Four Seasons

Thursday, April 19, 2018





This is so special! Recently, Jani Ylinampa decided to document the incredibly snug and beautiful Kotisaari Island in Rovaniemi, Finland. He wanted to show how this tiny little spot changes depending on a season. So with the use of a drone he managed to do just that and the results are mesmerizing, if you ask me!

P.S: This.
P.P.S: That.

Denim Overalls For Spring

Wednesday, April 18, 2018

Speaking of spring, I'm obsessed with denim overalls and lately I've been wearing this pair on repeat! I love how comfortable, wearable but still put together they make me feel. So if you fancy an easy-breezy spring uniform, get a pair and wear it with your favourite tees this spring. Ta-dah!

P.S: This.
P.P.S: That.

Not Sad Desk Lunch

A friend recently told me that her go-to way to cheer up these (still) coolish busy weeks is by digging into a great desk lunch. She says that when she takes the time to prepare something colorful and healthy, yet easy the night before, she always has a better next day. So inspired by her idea, here are eight not sad desk lunches that we all should try out this month.

Staring with the above's, Farro-quinoa-brown rice with seared turnips, roasted beets, Brussels sprouts, garlicky spinach, smoked salmon and topped with za’atar sauce...

Homemade cup o' noodles...

Caprese salad + sourdough in a jar...

Sesame tempeh slaw...

Mason jar salad with Asian dressing...

Southwestern shrimp salad...

Egg and quinoa salad in a jar...

and jerk chicken bowl...

Which one tickles your fancy?

P.S: School lunches around the world.
P.P.S: Yum!
