Burgundy & Ti Sento Milano

Helsinki, 8 degrees



Many individuals have, like uncut diamonds, shining qualities beneath a rough exterior.

The other day I participated in a raffle on one of my favorite Finnish blogs named Curiouser & Curiouser, and well, what do you know - I won! The stunning prize was a €200 gift card for Ti Sento Milano's jewelry! You can imagine my joy! One of the reasons why I won was my jewelry styling for an outfit consisting of an animal print dress for the upcoming Christmas party season. This is how I styled it!

Hiljattain osallistuin korukilpailuun, joka oli tunntetun Curiouser & Curiouser -blogin järjestämä. Ja voitteko uskoa - minä voitin! Palkintona oli 200€:n Ti Sento Milanon korulahjakortti! Yksi kilpailun tehtävistä oli stailata mekkoasukokonaisuus pikkujouluihin sopivaksi kahdella korulla ja minun stailaus näytti tältä!

Another part of the raffle was to state reasons why I should win the jewelry gift card. My reasons were that I wear jewelry every day; my day-to-day look always includes earrings and bracelets. I get energy from my bracelets because I have received them for people I cherish and through the jewelry those people are with me all the time. When I'm nervous, I tend to touch my bracelets because they comfort me. Because I've encountered difficulties this year (among others the death of my father), but made it through the difficulties, and have now started my master studies on the side of working, I would like to reward myself for a job well done.

Kilpailun toinen tehtävä oli perustella miksi palkinto menisi itselleen. Tässä perusteluni: 
”Itselleni korut ovat tärkeässä roolissa, rannekoruja ja korvakoruja käytän päivittäin. Voi kuulostaa hassulta, mutta saan energiaa rannekoruistani, koska olen ne saanut tärkeiltä ihmisiltä, joten korujen kautta nämä ihmiset ovat mukanani koko ajan. Kun olen hermostunut, huomaan myös koskettelevani näitä rannekoruja koska tuovat lohtua. Koska olen läpikäynyt vaikeita asioita tänä vuonna (mm. isäni kuoleman), mutta voin tällä hetkellä hyvin ja olen aloittanut töiden ohella maisteriopinnot nyt syksyllä, haluaisin palkita itseni hyvästä työstä ja tsemppauksesta. Jos saisin itse valita korun, se voisi olla lahja itselleni jotta voisin saada samanlaista tukea ja turvaa itseltäni ja olisin entistä itsenäisempi. Palkitisin itseäni kauniilla klassisella rannerenkaalla.”


And what did I get for myself? I chose some jewelry in rose gold, since I didn't own anything in this gold variation. I chose a pair of stunning rose gold earrings and a beautiful bracelet with black and rose gold color! I must say that I fell in love with Ti Sento Milano's jewelry while choosing some for me because it reminds me of the country I love - Italy! On the label's website there's a great video that showcases what the jewelry is all about - la bella vita - the beautiful life! Have a look, and you'll see what I mean!

Ja mitäkö hankin itselleni? Valitsin ruusukullan värisiä koruja koska minulla ei sellaisia ollut ollenkaan entuudestaan. Valitsin kauniin ruusukullan värisen korvakoruparin ja ihanan ruusukullan ja mustan värisen rannekorun! Rakastuin Ti Sento Milanon koruihin samalla kun valitsin itselleni sopivia koruja koska korut muistuttivat minua Italiasta, jossa olen asunut pari vuotta. Tuotemerkin sivulta löytyykin aivan ihana video, joka kuvastaa Ti Sento Milanon kaunista korumaailmaa! Ei ihme, että merkin uuden malliston nimi on La Bella Vita - kaunis elämä. Video löytyy tästä alta - nauti!




I wore the jewelry today with my new Yen of London (an in-house brand of New World Fashion Group) burgundy dress that has leather effects. What do you think?

Tänään stailasin itseni koruja varten pukeutumalla Yen of Londonin viininpunaiseen mekkoon, jossa on nahkatehosteita. Mitäs tykkäät?


How do you feel about leather effects - are they a part of your fall wardrobe? What kind of jewelry do you like? Finally, I would like to still give a shout-out to Curisouser & Curiouser's Noora - thank you for this wonderful motivation kick this fall!

Mitä mieltä olet nahkatehosteita - ovatko ne osa vaatekaappiasi? Millaisista koruista sinä pidät? Viimeisenä, muttei vähäisimpänä haluan kiittää Curiouser & Curiouserin Nooraa - kiitos tästä upeasta syyspiristyksestä!

  2. wow, congrats! that's one crazy expensive gift ;) I especially like the bracelet but me and delicate bracelets don't go together at all. not long ago I lost one of my beautiful silver bracelets (and I have lost several before) :( anyway, when it comes to your dress then of course I like it! burgundy is one of the coolest colours and leather accents are great too!
    oh and I'm glad you liked my post about Valmiera. I hope you can go there one day and see it by yourself :)
