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!

vault sandals

Some sharp-eyed readers might have noticed the new shoes in the previous post, but it's okay even if you didn't, because here's some better pictures of them!

I ordered these Vault platform sandals from Unif some time ago and finally got them after agonizing 3 and half weeks long wait. Ugh, their shipping used to take maximum 5 days so I was okay with paying $20 for it. Now they have two shipping options. The cheaper one (which I used) is $18 and the express shipping is quite salty $35. Turns out the pricey express shipping is the same they had before for $20 and the cheaper one takes waayy longer than the promised 1-2 weeks. Boohoo, Unif, why are you doing this to me.

Anyway, the shoes are made of leather, they look pretty rad and.... they're giving me 3 blisters on BOTH feet. I'm currently trying to break them in by wearing band-aids over the spots where I can feel the blisters are most likely to form and walk short distances with them. The leather should give in, but I have no idea how long it will take before they'll be comfy to wear.... If you have any tips, they're more than welcome!

Also, they jingle quite a lot when walking, so sneaking around is pretty much impossible lol.

Damn my bare legs look ugly in these close-ups.

Ahoy! Seems like another cool online store has opened it's interactive doors in Finland recently.'s clothing are inspired by Harajuku, future and the internet which is a pretty cool combo, don't you think? And it's definitely something Finland hasn't had before.

I got to pick some of my favourite items from their store and these are the two outfits I put together using those items! Which one do you prefer? I love mesh things so I went wild and picked both, their mesh bomber and the mesh dress haha. I love them. The bomber especially is super cool.

But you know what's even better? Corm actually has a pop-up store in Helsinki at the moment! I went to check it out last week and it was nice to see all the clothes in person and meet the lovely staff who run the store. So if you have time, do check it out! The store can be found at Unioninkatu 25 until the next Sunday.

Here's some pics I took when I visited the store ↓↓↓

Cute, right?! But even if you can't make it to the store this week, no worries! I actually have a discount code for you to make your shopping a bit easier. They currently ship to Sweden, Norway, Denmark, France and the UK besides Finland.

the code expires on 26/07/2015 midnight

If you like their stuff, don't forget to follow Corm on Facebook and Instagram

new iphone + case

My old iPhone 4S had been having some problems for a long time now (freezing, running out of battery super fast, broken sleep/wake button), so I finally had had enough and went to get myself a new iPhone 6.

I picked the 16GB version in white x gold since that's my favourite color combo anyway and I probably won't need 64GB memory because I have an iPod for all my music. I had 32GB in my previous phone which would've been the best option, but seems like that isn't available in the newest model? I wonder why.

Anyway, getting a new phone means you have a permission to buy new pretty cases for it! I bought this super pretty Marc by Marc Jacobs case for my iPhone from SHOPBOP (here) and I must say their shipping was probably the fastest ever! It took only 3 days to arrive, so I was very happy about that.

I was first thinking about getting a case from Joyrich, but after I noticed their shipping would cost as much as the case itself, I decided to postpone my plans and wait till I can visit their store in Tokyo.

What's your favourite places to buy phone cases from?
