My friend -and in some matters also freelancer colleague - K and her boyfriend have moved to a new flat in an area you have to catch a bus to get downtown from. Which for some may not sound like much but Helsinki is tram based. We (that is at lest K and I, and oh well and most other we know, those within the tram network :) find it kind of a big thing to move where the trams don't go. Even though that doesn't necessarily mean the same as "far away". (And to this I have to add, I will move a few bus stops further away in summer. Oh my!) So last weekend we grabbed some wine along and took the bus (for a few minutes) there!

We are considering the same tapestry for our future hall. (+This is also a sneaky outfit pic.)

We made dinner.

Oven baked sushi. Recipe can be found here. Open it with Firefox. For some reason it does not view properly in Safari.

Then Earth Hour started. Which we were of course totally aware of but might not have remembered if it wouldn't have been for the fact that most other windows around went dark...

It's nice with candle light. Newspapers said electricity usage in Helsinki went down with a few percents that night. (The people opposite didn't help out though as they have their light on. Hah, busted!)

Then it was time to eat. Sushi meets tacos sort of. Delicious.

K had made white chocolate pannacotta, animal friendly version, sans gelatin, with raspberries for dessert.

When it was late and all plates empty we went home. With a cab. Busses are for daytime use.

Wow you guys always have the most impossibly beautiful apartments! In New Zealand (when you're renting) you are hardly ever allowed to change anything about the house as far as painting the walls etc goes, it's one of the things I really miss about living in Europe!

I like that wallpaper but what about the first pictures ? What are those dolls? Also wallpaper?


nice decorations you've got here.
It would be really lovely to have such a nice flat like your ;)

Ruby Roulette : You are allowed to do quite a lot to the flat if agreed with the owner over here, but it really does depend. My sister and her bf re-painted the whole flat when they moved. But K and her bf bought this one so of course then no boundaries :)

Melina Bee : it was interesting but good. it's served cold though so it's ot as weird as it sounds!

Fairy Filigree : it's a doll poster!

AndWhatElseIsThere: it's nice for sure. But this time it's not from my flat, it's my friend's :)

Hah, no, it's fried nori. I have linked to the recipe in the post if you're interested.
