Pick-Me-Ups

As I told before, flu has forced me to stay at home all week and quite frankly I'm done with playing a couch potato and watching TV and Netflix all day. I haven't got fever anymore but voice isn't back yet and I get these aching cough attacks which lead to vomiting. Lovely. But besides that I'm starting to feel more ill and depressed about the fact that I've been so inactive for the whole year, six days of it to be exact. So my laptop has been switched on, and it's been running for two days now - and I do consider that as an improvement. I'm a nerd. And because of this so called improvement in my daily activities at home, I have a new "easy breezy", a bit sea-themed blog layout! Do you like it? And on top of that I must count all my other activity around the web; I haven't visited this many blogs in a long time. But I haven't been surfing around blogs exclusively. There's also some been some online boutiques, where I've been searching for inspiration for home - turquoise and/or chevron pieces. With a lack of nice towels & other stuff (and in desperate need of a little pick-me-up) I made H&M Home order last night! Oh almost forgot, since our house gets new windows during this week I was forced to clear out wide area in front of every window of this house. Might sound easy but you haven't seen our home, there's furniture and random stuff everywhere. Plus this f*ing cold I have. I'm sweating like a pig now due all the "heavy lifting"! I really should be proud of myself after all the activities lately, and give myself a medal or something. And, I even got couple DIY ideas when finally had the energy to wash my hair! Cleaner the head, better the ideas. I want to make a kimono jacket and paint two rusted lanterns on our balcony. Goood girl.

Here's my picks. Can't wait to receive them already x


Those chevron pillowcases were only 3€ so I took two of them in turquoise-white.
Would have gotten in every colour choice but the limit was two pieces, boo. :)
There's also towels, bathroom carpet, candles and Jack Rabbit-mug.
// Chevron-printtityynyliinat olivat vain kolme euroa joten nappasin niitä kaksi turkoosina.
Harmi että rajoituksena on kaksi kappaletta, olisin muutoin ostanut joka värissä. :)
Mukana myös kylpy-ja käsipyyhkeitä, kylppärin matto, kynttilöitä ja Jänö-Jussi -muki.

FIN: Kuten englanniksi täällä aiemmin on tullut kerrottua, flunssa pakotti minut pysymään kotona koko viikon ja kaikki tämä telkkarin ja Netflixin tuijottaminen sohvaperunana alkaa kyrsimään. Kuumetta ei ole enää ollut muttei kyllä ääntäkään, ja kipeät yskäkohtaukset johtavat lopulta oksentamiseen. Ihanaa. Mutta enemmän tunnen pahaa oloa ja masennusta tästä toimettomuudesta, mitä on tullut koko vuoden alku harrastettua. Joten läppäri käynnistyi ja se on ollut käytössä pari päivää, jee. Niin, lasken tämän edistykseksi. Nörtti. No tämän edistyksen myötä blogini sai uuden ulkoasun, mitä tykkäätte? Ja sen lisäksi pitää ottaa huomioon kaikki muu verkkoaktiivisuuteni; en ole käynyt näin monessa blogissa pitkään aikaan. Mutta en ole surffaillut pelkästään blogeissa, on tullut selailtua myös joitain nettikauppoja, etsiskellen inspiraatiota kotiin - turkoosia sekä/tai chevron-printtejä. Kivojen pyyhkeiden puutteessa (ja vähän muunkin pienen nätin) tein H&M Home tilauksen viime yönä! Ja melkein unohdin, koska talomme saa uudet ikkunat tämän viikon aikana oli mun pakko raivata tilaa jokaisen ikkunan ympärille. Voi kuulostaa helpolta mutta ette olekaan nähneet meidän kotia, huonekaluja ja sekalaista tavaraa joka puolella. Plus tämä himputin lenssu. Hikoilen kuin pikkupossu kaiken "raskaan" työn jälkeen! Pitäisi olla ylpeä kaiken tämän aktiivisuuden jälkeen, antaa itselleni mitali tai jotain. Ja sain jopa pari tee-se-itse -ideaa suihkussa kun oli vihdoin sen verran energiaa että saan tukan pestyä. Puhtaampi pää, paremmat ideat. Tahdon tehdä kimonon ja maalata kaksi ruosteista parvekelyhtyä. Hyyyvä tyttö.

  1. Paljon paranemisia sinne <3 Itsähän tuskailen vaatekaapin kanssa. Syksyllä kaikki oli hyvin, nyt mikään ei istu tai toimi päällä. Raivaushommiin pitäisi siis kaiketi ryhtyä... nyt mietin vaan että mikä tapa olisi helpoin... huutonet, kirppis vai joku blogikirppis hässäkkä. Vai ihan vaan kierrätyslaatikko :D

    1. Kiitos paljon ihana :) Mä en uskalla edes miettiä vaatekaappia tällä hetkellä, tai siis sen karsimista. Kirpparikasat ovat jo valmiiksi niin valtavat että en tiedä mitä näillä kaikilla tekee kun ilmaiseksi en vaan pysty antamaan. (köyhä. :D) Kevätsiivous siis meillä molemmilla edessä ! Rojektii rojektii ;)

    1. Thank you dear. :) I think so too, making stuff improves. I haven't been able to talk so meeting friends hasn't been option until yesterday, it was so fun to meet a girlfriend after looong time and just TALK. :P

  3. Täällä on kans flunssa jyllännyt. Tänään oli eka päivä uudenvuoden jälkeen, kun tuntu olo jo lähes normaalilta. Paranemisia!

    Äääää, ihania juttuja noissa kuvissa! Mun tekis jo mieli täyttää koti kevään väreillä. :>

    1. Vooi, tosi harmi kuulla! :( Meillä on ollut vähän erilainen lenssu, kun kumpikaan ei ole pahemmin joutunut niistämään tms. mitä normaalisti kipeänä on.. Toisaalta hyvä niin ei ole kulunut nenäliinoja ihan niin paljon kuin aiempina flunssakausina! ;) Inhottavaa kyllä tämä kuuma kylmä yskä -olokin. Toivottavasti siellä parannutaan pian!

      Hihii ne on kyllä ihania ja edullisia juttuja. Ja juuri kun klikkailin tilauksen menemään tuli joku koodi että postikulut olisivat ilmaiset ..damn. Mutta en olisi ehkä saanut kaikkia näitä ihanuuksia joten ei voi jäädä miettii tollasta, 5euron menetystä :P Ja kevään värit, todellakin! En kyllä oikein mieti niitä meillä vaan sisustan millä milloinkin. Keväisemmät verhot kuitenkin haluan heti joka ikkunaan, kun vain rahallisesti mahdollista (palkkapäivä palkkapäivä tule jo tule jo ..) ja oikeat löytyvät. :)

  9. Voi, paljon paranemisia sinne! ♥ Ihanan näköisiä sisustustavaroita, täälläkin sisustuskärpänen odottelee jo kevään valoa että saa taas vähän uudelleenjärjestellä muutakin kuin laatikoiden ja kaappien sisältöä ♥

    1. Kiitos paljon Johanna! ♥ Oli kyllä niin paljon valinnan varaa että olisin voinut tilata enemmänkin kuin nämä, mutta kyllä näillä alkuun pääsee kodin sekä itseni piristämisessä. Minusta on kiva sisustella vähän koko ajan, tavara sieltä toinen täältä, mutta nyt oli kyllä pakko tehdä ihan isompikin tilaus ;)

  10. Oh my gosh you really do sound awful and thats such a rubbish way to start the new year,hope your voice comes back soon.Least you've kept yourself busy with some blogging and shopping online,best way to try and relax! I didnt realise H&M did home stuff,and you picked some gorgeous pieces,that would cheer me up knowing I have a package filled with gorgeous goodies to arrive! Get well soon x

    1. Hehe, that's me - awful sounding ;) I think so too, this has been the worst possible way to start new year ! Maybe wont be sick during the whole year then, heh. Oh well I got active after being sick 6 days, so not very productive ..But, I've managed to catch up with blogs so much and do housework so I guess it doesn't matter if I'm useless for week :D Yeah H&M has one Home store in Helsinki too, but I think it's not very inspiring. I've got nice ideas from the online shop and catalogue, and been ordering little things every now and then with fashinon items. This was the very first time that I didn't even peek at clothes etc. !
      Mm I sure can't wait for the package to arrive already :) Thanks dear x

  14. I'm sorry to hear you're not well yet :( hope it will happen very soon though!
    now, when it comes to your H&M Home order it's pretty awesome I must say! those pillow cases, carpet, towels, mug, all is so lovely :) and what a coincidence that we also need bathroom (and toilet) carpets and towels too, badly! our current towels are from ancient stone age, I think. so yeah, I would love to shop in H&M's Home section but hey, we don't have it here in Estonia. boo.

    1. Yeah, it's been quite rubbish lately.. But, getting better by the minute! ^^

      Aww thanks so much, I'm so pleased myself too. Our towels are so outdated too, so I just had to get something nice. Still need curtains, bed linens .. All things necessary:) Too bad you don't have the home section, maybe some day in the future! If you visit Helsinki any time soon there's Home-store in Aleksanterinkatu. ^^ Not all that inspiring place but you can get most of these stuff there, I think.

    1. Hehe, it hasn't actually always been! And there's loads of items that I don't really like / look cheap, but managed to grab the most "hip" pieces I think; chevron etc. ^^
      Oh that mug is so so cute Jack Rabbit, and only 5 euros too! I hope you make some finds yourself :)
