We drove around today lookin' for a nice place to spend the day. It's kinda a habit for us.. finding pretty places.. It is such a joy finding something special! So finally we ended up to the Suur-Saimaa area. There was a great beach in the end of the final road behind the trees.. There were just Saimaa and its islands in front of us. It was so pretty with just few other people around. <3 Only thing was that the beach was REALLY rocky (nothing like sand!) and water was quite cold, so no swimming today. But maybe that was a part of the prettiness. :)

It was almost perfect beach, so the beach hunt is still on. ;) I still can't believe (it's my frst summer here!) that I live so near such a pretty places. I just love lakes! <3 What a great day!
Lookin' over our friend's bird & hamster while they are gone. =) Riepu is a funny guy. Speakin' SO much! He loves the music from "Madagascar", "I like to move it move it"! He sings it too, changed some words but still. :D We played the song to him and he was all giddy, moved his head with the music and repeated the words. Right after the music stopped, he said loud and clear bulls**t! =D Awwww, what a birdie! Well it could be that he said something else and we just have dirty imagination.. And I know that the owners have not teached that. But still, it was too funny! =) No matter what he really said. We heard what we heard.
I bought some fabrics and buttons and zippers etc from Pola... And I relly can't sew! ;D But I recently bought a sewing machine (not a good one) and I'm going to learn some basic stuff this summer. =) The reason I bought these was that it was REALLY cheap. The fabrics were 1€/meter. So it really doesn't matter if I destroy all for nothing. And if I get bored etc I can give these to my friends that really sew. Buttons were 10 cents, ribbons 10 cents/meter, zippers 10-20 cents per piece.
Fabrics below I purchased about a month earlier. The lace was 2€/meter, but the other fabrics were 1€/meter. Odo is interested too. :)
This was from monday. It was our final day in Helsinki.. Feelin' kinda crappy. Was soooooo tired. Well took some rose' and Alias in the evenin'. Was even more tired.
So did a bit of shopping too on monday. Like cat food. It was from New Zeeland. Should be really healthy & good, but our cat seems to have a different opinion. Then wandered around some Second hands.
Found these from the city center from a second hand boutique called Kaunis Veera. Wolford body 3€ and H&M skirt 3€:
So we left home on tuesday mornin'. Was sad to leave Helsinki. :/ But I'll be back (yes first time I spelled it "bag", yes please wish I was a bag)! Thanks for H&J for a good care. Had a blast! Love ya! <3 And was sooooo nice to see some other friends too. =) Wish to see everyone again soon!
On tuesday I picked up a package that I ordered from a net shop (http://www.minerva-cosmetics.net/). The lady (the owner) was really nice and delivered the package to the city center. So there were no postal fees. This was possible because we live in a same city, although quite far away from each other. Minerva shop has Greek skin care products from few different brands. And they have a clearance right now. So I ordered much. ;) But it was really cheap! And I was running out of some products.. Explaining, explainin, explaining.. All together was around 53€. Not bad. =)
So I will write some reviews after I have tested these. There are few peels, shampoos, lotions, a body butter, soaps, a makeup remover.. Things like that. Most of these are like mineral oil free, paraben free, propylene free etc... So can't wait to try these! =)
Look at the left middle section of this picture! Can you see a dog on the move. It is Yoda! <3
