Hygge with Pandora

July 10, 2017

Hygge, a Norwegian word for “wellbeing” or in my “books” known as hedonism! 🙂 I guess that by now, everybody has heard about Hygge and an art of living in a cosy, high quality, self loving way. At first I thought that the word was silly and all those books which were being sold out on “how to hygge” were too hipster. I gave the whole wellbeing movement a second thought and I have realised that leading hygge way of life is one of the best things you can do for yourself! Continue Reading…

Visit Helsinki: Lunch at Gaijin

March 23, 2017

I’m back with the new post for one of my favourite sections on the blog: “Visit Helsinki”. I’m always asked by many where to go, what to see or where to eat when visiting Helsinki and I’m always more than happy to give suggestions and help out to experience (and taste) Helsinki at it’s best. 🙂

One of my favourite recommendations on where to go and eat, because as a self proclaimed, certified foodie and bon vivant, I’m always keeping my eyes and ears open on what good new spots have opened up in the city as well as what’s on the offer in some of the good, old favourites such as Gaijin!  Continue Reading…

Yumetastic dinner

March 2, 2017

After a short break, I’m back with a new review in my cycle of “Visit Helsinki” posts. I have to admit that at some point I felt fed up with those (this coming from a true foodie and bon vivant sounds silly :D) and taking a short breather was just what I wanted and needed. I got ecstatic writing this post and bringing back the reviews of new and interesting places to visit in Helsinki as well as revisit some of the all time favourites.  Continue Reading…

Visit Helsinki: Fisken på disken

December 29, 2016

In the beginning of this month a long awaited 5th floor in Kamppi shopping mall got a huge facelift or shall I say a complete makeover?! Everybody was waiting for many months to see the final reveal of “Kortteli”. After years of having a dull, not well used space with a ton of potential it finally got completely redesigned and the space got filled with a so called food block.

Good food with Foodora

December 22, 2016

In the middle of this whole hustle and bustle around Christmas time and having to wrap up so much work, home errands and what not, it came in super handy to get a nice treat delivered by Foodora, the food delivery service which originates from Berlin but is successfully operating in many different countries, including Finland.

I’ve been writing about my experience with Foodora in a few previous posts like here and here. Since darkness and cold have been pretty much an “everyday life” in Helsinki for a while now, I’ve been craving just warm, comfort food all the time.

Mussles in white wine

December 9, 2016

It’s time for a gourmet moment on my blog! I’d like to share one of my childhood favourite dishes has been mussels in a white wine, more known to Mediterranean people as “buzara sauce”. This dish is so simple to prepare, but very rich in flavour and even though, it doesn’t look like there is much to eat, it does fill you up very well!
