A LITTLE REQUEST


  Somewhere in the relatively near future my blog is going to undergo some big changes. I am taking my time with this one, though, because I want the outcome to be something that I personally love. As you might remember I did talk about my blogging goals at some point. And now it's finally time for some action! So, my friends, I'd love to hear what you especially like about my blog. What are your favourite kind of posts? Is there something you'd like me to do more often? Why do you come here? I sincerely want to hear what you have to say so I can create a place where we can all enjoy ourselves. :)

HAIR DOWN


  I've been missing these days! These days when you can keep hair down without it immediately turning into a flat and frizzy mess. Or my mane will always be frizzy in a way but you know, now it's in somehow controllable state. I washed and braided it before bed and I like the kind of "sheepdog" finish. And this hair in the pics had already been outside for several hours in extremely rainy and windy weather. So, I'm impressed. ^^

  And.... How perfect are these curls for beaching? Like "surfer girl goes to Coachella and next day wakes up in a van with a hangover and somehow still manages to look cool" -curls. Love it! :3

BRAIN FUNCTION ZERO


  No idea where it came from. Poorly slept nights or some super early spring allergies? Who knows but my head has been hazy as hell. Eventually it got to a point where it was difficult to even manage such a simple thing as talking to people. Not fun when you need to, for example, serve customers... But a little game night with friends gave my brain its long needed break. It's amazing to have people around with whom you can just be your own awkward, embarrassing and silly self. Those kind of creatures are rare and I'm lucky to have a few as my friends. :)

  Tonight's goal, though, is to go to bed before ten and hopefully that will help with my head. Don't know if I'm becoming a granny 'cause my ultimate sleeping routine seems to be from 8pm to 7am. Or even 6am! Neat. But days do feel longer when you wake up early so guess that's only a good thing. ^^ I'm rambling, good night!

BUILDING SUMMER WARDROBE


  I survived last week! Just needed a full day Netflix marathon on Sunday and now I'm packed with energy again. :) Started this week with spring cleaning and putting together my spring/summer wardrobe. Keywords for this summer's style are natural, soft and relax. There's a lot of stripes and blues, which is odd since I've always thought those are basically symbolising boredom, especially together... But this year I've kinda realized how they can be used without going too "sailor chic" and how to keep it relax and earthy, the way I like it.

  Seems that I've now found my true summer style. And I love that I now also have a colour scheme so everything will go together. In recent years I've just bought pieces I like without really thinking about the big picture. There's nothing as frustrating as having a lot of clothes but nothing to wear since nothing really goes together. But anyway, I still need to get a couple of dresses, maybe a pair of shorts or a skirt, then my wardrobe is complete. ^^ Can't wait for summer! Hope it will be hot as hell. ♥

IT'S OPEN, IT'S DONE


  Recovering from yesterdays shift. We had an inventory night and it was almost midnight when I got home. Dark circles are real. But! Something more exciting happened last weekend: our Studio Asema has now officially opened it's doors. On Saturday we were open for the public from 12.00 to 17.00 and then in the evening we had "the real" party. ;) The daytime event was lovely but it was pure greatness to celebrate this privately with our friends. Live music, fairy lights, wine and laughter. ♥ Yas, it was nice.

  For some reason I did feel a bit under the weather on Sunday... Fancy that. Needed the day for relaxing anyway so it didn't really matter. Back to this week! This week is only about survival. It's fully booked (except Sunday, yay!) and totally terrifying. But now it's already Wednesday so tonight I'll be halfway there. :D Wish me luck, see you on the other side... or on Friday.

LOADING BATTERIES


  Oh my. Trying my best to restore some energy right now. This has been a crazy week and more craziness coming up, starting tomorrow. Today everyone was preparing for tomorrow's long waited opening day. And I really need to go to bed soon, so I won't be totally dead and useless. Next week again is fully booked. Work, work, work and some more work. But then the next two weeks after that I've planned to spend only with my thesis. Hundred cups of coffee, bed, computer and total isolation. Sounds like a vacation to me, lol.

(P.s. pics in the first pics by Helena Eslon, last ones are Iiro's :3)

NEARLY THERE...


  Somehow this feels just so absurd. We've been working for this for a couple of months now and... we are nearly there. On next Saturday our studio will open its doors, officially. Even though we have already been doing some stuff in there, the opening still feels like the "real" beginning. Oh, and if you happen to feel like popping by on Saturday, feel free! You can find more info about that on our Facebook page. ;)

  This is what I've been doing lately besides working. It has been such a fun project with fun people. :) And hey! Encouraged by a reader I decided to leave my Finnish translations from my posts, at least for now. Hope you don't mind. :) This does save me some time and for some reason it has become a bit weird for me to write in Finnish after writing in English... Don't know but anyway, now I need to get some sleep... Although I'm not sure if I can actually get any after three coffees. :D But I'll have a try, bye.
