COUNTRYSIDE
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 ...

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 ...

CHECK SKIRT
If only I could teleport myself in time back into these forever memorable moments. Fortunately, thermometers in Helsinki have been showing 30 celsius degrees in the sun, and for once we haven't been been freezing in our homes and offices. Here's some outfit photos we shot in Cannes. Voisinpa jotenkin teleporttautua menneisyyteen ja takaisin kuvissa näkyviin hetkiin. Onneksi Helsingissäkin lämpömittarit ovat tänään paukkuneet, eikä ole tarvinnut kotona tai vastaanottohuoneessa ainakaan hytistä. Tässä siis Cannesin helteessä kuvattu päivän asu, olkaapa hyvät. Ruutuhame on Mangon viime kevään mallistoa. The check skirt belongs to Mango's col ...

MY MONACO
Our lovely after-work with friends ended up lasting longer than expected, which is why I didn't have quite enough time to write this Monaco-post yesterday. Nonetheless, now it's time to say goodbye to the beautiful lilliput state with these final pictures, I hope you enjoy! I've always been in love with hot food. When dining at any sushirestaurant, it's really not uncommon to find me asking for additional wasabi for two, maybe even three times. Monaco did impress us with many aspects, but the selection of Japanese restaurants wasn't one of them. Maybe it was just that we were tourists and thus not familiar with the best sushirestaurants. Täs ...

MARCHÉ AUX FLEURS
When in Nice, we visited the flower market (marché aux fleurs) the second day of us staying there. I guess you readers aren't overtaken by the fact that I couldn't resist snapping some pictures. Those piles of flowers were just too gorgeous! Toisen Nizza-päivämme ohjelmaan kuului vierailu paikallisilla kukkamarkkinoilla (marché aux fleurs). Torilla pysähdyimme ihailemaan toinen toistaan värikkäämpiä ruusukimppuja ja kukka-asetelmia, enkä tietystikään voinut vastustaa houkutusta kaivaa kamera laukun pohjalta. Tässä kuvaushetken lopputulos, olkaa hyvä! The flower market is situated on the street called Cours Saleya in the oldest part of N ...

NICE PHOTO DIARY
Here's the first part of my Nice photo diary. I simply love walking around with my Canon and shooting all the little details that catch my aesthetic eye. Tässä Nizzan kuvapäiväkirjani ensimmäinen osa. Nautin suunnattomasti kaupungin ihmettelemisestä kamera kainalossa, ja pienet, esteettistä silmää miellyttävät yksityiskohdat on aivan pakko pysähtyä tallentamaan filmille, tottakai. The second day we spent in Nice, we walked through the beautiful, legendary flower market, marché aux fleurs. I've actually thought about writing you a separate post about it! When visiting the city, don't skip walking to the hill situated in the eastern part of ...

LAVENDER FIELDS FOREVER
In the South of the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence area, we found so many beautiful flower fields, these lovely lavender farms among them. If you're looking for one of the largest lavender fields in the Southern France, Valensole (or Plateau de Valensole, to be exact) is your choice. These pictures were snapped there. Autoillessamme eteläisen Alpes-de-Haute-Provencen läpi matkalle osui useita, toinen toistaan nätimpiä kukkaviljelmiä. Valensolen kylän läheisyydessä sijaitseva Plateau de Valensole on eräs Etelä-Ranskan suurimmista laventelipeltoalueista, ja juurikin sieltä on nämä kuvat napsittu. These gorgeous lavender flowers are mainly grown fo ...

WHITE FLOWERS
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 ...
