DAY AT THE SPA




Dress - Dry Lake/ HERE and HERE      Sneakers - Alexander McQueen



Friday night and I'm here with my blog haha, but I'm so happy with my Nööp snoring into my ear, looking at his little dog dreams and waving paws. It's really nice to spend time with my dogs alone so much. I've been taking them on so many car rides and we've had so much fun together, but it's also been so much work again. I feel like my work pile goes up and down so much and I somehow take up my blog a lot more when I'm the busiest. Guess I'm in some zone then haha! I've been to Tallinn for a few times now to meet up with showrooms for the upcoming AW collections and seeing my friends, having lunch and pizza dates and my favourite rose wine. Oh it was so great to see everyone and also hop from showroom to showroom discovering cute stuff coming up but I also got reminded why Tallinn made me really anxious and how a month in Norway has turned me into this super calm peaceful person real quick. You know sometimes you fit well with a city and sometimes you don't and that's why I'm happy to just keep visiting but no longer live there. And Norway means amazing spa-hotels by the sea which hasn't been any harm hahah! So when we went to Stotvig again I had just received my gorgeous Dry Lake dress which is the best thing to wear right now, especially when it's late Summer. My followers must think I'm crazy to be wearing a fully floral maxi dress because of my minimal self but hey, it has slits which I LOVE and I tend to get a bit affected by the environment and these dresses are worn by so many girls here in Norway that I simply got inspired by the beauty of these dresses and now I live in this beauty! With white sneakers..that's a must for me! 

So what can I tell you about Fall news...ANIMAL PRINTS! Lots and lots of different styles in different prints but mainly the cheetah print and the snake. Also cowboy boots continue to be a thing together with bright red colour and the mustard tones we had last Winter as well. Oh and teddy jackets continue to be in (yassss) aaand plaid doesn't go anywhere. I think I should gather up a moodboard real soon to show the trends coming up, right? Yes. But what I'm on a hunt for this Fall-Winter are more classic. I definitely would need a pair of a bit more platform chunky ankle boots and a really well tailored wool coat in either beige, camel or nude colour. I'm always on a look-out for really perfect basics I guess as they lay the main platform for a good style! 

Planning to book a flight back home and was thinking of 22nd of August, because then I get to spend time with Norwegian summer a bit more and I will be coming back to Estonia for a week in the beginning of September anyway, so I would have plenty of time there then. J has been doing so well with his league and European games both and I sooo wish I could be on spot watching these games but hey, it's been so great at home too that I'm alright either way (no really I could use teleportation for sure). I have a beauty post planned for you next, but I'm gonna write another blog post for PSI as well and then off to bed, so enjoy your weekend everyone! x









RI PETITE




Dress & Shoes - River Island 



Hello again Estoniaaa! Good to be home although I already miss J and Norway too, but since my parents headed off to Italy and I could use some time to catch up with my work at home then I'm staying here for around 3 weeks working and looking after our dogs as well. The heat here is even more unbearable than in Norway and today when it rained for like 5 minutes I put my face up and just let it fully soak me hahah, me and my dogs were so happy about that rain! Anyway I hope my friends will be able to see me during these short weeks full of work so hit me up! I was already in Pärnu yesterday and will head to Tallinn and Tartu as well.

You all probably know by now I've been working with River Island in Estonia for quite a long time now, but I finally have these amazing news I hoped to be able to share since I started the collaboration..the PETITE collections are finally in Tallinn stores! Why is this so amazing news? Well I'm a very small build girl with 167 cm of height, skinny build and tiny bones so sometimes a size XS is not small enough for me when it comes to dresses. At River Island the dresses and playsuits were fine but there were always some parts like underarms or back that were hanging too much or too big for me so now I will definitely first rush over to the Petite collection at River Island and then check out other dresses and clothes and that's because I found this amazing button dress from there and it fits so perfectly! It's a full linen dress so it's perfect with this heat and it has this super elegant cut that makes it good for any occasion during summer. My favourite part just has to be the back and the way it hugs the waist so beautifully! The buttons have been in for a long time now so I'm amazed I only now managed to find a perfect one in this style so now I'm gonna wear it sooo much until the weather doesn't allow me! 

Today was all work day so tomorrow I'll allow myself some time at the beach and my favourite cafe in town and will probably work in the evening instead. Of course will spend most of my time cuddling with my pups because they are just the sweetest and cutest little cookies, especially when I'm the one getting all the attention from them haha! Heart is full! Good night! x 

PETROL




Blazer Dress - Hannalicious x NA-KD/ HERE        Boots - Sahara Ray x NA-KD/ HERE       Bag - Gucci 



Goood evening blog! I'm sipping another iced cappucino here as I've needed coffee pretty much all day today, just feeling so tired and having a big headache somewhere behind my eyes. Now I'm feeling a bit better with the day gone by, but at least I got a lot of work done instead of going out in the sun. I've been out in the sun literally everyday this summer and it feels weird to sit in this one day but hey, sometimes you gotta lock yourself in to get that work done right? Took J to the stadium 8am today as they flew off to Switzerland for another round of European Cup and I can't wait to see that game on Thursday! Wishing the guys all the best out there, but I will be missing the home game in August as I will be flying to Estonia on 29th of July and returning to Norway around 20th of August. Finally decided when I will be flying haha yay! Of course I'm sad to miss out on some games and so many days of Norwegian summer but I also can't wait to see everyone back at home. J is coming back on 27th so we were planning to maybe go to Göteborg in Sweden before I leave to check the city out finally. Hope we will have enough time, would be so fun! 

I'm seeing my favourite brands showing their pre-fall collections and their fall collections' photoshoots and it's that part of the summer where you realize that it's only a month left of that easier time and you just can't make yourself look at the thick jackets and coats and knits. But recently I got my hands on an AMAZING blazer dress which is from the Hannalicious collection at NA-KD and this is fortunately something I can wear through summer and also every other season, just styled differently! Okay this blazer has gotten soo many questions on my Instagram already so I decided to share a blog post with it to give you guys a direct link to the whole outfit. The colour is literal perfection, because you can't really tell what colour it is, green or blue and also it apparently changes colour in different light. NA-KD couldn't also name it any other than "petrol" coloured which is so dope I think. The belt can be fixed and removed so you can either wear it as I do or without the belt as a chunk oversized blazer. I also really really love the bell sleeves on it! I styled the dress with the patent lace boots from the Sahara Ray x NA-KD collection. I've been on a look-out for this kind of boots for 2 months probably and when I saw these with the side hoops and skinny cut I just had to have them immediately! It's just sad there's no chillier weather to actually wear these with haha, because anything but open-toe flats and flip flops is out if the question currently, but I can't wait to rock these cool things with so many outfits as it gets cloudy/rainy any time soon (although for Friday they promise 34 degrees in Sarpsborg so it doesn't look good on that side). But no I don't want this beautiful weather to go so the booties can wait! 

I'm gonna continue this evening behind my laptop, maybe re-watch some Gossip Girl episodes as I have YET AGAIN been captured into this bubble like I do over and over and do some cleaning and tomorrow I think I might take a little roadtrip on a more sandy beach somewhere on the coast. Have a fun week lovelies! x 

PIZZA DATE AT FREDRIKSTAD




Blouse - Dry Lake/ HERE         Shorts - Levi's         Bag - Gucci        Heels - oldies



Hey everyone! Hope summer has treated you all well! My heatwave is still so on-going here haha, I just realized I haven't seen a rainy day or less than 20 degree day since mid-May and that's just too crazy compared to the last summer's I've had where you could maybe count around 15 days of sun in total haha!? So what has been going on lately is that me and J have tried to make the most out of these amazing days here and roadtripped around the Ostfold area finding more and more cool places to explore, swim, fish and sunbathe at. J's team also got through to the next round of the European Cup which was so awesome to witness with the girls here, always so fun to watch football with them as they get super lively haha! I also meanwhile took on a social media marketing job next to my blog work and it's great eventhough blog work has been taking so much of my time, I just can't be not-busy even during summer. But Norway has been a great summer treat and I love that summer just keeps following me whereever I go these days, but now it's time to head home to Estonia for a few weeks in some days and I'm happy to go experience some Estonian summer as well eventhough there was already plenty of that in May, but of course always great to see my friends, dogs and famiy and catch up with some blog work that was left behind there! Im either gonna fly there 24th or 29th, haven't decided yet but should do it about NOW as it's already 21st hahah! But friends I hope to see all of you during these weeks at home!!!

Me and J just got back from the lakeside and I'm taking some time to work. The outfit with the Dry Lake blouse is from a pizza date at Fredrikstad two weeks ago. I really have grown to like the neighbouring city Fredrikstad as it has a super nice riverside area with so many different open-air restaurants plus has great shops, views and cute boats floating on river. We have been there every 3rd day lately as we've gotten too used to Sarpsborg now and want some difference. I love that top so much though! It's so beautiful and delicate and can be worn in so many ways. My favourite would be with ivory jeans or denim shorts as I wore it on the photos with some mid-heel shoes as it makes the blouse a bit more casual, but also stand out more! It's on sale right now so I would definitely hurry to get it off Dry Lake site!! 

I'm gonna do some of my marketing work, send some e-mails and then will get ready as we are gonna head to get some snacks at this cool ice cream-bar-looking-place we found today! It's such a basic photospot kind of place so yes I have to get ready for that hahah! Talk to you soon and don't forget to enjoy the rare beautiful days Nordic peeps! x 

ALL CUTE AND STRIPED




Everything from River Island store in Tallinn



I've come to learn that I seem to say that every dress I put on is my favourite for the summer haha, but I think it's all true as well as the dress trend is back strong and the styles this summer are really cute! I haven't been able to wear anything besides denim shorts or dresses due to the non-stop heatwave first in Estonia and then once I moved to Norway and it's so great! I've got a large bunch of dresses with me here and I just wish I could wear them all at once you know. So here's another one of those favourites - my striped River Island frill dress! I'm not a fan of green but with stripes I simply adore it, also not a fan of frills, but this cut I again adore. This type of dresses with large frills in the bottom and V cut are the biggest dress trend of all of them this summer and this River Island one made me want one in full beige as well. Of course this stunning dress would be of a better fit on an Italian coast haha (dreaming) but it works so well when out in town as well when paired with chunky white sneakers. Oh and the round bag from River Island is still my favourite thing to pair with cute summer dresses, nothing beats that one! 

Yesterday the game went soooo well as they won with a big score! Just love the vibes after a good game! Today I'm trying to figure out the dates when I will be going home for a few weeks, gonna do some necessity shopping and probably will have a little date night in Fredrikstad before J heads off to Iceland tomorrow for the European League game. Have a great new week people! x 

UPDATE ON NORWAY LIFE



At Stotvig Hotel 



Hi blogsters! Figured that before I get ready and go to today's home match I would fill in a little on my life here in Norway right now!

It's been A LOT of sunbathing going on here haha! The weather is at least 24 degrees everyday without a cloud in sight and very little air to breathe so we've been driving around to some sunbathing and swimming spots by the lakes and on some rocks and I've gone to the beach. We have taken a drive to Stotvig Hotel as well as the spa area there is super nice there. The hotel is by the sea and has a beach and a dock and everything. Mostly I've been spending my days creating blog and Instagram content that I needed to catch up with after all the moving that went on recently. I'm catching up pretty well so content is coming everyday here and on Instagram! The sunsets are so amazing here with this weather so most of my content seems to be taken in the golden light now haha! I'm still trying to fit into the routine here and will soon start to look for a part-time job here next to my blog job, but I'm happy that I've already met so many amazing people here whom I've been hanging out a lot in Sarpsborg and Fredrikstad as well. Norway is amazing though! So much to see here as the nature is so stunning even here in the South part and I feel like I don't have enough time to go see and do everything I want haha, but J has been so great by taking me to see sunsets in beautiful places by now so hopefully I will be able to see it all after all! I'm planning to visit Estonia in July sometime and I have to stay in Estonia for many reasons for about 3 weeks straight, so I can't say there's much of a Summer left to experience here in Norway too. But it's been such a peaceful summertime here, exactly what I needed after leaving Tallinn which didn't have a really have a great effect on me. 

Currently J is putting on the suit for the match which reminds me that I have about two hours to get ready, cook and hit the pre-game with girls aaaand finish some editing on recent outfit photos, so let's catch up real soon okay? Sending hugs! x 

HAPPY MIDSUMMER'S!




Wearing full River Island/ everything is from River Island store @ Viru Keskus



HELLO NORWAAAY! Sarpsborg, Norway is gonna be my home for (at least) the summer as I still don't know final results of my university applications. I really wish I would've applied to more Master's Programmes than just 3, but hey, no rush either as I want to see what J does after this season as well before I lock myself into uni studies once again, but definitely Master's is a must! I actually came to blog in the park next to my new home and it feels really great to finally have a change of environment after such a long time in Estonia. I just feel more in touch with Scandinavia and it feels amazing to be back! Sarpsborg is soooo cute! Especially when it's hot and sunny as it is now which is so ideal for Midsommar! Oh happy Midsummer Scandinavians and Estonians by the way! Hope the weather treats you well! x

I already feel so so bad about saying this AGAIN, but yes I've been absent from blogging again (thank god for quick instagram possbilities to keep in touch with followers) and that is because I was packing up for Norway and once I got here on Tuesday, I've been driving around with J store hopping from one place to another, even Oslo, as I have to turn this Bachelor's pad into a bit more feminine place if you know what I mean haha. That means I needed a bigger space for clothes and so much stuff into the kitchen and accessories etc etc, while keeping in mind that we might not stay long which makes that so much harder to do haha! But I think the necessities for me are all in place now and I can start enjoying Sarpsborg to the fullest! After blogging I'm gonna head to the stores to check out the brands I didn't have access to in Estonia and then we will see what we're gonna come up with on this beautiful day. Oh and here's a yesterday's outfit when we went for coffee with J. It's all from River Island and I can't express enough how cool this skORT is! Looks like a funky denim skirt in the front, but it's actually high-waisted shorts and the wash is so ideal for the white tee + whte sneakers look I love so much as an everyday outfit. And another new favourite is this bag that J calls the "disc golf bag" haha. It is sooo stylish and beautiful and I'm such a fan of strict shaped bags, especially round ones and the golden round handles are just perfection! This bag is the ultimate cute summer dress bag that goes with all those girly dresses in my closet. 

I have so much to say now that I've been so out of my blog haha, but I also really wanna get my feet going towards the city centre, so it's a bye now! Enjoy the holidays loves! x 

CROPPED TRENCH/ MOVED AWAY FROM TALLINN



Jacket & Sneakers - River Island       Pants - Lindex      Sunglasses - Mango       Bag - Gucci



I moved away from Tallinn!! Yep, now it's officialy done and it was super exhausting for a couple of days with all the packing and carrying and you know, moving stuff, so I was away from my dear blog, but now I'm in my hometown, waiting for J to come here for his little break from the season and then we will already head to Norway together! So many have asked if I feel sad about moving away from Tallinn which I've gotten used to and the answer is NO NO NOPE. I just don't feel the city at all, I had no amazing vibes there and I can just say that it wasn't MY city, although I of course have some amazing memories and people to take with me from there. When it comes to Estonia I just tend to like the smaller towns a bit more since they are less messy, more in order, with good peaceful vibes and well, friendlier relaxed people. But I will still be in Tallinn a lot as I have a lot of blog work there which I will be flying back for often from Norway and I'm gonna be in town for a couple of days for the weekend as well as tomorrow is the Moet Grand Party Day!! The bubbliest party of the year is back again and since I had an amazing time last year at the Hilton hotel I can't be more thrilled to attend again with the same girl gang and this time at the amazing Tchaikowski restaurant! Unfortunately I won't be able to attend the brunch due to some important errands, but I can't wait to celebrate Moet and champagne at night! 

The photos here are from Norway actually and I just didn't feel like posting jackets and longer pants with the immense heat we had for weeks here in Estonia, but now that it's back to cold (yay amazing...) it's the perfect time to show you that super dope jacket! Looks really simple, but sometimes simple things attract me the most and in this case I just love that it's a cropped trench coat! The cut is wide and boyfriend'ish and it's a super great jacket to throw on whatever on a bit more chilly summer night. I really don't leave anywhere without it lately with the cold evenings, because it just seems to match everything that I have haha. 

Now I'll just pack some last things today before sleep, since I will head to my girl Kätriin's place tomorrow for getting ready and staying over at hers for the weekend! So thrilled for this weekend guys and for picking up J on Monday!! Exciting things ahead! x

 

GRADUATION HAIRSTYLES WITH BALMAIN HAIR COUTURE CATWALK PONYTAIL


GRADUATION HAIR WITH BALMAIN HAIR COUTURE AND BALMAIN CATWALK PONYTAIL


Hey babes! Graduation ceremonies are behind the corner for basic schools, high schools and universities and I believe so many of you have planned to fix your own hair since you either didn't get to book the time to your favourite hairdresser or you don't feel like planning that much ahead or you just don't feel like going so I teamed up with Decoris Showroom salon and their huge selection of Balmain Hair Couture products to give you graduates (and everyone else too of course) a large tutorial on multiple easy-to-do hairstyles you can fix all by yourself at home and these only take a few minutes! All you need is a Balmain Hair Couture Catwalk Ponytail, which is an outstanding hair addition that can be used for countless cool up-to's! Sometimes you lack either lenght or volume or both for a cool hairstyle so this is a perfect problem solver in all cases and it looks gorgeous as hell as I just can't stop wearing it myself! 

Balmain Hair Couture Catwalk Ponytail is made of Memory Hair - of artificial hair - that looks like real hair and it's super easy to care for. The name Memory comes from the fact that if you curl or straighten the ponytail, it immediately saves the shape and loses it only when striaghtened/curled again. Be careful not to use too much heat as the hair can only be styled with 160 degrees temperature the most. So let's see what me and Decoris Showroom hairstylist Erica created together for graduation inspiration! 

_____________________________________________________________

Hei beibs! Lõpuaktused on ukse ees nii põhikoolidele, gümnaasiumitele kui ka ülikoolidele ja ma usun, et mitmed teist on plaaninud teha oma soengud selleks tähtsaks päevaks ise kas siis sellepärast, et ei saanud lemmikjuuksuri juurde aega või ei viitsi planeerida asju pikalt ette või siis lihtsalt ei tunne nagu tahaks juuksuris lasta end valmis sättida. Just sellepärast lõin käed Decoris Showroom salongiga ja nende suure Balmain Hair Couture toodete valikuga, et anda teile lõpetajatele (ja miks mitte ka kõigile teistele) mitmeid ise väga lihtsalt teostatavaid soenguideid, mida saab ise kodus teha ja mis võtavad vaid mõned minutid aega! Kõik, mis nendeks vaja on Balmain Hair Couture Catwalk Ponytail, mis on silmapaistev juustelisa, mida saab kasutada lugematute ägedate ülespandud soengute juures! Vahest pole endal materjali või siis teistpidi pikkust või mõlemat, et teha mõnd lahedat soengut ja see juustelisa on super lahendus sellele murele ja näeb väga kaunis välja. Ma ise ei suuda kuidagi selle kandmist enam lõpetada! 

Balmain Hair Couture Ponytail on tehtud Memory Hair'ist - kunstjuustest - kuid näeb välja nagu päris juuksed ja on ülilihtsalt hooldatav. Nimi Memory Hair tuleb sellest, et kui teha patsi lokid või sirgendada, siis püsib soeng seni kuni uuesti sirgendada või lokid teha. Kindlasti tuleb ettevaatlik olla, et ei kasuta liiga palju kuumust, kuna neid juukseid tohib vaid kuni 160 kraadise kuumaga töödelda. Aga vaatame siis mis mina ja Erica teile lõpusoengu inspiratsiooniks kokku panime! 





THE PRODUCTS USED 





Silk Perfume (for silkiness), Texturising Salt Spray (perfect for a curly style), Texturising Volume Spray (adds volume to roots) , Thermal Protection Spray (heat protection), Balmain Catwalk Ponytail





So here's what my hair looks untouched. It's long, it has a lot of volume, but not enough to create some really fancy hairstyles, so it definitely could use some extra boost. 

_______________________________________________________


Sellised on minu juuksed ilma nendega midagi tegemata. Nad on pikad ja neil on volüümi küll, kuid mõndade fancy soengute jaoks on seda kõike siiski vähe, seega üks lisa boost on kindlasti vajalik. 





THE LOW PONYTAIL


Here is a step-by-step guide on how the Balmain Catwalk Ponytail was attached to my hair as a low ponytail hairstyle. This is a super elegant look that goes well with very classy and elegant dress choice for graduation and gives you super long looking hair that is very sophisticated looking. The first photo shows my hair tied back in a low ponytail and pulled back very sleek. You can find the step-by-step guide on how you can prepare your hair into that sleek look and how to attach the ponytail yourself in my Youtube video tutorial below! 

__________________________________________________________

Siin on samm-sammult näidatud, kuidas Balmain Catwalk Ponytail mu juustele kinnitatakse, kuid siin puhul madalaks hobusesabaks. See on üks väga elegantne look, mis läheb hästi väga klassikaliste ja elegantsete lõpukleitide juurde ning jätab mulje väga pikkadest juustest, mis on väga peenelt sätitud. Esimesel pildil on mu enda juuksed madalas hobusesabas ning on tõmmatud peataha väga silutult. Minu Youtube Tutorial video postituse all näitab ette kõik nipid-trikid, kuidas saavutada see sile look enne hobusesaba kinnitamist! 





THE SIDE BUN 


So this look is a follow-up from the low ponytail look. Erica used her two hands to tangle up the low ponytail into a side bun and pinned it together with pins and done! Super easy, but the bun curling needs a bit of practice before the graduation day for sure. I love this look a lot since you can easily style some beautiful headpiece to it, with gemstones or something golden maybe. In some super fancy cases, why not even a tiny Royal Wedding style hat haha? This looks is also very elegant and sophisticated and is definitely for the really confident women or maybe those who have a really flashy dress and need the hair to be pulled up to show it! 

___________________________________________________

See soeng on hea järg madalast hobusesabast. Erica kasutas vaid kahte kätt, et siduda pikk hobusesaba külje-krunniks ning kinnitas krunni juustele klambritega ja valmis! Super lihtne, kuid see kuidas krunni valmis keerata tahab ehk pisut harjutamist enne lõpetamise hommikut. Mulle nii meeldib see look, kuna selle juurde saab sobitada igasugu peaehteid, kivikesi või midagi kuldset. Samuti miks mitte lisada sellise soengu juurde kuningliku pulma stiilis kübar haha? See näeb samuti väga elegantne ja peen välja ning on kindlasti mõeldud enesekindlatele ja ehk ka neile, kelle kleit on nii tähelepanu äratav, et soeng võiks olla pigem üles pandud, et seda näidata! 





THE HIGH PONYTAIL


Here's my personal favourite! It's the simplest actually of them all and is the one I feature in my Youtube tutorial below as well, so you can check out the whole step-by-step to this one from the video, but sadly it's only in Estonian as I am focusing on the Estonian graduates in this post, but I hope you would still check it out as the talking part is not the most important part but rather the way the ponytail is attached and looks like! This one is more of a edgy look already, still super sleek and elegant, but I guess you can recognize this look from the H&M x Balmain collab commercial where Kendall Jenner rocked the exact look? Yup, this Catwalk Ponytail actually comes from there so if you've ever wanted that ponytail then there you have it - Decoris Showroom has them in all colours for you! By the way mine is called Amsterdam! I think this ponytail fits to all styles and dresses and definitely is a super stylish stand out on graduation day. I actually wore this style without the extensions a few years back the Estonian Blogging Awards now that I think of it. You can check HERE what kind of dress I paired the hairstyle up with!

_______________________________________________________________

See siin on minu isiklik lemmik! See on neist tegelikult veel kõige lihtsam ja just seda stiili ma oma all olevas Youtube'i videos ka ette näitan, seega selle tegemist saab jälgist samm-sammult ja seda eesti keeles. See look on juba natukene julgem, mis on siiski väga sile ja elegantne, kuid ma arvan, et see tuleb pigem tuttav ette H&M x Balmain koostöö reklaamist, kus Kendall Jenner'il oli just selline pats? Jep, see Catwalk Ponytail tulebki just sealt ja kui sa oled tahtnud endale sellist soengut, siis palun väga - Decoris Showroom'is on nad olemas erinevates värvides ning varjundites! Minu tooni nimi on muide Amsterdam! Arvan aga, et see kõrge pats sobib kõikide stiilide ja kleitide juurde ideaalselt ning on stiilselt pilkupüüdev lõpuaktusel. Ma tegelikult kandsin sellist soengut mitu aastat tagasi Eesti blogiauhindate jagamisel, aga ilma pikendusteta. Vaata järgi SIIT, millise kleidi ma valisin selle soengu juurde! 





THE BRAIDED UP-TO


Braid lovers, here's something for you! This one took a little longer than others, but it's also super simple to do actually, eventhough it looks complicated as hell haha. The photos below should give a pretty good idea how it's done, but basically Erica split my high ponytail into two and braided both halves and pulled the braids out a bit into wider braids. Then she sprayed them with hairspray and curled them up around the top of the ponytail and pinned them together with pins and done! This one is again super elegant and bring out the facial features a lot. I think it looks so amazing from behind and could be fitted to more minimal dresses. 

________________________________________________

Punutiste fännid, siin on midagi teile! See võttis veidi kauem aega kui teised soengud siin, kuid on samuti väga lihtne kuigi tundub, et tegu on ülikeeruka soenguga haha. All olevad pildid annavad päris hea ülevaate, kuidas seda soengut teha samm-sammult, kuid põhimõtteliselt jagas Erica mu patsi kaheks ning punus mõlemad otsteni ning tõmbas punutised väljapoole laiemaks. Siis kinnitas ta need juukselakiga ja keris ümber patsikinnituse üksteise ümber ning kinnitas klambritega..ja valmis ta oligi! See on jällegi elegantne soeng, mis toob näojooned ilusti esile. Ma arvan, et see näeb kõige ägedam välja just tagant poolt ning sobiks hästi väga minimalistlikke kleitidega. 




THE ROLLS (haha we couldn't come up with a better name) 


This also looks super complicated to do but is again really easy to do yourself. So what Erica did here was that she removed the ponytail addition and combed my hair back. Then she left out the top chunk of my hair and pulled the ones left into a tight medium height ponytail with sleek sides. Then she split the top hair into three and rolled each of them seperately and added the ends of the splits into the ponytail. So it looked like the first photo below. Then she attached the Balmain Catwalk Ponytail and it was aaalll ready! You can find that look from my Instagram photos, it's just soo dope I had to take it out to the city haha! Even J who doesn't like these very extra hairstyles really loved it and I got a lot of compliments from girls. This is a super rock n roll look, so it's for those edgy super stylish girls for graduation. The dress to this should be either really alternative styled or super minimal and elegant to bring the hairstyle out the most. I had something similar to my high school graduation by the way! 

_______________________________________________________

See näeb samuti väga keeruline välja, kuid on jällegi ise väga lihtsalt teostatav. Mis Erica siin tegi oli, et ta kõigepealt eemaldas Catwalk Ponytai'i ning kammis mu juuksed kõik taha. Siis jättis ta pealmised juuksed eraldi ning ülejäänud kinnitas keskmiseks hobusesabaks, siludes küljed ja üsna kõvasti kinnitades. Siis jagas ta välja jäetud juuksed kolmeks ning keerutas neid pealaela rullideks (3 rulli) ning kinnitas rullide otsad patsi. Esimesel pildil näeb selle kõige tulemust. Seejärel kinnitas ta Balmain Catwalk Ponytail'i ja valmis ta oligi! Selle look'i leiate ka mu Instagram'ist kuna ma lihtsalt pidin selle soengu linna peale viima haha! Isegi J kellele ei meeldi sellised 'extra' või äärmuslikumad soengud arvas, et see on väga tuus soeng ja samuti tuli palju komplimente teistelt tüdrukutelt. See on natuke selline rokilik look, seega see on pigem neile julgetele ja väga stiilsetele tüdrukutele lõpusoenguks. Kleit peaks olema pigem alternatiivses stiilis või hoopis super minimalistlik, et soeng välja paistaks. Muide mul oli midagi taolist gümnaasiumi lõpetamisel! 





I really hope you guys found some great ideas from this post! I just love Balmain Hair Couture products as they are an amazing quality and the ponytail is something I can't live without anymore. Gonna wear it to every party where I want my hair tied up and it just should be in a woman's closet in my opinion. Check out Decoris Showroom website HERE for all the additional info about Balmain Hair Couture products, technical stuff and the details of the ponytail (plus care of course) and also pay a visit to the amazing hairstylist Erica who helped me create this post. You're amazing Erica, thank you!

THE BALMAIN HAIR COUTURE MEMORY HAIR PONYTAIL VIDEO TUTORIAL


GRADUATION 'DRESS' IDEA FROM KAUBAMAJA



Suit - By Malene Birger/ from Kaubamaja Naistemaailm


This one here is for all the university (but why not high school) graduates who are still on a look-out for the perfect graduation style to go for. The land of dresses is wide and difficult to navigate in and that's why me and Marii took over Kaubamaja's Instagram story to help you out a lil bit! We showed some of the best pieces to consider for university graduation, including the American style graduation where you have the cape thingy on too, and Kaubamaja had a lot of fun styles to try. Then we picked out our favourite piece to take some detailed photos off and here you have mine! Yes it's not a dress, not even close, and that's why I picked this By Malene Birger striped suit as the best choice for graduation this year. First of all, the suit is amazing! I love that the stripes are different on the blazer and pants and that it has strong lines in front. Also the blazer has a lot of fun little details which is always the case with By Malene Birger - minimalistic beautiful clothing with funky details and patterns! Other than the suit being gorgeous, I think wearing a suit to a graduation is a HUGE statement! It means that you are confident, fashionable, feel good in your own skin and you come off empowering by wearing a suit as a woman. Also the suit is soo much more comfortable and could be used to enhance your best features with the right accessories. True I have dressed it down a bit on the photos, because if I were to graduate in this particular suit, I would add super high open-toe sandal heels, large bling earrings and some beautiful rings and well, more make-up too of course! The best part is that this won't stay sitting in your closet but can be used as two seperate pieces in the future too. For all the powerful ladies out there, a suit is the way to say it and I strongly believe that dresses are super beautiful and feminine, but a suit can be too and the trend is just too big by now to ignore it on graduation days. 

Other than the large projects I've had during the last couple of days, I'm seeing a lot of football this week too as the national team's game was in Estonia on Wednesday (was so happy to breifly see J again!) and on Saturday me and girls planned to have a little roadtrip to Riga to see the other game against Latvia, as they won the game against Lithuania on Wednesday already. Today I'm gonna be busy filming a video for my Youtube channel I've never presented here and then I'm heading to my hometown with a lot of packed up stuff from the apartment. Moving out next week so soon it's bye Tallinn for me! I'll keep you updated soon! x 

___________________________________________________________________________


See postitus siin on kõigile ülikooli lõpetajatele (ja miks ka mitte gümnaasiumi lõpetajatele), kes siiani otsivad seda ideaalset look'i lõpetamise päevaks. Kleitide maailm on ülilai ja väga raske koht, kus navigeerida ja seepärast võtsime me Mariiga eile üle Kaubamaja instagram'i story, et natuke teid välja aidata! Näitasime seal mõndasid parimaid noppeid, mida ülikooli lõpetamiseks valida, seal hulgas Ameerika stiilis lõpetamiseks, kus on see keebi moodi asi ka seljas, ning Kaubamajal oli tõesti mitmeid ägedaid stiile, mida proovida! Valisime lõpuks oma lemmiku välja ning tegime detailsemad pildid sellega ja siin ongi minu valik! Jah, see pole kleit, isegi mitte sinna poole, kuid just sellepärast valisingi ma selle By Malene Birger'i komplekti parimaks valikuks selle aasta lõpetajatele. Esiteks, see komplekt on ülivinge! Väga lahe idee on see, et triibud on erinevad pükstel ja bleiseril ning ette on tehtud tugevad viigid. Samuti on bleiseril väga palju vahvaid pisikesi detaile juures, mis ongi nagu selline signatuur-võte By Malene Birgeri'l - minimalistlikud riided koos ägedate detailide ja mustritega! Peale selle, et see ülikond on väga ilus, on tegelikult ülikonna kandmine lõpetamisele TOHUTU statement! See näitab, et sa oled enesekindel, moodne, tunned end hästi omas nahas ja näid väga mõjuvõimsana, kui kannad naisena lõpetamisel ülikonda. Samuti on ülikond nii palu mugavam asi, mida kanda ja sellega saab esile tuua parimaid külgi kui kasutada õigeid aksessuaare. Tõsi on see, et ma olen seda pildistanud natuke agasihidlikus võmes, kuna kui ma selle ülikonnaga ise lõpetaks, siis lisaksin juurde kõrged lahtised sandaal-kontsad, suured bling kõrvarõngad ja mõned ilusad sõrmused, ning muidugi rohkem meiki! Parim osa on see, et see ei jää kappi istuma, vaid seda saab edasi kanda isegi kahe erineva osana edaspidi. Powerful ladies kuulake nüüd, ülikond on viis, kuidas seda väljendada ja kuigi ma arvan, et kleidid on tõesti väga ilusad ja naiselikud, siis ülikond on praeguseks juba liiga suur trend, et seda ignoreerida sel tähtsal päeval. 

Peale suurte projektide, mille kallal olen iga päev töödanud, on see nädal ka palju jalgpalli vaatamist, kuna koondisel oli mäng Eestis kolmapäeval (oli nii vahva näha korraks ka J'd!) ja laupäeval plaanime tüdrukutega teha väikese roadtrip'i Riiga, et näha mängu Läti vastu, kuna Leedut juba võideti kodus kolmapäeval. Täna aga filmin ma üles ühe video oma Youtube'i kanalile, mida ma pole siin kunagi avalikustanud ja siis sõidan juba kodulinna ära hunniku asjadega korterist. Kolin välja siit järgmine nädal, seega peagi saan öelda head aega Tallinnale! Hoian teid peagi kursis! x 

'THE' SUMMER DRESS




Everything from River Island store (Viru Keskus) 



Hey babes! Yesterday and today has been hectic in terms of work. My yesterday started off with my tire going flat in the middle of my drive to Tallinn so I had to postpone my meetings, but it all went well and they could accept me later as well. Then I went on to meet Marii for some aperols on the roof and then I had J's game to watch at home in the evening, but the load of work in-between these acticities has been hectic (the one behind my laptop of course). Today I got ready and went to Decoris Showroom in the morning to work on the large project me and Erica had planned with Balmain Hair. The topic is graduation hair and you can read all about the trends and tips and tricks for graduation on the coming Monday! Also I will include a video and photos as well, so make sure to check the large post out! Then I met up with Kristjaana for some photos and now I'm packing some stuff together at the apartment and also working late. Tomorrow I will meet up with Kristjaana for photos again and will do a meet up with 2 other friends later as I haven't seen so many of my girls for such a long time! In the evening I will drive to the national team's game in the other city and will see J briefly after the game, which I am really happy for! Gotta get what I can haha! 

So here's a River Island dress I've gotten so many cimpliments for lately and I get that, the colour and the style of it is simply amazing! First of all, let me tell y'll, it has POCKETS. I mean dresses with pockets are something I spiritually connect with if anything and this dress has them on a really cool spot so that if I keep my hands in the pockets, I can pull the dress apart a little and create a slit which makes the style even better in my eyes. The dress is a off-shoulder one so perfect for hot summer days and has this super trendy belt all clothes currently seem to have in stores. But the most important part is the colour as it has this brick-coloured shade that suits everyone and actually makes everyone look more tanned as well! Super happy for finding this one and my favourite way to style it is with white chunky sneakers to make the look more edgy. 

Now I'm gonna check the final of the TV show competition my friend takes part in and then continue sending some e-mails. Have a great Humpday tomorrow guys! x 


WRSTBHVR




Top - NA-KD        Jeans - WRSTBHVR/ HERE        Sneakers - Alexander McQueen



Ah what a weekend it has been again! Honestly I don't know what happened or what's going on with the weather, but it's amazing that Estonia has had a hot sunny May and it is said to continue into June! During previous summers we were lucky if we got 3 days of sun straight haha, but right now it feels like the summer is about to end, that it's august and it's been so much summer already. Due to this, you can find me in the middle of my hometown lake every weekend. We also got that donut thingy to carry behind the boat, so I can ride it and sunbathe on it now and it's been so cool! The water is 23 degrees now so I've done a lot of swimming by now too. Appreciate these possibilities here so much! But tomorrow a super busy week starts again. I have a lot of collabs to work on before I move and before J comes to Estonia before that. Oh he also will join the national team for one game in Estonia on Wednesday, so I might get a glimpe at him even before his break! But yea the week is gonna be full of so many meeting, photoshoots and even a video to be created, but I like to concentrate on only one thing and not two jobs at once like before. 

By the way I just love these jeans so much! I took them to Norway with me where the photos are from as well and I just love to wear them with very simple white T-shirts and crop tops and sneakers. They look like sweatpants with their strings and baggy cut and are super comfortable to wear just like sweatpants are! WRSTBHVR has added their logo all over the jeans, behind and also behind the buttons in front and it makes the jeans so much cooler even! I love creative, edgy clothing like this and I think WRSTBHVR is one of the best brands at creating eye-catching things! 

I just got back from the boat again and I have a quite dark tan now after this weekend so I'm ready for them photoshoots for sure! I'm gonna head back to Tallinn tonight probably as I have a quite early morning meeting with Iris Janvier tomorrow, so I better get to packing now! Have a great new week guys! x 

THE NORWAY DAY




Everything from River Island store at Viru Keskus



Hii y'all, I'm back from Norway! After I ended my job here in Tallinn, I took a trip to Norway to move my stuff and see J with my parents. The drive there was surprisingly quick, eventhough it was 6 hours from Stockholm to Sarpsborg. We had the best time during this week for sure!! I got to rest from my busy schedule and my parents were in Norway for the first time and they really really started to love to country. We were all super impressed with the National Day of Norway and the way Norwegians celebrate it. They do it in such a united and classy way and it was a super fun to take part of with them, so I'm happy we went there at thsi time! I also took part in the parade with J as the football team had to walk through town with the parade and everyone brought their families, so fun! Rest of the week we hiked, went fishing, did some shopping of course, drove around the coastline and watched footballl of cooourse. My dad was so into the football life in Sarpsborg haha, I'm so glad they had so many good experiences and they really like the place I'm moving to in June. It was so great to see J again over a month and now it's just less than 3 weeks left until he's here in Estonia for a small break. Can't wait!! Overall I was super happy to travel with my cool parents over such a long time and we had an amazing time with us all together (with all our doggies by the way haha)! 

So here's the outfit I wore on the National Day. You've probably seen it many times on my Instagram, especially the yellow blazer because I just can't stop wearing it haha! I found matching shorts to it lately from the River Island store and I just love to match the set with all kinds of different tops and shoes to dress it up or down. The colours is super flattering on everyone and the fabric is a bit glossy, so it's a perfect style idea for so many events. This time I paired the set with the newest shoe trend - slingback heels! I've been looking for shiny bronze heels with a sharp front (haha whatever it's called) and I was happy to find the stylish slingback version again from River Island. I think RI is definitely the place to go when looking for formal or graduation heels that are classy and fun at the same time! 

Currently my notebook is overly booked with blog work and meetings and meetings with friends and I love every bit of it. I can completely dedicate myself on my blog from now on and fix all the ties I've broken due to being too busy to meet friends. Sometimes we seem to forget that socializing and family time is the most precious time that fulfilles you so much more than spending your time over-working. Don't get me wrong, working is of course important but finding ways and time for your friends and family is crucial in staying happy and I believe healthy as well. I decided to take a few weeks off and only work on what makes me happy and benefits me at the same time - my blog - and my blog leaves me time to visit family and see friends a lot more before I move away. 

Talk soon cuties! x 

_______________________________________________________________


Heii! Olen jälle tagasi Norrast! Pärast seda kui lõpetasin ära oma töö Tallinnas reisisin nädalaks Norra, et viia ära õned oma asjad ja külastada J'd vanematega. Sõit sinna läks üllatavalt kiiresti kuigi võtab aega 6 tundi, et jõuda Stockholmist Sarpsborgi. Nädal oli super tore! Sain puhata oma senisest tihedast tööplaanist ja mu vanemad said esimest korda Norrat külastada ning neile tõesti hakkas väga väga see riik meeldima. Me olime eriti imestunud Norra rahvuspäeva üle ja kuidas nad seda tähistavad. Nad on kuidagi nii classy selle kõige juures ja nii ühtsed koos. Nii tore oli nendega seda päeva koos tähistada, seega hea meel et just sel ajal külastasime. Võtsime J jalkatiimiga osa ka paraadist, kuna jalkatiim oli samuti kohustatud läbi linna paraadis jalutama ning kõik pidid kaasa võtma ka pered, mis oli vahva! Ülejäänud nädala matkasime, käisime kalal, shoppasime ja sõitsime mere ääres ning muidugi vaatasime jalkat ka. Mu isale nii meeldis Sarpsborgi jalkamelu haha ja mul on väga hea meel, et nad said nii paljust osa ning meeldis see koht kuhu kolida plaanin. Hea oli näha J'd jälle üle kuu aja, kuid nüüd on vähem kui 3 nädalat ootamist, kui ta on juba Eestis väikseks puhkuseks. Ei jõua ära oodata!! Tore oli ägedate vanematega üle nii pika aja koos reisida (ja meie kõikide koertega koos ka muide haha)!

Aga siin on siis outfit, mida kandsin rahvuspäeval. Olete ilmselt seda komplekti näinud juba nii palju mu Instagramis, eriti just seda kollast blesierit, kuna ma ei saa selle kandmist kuidagi piiratud haha! Leidsin hiljuti sobivad lühikesed püksid selle juurde ka River Islandist ja nüüd on nii lihtne selle komplekti juurde sobitada igasugu erinevaid toppe ja jalanõusid, et seda pidulikumaks või igapäevasemaks muuta. See värv sobib kõigile kindlasti ja riie on natukene selline helkiv, seega on see ideaalne idee mitmeteks erinevateks üritusteks. Seekord panin komplekti kokku uusima kingatrendiga - slingback! Olen vaikselt otsinud endale säravaid pronksitooni ja terava ninaga kingi ja päris äge, et leidsin kohe moodsa slingback versiooni River Islandist! Tundub, et RI on hetkel number üks koht, kust leida imeilusaid, aga ka põnevaid kingi pidudeks ja lõpetamisteks! 

Hetkel on mu kalender täiesti täis bookitud blogitööd ja sõpradega kohtumisi ja mul on selle üle nii hea meel! Ma saan nüüd täielikult pühenduda blogile ja parandada selle, et pole mitmete sõpradega nii ammu saanud kohtuda ajapuuduse tõttu. Vahest unustame ära, et sõprade ja perega aja veetmine on see, mis enim rõõmsaks teeb mitte oma aja ületöötamisele kulutamine. Ärge saage valesti aru, muidugi peab tööd tegema, kuid tuleb leida seal vahel see aeg, et näha sõpru ja peret, sest usun, et see hoiab tuju üleval ja hoiab ehk isegi meid kõiki tervemana. Ma otsustasin, et ma ei otsi kohe endale midagi uut pärast viimase töö lõpetamist, vaid töötan ainult sellega, mis mind väga rõõmsaks teeb - blogimine - ja blogitöö jätab mulle lisa aega, et kohtuda ka teistega nii palju kui saan enne ära kolimist. 

Räägib peagi armsad! x 

HOW I SAVED MY BROKEN HAIR AND SOME STYLING TIPS

Hey alll! It's finally here!!! My enormous, glamorous, helpfulous, detaileous HAIR CARE POST! I have told this story and many of these tips in my blog in earlier days as well, but as I saw that people have Googled my name with the word "hair" I knew I had to make a new 2018 version of my hair care routine and help alll you struggling with your hair health and growth, especially the girls like me who can't ditch blonde even if it kills the hair everytime we colour it! So let's start from the beginning: In 2013, I was told by my favourite hairdresser that if I don't stop colouring my hair that much and won't do anything to heal my hair, I will eventually end up with a boy cut. She told me this with all seriousness while my hair had already fallen above my shoulders, broken and damaged to the fullest. I know I could never pull off a short haircut so what she said got me scared to the bone and once I moved to Sweden a month later, I immediately started an ambitious routine to bring my hair back to life and even a farther dream was to have them grow long again. But it happened, one year of this strict routine and I had thick, beautiful long blonde hair that to this day looks healthy, long and still blonde! Yup I never ditched the blonde colour for long, only for a few months when I already had long hair, but I still kept up colouring and heat styling. So so so many of you ask me how I fixed my hair and how I managed all this and now it is allll listed here in this large post, so if you feel like your hair needs extra life or even saving like mine then sit back with a coffee and a notebook and I will guide you through EVERYTHING I did for the following result: 

____________________________________________________________


Hei tibid, see on viimaks olemas!!! Mu tohutu, glamuurne, abivalmis ja detailne JUUKSEHOOLDUSPOSTITUS! Ma olen rääkinud seda juustelugu ja jaganud mitmeid nippe juba varem siin blogis, kuid kui ma nägin, et minu nime on Gooeldatud koos sõnaga "juuksed" mitmeid kordi, siis ma teadsin, et pean tegema uue 2018 aasta versiooni oma juuksehooldusrutiinist ning aitama neid, kel samuti hetkel probleeme juuste tervena hoidmise ja kasvatamisega. Eriti just neile on see abiks, kes ei suuda blondi värvi hüljata isegi kui see juukseid hirmsasti tapab iga värvimisega! Alustame siis algusest: 2013 aastal ütles mulle mu juuksur, et kui ma ei lõpeta oma juuste värvimist nii palju või ei alusta nende ravimist, siis varsti on mul poisipea. Ütles seda täiesti tõsiselt juba siis, kui mu juuksed olid murdunud õlgadeni, katkised ja kahjustunud täielikult. Ma tean, et mu nägu pole just tabavaim poisipeaga, seega hirmutas see ütlemine mind nii väga, et kui ma kuu aega hiljem Rootsi kolisin alustasin koheselt juuste ravirutiiniga, et need tagasi ellu äratada ja unistasin vaid sellest, et nad kunagi üldse pikaks kasvaksid. Aga see juhtus ikkagi, aasta hiljem pärast ranget rutiini järgimist olid mul paksud, ilusad pikad blondid juuksed, mis tänase päevani on terved, tugevad ja jätkuvalt blondid! Ma pole blondist kauaks kunagi loobunud, ainult mõned kuud olin pisut tumedamat tooni, kuid siis olid juba juuksed väga pikaks kasvanud, aga siiani ma näiteks kasutan kuumtöötlust ja värvin oma juukseid. Nii nii paljud teist on küsinud, kuidas ma seda saavutasin ja kuidas ma oma juuksed päästsin, seega nüüd on kõiiik see siin suures postituses kirjas, nii et kui tunned, et juuksed tahaks elu juurde või lausa päästmist nagu minu omad, siis istu mugavalt, haara kohvi ja notebook ning ma räägin KÕIK täpselt ära, kuidas ma sellise tulemuse sain: 

 

 

BEFORE/MIDDLE/AFTER - ONE YEAR (2013-2014)

 



I went a little darker towards the end of 2014, but by then I had already grown long thick hair compared to when I started in 2013 (the left photo). So what does my hair look like now?

____________________________________________________________


2014 lõpu poole läksin toonilt pisut tumedamaks, kuid siis olid juuksed juba kõvasti kasvanud võrreldes sellega, kust alustasin 2013 aastal. Millised on aga mu juuksed praeguseks? 

 

NOW




As you can see it's still long and thicker than ever, but I also haven't stopped colouring my hair light blonde too! I still keep all of the hair care tips in my routine, but now a little less once my hair is back to normal growth and health. But I really really hope you guys appreciate this post as I poured so many days into collecting all this and I also decided to add a little fun styling tip at the end of the post as well. So I really hope you guys enjoy this and get a lot of useful info, so here goes:  

______________________________________________________


Nagu näha on nad paksemad kui iial varem, kuid ma pole ka lõpetanud värvimist! Ma siiani jätkan oma rutiini, kuid palju hõredamalt, kuna mu juuksed on nüüd elujõulisemad ja kasvavad normaalselt.  Aga ma tõesti tõesti loodan, et teile on sellest postitusest palju kasu ja hindate seda, kuna ma panin selle alla mitu päeva kogudes oma ideid kokku ja lisaks otsustasin postituse lõppu teha väikese tutorial'i, kuidas ma oma juukseid igapäevaselt korda loon. Loodan, et teile meeldib see postitus ja saate vajalikku infot, nii et hakkame siis pihta: 

 
THE CARE LIST


Protein mask - I've tried a lot of home-made masks, but the avocado-egg-olive oil mask full of protein has proven to be the best nutrition for my hair that makes it sleek, healthy-looking and shiny as well. All you need is an avocado, egg and a spoon full of olive oil (I used to have 2 spoon-fulls when my hair was more used to oil). So what I do is mix half an avocado together with the yellow part of the egg and olive oil into a bowl, cover my hair with the 'paste' and keep the hair wrapped in a towel for 2 hours. The mask is quite a mess and takes shampooing to get out properly so I recommend doing it on the weekends when there's more time, but hey the result is amazing! I usually did the mask in every 3 weeks when I tried to get my hair healthy, but now every 2 months. 

__________________________________________________________


Proteiini mask - Ma olen proovinud paljusid kodukootud maske juustele, kuid avokaado-muna-oliiviõli proteiini mask on olnud seni kõige toitvam mu juustele tehes need siledaks, säravaks ja terve välimusega. Kõik mis selleks vaja on üks avokaado, muna ja lusikatäis oliiviõli (kunagi kasutasin 2 lusikatäit kui juuksed olid rohkem õliga harjunud). Nii siis miksin kaussi pool vaokaadot, munakollase ja oliiviõli ning kannan saadud 'pasta' juustele ning hoian neid rätikus soojas 2 tundi. See mask tekitab paraja segaduse vannitoas ja tahab shampoonitamist, et välja pesta seega soovitan selle jätta nädalavahetuseks kui on rohkem aega, kuid hei, tulemus on imeline! Ma tegin varem seda maski iga 3 nädala tagant, kuid nüüd iga 2 kuu tagant pigem. 

 

Styling – When I tried to get my hair healthy, I couldn’t still ditch the styling products with heat. So what I could do was take time to dry my hair, let it air dry as much as I could, washed hair earlier for this, but if I was in a hurry I used the cool air on my hairdryer and I still do. I’ve always disliked the very hot air coming from dryer anyway. For straightening my hair, I opted for the straightener that has some keratin ions in it. I use THIS Philips straightener that you can for example find from Kaubamaja Kodumaailm in Estonia. Of course straightener can never be damage free, so I tried to straighten my hair only on days where I had a photoshoot, event or just wanted to look a bit more put together for something. However, this straightener has been really good to my hair since I got it and it looks super pretty too which helped me pick it! Use low degrees if possible though. 

But nothing, NOTHING goes without heat protector guys! Really don’t touch your hair with any heat without the heat protector!! The heat protector that I currently use is the Cutrin Muoto Heat Protection that can be found HERE

_____________________________________________________


Kuumtöötlus - Kui ma üritasin oma juukseid terveks saada ei suutnud ma ikkagi loobuda sirgendajatest ja föönidest. Mis ma teha sain oli muidugi lasta juustel ise ära kuivada, aga kui selleks aega polnud, siis ma kasutasin jahedat õhku föönil ja siiani teen sama. Mulle pole kunagi föönist tulev kuum õhk nagunii meeldinud. Juuste sirgendamiseks valisin ma sirgendajat hoolega ning olen jäänud nüüd ioonidega keratiini sirgendaja juurde. Kasutan SEDA Philipsi sirgendajat, mille leiab näiteks Kaubamaja Kodumaailmast Eestis. Muidugi pole sirgendaja mitte kunagi kahju-vaba, seega proovin sirgendada juukseid ainult siis kui mul on mingi photoshoot, üritus või lihtsalt vaja hea älja näha sel päeval. Kuid see sirgendaja on olnud väga toe mu juuste vastu ja see näeb ka nii armas välja, mis aitas ka valikule kaasa! Kindlasti kasuta sirgendajal madalaid kraade. 

Kuid mitte miski, kohe MITTE MISKI kuum ei tohi juukseid puudutada enne kui kuumakaitse peal. Päris ausalt! Kuumakaitse, mida ma hetkel kasutan, on Cutrin Muoto Heat Protection, mille leiab SIIT.  


Washing – A tip I got from one of my favouirte hairdressers was to actually condition before shampooing and then condition again. I used to do that through out my hair fix period and believe that double conditioning also helped me a bit. It only takes extra 2-3 minutes and you can maybe use a hair mask instead of one conditioning part. Also the basics – don’t condition your scalp, don’t shampoo your ends. Make sure to finish washing your hair with some cold water to prevent it from getting greasy sooner, cold water closes hair pores the same way it does with face ones. 

____________________________________________________________


Juustepesu - Ühelt oma lemmikjuuksurilt sain ma kunagi sellise nipi, et tuleks kasutada palsamit enne shampooni ja siis uuesti palsamit. Seda tegn ma kogu oma hooldusrutiini vältel ja ma usun, et see aitas kindlasti kaasa pisut. Võtab ainult 2-3 lisaminutit ja muidugi võib ühe palsamikorra asemel kasutada näiteks juuksemaski. Muidugi ka baasasjad - ära kanna palsamit juurte lähedale ja ära shampoonita juukseotsi. Kindlasti lõpeta pesu külma veega, sest see hoiab ära nende kiiresti rasuseks muutumise ja sulgeb poorid täpselt nagu näoski. 


 

Products – I used hair mask once a week, any I had, no specific recommendations except for the Provost hair mask J’s mom got me from Paris, which is my favourite. Also used the usual like hairsprays, mousse, etc. I also used other hair oils besides Morocconoil occasionally and leave-in conditioners and hair creams…basically anything that gave extra moisture and vitamins to my hair.

___________________________________________________________


Tooted - Kasutasin iga nädal juuksemaski, ükskõik millist, ei ole kindlat soovitust sellesosas kui siis ehk Provost, mille tõi J ema mulle Pariisist ja see sai mu lemmikuks koheselt. Samuti kasutasin tavalisi asju nagu juuksevaht, lakk, jne. Veel kasutasin ka teisi õlisid peale Moroccanoili tihti ja muidugi ka pähejäetavaid palsameid ja kreeme...põhimõtteliselt kõike, mis andis lisaturgutust või vitamiine juustele juurde.
 

 

That one must-have productMoroccanOil hair oil, for blondes the light version. This is the globally known miracle product and it surely never gets old. When I moved to Sweden I wanted to know what makes the Swedish bloggers hair so thick and long and they were all recommending this product on blogs and magazines and I have never gone back. For me it usually lasts for 2 years as I put a small drop of it every time I wash my hair or if the ends feel a lil dry and it gives instant moisture and shine to hair, making ends look fixed. 

______________________________________________________________


See üks toode, mis peab olema - Moroccanoil'i juukseõli, blondidele light versioon. See on globaalselt tuntud imerohi, mis ei aegu vist kunagi. Kui ma kolisin Rootsi, siis ma proovisin leida neid tooteid, mis tegid Rootsi blogijate juuksed nii ilusaks paksuks ja pikaks ja kõik nad soovitasid seda ühte toodet nii ajakirjades kui blogides ning enam sealt ma tagasi ei vaatand. Tavaliselt kestab üks õlipudel mul 2 aastat, kuna ma panen väikese herne suuruse tilga juustesse peale igat pesu ja vahest ka otstesse kuivalt, kui juuksed tahavad lisaniisutust ja sära. Otsad näevad ka koheselt tervemad välja. 

 

Overnighters – Here we come to probably the most essential part that played role in my hair growth – the overnighters as in oils and masks I left over night in my hair. Once or twice a week, the morning before having to wash my hair, I left all kinds of different things in my hair for the night and slept on a soft towel or had a fabric shower cap on, or just a bun if it was less oily (yup sounds super hot I know, but my boyfriend understands that beauty often comes from pretty weird and nasty procedures hahah) So everything I left in hair overnight was: 

  • Larger amount of Moroccanoil or any other hair oil
  • Conditioner – again large amounts
  • Hair mask
  • Olive oil
  • Castor oil
  • Nut oil

Oils weren’t great at first as they needed double shampoo to wash off, but I believe these harder things were the ones to help me grow my hair the most too. Castor oil by the way helps you get beautiful lashes, brows and nails too! It’s an amazing product to have.

Öised ravid - Siinkohal räägin teile ilmselt kõige tähtsamast osast minu rutiini juures, mis ilmselt mängis suurimat rolli juuste tervenemisel ja kasvamisel - ööseks juustesse jäetavad õlid. Üks või kaks korda nädalas, päev enne seda kui kavatsesin juukseid pesta, jätsin ma igasugu erinevaid ööseks juustesse ja magasin patja katva pehme rätiku peal või duššimütsiga, või siis lihtsalt krunniga, kui toode polnud eriti määriv või õline (kõlab päriselt ilusti kindlasti, aga mu peika näiteks saab aru, et ilus välimus tuleb tihti koledate protseduuride tagajärjel hahah). Niisiis siin on list asjadest, mis ma ööseks juustesse jätsin:

  • Suurem kogus Moroccanoili või mõnd teist juukseõli
  • Palsam - jällegi suurem kogus
  • Juuksemask
  • Oliiviõli
  • Riitsinuse õli
  • Pähkliõli


Õlid polnud alguses väga toredad, kuna pidin shampoonitama kaks korda, et kõik juustest välja saada, aga ma usun, et just need raskeimad protseduurid olid need, mis aitasid mu juukseid enim. Muide riitsinuse õli on ka hea küünte ja ripsmete kasvuks, seega igati tore asi, mida omada. 

 

Hairdresser’s visits – I know it hurts when hair is already short, but cutting ends is the only way once they are frizzy and dry or even broken. The broken ends just weigh the hair down and keep drying upwards, so eventually you will end up having to cut even more off. Like my hairdresser said, there is nothing in this world, whatever they might tell you, that fixes already broken ends. No product, no treatment, you can only prevent it. Another things is coloring, do it as little as possible. For blondes the outgrowth seems really ugly at approximately 2cm but starts to look okay after it’s already grown out 3cm (depends on the hair below of course), but make sure to dye your hair blonder as little as possible and rather have stripes done than colour the whole head. Of course I also wanted to remain blonde, but when I opted for a natural, a bit darker blonde, I almost became Rapunzel haha! But stay away from supermarket package colours and don’t let your hairdresser’s dye your hair ends!!!

 _________________________________________________________


Juuksuri külastused - Ma tean, et on nii kahju, kui juuksed on juba lühikesed ja peab jälle otsi lõikama minema, kuid see on ainuke viis juukseid aidata kui otsad on säbrulised, kuivad või juba katki. Katkend otsad on lihtsalt lisaraskus juustele, mis kuivab aina ülespoole ja varsti tuleb seljuhul isegi rohkem maha lõigata kui ehk algul. Nagu mu juuksur ütles, siis pole mitte ühtegi toodet maailmas, misiganes nad ka ei räägiks, mis parandaks juba katkiseid juukseotsi. Muidugi saab seda alati ennetada, aga mingit ravi pole. Järgmine teema on kindlasti värvimine, mida tuleb teha nii vähe kui võimalik. Blondide puhul näeb väljakasv päris kole välja kuskil 2cm pealt, kuid hakkab väga okei välja nägema pärast seda (oleneb muidugi, mis värv alt kasvab), kuid kindlasti tuleks blondeerida võimalikult vähe ja kui siis lasta triibutada pigem kui terve pea värvida. Muidugi tahtsin ma hoida oma blondi välimust, kuid läksin mingiaeg natukene naturaalsemat, tumedama blondi teed pidi ja siis olin põhimõtteliselt juba juuksekasvult Rapuntsel haha! KIndlasti tuleb eemale hoida poes müüdavatest pakivärvidest ja kindlasti ei tohi lasta juuksuril värvida oma juukseotsi!!! 

 

Other tips –  

  • I never washed my hair when I didn’t have to or on free days, because the natural oils the hair produces are so good to have when possible and postponing washing days by wearing a ponytail or bun can eventually lead to less washing because  your hair isn’t so used to washing anymore. 
  • Force a spoon full of olive oil in your system everyday, because hair growth also starts from within. Also it’s good to down different vitamins and other oils that are good for the body.
  • Do a little research what kind of foods to eat that encourage hair growth and give vital ingredients for it.
  • Use a TangleTeezer or boar hair brush and definitely don't brush moist hair.


____________________________________________________________


Muud nipid - 

  • Ma ei pesnud kunagi juukseid sel päeval kui mul polnud vaja kuhugi minna või vabadel päevadel, kuna juuste naturaalsed õlid on juustele väga head ja juustepesu edasi lükkamine harjutab juukseid kauem puhtad püsima. Vahest aitan juuste krunnis või patsis kandmine, et ei paistaks juuksed mustad. 
  • Lusikatäis oliiviõli neelata iga hommik on samuti väga hea, kuna hea juustekasv algab seest. Samuti on hea tarbida erinevaid vitamiine ja teisi õlisid, mis kehale head teevad.
  • Tee natuke uurimustööd, mis toitu süüa, et saada aineid, mis juuksekasvuks vajalikud.
  • KAsuta Tangle Teezerit või metsseaharjastega harja ning ära kammi niiskeid juukseid.

 

Time – Fixing hair and waiting for them to grow takes patience and time. Don’t go for extensions because these are gonna break your hair all over again. You can do this! 

_______________________________________________

Aeg - Juuste parandamine ja kasvatamine võtab palju kannatust ja aega. Ära hakka pikendusi paigaldama, kuna need lõhuvad juuksed jälle ära. Saad hakkama küll!  


 

NEXT: SLEEK EVERYDAY LOOK WITH CUTRIN AND PHILIPS

 

Healthy hair means quite flat, good looking hair, but sometime's you just want that extra root boost that enhances your look a bit, but still isn't over done. So the look I like to go for the most daily is the super simple sleek hair with lifted roots and here’s how you do it, starting with simple flat hair:

_________________________________________________


Terved juuksed võivad olla üsna peadligi, ilusad juuksed, kuid vahest tahaks, et juured oleks kohevamad, mis annaks välimusele palju juurde, kuid sellised, mis poleks ka üle võlli. Siin on üks mu lemmik look, mis jätab siidiste juuste mulje ning on kergitatud juurega ning on alustatud lamedate peadligi juustega: 







On wet hair, I usually spray the Cutrin Root Lifting Spray Mousse, because it lifts my roots pretty well and helps with the bouncier hair look. I also like it because it’s a spray version of a mousse so you can target everything better. Find it HERE. All the Cutrin products and more are available at MG Beauty online shop!

_____________________________________________

Niisketesse juustesse pritsin ma tavaliselt Cutrin'i Root Lifting Spray Mousse'i, kuna see kergitab mu juuri päris hästi ja aitab kaasa kohevamale välimusele. Mulle meeldib just see mousse, kuna see on spreivariant ja nii saan ma hästi kontrollida, kuhu vahtu läheb. Leia see SIIT. Kõik Cutrin'i tooted ja rohkemgi on saadaval MG Beauty netipoes! 

 

 

 

Then I straighten my hair. I use my Philips ProCare Keratin Plus straightener for a great sleek look as it gives out some keratin for my hair and does an amazing job at straightening due to it! I like to very slightly curl the ends of the hair that frame my face on both sides and this straightener is super great at making those super flowy curves into the bangs and not leaving any sharp edges in. I think the curved ends are really beautiful and also help to keep hair off your beautiful face! Find the Philips straightener HERE or from Kaubamaja Kodumaailm (p.s. comes with a cute heat bag and heats up in 30 seconds). And then I brush the hair with a TangleTeezer.

_________________________________________________

Siis ma sirgendan oma juuksed kasutades Philips ProCare Keratin Plus sirgendajat, sest see sirgendaja annab kohese siidise välimuse ja annab juurde ka keratiini plaatide kaudu, mis aitab sirgendamisele veelgi kaasa! Mulle meeldib õrnalt koolutada oma juukseotsi, mis nägu raamivad ja see sirgendaja on selleks super hea, kuna jätab ilusad kurvid näo juurde ega jäta teravaid nurkasid sisse. Minu arust on natuke koolutatud otsad väga ilusad ja aitavad samuti hoida juuksed näost eemal, et näha oleks ikka seda ilusat nägu meil! Leia Philipsi sirgendaja SIIT või Kaubamaja Kodumaailmast (p.s. sirgendaja tuleb armsa kuumakindla kotiga ning soojeneb 30 sekundiga). Siis kammin juuksed TangleTeezeriga läbi. 

 

  

 

Then I tease the hair under the upper layer of my hair and do it all around my head. I use Tangle Teezer’s back combing comb for this. Find it from Kaubamaja Ilumaailm.

_________________________________________________


Siis ma tupeerin juuksed esimese kihi alt ja ümber terve pea. Kasutan selleks Tangle Teezer'i back combing kammi. Leias selle Kaubamaja Ilumaailmast

 

 

  

Then I spray the tangled parts and then comb through my hair very neatly and spray a little hairspray all over the straightened hair. I use the Cutrin Strong Volume hairspray to all my looks, because it’s a super great hairspray that actually holds hair in place and looks good on blondes too! Also I love that it has a volumizing effect that you need for the crown of your head! Find it HERE

_
__________________________________________________


Siis pihustan tupeeritud juurtele lakki ja kammin need õrnalt läbi ja samuti pihustan lakki veidi üle terve pea, et hoida nad sirged. Kasutan selleks Cutrin'i Strong Volume juukselakki, sest see on super hea juukselakk, mis hoiab juuksed ilusti paigal ja sobib ka blondidele juustele. Mulle meeldib, et see annab ka pisut volüümi, mida on kindlasti selle soengu puhul vaja! Leia see SIIT

 


 

 

 Then I usually spray Cutrin’s Humidity Shield spray all over my hair, because you never know when it’s gonna be rainy or moist outside that will frizzle the sleek look and this one is good for keeping the drizz away. Super helpful! Find it HERE.   

____________________________________________________________


Siis ma tavaliselt pihustan juustele Cutrin'i Humidity Shield spreid, kuna iial ei tea millal võib hakata vihma sadama või väljas niiske on, mis ajab sileda välimuse krussi. See toode on väga hea selle ära hoidmiseks ja super vajalik! Leia see SIIT 

 

  

 

Lastly, here’s a tip I learned from the Decoris Showroom hairstylist. When your hair growth remedies are successful, you will probably have tons of ‘baby hair’ frizzing on top of your head which is great but can be annoying if you want your hair to be very sleek. So the trick is to spray little hairspray on top of your roots, aiming from your forehead towards the end of the head, and then you use the hairspray bottle to gently rub the baby hair down and ready! If you pressed a little too hard and lost some bounce then just lift your roots with your hands and they will be back. 

______________________________________________________


Siin on üks nipp, mida tutvustas mulle Decoris Showroom'i juuksestilist. Kui su juuksehooldus abivahendid on edukad, siis on sul ilmselt hulganisti 'beebijuukseid', mis pealael turritavad, mis on küll tore, aga tüütu kui tahad, et juuksed jätaks sileda mulje. Trikk seisneb siis selles, et pihustad natuke juukselakki otsaeest suunaga kukla poole ning hõõrud sama juukselakki pudeliga õrnalt beebijuuksed alla ja valmis! Kui pressid natuke liiga kõvasti ja kaotad kohevust, siis saab juured kergelt kätega uuesti püsti upitada.

COPENHAGEN




Oversized blazer - Storets/ HERE        Jeans - Topshop         Crop top - H&M       Sneakers - Alexander McQueen         Bag - Gucci         Sunglasses - RayBan



MY CITY! Copenhagen is amazingly beautiful with every edge of it looking different and super pretty! Probably the most photogenic city I've been to ever as I would like to take photos on every corner I turn to. I really love the Amalieborg area since my favourite form of architecture involves art-like buildings that are beige and have those green iron details and rooftops, so obviously I couldn't refuse to snap my outfit there! The Estonian Embassy on the same street is a dream work spot for sure. I think my outfit fit the look of the city so well haha! Wearing my edgiest plaid blazer ever with huge shoulder pads and a large cut from Storets. Storets clothing is sooo fashion-forward and fun, I just spend an hour on their site usually, going through all the super funky clothes and that blazer is definitely nothing less and will be my cool go-to one this spring/summer! I am super happy to finally collaborate with them and show you the amazing pieces they have! Since the blazer is very extra then I paired it with simple white crop and jeans and white Mcqueens. 

By the way, is this some kind of a law of nature that when I am SUPER BUSY then the weather is the most amazing it's been for a year now probably haha! Of course I just can't work at home during the day with all that rare sun outside, so I try to fix my work in mornings and late evenings and spend the days in the middle of our fast boat on the lake. I'm already quite sunburnt but oh well, who knows how much we will get that anyway! Yesterday I had the most amazing experience when sunbathing on the boat!! So me and dad were just hanging there when we heard a loud noise and saw a freaking fighter jet coming towards the lake! I had no time to grab my phone to record this sadly, but the plane descended to about 20-30m above water and the pilot waved to us hahah! Once in a lifetime experience to wave to a fighter jet pilot for sure!!! So amazing! So I'm about to head back on the lake at noon and can't stay that long as I have to pack for Norway today and by that I mean pack most of my summer clothes as I will already move my stuff there. Me and my parents are gonna have a roadtrip there on Monday and we will be staying for a week at J's, excited for that and to see him!

But most importantly of all, HAPPY MOTHER's DAY to all the amazing mums out there!! My mom is the best! She helps me with everything, really gets into everything I do and wish for and is like one of my best friends who I always have fun and laughs with! Thank you for everything mom! x
