Graduation

Fresh master.

One happy master.

Some snaps from my graduation festivities. Didn’t use camera too much though, but at least I got the cake perpetuated. First there was a celebration at the university for all masters that graduated from there this spring, then the next day we had a small feast at home.

It was great to spend time with family and relatives, we don’t really see each others too often. So special thanks to mom for making it happen and organizing everything (and for forcing me into having a party. ;)) Only relatives received an invitation to this one, so maybe I have to have a second party for friends too, hmmm….

Hair-do. Tried to add some flowers so it would feel like summer despite the bad weather.

Hey Girl…

…It’s my birthday! Haha, I wonder when I have to update the description in my blogs about-text from “twenty something” to “closer to her fifties”… Because today I reached a quarter of a century. I’m old! But I still get to keep my childish style and kittenish attitude, right? And  play a little silly person once in a while?

Some time ago...

It’s been a while from this!

More than worrying about age crisis, I feel contented having had the life I’ve had though, with so many wonderful experiences and relatively little bad things happening to me to this age. Having the best parents and being able to meet all kinds of wonderful people all over the world I can now call friends, to mention just a few of the things I’m joyful for.

To celebrate my birthday, I decided it’s time to switch the winter coat for my spring jacket and dress up to a new dress, but not in too grown-up-style one. As a birthday present for myself I had naturally ordered a package from Forever21 a week before… Isn’t this the age I can start dreaming the name of the clothing brand would have been possible for me? 😀

My favorite accessory — not for sale (if he learns to behave, that is…. ;)). 25 years and less than 6 months of life experience in the same picture.

Grace

When ever a new ferry starts traveling from my home town, it’s a big deal among the locals. So was Viking Grace, when it started taking passengers to Stockholm in January. On Sunday, I got to see what all the fuzz was about. And I must admit, even though I don’t think the boat it still a world-class cruise ship, there was significant improvement to its predecessor, Viking Isabella. I loved how the decor was stylish, modern and yet playful. It looked like they had especially invested in light because there were all kinds of funky lamps…

Black & Gold

Yesterday we headed to J’s sister’s wedding to Helsinki. I’m glad that event-wise this year seems have a really good start compared to last falls downward spiral… Celebrating nuptials was also great because I got to bring into play my new fabulous finds from Nicaragua and the US (my dress was in danger to be buried in the closet to wait for summer and warmer days). Apart from few small accessories my outfit consisted of “souvenir” clothes. So here’s my small moment as a fashion blogger and yesterdays outfit:
