Visit Helsinki: Roster

July 21, 2016


I’ve been eagerly waiting to present you the new, hottest and most awaited opening of a restaurant in Helsinki’s food scene – Roster! In my “Visit Helsinki” section, I’m happy to write about this “newborn” but don’t be fooled, it’s partially owned by big chain of great restaurants “Royal Ravintolat” and is ran by three skilled, passionate and with a long careers in their pockets, chefs Kari Aihinen, Olli Kolu and Burt Kotkavuori, all originating from a fine dining, one of the longest standing kitchens of Savoy restaurant. Let’s not forget to mention Mr.Boss – Paul Hickman, overlooking everything and equally putting in as much love and dedication.

Olen odottanut malttamattomana sitä hetkeä että saan esitellä teille tämän uuden, hotin ja todella odotetun Helsinkiläisen ruoka skene tulokkaan, Rosterin! Olen niin iloinen saadessani esitellä teille tämän tulokkaan minun Visit Helsinki sarjassani. Mutta älkää antako tulokas sanan hämätä. Sillä sen omistaa osittain iso ketju nimeltään Royal Ravintolat. Ja sitä pyörittävät kolme taitavaa, suuren intohimon omaavaa ja jo pitkän uran tehnyttä henkilöä. Keittiömestari Kari Aihinen, Olli Kolu ja Burt Kotkavuori. Jotka kaikki tulevat yhdestä Helsingin vanhimmasta fine dining ravintolasta Savoysta. Unohtamatta Herra Pomoa Paul Hickmania. Joka valvoo koko ravintolan toimintaa, antaen yhtälailla rakkautta ja omistautuneisuutta tähän projektiin.

5 tips for Summer festivals

July 15, 2016


Summer is my most favourite time of the year! Surprise, surprise, that was SO hard to predict. 😀 Ever since I was little, I was living for Summer and everything that comes with it, endless sunshine, happy times at the beach, swimming my heart out in the sea, eating tons of ice cream and just being carefree.

Kesä on minun suosikki vuoden aika. Ylläty, yllätys, olipa vaikea arvata 🙂 Olen ihan pienestä pitäen elänyt kesälle ja kaikkeen mikä siihen liittyy. Loputon auringonpaiste, iloisia hetkiä rannalla, estoton meressä uiminen, jäätelön syöminen litra kaupalla ja huoleton fiilis.

One of the reasons why I’ve been loving Summer even more as I was growing older was ( and still is ) all of the happenings that seem to happen many times a week, every week, through the whole Summer. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with so many interesting events to go to and so many amazing Summer festivals to check out.

Yksi syy minkä takia aloin rakastamaan kesää vielä enemmän kasvettuani oli (ja on vieläkin) lukemattomien kesätapahtumien määrä. Useana päivänä viikossa, joka viikko ja ihan koko kesän ajan. Lukemattomien tapahtumien ja festivaalien määrä joihin pitäisi mennä, tekee minuun suuren vaikutuksen.

5 for Friday

April 15, 2016


Waking up to another sunny day is truly a blessing… Days have been so much brighter and longer that I can see a huge improvement in my overall wellbeing, I’m more happier, energetic and I wake up much easier than usually. I’ve been doing my best to spend as much time outdoors as possible. Even though it’s still chilly and yesterday it was a very windy day, I’m loving every single moment of this beautiful Spring weather in Finland. 🙂

As I listen to “Falling” from Twin Peaks TV series ( any fans here ?? ), I’m writing this post and after that I have a plan to spend this Friday outside, “playing tourist” in my own city, go for a long walk with my daughter and hopefully grab a first ice cream from an ice cream stand. First one this year! 🙂 Ah those small things… They’re everything!

How about you? What are you up to this weekend?

Just like past two Fridays, I’m sharing my 5 for Friday with you, 5 randomly picked photos that have marked my Instagram feed this week. I hope that you like them and if you wish, you can follow my daily wonderings around the city on my Instagram profile.

Much love to everybody!

Visit Helsinki: Saslik

October 13, 2015

Seeing that you have fell in love with my first post in new series of “Visit Helsinki” posts, I’m continuing by presenting you another gem and a “must” spot when visiting Helsinki. Being born in Russia and half Russian from my mother’s side, the respect for Russian culture, food and traditions has been deeply instilled in me. I have always loved Russian cuisine but due to me growing up in Croatia, the only time I got a chance to eat amazing Russian food was when I would visit my grandparents in Moscow, once or twice a year.
