Long dark veins and records playing memories


Happy September lovelies!

An outfit from a weekday night, shot in the attic in the middle of dust, tiles and the sickly buzz of dying flies. Dress is a recent flea market find, jewelry from many places, bag by Minna Parikka and Pennangalan shoes were snapped from ebay. The shoes always make me feel witchy! But then again, it might just be the beginning of autumn that always awakens that feeling.



This week has turned out to be a really nice one, I've deliberately seemed oblivious to negativity even when it pokes me right in the eye. To share a couple of those good things; I found out that Chelsea Wolfe, one of my all-time favourite female singers, is coming to our little Northern country after all! And now I have a precious ticket for the evening! First I thought her tour would skip us but heavens no. I haven't heard Russian Circles before but I'm sure I'll enjoy them, they can't be all bad if they pair up with Ms.Wolfe. And the tour poster is just bleak and beautiful. 


I really recommend this gig if you're into melancholic female voices, dreamy sound landscapes and great talent.




Pizza is also a good source of joy, and this one was heavenly so I just had to share it. Self-picked winter mushrooms, smoked tofu, sliced red onions, sun dried tomatoes and the usual tomato smash on the bottom. And not a single drop of dairy, because I am not a calf. Delicious! I could survive through summer with raw smoothies but autumn makes me long for cooking, especially stews, hot soups and mushroom delicacies. It invokes some dormant homemaker side in me which feels a little scary..



Today I'll be heading towards the woods for berry and mushroom hunting with my mom. I hope the forest will offer us plenty of those treats!

  1. That pizza looks delicious, do you make your own dough?

    1. Yes, I always make it from scratch! It's quick, easy and much more yummier, and I use mainly spelt flour and organic wheat flour mixed up, so it's also healthier than the dough from the store. :) And thank you, I just came back from our first hunting trip and caught a lot of those babies, yay! I can hear the call of the mushroom pie. ^^

    One question: what do you use to prepare your smoothies? I've been trying to find the right device for aaages.

    1. Hello there, and thank you! <3 At the moment I use a stick mixer, but it isn't great. I definitely recommend getting a quality blender if you want to make a lot of smoothies! I've been thinking about investing in one for ages, they make smoothies so much more easily and the outcome is, well, smoother. :) So a really sturdy blender would be the best choice.

    1. Autumn just does that, it feels like everything around you could contain some magic if you look close enough. I'm glad I'm not the only one to feel this way!

    1. Hihi, kumpikin kieli käy mainiosti! Uutta albumia oon kuunnellut muutaman kipaleen verran vasta, onko se jo kokonaan vuotanut nettiin? The Waves Have Come on kyllä ihana. Ja ihanaa että tulee tuttujakin kasvoja keikalle, siellä nähdään kenties! :)

    2. Mä kuuntelin sen ihan laillisesti Pitchforkista advancena :D Toivottavasti nähdään joo! :)

  6. I am quite envious that you're going to see Chelsea Wolfe! I was looking at her tour dates a couple of weeks ago with a sad longing and the amazing poster caught my eye immediately! I wouldn't mind displaying that in a frame! I hope you have an excellent time and if you can break out of the mesmerised state for long enough to snap a few pictures that would be lovely to see! You should definitely follow her on instagram when you manage to find a way around the problem! ♥

    1. At live concerts I much prefer to just absorb the atmosphere and concentrate on the present so I often forget to take pictures, but I'll try to snap a few moments to share. :) And oh, the problem. There's still no solution, but I'm getting there!

  8. Mä taas innostuin tuosta Russian Circlesista sen verran, että pakko päästä tuonne keikalle. Pakko tunnustaa, että Chelsea Wolfea en ole (vielä) kuunnellut. Aion sen tehdä ennen marraskuista keskiviikkoiltaa :)

  9. This food-spiration came at just the right time; I'm working very hard at working the vegan lifestyle into my already vegetarian one. :3

    1. Oh I'm so happy to hear that! I could share some more foods if you like? I'm right there with you on the journey, it's the best path for body and soul alike. ^^

  10. Homemade pizza is the best. Specially when it is vegan! thank you for telling us the ingredients, and what a detail to pick up your own mushrooms, I think it makes it extra delicious.

    And every outfit of yours is so elegant yet simple, also comfy, is that because of the autumn? personally I could not live without black leggings and dark tones tights, but lately I've been including ochre in my clothing, I'm fascinated by the colour of the leaves. You're right, it's some witchy feeling (:

    1. No problem, I'm glad if someone enjoyed the listing! There's plenty of mushrooms growing in the nearby forests so of course I pick them when I find some, I think I might go for a little hunt again tomorrow. :) Organic local food at its best!

      And thank you so much, I do believe that autumn has created some level of comfort in my outfits. Autumn is also the best season in creativity for me so the outfits must abide by those needs. I do not wonder that you've started to include ochre, I think it suits many people so wonderfully although on me it doesn't work at all. Or maybe I'm just too picky on choosing which colour to wear, black seems to be "a little" dominating in my wardrobe. :D

  11. I love how you decorate your home! ♥

    If you can't use Instagram, I can highly recommend "EyeEm". It's a small but very likeable start-up from Germany. There's also a great community of photographers, beautiful filters and you are not limited to squared pictures ;-)
    Well, I like it there.

  12. Oih, haluaisin tuonne keikalle, mutta en varmaan saa sinne seuraa. Vähän sosiaalikammoisena en ole hyvä lähtemään yksin. :(

    1. Minäkin olen yksin menossa, mutta ei se haittaa. :) Onhan siellä kuitenkin porukkaa ympärillä, vaikka toki ymmärrän sen tunteen ettei yksin ole kiva lähteä. Mutta tule ihmeessä keikalle jos haluat nähdä esiintyjät! Muakin saa tulla moikkaamaan jos vilahdan jossain. :)
