Hold on to your heart, 'cause I'm coming to break you.

Long time no see! Well that's simply because I'm a clumsy fool and somehow managed to spill wine on my laptop. So I died a slow death over the week and prayed that they could fix my little munchkin of a laptop. Oh and as always the timing was perfect - my animation course was coming to an end so work needed to be done and now I'm so hopelessly behind schedule, swamped in work and unanswered e-mails. And I'm gonna be a starving artist for the next few months, 'cause apparently mess ups like this are finacially pretty devastating, oh joy. But on the good note, I'm heading to Tallinn on sunday for my internship in Identity. So I'm really excited about that! Also wanted to say that I'm looking forward to answering all your questions, there were quite many of them so I think I'm gonna do it three separate parts. But here are some photographs for you guys, hope you enjoy and be sure to tell me what you think! :)

Hold on to your heart, 'cause I'm coming to break you.
Also a quick outfit post which you can aslo find on lookbook HERE. I'm wearing my selfmade lace dress and skirt, scarf from Reserved, jacket from NewYorker, belt from seppälä, bag from second had and studded boots from NSking. I actually have a bunch of skirts like this waiting to be listed on my Etsy store, but I just feel like their too springy so I'm just waiting for the right time to list them :) But just so you know there are a lot floral, lace and peachy skirts coming. Also in the next post I'm gonna give you a little sneak-peak of my soon to be available jewellery collection! uhu!

The tenderest touch, leaves the darkest of marks.
This is part of a personal project I'm working on. I'm gonna make these images into large scale drawings.. and by large I mean huge! But you guys are gonna laugh at me when I tell you how I took these photos. No I didn't use a camera... I used my scanner instead. I got this idea a while back, when I was reading about this man who is actually famous for his scanner art - he managed to capture some amazing textures and shapes just by scanning and it really inspired me. So I decided to try it. Although I'm gonna have to insist that you guys don't try it in public (like your school or the office), 'cause it can look.. well.. rather retarded, luckily I had the chance to do this in the comfort of my room. But do try - you might get some awesome results!

Florence and the Machine - Hardest Of Hearts

And the devil's got a fresh new place to play. / ASK ME ANYTHING!

Since I get so many emails and comments every day with all sorts of questions and I rarely get a chance to reply to them all, I've decided to dedicate a whole post (if not several) to answering them. So if you have any questions or requests, leave them in the comments below! Can't wait to read them !:)

Just a big ball of cozy!
I've been hopelessly ill these past few weeks so it's been hard to get all glamorous when your nose is always running and you cough like a 80-year-old man. So I haven't had the chance to get all dolled up (that also explains the lack of outfit post lately), but I've been wearing a lot of oversized cadigans, sweaters and jeans(!!!) (I hate wearing pants, but sometimes -20c can make you reconsider). So here are some photographs for you guys. I'm wearing a studded oversized cardigan from Coiincos, skinny jeans from NewYorker, boots from NSking, black tank and a scarf from Reserved. As I said - nothing special, just a big ball of cozy!

"God bless the daylight, the sugary smell of springtime."
Since I can't really smell anything at the moment except for my nasal spray, I thought I'd photograph some of my all time favorite perfumes for you guys.. just for the fun of it. So here they are - very sweet, very sugary scets. So if you want to smell like a delicious cookie then these are the ones to get. Enjoy! :)

The Shins - New Slang

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

So you took a chance and made other plans.

One of my new year's resolutions was actually to post more on my blog. So this is me trying to post every other day, hmm.. it's been 6 days since my last post, yeaa good job Kerti ! Well I've been home sick for a few days now, so I kind of have an excuse..?
Well anyways, I don't know about you guys, but I have always been the person who was never really big on "statement jewellery" - you know, bling as big as your eyeballs and shinier than a stainless steel kitchen, but this gorgeousness from Lindex has completely changed my mind. I think heavy-looking jewellery like this would go perfectly with something delicate like a sheer button-up or a lace shirt. So I hope you enjoy these photographs and be sure to tell me what you think! :)

“Home is where you can say anything you please, because nobody pays any attention to you anyway”

People say that a room can say a lot about a person, so.. what to you think my room says about me? Well except the fact that I have the biggest collection of silly mugs and that I should reallly do some cleaning - I mean look at that dusty lamp, aah and I'm pretty sure there's someone or something living under my bed.

And a quick outfit.
Jeans from seppälä, lace blouse from, boots from NewYorker.

I also wanted to share this short film about a photographer called Scott Schumann and his blog
The Sartorialist. ( ) Enjoy!

We move towards the stars.

Listening to White Lies always makes me feel very gloomy for some reason, perhaps it's because I can relate so well.. anyways I really have no reason to be all morbid and stuff, because that's just the way life is - when the time comes you need to move on and find something new. And the fact that this is probably the last christmas I'm going to spend at home makes it that much more real - I am going to leave soon. And by soon I don't mean tomorrow, or the day after that - but time flies, it really does. Especially when it comes to stuff like this.
Anyways.. here are some photographs from yesterday. Me and Annu just went out for a coffee and some window shopping, but ended up not getting any coffee, cause apparently euros are causing quite a hassle and the line in CoffeeIN was endless. And I really could have used a cup of hot coffee, because I was freezing since we decided that it was a good idea to do some parkouring in the snow.. well not me.. but Annu. And today I woke up with a fever. Yay fo me! Well I hope you guys are having a good vacation so far and enjoy the pictures! :)
