Summer

by Sofia   -   in Shopping

So it´s officially summer. The time really flew by this time. I have kept a bit busy lately but as you may have noticed I have still been quite on top of my game on instagram. Not the blog as much as it seems to be playing second fiddle in my life lately. But I missed you guys I really did. So here I am! My birthday is coming up tomorrow and as I missed my big 40th party last year that was all planned but never executed I hosted a very intimate soiré for a few of my closest friends over the weekend with an Italian theme. That was a lot of fun. Just sitting around the table and chatting away. I had plenty of lemons and some other citrus as decorations and we first had an aperitivo hour ( or a few hours really) with antipasti and bubbles and some fun spritzers like a campari spritz and a limoncello spritz. The latter is now officially chosen as the drink of the summer. Think Aperol spritz but with limoncello. Then we ordered some pizza and for dessert we had affogato which is one of my favourite desserts. A scoop of vanilla ice-cream with an espresso poured on top. Or ice-cream drowned in coffee as the name says. Fun fun night and how odd to put on heels and a dress and to talk until the early hours with a few friends face to face.

On top of summers favourite drinks I would love to share a few other favourites that will for sure be this summers must have items on my packing list to everywhere. These might be my most boring choices yet but they are also fresh and clean and easy choices. Just add some funky jewellery or a great scarf or a coral or orange red lip for a bit of something extra. This dress on my swimsuit. A market basket I will carry around all summer. White Supergas every summer as well as a pair of fresh espadrilles. I usually save my new espadrilles for midsummer. I´m still going through a white phase in my life so most of the things I feel like having seem to be white. I just bought a new white shirt that is fantastic and Finnish so extra points for that.

This Nicci shirt from Andiata is a new favourite. A white shirt goes with everything from blue to white jeans but also with your summer skirts and loose pants. Anything.

I love a great market basket for the summer. This one coming to a new shop called Trésorie opening on Roba ( hopefully next week) has the prettiest shape and detail.

Swimsuit

by Sofia   -   in Random

Pahoittelut blogin hiljaiselosta! Jaoin instassa videon pakkailusta saareen ja siinä vilahti raidallinen uimapuku jonka perään todella moni kyseli. Joten ajattelin jakaa sen täällä kaikkien iloksi. Uikkari on täältä ja saman tyylinen kuin äityisvaate postauksessa jakamani uikkari johon itse ihastuin. Mutta se ei äityisversio siitä.

Näytti ainakin päällä tosi kivalta!

 

Ihanaa vappua ja yritän palata pian pidemmän tekstin kanssa. Nyt saareen!

Pour Filles

by Sofia   -   in Shopping

If you have a young lady in your life looking for her first real perfume then I think this might be it, without even having sniffed it. It just looks very feminine and sounds like a classic rose scent which I am a fan of. Instead of turning in to sweet candy scented perfumes named after pop stars. This is not in the same category as the Minoit my pre-teen spritzes over her hair but for young women.

I remember some of my first real perfumes my mom bought me. I think I was 13 and Thierry Mugler had come out with Angel not long before and my mom happened to be Christmas shopping in Paris with her friend when they had a whole big campaign for it. She picked up the whole lot for me for Christmas that year. A thick body cream in a large glass jar, the perfume in it´s blue star shaped bottle and even these lovely light blue flakes that were a bath product. They were all wrapped in pretty light blue silk paper and paper bags. It was a whole thing and I loved it. I have kept the bottle as a memento and I might even have the paperbag somewhere with my other treasured memories. Angel is perhaps not the most subtle scent on the market, it was the first ever gourmand perfume, but I used it even during the day. At the time I think it was not available in Finland at first so it was all the more special as I was the only one wearing it in my school. Now it is obviously available all over as it has been a “few” years since it´s launch… But that first perfume can be a thing to remember and this one from Aerin looks like a lovely choice. And something I honestly feel I might even want to wear. The only thing is that Aering does not ship internationally and I have not seen it on Net-a-Porter yet, although it was launched yesterday so I think I have to give it a minute, nor am I sure it will be sold in Helsinki at Stockmann that stocks some other perfumes of Aerin but little anything else. Let´s hope we can all travel soon to find these little treasures that catch our eye.

Have a lovely day,

p.s. I liked and used plenty of different scents as a young adult but one I used for years in my twenties was Romance by Ralph Lauren. It was my signature scent and I´m pretty sure I was not at all unique in that. Anyone else? It´s quite a basic fragrance but I´m sure I would still love it´s shower fresh scent. I think I might have to go sniff it somewhere. And I still like their often black and white advertisements.
