material world

Hello again my lovely birds !

This might be a long text, but deal with it !

I don't buy much clothes. For mostly two reasons; I don't find clothes that I like (reason number one!) and I don't want to consume. My sister buys lots of clothes all the time and doesn't use them for long. I, on the other hand, use my clothes until they are full of holes and still continue using them.

I express myself through clothes. I felt horrible when I wore my most boring clothes to school due to "come as you are not"-day as well as when I switched clothes with my roommate who has a little boyish style... I just NEED my tights, beret, sweet accessories, skirts, shorts...! I feel so comfortable in my own clothes it's almost ridicilous. But that's how it should be, right? :D

Lately I've been more interested in what I wear. I want to look good, cute, girly, feminine, sweet, but then again my mind goes for a rollercoaster ride and sometimes I feel like wearing different kind of clothes. My style has been described as both good and bad, cute, feminine (well, at least some of the adjectives described above!), artistic, french-like and "hihhuliranskalainenaméliebanjobaskeriherrataiteilija" (=zealot-Frenchwoman-Amélie-banjo-beret-Mr.Artist (the name of my plush Maki ♥)). Oh, and I'm officially "she-who-doesn't-wear", meaning I often wear too little and then suffer from the cold winter here in Finland :'D But I do not like winter clothes! GRAA!

But anyway, a little about what I would like to buy.

1. I am obsessed with lace, frills and tulle. Yet I don't have too many clothes with those things. One thing I really want is a tulle skirt. Maybe not one like in the picture but something like it. Or one really poofy!!

2. I've been looking for thick, warm cardigan with buttons and a few days ago I found one from Cubus' online store. I just have to go to the local store tomorrow to see if this really is my dream come true-cardigan!!

3. I've been wanting to try the "thin tights, warm, long stockings"-look. I just have to find a pair of warm stockings (any colour will do, but maybe black, white or grey...) !! And I have to buy warmer tights too (I'm obsessed with tights !) Or then again, I could just buy trousers for the winter. High waist ones - please!

4. I NEED WINTER SHOES! Something brown, maybe with little heel, preferably warm! All I have now is my sister's old, now of course ruined, dirty, UGGs. (I hate UGGs! They're ugly but so warm... ; _ ; I'll save them for the time I go play winter games outside...)

5. A pussy bow tie blouse. For some reason I fell in love with these and I've tried them on. Some of them fit me and some don't at all so I'll just have to keep on looking for the perfect one C:

6. Something unusual for my wardrobe, a thick skirt. My dresses are mainly baby dolls and my skirts are kind of poofy and they start from my waist. So I'd like to try this kind of skirt for a change!! (But maybe not that color in the picture...)

...I have to buy new underwear. My underpants are the most horrible thing ever :----'''DDD (YOU WANTED TO HEAR THAT DIDN'T YOU. :C )

I also adore Riikka Aaltonen's style at the moment. Her style is so feminine and sweet!

If you know cute shops/online stores suited for me and my style, please give me a hint ! ; )

celebrate good times


Yees, today is Finland's independece day and this little blog of mine turned 1! :---D This is probably my longest running blog and most popular as well. 10 readers heeeeell yeah!

I've been thinking what should I write about. To this point all my posts have been just random... randomness yet not random in that kinda way. :'D I don't know what to write about! I think the internet is full of lifestyle blogs already and so on.

But then again, this blog is mainly about dreams, beautiful things and wandering in the wide world. And for learning English, of course. Maybe if I blogged more this would gain more readers. Or then I should just advertise more. I'm too shy... :''D

Any ideas what I should write about? I'm planning on writing about my VHS collection and my addiction to Friendship is Magic, but anything else? :'''D

Anyway due to the birthday of Precious I think I'll change the blog's layout soon :---)

I really want to write another post after this, about clothes, and I can do it!! Because I'm the owner of this blog! Muahahaaa~

Anyway, enjoy your independence celebration!

The powers of the night
are vanquished by the morning light,
Your day is dawning,
O land of birth.

those lovely girls

Good afternoon!

There is a certain group of people I call "those lovely girls". I either envy them, want to be like them or just am fascinated by them, I really don't know. Some people just give me that feeling, "she is definitely one of those lovely girls".

I don't know if those lovely girls even exist. They're way too perfect to be true.

They are like roses, golden little buttons, the sweetest tea in the world... They are like meringue on top of a muffin they've baked, shade of peach in their cheeks, carmen on their skirts...

They draw and bake, read literature like Alice in Wonderland, their room is tidy and self-decorated. They enjoy peace and quiet the nature has to offer as much as a cup of hot chocolate or tea after a photograph session in the winter wonderland.

They look fragile, yet they have the temper to defend themselves and others. They find happiness in the smallest things. They are beautiful inside.

Elle Ribera looks like those lovely girls. (http://opiumpoppies.tumblr.com/)

There are just too many things I consider as "those lovely girls"-qualities. I couldn't ever be a completely lovely girl. And I don't even want to!

Speaking of lovely girls... To my mind Alice Burdeu is one of the prettiest girls in the world. Of course I haven't seen all the girls in the world so I wouldn't know...

And Audrey Tatou is as well. She's just way too adorable in Amélie.

I'm not saying everybody should be one of those lovely girls. Not at all. I love differences, I love different people, I love freaky people, I love nerdy people, I love all kinds of personalities! I have no idea why I am talking about those lovely girls. I just felt like sharing my thoughts.

...now I feel like watching Amélie with my boyfriend, but that won't be happening for months... But I could try to be like one of those lovely girls by tidying up my room a little. : )

the reason

"Happy birthday for a grown-up woman, Nani! Wishes KiBi"

He gave me Pokémon Yellow as one of birthday gifts and made this special team (almost like the one in this post!) :3 One of the reasons I like him so much, we just get together so well. He's so sweet.

Oh, I'll save you from this... for now! :'D

it can't hold me anymore


I turned 18 a week ago. 18! So I'm practically an adult! (YEA RIGHT LOL :----D) I had a big housewarming/birthday party thing and it was so much fun!

People say that it's not that big deal to turn 18. For some it will be because they can legally get alcohol, smokes etc. which I just find sad :'''DD But for me, my 18th brithday really was magical because somehow I dare to express myself more. It's really a big issue for me and I'm soooo happy and a bit reliefed as well.

But it's still funny that I'm 18.

SO I WILL DOOOO THIGN JUST BECAUSE I WAAAANTT TOOOOO AHAHAH so here's umm little something about this year, read it or not:

That's me and the best cat ever, Pekko. My friend Rewe drew this for my boyfriend because today is his name day. This also slightly refers to a dream Rewe saw. In that dream I told her that my boyfriend(-to-be) is my girlfriend. Happy name day dear

Here's also plenty of me, lol. All credits go to my little sister(s).

Hello to you all!

Our school will have a 80's styled party this Thursday so I thought that I could write a little about my love towards the crazy decade. I haven't been into this 80's stuff for long, maybe one or two years inactively so don't expect me to be some awesome 80's master who knows everything...

I don't know what's so great about the 80's, something just draws my interest. I like to find out what kind of clothes teenagers used to wear that time, I like to watch 80's movies, I like to know about... well, everything related to the 80's. I think it began with my other hobby, VHS collecting. (I could write about it as well, ohoho~)

And yeah, I mainly focus on the USA's decade but I try to find out about other countries as well :---D

This site has been a real golden treasure chest and Holy Bible for me: Like Totally 80s
It has so much info and personal experiences that you just have to love it!

Also this has helped me a lot with my movie-watching: The 80s Movies Rewind
...but I'm sure even that page lacks movies so please recommend good 80's movies for me! Any movies!

This is how I'll look on Thursday. I might put a little more makeup (if I find my eyeliner...!) and tease my hair more.

Quality sucks. Click the photos to enlarge!

I don't have money to buy new clothes for just one event so I'll just go with what I already have on my closet. I'll wear my fake Converses as well. (since my real ones are dirty D: ) People tend to dress in neon colors and aerobic clothes and other ugly stuff and that bugs me a little since 80's fashion is much more than that! You could be punk! Or preppy! I'm not saying neon colors are a bad choice, it's just a little uncreative. An easy choice.

By the way I was shocked because I heard Kanye West and Jay-Z's Otis today at H&M. First I was like "Cool! They're playing "Try A Little Tenderness!"" and then the rap part came and I was like... Like... I gotta tell you, if I were on a little more sensitive mood I would've cried! The rap artist have rap(p)ed too many songs... Why am I so emotional about this? Because the lovely Duckie sang that song to Andie in the movie Pretty in Pink and it's one of my favourite movie scenes ever. So thanks a lot West & Jay-Z. u___u

Here's my 80's movie list.

Feel free to share you thoughts and experiences of this lovely decade with me!

Ps. I found a zebra under our kitchen table today.

...I told my roommate not to bring him to our place but she brought it anyway. I don't think animal skin looks good on our floor. Or anyone's floor. Or anyone's coat. u___u

"Hi! ♥ I'm Seppo. Please treat me as your own daughter. ♥"

...So now I have to eat with my roommate AND a dead zebra. Yay.

What a feeling, bein's believin'
I can't have it all, now I'm dancin' for my life
Take your passion, and make it happen
Pictures come alive, you can dance right through your life

Hi to you who shall not pass!

Sneak peek! I'm knitting a scarf for my boyfriend. My goal is to knit 10cm per day and so far everything's going smoothly~ I had a little trouble getting things started because last time I knit was in elementary school (I think.), and that's almost six years ago.

I finally managed to pull myself together and decorate my calendar! "Elontahti" means "The Rate of Life". I just wanted to be more... "creative" and use some nice words instead of just plain "calendar".

I painted the cover for Elontahti black and smudged my floor. So uhm, I started writing random words because I felt like it. Thank God I wiped it away pretty soon, otherwise it would've stuck there :'D (I didn't clean up my desk in time and now it has ink stains... And the desk is not mine =_=;;)

My boyfriend and his friends are amazing. The princess of Sweden, Victoria, and her husband Daniel visited Finland this week. My bf and his friends had composed a song about Daniel quite some time ago and they played it to the royals - twice. The second time made it to the publicity and a couple of internet magazines wrote little articles of them. Vickan and Daniel seemed to like them a lot :D

Here's a link to the video.

ps. Our Pack started a website/blog about our musical and other stuff, feel free to read it ! http://hopeanuolimusikaali.wordpress.com/

mitä jos ei usko mihinkään,
saako silti hengittää

...I've watched 14 episodes of Hanasaku Iroha in two days so I'm pretty hyped :'D There's something in HanaIro that makes me wanna watch it. There's no big plot, nothing over-dramatic and I don't have absolute favourite characters or anything... I just like watching it. Two more episodes to go! Please air them soon! : D

...also please make Ohana&Ko a pair ;~~;

leaves like butterflies


It's funny. At the same time I feel like I don't do anything or I don't have any projects but when I stop to think about it I have lots of stuff to do. I also have my two little autumn traditions... : D

This autumn

- I'll draw autumn the third (can't wait ! : D)

- I'll do my "Poetess' October 2011"- diary. (last year I did it only halfway, this year I'll try making it the best so far. (I've done this since 2009.)) Basically I write a poem each day about daily happenings for the whole October. This year I may want to illustrate it as well. I came up with this idea myself but later heard that other people have done this before. Oh well.

- I'll watch a whole anime series from the beginning to the end! I sit in front of the computer but rarely finish any series. This year I've managed to watch Kaiji and Ginga: Nagareboshi Gin. I have three episodes left of Ika Musume (season 1) and today I started watching Star Driver since my friends talked about it. Me & KiBi are also planning to watch Ginga Densetsu Weed together. I also need to watch Hanasaku Iroha!! I like it but I forgot to watch it every week so I'm faaar behind with the episodes.

- THIS WEEKEND! I'll spend it with my lovely pack of dogs ♥ Our musical group (well, some of it) will get together and watch lots of musicals ^^ (Moulin Rouge for example... Even though I don't care about it much.) Also, we have to talk about certain things ; D

Some of our brave dogs. Please click to enlarge! ♥ Photo (c) Emilia Lahtinen

- AND NEXT WEEK! ...I'll finally see my boyfriend... I've been melancholic because I miss him. KiBi ♥ ; _ ;

- And I'm part of a roleplaying campaign each Friday!

- I have a larp in three weeks... Can't wait for more info!

- And and and and I have at least three theatre projects in school plus one which I am planning. : D

Oh. So much to do. : D I have to finnish Watership Down as well... I still love the book even though I've only read half of it : D I ALSO HAVE TO DRAW MORE, RAAAAAR. (Instead of only complaining about it, I should just shut my computer and draw.)

Random pieces from my drawing diary for school. Some of them made with heart, others... Well... :'D

I love all kinds of projects more than anything, but I tend to lose heart at times and feel like I can't do anything. I try my best to keep a smiley face!

Ikävä synnyttää runon
johon haluaisin kietoa
syksyn ja sen lehdet.

ps. If you're interested in reading about our musical's behind-the-scenes problems, please read this. (Sorry, Finnish only.)

How do you do.

I baked cinnamon buns today! 40 total, but only 39 survived 'til the end. Today was such and grey and miserable day. I was feeling down and I thought that I could bake... Yeah.

Also, I went through some photos JiiBee took from our musical. It made me feel so much better.

Random dance after the actual show. We ♥ Kokoro no Kiba!
Father & son moment with crazy huskys : D
Partying in Hokkaido-style!

Well, that's about it for today.

Olen taas kattanut lautaset kahdelle huvikseen vaan,
vaikka tiedän, että kolmeen viikkoon et oo kotonakaan

life is musical

It's over.

Yet I don't feel like it's over. Our musical I mean. Our long-term project, Hopeanuoli!musikaali. (Ginga: Nagareboshi Gin!musical/Silver Fang!musical).

Last Friday everything was a complete mess. Our microphones didn't work, we had problems with lights and timing the music, the head of our Akakabuto kept on dropping, the cardboard bears were unfinished... To cut a long stroy short: we didn't have a decent, complete dress rehearsal.

So, on Saturday afternoon we tried the cardboard bear battle, we didn't have time to go through the whole musical. I sewed the head of Akakabuto with our Wilson and we didn't have time to test it on stage.

Then the workers let the audience in. I had checked before, there was quite a line behind those doors. After the show I heard that every seat was taken, the VIP balcony was full, people were even standing there and in the end of the rows, some even sat on the stairs even though it was forbidden and still, over 50 people (some say over hundred, some even more...) couldn't get in.

When it started I was nervous. Nervous if the audience would like the musical or not. But when they clapped hands after our opening choreography I knew we couldn't fail. So the musical went on and everything went almost perfect. After the ending, the audience clapped their hand for like six minutes straight and I was just... overwhelmed. The audience gave us so much strength I can't even describe it!

In the middle of the great battle against Akakabuto I saw Yoshihiro Takahashi in the front row. The creator of Ginga series. The world-famous Takahashi-sensei. After the show, he suprised us by visiting the backstage, telling us that he had cried and then he took many photos with us and shook our hands. It was such an honor.

Whole crew with Takahashi.

Many people asked why we only had one show and why we were in the small hall when there was a big one. We got loads of compliments and I haven't heard a single comment which was completely negative. And this was truly heartwarming: some little girls waited for an hour to get an autograph from our Gin.

During this time, from December to September, our group has overcame difficulties, made new friends and some even call us their "mental family". I started dating my very dear friend and I think all thanks go to this musical and Rewe. (I was always like "NOOOO I'm never gonna start dating him, we're good as friends" :D But things happened, hahaha! I'm glad.) But I bet we all are going to stick together, some more, some less, but still. Many things await us in the future and nobody can tear us apart, nobody can tear apart Hopeanuoli!musical! Auuuuu~

You can watch the whole musical on YouTube (Finnish only).

Avaan ikkunan
hengitän sisään maisemaa,
niin täydellistä, että pelottaa.
Pelkään että aika ajaa meidät erilleen.
Mitä sitten teen,
mitä sitten teen?
Eikä ajatella sitä kuka on kenenkin,
että meillä kaikilla on kotikin.
Toisilla on joku, joka siellä odottaa.
Nyt ei kukaan muista,
eikä tahdokaan.

boil our blood


I have to tell you.. I have to tell you! I started reading Watership Down! ...since I've heard that the book actually is good. And so far it has been interesting. I just try to overcome my ultimate fear of the movie... :'D

The Flogging Molly gig was awesome! I had so much fun! All of the seven members brought us a brilliant, energetic gig... I'll probably share my thoughts later when I can upload my low-quality videos and photos :'D

And for the first time, I've been blog-tagged! :'D

"There are six things you have to tell. 3 negative and 3 positive, and be honest about them. In the end, tag six blogs and link the blog who tagged you.

Three negative things you have to tell.
1. Your least favourite cosplay and why. 2.Your worst experience at con. 3.Your worst con and why.

Three positive things you have to tell.
1. Your favourite cosplay and why. 2. Your best experience at con. 3. Your best con and why."

1. Your least favourite cosplay and why.

The photo tells it all:

2. Your worst experience at con.
I've never really had bad experiences. Sometimes being in con has been boring, sometimes I've had headache. Maybe the feeling after an all-nighter at Desucon :'D Or when I was playing with a toy gun at Nekocon 2008 and got scolded. Bwah.

3. Your worst con and why.
Well, I won't count Manga Day as con. Agh, this is a hard one. It's either Nekocon 2008 or Tsukicon 2008. Nekocon was boring boring boring and expensive, Tsukicon was way way WAY too crowded and full of wannabes. Sorry for being rude but it was like that back then. I don't know the current state since it's not that fashionable to like all this japanese stuff anymore.

1. Your favourite cosplay and why.
It has to be this:

I love Clannad, I love Kotomi and this one was done carefully. And my wig wasn't half-bad. I used this at Bakacon 2010 and I just have to use this again!

2. Your best experience at con.
I have way too many good experiences!! Like in the 2006 when I had so much fun with Rewe and the rest of the crew or in Bakacon 2009 where me and KiBi (we were getting to know each other then, heh.) competed in Iron Ganguro and spent a lot of time in Desuroom watching Mikan Seijin-Hour and laughed our asses off. Or in the following con, the first Desucon where we watched Kimagure Orange Road dubbed in Finnish... Or the night in Desucon 2011 where he asked me to be his girlfriend. And I bet our GNG!musical will be one of the best con experiences as well :D

3. Your best con and why.
I think I just have to say Desucon 2009. All the crazy randomness me and KiBi did... was just... I dunno. Unforgettable.

I have to tell you, I haven't been cosplaying since 2010. I have no money and no sewing machine for example :'D I'd like to cosplay more but hrmm. Maybe in the future!

But here's the link to Viv's blog.

shit happens when you party naked
but we won't stop.

let life crystallize

We'll be broke but never broken,
let us laugh until we cry


The quote is taken from a lovely song called A Prayer For Me In Silence.

I know it's been a month since I last posted anything but my summer has been loaded full so I really haven't had the chance to just sit back and relax.

So... What has been hip and happening?

I had my first summer job.

I've been away from home every single weekend. Thanks to our lovely Hopeanuoli!musikaali (GNG!musical) practises + Desucon, Animecon & Ropecon. Actually, I was away for 10 days because first I went to Ropecon and then we had a whole week of practising. BY THE WAY the show is on September 3rd, 5PM at Tracon (in pieni sali, Tampere-talo, Tampere). I know I've wasted hundreds of euros on just one show but... But I think its worth it. The whole musical project has been a wonderful experience. Now we just want to have a huge audience, of course! ; D

I got myself a lovely boyfriend whom I actually miss right now. I wish I could just hug him ; - ;

I MOVED AWAY FROM HOME. This is going to be heck interesting... I share this apartment with my friend and... Yeah. It's going to be interesting. We have for example went for a night swim and there were a lot of bats hunting for insects. And we have a mannequin in the corridor who has chlamydia and we are growing a tomato named "Detective Over-Difficult" :'D

When we combine some of the letters of our names it makes "Pina", but we add an extra "i" to form "Piina", pain. So welcome to Piinan pesä, the Nest of Pain! I made this label and now it embellishes our front door :'D

School starts again on Wednesday, hmm.

FLOGGING MOLLY IN 4 FUCKING DAYS !! I CAN'T BELIEVE IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT~ My all-time favorite... And I'm finally gonna see them play live! I bet I'm going to enjoy it more than chocolate! And that's a lot!

Now I just want to create. I want to draw. Dream. Overcome the fear of failing. Just let my brush play with colors.

...I somehow missed the summer nights I love so much. It's the start of August, but the summer is slowly turning into autumn. Autumn is my favourite season. I always feel so inspired I almost can't take it. I can't wait to draw "Autumn the Third". (the first & the second)

I want to shout.
Spread my arms and welcome the autumn breeze like an old friend
returning from the sea.

The feeling of loneliness
is like breathing misty air
on an early morning.

a moment


1/4 of my summer job, DONE! I'm more than happy. The work is pretty nice and the days go by fast enough...

Desucon takes place in Lahti this weekend. It's going to be... Veeeeeery interesting, I tell you. And I have to get my accessories done for the artist alley... Aaaagh... The only problem is the lack of inspiration! I need inspiration and I need it quick.

Here's me and pizza. From our GNG musical practises. We've done progress but we need to hurry a little to get it done in time. In my opinion. :'D Photo taken by Rewe!

We've known each other for so long
Your heart's been aching but you're too shy to say it
Inside we both know what's been going on
We know the game and we're gonna play it
And if you ask me how I'm feeling
Don't tell me you're too blind to see

it just suits the situation too well.

here i go !

The beginning of my very first summer job at the home for the aged.


Confusion paves my way towards the light.
Paranoia smothers me just one step away from...
King tells me not to bury the voice that's not yet spoken.
And I won't,
but Paranoia holds my left hand,
yanking me backwards,
while my right fingertips are almost touching
the light of Confusion.

Forgive me for dreaming it's all I have left


So much has been happening over the past few days... :'D


MY SCHOOL MADE IT!! TYK WON THE FIRST STAGE EVER!! These guys earned it!! I'm sooooo happy. It's good to be a TYKer!! (lol, I made a new English word...)

Anyway guys what's uuuuuup? Last weekend we were yet again working & eating hard on our GNG!musical practises. 8) I had a blast, thanks my dear friends
We went & made sushi. I'm so happy that I managed to stick a grain of rice to my cheeeeek!

We also played with fridge magnets :'D The last one says: "Don't you go youngster, there's an insane girl between us, the autumn hesitates to wake up, secretly." I'M SO POETIC HAHAHA :D

Then our school had this outdoors event to celebrate the end of the schoolyear. We had a bubble party, can you imagine? :'D Also improvisation theatre and bands playing on the roof 8)

It's a poor picture but my friend got scars after running to a tightrope which was meant for -obviously- tightrope walking.

And KiBi, if you ever read this, this one's for you:

Today we had a picnic party which will be one of the last things our group can do together for a while, since lots of people are graduating...


The songs are:

Speed of Darkness
I LOVE HOW IT STARTS! One of my absolute favourite song intros. (My fav is Streetlight Manifesto's We Will Fall Together ) Also, a pretty good song overall ^^

I was kind of hoping that a song called "Revolution" would've had a lot of power but well, it sounds almost happy but has a serious message.

The Heart of the Sea
Well this song really takes you to the dark, misty sea... I kind of like this song because of it's atmosphere.

Don't Shut 'Em Down
The first single of this album, yupyup. Well... Kind of a nice song. ... .. :'D Different from the usual Molly style. I love the bass by the way.

The Power's Out
I love this song for the energy it unleashes towards the end but the rest is kind of blah. But the blah also needs to be listened so the nice ending has a meaning (: (Do not ask what I'm trying to explain... x'D)

So Sail On
An ordinary calm Flogging Molly song I'd say.

Saints & Sinners
I kind of like this song. Nothing more to say. But I kind of like it. xD

The Present State of Grace
A song that I don't care for much. :'D A bit boring perhaps...

The Cradle of Humankind
It's refreshing to hear piano in FM songs (: But I'm not much of a fan of slow songs... But this is a nice one and somehow reminds me of... of a song which name I can't remember.

Oliver Boy (All of Our Boys)
I have to say that this is one of my favourites from this album and not because of the Oliver in the name! (Oliver is my favourite name ever x3) This is the one that'll get stuck in your head.

A Prayer For Me in Silence
Every time I listen to this I just think "Awww Reagan and King singing together". x'D A calm, under-2-minutes song.

Rise Up
A nice ending for a nice album, but a little forgettable... : /

Overall I liked this album after first listening more than I liked Float after first listening. (Now I'd say that Float is my 2nd favourite of FM albums. I think Within a Mile of Home will always be my favourite one. :') ) It's a bit different from the safe, usual Molly style while not being different at all. It's funny. :D

So umm yeah~! What a long post. I'll give cookie to everyone who reads this completely!

It's such a hard thing,
to keep myself together.
