OUR TOP TIPS FOR KEEPING THE TODDLER ENTERTAINED IN A CAR | WITHOUT ELECTRONICS


If you're anything like I am, you are not comfortable with giving an iPad to your children as a first thing that makes them happy on a long car journey.
I actually am not comfortable giving my kid any electronics at all, we even control how much D can watch TV throughout the days.

CHILD FAIR | 2204-240418 @ HELSINKI, FINLAND


PHEW, what a weekend we're having behind of us. I'm actually really looking forward to the next one, as it's the last chill weekend before our travels. Although, I'm not here to tell you about our travels. I'm here to tell you about the Child Fair which was held at the Messukeskus Helsinki last weekend. And I also managed to drag my dear friend Petra with me, so it was twice as fun!

5 INSTAGRAM FEEDS YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY CHECK OUT


It's been a while since I've shared some of my favourite Instagrammers over at the blog so I decided that this time (instead of doing it on my Instagram stories) I'd share 5 Instagram feeds you should definitely check out. Not to mention my own as I might or might not be very proud of it at the moment.

JUNIOR SUITE | CLARION HOTEL HELSINKI


So, this is what I got J for his birthday - night at the hotel. And holy crap that hotel room, suite was amazing. I booked us one-night stay at Clarion Hotel Helsinki, which is the new hotel in Jätkäsaari. It was definitely a worth of the splurge, considering that the night in this suite cost 296€.

PLANE SPOTTING | HELSINKI AIRPORT


My son is such a fun little creature. He's obsessed in planes & dogs which of both, fortunately, is around way more than I expected when we moved to our new flat. We're living on the route of aeroplanes & every other neighbour seems to have a dog.

Whichever D happens to see, he starts screaming like a little fangirl (which kind of worries me, considering that our Airbnb host in Norway has two dogs, that will be interesting) from the bottom of his lungs.

BRING IN THE SPRING WITH FRESH FLOWERS


SPRING IS IN THE AIR! 
We bought some fresh flowers to cheer up our kitchen? I must admit, now when the Spring has truly kicked in I feel so energised. I could honestly take on the world! I have no clue what this burst of motivation is that is driving me, but gosh I could've used it earlier this year.

POSTCARDS FROM HELSINKI, FINLAND


So, if you're wondering what the hell was that radio silence that has been over at the blog for the start of the week I have no explanation for that. Nor that I even need one. I just didn't feel like posting and I kind of wanted to have a tiny Spring break. And especially now when I'm not writing my content that far forwards, I didn't even manage to come up with any post ideas for Monday and Wednesday.

10 x GRATEFUL | OH, THESE COSY SUNDAY MORNINGS


HAPPY SUNDAY LOVELIES! 
Currently, I'm in the middle of Helsinki, enjoying ah, the hotel bed morning - can't wait to share all about my little gift for J for his birthday. So the fact that I've been to the hotel, on my way to enjoy a lovely hotel breakfast made me thinking how grateful I am for life at the moment. So amongst the living, I'm sharing 10 other things that I'm grateful at the moment.

MY TOP TIPS FOR TIME-MANAGEMENT


Time-management is a funny thing, either it's something that's built in you or it's something that you need to learn. All of us need some sort of experience of managing their own time at some point in our lives, whether you're living with small children or just have your calendar booked to the moment it might actually explode from all the things to do.

MARCH VIA INSTAGRAM


Whole March just flew by, straight in front of my face and I don't really know did I accomplish anything. Oh well, I did apply to the school for the 4th time so I guess that was one of my biggest accomplishments but seriously, feels like I didn't have time to do anything last month. It just flew by.

D HAD HIS FIRST FEVER


I've been dreading this moment, dreading the moment when my gorgeous happy baby, excuse me, toddler boy will get his first fever. I don't know why, but the combination of small children and fever is something that makes me personally uncomfortable. They cannot speak so they can't tell you what they want, what they need and how they are feeling. I guess that's what creeps me out the most.

BLOGGING GOALS | APRIL 2018


The Spring Fling is finally arriving in our household after another flu/fever thingy and after several sun rays we have had here in Finland I'm feeling more motivated for everything than ever. It's funny what the sun can do, to be honest. Also, I'm pretty sure that the fact that I'm not on the essay writing duty anymore & I got it sent out just in time (waiting for the results now!!) might have something to do with this sudden burst of the need to write a bunch of new blog posts. So here I am, exhausted but refreshed. Let's roll on to another month of blogging goals.
