How old are you both?
20 and 20.
How long have you been together?
Since 13th of August, 2011.
How did you meet?
At the meetup in Oslo, Norway, last March.
Where did you guys meet?
At Monica's karaoke party on the first night.
What was the first meeting like?
Good, having fun with mutual friends.
In which point did you know what you would like to be more than just friends?
Hard to tell, there was always an attraction, but maybe a month or two after we first met.
Who asked who out or who admitted their feelings first?
We don't remember, haha. But it was always implied.
Was it love at first sight?
No, but attraction yes.
Was it Viivi who first started to fancy Davy or?
D: I guess it was me, since I knew who she was before she knew who I was.
When was your first kiss and how was it?
Extremely romantic. (Piss ass drunk at a party in Oslo, haha)
How often do you see?
There's been few months between eveytime, but when we meet we spend a longer time (2-4 weeks) together.
Are you planning to move together?
If everything goes as planned, yes. Depends on jobs and schools.
Could you think about moving together in Finland?
Have you planned the future together, like moving abroad and stuff?
Not really planned, but thought about it, yes.
Who takes longer to get ready (in the morning)?
D: We start at different times, but I'm usually done last since I always improvise and don't have a routine for what make-up or hair-do I wanna have. While Viivi is more routine based.
Why you don’t have any kissing cute pictures?
We don't like to gay it up on the internet. We know eachother.
Especially Davy is annoyed by people who have to tell everybody, all the time how much they love their partners. It's pretty much implied that you do, since you're together.
How many times per day you have sex?
We don't have a routine.
You and Davy speak English to each other, right? Have you ever had or do you have any difficulties in understanding each other?
V: Yes. Not really, or if yes it's usually me who has difficulties remembering some words when I speak.
Isn’t it really hard when you live in different countries and not be able to speak your native language with each other and when you don’t see each other so often?
Sometimes. But not as hard as you might think.
How do you keep in contact to each other when you’re not together?
Texting, Skype, other social medias.
How often do you talk with each other? (Skype etc.)
Have you published your relationship on Facebook? If so, how many likes did you get?
Yes, don't remember, since we first published it as an April's fools, haha.
Have you said "I love you" to each other?
In which point of your dating? (like how long had you been together when you said it)
Well, we kinda said it before being in a relationship.
Who said it first?
Don't remember, lol.
Was it scary? Awesome? Surprising?
Don't remember, lol. It was nice.
Did you reply straight away or think what to answer?
There was nothing really to think about... so right away, haha.
How do you spend your free time when you two are together?
D: Trying to make Viivi watch my movies, haha. Cooking, sleeping, basic stuff.
Did you have sex after the first date?
....We haven't really had "the first date" yet, because when we meet, we kinda live together.
Yep. I'm studying Audiovisual media / new media = websites, layouts, animation.
Do you work somewhere?
Do you wear wigs?
Yeah, I have two.
Have you thought about moving abroad and leaving Finland? Or is Finland the place where you wanna live and work and grow old?
Well, I've always had a dream about moving away from Finland, but we'll see !
What is your idea of a perfect winter coat?
My ideal situation would be few different winter coats. One longer, one shorter and all of them in different colors. I hate winter because I don't have enough coats and I don't wanna look the same everyday wearing the same coat all the time, ahahha.
Do you like animals or would you like to have any pets (if yes, what kind of!).
I love cats (they are the only ones I care for), and we have 2 at my parent's place. Would be nice to have one on my own but I don't think I'll have money or time for it.
How do you have the money to do your shopping?
Student money, selling old stuff I don't need, etc.
How do you get the money to travel?
Same as above. Tho my parents usually pay for my trips to Jyväskylä and back.
How to know if a guy you’re talking to is the right person for you?
He understands you and vice versa. You'll notice the signs and just know it.
From all the hair colors you've ever had, which one you like the most?
I would say my current gradient hair or the ash blonde one.
Do people recognize you on the streets? If they do, do you like it if they come up and say hi?
Sometimes. But we'll, I can't really know if they do or not, unless they come and say hi !
Where did you buy your fake nails?
I don't use fake nails, I use nail tips. I bought them from eBay.
How do you do your make up?
Foundation and concealer as the base, a bit of eyebrow pencil, mascara for lashes (and only the ones close to inner corner on lower lashes), liquid eyeliner for the upper lids, dark brown eyeshadow for the bottom lids. Few different shades of browns as the eyeshadow, white shimmer eyeshadow to the inner corners and under the eyebrows. Then some fake lashes and blush and I'm ready. Sometimes I use nude lipstick or lipgloss.
Where did you buy your wigs?
From eBay, I don't wanna tell the seller tho.
How does your nail stays so long on and don’t fall off?
I wrote about it in this post. Check it out !
Who take your photos?
What kind of umbrella do you have?
A Marimekko one.
When you were at upper comprehensive school, did you have lots of friends? We're you more calm or badass?
When? 2003-2006. I had few from my class. Also got to know some of my current friends back then too. I was going trough my worst "ernu" period.
How do you buy clothes from http://fashion.mukunoki-mall.net?
I have no idea about the mall, this is what I used before: http://mukunoki-jp.net.
How do you do your hair?
Tease it, hairspray, brush away the worst mess, more hairspray. Same thing with curly hair. There's some tutorials in my blog, check category: tutorial.
Which products do you use? Any references?
For hairspray: Klippoteket Rock XXX Hard everything else I use is random stuff.
What is the make-up foundation you use?
I use MAC's Select SPF 15foundation in NC20.
What products do you use at night to remove your make-up and prep your face for bed time?
I use Lumene's make up remover for waterproof make up, some random face scrub when washing my face togehter with Lancome facewash. And then facial cream and eye cream from Yves Rocher.
What face products do you use in the morning? Same as night or different?
Which cosmetic products do you use?
Already answered about facial creams and washes above, I'm gonna do an entry of the make up products I use later, so stay tuned for it !
How do you look so Japanese?
...I don't? XD Must be the make up I guess.
What do you fill your nail with? (from a false nail's edge to a cuticle) and how do you remove it all finally?
Check this and this.
Do you spend the most of your time with Davy or your friends?
Well, when Davy is here I'm mostly with him, but when he's not I see my friends almost everyday.
Have you ever been jealous of Davy?
What is your favourite online shop from which you order most often? (excluding Ebay)
Prolly Ghost of Harlem.
Why aren't you satisfied with the stores in Finland (particularly in Helsinki)
Because I rarely find stuff that would be for my liking unless it's super expensive.
Do you walk on block pavement on heels well?
I try to avoid it, but with Litas it OK I guess.
Do you have gay among your friends? And how many?
It would be easier to ask which one of my friends isn't gay... XD
Does it make you angry/disappointed when you encounter with someone who has the same shoes/bag/hair/makeup etc?
No, I don't really care what people I don't even know have.
Have you ever worn braces?
Top-5 your favourite perfumes?
I've hardly even used 5 in my life.. XD
My ultimate favourite is Lolita Lempicka, I also like other fragrances by Lolita Lempicka and I own Si Lolita, L, and Fleur Defendue. I also like Juicy Couture's Viva La Juicy, tho I don't own it.
Is paying for a girl (by boyfriend) in cafe/restaurant/store accepted in circle of your friends?
Yes, and also if the girl pays for the guy is ok too imo. I can only answer for myself tho.
Do you speak Swedish?
Do you feel (un)comfortable being without any makeup with Davy?
No, I don't.
Do you sometimes have a language barrier with him?
I tend to forget words sometimes but I usually find another way to explain what I mean so not really. I'm mostly sad because my jokes don't usually translate to English or any other language than Finnish ;_;
Are you going to introduce Davy to your parents soon? Are they good in English/Swedish?
Actually we visited my parents last week and they liked him. Well, dad and my brother speaks English, mom not so much but she spoke with Davy too. None of us speaks Swedish.
Did you used to date Alex from Vividbeat?
Never, he's my best friend.
What was your favourite toy when you were a kid?
Hmmm... probably a stuffed toy of this thing I bought from Legoland.
Were you such a "I wanna be a princess"-girl?
Not really, I liked dressing up, but I remember being a witch, a musketeer and some hobo lady idk, not really princessy stuff. And I liked my biker mice toy.
How do you think your style has evolved during this year?
It hasn't changed that much this year, but I think about my coordinates more.
Do you feel like being a part of Finland or are you more a global girl?
Well I'm proud to be Finnish but I wanna see the world so I hope I won't be stuck in here forever !
Do you have some traditional Finnish habits?
Going to sauna every now and then? I don't really know if I have anything else. I like skiing (down hill) and ice skating tho but that's not really Finnish, isn't it?
Which eyelashes brand/type do you recommend for someone that has never worn false lashes before?
Never worn before? Hmmm, then you should just go to the town and buy cheap ones you like. Practise putting them on and wearing them at first and see if you even like them. Japan has the best lashes but it's not worth it if you're not sure you're going to wear them with everyday make up.
Isn’t it quite scary to put your lenses on with those nails?
Do you go wear gyaru style to school too?
Yes. Sometimes I'm lazy or late and don't bother to do the make up tho.
How long does it take to do your nails? (including gluing nail tips, using nail file etc.)
...Hours XD I've never checked actually. I often watch couple movies and browse the internet at the same time so time goes fast !
If you had to change your hair color, which color would you pick and why?
Red I think. Because I've been thinking about it for a long time. The reason why I don't do it, is because I already have a wig and dyeing it would be pain in the ass.
What do you think about ganguro, manba, yamanba etc.?
Not really my thing, no any specific opinion.
Is there anything you dislike about gyaru-style?
I hate the sweet stuff and especially Liz Lisa, and the huge furry boots are terrible. Also hime and agejo stuff is not my kind of stuff at all.
What label of talk/baby powder you use for your wigs?
I use "Professorin talkki" from drug store/apteekki.
Do you still like Juicy Couture after your style has changed?
Yep, I still think they have pretty neat stuff !
How long are your hair extensions exactly?
How did you manage to get your extensions to blend so well with being two-toned and not having the lighter blonde mix in with the more ash-blonde?
I dyed the extensions and my own hair with the exact same hair dye !
How do you backcomb your wigs? Do you have any special technique?
I don't really backcomb them them at all, if I want some volume in them, I just use my fingers to make them more puffy.
Do you use normal hairspray or something else and what kind of comb do you use?
I don't use hairspray on wigs. I use a basic brush for my own hair and wigs.
Am I right or has your style changed a bit? Did it changed because of Davy?
Yes it has changed, but not because of him. My style changed even before I knew who Davy was. I'm not the kind of person who would change her style because of somebody else.
Are you planning to travel to Sweden anytime soon?
Hopefully yes. I haven't had a chance to visit Davy in Sweden yet so I hope I will soon !
How has your life changed since the day you started blogging?
How has it changed because of the blog since I started, right? Not much really. I've gotten some sponsored stuff, gotten invitations to few events, given couple interviews. That's all I think, my life is pretty much the same as always.
Which are the best and the worst things that the blog has given to you?
Meeting new people and the stuff I said above are the best I think !
Worst would be when people judge my friends and people who are important to me. Judging me is fine, since I'm the one who's putting myself and my life out there but judging and insulting my boyfriend or friends like they would be accessories, is unacceptable.
Do u have any 'face limits' when it comes to your friends or getting acquainted with new people?
To be honest, face and style is ofcourse the thing I first pay attention to and decide if I wanna get to know a person. But if the person seems nice when I first meet him/her then it's kinda whatever. Unless you're a hobo or dirty. I would say any normal person who takes care of his/her hygiene.
Are you rich?
No. Everything depends on where you decide to use your money for.
For example: buy lot's of nice food and necessary stuff, cook at home and eat well. No really money for clothes etc stuff people can see = "poor". OR use all your money for clothes and hair/makeup stuff, eat out few times a month, eat only sandwiches and yoghurt at home, blog about the clothes and restaurant stuff = "instantly cool, fabulous and mega rich person".
How can you manage with those nails? Isn't it hard to do things? For example, write with a pen or with a keyboard?
No it's not. You can get used to anything if you want to. Writing with pen is easy, with keyboard too, I just use my nails for it. Actually I find doing some things harder without my nails XD
Have you ever tried lolita-style?
No, I liked lolita when I was 14 but I never got to try it. Now I think it looks kinda stupid.
Do you know any good (Finnish?) lolita-blogs?
Sorry but no. I have no interests in lolita style, so I don't know or follow any.
Would you be willing to do styling for Johanna Tukiainen if she wanted? What would it be like?
Oh yes ! Well, first of all, I'd want to do her make up and get rid of those horrendous lashes and greasy skin. I would also forget the pink glittery princess stuff and try more adult and sophisticated look for her and her age. I'd like to see her with different kind of hair too, something.. mid-brown maybe? Cut it a bit shorter and have soft curls.
She could still keep high heels and feminine stuff but cover it up a bit because with her body and age it would look better and actually make her look sexier than she does now.
Basically just change trashy to classy if it's even possible.
On the other hand I really like how she is now because she's hilarious, but can't really be taken seriously when looking and acting like she does.
If you could re-style any famous person, who would it be and how would you do it?
Can't really think of anybody else than Johanna.
Are you in good terms with Leijo?
Do you feel and see your false lashes when wearing them?
No, but well if they're starting to fall of, you can feel it. but I never see them really.
Doesn't your eyes hurt a lot because of the circle lenses + lashes? Don’t they feel heavy?
No, no and no. If you wear them correctly.
What would you want to study or work with?
I'd like to work for some magazine, doing layouts and stuff. Or do websites. Something creative anyway.
If you have so much contact lenses, why don't you do something like a giveaway, sell lenses that you don't like or use?
Because I think it's wrong to sell used ones and you shouldn't use lenses that someone else has used before.
When are you gonna sell your clothes again?
I don't know yet, I'll inform about it in my blog when I do.
Do you have PayPal credit card? If you have that one, did you get it easily?
I have PayPal and Visa Electron which are linked to eachother. It's not hard to get one, just make a PayPal account and link it to your card.
What is your favorite country?
I like Japan.
Do you listen to the GazettE anymore?
Yes I do, they're my favourite band.
Do you still like J-rock more than K-pop?
I've always liked j-rock more.
Did you feel like missing Leijo (sometimes) before you found Davy?
At first yes. Notice there was more than 2 years in between.
And why you parted from Leijo?
That's not really any of your business isn't it?
Who is your roommate?
I don't have a room mate, I have flat mates. Girl from Russia and her Estonian bf. And one other Finnish girl.
Did you know that your and Davy's relationship isn't going to last for long?
Nope, good thing you told me :-)
I've been taking classes in Japanese, Film studies, graphic design and fine arts.
Where do you live?
What kind of toothbrush do you have?
Would you like to work as a host? Why yes/no?
What do you think is better - PS3 or XBOX? Why?
Which things about Viivi are better when compared to Asian girls?
Did you like Viivi's parents?
Which one of your parents is Asian?
Do you use make-up?
5 worst things about each other?
D: That we don't really have the same taste in movies or music.
V: We visited my parents last week, they liked him.
D: About 30 minutes for the very basic, shave, applying skin creams, pick clothing, some basic hair-do.
V: I'm really bad at explaining my music taste.. Well, I like visual kei, electro, dnb, pop, party music etc. My 3 favourite bands are The GazettE, cali≠gari and Capsule. You can check my last.fm for more !
V: Not really my thing.
V: Green, black or orange. Funny thing tho, I've had orange hair twice.
V: Viivi, I know my parents didn't want to give me a long name that would've turned into a nickname. I was a bit sad about this as a kid because everybody else had a nickname except me, haha.
What's a weird habit of yours?
V: I don't know if this answer is the right one for this question or the next one, but re-heating and eating yesterday's food disgusts me and I don't want to do it. I wanna eat fresh and that's why I try to cook only the amount I will eat at once.
Do you have any weird phobias?
V: It's not that weird I guess, but I'm super afraid of dark, which is why I prefer sleeping some lights on and don't wanna watch horror movies.
What's a song you secretly LOVE to blast & belt out when you're alone?
V: Justin Bieber, can't come up with anything else.
What's the beauty rule you preach, but never ACTUALLY practice?
V: This ↑
Do you have any 'weird' body 'skills'?
V: Not really.
What's your favourite 'comfort food'/food that’s 'bad' but you love to eat it anyways?
V: Chips. Trying to avoid that part of the store everytime I go to one.
What's a phrase or exclamation you always say?
V: I don't think I have any...
V: Plucking the random hairs out, cutting the hair shorter, filling them in with eyebrow pencil, it's that simple !
V: Actually I created my blog at first just to make a layout for my friend, but I had been reading few blogs before so I wanted to start my own too, and I got bored of Livejournal and my old blog. Nowdays there's much more pressure in blogging than before, when it was mostly just for myself and my friends. But it's still nice to have one !
Do you have a dream you wish to accomplish in life?
V: To live a good life? Hahah, I don't know.
Do you want to have kids in the future?
V: Haven't decided yet.
What bands' gigs have you been to? Which one was the best? Is there a band you'd like to see?
V: Some random Finnish bands when I was young, like Aikakone, Nylon Beat, The Rasmus (still like them tho !) but I've mostly seen japanese bands live. BLOOD, Ayabie, D'espairsRay, MUCC, Dir en grey, The GazettE, girugämesh, Miyavi, vistlip, Aicle., Dio -distraught overlord-, Yumachi&Aina and ALSDEAD. I've also seen Pendulum, Huoratron and Skrillex, can't remember anything else.
The GazettE was obviously my favourite. Also liked Pendulum and Huoratron a lot. I'd like to see all those three again.
And if you count bands/artist I haven't seen live that i really wanna see, I would like to see; 東京事変, X-JAPAN, 2NE1, DEATHGAZE, lynch., -Oz-, MEJIBRAY, Ghost (swe), Iron Maiden, Metalucifer, Scooter, 凛として時雨, RADWIMPS and マキシマムザホルモン just to mention a few bands I'd like to see live.
V: Nah, I've played piano and guitar but it wasn't my thing really.
Do you have one best friend or a group of equally good ones?
V: Yes, I consider Alex as my best friend, but I have a bigger group of close and very good friends.
V: Probably my mom.
Something you regret?
V: Mostly some things I've said.
V: Can't think of anything else than fashion inspirations, i don't have any "one person" who would inspire me, I get my inspiration from Tumblr and magazines, mostly.
Are you a perfectionist? If so, does it hold you back or do you see it as a resource?
V: Yes, I don't think it holds me back in any way.
Your best childhood memory?
V: Same I guess ↑
Your favourite ice-cream flavour?
V: I actually don't care for the basic vanilla, strawberry or chocolate flavours at all. And I hate everything with mint flavour so.... I guess my favourites are liqourice, strawberry cheesecake and rom&raisin.
What would you like to tell your readers?
V: I appreciate all comments I get, positive and negative ones. I hope you'll enjoy my blog in the future too !
V: Yep, couple times a month I'd say. Usually if there's some specific party.
Which are the things that first made you get a crush (on eachother)?
V: Looks ofcourse, and when I met him for the first time he seemed like a nice person too, so why not to get to know him better.
V: Didn't really react in any way, just "ok", hahah.
V: Asia and USA. Why? Hmm.. there's lots of things I wanna see and experience.
V: Paris Hilton.
From where do you get your inspiration when it comes to style?
V: I answered to this few questions earlier.
V: Not really, but I ask for Davy's opinion when I buy clothes and I can't decide myself.
V: I'm not that interested in politics... and I've never voted for anyone, does this make me a bad person, lol.
Harry Potter or Twilight?
V: I like Harry Potter more. Because it's not as awkward as Twilight.
Favourite movies and/or genres? Do your tastes fit together?
V: Romance and comedy. Sometimes adventure. Our tastes aren't really similar, sometimes it's hard to find movies we both want to see.
V: I don't really have any advice, just be reasonable and yourself. Don't act like a crazy bitch, unless you are one. Good luck then, hahahah. Don't take it too seriously.
V: Yep. I think it's easier to tell what's wrong with the outfit or pick one for the other.
V: ....I burned myself when I made bacon for breakfast once. SORRY can't think of anything else.
What size are you?
V: M/38, shoesize 38/24-25cm. When buying jap clothing I pick L or F.
Are you getting each other presents for xmas?
V: Are they?
V: No, it's quite entertaining, haha.
V: Answering to all this would be boring and take a long time, but here's one video of us anyway !
V: Isn't it a bit too early to think about this stuff... XD
