About Me

I am 27-year-old women from Helsinki, Finland. I crew up in countryside in middle of two lakes and forest. I love art, design, fashion, good food and wine. I'm designer and my focus is on fashion. Currently I am interested in styling, visual merchandising and marketing.

I am very tidy and I am comfortable at home. It is my safe place where I can relax so hopefully my future guest will appreciate same values and respect my home because I will be grateful for the person who hopefully will let me stay at her/his place.

During my free time I like to go for run, swimming or do some yoga. I like cooking in company because the food tastes better when you share it. I have been vegetarian past 15 years and I have my very own diet what I follow but I am not unconditional about everything (still not going to eat any meat in any circumstances) and by that I mean I love cheese and ice cream.

Art museums, live music and movies are great past time activities what I enjoy to do both with my friends or by myself. During summer outdoor events are wonderful or just going to park with a book and cup of take away coffee makes me happy.

Music, Movies, and Books

It depends a lot of my mood and current time of year what kind of music I listen but mostly indie rock and pop and electronic music. But I love to listen jazz in lazy sunday mornins (I love Erykah Badu) or when I go for running I put it on The Black Keys and Royal Blood. For examples lately I have listened a lot of Alt-J, Moderat, Frank Ocean and Fosters The People.

Few of my favorite movies are: Only Lover Left Alive, Drive and Inception.
TV-series: Breaking Bad, True Blood, Grey's Anatomy (first 6 seasons)

What comes for books it is pretty much same as music, depends my mood. One of my favorite writers are Dan Brown, Paolo Coelho, Haruki Murakami. During summer I like to read something easy and in winter it is really dark and cold in Finland so Tolstoi is dark enough, lol.
