I was lucky to have one extra day off and visit my old home town Turku in southwestern Finland, it takes 2 hours to travel from Helsinki to Turku. Enjoyed my morning coffee on a train with a pile of December issues of fash mags that had somehow accumulated on the kitchen counter.... Anyhow, Turku is the 2011 European Capital Of Culture and so a fresh example of the richness of culture traditions in this town is the annual Taina Kovalainen dance studio's Christmas Special @ Sigy's Hall. So I went to see it with my sisters.

Amazing show, Taina and her students nailed it, like always - choreographies were intence from jazz to hip hop, and on top of that the costumes varied from white boyfriend shirts buttoned up and tied, to pussycatdoll-like corsets and chicago sequin dresses. The next day met up with some friends and couldn't resist buying some extra christmas presents and a couple of pairs of new leggings from pre-christmas discount sales before taking a train back home....

Christmas is just around the corner my little fashion monsters! Have you bought all the christmas gifts yet or do you always leave the holiday hustle to the very last day? This year I made an exception and did the opposite, I've bought every single present in time and with some serious thought too. There are so many people I want to thank and surprise this year, it's not even funny :D

Spent a refreshing weekend with some friends at Tahko (one of Finland's many skiing centers). After that it has snowed so much  in Helsinki too tho that you seriously could ski to work here. The city has started the Operation Snow War❞ to clean up the streets from the snow, but at least for now it just keeps snowing more and more, icing the whole city with a thick, shimmery snow blanket.   

And now let's get to the chase - Christmas came early this year for me! Got a Canon EOS 40D and seriously this is the best christmas present a fashion blogger could dream of, right? ❤ My sweetheart really knows how to put a smile on my face - and not just a smile, but some slightly enthusiastic screams and a few jumps up and down! :D So from now on I'll be posting even more often since I now have the 40D at home (and everywhere I go)!

Us Finns celebrate our independence day on 6th of Dec. It's a day off for everyone here - well, almost. I've spent my whole day at work and afterwards will head to Turku to visit my parents and litte sis. So what's our independence day have to do with fashion then? Well, a lot. In Finland every 6th of Dec our president invites the most successful people of the year to her (yes that's correct, we have a female president) Presidential Castle and holds a reception that includes performers, champagne and plenty of especially created dishes for this event. And here's the catch - the thing that really gets public's attention every single year are the gowns worn there. Here are just some of my fave dresses of the past years....

Stopped by after work to my favorite store everrrr Helsinki10. They sell adorable finnish design products there next to finest gorgeous designer shoes and clothes. Everytime I walk into that store I'm just so overwhelmed by their beautiful scandinavian interior decor, carefully chosen collections and the fact that I could buy any piece in that store, let me tell you dear readers! It's definitely a place worth for a visit if there is a side of you that desires unique, scandinavian and beautiful things. Found several pieces (heels, bags, jewellery, maxi dresses etc.) for spring that'll be useful and definitely hanging in my closet sometime soon....
