My Nordic Lifestyle.

Starting Nordic Mum Podcast was a way to express my Finnish identity and how I can sprinkle some Nordic life, Hygge to other people out there. I want to show how the simple Scandinavian lifestyle can be replicated where ever you are.

My Podcast and Blog give you insight on how I apply Nordic life simplicity to my lifestyle. I interview people from the Nordics who share their journeys, and what we can learn from them.

In the past, I have blogged on a variety of topics and contributed towards articles in Mamamia , Herdacity, Rolcruise Blog, No Sidebarr and Explore Nordic I have also been a quest on several podcasts such as Dream Home Movement, Eat the Damn Bread, Dialed In, How to Live Slow and Balancing Cultures.
