Finnish summer at its best

I could say it’s been mostly rainy and rather cold lately, but instead I’ll share two pics which capture some of the best moments of the past weekend. Last week we had one, beautiful, sunny day. One! We went to Iso Vasikkasaari in Espoo, Southern Finland, to enjoy the sea, sail boats, outside crochet and some…

World Environment Day – how to create good quality content

What an interesting week it has been. After being chosen to the top5 with my World Environment Day video, I’ve spent the entire week on the campaign trail – promoting World Environment Day, telling people about my video, commenting, talking, tweeting and blogging more. It’s great! Questions of the climate change, rising sea level, and…

World Environment Day – the campaign trail

It’s always so exciting to campaign, be it for a politician, cause, or even just an event. There’s something in the horizon that you want to see happening, and campaigning brings the horizon a little closer, widens the circle of people who are interested and at best, creates new ways of thinking and acting, widens your…

World Environment Day – made it to the top5

You may remember my post some weeks ago, where I showed you the video I made for UNEP’s video blogging contest for the World Environment Day? It seems the video made it to the TOP 5. Wow. I was pretty speechless when I heard the news. But of course, I should have learned by now:…

World Environment Day – my video

I’m taking part in the World Environment Day blogging contest again. As you may remember, last year we wrote traditional blog posts about sustainable consumption and food waste in particular, but this year it’s all about video blogging. The broad theme for #WED2014 is small islands and climate change. If last year I worked on the…

Climate change is real and you too can change

Here I am, with my white tulips and my next read, The Power of Habit. I want to find out if I can change some things in my life, and I want to understand why it seems so difficult to accomplish changes, even though I know they are good for me in the long run. While…

Autumn turning to winter

This is how it looks. White, delicate, crispy, and beautiful. These photos were taken around 7.30am this morning in Southern Finland. The temperature was just below zero, skies were clear, and I knew it was going to be a beautiful morning. ♥ In the meantime: If you are into photography and nature, you should check…

Autumn countdown officially beginning

It’s been forever since my last blog post. I don’t know what it is with the autumn, but there always seems to be a time, lasting some few weeks, when I start a process similar to hibernating. Days follow one another, I go to work, days seem darker and darker, I overdose on chocolate, sleepiness…

The season is changing

You remember how I notice the changing season twice a year? Once in the autumn and once in the spring, according to the decreasing or increasing amount of daylight in Finland? The past few days it has been so dark and gloomy in the mornings that the change is near. Winter is coming, as they…
