Looking like a person again after being sick! ♡



Hello darlings! ♥
This time I'm only writing in English, but luckily it's not a problem for the majority of people. Gotta wake up early tomorrow and it's almost midnight. Okies, so I have been having a really bad sinus infection for a few weeks now. It started to get really bad and had migraines every day, all day. Nothing was helping, did all the things I could think of! Then just had to go to a doctor, luckily I have insurance, so I can go to a private place and actually get some help. I have this doctor who I've payed visits since more than 15 years ago. She knows me and I don't have to convince her that I'm actually sick. Got some medicine and antibiotics, took the last pill today and been almost migraine free for a couple of days. Today I had some errands to run and since I felt a little bit better, I wanted to look like myself and an actual human being again. The perfect way was to put on some makeup, dress up and go out! (◠‿◠)

You know that feeling, when you're really sick and don't really have strength to do anything and shouldn't because then might be even more sick and for a longer period of time. When you have to rest a lot and there's no one to take care of things, everything will pile up to your to-do list. It starts to get to you or at least it starts to get to me. I cannot do household chores, even if inspired there's no chance getting any crafting done, can't ever read with a migraine, starting to notice the growing pile of dishes and dust everywhere. I hate it! Now I have a gigantic urge to get so much done, but I'm still not recovered and will most likely be more or less sick with a cold and humid weather like this. Gotta try and take it slow.

Today I knew that I had to go and buy cat food and groceries, also to pick up a package from the post office. (I did this quick unboxing video, if it turned ok, will post in on youtube soon) My mom also had some errands to run, so we went together. She lives next door to me these days, so we see each other a lot. There are good sides and bad sides really, lets see how it goes. Well anyways we agreed to go out today, so I did a quick makeup this morning and dressed up into this casual pastel goth kawaii mixed styled outfit.

For a while now have been dying to wear my new wig! It's a Rose Fade colored pink ombre Rhapsody collection wig from Gothic Lolita Wigs. It's one of those which I've been wanting to get for a long time. Now it's mine and I love it! The color is amazing! ♥ Currently I own GLW 's Rhapsody wigs in four colorways. The design is something that I feel like it fits me well and I love how many styles I can wear it with. ◠‿◠



I felt so good about dressing up! Been wanting to for all those days I've had to stay in bed. So many ideas and inspirations. When looking at that half dead pale and sickly face in the mirror, it was a real delight to be able to put on some makeup. You know how it feels when after being sick you sort of become alive again. It's a great feeling!

The black velvet salopette I'm wearing is actually from a Japanese brand Emily Temple Cute. It is more likely to be worn with some cute style, since it has a bow and ruffles on the back. You might have noticed that I like to mix things up and I think it's super fun! Now I'm wearing this cute clothing piece with a more pastel goth style. Hihii~



Hope you have a lovely weekend sweeties! ♡

✤ 10 random facts about me ✤


Hei rakkaat ♥
Tässä on ollut pieni bloggailutauko, no syytä olenkin ilmoitellut instagramin ja facebook-sivun puolella. Masennus on tullut vierailulle ja no oikeastaan ollut jo jonkin aikaa ja sitä ennen työuupumus, tästä ajattelin kirjoitella lisää myöhemmin. Tällä hetkellä mulla on paha poskiontelotulehdus, joten ei ole voimia alkaa sitä aihetta nyt. Se on kuiteskin raskasta ajatella ja kirjoittaa.

Mulla on ollut mielessä sellainen sekalaisten faktojen postaus ja tässä niitä olisi kymmenen kipaletta. Mukana myös kuvia meidän paikallisesta miitistä. Josefiinalle iso kiitos kuvausavusta! ♡


Hi darlings ♥
I've had a little bloggin break, well I have told the reason already in instagram and on facebook-page. A depression has come for a visit and actually been hanging around for some time now and before that a burnout, thinking about writing more about this later. Currently I'm having a bad case of sinus infection, so there's no strength to get into that subject. It is quite heavy to think and write about.

I've been thinking about a random facts post for a while and here would be ten of those. There's also pictures of our local meetup. Big thanks to Josefiina for helping with the photos! ♡


| Dress: Rabbith Teeth | Shoes: Bodyline | Hair: Gothic Lolita Wigs |


1. Mun lempparijätski on lakritsi! Se on hassu jäänne siitä, että kun mun äiti oli raskaana, se söi paljon lakritsijätskiä. Ei koskaan ennen sitä tai pahemmin sen jälkeen. Olisinkohan minä himoinnut sitä ja saanut äidin syömään vai toisin päin, että jäänyt mulle himotus siitä kun äiti söi sitä. Ei voi tietää.

1. My favourite ice cream is licorice! It's a funny leftover from the time that my mom was pregnant, because she ate a lot of licorice ice cream. Never before it or rarely afterwards. It might be that I was craving for it and made my mom eat it or the other way around, that the craving has become from the fact that she ate it. Who knows.


2. Olen tosi huono saamaan selvä laulujen lyriikoista. No en tietenkään kaikista, mutta vähänkin epäselvistä, nopeista tai hassusti lausutuista kohdista.

2. I'm very bad at hearing the words in song lyrics. Well not of course all of them, but even the slightly unclear, fast or weirdly pronounced parts.



3. Kun olin teini, noin 14-16 vuotiaana, meikkasin oikeastaan joka päivä. En voinut poistua kotoa ilman meikkiä. Kerran oli puhetta koulussa, että jos mä tulisin ilman meikkiä, yks jäbä joka aina laitto hiuksiaan tulis ilman hisugeeliä. En suostunu. x)

3. When I was a teenager, around 14-16 years old, I used to wear makeup almost every day. I couldn't leave home without makeup. Once in school we were talking that if I would come to school without makeup, this one dude who always did his hair, would come without any hair gel. I didn't accept. :P



4. Olen hirmuinen huulirasva-addicti! En pärjää edes paria tuntia ilman. Mulla onkin useampi huulirasva aina mukana, tarvii olla varalla ja myös kotona yksi löytyy aina jostain kädenulottuvilta. Laitoimpa juuri tätä kirjoittaessa uuden kerroksen kosteutta. :P

4. I'm a huge lip balm-addict! I can't do without for even a couple of hours. I always have several with me, gotta have spare ones and also at home there's always one within my reach. Just know while writing this, put a new layer of moisture. :P


5. En voi sietää kuorsausta, nenän tuhinaa tai vinkunaa! Se on sellainen mikä saa stressisuonen pullottamaan ja repimään hiukset päästä ja en vaan kestä! Nuorena kävin potkasemassa mun faijaa aina jos sen kuorsaus kuulu mun huoneeseen asti. Hyvä etten räjähdä bussissa jollekin jonkan nenästä kuuluu järkyttävä ääni. Tämä pätee myös omaan nenään, herään yöllä jos nenäni tuhisee ja en saa nukahdettua ennen kuin saan sen kuriin. Korvatulpat on myös no-no, koska sitten kuulen oman hengitykseni.

5. I can't stand snoring or any nose sniffle sounds! It's something that makes my stress-vein pop out and tear my hair off and I just can't stand it! When I was young, I used to go kick my dad if his snoring reached my room. I'm in the limit of exploding to someone on the bus if their nose is making sounds. This applies to my one nose as well, I wake up at night if my nose is snuffling and can't fall asleep before I can fix it. Earplugs are a no-no, because then I can hear myself breathing.




6. Nukun jokaikinen yö saman pehmolelun kanssa. Sain kissapehmolelun isosiskoltani sen jälkeen, kun kissani Ninni kuoli ja masennuin syvästi. Pehmolelusta tuli turvaleluni ja pidin sitä mukana ja silittelin koko ajan. Sitten vieroitin itseni siitä ja otin kainaloon vain öisin. Otan sen yleensä mukaan jopa matkoillekin. Vuosien aikana on vain muutama yö, ettei se ole ollut kainalossani jossain kylässä. Se on jo todella nuhraantunut ja hieman litistynyt vinoon, koska se on öisin hieman vasemman kylkeni alla.

6. I sleep every single night with the same plushtoy. I got a cat stuffed animal from my big sister after my cat Ninni died and got deeply depressed. The plush toy became my safety toy and I had it with me and petted it all the time. Then I narrowed it down to only having it in my arms at night. I usually take it with me even when traveling. During the years there has only been a few nights when it wasn't next to me, times when I was sleeping over somewhere else. It is already really worn out and a little bit flattened into a crooked shape, because at night it's a bit under my left side. 


7. Tosi usein kun hymyilen, mun suupielet on oikeasti alaspäin. 

7. Very often when I smile, the corners of my mouth actually point down. 


8. Olen erityisherkkä ihminen monessa asiassa. Yksi pieni asia mikä häiritsee mua on vaatteiden sisällä olevat laput ja leikkaankin ne aina pois. Jos mulla on sukassa joku pieni muru tai roska, se on pakko ottaa pois tai jos sängyllä on jotain, se häiritsee mua ja pakko siistiä se. 

8. I'm a highly sensitive person in ways. A little thing that bothers me is the labels inside clothes and I always cut them off. If I have a tiny piece of anything in my sock, I gotta take it out or if there's something on my bed, it really bothers me and I have to clean it. 


9. Olen todella huono huomaamaan jos joku flirttailee mun kanssa tai on ylipäänsä kiinnostunu sillä lailla. Voin ihan törkeesti huomaamattani sivuutta asian, jos sitä ei suoraan sanota, kun luulen että ihminen on vaan mukava ja haluaa olla kaveri ja keskustella. Tosin mun yli-intoilu ja hörhily tulkitaan monesti taas väärin, kun mulla on vaan tosi kivaa.

9. I'm very bad at noticing if someone is flirting with me or is anyways interested in me that wort of way. I can just rudely ignore the whole thing with my unnoticeability if it isn't said directly, because I might think that someone is just a nice person and want's to be my friend and have a good conversation. Although my over-enthusiasm and goofyness is many times interpret wrongly, when I'm just having a really good time.


10. Juodessani kahvia tai teetä, jätän kuppin pohjalle aina pienen lirun, en koskaan juo sitä täysin loppuun. Joskus koko kuppikin kyllä unohtuu ja löydän sen myöhemmin. x)

10. When I drink coffee or tea, I always leave a tiny bit into the bottom of the cup, I never completely finish it. Sometimes I even forget the whole cup somewhere and find it later. x)



Meillä oli oikein mukava pieni miitti nelistään. Käytiin kiertämässä Pyynikinlinnaa ja nautittiin sen estetiikasta, kauniista huoneista, tauluista ja kaikesta. Tein tapani mukaan sitä, että kosketan kaikkea ja sanon "mun". Ihan kuin siten merkkaisin kaiken. Museokierroksen jälkeen mentiin takapihalle kuvailemaan asukuvia jokaisesta ja tulikin ihania otoksia kauniissa ympäristössä. 

We had a very lovely little meetup with the four of us. We went to visit Pyynikinlinna and enjoyed it's aesthetics, beautiful rooms, paintings and everything. As usual, I did the thing where I touch everything and say "mine". Just like would be marking my territory. After the museum stroll we went to the backyard to take outfit photos of everyone and we got some really lovely ones in the beautiful environment.

✦ Dark side of the moon ✦ Corset Story black overbust ✦



Moi ihanaiset lukijani ♥
Olipa muuten aivan mahtava tavata teitä niin monta Traconissa! Olin tosi otettu, kun tulitte moikkaileen! ♡

No niin, jatketaampas kuvien purkamista tänne blogiin. Nappasin tuossa kesällä siis kaksi Instant Shape korsettia Corset Story -nettikaupasta, toisen hyvin pinkin ja söpön (tsekkaa aiempi postaus ja Maria Antoinette look TÄÄLTÄ) ja toisen tumman. Jokaisella ihmisellä on enemmän tai vähemmän näkyvä synkkä puoli, kuten kuu näyttää kaunista valoisaa puoltaan, mutta toisella puolella vallitsee täysi pimeys. Minä hieman pompin puolelta toiselle, koska se on mielestäni hauskempaa! :D


Hello my lovely readers ♥
Starting out to say that it was such awesomeness to see so many of you in Tracon! I was very happy when so many of you came to say hi! ♡
Oh well, let's continue to post some pictures here. In the summer I grabbed a couple of Instant Shape corsets from Corset Story -webstore, one really pink and cute (check out the previous post and Maria Antoinette look HERE) and one dark one. Every one has a more or less showing dark side, like the moon is showing it's beautiful light side, but there's a total darkness in the shadows. I'm kind of bouncing back and forth between these, because I think it's more fun! :D



Overbust with Angled Panels Starps Black Lace and Turquoise Ribbon


Instant Shape
10 spiral steel bones
4 flat steel bones
Front & back modesty panels
6 suspender loops


Tämä korsetti on tyyliltään ja muodoltaankin hieman erilainen, kuin aiempi vaaleanpunainen. Isoimpana erona värin lisäksi on tietenkin olkaimet. Niitä saa tietenkin hieman nauhojen avulla hieman säädettyä, mutta olkainten olemassaolo rajoittaa korsetin sijaintia kehoon nähden paljonkin. Rinnus on myös erilainen, se on hieman litteämpi ja sellainen tyypillisempi pursotus-tissi-tyylinen. Tykkään saumojen muodosta ja pitsistä ja ihanasta kankaasta. Istuvuus on myös ihan hyvä, mutta taidan silti tykätä enemmän vaaleanpunaisen mallista. 


This corset has a little bit different design and shape, than the previous light pink one. The biggest different after the colour is of course the shoulder straps. Surely they can be adjusted a bit with the ribbons, but the fact they are there restricts the position of the corset on the bodice quite much. The bust part is a bit different as well, it's somewhat more flat and the type of push-your-boobs-out kind of thing. I like the shape of the seams and the lace and the lovely fabric. The fit is quite nice too, but I think I might still like the shape of the pink one better. 




Kaikki kuvat on itse räpsimiä meidän keittiössä ja meidän komea lamppu siellä vilahtaa. :P Yrittänyt tässä hieman reenailla kuvaustaitojakin, mutta tietenkin rajoittaa se, ettei kuvakulmaa ole niin helppo vaihtaa. Mulla on siis järkkäri jalustassa ja räpsäisen kaukolaukasimella kuvan. Eräänlaisia selfieitä nämäkin, ei kyllä mitään ihan helppoa aina. Tällä kerralla teki todella vaikeaksi se, että valoisuus vaihteli koko ajan, siis ihan muutaman sekunnin välein. Ulkona tuuli hirmuisesti ja juuri kun sain kipsutettua vaihtamaan asetuksia, tuli pilvisempää tai päinvastoin aurinkoisempaa ja juoksin edes takaisin koko ajan. Hih~
En ole mikään photoshop-taituri, enkä omista lightroomia, mutta koitin silti saada goottityylistä ja kuu-inspiroitunutta jälkeä. Saa kertoa reippaasti mielipiteitä! Mielelläni kuulisin. :)



All the pictures are taken by me in our kitchen and our handsome chandelier is peaking in the corners. :P I have tried to practice my photographing skills, but of course it is limited, because can't change the angle so easily. I have my systems camera on a tripod and taking pictures with a remote controller. Sort of like selfies these are, not the most easy ones though. This time it was made difficult by the weather, because the light changed all the time, I mean in a few seconds. There was a huge wind outside and just when I got to go and changed the settings, it became more cloudy or the other way around more sunny and had to run back and forth all the time. Hih~
I'm not a photoshop wizard nor do I own lightroom, but I still tried to manage get some gothic and moon -inspired to these. You are most welcome to tell me what you think! I would be happy to hear. :)

Arvostan kovasti rehellisyyttä ja mun mielestä on parempi sanoa päin naamaa miten asia on, mitä lähtee kiertelemään sitä. Paljon pahempi on se, että puhuu sitten paskaa selän takana ja se petetty fiilis, jos saa tietää toisen puhuneen muuta kuin miten asia oikeasti on. Todella vaikea saada luottamusta enää takaisin. On parempi olla suoraan mitä on, kuin esittää jotain ihan muuta (tietenkin säädyllisyys on ihan hyvä ottaa huomioon). Ihmisillä on kuitenkin luontaisesti omanlaiset roolinsa eri paikoissa ja tilanteissa, mutta siinä on kuitenkin selkeä raja teeskentelyyn ja valehteluun. Pimeän puolensakin voi näyttää, sen ei tarvitse olla täysin pimennossa.
Yritän olla rehellinen myös itselleni, vaikka käytän sitä suurinta valhetta ehkä liiankin usein: "Kyllä mä tän muistan..". Nii varmaan! x)


I value honesty a lot and I think it's better to say things straight to someone's face the way it is, rather than circle around it. It is much worse, that will speak badly afterwards behind the person's back and the betrayed feeling, if finding out that the person has been saying something else than how it really is. Very difficult to get the trust back. It's better to be what one is honestly, than to pretend something they aren't (well decency is always to be taken in consideration). People also have natural roles of their own in different places and situations, but there is still a clear line to pretending and lying. The dark side can be shown, it doesn't have to be totally hidden.
I try to be honest to myself as well, even though I use the biggest lie of the all maybe too often: "Yes yes, I'll remember this..". Yeah right! x)
