Haul Post: Massive Spring/Summer Haul

I don’t often do haul posts but I just wanted to share a few cute items I got for myself for the spring and, of course, for the summer!

fashion haul

As part of my haul, I bought these clothes from Sheinside:

1. Blue kimono – I haven’t owned a kimono before but I gave in to the recent kimono frenzy and got this one. I’m hoping it’ll protect me from too much sun during the summer (I get very bad sun rash and I burn easily).

2. The loveliest long summer dress – I adore these colors and it’ll be perfect for my trips to Istanbul and Barcelona! (I don’t own many long dresses so this is a welcome addition to my wardrobe.)

3. Crop top – I hate revealing my stomach but this one was on sale and I thought it looked cute (didn’t hurt that Karen Gillan has a similar one) so I thought maybe it’d inspire me to get into better shape.

The books I got from Amazon:

1. Attachments by Rainbow Rowell – I love Rowell’s books that this has been on my list of books to read for quite some time now.

2. True Whit – I got this for like a penny, so I thought I’d get it. Hills and The City are my guilty pleasures. Shh!!

Finally:

1. A fanny pack I got from New Look – it’s a cute festival bag and I’d love to be able to go out to festivals (Sonar in Barcelona and maybe Flow here in Helsinki) during the summer without a big tote I have lug around everywhere.

2. A ticket to see Wooden Wisdom – ELIJAH WOOD! Do I even need to say more? He’s DJing in Helsinki at club Kaiku (one of the three clubs I ever go to) in August and I had to get a ticket.

London Haul: So Much Fandomness

Here is FINALLY my London haul post! Been crazy busy at school because of the looming exam week that I haven’t had much time to post even though I have a lot of stuff waiting for you guys, like this post, tomorrow’s 5 Fandom Friday, Valentine’s post, etc.

So anyway, this post is just to highlight some of the AMAZING stuff I got when I was in London. First of all, I had already planned before the trip that I really wanted to visit The Who Shop, which is a shop and a museum dedicated just for Doctor Who! How brilliant is that? I got some stuff like magazines, earrings, postcards, and a T-shirt. But the main reason for my visit was the museum. They had so much cool stuff like props and costumes there!

who shop fandom

I also went to the Harry Potter shop at King’s Cross, which was super adorable, although majorly crowded. I did find the cutest Platform 9 3/4 mug from there though! (And some other stuff…)

Here you can see the full scope of everything I bought… So much fandom stuff! It made me super happy. Not pictured is the Buffy book that I ended up getting right before going to the airport on our way home. Gosh, I think I have a million Harry Potter shirts by now…

I also got bunch of stuff from Forbidden Planet and the Buffy book was actually from the Cinema Store so if you go to London, be sure to check them out!

fandom haul

Here are the very few non-fandom things I got. I had to grab a few books since it’s been a habit of mine forever. Also, I love bookstores in the UK! So, since I’ve been meaning to read more John Green’s books and I’ve wanted to read Fangirl for a while now, I grabbed these.

And what girl doesn’t need a new dress and a top every now and then? ;)

Tomorrow you can look forward to the latest 5 Fandom Friday! And I’ll try to get that Valentine’s Day recap post up asap :)

ALSO, I’d like to promo our English student paper BTSB, because our newest issue just came out and  wrote about fandom “sights” in London.

OOTD: Flow-y Top and a Long Vest

Another outfit post :) I recently got this new black long vest and I figured I’d pair it with something cute and flow-y – a.k.a. my Audrey Hepburn tunic top, which I bought from Indonesia last year.

I also wanted to combine them with my new black leggings, which I’ve reserved for tops that a slightly too short to be dresses but too long be just regular shirts. The leggings are the ones I got from Tallinn from Reserved.

Any thoughts on my OOTD?

Tallinn Haul

Finally I managed to transfer all my photos. It was a long time coming :) I wanted to do another small haul post since I got so much great stuff from my Tallinn trip!

White peplum top from River Island, 60$

They have run out of the blue skirt in Zara but there’s a pink one with the same shape and fabric here!

Reserved still has those joggers. :)

Magnificent Majestical Jewelry

I recently won Ingrid‘s Majestical jewelry giveaway and got a 20$ gift card to spend on their online store, and now I wanted to do a mini review about the jewelry that I ended up buying. After Ingrid told me I had won, I couldn’t wait at all and instead went ahead and ordered – after an hour of trying to choose between all the amazing pieces – a necklace and a pair of earrings. I chose to get real statement pieces because I normally just wear a lot of delicate jewelry. The necklace I got is not too over the top for my taste but is still very edgy and brilliantly spices up any outfit. The earrings are also really magnificent, perfect for some fabulous party!

The jewelry arrived really fast (usually I have to wait quite a long time for anything to arrive to Finland) and I can’t wait to wear my new lovelies! The necklace I already tried out – I love how it goes with anything from T-shirt and jeans to a fancy dress. The earrings I’ll wear next time I go out :)

Next I really want this beautifully bright pink pendant necklace!

Have you ever gotten any Majestical jewelry?

Apartment Haul

Me and my boyfriend decided recently to update our home decor a little bit and did a trip to Ikea (and a few other stores). We managed to find quite a lot of really nice things  and now our apartment looks nicer than ever. It’s amazing how cheap some of the items were; we managed to fit almost all the things we got into our original carpet budget, which was pretty mind-boggling.

Here’s what we got:

bedroom

For the bedroom: Gulört rug and BILLY bookcase from Ikea, couple of scented candles from H&M, a cake stand (which I’m using for jewelry and make-up), Olunda love letter and Olunda splash pictures from Ikea, a white candle dish from Ikea

apartment living room

For the living room: a tray from Kodin Säästöpiste, two Trådklöver rugs from Ikea, a cotton cushion cover from H&M, a LACK coffee table from Ikea
For the bathroom: a laundry basket from Kodin säästöpiste

What do you think of our purchases? :)
