My style in Elle Magazine

 Elle Finland asked me to show them some of my favourite pieces from my wardrobe.

I like to keep my make-up simple. Left daytime, right evening look. 
My daytime make-up is just foundation, eyeliner, eyebrow pencil and red lipstick.

They put me next to a very funny Jean Paul Gaultier ad! :D 

Metropolis programme, 1927

I'm so excited that the theme for the Helsinki Burlesque Festival 2013 is "Burlesqopolis"! Our dance group is performing there too! Can't wait! :)

Cool pics of Helsinki today and how it used to look about 100 years ago

My friend showed me these photos of Helsinki. It's fun (sometimes sad when there has been some beautiful buildings torn down) to see how it used to look where i live. I found two pics from my naigbourhood.
