How grandiose can be an airport hotel? I have always avoided staying at the airport hotels, unless that was the only option due to my flights either taking off too early or being canceled. Even with that, I have stayed at the airport hotels maybe 3 or 4 times. When I do travel abroad, I’m not your super cool “Airbnb” gal which scores big time some super cool place for the fraction of the price you’d pay for staying at 4 or 5 star hotels. When I travel, I do want to have everything ” top notch ” and feel like I’m treating myself every moment of the trip. Great hotel with the high standard services and policies is one of the major links of making the most of my trip and being 100% satisfied with the money spent on, as I like to say, pure hedonism.
There are some places in Helsinki to which I always gladly return to.If they happen to have great service, are in the city center and are serving a delicious food, most likely you’ll find me sitting at those places while satisfying my inner hedonist which never sleeps. Continue Reading…
Do bold, do Pandora! One of the most interesting, flattering and exciting campaigns I’ve done in the history of my blog is exactly the one with Pandora. As I have announced already, I’m happy to continue my collaboration with this jewellery giant that was founded back in 1982 and has ever since, together with Swarovski and Tiffany’s been the most profitable and sought after jewellery name!
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!

Good Monday morning my dear readers! How are you? Weekend went well? 🙂 Did you make any plans for the most romantic day of the year yet? Yes, Valentine’s Day is already tomorrow and all I’ve been seeing and hearing about for the past two weeks was everything and anything related to Valentine’s Day.
Welcome to the first “Sunday cafe” this year. I’m very happy to continue introducing you to the bunch of unique, inspiring and talented people and friends that I’m surrounded by which are fully “adopted” Finns as myself. 🙂
Good Sunday dear readers! I’m back with my Sunday cafe in which I’m happy to present you young and inspiring creative minds which I’ve met here in Finland that aren’t Finnish or in today’s “case” a wonderful persona in form of my brother, somebody who’s been visiting Finland for many years and has been influenced by it in numerous ways.
I have two brothers and I was lucky to have my older brother stay with me for the whole month of November. I couldn’t pass on the opportunity to sit down with this young gentleman and “attack” him with some questions for Sunday cafe. I’m proud of you bro and I love you! This is what he has to say to my “interrogating”:
I’ve always been a lover of delicate, feminine, timeless pieces, esp. when it comes to jewellery! I’m a jewellery lover and feel “naked” if I’m not wearing at least one piece on me… Somehow, I feel that none of my looks or outfits aren’t ready unless I have put on that perfect final touch with a favourite jewellery item.
What are the odds that while visiting middle of North Europe, Helsinki, you get to experience the charm and romance of Paris? It is possible at restaurant Pastis! Authentic Parisian vibe, delicious food and coziness of the restaurant’s decor could be easily misplaced with any place in Montmartre for instance. Our sweet hostes Camilla told us that there are many Pastis named restaurants in Europe ( in US too, for example in NYC ) but there is only one Pastis in Helsinki and it’s a must visit place.
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. 🙂
