Flutterby pet ID tag by Ivy Moon

I'm in love with the Ivy Moon pet ID tags. They make the perfect little pretties for our fluffy friends. You can also use this as a pendant and wear your pet's name close to your heart :) I say "sweeeet" and my pup says "wuff"!

Celebrations Gift Registry - blog makeover

Hi lovelies! I just installed a new blog design for Celebrations Gift Registry. It was super fun to work on this design. I loved doing something a bit different and something so girly! I've never done a commercial blog, so it was a new challenge for me. What do you think, how did I do? 

Ps. If you're getting married, you should definitely pop over and take a peek for wedding planning inspiration

My happy faces.

27 October 2011



These are my happy faces. And guess why? I finally get to cuddle with my beau today!!! We haven't seen each other in a month, so this is just the best feeling ever! We are staying the weekend at my mum's, because my niece and our goddaughter is getting baptized on Saturday. In Finland, that's also when the baby's name is revealed. It's been a bit weird just to call her baby or the little one, so I can't wait to find out!

Cute vintage unicorn earrings via Sarah Riley

Oooh unicorns! These earrings are just adorable and remind me of my childhood years when My Little Pony was a must! I would've definitely worn these back then and I still would. I think jewelry should always be fun and create discussion - and these cuties would totally do the trick!

The Art of Homemaking - blog makeover

25 October 2011

The past week or so, I've had the privilege to work on a blog makeover for Megan at The Art of Homemaking. When I first got introduced to Megan's blog, I got this really homely feeling from her posts. They're just full of family fun and warmth, and this is the feeling I wanted to bring into the design as well.  Megan is also a writer and an entrepreneur, so the blog needed to have a professional touch too. And I think we've accomplished both goals. Take a peek and get to know Megan and her family better. 

Ps. While I was working on Megan's blog, I've been drooling over these butternut squash doughnuts. They look divine!

Crochet Heart Brooches via Manzanita

Look at these cuties! Now that the weather is getting a bit chillier (at least here up north!), these little crocheted heart brooches make the perfect accessories. I'm feeling all fuzzy inside just by looking at these images. I think they'd go so well with my orange beanie. If you're looking for warm and cute chilly-season pretties, you should take a peek in Rebecca's shop. She's got some gems there!

Ps. Check out the Manzanita website too!

I'm a bag lady!

22 October 2011

Hi pretties! I got my new handbag from Etsy yesterday and could not love it more! It's the perfect color and size, and the leather is so soft. The shop is called Siam Leather and I warmly recommend it if you're looking for a new leather handbag or purse. I got my bag in a week and some of the items in his shop ship for free (this pretty included). So I'm a very happy bunny!

Ps. She's definitely coming with me tonight for a night in town. She needs to meet the world and the world needs to meet her ;)

Hello.

20 October 2011

Today in iPhone photos.

I'm still busy with design work, so I'm just popping over for a quick hello! How do you like my new mug? We all have our "signature" cups in the office and I've been missing one because I haven't come across the right mug. But today I found it at the Hello Kitty shop... and it's so darn cute. 

Ps. This morning the sky was all pretty with different shades of pinks and purples. The perfect start to a day!

Jewelry I heart today - sponsor love edition

19 October 2011


Hi lovelies! While I'm working on my design projects, I want you to meet my new sponsor Sarah from A Lost Feather. I'm so happy to have her become a part of my blog, because I'm such a fan of her illustrations and jewelry. They're gorgeous! And this locket that features her original illustration Girl and Wolves is my favorite. Go take a peek in her shop and blog. You'll fall in love. I did.

Modern + vintage

18 October 2011


What do you think about this colorful combo? I'm loving the classy vibe mixed with the fun colors - it's chic but not too serious. I'd totally wear these for a client meeting or a night out with my beau. Oh, and how cute would a pair of oxfords look with these pretties? I'm thinking... for example these

First impressions - blog makeover

17 October 2011

Hey pretties! I finished a new blog design for Maria Elyse at First Impressions tonight. I'm quite excited to share this with you because I'm really happy with the way it turned out. Maria wanted something simple and clean but pretty and etheric. And I think we accomplished it! Pop over to Maria's blog and take a peek.

Ps.  I absolutely adore Maria's style. While working on the design, I've been swooning over her outfit posts - they're simply magical! Each photo is like art!

Vintage barracuda necklace via Pinguim

Ooh - I love this necklace! I think it's rad! I'm no fan of barracudas in real life, but I'd totally wear this one around my neck. The wiggly tail makes it fun, even though the necklace kinda has a little mean look about it. I think this pretty would make a cool combo with a girly dress. Just to spice things up a bit! Don't you think?

Newbies.

16 October 2011


Hi friends! Sorry about the quiet blog over the weekend. I just needed a couple of days hiatus after a busy week. I've enjoyed some quiet time, the outdoors with the pup and I also did some shopping yesterday. I found the perfect Vagabond boots! They're nothing fancy, but very comfortable and practical for everyday use. Just what I needed! I also got this olive green cardigan - it's so cosy and the color is so me! What have you been up to?

My iPhone photos.

Hi lovelies! How's your week been so far? I've been working my little (?!) butt off this week with design work and still have work lined up for the rest of the week. And that's such an awesome thing!!! :) But working a lot means I haven't really left home... other than go to my day job. Do I sound like a workaholic? ;) But I have enjoyed some candle light looking at the big stunningly colorful tree in front of our apartment building and getting cuddles from Salli. And actually that's been enough to keep me happy!

Ps. The effects on the first photo are done with Picfx. It's a fun photo app for iPhone - you should give it a go! :)

SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS by Edu Barba

I think these two make such a perfect combo! I definitely wouldn't mind adding this stunning Herman Miller chair to my living room. They're such timeless design. But... if only did have a some extra euros in my pocket. Maybe one day! And the art print couldn't be more fun! ;)

Beautiful Hope from Pansy Lane wearing the Gigantor Mothra necklace by My Selvaged Life

I looooove this necklace! It's the perfect pretty for a cosy autumn attire! And the technique used very intriguing as well - the pendant is made by taking a vintage illustration of a butterfly and applying the paper image to a wood board and cutting it with laser. Pretty neat, don't you think!

Ps. You should take a peek in the My Selvaged Life necklace gallery. I'm swooning over here. They're all very eclectic and cool!

Our party decor and some mini cakes

Hey sweet peas! How are you today? We had such a fun night yesterday celebrating my birthday and welcoming my flatmate to her new home! We had a house full of laughter, love and great friends. Just loveliness! And I even whipped together a little autumn garland, using napkins and beautiful autumn leafs. It turned out pretty cute! I also baked some chocolate chip and lemon mini cakes. I'm still learning how to bake with our gas oven, so they didn't rise properly... but tasted darn good. Well you can't really go wrong with a topping that has cream, sour cream and powdered sugar in it. Soooo yummy! 

Ps. If you want the recipe, just let me know! :)

Jewelry I heart today - birthday edition

8 October 2011

Hello pretties! There's a cute little vintage shop near my work, and I popped over yesterday to see if I could find a little birthday gift for myself. And I did! I bought this fun bracelet made out of 70s vintage buttons. It'll look super sweet with my heart necklace. Now I just need to figure out what I'm going to wear and I'm all set for tonight's party!

Fall dessert tree by Tiger in a Jar

Today I'm turning 28. Only two years away from the big 3-0! How did this happen? Oh well, luckily I'm still a kid at heart! But I swear I have more wrinkles today than yesterday... when I was still young, 27, footloose and carefree! We're having little party tomorrow night with my flatmate, so I'm planning to take it easy tonight. I need to have enough energy to bake a cake and perhaps some other yummy treats for our guests. Yesterday I came across this amazing little video about a DIY cupcake tree by Tiger in a Jar. The execution of the video is just so cute and the whole idea super fun. I should really try something a bit more creative with my party preparations tomorrow. Do you have any fun, quick and easy ideas? Here's a few really pretty ones that I found.
