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.

As I spent the last weekend celebrating my friend's bachelorette party, it's time to lift the feet up and just take it easy this Saturday. The theme of the bachelorette bash was police, and we even got to try Megazone, which is a game where different teams combat with laserguns. Gotta admit I had certain prejudices against the idea of the game, but it actually turned out so much fun and even captivating, I'd say! Afterwards, as I went over the events of the day for M, he laughed up his sleeve and mumbled something like "girls playing war, that should've been captured on the video".
Viime viikonloppu sujui pitkälti ystäväni polttareiden merke ...

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 ...

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! ...

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 ...
