Leather Vest ♥

Hey you guys!

What's up today? ♥

I'm feeling so good and relaxed, even though I know it's gonna be a stressful week, since my dear man had gotten me a massage time for today. No more stiff shoulders for a while! Also, I got my latest nail polish order today, so I will be showing that to you later on this week. I'm so excited to get to try out all the shades on my nails. But more on that later.

So the weekend went by so, so fast, with all the hockey, drinks and video games - and most of all, fantastic company. It was nice to be reminded how amazing people I know, it made life feel even better than before. So thank you everyone who was part of my weekend, I love you guys! ♥

Today, I'm showing some pictures of a school look a while back which I really wanted to picture outside but again there was no light whatsoever to do so. So just a couple of somewhat decent pics to give you an idea of this look. I'm really hoping to get more pics over the holidays as I'm sick of indoor pics and bad lighting.

Vest: Gina Tricot
Cardigan: Gina Tricot
Top: H&M
Jeans: Gina Tricot
Necklace: Gina Tricot

A very simple layered look to wear to school. And a half updo I had been dying to try out for a while. I would love to wear the leather stuff more now, but it feels too cold to really rock them properly. Even though I think leather vest might work over the right knit. 

What do you guys think about the look?

Now, I'm going to make a nice base for my new nail design, and then I'll go to bed so I will be up nice and quite early to do some school stuff. Luckily that can be done tomorrow in a cozy look at home with a tea cup. That's my kind of studying. I'll be talking to you again soon, if not tomorrow, then at least the day after. So until then!

Have a fantastic day ♥

Orange vs. Aztec ♥

Hello my darlings!

How are you today? ♥

The week is finally done, and it's one week, two exams, one project and a bunch of tasks between me and my winter break. And that feels pretty awesome. I'm also super excited for our projects class, where we will be doing quite cool things during the spring. I never though of myself as a project-loving person, but I guess I was wrong. Or maybe it depends on a project a lot.

Anyways, we're waiting for my cousin and her fiance to get here, so I'm taking the chance to blog now, as the house is looking decently clean and I have few minutes all to myself. So, today, I wanted to share these two nail designs with you all.

First up, a set of orange leopard nails, for which the inspiration came from browsing the web and seeing some awesome designs. Nothing too unique, but this was fun to do.

Colors I used for these are Essie Licorice, China Glaze Sun Of A Peach, China Glaze Gossip Over Gimlets, and Rimmel London Glitter Top Coat Disco Diva. The studs and rhinestones are all from Born Pretty Store.

For this kind of nails, the only tool you need is a dotting tool, as it is very useful for the leopard print. Of course you can also paint with a brush, but I personally think it's too difficult and that's why I prefer dotting tool.

The other mani is also colorful, but still totally different. Somehow I've been creating very summery manis lately, even though it's almost Christmas. I completely blame the lack of snow there, because normally I would be all about Christmas nails by now. I'll try to create at least a couple of those before Christmas though!

With this mani I had a lot of fun just playing with colors, as I was trying to make something that would look cool on the glow bowling alley. Yes, I made nails just for that. Call me crazy if you want to.

For these nails I used a whole rainbow, China Glaze White On White, China Glaze Stoaked To Be Soaked, BK UV Pink, Depend Neon Yellow, Gosh Blue Balloon and Alessandro Top Coat Viva La Diva. Top coat is my usual choice Essie Good To Go. The diamond stickers are from Born Pretty Store.

So here are my two designs for today, I hope you enjoyed them and got at least a little bit inspired. If you decide to recreate either of these, please tag me on your posts or link them to me!

 Let me know what you think about these nails in the comments below!

Now, I'm gonna go spend time with my people, but I'll talk to you again on Sunday! I hope you'll all have an amazing weekend, as we sure will.

Have a fantastic day ♥

Black Cardigan ♥

Hey lovelies!

How are you all today? ♥

I'm being quite busy for a week now before I get to enjoy my winter break. Although even on that break, I have to work on school reports. So, yay for me. Anyway, as I had a moment between reading for tomorrow's exam, I figured I should post this outfit from while back. I'm so sad there's hardly any daylight to take pictures in, because there's so many outfits I would love to share. Maybe on the weekend I can get a picture or two of what I'm going to wear. We're going to a hockey game with a group of friends, so I'm hoping to catch nice photos from that event.

But anyway, to today's look.

Cardigan: Gina Tricot
Top: Gina Tricot
Skirt: New Yorker
Tights: Gina Tricot
Boots: SpiritStore
Belt: Mango
Necklace: a gift from friend

So this was a simple, girly look I put together for school a while ago. It was comfy but pretty, and I totally loved wearing it. That skirt is one of my absolute favorites and I would love to wear it with everything. Which actually wouldn't be that bad idea. And this was nice change since I don't do cardigan looks too often. The necklace was a surprise gift from one of my dearest friends, and I absolutely love it so much. Thank you H, it is perfect!

How do you guys like this look? Let me know in the comments below!

So now, Ill go and get some last minute reading done before getting some much needed sleep. Tomorrow, I will try to post a little something, but on Saturday I will have a day-long break from blogging as I have guests to entertain. But if you wanna stay tuned, I will post on Instagram and Twitter (also possibly Facebook) about the things we do!

Have a fantastic day, you all ♥
