It's so easy to be happy

»»» Finnish Blog

it's easy to be young
all or nothing you know, hey rock 'n' roll
it's easy to attach and then let go
days just come and sundays go by
and it's easy to play the guitar in the night
it's so easy to be happy
and satisfied with what you've got


i'ts easy to be free and imagine there's a reason for everything
but how would you explain the genesis or love
i can plan my whole life, a wife and a job and a house, too 
but then everything goes differently, someone plans it all better than me 


it's so easy to be happy
and satisfied with what you've got
it's so easy to live right here and right now
and be satisfied with what you've got

Low carb food

I introduced a low carb cookbook in my Finnish blog the other day and realized that I should post the recipe here as well. I chose this one to show that  "low carb" doesn't mean "expensive and complicated".

I could get used to this

Fortunately we have reserved flights and a house in Biarritz in a few weeks. Hub wants to do surfing. I prefer a sunbed and a good book.

SATC 2

I have tickets for the opening night and cold piccolo champagne bottles to enjoy along. It won't be long now... just have to figure out what to wear...

Breakfast




Originally posted April 19th
I read yesterday that everyone is posting about certain subjects, such as "walking the dog", "here's my makeup", "movie night with candy" and "my breakfast". I did the makeup already and the dog (oh, yes, the picture was taken indoors, I'll get you an outdoors pic as well!) and I don't eat candy so here's my breakfast: 7 minutes boiled organic egg, organic oatmeal soaked over night and then cooked, added cream and butter plus 2 mugs of fresh ground coffee with whole milk. Except today it was cream, 'cos I was out of milk. So, my breakfast isn't very colourful but it sure is delicious. And contains no additional perservatives whatsoever.

Project balcony

When I was 15 I remember saying some really wise words, like "I have no interest in moving to Helsinki and I would never ever move to Espoo!"
I've officially lived in Espoo for 10 years now.

Featuring... Tuuni

I love decorating my home with old stuff and lace and I even have sewn a cover for the couch using sheets from the 50's and 60's that my Mom gave me. Back then the fabrics were really thick and durable, unlike these days. My this week's guest Tuuni uses such materials in her work, too.

DIY fatfree creamcake

Just in case you don't win my giveaway, I wrote a diy for a creamcake of your own (PS. don't forget this topic!):

11th day

Ten out of eleven days I'm fine with all my curves. Then comes the eleventh and I find a perfect Zara floral tulip dress that makes me look as if I'm dressed in...

Vintage

Despite the text on the stand ("vintage flea market", "happy village") there was nothing vintage for sale if you don't count a grilled sausage Hub had for lunch...  But the day was Fabulous!

The warm weather yesterday made me think about our trip to Spain last summer. Enjoy my very random images and hang drum by Pedro Collares!

First day of summer

First time in sandals this year. Basically I could have worn them yesterday but I had to put some nail polish on my toenails first.
I took a long walk outside and here's some things I came across:

Simple dinner


I love cooking, but it has to be easy. I posted my basic owen recipe a while ago and yesterday I made pretty much the same dish using mixed roots instead of cauliflower and chicken legs instead of salmon.

Summer at last!

It's going to be really warm next weekend! Like 114C yellow warm. This yellow beret isn't 114C yellow but I love it more and more each bad hair day!

Featuring... Stella Kim

I came up with an idea of featuring some other bloggers and Etsy-artisans and I was really lucky to get an interview from an Etsy artisan Stella Kim, thank you so much for your time! 




Holiday in my mind

Originally posted April 6th

»»»I always travel light. To me a very important part of the holiday trip is the planning: what do I wear? What else should I pack? Do I need some new pieces and where do I find them? What do we do there, activities, sports, museums? I never listen to the restaurant recommendations though -unless it's a Michelin star rated place. To my experience their best effort typically means mediocrity or worse for far too high prices.

This is just so √ľber-stylish!
Sorry about the poor quality from time to time.

1940's wedding gown


I was thinking that I should list this tomorrow. It was too small for me, otherwise I'd keep it myself. It's so pretty!

Birthday present

Originally posted April 14th.

When I was 19 I fell in love. That story didn't end like a fairytale but left a mark on my skin. 
I haven't been watching my neck in years but maybe I should have (hidious wasn't it!). Or maybe it just wasn't  the right time until now. Now this tattoo carries my Hub along as well as he gave it to me as a birthday present. And this time there's a pretty good chance for that happily ever after -thing, too.
The long story behind it in short: now when. That's always good to remember.

My personal challenge

Referring to the fact no 74 (no 14 on this list), I want to get rid of this stupid habit once and for all. That's why I'll be keeping a challenge counter on this page.
Instead of the former scissors, nail file and cuticle oil, I'm armed with rubber gloves and heavy Bepanthen creme for serious skin damages (which was originally bought for my tattoo): I use a fair amount of the cream on my hands and cover them with the gloves overnight. It's a bit of romance killer but what wouldn't a girl do for her beauty?
After 5 nights my cuticles are soft and I don't feel like picking them...
Edit: May 21st, this is how my cuticles look like now, almost normal I suppose

Edit: June 14th:

  

Wednesday's outfit

I almost forgot, but I do have some outfit pictures from Wednesday.
That dress (tunic) is my safe bet (better picture here) and BTW, I wasn't able to brush my hair after this do, I had to wash it 3 times.

Hair modeling

This time I spent the day by getting a new colour and a hairdo and so did 10 other girls. I forgot to take a portrait of the girl in the pink dress :(
But Enjoy!

Welcome!

Hello there and welcome to my English blog!

I've been writing my Another Fab Day blog for a few months now with translations, but I decided to divide it to two separate blogs. It's a lot more convenient, I believe.

This blog is mainly about my style and lifestyle, I'm a job seeking housewife who lives at the suburbs, loves all girly stuff and colours and flowers, smiles easily and laughs loudly. Here you can browse my outfits from last winter.

My latest hobby is my shop Prefecta vintage & more on Etsy for which I'm hunting thriftshops and working on new fun and preferably a little crazy ideas, like fatfree creamcakes.

I'm trying to fill this blog with as much interesting stuff as I can find, but I'm afraid this transition will take some time. I had a huge list of blogs that are written by women 30+, but it seems I managed to destroy it. So, if you're writing one or you know one, please let me know and I'll add it on my list! I really appreciate your help!!

Feel free to comment on anything, that makes me really happy!
I'm also open to all wishes, ideas, networking, co-operation etc. so send me a note if you have something in mind,
email prefectablog( at )hotmail.com

One more time: Welcome!

Kiitos k√§ynnist√§, toivottavasti tapaamme uudelleen! √Ąl√§ k√§yt√§ kuviani ilman lupaa.
Thank's for visiting, hope to see you again! Please, don't use my pictures without permition.
¡Gracias por su visita, espero que vuelva! No le puede usar mis fotos sin permiso.
