EASY CHRISTMAS DIY: VANILLA SUGAR BODY SCRUB

14/12/2016


Hello guys! Christmas is so near already I can taste it and feel it and smell it! I can't wait. (You probably can't tell that I'm excited....) This year, I started buying Christmas presents is July. I spotted something that would suit my mom really well and thought I'd buy it. Even if it was half a year before Christmas... Now, 10 days before Christmas eve, I have every single present bought and waiting to be wrapped. (One more is still on the way somewhere between the States and Finland but bought all the same.)

MY FAVORITE THINGS IN NOVEMBER

06/12/2016




Viikko sitten mä kyselin, että haluaisitteko nähdä näitä kuukauden suosikit -postauksia vielä lisää ja no, päätin sitten itsevaltaisesti, että haluan kirjoittaa näitä. Näiden kautta on niin helppoa reflektoida viime kuukauden tekemisiä ja parhaita paloja, ja samalla se laittaa vähän perspektiiviin sitä, mikä omassa elämässä on hyvin ja mikä ei. Joten pidemmittä puheitta, tässä niitä taas tulee!

ALEXA DAGMAR: NUOREN NAISEN OPAS (PIKA-ARVIO!)

03/12/2016


"Ihanan visuaalinen, paljon kauniita kuvia ja söpöjä fontteja"

SHOULD I STILL DO FAVORITES?

29/11/2016


Muistatteko vielä, kun joskus 2014-2015 tein kuukausittain suosikki-postauksia? Niissä oli kirjoja, ruokaa, tekemistä, treenejä yms. Lueskelin niitä tässä yhtenä iltana ja mietin itekseni, että ne on itseasiassa aika hauskoja. Sitten mä tulin miettineeksi, että lukeeko niitä itseasiassa kukaan? Joten, nyt mä kysyn teiltä: jos mä alan taas tekemään niitä, niin luetteko niitä ja millasia juttuja haluaisitte nähdä niissä?


OUR (ENGAGEMENT) STORY

26/11/2016


The first time I met him, I was 12-years-old. It was May of 2007 and my elementary school class had just taken the bus to the secondary school 20 kilometers away from home. We were meeting our new classmates and getting familiarized with the school building before the semester began in August. I remember being a bit anxious but also excited – we were the big kids now, me and my friends – and would be taking the bus to school instead of biking.


MY WISH LIST FOR THIS CHRISTMAS (AND WHY YOU SHOULD WRITE ONE TOO)

22/11/2016


I am such a Christmas person. I’ve been listening to Christmas songs, buying presents, and drinking mulled wine for almost a month now, I think. I actually bought this year’s first Christmas present in July already…


12 BIG QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF ABOUT LIFE

21/10/2016


I’ve been thinking about my life in general and career-wise a lot lately. I have a new job I’m starting in the beginning of November and I have applied to two internships for next year. Neither of those internships is strictly speaking journalism but rather social media and marketing.


CRAZY TIMES IN DENVER (ONA16 EXPERIENCE)

12/10/2016


It has been a month since I went to Denver. I can't believe how fast time just flies by... These past four weeks I have been mainly catching up on school work and let me tell you, the workload has only now seemed to be getting smaller. I'm taking literature and economics this semester and I'm kinda struggling with the latter one. I mean, it's not particularly hard or anything but my motivation towards it isn't huge.

CLEANING UP WITH KONMARI (BOOK REVIEW!)

10/09/2016


If you haven't heard of KonMari yet, you must be living in the middle of nowhere without access to the Internet or newspapers. The cleaning method developed by Marie Kondo has become a huge phenomenon and it has its almost fanatical followers all over the world. (It seems to me that at least in Finland those people are mostly middle-aged housewives.) I short, KonMari is about throwing the stuff that doesn't bring you joy away and keeping the things that do.

8 TIPS FOR STARTING SCHOOL LIKE A BOSS

The start of the new school year is just around the corner! I can't believe that summer is already gone - where did it go?! Three months of working went by so fast...

You are wonderful, amazing, and you deserve to be happy.


JEN SINCERO: YOU ARE A BADASS (BOOK REVIEW!)

25/07/2016


I read Jen Sincero's You Are a Badass a while back and the book really hit me. It is described to be a "self-help book for people who desperately want to improve their lives but don't want to get busted doing it". That is exactly what the book is, however, I think your life gets pretty much busted when you actually start to implement the things to your life that Sincero teaches.


4 BEST SHOWS TO LISTEN TO FOR A PODCAST NEWBIE

12/07/2016


I am not a big fan of the radio. Since freshman year in uni and my first radio production class, I’ve had a feeling I will never be a radio reporter. Still, about a half a year ago I decided it was time for me to tackle the horrendous memories from that first class and take a more challenging course on the topic. It turned out to be one of the nicest classes I had during that spring in uni and it focused on - ta-dah - podcasts.


3 THINGS STUDYING ABROAD TAUGHT ME

07/07/2016


I spent almost five months in the United States last fall. Before the exchange the whole idea of going abroad to study and travel on my own seemed like a dream that would never come true - I had wanted it for so long. And when it finally happened, time went by flying. Now, over six months after coming back, it again feels like a dream. Something that happened in a different life.


WHAT TO WATCH ON NETFLIX THIS SUMMER

18/06/2016


I have been watching huge amounts of series on Netflix during the past two months - the whole of May actually, less during June – and I made an observation: all the series I am watching are somehow historical. They also include strong female characters, gorgeous clothing, and murders. So I figured, why not share some of those amazing series I so much enjoy so that you guys can find them too.


MY 4 BEST TIPS ON SELF-LOVE

25/05/2016


Self-love is quite the trend these days, everyone seems to be talking about it, or writing about it. That got me thinking, how did we start to care so much about what other people think of us when the only opinion that really matters is our own? A cliché you will most certainly read on every article and post about the topic, is that yourself is the only person you will have to live with for the rest of your life.


WHAT TO PACK FOR YOUR STUDENT EXCHANGE

07/02/2016


Heipähei, oon pitkästä aikaa täällä. Kävin koneella olevia tiedostoja läpi siivousmielessä ja löysin vaihtoa varten kirjoittamani pakkauslistan. Ajattelin jakaa sen jo ennen Amerikan-reissua, mutten sitten jostain syystä koskaan tehnyt. Lista ei ole millään lailla täydellinen, mutta jos tästä jollekin on apua, niin se ajaa asiansa.


NEW YORK NEW YORK

10/01/2016


Blogin puolella on pidellyt hiljaista melkein kuukauden ajan, mutta täältä tulee ilouutisia: kotiuduttu on kunnolla ja uuteen asuntoonkin muutettu. Jouluna oli ihanaa olla kotona ja viettää aikaa perheen ja sukulaisten kanssa. Ja syödä jälleen Amerikan mättöjen jälkeen ihanaa tavallista suomalaista ruokaa!

Ennen arkea palataan vielä hetkeksi rapakon taakse ja New Yorkiin. Vaihtojakson päätteeksi vietin viikon New Yorkissa suomalaisen kaverin kanssa. Kuten edellisessä postauksessa jo mainitsinkin, väsymys oli siinä vaiheessa jo aika kova, mutta silti kaupungista oli pakko ottaa kaikki irti. Käveltiin jalat puhki lähes joka päivä ja nähtiin todella paljon.
