Posted on

I recently read something that made me realise I don’t know much about treating dry skin and that what I thought I knew was completely wrong. I’m hoping my newly found knowledge will help my face stay hydrated this winter – and since I know a lot of people suffer from dry skin I just wanted to share this information and maybe help someone else with the same issues!

When the Adams Family Visited Porvoo

Posted on

So with Lana going to nursery I foolishly thought I’d have lots of extra time to blog – but I seem to have forgotten that 10-month-olds don’t really play on their own, but prefer to follow you around the house demanding to get picked up every two seconds…So here I am, trying to publish something about Matthew’s family’s visit two weeks later!

The Beginning of Something New

Lana is at nursery, Maya is sleeping and it feels like I have the first quiet moment to myself in months. The nursery manager and Lana’s own carer just visited and then Lana happily took both their hands and walked off to nursery whilst Maya and I were spying on them from the bedroom window. I’m only now realising just how big of a thing this is for Lana (and me) and it feels like a new beginning. An exciting one.  

New Hair & An Old Dress

Posted on

Recently I reached a point where I felt I just couldn’t look at my hair anymore and booked an appointment at local M.U.K.A.V.A hairdresser for the following day. It’s only around 3 months since my last visit, but my hair has grown really quickly and there are lots of annoying baby hairs coming through. Lovely post-pregnancy problems!

How To Make Your Own Vegan Poke Bowl

Posted on

In order to not get too bored in the kitchen I like trying new recipes – often on a weekly basis. Last week I decided to make poke bowls. And after Matthew tasted it and said it was the most delicious thing I’ve EVER cooked I thought this dish needs a post of its own! 

Our Helsinki Saturday

Posted on

I haven’t taken photos with my camera in a while, but on Saturday I woke up in a good mood (doesn’t happen too often at the moment with Maya keeping me up haha) and decided I would bring it to whatever we decided to do. We ended up wandering into the city centre with no clear plans and just exploring our new home town. This is what we got up to!

Sister Snapshot Vol 3

Posted on

It’s been two months since my last sister snapshot blog, and again so much has changed. I guess that’s how it is when you have a baby and a 3-year-old – they’re developing at the speed of light. And it’s amazing to watch!

Life Update

I’ve been meaning to write something about how we’re settling in in Finland and Helsinki, but I haven’t really had the energy to post anything – so guess my blog has been on a bit of a summer holiday too! But now a few things have happened and the holiday is more or less over…

Two Nights on a Big Boat

Posted on

A couple of weeks ago we made an im promptu decision to go to Stockholm on a two-night cruise with my brother and his family. A mini-holiday across the pond. I’ve been on one of these cruises so many times I’ve lost count – but never with kids. Turns out they’re perfect for children and Lana and Max (and Maya) had a blast!
