23 THINGS I HAVEN'T LEARNED IN 23 YEARS


23.
23 is a funny number, isn't it?
That's how old I am, 23 years plus one day.

FALLING IN LOVE WITH INSTAGRAM AGAIN


Instagram that tricky little bastard that we all love so much. I've been falling in and out of love with Instagram for a few months now and it's been more downhill than it has been something I thought was a fun platform to share pictures. We're so focused on growing our following, thinking what kind of pictures would bring more engage and thinking how to boost the posts to get more engage - which in the new algorithm means that you'll have higher chances to get your post to be seen. When did it become like this?

4 APPS THAT MAKE YOUR LIFE A WHOLE LOT EASIER AS A BLOGGER


Today's post is a bit different one! I've been on a hunt for good apps just to make my life easier. Living with a baby, moving, renovating, life - all that makes you extremely busy at the times & then you should find time to write as well and then take the pictures. I've been extremely busy doing nothing lately, so I decided I'd recommend some apps for you (like no one hasn't done it before) just to make your lives easier (or more complicated, who knows)!

11 MONTHS | DINO


The picture above tells exactly how D felt about his 11-month photo shoot earlier. He's become this stubborn young man who doesn't take shit from anyone, which I think is cool but my heart breaks a little when he doesn't want to be in the pictures anymore. Maybe it's just a phase, don't you think? I want to believe it's a phase.

BUILDING UP MY SELF-CONFIDENCE & SELF-ESTEEM AGAIN


I'm sat here, Disney Channel open binge-watching Olaf's Frozen Adventure (dubbed in Finnish) and am feeling so glad we watched it with the hubby in English first - it's so much better in English. Especially the songs, they always sound so tacky when you hear them in Finnish after hearing them in English. Also, how many songs can Disney fit in 22 minutes? Then again, it's Disney so basically my question is insanely invalid.

TOP 3 SERIES IN NETFLIX YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY WATCH


It's been a while since I've done my top 3 things to watch from Netflix and I can't wait to share these goodies with you. What do you tend to watch Netflix? Are you more into movies or are you a huge series junk like me and watch all the seasons as fast as you possibly can?

BUCKET LIST FOR THE LAST 6 MONTHS FOR BEING A STAY AT HOME MUM


I can not believe I'm returning back to work soon. Actually, on August 1st. August 1st is the day when I have to jump back to the reality and you know, continue where I left on. I secretly hope there will be new co-operation negotiations and I've been dumped like a trash away from there but we'll see, only time show us. So why I'm returning to the place I don't like anymore? That's a post for the day when I'm not working there anymore, for now, I'll be returning for a paycheck. I need money.

EASING TEETHING TERRORS WITH MATCHSTICK MONKEY*


Feels like D has popped out another tooth after another and that's how he's been acting lately. Ah, teething, don't we all love it so so much? We've gone through all from sugarfree homemade popsicles to rolling different teething toys in the fridge and D's hand. Funny thing is, D doesn't get the fever - he just becomes insanely grumpy.

DINO’S ROOM | BEFORE & AFTER


D's room was something that changed the most. It was actually fun to do, as I love to get creative and I had pretty free hands doing there whatever I wanted to...

GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER | YES, I READ A BOOK & I’M ABOUT TO RECOMMEND IT TO YOU


I don't write book reviews/recommendations that often. Why? Because I have hardly enough time to you know, concentrate on important things in life like self-care and such things, so I haven't read a book in a while. Though, Santa (my husband) brought me a gift underneath my Christmas tree that enlightened my whole world. And it made me read a book at one sitting.

MY TOP TIPS FOR SAVING FOR A BIG TRIP


This August, when I'm returning back to work (yak), we start saving for a big trip. It's big in three ways; it'll happen on our 10th anniversary, it takes around 14 hours to travel there if we're lucky and it'll cost a hell lot of money for us three to stay there for two weeks. Guess what it is yet? Maldives.

WHERE I SEE MYSELF IN FIVE YEARS?


I'm kicking this year off with a bunch of clichés, right? My New Year's resolutions and today I wanted to play with a thought about where I'm seeing myself in five years. I actually put a lot of thought into this one and I started thinking about this post before Christmas. I'm a spontaneous planner. I plan things, but as quickly as I plan them, I might change them up all over again. Who really knows where I'm going to be in five years? No one. I might have the time of my life with my family, I might have gotten into an accident and die or we might have had a divorce. These are things that can't be planned in any way, so today I'm sharing where I see myself in five years and trust me, it's not in the cemetery.

OUR BEDROOM | BEFORE & AFTER


And roll on to the next room, our bedroom!
Here, I didn't want to do any huge changes as it was perfect just the way it was.

TRYING THE TOP-DOWN PHOTO TIP FROM PINTEREST


I love Pinterest. I really do. I still haven't figured out how on Earth to use it in blog promoting purposes but I love it for the inspiration. I've gotten so much inspiration from there for my blog posts, my pictures and our home decoration. It's insane how it all can be in the same place. If you want, you can see what I've pinned over here and also give me a cheeky follow if you want to!

HOW TO MAKE MOVING WITH A BABY EASIER?


Moving with a baby is ridiculously exhausting. Not that he would have much done with the whole thing. For me, moving is planning, planning and planning. Recycling, donating and basically getting rid of all the unimportant shit that's hanging around the apartment. But can't do it when the baby is awake, can I?

OUR LIVING ROOM | BEFORE & AFTER


So guys, last November we bought an apartment. We renovated it before Christmas so I decided to do this different kind of new home tour in a few parts, by showing you what we actually renovated there. So I'll be going through a room to room in different posts. At first, we're going to see the new living room.

MY NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS


HAPPY 2018 EVERYONE! There were a few moments back in 2017 I wondered will we ever survive to the 2018 but here we are. Chris Cornell & Chester Bennington dying, that ridiculous world will end soon boom in September, North-Korea losing its shit and well, Trump. Though, I'm not here to chat about any that I've mentioned before. I'm here to chat about MY resolutions for 2018.
