Where might I be going this weekend.......

I don't have any check-in luggage, so all liquids have to be under 100ml. Aren't these travelsized items just the cutest?

Been brunching and eating well 💜 Berlin is heaven for good food, I'm dying here. I started this separate Instagram account to post all my food pics, go follow "whattoeatinberlin" if interested. Since I've been eating so much I finally got myself a gym membership last week. Been there every other day so I'm super proud of myself! Hope I'll keep going even after the normal 'new year new me' ideal is again forgotten.

Yesterday we increased the christmas spirit by walking around in Porvoo old town. Cozy✨ Can't believe it's Christmas eve tomorrow! Last year we were in Asia on Christmas so this year I've been waiting for Christmas like crazy. Love everything about it - the decorations and cozyness, people's secretive behavior when they're trying to hide something regarding presents, listening to christmas songs, playing christmas songs on the piano, baking gingerbreads and christmas sweets, coming up with rhymes for presents, eating christmas food together, wrapping up presents in pretty papers and decorating with bows and string, spending time with family, just to mention a few. Today the Christmas celebrations start with dinner with D's family.❤

The christmas cards we sent out this year had customized stamps on them 🙊

Yesterday I watched the entire 1st and 2nd season of Skam. In one day. Haha. I was wrapping gifts and baking and whatnot at the same time and had it open in front of me, talk about multitasking. Completely hooked! If you haven't watched it yet, go see. Some things are maybe a bit naive but all in all I love it! Today I was at the school again ❤️ The whole school went to christmas church together and I almost melted when the cuties performed christmas songs. My boyfriend is coming to Finland tonight (wohooooo) so I need to wrap the last presents before that. Love the holidays❤️

Everybody has been talking so much about the Norwegian tv-serie "Skam" I have to see what the hype is about myself. Taking all morning off and binging as many episodes as I can! 👌🏼

The day started with brunch at Southpark with the Hanken girls💕

Afterwards I baked Christmas sweets with my sister for several hours. We made 7 different ones: christmas fudge, gingerbread truffles, chocolate truffles, butterscotch, rice chocolate, salty liquorice caramels and chocolate caramels. They were so yummie! I'll give some to friends and family as holiday gifts and some we'll eat on Christmas ourselves. Yum! I can put a link to the recipes tomorrow.

Yesterday was such a wonderful day. First I was substituting again at the elementary school. I was filled with happiness the second I walked in, I so feel like I belong right there when I'm there. I saw many of the kids I had in the beginning of the semester and they all came and hugged me when they saw me. One of the kids in the class I had yesterday said that the moment she heard their teacher was sick she wished they'd have me as a substitute teacher. And I had never had her class before so I don't know how she even knew me! They all make me so happy and every time I leave I feel content, "work" has never felt so inspiring.

In the evening we went to Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra's concert. It was so awesome, I was in complete zen the entire concert through. Don't think all of you know but I'm such a classical music nerd. I worked/sang at the Finnish National Opera when I was 8-14 years old, and loved it. When all other kids bought Britney Spears cd's I listened to Ravel and Beethoven. There's something so magical about great classical music. I smiled the entire concert through and my cheeks hurt afterwards. They played Beethoven's 9th symphony - ahh the magic✨ Someone might say my day wasn't that special but in all its ordinary glory it was one of the best days in a long time. Good music truly is food for the soul.
