Last night we had a Halloween dinner party at Cat & Sam’s place. We had all dressed up and I wore my zebra onesie (comfiest outfit ever). I had my very first mimosa (?), we baked a carrot cake with candy skulls on top, ate delicious food and just had a good time. I’m feeling a bit weak today so I’m probably just gonna take it easy and get some school stuff done. I also feel like watching a scary movie so hopefully I can find a good one online, I have a loooong list of must-see movies so I better get on it.

Yesterday was one of those days where all I wanted was to live alone on a tropical deserted island with nothing to do but to play and snuggle with animals all day long. Today I’m gonna try and appreciate all the little things and just have a good day, doesn’t seem too difficult right..?

Yesterday me and Cat attended an Ashtanga yoga class at our gym, it felt so good to practise even though I was struggling a bit with a few things, ah I’m super excited to start practising more regularly again. Btw, love the gloomy weather it’s so cozy (to be inside..) Talk to you later♥

These veganized Toast Skagen's that Cecu & Malin whipped up for Friday's dinner were insanely good!! Crazy how you can make anything vegan these days... looove it! Yesterday I (accidentally) attended a jazz dance class which turned out to be a lot of fun, and other than that I haven’t been up to much this weekend except for reading about organizational sociology and eating loads of hummus. Hope all you blog readers have a cozybozy Sunday night!

So I haven’t been feeling my best the past few days.. School stress has been getting to me more than ever which is weird because I don’t even have THAT much going on? and I’ve been feeling super unmotivated and bummed out. The last drop was probably when I accidentally missed a deadline and it felt like my life was a tiny bit ruined for a second, that’s when I first realized I need to take a moment to breath and reboot. You know the feeling when you have too much stuff to do so you end up taking a nap instead? that was me minus the napping.. But after crying to my bf about it on the phone last night I now feel much better. So to sum up: life’s good minus school stuff.
Mine and Chobi’s joint birthday dinner on Tuesday night was a lot of fun! We went to Delhi Darbar because the food there is always on point (Indian food, need I say more?) It was a super cozy dinner followed by a drink in the pub across the street. I also realized yet again how amazing my friends are and how much I love them. Tomorrow is also gonna be fun because Fellu & Malin are in Turku and we’re gonna wine & dine at Cat & Sam’s place!

Today it’s my roomie’s turn to turn 23! HAPPY BIRTHDAY cute little Chobster ♥ Since our birthdays are so close to each other we’re gonna celebrate the both of us tonight by going out for dinner with a bunch of our friends.
aaand a little blast from the past from our graduation. Who knew back then that we would both be living in Turku, as roomies....while studying in the same university?? Craycraay!

I got insanely spoiled for my birthday. Some people probably think that you can’t have cakes and cookies and all that stuff as a vegan but let me just tell you what I had... Cat made me a banoffee cake (pictured), mom made me a whipped-cream/yoghurt-quark dessert with berries, and Cecilia made me cinnamon buns. I also bought a baked goods box from the animal-rights organization Oikeutta Eläimille, and they donated all the money to Tuulispää, an animal sanctuary.♥ The box contained a giant peanut butter-chocolate chip cookie, peanut butter bar, and a slice of mint chocolate cake & cheezecake. Needless to say that everything I mentioned in this post tasted absolutely delicious. I’m so glad that animals don’t need to suffer in order for us humans to have a yummy birthday, or any other day for that matter. ♥
Happy Sunday everyone!!

It’s my birthday today, yaay!! I’ve already had the best start to the day, last night at midnight I got the cutest happy birthday messages from my besties & my boyfriend, and today I started the day by listening to Josefin & Vanja’s podcast which is always a mood booster. I went to buy coffee and satsumas and just got home, sat down on the floor of my room, lit a chocolate-coffee scented candle, opened some gifts and I feel so grateful and happy ♥ Now I’m off for a Coreball workout with Cat, have an awesome 12th of October everyone!
The one on the left is me on my birthday party a few years back haha, apparently I was having some issues with sharing my birthday cake or something...

Ok.. I’m extremely frustated right now and I need to share with you what I just saw... So basically I just saw an ad on Youtube where a girl was happily showing her plant-based protein groceries to her friend, and the friend kind of rolls her eyes and starts drinking a smoothie called "Proegg protein-smoothie”.. and all I’m thinking is how low can you go Laitilan Kanatarha? First of all I would like to know how you think when you try to put down plant-based proteins that are 100% the healthiest ones for you, and secondly, whyyyyy do you think that adding hens undfertilized reproductive menstruation cycles to a smoothie is necessary?? I’m so sick of people obsessing about protein (especially animal based proteins), just do your homework, watch Forks Over Knives, read the China Study or something (the information about bad cholesterol, cancer etc. is out there everywhere) and lastly, just take a moment to be non-egoistic and think about the baby male chicks that get ground up in a chipper because of the egg industries. Sorry not sorry about this rant, this was my initial, honest reaction to yet another product on the market that’s is contributing to the slaughter of innocent animals, and it just shows how brainwashed society is with all this protein bullshit. Laitilan Kanatarha this one’s for you

Last night we had dinner at Cat & Sam’s. They had made a yummy nutty-pesto sauce and a black bean dip that we had with pasta and freshly baked bread. Dessert was chai tea, Lovice chocolate-nougat ice cream with chocolate mousse and peanut butter & Ballerina cookies (we’re soo deprived I know..) I’ve just been studying pretty much all day today and tonight’s plans are taking a walk in the park, practise some yoga and watch an episode of Penny Dreadful that my bf sent me last night.

Yesterday me and my mom went to have lunch at Sushi Panda. Highly recommend their vegan sushi!! The ones pictured had fried sesame tofu, avocado, carrot & basil. After eating, me and mom were talking about how satieted and good we felt, plus she mentioned the lack of guilt not having killed someone, and it’s so true. When you eat plant-based you feel so good on so many different levels, I can't even explain..when you know you know.
After walking around in some shops, we went to the movies to see Bridget Jones's Baby. We both love the Bridget Jones movies so we were really excited to see this one. I honestly thought it was sooo funny, I laughed so hard tears started pouring down my face a couple of times..
After saying bye to mom in the evening, I went to hang out at Cat and Sam’s new place. It’s a two story apartment with a fireplace and stuff.. ah it’s so cozy, and the best part? it’s on the same street that me and Chobi live in, happyhappyyy!
