Helsinki Outifts.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had fun celebrating the start of 2013. I spent the end of 2012 in Helsinki, Finland, my favourite city ever, with my mum! It's a magical place and this was my 4th time there, I hope to go back again sometime. Unfortunately it was raining this time and the only snow I saw was on the ground but we still had an awesome time. It amazed me that the local Finns can walk so easily on ice, even in heels, yes heels, without falling over. I opted for biker boots because I'm not Finnish and I'm like Bambi on ice! Finnish girls, tell me, how do you do it?!

I tried to travel light so my outfits included the same fur coat (which I definiately regretted once it started raining!) and boots with a change of jumper (it was pretty cold even though it was above freezing for most of the time, the other times I've been it's been at least -10!) and accessories.

New Years Eve

We went to a gig for New Years Eve and I wore my new sequin skirt which I've wanted for ages with a tee from the mens section of Primark. I wanted to look New Years Eve but also like I was going to a gig. I hate looking the same as everyone else in band tshirts and baggy jeans at gigs, I wish people would put some effort in, just because you like rock music doesn't mean you can't get dressed up!
