The little things -

Not this kind of nude, silly! Lately I have spent not one visit, but many visits to Sephora and other beauty emporiums trying to find the perfect nude.  Does anyone else out there notice how many ugly, deeply unflattering nude lipsticks there are?  It's particularly confounding since you see almost every model and actress in every ad wearing the same pinkish nude lip but you try to find that color and it DOES NOT EXIST.  Is this a conspiracy?  Where are all those women getting their perfect...

I had written a tentative list of things I might automatically continue doing, or at least think of doing even after leaving Senegal. When I return to Finland, I might continue to... … greet other passenger in public transport vehicles with a "salaam aleykum" ... hand over the money for the bus ticket to other passengers who will pass it on until the cashier … smile and say hello to strangers on the street … buy an alcoholic drink whenever I see one, being afraid that it might take a...

Make Up Store and it's products are something, that quite many make up artists love. I've always been a bit skeptical about that. I mean, sure, they can be good I suppose, but so is the price as well. And with good I mean expensive. They can't be that special. When I got my bachelors papers, I got as a graduation gift a 40 euros gift card to Make Up Store. I felt excited. I had just bought a cheap foundation, that was no good- and seriously, no good- it stained and left spots on your face- it...

My breakfast nowadays is this tasty yoghurt-jam-nut mixture. Organic yoghurt, organic jam and nut compote. The nut compote contains of walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, cashews and pistachios. It´s flavored with vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, chilli, sugar and rhum. Don´t worry, I´ve boiled away all the alcohol in the rhum to prevent having a shot first thing in the morning... Chocolate. What would life be without chocolate? Pretty boring IMO. The chocolates above are filled with prunes soaked in...

I craved for something warm and I craved for bread. I found an inspiring recipe of a rhye-bread on a flax-seed package, and I used the idea from it. I ended up making these flat breads, which they call "Rieska" in finnish. Rhye-flaxseed FLATbreads! 3 dl sesameseed (or any other, like oat, coconut) milk (soaked sesameseeds+few figs, dash of salt & cardamum and blended with water) 1 tsp of baking soda ½ tsp of baking powder dash of salt cumin seeds few tbsp of sugar / syrup ½ dl flax seeds...

The last two days I have been around the city centre with Jussi and Sophie and some other friends. This party just keeps getting bigger. Right now I am kind of excited what will happen tonight. The fallas will be burned starting at ten o'clock. Nobody will sleep tonight. Every day the macletà at two o'clock draws more and more people to the central square. The Plaza de la Reina has a marvellous monument made of roses. I hope to add some more info here. At night the riverside was full of...

How much money is reasonable to use in beauty? How much is your beauty bill every year? How much you would like it to be? How much is enough, and what would be "too much"? A regular Finnish woman is using 151 euros to cosmetics. In a year. 151 euros... only? I started to count my expenses. I'm using that money annually to shampoo only!? So I made a list about my estimated cosmetic charges, and added also a number of these products I yearly use. Mascara 25e x 4 Eye-liner 19e x 2 Eyebrow pencil...

The thing is, I made this series for a wedding gift, and honestly, it doesn't really meet by quality requirements. But guess who was stupid enough to make them on a previous night? Yes, me. So no time to make a new batch. Anyway, my plan was to make jewelry based on millefiori made after this image: Which I pretty soon find out to be IMPOSSIBLE TO MAKE. So I dug up this more traditional labyrinth picture and that went okay. Only that at this point, I made my first mistake: The white was a...

En tiedä mihin nämä kuukaudet nykyisin häviää, mutta se olisi lokakuu ja aika kerätä yhteen syyskuun suosikit. Huomasin viikonloppuna, että keinoni selvitä pimeistä loka- ja marraskuusta, on alkaa ajattelemaan joulua. Joten koittakaa kestää, joulu saattaa vilahdella tästä lähtien postauksissa usein.  Syyskuussa oli aika kaivaa kaapista esiin ihoa hemmotteleva suihkutuote, hoitaa käsiä, antaa vielä viimeiset hehkun rippeet kasvoille ja kirkastaa ihoa A-vitamiinin voimin. ...

(Subject: Travel stories III: Edinburgh continued (some light reading for you for the rainy days...)) X)It always rains. I read in the papers that this June was the rainiest here for decades - but I can't really say I was surprised; I seem to bring the rain with me. The October I lived here was also the wettest in Scotland for more than 30 years... On the other hand, during the twelve months I lived here, I also experienced the hottest day in the UK ever since the records began. Anyway, it...

So, just for fun I made these crazy-ass beads. The first batch went haywire. Firts everything looked good; I made these pretty, multicolored beads. Only after baking I noticed that 1) instead of white pearly powder I had used silver powder, which efectively transfered all my thoughfully colored beads to solid silver color, and that 2) while turning the heat for baking down from 130C to 110C, I had accidentally turned the heat *up* to 150C, which made the bead go, uh. melty. So, that was that...

I made so many delicious things in the summer, but this time I only want to write down the pie-recipe we used last night for making lingonberry-pie for dinner. I mean as a dinner. I'll post images later on.. I'm just lazy. But our recipes are always so good and successful that I have to start writing them down more often! Here of course you can use any berries you wish, we just had a craving for lingonberries. Or at least I did. Lingonberry-pie The base: Wet mixture: 0,8 dl oil (we used coconut...

Beetroot pie Well, okay, maybe this is more of a bread, but because it's kind of sweet I do call it a pie. I felt the need to write down this recipe, because this was such a success! The result was soft and moist, and I think a lot if it had do to with the ingredients. I used organic spelt flour with gives a nice taste for this. Wet setting: 2 dl of almond milk (soak overnight and blend with water and soaked raisins - or just use some other kind of milk) 0,5 dl olive oil 1 dl muscovado sugar...

Siveltimien hypistelyyn on vaikea kyllästyä, ja vaikka en mielestäni hamstraa niitä erityisesti, bongasin joulun alla muutaman uuden tärpin. Real Techniques on lanseerannut uusia söpön värisiä suteja ja samoin oli jo aika tutustua The Body Shopin siveltimiin. Molempien sarjojen kaikki siveltimet ovat synteettisiä eli vegaanisia. Real Techniquesin siveltimet ostin alekoodin kanssa ja The Body Shopin sudin täysihintaisena. Minulla on pari kappaletta saman käyttötarkoituksen...

Palataanpa vielä hetkeksi viime vuoden puolelle ja joulukuun kosmetiikkasuosikkeihin. Suosikit eivät tällä kertaa suinkaan olleet mitenkään jouluisia ja musta tuntuu, että oon muutenkin käyttänyt jotenkin normaalia vähemmän nimenomaan jouluisia tuotteita ja fiilistellyt paljon mm. sellaisilla suihkugeeleillä, jotka liitän tuoksun puolesta kesään. Tiedä sitten mistä tää johtuu, kun normaalisti oon hyvin "vuodenaikauskollinen" kosmetiikan tuoksujen kanssa :D Mutta pidemmittä...

Recently, I have not felt the urge to spin. Remember the feeling when you just learned to spin? The manic need to spin? To see the next color emerge from the top? To see them on the bobbin, to just stare at the colors, all lined up, in perfect harmony? To see the bobbin full, and then to ply and then block the yarn and then merely to admire the finished yarn? That was gone for a long, long time. (Reason for this? See last post.) But then, I drove 250 miles southeast to meet other spinners. Some...

You know when you live in a dark hole of an apartment that natural light never touches and can't take any decent photos for days because of it?  I think I might have to get some sort of a daylight studio lamp once the days get shorter. Anyway, I'm here with a little review of A'Pieu's Moisture Nude Foundation (SPF30 PA++). I've been using Mizon's Hydra Full Solution Water Volume Moisture  BB cream for the past year, but it recently started to run out. I really like it and might buy it again...

My only addition was replacing nutmeg with freshly ground cardamum. Banana and nuts are my favorites!! Eaten with a new find: coconut jam by Jam It! Suitable for vegans. They also have other exotic jam options, papaya and mango. But now for the recipe (from the book Veganomicon, the measures are translated from cups): Ingredients: about 4 dl of soy milk 1 dl of...

Mmmm... I don't like cheese fondue, but this was delicious! It was ski day of the clinic last wednesday, skiing wasn't that spectacular, besides my awesome crash in the fresh powder snow, when I was supposed to show my colleagues, how well the fins control every kind of winter sports... In the evening we had this great dinner at a steamship at Lake Lucerne. To the fondue we had chicken, pork, beef, different vegetables and sauces, rice, fries... And ice cream with chocolate sauce as dessert! Of...

Hei taas, helteiset päivät ovat pitäneet pihalla - tosin haen sitä varjoa, jos mahdollista. Kaikki kasvaa jo niin nopeasti ja kukkivat yhtäaikaa. Pitää vaan toivoa ettei tule hirveää hallaa.

Ranskalaisella Patykalla on tänä keväänä puhaltaneet muutoksen tuulet, sillä sarja on uudistunut. Tulevaisuudessa löytyy  Biokalift -linjan sijasta sekä uudistuvia, että kokonaan uusia tehotuotteita. Sain aiemmin keväällä kutsun uusien tuotteiden lanseeraustilaisuuteen, mutta valitettavasti olin estänyt menemästä muiden kiireiden vuoksi. Joliella oltiin kuitenkin niin ihania, että tilaisuuden jälkeen postissa saapui paketti, jonka sisältönä oli pari PR-näytettä...
