Little crafting

Just a quick update now since I can't write in the weekend. We're making a little road trip to my boyfriends summer cottage before it gets way too cold. Anyway, I got home early so I finished and took photos of my recent crafts. I wanted something simple but cute and I love pearls. So a matching necklace and bracelet it is!

Made from an old long pearl necklace and some spare ribbon. I'll still need to clean the ends of those ribbons and position them a bit. The contrast between pearls and ribbons is quite not that strong in real life but still apparent. I like to use both clean white and more muted ivory so I like it.

That's it for today. Happy Halloween!

Like many others, I saw Skyfall yesterday. I wasn't actually very keen on watching it but my friends insisted. I'm more of a old-fashion Bond fan. Well, to cut it short, it was quite okay, just... Hollyvied.

Since this also marked the end of my exam week I wanted to wear something nice. Surprisingly my dress of choice was Rose stained glass. No blouse, how unloli of me but we continued to my friends place so it was more convenient like this. I'm sad I couldn't take picture in the theater, I love it! It's the oldest cinema in Finland and the halls look more like actual theaters with stage replaced by a screen. Lots of gold and bordeaux to match my dress. I just though the staff might not like me carrying big camera to day after premiere show...

Please excuse the expression. Jsk Iw, others offbrand.

On Sunday I met my dear friend. We haven't seen for quite a while so we simply cooked thai food and tried to catch up. I love talking with someone who has such a similar mindset. It's too bad our other friend couldn't come this time.

Pile of tea

Hello again!

In a short time I have acquired quite a collection of tea. I used to have two or three different black or green teas since I hadn't really stumbled upon good shops. It's still not humongous amount, but quite a  lot for one person. Here's my recent additions:

The red one, "Rooibos of happy madams" which was a birthday gift. I haven't opened this one yet.
Top left, black tea with Irish whiskey flavour. I really like it, maybe one day I'll test it with just a bit of actual whiskey.
Middle, green one called Samurai sword. It has hint of cherry, lemon grass and orange peel. Very refreshing, one of my favourites (I love cherry and lemon).
Black bag, vanilla. It has real pieces of vanilla in it. Extremely soft and perfect for winter. Tastes more like warm vanilla than typical tea.
Last one on left, Lolita. It's another flavoured black and if I remember right it has orange peel and flowers. Very delicate and fine taste.

My aunt took me yesterday to our traditional birthday dinner. We went to Strindberg, an old classic place. I really liked it, atmosphere was very comfy but sophisticated with lovely book cases, soft sofas and pillows. And the food was delicious! It was great chance to catch up and discuss things with my aunt, since I haven't seen her for a while. She hasn't seen me decked in lolita yet and probably isn't very familiar with it. I wanted to look a bit fancier so I put together simple coord.
JSK is the same IW as before, othes offbrand. I really should start taking accessory pictures. I had pretty wooden, autumn coloured leaves for earrings. I really like them, they're gift from years back and handmade.

20 roses

What is it with professors deciding to dump all assignments at once with deadlines close by?

Anyway, last week was my birthday. Saw good friends and we did go to Kakkugalleria. The buffet was awesome, so many good cakes it was hard to choose. I really love cheesecakes and citrusy flavours. Nothing wrong with chocolate, of course. I just find it kind of more... basic. Something I always tend to do. And now I have huge craving for mud cake and it's too late to bake...

I got some useful and pretty things along with more tea (nice, sweet Rooibos). Also, my godparents gave me this huge bouquet with 20 roses. It was funny watching my mom be half amused and half annoyed since you should put uneven number of flowers. I divided them into two vases so I would have roses in other rooms too. Sadly they wither so fast... One of my skirts matched well with the roses so I took some fast and unimaginative photos with them. Unfortunately I still don't have that pod and managed to fail all full outfit shots =(.

Blouse: Pretty-pretty
Skirt: Me
Bow (It is a bow): IW
Others: Offbrand

I may upload some pictures of my Disney-theme sitsi-outfit on Sunday. We'll see what becomes of it.

Wet leaves

It's been crazily busy at school lately. But at weekend I'll celebrate my birthday together with a friends who's is close to mine. We though about going to Kakkugalleria (Cake Gallery) where they have a cake buffet. Looking forward to it! Unfortunately I can't wear loli on my actual birthday since I'm stuck in lab once again. Maybe I'll take a little detour home and visit Ounce though... 

Today I cheated a little and changed clothes after I got home. I seriously want to make an Autumn shoot but I still haven't got the pod from my boyfriend. Hanging camera on trees is not fun. So today I got some photos with leaves before it rains even more and everything is absolutely soaked or fallen off.

JSK: Innocent World
Blouse : Pretty-Pretty clothing
Everything else offbrand.

I love that JSK. It's really hard to capture on camera without real close-up but it has moss-green stripes on it. Also, excuse my little crooked beret.
