New hair look, striped blazer and Helsinki's summer novelties

If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things in nature have a message you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.

Helsinki, 11 degrees

Can you believe we've reached 11 degrees already? Helsinki has had its first true spring weekend this weekend since the sun has been cheering us up the whole weekend through by its presence! Both on Saturday and Sunday we were woken up by birdsong, how wonderful is that? Inspired by the clear blue sky that I've missed so much and now have refound, I put together an electric blue outfit, have a look!

3rd anniversary: Långvik spa and conference hotel

Helsinki, 5 degrees

There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them.

What a relaxing weekend, just what I needed! For our 3rd anniversary, me and my boyfriend headed west, about half an hour from Helsinki - to Långvik Congress & Wellness Hotel! Have a look and see what our weekend was all about!

I chose the Långvik spa and conference hotel for our special weekend since it's situated in a tranquil seaside setting. One could feel its sense of style already in the lobby!

I chose a beautiful hotel room with a sea view for us, and it was no disappointment! Elegant and comfortable!

After we had chilled for a while in our beautiful and comfortable room, we headed to the spa section of the hotel. The jacuzzis were just what we needed to unwind! Ideal!


After relaxing at the spa and later in our room, we went out for dinner to Långvik's bistro restaurant! I put on one of my favorite pairs of shoes - my golden ones, since this was a truly golden weekend! We loved the modern and chic restaurant with its stunning fireplace in the middle of the dining room!

After a lovely glass of sparkling wine, we enjoyed a wonderful three-course-menu: I had mushroom soup, white fish and a selection of cheeses. Yummy!

Later on, we returned to our room and I gave my boyfriend one of his anniversary gifts - a drawing of us that I had made by hand. It was based on the first common photo of us!

The bed at Långvik was super comfortable! We loved it!

In the morning, we enjoyed a superb breakfast buffet! I wish every morning would start with a rich breakfast like this one!

To recap, we spent a perfect weekend of style, relaxation, wellness, good food and drink, comfort and love! Thank you Långvik! Golden memories!

How was your weekend? What do you think about spas, yay or nay?
