Paid collaboration with L’Oréal Paris// Maksettu kaupallinen yhteistyö L’Oréal Paris:in kanssa

I slept like a baby last night but woke up this morning feeling rested for the first time in a while. At 8.30 am I walked towards Stockmann’s rooftop terrace to go through today’s event with L’Oréal Paris. As I have the honor to be the it-girl for the brand, I got to be part of the launch of the seasons newest products. I love this turquoise look Pipsa gave me on stage. Believe it or not, but I’ve actually worn turquoise eyeshadow off -duty this summer. I love a carefree look with freckles and messy brows paired with bright turquoise eyelids. I prefer the eyeshadow to be very uneven and not perfect. Almost tapped onto he eyelid with the fingertips.

Today, I’m editing pictures all day before I pick up the kids a bit earlier than usual. They’ve had a long week already and some difficulties adapting to our everyday routines. As have I.

By the way, speaking of Stockmann’s rooftop terrace, it’s the perfect spot now, when the weather is still warm but the light softer. I want to spend every awake and free moment outdoors, therefore I’m definitely going to come back to the terrace for lunch or coffee with a friend one day soon. So pretty!

My weekend

Uncategorized,13 August 2018

This weekend was the first weekend we’ve had since we came back from our summer holidays. It went by so fast, but we managed squeeze in lots of fun activities. On Friday, we took the kids to Allas sea pool for some afternoon swimming. I’ve never been there before, but loved it. Especially the sauna. On Saturday, we, together with five families from our daycare arranged a crayfish party outdoors (inside a playground) to take advantage of the Dine Under the Sky in Helsinki day. This way of dining works surprisingly well, since dining out with kids at this age can be a hustle.

Yesterday I wanted to get away, so we drove to my mum’s cottage to spend some time in the forest and just chill. I love rainy days and I find it especially nice when there’s thunder and lightning’s. So dramatic and nice.

This morning I kicked off the week by fasting before I visited the doctor for some blood work. I’ve suffered from daily headache for months now, so I’m finally having it checked out. It shouldn’t be anything serious, but I’m glad I finally went. Now I’m just about to take off and film a video for you guys, but first I need to stuff my face with some food and coffee!
