Our Sunny Helsinki Weekend

Posted on

A Helsinki weekend was a must on our Finland holiday – and since my parents live only an hour away and have a flat there it’s a pretty easy thing to make happen! We had amazing weather too and got to enjoy Helsinki at its best. It’s such a lovely city (way better than Stockholm ;)) that you should visit if you can! 2017 marks Finland’s 100th independence anniversary, so there’s a lot going on as well. Can you tell I used to work for the Tourist Office in Helsinki haha?!

10 Things I Don’t Want to Eat or Drink

Posted on

Recently I’ve seen several bloggers do blogs about what they don’t like to eat – and as I’m always curious about what other people eat and don’t eat I thought it would be fun to do the same. Especially since there are quite a few foods I can’t stand and it won’t be difficult to put together a list…(I wish I wouldn’t have any food aversions but unfortunately I do.) Here are 10 things I try to avoid as much as I can!

Animals, Ice Cream and Preggo Running

Posted on

We’re back in Edinburgh and my cold is finally almost gone, which means I have the energy to blog again! It feels a lot colder here and SO humid compared to Finland. It also gets dark earlier and today I swear I could feel autumn in the air… Anyway, I’m afraid this will be another post revolving around kids, animals and ice cream – these three things basically sums up our holiday in Finland haha.

Damn it, I’ve tried to ignore my cold all week, but as it seems to just get worse I’ve decided to only rest today. We were meant to go to Helsinki for a few days, but I’m hopeful that I’ll feel well enough to go tomorrow instead. Sucks being ill on your holiday!

2015 vs 2017

My original plan was to take this same sofa photo of the cousins every time I visited Finland, but surprise surprise there’s been a gap of more than two years…Anyway, above is a recent photo of the four cousins (where unfortunately half of the team decided to be grumpy) and below is a photo from when they were 2 months, 4 months, a year and 3 years old. How time flies!! 

Small Town Charm

23 weeks pregnant

So far we’ve been hanging out a lot with Lana’s cousins here at my parents’ place, and having worked most of Monday I felt like I needed a bit of a change of scenery – so on Tuesday we got in the car and drove to a little town by the sea called Lovisa. Just like the old town in my home town Borgå it’s a place full of pretty wooden houses in various colours.

Healthy Strawberry Oat Bars

Recently my friend shared a healthy toddler (and why not adult?!) snack recipe that sounded so easy and delicious that I had to try it straight away – and I wasn’t disappointed. So I thought why not share the love here on the blog as well!
