What to Wear?

Don't you just love outfit pics? Me too! And the best part is when you realize you've got the bag, you've got the pants, you've got the cardigan, you've got the glasses and the shoes (though flats)...
This outfit is from HERE and it's said to work wonders for example in a job interview.

Coco Mademoiselle

I have become so Chanel lately... Or have I not? Look what I purchased at the Madrid Barajas the other day. And have grown very fond of this je-crois-que-suis-une-vraie-parisienne scent by now.

Yet Another Pest Alert

Okay, so: The new house is freaking  i n f e s t e d  with some pests unknown to us Nordics. From my research they seem more moth-like than roach-like which I guess is always good news.

However, for fear that these  a b u n d a n t  moth-bugs would eat all our jumpers before the winter season, we cried for HELP.

Our new pet is called Box Elder Bug and it's totally harmless. Here's MORE.

Home Inspiration

Ostin Helsinki Vantaalta japanilaisen Finland Family Style -kirjan ihan heräteostoksena. Nyt sitä selattuani olen totaalisen inspiroitunut. Koti kuntoon ja kynttilät esiin. Syksy saa tulla, we're ready!

Home Sweet Home

Travelling is tiresome. It's great to be home. Missed my kids, too...
Pieni pyrähdys Pohjolassa ja Espanjan kautta kotiin. Jetlagisenä mutta onnellisena.

Kids at Madrid Barajas before our nine-hour flight back to D.C.

My Favourite Day -- Going Home

I have always loved the way Finland welcomes me -- penniless and wounded sometimes -- from my trips to far-away places. She doesn't dazzle me with city lights or high towers. No, she closes her hairy, green arms on me and hugs the hell outta me with the most soothing of green colour there is on this earth. She makes me feel she really loves me.

I'm flying home today!

This is pretty much what it looks like when you land in Helsinki.
And then, at the very moment of landing, there appears to be some kind of an airport there :D

Oh No, Oh No!

Take a look at this: The Urban Outfitters Home Catalogue. This is seriously dangerous stuff!

Need New Cam

Kamerani on sanonut sopparin irti, se ei vaan enää toimi. Ruudussa on häikkää eikä se pentele enää tarkenna kunnolla. Kävin kysymässä korjauksesta. Sanoivat, että uuden osto tulee halvemmaksi. Ei mulla muuta.

I think Jimmy here needs a new camera, too :)
