FEELINGS ABOUT RETURNING TO WORK THIS WEEK


Hey guys, I'm returning to work this week.
I'm returning to my very own little bunker in the middle of women's clothing, to the endless sea of boxes underground. In just a few days, D is going to go to the daycare for the very first time. A hell lot of changes going on in our household. And I'm absolutely shitting myself.

PINEAPPLE PUNCH | SUNDAY SMOOTHIE


The time has come - the time of the last summer Sunday smoothie recipe over here! Have you been enjoying this series? I really hope you have. I'm already brainstorming ideas for the next summer so please let me know in the comments which kind of summer recipes you would like to see during summer 2019!

SAILOR VIBES IN THE AIRBNB IN MARIEHAMN | ÅLAND, FINLAND


For our most recent trip, we decided that instead of a hotel we're staying in Airbnb. Just like we did on our way to Tromso in Oulu and during our visit to Tromso. I really want to show D some diversity in a way different people from different cultures are living and Airbnb is simply the perfect way to do so!

DAYCARE CALLING | A LETTER TO MY SON


My dear, sweet little potato.
Your time to begin in the daycare has arrived. Next week, you're going to meet with your new friends and I really do hope, with all my heart that everything goes well. I'm sure everything will go well, but you know - mum likes to worry about stuff.

POSTCARDS FROM LINNANMÄKI AMUSEMENT PARK | HELSINKI, FINLAND


My brother spent a week with us here in Helsinki in June so obviously, we did a little trip to the Linnanmäki amusement park. I'm not the kind of a person who is that into amusement parks. Don't get me wrong, I do love the adrenaline and the atmosphere and everything; but it takes me a while to get into the mood after the arrival. So while my brother and J got themselves day tickets, I got myself a ticket to one roller coaster ride.

SWEETNESS IN A MUG | SUNDAY SMOOTHIE


The hot weather is a tricky thing, isn't it? You're not feeling hungry, yet you are hungry but the thought of warm food makes you feel nauseous. Or that's how my body is dealing with the heat. That's when all those sweets are coming to the picture. But what if you could satisfy the need of sweets with actually something healthy? Oh, it's your lucky day as today I am sharing a smoothie recipe with you which is healthy and sweet!

POSTCARDS FROM ÅLAND, FINLAND


So, after doubting (for a bit too long) and thinking (for a bit too long, too) where we are off to as a family this summer we finally figured out the final destination. It was definitely too late to book a vacation in Greece (with a decent price at least) and it was too late to find a getaway in Europe such a short notice. They say, travelling in your homeland is the thing! They aren't? Oh well, that's what we did.

AM I ACTUALLY FALLING IN LOVE WITH SANDALS?


I've never been a wearing sandals kind of a girl, but when I was scrolling through H&M website trying to find shorts for D (how is it still summer, by the way?) my eyes caught these sandals. Yeah, I know right!? Women's sandals on the kid's section... Or wait a minute, did I scroll the women's section? That must've happened. Of course, by accident.

CLARION HOTEL SIGN | STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN


Is there a possibility that we've stayed in multiple Clarion Hotels because we trust to get excellent service from there? Yes, there is. However, most of the rules come with an exception and Clarion Hotel Sign in Stockholm, Sweden was one of them.
So if you're looking for a stay in the Clarion Hotel in Stockholm, choose Clarion Hotel Stockholm in Södermalm, which I mentioned in the 2017 summer's post about Stockholm.

BERRY BLAST SMOOTHIE | SUNDAY SMOOTHIE


It's time for another Sunday Smoothie recipe! How do you feel, have you been enjoying these so far? I'm already trying to figure out what kind of a theme I'd have for next summer. Though, when it comes to smoothies basically the sky is your limit. You can combine anything with anything and it's super easy and quick, yet healthy way to start your day.

ROSENDALS TRÄDGÅRD | STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN


If you are looking for a perfect Instagram photo location and you happen to be in Stockholm, Sweden at the same time - Rosendals Trärdgård (Rosendals Garden in English), is your place to be!
Imagine a place full of greenery, cafés hidden in the bushes and greenhouses you can pop by for a visit, buy a plant or two or just enjoy a warm cup of coffee. Or you can go full-on Swedish and have a proper fika (= cup of coffee with a cinnamon bun).

MY TOP TIPS FOR PLANNING A HOUSEWARMING PARTY


Holy cow! It has been a long time since we have last held the housewarming party (even though we've moved more times I have fingers, perhaps that's the reason for the lack of housewarming parties on our address) and now we are finally going to hold one at the end of this month. So I decided to come and share some tips for planning a housewarming party.

EMINEM | 020718 @ FRIENDS ARENA, STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN


These past weeks have been amazing for a handful of reasons. Not only that I went and got into that flipping school I've been trying to apply for the past 4 years I saw one of the artists that I've been highly looking up to since I've been on my early teens. I mean, the story behind Eminem is simply as amazing as the music he makes is.

REFRESHING KIWI SMOOTHIE | SUNDAY SMOOTHIE


Hey lovelies, it's time for another Sunday Smoothie recipe! And this week, it's time for a refreshing kiwi smoothie. If you've been following me for a while over here, you know how obsessed I was with kiwi's while I was being pregnant and well, I still am. So let's roll on to the recipe, shall we?

POSTCARDS FROM STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN


Hej Stockholm, ser vakkert ut.
We had a mini-trip to Stockholm with the hubby, just the two of us. It was actually pretty fun, though I missed D every minute of being separate from him. Which makes me wonder how mums are weird creatures. Some days, you're counting hours, days and minutes to have a moment without the little monster and when you're actually somewhere without them, you miss them like crazy. I blame hormones. And love.

JUNE VIA INSTAGRAM


I cannot believe we've said goodbyes to the June already and we're now turning into July. It's oddly ridiculous how fast the time seems to be flying by, and once again it's time for another monthly Instagram round up. It was something that started out as "oh, fuck it, I might as well give it a go" and it's now turned into a whole series as I've got some wonderful feedback about the posts. Thank you so much, for actually enjoying of these things I type out here.

5 SERIES YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY WATCH | NETFLIX


It's time for another bunch of Netflix suggestions! But first, tell me - what do you enjoy watching on the Netflix? I could do with some suggestions, as I'm basically running out of things to watch. It can be a movie, series (I prefer series, as they usually continue to somewhere, movies are just for a few hour fun and then it ends). Let me know!

BLOGGING GOALS | JULY 2018


Okay guys, as if it's a flipping July already? I keep repeating myself each time I'm writing a new blogging goals related blog post and I'm not even sorry about that. One of us needs to be that cliché rolling around the Blogosphere asking how on earth time goes on and months keep flashing by in front of us.
