THE FUTURE. Greetings from Germany! I’m here to spend a peaceful Christmas with family and friends. Christmas markets, the obligatory Nutcracker ballet, and good food are awaiting. It’s going to be so much fun. And what’s best is that beloved Helsinki is the destination for New Year’s! I can’t wait to catch up with all my friends and most importantly enjoy the city to the fullest – and hopefully some snow, too. I couldn’t imagine a better start for 2014 right now.
THE CAPE. Gosh, it’s been cold in London lately. Nowadays our bathtub is my very best friend who I turn to when I get home whining, shivering, and with completely frozen feet. I seriously don’t know what I would do without it. I must admit that dressing up appropriately for cold weather isn’t my strongest suit, mainly because of my wardrobe’s massive lack of winter attire. Same goes for the shoes to be honest. I would be the first person you see out in the snow with open toe heels. Many times have I listened to speeches of concerned friends warning me to dress according to the season. They all failed miserably. But lo and behold, I have a positive message to all of them: I came across a gorgeous woolen cape by Ted Baker. Not only is it very chic with its embellishments on the collar, it’s also warm (but only when you wear it with a jacket underneath, otherwise it’s still cold as hell). It’s not exactly the perfect cape for the Finnish winter, but here in London it will have to do.
BACK IN LONDON. Sorry for my absence. It feels strange to neglect the blog for that long, but unfortunately I had no other choice. In China I couldn’t access WordPress or any social media for that matter. But now I’m back in London and ready to step up my game. China was wonderful and I can’t wait to show you some pictures and tell you all about my trip. But first I want to show you a look we shot before I left for Asia.
