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!

adapt or die

Ja näin kaikui näytöksen viimeiset sävelet perjantai-iltana. Kuvasin tän videon iPadilla näytöksen lopusta. En tosin tainnut ihan loppuun asti ajatella, kun kuvasin tän tyhmästi pystyssä, mutta eipä se mitään. Koko näytöksen voi katsella täältä huomattavasti parempi laatuisena.
On varmaan sanomattakin selvää, että näytöksen vaatteet olivat upeaa katseltavaa.

Here's a short video I filmed with my iPad at the fashion show on Friday evening, last week. Seems like I didn't think the situation through because the video is vertical, but hehe nevermind. You can watch the full show from this link with much better quality. You should be able to view it outside Finland too.
I guess I don't need to tell you, but the clothes were amazing.

Nappasin nämä kaksi kuvaa omalta paikaltani, jonka jälkeen laitoin kameran pois. Mun ja Alexin paikat oli toisessa rivissä, koska mentiin istumaan vähän myöhässä. Paikoilta näki kyllä todella hyvin, mutta mua häiritsi noi edessä istuvien päät jotka tuli väkisinkin kuviin.

I took these two pictures from my seat and after that, decided to put my camera away. Alex and me had seats on the second row, because we went to get our seats a bit late. You could see the models really well from our seats, but taking pictures kinda sucked because the people on the first row were on the way.

Parempi kuva illan asusta.

Better picture of my outfit for the night.

Näytöksen jälkeen käytiin moikkaamassa Mertiä ja muita tuttuja backstagella ja syötiin Alien kakkua.

After the show, we went to the backstage to say hi to Mert and other people and had some Alien cake.



Nyt oonkin sit maanantaista lähtien maannut kotona peiton alla kipeenä, mutta nyt alkaa onneksi jo vähän helpottaa ja hyvä niin, sillä huomenna suuntaan kohti Jyväskylää viikonlopuksi ja junamatka vois olla aika tuskallinen super kipeenä. Noh, toivotaan parasta.

And now I've been sick since Monday and spent my time laying under the covers at home. But luckily I've been starting to feel more okay today. Lucky me, because tomorrow I will pack my bags and head to Jyväskylä for the weekend and a three hours long train trip could be a bit painful if you're feeling ill. Well, let's hope for the best.

tonight we wear black

Our friend Mert is launching his 3rd collection, Army of generation today, so me and Alex are gonna go check it out.

The dresscode is black, so I decided to paint my lips black too ! I never wear lipstick because my upper lip is retarded shape, but since black is so bold color, I was able to re-shape it, hahaha. What do you think, Y/N?

Oh yeah, haha, I broke one of my nails last weekend and decided to remove them all. Because of this, I tried the Caviar manicure by Ciaté for tonight ! I think it makes even my short ugly nails look okay-ish.


Today's outfit:

Gonna post more about the fashion show later, see ya !

it's here - the new layout !

Haha, ei mennytkään niin kauaa tän layoutin viimeistelyyn mitä olin arvioinut. Hirveellä draivilla puskin valmiiks viime yönä, koska loppu häämötti jo niin lähellä etten malttanut mennä nukkumaan ennenkuin olin saanut tän valmiiks.

ELI, mitä uutta ja vähän siitä, että miksi tämmönen?
Vanha layout kerkeskin olla jo vaatimattomasti vähän reilu vuoden, ja mielessä oli ollut uus layout jo kesästä lähtien. Alunperin sketchasin tällasen nopeen sutun ollessani töissä yks päivä mutta ei kyllä taas menny ihan niinku suunnittelin.

Haha, didn't take as long as I thought it would to finish the layout. I was sooo close getting it done and I didn't wanna go to sleep before I got it finished yesterday night.

SO, what's new and why it turned out like it did?
I had the previous layout for a bit longer than a year and I actually started planning a new one on summer. This was my original sketch for the layout which I drew quickly one day at work , buuuut as always, didn't really go as I had planned.

Does anybody else like to draw their plans on paper before starting to work on them?
Ensinnäkin halusin oottaa et värjään tukan harmaaks ennenku otan mitään kuvia layouttia varten, koska mitä järkee ottaa kuvia jos tukanväri vaihtuu pian kuitenkin? Niinpä.
Noh, sain tukan värjättyy ja sit tuli taas kaikkee muuta eikä ollu aikaa saatika inpiraatiota alkaa vääntään mitään ja kunnollisten kuvien ottaminenkin jäi.

Meni kauan ennenkuin sain inspiksen takaisin, ja viime kuussa käytiinkin Davyn kanssa Heikin (kiitos Heikki !!) luona ottamassa muutamat kuvat yks ilta, joita tulisin sit käyttämään tässä uudessa layoutissa. Kuvat ei kuitenkaan ihan ollu sellasia mitä olin tohon mun alkuperäiseen visioon suunnitellu, mut ehkä ihan hyvä niin koska tästä tuli oikeestaan parempi näin XD

En tiedä mistä idea tähän alunperin edes tuli, mutta yks main point tässä oli nyt se että layoutissa olis 2 taustakuvaa. Toinen monistuva, fixed ja koko taustalla (tekstiprintti) ja toinen vaan vaakasuoraan monistuva (eli tässä tapauksessa toi musta valuva asia, josta oon niin ylpee koska oon maailman surkein piirtään koneella MITÄÄN, mut ton osasin, jeejee !).

Oisin oikeestaan halunnut leveemmän tästä postauspalkista että ois mahtunu 640px levyset kuvat mut en saanu millään tota mun lärviä sit aseteltua kivasti tohon sidebarin päälle jos se olis ollu yhtään kapeempi, joten piti leventää sitäkin. Jos olisin leventäny molempia, ois tullu ihan ylilevee hirvee pökäle eikä tausta ois näkyny läppärillä selatessa ollenkaan, joten samapa tuo sitten. Eipähän tarttenu rupee muokkaamaan vanhojen postausten kuvia leveeseen palkkiin sopivaksi (tein näin viimeks ku vaihdoin layoutin, mikä pilkunviilaaja?)

Nojuu, tällanen tuli ! Vanhassakin layoutissa nähty, hyväksi todettu vaihtuva banneri ja sivupalkista poistin tavaraa, siirsin FAQ'n uudelle sivulle samoin kuin SPONSOR?'n. Erillisen LINKS -sivun poistin ja siirsin ne kaikki tohon sivupalkkiin, koska en ikinä jaksanu itekään käydä sieltä toiselta sivulta klikkaileen itteeni niihin blogeihin mitä tykkään lukee.

Tässäpä tää, kommenttia, risuja ja ruusuja otetaan vastaan :)

First of all, I wanted to wait till I get my hair dyed grey before taking any photos for the layout, because what's the point if you're gonna change your haircolor soon anyway? Ikr.
Well, got my hair dyed pretty soon, but I was so busy with other stuff and lost my inspiration for a while so it took me a long time before I actually got this started.

Last month me and Davy went to Heikki's (thank you Heikki !!) to take so photos which I was supposed to use for the layout. The pics turned out great, but not really how I had thought so they didn't fit in my plan. But maybe that was a good thing? Now looking at this, I think it looks better than my sketch XD

Dunno where the original idea came from, but the main point was to have multiple backgrounds. One covering the whole background (the text print) and another one would be a horizontal one, like a background for the banner (the dripping droopy black whatever thing, which I'm really proud of ! Made it myself tho I suck at drawing with computer so bad !).

I wanted to get a wider mainbar for the posts so I could fit 640px wide pics in it, but I had to make the sidebar wider too to be able to fit my face on top of it. So, if I've made both of them wider, it would've been way too wide and possibly messy too. And I'm actually happy that now I don't need to resize the pics in my previous posts to fit in a wider mainbar (I did this last time when I changed my layout, perfectionist much?)

Anyway, this is how it turned out ! Like the previous layout, this one also has a changing banner. I also removed some stuff from th sidebar, for example FAQ now has it's on page and so does SPONSOR?. I deleted the LINKS -page and now all the blog's I read can be found on the sidebar, because I hated to go on the separate page to check out people's blogs hehe.

Hope you like it, please leave a comment and tell me what you think :)

EDIT:
Tältä kuuluisi näyttää, jos näyttää eriltä koneellasi/selaimellasi niin kerro !

This is how it should look like, if it looks different on your computer/browser, let me know !

blog related news

Heippa ja anteeksi taas vähäinen päivittely, mutta tällä kertaa mulla on oikeesti hyvä syy siihen !
Oon nimittäin työstänyt tässä viimepäivinä uutta layouttia, ja tällä hetkellä näyttäis siltä että noi "about me" jne sivut pitää vielä kirjoittaa uusiks, mutta muuten alkais olla pikkuhiljaa redi.

Ei vitsi en malttais olla julkasematta sitä, mut toisaalta haluun et kaikki on just eikä melkeen valmista ennenku näätte sen. Blogin Facebook sivuilta löytyy jo pienen pieni sneakpeek ;-)

Noh, tällä viikolla vaihtuu jokatapauksessa :D

Hi and sorry again for the lack of updates, but this time I actually have a good reason for it !
I've been working on a new layout for my blog, and at this moment it looks like it's slowly starting to come together. I still have to re-write "about me" etc pages but other than that, it's kinda ready.

I soooo want to show it to you already, but on the other hand, I want everything to be 100% ready before I do. But there's a teeny tiny sneak peek on my blog's Facebook page if you wanna check it out ;-)

Anyway, gonna publish the new layout during this week :D


Mä jatkan nyt koodailuja, mutta tässä muutamat postaamatta jääneet kuvat meidän TOISISTA, Halloween pirskeistä jotka järkättiin siis 31.10. jälkeisenä viikonloppuna. Sain puvun lainaan töistä Satulta ja kengät Siniltä joten niistäpä irtoskin sitten oiva asu illaksi !

I'm gonna continue the coding now, but here's few unposted pics from our SECOND Halloween party which was held on the weekend after the 31th of October. I borrowed the pirate outfit from Satu from work and the shoes from Sini and they made a great party outfit for the night !

Aye aye I'm the most feared pirate of the Seven Seas.

Sini being dead-something and me.

Us girls !

The whole party group ! Had a fun night~

camouflage

coat glad news boots jeffrey campbell scarf gina tricot everything else ghost of harlem

En osannu päättää mitkä pari kuvaa postaisin, niin päädyin sitten tällaiseen pienimuotoiseen spämmiin... 8-) Tässäpä tän päiväinen (ja eilinen) look ! Tilasin viimekuun lopulla tän takin ja pitkän valkoisen lirtin ja sain ne nyt pari päivää sitten.

En oikeestaan ees tykkää vihreestä ja oon aiemmin inhonnut camokuosia, mutta joku tässä takissa vaan sai mussa aikaan sen "pakkosaadapakkosaada" -reaktion. Joten, googlettelin noin 10 kauppaa jotka myi Glad Newsiä, koska tää oli sold out melkein kaikista. No, yhestä kaupasta onneks tärppäs ja sain ostettuu omani and I'm lovin' it.

Samalla kertaa tilasin myös tän Ghost of Harlemin valkoisen lärpylän joka on ihana ja kivaa vaihelua kun yleensä mulla on vaan mustaa ja harmaata. Molemmissa kivat japsien engrish tekstiprintit joista en nyt oo ihan varma et mitä ne on oikeen ajanu takaa. Varmaan jotain tosi badassia kuten aina.
Eipä sillä, en mä kyl ite koskaan kiinnitä huomiota et mitä jossain paidassa lukee jos nään tekstiprinttii. Kuhan ei nyt mitään Angel 69 -settii kuiteskaan.

Käytiin Sinin ja Marinkan kans ihasteleen Stokkan joulukoristeosastoa ja voi että, oispa jo joulu 8-( Haluisin myös kuusen mutta eipä tänne mun koppiin mitään mahu... Ehkä vielä jonain päivänä.

Anyway, tän syksyn/talven trendi, camokuosi: yay or nay?

I couldn't decide which few photos to post so I decided to do a tiny photospam... 8-) Here's my look today (and yesterday) ! I ordered this coat and the long white cardigan at the end of last month and got them couple days ago.

Actually I don't even like green and used to hate camoprint, but something about this coat made me go all "hurr durr must have it". So, I did some googling and found like 10 stores which sold Glad News stuff, because this one was sold out almost everywhere. Luckily, one store still had it stocked and I got myself one and I'm lovin' it.

At the same time, I ordered this white cardigan from Ghost of Harlem because it was awesome and I mostly have similar stuff in black and grey so it's nice to have something lighter for a change. Both have funny engrish text print which I don't quite understand. What where the japanese thinking when they designed it? Probably something wannabe badass as usual.
I don't really care tho, I never check what a t-shirt says if it has a text print sooo, or well, as long as it doesn't have like "Angel 69" -kind of stuff.

Visited Stockmann's Christmas department today with Sini and Marinka and found awesome stuff. Oh, how I wish it would be Christmas already 8-( I also want to have a xmas tree at my place but I can't really fit anything in this box I'm living in.... Maybe someday.

Anyway, this fall/winter's trend, camoprint: yay or nay?

bad sushi and today's look

Näin tänään töitten jälkeen Tiinaa, Siniä ja Marinkaa sushin ja juoruilun merkeissä. Sushi oli pahaa mutta juorut hyviä. Nojuu, tältä näytin tänään:

I met Tiina, Sini and Marinka today after work for sushi and gossiping. The sushi was terrible but gossiping fun. Oh well, this was my look for today:

hat spirit store t-shirt ghost of harlem cardigan fuga jacket wholesale-dress scarf pull&bear
skirt gina tricot necklace ghost of harlem belts gina tricot, mohito stockings backstreet shoes dinsko

Ehkä tajusittekin jo, mutta sain eilen postissa tän peruukin. Tilasin sen jo kuukausi sitten (kuten myös yhden toisenkin joka ei oo vielä saapunut..), ja tiesin että postitukseen menee joku sata vuotta joten eipä sen väliä.

Sanonpa vaan, että ei olis tän saapuminen voinut parempaan saumaan sattua, koska kun aamulla katoin ikkunasta ulos ja näin horisontaalista räntäsadessa, ei olis tullut mieleenkään alkaa väkertää omaa tukkaa ihmismäisen näköiseksi. Onneks muovihius kestää tuulen ja tuiverruksen.

Tää on ihan vähän vaaleempi harmaa kuin mitä mun oma tukka, mutta pituudelta ja malliltaan lähes sama.

Maybe you noticed it already, but I got this wig via mail yesterday. I ordered it like a month ago (along with one other wig which I haven't recieved yet...), and I know it would take like hundred years to arrive so that was ok.

Anyway, just wanted to say that this was the best possible time to recieve it, since when I took a look from my window this morning, all I could see was horizontal raining/snowing so nooo way I would even try to fix my own hair when the weather is being an ass like today. Luckily plastic hair won't get ruined no matter what the weather is.

This wig is slightly lighter grey than my own hair but the lenght and cut is almost the same.

Vaikka tukka kestääkin keleistä riippumatta, niin tää mun hattu kyllä lens tuulen mukana varmaan neljä kertaa pois päästä :---D

Although my hair didn't get ruined, my hat flew away like four times today because it was so windy :---D

Pahat sushit. Listalla luki uramaki (väärinpäin pyöritetty rulla) ja sain eka normit jonka jälkeen ne teki mulle uudet kun sanoin et uramaki ei kyl oo sama asia kuin normimaki. Oikeesti miks laittaa listalle jotain jos ei tiedä mikä se on? :DD "Ei me koskaan tehä näitä näin". Just joo.
Ei kyl ollu mistään kotosin noi toisetkaan pyörylät joissa oli lihaa (wtf), kurkkuu ja Srirachaa. This shit is not sushi, ugh.

Jälkeenpäin joinattiin Alexin ja Heikin seuraan Helkaan yksille ja oli kivaa. Kotimatkalla kävin postin kautta hakemassa paketin, näätte myöhemmin mitä siinä oli :)

The bad sushi. I ordered uramaki rolls from the menu and they brough me normal ones. I told them that uramaki is not the same thing as regular maki. Seriously why do you put it on your menu if you don't know what it is? :DD "We never do them like this". Right.
The second set wasn't good either, they had meat (wtf), cucumber and Sriracha sauce. This shit is not susi, ugh.

After eating, we joined Alex and Heikki at Helka for ciders, which was fun. On my way home, I picked up a packet from my post office. I'll show you later what was inside it :)

from russia with love

A quick post about our trip to Russia this week ! Mostly spamming pictures from the trip hehe.

Our trip to Russia began on Monday evening. This is me in the terminal with my cute Gloomy Bear passport. I bought the covers when I was like sixteen or something :--D

Destination: St. Petersburg.

Finally on the boat ! Didn't bother doing my makeup in the morning because I had work before our trip could start, so I did it on the boat. Here's my traveling compay, Sini, Alex and Heikki !

After I had fixed my makeup and Sini was done with her hair, we were super hungry and went to eat at an Italian restaurant on the boat. Everyone else except me ordered pasta bolognese and the portions were super tiny so instead of getting full from the meals, they got mad....

I ordered a pizza, it wasn't anything special but atleast I became full :-D

After eating, we did some shopping at the Tax Free and had a little party in our cabin. After drinking a while, we went dancing at the tiny dance floor they had at the boat's "club"... The dancefloor was like 9m2 but surprisingly we had an awesome time partying there XD

Bunnies.

I think I booked a B-class cabin for us with no window, but when we got there, there actually was a window ! Not with an amazing view tho, and there was some crew men walking past the window in the morning so we decided to keep the curtains shut XD

We arrived to St. Petersburg at 10:30am, but unfortunately Alex had to stay in the cabin because he spent the night in our cabin's toilet.. You might guess what happened.
This is the video I took right after we got out of the Terminal, hahaha so Russian !

Me, ready to explore the city !


Morskoy Voksal, St. Petersburg.

We took a bus from the Terminal to the center. The bus dropped us off in front of this building, it was quite cool.

We were super hungry so the first thing we did, was to go eat and we picked McD's... I still don't quite understand why the hamburger box says "PORN".... lol.

Snapped a picture of Nevsky Prospekt street while walking.

Me and Sini at Zara.

Another pic of Nevsky Prospekt.

We checket out couple malls at the center like Stockmann (which was really weird, like you enter the building from one tiny door, you come in to a tiny room with some stuff and then there's a door to another tiny room and wtf. It was so different than the one we have in Helsinki) and Gostiny dvor. Didn't find anything to buy because they mostly had brand clothing stores.

So we decided to go to a cafe, and here's the view from the Cafe Singer's window. Pretty cool.


Me and Sini looking very excited. I felt a bit ill during the day tbh, because the boat was shaking super much on the way to St. Petersburg, so even when walking at the city I felt like the ground was shaking. It was awful. Not to mention it was super cold and windy on that day.

One of my readers suggested I should try a fruit beer in Russia, even if I'm not a fan of beer in general. I noticed they had it on the menu so I ordered a raspberry beer. It was surprisingly good !

I can still feel the freezing wind from that day when looking at this picture. Hrrr.

Unfortunately there wasn't much time so we had to return to the boat pretty soon... I know there would've been cool places to check outside the main center, but we were too afraid to go and try find them when we had so little time. I'd like to visit St. Petersburg again on summer and with more time ! Maybe someday~

Lol'd a bit at that magnet at the terminal's souvenir store. Stockgolm. Why do they even sell those in Russia?

This was also weird. The entrance/exit of the boat. Just... stairs?

After we got back to the boat, we didn't really do much XD Alex woke up when we got back and luckily was alive, haha. Later we had dinner on the boat and I can tell you this was the worst meal of my life. Microwave burger and onionrings, ugh.
