The Friendly Bunch Blog Hop (#17)

Hello my Beauties,

how was your weekend? Did you celebrate midsummer? If you did, please let me know in the comments below – how. I’m really interested in knowing how different (or maybe the same) midsummer takes place in other countries.
I know in some of them, like the Scandinavian – it’s a huge fun event, which is celebrated by everyone.
Midsummer is often the starting point the long summer holiday.

It usually includes bonfires, generous feasting (the meal often consist of: herring, new potatoes and fresh berries like lingonberries and cloudberries with fresh cream), drinking, songs and very late nights outside…
The folklore behind the holiday, as far as I know, has its roots in pagan summer solstice rituals seeking fertility, as well as banishment of evil spirits.
Unfortunately i’ve been quite busy working over this weekend, but i still enjoyed the lovely weather with my friends, fresh sushi, a lot of wakame seaweed salad and homemade lemonade in the evenings. Yeay!
Now it is time to get on with The Friendly Bunch Blog Hop.



This week we do not have any co-hosts. If you are interested in co-hosting, please email Nia.

In the share section today, we have a nail art tutorial which we absolutely love. The colours are amazing, and the finished product looks very interesting. It was inspired by the 2013 movie “The Great Gatsby” and we think that Maria did a fantastic job in making it into nail design.
