A week in Helsinki


I spent the majority of my last week in Helsinki, where my days consisted of walking, shopping, more walking and reading.


I arrived at a good time with all the sales in full blast (and restocked no vital pieces such as a cute LBD from &other stories and really neat mom jeans from Zara. Oh, and a new pair of cream coloured Palladium boots!). 
I also visited the Ateneum museum where they held the Alvar Aalto exhibition. Aside from Aalto's funky chairs and lounge seats, his sketches and photos of his buildings were on display. And I was pleasantly surprised some pieces from Picasso, Toulouse-Lautrec, Léger and other modernists and dadaists were on dislpay. 

Me and my mom went on a cute coffee date to Fazer cafe to celebrate Friday. Seems like veganism is even bigger in Finland, as even Fazer cafe has readjusted their menu and I could easily find quite a few options there. Fun fact, since we're already speaking about coffee: I took my mom to Starbucks on Sunday and it was her first time hahaha it was so cute!
Friday was probably one of the most eventful days, as Kristiana and Enelin were also visiting Helsinki. Since we never managed to meet up while in Tallinn, we spontaneously set up a date and met up in Esplanade park, where we had a few drinks and talked for hours.
