Miss My's Saturday brunch at Deli Cafe Maya





Last Saturday I had brunch at Deli Café Maya in Punavuori. Brunch is very trendy right now and many places offer brunch on Saturday and/or Sunday. When I tried to find good brunch places I stumbled upon a really good blog called brunssipartio. Brunssipartio's writers offer a list of brunch places in Helsinki and they regularly visit and review brunch places. 

We had reserved a table making us one of the lucky few who got to enjoy the Saturday brunch as many people who showed up without a reservation were told the place was fully booked. And I understand why as the place is small and cosy and the offered brunch rich and filling.

I started off with the salads, omelette, ribs (delicious!) and home-made buns and croissants. There were several cured cold meat options, a selection of cheeses, fresh fruits and fruit juices.









My daughter was very keen on trying the yoghurt pots with home-made muesli or brownie and organic honey. I was very interested in the carrot cake and cheesecake. The carrot cake was heavenly. Soft, moist and sweet but not too sweet. Perfect really. So perfect that I had 4 pieces.















I would definitely recommend brunch at Deli Café Maya as the selection was great, the price (17€) very reasonable, the atmosphere cosy and the service very friendly. Try the ribs, croissants and carrot cake!

Miss My's Favourite Oscars 2014 Dresses

Yesterday the Oscars 2014 took place. Fashion wise this is one of the highlights of the year. Actresses have had their personal trainers on speed dial and I have a feeling there have been some unhappy spouses of dieting actresses. But extra exercise and dieting have paid off as I saw a lot of beautiful dresses worn by equally beautiful women. It's always hard to pick a favourite but this year my favourite dress and overall look was Cate Blanchett's. Here are my favourite dresses of the Academy Awards 2014.



Cate Blanchett in Armani Privé



Sandra Bullock in Alexander McQueen



Penelope Cruz in Giambattista Valli Couture



Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace



Jennifer Garner in Oscar de la Renta



Camila Alves in Gabriela Cadenas



Angelina Jolie in Elie Saab Haute Couture



Maria Menounos in Johanna Johnson



Elsa Pataky in Elie Saab


And this year Finnish women attended the Oscars due to the nomination for the short film 'Pitääkö mun kaikki hoitaa?' (Do I have to take care of everything?), yay! Director Selma Vilhunen, screenwriter Kirsikka Saari and actress Joanna Haartti were flying the blue and white flag for Finland and even wore dresses designed by Finns. Go Suomi!



Go Suomi!
