Things I like October

The best nail polish by far, is IsaDora’s. The wonder nail series is so durable and the wide brush makes it super easy to apply.

Picture proof. Here are my nails after four days of washing dishes, cleaning the apartment, baking and overall not paying much attention to the fact that I was wearing nail polish.

And if you want to try a new color you’ve seen some trend guru wear online, you just go to the store and what do you know, IsaDora has the perfect shade in stock.

Oh, and if you want the effect to last a bit longer it is of course good to cut your nails before applying the polish. Short nails are not as likely to get in the way…

I’m in love with all the birthday presents I got.

I bought this tablecloth from Marimekko (now I just need to get some new curtains…) and I got the most beautiful of blankets from my bible group.

Aalto and a new sign for my bathroom.

And this song.

iPhone love

I just realized I’ve spent close to 80 euros on iPhone gadgets. Not the actual phone but accessories. And I’m starting to see the greatness of Apple.

This is my latest purchase, a pocket to keep my phone sweat-free when running. It made me feel like an idiot, especially when it gave me a status update every five minutes. “fif-teen-min-utes-you-have-run-three-point-seven-kilo-meters”. Thank you for letting everyone within a 100 meter radius know how fast I’m running.

Unfortunately it seemed to have added an extra kilometer to my run as it said I’d run 5.5km in 23min.

So now I’ve downloaded another app – lets see if it works better. At least it was free…

This week I realized that there are people who read blogs to learn stuff. Their blog-picks are based on the mathematical formula of their interest+writer’s wisdom=new insight. How about that!

The blogs I read I’ve chosen because 1. they have nice pictures, 2. they make me laugh and 3. no, that’s about it. Here’s a selection


Sweet, pink-loving Annika who does stop-motion videos and draws beautifully.

Bloggfrossa och mannen som blev trött

Inga bilder men ack så rolig.


Showcases the most beautiful homes


Just because Jenny Brandt’s daughter is such a cool kid.


Where were all these people hiding when I was living in the city?

Hello Tiger!

So simple yet so beautiful.

Hyperbole and a Half

Doesn’t blog that often but when she does you risk dying of laughter.

Karins konstgrepp

På delad första plats med the Bloggess. Otroligt rolig och otroligt vacker kvinna.


The Finn-Swede queen of blogging. (according to me that is)


Makes me feel calm – and that’s even though the woman has three sons!




Followed for 4 years now. Strange how involved you get in someone’s life even though you don’t know them. When she got dumped by her boyfriend a few weeks back I really understood the 700+ comments she got.

the Bloggess

A must read! A brilliant woman who got people to shout wolverine in the subway and others to tattoo images of a metal chicken, named Beyonce,  on their legs. Beautiful on the inside and out.

the Design Ark

Another inspirational blog.

Just a small portion of the blogs I read. Hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I do!

And because I read so much, here are a couple of nice findings from today:

Lovely things

Last week was really really great. Sun, friends and adventures. Now that reality and low temperature has hit us hard it’s time to think about the things I love this week.

 You can finally buy Sour cars from Citymarket. Yes!

I’ll get 4mm needles the next time I go to get more supplies. 5mm:s are so 2010.

After Spotify told me I had to pay if I wanted to listen to a song more than 4 times I turned to grooveshark. And life is good.

Bought some swallows in Denmark and have now ruined my wall while trying to put them up. The wall was so hard that even the hardest little nail I had refused to go through it. I hammered and hammered but couldn’t get further down than through the layer of paint and plaster. I hope they won’t fall down – but at least I’ve got my bed right below so they might be safe…

Today has otherwise been very nice. Got to talk to my boss for two hours, finished my abstract for a conference in Kuopio and bought a cleanser and lotion that my colleagues’ daughters use against their acne – so maybe I’ll get rid of my teenage skin, keeping my fingers crossed.

A closeup of the Mexican icon I bought in Copenhagen.
