thoughts and happiness

I have been thinking a lot lately...more than I should I think. And does it change anything, does it give me anything? Does it make me happier? No, not my resent thoughts. I found a very good saying today, a quote that really has a point. My happiness depends on my thoughts. So, I try to remember that and I try to think of happy thoughts :)

“Happiness does not depend on what you have or who you are, it solely relies on what you think.” - Buddha

Marilyn Monroe

I feel like I have been cut off the music world. How I hadn't heard of Nicki Minaj's song "Marilyn Monroe" before? Yeah, I discovered it few days ago and I have been listening to it ever since :) I like that song!

so it's Friday

Like I said yesterday I wanted to bake a cake. And I did. It was good, but nothing so special. Very easy to make and the taste was good too. I don't know if I will ever make that cake again, who knows. But I usually like to try out new recipes. And then there are few that are my fav and I have made these a number of times!  I regret that I made a big cake yesterday coz if I am eating alone I get sick of cake. I mean, how much cake can one person eat? Anyway, like I said I am going to post a photo of the cake I made: 

Since yesterday was a day off (yay!) I also spent time on my little hobbie - painting. I hadn't painted for a while, but I had two empty canvas at home, so I decided to get my hands muddy with colors! :) So, here is the outcome: 

It's Friday today and I want to listen to music, read a book and just relax because tomorrow will be more active - I need to clean the whole apartment!
Oh, by the way, I am going to bake another bread! Yeah, my second one. I hope it'll be tasty! 
I just have to mention how happy I am that Jay is coming home on Sunday! I'm so excited! He said we are going todo something extra fun together! I cannot wait to spend time with my fiance!

puppy love and cake search

The more I think about it and the more I have to be alone I want a puppy!


Oh! This week has been pretty crazy. I have done quite much homework which is good. I only need to study for history's test that's one Tuesday. Jay comes home this Sunday and while he's here I don't want to spend my time on studying. All I wanna do is to be with him! :) I miss him a lot, as usual.
The other day I watched a movie "Intouchable". It was soooo good! I highly recommend it! 
I read yesterday that my fav book author Cecelia Ahern has written a new book called "One Hundred Names". I cannot wait to order it and read it! I still haven't finished "Plain Truth" by Jodi Picoult because I had to read a book for university. But I finished it now and I plan to spend most of my time today on my bed and read! So good! I also want to bake a cake later. The only thing is that I can't find a good recipe. I want to try something new. And since I am lazy and don't want to go to foodshop then I must do with the ingredients that I have at home. Sooo, oh, I better keep looking for a perfect recipe. And the photo of the cake will appear in the next blogpost ;)

viva weekend

I finally got my Maybelline Pink Punch lipstick! I love it! 

Lately I have been thnking of puppies a lot. I know I can't have one because I live in apartment right now, but I still want one sooooo much! 

Isn't she cute? Wish I had a puppy as a present. Would be the BEST one ever!

Two weeks of uni are over. It has been nice, but a lot of homework. This weekend I want and need to rest and relax! I don't want to do any homework, except read a book for one class. Other than that I want to watch tv, lay on the bed whole day, eat sweets and so on :) I need to gain energy for next week!
Jay is coming home next Sunday! I cannot wait. I REALLY miss him!

Oeh, I supposed I am going to clean the apartment and then I'm going to foodshop and THEN I'll start relaxing and doing nothing! Viva weekend!

Jay came home on Friday. I couldn't wait till my uni ended so I could see Jay. He came to my uni and we went out to have a lunch at this new Asian diner, called Panda Express. They gave us fortune cookies too! Yay!

Me, Jay and our friends went to Jay's friend's birthday party to Pärnu. It was fun there! It was at such a beautiful place, we all had a room and beds and stuff. They even had food there! Next day Jay didn't feel so great of course, but we arrived home safely around 2pm. Then we had lunch at Lido and went  home. So, we were at home the whole day and today has been pretty much the same. We only went to the foodshop and I also went to cheer on the my mom and dad. They were running 10 km at SEB Autumn Running Day. 
I just finished making pasta salad. O'boy how much I made it!!! Jay will take it to Finland with him too, so he can eat it there too.
Yeah, I think I am going to watch tv and just rest. "Hungover" is on tv tonight. I haven't seen the first part, so I wanna watch it tonight!

chocolate ice-cream therapy

I came back to Estonia today. I thought I won't be very sad coz Jay is coming back home on Friday already...but nah, I was wrong. I started missing him the second I got home :( Thank God I went to the shop before coming home and bought Ben&Jerry's was the New York Super Fudge Chunk good! It's basically a chocolate ice-cream with white and dark fudge chunks, pecans, walnuts and fudge covored almonds. Doesn't it sound delicious? It's of course very sweet, so I ate only a bit of it. But seriously, it was a very good therapy. So, next time I miss Jay I will have some more of that! By the way, what I love is that every Monday one flavor of Ben&Jerry's ice-cream is 50% off. You never know what flavor it is, but today was my lucky day coz my fav New York one was on sale! :)

signs of autumn

I was walking in Finland the other day and I saw a giant fly mushroom...and then after that I have noticed that there are soooo many fly mushrooms in Finland. I am gonna post some photos I took of them!

I'll post here some more photos that I have taken:

I have mentioned before that I love burning candles. I burn them whenever it gets dark!

I love jars of candies. I gave this one for Jay for our 2 years anniversary!

I love these flowers...they always remind me of autumn because when I was younger my teacher always got these flowers on 1st September when we went back to school :)

Signs of autumn!

I had this simple but delcious fruit salad for lunch few days ago!

so the days went by

Last couple of days I have been going to Willa shopping center because of the big sales there. I have purchased some things for me! Today I got this pretty nailpolish by Rimmel London, it's called apricot punch! It wasn't as matt as I thought it would be, but I still love it. But what I love even more is this amazing nail polish remover. It smells like an apple and there's no bad smell of the acetone in the room or on my fingers. There was also a strawberry one, but I chose the apple one because I thought maybe the strawberry one would be too sweet...Anyway, I got it with a very good price, only 1 euro. And what I didn't first think about, but came up with now, is that Jay HATES when I am about to remove my nailpolish because he can's stand the bad acetone smell. But now he won't even notice the smell and I don't have to go to another room just to remove my nailpolish! Yay!
Well, yesterday when I got to the Willa I bought a new hairbrush. I needed one for a while, but I hadn't found the one I really like and that didn't cost a fortune. So, yesterday I found one that was 50% off, so I got it with 5 euro only. And it's professional hairbrush by Elite Models. There were three colors of it - black, white and silvery. I bought the last one, coz it looks so different and really glamouros :P
I also got a laptop lap pad which I have been wanting for sooo long, but I just hadn't found one. So, I got one now with only 10 euros! Yay! There were all black and white ones...and then just one blue. I got the blue one coz it's less boring and it's a very pretty blue by the way ;) So, now I can use my laptop when I'm on the bed and I don't have to worry about it getting over heated and too hot. You can use this lap pad for eating a little bed table or so.
And the other day I bought a very good smelling shower creame' by "I love" brand. It smells like bubble gum :) And I got it with only 5 euros :) I will probably add some photos here later when I get back home ;)
So, these are the only things I purchased and I am very happy with them all! :) Love shopping! I thinkI needed that because I know that university starts in few days and I will be busy and my mind will be all other things and I won't probably even think of shops and stuff I need or want (which is actually very good! Helps me save some money!).
Oh yeah, I am going home tomorrow. I will arrive in Estonia 3.30pm. Then I gotta go to the foodshop and then I'll head home. First, I gotta make myself a dinner (I can already imagine how hungry I am when I arrive home!) and then I wanna bake an apple pie to celebrate the beginning of a new schoolyear :)
I just have to put this photo of hot chocolate with marshmellows here, because this is the drink I have been craving for for the last couple of days. I want to make hot chocolate at home, it's on my to-do list ;)
