24: Red


My hunch was wrong, Sandman rudely lured me away before I managed to share these outfit pics from last night. We have a tradition in our family to dress up a little for the Yule dinner. I went casually with bare feet, a few mild curls and code red for the holidays' sake. (The dress is an old Stop Staring second hand find, in case someone wishes to know.)

Dorothy nails. I snapped my fingers three times and I was home!


Odd fact of the moment; I can't get this song out of my head today. It just echoes and echoes and echoes in my mind in a crude way. "It's like dying on Christmas Day". My subconscious seems to be in a jolly festive mood!

  7. I went red for Christmas as well. My mother hates me wearing black.

    1. That's so strange! Black is the most elegant colour by far. ;)

    2. She feels young people should wear colours, ostensibly. I expect she really thinks black is a depressing colour.

  8. You're so beautiful! I'm a reader from Sweden with kind of your style, couldn't you write a post about how you got so many readers, when you "suceeded" as a blogger, if you get what I mean? :) If you have any tip? Did you comment a lot in other blogs?

    I've blogged for so long and I've never found the answer!

    1. Thank you!

      I don't think anyone can say what's the key element in "success". Personally I haven't aimed for any success, I've never promoted my blog anywhere and I'm shamefully lazy at commenting (I wish to change that though, but I just always forget to comment!) I think blogs are best when people behind them just do something that feels genuine for themselves, and write about the things they truly enjoy and what inspires them. :)

  12. Voi sinä se vaan oot niin kaunis, ihan kuin joku taruolento <3 :> En tiedä, jostain iski se maaginen hetken mielijohde vaan tulla kiittämään ihanimmasta ja inspiroivimmasta blogista ikinä, tätä selaillessa päivä on aina aavistuksen verran parempi. Oon aikalailla tällainen hiljaisempi lukija, vissiin vain kerran aikaisemmin tänne jotain kommentoinut, mutta täällä ollaan aina anyways :---D

    1. Voi apua miten ihana kommentti, iiks! :D Kiitosta vaan hurjasti, sait kyllä hymyilemään leveästi! <3

  13. Saakohan sulle laittaa tänne kommenttia suomeksi? :D No mä teen niin, koska mun englannin kielen taito ei ole ihan sieltä parhaimmasta päästä... :) Ootko muuten ikinä aatellut aloittaa kirjoittamaan taas suomeksi(kin)? Ymmärrän kyllä englantia, mutta oishan se kiva suomeksi lukea. :)

    Sulla on aivan ihana tyyli kaikessa, pukeutumisessa, meikkaamisessa, sisustamisessa..... Tunnut tosi itsevarmalta rohkeelta ja ihanalta persoonalta ja mä arvostan sitä tosi paljon.

    Ootko ikinä muuten kuunnellut Lana Del Reyn musiikkia? Suosittelen kuuntelemaan, voin suositella sulle ainakin biisejä nimeltä Gods & Monsters ja Body Electric sekä Born To Die. Ne ovat omat lempparini. Kannattaa kuunnella muitakin!

    Nyt toivotan sulle vain onnellista uutta vuotta 2014 ja hyvää sunnuntai-illan jatkoa!

    1. No tottahan toki saa! Mun mielestä aina luonnollisempaa jos suomalaiset kommentoi suomeksi. :) Monet on kyselleet aionko vielä kirjoittaa suomeksi ja vieläkin tuntuu siltä että en. Kaksikielisyys vei mun mielestä liikaa aikaa, ja mulle on jotenkin aina taipunnut englannin kirjoittaminen helpommin, tuntuu luonnollisemmalta kuin lukijoita on niin eri puolilta maailmaa. Mut kenties vielä joku päivä!

      Ja kiitos ihanista sanoistasi! Lämmittää mieltä kuulla että jotain mukavaa fiilistä välittyy ruudun toiselle puolelle. :)
      Lana Del Reyta on jonkun verran tullut kuultua, ainakin Summertime Sadness ja A Star for Nick vanhemman tuotannon puolelta iskee omaan makuhermoon. Onnellista uutta vuotta sullekin!

    1. Hi sweetie, everything is alright. Thank you for asking! I was just very tired (body and soul) and decided to relax during the holidays and leave the calendar to Yule Eve. :)
