Pastis is the anise flavoured spirit and aperitif from France, typically containing up to 45% alcohol by the volume and 100 gr of sugar per litre. This is the mini task I gave to myself upon visiting Pastis last weekend for brunch – to check out the meaning of word/ name “Pastis”. I saw beautiful, empty bottles labeled Pastis by the big restaurant’s windows and that’s when the curiosity about the name started.
Being of a different kind… Let me tell you, not an easy path to follow. Ever since my birth, I was of a different kind and it took me a loooong time to recognise and then accept this. While I always knew deep down inside who I am, what I feel, think and what I want, I had hard times accepting the fact that being of a different kind means walking many different roads often alone than with a company.
Good morning dear readers! How are you? Are you happy that the last weekend of August is here? Can you believe that the Summer is pretty much over and that we’re only 2 months away from Halloween? How crazy is that!?! Yep, time flies and my calendar filled up means that everybody/ everything is back in the business and it’s time to start making some plans for the final months of this year.
Tacos for lunch?! Count me in! Ever since living in LA, I got so hooked on Mexican food and there, we had plenty of options on every corner. My favourite ones ended up being Antonio’s on Merlose Blvd and Pink Taco on Sunset Blvd. Here in Helsinki, we’ve been having more and more options to eat some good Mexican food too, some of the favourites being Pueblo, Chalupa and Cholo.
Today, I wanted to share one very simple, but delicious recipe for tacos which you can easily prepare at home too. It’s also not time consuming, so you’ll have your lunch ready in max. 30 mins from the moment you start prepping it.
I belive that we were all born as a loving human beings. That love was installed in our “factory settings” and loving something or somebody should come easily and naturally to us… Yet, we use “love” so easily and often, we give it to the wrong people and take it from the right people, we complicate it when it shouldn’t be complicated and we leave it hanging when it should be cared for. That is what I call tainted love.
Hello my dear readers, 5 for Friday post is here! I’ve been dwelling on should I, or should I not write today’s post but then I was like: “What the heck?!” and I’ve decided to do it. I didn’t have a good week… It was actually one of the crappiest ones and bad weather didn’t help the mood. I always want to and try to inspire and bring only good and positive vibes to my blog and Instagram feed, but sometimes… Sometimes, I’m just a human, I hurt, I don’t feel good and from time to time, I think that it’s ok to say it out loud and call it a day. Or week.
Funny fact about me: I used to be into interior decor for many years and I was so serious about it that I wanted to study it. That was up until the moment I have realised that a lot of “counting & calculating”, meaning mathematics was involved in those studies, so I gave up on the idea of studying interior decor. Even though I never ended up being a professional at this, I did always kept my fire and interest burning for decorating and re-organising spaces, namely my own home(s).
Good Monday morning everybody! I’m happy to start a new week presenting you my new Zaful dress. I’ve been approached by kind people at Zaful whom wanted me to choose a piece of clothing and as soon as I saw this dress, I knew that I wanted to have it. It’s so “me” since I’m a big sucker for anything feminine and floral.
Sooner than I was ready for it to come, but Friday is here and I’ve decided to post my “5 for Friday” post. I’m sharing with you 5 highlights/ things I’m thankful for this week and a small roundup of my favourite photos from my Instagram feed. If you’re interested to follow my daily adventures, please check out my account here.
Good Wednesday everybody! I felt like writing just a “chit-chat” kind of post and also present you my love for these espadrilles. I have literally spent half of my Summer in them, they’re so comfy and I can combine them with almost anything in my closet. If you haven’t, I can wholeheartedly suggest you to invest in a pair of good espadrilles.
