New shoes & MAIL

Perjantaina kotiuduin ja käväsimä kanssa puolivälissä matkaa Torniossa På Gränsen. Oulussa kattelin ennen lähtöä, että mukavasti oli alkanu puoleen hintaan-alennukset, mutta onneksi pääsin käymään Torniossa.( ´∀`) Vähän siellä oli suomalaisia liikkeellä, enimmäkseen ruottalaisia ja venäläisiä, jokka ei oikein englantiakkaan osannu.
Ikeassa en muuten päässy käymään kun se oli kiinni. Olisin kyllä halunnu käyä sielä ihan vaan kiertämässäki, kun sieltä saa joskus ihan kivoja ideoita sisutukseen tms. ja siellä on kaikkea hauskaa, esim. piristävän värisiä pussinsulkimia.
Jos btw verrataan tämän På Gränsenin vaateliikkeitten valikoimaa Rovaniemen tai Oulun liikkeisiin, huomaa ainaki, että tavaraa on enemmän. Joskus on sattunut, että mitä ei Roissa ole, niin jos Torniossa on sattunut käymään myöhemmin, on voinu löytyä. Eniweis suosittelen siellä joskus käyntiä, ja Ruottin puolella käymistä kanssa.
Tällästa kuitenkin nyt sitte ongin mukaan.

On Friday I returned home at last. Halfway home we stopped in Tornio and went to the På Gränsen shopping center. When I left Oulu I noticed that the sales had started and I'm happy that we visited the mall. ( ´∀`) There was quite a few Finnish people moving around, but mostly Swedish and Russian people who couldn't spoke English at all.
Ikea was closed so I couldn't go there. I would've wanted to, 'cause often you can get great ideas from there to interior design and there's always something cheery little things for example different coloures bread pouch closures.
You should sometime visit Tornio's mall and Ikea, 'cause often there's a lot more stuff than in larger town shops.
But, these things I bought.

very vintage styled bracelet


Nyt löysin ne kengät ! Ei ole ruskeat niinku olisin toivonu löytäväni, mutta kelpaa kärjen kapenevan mallin ja nauhallisuuden takia. Mutta minua mietityttää tosi paljon noitten pohja. Siis mitä ihmettä se on? Korossa oli kyllä joku muoviläppä, mutta kaikki muu pohjaa on jotain ihmeen.... en ees keksi oikeanlaista sanaa kuvaamaan !Joten mietinpähän vaan, että katon miten pohja kestää käytössä ja jos ei kestä paljon pskaakaan, niin vaihdan pohjan tai jotain. Noista en niin nopeasti luovu jos kuluu pohjat puhki ja muut osat kengästä kestää. Kerranki halvalla nätit kengät. ヽ(o`皿′o)ノ


I found the shoes ! Even though they're not brown like I hoped to find, they're just fine ! Thanks to the tapering tip and the shoelaces. BUT I really wonder wtf are the soles made of? There's some kind of sole in the heel, but everything else of the sole is made of some material that I don't even know and I wonder will they last the use.
So, If they wont, I've thought of replacing the soles into something what'll take the pain of walking. I won't just throw them away if everything else in the shoes will contain whole. ヽ(o`皿′o)ノ


Kuitenki. . . silloin ku olin Oulussa, postissa oli tullu paketti mulle Ichibankaolta ! Dun dun duun~

Anyways. . . during the time I was in Oulu, I received a package from Ichibankao !


Which contained these items.


Some sample from Ayura, I guess it's skin care sample, K-Palette's 1 day tattoo black eyeliner and Dolly Wink's No.1 Dolly Sweet lashes.

instructions, very nice



I tried them on today, but couldn't take a good picture whit them so sorry, no photo. Oh, and the glue (picture below) what came along with the eyelashes was just awful ! It didn't attach the lashes hard enough and only blinking the eyes made them fall of.
Also I'm suspicious how many use times the eyelashes will take, 'cause the base is very thin. I'm meaning the string what on are the lashes attached.
cute, but useless
Many of the products that I've ordered from Japan is well-packed into plastic. I guess that there is some kind of recycling mark in the packages, but it still bothers me. Why can't they be packaged into cardboard boxes or anything like that?
On the other hand in Japan, there's surely good recycling methods. At least I hope. Lot of people there uses these cosmetics, and the amount of trash would be just awful to see. But I'm just wondering.

Flea-market founds

Hei ! Ekana haluan kertoa kuinka koko Oulun reissu on ollu elämyksiä täynnä ! Olen mm. käyny autoa pesemässä, että itte istunu sisällä. Olen leiponu keksejä ja ensimmäisen satsin paistuttua ku paiskasin toisen erän uuniin, samaa leivinpaperia oleva alusta leimahti liekkeihin, eikä lämpötiloja tms. muutettu sitä ennen. Eikä ollu ees kuuma uuni, kuin 175 asteinen !

Hello ! Firstly I wanna tell you how this Oulu trip has been quite an adventure ! I've inter alia been in a car while it was cleaned in a car wash. I've baked  cookies in two tin plates, after the first plate the second's cooking paper burned. Even when it was same kind of paper as the first one and I didn't change the heat of the oven or anything ! 

Mutta kuitenki, tästä kirpparikierroksesta. Eli nyt olen saanu kuvatki muokattua... olen muokannu jo näitä ainaki puoltoista tuntia ja haluttais nukkumaan, mutta ajattelin nyt tehä tämän pois alta. (´ω`*)
Lauantaina kävin kaupungilla, Järkikirppiksellä (sijaitsee Kärkkäisen vieressä) ja Second Hand Storessa (keskustassa), sunnuntaina sitte taasen Paljekirppiksellä (joka oli jossain...).

But anyways, about my flea-market maraton. Now I've finished editing the photos, after hour and a half and now I would like to go to sleep. But I'll do this first. (´ω`*)
On Saturday I went to town, Järki flea-market (which is next to Kärkkäinen), and Second Hand Shop (in center). Sunday I went to Paljea flea-market (which was somewhere...).

from Second Hand Store 2,50 €

For a while now I haven't found anything more lolita-ish blouse (or anything else) as this ! I totally love it ! The lace under the collar is transparent and it's almost perfect. It's sadly little too loose but maybe I could diminish it.
from Second Hand Store 0,50 €

Also transparent. Little polka dots makes it really 50's style. I'm pretty amazed that this colored shirt would ever catch my interest. After all year or two backwards I was into everything black and punk. Actually I still am, but my interest has turned into gothic lolita.
from Palje feal-market 15 €

Second heels of my life ! The old ones are like. . . four-years-old ! They're very easy to walk with.

from Järki flea-market 10 €

Did I say something about the punky style that I don't like it that much anymore? Just forget about that ! This 
was quite a discovery. I wasn't that sure at first, but I warmed up for it in the end. I can imagine really gothic or rock styled gyaru. What'd you think?

They were the f-m things. These are just random stuff that I bought, needed it, or not. (≧∇≦)
random market 9,90 €

Finally a good calendar. I find it much clearer when the weeks are on one spread and days goes down like these. Sorry lol had to put my birthday there. 
random market 6,95 €

Can't find words good enough. It's useful and it's cute. I'll strap my keys there, sometimes maybe phone too if I need to. 

from KappAhl 14 €

This is the shirt what I mentioned before. I found an old sale-coupon from my wallet to KappAhl while ago, which gave 25% of from every normal priced product, and I saw this shirt earlier in the store, which was must to get. It brings my mind pirates.\(○^ω^○)/ Maybe I'll use it next halloween with lolita. I'll be pirate-loli then~!
it was raining so heavily
It has been an awful day today ! It has rained pretty much the whole day, except now the sky is clear.
Well, anyways. Tomorrow I'll start backing and soon will be going back home.

I will post more then, or maybe not until in Ivalo. While after Midsummer I'll head there and won't come back from there for a week at least.
I'm of to sleep, so bye !

Anyways, Carita organized this great meet up at funfair, where we went to Ferris wheel and ghost train (whoo spooky), bought some candy, ice cream and cotton candy. I had so much fun, 'cause this was my first (gyaru) meetup~!
I don't know what to tell you guys more, let the pics talk~
Oh btw, you can see the new violet shirt, that I bought from KappAhl. Later more about that.

After this Kata had to go and Biri, Emppu, Carita and me remained.

Carita, Emppu & Biri


Heading home. We were waiting for rides to home and sat outside the fanfair.
I've been so so busy, that I haven't had time to uptade, sorry. I've went to flea-markets and found some nice things, what I'll show you in the next post. And that I'll be doing... maybe tomorrow or on Wednesday.
On Thursday or Friday I'll be going home, via På Gransen- shopping center and IKEA.
So bye for now~

inspirations☆

WARNING! Lots of pictures!
Today I'm bored and I want to show you these pics of different styles that inspire me.
I've noticed that during few months backward, more girly styles has taken over me. I'm more girly than ever. I think. (;≧∇≦)
Hope you enjoy~

Gyaru
-style:
I love the eyelashes and the whole eye make-up ! I guess those were it that made me interested in the fashion.
I don't care about the categories that much, and I like
mostly every looks: girly and mature styled gyaru, except agejo-thing, sorry.
My idols are inter alia
Kumiko Funayama, Tsubasa Masuwaka, Kurumi Hanji and Rui Kotobuki.
Here's some pics




still like the black and dark




Gothic Lolita & Aristocrat-sytle:
I see gothic lolita rather elegant, mature and and very festive style. I still use lolita clothes in parties or fancy occasions, mostly because is no good to wear the clothes here, where I live (yes, again this babling). I wait moving to bigger city so I can wear this beautiful style as an everyday outfit, or when I'm in "the mood".
I use other lolitas, not models or such, as my inspirations. Especially
Halktia, Mimi Elizabetha, Rosa Nitida and Siriusc. Oh but ! Manamu is one of my idols too !
And pictures

Too hot!

Greetings from Oulu. It's hot. Really hot.( ̄へ ̄)
 Sorry that I don't have any photos from the time here yet, 'cause my camera died on the way. It turned out that  yesterday I jumped on the buss 4:30 am. 4 hours and 30 minutes on. Felt like crap after that, although it wasn't the longest ride to somewhere.
 I planned to take photos from the way here, but batteries of the camera went out, so couldn't do that.

 Anyways my cat found (the day before yesterday) a funny place to sleep outside. And that's was our flowerbed. It's pretty feral nowadays, there's lot of weed and grass.


Next week I'll be going to the town, if the weather will be good. And next Thursday I'm going to go to a gyaru meet up, which is organized by her.

Now I'm of to swim ! Bye ☆

About the last few days☆

Hyvää kesäpäivää kaikille !  On ollu ihmeen lämmintä nämä pari päivää. Alkaa ihan epäilyttämään että onkohan tämän kesän helteet sitte tässä. (・ω・、) Vai onko joku ollu nyt jo niin huono-onninen, että ei ole aurinkoa vielä nähnykkään?
Tuntuu vähän kummalliselta yhtäkkinen helle ku on monta kuukautta lunta takana ja keholla ja mielelläki menee vielä hetki ennen ku tähän ees tottuu.
Mutta ! Kuvathan aina kertoo enemmän kuin sanat, niin näytänpä menneen viikon kuvina. ☆

Good sunny day everyone ! It have been amazingly warm these last couple days. I wonder if they'll be only ones for this summer. (・ω・、)
The hot weather feels really funny after the long winter and it also takes time when the body and mind gets used to this.
But ! I'll show you few pictures from thing I've done past days. Pictures tell more than words, right?

Drinking tea from pretty teacup.

Crooked house in Ivalo.

Siro-dog at Alajärvi.


I'm surprised that I could took this good picture from Siro. She normally is always moving around like hell.


Hand-made bracelet bought from Russian lady.

Simple nails for summer.

At home there was a nice surprise. My cactus is blooming after two years.

Stuffed red peppers.
Day after yesterday we barbequed, but as an vegetarian I ate tofu, red peppers, zucchini and tuna (I still eat fish like salmon and tuna fish). I made four with different fillings, in all four there was garlic tasted creme bonjour and tuna fish, but one was filled with zucchini and tofu, one with mushroom and tofu, mushroom and zucchini aaaaand so one~ They were really good.

~.:. ☆ .:.~

What I've done today, well, planted flowers, went to jog, lifted heavy pots. Oh, btw, tomorrow I'm finally continuing my driving lessons and after that I'll get my hair dyed (just the root growth).Next Monday I should already be in Oulu and I'm wondering how I'll get there when the buses isn't moving than on Friday and Sunday. I changed the student card so that I could get 50 % off from the buss ticket. It was meant to be changed last year, but I never got it done. ヽ(  ̄д ̄;)ノ
I also wish I've time to visit in Helsinki this summer. Last time I went there was. . . last year in September i guess. Only couple days, 'cause it was school at that time. 10 hour in a train plus 2 hours in the car, alone. Oh those memories. ( ̄▽ ̄)ノ
Aaanyways. Off to bed so that I can wake up early tomorrow !

Oh and btw, do you guys have any plans for this summer? Or do you ever make any? ヾ(@^▽^@)ノ
