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!

One Hot Challenge

I haven’t blogged for a while, probably because I’ve been too busy enjoying this incredible summer we’re having here in Finland – and that’s how it should be if you ask me! We’re out and about every day as it is impossible (and too hot) to be inside, so I feel like we are really making the most out of this summer. 

This is Why I Moved to Finland

Posted on

Warm summer days on an island surrounded by friends and their kids – what more could you ask for?! Matthew even suggested we buy ourselves an island to build a house on, Lana was so busy she didn’t have time to eat and Maya loves it when stuff is happening around her – so it’s fair to say we all enjoyed our day in the Finnish archipelago!

A Special Second Hand Dress

Posted on

I mentioned in my previous post about my recent flea market finds that there was one dress that deserves a post of its own – and to do the dress justice I thought it would be nice to match this Finnish vintage creation with some very Finnish landscape. So one night after the kids had fallen asleep, Matthew and I got in the car and drove 5 minutes into the woods near my parents place to take some photos!
