{ Celebrate the Irony }

Hello! I have officially been resurrected from my negative funk that I suffered in my last post hhaha ^^. Anyways, I thought you guys might enjoy a sped up video of my morning routine with some funky music in the background! The product I've used are all listed in the youtube description bar (:
Hope you enjoy this piece of embarrassment!

Hellou! Olen virallisesti noussut kuolleista (viitaten aikaisemman postauksen synkkään tunnelmaan) ^^
Ajattelin, että voisitte nauttia videosta, jossa hoidan aamun 'kauneusrutiinin' nopeutettuna- taustalla siis upeaa musiikkia! Käytetyt tuotteet on listattu youtube description-boksissa (:
Toivottavasti tykkäätte tästä nolouden palasesta!

{ On the Rocks }

Wow. That was the worst week in IB1 so far. Like holy moly am I exhausted. I know it doesn't sound like a lot but since in my school we don't have exam weeks, I had four exams in addition to attending lessons, doing homework, booming deadlines, and all my hobbies. And the worst part is that they all went horribly. HL Math, SL Econ, English Paper 2, and HL Econ were just bad. Its frustrating to know that you are writing really badly. HL Math is the one that saddens me the least because it's very common for people to get 2's and 3's in the first exam and still succeed later.  It is really frustrating to put so many hours into something and then just see terribly wrong. Oh well. Failing first IB exams are acceptable. There there ;3 The fun continues next week. In any case, I'll just leave you with my songs of the week. Perhaps I'll be able to function normally after a long night of sleep!

Wow. Pahin IB1 viikko on ohi. Siis miten voi olla näin turhautunut ja väsynyt? IB'llä ei ole koeviikkoa, joten neljän kokeen lisäksi (joista osa oli peräkkäin -.-) piti käydä koulua, hoitaa läksyt, deadlinet, ja harrastukset. Pahinta tässä on se, että kaikki meni aivan pepulleen. HL matikka, SL economics, englannin paper 2, ja HL economics menivät niiin huonosti. On niin turhauttavaa tietää jo kirjoittaessaan mitä surkeutta sieltä kynästä tulee. HL matikka harmittaa vähiten, sillä on todella yleistä, että saadaan ekasta kokeesta kakkosia ja kolmosia ja silti menestytään hienosti myöhemmin. Silti on niin turhauttavaa tehdä niin kovasti töitä ja käyttää niin paljon tunteja lukemiseen (lähinnä matikkaan, muulle ei oikein jäänyt aikaa) ja sitten nähdä kaiken menevän huonosti. Voi voi. Ekat IB kokeet on ihan hyväksyttävä munata. Hauskuus jatkuu ensi viikolla!
Joka tapaksessa, jätän teidät viikon kappaleiden kanssa. Ehkä minulla on jotain järkevämpää sanottavaa hyvien yöunien jälkeen!

Helloo!
I am currently extremely busy with school so I'm sorry I haven't been posting this week :'(. But I'd like to share with you some alternative ways of keeping up with me! I update my instagram more frequently than anything - so around once a day! You can find me there as 'Marieprepster' :)
So life lately via instagram:

Olen erittäin kiireinen koulun takia, joten anteeksi kun en ole postaillut tällä viikolla :'(
Haluaisin kuitenkin jakaa kanssanne pari muuta tapaa joilla voitte kuulla minusta! Päivitän instagramia melkein joka päivä ja sieltä minut löytää nimellä 'Marieprepster' :)
Elämää viimeaikoina instagramin kautta:

{ Fitching }

Hello!
My Dad got back from Florida tonight and he was so sweet and made a trip to the noisy, dark, and smelly Abercrombie & Fitch for me! I received a lovely lace top, plaid pyjama pants, and a flannel shirt. :)

Isäni palasi tänään Floridasta ja oli matkallaan nähnyt vaivaa ja käynyt pimeässä, meluisassa ja hajuisassa Abercrombie & Fitchissä! Ihastelen nyt ihanaa pitsitoppia, pyjamanhousuja, ja flanellipaitaa. :)

These pyjama pants (I always call them 'sleepy pants'! ^^) are made of very soft flannel and are of course (my favorite) plaid!

Or add a cozy sweater!

Something that is really controversial and rather interesting is the A&F, Hollister, and Gilly Hicks brand name. Many say their clothing is overpriced and their styles are repetitive. Often they are accused of portraying very skinny or emaciated models, and only employing 'beautiful people'.
I find that some of those accusations are true; the people they employ are actually working up to model for the company, so I guess that's okay. It does kind of bother me that A&F is such a thing. I find that they sell good quality and well designed clothing that suits my style. Nearly everything I own from them is super easy to match with each other and ends up looking cute and relaxed, but it is important not to get to sucked in to what they are selling you; essentially a 'lifestyle'. The entire concept is a bit too 'branded' for my taste. Have you ever noticed that Hollister sells replicas of most of the more simple A&F styles at lower prices? Some of the items are overpriced; over 90 euros or pounds for a cotton (OR POLYESTER) dress is too much, but I am willing to pay that amount for a well made, wool/cashmere sweater. Often they're clothing is sized very very small and might make people feel uncomfortable to go two or more sizes higher than usual.
That being said, Istill really enjoy their clothing and will continue to shop there in the future :3
What do you think?

P.s. My favorite new thing on instagram is following 'nalacat' - cutest cat ever!

Happy week lovelies! xx
