I ♥ weekends.

Especially if I get to spend it with great company, awesome sushi, delicious wine, lovely sunshine, a good movie, candy and some more wine.

We “attempted” to watch Woody Allen’s “You will meet a tall dark stranger” but somehow we ended up talking a teensy bit too much and might have lost track of the plot a bit…but that made the whole thing even better! We decided that we’re gonna do more of those chilled out movie nights as we are all getting older and those nights are actually pretty relaxing and it feels great  and relieving that you (for once) don’t wake up with the usual major “Finnish hangover” the next day 😉

I had a birthday on Thursday. This usually happens to me once a year. But this year I could enjoy fame that lasted for full three days. There was a little surprise party for me at work on Wednesday already. A colleague tricked me into going into the office kitchen to get something but when I entered the kitchen I saw all of my colleagues standing there, smiling, yelling…”surpriiiiiiiiiiiiiiise!!!!!!!!” I was a bit confused. At first, I actually thought I missed my own birthday. They decided to celebrate my Highness a day early as a lot of colleagues would not be in the office on “the real day”. It was pretty cute actually. I got a nice card and we had some cookies and traditional finnish bakeries and pastries. Yum!

Thursday came. I did not feel like having a birthday at all. To be honest, I actually forgot it was my birthday but was reminded again by a colleague once I was back in the office. Priceless moment. It was quite a weird day though as I was so busy at work and did not really have time for any birthday thoughts…


I got a lot of fan mail that day…>>><<<…I sincerely love my friends…fans…I mean my fans!!! 😉

Friday came. Went out for some delicious sushi and wine with some friends. The place is the best in Helsinki and we were pretty lucky we got seats as they do not take reservations.

cheers to me and my awesome friends!! 😉

We spent quite an amount of money at the restaurant but awesome people need awesome food that costs an awesome amount of money 😉

I’m gonna spend the rest of my birthday weekend in bed. I am sick. I have tried to deny it during the last few days but I guess being a quarter of a century old now leaves its marks…slowly but surely 😉

Have a great weekend everybody!

I went to Habitare (furniture fair)last Friday. We went there with my strategies course(which i fucking hate by the way). The tickets were sponsored by Skanno and my university so I was fine with it as this meant no actual class but looking at some fancy furniture and listening to Skanno talking about their business strategies. And we looked quite important with our little name tags. Of course we checked out some furniture and I’m gonna show you the ugliest armchair I’ve ever seen:

ugliest armchair ever

it’s a prototype and gonna be like 5.000€

After the lecture(which was actually better than expected) we got invited to Skanno‘s V.I.P. room at the fair. V.I.P. room??!!? Yaahaa! It already looked fancy from the outside but from the inside it was even better. So we went in there and enjoyed some fancy fingerfood and one of the yummiest wines I’ve ever tasted! It was so good and there was even bling bling on some of the bottles! I immediately knew that this is where I belong! 😉

wineof course i took 2 glasses as I’ve heard that you’re supposed to drink 2 liters of liquid a day

musicianwe even had our own musician!

I had a hard time leaving that area but eventually I had to move on and checked out some other parts of the fair center(quite tipsy though lol).

ItallaIittala exhibition

I love Iittala and I’d love to have an entire collection one day!It looks so pretty and this is a proof that Finns actually do have pretty and innovative designs we Germans don’t have! 🙂
