Two weeks ago I walked past Le Carillon and Le Petit Cambodge for the first time since the Paris attacks. I never really felt the urge to see the places where such tragic events took place, with my own eyes. Somehow I ignored that they put up colorful buntings shortly after the attacks. On the buntings of colorful fabrics people and children from the neighborhood wrote messages of peace and kindness. And look at it: doesn't it look SUPER powerful?!
Today I'm leaving my beloved French capital to explore the Finnish capital Helsinki for a week. Snow, Finnish design, saunas and Laskiaissunnuntai. Yes the latter is a fancy Finnish word for shrove buns, or cream puffs. Yummm! I missed the typical Swedisch version Semla when in Stockholm a few years ago, so I can't wait to indulge 😉
If you want to see what I'm up to in Helsinki, follow me on Instagram or Snapchat. And if you have any Helsinki tips, feel free to share them in the comments below 🙂

Missing the “semla” is not such a big loss as I see it… I personally don't like them. Too sweet. They are everywhere from just after Xmas until Easter…
Have a nice time in Helisinki.
Oh wow…this is very touching!
Just heard you on the Finnish radio! Found your blog that way! Have a nice time in Helsinki
