I’VE BEEN BRUNCHIN’
Approximately one week ago, I spent my Sunday morning in central Finland in Jyväskylä where my friend Anna lives. Me and my two friends had arrived at Anna’s place Saturday afternoon and we were planning on spending the day eating delicious food, drinking wine and simply enjoying each other’s company. Us girls have known each other for 20 years already (we had planned throwing a party to celebrate the achievement but somehow all the other plans relating to work etc. got in the way). Anna has such a gorgeous apartment that, when arriving at their place, it actually took a while taking in the all the beauty. The colour scheme of their home is m ...

5 FACTS ABOUT ME
Hey peeps! Today, as I found myself missing summer, I decided to write a "throwback thursday" kind of post for you, even though it's Sunday already. The pictures in this post were taken in June as we were celebrating my graduation by taking a trip to the French Riviera. Also, I really like posts where bloggers tell a few, somewhat awkward things about themselves. And by doing this myself, I decided to add a little twist in this post you're reading right now.
Heippa! Tänään tuli ikävä kesää ja ajattelin toteuttaa tällaisen "throwback"-tyyppisen postauksen muistelemalla meidän kesäkuista matkaamme Ranskan rivieralle. Ja koska olen aina nauttin ...

Hey peeps! Here's a few snapshots I would like to share with you, I've taken these photos during the last few weekends that have gone by. This week, I've been feeling a little under the weather which can quite well be noticed in the recent lack of posts here on Arctic Vanilla. Rather sooner than later, as I will bounce back from the flu, the blog will be updated as usual. Really looking forward to that! The last two weekends I have spent celebrating in different wedding-related events. Last weekend, my charming friend and his fiancé got married which we celebrated with a three-course dinner in a lovely, Michelin-star restaurant here in Helsin ...

ALL-TIME FAVORITE BLOGS OF MINE
1.) 5 Inch and Up by Sandra Hagelstam
Even though the numbered order doesn't necessarily reflect my personal ranking of the blogs, I gladly chose to begin the listing with the most internationally distinguished Finnish fashion blogs. 5 Inch and Up is definitely among the most professional personal style blogs in Finland. Sandra seems to take everything she does whole-heartedly, and that's one of the reasons I can't wait for the launch of her River Island shoe collection.
Vaikkei numerojärjestys tietyn blogin paremmuutta suhteessa toiseen heijastelisikaan, halusin aloittaa listauksen suomalaisella, kansainvälisen tason huippublogeihin kuuluv ...

When visiting my friend's parents' summerhouse, another friend of mine got an idea. Why not wash out the labels of some Happy Joe cider bottles and make them flower vases instead? No sooner said than done, she had put her inventive idea into action.
Viettäessämme viikonloppua kaverini vanhempien kesämökillä eräs ystävistäni sai kivan idean. Hän keksi liuottaa Happy Joe -siideripulloista etiketit, keräsi maastosta toinen toistaan suloisempia kukkia ja asetteli ne aikaisemmin pulloina toimineisiin maljakoihin.
This was one of the few weekends I had the chance to enjoy the relaxation of the Finnish sauna and also swim in a lake afterwards. I ...

Last Saturday, we had the privilege to celebrate this smart, beautiful girl as she graduated from high school. Their home garden is full of white and pink flowers, and as it is the end of May, the garden was in full bloom. Naturally, we had to take advantage of the wonderful garden, so we snapped these photos.
Lauantaina tämän upean sukulaistyttömme päähän painettiin ylioppilaslakki, jota olimme ylppäreissä mukana juhlistamassa. Tyttöjen kotipuutarhassa kukki valtoimenaan valkeat ja vaaleanpunaiset kukat, emmekä tietysti malttaneet olla nätillä pihalla räpsimättä muutamaa kuvaa.
In addition to the recent high-school graduate, you can als ...

LULLABY FOR A REALIST
Top - Zara
Lipstick - Chanel
Necklaces - MBMJ & Jennifer Zeuner
Today is a special day as this post is my very first here on Arctic Vanilla. So, let's start with the basics. My name is Anna, and I'm living here in Helsinki. I'm a medical student and I've been studying medicine for six years now. Here in Finland medical school actually lasts six years, which means my graduation is approaching soon and I'm gonna be a proper adult in just a few months (I doubt the latter, though). So exciting! My blog isn’t about medicine, however. I created Arctic Vanilla to escape the world of science every once in a while and to enjoy all the wonderful ...
