Current favorites and recommendations

personal,25 August 2016


I love gold. Always have. Especially thinner than thin chains around my neck and golden details in my interior. Last week I spray painted some pots and I can highly recommend it. Such an easy and fun way to pimp up small jars and plates for jewelry, candles, fresh herbs etc. (I bought my spray can from K-rauta)


As a person who basically got rid of all my “regular” sheets after purchasing my first set in linen, I am rather surprised for saying this: These sheets are the best sheets I’ve ever slept in. Hotel sheet feeling to the max.


Since I don’t really love any kind of meat and know how much the meat industry stresses our earth I find myself choosing vegetarian options more frequently. In all their simplicity the bolt smoothie and sir pesto sandwich are so delicious, even though very simple to make at home.


While in high school I used to iron my jeans every morning. I still get annoyed with wrinkly clothes, but rarely have the energy or time (aka interest) to iron, therefore my shirts and silky pieces rarely get worn. I finally bough myself a hand steamer and my hopes are high!


Pink is my new favorite color. Or actually it’s always been, but now I’m loving more or less everything in soft pink. I want to go through life feeling like a ballerina. I think my daughter inspired me, since she wants to wear, eat, play and sleep in pink, and pink only.

Glada Vappen! This day couldn’t get any better. Every week we eagerly wait for Saturday to come. That means a new episode of my daughters favorite cartoon. We park ourselves in the living room, eat breakfast and drink coffee together, while we wait for it to begin. When it finally comes on she starts by pointing out which one of the characters she and the rest of the family are. The excitement is beyond huge.

Today we’ll walk around town, buy balloons for our children and later it’s time to kick off the barbecue season at my mom’s. Thank Goodness for holiday celebrations. I find the biggest joy in celebrating with my kiddo’s. Vappu has always been my cup of tea. Who wouldn’t like wearing crazy costumes, do pranks, get high on sugar and buy a load of unnecessary stuff? Once a child always a child.
