new year, new start

I've decided to do lots of things this year - but blogging wasn't one of them. I woke up this morning and thought, why not! Maybe sharing some things here would give me more motivation. It feels so meaningless to do your make up and wear nice clothes if you're going nowhere - at least I could share them online, and it's always been awesome to communicate with my followers and other bloggers!

At first I should give you small update as it's been like forever since I last shared anything. Last year went by so fast, nothing happened but still at the same time, everything happened. Everything's changed and life is so different now.

So, I'm a dressmaker now. It's about impossible to get a seamstress job here.. If you wanna make clothes for a living, you should start your own business but that's definitely not an easy, stable and secure way to make a living. Maybe someday..
Currently I'm working in a clothing store - I really like it too. I should sew more so I wouldn't lose all my skills, and that's definitely what I'm working on a lot more this year.

I even have an industrial sewing machine and overlocker at home now!

The biggest thing is that - I'm still living in Finland! All those years that I had waited for my graduation and move to London... But still I'm here! Things don't always go the way you had planned, there's always something unexpected waiting for the perfect moment to happen...

So that's my life now; living in Helsinki with my girlfriend Jessica and my dog. We have a perfect home and I really like living here. Hoping not to get an overdose of purple! Almost everything is purple here - from my hair to the walls and even to the toilet seat cover - also the christmas tree was purple! (Unfortunately the pictures don't really show the real colours...)

I didn't really do much last year. I didn't spend much time sewing, and the times that I wore nice make up - I can easily count them on the fingers of one hand. Of course I did wear make up almost everyday, but it was only some black smokey eye. Nothing bold and exciting and colourful.

 I've felt so inspired and motivated lately and wanted to really start doing things again. Especially making clothes - that's what I really wanna do. Also, I wanna start experimenting with make up again. When I post pictures of my outfits to Lookbook - of course there has to be also matching make up to make the look complete!

So, stay tuned for the forthcoming posts this year!
