Introducing my shop

Well, actually it's more of a wardrobe sale. I decided to do one like so many other bloggers have because I really do need to sell some of my clothes (and shoes) as I plan to move in a few months time and then I cannot take everything with me. The things are quite reasonably priced, I'd say, but I also welcome offers (more info on that in the shop). So far I've listed five items but I'll be putting up more over the next few days, so do check back to see if there is something that might interest you. Anyway, enough talk, check it out for yourself here

I ship worldwide!

Vegetable pie.

I made a delicious vegetable pie today, and here's how to make one:


This is what you need (feel free to leave out and add your own ingredients, too): spinach, carrots, paprika, tomatoes, mushrooms, sugar snaps, onion and garlic - and a pie dough. Usually I'll make the dough myself, but sometimes I'm too lazy and will buy those where water is the only thing you need to add.

Mix the spinach in with carrots and onion that you've cut, and grate the garlic ( I love my little mini grater!)...

...then spread onto the pie.

Cut and add sugar snaps, mushrooms and paprika (I also added sun-dried tomatoes).

Also slice tomatoes and place on top of the pie.


Now, for the sauce. I usually mix a lot of things together: soya milk, lemon juice, corn starch and egg replacer. I also add fresh herbs, and spices (pepper, salt, some chili and ginger). Just experiment and find out how you like it.

Pour onto the pie and bake at 200 degrees celcius for 40 minutes.

And voilá!

PS: Sorry for being such a bad blogger lately. I've had a lot on my mind, and I've also been lacking inspiration. Hopefully it'll be better soon.

Here I am, finally wearing this dress by Lover, which I love so, so much. It fits me perfectly, it has a fantastic shape, and the detailing is just wonderful. The only bad thing about it is that it can only be dry cleaned and thus I am quite paranoid about not making it dirty (something that isn't easy for someone who is an expert at spilling just about anything on myself).

Now I'm going to go to bed and get a good night's sleep and then go to the library tomorrow to seriously sit down and figure out what to write about for my master's thesis... horrible.

These pictures were taken a few days ago in my parents' garden. I love it when the roses bloom since they are among my favourite flowers. I've been thinking of trying to make some food with rose petals since I've heard that that should supposedly be tasty - have any of you ever done that? Today I've been baking some blueberry muffins with the blueberries I picked the other day, and I must say they were extremely yummy, and too difficult to resist. Oh, why is it so hard to only eat one of something that is so good?

What I want this autumn.

Like so many others I have also begun pondering about what I want this autumn, clothes vise, and I decided to create a little set on polyvore of the items I want.

1. A pretty cape. I want a nice and flowing wool one, in either navy, red or black. Maybe with a hood as well. I've actually been wanting a cape for a few years now, but I have yet to find the perfect one.

2. This tartan cross body bag from Topshop. It reminds me of something I had as a little girl, and I think it looks really cute.

3. Some pretty over-knee socks (that are long enough to wear with suspenders). I really like these sheer ones from American Apparel.

4. This blazer from the Divided Exclusive collection. I want it so badly, and really hope that I can get my hands on it. There are also some matching shorts, which I also want. It's going to be amazing to have a great suit like that!

5. A blue and white stripe top. I have tops with red and black stripes, on white, but I think I need one with blue stripes as well. It's such a classic piece and versatile piece.

6. A pencil skirt. If it has braces like this one from American Apparel, that would be fantastic as well, since I want a skirt with that, too.

7. These tights from Up Factory. I think they're so quirky and lovely. Though I don't know if I'd actually get them since they are a bit on the pricey side. Speaking of tights, I need some red ones, too.

8. A minidress with long sleeves. I know that this is a playsuit, and not a romper, but it gives the illusion of a dress a little bit, I think (and is also so beautiful). I couldn't really find any other good picture to illustrate it with.

What about you then? Which pieces of clothing do you have on your wish lists for this autumn?

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all enjoying your week! All I've been doing is work, work, work, and I'm quite sick of working after doing that all summer. My university duties feel so distant - although the fact that I need to start writing my master's thesis is really starting to haunt me. And more so the fact that I absolutely cannot make up my mind of what to write about is really stressing me out. Enough complaining. Tomorrow I'm going away to my parents cabin for a couple of days, so that will be nice. I'm going to be picking lots of blueberries so that I'll have enough to make lots of delicious blueberry dishes this fall.

Flower crown tutorial.

Back in April when I made this post several of you asked how I made the flower crown I was wearing. I said that I would make a tutorial for you in the summer, and while it's been summer for a few months now, I had completely forgot about that tutorial until now. Nevertheless, better late than never, and there is still almost a month of summer left, so if you feel like giving it a try making a flower crown, here is a tutorial for you!

Just a little note though: It is very important that the stalks of the flowers you are using are strong and bendy, otherwise it will be nearly impossible making a nice crown. It will only break and fall apart. You can use any kind of flower you like, or several different ones (Some of the nicest crowns are encompassed by various flowers, in my opinion) - I used forget-me-nots because I have lots of them in my garden and because I wanted a crown with small delicate flowers. Also, you don't necessarily need to gather all the flowers you're using before you start (I just thought that might be easier for beginners)... usually I just pick the flowers and make the crown as I'm walking around.

Up in a tree...

One of my favourite things to do on a warm summer day is climbing up in a nice tree (if there is one in sight), with thick and comfotable branches to sit on, and just think, dream, read, write, listen to music or anything else. I don't think I was doing any of those in these photos though, but next time I think I will. To me, that's one of the most relaxing things to do... I love feeling like I am a part of nature, in a way, like that.

Photographs from yesterday...


I had the chance to take these photographs of the beautiful scenery yesterday while going to a beach on the countryside with my mother and sister, which I thought I would share with you. I was mostly just relaxing, reading and going for an occational swim in the very cold water, but I also went for a little walk around in the area where I took these photos.

I hope all of you are enjoying your week!

Miso soup.

I suppose I don't dislike all Japanese food after all... I made this wonderfully delicious miso soup yesterday - which I modified and changed a little from the original recipe, and it turned out great. It's really such an easy soup to make and extremely healthy. I think you should try it too, and here's how:
