WARM BAG FOR THE SAFETY SEAT | BABY’S ONLY

WARM BAG FOR THE SAFETY SEAT | BABY’S ONLY

Just to let you know, having a baby in Winter is pretty interesting. You'll get that wake-up call a month before your due date and realise that it actually is; Winter. Winter means that it's cold outside. Winter means that there's snow outside and the snow outside means that oh, baby it's cold outside. That's something that didn't cross our minds before at the end of the January, sounds pretty ridiculous now when thinking about it later - but at the end of the January, I started to look for snowsuits for babies. Guess what? There wasn't any. Why? Because Spring collections had arrived and all the small sizes had already sold out or there just wasn't any because yeah, the Spring collections have arrived to everywhere. 

So, I started googling for different options and that's how I came across this adorable Baby's Only Footmuff Maxi-Cosi warm bag for the safety seat. It looks great and it's pretty useful when thinking about it. You know, during the Winter it's absolutely wonderful for car drives and shopping purposes. Just put your baby in the warm bag and you're good to go. There's no need to wrap the baby with seven layers of clothing for a long car ride or little food shopping trip - just put the baby in the bag and if it gets hot in there, open the bag. Gosh, I love that thing, not to mention how easy it is to leave the house quickly when you can put your baby in the bag and head out. 


At this point, I should probably mention that this is not a sponsored post because I feel like I'm starting to sound like I'm selling these. No, I'm just way too excited about how convenient this bag is. It makes life so much easier. 

Above, you'll see how it looks inside. The baby can still be strapped in, even though the bag is there - which obviously is a good thing. Wouldn't want to see a flying baby in a bag in a car accident. (Okay, that joke was a bit lame, I'm just going to leave it there.) 

It's just absolutely wonderful. I'm in love.

MY SISTER'S CONFIRMATION PARTY

MY SISTER'S CONFIRMATION PARTY
Confirmation party
- Evangelic Lutheran tradition.
When you're 15-year-old and if you're a part of the church, you go to confirmation camp/school and learn stuff like the Ten Commandments (which no one really remembers after the whole thing) and Heavenly Father prayer. If you pass, you get your wine and bread and you're blessed. In a nutshell. It's an Evangelic Lutheran tradition. Believer or not, most of the Finns who are part of that religion go there and learn those things. I went there too, seven years ago. Holy shit that was a long time ago. All I can remember is that the camp had the most delicious bread I've ever eaten. 


We're not crazy religious family. Or well, we're not religious at all. My grandmother goes to church every Christmas and myself and mum are finding excuses not to go there.  That's all our family invests in these things. Then again, we are part of the church just because we are. In real life, we don't give a shit about those things. With all the taxes we pay for the church, we're basically paying our spots at the graveyard. And well, having the wedding at the church because it's kind of cool.

I mean, I heard that my uncle scrolled through his phone at the church and when the people were supposed to get up, he didn't. Or well, at least at that very second. Oh my, we had a good laugh with that. He's so freaking funny dude.


Anyways, we got to spend a weekend over at my mum's place and it was so much fun. Dino had his first long car ride (2,5 hours) and everything went well. I mean, he slept the whole way there and back so it was pretty chill. When we were coming back he had moved in such a weird position on his car seat so I was a bit worried if he's going to survive (what was I thinking, of course, he survived) but we got home safely.

We also got to go to sauna together with J after two weeks not being together alone and that was pretty amazing. I mean, with a baby you're never alone. He's there, all the time. That's nice and all, but it's also great to have some 'alone' time together with the other half.
Oh, and I almost forgot! My mum & grandma looked after Dino through the whole night so we got to get a good night sleep after two weeks. I was a bit worried how Dino will survive and I had a trouble getting sleep but when I saw him in the morning I noticed that I had been on my "nervous mummy" mode through the whole night for no reason.

The party went fine and it was so nice to see all the relatives I don't get to see that often. Although, most talked topics were Dino, sleeping and not getting any sleep, diapers and my pregnancy weight gain and how my belly is completely gone and I don't look like I gave a birth couple of weeks ago.


On Saturday when we arrived, we went to Puuvilla shopping centre and I found that pretty bodysuit with a bow for Dino for the party. He was such a handsome little fella!
And we also took our traditional selfie picture with my little brother, damn - when did he grew up?

LUSH D’FLUFF SHAVING SOAP

LUSH D’FLUFF SHAVING SOAP

I finally got my hands on this shaving soap I wanted to try out for ages! How? Well, J got it for Christmas for me. I'm so happy it was in stock when he was making the order because every time I tried to place it in my shopping basket - it was always out of stock. 


I need to start by saying that I'm not that good at shaving my legs. I mean, I've never owned a proper shaving gel not to mention a shaving soap so I had no expectations when I first tried this out. After few uses, I was sure I had found the perfect shaving soap. Although, I've got nothing else to compare it to, but this is definitely one I'm going to keep in my pampering routine essentials. 

It smells so good. It includes strawberries and its scent is quite strong and I definitely love everything about strawberries. Oh my goodness, Summer is getting closer and closer and that means that strawberries are getting closer and closer. How many times it's appropriate to use the word "closer" in one sentence? 

This one leaves my legs to feel so silky, smooth and moisturised. I absolutely love this. 

Have you ever tried this out?

DIY: DINING TABLE MAKEOVER WITH MARBLE DC-FIX

DIY: DINING TABLE MAKEOVER WITH MARBLE DC-FIX
I've had this massive need to do little changes around this apartment for these last few months. I don't know if it's because the Spring is just around the corner or is it because I've been on a complete nesting mood during the last weeks of the pregnancy. Also, my hubby has done his part helping me out with my ideas and I'm so thankful for that. Or well, maybe he was afraid that I'd throw a pizza at him if he didn't want to help? Haha, just kidding. 


We have had our dining table for three years now. It was something we bought when we moved from our 30 square meter apartment to a bigger apartment where we were able to actually fit a dining table. Now, when there will be more people over the dining table at some point, we've become to a realisation that some day - we're going to need to buy a bigger one. So far, this has been perfect for our purposes. If you want to see how this table looked before we did this little makeover to it - click here.  

This actually is not the first time I've used dc-fix to make some changes in our apartment. In 2015, I dc-fixed our kitchen and bathroom. We lived in that apartment for over a year and because of stuff that was happening in my life at that moment when I started the bathroom project I never actually finished it. Which is kind of weird, I usually finish all the projects that I start. Anyhow, I love how dc-fix is so easy to use and it brings a whole different look to places where it's used. It's also very cheap, so that's a huge plus too. 


So, returning back to this dining table. I was a bit concerned to use marble dc-fix for the very first time. I've recently fallen in love with marble - I know, three years late from the boom as always - and for me, the hardest decision at this was to choose between these two shades of marble. I really liked the darker one but then again I felt it would look a bit too edgy for a dining table so we ended up choosing the lighter one. I'm really happy that we chose the lighter one, it looks so much better, to be honest.  


I'm so happy with the change. Okay yeah, that's only a freaking 40€ Ikea dining table but it feels like it's completely different. Literally feels like we have bought a new dining table, which is great. New dining table for a little bit over 10€ - not bad at all haha! 

By the way, you should definitely check out Dora's blog for more dc-fix inspiration. She was the reason I got interested in dc-fixing and I really got inspired by her 20€ kitchen renovation which by the way was pretty awesome. Also, she renovated their dining table also which might have been back of my mind since then, so let's all thank her for this little inspiration! 

Have you ever dc-fixed anything?

DELICIOUS & SIMPLE TUNA SALAD

DELICIOUS & SIMPLE TUNA SALAD

This tuna salad has been my go-to salad for this past couple of weeks. It's so simple to make & quick. When storage in the fridge, it lasts for at least three days or so, so it has been super wonderful for the days when J is at work and I'm home with the baby and I need to eat something for lunch. 


INGREDIENTS:

- tuna, duh
- salad
- sweet pepper
- cucumber

HOW TO ROLL WITH IT? 

Mix all the ingredients together and enjoy your salad. 
You can also add some tomatoes and boiled eggs with it if you want to, but I'm not going to. I love it just the way it is haha! 

Let me know if you're going to try this out! It's so simple & delicious like I've said a million times. I should get over myself.
