SUMMER 2018 IN A NUTSHELL


If anything, summer 2018 went by in a blink of an eye. Feels like it was yesterday since it was May and now it's suddenly the end of September. It's literally 12 Mondays until the Christmas Eve, let that sink in.
While we're letting it sink in, let's have a look back to our summer 2018!

3 THINGS I’VE LEARNED AFTER ONE MONTH IN UNI


What's up guys and gals!? It's official now, I've been a uni student for a full month now. And oh boy, it's been a journey. Either way, you know how I like to turn some of the experiences in my life to positive learning experiences (like I did with my entrance exam and stress back in June), this one will be one of those too. So here's to one month in uni and 47 more. Or well, 43 if you don't count summer vacation.

POSTCARDS FROM PORVOO, FINLAND


Back in July, July 25th to be exact, we ventured to the Old Town of Porvoo. It was such a warm day, over 30°C degrees - I honestly can't remember the time it's been this hot during the Summer. Now that we're turning into Autumn, slowly and steady I feel like I'm actually able to breathe again.

OUR BATHROOM | BEFORE AND AFTER


I have been waiting for ages to be able to write this post, as our bathroom is something we haven't gone through over at the blog yet. There's a simple reason for that, as well; because we saved it for the last as there wasn't going to be any major changes. Though I would like to change the floor over there, it's a hell of a work! And especially facing the possible plumbing work there will be done (we don't know when or where, or even at all but there is a possibility for that) it would be stupid to go and make some major changes there at this point.

A DAY IN MY LIFE | 300818

OUR 5-YEAR TRAVEL BUCKET LIST


We've been doing some plans, but as you know plans can change so don't feel like expecting all of these to happen. That's why it's called "bucket list". Either way, we've been thinking about our travels for the next five years and while there are big trips like the Maldives on the list, there are also some smaller ones we want to do. So let's roll to our 5-year travel bucket list.

10 THINGS THAT I’M GRATEFUL AT THE MOMENT


It's been ages since I listed out things I've been grateful for, so I thought it would be about the time for that already!

A DAY IN MY LIFE | 230818

3 WAYS TO GET RID OF SELF-DOUBT


I'm the worst at self-doubting myself. I mean, the worst. I tend to overthink multiple things, go through all the what if's in life and I used to doubt my own actions and sayings just because I was worried about what everyone else thought of me. I used to think that I'm not good enough and people wouldn't accept me the way I am unless I changed myself. Does this ring the bell for you? Good. As I'm here today sharing how you can get rid of the self-doubt. It's not going to be easy, it's going to take some time but trust me; it'll be worth it.

AUGUST VIA INSTAGRAM


It's that time of the month again! What do I mean? The Instagram round-up of course.
I cannot believe it's officially the knit season, also known as Autumn. Where did the summer go? Either way, let's look back to our August via my Instagram feed. August was one of the months I grew my account the most (at its highest it was in 1999) and it was at its lowest by the end of the month (1888). So yeah, follow unfollow game going on much?

BLOGGING GOALS | SEPTEMBER 2018


PHEW, what a month last month was! I still haven't wrapped my head around the fact that I'll be having multiple different projects going on for the next four years. And yeah, I like to detach myself from the things by calling them projects. And while alongside the projects there will become a big responsibility, in the projects it's good to know that I am able to take a break if needed. Either way, it's the time of the month again, it's the Blogging Goals time!
