Oscarinas and whirling weather

Helsinki, -2 degrees

Today on my way home from work I waited in a still tram for about 10 minutes in front of the biggest department store of Helsinki because four trams were stuck in snow. I think this is the best description I can give you of today's whirling weather. Or maybe the picture here tells more than a thousand words could every say. You tell me.

At the office we're busy making this spring's brochures. I've been looking through some translations for our family brochure over Helsinki, as well as some new internet texts for our renewed website that was launched today! Have a look here! At the front page, I've written the texts over World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 and the Icepark! What do you think? Please give all possible feedback on the website since it's brand new! Maybe you'll learn something new about Helsinki!

Of course I've also been looking at some red carpet pictures from the Oscar's like I guess all women of this earth! Probably it comes as no surprise that my absolute favorite dress was of Elie Saab (that I've been pracing on my blog for a long time alreadt) on actress Berenice Bejo.



Here are some other favorites of mine:

Claire Danes


Octavia Spencer


Viola Davis


Gary Oldman's wife Alexandra Edenborough


Esperanza Spalding


Glenn Close


Jessica Chastain


Kristen Wiig


Maria Menounos


Nancy O'Dell

I loved the contrast between pastel color and strong colored dresses that hit the red carpet this year! Maybe the pastel ones were closer to my heart though, except Claire Danes who I thought was absolutely stunning! Who was your favorite?

    1. Thank you Marianne for checking it out! Any suggestions about how to make it even better? What kind of information on Helsinki would you like?
      Haha, yeah yesterday was challenging, but it wasn't actually that cold, it never is when it snows..the snow makes the temperature go close to zero degrees actually :) Sometimes a snow storm can be cozy, but I guess I think so because I'm a Nordic oddity, hehe :)
