I Picked out two outfits that I thought is perfect for daytime or nighttime and you can dress these outfits up or down deprending on your personal preference!





Funny enough everything I'm wearing in these outfits are from H&M except the shoes and they're the brand M.G.T Shoes!

The black and blue dress I'm wearing has these cute cutouts at the mid-waist (I guess) but I didn't manage to get a good picture of that so you just gotta imagine what it looks like (;

Also as I haven't yet shopped for spring in H&M the clothes I'm wearing is from last year but you can still find similiar items in H&M so don't worry!

My All-Time Favorite Songs & Why

Oh Hi!

Today I thought it was time to invite you all into my brain and let you guys know my all-time favorite songs. Sooo without any more talking let me just start. (These are in no particular order.)

1.  Christina Perri - Humans
This song and it's beautiful lyrics just means the world to me. I am just human and it lets me know that it is all okay to be that, just a human.


2. Justin Bieber - Favorite girl
Even though I no longer listen to Justin as much as I used to (or actually not at all) I still can never stop loving him for this song. It literally saved my life when I felt like dying.


3. Jessica Jarrell ft. Izzy Lee - Here is to life
This song again just helps me get up and just do my best no matter what.



4. Miley Cyrus - Liberty Walk
I listen to this everytime someone puts me down to let Miley remind myself that I can put my middle finger up and say "Fuck you." to those who try to put me down.



5. Jessie J - Who you are
Be prepared to cry your eyes out as you listen to this. Every. Single. Word feels like it's written right for me.

'


6. Simple Plan - Last one standing
Do I need to explain why I love this song?



7. Adam Lambert - Never close our eyes
This song. THIS SONG. Best thing on EARTH.



8. Westlife - Us Against the World
This is one of my faves because it's mine and Julia's song<3



9. All Songs from "Night Visions" by Imagine Dragons
I swear they went into my brain and made songs while being inside my brain.


Round And Round by Imagine Dragons

10. Ellie Goulding - Explosions
Beautiful song. Even through everything I can still make explosions. 


There are of course still a never-ending list of favorite songs and I can't fit them all into one post but maybe I'll do part 2 if people want me to (:

A Week At A Newspaper

Oh Hi!

This week has been a great adventure as we had work practice and I was at our local Newspaper! I wanted to see what it's like to work at a newspaper so this week has been fun!

(I'm writing this in my own little office at the newspaper to kill time as I have nothing to do right now)

On Monday when I came to the ÖT office I firstly got my own desk which is the coolest thing ever! Not only could I adjust the height of the desk but I had two computer screens so I could do two things at once! I need that at home!!



I then cleaned a closet full of newspaper until it was time to go on my first interview together with writer Tom from the newspaper. We went there and of course he did all the interviewing but it was a good experience never the less.

I didn't do a lot of other things that day, just wrote a little and other random things. 

On Thursday I followed with Tom to the city hall (apparently it's called that in English...) where we listened to a man telling us what they had decided the day before. It was all on Finnish though so I didn't understand a lot. 
I then went to school to eat and then I went to the ÖT office to get a camera and then I had to run back to school. My back hurt a lot after that because my bag weighed too much. 
At school I interviewed some High Schoolers about summer working and that ended up in the newspaper the next day! 



Wednesday was my favorite day because I got to hang out with another writer named Maria. We first went with the ÖT car to Cydennius University so that Maria could interview a woman about a study they had done at the university.
When that was done we went to my school (yes I was there AGAIN) to interview some pupils about this study. I then got to do a small interview with 5 pupils about what they think is good for their health. That also ended up in the newspaper but sadly it wasn't under my name ):

On Thursday I once again went to school to interview some people about Winter break that is coming soon. I was with Maria so she took all the pictures while I was interviewing them.
We also got to watch Abigaala (something the seniors have when they get out of school to start writing their exams to graduate) which I've never seen because it's only for high schoolers! So that was fun (:
I then also went to Royal Meals to eat with Mikku!

Friday was an exciting day for the whole ÖT as it was the day the newspaper got tabloid format from broadsheet format. So when I got there in the morning we all gathered in a small conference room to toast on a live stream to Vaasa and Pietarsaari who are also apart of the ÖT community. The rest toasted with Champagne but I'm underage so we can't have that happening and therefore I got to drink Jaffa. All good though!
After we had done that we got to eat the yummiest breakfast ever with fried eggs formed as hearts, salad, cucumber, cheese and all kinds of stuff! As they all said, I chose a good week to come for work practice! ;)
After we finished the breakfast I didn't do much until I went to my school again to get some more out of the people I interviewed on Thursday... It went OK.
I walked back to ÖT and finished the article about Winter break and then I started writing this blog post to get time to pass.
I also watched some TV because The Olympic Games are on right now and then at 12:30pm I went to Halpa-Halli cafe to eat food with the Emmas.


Other than that I also became the coffe lady who had to make coffe at 2pm everyday. Which was... Interesting haha!

I do hope I get to work at ÖT sometime in the future and if not, then that's a shame!

Emotions & Boys

Oh Hi!

Today I thought it would be a great time discussing what an emotional wreck I've been lately because let's face it, all girls are emotional messes, some are just better at controlling it!
I don't know if I'm good at controlling myself but I'm more that kinda girl who keeps everything inside and then suddenly cries over that we have no chocolate. Yes, put me up for rehab!

Lately, however, I've been damn emotional inside. I don't know if it's some stupid boy giving me the feels or just humanity in general, but I am feeling the emotional mess inside of me like a rainstorm, which means I feel like crying ALL THE TIME. *opens textbook to study for english* "Nope nope nope nope nope don't cry you can do this you can study no crying"
I think it's the stress over school... Hahahahah.

Now that I also mentioned boys I might as well just discuss them a little bit too.

What is it with great-smelling boys/men that just makes every girl wanna fall to their knees and.... Yeah well idk what they wanna do I'm just awkward.
No jokes but like a good-smelling man/boy just makes me wanna cuddle with them and smell them all day and I think this is why I'm single. I'm just way too weird... HELP, SEND HELP.

Also, why do boys feel the need to never grow up and always be total dicks for most of the time? Like I have yet to meet a good looking, nice-smelling NICE GUY my age. Like I honestly don't think this will happen until I am 40 and have already invested in 20 cats.

And because of that one douche you feel like you will never be able to ever trust anyone again and even though you forgive that person when another boy comes around and maybe likes you you don't do anything about it because you're scared. At least this is me.
And I start feeling kind of lonely when almost all of my closest friends have had boyfriends or have boyfriends and I feel myself wanting that, but also being scared of that. Idk this is getting too deep.

This post had literally no meaning but if you made it to the end then thank you for reading and you can leave a comment below letting me know what makes YOU emotional (:

Yummy Burger

Oh Hi!

First I wanna apologize for not putting up a Beauty Wednesday in such a long time! But the things that I've had planned have just not turned out how I wanted to and then I haven't had a backup plan so I've left you with nothing. But I do have exciting BW's coming up in the near future so I hope they'll make up for it!

Now let's get into this week's post which is a yummy fast recipe for some semi-healthy alternative to a BigMac at McDonald's.


I started off by frying my egg so it would act like a bief.


I then heated up my bread on the stove too.


Then you just add whatever you wanna add to the bread. I added some mayonnaise, some tuna, 4 slices of cucumber, 2 slices of tomato, some saladdressing and some cheese.


Then you just add the first bread ontop of the second bread like a boss and then you're finished (:

This took no time at all to make and it's sooooo yummy! Try it sometime (:
