One cultural experience which I wanted to share already for a long time - hairdressers. Living in Russia, I got used to the particular way. I always had long hair, and I always wanted to keep them long. I hated the visit to the hairdresser because my goal was to cut off 1-2 centimetres of… Continue reading Russian Vs. Finnish Hairdressers
I can't say I am a big fan of cheeses like one of my friends who can't spend a single day without a bite. Yet, I enjoy trying different flavours from time to time. These days, we have all possible options in the shop, from cheap and simple to expensive and extravagant. Some have gentle… Continue reading Story about Cheese
On August, 16, I decided to go for a 30-day blog marathon, while going through a terrible leg pain. The initial idea was to post every day, thus, the expected final day was September, 15. Since things never go as planned, there were 2,5 months delay. Today is the final post, where I write some… Continue reading Day, 30. Challenge is Over

Extreme Situations

I love cooking, and my speciality is meat dishes. I love experimenting with different tastes, combining new ingredients. I feel more than confident. Even if I am not that happy with the result, food still ends up tasty. And things are just the opposite when it comes to baking. I am simply not capable. I… Continue reading Day 19. Me No Baker
The sky is crying. On days like this, I like to roll myself into warm cosy blanket, make a cup of tea, and listen to heavier melodic music, diving into bittersweet melancholy.
The darker, rainier, and gloomier it is outside, the heavier is the music in my playlist.
I just remember the beginning of summer, the feeling of having much time, the perception that everything is still ahead. Yesterday, I work up and calender indicated August, the last summer month. Things were slow and intensive at the same time, unpredictable, and surprising. Things didn't necessarily go as planned, yet, there were new interesting… Continue reading Hello August!
