Preparing for WGT

Hello! A week passed since my last post. Weird how the time runs this quickly, but then again I've had all kind of nice affairs. A few days ago we went to play mini golf with me beloved and it was a lot of fun and the day before we paid a visit to a market which was arranged here last week. One night we were sitting on a lake's shore when it was such a beautiful weather after the work and yesterday I went to see one dwelling which is on sale. 

 My summer vacation started yesterday and Wave Gotik Treffen is behind the corner. I have two-week holiday now and two weeks later. Our flight leaves  on Thursday and we will come back on Tuesday night. Hope everything goes well. We will travel via Berlin also this year. Four full days in Germany + those travelling days. 
Not sure if you have seen this skirt before here. I bought it a year ago without proving it from Germany and it pointed out to be a bit tight. Now I have lost a few kilos and it fits much better. I love the pleated skirts, I've always liked them. 
It has been again quite difficult to decide how to dress at WGT and my suitcase is still unfinished. I have chose the garments, but accessories are still without opting. I won't update my blog during the journey so you will see the outfits when I come back, but I will update my Instagram if you want to keep up with. 

 Happy days to you all!

New black dress for summer

I managed to do an unexpected finding the other day while visiting a clothing store: a shorts dress which caught my eye! Before I couldn't imagine to wear a garment like this and to be honest I visited glancing this a few times before I made a decision of buying. At first I thought it is the normal dress, but when I took a closer view I realized there are shorts instead of a skirt part. The dress haunted in my mind so badly that I had to go and get it and besides it fits me perfectly.  I also thought that I could have made it myself, but then again I don't like sewing of chiffon too much and I wanted to get it on immediately when the weather is suitable for it right now. I'm quite convinced I will wear this a lot in the coming months.

Åbo

I disappeared to the countryside for the weekend and spent my time by taking a bunch of black and white photographs. That's kind of an institution every time and now it was fairly vernal and nice weather so it was nice to hang out outdoors.

Here is my outfit from Saturday and actually I wore it also on Sunday when  we drove to Turku. 
An old skater dress which I've worn a lot and it starts to show on material. I really like the model and fabric and I consider to sew the similar version if only some nice fabric is found.
So I paid a visit to Turku after a loooong time. Okay last year I visited twice a harbor, but I haven't visited a downtown for years? I didn't remember that the church is this impressive and huge. (when I was a kid, my mom always said "some day you will get hitched there. I guess she has lost her hope for that already) We had just a short visit so I wasn't able to take the pictures, but perhaps I try to go there again. I would like to visit a castle, prison and Aboa Vetus museum. It's interesting, I used to visit there quite often, but since I moved to Tampere I stopped visiting. I didn't like so much Turku before, but now after a long break the whole city opened to me in the new light! (but I still wouldn't like to move there :D)

A short post, but nothing special has happened expect that my fucking ear is again septic and I can't hear properly and that really sucks! Yesterday I was teaching a new employee and that was really awkward when you can't hear normally and the voice sounds odd. Hope this goes over soon.

Walk through the shadows and light

On Thursday afternoon the weather was like my mood; A slightly dismal and gloomy, but also luminous at times. I'd call that for a borderline. Being between two totally different worlds and feelings and not to be sure how to choose. Sometimes I enjoy being blue, but that's also frightening because I don't want that the feeling follows me from day to another and to another. Melancholy feeds my soul and I will always be a captive of dark thoughts. 
We were wandering at the downtown and paid a visit to a one lovely coffee place where I have visited a few times before. It's somehow the really cozy place and not that modern as a interior as the other cafeterias here. It reminds me of the middle Europe like the whole street which leads you there. I don't know how many times I have captured this view through a lens, but obviously it enthralls me and I can't give it a miss.

I was wearing a long skirt after a long time and it actually felt a bit weird. And as you can see, it was snowing... though it's May. A jacket is from Queen of Darkness. I bought it in our first WGT visit. 

This day was perfect to end by drinking a glass of cheap red wine and read one book that based on a tragic story.

When the light of chosen has died it is time to pay back for their crimes

An outfit from yesterday. I found my ancient collar a while ago when I was cleaning the wardrobes and other lockers. I bought it when I was a high school girl so this happened years and years ago... and I haven't worn it for years.  I have been about to throw it away many times, but some strange feeling inside me has told to keep it just in case. Now I have been very fascinated by it after wearing it. I remember that I had another collar with smaller rivets, but I guess I threw it away. 
Pants are from Actual pain, shoes from K-kenkä and pullover which is lovely is from H&M. 
I've been looking for suitable tattoo artist for my next picture and found a few potential options. Can't wait for getting more ink.

I'll love you even beyond this mortal coil You are a vision in the soil

I wasn't able to avoid Nyx cosmetic's shelf today while visiting the downtown. Those tempting colorful products catch my eyes nearly always when I pass by them. I find Nyx is quite good brand when it comes price and quality. I own a lipstick, foundation, concealer and some contour products and they all work fine. Now I ended up buying a lipstick, eye shadow and brow contour pencil. I purchase new make up quite seldom. However sometimes it's nice to try the new lipstick color or eye shadow. 
It was a warm day today. The weather was so pretty so I decided to put on something lighter. I bought that top perhaps three years ago from Hennes and also a bag and socks are from there. Shoes are from Vagabond and they do need wax. 

I hope you have a nice weekend, I keep up reading and I try to find myself in the bed early. It is a workday again tomorrow.

Weekend and the first of May

I had a blast weekend though  I didn't plan it just at all beforehand. We went to eat pizzas on Saturday after the work and attended gold parties of the local ice hockey team just for fun. I'm definitely not a fan of ice hockey, but I was curious to see how many people there were and there were many... in the evening I opened a bottle of sparking wine and we ended up watching the fire works. It was like it would have been New Year's Eve: it was snowing and the sky glinted. 
Finally the weather has warmed up so that it's possible to wear something else than winter overcoats and it feels awesome. I was already so bored with wool coats that I could bury them six feet under. 
I recommend to visit here if you want good pizzas and you are around the corner. I have visited twice and I find the place is nice and stylish. I like their interior. 
Sunday was purely a home day. It was snowing so the weather didn't invite to go out. I went to the gym and watched several movies at home. Next day was a work day so I wasn't able to party hard through the night and to be honest I prefer stayed home. On Monday we rounded around the city after I was free and there were a hell of a lot of people in the downtown. The weather was pretty so we spent several hours outdoors. A bit different weekend and the first of May, but I can't complain. Besides my other half bought me a balloon ;D
