Hi there, where did January go? I just realized few days a go, that it is already February and I have not been writing anything almost in a month. What a sad situation! The truth is, that January was crazy as after 5 months in the Netherlands, I went back to work and continued my studies in Finland. Plus I did move to my new home, and I was trying to see as many friends as possible. Top of all this, my computer started to act out and it was nearly impossible to edit any photos example.And to be honest, it has not been really easy to get used to life in Finland again. So there has been a lot going on, but here I am, still alive!
Today I have been editing photos like crazy and writing down topics for all the posts I want to write, so I hope I can start posting more frequently again. But before I share any new stories about all the amazing things happening lately in life, I want to sum up just a little the past month and tell what kind of stories you can expect to read in the upcoming days. And the winter photo above, that is from my moving day morning. It was a perfect day!
DIY projects will return big time!! I have already done some projects, like the coffee tables you see in the photo, and so many is still in the making. I was like a child in the candy shop, when after several months I opened my graft material boxes again. I have been painting, fixing, sewing and and.. stay tuned!
As a new years resolution I decided, that this year I will try something new in Helsinki every week. I will be posting everything related to that under 52 weeks in Helsinki -tag, and sharing all my tips with you throughout the year. HAM (Helsinki art museum) was something I experienced first time few weeks a go, and I have to say, that I enjoyed extremely lot Yayoi Kusama exhibition.
Just like last January, also this year I visited the Nordic travel fair. To be honest, Matka 2017 was somehow a huge disappointment to me. There was not too much new things when compared to last year, and many companies were using the same visuals. Only few new innovations were presented, and I really did not feel highly inspired when I left the fair.
Home and interior have been for sure the keywords every since I moved to my new home. I absolutely love the apartment, and could not be happier how it starts to look. I really feel I finally have a home, and it is nice to have all my things after few years of temporary solutions. More home related post coming soon, and meantime don´t forget to check my Instagram, as I am posting details of my home there.
I cannot not mention tulips when I am talking about January! I absolute love fresh flowers, and tulips are a must when it comes to flowers in winter/spring. I have had already several different colors, but these blush pinks have been so far my favorites.
The past days have been amazing when it comes to weather; so much sun and nicely cold. But only few weeks a go it was totally different; gray and rainy! So on the last Saturday of January I escaped the bad weather to the beautiful Winter gardens, and for those few hours it almost felt like I am not in Finland. More about that amazing place coming later!
In the beginning of January we had LUX light festival in Helsinki, and it was first time I have managed to be actually in Helsinki when it is happening. I don´t know why, but somehow I always end up being abroad or somewhere else during LUX. I am happy this year I could walk there from my home, wonder and be amazed by all the installations around the city. The one in the photo was one of my favorites!
Other than the things above, in January I went to few other museums, visited surprisingly many cafes (old favorites and new ones), got myself amazing internship position for the spring, spend a lot time with my friends, tested new recipes, took way too many photos again, find super nice things from the sales, started really cool school projects and and and..so the year has definitely started good for me. I hope for you also!
