My pup has been sick for a few days now, but today it got a lot worse so I had to take her to the emergency vet. I could just feel my eyes starting to water and stomach turning into nuts, when I stood there waiting for the doctor. But Nossmon was such a brave little bunny and didn't even make a sound when the doctor enjected her with painkillers using the biggest most horrific needle (!!!) - unlike me, who was crying like a baby. Sometimes I just wish that I could be child so that my mother could tell me that pupster is going to be okay.. and I would so naively believe her. But I guess it's just a part of being an adult - there are no shortcuts, no stories about little farms where the animals can go and play and live forever - you just have to learn how to deal with things like this, with all the pain and the heartache. I left with a tired little puppy and a handful of medicine - so the next few days are going to be crucial. I just really hope that she's going to make it and everything will be okay. And hopefully I can pull my act together by the time of my interview.. needless to say that I'm sobbing all over the computer as I'm writing this. Wish us luck!
I'm so sorry that I haven't been posting lately - well that's just because I 've been looking like a beat up old dog from all the stress and lack of sleep. As many of you art students might know - university interviews have started so I need to get my portfolio together and looking good, also juggling with school, my diploma work and other projects - ooh.. the pain. Yeah, but what'cha gonna do. Just need to find ways to keep myself alive motivated.
" Before I die..."
by Candy Chang.
Anyways.. I also wanted to tell you about Candy Chang - a public installation artist, designer and an urban planner who's projects have really touched and inspired me. This is one of her latest projects "before I die.." where she turned an abandoned building into a an art installation - where the residents can fill in the blanks and remember what is truly important to them in life. I have to say that this really got me thinking .. what would I write ? I think there isn't enough wall space in the world to fit all the things I want to do before I die. Isn't it wonderful.
" It’s about turning a neglected space into a constructive one where we can learn the hopes and aspirations of the people around us."
"before I die I want to .. apologize, be forgiven, be free."

And some random shots I took during this week. I found this gorgeous black sheer fabric the other day that really inspired me, I think i might go back and get some more. But enjoy the pictures and let me know what you think! :)
Veel tahtsin kõikidele õrnema sugupoole esindajatele edastada minu head ja väga hilinenud naistepäeva soovid. Ma loodan, et Teid kõiki peeti ikka meeles, toodi lilli.. ja et oli üks ütlemata mõnus päev! Olge tublid mu hiirekesed! :)

I've been feeling like a SIMS charater all week. Seriously.. I see the little green icons over people's heads and the little idicators, huh perhaps it's because I've been having trouble sleeping so my head has started playing tricks on me. But hey, I'm not complaining.. on the contrary! So whoever is sitting behind the computer screen and moving my little avatar - yay for you! And just to illustrate the situation and how I've been seeing things - I made this funny little selfportrait thingy magingy. The photograph is actually a frame from a tiny animation project for school, which I still haven't finished yet, but I think I might buy a large canvas tomorrow and make this sillyness into a painting. Oh and the T-shirt that I'm wearing is from glamclothingstore.com - which is a little online store that has the most awesome T-shirt designs ever. Can't wait to post more pictures, but in the meanwhile you can just enjoy the rest of this post, it's gonna be a long one! Oh and be sure to leave me a comment telling me what you think ;)

- Early spring FAVORITES -
"god bless the daylight, the sugary smell of springtime"
I can already feel the warmth of spring in the air, altough it was just snowing this morning. But I know that it's just a few weeks away - so i've been trying to get into the groove of things and shake this winter depression off. I always like to start with the little things - like changing up my perfume! My all time favourite spring/summer scent is this Mallorca girl from seppälä, uuh I can't even begin to explain how much I love-love-love this smell! For me it's like a little time machine, cause I pretty much go back to this perfume every spring/summer, so it always reminds me of the best times. It's also a really great dupe for Davidoff "happy summer" fragrance. So if you don't feel like spending a lot, you can just grab for the Mallorca girl./ Oh and I made this illustration last summer and it was actually inspired by the scent of Mallorca girl. (I used pen and photoshopCS3)
I also like to change up my nail polish. I'm not really ready for those bright-neon colors yet, but just lighter ones. So instead of my usual black or dark blue, I use light grey or white. I've also been obsessed with little tangly bracelets and re-discovering old jewellery.
/ Light grey nailpolish from H&M, butterfly ring is vintage/ bracelet is self-modified: I just took a bunch of little charms I had lying around and attached them on this little silver chain which was a gift from a friend :)
"something old, something new,
something borrowed and something blue"
As mentioned earlier - I simply adore rediscovering my old jewellery and all things vintage!
Also looking like a little treehugger! Loose curls, florals and a wavy linen shirt - all that's missing is a floral headband and you're ready to catch those butterflies! / Shirt from Iwearsin.com, floral skirt from NewYorker and thrifted necklace.
"Old habits die hard"
I have this stupid habit ofe purchasing items for spring in the middle of blazing winter. So here are some items I got a few weeks back, that I haven't been able to wear yet, but sooooon (!!). / Black studded dress from Zara, white printed tunic is thrifted and my mums straw hat which is vintage.
