HOW DO I RELAX AT HOME?


Relaxing is super important, if not for your physical health (which it is) but most certainly for your mental health. It's good to stop and sit down at a times. Today I decided to share with you how I relax at home.

LUSH TANGLED | REVIEW


So this one was the impulse purchase what I was talking about my previous Lush haul back in July. I bought this Tangled Hot Oil Treatment because well, my hair tends to get tangled pretty often and way too much and I was wondering if there was anything that would help my case.

FAGERSTA, SWEDEN


We arrived at J's cousin's house before 9 in the evening on the 18th of July. Oh, my goodness, his cousin and his wife have such a beautiful home. It's just incredible. They bought it two weeks before we arrived there and they still had the whole renovation process going on but oh my god that is going to look amazing. I hope we'll have a chance to visit there again after everything is finished.

THE INCREDIBLE FACE GEL | MAY BEAUTY*


Lovely Helmi, from MayBeauty Finland, reached out for me as she had found out they've given me an opportunity to review their Incredible Face Mask earlier but my skin wasn't happy about it at all, so I wasn't able to do a review. I mean, the face is the thing - I don't want to sound selfish, but hey - it's my face. She reached out for me and offered another opportunity to try out their products and yeah guys, this is a collaboration post!

DINO’S 1ST SHIP TRIP | TURKU-STOCKHOLM


On the 18th of July, we woke up at 3:30 in the morning and started our drive to Port of Turku. Fun fact: J had told me that the ship will be leaving at 7:15 in the morning and we should be there two hours before because we had a car and we were driving it into the ship. Long story short, I looked those tickets 20 minutes before we arrived in Turku and found out that our ship was leaving at 8:15 in the morning instead of 7:15. Gosh, he heard so much about that inconvenience because we had only slept two hours before leaving at my mother's house.

STRAWBERRY-MARSHMALLOW-CHOCOLATE STICKS


Hey, everyone!
Today I've got so super simple and tasty recipe for you guys that it makes me crave these even though I'm only writing the recipe for them. What would be a better combo than strawberries, marshmallows and chocolate? I say nothing. Damn these are delicious! And perfect for summer picnics with some Prosecco.

LEINEPERI


Jenni and I tend to do these little photo shoots whenever I'm around at my hometown. Usually, because of her, I can allow myself to get on the other side of the camera - I've known her for almost 20 years so I can feel pretty comfy when she's taking pictures of me.

LOSING THE ”BABY WEIGHT” | 3RD MONTH UPDATE


As some of you might remember, three months ago I shared some thoughts about losing the baby weight. You can check the post by clicking here and get it back to your mind. I thought that some progress story would be pretty fun to share, so let's go.

YYTERI BEACH | PORI, FINLAND


I took my hubby for the very first time to my childhood favourite place. I've spent there countless of hours during my summers and I was super excited to head back after 5 years. The weather was amazing and everything was just perfect. Although, we didn't go swimming because the sea water was freezing!

MY BLOGGING GOALS | AUGUST 2017


Okay, the first of all I seriously can't believe that its August already. And the second of all, I feel like Christmas just was and D was just born, but in 4 months will be Christmas and D's first birthday is going to be in 6 months. Time flies by so crazy fast and I'm not so sure I've achieved anything this year. Yeah, this is the month when I'm starting to think what I've done with my life this year.

LUSH HAUL | IN PICTURES


I spoiled myself and ordered some goodies from Lush last month. Okay, okay. I was running out of several products like hair conditioner, shampoo, shower gel and facial cleanser. So Tangled is basically my only impulse purchase in this haul. I wanted to do something different than a usual haul. This will be one without explanations, just in pictures. I hope you'll enjoy and no worries, I've planned detailed reviews of them all.

3 WAYS TO DRINK YOUR WATER


Even though the Finnish tapwater is pretty damn tasty and clean, I still want to cheer up the water I drink sometimes. It tends to get a bit boring to drink only the water, so I gathered around three ways you can enjoy your water and change the taste of it.
Now when it's summer and all, it's super important to stay hydrated. Also, in other ways than with alcohol, so here we go - my three things you can add into your water if you don't like the taste of it and you need to drink some more.

5 MONTHS | DINO


When this blog post will be published and D's 5th-month update will be live and able to be read we're happily on a ship heading back to Finland. This past week in Sweden has been wonderful, but I'll get back to that later in another post.

3 REASONS WHY I LOVE SUNDAYS


Sundays are the best days in the week. Although, it's the last day of the week and Monday is getting closer and closer, there are still reasons to enjoy Sundays.

CAULIFLOWER PIZZA


We've done this lovely cauliflower pizza for a couple of times already and it's so tasty and super simple to make. Even though it doesn't beat the original pizza but this is a great healthy way to have one if you've been having pizza too many nights in a row. And yeah, we might have a tiny issue with pizza eating this summer but holy potato, it's pizza for f's sake.

HOMEMADE MEAT SUB


My hubby loves filled sandwiches so I decided to try to make my own sub at home. It was pretty easy and quick so it was the perfect way to do something quick for dinner. Sometimes I have these lazy days when I don't feel like cooking anything and filled sandwiches were the perfect way to fix something.

BERRY SMOOTHIE


Nothing is more refreshing on this hot summer than a berry smoothie, right? I'm going to share my favourite with you guys today! This one includes two of my favourites - strawberries and blueberries. There's never enough strawberries am I right?

MY EVENING SKINCARE ROUTINE


As we've created a routine for Dino, I've been trying to create one for myself also. It's just that I honestly, swear to potato, am bad with having some sort of routine in my life.
If I was a single mum my little potato would not have any routines, it's basically J who's keeping them up. I'm so bad at them. So now, I've tried to create myself an evening skincare routine and the best part is that J is making me keep up with it. Just to learn some damn routines! Haha.

Here I am, writing a chatty blog post after a really, really long time. I've got a cup of coffee on my right side, laptop on my lap and GossipGirl on from the TV. I don't know where to begin.

5 THINGS I LOVE ABOUT SUMMER


There are so many things to love about summer. Summer is such a lovely time, everything's warm, drinks are cold and people seem a whole lot happier. Well, that's not a surprise, the sun does tend to make people happier or so I've heard. It's time to list some things I love about summer.

GRILLED MUSHROOMS


Grilled mushrooms are something that I do each Summer. Or well, not just on Summer. I make them in Winter as well. We don't have a grill in our place but these are simple to make in the oven as well. I did these in the oven, but this recipe fits perfectly for a BBQ evening.

MY BLOGGING GOALS | JULY 2017


I can't believe that it's this time of the month again. And hey, what on Earth? It's seventh chapter in the book of 2017 already. Where does all this time go? Where? Where does it go?
We've got such a busy month this month. Half of it, we're going to spend over at Sweden and the other half of it is going to be mostly at my mum's. How did that happen? Anyhow, without a further ado - let's roll on to the goals I've created for this month.

AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO...


... draws flowers during phone calls?
... smells candles instead of burning them?
... applies foundation with fingers?
... hates when plans change in short notice?
... is always late?
... wears the same shoes until they're so broken that they can't be used anymore?

HEY-OO, we're 4 months old today! I can't believe it has been already four months when our little bundle of joy decided to come around. Time freaking flies. Naps have gotten shorter and nights of sleep have gotten longer. It's time for D's 4-month update.

5 THINGS TO DO ON A RAINY DAY


Rainy days are the part of the Summer, that's a thing we all need to accept. Although, here it seems like two weeks is nice, sunny and warm and rest of the Summer is just cold and rainy. That's why I'm sharing my top tips to survive from rainy days and find something to do.

10 THINGS THAT ARE MAKING ME HAPPY AT THE MOMENT


Times like this, we need to cherish those little happy moments in our lives. I've had a hard time being happy lately. I know, I've got everything okay - baby is happy, healthy, fed, he got clothes on and he's been behaving nicely. I've got a wonderful husband by my side and amazing friends. Then again, there are days when I just want to roll myself to my blanket and never come out, curl up there and eat endless amounts of junk food just because I hate myself. So it's important to stop thinking what are the things that are actually making me happy and that's why I'm going to share my list with you and couraging you to think, what does make you happy?

OATMEAL CUPS FOR BREAKFAST


You all know the Facebook page called Proper Tasty by now, I believe. If you don't, have you been living under a rock? Haha. Well, I have never tried any of their recipes, even though I've wanted so I decided to go with easy one for my first try and that's how I ended up trying granola cups with yoghurt and berries.

2017/06/19

MY SUMMER MAKEUP LOOK


I do wear makeup all year round, except when I'm abroad and if I'm travelling to somewhere warm like Spain for example. There I won't use makeup, just to get some tan in my face haha! Anyhow, summer in Finland is cold in a way that makeup can be pretty easily used and everything won't fall off your face.

INK INSPIRATION | HAVING A TATTOO FEVER


I've got a massive tattoo fever at the moment and long story short, I'm about to get one this summer. I'm not going to tell you what it is yet, but I decided to gather around a post about ink inspiration. They say, tattoos should always have a story behind them but to be completely honest, mine is not going to have a story behind it. It's something I enjoy and want and yes, I'm prepared for it being on my skin for the rest of my life.

100 PLACES I WANT TO VISIT BEFORE I DIE | PART 1


The travel bug has bitten me and it has bitten me hard. The best part of the whole situation is that I really don't have any money to travel at the moment, like further than Sweden so I decided to gather around this little series I call "100 places I want to visit before I die", of course, there are probably plenty more that aren't going to be mentioned but I'll be listing 100 places where I'd love to travel, at the moment.

MY SUMMER PLAYLIST 2017


It's that time of the year when I share my summer playlist with you guys. This year it contains a lot of Spanish music, rock & pop/punk. Those just get me in the mood and oh, there are also a couple Finnish songs in the mix. I hope you enjoy!

DIY: NEW LOOK FOR IKEA MALM DRAWER


It's time to talk about my dear friend, dc-fix, once again. I like to do low budget changes around the apartment at the times, especially now when I'm basically spending most of my time home with the little one so I tend to get bored with way things look. That's basically the reason why I've dc-fixed most of our things here. And well, because dc-fixing stuff is cheaper than buying a new furniture.

ONE LOVELY BLOG AWARD


Lovely Nora from over at dreamerachiever.com nominated me for this one lovely blog award, thank you, Nora, that's lovely! It had been a while since I last did any of these tags and last February (yeah, I know I'm on time with these) I was tagged in two different award tags so that's pretty cool.

TASTY VEGGIE BBQ STICKS


Today, I'm going to share my favourite BBQ recipe with you. You can do these on the grill or in the oven, I did them in the oven as we don't own a grill. I like to cook all kinds of stuff from vegetables and this, as I said is one of my favourites for the summer. It goes well with meat and stuff and if you don't want to make this only from the vegetables you can also add some bacon or meatballs to the sticks. I find it easier to make sticks only from veggies and for the side something from meat because I'm not able to eat meat.

WHAT’S IN MY BAG? | 2017


It has been quite a while since I've last shared my bag contents over here at the blog. Almost a year ago, to be exact. If you want to see what I had in my bag a year ago, click here, I can promise it's way different than you're now about to see haha!

MY TWO GO-TO HAIR STYLES | MUMMY EDITION


Oh, it's been way too long since the last beauty post appeared over here and it's time, after three months to finally get myself back in the game again and do one of those. Beauty related stuff has been a huge part of this blog ever since I started taking this thing seriously and now they have fallen a bit behind and been replaced with the baby related stuff.

MY BLOGGING GOALS | JUNE 2017


Oh my goodness, I can't believe it's June already. When May was such cold and snowy (which definitely wasn't normal), I'm glad that by the end of the May we got our summer/spring already and we got 20°C degrees. Ah, it's nice when you don't have to wear multiple layers of clothing whenever you're going out.

JACKETS FOR SUMMER | LINDEX BABY MINI HAUL


A few weeks ago we did a little shopping trip and we stopped by at Lindex to check their baby clothing. For some reason, each time I go shopping I come home with a bunch of stuff for Dino but nothing for me. Kind of makes me wonder why! (sarcasm.) Here I am, showing you two most adorable things I found! Ah, these are so flipping cute.

MY BUCKET LIST FOR SUMMER 2017


This is going to be the first summer in a while when I'm not adding travelling to Spain on my summer bucket list, interesting. Interesting, that's what this summer is going to be all about. 
Well, I've got a little bucket list for me to share over here so let's get started!

20 BLOG POST IDEAS FOR SUMMER


I can't believe that we're living the last week of May already. Where did the Spring go? 
For me, June has always been the month that starts Summer. Usually, our summer vacations start in June so that's pretty obvious. Although, I've been on a vacation for a while now, so it sure does feel way different this year. 

For today's post, I decided to gather some blog post ideas for Summer. 
There's never enough of these right?

3 MONTHS | DINO


I can't believe that that little milk monster that is sleeping next to me at the moment is already 3 full months old. It's insane how fast time is flying by, it feels like yesterday when we got back home from the hospital. Okay, maybe not yesterday but a week or so.
