POSTCARDS FROM PARIS – PART 3
We started our third and last whole day in Paris by having a little shopping spree on Avenue Montaigne. The avenue is bordered by beautiful boutiques by practically all the major luxury brands. Here's where I bought my little Chanel, first of a kind. Making the decision of which bag to choose wasn't exactly the easiest I've made. Kolmannen, ja siten viimeisen, päivämme Pariisissa aloitimme suuntaamalla Avenue Montaignen putiikkeihin. Luksusbrändien reunustamalta ostoskadulta tarttui mukaan jo asukuvissa debytoinut pieni Chanelini. Päätös siitä, mikä laukku oli juuri minulle täydellinen, ei ollutkaan sitten aivan helpoimmasta päästä. E ...

TEA TIME AT L’ADURÉE
So, finally we get to continue our Paris travel diary. This time, I've chosen these L'adurée photos to beautify this post. For our first night in Paris, we had chosen Semilla restaurant, situated in Saint-Germain-des-Prés area, as our go-to dinner place. If you find yourself in Paris and in need of an excellent restaurant, the exact adress is 54 rue de Seine. Semilla turned out to be a place we can unconditionally recommend! The food is cooked with Spanish influences and served with such kindness that I'd love to visit the place again as soon as possible. No niin, nyt pääsemme vihdoin jatkamaan Pariisin matkapäiväkirjaa, tällä kertaa L'aduré ...

POSTCARDS FROM PARIS – PART 2
Hey! Here's another set of snapshots we photographed in Paris. In France, we stayed overnight at a hotel called Le Pavillon des Lettres, which is quite nicely situated in the 8th arrondissement. It took only 500 metres of walk from our hotel to the best-known street in Paris, the Champs-Élysées. Like probably so many of you, we're always putting location first when scouting hotels. "Location, location, location!" could definitely be our mantra, too. Heipparallaa! Tässä toinen setti fiilistelykuvia Pariisista. Ranskassa yövyimme hotellissa nimeltä Le Pavillon des Lettres, jonka sijainti oli mitä parhain Pariisin 8. kaupungiosassa lyhyen, 500 ...

POSTCARDS FROM PARIS – PART 1
Taking beautiful pictures while vacationing in Paris isn't hard at all. Hoping to cheer up your Wednesday afternoon by sharing these photos of the city that I don't think I could ever get tired of. More pictures from Paris are coming up here on AV as soon as I'll find the time from the quite busy work schedule of mine. Looking forward to it already! Kauniiden kuvien ottaminen ei Pariisissa totta tosiaan ole vaikeaa. Tässä keskiviikkoaamupäivänne iloksi muutamia satunnaisia otoksia tuosta iki-ihanasta kaupungista, johon en varmasti koskaan kyllästyisi. Lupaan latailla tänne AV:aan lisää kuvia heti, kunhan työkiireiltäni blogin puolelle jällee ...

BACK FROM PARIS!
Greetings from autumnal Paris! As I am writing this, the time is half past seven in the morning, and I really gotta hurry to get to work on time. Just wanted to stop by and say  a quick hello. Our vacation in Paris was so lovely, missing it already. Lots of posts we shot in Paris coming up later, including some outfit pictures, naturally. Have a great week peeps! Terveisiä syksyisestä Pariisista! Kello on tätä kirjoittaessani puoli kahdeksan aamulla, ja jotta ehtisin ajoissa töihin, tämä taitaa nyt jäädä tällaiseksi pikaiseksi tervehdykseksi teille.

SOON, I’M OFF TO…
... Paris! On Wednesday it's time to pack our bags and head to a long-expected getaway in the most romantic city of the Western Europe. Even though we're not expecting beautifully blooming flowers or a clear blue sky, this short vacation of ours will be much needed. We only have a few things planned. To make a few calculated purchases, try out different restaurants and also to hold back rain in the cutest of cafés, that is. Let's see if we'll have either the time or the energy to check out a few museums or maybe even take a stroll through the pretentious, yet so luxurious palace of Versailles. Already looking forward to Wednesday! ... Paris! ...

WANDERLUST
Even though fall was, at one stage of my life at least, my favorite season, longing for a sunny holiday in the autumn time usually is what ends up happening. Despite the fact that I enjoy my work and all the related everyday routines very much, a short vacation under the sun would be more than welcome. Vaikka syksy oli, jossain vaiheessa ainakin suosikkivuodenaikani, ja nautin suuresti työstäni sekä arkipäivän rutiineista, kuuluu lomalle haikailu syyssäillä kai asiaan. Kun ulkona sataa eikä hämärä väisty valon tieltä päivälläkään, olisi lyhytkin täsmäisku aurinkoon enemmän kuin tervetullut. Here I've collected some of my favorite travel-r ...

POSTCARDS FROM HANKO
Hey peeps. Here's another compilation of summery photos we shot while enjoying the lovely atmosphere in Hanko! Heippa! Tässä toinen kesäinen kuvapläjäys ihanalta Hangon retkeltämme, olkaapa hyvät. Even though peonies have held on as my absolute favorite flower for quite some time now, hydrangeas can be found on the well-deserved second position on the list (now would be a great time to make notes, M). Just look at these stunners! Vaikka pionit ovat pitäneet pitkään pintansa suosikkikukkinani, hortensiat ovat nousseet viime aikoina hyväksi kakkoseksi (nyt olisi sopiva kohta tehdä muistiinpanoja, M). Katsokaa nyt näitäkin sinisiä kaunott ...

EARTH LAUGHS IN FLOWERS
"Earth laughs in flowers" is a quote by an american poet called Ralph Waldo Emerson (I'm impressed if you've heard about this guy before). Looking at these pictures, I understand exactly what he meant and couldn't agree more. I'm not sure if you still remember my "Lavender fields forever" post I wrote you a couple of weeks ago, or not. Either way, these pictures were snapped the same day when we were drinving from the town of Valensole back to the blue coast, Côte d'azur that is. I think I'll remember these gorgeous sceneries for the rest of my life. It's still baking hot here in Finland, but we luckily managed to get our hands on a fan. And ...
