It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Helsinki, 3 degrees

One notices that Christmas is approaching when suddenly one has 40 numbers before one's turn at the main post office. Those of you who know me well, know that the main post office is like my second home since I visit it at least twice a week. This due to the fact that I made a promise to myself some years ago not to buy any new things, especially clothes, without selling off some old ones first or simultanously. I would say that it's working quite well since I've earned during the last 12 months about one thousand euros on selling mainly clothing online.

As you can read in my description on the blog, I'm an analyzer of life. This means that I actually enjoy going to the post office since it's such a meeting point for different kinds of people. People act funny when they are queuing. People act funnier when they are forced to stay in a closed space with other people. The funniest is to see and analyze people through the whole post office process: from taking the queuing number to waiting, maybe looking around in the post office since they sell all kinds of things besides mailing related items in Helsinki, to getting anxious and then finally giving up or waiting for one's turn until one finally gets one's errand over and done with. Have you noticed?

Besides being at the post office, I've spent my day off work decorating our apartment for Christmas. Have a look, enjoy! One of my readers wanted to see the newbought dress on me, here you go! It's actually not as green as I thought, but I like it nevertheless. And last but not least, I've added two pictures of Helsinki to our walls. I've had the photos made into posters myself since I thought they were so stunning!

  1. I think that promise makes an awful lot of sense, and definitely would keep your wardrobe from getting overrun with things you don't wear anymore! :)

  2. Love the photos, also is that the dress in the previous post, the one you were trying to find that looked like one in an editorial? If so, it looks amazing on! Such a great shimmer to it.
