Mhmm




It’s contrary to feminism to consume milk.

It’s contrary to feminism to ask for equality for one group while oppressing another. 

It’s contrary to feminism to defend one type of female body while using and abusing another. 

It’s contrary to feminism to turn someone into a commodity. 

It’s contrary to feminism.

29th


Yesterday I was at home studying when the rain started pouring down and I was looking out the kitchen window thinking 'hooow depressing..' but after a few minutes I realized how cozy it felt and how beautiful it was outside. It made me think about how it’s kind of normalized to think that rain sucks and that Fall is super depressing.. But there’s something about all the different colours on the trees and the fresh crisp air that makes me feel so peaceful and harmonious. I’m probably gonna need to remind myself to enjoy it at times (especially during stormy windy moments) but right now I’m so happy Fall is here.

Clipper

This blackcurrant & acai berry tea that I got a few days ago is so good. Clipper is a fairtrade tea company with natural organic teas and I’ve liked every single one I’ve tried so far (and I’m a pretty picky tea drinker) and I just wanted to give you a hot tip for the upcoming cold cozy autumn nights! Hope you’re having a good weekend!

Cookies & Cinnamon Buns


Like a month ago, me and mom went to my grandma’s place. She’s so unaware and uninterested of what being vegan means and everytime I go there I have to explain to her that I don’t want to eat eggs or drink cows milk. I think I confused her even more last Christmas when I’d made a vegan cheezecake haha wooops.. Anyway my point is that she thinks being vegan is super restrictive because she doesn’t listen to me haha so last time I visited her, I brought some "accidentally vegan" stuff from the store; Findus cinnamon buns (you buy them frozen and just heat them up in the oven for a few minutes), Ballerina cookies & K-menu Chocolate Chip cookies. If you’re interested to see some more accidentally vegan stuff that you can buy in most grocery stores, check out this page!!

oh my


Yesterday I was totally able to relate to Samantha when I found out I actually have a shit ton of courses left when all this time I’d been thinking this last year in school would be a piece of cake for me.. Oh well, there’s nothing else to do but to power through I guess! Plus, I just had two perfect mangoes for breakfast and I'm now enjoying coffee on our sunny balcony while reading about medicalization. Life's pretty damn good to be honest.

she’s back


Holy moly!!! I just got surprised by my bestie Cat who’s been abroad for waaaay to long. She and her bf Sam showed up when I was supposed to have coffee with Cecilia this afternoon. The weird thing is I that I had a very strong feeling that it was gonna happen today (I was preeetty damn sure she was gonna surprise me at some point). Ah I’m so happy she’s back! Ps. I wrote that on Tuesday but I couldn’t post it straight away since she was going to surprise some other friends who may or may not read my blog haha.  

I got back from Cat’s summerplace earlier today, we went there to have a cozy Friday night with friends, good food & wine. After dinner we had a sauna session, had some of Emppu's rhubarb crumble dessert and then we laid on the grass and watched the stars. Such a good night!

Sushibar & Wine


Me and my bf went to Sushibar & Wine for the first time a couple of weeks ago. We were both super pleasantly suprised with the sushi (low expectations in life is key haha). I had the Vege Maki with tofu, avocado, cucumber and sesame seeds & Shitake Gunkan (pictured) with shiitake mushroom and chives. LOVE VEGGIE SUSHI!

All Moved In




The moving in part went quite smoothly thanks to Chobi and my kind parents who helped me out A LOT. I went to get internet broadband the very same evening and I also went to the gym for the first time since beginning of May. Feels good to be back on track with the basic things, after I get my stuff together with school etc I’m gonna feel so relieved. It’s been pretty stressful not having a set home for the summer and just living out of my backpack/boxes - I’m only up for that while traveling OUTSIDE Finland haha, so I’m happy to have a place to call home now! (even though it doesn’t quite look like one of the rooms in the pictures..)
