golden love


Notice anything new among my daily essential things?

Huomaatteko mitään uutta mun tärkeiden laukussa aina kulkevien juttujen joukossa?


Yes – the new golden iPhone 5S! Since my old phone got stolen (in the same stupid mess when I got the knock out drops) and it seems like I’m not getting it back, I knew I had to have this. This is so pretty it takes away a little bit of the pain of losing all my old phone pictures and contacts and all. It’s so weird how big part of your life is in a little thing called cellphone!

Kyllä – se kultainen uusi iPhone 5S! Kun vanha puhelimeni varastettiin (samassa syssyssä kun sain ne tyrmäystipat viikonloppuna) eikä merkkejä sen paluusta kuulunut, tiesin että nyt on uuden iPhonen aika. Tämä on niin nätti, että vähän jopa lievittää sitä valtavaa tuskaa, joka vanhojen kännykkäkuvien ja kontaktien ja kaiken menettämisestä aiheutuu… Miten melkein koko elämä voi olla tallennettuna puhelimeen!



The golden color is even a little bit christmas-y, isn’t it? Haha yes I’ve really started to wait for Christmas already!

Kultainen väri on jo aika jouluinenkin, eikö? Haha jepjep, en suinkaan odota jo joulua.




What do you think of my new phone? Would you have chosen the same color, or safer silver or black? Oh and tips needed: what is the best app for iPhone in editing pictures, for example for Instagram? I don’t even remember what programs I used in my Samsung… Thank you already :) I feel like a kid playing with my new phone now all the time!

Mitäs pidätte? Olisitteko valinneet saman kultaisen, vai jomman kumman niistä turvallisemmista väreistä, hopean tai mustan? Ja hei jos jollain on vinkkiä parhaaseen kuvien muokkausohjelmaan iPhonelle, niin kertokaahan!

    try picfx for editing :)

  2. Angelica says:

    I love the photos, gold iphone looks amazing! I think I will need to upgrade my white iphone ;D

  3. Natali says:

    Great phone, I would love to get the same one, it looks so chic, much more than regular black or white one!


  4. Laura says:

    psst! Ei ne sun kuvat ja kontaktit ole mihinkään hävinny, vaikka puhelin lähtikin. iTunes kysyy “do you want to restore from iPhone5 (tai mikä sun puhelin nyt olikaan)” ja lataa kuvat ja osotteet uuteen puhelimeen. Olennaista vaan on se milloin viimeksi olit yhdistäny edellisen puhelimen läppäriin… Ja ihana on kyllä tuo uusin Iphone, onnea vain sen johdosta!

  5. Amna says:

    I like Mirrorgram and Whitegram they are not especially for editing but real good Instagram effects! :D

  6. Anna says:

    Haha I know how you feel, I got my phone replaced a few weeks ago as my home button didn’t work correct. :)

    The best pictures editing apps are camera + and pixlromatic if you ask me :) and I think the last one you used to have before as well. :)

    I’m so jealous, about the gold one. I’m getting that for myself too in a few months.

    Oh and where’s your cute bracelet from?

  7. Stefany says:

    Love the color of your new phone. I have the iPhone 5 in black and probably would have went for black again if I had the iPhone 5s. Anyway, where is the key pouche from? :)
    Great editing apps are PicFx or Afterlight but they cost a little. It’s totally worth it tho! xx

  8. Fabiola says:

    VSCO Cam is the best editing app for the iPhone :) !!

  9. Agag says:

    Why dont you use iCloud, so that you wont loose your pictures next time? Its realny good to know that you can always restore your pictures and contacts if something bad happens to your iphone:)
    Btw. I love the golden one! I would like to have this one :)

  10. cococherry says:

    I got myself the black one when the iPhone 5 first came out. Right now I’ve started thinking that the white one is so nice and now that the white/golden came out I love it even more. But well, no new phone for me, not yet :) But I suggest you to try Picfx and Snapseed. I use Snapseed on my iPad but I think it comes for iPhone as well. They are both great apps for photos. And let’s not forget VSCOcam – that’s great too and FREE :) have fun with your new phone!

  11. Romina says:

    So in love with the new apple design!


  12. katerina says:

    definetly vsco cam! love your blog xxx

  13. Monica says:

    I can’t believe your old phone got stolen! But, I have to say… the gold iPhone is SO pretty! I would have picked gold, too. I like how it matches many of the items in the pictures – gold is so pretty!
    As for editing software, try Afterlight or VSCOcam! They’re two of my favorites and the effects are gorgeous.


  14. Camilla says:

    For editting pitctures the best ones used for instagram are these: VSCO Cam, Afterlight and Squaready. There’s a bunch more, this girl > thingsyouremember.blogg.se gives nice tips and her photos are great. Also, if you like to change the icons on your iPhone, you can download Cocoppa. There’s plenty of cute icons for all your apps!
    Good to see you with an iPhone again. It fits you better and the golden it’s just perfect for ya.


  15. Noush says:

    I love it but it’s so expensive, I don’t think it deserve this price.

  16. Juliette says:

    I’m so sorry about your phone and what happened to you.. I hope you are ok now.
    I always prefer Samsung but this is very beautiful too. And of course I would choose also the golden one.
    Enjoy it!

  17. Renata says:

    Golden Iphone is amazing, Classic yet modern. Good choice

  18. At least you replaced it with the new iPhone! It’s so pretty, as is everything else in the photos.

  19. Sasa says:

    Golden iPhone is beautiful! The best app is after light:-)

  20. emilia says:

    Kuinka sulla on varaa ostaa aina uusin malli joka puhelimesta? eihän sitä ole edes pitkä kun päätit iphone 4:n tilalle ostaa iphone 5 sitten sulla olikin samsung galaxy s4 ja nyt jo ipone 5s.. kuinka voi olla rahaa ostaa sinänsä pienen ajan sisällä kolme uusinta mallia olevaa puhelinta?:o ja miksi silloin edes vaihdoit iphone 5:n samsungiin?

  21. Sara says:

    I’ve been wanting this gold iPhone from the moment it was launched! It is so beautiful. I’ll just pray that I get it for Christmas right ;-)
    It still sucks what happened to you though. I cannot imagine why people do such things to others, it really frightens me.

    And for apps, Aviary also has some nice features and effects.

  22. Kate says:

    You should definitely download Camera+, VSCO cam and PicLab. These apps can do miracles with pictures!

  23. Anna-Marie says:

    really looking forward to getting golden one too. <33

  24. Silvie Vaculčíková says:

    So Perfect!


  25. Sonja says:

    Marianna – can you do an updated “essential things” post for your purse? :)

  26. iik says:

    mistä löysit ton?! tuntuu että ne on joka kaupasta loppu, vaikka olen koittanut kytätä niitä jo viime viikon alusta, ja sinä kuitenkin olet omasi ostanut vasta viikonlopun tyrmäystippa tapauksen jälkeen?!

  27. Dannielle says:

    I really like PicTapGo as you can change how much of the filter you actually want to use and layer them on top of each other, plus you can then upload the full size picture to instagram or choose a cropped version. The beautiful mess app is lovely to play with text and doodles though :)

  28. I use snapseed to edit my pictures :)

  29. elena says:

    I would’ve gotten the gold one too!


  32. Katerina says:

    Hello dear Marianna,
    After using my Iphone for 4 months I found pretty nice apps for making my pics beautiful.
    I would like to share with you :)
    1) My fav one is Squaready. It will help you not to crop your photo. I love it!
    2) VSCOcam. It has amazing effects. Really it does.
    3) Retrica. It is free and it’s nice. I mean you can look yourself with effect in the moment of making photo. I guess I am bad in explanations. But at least try, maybe you will like it. In this app I like B&W effects.
    4) Tadaa 3D will help you to make your pics look like 3D photo. :) interesting indeed.!
    4) TimerCam. Sometimes we don’t have friend near and we need to make a photo. This app will do it.
    5) Reflection. Great app too. It makes double you :D eh look it, many bloggers use it…

  39. I am really waiting Christmas as well :)
    I have been eyeing this gold iPhone ever since it came out, but it sucks how the gold one is so much more expensive than the silver and black :/

  40. Alicia says:

    I would take the gold one too it’s so pretty and classy and all. By the way you are not the only one who’s waiting for christmas to come…. ;)

    I mainly use VSCO cam for editing my pictures, apart from IG basics of course :).
    Golden iPhone is simly stunning, no doubts about that! Enjoy it :)!


  48. Good choice for the iPhone, I would have chosen exactly the same color, it looks so chic in gold!

  49. Love all the gold! I wish I could get a gold iPhone, but I feel as if I probably would get sick of it. I love gold, but the majority of things I own (jewlery etc) are silver.

    My favorite/most used editing apps are:

    -Beautiful Mess

    Take care

  84. Janine says:

  85. jasminvirtanen says:

    Oi että toi 5S on ihanan värinen ! Hieman harmittaa, että kerkesin jo ostaa syksyn alussa iPhone 5 :)

  86. valerie says:

    very pretty! now I have also started planning to buy golden iphone s5!


  87. Anett says:

    Golden iPhone is very amazing! By the way I started to wait for Christmas too :-).

  88. It is beautiful! And yes, very Christmas time :D

    Love, Maria

  89. ali says:

    one of the best photo apps i have found is Aiary. It has amazing options and they always bring out new filters that are pretty cheap.
    Cant wait to upgrade my iPhone 5 to the 5s. An LOVE the gold.

  90. Looks so simple and pretty <3~ now I feel like getting a clear case too c_c


  91. Callie says:

    camera+ all the way!

  92. Hanna says:

    Aivan pakko kysyä että mistä olet kaunokaisesilöytänyt, koska minäkin etsin omaani kuin haukka ja iPhone 5s juurikin kultaisena tuntuu olevan kaikkialta loppunut

  93. Rafaela says:

    the best apps EVER to edit pictures on iPhone are vsco cam and afterlight! trust me! :)

  94. Nadine says:

    You should try PicsArt, it´s free and has nice bokeh designs. :)

  95. Inês says:

    Hey Marianna,

    you should backup your iPhone data more often. In case you change iPhones you can restore everything, without losing any data (at least, no data since the last backup date :p)


  96. Melina says:

    I wish I had the 5S in gold … and btw I think the best editing program is picfx … it hast such nice filters :-)

  97. Noora says:

    Todella siisti!:)
