We went to restaurant Sogno in Töölö on our date day, after stand up paddling, cafe regatta and some beers. I had not any expectations neither had I heard anything of the places besides the Eat book’s description. The place was easy to find and their terrace with glass walls looked really nice and attractive. … More EAT – 3. Sogno
It took us five months to use the Eat book again, but finally made a table reservation to a place we picked from the book. Those who don’t know, we got a Helsinki Eat book as a Christmas gift. It introduces you to 12 restaurants in Helsinki and when showing the book at the place … More EAT – 2. Hoku
My best friend gave me and my hubby a better Christmas gift than we could have hoped for. It was a book called “Eat”. This magical little book introduced you 12 small restaurants in Helsinki that are worth visiting – and you can get one main course for free with the book. The food lovers … More EAT – 1.

(Contains spoilers for people who haven’t seen all 4 seasons – the rest of the unsullied are safe) The 4th season ended a week ago, and we all are hungry for more. No more the thrill of Sunday night (or Monday morning, for those poor souls who cannot afford HBO). I consider myself lucky, because … More Why is Game of Thrones so good? #1

Finally finally finally. I finished my bachelor thesis, turned it in, took the books back to the library, emptied my dropbox file, took all my notes to paper recycle bin, removed the schedule from the door of my fridge – and poured myself a big glass of Australian white wine. No more stress. No more … More “Thoughts on my thesis.” What a boring title!
I actually have no idea what’s the English idiom for a person who is good with flowers and gardening, but in Finnish they are called “viherpeukalo” which literally means green thumbs. That’s something I definitely do not have. Nevertheless, I am ambitious. When I turned 17, I fell in love with bonsais. Those magnificent miniature … More Green thumbs up
A few weeks ago I read a blog post about young women rushing to get married, and how the society and media encourage them to do that. And how it is not a good thing. The post was written in the US. Well, I am one of those young women; I’m 22, and getting married next August. Somehow the … More (relatively) Young and Married
I should be working on my thesis, but for some reason here I am – writing a post of my current favorite TV show. Like the fans known, Game of Thrones (GoT) returned on air this week with the premier of the 4th season. Could I be more excited?? Five minutes of the episode, and … More Back to Westeros
My boyfriend sent me a text today, that said: Is it enough that we love each other? The question made me stop. I instantly replied “Yes, it is”, but it made me think. Is it really? We have been in a long distance relationship for almost 5 years now. Most of the time it has … More Is Love All we Need?
