If you happen to be in Helsinki on a Saturday morning, book a table at  Fleuriste for Saturday brunch. Charming small place with delicious brunch, which includes juice, coffee/tea, yoghurt with berries & granola and a plate with slices of cheese, Spanish omelet, bresaola, grapes, plum jam and bread - also glutein-free! And a slice of cake or a muffin. The chocolate muffin is glutein-free, yummy! A piece of Paris in the middle of Helsinki ;)Nice atmosphere and the portions are just the right size.

// Jos satut olemaan Helsingissä jonain lauantaiaamuna, varaa pöytä Fleuristesta lauantai brunssille. Viehähtävä pikkupaikka tarjoilee herkullsen brunssin, joka sisältää menua, kahvi tai teetä, jogurttia marjoilla & müslillä sekä herkkulautasen jossa bresolaa, juustoja, luumuhilloa, espanjalaista munakasta sekä leipää - myös gluteenitonta saatavilla ja jälkkäriksi vielä pala kakkua tai ihana suklainen gluteeniton suklaamuffini! Pala Pariisia keskellä Helsinkiä ;) Mukava tunnelma ja annokset ovat juuri sopivan kokoisia.

Had a nice Saturday morning with friends at Fleuriste last week!

//Itselläni oli oikein mukava lauantaiaamupäivä ystävien kanssa Fleuristen brunssilla!

Morning Walk

Walking in the brisk morning weather. The sun rises already at 6.30am and sets at 6.30pm. Plenty of time to enjoy the light :) Even though there's no signs of green yet, the nature looks pretty amazing.

// Aamulenkillä raikkaassa kevätilmassa. Aurinko nousee aamulla jo klo 6.30 ja laskee vastaa 18.30. joten nyt alkaa jo olla aikaa nauttia valosta :) Vaikka vielä ei viherrä, näyttää luonto uskomattoman kauniilta. 

Oh, I was so wrong - there is a hint of green out there!

ps. Are you ready for the almost total eclipse of the sun? 

// Oho, olin väärässä - löytyyhän sitä ripaus vihreää jo!
ps. oletko valmis lähes täydelliseen auringonpimennykseen tänään klo 11-13.30?

I'm not sure if it's officially spring yet in Finland, but it's sunny & reatively warm outside and some branches have started getting green (inside at least). Tried to take some "artistic" photos with different apertures, shutter speeds, colour temperatures ... All it takes is simply practise, practise & practise on daily basis! So perhaps one day I might be able to take THAT picture, who knows...

"When will it be tomorrow" in Photos

There's an exhibition on works of photographer Sylvia Palchy at Mai Mano House in Budapest. You can also watch a short film/documentary  of her there, which is actually a very nice way to get to know her and her works a bit better.

Sylvia Palchy is a Hungarian/American photographer. She was born in Budapest. Her Hungarian Jewish mother was in hiding in fear of Nazi persecution during World 
War II. Her father was a Hungarian Roman Catholic of aristocratic descent and she was raised in his faith. 
Plachy's family moved to New York City due to the Hungarian revolution. 
Plachy's photos have appeared in several publications such as The New York Times, The Village Voice, The New Yorker, Granta, Artforum, Fortune and many more. Her photos have been exhibited in galleries and museums in Berlin, Budapest, Chicago, Minneapolis, New York, Paris ans Tokyo, and are in collection of the MoMA in New York City, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Houston Museum of Fine Arts and the San Francisco MoMA. 

Sylvia Plachy lives in New York City with her husband, and is the mother of Academy Award-winning actor Adrien Brody. 

ps. At Mai Mano House there're also a collection of picture of Adrien Brody taken by his mother.

IvanaHelsinki S/S 2015

The new collection S/S 2015 of IvanaHelsinki was introduced at the flagshp store in Helsinki last night. "Provinssi-87" is full of comfy dresses suitable for festivals - just like the name says let's go back to the summer of 1987 and Provinssi Rock... 

Here's just a few pics of the happening. Go & see the collection

It was lovely to hear Manna singing a couple of songs there. She has such an amazing voice!
