WEEKEND

Koko viikko on ollut aikamoista haipakkaa asunnon myynnin suhteen, joten muutama blogivapaakin tuli vahingossa pidettyä. Viikonlopun aikana kävi taas muutamia ihmisiä katsomassa kämppää, mutta muuten se meni suht rennoissa merkeissä. Oltiin kaveriporukalla Skifferissä syömässä, ja ihmettelen edelleen miten en ole aikaisemmin käynyt siellä! Mua ollaan monesti yritetty houkutella Skifferiin, mutta jostain syystä en ole jaksanut innostua. Se on kyllä tosi upea paikka, ja venematkakaan ei kestä juuri minuuttia pidempään. Lauttoja menee ilmeisesti kahdenkymmenen minuutin välein, joka on mielestäni ihan kohtuullinen aika odottaa. Skiffer on alun alkaen tullut tunnetuksi pizzoistaan, mutta onnekseni listalta löytyi myös muutama herkullinen salaatti. Ilta venähti siellä puoleenyöhön sakka, eikä aika tosiaan käynyt pitkäksi kun valkkarilasi kourassa sai ihailla auringonlaskua ja Helsingin upeita maisemia. Ennen syksyä täytyy kyllä ottaa ilo irti kaupungin edustavalla sijaitsevista kesäravintoloista. Ensi kerralla pitää ehdottomasti testata Boathouse! :)

This weekend was so cozy. On Friday evening we went to Restaurant Skiffer with a bunch of my friends and that’s definitely a place worth visiting in Helsinki. Skiffer is a restaurant on an little island called “liuskasaari” and they serve the most delicious pizzas in town. Unfortunately I’m not a pizza kind of a girl, so I sticked with the “Soignon” cherve salad and a glass of cold white wine – such a great combo for a cozy Friday night. We ended up staying there until midnight and gosh we had so much fun. If you ever visit Helsinki during the summer, you must go to Skiffer! I’ll definitely make a whole post about the “must go” places in town soon! 

I’m sorry for being a bit lazy with the blog this week, but I’ve been so busy with the whole apartment project. Next week I’m finally meeting Dora after her holiday, so there will be more outfit posts then! 

Tulevalla viikolla mulla on taas Dora käytössäni, joten asukuvia on siis enemmän luvassa! :)

    This kind of post is a great idea! Oh I miss Helsinki so much. I’ve to travel to your beautiful city as soon as I can.

    I guess there’s no need to apologize Alexa, because you always will have a life besides your blog. And some thing simply are priority. :) and I’m sure your readers will fully understand that during summer, a blogger won’t probably update their blog every day. Plus you have another project going on right now. Good luck and all the best!

    Back to the post, you look great! Have a nice sunday. x

    Moikka! Osaatko suositella jotakin hyvää ruokapaikkaa (mieluiten opiskelijaystävälliseen hintaan) Helsingissä? Ensi viikolle olisi tiedossa kesäreissu sinnepäin Suomea, mutta ei aavistustakaan hyvistä ruokapaikoista ja syöminenhän on tunnetusti aina reissun kohokohta :D
