David's Tattoos

After having given it so many years of careful thought, I have come to love David Beckham's tattoos. What do you think? Well, I think our Victoria is one very beautiful and lucky woman.

Päivän asu - I'm Wearing Earrings

Weeell, I'm not wearing them quite yet... but I ordered these lil' earrings a couple of days ago. Aren't they just cute? I found them via Joanna's CUP OF JO, one of the blogs I follow.

They are from Elephantine. You get a trio of minuscule studs (black, white and blush) for about $60.

I have found this marvelous product to make my pretty face even prettier. By Chanel. This is the perfect tone for my sunkissed facey at this time of the year ♥♥♥

I also want to bring to your attention that my friend Heidi has a make-up blog Laineilla which is hilarious AND informative AND oh-so-up-to-date-with-the-IN-stuff. Just like she is.

Life Savers...

We've been enjoying a great weather here in D.C. this summer. Unlike our friends in Finland, sorry for that... Daytime temperatures get as high as 40 degrees Celcius and with 80 % humidity, well, it's quite hot and sticky.

Thankfully, our house has "AC" - air conditioning - without it we wouldn't sleep. It is not beautiful and it's quite noisy, too but as I said, without it, we'd be in big trouble so let's hope Pepco manages to keep the electricity running and let's hope the high level of - hummm - engineering you see in these pics will not fail us. At least not before towards the end of September.

No, it is not a radio from the 50s...

Yeah, it looks more modern but it's one noisy sob anyway...

Lights and fan together! Wowow, some genius must have designed this!

Our kitchen is an oven. This thingy is to take the hot air around the place...

Idle Parenting

I know I know, I've neglected the blog big time lately. But I guess a little summer break never hurt anyone...

Today I've also been sooo lazy with the kids. I actually read this book some years ago about idle parenting and have lived by it (the book) for today. Not bad from a control freak like myself, huh?

The book's point is basically:
Stop stressing.
Sit down and read a book.
Drink alcoholic beverages and leave your kids alone.

Nice, eh :))))

Finally, they actually run away on me and left the door open...
I'll have a Corona and get them from the alley. Later.

I am so in love with Emily's blog EMILY T.C. 


Damages (My Favourite Day)

I am not talking about all the cuts and bruises and broken vases during the move... but the TV series I've been watching on dvd this weekend. This series to me is divine plotting, exciting characters and great power dressing which makes it excellent entertainment as you watch it in your sweatpants eating cookies :)))

Olen viikonlopun tuijotellut dvd:ltä sarjaa nimeltä Damages. Katselin sarjaa jo Suomen telkusta aikanaan, mutta lapset olivat silloin vielä pieniä ja itse kävin päivisin töissä... joten nukahdin usein jo puolivälissä. Sarja tuli Täydellisten naisten jälkeen ja alkoi vasta klo 22. Muistatteko? No, nyt vahinko takaisin ja työpaikkapukeutumisvinkit talteen, vastaisuuden varalta.

Go Ellen!!! You are my hero!

4th of July

Yesterday, we had our first 4th of July celebration here in D.C.. We spent the day enjoying a pool + poolside at our friends' house and had a BBQ in the afternoon. At about 8 p.m. we set off to the National Mall and arrived just in time to see the g i g a n t e s q u e fireworks at 9.15 p.m. Wow, we'd never seen anything like that and there we about 5 million people there to share this with.

Those were te biggest fireworks ever!
Picture is from here
BUT: as you can see I'm still very much under the weather with the move... Struggling to empty a number of boxes every day, but it's just that there are so many. I have started to seriously question my need for all this ... hmmm... stuff, you know.

Here's a picture of my "office"...
