GOODIES FROM ISADORA

12 comments:

When I was chosen to be a guest blogger for finnish Cosmopolitan, IsaDora gave me a makeup bag which include their products. If you haven't heard this make up brand before, it's okay because it was new for me too. IsaDora is a Swedish beauty brand that offers premium quality yet affordable make-up products. The brand was launched in 1983 in Sweden, and has rapidly become one of the most successful and fastest growing cosmetics brands internationally.

Picture #1 : Eye Shadow Quartet palettes in Northern Lights and Lynx

Both eyeshadow palettes are really shimmery for my taste, but for night looks, these will be perfect!
The colors are really pretty but I notice that you shouldn't blend the colors too much because otherwise the color will disappear and the only thing that's left is the shimmer.

Picture #2 : Dynamic Lash Growth Mascara and Serum.

These was pretty interesting to me because I've never used a mascara that also makes your lashes longer. The first one with the black cap is a mascara and the silver one is a serum. To have some sort of results, you need to use both of them everyday for 30 days.

Picture #3 : Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Purple de Luxe and lipstick in Coral Punch.

When I first was the lip gloss, I though it would look crazy after applying but actually it gives shimmer and makes your lips look fuller. The lipstick was love at first sight. It feels so smooth and moisturizing and it has become my essential lipstick when I want natural looking lips.

Picture #4 : Cream Mousse Eye Shadow in Galaxy and Glitter Eyeliner in Gold

Haha. When I first saw the eye shadow, I was 100% sure that it was eyeliner. This color turned to look really nice in my eyelids even though I don't wear dark eyeshadow that often. The only con about the eye shadow is the smell : it wasn't pleasant.

I've never owned a golden eyeliner so I was happy to have it now. I think the best place to apply this the inner corners in your eyes.


Picture #5 : Velvet Touch Compact Powder in Medium Beige Mist and B.B Cream - All-in-one make up in Fair

I don't use the powder as a powder because it's little bit too dark for my skin tone; I use it to contour my face. It contours my cheeks, nose, forehead basically everything really well and it doesn't leave strange marks in my face. During the summer, when I'm tanner, I'll use it as a powder.

I was so excited when I saw the bb-cream because I've always wanted to try out new bb-creams and this is definitely the best one that I've used! The color blends perfectly and it matches really well to my neck! The texture feels light but it still hides all the blemishes and overall gives a nice complexion.

THE COAT

Tämä ihana takki löytyi Cubuksen alerekistä Cosmopäivänäni. Mulla oli ollut pitkään haaveena pitkä takki, jota on mukava käyttää myös hameiden ja mekkojen kanssa. Takki antaa mukavan siluetin – käytit sitä auki tai kiinni...
I bougt this comfortable, long coat from Cubus in the beginning of January. Since the day I bought this coat, I've been starting to wear skirt more often in daily bases. The coat really warm, because of the length and it also covers your behind which is always a good thing...

CARTE de VISITE

Olin niin iloinen kun postimies toi minun ihkauudet käyntikorttini oven taakse. Kesti aikansa, että sain nämä tilattua koska en halunnut hätiköidä logon suhteen. Halusin käyntikorttien olevan ajattomia ja tyylikkäitä, sillä en halunnut kyllästyä logoon. Olen todella tyytyväinen miltä kortit näyttää – kyllä odotus kannatti! Mitäs siellä tykätään? :) 
 It took me a long time to figure out how I wanted my business cards to look like. I didn't want to rush or anything, because I wanted to design a business card that is timeless and chic so I really had to be patient. Now that I see the results, I'm so happy how they turned out to be, and being patient really paid off! What do you think about them? :)

OUTFIT FOR ANY OCCASION

12 comments:






I've always loved the combination of burgundy and mustard. These two colors forms a interesting and chic package. Even though we are close to spring, which means pastels and bright colors; some colors are timeless and can be worn in any season. 

I wanted to build an outfit that is perfect for work and after work. Whether you were going on a date or movies, this outfit works perfectly for that! I love clothes that can be worn any occasion because who knows what happens after work. 





I started to build the outfit around burgundy colored pullover, which looks great on anybody! To play it save, I didn't want to pair the pullover with monochrome pants or bright red pants, because I wanted to keep the outfit simple for work, so good, old, black pants were the perfect choice for that. 

After searching for the perfect ankle boots, I came across these leather boots by Friis & Company. These shoes are now on sale, so if you are interested, you better be fast! ;) 

This trendy and modern purse by Coccinelle, was the perfect choice to bring more color and texture to the outfit. The purse can also be worn as a clutch which kills two birds with one!

CUPRO & FAUX LEATHER

17 comments:

Vietin viime lauantain siskoni ja hänen miehensä luona. Oli mukava rentoutoa sohvalla ja nauttia toistemme seurasta. Halusin pukea ylleni jotain mukavaa ja tyylikästä, vaikka tarkoitus oli vain katsoa elokuvia ja makoilla sohvalla. Olen täysin haltioissani Minni f. Ronyan tulevan SS13 -malliston vaatteista joista osa on valmistettu cupro -nimisestä kankaasta; hengittää kuin puuvilla, mutta tuntuu silkiltä ihoa vasten. Koska paita oli todella hempeän oloinen, tiesin tekonahkahameeni tuovan asuun enemmän eloa ja tekstuuria. Tiedän että asu näyttää hieman juhlalliselta, mutta uskokaa tai älkää: asu oli todella mukava yllä. Ja ihan tiedoksi, mulla oli yllä kunnon puuvillasukkahousut, mutta siskoni kissan ansiosta, ne meni roskikseen. ;)

I spent last Saturday with my sister and her boyfriend. It was so nice to relax and enjoy each others company. I wanted wear something that was comfortable and chic at the same time. I really love this shirt from Minni f. Ronya's SS13 collection. The shirt that I'm wearing is made of cupro, which is a fabric that breathes like cotton, and feels like silk on your skin. Because the shirt was so soft looking, I wanted to pair my faux leather skirt to add more texture. I know this outfit may look little bit formal for casual, relax day, but believe me, the outfit was comfy! And just so you know, I was wearing stockings, but thanks to my sisters cat, they had to go to garbage. ;)

MY SHOE COLLETION :: HIGH HEELS

Käsi ylös jos RAKASTAT kenkiä! Aloitin vähän aika sitten tekemään aktiivisesti videoita Youtubeen, ja yksi niistä on ylläoleva video jossa esittelen mun korkokengät. Halusin jakaa kengät omiin videoihin,  jotta niistä ei tulisi liian pitkiä... eli kenkävideoita on tulossa lisää. ;)
Olette varmasti huomannut etten kirjoittele omasta elämästi ja yms blogini puolella enää. No, halusin keskittyä pitämään tämän blogin muotipainotteiseina, joten siksi youtube -videoiden tekeminen oli hyvä idea sillä minun ei tarvinnut "uhrata" blogiani. Olisi aivan mahtavaa jos voisitte käydä tilaamassa mun kanavaa! Yritän tehdä joka tai joka toinen päivä videon sinne. Nyt siellä on jo 12 videota katsottavana, joten olisi ihanaa jos voisitte käydä katsomassa ne.

Raise your hand up if you LOVE shoes! I wanted to make a video, where I show my high heels. Theres will be more shoe collection videos because these are just my high heels. Okay, you know that I don't talk about my life so often here...well...the reason why I created a youtube channel was because I wanted to tell more about myself, without "sacrificing" my blog. I really want you guys to know who Heidi is. So if you want to know more about me and my life etc, please SUBSCRIBE to my youtube channel! I try my best to upload new video every single day or every other day. I hope to see you on YoutubeLand! xx

GO HARD OR GO HOME

You've seen me wearing my burgundy faux leather pants for many times in my blog. Well, I've been starting to have more and more feelings towards to real leather pants. These pants are by Current/Elliot, which is a brand that I haven't heard before. Familiar or not, these pants would deserve to be in my closet...right now. 

Even though the pants are leather, doesn't mean that I can't wear leather from head to toe. Leather t-shirt by Gucci is a bold statement piece to any outfit. I've seen many celebrities Rita Ora, Rihanna, Ciara and Nicole Richie. If they can pull it off, so can I! 

I found really chic pair of leather/suede knee boots by Yves Saint Laurent. Even the smallest amount of suede, softens the leather that's going on in this outfit. And I love the color combination of olive and brown – so down to earth.



I did mentioned this outfit is leather all the way, but only 75% because Stella McCartney doesn't use real leather in her products – good for her! I really love this bag, but if one day I purchase this bag to, let's hope the quality of the bag is close to real leather bags because I don't say goodbye to it too soon...

And last but not least, is Arty ring by Yves Saint Laurent. This gorgeous ring is the QUEEN of all rings.

BEFORE SUNSET

Eilen saimme nauttia pitkästä aikaa aurinkoisesta säästä. Mulle sää oli täydellinen uuden nahkahameen, takin, sukkahousujen ja kaulakorun ulkoiluttamiseen. 

Finally we had a chance to enjoy sunny weather in Helsinki. I can't remember when was the last time when the sun came say hello to us. It was the perfect day to take my new leather skirt, coat, stockings and necklace for a walk.

IF MONEY WASN'T A PROBLEM

14 comments:

Sorry that I didn't post a new article yesterday, but I was extremely busy. If I only had a boyfriend who'd take my outfit pictures everyday, but since I don't have, taking outfits isn't piece of cake. Because I couldn't show my outfit from yesterday, here's a collage of garments that I'd love to wear at the moment. 

I don't know that came to me when I laid my eyes on a bright blue knit by Jil Sander. The knit is so magnificent that I'd love to wear it...if I only had the money to buy it. It's so chic and edgy at the same time that it didn't need a statement necklace, which I tend to wear almost every outfit. 

What I said about the knit in the beginning, I have to say the same about the faux leather pants by H&M. The crazy zipper in the front may give big no's to many out there, but I think they just bring the outfit to the next lever. 

The bag won't need explanations. 

Sandra from 5 inch and up, introduce me these boots in the first place. First I was like; "those are not my cup of tea", but after thinking and seeing a lot different outfits, they suddenly looked perfect to me. 

COSMOPOLITAN TÄHTIBLOGGAAJA

44 comments:


Jos seuraat blogiani Facebookissa, olet varmasti tietoinen että Suomen Cosmopolitan valitsi minut heidän helmikuun tähtibloggaajaksi. Olen todella iloinen, että minulla annettiin tällainen mahdollisuus sillä en uskonut että tulisin bloggaamaan lehdelle, jota olen lukenut vuosia.
Eilen mulla oli tähtibloggajan päivä, eli tässä hieman kuvia päivästäni.

If you follow me on Facebook, you already knew that finnish Cosmopolitan chose me to be their guest blogger for February. I'm very happy for the opportunity and to be honest, I was very shocked when they contacted me. I can't believe that in short amount of time I'll be blogging for magazine that I grew up with. 
So, my day with Cosmo started  9AM with delicious breakfast at the headquarters of finnish Cosmopolitan.


Aamupalan jälkeen otimme taksin, ja suuntasimme kohti Forumin kauppakeskusta. Tie johti Cubukseen, jossa minulle lahjoitettiin lahjakortti. Lahjakortille jäi vielä mukavasti rahaa, vaikka sieltä tulikin ostettua kahden asun verran vaattetta.

After breakfast, we took a taxi to the centre of Helsinki. We headed to clothing store, Cubus where I received my gift card. I got plenty of time to build my outfit, but after finding grey coat and faux leather skirt, I knew the look that I wanted to create. The outfit is, in my opinion, really street chic and it's perfect for day and night. 


Kun lähdimme shoppailun jälkeen toimistolle, huomattiin että oltiin aikataulua edellä joten studiolla tuli hieman hengailtua ennen virallisia kuvia. Onneksi pian päästiin vauhtiin, ja meikkitaiteilija Kata Niemi loihti mulle upean smokey eye -silmämeikin. Yleensä pidän silmämeikin neutraalina kun taas huuliin panostan eri värein kuten punaisella, pinkillä tai oranssilla huulipunalla. Oli mukava että meikin pääpointti siirtyi huulistani silmiini. 

Meikin lisäksi, Kata loihti eloa mun tukkaan, jota en hirveästi huomioi. Mä mielummin käytän aamuni asuni valitsemiseen kuin hiuksieni laittamiseen sillä siihen menisi enemmän kuin puoli tuntia. Eli suuri kiitos Katalle, että annoit rakkautta ja huomiota hiuksilleni! 

Päivä huipentui kuvaksiin, jossa meillä oli todella mukavaa. Valokuvaajana oli ihana Pia Arnould, jonka valokuvattavana oli hauskaa! Katsoin onnistuneita otoksia, ja täytyy sanoa etten en malta odottaa että saan julkaista täällä blogin puolella niitä myös! 

After shopping, which took less time than we though it would, we went to the studio where finnish makeup artist Kata Niemi created really sexy smokey eye for me. Usually I keep my eyes really bare and use strong lip colors like red, pink and coral so it was cool to have the make up look other way around. 
She also gave attention to my hair, which I, unfortunately don't do. I rather spend one hour choosing my outfit that doing curls to my hair, so thank you Kata for giving some love to my hair. 

The best part of the day was the actual photo shoot. We had so much fun creating a scene where they wanted to take the shots and being in front of the camera was amazing. The pictures looked so great and I can't wait to share them with you guys. 


Illan päätteeksi, mulle lahjoitettiin meikkipussukka täynnä Isadoran meikkejä.

Kiitos koko kaikille jotka teki päivästä ikimuistoisen!

At the end of the day, I received a makeup bag, included products by IsaDora. 

Thank you to everyone who made this day possible!
