Life Hack #5 - Save Money

How about SAVING SOME MONEY this year? Here's something I found on Pinterest: a money saving challenge that seems like relatively easy-piecey to do. At least in the beginning... Maia and I are so doing this! We've actually already SPENT the money: a new MacBook Air for me and and iPad Mini for her in December. CAN'T WAIT!!!!!

The instructions from this BLOG are extremely simple:

Here's the name of the game!
Each week of the year, you save that much in dollars!
Week ONE: You save $1
Week TWO: You save $2
Week THREE: You save $3

I Am Wearing - Hospital Outfit

I went to the hospital for eye surgery and was back really quick. I was not even supposed to stay overnight but did cause things got delayed and by the evening I was still pretty out of it with all the painkillers I'd been given. So far so good. I am now resting home and getting ready for my first real check-up on Friday. Let's see what my wonderful doctor says - did the surgery work out or not. And let's hope it did.

I was told to dress comfy for that day, so I opted for jeans, a sweater, Uggs and a little Longschamps clutch with some cash, cards, phone and lipbalm inside - I NEVER go anywhere without a lipbalm.

What's funny in these pics, is that you can sort of see that I am a bit scared, don't you think?

Sunday Bread

One of the many many things I wanted to improve this year was my family's diet. Healthier, cleaner, lighter. And as part of that, for more than a month now, I have planned to start baking our own bread on weekends. Bread from the store, you see, contains many ingredients I don't like: sugar for instance.

So, on Sunday I finally got my act together and baked. White flour, milk, yeast, just a little sugar and salt and voilá, a fine bread it became. There aren't many things that smell better than fresh bread just out of the oven. The kids love it and so do I.

You'll find the recipe HERE (in Finnish).
