4 Years Old

WordPress just congratulated me on my anniversary. Apparently it’s four years since I registered my blog. Cool. Not that I have been blogging the whole time, kept a yearlong break between Spring 2012 and Spring 2013. But still. Happy Anniversary to Management by Chia. This beautiful card is from The Two Pink Ladies.   Advertisements

Updates on Management by Chia

Warning. This will be the most boring post you’ve read on Management by Chia perhaps ever. Some of you might have noticed a new ”button” here on my blog:  Follow me on bloglovin’. For those of you not yet familiar with bloglovin’, it’s a simple and aesthetically nice blog reader. Like a Facebook feed but […]

“We do not stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing!”*

You get a card. Enclosed is the information-leaflet-thingy from a non-stick cooking pan. The card says “Do read the enclosed and play ‘spot the most ridiculous sentence’…” First you laugh at the whole set-up. Then you choke on your laughter, what if you cannot spot the sentence your friend is referring to? Will that make […]

We Are All Wonder Women

“The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights”  – Gloria Steinem With this wonderful picture from artists Sarah and Catherine Satrun I’d like to wish you all a wonderful day.

True story.

To Fringe or Not to Fringe…

You funny people, you amuse me… Meeting people over lunch or a drink these last few days, the first thing they will do is look at my hair (if it’s in a bun) and ask if I’ve done it yet.. The answer, good people, is no. It’s still two weeks until March, and I will […]

I Need a Haircut!

Over the years I’ve shown you a fair share of my hair here on Management by Chia, and as I know many of my readers are people who know me in real life as well, I’m going to do a little experiment. Once this hibernation ends, come March, I need to do something about the […]

24 Days ’til the End (of Hibernation)

…and the feeling when you get out of bed and realise you’ve slept with your window open the whole night. In Finland. In February. Oh well, there’s a first for everything I guess. And yes. I do remember. Some of you [weirdos] sleep with them open all year round. Right here in Finland. But I […]

Wednesday rubbish.

Absolutely amazing. I just scrolled through the current spam queue and found a new gem that I wanted to share with you. The sky really is the limit using the type of fish you can grow. I haven’t got the slightest clue what they are talking about, and to be fair, I don’t think they […]

Scooby Doom

Six month old pup started chewing through Christmas pressies when owners went shopping. Ended with windows blown out and sofa on fire… (Yes, the pup survived. All well that ends well)

Why being lazy is bad for your body

“Who is strong? He that can conquer his bad habits.” – Benjamin Franklin I’m making a late resolution for 2014. I’m going to spend 15 min each day on the damned training programme the torturer gave me last October. This huge revelation came to me earlier today during this short conversation I had with the […]


Couldn’t resist this little fellow… Happy Monday, people!
