GLADA VAPPEN! | BT


It's time for a monthly blog team blog post and this month we decided to do something that's pretty accurate. We went ahead and chose to make a May Day-themed blog post and what would be better for May Day than share a recipe for these pretty little funnel cakes.

MY PLAN FOR LOSING THE ”BABY WEIGHT”


HEY-OOO, it has been an interesting couple of months and by interesting I mean the fact that I'm finally able to tie my own shoe laces and most of all - I can see my toes. I can see them and I can reach them. Goals, right?

2 MONTHS | DINO


Ah, I can't believe that our little bundle of joy is two months old today. Time seems to fly by so fast and the super tiny baby I had a month ago has turned into this strong milk monster. Milk monster that doesn't smell like a fresh baby anymore. Milk monster who used to be the same size as the bunny.  Heck, he's a grown ass little man already!

5 THINGS I MISS ABOUT BEING PREGNANT


If there were things I did not miss about being pregnant, there are still a few that I do miss. 
I mean, we all know by this far that the pregnancy wasn't my cup of tea in any way, but there are still few things I miss about being pregnant.

5 THINGS I LOVE ABOUT SPRING


Spring is such a wonderful season. 
Although it's not my favourite season, but there are still few reasons why I love it so much. As a true Winter enthusiast, I still like the fact that the Winter ends at some point and that has something to do with the fact that I kind of love Spring.

OUR BEDTIME ROUTINE


I'm ridiculously bad at routines. 
I've never had ones. 
Now I need to create ones from nothing.

CHOCOLATE CAKE WITH BABY BLUE WHITE CHOCOLATE GANACHE


As I mentioned earlier, I had a bit trouble deciding which cake to bake for the name giving party we held for Dino little over a week ago. So I did two and this is the first one of them. I absolutely love baking and especially when it comes to decorating, cakes are my favourite. 

Personally, I'm not that into eating cakes but chocolate cake is something that I'm willing to eat as well. So here's my favourite chocolate cake recipe, filled with vanilla-white chocolate finning, coated with white vanilla buttercream and with some blue white chocolate ganache dropped on top.

CRAZY DAYS HAUL | SPRING 2017


Oh wow, last week there was Crazy Days (Hullut Päivät) over at Stockmann and we visited there. We weren't supposed to buy anything, but you know - when you see all those pretty prices and yellow things everywhere, it's hard to resist. I have to say, I'm not missing work at all. Even the way the department house smells like brings back all those hours I've spent there and I'm more than happy that I'm staying at home with little D for a while. Anyhow, if you remember my previous Crazy Days - haul, there really wasn't anything to buy. This Spring, there was more than last time, probably mostly because of the baby. And baby clothes. Damn those tiny clothes are deceptive.

BUTTERCREAM FROSTING RECIPE


I've got some exciting news for you guys! This month, I'm going to share two different cake recipes with you and this is kind of an introduction for those two cakes. I mean, they're all covered with buttercream frosting as are these cupcakes in the picture as well. 

I had trouble to decide which cake to bake for little P's name giving party so I decided to make two little cakes! I love baking and cakes are really close to my heart. I mean, I really don't enjoy eating them, but decorating and baking parts are my absolute favourites.

POM POM BEANIE | GUGGUU


I'm not a big fan of kids high street clothing, but this Gugguu beanie absolutely stole my heart before I even had a baby. Gugguu is a Finnish kid's clothing brand with some adorable designs. I'll leave a link after to this post so you can all go check them out if you feel like it.

PYRY | THE NAME GIVING PARTY

Pyry
- thick snowfall. 
Dino's first name is Pyry. 
The meaning behind the name is very simple, at the time I was pushing him out of me, it was snowing like crazy. And well, I've always wanted to name my kid Pyry, so that's the name he got.

7 USEFUL LINKS TO HELP YOU TO IMPROVE YOUR FLATLAYS

Flat lay photography is really out there. 
It has been quite a while. 
And I absolutely love it. 


For me, one of my blogging goals for 2017 was to improve my own flat lay photography. As I love them so much, why wouldn't I jump on the bandwagon and try to improve my own? So far, I can't say that I've improved that much. I've basically spent my early year studying the flat lay photography via different blogs and practising shooting those with and without a baby. Now, with the baby - I genuinely haven't had time to practice as much as earlier this year but I'm getting there. 
Anyways, I've found some wonderful tips for flat lay photography through Pinterest and Bloglovin'.

5 THINGS I DON’T MISS ABOUT BEING PREGNANT


As you might know, pregnancy and especially the third trimester really wasn't my cup of a tea. Or coffee, as I prefer coffee nowadays (ah, finally back to my old bad habits). There are things that I miss being pregnant but today I'm sharing five things, that I don't miss about being pregnant at all.

HOW TO STICK TO THE BUDGET?

As you might remember from a couple of months (or was it weeks?) back, I told you how we're budgeting our monthly groceries now when there's three of us and the most importantly, lower income when there's only one of us working. Everything has been going on so great and we've actually managed to stick to the budget. How?

ACTIVITY PLAY MAT | DONE BY DEER


Several weeks ago, when Dino turned two-week-old we started giving vitamin D drops to our little bundle of joy which got him in such a bad mood. I mean, he's always been a super easy baby and those drops made his stomach turn around like crazy. This is a bit TMI now, but pooping in our house was flavoured with screams and cries each time it was coming out. Thank goodness it's all better now. 
That time, Dino had trouble falling asleep, which meant that nowhere was good. He didn't enjoy the sofa, the nest, the bed, his own bed or well, basically anything else than my lap. So I went to his room and picked up this Done by Deer activity play mat and placed him under that. It kept him entertained while I got the chance to drink my cup of coffee in peace.

MY BLOGGING GOALS | APRIL 2017

Woah, another month has gone by like a wind. This year is going by so fast am I right? Or is it just me who's feeling that way? Last month was crazy hectic especially after the baby had arrived and I don't know, days just seem to go by the blink of an eye. My days literally consists of thinking "when was the last time he ate? Is it his time to eat soon?" Oh, these newborn days.
