Bye bye blog - See you in Instagram

Hi sweeties! ūüíó

A very long time since posting here!
I never meant to just vanish from my blog and always thought if I were to quit posting, I would write about it. But the thing is, I didn't plan to quit when I did. I actually have some old drafts here waiting, but never got around to finish them. I have gotten some questions about if I'm going to continue blogging or where have I gone, so I decided to make this final post.

Many things happened around those times when I stopped posting, around two years ago. I had to cut a very toxic family member from my life and it will take probably a long time to recover from. Then I let some nasty internet rumors and systematic lolita community bullying get to me and I started feeling very insecure about this blog. It felt weird for a long time for me not to make posts and I missed it. I did this for five years and it was big part of my daily life, but now I've already gotten used to not being here.

I'm still active on Instagram, so feel free to see and talk to me there! ūüėä

ūüĆĻ Red Riding Hood lolita ūüĆĻ


Moikka rakkaat otukset siell√§ ruudun takana! (⌒▽⌒)♥

Yksi entuudestaan tuttu kuvaaja, Antti Karppinen, kysyi josko haluaisin l√§hte√§ h√§nelle malliksi sellaiseen studiovalokuvaus demoon tapahtumaan Kuva ja Kamera messut. No tietysti! Olin samaisessa tapahtumassa ja samassa hommassa viime vuonna, tosin Karppinen sairastui ja kuvattiin sitten eri valokuvaajan kanssa. T√§mm√∂iset meiningit on aina mahtavia, hyv√§√§ menoa ja ihmisi√§ ja kuvailua. Yay ♡


Hello there lovely creatures behind the screen! (⌒▽⌒)♥

This one photographer I already know, Antti Karppinen, asked if I wanted to go as his model for this studio photography demo at a Photo and Camera fair event. Well of course! I was at the same event last year and doing the same thing, although Karppinen fell ill and so we did the photoshoot with another photographer. These kind of things are amazing, the happening and people and photography. Yay ♡

P√§√§sin vihdoin k√§ytt√§m√§√§n ihanaista kettumekkoa, mik√§ on odotellut mekkokaapissa viime kes√§st√§ asti. Se on aivan ihana Taobao-kaupasta tilattu printtimekko, miss√§ on kettuja!! Iiiih (°◡°♡)
L√∂ysin t√§ss√§ talvella my√∂s ihan superl√∂yd√§n 2€:lla tuollaisen t√§yspuuvillaisen r√∂yhel√∂ shaalin ja upean punaisen! Oli upeaa saada koordailla se t√§m√§n kanssa. Muutenkin punainen tuo lolitaan, eleganttiin tyyliin, sellaista pient√§ potkua. Punainen lolitassa on omaan silm√§√§n jotenkin erityisen upeaa. T√§ll√§ asulla siis mentiin messuilla lauantaina. 

Oli v√§h√§n hauska sattuma, mutta asu n√§ytt√§√§ todella paljon satuhahmolta punahilkka! Tykk√§√§n! ♥


I finally got the opportunity to use this lovely fox dress, which has been hanging in my dress closet since last summer. It's absolutely adorable print dress with foxes from a Taobao store!! Iiiih (°◡°♡)
During winter I also made a super find for 2€, that full cotton frilly shawl and in amazing red color! Was amazeballs to coord it with this one. Always red brings to lolita, an elegant style, a little bit of a kick. In my eyes red in lolita is somehow especially gorgeous. This was my outfit for the fair on Saturday. 

It was a bit funny coincidence, but the outfit really looks like the fairytale character Red Riding Hood! Me likey ♥






V√§leiss√§ kun on luppoaikaa, niin on ihana k√§yd√§ kiert√§m√§ss√§ valokuvan√§yttelyt. 
Erityisesti luontokuvista el√§inkuvat ovat niin kauniita, jotkut vaan osaa napata sen hetken kuvaan. 

In between when I have time, it's so very lovely to stroll around the photo exhibits.
Especially from the nature photography the animals are so beautiful, some just can capture the moment.


Friday's look~ I really liked how this turned out, very happy ♥

Siell√§ oli my√∂s Leica kamera -piste, miss√§ sai otattaa itsest√§√§n kuvan ja min√§h√§n kyll√§ otatin! Ensin en edes tajunnut, ett√§ kamera printtaa kuvan heti, ajattelin ett√§ se on joku perus "ota t√§ss√§ potretti itsest√§si" -paikka. Mesta mink√§ st√§ndin pikkuvarastossa sain pit√§√§ mun romppeita, sano ett√§ mun tarvii k√§yd√§ otattaan kuva ja oikeessa olivat, kyll√§ tarvitsi! Sain muistoksi ihan oikeat k√§sin kosketeltavat kuvat. (*°▽°*)


There was also a Leica camera stand, where one could go and had their picture taken and yes I did! First didn't even realize, that the camera prints the photo right away, just thought it's some basic "have your portrait taken here" -place. The stand that let me keep my stuff in their little storage room, said that I have to go and take a picture taken and yes, they were right, I had to! Got a real life photos to remember this. (*°▽°*)

♡ Angelic Pretty Princess Cat JSK ♡


Moi ihanaiset ♥

Meill√§ oli t√§ss√§ taannoin miitti paikallisten lolitojen kanssa ja p√§√§sin ulkoiluttamaan ensimm√§ist√§ kertaa mun unelmaista kissamekkoa! T√§m√§n nappasin joulun aikaan Angelic Prettyn alennusmyynnist√§ ja se on siit√§ asti roikkunut olohuoneen oven p√§√§lt√§, ett√§ voin ihastella sit√§ joka kerta, kun kuljen ohi. Kuolasin t√§t√§ printti√§ jo aiemmin viime vuonna kun se julkaistiin, mutta uusiin br√§ndimekkoihin ei ole varaa, mutta voi sit√§ tutinaa kun n√§inkin t√§m√§n olevan -40% alennuksessa! Se on nyt oikeasti minun, uusi Angelic Pretty mekko! Joku lolita virstanpylv√§s. Se on aikas spessua, koska t√§m√§ on mun toinen uutena ostettu japanilainen br√§ndimekko. (❤◡❤)


Hello lovelies ♥

We had a meetup while back with local lolitas and I got to take out my new dreamy kitty cat dress for the first time! I got this one during Christmas time from Angelic Pretty's sale and since then it has been hanging from the living room door, so that I can admire it every time passing by. I was drooling over this print already when it was released last year, but can't afford new brand dresses, but oh my the excitement when saw this in sale for -40%! It is really now mine, a new Angelic Pretty dress! Some lolita milestone. It's quite special, because this is my second Japanese brand dress bought as new. (❤◡❤)

Mekon nimi on Princess Cat ja se on vaaleanpunainen, mik√§ voisi olal t√§ydellisemp√§√§?! ♡
M√§ muistan kun joskus monta vuotta sitten sain syntym√§p√§iv√§kortin, miss√§ oli kissan kuva, sill√§ oli prinsessakruunu ja kortti oli vaaleanpunainen ja siin√§ oli viel√§ kiilt√§vi√§ timangeja. Se oli t√§ydellisyytt√§ just mulle. Ainiin syntt√§ritkin on tulossa taas, muutaman p√§iv√§n p√§√§st√§ olisi 30 vuotta t√§ynn√§. Argh! Ajattelin jos juhlistaisi isoilla teemasyntt√§reill√§, mutta p√§√§tin ett√§ teenkin pienimuotoisesti jotain itselleni mukavaa. Itse juhlap√§iv√§n√§ olen kuvauksissa, mutta onneksi samalla viikolla on p√§√§si√§isloma ja p√§√§see sitten tekem√§√§n jotain omaa kivaa. ♥



The dress is called Princess Cat and it's pink, what could be more perfect?! ♡
I remember some time many years ago when I got a birthday card, where was a picture of a cat who had a princess crown and the card was pink and it even had some sparkly diamonds. It was absolute perfectness for me. Oh yeah, my birthday is coming up again, in a few days will have 30 whole ones. Argh! Was thinking about celebrating with some big theme party, but instead decided to something small scale and do what I want just for me. On the actual day will be in a photoshoot, but luckily on the same week there's Easter holiday and can do some own fun. ♥



Asustelaatikosta ei l√∂ytynytk√§√§n juuri sopivaa mustapinkki√§ p√§√§hinett√§, joten p√§√§tin tehd√§ sellaisen. Halusin siihen prinsessaviboja tietenkin. Materiaaleina k√§ytin vanhaa hiuspantaa, tukikangasta, vaaleanpunaista lakanaa, mustaa pitsi√§, satiini- ja samettinauhaa, helmi√§, lankaa ja neulaa, sek√§ tuollaisen muovisen timantti syd√§men, joka on mun vanhasta ponnarista, kun olin 6-vuotias. Siit√§ tuli oikein ihana, tykk√§√§n hirmuisesti. N√§it√§ t√§mm√∂si√§ asusteita on muutenkin kiva n√§perrell√§. (*⌒―⌒*)


There wasn't any perfectly matching in my accessory drawer, so decided to make one. I wanted it to have princess vibes of course. As materials I used an old headband, buckram, pink sheet, black lace, satin and velvet lace, pearls, thread and needle, also that plastic diamond heart, which is from my hairband from when I was 6-years-old. It became very lovely, I like it a lot. Anyways enjoying doing these kind of accessories. (*⌒―⌒*)
