intro

Hi and welcome! This is Black Saliva, a style focused blog written by Viivi Vanessa R.

I'm a 24 year old girl from Helsinki, Finland and this blog is my own little space on the internet where I can share my thoughts, outfits and write a bit about my life and stuff that I do.

For first timers, I'd say take a quick look at ABOUT ME and get to know me a little before browsing through my posts.

Anyway, I hope you like my blog and leave me a comment.
Enjoy your stay!

5000

Heippa vaan ! Viimeviikolla pamahti ihan odottamatta 5000 lukijan raja rikki ! Kiitos siis paljon kaikille teille siitä Jossain vaiheessa lopetin kokonaan tiettyjen lukijamäärien rikki menemisestä ilmoittamisen, viimesin mistä taisin ilmottaa oli 1000 (ok, en pistä päätäni pantiks tästä. koitin ettii mut en löytäny örr no se nyt ei oo niin tärkeetä ees).

Enivei, viistuhatta ei ehkä tunnu isolta kun lueskelee blogeja joilla on se 20 000 lukijaa, mut 5000 on mulle ihan älyttömän iso luku ja asettaa kyl pikkasen paineitakin jos nyt totta puhutaan :''D Muistan et sillonku alotin tän blogin, niin tota koko lukijaboksia ei ollut ees olemassa vielä ! *nostaa hipsterlaseja*

Itseasiassa tätä blogiakin tulee täyteen nelisen vuotta enskuun lopussa ! Muistellaampa sen kunniaks vasta bloginsa aloittanutta 17 vuotiasta Viiviä hetken aikaa ja verrataan tähän päivään, tasan neljän vuoden jälkeen. Onko mikään muuttunut? :D

Hello you all ! Last week, without expecting it, my blog reached 5000 readers ! So, thank you all so much for that At some point I stopped announcing every 1000 readers I had reached. Infact, I think 1000 was the last time I wrote something like this.

Anyway, five thousand followers might not seem so big when you read blogs with 20 000 followers and more, but for me, 5000 is a damn big number and puts me under a little pressure about blogging to be honest :''D I remember when I started my blog, the whole reader/follower widget didn't even exist ! *hipsterglasses*

Also, at the end of the next month, this blog has existed 4 years ! And because of that, we shall now recall some memories from the time I had just started blogging. I was 17 years old and now I'm 21, has anything changed? :D


Itseasiassa tulikin tässä viimeviikon aikana puheeks Alexin ja Tuomaksen kanssa, että mikä tässä blogissa on muuttunut jne. Parempaan vai huonompaan päin?

Oon saanut aika usein kommenttia joka menee about näin:
"tykkäsin blogistas/tyylistäs paljon enempi ennen :("

Okei, too bad että tyyli miellytti ennen enempi. Oon kuitenkin nykyään paljon enempi selvillä tyylini kanssa kuin blogin alkuaikoina, jolloin oikeen mikään ei vastannut sitä mitä oisin halunnut. Mutta niillä mentiin siitä huolimatta :D

2009 kun kävin Japanissa ja oli ns. kaikki ovet avoinna tyylin suhteen ja pysty lähteen mihin vaan suuntaan. No, mähän lähin sit jokaiseen kun en osannut päättää, ostin tyyliin jokaïsesta vastaan tulleesta kaupasta jotain kun kaikki oli niin siistii ja uutta. Mut eihän siitä loppupeleissä seurannut muuta kuin sillisalaatti ja kaappi oli täynnä vaatteita joista juuri mikään ei sopinut tyylillisesti yhteen.

Nyt oon sit karsinut lähes kaiken pois joka ei tunnu omalta ja vaatekaapissa olevat vaatteet mätsää paremmin yhteen keskenään ! Aijoo, ihan pakko sanoo vielä että ihmetyttää miksi näitä kommentteja tyylistä tulee vieläkin, oon kuitenkin näyttänyt suht samalta viimeiset kaks vuotta kuitenkin.. hmm.

Mut mitä sit blogiin tulee, oon karsinut aikalailla sellaset random kälätys/hengaus postaukset pois koska oon aatellu ettei ne ketään kiinnosta ja postaan vaan sillonkun on ns. "asiaa". En kyllä sit tiedä onko tää niinkään  hyvä juttu, kertokaa te ! Mun on hirveen vaikee ite hahmottaa tilannetta ja koittaa keksiä mistä aiheista muiden ihmisten on kivointa lukea :3 Tuntuu epämiellyttävältä lähtee kahlaamaan omia vanhoja noloja postauksia läpi, mutten haluu poistaakaan niitä koska ne on kuitenkin osa mua. Ehkä joskus mummelina voin lukee mitä oon tehny nuorena tyttönä sit !

Tietty tuun postaamaan jatkossakin niitä juttuja joiden postaamisesta nautin enempi, mutta aattelin kysyy teidänkin mielipidettä nyt pitkästä aikaa, etenkin jos ootte lukenut mun blogia ihan alkuajoista lähtien!

Last week me and Alex and Tuomas were discussing about how my blog has changed during these years, for better or worse?

I get this kind of comments to my blog quite often:
"i liked your style/blog a lot more before :("

Well, too bad if you liked the style better before. The truth is that I am much more clear about my style and what I want nowdays than I was around the time I started writing this blog, when nearly nothing about me looked like how I wanted to, but I had no choice than to live with it :D

In 2009, when I visited Japan, I was finally able to start buying the kind of clothes I always wanted to, but didn't quite know what style to go for. So ofcourse I went for everything at the same time, bought clothing from every store I visited because it was all so cool and new. But in the end it was a big mess when nothing really matched with anything.

Now I have gotten rid of almost everything I feel is not ME, and as the result, most of the stuff in my wardrobe matches nowdays ! Oh, I just have to add this too but I wonder why I STILL get comments about "how my style has changed" because it's been the same for atleast 2 years now... hmm.

And what comes to this blog, I don't post as much random stuff as I used to, because I thought that wasn't interesting to anybody outside my friend group. But based on the comments I've got, I guess I was wrong :'D It's really hard for me to try to figure out the situation by myself and know what stuff do you enjoy reading the most in this blog, so you tell me ! :3 I feel uncomfortable about going through my old posts, but they're still a part of me so I won't delete them. Maybe I'll enjoy reading them when I'm 70 years old, who knows !

Ofcourse I will be posting about the stuff I enjoy posting about the most, but I thought I'd ask your opinion about it now, especially if you've been reading my blog since the very beginning. (Ok might be a bit hard for you guys, I started translating my posts in 2010 but anyway...)

Nojoo, enough of diipadaapa, jos randomit kuvat miellyttää niin postaan tähän väliin kuvia yhdeltä perjantailta kun oltiin tutkiskelemassa kaupunkia Jopon, Alexin ja Tobin kanssa ! Koitettiin ottaa asukuviakin mut eipä oikeen onnistunu niin tuli tällasii sen sijaan. Enivei, Päällä:

^ That's what I wore one Friday when we went exploring the city with Jopo, Alex and Tobi ! Tried to take outfit pics too but they kinda failed and we came up with these instead... But I guess that's okay if that's what you prefer in this blog anyway !

Walk that walk, beibi.

GN + GOH gets !

Tadah, nettishoppasin vähän Glad Newsin ja Ghost of Harlemin aleissa ! Tai no, en tiiä onko melkein kuudenkybän koltut mitenkään halpoja alelöydöiks mut ainakaan GN'n vaatteet ei tosta kyllä koskaan halpene joten pienikin ale tuntui hyvältä :-D Tosin pieni ale oli kyllä tbh aika laiha lohtu postikulujen ja tullien jälkeen. Oh well.

Välittäjänä taas kerran Treasure Japan, jonka kanssa on yleensä menny tosi sujuvasti ja nopsaan, mutta nyt sain oottaa tyyliin viikon verran mun shipping invoicee. Syyksi sain vaan et "various reasons", aha. No mut pääasia et nyt kuitenkin sain mun vaatteet jee. Tällasia tilasin siis, ellette Twitterissä jo nähneet tätä kuvaa:

Tadah, did some online shopping at Glad News & Ghost of Harlem sales ! Or well, I'm not sure if almost 60 euros for a dress is considered as a cheap sales find but GN's clothing will never really get cheaper than that so even the tiniest discount felt good :-D That joy was ruined tho after I paid the shipping and customs fee, but let's not think about that, haha.

I used Treasure Japan's shopping service once again, as it's always been really good, but this time I had to wait like one week for them to send me the shipping invoice. I mailed them about that and the only explanation I got was "various reasons", hmph. But the main thing is that I got my clothing yay. This is what I ordered if you missed it on Twitter:
Vaihteeks vähän väriäkin mun vaatekaappiin :-D Toi sini-violetti Glad Newsin kukkamekko on itseasiassa mun lemppari näistä ! Siks saattekin siitä kuvaa ekana nyt:

Bought something with colour to my wardrobe for a change :-D That blue/purple flower print dress by Glad News is actually my favourite one of these ! That's why you'll get pics of me wearing it first:

Näätte loput vaatteista tulevissa postauksissa sit ! ;--) Mitä mieltä, mistä vaatteesta/asusteesta tykkäsitte eniten?

You'll see the rest of the clothes in the upcoming posts ! ;--) What do you think, which dress/top/accessory you liked the best?

outfit from a week ago

Oli tarkotus postaa tää asu jo viimeviikolla mut se sit vähän jäi... Enivei, tältä näytin tasan viikko sitten ! Anteeks mun kuoleman kalpea ihonväri, tältä näytän ilman itseruskettavia eikä mun ihonväri muutu mihinkään suuntaan vaikka kuinka makaisin koko kesän rannalla :-D

Syy siihen miks hinkutin kaikki vanhat purkkirusketuksen jämät pois on se et sain tänään postissa St. Tropezin itseruskettavan ja haluun testaa et vetääks se mun ihon minkä väriseks. Nojoo, ei siitä nyt enempää vielä, review tulee asap !

I was supposed to post this outfit last week already but oh, well.... Anyway, this is how I looked exactly a week ago ! Please excuse my deadly white skin color, but that's sadly how it is without any selftanners and it won't change at all, not even if I would spend the whole summer sunbathing :-D

The reason why I washed off all the remains of selftanners on my skin, is because I got some St. Tropez selftanner today and I'm going to review it asap. And I need to see how it works for my super pale skin color. Well, more about that later !

Nojoo, käytiin tona päivänä Tornissa Alexin, Tobin ja Punin kanssa ihailemassa maisemia ja juomassa ylikalliit sidukat. Melkonen turistiterassi Helsingin kattojen yllä, mut oli ihan kivaa ja itseasiassa munkin eka kerta siellä !

Oh well, on the same day we visited Torni with Alex, Tobi and Puni. We drank some overpriced ciders and enjoyed the view which was quite nice actually ! It was my first time visiting the Torni rooftop terrace btw.

Nappasin muutaman kuvan Helsingistä kun oltiin siellä ylhäällä :D

I took couple pics of Helsinki while we were up there :D

Another pic of my outfit, hahah.

Lopuks mentiin vielä syömään koska alkoi olla nälkä :D Puni ties jonkun sushipaikan Kampin lähellä joten mentiin sinne sit !

Afterwards we wanted go eat something because everyone was quite hungry :D Puni knew this one sushi place near Kamppi so we went there !

Mun annokset..... Ei ollut yhtään nälkä :----) Oli hirmu hyvää eikä mitenkään kallistakaan !

My food..... I wasn't hungry at all :-----) The food was so good and not that expensive either !

"Saanks syödä jo???"

Aijoo, piti postaa tän hetkiset kynnet aikasemman postauksen yhteydessä mut unohdin sit. Noh, tässäpä nää !

I was supposed to post a pic of my current nails in my previous post but I forgot to do it. Sooo, here they are !

Hi ! I took an unplanned break from blogging for couple of weeks, sorry for that ! Just didn't feel like writing and I was kinda busy. I always think that I would have more time for blogging during the summer, but turns out: I always end up updating less. Dunno why is that, hahah.

Anyway, what's new is that I finally got my haircolor right and now my own hair and extensions match. But it wasn't as easy as I thought... XD Because my own hair was darker than the extensions, I thought I'd bleach it and then dye it gray again and that would do it. BUT. When I started with the bleaching, my hair turned like neon orange or something weird and I was freaking out. Did another bleaching and used a white toner = my hair became white. THEN, I dyed it again with the gray and turns out, my hair was too light for it and it became light blue... :----D Then finally I went to buy some blonde hairdye which removed the blueness and tadah. Matching haircolor finally accomplished ! Now it just needs some re-dyeing every now and then.

Anyway, this is what I wore on Monday when I met up with Anni after work. Believe it or not, but the dress is actually the same as in this pic and the hair accessory is a belt that came with these shorts :---D
I wish I would find more ways to wear all my clothes like I did with this outfit ! It felt almost like wearing brand new stuff hahahh.

Here's a pic of me and Anni ! ♥


Hmmmm well, I think I'll just be posting some pics I've taken with my phone during the past couple weeks:
