Shoes Acne Track
What I've been up to in the past days: polished my shoes and watched the documentary Page One: Inside the New York Times about the transformation of media and the newspapers role in it.
I know one thing the blogs can't replace newspapers in: pleasantly hued paper surfaces like the Financial Times to cover the floor when I'm applying shoe polish.
After reading it from page to page with large amounts of jasmine flavored green tea in the afternoon sun.
Enjoy your weekend!

I had my interview for Central Saint Martins last Tuesday. Fast forward one Jeremy Deller/David Shrigley exhibition, Hinoki Scent Candle from Muji, Laura's air mattress, a Shoreditch bar with Ladyhawke sitting in the next table, Paolo Roversi gallery show, reduced price M&S food, flight to home and five hours of sleep later I read an email that says I got in.
London and BA Fashion Communication with Promotion here I come!
First of all, I would like to thank the Danish, because joking about your weirdly sounding language totally broke the ice in the interview.
Then I would thank myself because I'm awesome and I have worked so hard for this. I realized I've been working a year nonstop...even the Christmas was stressful because I had to think about the application. New Years eve? Doing inventory at work. Easter? What Easter? What did I do last summer, yeah I worked from nine to five. And I'm not complaining, it was all worth it and things are definitely not going to slow down from now on.
Last but not least, all my dear friends and you nice readers. Thanks, here's a internet high-five, you're all great!
Oscar speech over, on to the next...

The show ends, vampire themed entertainment skyrockets. Coincidence? I don't think so.
Summer to do list: Dark Angel, Charmed, X-Files and Xena.
Varpu shot with Mamiya RB67.

Lauri on film and Varpu on digital
Sometimes when things are falling apart, I remind myself that if I can sing the musical masterpiece of the song Rain Over Me by Pitbull and Marc Anthony sober with my awful singing voice to complete strangers and it's on tape, there's nothing to lose.
I mean, London and CSM interview next week, that's easy...

Leather pouch Tosca Blu, jacket Laitinen, neon leather belt second hand and tee Acne.
The leather pouch is the same as in the last post. The colour is beautiful, I have a crush on this lavender stuff, since I also own a fluffy angora cardigan in the same hue. I'm also obsessed with my neon belt, paired with preppy chinos.
My favorite song of the moment is Vowels = Space and Time by Grimes. Good tune!
Even though it's April and there is a lot ahead, I'm looking forward to SUMMER.
I got a taste on it on Wednesday evening.
Cruising around in Mercedes Benz to an exhibition and downing sparkling wine.
With friends you haven't seen for a while.
Everything waits for us around the corner.

Materia, if you really have the ability to make people happy for a short while, I will give you a chance. Okay? Okay.
Lying around in my corners, go ahead and make yourself useful for once!

I shot these with Mamiya RB67 last year on expired film with high contrast, vivid colour quality.
I wanted to try something different. Something new. It's quite harmful to push around the same ideas around for too long.
But when I try something new and different I usually refuse it as too weird, cliched or banal. Not good enough. And I toss it.
Then one year later I notice that it's perfectly fine.
And I dig out the files, the sweatshirts and the shoes.
And then I notice it's Monday and I've officially survived through past week but the shirt I was trying to iron is awfully wrinkly...
