This morning I got to sleep in for once, I’ve been pretty tired the whole week so a few hours of extra sleep was really needed. After working out with Cat I came home and watched a few episodes of Svenska Hollywoodfruar, had coffee with sprinkles of gingerbread spice, raspberries & bananas. Now I have to pack up my stuff, we’re going to Helsinki for the weekend because Amma is in town and we wanna meet her (and of course get some blissful healing hugs!)

I had my presentation on Speciesism this morning which was a huge weight off my shoulders, after that I did some work related stuff and after that I rewarded myself and......
...bought this blender! Hello lover<3
After attending Love2Dance & Pilates I had some fresh figs. Eehm is there anything better?? I DON’T THINK SO.

Today me, Emmy, Cat, Chobi & Fellu went to The Book Café and had brunch. They had falafel patties, all kinds of dips, spreads and hummus, potato wedges, macaroni salad with capers, marinated veggies and salad, olive-foccacia, gluten-free bread etc. Best brunch in town, hands down!
Last night, me and some of my favourite girls hung out at Charlotte’s place. We made some kind of veggie curry with jasmine rice, and then we made raw chocolate balls for dessert. After a while Nici and Jussi joined us and we just sat and talked & laughed all night. These kinds of get togethers are so rare because most of us live in different places and we all have our own stuff going on so I really cherish nights like these, love you girls<3

I’m in the middle of a really stressful school period right now, my spanish exam didn’t go so well, and my next exam will be in sociology which I’m not looking forward to at all. I also don’t have much time to finish my english assignment which is due next Wednesday. I’m writing about “speciesism" and we’re going to give presentations so I wan’t to make it as good as possible since I’m extremely passionate about this certain topic. (If you haven’t already seen the movie called Speciesism then I recommend you watch it, it’s top notch!).
Anyway, even though I’m extremely stressed-out I’m still happy because my girls Emmy & Mixu are coming to Turku tomorrow!! All the more reason to do some serious researching/writing today so I can give them my undivided attention during the weekend.

Me and Cat went to the gym this morning and did a shoulder & arm workout. We’ve been working out for like a month now and it feels awesome. I’ve never been into lifting weights and stuff but it’s really starting to grow on me! After our workout we swinged by the market square and bought watermelon & bananas, -two major loves of my life. By the way I just have to mention this quickly; after going vegan, my muscle recovery is so much faster and my body heals itself in no-time! It’s really convenient being able to walk normally and not having to restrict my upcoming workouts because of muscle pains. I am going to do a vegan benefits list one of these days because trust me, there’s A LOT of them, some which may really surprise you. Now I’m going to slaughter this gorgeous thing, have a good day guys!

Today I went for brunch at Sis. Deli + Café at Pursimiehenkatu with my brothers and Vicky. In addition to the buffet you could also get a big specialty coffee & smoothie. Everything was delicious and it was really nice catching up with everyone.
...Oh no... do you know what I just realized while writing this post.. I totally forgot about the porridge bar?! I’m a real porridge lover and I’d been looking forward to it SOO much, but apparently I just forgot all about it, I mean, who does that..?? Weeell anyways.. I had a really nice sunday afternoon, and I’ll be back for that porridge for sure!

Denim shirt: Flea market @Manhattan.
On another note; today’s English exam went down the crapper haha. Luckily I know how to laugh at myself and know better not to dwell on stuff. Right now I’m having a cup of coffee and later on I’m meeting Cat at the Book Café to study.

Tonight me and a bunch of friends went out for a birthday celebration dinner to Delhi Darbar. It was a perfect night with delicious food, super cute gifts and even cuter friends. I’m so happy and thankful of all the kind words & sweet birthday wishes I’ve received today, love all you guys!!

Today’s my birthday!! For the first time I'm going to try and really celebrate myself. I’m glad and lucky to have been born & I’ve decided that I’m not just going to exist in this world - I’m going to make a difference! In London, Teal Swan wrote me something I never quite understood, she basically wrote that I’m meant to “create”. I’ve never seen myself as an artistic or creative person so I couldn’t really figure out what she meant. Last night I received one of the sweetest texts ever, saying that I don’t need to create - I AM a piece of art. That meant a lot<3 Sooo to sum up this random blogpost - Happy birthday to me!

Yesteday’s lunch at Pizzarium. If you’re in Turku, you really need to try out their vegan pizza’s. They used to make whole pizza pies but now they only sell slices. We were lucky enough to get to try out three different ones which were all equally delicious! Afterwords we bought loads of candy & other goodies and walked around a bit before heading back home. I fell asleep really early last night and today I’ve just been writing on my school assignments. Later on we’re going to Ikea again, I’m getting a new bed and I couldn’t be more excited!

I just got home from work, apparently I’m reeally good at making pizza and sandwiches..
By the way this (vegan) mud cake made by Felicia was ridiculously yummy and moist (does anyone happen to know another word for moist? All my English speaking friends HATE that word haha). Anyways gotta go, I'm meeting my mom for some shopping & lunchin' and then we’re off to our summerhouse for the weekend. Toodles!

My tattoo craving is growing by the second. It’s been over a year since my last one and that’s waaaay too long if you ask me. I miss the sound from the tattoo gun, the feeling of the needle against my skin and most of all a new piece of body art to adore and stare at. By the way if you didn’t notice; from now on I’ll be writing in English. I started writing this post in Swedish as usual but realized halfway through that pretty much every second phrase was written in English.. I always find it really difficult sticking to one language and right now this feels more natural somehow. Anyways, time to get some sleep, I have work early tomorrow morning (my alarm is set at 05.40 am..) wish me luck!

Efter att ha tränat TRX med Riina & Janni kom jag hem, städade och träffade Chobi. Sedan åkte jag på ärenden med mi mamá y papá. Jag älskar inredning och Ikea men blir samtidigt så avundsjuk på allt det fina jag inte kan ha själv. Skulle verkligen inte tacka nej till att bo som på bilderna någon vacker dag..

Något som verkligen gjorde min dag var när Nici berättade att hans mormor kollat Cowspiracy och bestämt sig för att bli vegan. Hon tyckte det var helt absurt hur människor ännu idag dricker mjölk och äter kött och fortsätter bidra till att förstöra planeten ännu mer än nödvändigt. Gammal och vis granny! Här är annars tre saker jag saknar extremt mycket just nu:
världens sötaste tjej, Nelle<3
&världens sötaste Iris (Emmy och Vicke hoppas ni inser att ni ingår i paketet haha)

Idag vaknade jag med lite stegring så jag har pretty much varit hemma hela dagen och kämpat med min engelskauppgift och hängt med Chobi en stund. Det kändes så bra att äntligen kunna tugga (med vänstra sidan) så denna middag smakade extra gott idag!
Friday, October 2, 2015
Kolla så söt roomie jag har som köpte detta till mig som en moving out/feel better present!! Det här var första gången någonsin jag fått blommor av någon (förutom konfirmationen, studenten osv) så snällt<3 Chobi tog alltså sitt pick & pack och flyttade ut någon timme sedan, buhuu it’s the end of an era.. (-Monica & Rachel).
Annars så hade jag ju min visdomstands operation idag, vilket gick bra! De tog ut både nedre och övre tanden på högra sidan. Jag har aldrig fått bedövning förr så det kändes väll lite obehagligt, men själva operationen gick smärtfritt och smidigt. Nu märker jag att det börjar behövas lite mer Burana... toodles!

Imorse mötte jag upp Riina på gymmet och drog ett riktigt bra träningspass tillsammans. Bästa sättet att börja dagen på, hands down. Annars har jag gjort en massa mindre roliga grejer som att plugga, byka och betala räkningar. I morgon ska jag till tandläkaren, min visdomstand ska antingen rivas eller opereras bort. Jag kommer säkert ha svårt att tugga i några dygn efteråt så jag har laddat upp med en maaaassa bananer som jag ska göra bananglass och smoothies av. Så skönt att få det undanstökat äntligen, jag har haft problem med tandjäveln enda sedan New York.. Nu ska jag äta (jag måste store up for winter eller kanske rättare sagt the weekend haha) och sen ska vi kolla på skräckisen Babadook med Nici!
Jag höll på att ta selfies (för andra gången den här månaden, vad händer??) när en man cyklade förbi mig, när han la märke till mig och min lilla photo-sesh saktade han ner så pass mycket att han tänkte falla av cykeln, vi hade en creepy eye contact moment och i samma stund tog jag bilden ovan hahaha..... eeeh okej I guess you had to be there..
