Last week I went to Finland for a quick visit, just to relax and heal my shoulder while hanging out with mom. On the way to my home town I stopped in Helsinki and went to visit the Junarose showroom with Mimmi. I have posted about my visit to the London showroom before (see the post here), so I was very interested in seeing what styles they would have at the showroom in Helsinki. The lovely ladies who handle Junarose sales and PR in Finland showed us around and we got to see a lot of upcoming styles (which were indeed different than what I saw in London). They also kindly let us take a few photos, so here’s a little sneak peek to Junarose SS14.
Kävin viime viikolla pikaisella visiitillä Suomessa, tulin vaan rentoutumaan ja olkapäätäni hoivaamaan pariksi päiväksi – ja sehän on parasta äidin hoivissa. Kotimatkalla pysähdyin Helsingissä ja kävin tutustumassa Junarosen showroomiin Mimmin kanssa. Olen postannut aiemmin visiitistäni Lontoon showroomiin (lue postaus englanniksi täällä), ja olin utelias näkemään millaisia tuotteita olisi näytteillä Helsingissä. Junarosen myyntiä ja PR:ää hoitavat Heidi ja Anu näyttivät meille paikkoja, ja nähtiin paljon tulevia Junarose-ihanuuksia (jotka olivat eri tuotteita mitä näin Lontoossa). Saatiin myös lupa ottaa vähän kuvia, joten tässä olisi pieni vilkaisu Junarosen kevääseen.
I love all of these, but THIS JUMPSUIT. Gah, I can’t wait to have it!! // Kaikki nämä ovat mielestäni ihania, mutta en malta odottaa, että saan tämän haalarin hyppysiini!!
Mimmi and I also took our outfit pics after we left the showroom, and she took these with her camera.. I’m definitely convinced that I need the same lens too, these photos turned out great (except for the foggy grayness, haha).

I’m trying to go through my NYC posts slowly but surely, and this time it’s time to talk about Torrid. I already spoke a bit about our shopping trip to Torrid in this post, but this post is about their Fall Preview event that I was lucky to be invited to. The event was hosted by the lovely Jessica Kane, and it was full of bloggers whose blogs I have been following since I found plus-size blogs. Like you know, Torrid isn’t very famous here in the UK, mainly because they don’t have stores in here.. I wish they did though, since they offer the same kind of bold designs that ASOS Curve does, making same kind of stuff for plus-size than we are used to seeing in main ranges.
The Torrid representatives, including their main designer, told us about the pieces and encouraged us to try stuff on. I tried on their new skinny jeggings which were AMAZING, I can’t wait to get my hands on them!
Mouna trying on this heart-print top that has a really interesting back detail. Love it!
Details on denim – I love the lightning print!
GORGEOUS blazers, the rose print also comes in a purple colourway
My favourite knit was this oversized purple top, and the colours of the bras were stunning.
And what did I wear then? Well Torrid of course, since I bought quite a few pieces just 2 days before ;).
Top: 4, Torrid (similarish at ASOS Curve: 1, 2) | Shorts: 26 US, Torrid (similar at ASOS Curve) | Shoes: Minnetonka Moccasins (similar at ASOS) | Bag: Kmart (similar at Fab) | Necklace: Primark (similarish at Accessorize) | Lippy: Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch (UK link, US link) | Sunnies: ages old from Finland

I was happy to be invited to Evans Shape Studio event last week. I had a great time chatting away with my fellow bloggers, and it’s always a pleasure to see the Evans ladies. There was racks of new collection clothes for Evans, and even a new label called Scarlett & Jo. We were happy to try the clothes on and have our photos taken in by a photographer – there was a lot of posing happening, like you can imagine.. it was a room full of bloggers after all ;).
These are a few of my photos, including a hilarious shot of Caroline, Georgina and me ;D! I wore a Live Unlimited top, Scarlett & Jo leggings and Dorothy Perkins Kardashian Kollection heels. All coming this Spring – Scarlett & Jo on 5th February and Live Unlimited on 25th of March – CAN’T WAIT!
After the lovely event I went for dinner with gorgeous ladies Caroline and Isha, which really was a perfect ending for a great day! Before we left Isha snapped these pics of my outfit that evening, thank you lady. I wore my awesome sale buy from ASOS Curve, I LOVE the print on this dress, so beautiful and vibrant. I wanted it to shine, so wore it with black, black and black, with the exception of the metallic plate in this cool belt ;).

Hey my lovelies,
A couple of months ago I was invited to see the Spring/Summer 2013 collection for TOMS footwear and eyewear. I was really excited to go, since my two pairs of TOMS are my comfiest shoes, and I love them! I also love the fact that for every pair of shoes TOMS gives a pair for a child in need, and for every pair of sunglasses they give a person a sight (glasses, doctor’s appointment or a surgery). This is really amazing, and I’m personally happy to pay more for their items since I know that they are doing good deeds.
So much prettiness in the TOMS SS13 collection, isn’t there?!
I fell even more in love with the brand after seeing the beautiful wedges, and the new GORGEOUS ballet flats. The eyewear surprised me completely, the styles are trendy and absolutely amazing – the team kindly offered to send me a pair of my choice, and I had real trouble choosing! I ended up choosing the Maverick, and when I received them a few weeks ago I just HAD TO shoot an outfit featuring them. I ADORE this pair.
Top: 24, George at ASDA (similar with lace sleeves at Simply Be, plain one at Dorothy Perkins) | Skirt: 20 US, Old Navy (sorry, didn’t find links to anything like this, but similar dress at ASOS, metallic skater skirt at ASOS, and lace skater dress at New Look) | Tights: E, We Love Colors | Boots: Primark (similar at Style 369) | Sunglasses*: TOMS
