eventually

It was one of them nights. I will post once I sober up. How sad that sounds... But no, it was a good night! Now is just not the right time to post on it. Just had to say quickly, went to see Cirque Dracula dress rehearsal, will write more about it later (or earlier as it is quite late) but just had to say I'm in love with a performer, once again... he is amazing. Anyone who has ever seen him will have to agree. Wine at my place after the show, plenty of people, diverse people, good times!

Lets go!

The vacation is starting to find its pace. My social-calender is starting to fill up fast enough for me to already begin feeling a bit anxious over lack of time!!

I've been hosting friends and relatives since the 12th of this month, and will continue doing so until the end of the month. With this up-coming weekend being the only exception since I won't be at home myself.

Went to see the musical version of "Legally Blond" at a local theatre on Saturday. It was ok. Easy to digest entertainment. Not much to say about it really. Got free tickets from a friend who works as one of the musicians in it so I figured it is worth checking out.

Midsummer is coming up! And again we are packing to head out to the islands. This year there are 12 of us going. It will surely be fantastic. Meeting up with one of the people going tomorrow since we landed the very responsible task of planning the menu for the entire weekend, for 12 people!! It is a challenge for sure... We will manage though.

More to come.

I'm just waiting for something to happen...

If I take you to my place will you be mine?

Ah, some times being in one place is very much under-rated. I do love travelling, but right now, I'm loving just being here!!

Went to dinner on Saturday in a small restaurant here. My favorite restaurant in this town, not one of those stupid chains you have everywhere. We ended up being the last customers there so the owner and the workers joined us. Turned out we all had a lot in common so they ended up serving us wine after closing hours. I lost count, don't know how many glasses it was, although one ended up on my dress, big thanks to my friend for that! At the end of the night, after a quick round to the bars, we ended up at the owner's place at an afterparty. He cooked some really spicy pasta for us!

Sunday a very good friend came over from Sweden. Spent a great few days with her. Saw "Hannah" at the movies, which was surprisingly good! Also saw the Biennale at the modern arts museum. It was ok. Not more, not less. Did like Ana García-Pineda's work though! Go see it.


Last night some friends treated us to a dinner at Smör. Yummy.

So, there was a short summary of the last days. Time again to focus on the present. Tomorrow farewell drinks at Pinella with a friend. Other than that...nothing. Hoping for some sunny skies!

Plenty to write about, but since the "My Place-Inn" has opened for the summer it is hard to find the time. About to go drop off a friend at the airport shortly, have another one arriving tomorrow, then my father on Sunday, possibly another friend on Wednesday and then one on Thursday. Then I'm out for midsummer, the islands are calling once again.

But later today I'll try to find time for a quick post about recent activities.

Anti-posing just doesn't do it for me

Ok, I know I've bitched about it before, but seriously, Finnish fashion blogs (maybe the same goes for fashion blogs elsewhere, but I do not know) are ALL THE SAME!

All the girls who write them, though all are pretty, look the same. They pose the same way. It's the anti-pose that annoys me the most, you know the one, "oh, this is just me standing here gazing at my shoes, shifting my weight from one foot to the other totally oblivious to the fact that somebody is taking my picture".

Gina Tricot, H&M, and Zara is all they wear. Maybe some Vero Moda as well. And the texts are boring, I don't understand who spends time reading them. (Of course my writing is a thousand times more interesting and inspiring.)

Don't know what I'm talking about? Check these out:
just to name a few...scroll through and check out the posing, always the same. I've been trying to find an inspiring fashion blog in Finnish, one that inspires with both text and pictures...but I'm starting to lose hope. Only one I occasionally enjoy reading is White Trash Disease.

Don't know why I bother bitching about these. Who cares. Well, at least I won't be making friends here. I don't know, I just think it would be more interesting if more people had more individual style instead of just being clones of the same style. BORING.

There.

Good night now.

Bitter-sweet

Back home. For a day. Then one week in Helsinki.

Tuscany turned out to be even better than I could have ever imagined. Great company, watching a field full of fireflies in the dark, midnight swims in the pool, and all that wine.
And sunshine.
