What happened in 2014?

As this year is coming to an end I wanted to do a little collage post about this year! ☆~(ゝ。∂) Also I've been updating so little this year so I have plenty of photos that I haven't shown here in my blog. So here we go! And oh! This entry will be extreme picture heavy, so be patient!

January

At the beginning of January I went to see Frozen and fell in love with it. I also fell in love with the school girl style and sailor collars. (●´□`)♡ 15th I had my 21st birthday! I got some lovely Liz Lisa items as a present from Janette and we went to see some stand up. Then I visited Starbucks in Helsinki for the first time.

February

1st of February it was time for Helsinki Lolita Convention which I visited for the first time. I'm not lolita myself but I adore the style and all the people there were really cute and their dresses were beautiful. Then of course February meant that it was time for Desucon. I also went to eat to a restaurant called Gaijin, and food there was absolutely fantastic. It was expensive, but those tastes were so great. ( ๑ ❛ ڡ ❛ ๑ )❤

March
Looking at these pictures it seems that my March was full of great food. (ノ≧ڡ≦) I don't really remember doing much. But I went to see a game music concert in Turku and that was a lot of fun.

April
In April I spent some time being sick but that was quite okay because I got my Final Fantasy X remastered edition. I spent the whole week just in my bed and playing it. I also went crazy with wigs, seifuku and maid outfits. In April I also went to see Heidi.'s live which was in Gloria!

May
SPRING HAD FINALLY ARRIVED TO FINLAND! (((\(@v@)/))) I remember taking so many photos of flowers and trees and they were so beautiful. I also got a place from a sewing workshop, so I spent the rest of my spring there. Me and Noora started dyeing my hair lighter.

June
Summer and Desucon came! I wrote an entry about Desucon in here so I don't feel like going trough it in here too, sorry! It was time for some lighter clothes and all kinds of summer treats. I spent a lot of time just hanging out with my friends in parks and pubs. I also got my first Dolly Wink eyelashes and blue circle lenses as well. I was surprised how comfortable Dolly Winks really feel. Also blue eyes went really well with my blond hair.

July
Did some shopping on ebay, tried some dyeing for my hair again and of course went to Sweden! Most of the time I was doing the same as in June, just hanging out with my friends and making the best out of the summer time.

August
In August I went to an extempore road trip to Tampere with some of my lovely Chotto!Girls. There we went to Särkänniemi amusement park and when we were driving back to Helsinki Tanja bought Robin's CD and we got totally hooked on his music. I also started my school to became a dressmaker. Then there was DesuCruise! (⌒▽⌒)☆

September
At the beginning of September it was time for Tracon again! So we headed to Tampere. For the first time in ages I was visiting Tracon as a normal con goer, because we didn't have a show with Chotto!Chocolate and I didn't feel like doing any ordinary con work. But it was really fun! I had so much free time that it was quite a nice convention. ´・ᴗ・`

October
I went to DesuTalks and ate lots of cake. I got a new phone because my old one was getting really slow and had to be restarted from time to time. We were also very busy with our Chotto!Chocolate practice and making new videos.

November
I wanted to try something totally new with my hair and me and Noora decided to try color name Strawberry Fizz to my hair. It was supposed to be light pink but it turned out to be more violet than we expected. But it was a really cool color! I got a new Liz Lisa shirt and I really loved it. I even went to Gyaru Finland's meetup wearing it. (๑>◡<๑) Then we went to Jarkko Ahola's Christmas concert with my family.

December

So here we are now, it's December and Christmas! I've been holding a Manga Club for young people this year too, and before Christmas we decided to throw a little party for the club. So we ended up ordering 150 pieces of sushi. ヾ(○・ω・)ノ☆ It was really much fun.

This year has been both really fun and there has also been some hard times. But at the end of the year you mostly want to remember the good stuff right? I bet it will be really much fun for me to come back to this entry when the time goes on and remember this all. (*´◡`​*) Let's hope I'll make more great memories next year and be sure to write them all down here too!


Happy Holidays everyone!

☆ メリークリスマス ☆ Merry Christmas ☆


Merry Christmas everyone! *ଘ(੭*ˊᵕˋ)੭* ੈ✩‧₊˚ I had a nice peaceful Christmas eve with my family and grandmothers. We ate some great food and this year I was responsible for making the sweet Christmas things. Yesterday I made some gingerbreads and today my little brother decorated those. And I made those tasty mince pies. (ㆆᴗㆆ)*✲゚*。⋆


We ate the Christmas lunch a while ago and I'm still so full of all the food. (;*´Д`)ノ But that's what Christmas is all about right? There's still plenty of food left so tomorrow my family will be eating all that... And this Friday we're going to my grandmother's place to eat another Christmas lunch. ( ๑ ❛ ڡ ❛ ๑ )❤


This is what I got as a present! (◞ꈍ∇ꈍ)◞⋆**✚⃞ྉ My mom was all like "oh no you're not getting many presents this year I'm so sorry" but come on mom, I'm 21 years old so I'm not sad or anything. And I ordered some clothes from Yumetenbo so my mom promised to pay some of them as a Christmas present... Can't wait to get all those cute clothes. (~ ̄▽ ̄)~ But as you can see, I got two hand creams, a kitchen towel with gingerbread man on it, chocolate coffee, six movie tickets and a Winnie The Pooh case for important papers! These are all really nice.

But I hope you all have a really nice Christmas too! 。*゚✲*☆(๑òᆺó๑)。*゚✲*☆

Big slump coming to an end!

Hello everyone! ☆ミ(o*・ω・)ノ For the past two months I've really been in a slump, but I think I'm finally getting out of there! We Chotto!Chocolate girls finally filmed new dance covers and I got to do some modeling for my friends' school works.

 
Modeling day 1!

Modeling day 2!

I still don't have the real deal of the photos my friends took of me, but they will be published soon. I can't wait to see, what the actual photos look like. (*/∇\*)


We shooted this dance video in October! Even thought Finnish autumn wasn't pretty and colorful anymore we sure were! This was a cute little dance to do, and I really like the band Fairies too. Our sync has also improved so much, I'm really proud of our group! °˖ ✧◝(○ ヮ ○)◜✧˖ °


The second dance we shooted was Kimagure Princess by Morning Musume! Embedding the video here sadly doesn't work, but you can see it HERE! I have loved Morning Musume's songs and dances since I was like ten years old, so I really loved dancing this one. Kimagure Princess also has the best lyrics ever. ✿♬゚+.(。◡‿◡)♪.+゚♬✿


I've also had time to meet some of my friends and eat great food! Some time ago I even got to go to a cake buffet. All the cakes there were so delicious. I sadly only managed to eat six pieces. I want to go again and eat more! ヽ(●゚´Д`゚●)ノ゚

So that's about it I think. I've also been watching anime like crazy and dreaming about cosplays... I finished the original Sailor Moon last week, and now I'm up to date with Sailor Moon Crystal. Even thought the original series has it's own flaws and Crystal has all the derpy faces I still love the franchise. I'm also hooked on Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso. It's my favorite series of this Autumn. It has also made me want to play violin and listen to classical music. ♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪

See you again soon!! ヾ(・ᆺ・✿)ノ゙

My Närcon 2014

Hello everyone! ヾ(。・ω・。) How has your summer been? Mine was busy as always, thought I mostly ended up doing nothing. My school started already two weeks ago, but it has been really interesting! I started at a new school to become a dressmaker. (•̀⌄•́) But now I'm going to write about my trip to Närcon!

View from the airplane. (๑✧◡✧๑)

Fresh traveler! Nice photobombing Stella...

Our trip to Sweden started super early because we were supposed to have our rehearsal for the opening ceremony at midday. Flight was on time and all that went well. But after it there were all kinds of problems with trains and the train company itself. Our bus to the train station just never came and we ended up missing out train... Luckily there were also some other people who were traveling to Linköping and missed the same train as us. Long story short, we ended up taking a taxi to Linköping, which is like 200 kilometers from Stockholm. (´⊙ω⊙`)!But we still weren't on time to be at the rehearsal until the very end. (´;д;`)


After the rehearsal it was time to hang out with everyone and getting to know the con area. That place was huge! I know Närcon has a huge amount of visitors, workers and guests but the con are still seemed a little bit too big in my opinion. I don't even remember when was the last time I had to walk as much as in Närcon. And it was so HOT too! (=xェx=) But it was kinda funny how even thought the are was so big we bumped into other Finns ALL THE TIME. 

Team Odottemita.fi starts at 2:30 but I recommend to watch the whole opening ceremony. (“⌒∇⌒”)

At the evening it was finally time to do the opening show! I was too excited to be nervous. °˖ ✧◝(○ ヮ ○)◜✧˖ ° Dancing on that big stage was too awesome, and 30 seconds wasn't enough on it. I really wish we could do a big show there with Chotto!Chocolate, but traveling is always so expensive... (T▽T) It was also fun to see AKB-senpais to dance!

After the opening ceremony I was duty free for the whole con. It felt kinda weird, because in Finnish conventions I'm always working or we're doing some Chotto!Chocolate stuff. Even if I don't have any duties I usually go watch lectures and other programs. But in Närcon I had free time more than ever. One of the reasons might be that I had no way accessing Närcon's mobile information thingie, so I didn't even know what kind of stuff was going on. Well at least I got to spend some quality time with my Swedes and even make new friends. (*^ワ^*)


One thing I was waiting forward to was the night party on Saturday! Our party people went to the main stage when Dunderpatrullen was still performing and the audience looked amazing. It really had that kind of festival feeling I had been waiting for. But after they stopped performing nobody came to say that there still were two more performers coming to play! Everybody started leaving the main stage area... I was so angry for DJs Jokk and Movestache. Suddenly the whole audience seemed really empty. Luckily Movestache started to play soon so some of the people came back. But still, this whole thing seemed really unprofessional to me.

Well at least I got to party with some other Finns and lovely Swedish friends. And Movestache also played his awesome remix of Oj Vilken Överraskning! That was awesome.

Sunday we didn't really have time to do anything, because our flight back to Finland was leaving the same day. Because our experience with the Swedish trains wasn't too pleasant last time, we wanted to make sure we'd catch that flight so we had to leave super early. (´A`。)

But yeah, it was really different conventions experience for me and I liked it! There were many things, that I didn't write about and could be better. Närcon is a big convention and the bigger it gets, there's less room to make mistakes. But I see a bright future for Närcon, and I really want to go there again. ´・ᴗ・`

☆ Last Summer in Riga ☆

Hello! (⁎ ✪͡ ◡͐✪͡ ⁎)ノ” Last week I got a flu and I'm still kinda recovering from it. (T▽T) But I've had time to watch all kinds of anime so it's almost okay haha. Today I was browsing my cellphone's photos and I found pictures from Riga last year! Then I remembered that I didn't write anything about that trip back then, so I'm going to do it now.


I traveled to Riga with some of my relatives in the end of July last year. We only stayed for four days but I had so much fun seeing all the beautiful places and eating too much. (੭ु˙꒳​˙)੭ु⁾⁾

Outfit of the first day in Riga! ☆
Hat ★ H&M
Dress ★ YesStyle
 Shoes ★ Somewhere from Harajuku
Bag ★ Second Hand

The first day we were just wandering around and taking pictures of all the houses and streets. I mostly took pictures of the flowers I saw at the market place haha. ヾ(*⌒ヮ⌒*)ゞ



The second day we hopped on a sightseeing bus which was super fun. We were able to see all kinds of places in Riga though it was really hard to get good pictures when the bus was moving. But we got to know many things about the city. After it we walked on our own and searched for a great place to eat of course! ( ˘▽˘)っ♨



Luckily we found a great terrace and got excellent food! The day was really nice and warm so it was great to eat outdoors. And that cheesecake was so delicious. ;u;


Outfit of the second day! ☆
Usamimi ★ Bijou Brigitte
Cardigan ★ Second Hand
Dress ★ Liz Lisa
 Shoes ★ Somewhere from Harajuku
Bag ★ Second Hand

Activities of the third day were my favorite of all! We went to see Riga Zoo. Even though I think zoos are mostly unethical I can't help but to squeal when I see cute animals. Σ(・ω・`|||) Most animals in Riga Zoo seemed happy. Some penguins looked kinda depressed and there was one lonely bear, but the others seemed okay...

Zoo visiting outfit! And alpacas!! ☆
Cardigan ★ Second Hand
Dress ★ Liz Lisa
Bag ★ Second Hand

Capybara-san!!

Giraffes!!

Zebras!!

Bambi!! (´;Д;`)



Of course we ate well once again. This time it was grilled shrimps with fries. And the days cake was lemon cake. (人´∀`*)

The last day we didn't really have much time to do anything, but we got to see Riga's biggest market hall. I was so tired that I didn't even take any photos... After that we flew back to Finland... ☆ It was a nice little trip, and I would totally travel to Riga again!

Long time no desu!

Well hello everyone! Long time no update, but now I'm trying to update more regularly. (๑•́ ω •̀๑) My life has been kinda like a rollercoaster these few months and it still keeps on going, but I'm going to do my best!

Sibeliustalo-chan... You're so kawaii...

Swedish invasion!!!

My summer started with Desucon as usual. It was so much fun seeing all my Finnish and Swedish pals again. *u* Unfortunately I wasn't able to finish any of my cosplays for Desucon. My financial situation isn't too fantastic, so I don't really have money to buy any fabrics or other material. I hope I can finish at least one cosplay this summer. 。:゚(。ノω\。)゚・。 

I had time to visit Café Ichigo! Cake was good as always.


I also got my first Dolly Wink lashes for Desucon. I can't believe how comfortable and easy to put on compared to those 10 pairs for 2 dollars eBay lashes... After wearing these I can't even consider using those again. Even thought they are quite expensive they are so much better. And if you take good care of your false lashes they can last too.

But that's about it for now! I have quite a few drafts of posts I could make, so maybe I'll try to finish them? Hehe, we'll see! ☆~(ゝ。∂)

Can you love someone with no body?

Hello everyone! ┻┳|・ω・)ノ There haven't been much going on lately, I visited Turku last weekend and I've just been watching anime without make up in my home clothes. Thought in Turku we went to see a game music concert with my family and it was a amazing! It was really cool to hear music from games like Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Assassin's Creed IV etc. played by a real orchestra. But now I'm back to Espoo and yesterday I even dolled up a bit. (▰˘◡˘▰)

Beanie ★ H&M
Scarf ★ Accessorize
Jacket ★ Second Hand
Shirt ★ YesStyle
Cardigan ★ Seppälä
Skirt ★ Liz Lisa
Shoes ★ eBay
Bag ★ Liz Lisa

It's finally getting warmer here in Finland, and I can use all my pretty spring/autumn jackets. ヽ(;▽;)ノThis jacket I bought from Eve, because the sleeves were too short for her. It has a cute sailor collar, too bad you can't see it from this picture. I'm so into sailor collars right now.

So yesterday I went to eat to restaurant called Emo and see movie called Her. It was such a fancy night. (◍•ᴗ•◍)❤ 


Food at Emo was absolutely delicious. I ate all kinds of cheeses and some chicken. But it was so fancy, I'm not used to restaurants this high class! |・ω・`) Waitresses were also really nice and told information about every food that was served. If I was rich I'd love to eat this way everyday. Maybe someday...

Then there was the movie! I still don't know if the movie was touching or just really confusing or both, but it really made me think and I think that is an important thing. If a movie (or almost any work of art) doesn't make you feel or think anything, it's not impressing enough.


So in a nutshell Her is about a man who falls in love with a talking operating system which has artificial intelligence. I think this movie took a fresh look at a problem what many movies, tv-series' and comics have already been about. There are many stories of people falling love with robots with artificial intelligence but what happens if there's nothing physical? I still haven't sorted all my thoughts about this and I think I'm never able to, because there's huge amount of things to wonder about this kind of situation. 

The futuristic world in this movie was really cool. I loved all gadgets and how their computers worked etc. In some way it was really realistic view how world could be running in a few centuries, or even decades. Also the movie's visuals were really pretty and I loved how everything looked. I think I have to see this again when it comes out as Blu-ray. 

I think that's it. I thought about writing long text about this but at the moment I can't come up with anything else. Maybe after I've seen it again...? But to the other things! I'm so sad that Kill la Kill AND Golden Time are coming to an end tomorrow. 。:゜(;´∩`;)゜:。 It feels like they've been my highlights of the week forever now! But I think I'm going to write something about those animes after tomorrow. I have TONS OF THINGS I want to say about Kill la Kill.

So stay tuned. ☆~(ゝ。∂)
