5 x Recommendation for This Week

noorajapakunoora_uusitalo_paku

Gosh, my Christmas Holiday is finally starting on next week’s Friday, can’t wait! I have been very busy with work, which is why I haven’t had time to post here in a while. But today I decided to share some favorites and recommendations for you guys 🙂

1. The Crown
The second season of the Crown is now on Netflix – and it is perhaps even better then the first one. I just love Claire Foy and Vanessa Kirby in it!

2. Sia’s Christmas Album
Good choice if you are tired of the old classics but still want to listen to some carols. My favorites are Snowman and Sunshine.

3. &Other Stories Shower Foam
I love Rituals’ shower foam, but they don’t unfortunately sell it in Finland. Was so happy to notice that &Other Stories have now added couple shower foams to their collection!

4. Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask
In the winter my skin gets dry sometimes, so these masks are the bomb (see what I did there) 😀 I have been using them like once a week this fall and winter.

5. Kevin Murphy Bedroom Hair
This is probably the best product ever, for my hair at least. It is a light, flexible and texturizing hairspray (for me it feels like a mix of a light hairspray, salt spray and dry shampoo, if that makes any sense).

Celine Spring 2018

Spring might seem a tad far away, but it is not too soon the get inspired.

So what should we wear next spring? Something like khaki suits with big shoulders and side-pleated skirts or trousers with double-layered, looped-up trench coats as well as belted coats. Those black block-heeled ankle boots with mismatch brooch-like jewelry on either toe on the last photo look so great.

Christmas mood in Helsinki

I have allowed myself to drink glögi already (for like one month) but decorations and carols I have been saving for December. Can’t wait to bake some gingerbread and listen to Michael Bubble or maybe the “Home Alone” soundtrack 😉

Yesterday was the opening of the Christmas Street and on Saturday the Helsinki Christmas market will open at the Senate square. This year there will also be a sauna at the market, how cool and how very Finnish 😀

Woke up today and it was snowing – but it quickly turned into rain, buhuu. November is probably the gloomiest month ever here in Finland; no snow and very little daylight.

This afternoon we will go and see the opening of Aleksanterinkatu Christmas Street at 4 pm, it will probably be packed but hopefully cozy nevertheless.

For the sake of Black Friday (and the fact that I have been scrolling through so many flight deals the whole afternoon trying to find something really good) here are some throwback photos from past travels. Missing my tan and all my pretty summer sandals, haha 😀

Have a great weekend, we are gonna go and see the new Poirot tonight.

Lady Di

This week I watched a documentary about Princess Diana from Netflix called “The Story of Diana”. I was seven when she tragically died so I can’t say I would actually remember much about her, but gosh have I read and hear about her afterwards? Yes.

But what I didn’t know is that she was only 19 when she married Charles and they had only met around 12 times before the wedding! That’s crazy.

She might have become an icon, famous for her beauty and fashion choices (and of course, her marriage to the prince). But aside from these, she was at some point patron of over 100 charities across the globe. After her divorce from Charles, she developed a reputation for working tirelessly on behalf of charitable causes, using her fame to raise awareness of a number of highly important humanitarian issues of the day; like AIDS,  young homeless people and land mines.

In a world like this, we surely would need more people like Diana.

Gosh where did this weekend go? Work was so busy during the week that I guess my mind is still somewhere else.

Me and Eva went for a little walk in Ullanlinna today and snapped these photos while there. Now watching some Netflix and foam rolling, trying to relax and get ready for the starting work week 🙂

Have a chill evening!

Today we had pizza in Via Tribunali (which is always totally packed) and strolled around a bit in the centre. The weather was so strange when we took these photos – the sun was shining and then it all of a sudden started raining, what is this sorcery! 😀

Now we are back home and will build a little tent on the sofa and watch 70’s show from Netlifx (we just finished the second season of Stranger Things yesterday, it was so good!!).

Have a nice day!
