Madonna & Helsinki
La Bella Principessa a Milano presents:
Spending my vacation in Finland always means rushing from place to another and trying to meet all the best friends. I always have 3 cities to visit and way too little time. I spent my second long weekend in the capital.
The first evening I met my old friends from Turku in the city center. Our date of 3 turned out to be an evening with 8 which is usual when I go out with my best friend. This time we gave some Finnish guys rough time with their manners. Living in Italy has taught me some new expectations which I guess aren’t that common in Finland…
I was lucky to enjoy the beautiful weather for all 5 days and on Thursday I met friends in Kämp terrace. I was hoping to see a glimpse of Madonna and win the bet I had, but for my sadness she was nowhere near. Instead I met my best friends from Milan. It was funny to see each other in Finland, we obviously belong to bella Italia. I made some great shopping in Kenkäfriikki and found out that my newly bought 12 cm heels weren’t that comfortable when sightseeing the city. Outs!!! I survived from Louis Vuitton without any bags, but in my mind I already spent some thousands. It is gonna be a tough fall working if I want to acquire everything I saw or then I just need to find a new lover with the Amex Centurion…
One of the reasons I was in Helsinki was Madonna’s concert. I used to be a huge Madonna fan when I was younger and finally I got the chance to see her performing live.
There was a challenge though…I don’t like crowds and the idea of queuing already gave me nausea. Luckily I had my boys calming me down and they made sure I couldn’t escape while Paul Oakenfold was deejaying. I need to admit that I wasn’t that enthusiastic of the show, gotta be something to do with being in the sector C. Well, now I can at least say that I have seen Madonna with 85000 other Finns. ;o)
This was the required equipment for the concert.
My desire was to see the newly renovated Tiger so that is where we ended the evening. Somehow we had 2 tables booked with champagne and drinks and I have to admit that it was too much Moët & Chandon… even for me.
Saturday I spent enjoying the city and the sun shine.
The cutest toddler in the city.
