ride the heatwave.

now that the weather is breaking records daily, i have been hiding within the cool privacy of my home and underneath one of the large trees of my nearby oasis where the wind hits just perfectly. it is my last week of work before holiday, but i met my deadlines last week and found myself lolling without major expectations from anyone. i vaguely recall this feeling from school (or was it university – it's been ages, you know) and i feel i traveled universes back in history.

last week's highlights were:

1. the monsoon storm that hit us, had people swimming in the street and yours truly splashing away to get some nepalese dinner after a job well done. it was over and done with right when i got back home. beautiful.

summer parka by makia, tee by roisin murphy for fashion against aids for h&m, sweats by monki, boots by nokian.

2. a long hot night at tervasaari, toasting and playing basketball at a friend's bday picnic. happy bday, h!

thermochromatic tee by american apparel, denim shorts by current/elliott, shades by marc jacobs, bag by marc by marc jacobs, necklace from spitalfields market, bracelets by bless and h&m men, watch by casio.

3. picnic that reoccured for several consecutive days underneath the same large tree. friends lingered for some hours, left and returned the next day, dogs helped to read the newspapers, everyone enjoyed the sun...

tank by monki, jorma enjoying the daily news, friends. the shots are captured with random hipstamatic settings – just like it felt. random.

4. cocktails at tiki bar.

5. this song by the memory tapes playing in my ipod, finding the video sunday night and realizing that it perfectly captures the hot hipstamatic nights we've enjoyed.

i'm in love with you, little sister
we ride home in the night
while under our feet, the rain paints the street with the stars
passing cars with light trails behind them
we could follow them on
giving this town is wearing me down
lets take off
no one would know that we've gone

how have you adjusted to the heat surpassing the previous high each day?

Miten ihanan kesäisiä kuvia!!!

Mä olen kanssa todella nauttinut hellekeleistä. Harmittaa vaan kovasti kun emme kerinneet tavata kun viime la olin Hesassa! (Multa jäi kiireen takia monta muutakin juttua sillä reissulla tekemättä ja ihmisiä näkemättä vaikka kovin kivaa olikin. Miten mun Hesan-reissut voikin olla sellaista kaaosta nykyään???) Mutta ensi kerralla sitten! Odotan edelleen nakkitreffejä sun kanssa! :)

anna, kiitos, tällä hetkellä ei oikein muuta kuin tuokiokuvausta ja nauttimista hetkistä ole mielessä... aivot sulavat tässä kuumuudessa.

harmi tosiaan, ettei nähty, mutta ensi kerralla sitten. mun turun reissut ovat ihan vastaavaa kaaosta – sitä se vain on.
