I think tonight is gonna be a good night! See you on the dance floor.

walks and talks.

Me and my sister Julia love going for long walks. Really long walks. We've got so much to talk about always, which I love. If you are out walking in Bath, stop by the botanical garden. It's so beautiful this time of the year.

Little sister.

My sister is here and i'm loving every minute!
We've already done so much fun. Simple things. We eat, drink, take long walks, shop, laugh, eat some more food and hang out with friends.
I hope you all are having a fantastic weekend! .... (the pics in this post are from The cosy club in Bath. Nice place!)

I just wanted it.

Waitrose chocolate gateau brownie. Gone. Just like that.

right now.

What are you up to? I'm blogging, reading magazines and sunbathing while watching the laundry dry. All sort of at the same time. Happy Tuesday!

My boyfriend, the horse whisperer.

sunny seaside.

Yesterday we spent an amazing afternoon by the seaside. Felt like summer is back on again. We always visit the same beach in Mwnt. A little hidden gem.


Wales is great, having a fantastic time here, enjoying some time away from Bath which is just what I needed.
Can't help thinking about all the horrible stuff going on in Norway. I know I've got quite a few readers in Norway, and I hope all your loved ones are safe and well. Lots of Love. x

weekend away.

Arrived last night in Pembrokeshire, Wales. We are staying with my boyfriend's family for the weekend. Some sun, nature and relaxation.

and then I came across this photo! Henrik. A fantastic man, a great old friend, a creative soul, an ex boyfriend and abit of a crazy person. I wonder what he is up to nowadays. I do sometimes wonder that about ex boyfriends, what they're up to.

Pics from old days.

Going through old photos from boxes I haven't seen in years. I'm gonna be good and start framing old pictures that I've taken over the years. And then I found these. From old backpacking days. Beautiful memories from amazing places. They almost look like postcards! The picture with the jetty is taken in Caye Caulker, Belize. The other one in Tulum Mexico.

This morning's outfit. Until the rain totally soaked me and had to change.
This weather......come on. It's not even fun anymore.

Found this picture on my laptop. Me on the livingroom sofa. You might have noticed that I like Marimekko. I've always liked Marimekko's design. Maybe because I grew up with it. Fabrics, cushions, cups, cutlery and bathrobes, my childhood home was invaded with Finnish things. Or maybe I just like it because my mum is Finnish, and in our family we love everything and everyone that comes from Finland. Think it's a combination of both.

Fuel up.

Working from home and eating Italian biscotti. Pretty good day.

just like a ballerina.

When I was in Sweden last week I found a box at home with my old ballet shoes. I danced ballet from the age of 3 to 15 i think it was. I don't know why my mum didn't throw them away? they're all pretty dirty and worn out. But now I'm quite glad she didn't. I think i'm gonna do something with them. Make them into art in some form. Even though they're not as nice as my latest pair, the only ones I've kept from that time (these)... I love them all. The tiny ones from when I was the shy little three year old that loved her pink tutu skirt more than the dancing to the more dirtier pairs when I was the angry teenager but a passionate dancer.

bare legs in the rain.

Monday. A new summer week and the rain continues..
Brogues: urban outfitters
socks: topshop

one day...

I will get a place like this. A run down little house to fix up, just the way I like it, a place that is completely me. Creating a inspiring, creative little den, with only the bare essentials. A place to relax, read books all day, paint and listen to all sorts of music as loud as I like all night until the early morning. Take morning, afternoon and evening dips in the lake. And maybe build a little sauna by the jetty. And maybe get a little rowing boat and learn how to fish properly. Watch the sunset over the lake with a glass of wine in the evening. Grow some vegetables and wild strawberries. Invite all the people that I love.
Yes, that's what i'm gonna do.

lazy Sunday

Watching a movie and eating pizza. The rain is pouring outside. It's good i'm not out there. In the rain.

eighth grade.

Found an old class photo from eighth grade I think it was. I was 13 or 14. Can you see me? too cool for school right..
Nice that we all were wearing that shiny pale lipstick. We all thought we looked pretty hot. I also remember the white leggings I was wearing in that photo, they were white and see through. Thought it looked quite nice when you could see my thongs showing..nice.

putting on my makeup and thinking about tonight.


Friday night. Long week. You've just watched a silly comedy in bed. One person falls asleep...the other one can't. Little bored and restless, and very much awake. What to do at 00.05am?

saturday rain.

It's Saturday. And heavy rain. But i'm gonna wear shorts. All day, in the rain. Summer is too short to be wearing jeans.

this song I can't get out of my head... it played about every twenty minutes on the Swedish radio. Veronica Maggio, another great Swedish talent. In fact she is pretty brilliant.

Last Saturday in Sweden. I attended a great name party, or naming ceremony (a non religious baptism you know) for Stella. A beautiful day with lots of lovely people, sunshine, kids running around in the garden, lots of laughter, amazing homebaked cakes and a speech/presentation from Stella's mum and dad explaining why they chose the name Stella.
A perfect day and a perfect way to celebrate the lovely little girl.
