Midsummer Cabin Trip

I wanted to share a few pictures from my midsummer weekend’s trip to a friend’s cabin: here in Finland, midsummer is usually a big celebration and we decided to celebrate by taking a trip with friends. The weather has been quite bad for a while now but we didn’t let that stop us and instead packed up food and clothes and ended up spending a long weekend by the sea.

The radiators weren’t working so we mostly relied on a fire to keep us warm, which actually made it quite nice and cozy.

Barbecuing was obviously something we had to do and same went for the sauna. Somehow the rain and wind didn’t seem as bad after the hot sauna and a steak with corn and salad.

How has everyone else’s vacation gone so far? I’m making the most out of these little weekend trips and hangouts with friends in the midst of my summer work.

Cruisin’ on a Restaurant Boat

Doris

We were celebrating my boyfriend’s mom’s birthday a few days ago and she works on this lovely restaurant boat called m/s Doris so naturally we had the celebration there. I’ve had the privilege to eat there a few times before and they have probably the best foods I have ever tasted. This time I had the most amazing and creamy chanterelle soup for starters, then I chose the salmon with lobster sauce as the main course, and we had an incredible chocolate cake as dessert.

The boat does a cruise around the main islands on the coast of Helsinki, and even though it was raining, it was really lovely seeing all the old buildings and islands. It’s rare to be able to see the place you live in new ways, because it’s an everyday experience for you – but this cruise always makes me appreciate Helsinki a bit more.

There’s more information on the boat and the services on the company’s website.

Spring Inspiration

Today was the first day I got to switch to my Spring coat and enjoy the sunshine so I thought it’d be the perfect time to post my Spring inspiration board! Just look at those colors!!

Decorating the Walls

I love to have paintings, collages and other artwork on the walls of my home. We have a big apartment considering that we’re just students and I didn’t like the huge white walls that looked really empty even after setting up all the furniture. So now we have a few paintings, posters and other things up but I’m always on the lookout for more. Here’s a little collection of what we currently have on display brightening up the place:

We like to have different “ethnic” things on the walls like Indonesian masks (gotten from a trip when we visited Ari’s family), bright-colored paintings and, of course, I need to have my Emma Watson posters and art collages. Right now I’m thinking of making more of my own art to get a very personal look for our apartment.

What do you like to decorate your walls with? And more importantly, any tips on where to get great artwork with student prices? ^^

My Travels Around the World: Italy

I don’t know if you remember but I absolutely love traveling. As I was cleaning my files on my computer I also dug up a few old pictures from my trip to Italy. I miss it so much – I hope I get to go there again one day!
