LUSH AMERICAN CREAM | REVIEW


I lived over three months without a conditioner. I just haven't had the time to order a new one and then I just kept postponing it over and over again and my hair got incredibly tangled. I might be one of those people who can't live without a proper conditioner?

LET'S TALK ABOUT DADS


Today, I'm here to ramble about stuff. This must be one of the deepest blog posts I've ever written on this blog but it will do - sometimes, you have to go a bit deeper to get your voice out.

ZUCCHINI LASAGNA


I did this tasty zucchini lasagna couple of months ago for the very first time and since that it has taken a frequent place to our monthly menu. J absolutely loved it and even my mum said that "hey kid, you can actually cook!" I guess that was a compliment & I'm going to take it that way haha. She has never said anything like that to me before.

7 REASONS TO VISIT FINLAND


Finland is having its 100th birthday this year and that means that I made a promise to myself to include some blog posts about Finland. Finland is a country I'm calling my home, even though there are decisions made by the government that most of us don't enjoy but after all, we've got everything super well here.

5 BLOG POSTS I’VE BEEN LOVING LATELY


It's been such a long time since I've shared anything blogging related if you don't count the goals I share for each month. This time, I decided to share some blog posts I've been loving lately. Like always with these, I don't want to give my own opinions about anything. I'll link the post and small caption of it and you'll see why I fell in love with the post by reading it.

LET’S CHAT ABOUT STATS, BABY


I have been knowingly following my Instagram and Twitter growth for the past month or so. It's because J loves to do graphs so each evening I tell him how many followers I've got on each platform. I've never thought stats are important but when looking at the tweets on my Twitter timeline and what brands want from collaborations - it always ends up with the discussion of stats.

TORTILLA PIZZA


I tried to make tortilla pizza for the very first time and I've got no regrets. I found the original recipe from the Stockmann website but hey, I'm me so I changed it a little. It had all those odd ingredients so I wanted to variate a bit simpler recipe.

I FOUND A PERFECT LAMP TO OUR HALLWAY


So as you might know, it's getting super dark here during the Winter and we really had to do something to our hallway as it's insanely dark. When D's room and our bedroom doors are closed, there is no source of light which is pretty awkward in the situations when you order food for your door and try to pay everything in the dark.

LUSH ANGELS ON BARE SKIN | REVIEW


So many of you recommended me to try this one out a while ago and I decided to give it a go. I was seriously in the business, as I ordered two of these accidentally. So yeah, the recommendation noted.

A DAY THROUGH THE EYES OF DINO


07:15 - Damn I'm hungry, where's mum? What if I make some noises, will she know I'm awake? "Blaablaa". "BA!" She doesn't seem to listen, does she have something better to do right this very moment? There's something in my diaper and it's not feeling very comfortable. It smells weird. Maybe I should yell a little bit louder. "BAA. BA. BABA." Still nothing. What if I scream? "BYÄÄÄH!" Hey, now I hear something.

HOMEMADE GARLIC BUTTER BREAD


I absolutely love garlic butter bread. It's basically the only "white" bread I eat. I found a killer recipe from the amazing world of the Internet and I decided to share my findings. I did some changes to the recipe but they turned out to be delicious!

MY BLOGGING GOALS | OCTOBER 2017


Chapter 10 out of 12 in the book of 2017.
I think it's safe to say that this year has gone by in the blink of an eye. So today, I'm not only writing about my goals for the month - I'm also looking at them as my rest of the year goals. That's why some numbers might seem a little bit higher than usual. I don't know why, but this month I've got this thriving motivation inside of me and I really like to know where it leads me to.

MY TOP3 NETFLIX ORIGINALS AT THE MOMENT


I've been falling in love with Netflix Originals lately and today I decided to pick three of them and well, suggest them to you guys. These all are available at least in Netflix Finland but I don't see why they wouldn't be available in other places as well because everything comes to Finland way slower than in the UK or in the US for example.

7 MONTHS | DINO


I could start this update by telling you how freaking fast the time flies but I'm going to leave the thought hanging there. It's just insane that my little bubba is 7 months already. Or well, today he'll be 7 months and 1 day but who's counting days? Me. For Christmas. 88 days, if you were wondering.

MY TOP TIPS FOR PLANNING BLOG POSTS


I've been asked so many times, "how are you so organised?"
Even though, blogging is purely a hobby for me I'm using more time on planning my content than anything else I'm using time in the whole process. Someone even asked me to teach them, so here I am, sharing my secrets.

SUMMER 2017 IN A NUTSHELL


This summer went by in the blink of an eye. Damn, this whole year has gone. Let's see what all fun things happened this summer.

7 THINGS I LOVE ABOUT YOU | OUR 7TH ANNIVERSARY


Yesterday my hubby and I had our 7-year-mark. I can't believe that we've been together for seven years which almost two years married and almost one year with a baby. I would've never thought when I got in the plane eight years ago, something this wonderful was possible to born. So here we go, seven things I love about him. There would be plenty more but then this post will lose its meaning.

START YOUR MORNING WITH THESE DELICIOUS EGG TOASTS


I did something I've never done before! I cut a hole in a toast and cooked an egg in that hole. If this makes any sense? I'm amazed that it went as well as did, after all - it was my first time.

SWEATER WEATHER | WISH LIST


IT'S THE SEASON PEOPLE, THIS IS NOT A DRILL. I REPEAT, THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
Sweater weather is back and I'm absolutely loving it. I love all kinds of sweaters, I could wear them all year round (which is something I do, to be honest). Knits, jumpers, sweaters - I'm all yours and here is my wish list for this Autumn.

2017/09/15

RE-DECORATING OUR LIVING ROOM | TO-DO LIST


I decided to start a little Autumn/Winter project here at home. Or well, two but this one is the first priority at the moment. I want to do some changes in our living room. Brighten up the look a little bit and hang up some pictures and paintings on the walls. Damn, I hate white walls.

I DID NOT WANT TO HAVE CHILDREN


Children are funny creatures, aren't they? Before I'll continue writing this post, I want to make clear that even though I didn't want to have children before - I would not change a thing that has happened to me during past couple of years. Children, if you want to put it like this - are a blessing. You don't make children, you have them.

2017/09/11

TASTY CHICKEN SALAD


This is one of our favourite chicken salad recipes. If you want, you can add dressing to your salad but I'm more like a no dressing kind of a gal so I won't use dressing. Also, if you want you can add some olive oil to the salad.

MY AUTUMN BUCKET LIST | 2017


Autumn is coming towards us faster than ever, after all - it's already freaking September! How did that happen and how many times do I have to ask that myself again?
I thought that a little bucket list for Autumn would be fun to share so let's get on to it.

LUSH DIRTY SPRINGWASH | REVIEW


I have to announce, with a heavy heart, that my Snow Fairy shower gel has reached its bottom. Damn, that smells just so so good. Although, I've found a replacement. It's not Snow Fairy, but it goes well until Christmas arrives. By the way, there's not long for Christmas; 3 months!

5 THINGS I LOVE ABOUT STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN


Even though I've visited Stockholm countless times and it feels like you don't change the country when travelling from Finland to Sweden, but Stockholm does have its own vibes in it. There are multiple reasons why I love Stockholm but today I'm sharing five of them with you.

CHANTERELLE SOUP


I absolutely love chanterelles. I love their smell and I love cooking stuff from them but I really don't enjoy eating them and this is where my husband comes to the picture. This soup is like a once in a year kind of a thing I make & hubby seems to like it. Maybe it's the once in a year thing or maybe he actually likes the soup? Just kidding, he loves chanterelles.

YOU ASKED & NOW I’LL ANSWER


First of all, thank you so much for sending me questions! I thought it would be a fun way to get to know to me better and especially if there was something you wanted to know about me or about the way I see things. It's easier to answer questions that are about something you'd like to know!

MY BLOGGING GOALS | SEPTEMBER 2017


I feel like I'm starting all of my monthly goals posts like this but HOW is it September already? This year has flown by so fast it's insane. Imagine, it's the chapter 9 out of 12 in the book of 2017.
What on Earth is going on with this year?

I HAVE A SECRET I’M NO LONGER GOING TO KEEP


breast reduction surgery
the plastic surgery procedure for reducing the size of large breasts. These are done if the size of your breasts effects to your physical health. These are also done if you just don't like your titties.

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN


This was our view from our hotel window, isn't it stunning? We spent two nights over at Clarion Hotel Stockholm which was located in Södermalm. It had everything I wanted from a hotel room - bathtub & huge comfy bed. I mean, is there anything else you can hope from a hotel room?

6 MONTHS | DINO


Where is this time going? It feels like yesterday when I was pushing this little, oh, now so grown baby out of me but no, that happened 6 months ago. D turned six months yesterday and it's insane how time has flown.

LUSH DADDY-O | REVIEW


I'm always up to new hair shampoos and when my Lush Rehab was getting close to its end, I decided it was time to go for something new. That's how I bought Daddy-O shampoo. Even though it says it's for blonde and grey hair, it says that it works as well for brunettes too.

KARMAROCK26 | 290717 @ HARJAVALTA, FINLAND


This little rock festival called Karmarock was held for the 26th time in Harjavalta, Finland on 29th of July. What's typical for this festival? They don't reveal the bands before they get up on the stage and the reason why people are buying tickets there is a band called Maj Karma.
Maj Karma was founded in Harjavalta in 1992 and they're playing melodic heavy rock. They've got pretty great songs, so I'd pay 31,50€ just to see them.

2017/08/21

TUMBA, SWEDEN


The second stop on our little road trip was a city called Tumba, which is a 30-minute drive away from Stockholm. J's cousin lives there with his family and actually, they were about to move as well. Funny how we manage to visit when everyone is moving house.

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.

2017/08/16

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!

BABY HAUL: FRED & NOAH


I went and ordered something for D last month. Gosh, I love buying stuff for that little man. Especially clothes. He looks so adorable in everything.

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!

2017/08/02

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.
