Brighten Up!

Hey everyone,

As you might've read, I've been somewhat sick this week. That has meant plenty of liquids and endless hours of Gossip Girl. But it looks like I'm getting back on the tracks soon enough :)

But how are you all? Everyone doing fine? ♥

I hope so.

Okay, I never talk about politics, but how many of you know that we have the presidential elections at the moment in Finland? It's kinda interesting as we've had our first female president here for few years now, but it's time for a man again, apparently... (And that might be a good thing, if you don't mind me saying so.) Okay, so to cut this short, the race is now down to two men, and I'm interested to see which one wins. Not going to share my political views here, but just wanted to tell you what's going on in Finland.

Now, on Friday, I'm planning to focus on some web studies, so if I'm a bit quiet with commenting, don't worry - I'll be fully back in action on Saturday, if not before. ;)

I also managed to finish a couple of DIY projects this week, and I also took some photos, so I'll be posting them to the "Made by me" section during the weekend. ♥ (And I got so inspired by everything that I have big plans for creating details to our apartment. ;)

Anyway, to the outfit. I have been trying to cheer myself up by wearing bright colours this week, and I think it has worked. I feel loads better than on Monday, and I bet next week will go amazingly well. So, here's something I wore the past two days:

Outfit of the day





Jeans: Mango
T-Shirt: GinaTricot
Bolero: DIY
Socks: H&M
Watch: my fiancé's

Okay. So I ended up posing in our messy floor right next to shoes. Not too classy. :D

But what matters is that the clothes look like they should. I'm a bit disappointed that the pictures don't do justice to my make-up, but I try to get a better photo during weekend - in the daylight instead of 11pm shoot with flash. It totally makes the difference. 

I don't know if it rings a bell, but this outfit is kind of an adaption of what Sarah Jessica Parker has worn. Who knows? (you can click here, if you don't) Probably a very used look by now, but when I saw that tee on the sales rack, the image of SJP hit me and I just had to buy it. And it's pretty darn cute, I think.

Moving on.

So, has anyone missed my manicures?

If so, you're in for a treat, because... I finally posted one! Yay!

Manicure of the day





Just something simple I made up with Mavala shade 34, Nicosia, and some ordinary crafting glitter. Oh, and I used (of course) some top coat, too. I thought this was cute, but how do you guys like it?

That's all from me now, but on Saturday, there'll be some Kreativ things ;) (in more than one ways. And also, I'll feature a weekend playlist, too!)

Till then, remember to enter the face mask giveaway going on!

Blog ya later!




  1. love your nails! hope you get well soon ;-)

  2. Love the glitter-tastic nails, Johanna! Haha and as for the photo I was first thinking... 'Someone's in the Valentine's Day mood' haha but then I saw the picture of Sarah Jessica Parker. Brava, nicely done! Totally see it.


    1. Well, the Valentine's Day assumption was great, too ;) I mean, there are hearts and girly colours, so... :D

  3. Love your blog!!Following you!!
    I'd love it if you check out mine and tell me your opinion!!

  4. I think pink & red look great together. It was an odd combination for me at first but it has really grown on me.

    I have never been interested in politics until recently and I think it is just the fact we are all growing up and those issues start to become more significant. I'm from Canada but I have been really interested in the U.S. elections cause I know their decisions are going to make a big difference in our country (sadly).

    Anyways, feel better! Love the outfit!

  5. I love the pink and red color combination! :) And I hope you feel better! That manicure is amazing, I wish I was as talented with painting my nails!

  6. Hey Johanna! Oh gawsh, we're gearing up for elections here in the states (it's a year away, but candidates are campaigning). I love your outfit! The color of those jeans are awesome and your polka dot socks are super cute. Always a doll! I like the glittery tips of your nails! So much fun. Study hard! :D

  7. It'll be interesting to see which candidate wins. The closest we've had to a female pres was Hilary Clinton. Your nails look awesome and I love the red jeans :)
