through the years: september

 The last time(s) I did these Through the years posts, I kind of stopped before the end of the year. One of the reasons being that I seem to often not post in September for some reason. But I really like doing these and going through old photos and blog posts, so wanted to get back to this series. So here's some outfits from past Septembers:

project 365: week thirty-eight

 260: Started the week with doing food prep for the week and baking. This was my first time making these coconut and raspberry cakes gluten-free and they were still so good - even though they don't look the best. I'm actually going to try and start making my own gf baked goods more often since I like them so much better than anything shop-bought.

dressed for a funeral

 This is one of my favourite vintage dresses, but also one that I wear the least. And this is one of those rare occasions when I don't necessarily want to wear it more often - it is my funeral and mourning dress.

project 365: week thirty-seven

 253: An actual photo of me on my way to do a food shop. Really though, this is one of the bags I sometimes use for food shops and whatnot. Moomins make everything more fun.

 You know how I'm continuously gushing about Ruissalo? Here's some more of that! It is just such a gorgeous little island and a 100% one of my favourite places in Turku.

Blueberry-tinted lips, snack breaks on big rocks, pretty light rays through the trees, forest smells, and tiny plant-life. These are my favourite things when blueberry picking. And of course getting lots of berries - both into my belly and my basket!

project 365: week thirty-six

 246: I had a pretty boring week last week (shocker, I know), and most of these Project 365 pictures are of food - the most exciting part of every day! Dishes like this are my favourite to make at the moment: just toss all the ingredients in a pan and it's done.

migraine awareness week

Apparently it's Migraine Awareness Week, and when I went to check out the Migraine Trust's website about it I came to realize that as someone who has lived with migraines for over a decade I wasn't as aware of them as I thought either. So, how am I expecting those around me to be when it isn't talked about that much (much like most other medical conditions aren't) even though it is so common?

saaronniemi and the sea

 This has been one of my favourite places this summer. And even more so now that it's autumn and the beach is more deserted. I am a bit sad because all the summer caf├ęs have or are about to close down until next year (where can I get my weekly chips after swimming now?), but otherwise the beach and the sea are still where I try to go about once a week.
