My party mani at Mimando

When in Finland, go to Mimando Spa! I got the whole treatment day, but I just had to start with this ready-to-party mani. Since this week is a celebration season in one way or another across the globe, I really wanted something pretty that wouldn’t just chip away as soon as I got my hands…

What I learned during 30 hours without power in the Nordics

I wake up in the Nordics, inland off the coast of Ostrobothnia, I wake to the snow gently falling on the trees. I was so excited to be able to see the first snowfall. I went to the spa appointment I had made for my manicure and facial, then planned to visit the store because…

Coconut Ginger Tofu with mixed Vegetables

Super simple and delicious way to get dinner on the table without too much complication. This is a good recipe, which I just kind of made on the spot because it’s what I had at hand. Sometimes those things just turn out the best! Fully vegan, packed with protein (Tofu and broccoli) and enough for…

Winter Slim-down week 5

Beginning week 5 of my winter slim-down diet. I have good news…and bad news. The good news is: I’m much happier 🙂 The bad news? Well, I wussed out on the intermittent fasting after 2 weeks and managed to gain back 1 kg (approx 2 lbs) of the weight. Honestly, not a major setback. At…

What to look forward to…

Hello peeps 🙂 I’ll try to keep this brief, since I know that time is valuable. It’s because of that, that I am writing this post. Since we only have one life (Which makes time far more valuable than money, in my opinion) I thought it might be beneficial to map out what kind of…

One of my favourite things :)

Just a quickie post to say ‘Hello’ and share one of my seasonal favourites! I purchased this Tory Burch pullover at the beginning of Autumn when in Finland, at Cotton clothing and apparel store. I love this piece. I have been wearing it at least once a week. Care isn’t too bad either. Although the…

Winter slim-down week 4

Three weeks down, and embarking on the last week of a month. The mysterious ‘they’ say that any habit can be changed (or at least dramatically altered) in 21 days. Well, here we are…day 21. I’ve lost exactly 3 kg (about 7 lbs) and have 6+ kg to go yet. My starting weight was 64,1 kg,…

Visiting Finland; Cultural insights and things to see.

Ah, Finland…what a wonder this country is. Located in the Arctic North and bordering Russia, this country with a population of approximately 5,5 million has many things that work in its favour as far as a travel and life destination. I have spent much time here there and everywhere in Finland, so feel confident in…

Winter slim-down week 3

I’m back on the wagon! Thank you for your encouragement and advice 🙂 Two weeks ago, my starting weight was 64,1 kg or 141 lbs. (Eeeekkk!!) I was really hoping not to have to share my weight (as no woman wants to divulge that info) however I realize that it is a bit difficult to…

Update: Winter slim-down week 2

Hello and happy 1st week of November, all! Time for my weekly diet check-in. Halfway through week 2. I’ll go ahead and admit it, I have totally fallen off the exercise wagon. Totally. Shame on me. In the past few days, my weight has been fluctuating quite a bit. I’m not entirely sure why, but…

If you are in the Ruovesi area of Finland, while you are sightseeing and picnicking at the lake, make sure to make time to visit Mimando for some skincare indulgence 🙂 I happened upon this spa a while researching all things to do when in the area. And boy am I glad I did! Nothing…
