10 Things About Me

I've read many bloggers write posts where they share 10 things about themselves, either facts or funny things. I really like to read these so I wanted to write a similar post myself for you to get to know me a bit better!

1. I drink from a bottle always tongue first. It looks a bit weird to people, as if I'm tasting the drink to make sure it's not bad :D I didn't even realize it before my hubby pointed it out. It's a habit that cannot be changed.

2. My hubs likes to be physically close during couple time, hold hands etc. but when we go to movies I absolutely cannot hold hands. Don't you just think it breaks the illumination of you being part of the movie when you hold hands while watching it?! ;)

3. I have to end every meal with something sweet, chocolate, cookies etc. And having serious food allergies I've started baking and making all kind of trials in kitchen! I used to have lots of stomach ache before I went for allergy tests and lost weight but now that I've learned what I can eat and what not, I have gained weight, energy and positivity.

4. My parents have never pressured me and my sis into a certain kind of a career. My sister is a gardener today and I do something completely different. Blogging is my way of expressing creativity that I've inherited from my dad who is a photographer. I love writing and inspiring people and taking photos. It's my way of relaxing!

5. I talk to plants. 

6. I have a HUGE soft spot for animals. I have always had pets and our first dog was called Suru (sadness in Finnish). Now my two cats live in Finland. If I see snails on the road after rain I have to move them aside so that no one will step over them. I cry endlessly if I see a touching animal video like this one.

7. My husband never calls me by name, always "Sweety". So if he mentiones me by name somewhere it feels weird.

8. I'm e x t r e m e l y stubborn.

9. I can't leave the house without a lip balm.

10. I've learned more about myself, what I want from my life and what I want to be like within the past one year than during the first almost 30 years.

Nutty Chocolate Chip Cookies

As I promised, here's the recipe for my chocolate chip cookies my hubby almost finished in one seating (luckily I had eaten a good share before he came home haha). This recipe is quick and easy, as all my recipes, and based on a craving I had and the ingredients I happened to have in my fridge without any preparation.

Sooo here it goes:

Preheat oven at 175 degree celcius. Blend one cup almonds in a food processor and mix them with one cup oats/flour. I blended my oats to make them into flour as I didn't have any at home :D. Add in half a cup cacao powder and sweeten with honey (I didn't measure, I suggest tasting the mixture to make sure it's sweet enough). Add milk of choice to make mixture just wet enough to mix well but still firm. Mix in a generous amount of chocolate chips. Scoop balls with a spoon and flatten into a cookie shape on a baking sheet. Add some chocolate chips on top and bake for 15-20 minutes until crispy.

I also did another batch with cranberries on top of chocolate chips. They are bitter sweet if you like it, although I have to admit the chocolate ones were gone faster ;)

Bling Bling

It's always a pleasure finding new fun places to shoot and new places where I haven't been on this tiny island! I noticed a colorful artpiece (you could find these anywhere in Finland but in Singapore only in places specifically meant for spraying) and decided to take a couple shots using it as a background. The photos are actually my favourite outfit photos so far :) I really like to contrast of colors and shadows.

New Home

It's been a bit silent at the blog because I've been moving to a new place! Moving is always a bit difficult because I get attached to the places where I live and dislike constant change in the home front. However, this a chapter of my life full of change so I better get used to it and take most out of new experiences. The good thing about moving house is that you see all the things that have accumulated and can decide what to keep and what to throw/give away. It's also a new fresh start and that's the part I do like. I love starting new things and the feeling of a "new beginning" :)

I have a cookie recipe and better pics of this outfit coming up very soon, stay tuned! :)
