1) Frannerd Illustrator and Youtuber – I actually stole this idea for monthly favourites from her. I hope she’s not upset 😳 (sorry and thank you). I adore her personal illustration style and charismatic Youtube artist persona. 2) Balcony – I’m moving to a new flat in September which has a balcony. 3) Taco Nitos Taco Tuesdays – Their gluten free vegetarian tacos are tan ricos. 4) Sleep With Me -Podcast in Spotify. 5) Julieta – Almodovar’s new film. Perfect story telling, fantastic performances, enjoyable colour scheme. And it was such a special experience to see it with my mom. 6) Designing Patterns – Book by Lotta Kühlhorn. 7) Jazz dance classes – Autumn semester started after summer break. 8) Gluten free cake – cafe Agata opened in Helsinki (Annankatu 22). 9) Braids – My hair is finally long enough to make this crown like hairdo again. 10) Mänttä Art Festival – Amazing art all over Mänttä.
