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!

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!!

the gatsby evening

Last Thursday I finally got to see the movie I’d waited for a year, The Great Gatsby. I started the evening at the Hotel Kämp with some drinks at the Royal Afterwork and headed to Tennispalatsi to the premiere with some goodlooking according-to-the-theme-dressed crowd. I chose to modernize the dresscode with my white delicate top and black frilly skirt and some dangling bling in my ears.
The movie was very much of a Luhrmann love story and it was easy to get lost in his world. The soundtrack is amazing, rap is totally my cup of tea, and it gives such an interesting contrast to the whole movie.

1. Karina Kivilahti looked absolutely stunning in her Temperley dress.
2. Karina & Kaarina Kivilahti and Mert Otsamo playing with the night’s theme.
3. Tiia Vanhatapio was totally in her element.
4. Teemu Leino et moi looking very prestigious and royal.
5. I had forgotten the film was in 3D! Siru Palmroos and me goofing around before the movie started.
6. Elle Finland’s lovely Mirva Saukkola was one of the hostesses of the evening.
7. + 8. The afterparty was at Teatteri. Good times, lots of it!

I got to attend an event hosted by Avon a couple of weeks back. Champagne was on the flow and macaroons to feast on and then there was some good girlie talk.

Met the beautiful Guoda Chranovskyte-Giedraite who’s in change of Avon’s PR & Advertisement for Baltics & Finland.

The coolest ever stylist Minttu Vesala was in the house as well. Cin cin, baby!

Macaroons and minibebes, how can one resist those goodies!?

Avon’s make up was familiar to me from some shoots and fashion shows, but was totally unaware of their skincare line and parfumes which we got to test. My favorite was the daycream.

The designer Tiia Vanhatapio came with her super cute wiener dog, Hemmo, who of course made us all fall totally in love with him.

Thank you so much for a lovely afternoon Avon, it was really nice to get to know your brand better!
