I ♥ Helsinki: Part Two

Monday: Aida and I went to Itäkeskus, which is a huge shopping center with all kinds of different clothing stores, including Seppälä, H&M, Zara, aleksi. I would say it’s a mall, but mall’s have such a negative conotation-at least for me- and it is definitely not anything like the malls in America. I didn’t buy anything on this trip, but definitely saw tons of really pretty things that I could have bought. Read the rest of this entry »


I ♥ Helsinki: Part One

Helsinki (cathedral)I spent last week in Helsinki doing all sorts of fun stuff with my cousin, Aida, who is ten years old and a lot of fun, especially because of what we have in common: fashion and style. She loves fashion and has a good eye for style. She is also very obsessed and in love with shoes!

Imported: Nordic Freeze

This post was imported from a blog that I did for a a couple months as a column-writing project for my Production Journalism class. On Nomadic Style I wrote about style and fashion inspiration that spanned various fashionable regions. The blog posts included wanderlust, which is another attribute of this blog; they also have some travel inspiration. As part of the project, I also had to reply to my classmates’ blog and a professional blogger of our choice, and I chose Garance Dore to respond to. I didn’t import the responses, but they can be found on that blog (the link is on my right sidebar). I don’t blog on there anymore because it was a project, but I chose to import the style posts onto this blog because I like them so much.
