Things I want to do this Summer

Summer can be stressful, if you worry about making the best out of it and try to do as much as possible. I mean, I can’t be the only one already worrying about the warm nights disappearing soon. But what if this year you focused on actually relaxing and enjoying the littlest of things? I’m speaking to myself, of course. The queen of stress.

At first I thought about skipping the whole summer bucket listing thing, but then I decided to make a new version of it: the no-stress summer bucket list.

My no-stress Summer Bucket List

Try new ice cream flavors
I’m stuck on my favorite ones, but you got to make life exciting, right?

Make a mojito for a friend
BaRisto is already open and mojito tastes just as good as I remembered. I’m pretty sure I make the best mojito ever – thanks to having the best teacher (you’ll never guess who). Maybe I should share the recipe here?

Visit Porvoo at least once
This is actually a tradition with Risto. He took me on a date to Porvoo on our first summer together and ever since we’ve done day trips there regularly. It’s a lovely, beautiful little city with nice cafes and restaurants. And the best decoration store, where we always look at things, but never buy. If you’re visiting Helsinki during summer, and you have time, I urge you to to make a day trip to this beautiful city. This one I could actually already check out, since we went to Porvoo a while ago. But who knows – maybe we’ll go again!

– Run a half marathon
This might not sound stress-free to everyone, but I actually run pretty regularly. We also have a tradition with my sisters to run our own half marathon every summer (if we’re in the same country). So this year as well we’re running that 21 km, but we’re doing it casually. I’m not focused on getting it to a certain time. I just want to run and have fun!

Have a birthday party
It just so happens, that a five is creeping up in front of the two on my written age. I’m turning 25 soon and I figured I have to drink to that.

Have a holiday
I’m also planning on keeping a little holiday at the end of July. So it’s gonna be at least a week without my laptop and blogging. I spend so much time just sitting and working on my content, that a little break does me good. And no, you won’t really see the holiday here. I’ll have some posts scheduled.

Have a no-makeup day
Or two. Or a dozen. Freckles and beach hair it is.

– SUP AKA Stand Up Paddle
Supping is really fun! You get to enjoy the sea, the weather and get a nice little exercise at the same time. I did this last year and I definitely want to do it again.

And that’s it! I definitely don’t feel stressed about this list. Just the opposite actually – I can’t wait for my holiday and all these weekends and nights I have to dedicate on enjoying life. We’re not doing any big trips this time, but we did plan a little getaway to Estonia. Tallinn is such a beautiful city and what’s best is that it’s so close.

What are some things on your Summer Bucket List?

Summer style lookbook


How happy can a woman get for not having to wear jackets and sturdy shoes? Very happy, let me tell you. I’ve kissed all my warm clothes goodbye and switched them up to shorts, skirts, tops and everything that feels light and breezy.

It’s about time I really start sharing my outfits here more often, so here we go. I wanted to do a lookbook, since those are something that I love to watch from youtube. Usually they give me new ideas when it comes to the clothes I already own (and okay, I’ll admit it: they also make me want to buy new clothes). Hopefully you’ll get some inspiration from this post as well!

SUMMER OUTFIT 1 – Light nude colors

Can’t go wrong with nudes, right? Nude colors are so easy for someone who’s used to wearing black (quilty). It’s a colorful version of it, if that makes sense.

The first outfit is perfect for a date. I actually wore this for our 6-year anniversary date. This outfit is very classic and beautiful, but best of all, very comfortable. I pay attention to the fabrics of my clothes. Here the top is 90% silk and shorts are 100% cotton. I love good quality clothes.

Since I wore light nude colors, I chose a bright orange red lipstick as a pop of color.

SUMMER OUTFIT 2 – Crochet crop top

The second outfit is very girly and cute, thanks to the rosy tones and the bow detail in my hair. The star of the show, however, is a cream colored crochet crop top. It’s actually handmade by a Finnish blogger named Iines. As soon as I saw her crochet crop top collection I knew Î had to get one. I’ve been dreaming of a cute top like this for a long time!

Here I also wore the same shorts and bag than in the first outfit. I wanted to show in this lookbook, that not everything has to be new and different. It’s okay to wear the same thing more than twice!

This outfit is probably closest to what I’m actually wearing day to day. Definitely not heels. This year I decided that sandals are cool and I’ve been loving these black ones. Sincerely, almost 25 year-old Charlotta, with happy feet. Besides, they go perfectly with my newest black bag.

The black silk shirt is from H&M and I was pleasantly surprised with its quality.
