WELTMEISTER. Wow, what a weekend! Epic indeed. First of all, greetings from Helsinki! I’m so happy to spend some time here in Finland. I arrived last Saturday and kicked off the World Cup finale weekend at a housewarming party with dear friends. Sunday was naturally all about the Germany vs. Argentina match. And what a game it was! I could barely watch the regular 90 minutes and thought I couldn’t get any more nervous, but clearly I was wrong. It wasn’t until the 113th minute and the liberating goal by Mario Götze that I could breathe again. Already then I knew it’s really gonna happen: Germany is Weltmeister! Needless to say that I kinda wished to join the thousands of fans in Berlin for the celebration.
CHUNKY HEELS. The other day I took my blue suede shoes out for a stroll. And when I say stroll I mean it, because they are one of the most comfortable pairs of heels I own. Sure, they are chunky and probably remind you of another (and perhaps fashion confused?) decade, but I don’t care – they are blue and I think they’re great. One most likely either loves or hates them. Which side are you on?
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.
HEY BIG SPENDER. Last Sunday Panu and I went on a little shopping spree at Westfield shopping center in London/White City. And boy was it busy. It’s crazy how many people and in particular families use Sundays to go shopping at a mall. I really hope it’s just the frantic pre-Christmas time. Anyhow, for my upcoming trip I was in desperate need for warm jumpers and a proper coat. Needless to say that it didn’t stop there and in my bag went also a pair of heels, sunglasses, a statement necklace, and one of my favourite perfumes, because I ran out a couple of days ago. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a coat – every year it’s such a hassle finding one – so I either go back to the stores and make up my mind or I will tragically freeze to death. Wish me luck!
