Bath Bombs Workshop at Rock+Paper+Scissors

Quick Trip to Helsinki

Last week I went to Helsinki, Finland, on business. It was a bit of a whistle stop trip but I did find time to take in a few of the sights and sounds of the city whilst there. Travelling in early December I have to say I was expecting to find it bitterly cold and
