This weird trick will make your hair pop


OK – confession time. I am terrible when it comes to taking care of my hair. I swear I drive my poor (but awesome) hairdresser to desperation with the terrible mane he has to sort every month or so.  That is… until I discovered this neat little trick.     See, my problem is that I wash my hair every…

Why it’s important to set personal boundaries


  We’ve all been there, I’m 100% sure of it. We’ve taken in a cruel comment from someone as part and parcel of that friendship, we’ve accepted hurtful behaviour from our romantic partners, we’ve taken on extra work we don’t actually want or even can do and we’ve definitely all at one point or another failed at loving and forgiving…

It’s official: pins are cool again


Alright folks, newsflash: pins are cool again.   You heard me. We all remember the 90’s when literally everyone was covered head-to-toe with pins – band pins, fan pins, statement pins, those tacky “peace” signs… it was a question of quantity over quality.

How to survive a hangover at work


  Oh don’t look at me like that – we’ve all been there. Maybe you had one cocktail too many (or in my case, five) or missed the last bus so you thought “well, since I’m gonna have to take a taxi anyway I might as well have one more glass of wine” and that turned into shots of tequila…

How to be brave (and what does that mean)


Let me tell you a secret: bravery is not the absence of fear. While you let thank sink in, allow me to elaborate.   I fear many things. I fear rejection, I fear failure, I fear something terrible happening to me or my loved ones, especially right now with what’s going on in the world. I also have this weird…

On Wednesday (06.12) Finland celebrated its 100th birthday – my Motherland has been independent for a full century and guys, that’s really awesome. We Finns are known for our somewhat lacking social skills, fecking cold winters and most notably Angry Birds but there’s so many more reasons to love the little country that gave you Nokia (among other things). I’ll…
