sitä liikaa tai en ollenkaan.
Pidän Aloe Verasta etenkin sen nimen takia, hehe!

Asuntomme alkaa muutenkin pikkuhiljaa valmistua, tällä kertaa nimittäin päätimme laittaa oikeasti aikaa ja rahaa sisustukseen, sellaisiin asioihin, jotka kestävät vuosia ja muuttoja. Haluamme kämpän tuntuvan kodilta. Olemme molemmat asuneet aiemmin aikamoisissa murjuissa (erikseen ja yhdessä), joten on jo aikakin olla tyytyväinen omaan kotiin.

Meillä on edelleen paljon, ja tarkoitan PALJON, tekemistä, mutta olemme jo pidemmällä kuin koskaan ennen sisustuksen kanssa. Ennen olemme vain ottaneet kaiken, mitä sukulaisilta ja ystäviltä irtoaa ja mikään ei oikeastaan ole sopinut yhteen, haha!

Otan vielä jossain vaiheessa kuvia keittiöstä näytiksi, sekään ei ole vielä valmis, muutamia tauluja puuttuu seiniltä ja muuta pientä fiksausta, mutta otan kuvia sitä mukaan kun prosessi etenee :-)

STARZZZ











I haven't had time to post anything since Monday, because we needed to clear the old apartment this week. It's done now, but man it was a shitty job to do, haha! And I had a problem with my car, it didn't start anymore, so today, after a night at work, I needed to call a guy to pick it up and take to a car repair place, since it wasn't going to be our parking spot anymore. I was so damn tired when I finally got home. And still I didn't sleep that well, I woke up like three times and every time I woke up, Felix noticed it and started to lick my face, haha! Such a cute and annoying little thing <3
Now I am at work, having my "lunch" break and dreaming about sleeping in my bed, next to my man. Just have to suck it up and keep going for couple more hours and then I'm free for the next four days :-) I'm going to Turku on Sunday, to visit my family. I am actually picking my friends up from the airport (you usually have to travel to Helsinki if you are flying to other countries) and then we are driving to Turku. Which is nice, I have company and they can tell me how their trip went :-)
Well, have to get back to work now. It's Saturday people!

Btw, that thing in my hair is actually a necklace, but I thought that it would look cute in the head also :-)

WHYYYYYYY??!?!??!





Sometimes I really hate myself.

I don´t know how it is possible for me to ALWAYS manage to break my phones.
The first one was my first smartphone. I dropped it. Multiple times. I mean like ten times everyday. It was pretty hard to crack. The time I got those cracks, was when I threw my phone to the couch and I it missed. Yes, my fault. 

The second phone look pretty bad, right? That happened when I was at work and needed to pee. So in the toiler I leaned to put my pants down and the phone was in my chest pocket. It dropped. Straight to its screen. I almost cried. Maybe I did a little. And the engineer from work said that I shouldn´t bring it to the clean room anymore, that it doesn´t look so clean. So I bought a new one.

And what happened?
After a few glasses of wine with Liine, I got up really fast and the phone was on the bench next to me. I managed to move my hands just right to make the phone drop... And I have had that phone two weeks before that happened. I even bought a cover so that wouldn´t happen again. Clearly I should have one of those old phones that didn´t break no matter how hard you tried...

Yes, I shouldn´t have any nice things :-(

MORNING BLISS








No, this is not going to be one of those "I just woke up" things. And that is because I haven´t slept yet, haha! And I´m planning not to until the next night. 
I was at work the last one, so I am feeling a bit funny now. I just want to get into the right rhythm immediately so here we go! I haven´t done this before, except the time we went to Spain, but then I slept in the airplane, so it was not totally the same. 

When I got home from work, I had to visit a super market to buy some plugs, because we had the "old" kind of lamps for the ceiling, and those don´t fit here. But one is already done (except that Steven said that I put it in a wrong place, he wanted some other lamp to the living room). So basically none is done, heh! 

Now I´m going to sauna, it is already heated (and yes, we have a sauna, which is awesome) and put on a face mask and hair conditioner and hopefully get prettier, hahahah! 

Have a great Wednesday :-)
