Lets take a moment to appreciate the year 2012. What was my life like this year?
~Random pics of me~
Me & my godson in his bday party (he turned four) in October.
In 2012 the ice hockey world championships were held in Finland, Helsinki. I got to work at the VIP event as a face painter (lol I was so bad at that). The VIP place was next to the changing rooms, so I got to see the Lions (Finnish hockey team) twice! I also met other Finnish players, such as Tuomo Ruutu, Nummelin and Ville Peltonen in the VIP area. That was SO amazing, I even started to cry when the lions walked past us the first time (I know so unprofessional)... I also painter Samu Haber's face if someone knows that guy from Sunrise Avenue. Got to see one of Finland's matches live too! So I consider those few weeks super memorable! Propably one of the best weeks in my entire life!
Finland- Slovakia (result was 1-0 )
My life was full of broken electronic devices in 2012:
- at least 5 headphones were destroyed
- one cell phone was broken (Samsung Galaxy s3) by the second week of owning it
- My laptop ate my headphones so I can't hear anything from it anymore.
I trevelled to Dubai (which is my fave place on earth) and Greece (and Sweden but that doesn't count).
I've seen Burj Khalifa live many times, but it still continues to impress me.
Me in Rhodes in September

Me & Coco
I worked in a spa, as a manicurist for Butter London and as a customer service/event worker wherever and whenever I was needed.
In school we had a 10 -month working period, so I did all the stuff a normal beauty therapist does: facials, manicures, pedicures, waxing, massages etc. Six hours a day for five days a week and 9 Saturdays of the year! Now let me tell you that may sound light but it ain't! Taking care of other people can be also mentally quite hard: some clients open up to us and you kind of have to listen to them and support them. Some of the clients stories were amazing to listen to though!
Me & my friend Satu at school
Rosa, me and Satu working in Vierumäki.
I have made a lot of new friends! I love all of my friends so much, and it has been wonderful to meet new amazing people I hope to keep in my life for a long long time!!

I turned 20. I'm so old.
So, what am I expecting of the year 2013?
I hope it'll be as good (or even better than) 2012! At least I'm gonna try my best to make it superb!
Goals to complete for next year:
- Graduate as a CIDESCO, SKY -cosmetologist
- Move out to live on my own
- Go to archery with my bff
- Get into Laurea or get a job if I don't get in there.
- Make one of my biggest dreams come true: travel to NYC and attend IMATS
- Travel to Dubai
- Be happy
- Be as healthy as I possibly can
I'm propably still going to do a new years tag or something here in my blog, I'm also going to film my favourite products of 2012 in English and empties in Finnish.
