Hi, I’m so happy you’re here!

I am Selja and I live in Helsinki, Finland. I work in hospitality and love to spend my time traveling, day-dreaming and trying to lead a happy, healthy and balanced life.

In my late twenties I have truly realized that life is only temporary. It’s an adventure, and not much seems to happen by accident. I like to think that we experience little mini adventures that are each a piece of one, huge adventure the size of life itself.

Because life can be so overwhelming and the days go by so fast, I wanted to start writing those adventures down โ€“ to be able to capture, share and remember them, but also to be able to appreciate them fully.

I squeal at every single animal I see, and if you ask my boyfriend the same happens with most handbags. I’m also an aviation geek, a supermarket nerd, and my brain has a tendency of storing all the useless bits and pieces of information it comes across.

Having two forms of alopecia in one head used to make me feel depressed and self-conscious, until I decided to stop feeling sorry for myself, buy a wig and get on with my life. This is the magical reason why I have more hair in some pictures than in others. ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s Selja is about my life, about the things I love and enjoy โ€“ travel, health and life in general. It’s all about saying yes to new adventures – adventures in life, style, seeing the world and trying new things. It’s about things that inspire me and hopefully you as well.

Thank you for joining me on my adventures, hope you’ll enjoy your time here. Please use the buttons on the sidebar to say hello and follow me!
