Happy monday! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Today is officially the first day of fall! How exciting! Fall is my second favorite season (after spring), so I can't wait to start crunching some leaves! Yayyy!   — Minna

watercolor patterns

Sep 19, 2014


Lately, i've been designing a bunch of patterns using watercolor paint, and i'm really loving the result! I'm trying to think of what I could do with these prints...any ideas? I'd love to turn these into fabrics, or maybe even grift wrap!   — Minna 

i am back!

(all photos from my instagram)

Yes yes, I am still alive, do not worry everyone! I got back from Seattle a few weeks ago, but I took some time to get used to "normal" life, but it's gonna be crazy soon because I am actually planning to move back to Seattle in the next 1-2 months! Ahh! So it's been a bit stressful these days, but I am trying to stay on top on things and just stay calm...

Spending the summer in Seattle was so much fun, and I got to visit a lot of places and do a bunch of tourist-y things. I will share more soon!   — Minna

Aug 14, 2014


I've been pretty busy these past several weeks, visiting lots of places, and eating tons of food! I have so many photos to share with you all. I have about two weeks left here in Seattle which makes me so sad, but I will be visiting again very soon! Be sure to follow along on instagram for daily photos of my trip!   — Minna

lady yum macarons

Jul 21, 2014


Last week, I attended the pre-opening of Lady Yum in Kirkland, located right near the waterfront. I have never really tried macarons before, and I must say, they were delicious! They are like crispy pillows of goodness with sweet cream inside, mmm. Lady Yum offers a wide variety of unique flavors like mango habanero and maple bacon, and some classic ones as well which includes my favorite, salted caramel! The shop also features various wine selections and local artisan food products. The doors officially opened last friday, so if you are in the area, I highly recommend you stop by!   — Minna

homemade sauces

Jul 17, 2014


I really want to try these homemade recipes for basic sauces! I never knew some of them were so easy to make! I'm definitely going to try the barbecue sauce and the chimichurri sauce. Yummm!   — Minna

I was in awe when I saw this creative project by Alice Mourou, Dmitriy Petrov, Olesya Korsak, and Nikita Schukin. All I can think of is how long this must of taken! The end result is just beautiful!

around town

Jul 15, 2014


I've been eating a lot these days... haha I won't be surprised if I gain a lot of weight by the time I get home! Going around downtown and visiting little shops has been so much fun! Be sure to follow me on instagram to see where i'm going!   — Minna  

summer hair

Jul 14, 2014


My hair has gotten very long, so lately i've been trying to find ways to creatively tie up my hair when I am feeling too lazy. I am contemplating whether or not I want to chop all my hair off, but like always, I tend to regret it afterwards... What is your favorite hairstyle at the moment?   — Minna
