Gossip, Catalogue & Candy !


Tonight is the night!
When my boyfriend gets home, he will randomly select 
the winner of my 2nd year giveaway!

He has no idea who is following me or how many 
joined the giveaway etc. - all I am going to tell him 
is that first number is 1 and last 107, and ask him to 
choose some random number between those. If he 
refuses to take the honour, I will use the random 
number generator instead haha.
I will send e-mail to the winner & post her name here:

EDIT: The winner is


Some of my evenings from past weeks have went by... by just relaxing. 
I've watched GossipGirl season one DVD and had some candy, yum. 
[ I know, I'll lose my teeth to the tooth fairy bwaah bwaah. :D ]
I've seen the 1st season ages ago, obviously, but missed episodes here and there
so it has been fun to watch the whole show all the way from the beginning. 


Also, I've been thinking about my wardrobe. I do not need anything, 
but obviously I always want something new.. Just small additions.
If all goes well I will get my clothing rack tomorrow [finally ! ]
Then [ I hope ] I will get more organized and clear out all items I don't wear.

But, here's some of my picks from the H&M catalogue [that arrived already 
many many days ago, but I haven't had the chance to show you this post yet]
Haha there's also some samples of Lancome moisturiser. "Multilift", 
since I'm getting soooo old now that I reached 1/4 of a century. ;] Just kidding.
I gave them away though, since I have so many cream jars to be emptied !

Can you believe that I bought that white romper 
last year from fleamarket, was it 3 euros or such..
Now it has made a comeback to the stores [ for 19,95 eur ]

Cute colourful items.. I lust for more shorts !
Oh did you see *this post* , I bought that mint green hat - ♥ it ! 
For once, something I have marked down / pinned or saved
to inspiration files and actually BOUGHT! Progress.
I should try this more often with my Fashiolista..
I don't think I own anything I have lusted after there, hehe :D

Don't you think it would be cheaper and enviromentally friendly
  to take away sleeves of some old denim shirt [ go thrifting ! ] 
than buying completely new one? This one looks great, though.
 Colour of the denim is just perfectly light.
Oh and by adding some lace to back of old  tops (take away the straps)
you'll have fully fashionable ones. I need to but these to "remember to DIY"-pile in my head ! 
Or Pinterest.

Wouldn't it be cozy to lay your head down, over that cute hedgehog..
small cat towels and canvas shoe bag
pillowcases. sry bad quality.

 I'd love to get my hands on anything mint right now.
[Mint hot chocolate .. Oooh yum..]
And I know half of the [ blogging ] world does too !

Follow Indie by Heart.


  1. Wow, looks like the H&M in your part of the world has better items than our H&M here! I love this post!


  2. Cute blog you have here!!! I am now following you!!! Hope u follow back!

  3. Great post. I love the polka dot playsuit.

  4. Hi sweety, this was such great insight into your weekend. Its always fun watching old episodes of GG. Also loving mint everything! Great style inspiration.

  5. great photos!

    I recently did a review on a pretty Lulu’s dress and would love it if you can stop by and check it out, thanks so much!

  6. Love the DIY ideas :) Have fun watching GG episodes haha.


  7. I'm obsessed over mint anything too.. haven't found much things though.. and I thought Gossip Girl's first season is the only one worth watching..after that, everything gets ridiculous...
    hope you get something cool on H&M

  8. Aw man, I know! Mint is THE color of the season! Mmmmmm, mint hot chocolate...lol
    Ahh, I totally relate to that feeling too. haha, I don't need anything but I always want something to add to my closet x0 Its so hard...haha, my wallet hates me.

  9. Looooove this post, Satu! You make life seem so fun. :) I absolutely adore Gossip Girl - the characters are all so unique and iconic ... not to mention the absolute eye candy that is their wardrobes! Oh my gosh, i would watch the episodes repeatedly just to drool over all the gorgeous dresses that they always seem to wear with such ease.

    Ahhh, and you always write the most beautiful comments! Hehe, so glad you like my post but you have me absolutely yearning for an H&M to come to Australia - we are seriously so isolated here. :(

    Haha, and is index so funny that our seasons are completely polarised though I must say, I have a feeling our winter is probably not much colder to your summer! In winter here on the Gold Coast, it certainly isn't unusual for people to be clad in sandals and shorts on an average day hehe. Definitely no place for woolly thick jackets where I live!

    WOW, I wrote an essay. Haha. We always tend to do that though, don't we? ;)

    Have a brilliant day, sweetheart! <3

  10. awesome finds! you have some great ideas, i can't wait to see if you make those creative tops! and i kindaaa want all of those colored shorts.

  11. everything about this post is fantastic!!! I love your blog so much!! :) Following :D

  12. I love Gossip Girl! I recently watched all of the seasons (Last year) and I am all caught up now :)

    Anddd I always feel like I need new things in my closet too, yet maybe its because I have too much I can't really figure out what i have, haha.

    I love everything you chose from H&M, such a lovely store.

  13. yeah, mint definitely is everywhere! I almost got myself mint pants but the zipper was broken and I gave them up and bought a light mint top instead. I'll show it someday :P
    anyway, I love that pillow with the cute hedgehog, it's beyond adorable!
    and your H&M catalogue reminded me I'll have the chance to visit H&M in the end of the next month, yay! :D

  14. I am so in love with that leopard romper (or is it a dress??) and I'm also the same way with Gossip Girl.. even if I've seen the season already, it just never seems to get old! xo


  15. Onpa sinulla suloisen näköinen blogi! :)

    Kivoja valintoja olet tehnyt H&M:n katalogista. Sanon aina, että on hauska nähdä miten omanlaisia/erilaisia valintoja kaikki bloggarit sieltä tekevät.

  16. Great finds from the H&M catalogue! can't wait until we have that store here!

    Thanks for the link to the blog of this "belle femme".

    First I had to ask the google translator about the language which was used ;-). You allways write in English, so I haven't got any problems.
