We All Go a Little Mad Sometimes

I love horror movies. People keep asking me why. "Why would you watch something scary, why would you want to be scared?" they wonder. I don't think I've ever given anyone a proper answer.
      I've always been fascinated by scary things. My mom never actually denied horror movies from me, but as a child I didn't get my hands on any horror flicks so I didn't have a chance to watch them. So I read stories instead. I borrowed all the kids' horror books several times from the local library and I read them again and again. 

The Usborne Book of the Haunted World by Caroline Young used to be one of my favorite books.

Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids used to be my favorite television show. It's actually quite hilarious!

I wasn't safe from horror movies for long since I have an older brother who would always show me the scariest scenes from the horror movies he was watching. I remember I was never scared, I just laughed. Gosh, that makes me sound so disturbed. 
      By the time I reached the age of ten I had read pretty much all the books from series like Goosebumps and The Nightmare Room. One of the very first horror movies I saw from the beginning to the end was The Grudge. I was about ten years old when I saw it and, I gotta say, even today that's the movie I'm afraid of the most. The Grudge movies aren't very good movies in general, but at least the first two scared the crap out of me. Maybe it's because I first saw them when I was so young or maybe it's because I instinctively draw back from white ghostly women with long black hair and a nightgown, who knows. However I'm traumatized for life by Mrs. Kayako. 

      Surely you're waiting for my answer to the question already. I am going to answer, but I just wanted to tell you that my love for horror is not a recent thing. It's more like I was born this way, baby. Actually the truth is that I don't even know myself for sure why I like horror so much. I've been thinking about the reason and I have a couple theories. 

1. The adrenaline. 
Even though I'm not too shaken by horror movies, I'm still a little bit...on the alert. (Can I say that, is that correct?) I notice that while watching horror movies, and a few hours after, I'm much more sensitive to movements and sounds. I feel like I can see every little flake of dust and hear even the most silent noises. It's a very nice feeling. 

2. Interest in movies.
I like movies in general, not just horror movies. However horror is my favorite genre and I figured it's because it's the most difficult one. At least I think it's the most difficult one. I've seen a lot of horror movies, but only a few were actually good. Why? Because it's so damn hard to create a movie that scares the crap out of people, but still holds an interesting and clever plot. Oh so often horror movies only have the other or, sadly even more often, neither. It's like a hunt for the king of horror movies. The feeling of discovering a scary horror movie with a brilliant plot it amazing.

3. Facing your fears.
"Fight your fears and you'll be in battle forever. Face your fears and you'll be free forever." You can never win your fears, they will always be there. Although you can learn to live with your fears and it's easier if you face them first. I'm not so fond of this theory, because I don't think it applies on me. At least I've never thought "well, I'm afraid of dolls, let's watch a horror movie about dolls" just to accept my fear. 

What kind of movies you like to watch? Why do you think you prefer that genre? Let me know!
Talk to you soon!

So now it is all behind me and I feel super happy but still have this empty feeling inside. I graduated last saturday. It was one of the most important moments of my life and the whole day was just perfect!! For me this journy has been very up and down but I did it and that´s most important. I remember the time when I had my firts exame week and it was so hard and different that I cryed and wanted to walk away. But hell did I not! ;) Here are some pictures of that day.

And yes ofcourse my dress is all made by me! I did the print by my self and designed the dress and made it!

Be Proud of Yourself

When you are drawing, someone else is always drawing a better picture. When you are wearing your favorite shirt, someone else always looks better in the same shirt. When you say something hilarious, someone else always tells a better joke.
People keep comparing themselves to others all the time and many do it even without noticing. We are raised to believe that we have to be the best of all. When we are little kids, our parents tell us how we are the most beautiful children in the world and no one is more beautiful. When we grow up and start school, we spend years and years being compared to others by teachers and other students. I remember how we used to spend time having sleepovers and tell which one of us had the most beautiful hair, the most gorgeous eyes and even whose home was the prettiest. So it's not really our fault that we compare ourselves to everyone else.
However, this should stop. In surprisingly many cases people should just be selfish and be proud of themselves. Be happy with themselves and what they've reached. If someone close to you has succeeded, forget being selfish and be happy for them and make them feel good for what they've done. Remember how good it feels, when people are proud of you and give someone else that feeling.
Don't let anyone make you feel less about your success. There will always be someone who's envious and wants to talk you down and doing so, make themselves feel somewhat better. I know I've had this kinds of people in my life and sometimes I still do. When you tell about your success to these people, they will start talking about how they or someone they know has done the same thing long before and better than you. Just rise above it and keep being proud of yourself (don't have too much pride though, it's not pretty).
Like I said in the beginning  of this post, there will always be someone who you think is better than you. Don't let it distract you, because hey, maybe there is someone who has done the same thing better. However your own success is exactly that: your success. You shouldn't compare it to anything or anyone else, but to the person you used to be. There's this quote that goes "the only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday".
With these thoughts I will leave you with my current favorite song for the summer

talk to you soon and don't burn yourself in the sun!

Treat your body as a temple

Thus at the beginning of the summer when we throw a large layers of clothes off and expose the surface to reveal more , we want to look as good and prosperous. For some time, a new trend has formed in good condition in women and men . no longer being this is not admirable , but beautiful and shapely curves and muscles. As summer starts is therefore a good start a couple of new beauty tips, to make the skin glow even in the hotest summer days and feel the body being healthy and happy.

Treat your body as if it were the world's most valuable temple ! Because you have to live your whole life in that body, so it is best that you enjoy it. The summer heat and the heat cause swelling that interferes with us women ( I can tell you from personal experience that I suffer from swelling of the case). It is therefore important to do some exercise every day. It does not have to be any sweat workout or running. The important thing is that you make every day a half hour to an hour something you enjoy.

Be sure to drink as much water . You've probably heard this a million times as I have , but I belive that this will work ! Drink the water ! When you drink water, the swelling goes down and you will feel better . You will not suffer dehydration and your skin will feel much better, because more than 70 percent of our body is water.

Be sure to moisturize your skin on a daily basis . The heat and sweat will dry out the skin and thus the skin's moisture is important. Try something new body lotion with a scent of summer fruit . Remember sunscreen . Especially moisturizing the face is important ! As researched is that the sun ages the skin and causes wrinkles on the face, so keeping it in a good shape is important. In fact, every day I maintain my face closely following the various rituals , especially since my own mother was a beautician I have received a number of tips from her .

1 in the morning wipe your face with toner or water
2 grrease your face , before any cosmetic products with moisturizing with facecream that includes UV protection, especially at summer time
3 in the evening before going to bed, make sure that you have cleaned all the cosmetics (make-up , etc.) in your face !
4 grease the face a little bit before going to bed.

Try something new this summer . Colorful lips and golden eyes . This summer, no one will stop you.

You should feel exotic this summer!

Some of this summers must have things

It's Summer and Time for Wandering

The sudden heat of summer has drained all the energy out of me so I won't be writing a very long and meaningful post. I just wanted to tell you what's up and what I've been doing lately.
I'm sure you're already fed up with this subject, but I just have to mention it: graduation is less than two weeks away! 31st of May I will graduate from Finnish high school/senior high school/upper secondary school, whatever you wanna call it.

Friday the 16th was a national lipstick day to support women who struggle with heart- and lung diseases. So last Friday I wore red lipstick and threw on my spiky leather jacket. I love wearing my favorite pieces of clothing, because they make me feel so confident!

I know, the picture is very bad, I apologize. Anyways, on Saturday I was shopping with my lovely sister and I bought my graduation dress and shoes! I don't really wear dresses and I am really picky when it comes to buying one. We spent about three hours searching for a dress for me and finally we found one. I saw this dress behind a store's window and I knew I had to try it on. The second I wore it I knew it was the dress I wanted. It's in my favorite color and that is always a plus.

I don't know if I've told you this before, but I love horses and I've been riding since I was eight years old. Nowadays I go riding about once or twice a week on this adorable horse!

I will be doing my friend's makeup for graduation and we tried it out today to see how much time it'll take. This is what the makeup looks like. Look at all that sparkle! Lovely, right?

And lastly my friend wanted to buy a few shirts for summer so I went with her to the clothing store. Whenever there's a large mirror, take a selfie!

It's monday again

Another week is behind us and mondsay is finally here. Now I can officially say that my graduation party is on the next week. It is weird of thinking that when I was in school I couldn´t wait for the time that i could just sit around and mind my own business.. but now I want to go back to school, because i dont know what to do with my too much freetime. Anyway as we all now, we have so much to do and plan before the party and at the same time i am very exited and worried.

So this was a special week for me because it was MotoGP time! Maybe some of you already know that MotoGP is a huge part of my life. And since i started watching it when i was 13-14 years old I have missed only 5ish races. I plan my week and weekends for the timetable of MotoGP.

So this year has been very exceptional. I was really happy and amazed how in Moto3 our leading worldchampion in the points Miller, who won the race, It was incredible! or real. And what I was more happy was that his team is finnish!!! Go Finland.

In MotoGP it has been very one man of a show for Marquez. It has been amazing to win all of the 5 races, but please let someone else to win. No, don´t let but please someone else win.
For the past years of my MotoGP experience I have had my favorites and those are still my goldenboys, but ofcourse I get more pilots that I follow in the races.

But that I will tell you some other time. If you are a huge motorcycle fan or something share it with

Be Brave

Those who follow our blog and have continued to follow , even though the writers we 're almost abandoned our beloved children, thank you! As with all stages of life , we must make choices and decisions that are more impressive in the future and in our own lives as individuals , is required for this courage. In fact, I am very skeptic for new things sometimes . I do not know why, but since I know now this particular problem, I am able to improve my manners. But that's what I need most is courage.

Courage is not intended to be a threat to the brave things and stupid choices , but to take responsibility for our own life . We are all responsible for our own happiness and we can only yourself in the end, affect the kind of life we will live . That's what I was talking about at the beginning , was that, as our blog , I began to fear the unnecessary posting. Although the purpose is to inspire others and myself at the same time for new things and experience how life could become more fulfilled .

I want to get other people interested in new things as much as the other bloggers and exemplar make me . It is, however, a different matter how this is done ;) But I need courage and help to achieve this .

At the moment I live a boring time in the rich exchange that brings the most strange moments in front of me. At the same time I look forward to one of the most important things in my life that can change everything. That is also why courage is important, but difficult to achieve , and I hope to achieve this with you !
