nettle crepes

Oh, I'm sooo sorry I havn't posted for a while, but I have been taking care of my sick boyfriend. He got some really bad stomach flue on sunday and it lasted until yesterday. And I have this annoying thing, that everytime some close person gets sick I start getting the same symptoms even though I don't really have the bug myself. My mom has the same thing, we call it empathy sickness:D I've been feeling nauseated all week. Actually that wasn't true, everytime I did something that took my mind away from my throwing up boyfriend I felt just fine.. I have a serious hypochondria!:DD

Well anyway, today we made nettle crepes (picked the nettles ourselves! I got burned a few times even though I wore gloves:(( ) with my sister and here's some picture evidence of the matter.

Nettle crepes, strawberry jam, whipped cream and mom's homemade macarons. Seriously delicious!!

Have a good weekend you all! I will get back to you tomorrow:3

Love, Nina

doves flowers and mint

Ruffle blouse from Monki
Cardi, sunnies and canvas pumps H&M
Shorts Cheap Monday (I have cut 'em from long jeans) 
This is what I'm wearing at the moment. Soon gonna change to something more suitable for sun bathing though, since we are going to the beach! The weather is just perfect today.:3

I can't stand if I don't have any flowers in myu apartment. Pink roses and carnations are my favorite.

Now I'm going to make some chocolate covered srtawberries and homemade ice tea for our beach picnic. Yum! Pictures of picnic preparations and the actual beach hang out coming later today or at the latest tomorrow!

Ps. I'm super excited because I am going to take a tattoo next monday! Yipes!

party gear

Lace dress Zara
Faux leather leggings Gina Tricot
Fringe jacket, sunnies and ballerinas H&M
Bag Topshop
(haven't decided on the accessories yet) 
This is pretty much what I have planned wearing to the b-day party tonight! I would have chosen heels and a smaller bag but since it's such a nice weather today we are gonna move the party outside before clubbing and I'm not too interested in traipsing through soft-grounded parks in sinking heels. The bag is for all the outside gear like warmer clothes and the liquids, haha!

I couldn't think of anything original and cool for the present so I just bought some sparkling wine and crafted a new tag for it. Now it's a present and a card at the same time. And I think the map reminds of me since I am the biggest map-monster ever!

I'm not gonna take my camera with me because i'm afraid I'll smash it when too tipsy. But if someone else has one and I get them to send some pics to me I'll definetely share 'em with you here:3 Have a great saturday everyone!

Love, Nina

sweet lemon

Bought some summery sweet lemon products and a mango shower gel from The Body Shop

Found those missing flip-flops for my beach set, yay! Also bought these super cute flower canvas pumps and a pair of mint green hair-clips. All from H&M

 An anchor pendant from Pieces

 Shopping outfit.
Chinos, blazer and canvas pumps from H&M
White bag from Lindex
Tomorrow is my friend's b-day party and I'm super excited because I see her so rarely since she lives in another city, and secondly because I haven't been clubbing for so long! I hope it will be a great night so my bar-traumas don't get worse:D I'm gonna go finish her present now, Laters!

it's all, not one, I love everything

Went shopping for some beach essentials for the summer today! I already had bought one cute hat and one set of bikinis recently but that was obviously not enough! After todays findings I'm only missing a darker, maby sailor-style pair of bikini, beach towel and some summery-coloured flip-flops! So here are my shoppings and little something I crafted today. And as a grand finale a beautiful rainbow I saw yesterday when coming home from visiting my folks. Mom saw it first from the car and she pulled over and forced me to go outside and take a picture of it.. I felt like such a tourist.. lol.

Straw bag Pieces
Both scarves H&M
Both hats Lindex
T-bar sandals Topshop
Both bikinis  H&M
Sunglasses H&M

down came the rain, and washed the spider out

It was rainy again this morning, so I had to carry my Spiderman umbrella around all day. When we took these pictures the sun had came out and the dark clouds were long gone, but now I had another purpose for my spidey!

It was super windy, so of course, flying!

Well.. the wind didn't take me up but I had fun trying! It almost blew me to the ground, though..

I have spiderman socks on my feet too. I'm so embarrassing:D

Besides jumping outside with spidey, I have been reading fashion magazines and I also started a new book I borrowed from the library today. It's The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera. Have anyone read it? How was it?

I'm almost dozing off here so yeah, my bed's calling me real loud! Laters!

Love, Nina

everything's so... fragile

Fat Segal-Whitecap Widow

A track from Skins (<3) season two, when Naomi and Emily are on the rooftop and Emily finds out Naomi cheated on her. Love that scene! That also happens to be a great early morning gray rain staring song!:D And as it is very gray and rainy outside, and it's only nine in the morning I get this gloomy and melancholic feeling just watching out the window with a cup of tea in my hand and a warm blanket on my shoulders. I am NOT a morning person and I usually never wake up before ten a.m. but maby that's just why I think early morning is the most beautiful and emotive time of the day. Becouse it's not something I get to see and experience every day:DD! The best feeling ever is to party outside all night and still be awake when the sun is starting to rise. Soooo beautiful! And why am I awake so early today? Well, a certain teacher of mine apparently forgot to tell me that the classes are cancelled today. It was oh, so nice to go to there in the rain before 8 a.m. and realize after waiting for almost an hour that no one's coming. Damn you!

My sisters went to Helsinki last saturday and they brought me few dresses back! Thanks<3 This one's from Monki

What do you think about the dresses? I really loved all of them! If you can't see the dresses clearly enough from these pictures (had to take 'em with my sisters camera since I forgot mine home, hers is a bit older than mine so the pictures don't have quite the quality I would like to maintain in this blog) just click the links I put on the captions!

 I think I'm gonna try watch cartoons from tv if they're still on, or maby I'll start the second season of Modern Family! Just downloaded it, loved the first season so much! Such a great show. Bye then!

ps. The most annoying feeling: tired but not sleepy! I wish I could just go back to sleep! My eyes feel like they weigh a thousand pounds, but I have stared the rain too long to fall asleep anymore! And it doesn't help to this exhausted feeling that I stayed up way too late last night, watching the ice hockey world championsip finals.. We won by the way:D Go Finland!! Took only 16 years to bring the trophy home but well, better late than never!

Love, Nina
