Lifestyle, My Work

5 favourites this week

October 15, 2016

Good Saturday my dears! I’m a day late with my usual Friday roundup but I wanted to still put out a favourites post, so I’m sharing them on this Saturday morning and hoping that you’ll like it as much as my other “5 for Friday” posts. 🙂

I have a busy day reserved for the photo shoot and cooking/ baking for a birthday party ,so I’ll go straight into my 5 favourites for this week:


In the past two months, I was lucky to meet lots of new people, got to hang out more with my already existing friends, as well as friends which I “knew” but haven’t yet been able to meet until now.

Girl which I used to “know” for a long time online and thanks to being a fellow blogger and social media user, we got close and very fond of each other before meeting at all. She was on a spontaneous trip to Helsinki and I was so happy to meet her! You can check out her blog HERE . 

We had such a great time together at my 2nd home – Yume, that I’m already looking forward to seeing her again!



In the past year or two, Helsinki’s gastronomy scene bloomed to a whole new level! There have never been as many interesting, innovative, not to mention, delicious restaurants in our town. I was happy to meet with Mikko ( whom I’ve been looking fw to meet for a long time ) and have a lunch at one of the “newcomers” – restaurant OX . We went there for lunch and I must say that my carrot – ginger soup with coconut cream and zucchini tempura was so comforting and simply to die for!



I’ve been enjoying shooting a lot lately, some of the results of my Monday’s photo shoot with a Finnish actor Juha Veijonen, can be already previewed here while the photos which I took for Pandora jewellery Nordics ( blog collaboration ) and today’s photo shoot’s photos will be available to check out in the next two weeks. 🙂 Doing what I love the most is something that keeps me alive and is a fuel for creating even more in the future.



This is still “under construction” kind of mission 😀 , since I’m about to start adding some great and trendy Fall/ Winter clothing pieces and shoes to my closet. Possibly 10 years too late, but finally we have Massimo Dutti store opening in Helsinki and I have set my eyes on this velvet blazer and I’m also set on getting this Gucci bag and these Chloe boots.


I’m planning to make a whole post on health and well being but until then, I want to mention me loving my gym time. I feel that I have a good flow, energy and drive to workout well and set my “endurance bars” higher bit by bit. I love to do an insanity workout of about 1 and half hours 2-3 times a week and the rest of the week I’m “on the go” as much as possible, so that my work from laptop and hours spent sitting down in front of it, don’t get the best of me. Gym helps me to clear out my thoughts, while staying strong mentally and physically. I don’t go to the gym to loose weight, I go to the gym as a therapeutic session.

Those are my favourites and now off to some highlights from my Instagram, so if you wish to follow my daily adventures, do follow me here .

    I love your 5 for Friday post. Even on a Saturday. I wish the trees here looked like the ones in your first photo. Here the Autumn tints are only just beginning to show. And I can’t wait to skip through the fallen leaves.
    How exciting that there will bee new additions to your blog. I can’t wait
    Have a lovely weekend. Hugs, Jo
