I am soo excited because in 5 days I will be on my way to Rio de Janeiro (aka my homeee *.*)!!! I don´t know if people know this but in Brazil clothes are quite expensive. What happens is that we have lot of boutiques but we don´t have so many department stores. Recently it opened ONE forever 21 in Rio and all the girls went crazy haahah! We don´t have H&M yet :(, when I am in Brazil and I want to buy clothes I go to Zara because is one of the most “affordable”. Is really sad that clothes are so expensive in Brazil, that´s why before going there I do a little shopping over here hehe.

As I showed in one previous post, Rio de Janeiro style is very colourful and warm, so I choose some fun items:

1. Shirt from Bikbok – great to use with a jeans short and some havaianas, perfect to walk around during the day.

2. Shorts from Gina tricot – They are soo comfortable! Sometimes jeans shorts get a bit uncomfortable, so I wanted something to subistitute that. Plus the print is similar to the one used in the Copacabana beach sidewalk *.*.

3. Bikini from H&M – A bikini is a MUST have if you go to Rio. I didnt have any! Let´s face it, there is no place to use bikini in Finland. Maybe in the sauna but the tradition is to go naked!! Yeppp, Finns have no problem to be all naked, I had a bit of a culture shock ahha. No, in Brazil we do not go naked to the beach :D, actually womans don´t even do the “topless” thing.

4 Shirt from H&M – Always good to have a simple white shirt so you can play with the accessories. This one is actually a cropped top.

I hope I can show little bit of Brazil to you girls when I am there! What about more Rio de Janeiro street style? If you are curious about something in Rio let me know! I want to post as much as possible when I am there! 🙂

Some people from Brazil ask me “Is there summer/spring in Finland or is there snow during the whole year?”. I always laugh at that question!! Yes, Finland can be very cold but there is also warm summer! It is true that probably 9 months of the year is like super cold ahahah BUT the other 3 months can be quite warm.In fact, Finland has one of the most beautiful spring/summer that I have seem! In the spring you can see everyday little by little all the flowers and nature coming back to life! Kind of sucks that in the rest of Europe it is already much warmer,but there isnt much that we can do besides wait and enjoy the little sun we get during some days. Soon warmer days will come *.*, i can feel it! It is also exciting that now a days it starts to get dark around 21:00h! In the summer we literally have endless days since the sun barely goes down!

How is the weather in your country at the moment?! Summer feelings already?

Piercing – Septum

I have been thinking about this piercing since the fall, but well, I was just thinking. I was kind of scared of my parents and family friends reaction to this one. A septum piercing is not so conventional as the other ones, even though nowadays is becoming more and more popular.

Here in Finland people are much more open about piercings and tattoos than in Brazil.For example, in Brazil when it comes to a job, sometimes they do not accept piercings, or tattoos that show.Here in Finland everybody is much more relaxed, no one cares if you have a tattoo or piercing in the middle of your face as long as you do your job.

Anyway, last thursday I got the courage and I was like “today is the day! Today or never!!”.

I went to Putka tattoo studio here in Tampere. I walked inside the shop scared as fuck, and this really good piercing professional called Anni came to talk to me. I had some questions about the septum piercing, for example:

HOW MUCH DOES IT HURT?!

CAN I PUT RIGHT AWAY A SMALL RING ? ( I never wanted a horseshoe, I always wanted the really small ring)

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKES TO HEAL?

So she explained to me:

– Yeah it hurts but is going to be really fast!

-No we can not put a small ring, because it gets bit swollen and the small ring is going to pressure it

So she explained to me:

– Yeah it hurts but is going to be really fast!

-No we can not put a small ring, because it gets bit swollen and the small ring is going to pressure it and is gonna be uncomfortable. But after it heals up, you can change to whatever you wanna. After it heals up it doesn´t hurt at all to change it.

– To heal completly it takes around 2 months, but it can be sore for around 2 weeks.

After all my answers were clear, I waited one hour so they could clean the jewellery. After so much waiting, time for ACTION.

I sat down on the chair I looked to my side and I see this MASSIVE metal needle, I told her OMG IS THAT THE NEEDLE?!? IT ISN´T THAT WHITE SMALLER ONE??”  then she said it had to be this type for septum piercing. I got even more nervous of course hahha. Step my step bellow the photo.

3 – Moment of truth! After finding the right spot, she put the needle. Is REALLY FAST! Seriously it hurted much less then what I thought! I was like ” Thats it?? Is in?!”.

4 – Lovely photo of me with the needle. I know my face looks stupid, but I guess I have a relieved face ahhaha at this photo.

5 – She taked the needle off, and slides the piercing on the hole. Also super fast did not hurt at all. It bleeds a little after, that is why I had to clean it with a paper.

6 – All doneeeeeeeeeee, still in shock but happy!!

If you are thinking about getting one too, feel free to ask me questions about it!
