I've been MIA

I am so sorry I have been MIA past weeks. I didn't mean to do that but at first I was so upset about my dad and then we had Fresher's Week and now school has started and suddenly I'm super busy. Now I finally managed to find time to update my blog!

As I said, school has started and so far I love it. I don't remember if I've mentioned that I study English and Film Studies here in London. This is my first year and also my first week of college so I'm a bit confused and over-excited from time to time. :) It takes me about 25 minutes to get to school from my apartment. First I walk to the tube station which takes like 5 minutes and then it takes 15 minutes by tube to the other station and then I have to walk 2 more minutes to get to our campus. So it's not too far away, is it?

This year I have to take 8 modules, 6 in English and 2 in Film Studies. All of them sound so much fun. Like Reading Poetry or Writing London. I don't know if they really are fun but I'll find that out sooner or later. :) I really think I'm in right place here. I enjoy walking around the campus and I've got so many new friends already.

Oh crap, now I need to go! I have to get ready for a party!

Daddy, how can you walk out on me now?

How could he does this to me, his own daughter? I know I haven't been part of his life before this but that's not my fault. I didn't know I was adopted until this summer. I'm happy I have great, loving family but it still hurts. I know I don't need him but what if I want to know him? Maybe he could tell me something about my mom too. My family won't talk about her. They don't understand I need to know.

Thank you all who have been there for me. Special thanks for my lovely friends on MCMB! You rock!


Over the rainbow

My lovely little doggie is now gone.

I miss him.

Thank god I still have my little ones, CeeCee

and Flow

Aren't they cute?


I'm trying to find my way

Hi guys, sorry I haven't posted anything in ages but I've been busy. Okey, not really. But I got new job and Bastian was here and...endless excuses! Anyway, now I'm here and I'm going to tell you something about me. As you may know, I'm short (around 5'1") and finding clothes that fit is sometimes almost impossible. Couple of months ago my friend told me about this awesome site. Before entering that site I had no idea what my body shapy was, what colours suit me or what my face shape was. Maybe it was good, maybe not. Either way now I know those things and it's easier to decide what to wear or buy. So I have round face, rectangular body and my colour palette is Soft Summer. Before this I was so interested in fashion but now that I know what suits me, I also care about it more.

I still do have a problem with finding clothes small enough. Shortening hemlines isn't my favorite past time, you know. Thank god I live in UK now and we have stores that sell petite fashion (e.g. Miss Selfridge's). I've also learned to love Gap jeans which is good because Gap sells also short leg jeans. I couldn't live without those! Now I sound like some kind of paid blogger but I'm not. So I'm just telling how I feel and although I wouldn't mind if they paid me for doing so, they don't.

Susie, are you happy now?

In the middle of chaos

Now I know what chaos is. After seeing what those riots did to this city I felt so bad. Why did they have to destroy everything? I cannot understand the point behind all that violence. Maybe it is not my job to judge other people but my opinion is if there was a reason for the riots (and I believe there was), it didn't become clear. There are other, much efficient ways, to make people listen to what you have to say.

My next post will be the Summer Playlist: Finnish Edition. I try to post it tomorrow but I won't promise anything. I might be busy with other stuff. ;)

Piccadilly Line takes me home

Getting lost in London is the best way to get to know it. So I got lost, many times. After I found myself at Starbucks drinking latte, I knew I would absolutely love living here. Here are some photos I took today. Sorry about the quality! I used my Canon Ixus 105 instead of my systen camera which would've been better. Anyways here's what I saw.

Very original, aren't they? Tower Bridge, The Tower and post box. Other pictures weren't publish-worthy. :)

Tomorrow I will unpack some of the book boxes and learn how to use the dvd-player. Don't know if I have time to do anything else. ;D Only two weeks till Bastian brings Flow here! And of course it's awesome to see Bastian too. I miss ya! <3

Behind brown eyes

As some of you may know I'm addicted to music. I started piano lessons when I was 6 and learnt to play guitar when I was 14. My piano doesn't fit in my apartment so I have to settle for keyboard. It's not nearly as good as real piano but it does. My piano is Yamaha and I think it's te best. I've tried other pianos but they don't sound right. But you cannot argue about taste. :)

Picture from here
I don't love only playing music but also listening to it. Nothing is more fun that listening to music in the car full of friends. I would love to do a roadtrip with my pals. We could have some summer mix cd and we could sing along and be crazy. Doesn't that sound just awesome?

Picture from here
Last week I was writing a letter to my grandma. It was weird to write in Finnish. I'm so used to write only in English. :P My family thinks it's weird that I have more non-Finnish friends than Finnish friends. But what can I say? I went to international school after all. Many of my friends from school are from some other country. Sophie is half-French, Bastian is half-Spanish. I'm half something. I still don't know what nationality my dad is/was.

Oh, it's that late already! I was going to go running but I don't know if it's a good idea. Maybe if Bastian will come with me. I'll go to call him. Have a nice weekend!

You are special

My amazing and gorgeous friend Nikki's birthday was yesterday and I really wanted to give her a present but since she lives in US and I live in Finland it was quite impossible. So I thought I'd give her at least something and came up with this:

Original picture from here.

Nikki, girl you ROCK!


Breakfast at Sophie's

Last night I fell asleep at 4 am after watching three movies. I woke up when Sophie called me at 8:15 am and I wasn't happy at all. She had huge fashion emergency so I had to leave my lovely bed and be there for her because she is there for me no matter when I need her. So I went over to her place and there were banana-chocolate pancakes and walnut syrup waiting for me. I have to admit they were delicious! Sophie said she felt so bad when she realised I had been sleeping. She's such a good bestie. <3

After I came back home I took Flow for a walk and then called Bastian. It felt like we hadn't seen each other in ages and I missed him so much. He was just about to go to the park to play soccer with his friends so I promised to go to watch them play. It was hilarious! Bastian is actually good at soccer but the other guys weren't.

Picture from here
I was going to write something smart but I forgot what it was. People who read this may think I'm just another dumb blond but actually I am not. I'm not shallow either.Hello, I read the Guardian and other newspapers. And I'm interested in politics and concerned of global warming and stuff. Although I don't write about them it doesn't mean I don't think about them. But anyway since I can't remember what I was going to write I'll go to buy crisps and continue my movie marathon!

Sleepless in Helsinki

No work today! And no more double-shifts, thank God. Past two weeks have been crazy. I've worked more than my boss (which isn't much btw) and I have barely had time to sleep. My bestie, Sophie, has been great support: She has spent hours drinking coffee and waiting for me to get home. Bastian as been the best bf ever with bringing me lunch and driving me to work when I was so tired I couldn't even drive. I love him for that. And for other reasons too, obviously. ;)

I'm trying to pack but it's hard to decide what to take with me. I'm allowed to take only 2 bags, both can weight up to 23 kg and then one smaller bag that can weight no more than 10 kg. But Bastian will drive through Sweden, Germany and France to England and he'll bring my lovely little dog when he comes. So I could do so that I take only the necessities with me and he'll bring the rest. Great idea, isn't it?

I'm going to watch some chick-flicks tonight and maybe also tomorrow. At least Clueless, Breakfast at Tiffany's (my all-time fave, I love Audrey!!!), Pretty Woman, The Women and Whip It. I hope you all have nice week! I'll be back soon-ish, I promise.

The voice of summer

Sorry guys I haven't posted anything for so long time. I just haven't felt like writing. Shocking, I know! Usually I write 24/7 but maybe it's good to take a break every once in a while. I just wish a break would mean laying on the beach sunbathing but no, it means working. Double shifts. Kill me now! I love my job and don't mind the extra money but if I continue like this Im going to go nuts. That won't be pretty.

Picture from here
So a lot has happened after my last post here. I travelled to Turkey with my mom and we spent there a lovely week sunbathing and relaxing. When we came back my best guy friend, Bastian, told me he LOVES me. And I confessed that I had had a crush on him for very long time. And I decided to go to college in London. Not only because Bastian goes to Birmingham but also because London is one of my favorite cities in the world. Although the weather could be more sunny and warm. But at least they have Starbucks! And Camden which is really cool place.

Picture from here
I'm excited to move to UK but it's a bit scary too. I've never lived or spend more than a month abroad if you don't count my exchange year in US of America. Great times, great times. <3 At first I was going to choose on campus accomodation but then my aunt told she'll move to New York for at least a year and said I could live in her apartment I thought it would be better option. Why to waste money? It's not like I have too much money and could pour it down the drain. The tuition costs a lot so I'm happy that I don't have to pay rent.

I'd better publish this post before my laptop decides to delete it or do somehting else as annoying. Will post more soon!

Sorry for the long silence but I've had so much going on. I broke up with my boyfriend and it wasn't easy for me. He is the biggest jerk I've ever met but I really loved him. He hurt my feelings really bad. But I'm trying to move on. My friends have been there for me and I appreciate that mora than they can even imagine. Thanks huns! <3


Hurt me and I show you how much I don't care

I have to make one of the biggest decisions of my life and my closest peeps aren't making it easy for me. I graduate on June 4th and hopefully start college in September. Where? Don't know yet. I have conditional offer from King's College London (<3) and also from Uni of Glasgow but I applied for couple of school in Italy and Finland too and I'm not sure where I want to be next year. My boyfriend wants me to move to Italy with him. He is going back there in late July but I want to stay here until school starts again. So he got mad at me and we aren't talking to each other. I'm afraid that this is the end of our relationship and it makes me sad. Maybe we're both too young. At least I am.

Sorry again for that long silence. I broke my wrist (left one, thank god) a week ago and typing is so freaking slow with only one hand. And I'm losing my mind because I can't do anything fun and I have already watched dozens of movies and also read few books. So I'm getting a bit bored. Could somebody please save me?

Good morning sunshine :)

Sorry for the long silence but my internet connection didn't work until today and it's too annoying to write a blog with iPhone.

My 30 days challenge is halfway. I skip number 14 because I don't have picture of my fave teacher and I bet she wouldn't want her face in my blog anyway. :)

I know I keep doing this but I find other Samanthas more interesting. That's Samantha from Samantha Who? series.

Day 16 - A picture of your dream cell phone

Picture from here
I already have iPhone but it doesn't sparkle! How unfair, isn't it? Just kidding!

I skip 17 because I don't have mp3-player. Seriously.

Day 18 - A picture of your room

Picture from here
My room is messy. It's also full of stuff although I just moved in. How is that possible?

Day 19 - A picture of your favorite musical instrument(s)

Picture from here
I play the piano and guitar. :) Here I have my keyboard but I also have piano but it's so big so I left it to my parents.


We will be remembered

Hey there. Yeah, I mean YOU. K, I'm bored out of my mind. Tonight we (me + my awesome friends Char, Elle and Sara) go for a picnic. I'm responsible for drinks and I went to Alko (national liquor company) to buy something girly. Tomorrow we'll have "wedding" to attend, i.e. we shall watch Kate & William's wedding and drink champagne and dress up properly. We have even hats!

Day 13 - A picture of your friends

Sorry, that's all you're gonna get. My friends have their privacy and I respect it. I have permission to use their names but no pictures! Hope you're not disappointed. :)


Never give up

First day at work after vacation. Fun. Not. I woke up at 6 and my shift started at 7. From 9 to 11.30 I had nothing to do so I surfed on the net with my lovely iPhone.I boss thinks I'm insane because I first cried and soon after that I laughed my ass of. I was MCMBing, that's the reason for my behavior.

So now it's time for today's picture!
Day 12 - A picture of your favorite food

Picture from here

K, that may not look delicious but it is. I love pasta and Italians make world's best pasta. I'm not a good cook but I'm learning all the time. Yesterday I made my very first Italian dinner: polenta with baccala. This is funny, I mean the fact that I'm not used to cook, because I love baking. I make cupcakes, biscotti, pies, whatever sounds good. Today I'm going to make Nutella crostata. I love Nutella! :D


Who says you're not perfect?

I'm on my way to the airport (Fiumicino) with my bf and his family. I'm so glad this visit is over although I don't wanna go back to home. It has been exhausting to act like normal person. Just kidding! For reals we had to sleep in different rooms and all we get to do when his parents were there was hold hands. Of course we tried to spend as much time as possible outside to house alone. ;)

Day 11 - A picture of your favorite drink

Picture from here

I like girly drinks. Like those jelly drinks. And Sex on the beach, Strawberry daiquiri and so on. I do not drink alcohol very often but when we have girls night we go to bar and have fun. It's that innocent. :) I don't want to lose control, I don't like that feeling. And I can't drink much because it makes me feel sick. And throwing up is one of the things I truly hate.


Easter bunnies

Yesterday we went to Vatican City to see the Pope. It was awesome. :) Today I have been packing my clothes and I had to buy a new suitcase 'cause I have bought so much clothes. Hope I won't have to pay extra for overweight luggage..

Day 10 - A picture of what you like to do

Picture from here
I love dancing! I do not dance ballet anymore because I'm too tall for that but I do capoeira (it's mix of dance and martial arts), lyrical jazz and show/disco. Dancing is so fun and it keeps me fit. :P I'm so diappointed we don't have cheerleading at school's. It would have been my kind of sport. Of course we have sports clubs that organise cheerleading but it's not the same thing.

Day 03 - A picture of what you did today

Picture from here

I sat four hours in a train. Let me tell you one thing about Italian trains: they are ALWAYS late. Last time when I was in Italy there was a storm and all trains were late. I had to wait 5 hours at the station and the first train never arriveded so I went to change tickets to next train and the booking clerk just said "It will come, it is not cancelled" although the screen behind him said my train was cancelled. Do you know how hard it is to explain these things in English to an Italian? Never try, trust me! :D

29 more to go

Before I go to picture challenge, I have something special for you. At the moment I'm in Venice, queen of the Adriatic. We arrived here last night around 9 pm and today we'll walk around the city, maybe visit one of the islands. Our hotel (hotel Caneva) is 5 mins walk from Piazza San Marco and also 5 mins walk from Rialto Bridge. This is my second time in Venice and first time when I stay in the city, not in Mestre. :) Here are some photos I took last time. Today I will take some more photos. :)

Picture from here
Topshop's Belted Midi Cape Dress or Gap's Tiered Dress, don't know which one yet. I love both of them! I'm petite (5'1" only) so it's hard to find the perfect dress. Or jeans.

Weekend in Naples

Yesterday we drove (well, my boyfriend, Jake, drove) from Latina to Naples. Have you heard the saying "See Naples and die"? Well I really hope I won't die yet. So this was my very frist time in Naples and I really enjoyed every moment there. They make world's best pizza in Naples, believe me. Also gelato (Italian ice cream) is delicious there.

Our sightseeing tour took hours. Piazza del Plebiscito was impressive. It's the main piazza. Main sights are outside the town. We didn't see Herculaneum but we saw Pompeii and Vesuvius. And visited many museums. I like art, especially Botticelli and Michelangelo. I love the frecos in Sistine Chapel. :)

Now we're on our way back to Latina. Tomorrow I go shopping with Jake's sister Alice. She's so lovely! She promised to show me the best vintage shops in Rome and I'm eager to see them.

That's all for today. We soon arrive in Latina and I probably go to bed right away.

Citta di Latina, isn't it just beautiful?
This is just cool :D


Fresh start

I've been writing a blog for almost 2 years now and my non-Finnish friends have complained that they don't understand Finnish so here you go guys. My spelling is pretty bad, sorry for that. I speak better English than I write. I never choose correct preposition and I really think they're useless. :D I use too much smileys, sorry for that too if it's annoying.

Spanish Steps

At the moment I'm in Rome, sitting in a lovely café near Piazza di Spagna. It's, by the way, my fave place here. It's fun to sit on Spanish Steps and watch people. My second fave place here is Fontana di Trevi. Always when I'm in Rome, I go and throw a coin in to the fountain, to be ensured a return to Rome. :)

Fontana di Trevi

I've taken those photos today. Please don't copy them without my permission! Now I drink my latte macchiato and then I go and take some more photos! Ciao bellas!
