Half blonde

Today I took the big step to dye to my hair! I have been going back and forth during months if I should do it! I so wanted to have brunette to blonde ombre, and to make sure everything did go right I was to the hairdressers to fix it. I am so happy with the end result though!

Stretching

I am not naturally flexible, so I need to do a lot of work that I am even somewhat flexible.

I remeber being 11 when I first started stretching, and I hated it. I just wanted to get the splits, but I hadn’t any patience so therefore nothing happend.

In this day I have started to learn to like stretching. My body really is craving constant stretching. It makes me feel good, to stretch. I currently can go into splits when I’m warm, and much improvement has happend since I was 11. The key to flexibility is patience, you can never start from zero and force yourself into a split.

Cruise on the Silja Line boat

Me and my mom were on a cruise on the Silja Line boat on a day to Sweden, Stockholm. We had a really great time! Here comes some pictures from the boat. I din’t have the camera with me in Stockholm.

We had a promenade room, witch means that we had a window to the promenade. We were really lucky, because our room was perfectly placed so we were able to see live acrobatics in our pyjamas from the hotel room window!

we ate some really delicious sushi in a sushi restaurang on the boat.

we also drank some ice latte and ate chocolate mousse

This shop was one of the boutiques from the promenade

and this is the overview of the promenade

A lot of yoga

As some of you may know, I’m going on a yoga camp this summer. I have never been on anything like this, and words cannot describe how excited I am. It’s a one week camp, so I really have to work my body now so I’m then capable of doing yoga all day.

I have booked one yoga class for April, and also for summer intensive in the beginning of June. These are both in Porvoo. The summer intensive is a five day long yoga class. Every morning there is 2 hours of yoga.

The yoga camp in the French Alpes, starts from 25 June until 1 July.

Why I love ballet

The truth is that I’ve always wanted to dance ballet when I was a kid. I begged my mother to take me to ballet, but I think there was no classes arranged back then. So I pretty much forgot about it for some years. I started high school, and I really craved for beginning ballet, but was too afraid to make the thought into action. It wasn’t until I saw a notice, that a beginner ballet class was arranged in my hometown when i participated the first time. That was about five years ago.

So why do I love ballet? actually, I do like everything about it. I love the hard work, that it is not easy, I love the typical classical music, the leotards, thights and skirts, I love the french names of all the movements, I love how beautiful it is done correctly, aswell as the beauty of pointe-shoes. Its also really hard muscle work, and requires flexibility. I also love to learn and to perform. No matter if its center or barré work, it’s so much fun. I love the feeling you get when you’re in class doing just a simple plié. I love the challenges of different movements, such as pirouettes and jumps. I love that ballet is versatile.

I think ballet is something I will do for many years to come, since it’s the most pleasant hobby I’ve had in my life. To dance.
