Sales shopping

Some of the drinkable xmas gifts. That winter drink from Tertin kartano is really good! We spent our evening by watching Harry Potter movies and drinking this. I´m not sure what was better.. HP or the winter drink... :D

The only things I bought from the Bik Bok and All other things were from GT, The Body Shop, Glitter or H&M.

Getting to the gym :)

Resting after my favourite one: The one and only Hip Thrust

It has been a time for shopping, having a good time and training. I´m going to the gym tomorrow too with Anni. I like going there with some company. Especially now I´m really pleased with myself. My mouth is much better now so I can continue training again. The pain in the gym is so much better than the one from toot removal or menstruation! :D Because I´m still in Mikkeli and I haven´t got my running shoes with me I can´t go running. That´s a bit pity because the weather is just optimal for that fun. I really thought it would be -27 degs from now on but I guess I was wrong... :D I don´t know how to survive having my too warm Jeane Blush's Tove parka on... Let me show you something I had to order from A new Linni Jacket from Jeane Blush. I absolutely love it! All I have to do now is to keep my fingers crossed so that it arrives to my parents address before I have to leave! One thing that´s still on my shopping list are the sparklers and champagne!

Waiting for the New Year's Eve

I want those shirts in every possible colour... They are just so super comfy and warm and their knit looks really nice. I have to go to GT tomorrow morning!

A good and tasty breakfast :)

A beautiful morning! 

I have eaten too much chocolate during this week... and I mean really. Too much is too much.

She is watching on us ;) 

It is just so beautiful, I can´t get enough of watching it!

Some sister time :)

Laughing, beautiful weather, going to the gym with Sanni, eating chocolate and other great meals with my family, watching movies and Disney cartoons, sleeping in new beautiful and clean sheets, playing with my little cousins, doing a makeover to my goddaughter Amina... This week has been fabulous! I have been able to spend my days with my cousins, family and other relatives from Mikkeli and Helsinki. Happiness... that´s what I´m truly fulled with now. Soon it will be a New Year's Eve too. A celebration that has always been my favourite one. There´s no day that could be better than New Year's eve. It has always been really important to my family and our relatives. We usually get gifts, drink, eat and shoot fireworks. It´s like a big birthday party that is mutual to us all. Since I have grown up, I have celebrated it with my friends instead of my family. Still I always call everyone to wish them a happy new year through phone. I just can´t wait this New Year's eve to come! :) It just sounds so tempting to be true :)

A story time


A new peplum shirt from Lindex. I love it!

 Here I am working on a christmas eve. I don't mind having a 9,5 hours shift at all because it will end at 6.30pm and I will have enough time to go to the gym and then watch "Once Upon a Time". I love the way people are at least once in a year in a good spirit! Makes my day even better when I not the only happy one :). Even more complete it will be after going to thr gym today too!

I have had such a great week here. I have spent it mostly with my lovely family and friends. I was so excited to see Sanni on Friday. We decited to go to Amarillo instead of Parnells this time. It was really nice to catch up again. After a while her friend Aino came there too and we headed to Emma where we met a bunch of others. We had planned to go out but because everyone was either hangovered or dead tired we just watced a movie before heading to the bed.

Yesterday consisted of les mills bodypump and bodybalance workouts with my Sanni. I left from the gym in a little rush so that I could pick up the keyes and meet Elina after that. We decided to eat something before making a little tour in shops... I got myself a new blender. Kaboom!

Now I must continue working this hard before I can go to the gym, take a nice hot coconut bath and relax at the sofa to all xmas programs and eat ginger breads that I made yesterday - Happy Holidays to everyone!

Some dentist fun

Thank God my camera had that dirty spot on it´s lens... I look like a Mr. Bean (ok I don´t but the molds always remind me of Mr. Bean?) except that the "mole" is on my forehead.

Chocolate... Me and my sisters took care of these... :D

A TV serie I´m addicted to at the moment... My days have passed by watching this is my bed.

Something I had to buy... and something that will inspire me the next year :) I hope it will be even better than this one has been!

Something new for my home... A sneak peek ;) The rest is still on my to do - list.

I was at the dentist on Tuesday. They removed one wisdom tooth. I didn´t even notice when he pulled it away, but the anesthesia was that effective that it even paralized my nostrils. :D Well I have been bleeding since then and I´ve refused to take any pain killers. Luckily it doesn´t even hurt like the menstruation pain does O.O right? The very best thing is that I am not allowed to exercise any day soon now, but I think that I will try to go to the gym tomorrow... But maybe not because I haven´t been able to eat normally so I have no energy to enything physically demanding... Lucky me I just arrived to Mikkeli today and left my non-broken guitar to Kuopio. My second one has to get the new strings... :) At least playing it is not something that can pop up my stiches? Haha I doubt that... because the amount of excitement that I have now... is enormous. I can´t stop smiling even if it hurts... :)

EUROTRIP 2012 - PART 6 - from Jablanica to one Split banana!

 A city called Jablanica (In Bosnia & Herzegovina) got it's name from the big lake called Jablanica. This is though just a river that goes through the whole city and it´s surroundings. It´s just one amazing place to visit :) So green, sunny and so turquoise! It was unbelievably beautiful to stay there.

H sent postcards from everywhere... She collects them herself too and puts them inside the wardrobe doors. So every time she changes her clothes it takes just a second to travel far away- Split belongs to Croatia nowadays. :) We stayed at a student couple's home for 10 days, it was only 130€ per a nose and we had everything in there- spices, wash machines, three beds, TV, a kitchen and most importantly a grocery shop, beach and a city center were a stone's throw away!

From Bacvice beach - it is the only beach with this tiny sand. We prefered this one because the rest of them had too big rocks. We love rocky beaches only if the rocks are small because then the water is so pure and clean and you can pick up the sea urchins and little crabs from water. Black sea urchins are really in common in Adriatic sea- they are a sign of a clean water and they are not dangerous. If you step on one though pick a raw fig from tree and put it's milk at the place you have spikes on, that´s how you can get rid of them easily (Usually we "locals" know the tricks to everything ;) ) !

One day out! We were out every day- this was really a refreshing custom... :D

Because every pose shouldn't be the same?

This was one of the coldest evenings we had! We don´t actually know why because the thermometer stayed the same every night...?

At the Diocletian's Palace... The best place in Split!

I had to pretend that I'm one of the sailors- I love the sailor-look. - H

Climbing on Palace walls... They were pretty high and my shoes were slippery... - H

 As you can see, we are born monkeys.

Palace is full with high quality restaurants, shops, entertainments and cafes. Prises were lower than in Sarajevo and that really was as a surprise because in other seaside towns the prices have been higher every year.

 And the light... it was so beautiful.

The meaning of this is "Goodbye to the cowboys"

Palacinke! We took the chocolate filled ones ;)

Stray cats and dogs were everywhere... Sad thing was that the most of them suffered from cat flue...

Riva- the main street in Split.

Something we order all the time in Bosnia and Croatia - Pudding !

And some best cider... :)

Why can't we be as tanned as then?

A kiss for my bebis. - H

Our every day supplements... We couldn´t wake up without drinking these first every morning in Bosnia and Croatia... :)

You have a Bosnian street even in Split. It just reminds us all about Bosnian former history as a Kingdom.

This evening was silly... we just took some silly photos and laughed at them... :D

We decided to dedicate one day to shopping... Well it really was one of the best days on this trip! We got many new clothes and shoes to stuff in our luggage... :)

At the city harbor.

This as definitely our favorite cafe! We came at least once a day here to eat a piece of New York cheese cake and drink a latte. They automatically knew what we wanted so we could just sit down and wait for the service... :D

...and it was the only place we had a perfect access to the internet.

O.O We have to go there again just to get a piece of that New Yorker!

Heading to the beach! We woke up early ever single day.

It was absolutely breathtaking for two reasons. 1. The view was so beautiful 2. We had to climb up o the rocks... 

Cooling it down... :)

A model of Split.

New shoes from Sarajevo!

Place where happened all the time... Fire show was our favorite!

The last day when Evelina arrived and our journey as Three Little Musceteers began!

We took a bus from Sarajevo to Split. A buss drive took too many hours because it stopped almost everywhere. At least the views across Bosnia and Croatia are always something you can just admire despite the late schedule... Jablanica was so beautiful, the driving between the mountains and next to the Neretva river were unbelievable. The rocky terrain, old abandoned houses, sheep and wild horses in Herzegovina... beautiful. 

We arrived to Split and headed to our apartment... Well we taught it would be a easy task to walk there and drag all that luggage but guess what happened. My bag went broken and we had to drag all uphill, in (+45 in the shadow so it was too much in the sun...) the sun shine along the slippery pavement... We felt like heroes when we arrived to our destination! We still had to find a grocery store and get ourselves something to eat. At least that was easy! :) 

Rest days passed by waking up before it was too hot to walk, eating a breakfast, getting ourselves ready for beach, packing lotions and some food for the beach in our cool bag and laying on the beach, swimming, playing hand ball with an old local grandpa and his four nieces, checking up the zebra fishes swimming between our legs, smelling like two little coconuts and sipping refreshing drinks and eating good local food! It was really relaxing to read books or listen to the music and feel the warm sun on the skin.

After all beach fun we took a shower, got ourselves ready and headed to the town. Cafes, shops, bars, outdoor entertainments and cute little picnics made our evenings complete! Split was the only place where we bumped into creepy people, the beggars who said "Suck my d*ck" at croatian language to the tourists to get money and the street musicians who didn´t let you take photos of the street if they were playing there, they rather shout to you that "whores" are not allowed to take photos of them and that all tourists should stuck their cameras up to their asses. :) That´s how polite some of the locals were... So it´s better not to give money to the beggars and to the musicians... at least not in Split. They really knew how to ruin the holiday if you bumped into them :)
