1. We're moving! I swear I'll do a proper interior post and talk about the whole thing properly, but there's simply been too much stuff to get packed that I haven't had the time to take pics or anything!

2. You know me and my fiance's been having a flea market table for one week now right? We'll since we still had shitloads of stuff to sell, we decided to take a table for another week. You can't believe what a pain it was to move all the remaining stuff across the hall and onto our next table. -,- BUT guess how much money we've made in that one week! 240 euros!!! We've agreed to use that to all the expensive decorating shit people have in all sorts of gorgeous vintage homes (9*^*9)

Kirppis, round II

Yaaaaay today we went to arrange new stuff to our flee market table and learned that we'd made almost 180 euros in only five days! Srsly I dunno what's wrong with the flee markets these days - people sell really crappy stuff for prizes so high you could buy it cheaper in the store! Obviously we did not do that, most of things were sold for like 1/2-1 euros... I did celebrate our success by buying a few gorgeous things I found!

Gorgeous orange buttoned shirt

In the afternoon we went to have a BBQ party at my mom's :3 It was really fun and she'd made Greek food! I was really sick tho, so sorry for my lack of make-up. God my face hurts....
Nomnomnom~ Later on we took some pics with my lil sis and that said, here's my outfit from today!

Boring post = boring

Soooo nothing's happened much since my last post - just been watching Dr. Who and drawing really. I've finished my designs for this fashion design competition I plan on entering though, but I dare not put any pics of them in here. YET at least.

We've been busy organizing a flee market table with my fiance and thank god people are buying our stuff! There's so much old clothes and random stuff that I don't even remember having that I don't even care about getting money from them. I just want them gone. I found some nightgowns from like my 7th grade or smth.

But! Today I got to go outside with my lil' sis! We had planned on going shopping but since neither of us really didn't plan on buying anything, we just grabbed a bite and browsed for hours. It was really fun, save for the teenzy weenzy thing - I GOT FUCKING SICK. Srsly, who gets the flu in the summer???? So I was sneezing all the way, blowing my nose every second and now after all the walking I feel like crap. Whyyyyy oh why did it have to start todayyyy?? D:
However if you know me at all, you'll not probably be surprised to hear that even though I don't have any money right now, I still bought something, lolz.
I got meself a new red lipstick since I lost the first one somewhere. Probably Berlin but you never know. Then I got this lovely aubergine that had this petal look skirt from H&M sale rack. Additionally one of my former classmates was selling her stuff away so I relieved her of

This originally Carlings - blouse

and this lovely red belt :3

PunyuPunyu I got your tail

About 1,5 years ago we decided to get a cat. We went to a local shelter and walked about but nothing seemed to fit us. Then, just by chance we happened to come across some quarantined newcomers that had been hidden away in the back. There were two russian blues, taken from their previous owner by the police because they had been neglected and possibly abused. They were so cute and took a liking to us from first glance so we just had to adopt them both.

Our sweet, sweet Latte ;___; she was so skinny...

And Mocha, our cute little granny-cat<3

They've been treasures, really. Never any problems with furniture or litter boxes. Poor things were so malnourished it took us almost four months to get Mocha's stomach to adjust to solid food. We gave them kitten food for a while so it'd been easier for them to gain weight a bit. It was a bit too easy for Latte to be honest :D Nowadays she's such a fatty, she eats everything from avocados to butter.
Mocha on the other hand has always been a bit weird; it took me a whole year to get her to get used to being picked up and still I have to do it in a certain way or she'll freak out. For the first 1/2 year she wouldn't let anyone touch her back half. The two are both terrified of hoovers and brooms and loud footsteps. Mocha's my little baby and doesn't like anyone else, really. She sleeps next to me every night and gets really depressed whenever I leave. Now that she's gotten older I think she's gotten signs of dementia. There are days when she clearly is confused and jumpy and doesn't know where she is. Thankfully it doesn't take much to keep her reminded of things. If I just remember to get her to eat if she refuses to leave the bedroom and go scratch her a bit so she knows who's making noises.

It just gives me shivers when I think that these little fluff balls have not been fed, petted and most likely have been kicked or something. People who mistreat animals should be given a high five. In the face. With an axe.

Just look at our beloved cuties now!<3

Cyberesque Facial Fact

Okkk, so as I told you guys in the previous post, lotsa things have changed since I last actively posted in my blog. Including my looks ofc lol

ANYWAY so in this post imma talk a little about my piercings. Since ear piercings aren't that much of a deal nowadays I'll just skip to the main thing .... LE FACE.
I'd been planning on getting a piercing for about, what, five years now? I really think even the african tribes with all sorts of body mods are really pretty and I use a lot of jewelery anyway so why not on the face as well? Now you're gonna be like "well stupid, you can get a piercing without a parent's permission at 15, why'd you wait that long". Well because I wasn't going to rely on my non-existent intellect at 15, that's why. I said to myself I can get it, after I turn 18, and if I still want it then, I'll know it's not just a fling. Cus you never know what's gonna happen when you go pokin' at your face and since I've got a few scars on my face already, I wanted to be sure I wasn't gonna regret anything.
So finally last winter I scoured the interwebz for different sorts of piercing options and used small diamond add-on's to determine which one would suit my face. I wanted it to be a bit on the special side too, and I even considered cheek piercings at some point. A couple of my friends have those and they look so cute, like dimples! ( I like to call them smiley bumps ) But it was not to be. Instead I found my true luv, the cyberbite <3
Info: Cyber bite is when you combine labret (lover lip middle) and medusa (upper lip middle)

This is just after the medusa...

...and here fully healed and all good!                 

I know the healing of a hole in your face is individual and with some it takes ages, but in my case, there was hardly any swelling, pain, stuff coming out or anything. It basically was pretty much the same from start till now.  I did freak myself out by watching those horrible youtube videos about infections and piercing in general but eventually when you think of it, most of those are done without proper equipment or left untreated so don't shit yourself if you end up viewing those. Since these were my first facial piercings I took them one at a time. Doesn't cost any more and in case you do swell to look like a duck, at least you still are able to eat.
But yeah, even though many people were against me having these but eventually I got loads of compliments :3 Even though my parents don't approve piercings either, I did tell them before taking mine. I recommend the same for everyone. So if you're planning on getting a piercing, consider your pros and cons. Future job, peoples opinions, your style and your own readiness. 
My big dream in the future is to have elven ears! They do it in the UK already but I don't think it's wise to get them while the pro's are still learning the best ways to do it... But still, elven ears!!!! *3*

Now enjoy some hawt piercing and body mod pics!

Ahoy mateys!

Heyy there everyone!

Finally I got meself to restart my blog! It's been ages and so much stuff has changed, so I'll probably have to do a few updates about the situation as it is now lol.

The most major thing that's happened to me since I last posted is that I got into Lahti Institute of Design to study fashion design. Wohoo! I'm now down one year and boy what a year it has been! There's so much stuff to do, so many opportunities. And even though I was sure I would never learn anything fast enough or well enough, when I looked back to the very first things we did when entering the school year, I realized how far I've come.

I got to participate in my very first fashion show and worked in the back as a dresser during the show, switching the outfits on my model. It was really hectic, but the show was really a success in every way and we got loads of compliments!

Here's the complete video of the fashion show and my piece in it! Hope you liek!

One of the most distressing things for me was to learn how to use Adobe programs. But luckily we had loads of chances to learn and eventually I got good scores on our course on digital fashion illustration. 

Here is my final assignment! We had to take one of our already illustrated designs from a previous course and do a presentation picture of it with several tool from Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.
