* Shoe Dilemma *

So as the headline says, I'm having A MAJOR SHOE DILEMMA!!! 

I've been wanting to get new shoes like for ages, but I can be quite picky when it comes to shoes. I don't want them to be too masculine, but not too ladylike either. I don't want the heels to be too high, 'cos I'm afraid of braking my ankles. And I don't want real leather (because animal rights) and if the shoes are fake leather, I'm not ready to pay more than 40€. Unless they are absolutely fabulous and I want them really bad!

I've been admiring Jeffrey Campbell's Lita -shoes for ages, but first of all they put down my two major rules:

* Too expensive (I mean come on? They're really nice shoes, but 200€??? phew... )
* Too high
(* I don't know if they're real leather, but if they are, then 3 major rules...)

Especially these Spiked Litas are just........ drooooolllll~

I also would not want to go with the flow, so to speak. I'd like to be a bit more unique.

I found similar shoes to these from Aliexpress.com  and they costed way less, but still... the height. I mean aren't those girls wearing these shoes afraid that one stumble on the street while walking and you might end up having loose and aching ankles for the rest of your life or even ending up at the emergency room?

Well I'm not the one to judge those girls - somehow I even admire them for having the balls to wear these shoes. 

but nevertheless these are the shoes I was thinking of buying instead:

I like it that these shoes have some heel.  (Jeffrey Campbell fakes.
lol I don't give a s...... :DD ) also in white.

The London

It's almost a shame to admit, that I've been very busy the whole summer. My aunt came from Germany to Finland. Shen was here almost a month. And that whole time we were in our summer cottage. It was really fun, but at some point I realized that I wanted to come back to city and spend some time with my friends - rather than slacking off and doing nothing. But hey! I made progress in reading The Lord Of The Rings! It's now my third time - I think I'll never get bored to it! Such an awesome book. Really recommend it if you haven't read it yet. :)

Now I'm going to post some pictures that I took from London, as promised! I don't photoshop or modify my pictures (because i think it's lying - in some way. Not like if you put some more contrast or light in it, but if you remove or change anything in the actual picture, that is lying. Don't get me wrong here... please? ) But as I was saying the pics might not be superb quality or extremely accurate, but forgive me.

(there are quite a bit of these......so bear with me, okay? :D lol )

From left to right: Anna, Rosa and Riina. we were heading for the city. :)

the urban neighborhood. 

the view from near by park. you can actually see the city's skyscrapers - far, far away. 

we traveled a lot by bus. It was easy, quite cheap and
you were able to see the landscapes. 

closing to Big Ben!!!! We had these so called Oyster cards,
which are good if you want easily travel with bus, tube, trains or anything. 

We had to take a picture of this sad, sad lion.
Don't know what it's actually called...? someone
educate me?

The famous parliament building and big ben. 

The London Eye. I wanted to go there,
but we didn't have the time. :( next time, next time.

As you can see, it was such a jolly ride!
Ofc at the second floor of the bus. 

I forgot my black leather jacket at summer cottage,
so i was bound to take the not-as-nice brown jacket.

poor horses... standing there all day... :((

Riina @ bus. 

some ''turre'' pictures. :D turre as tourist. 

Riina was pretty HOLY! lollollol

the British Museum. It was HUGE and AWESOME!
Also free admittance!!11 

Riina and the mummies <3 ''Okayyyy!''

lol my stomach area looks fat, because of the wind
blowing from behind. :--D hahha

Don't know what this pose is for...?
we were going to the museum............ 

our last day in London - so we went to a bar! It was a really nice place.
from left to right: Onni (means lucky, he was Rosa's British boyfriend.
Don't know why he was called Onni though), Rosa and Paula.  

Richard (Anna's boyfriend) or Rikardo or Dick or Jorma. hehhe And
Anna and her friend Harry. 

the drinks were pretty strong but also tasty! yum. 

And the morning when we were leaving.
Anna's house. We don't have pics from the inside
of the house. It was quite messy.... :D

Misty Mountains. it was raining and I was pissed.
we had about 20 minutes walk to the nearest station.
in the rain and 6:30 am in the morning with the heavy bags.
Also a 1,5 hours in three different trains. 

So there you go! You still alive there? kicking good? Great! I'll make soon another post about my daily outfits. SO STAY TUNED!!! Oh and we also did a lot of shopping on Oxford Street and Stratford's center. I bought that gray top from TOPSHOP, it was on sale ~20£, and also I bought the cutest My Little Pony underpants from TopShop. I also spent a lot of money in Forever21, bying one maxidress (gray with unsymmetrical hem and stud cross), one short dress with denim bustier and rose patterned, unsymmetrical hem. And one sale top from NEWLOOK and some DVDs including Star Wars 4-6 BOX. AWESOME!

And we didn't get to eat fish and chips. We were supposed to, but at the time it was possible we did not feel like eating something fatty. The weather was fairly good during the whole trip. And sometimes it was even hot! Overall I liked Britain and London very much - especially the people. They were truly kind and warm. So thank you Britain! I rest my case.

And there is one favor I'd like to ask: Could you PLEASE tell me what would you like me to write about? I haven't been active with this blog, since I don't know what to write about. So please help me out here. 

Thank you very much!



★ It's London Calling! ★

I'm a bit ashamed to admit, that I've never been to Britain or London before... It's not that it's too far away (straight flight from Finland takes about 3 hours) or that I wasn't interested in UK, but more like I've never had the time to go there. I've been so busy going to Tokyo and other trips... But now finally me and my dear friend Riina are going to London to stay with our friend Anna, who is studying in London's University.

It's not going to be a long trip, only 4 nights - which me and Riina are going to spend sleeping on their sofas in their living room. Yes, THEIR. Anna lives with 4 or 5 (I never remember) other people: some other Finnish girls and one British boy. It's gonna be interesting... I'm kinda nervous about sleeping in a ''public'' living room, 'cos I'm not sure about in which positions I sleep, and it would be embarrassing if the British boy came to the living room while us sleeping and he saw my butt hanging loose or something.... LOL. and ps. no i don't sleep naked... 

But anyways it's still nice to stay at Anna's place, 'cos we don't have to pay anything for the nights.

We had some serious troubles with booking the flight. I mean I've booked many many flights and I'm not a novice at the matter, but still..... How hard it can be to get a flight from Finland to London - one of the biggest capitals in Europe? well, apparently it's very fucking difficult! first of all a straight flight from Finland would've been much too expensive (500-600€ - notice that the last year's flight to Tokyo was less than 600€), so we had to take a flight with a stop at Copenhagen. I've been to Copenhagen's airport and I liked it - it was compact, fairly small which i like, and the people were kind.

BUT the first flight we booked was already pretty expensive -  the prices went up and down like crazy (about 390€) and after we had booked it the price went up again! We hadn't gotten the reservation number or confirmation yet, and on the next day they raised the price of our flight with more than 150€!!! I mean what the...?? I got so pissed off. I said that I will definitely not pay that much money for a flight to Europe with one stop included. So we cancelled the flight - thank god it was free to cancel it..

On the same day (Friday) I decided to book the flight by myself and I finally found one pretty good :

Leaving on 24.6. 17:30 from Helsinki Airport
Landing on Copenhagen at 18:10 (local time)

Departure at 20:05 from Copenhagen 
Landing on London at 21:05 (local time)

Return Flight: 

Leaving on 28.6. 10:20 from London Heathrow 
Landing on Helsinki at 15:15 (local time, straight flight, flight time 2h 55min)

and with price: 316.90€ / person. 

I'm happy with this flight. Even though it's still kinda expensive, but at least we're saving by living at Anna's place.

I've been to many countries: Sweden, Hungary, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Turkey, Japan, Thailand....... and the list goes on. But nevertheless I'm always excited about traveling! I more likely use my money on traveling than fancy clothes, phones, electronics, etc.

And the more people you can travel with and meet while traveling, the more merrier! 

So, what are your summer plans? Going to foreign countries? or just enjoying the holiday with friends and family? I'm gonna do both...  We have a midsummer festive in Finland this week and I'm gonna spend it with my Sister and her boyfriend - whom are both very dear to me. It's gonna be fun! Maybe we're gonna go to some road trip with a car?

But we'll see next time after my London journey. :) I'M GONNA TRY TO TAKE AS MUCH PHOTOS AS I CAN!!!! this time....... lol. (word: journey always reminds me of Lord of the Rings or Hobbit... So I'm gonna go bare foot like a good hobbit, and defeat the evil! )



Make Up Store : A Big Disappointment

Hey everyone! I'm truly glad to say that the summer is finally here! I'm sitting in front of a fan and enjoying the warmth and sun. I watched the news and they said that the rest of the Europe is battling against floods and cold weather. So I think we Finns should be pretty happy about this weather we have atm. I don't recall any other summer that has had this many extremely warm and sunny days in a row... But I'm not complaining! Even though our dog is having a bit rough time - but cold showers and a fan blowing all the time i think he'll survive! :)

But now back to the topic! So I went to the Make Up Store in Helsinki this one day ( I had a 50€ gift card so I decided to use it and actually buy some expensive make ups, what I usually rarely do!) I Had already checked out from the internet some products that i wanted to buy and i had BIG hopes for them, 'cos I've heard that Make Up Store's products have very good quality!

So This is what I was GOING to buy: 

So all these would have costed 48€ and I was pretty excited about these products! But when I got there (on Thursday morning) all of these products were sold out! Every last one of them. I am obviously too mainstream... But the story doesn't end there, no. Almost all the shelves were half empty (or half full, depending on how optimistic you are). I was truly, truly disappointed! The lady on the counter didn't offer to help me she just sulked there doing something on the computer - probably she was on facebook. DAMN FACEBOOK! Gladly I had my friend with me so I was able to go through the products with her.

I had decided to use the gift card that day, since it was soon to be expired...
So this is what i bought in the end:

Make Up Store: Tanja (shimmer), 14€

Make Up Store: Gardenia, 16€

Make Up Store: Vanilla, 18€
(yes i know the internet site says 16€, but in the shop it was 18€...)

and some mascaras - not obviously from Make Up Store. They were

....and after purchasing an expensive (in my opinion)  nail polish
THIS is what i got!! First of all it wasn't the one I wanted in the
first place - it's a slightly darker color, and now this! 
 And the worst thing was that I threw away the pig paper bag that i got from the shop because i had a grocery store bag and purse, so it was only making my life more difficult and the ticket went in to the garbage bin with the bag, so i couldn't even return or change this damaged one. Honestly! I've never been this unhappy with any store never before! And this is supposed to be high-quality? yeah, right. Never buying anything from Make Up Store again.

one layer of nail polish. I didn't want it to be so glimmering...

And I was also disappointed in the MicroShadow. The color is not appealing on my face and the pigment is not the best what I've seen. I've tried to put some water in it - didn't work out. I mean yes, someone might still like these products and i can't blame her. The brand has a high-value mark on it, and i have heard some good things about it, but I was just so disappointed that I lost my faith in the brand.

I've bought some very low-cost make ups and they've been many times more better than these ones. I think they're not worth the money! It's not always like '' the most expensive ones are the best ''. I have learnt that now... the lipgloss is not bad. It smells and tastes sweet (yes it's important, because i wouldn't want to put something smelly and bad tasting on my lips...... lol)  and it said to give you irresistible lips - and i can grant that: my dog cannot resist my lips after putting on the lipgloss... you decide if that is a good or a bad thing.

but still even though the lipgloss is pretty nice, it is not worth the 16€. I mean you can get as good products with half the price from some basic stores.

I don't want you to get upset about this post. If you like Make Up Store then you should like it even after me mocking it. This is not universal opinion - just mine. I just want to know have you had any experience like  this? Or do you have absolutely the opposite opinion about this store? Please comment and let me know - I'm interested in all the stories!
