Hanging Out With the Parents (photo-heavy post)

Hey lovelies!

How was your weekend? ♥

Here in Tampere, it was pretty perfect. :) I was shopping with mom, eating great food with mom, dad and my fiance, enjoying some wine while watching TV... Basic stuff, but they're the little things that mean the world to me :) My parents came here on Friday afternoon, as I might've mentioned in previous post. On Friday, we went to Lielahti, which is a part of Tampere, and has this cool commercial district there - with shops of different kind. Mom and I had a mission to check out yarn shop and fabric store. (I found these amazing laces I'll be showing later, along with other buys ;))

We kicked off Saturday by taking the bus to the center of Tampere. Me and Mom headed to craft shops, while the men went to lunch with a common friend. We visited Helmimeri - an amazing bead shop, and other cool places. Mom needed to buy a new bag, so I helped her choose one - though not in a way I thought. She was going through bags, while I found a perfect little brown bag and fling it on my shoulder, showing it to Mom. She finally found a red bag, but when she realized it's too easy to rob, she decided to switch.

Guess what bag she bought?

Yes, the perfect one I had been eyeing :D Well, if she gets bored, I can adopt it. But to be true, I'm not needing any bag right now. But I'm always wanting a new one. Luckily, didn't find anything irresistable.

After some shopping, we headed to lunch as well. We decided to try this little coffee shop called Vohvelikahvila, which serves a proper variety of waffles - both salty and sweet - along with tasty drinks and smoothies.

We ordered Smoked Salmon waffles with lemon iced tea. ♥

Smoked Salmon Waffle ♥

And before you ask, yes, it was absolutely delicious! I can't wait to check out their sweet dishes!

After some more shopping, we went back home to change, before going to dinner with the men in a restaurant called Bella Roma, an Italian restaurant in the heart of Tampere. Bella Roma serves the best desserts I've tasted in Tampere this far, and the main courses are also mentionably delicious. Here's some photos from the evening:

And this is what me and Mom ordered, salmon, again :D

Italian ice cream, men's choice for dessert.

And what me and Mom had: Lemon meringue pie ♥

Isn't my family lovable? I love them so much.

Here's my first outfit from Saturday, other one, I'll be posting later on the coming week ;)

Outfit of the day

Jacket: Mango
T-shirt: GinaTricot
Scarf: second-hand
Jeans: Cubus
Boots: Kenkä Cosmos
Bag: Tunnelin Kenkä
Aviators: from grocery store (Citymarket)

Then a little apology about the coming week - I probably won't be posting that much outfit posts. Reason: I have my lovely exams. Total of 4 of them, and one next week. So, I need to focus a bit, but I promise, there's still something I'll be posting. Maybe some smaller ones, not sure yet, but you'll see.

Yes, I can't just leave my blog even if I have a busy week, I'm that much committed :D

Also, I'll be visiting my hair stylist on Wednesday, we'll see what happens then... (Well, I have a vision, but probably she has a better one :D) I'm having my hair dyed and cut - yes, the bangs will be back!

But next time, I'll be showing you the other outfit I wore on Saturday...

So...

Blog ya later!

xoxo
