Happy July, my sweetiepies! And bye-bye, my unbelievably short (barely 17 days... please do sense the sarcasm here) June vacation. Obviously I'm already secretly waiting for the next one which will hopefully and probably arrive in August and last for another fleeting 17 days. Anyway, since vacations normally stand for numerous road, sea and other types of trips, I therefore have quite a lot to tell you about and I'm immediately going to start off with our one day trip to Helsinki in Finland.
So, without further ado, two weeks ago, on June 18 we woke up crazy early (at least 5 o'clock in the morning if not even earlier) in order to drive to our metropolis Tallinn. There we quickly ditched the car and travelled to Finland's capital town Helsinki by Viking Line's ship M/S Viking XPRS. By the way, I purchased my new and sweetly pink Guess wallet (€
49 19.60) from that ship. But now about the first and very exciting thing we did in Helsinki!
Emporio Armani sunnies | Seppälä chandelier earrings, snake necklace, cuff bracelet and sneakers | ancient XX by Mexx denim jacket | thrifted Hagenfeldt knitwear | H&M dress | D&G watch | Guess purse.
We collected a capacious Helsinki related briefcase compiled by my dear (blog) friend Elisabeth from The Helsinki City Tourist & Convention Bureau. She also kindly left us two Helsinki cards and a beautiful white swan brooch from titiMadam (all their products are made only in Helsinki and London). I proudly wore my new brooch on June 23 and will now leave you a little sneak peek of that outfit.
I already found out where to buy titiMadam's products in Estonia and I'm particularly excited when it comes to their new, doggies by titiMadam collection. They even offer an incredible chance to get a custom made set of jewelry of your own dog, and believe me, I would SO wear Elvis-shaped brooch, earrings and a necklace! Such a shame I didn't know about their doggies' collection when we were in Helsinki. But all right, I'm going to tame my overly joyful emotions now, move forward and tell you about our trip to Suomenlinna.
But I believe I should really put everything in a nutshell now (even though I have so much to say in addition). We were seriously lucky with the weather since it was simply perfect. Elisabeth's help also meant a lot and it certainly made our trip breezier than it would have been otherwise. Helsinki is my kind of city and it was a great change for us. So I genuinely hope you enjoyed the story and my photos (the excellent ones who read it are obviously my favourites so you can let me know if you did because I'm curious ;) Definitely let me know what you think and I wonder if any of you have been to Suomenlinna?
