Hot, Hot, Hotter...

I don`t understand... It seems to be mission impossible to find a decent looking electric water kettle. I`m not a coffee drinker but I like tee. Because I haven`t found the water kettle that I like so every morning I boil some water for my tee in an old kettle. Aargh... is there something wrong with me...

Well, I did find a beautiful looking water kettle but unfortunately it`s not electric...

If I Had...

If I had my own office or at least my own study room, these three things would probably be hanging on the walls.

Mix It Up!

I have a new mixer in my kitchen. I´ve obviously been a good girl this year because a week ago I received this new Kenwood Hand Mixer from the new kMix range. Thank you for the lovely present!

I tested the mixer a week ago when my friends came over to celebrate the coming christmas. Yep, we were early this year! Last night I decided to test the mixer again and baked a chocolate cake to my mom to thank her for loaning me her cake pan (I know it sounds stupid but I don`t have my own cake pan). So, this time, instead of an empty cake pan I`m going to give her this delicious chocolate cake. Thanks for the cake pan loan, Mom!

P.S. The new Hand Mixer from Kenwood is Superb!

Decora spotlight from Massive.

KULLA floor lamp from Ikea has been the only light source in my living room for two months now and I still love it.

Greetings from Finland

We are living the darkest time of the year here in Finland but there is no need to get depressed. This being my first post I want to present you a beautiful lamp called TRE, by Finnish designer Elina Järvinen.

TRE is a lamp with two qualities that every lamp should have. It gives light without dazzling and it is visually pleasing with or without light. TRE lamps are made in Finland.
