High Five for Friday

Another Friday, another working week turning into a weekend. I can't believe how quickly time goes, it's November already! Friday also means sharing my top five things from this week as it has become a custom. Lauren is behind this brilliant link-up.

Number one: Ikea

I just really the store. I sometimes go there with no errand to run, just to walk through the upstairs rooms. And I always seem to leave with something. Now I've got fabric for me going-to-be bedroom drapes, among other things.

Nubmer two: 007 Skyfall
Only one word: Brilliant. You should definitely go see this one asap. I loved the song, like I said to you already, and the film... genius.

Number three: Nutty banana cake with friends
So here is MY banana cake, instead of just the promo photo. In the process of translating it into English, but it's coming up. It was delish and it was a great night with friends when we cut into this cake too.

Number four: Approaching Christmas
This is first of series of two Christmas magazines I order every year. The first is about Christmas food and the latter, published later is about gifts, decorations, traditions etc. I like to start thinking Christmas pretty early on, and getting at least part of the presents in good time. Thinking about that peaceful time ahead helps me to get through the sometimes hectic fall term.

Number five: Benno cd/dvd shelves (and what's in them)
Well, this is actually another IKEA thing, isn't it. But had to post this too, just because it cheered me up a lot. We've had the red shelves for quite a while now and we were running out of space in them. They don't sell the red ones anymore, at least in Finland, so we had to decide to go another way. I got the two black ones on my fabric-for-the-bedroom-drapes run and had an idea how to place them. And I'm really happy about the result! Now my Downton Abbeys and all the other good stuff have enough space around them and it's easier to find what you're looking for.

I'm in a car, on my way to my hometown to visit family for the weekend. I hope you all have a wonderful time in the weekend as well!


  1. im totally down with your 1, 2 and 3!!! i wish we had an ikea closer. i crave their $1 honey buns :) i cannot wait to see skyfall. we are having a baby next week though so unless we get to the theater this weekend, we might have to wait for it on dvd. and that nutty banana cake looks divine!!!

    1. Congrats on your little one on the way! If I'm not wrong, Skyfall premieres in USA on the 9th... Hope you get to see it though! I'm in a happy situation that I only have about a 20-minute drive to my closest Ikea. I'm in there probably more often than it's good for me :)

      Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!
