ALL THE MEMORIES SO CLOSE TO ME

We finally met with the tennis chicks on Saturday and had a lunch at Herbe's partybox. I had a great time. I love these girls so very muchos.
 beautiful table...
 ...and beautiful girls
you've got your dum friends, i know what they say
they tell you i'm difficult, but so are they
but they don't know me
do they even know you?
all the things you hide from me, all the shit that you do

HENRIK VIBSKOV

So I went to see the Henrik Vibskov exhibition yesterday. It was quite interesting. He really is a peculiar artist, and I think we'll hear more of him in the future. I think my favorite piece was the one with the flamingos (picture below). The older I get, the more interested I get about exhibitions and art galleries, especially if they have something to do with fashion.
 
 
 well, i should probably warn you i'll be just fine
no offence to you, don't waste your time
here's why: because i'm happy

WHEN IT GETS TOUGH YOU GOTTA FIGHT SOME MORE

I had a great day today. I woke up and started watching some KUWK - my guilty pleasure at the moment. Then I studied a bit and went to see Henrik Vibskov's exhibition at the Design Museum. After that we had a family dinner and we went to this restaurant called Nuevo. Now I'm full and very tired. Well, maybe I'm still up for couple episodes of Krazy Kartrashians.
 
didn't mean to spill that liquor all on my attire

NEW HAIR, I DO CARE

I've never understood the saying "New/short/long/coloured hair, don't care". It's peculiar - why shouldn't you care about your hair? Don't get it :-D
I just wanted to show you my new hair. I cut it a little and added some blonde stripes (I'd never coloured my hair before, yaiks!). I didn't want to cut it much since I'm trying to grow it. I also wanted light stripes just so it would make my natural hair colour stronger. So nothing major, but I'm satisfied. :--)
say the word, say the word but don't say no
sky dive, you and i with just these clothes

FINISHED WHAT I STARTED

I. AM. DONE. WITH. HIGH. SCHOOL.
And very excited about that. I even painted my nails and cleaned my room.
I also wanted to show you my outfit for the past two months. Today I replaced my boots with heels, though, and switched my leggings to jeans. I feel like I've born again.
Oh, and also in the picures you can see my scarf that I made with my own tiny hands. I love how long it is. And red. Re-e-e-e-ed.

MAY I QUOTE YOU?

I am obsessed with quotes. Finding a perfect one that fits my life like a key to the lock is such an exciting feeling. Every time I see the quote it makes me smile and feel more sure about myself. I use them as screensavers so I can see them all the time. I decided to share my favorite ones with you and even offer a little explanation why I love them so much.

most quotes are from weheartit.com, couple are from facebook
ON SCHOOL
My school years (at least in high school) are almost over - one more day! - but these quotes really sum up my final year. I think it is important to be able to laugh at yourself. Whether you are unpopular or just above it all, you're cool. Be weird, be loud, be yourself.
 ON LOVE

Those who read this blog probably know already that I am a massive romantic. I adore love. I think finding love is important. The trick is that love can be found anywhere - it doesn't always have to be a guy. For example, I am in love with my friends. Sounds weird I know, but they really do help me just being themselves. My life wouldn't be the same without them. That doesn't mean, though, that I'm not dreaming about that Mr. Right. ;--)

 1. This is my current screensaver. Being single doens't mean I, or you who are reading this, am desperate or lame. It means I am fabulous and actually number 3 backs it up.
 2. This is my all time favorite quote. It's perfect. It's genious. I love how she makes me things completely differently.
 1. Another SATC quote. Can't help it that the show is full of truths about life. This one caught my eye for the first time couple weeks ago when I saw the episode. It's about finding the right person who is on a same level as you are. It encourages me.
2. This quote is from my favorite book and pretty much makes my teary every time I read it.
 3. I've heard him say this many times in interviews and it is the ultimate truth: you can't define love. I believe love is always different. It changes and evolves. It hits you when you least expect it and hurts you to make you stronger.

ON LIFE IN GENERAL

I am currently very happy (or I will be after Monday). I have been able to maintain my healthy lifestyle for a while now, I'll be done with school soon, I have a plan for the future and I have a summer job. It's funny how I thought that my life would be a mess after I graduate. Well... we'll see what's it gonna bring :-D
 
 1. So inspirational...and so me. I've changed completely since I came back from Texas. Change is good, though, it makes life interesting. It must be hard for my love ones 'cause my mind changes in a heart beat. But hey, I am an adolescent, this is normal, isn't it?
2. I am Nora and I am a shoppaholic. And in love with fashion.
3. Yep, true story, sis.
4. Ellen DeGeneres is so funny. She is hilarious. And coffee is bad for you. Does this mean that men are bad for us, too? Well, they can bring trouble with them, that's for sure.



 how many times do i have to tell you
even when you're crying you're beautiful too
the world is beating you down
i'm around through every mood
you're my downfall, you're my muse
my worst distraction, my rhytm and blues


THE SIMPLE STORY

I got myself the perfect lacebra two weeks ago. These are a necessity under the sheer shirts I plan on wearing when the weather allows it. The sun has returned to Finland and I wouldn't mind if it never left.

I just got back from the library where I studied for almost five hours. I regret the day when I decided that it was a good idea to take my finals in Spanish. I know that I'm okay in it, but I feel like I have the pressure to get a good grade on it since I totally failed in my Swedish ones. Un día más....
 
i be everywhere, everybody know me
super super fresh with a dope styling
hunny on my wrist, couple karats on my neck

DEM JAM TOASTS

Had a brunch with Sonja today morning. It was fun! Sometimes I really need these breaks with my bubble friend :)
I don't know why I'm so tired. I have been working out in the mornings and it has given me a great start for the day, but apparently it also makes me tired in the evenings. Three more days and then I am done with high school... I don't know where I'm gonna find the energy to study....... but three more days. I can do it! (?)
 COOL MUGS
 tired
 delicious






she looks so perfect standing there
in my american apparel underwear
and i know now that i'm so down

BE NICE

"She is nice," is such an typical sentence that one uses when one can't find a better adjective. Being nice, however, is one of the greatest compliments I can give because I consider half of the people I meet rude. This world and its people seem to have forgotten manners. Now I don't know if it's because we are constantly thinking about ourselves and our busy schedule so we don't bother to think before we speak and act, or whether we don't care about anyone else's feeling anymore. For the past six months I have paid close attention to how people behave. I'm not sure if I've walked my head in the clouds and a blindfold covering my eyes, but I am genuinely shocked. For all my life I'd thought that most people behave well. They don't.

I am very well aware that I am not the nicest person in the room. I can be mean if I want to, but I know how to behave in social occasions. I have common sense. This includes being quiet in library when asked politely, saying good morning to the busdriver, and not blaming for others even if it really is their mistake.

I've given this a lot of thought lately. I think Harry Styles sums it up pretty well: "Work hard, play hard and be kind."

Saying something nice can actually make someone's day.

ORANGE

I bought a new lipstick. It is orange. Woohoo!
 
 and the walls kept tumbling down in the city that we love
great clouds roll over the hills bringing darkness from above
but if you close your eyes
does it almost feel like nothing's changed at all?

I'M A SLAVE TO THE SOUND

I'm quite proud of myself at the moment. Those who know me know that I mainly listen to Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and a cute boyband from England. Now I've started to add new singers/bands to my playlist. HAIM is one of the additions and even though it is quite different compared to e.g. Taylor Swift I love it! Bastille and Pharrell Williams are amazing as well. Let the expansion begin!
 
 
always keep your heart locked tight
don't let your mind retire
ooh, but i just couldn't take it
i tried hard not to fake it
but i fumbled and when i came down to the wire it felt great

BLUE

Some blue pictures even though I am feeling anything but blue. Actually, for the first time in a long time I'm feeling really happy. For once everything seems to be going like I want them to go. I like this change!
Unfortunately I have to declare that I am going to take a break from shopping (my favorite past time, sniff). I need to save money. In addition, I was going through my closet yesterday and I noticed that I have everything I need - clothing-wise. Here's my list:
crop tops (many, check), high waisted shorts (both colorful and denim, check), pyjama bottoms (check), black jeans (a must have, check), dresses (in every color possible, check), save-the-outfit shirts (couple white and black ones, check), leather skirts (both nude and black, check), fur vest (perfect one, check), jackets (leather, pastel, fur, wool, camo, denim, check), something metallic (that new skirt below, check) and a bomber jacket (a flower one, check).
Seems like a pretty good list.
 
and they're calling don't stop
no, i'll never give up
and i'll never look up, just hold your head up
and if it gets rough, it's time to get rough

THERE ARE ALWAYS TO SIDES TO THE STORY

Let me introduce you to two new additions of my coat collection. The first one is a beautiful vintage fake cheetah fur and the other one is a cute, simple, girly, cottoncandy pastel coat from no other than Primark. Both of these were someting that I'd wanted no more than 730 days (if I counted correctly, that would be two years).

Currently I'm reading A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens and I'm actually quite disappointed because I expected it to be a tragic love story (I still have 100 pages to go so anything could happen, though). Otherwise it is an exceptional piece with some hilarious details. I have laughed out loud reading it.

I'm completely fed up with my hair and I'm dying to do something to it. The problem is that, like always, I don't know what. I guess I'm going to put blonde stripes and cut it a little. I want my bangs to grow out faster, please! I want to have the perfect bob, like Lily Collins has.

Furhermore, couple days ago I got some pretty exciting, fabulous and awesome news, but I'll keep them a secret still. I'm feeling mysterious.
 
 
i combined the fur with a hollywood-glamour make-up and my ridiculously high black block heels.
 
 with the pastel jacket i wanted to try the sheer skirt (borrowing from aliisa - and probably never returning mwuhaha). and since fashion has no rules anymore, I combined silver eyeliner with golden lips! i'm a badass.

i'm gonna paint you by numbers, then color you in
if things go right, we'll frame it and put you on a wall

IT'S TOO COLD OUTSIDE FOR ANGELS TO FLY

Lets pretend that +3 degrees Celcius is cold, that I'm an angel and that taking pictures is same as flying. In that case the title is very accurate.
No, but seriously I've been quite busy lately. Some rather interesting things have happened and maybe I will share them here later. Anyway, I just wanted to present you my new glasses from River Island. Ever since I watched Skins about a month ago and one of the girls had these huge white sunglasses I wanted to get ones. And I did. Simple as that.

 
 
you'll add my name to your long list of traitors who don't understand
and i look back and regret
how i ignored when they said run as fast as you can
