Strike purple






Black hooded zipper blouse - Zara
Leather leggings (which you cannot really see) - Gina Tricot
White blouse - Vila

2 (or 1 and a half if you are being pessimistic) days until the exam and I just keep on blogging. Yesterday I bought professional hair color mascara (very similar consistency to hair chalk). Today I tried it on and it looks pretty banging in my opinion... In some of the pictures the exposure was too high and it washed out the purple completely, which is a shame. I like my lighter hair a lot but it got longer than usual to get used to. I'm going to have to avoid wearing white though, which is a bit inconvenient since a half of my wardrobe consists of white clothes. I have to get back to studying now though. I swear to god after this period is over I'll have to take a break from anything medieval or roman for a while. Gotta love legal history!

I have an exam again on Friday but I have lost my study motivation completely. On the bright side, soon after I'm traveling to Cardiff to see my sister! I'm so ecstatic about it you have no idea... I hope you enjoy this look!

A fever for a change



   







Fur - Zara
Shirt - Brandy M.
Skirt - Bershka

I have no idea how these pictures are going to turn out as I had to do everything by using my phone. Why? Because my lap top broke. I have been recently the subject of a huge tide of bad luck. First my lap top broke, then my phone screen (a screen protector is keeping it intact as we speak), then I heard that I have registered myself to the completely wrong courses for the next period, and today I had to walk to uni because the wheel of my bike broke. I'm starting to remind myself of the movie Just My Luck! Haha!
But regardless of my bad luck it's good to be back. I had such hard time hauling over all the clothes I bought in sales from Finland but I effing did it. For example, I got the fur coat from Zara for 19.99e! I'm very happy with it. If we are talking fashion here, in hind sight I probably would switch the skirt to jeans as the fur is already a big center piece in itself (also it was cold as hell) but this works too. 
I've been getting a make over fever again. I want to go super light blonde and have this faded pastel color ombre-ish fade on one side at the bottom. I cannot explain it better than that but if I go through with it you'll see what I mean. Going back to blonde seems to be the thing now if you check out what all the celebs have done with their hair, and since I'm already relatively blonde I might as well go blonder. 


I also redid my nails as a part of my fever for change! Whaddya think?

TB to a hippie market for my hundereth post!


 
 






I wore a hat and the top from bikbok, and skirt from Vero Moda. Gosh, I miss summer! My last post was the hundereth one I have published so for a celebration I thought I'd throwback some unpublished pictures from summer. :)

Happy 1 out of 365











Happy new year my loves!! This is what I wore for new year's eve. The dress is from Bik Bok and the necklaces I got from Gina Tricot. As per usual, I went on a shopping frenzy on the actual "it-day". The dress was pretty cheap. Apparently, it was a left over from the christmas stock but it worked for new years just as well in my opinion. I love the back and the golden pendant that hangs down your back. I just realized that I didn't take a picture where you could see it properly but I really love that detail. It also went well with the rest of my jewelry. Another apology for the quality of the pictures. It was fairly dark so I had to set the shutter speed low and we could not steady the camera enough. Oh well, I'm sure  nobody cares!

My new year celebrations are pretty hazy to me to be honest. We ended up going to a club after all and I got decently wasted. The night ended in me face planting in front of a taxi. Later the driver commented how he'll most likely always remember my glorious slip and how he only saw a whoosh of hair as I went down. Besides, the drilling headache from my hangover I don't feel much difference to last year. I can only fathom the greatness of all the lame great jokes and puns people are brewing in their minds whilst snickering to themselves. 
Anyhoo, I wish you all a great new year! May your hangovers ease you gently into the new year and may you, not abstain from making mistakes, but make better mistakes. The new year provides us a whole new chance to make thousands of errors and fuck ups so my challenge to you is to at least get creative with it. After all there's only 365 days left until we can reinvent ourselves yet again, and when your annoying relative brings up yet again how you sounded like a wailing moose in your off-key cover of Mariah Carey's All I Want for Christmas Is You because that one night you had a weak moment and you drunkenly said yes to Karaoke, or when you forgot to set your spotify account to a private session before listening to Alvin and the Chipmunks christmas carols and it got published on to Facebook, you can brush it off.  Because, god, that was last year and your a totally changed person now.

Happy New Year 2015!

Merry Christmas Eve












Wearing:
| Skirt & jacket - Primark | Top - Bik Bok | Necklaces - Primark |


 I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw all the snow as I arrived to Finland last night. I'm so glad we're having a white christmas this year! Even more importantly, I'm just glad to finally be home with the family. Especially, being reunited with my twinnie feels so damn good. I missed her soo freaking much! 
Here's another rather Christmassy outfit I wore in Stuttgart. I thought the color scheme was a perfect fit for today, haha! Also, as you see I got my nails re-done into a bit more seasonal color as an early present for myself.  

Merry Christmas Eve!

Wie Geht's Stuttgart?



   
The coolest train of all the trains we took. It had little "travel rooms/sections" just like in Harry Potter.
Wearing:
| Flannel tee - Brandy Melville | Pants - Bik Bok | Bag - River Island |

So after the final exam we raced home and took off for Germany right away. We first took a bus to Aachen, from where we traveled all the way to Stuttgart to my friend's house by train. Overall, it took at least five hours to get there. It was a lot of fun and definitely worth the travel. Stuttgart is a pretty city. A lot of similarities could be drawn to other European nordic cities. Just like Maastricht, Stuttgart was big on Christmas lights, and had a homely festive atmosphere. However, it still had the buzz of a larger city. Our main focus was shopping and I was set on getting all my christmas presents before coming to Finland. To be honest, this was just what I needed: some time to rewind and a change of scenery to get over the exam stress. The trip was pretty impromptu in hind sight but I'm glad we went and I got to see Germany outside the airports for the first time.

Library Days and Fried Brains


 


Shoes - River Island | Skirt - Subdued | Blouse - H&M

4 days left until the first exam of the exam week. Right now my head feels like a blonde empty shell with fried brain goo inside. It's 9 pm and I'm sitting in the library. I've asked other fellow library ladies about what they love to wear to library and most swore in the name of skirts. There, you see now? Who wouldn't swear in the name of comfort and fabulousness. Besides, you get to not wear pants. Last, weekend me and my girl squad all accidentally came to the library in skirts. You'd think we had planned it. Great minds (when not fried) think alike.
Have a great week and to the fellow exam takers: See you on the other side!

P.S. Very sorry for the crappy phone camera quality. Wanted you to guys see it regardless of the compromised quality. ;)

A Fishtail for a Stress Head




Wearing:
Skirt - Brandy Melville
Blouse - Zara 

Things are getting a bit hectic again as we approach the exam week, the only thing between me and the christmas holiday. (Yippee!) When life gets busy there's no better combo than braids (I prefer fishtail) and dry shampoo when it comes to managing, not a bed head, but what I call a 'stress head'. 
As you may notice, I've been getting into skirts lately. I don't know what's gotten into me but I find them so irresistibly cute. Too bad the temperature is dropping as we speak.
Today I'll take a break from studying though because I'm going to go see Sam Smith in Utrecht. I am beyond excited! Have a great weekend.

Kisses,
J


Recreating Clueless



Coat and Shoes - River Island | Skirt - Subdued | Top - Brandy Melville | Socks -Urban Outfitters

I reckon that the greatest fashion advice of this winter can be found from Clueless. Just like last year, a big wool coat is a must. Also I have spied cute little plaid skirts popping into various clothing stores. As it's cold, stockings and/or high knees are essential. For us fashion geeks it's just more to play with. I'm very traditional when it comes to stockings-- I always buy black. My mission for this winter is to experiment with other colors as well. For example, I have a vision of a perfect pair of thin grey stockings. (Grey IS a color, okay...)

Citea - My new favorite tea shop/cafe in Amsterdam!

 Enjoy and embrace the new week!
