I'm not dressing up for Halloween, not going to any parties, in fact not doing anything special. But one's got to have a pumpkin! I've never made anything of pumpkin, except carved it. Hopefully I'll find a nice recipe for a pumpkin pie or soup. I don't even know if I like pumpkin, I can't remember having it.. But one's got to have a pumpkin.

Leather jacket - My auntie's old
Dress - Primark
Scarf & Shoes - Seppälä

Loving our faces here:')

 My sister's visiting with her Austrian friend, and yesterday we did some sightseeing. I should've been on my French lesson but after sitting about 15 minutes in class I asked the teacher if I could leave earlier to go on a "family experience" (that's what my sister calls everything we do together, or a sister experience if it's the two of us, haha!). My French teacher has taught my sister as well so she just said "Of course, tell Aino I said hi to her!" Every teacher should be like that! :)


These are from Kukkolankoski. It's ~hour's drive from us and the river, Torniojoki, is the largest river in Europe that runs free. That's about as exciting as the tourist attractions get around here, must admit it's pretty though. Even on a gray day, like it was yesterday.

mirror, mirror on the wall...

Blouse - Handmade by my auntie
Skirt - Primark

...I'm my mother after all. Think that's so true. Surely everyone wants to be different from their mother and think they won't be like them. Both in looks and personality. However, often it goes the other way, and we resemble our mothers. But it's not that bad, at least I'd think so. I've always heard that I'm like a mini mama. Especially when I was 10 I looked exactly like my 10-year-old mother, if you had seen just photos you would've thought we were twins!

Had a nice (ish) day. I had a kantele performance, and despite the fact I had practiced only two days before it, it went alright. Later I had my kantele lesson (which is every Wednesday, I go to a local musical college, beside school:>) and I've played so much that my fingers are full of blisters. (Slight exaggeration there..)

Hope you had a splendid Wednesday♥!
