Friday Chaos

Posted on

Ever wondered what it’s like to have a baby? This photo pretty much sums it up. Just came home from the grocery shop with Lana and realised what a mess our living room is. And the best way to deal with it is obviously to take a photo and share it with the rest of the world…:)

Another Year Older!

Posted on

I’m usually not too keen on celebrating my birthday and being reminded of the fact that I’m (still) getting older, but I think that I’m finally starting to be ok with it. 32 is not a bad age at all and there’s so much to look forward to that I just can’t be wasting any time or energy on being upset about getting older!

DIY Bar Stool Project

A while back I mentioned my little do-it-yourself project that I would share with you if it turned out ok – and since it actually turned out better than I was expecting I proudly present my old-new teal blue bar stool 🙂

Coffee, Food & Nordic Design

During Lana’s and mine Finland visit we spent a day in Helsinki with a good friend, eating well and checking out the Design Museum. Having lived in Helsinki for most of my twenties the city will always have a special place in my heart and I’m hoping I’ll get to live there again one day – or at least so close that I can visit often!

Finland Holiday Photos

Posted on

Our two-week holiday in Finland came and went very quickly and now we’re safely back in the Burgh. Didn’t take too many photos, and the ones I did take were mostly with my phone – so don’t expect good quality snaps! Anyway, here’s some of the things we got up to!

10 Differences Between Finland And The UK

Posted on

Since I travel between Finland and the UK several times a year I cannot help but make small observations about differences in Finnish and Scottish everyday life that I find curious, interesting or just plain annoying – and now I thought I’d share them with you as well my dear friends. Remember that these are just my personal, not-so-objective observations and generalisations based on 1,5 years in London and 2,5 years in Edinburgh! So without further introductions, here they are:

Autumn Forest Run

Posted on

Today was one of those good days when I just woke up in a good mood and didn’t even feel tired although I barely slept last night (both Lana and trouble falling asleep are to blame). The sun was shining from a blue sky once again and the lawn was glistening with frost. Yup, we’re down to minus degrees already! I didn’t bring warm enough clothes for Lana (I don’t think she even owns clothes that warm), so we had to get her some wintry stuff.

We’re Back!

Posted on

…and we’re back safely in the motherland. Seems like we only just left – which I guess we did! It’s good to be back though, especially in autumn – my favourite season.
