Greyscale Minnie Mouse

Hi lovelies,

How are you all? ♥ Waiting for the weekend already?

I am. We're heading to Helsinki once again, and we're going to see friends of ours, shop a little, and visit an amusement park. I couldn't be more excited!

I was supposed to post yesterday already, but I was just a bit too tired to do that with thought, so... But I have to say, Wednesday was kind of the loveliest day in a while. My fiance decided he just had to buy me a lunch in a sort-of-a-French restaurant, with a dessert and all, and he still has the nerve to tell me he doesn't have the money to treat me like a princess. Personally, I think he spoils me.

Luckily I have my cooking skills to make it up to him every once in a while, though. (Which reminds me, if you haven't already, check out the latest food post, Chicken Enchiladas!)

Like on his birthday a couple of weeks ago, when I baked him a Super Mario themed cake. If you haven't seen it already on Instagram, here's your chance:

I was aiming to cute cake, decorated with Invincibility stars and with a colorful inside. I have never ever baked anything this close to rainbow before, but I gotta say, this whole colorful baking is really therapeutic and fun. ;) (I also made a Hello Kitty cake after this one, and I'll be posting the recipe on July.)

And as we are talking about his birthday bash, some might remember me mentioning we had a few friends over to drink and play some video games. As I'm not a girl to spend a party in a pair of lounge pants or in something equally anti-girly, I opted for a dress. I was wearing the same outfit for work, and one of my lovely colleagues said I reminded her of a Minnie Mouse - and hence, the title.

Tunic dress: thrifted
Belt: SpiritStore
Headband: Seppälä
Hello Kitty necklace: gift from the sweet Laura (I'm hunting a perfect gift for you this weekend ;))
Ballet flats: Skopunkten

That dress is something I bought from a thrift store back in high school, just because I loved the color and the cut of it. Since then, I've worn it so many times I can't even tell you, but now it seems that I can't find that many different ways to wear it. But with enough bows, it seems, everything looks adorable. 

What are your thoughts about this look?

Oh, and another thing. If my hair looks, well, more than usual, it's because of this amazing set of clip-on extensions I bought as a birthday present for myself. Now, the question is: Would you like to hear some more about hair extensions? I could write up a post about my set, attaching and taking care of them, and how to use them in hairdos. But that's up to you, if it's something you'd wanna read about, I'll do it. :)

Also, I will do an apartment post once I get our balcony ready. As you can see from the shots above, the balcony is a bit "urban" - meaning it looks a bit too harsh for our taste, but we're working on that as we speak. ;) I can't wait to show you some details around our home!

And, if you haven't already, please check out my previous post, it's all about nails! ♥

But now, I really need to catch up on some blog reading. ♥

Blog ya later!

xoxo
