Third day.

Our third day was filled with culture. I didn't buy anything (well... close to nothing) and we passed some churches and... total culture. We spent some time in front of the mandatory Dome Church where some Latin American performance-practice-event-thingy was taking place.
Then we walked in the old town and almost got into an observatory (note to self: visit that place in june!)
We also visited the flea market once more (I take back my statement of "not buying anything"). I got a red bag and a plastic letter "M". That was random.

Kolmas päev.
Kolmas päev oli täielik kultuuripäev. Ma ei ostnud midagi (põhimõtteliselt...) ja me möödusime mõnest kirikust ja... täiesti kultuur noh. Kohustusliku Toomkiriku juures veetsime isegi kauem aega, sest treppidel toimus mingi ladina ameerika tantsude esinemine-trenn-thingy.
Siis jalutasime vanalinnas ja kuskil kohas, kus oli observatoorium, mis oli kinni (note to self: juunis mine sinna kindlasti!)
Käisime ka kirbuturul ("ma ei ostnud midagi" võib nüüd heaga tagasi võtta). Sain endale oma elu esimese punase koti, mis hea tahtmise korral võib isegi Hermes olla. Päeva kõige randomimaks ostuks jäi muidugi plastmassist "M".

OP

We spent the second evening in Helsinki's best cafe. They only have like 4 tables so we were lucky enough to find a seat. They have the best view and it's it the cosiest place ever.
After hot chocolate and cinnamon rolls, we had to visit the Sibelius' monument, which was right next to the cafe, as well.

Teise õhtu veetsime Helsingi parimas kohvikus. Seal on ainult 4 lauda, niiet olime õnnelikud et juhuslikult üks laud vaba oli. See on lihtsalt kõige perfektsema vaatega ja kõige hubasem kohvik üldse. Enne lahkumist külastasime ka muidugi seal kõrval asuvat Sibeliuse momumenti.

The life of a Moomin

I'm baaack!

Since we taped the whole weekend, I'm not gonna write a long emotional post, because I promise you that when I finally get my new video editing program I will edit the videos together and you'll see both laughter and tears (and Yvan Rodic's look alike too!) live.
But shortly about the trip.
http://i44.tinypic.com/e6x890.jpg
We sailed to Helsinki on Friday and my menu that evening looked something like this:
Starter:
Chocolate cake with chocolate ice-cream, chocolate mousse and tirmisu, covered with chocolate candies
Pizza
Fries with meatballs
Tons of salmon
Some salad
And as you may guess, I didn't make it till main course and dessert...
http://i39.tinypic.com/ic64v8.jpg
After that, both me and Britt promised we'll never eat again. That promise lasted until we both arrived at our apartment and found out there was a HUGE bowl of candies in our room. And what's even worse, it refilled itself! Literally, you ate half of the fillings and few moments later there was twice as much as when we first saw the bowl. Magic.

But about the first day then.
In the morning we went to the flea market which usually was located at the Hietalahti square, but since the winter season was still on, it took place in some ice hall. I don't even know if it was a good or a bad thing. It was larger and we spent twice as much money as usually...but you got TONS of neat things... (I'll show you the purchases in another post!)
http://i42.tinypic.com/24pz6l2.jpg
After the huge flea market, we visited a smaller one. Boxes with old photographs were a hit, I spent so much time trying to peak into strangers' lives. We also went through the legendary bow-boxes and boxes filled with just random things.

The last stop was vintage boutique Nasta. We lef the store empty handed.http://i42.tinypic.com/258tm3n.jpghttp://i43.tinypic.com/vczyhi.jpg
After the rough work of shopping, we went to the port and just walked around in the old town.

I'm baaack! Kuna kogu nädalavahetust sai ka filmitud, ei hakka ma mingit väga emotsionaalset postitust tegema, sest ma luban teile, et kui ma ükskord aega saan, et see video kokku panna, näete te nii naeru kui ka pisaraid (ja Yvan Rodicu teisikut ka vb). Aga reisist lühidalt. Reede õhtul sõitsime Helsingisse ja minu menüü sellel õhtul nägi välja selline: Eelroog 1 Daimi kook shokolaadi jäätise, shokolaadikreemi ja tiramisuga, üle kallatud shokolaadikommidega 2 pizzalõiku Friikartulid ja lihapallid Meeletutest kogustes lõhet ja asju Natuke salatit Ning nagu arvata oligi, pearoani ega magustoiduni me ei jõudnudki. Peale seda lubasime Britiga mõlemad, et me ei lase enam kunagi üksteisel midagi süüa. See lubadus kehtis seni, kuni jõudsime oma armsasse korterisse, kus ootas meid ees isetäituv kommikauss. Päriselt, sa sõid pool kaussi tühjaks, ja müstilisel kombel oli kausis kaks korda rohkem komme! Aga esimeset päevast siis.
Hommikul läksime kirbuturule, mis muidu on asunud Hietalahti väljakul, aga talvehooajaks oli viidud jäähalli. Tänu sellele oli turg miljon korda suurem ja ma isegi ei ta kas see on hea või halb, sest lisaks sellele, et me arvatavasti pooli asju ära ei jõudnud vaadata, suutsime me ka kordades rohkem kulutada. (Soomest ostetud asjade kohta tuleb eraldi postitus, ma luban!) Peale suurt kirbuturgu, sõitsime siiki Hietalahtisse, sest olime sealt eelmine kord avastanud mingi maa-aluse turu, kus on alati väga palju põnevaid asju olnud. Seekordseks hitiks said vanade fotode kastid. Ma veetsin vist kuskil tund aega teiste inimeste vanu pilte vaadates. Loomulikult käisime läbi ka legendaarsed lipsu-kastid ja minu lemmikud imelike-asjade kastid. Edasi sõitsime Toomkiriku juurde, mille lähedal asus meie lemmik vintage pood Nasta. Seekord midagi ei ostnud endale ja lahkusime tühjade kätega.

Pink and blue

There is a birthday sale in my favourite textile store and when I have trouble not buying anything from them usually then when they have 50% off a slik cloth with lilac print I just can't say no. Which means I spent a huge amount of money I had planned on using in Finland where I'll be this weekend.
At least I have so many beautiful fabrics now... And this skirt I made today from one of the fabrics. Here's a sneak peak for you!
PS! You can now use the link sequinmagazine.tk instead of the blogspot address!

Abakhanis on sünnipäev ja kui mul niisamagi on probleem kangaid sealt mitte osta, siis kui ma saan osta sirelitega siidi poole hinnaga olen ma täiesti hooked. See tähendab, et suutsin kulutada ära suure summa oma Soome jaoks kogutud rahast. Celebration. See eest on mul nüüd palju ilusaid kangaid...
Täna kasutasin seelikuks ära ka ühe kangastest ja siin on speak peak!
PS! Nüüd võid blogspoti lingi asemel kasutada aadressi sequinmagazine.tk !

Glasses

You probably didin't know this, but I actually wear glasses from day-to-day. I only wear them to school, because even though I think they look very discreet and even pretty, eyeglasses are not really my thing.
I got prescription glasses when I was in 5th grade and today I own 3 pairs of them. The ones I wear most often are my purple Armani glasses.
I have tried contact lenses, but have sticked to wearing glasses because of my very sensitive eyes that won't even let me wear mascara or strong eyeshadows.

Nagu mõned teist teavad, kannan ma tegelikult igapäevaselt prille. Üritan neid kanda nii vähe kui võimalik, sest need on minu arust kõige ebamugavamad asjad mida ma oman. Mul on kolm paari prille ja need kõik on üsna sarnased ja tagasihoidlikud, sest ma tõesti kannan neid üldiselt ainult koolis. Üritasin kunagi ka läätsi kanda, aga mu tundlikud silmad, mis isegi ripsmetushi peale vett jooksma hakkavad, ei leppinud nendega kunagi ja selle tõttu jäigi mu pikimaks läätsekasutamise perioodiks kuskil nädal aega. Oh jah, kõik need korrad kui ma oma tuttavatest tuimalt mööda olen läinud või veel hullem, hoopis valele inimesele kaela olen lennanud, saab ka mu lühinägelikkuse süüks ajada.

Cafe nAnO

On Sunday me and my mom had breakfast at a cafe called nAnO. The hostess was Estonian model Beatrice, in whose apartment that cafe is located at. It is definitely worth a visit, even only for the interior, which is just amazing. By the time we had finished our crepes, mine with strawberry jam and hers with caviar, we had olny seen a small amount of the things there was to see.
http://i42.tinypic.com/sfgnc9.jpghttp://i44.tinypic.com/33vzv5w.jpghttp://i44.tinypic.com/358b1h1.jpghttp://i40.tinypic.com/2z6t8u9.jpghttp://i43.tinypic.com/2pq2uye.jpghttp://i41.tinypic.com/29w1h01.jpg
Laupäevahommikul käisime emaga hommikust söömas Beatrice'i kohvikus nAnO. Sinna tasus minna kasvõi ainult interjöri nautimiseks, sest kõik toad olid sisustatud kohutavalt põnevalt. Ajaks mil oma pannkoogid, minul maasikamoosiga ning emal kalamarajaga, lõpetanud olime, ei olnud me ära näinud pooltki, mis selle kohviku sisustuses vaadata oli.
