Sushi and coral

Hi everyone!

How are you today? ♥

I'm pretty excited, because after one and half weeks it's time for my Autumn break - yay for a week without school! Of course, there's a couple of exams and other deadlines before that, but nothing major (I believe).

I've been super inspired by everything the past few days, which means I've been taking some pictures for this blog, done my nails in a few different ways, baked new things, organized our home little more... I can't wait for the Autumn break to start so I can go through boxes, bags and closet to get rid of unnecessary stuff. I'm also planning to simplify our livingroom decor a bit (decreasing the clutter on top of shelves, and so on). Even though I had a massive clean-up at the end of the Summer, I still feel there's too much everything.

And that drives me crazy.

I guess that just means I'm finally becoming like my mom, I need to have organized place so I can focus on things better. And of course, it's easier to take pretty photos of everything when there's more plain/empty surfaces around.

Also, you may have noticed the new "Shop My Closet" tab up there, under the header. There's no items available, yet, but I'll announce it here once there's anything to see! (I think I might put up something during the break, because I'll have the time to go through my closet. ;))

Anyway, to get to the point with this post... After the first week of school, my fiance decided he wanted to treat me with a trip to a sushi restaurant. I really love sushi a lot, so I didn't have to think twice. ;) So, that Saturday, after he got off from work, we went to have a fancy little lunch together.

Somehow I love my hair in this photo - if you don't mind me saying that.

I still feel like we're out on a date every time I go on a dinner/lunch/movie/etc. with him. I know this will sound funny, but I think I'm still (after 3 years) head over heels in love with him. He's the good kind of bad boy anyone would want, if you know what I mean.

Look at him! So adorable. (I had to share this picture, not sure if he loves me for it, but as he is my everything, I don't think he'll mind.) I love that crooked smile of his, and I was over the moon to catch it on film - he's even more uncomfy in front of a camera than I am! Anyway, if you're new to my blog and haven't seen every previous post (honestly, I don't expect you to!) and keep wondering who the mysterious lover boy is, that's him. ♥

The restaurant we went to is called Maruseki, and it is one of my personal favorites so far! I mean, look at this amazing dish! I love that avocado sushi so, so much - I'm actually planning to do those for lunch tomorrow, and will write a post with a recipe for you later! Anywho, the food was amazing as always, and afterwards we headed to an amusement park - only to realize it was packed with people. So we went home, instead, and went for a little walk around the near-by nature and such

So, with all the transitioning nature around us, I couldn't help but take few random pictures of it. And I'm sharing my favorites with you. And, before any random anonymous reader thinks I think I'm such an amazing photographer... I don't. I'm just learning to take nice shots with my fancy camera, and maybe one day I'll be as good as my camera is. :D

Or not.

Anyway, most of you might have gotten that I'm kind of an animal lover. I love anything from kittens and puppies to snails and llamas, from fish to crocodiles and elephants. So it can be pretty much any living thing, and you can bet I love it. Therefore, when I saw this little guy on the side of the road, I had to take a picture. ♥

Rowan berries. Whenever someone mentions Autumn, this exact image is what comes to my mind. I love the colors in this picture!

Dandelions showing their soft side. ;) Also a sight I simply love. They're so cute like that!

Anyway, to the outfit pictures:

I think my dear fiance is starting to grasp the importance of having variety in pictures, yay!

Knit: Vero Moda
Studded shorts: DIY (see more here)
Glitter sneakers: DIY (see more here)
Heart necklace: gift from my mom
Bracelets: Pink one - Accessorize, Woven one - DIY,
Rhinestone bracelet - Lindex, Black ones - H&M
Belt: Gina Tricot

This was a fun casual outfit to wear, and I only realized I was wearing that much DIY stuff when writing this post. Funny. The shorts were such a cool addition to my wardrobe, I could still wear them all the time if only it was warm enough for that. The sneakers are climbing slowly but steadily on to my top list of shoes, just because they're so unique. What else... Oh, the knit here might look very slouchy to some of you, but it's supposed to be like that. I bought it one size bigger than necessary, because on me, it totally looked better that way. :D

What do you think about the look? ♥

I hope you're having a wonderful day! In the next post, I'll be showing you more challenge manicures. Hopefully they'll be at least a bit inspiring. ;)

Blog ya later,

xoxo

Johanna

  5. NAMII sushii ♥
    Meillä ei ole sushi-/japanilaisia ravintoloita, mutta yhdessä ihanassa paikassa Holvissa on välillä sushiviikot. Siellä käytiin viimeksi, mun synttäreiden aikaan illallisella kahdestaan (maaliskuussa haaha:D)
    Söpösti sanottu miehestäsi, mullakin on semmoinen kivanlainen pahapoika ^^ ♥

    Tykkään kovasti sun diy-jutuista asussa! ^^ Niittejä olen jo saanut postissa mutten ole saanut aikaiseksi tuunata yhtä jakkua ja shortseja vielä (no niitä tarvitseekin vasta ensi kesänä :D)

    1. No mutta hienoa että edes toisinaan saa syödä sushia ;) Meilläkin kyllä varmaan budjetin puolesta tulee hiukan harvennusta ravintolaruokailuun, mutta ajattelin vääntää huomenna itse avokadosusheja ;)

      Kiva että tykkäät DIY-meiningeistä, niitä tulee näkymään enemmänkin kunhan saan aikaa ja energiaa moiseen "ylimääräiseen" :D ♥

  7. Your hair looks amazing in these shots. I love the belt. I just found a whole bunch of my studded belts from years ago. It was like Christmas all over again.

    Thank you so much for your comment on my latest blog post. I really appreciate your support. As for the NHL lockout, I am SO mad about that. It's easily fixable, but the league is choosing not to work with them for whatever reason. We can only hope that it gets settled fairly soon. We are already missing out on preseason hockey -- I don't want to miss the entire regular season, too.

    1. Thank you! ♥ I really love studded belts, and I would die if I found a stash of them somewhere in my house. Lucky you!

      I really get you're being pissed for the lockout, I personally don't get it why they just have to make it so darn difficult. :P I don't mind having the big stars playing in SM-Liiga, but I'm so sorry for you missing the season that I don't even know if it is that fun anymore... Lets hope they find a solution soon enough ♥
