Free but fun more present in Instagram

Seems to me I don’t have so much time for writing anymore, so it seems maybe Instagram is better suited for sharing quick tips. Like us kicking off our ice-skating season today while the Autumn rain is pouring down. No long sentences needed, just a picture and a few words. You’ll find me @vilmafbf.

My Weeks as a Single Mum

A couple of years ago a bunch of Singaporean mothers did a blog train on the after hours of a full time working mum. I thought it was most insightful to read how others made the years work that in Finnish are called ruuhkavuodet, “the rush hour years”.  Even though I find our weeks busy, […]

To Us

At the start of a new year people are often reviewing the previous year and making new resolutions for the next year. This blog is mostly not that deep, and is more of an outlet for little superficial ideas that makes our life fun. But I read less superficial blogs too, and I loved the […]

Crafts in Order and Page for travel in Finland

New Page

When I set this blog up, I decided to focus on four free but fun themes that are a natural part of my life.While blogging about these, I noticed one more theme arising somewhere in the area of finances and life style choices, so I’ve created a new page to give an overview on these […]

Best of This Blog This Year

Gallivance set a trend by listing the top 10 post based on stats and comments. I love their style and their travel blog, but as I am pretty new to the blogging world their top 10 included interesting posts I had missed. So I thought it was cool to see other blogging friends to do […]

Blogging has lead me to “meet” some awesome people around the world. Some of these have nominated me for awards, and even though I am slow to accept them, I am taken by the nominations! You can read here why I initially started this blog, but since I’ve gotten “sucked into” the blogging world;  I’ve […]
