uniikki feat ike / naiseni mun

Worked with the rap artist Uniikki a couple of weeks back for his new single “Naiseni mun”. Ike (from Voice of Finland) is feating in the song and it was such a fun day working with these two guys!
The first Rähinä Collabo line named RHN REX by Tiia Vanhatapio & Miika Saksi is launched on the video so you can get a sneek peak of what goodies are coming to Rähinä Shop early next year (I’m gonna get my hands on the mesh shorts and the beanie fo sho).


The boys as fashion designers working on some new designs at their studio waiting for models to arrive so they can cast their show.
Uniikki is wearing Alexander Wang, Versace, Petteri Hemmilä, Triwa and Vans.
Ike is sporting Wood Wood, Selected Homme, Diesel, Efva Attling.


A buddy pic with Uniikki!


Ike singing in Prada, Diesel and Armani at the backstage, smoooooth!

my week

Hey lovelies, sorry for staying low here on the blog side, but I’ve had a crazy busy and awesome week!


We celebrated my friend Jekku’s birthday first in a classy way with some champagne…. (Hope you noticed our H&M cotton candy twin jackets, hihi)…


…and then in some rock’n’roll way!! We went to see Limp Bizkit, #rollinrollinrollinrollin!!


Was so much fun to see my girls after such a long time!


I also did my first ever radio interview at NRJ with Tuija Pehkonen who gave me a huge hug! We talked about beauty and hair trends for the party season among other things.


On Thursday I worked with rapper Uniikki and styled his new music video for the single “Naiseni mun”, good stuff coming, let me tell ya!!


Goofing around the music video set with the Vanhatapio Saksi designer duo! Nothing beats a group selfie!


My new editorial for Me Naiset got out!!!!
Photographed by Jouni Harala, styled by Nina Nuorivaara, make up and hair by Reija Partanen.


Got some time to relax and rediscovered my favorite drink, banana flavored coconut water.

It’s been a good, good week! Hope you guys have had a good time as well!!

rhn rex

There’s a new collaboration in town!! Vanhatapio x Saksi are designing a clothes line for Rähinä Records. The line is called RHN REX and come January 2014 you can get your own pieces from Rähinä Record’s online store.
I’m sure the line will be nothing less than awesomeness, so happy January is just round the corner!!

I must say djing is a lot of fun. You get to jam to really good music (hihi, obviously), hang out with the bestest crowd and have heaps of fun.
That is what basically happened last Friday when I got to dj as a surprise act with Miika Saksi and Kaapo Kamu at Jalla Jalla.


Selfie with Kaaps.


Cords and shoes.


As we would say in Finnish “säätöö” happened in this picture. Or on another point of view; we tore the place down, yay!!


Selfie with my beloved Miiks.


These guys came to say hi!


Serious business!!

I rocked the gig in my H&M Paris Show Collection faux fur, purple Mango dress and in my pink Adidas sneaks.

For those interested in the Paris Show Collection, go check your nearest H&M out. A little birdie just told me the items are on sale!!

the flow 2013

The past weekend was so much F.U.N!! My favorite summer festival, Flow, celebrated it’s 10th year. Flow has been part of my summer since 2007 and it has gotten better and better every year.
I was over the moon to see Alicia Keys live, she’s such a beauty and so talented. Public Enemy’s gig was great, jumped up and down the whole time. Met so many friends, loved the athmosphere, danced to great tunes at the magnificent Carrera lounge and now I’m slightly astonished it’s over…
I’m sharing here two snaps from my sister Shadi and my friend Kaapo Kamu since I somehow wasn’t really active at snapping some pics (too busy partying, that’s why, hihihi).
