February Love&Inspiration

my blue&white kitchen

“You will find that it is necessary to let things go
simply for the reason that they are heavy.
So let them go, let go of them.
I tie no weights to my ankles.”

– C. JoyBell C.


Tomorrow, it's March. I still can't really get my head around it. February flew by so incredibly fast... Here are some of my favorites:

» Posts I especially loved this month.

» Let's listen to some great music.

» Interpretations by Veera Välimäki & Joji Locatelli – fine tune and at dawn are my favorite patterns.

» Hello HOMEMADE SPRINKLES! Not kidding, this is totally happening.

» I think I've never told you how much I adore Meryl Streep. And after this, I'm convinced she is one of the most wonderful woman walking on this planet.

» Are you a planner? An organizer? Do you always have too much going on in your head? Yeah, me too. Let's make a spring clean out! Maybe Todoist would be a great tool to get organized? I heard about it on Sara's lovely blog Cake Over Steak and got an account. I'm still learning and getting used to it but so far I've liked it a lot. There is a good blog post about Todoist on the Well.

» New blog crush: Babes in Boyland. Love the mood!

» Eating Healthy on a Budget – A lovely new series by the awesome Stockholm-based David & Luise from Green Kitchen Stories. Their Shakshuka is a stunner!

» This girl knows how to write.

» Had this salad for lunch today. Highly recommended! I also made this crispy rice dish from Smitten Kitchen for a family dinner last weekend and it was delicious! It was so crispy that my dad broke a molar... True story.

» The newly launched Roost blog. Breathtakingly beautiful work by the incredibly talented Caitlin Van Horn.

» I would like to have a cup of marshmallow hot chocolate, please.

» I love to follow how this lady lives her life to the fullest (hello Sydney!). Makes me reflect on my own life – what do I want from life? A very important question to ask oneself from time to time.

» A huge portion of this ice cream would totally make my day.

» Telling a story through a photograph – How To Photograph Food by Haruka Sakaguchi

» I'm making the Brown Butter Chocolate Maple Pecan Cookies from Flourishing Foodie tonight. Brown butter makes everything shine, right?


Hope you have a great weekend!

I'm spending tomorrow in Helsinki with a bunch of dear friends – we'll have a brunch here and laugh hard. I want to find a pair of shoes for spring (something like this, maybe).
