A Good Day

Runebergs tart

Today has been a good day. Nothing special has happened but still. Maybe it was the vibes from the chilled out Sunday we had that carried over to Monday or maybe it’s just that a few things have transpired that I’m happy about and others that I’m really looking forward to.

Snowed In

Posted on

Hello from a pretty damn snowy Helsinki! If you follow me on instagram you’ll know how happy I’ve been over the wintry winter we’re having here in Finland. After 7 years in the UK I am just appreciating it so much. I feel like I kid!

It’s been a while since my last sister snapshot post, so here we go again – just in time for Lana’s 4th birthday! There is so much to say about my little girls, but I will try to not go on rambling too much…

20 minute granola recipe

I don’t know why the hell I haven’t made granola before – especially since I think the shop-bought stuff is way overpriced and consists mainly of oats and sugar. Now if you make your own YOU get to decide what to put in it and what the perfect oats to nuts to dried fruit ratio is.

Oodi – Not Your Average Library

Posted on

Just over a month ago, one day before the Finnish Independence Day, the much anticipated new central library opened in Helsinki. Myself, along with the rest of the city it seemed, had been waiting to visit the beautiful three-storey ship-like building made of wood, glass and steel – and we weren’t disappointed. What a place! Makes me proud to be a Finn.

I’m Back!

Posted on

It’s been a while since my last blog post and I’m sure many will think I’m pregnant as the only two other times I’ve had a break was when I was pregnant and not feeling well. So let’s start with saying that I’m not preggers!

One Week Until Christmas!

Posted on

Christmas can’t be only one week away right?? What happened to the time leading up to the holidays when you’re supposed to feel christmassy and light candles and drink mulled wine? I don’t know, maybe we’ve been too busy and too tired to get into the spirit – but I hope it’ll find us in Edinburgh! 

6 Less Known Finnish Kids Clothing Brands

Posted on

A while back I wrote a blog about 8 cool and ethical Finnish children’s’ clothing brands – and since this post is one of my most read ones and now number one in Google searches I thought I’d write another one where I include some of the less known brands I like as well! And this way spread the word about Finnish craftsmanship and maybe even inspire someone to invest in quality over quantity 🙂 

We’ve Been Better

Posted on

The sun is back after a long, grey and rainy period – and the beautiful winter light just makes me want to take my camera with me everywhere. It’s gotten pretty cold too, which means I’m struggling to figure out what the girls should be wearing in order not to be cold or sweaty. And struggling to keep those gloves on Maya. It’s not easy stuff! But I much prefer it this way instead of rain and clouds!
