Rocking a Hat ♥

Hello darlings!

How are you all today? ♥

I'm currently at school, trying to get a hang of management accounting, but as I'm kinda not that good in just sitting in lecture and taking notes, I figured I could write up something here. I know, I'm such a bad role model. Kids, when you're in school, focus on the lecture. It saves you loads of time before exams, I promise.

However, I thought it would again be time for a new outfit post. It's sad how few outfit photos I have taken lately, simply because I have a stubborn flu and too little time for things. It doesn't help that my dear photographer works full time and has commitments after work as well. Tomorrow we can finally get something done so that makes me pretty content. Luckily I also have few pictures I haven't gotten around to post yet so we can actually have a post today.

So, a casual look with quite much plaid (I love it too much!) and a rather makeup free face. These pics were taken on a day I didn't have the time or interest to do my face too much. But since this is more about the clothes, it's all good. I've been loving plaid and skulls and other rock vibe stuff more than ever lately, so be prepared to see those this spring. I've gotten a hang of the style I like to wear and figured I find the stuff pretty easily from secondhand shops. While this outfit isn't a prime example of my dream style, it has a lot of nice elements. 

But what do you guys think about this look? Let me know in the comments below!

I'm going to try and focus on the studying now, but stay tuned for a new post pretty soon. I'm so excited to be properly back in the game, and I have so, so many ideas for the spring. Let's just hope I will have time to actually make them all come true!

Have a fabulous day ♥

Baked Avocado ♥

Hi there lovelies!

How are you all today? ♥

Again few days have passed without me writing here, but hopefully you're all still happy to hear about me. I've been sorting out my studies quite a bit, and then we spent the weekend at our friends in Kuopio, so there was simply no time for blogging. Luckily today, I can finally get something out for you guys so we can try and get back with the more regular blogging. I will try to post 3-4 times per week (or more if I happen to have a lot of free time), but don't hate me if we have to settle for two every once in a while. Okay? Good.

Today, I wanted to share this nice little recipe with you. I found it on Instagram, and when I tried it I simply knew I had to share it with you.

Oven-baked Avocados

2 avocados
2 eggs
sweet chili sauce
cottage cheese

Cut the avocados in halves. Whisk the eggs carefully and add on top of the avocados. Add spices, and bake in 225 Celsius (425 F) for 15 minutes. Add some chili sauce and cottage cheese on top and serve.

I personally really liked this recipe a lot, and fully recommend trying it out when you want a nice lunch. I think this would also be amazing with some cheddar on top (because everything is better with cheddar on top), but I have yet to try that out. 

I hope you guys enjoyed this recipe, and if you try this out, let me know what you think!

Now, I'm gonna head out to school and try to learn something about marketing. Later this week I will be posting a new outfit post and more fun things, so stay tuned for that! Love you guys ♥

Have a fantastic day!

Gradient vs. Mix'n'Match ♥

Hello darlings!

How are you all? ♥

I've been out of the blogging - and everything online because I was sick pretty much all of the last week, having a sore throat and quite a high fever, so doing anything was a challenge. That means of course that I have a ton of things to do this week (supposing to be a break but truly it's not), especially with our school project which I feel super bad I have neglected. But now, with the new energy I'm sure I will get things done pretty efficiently, starting tonight.

For blogging, I figured a nice comeback would be a nail art post. Since I haven't done my nails in a week as well, it makes me feel better to actually see some creations I've done previously. Hope you like these as well.

So first up we have these gradient nails with animal print and some glitter placement. Pretty simple except for the glitter - because that takes time to work with.

This wasn't one of my favorite manis, but I did like the colors and it was a good practice of techniques, so not at all a waste in that sense. I'm not saying there's much of anything wrong with these, just not so much my taste.

The colors I used for this mani were China Glaze White On White, At Vase Value, For Audrey and Wait N Sea. The glitter is from Born Pretty Store as well as the studs, and the stamping was done with Konad plate if I remember correctly. (But if not, the plate was from Born Pretty Store as well.)

The other one today is a combination of pink, black and silver, which I personally like a lot.

I was trying to do a neat little tape thing here with the chrome polish, but that didn't work as well as I thought. I definitely need to try that again so much that I finally nail it. However many takes I need for that.

The colors I used here were China Glaze White On White, Escaping Reality, Meet Me Under The Stars and I'd Melt For You. The rhinestones are from Born Pretty Store as well as the tapes I was trying to use.

So that's all I have for you today, I'm going to get some sleep now so that I can continue catching up my workload early in the morning. 

Let me know your thoughts about these creations in the comments below!

I'll be back with you as soon as I can - and this time it probably won't take a week or so. So stay tuned, I have loads of nice things in store for you!

Have a lovely day ♥
