Announcing The Secret


Hooray Hooray, we're finally here! Welcome! I am super happy and excited to announce, that from this day forward, I'll be a part of this fantastic group of women! These 5 beauties are all so inspiring, cool, smart, focused and strong role models for women. I am so honored to be a part of it all.
Not only do I get to work with these gorgeous ladies, but we are also in collaboration with Suomen Blogimedia, and together we create the Suomen Blogimedia Fashion group.
Suomen Blogimedia is a 1.5 year old blog community for individual bloggers, now covering 26 blogs.

Last weekend was spent in London, and it was so much fun getting to know all of these girls. All of us flew in from different parts of the world, and arrived at different times on Friday, but since we stayed at the same hotel, we got to catch up a little before it was time to roll up our sleeves and really get to work.

On Saturday it waLs time to get together for some group pictures, so me, AlexaKaisaLindaMarika and Vilma met up with London based, rising star photographer Mikko Puttonen, at this beautiful and cool location. I think the pictures came out really beautiful and powerful, really reflecting what this group is all about. London is a really beautiful city with tons of beautiful buildings, cafes and parks, and I felt like I wanted to stay much longer, to shoot outfit pictures for the entire year ahead ;).

Our trip to London was made possible thanks to a collaboration with Momondo.

It's going to take some time for both me and the blog to settle, so please be patient if you can't find something your looking for in the archives just yet. Everything will be sorted out within a week or so.
I hope you enjoy yourselves here at, and as always I'll be extremely happy and grateful for any kind of feedback, thoughts and comments from you. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you again very soon<3.

Starting from tomorrow morning, you'll be able to follow my updates at I am excited but also a bit nervous. The good kind of nervous I think.

What's up

Good morning! I am now back home from a fun and intensive weekend in London, which I'm going to tell you all about later this week. For those of you who follow me on Instagram, have already seen a few sneak peeks of what's to come ;). On Wednesday the blog will be ready to roll on my new page, but there is still a lot to be done before that. 
Until then, I'll be busy hanging out with Greta, working and hopefully I'll be able to get some exercise in as well. My body is screaming for some fresh air and sweat after this past weekends traveling.

These pictures are taken by beautiful and talented model/ blogger/ photographer Vilma! It's always an honor and pleasure to be around her, and her way to catch moments in pictures is always as admiring. You can visit her blog here, and here you get to my previous post featuring pictures taken by her.

How to become a relaxed, nice and lovable person?

Haha, that's what I would like to know (and my husband too, one would think :-))!? I feel like ever since I've become a mother I've been a stress boll and I have difficulties to wind down at night or whenever I get the chance (doesn't have anything to do with the fact that I totally over consume coffee !?!) . I am constantly on the go, going somewhere, thinking about the next thing on my to do list. And all the things I haven't done, should be doing and shouldn't be doing, all at once. I know that I come off as a crazy person :-) every now and then, so I've finally decided to take my own advice and do something about it. 

All I actually need is a good night of sleep, but since that's not about to happen anytime soon (probably ever), I'll have to try to find other things to help me de-stress. Here are my top ten  best advice on how to calm down and de-stress.

1. Nature. Walking or spending time in nature and breathing fresh air is energizing, grounding and calming all at the same time, and it's also therapeutic.

2. Sauna or hot bath. As a typical and proud finn, I love going to the sauna and luckily we have one in our apartment. It's the best way to end a hectic day before going to bed with my loved ones.

3. Meditation music. I have, and am obsessed with both meditation and yoga music on spotify. I listen to it at home with Greta, while I clean, study, and during my walks. It's calming and invites only nice and lovely thoughts.

4. Yoga! I used to practice hot yoga almost every day a few years back when I lived in Ottawa. I loved it so much I actually wanted to become a yoga teacher (I always want to study and master everything I like, so no surprise there really). I really miss the yoga studio and our fantastic and inspiring teacher in Ottawa. It has never been the same here in Finland, but I should really give it a try again, because yoga makes me feel so good and it's good for both body and mind.

5. Accept failure. I have to really let go and accept that I don't have the time or energy to do everything I'd like to do, or expect out of myself. My home is never perfect and I cook the same thing everyday, but that's just how it's going to be for a while forward so I'd better just accept it.

6. Ask for help. I am a master at this one, because I ask my husband for help constantly. He helps me with my paper work and anything I ask for really, so all I have to do is just keep asking, a lot ;D.

7. Say no without explaining yourself! NO. Period.

8. Go to bed at 10pm every night. I so need it!

9. Shop less- vacate more. Even if it's jus fort a day or two, but a change of scenery and a getaway from daily tasks is so relaxing. Packing and flying with a child might of course not be the most stress free thing, but when all that is taken care of and survived, it's so worth it. Traveling is really an investment in so many ways!

10. Focus. Every day when me and Greta participate in activities I always focus on her only. I don't check my phone or any other devices. This time is usually completely stress free because I don't think about all the other things on my to do list. I am present and I watch her play and enjoy herself. I am in the moment and I love it. I should adapt this way of thinking into other situations too. I really should.

Brrr, it's been soo cold today, almost like winter! One day I walk around bare legged, and the next I just wanna wear uggs and my warmest down coat and stay in all day. I'm in the middle of a super hectic yet exciting time. I run errands all day long and I'm rather busy, but I am happy to announce that I am going on a little mini trip this upcoming weekend :D! I'll tell you all about that later, because now it's time for me to calm down a bit, watch my guilty pleasure tv show online, and just be close to the coziest little munchkin on this planet!
