rolling with my homies #8

Time for part #8 on my series!! Woop!!

This time the stage belongs to a very chic friend of mine…

Here’s three hints, have a guess who she might be!

1. She’s a true fashionista and a blogger.

2. Agent Pekka is where she works at as an agent and producer plus she occasionally contributes at Trendi Magazine.

3. She’s one of the coolest moms I know and an overall lover of good taste.

Final guesses in…. Now!!

Yep, you got it. She’s PETRA KOIVISTO!!


Here she goes with my questions:

What’s on my ipod on repeat?
-This is a boring answer to start with but Happy by Pharrell, STILL!

-Just do it (and do it well)!

Guilty pleasure:
-Swedish Hollywood housewives and Vestiaire collective or eBay in the late hours after a bit of prosecco…

The randomest thing in my bag:
-A pacifier?

Never leave the crib…
-iPhone, keys & looking into mirror

I’m currently being inspired by…
-play (with patterns, with colors, with materials & with my daugther)

Fave website:
-Vestiaire collective, eBay and tumblr-jungle and my own blog of course, ha!

Busy doing….
-Busy making magic happen!

rolling with my homies #7

First “Rolling with my Homies” of the year, yihaa!!

This time I put my lovelysweettalented make up artist friend Senay Coco to the hot seat.

I met her at Flow-festival last summer and fastforward a couple of months and ta-daa we were working together on set for Elastinen‘s music video “Uus“. She’s worked with a lot of Finnish artists and talents and has constantly some new cool projects coming out. My friendly advice would be for you guys to keep an eye on her!

Let’s hear it for Senay!!


What’s on my ipod on repeat? MSMR – Secondhand Rapture

Motto: Less is more, more is BETTER

Guilty pleasure:
Home all alone with a big piece of chocolate cake and a good tv-serie.

The randomest thing in my bag: Baby’s dummy and baby´s socks.

Never leave the crib…
without wine, food, blanket & candels.

I’m currently being inspired by… Chanel and Marc Jacobs

rolling with my homies #5

This time on “Rolling with my Homies” I wanted to have the little Q&A with my dear friend Vilma P.. As you know from reading my blog, we are model&blogger colleagues, she’s a supertalented photographer and she has energy like no other to research &
plan stuff and make beautiful things happen. She’s also a part of the Finnish Cosmopolitan’s MyCosmo dreamteam and I’m super proud of her.
Couple of weeks ago we both got booked for Kauppalehti Optio’s Gala (Instagram followers, old news for you, hihi) and while waiting for our catwalk time I got to catch up after the summer with this lovely lady and ask her my signature questions for you!!


What’s on my iPod on repeat?
Biffy Clyro. There is not only one song that I listen to, I love them all.

Hmm.. At the moment there is on my fridge door a quote of Oscar Wilde: “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken”. My motto is always the one that inspires me the most at that time.

Guilty pleasure?
I buy new notebooks to write down all my ideas and to do lists etc. almost every week. I have so many beautiful booklets, that most of them are half empty. Not so ecological. And raw chocolate, of course…

The randomest thing in my bag…
There are quite many of these… My friends are actually laughing at me because of this. I carry everything on earth with me: toothbrush, blister bandages, school books, laptop and iPad and camera, healthy snacks, water bottle, hairbrush and hairspray, some makeup, iPhone charger, pens and notebooks etc. I have always a large bag with me. Actually two.

Never leave the crib…

I’m currently being inspired by…
Berlin where I just visited, and especially Helmut Newton whose exhibition I went to see. In addition raw baking, books and change of season..

Fave website?
Pinterest and bloglovin.

Busy doing….
Everything! I currently have a test week in University where I´m studying sociology and theoretical philosophy. Same time I try to blog for MyCosmo, do my other jobs, and have time for my hobbies like photography and sports. I tend to make myself busy…

rolling with my homies #4

Time for Rolling with my Homies #4!
This time it’s all about this beautiful young lady and a collegue of mine; model Anu Koski who’s done an impressive resumé both in Finland and abroad. At this very moment she’s taking over Berlin Fashion Week!



What’s on my ipod on repeat?
* Depeche Mode – Personal Jesus (Stargate mix)

* Let’s make things happen !

Guilty pleasure
* Uh, this is so obvious but I have to say shopping clothes! Who
doesn’t love the feeling when you step outside from the shop and
you’re holding a shopping bag in your hand… something new to wear !
No – seriously I do it too much and always say to myself *Okay this is
last thing I’m buying… no more shopping a while now… as if..”. But
on the other hand when there’s a chance to buy so unique clothes from
abroads like from Tokyo, why not to use the opportunity?

The randomest thing in my bag
* Allergy medicine, like nose spray, eye drops and pills. After my
first trip to Tokyo 2,5 years ago I got really bad allergic reaction
(eyes got super swollen, also half of the face) and ever since I’ve
always had these traveling with me in my bag. Can’t take the risk if
there’s a shooting coming up and my face gets swollen.

Never leave the crib…
* Iphone, wallet, keys and without wearing a watch.

I’m currently being inspired by…
* All the colorful&playful spring/summer clothes in stores, but
usually it always ends up for me to buy something black.

Fave website
* and, both of them are good resourch
to stay updated in this business considering whose who at the moment,
campaigns&editorials etc.

Busy doing….
* Spring plans, about where to travel next… Otherwise I can’t really
do other plans, never know when I have to travel next somewhere or if
there’s a last-minute direct booking for shootings etc.

rolling with my homies #3

Time for Rolling with my Homies part trois!

This time it’s all about my friend Irene Taen, fashion stylist and a designer, based in London. We’ve worked a lot together and this lady has a killer style head to toe.
She has her own fashion label TTYA, Taller Than Your Average for ladies who are over 180 cm tall. The collection is full of beautiful, practical, feminine pieces and I’m head over heels in love with this piece!
Selfridges, one of my favorite department stores in London, just took TTYA to their instore selection and that in my books is HUGE! So proud of you, Irene, so so proud of you!!!



On my iPod on repeat:
Really into my 90′s rnb at the moment, my friend dj Martelo has some amazing mixes on his sound cloud.

WAYWARD WIZARD call all my mates wizards

Guilty pleasure:

2 iphones

Never leave the crib…

All the tall ladies I’m meeting at the moment
