AMSTERDAM GALLERY



Phone and camera snaps from Amsterdam.



Hellooo hope everyone had a great week!

I took so many snapshots with phone and camera in Amsterdam that I figured I should share a cute gallery of them on blog! So we spent the New Year's in Amsterdam and it was the first time in the city for both of us. J and I loved the city so so much eventhough the weather let us down big time. A city is pretty damn good if even pouring rain can't ruin the beauty and experience of it. Gladly it wasn't raining on New Year's Eve but I did miss skating because of it. And we also missed the canal cruise because they ended it way too soon on 31st hahah (sad about it actually). We just gotta go back because well point one, we always wanna go back there now, and point two, so much is undone and unseen still! Should probably pick a bit warmer and less crowded time of the year though. New Year's Eve in Amsterdam was a mess in a sense that I thought it would be. I've actually never seen such a huge city-wide party before, but I'm glad I did, because boy it was something hahah. Had to catch the 1pm flight next day and it didn't feel really good for me because...reasons. Thanks for being a treat Amsterdam!

Exploring new European cities is something that really makes me happy. I can walk 20 km a day easily just to grasp everything about them. Each city is so different and depicts so many different ways of life and I just like to blend in and be part of it for a few days. It's weird to feel like you're at home in some cities where you've never lived before and feel so distant in a city you are living in. Can you relate? I think it depends on personal style, personality and what we feel as important part of our environment and that's why it is good to see as much as we can when young to find the place we call our own, our home. It might only be me who feels that way, but I might have already found the city..can you guess what it is? x

Tere teree! Loodan, et kõigil on olnud tore nädal!

Ma tegin nii palju pilte telefoni ja kaameraga, et otsustasin panna ühe armsa galerii siia! Veetsime siis aastavahetuse Amsterdamis ja see oli meil ka kõige esimene kord selles linnas. Meile J'ga meeldis seal nii nii väga olgugi, et ilm vedas täiega alt. Üks linn peab ikka vägagi hea olema, et isegi paduvihm ei suuda selle ilu ja kogemust ära rikkuda. Õnneks aastavahetuse ajal ei sadanud tilkagi, kuid uisutamisest jäin ma küll ilma. Samuti ei saanud me minna kanali kruiisile, kuna 31.sel lõpetati sõidud liiga vara hahah. (tegelt päris kurb sellepärast) Peame lihtsalt uuesti minema, sest punkt üks, me tahame sinna nüüd kogu aeg minna, ja punkt kaks, nii palju jäi tegemata ja nägemata! Ilmselt peaks valima soojema ja vähem ülerahvastatud aja selleks. Aastavahetus Amsterdamis oli paras segadus nagu ma arvasingi. Tegelikult polegi ma nii suurt ülelinnalist pidu näinudki varem, kuid hea meel, et ära nägin sest see oli vast midagi hahah! Järgmine päev pidime jõudma kella 1sele lennule päeval, mis ei olnud väga mõnus..põhjustega. Aitäh Amsterdam, et olid äge!

UUte Euroopa linnade avastamine on üks asi, mis mulle nii väga meeldib. Võin vabalt käia 20 km maha lihtsalt, et kõike näha ja hoomata. Iga linn on nii erinev ja esindab nii paljusid erisuguseid elusid, et mulle meeldib sulanduda mõneks päevaks sinna sisse ja olla osa sellest. Veider, kuidas mõndades linnades on selline tunne nagu oleks oma kodus, kuigi pole seal elanudki, kuid samalajal tundub nii võõras linn, kus elanud pikemalt. On teil sama olnud? Arvan, et see kõik oleneb iga ühe stiilist, iseloomust ja mis neile keskkonna juures oluline on ja sellepärast ongi hea näha noorelt igasugu erinevaid kohti, et leida see lemmik lõpuks üles. Ma arvan, et ma olen juba enda lemmiklinna leidnud, kas oskate ära arvata mis see on? x

FAVOURITE MAKE-UP PRODUCTS

Time for a beauty post today! It's been a while since I've showed my make-up favourites here and as you know I'm always on a look-out for better fitting, better looking products for my daily make-up routine, because as a blogger I have to have good make-up products on for photos as I'm not a professional make-up artist. I'm not including the ones I have already talked about in my previous make-up posts (find them under BEAUTY category on blog!), but I'm here with some new fresh stuff! So let's get to it: 

(Postituse mahu tõttu on see ainult inglise keeles! Kui on lisaküsimusi, siis vastan kõigele väga hea meelega kommentaariumis! x) 


COMPLEXION



1. Chanel powder blush in tone 72, rose initial - The most sweetest looking blush out there! This tone gives a rosy look on cheeks and I like that Chanel blush allows you to build up the pink, not leaving it too Marie Antoinette immediately and it's a super long lasting one.

2. MAC highlighter in tone A96 -  I picked this one out because Polhem PR told me it was among the most bought make-up products from MAC in Estonia. I always had a yellow undertone highlighter, but this one is a bit rose-goldish and it looks stunning! I completely get whi it's a best seller - it looks luxurious and the shimmer is amazing!

3. MAC Studio Fix foundation in tone NC20 - Recently there was a MAC cosmetics campaign where bloggers were granted a make-up session and in the end everyone received the Studio Fix foundation that suited their skin tone. As I had just ran out of my YSL foundation, the timing was perfect to try something new. It was a little thicker than YSL, but the coverage is amazing and I really like how it looks better in a little darker tone on my face so I can bring the tone down with concealer. Blends very well and besides being thicker, it's equal with YSL in keeping my face clear. 

4. VANI-T mineral liquid radiance - A while back I introduced you to VANI-T self-tanning products, but besides these amazing tanning products, VANI-T also has a little make-up line. This highlighter is perfect for the night out or for bigger events. It's a super strong highlighter that goes well with fresh tan so I apply it under my foundation for some beautiful under make-up glow. The highlighter is sold out right now, but so many amazing make-up products are coming soon that give such a nice additional tan! Keep an eye on www.arabellah.eu

5. Giordani Gold radiant complexion cream stick - this pink complexion stick has become my helper-elf if I want to go for a fresh rosy natural look. Not too strong, but so good and creamy to use on cheeks and eyes.



UNDER MAKE-UP



1. Smashbox Photo Finish foundation primer - Every make-up junkie knows this one. No primer is more iconic than Smashbox one and it was the best news when Smashbox finally came to Estonia! The primer leaves skin velvety soft and keeps foundation in tact the whole day. 

2. Madara Pihlaja glow booster - This is my secret weapon on those days when the face looks a bit down and pale. Immediately boosts and freshens up the face, leaving a super pretty glow under foundation!

3. MAC strobe cream - I have a few of these little testers that I carry with me when I travel or can't bring a lot of make-up with me. For me it works as a primer, because it makes it so easy to apply make-up on and leaves skin so soft and sweet. 



EYES & LIPS



1. NYX Lingerie matte lipstick - I can't tell you the tone right now as I think I left it in a hand bag in Tallinn where I'm currently nooot, but if you are interested leave me a comment and I will let you know by then. It's that matte-Kylie-Jenner-lipstick kind of lipstick and works as Kylie's, but from Kylie's line I couldn't find a tone that purely pink, so this NYX one is perfect and probably my most used lisptick now. I tone it down with a lip liner though. 

2. MAC lipstick in tone Satin faux - Your basic pinkish nude, but in a little darker version for winter. A good MAC lipstick for blondes.

3. NYX soft matte cream lipstick in tone Tokyo - Very extreme pink that only works when I am really tanned, but it's effective and cute, so when toned down with lip liner a bit, it's another perfect pink. 

4. NYX white eyeliner - NYX ALERT hahah! I've tried out a lot of NYX stuff when the store opened and have grown to love some products, but I think I bought most of them in Paris to be honest when I was missing some pink lipstick in my life. This one is a basic white eyeliner than can be from any brand, but NYX does it well for me. It makes eyes so much bigger, so if you want doll eyes then this is the way to do it! 

5. Toofaced better than sex mascara - Also a make-up junkie's basic. This is pure doll-eye material here. Only Lancome is equal, no other mascara is good enough after these two. Nothing more to say. 

6. NYX vivid brights liquid liner in tone VBL08 - This is such a cool girl eyeliner. Works on days when I go for a nude lip and all black/all white outfit for example. I always pair it with the Make Up Store orange-y eyeshadow.


THIS ONE PRODUCT



1. Supermood Egoboost perfect moment beauty mist - Imagine a cool spray that you apply to your face after washing your face in the morning or after doing all your masks and peeling procedures or when you need a cool fresh moisturizing mist on a hot day...yup, that's the one! This thing requires a seperate section because it's my favourite thing in the world right now! I use it everyday under my make-up because it makes me feel fresh in the morning in a second, I can feel the moisturizer work it's magic immediately and it closes the pores and tightens the face. Not even a strong espresso shot can make me look so awake and fresh in the morning!


MORE EYES & LIPS

1


1. Anastasia Dipbrow pomade in tone Ebony - Very basic with my make-up junkie favourites here, but this product is genuinely the best brow cream I've tried and this greyish brown tone is perfect with my cool toned blonde hair. Requires a good brow brush, but nothing stays on better than Anastasia brow stuff! 

2. MAC lipstick in tone Velvet Teddy - Another simple good MAC lipstick. This one is a little lighter than the one above and goes very well with the following lip pencil.

3. MAC lip pencil in tone Whirl - Another product from the best seller MAC products in Estonia. Again I can tell why - easy to draw your lips bigger with, goes well with most lipsticks, good for contouring lip and stays on forever. 

4. Anastasia tinted brow gel in tone Brunette - I want this gel in a bit greyish tone now, but this one also proves why Anastasia's brow products are golden. Best one to use when you don't feel like colouring your brows with pencil or cream and just want a brushed tinted look on them with your natural shape. 

5. YSL lipstick in tone 01 - The prettiest red lipstick I've ever tried! Super creamy and fits blondes amazingly! Holiday season perfection! 

__________________________________________________________________________________

Hope you found some good make-up tips and somethign new to try out! I'm gonna be making one soon when Spring comes and face requires something new and fresh and summer-y! x

I'M WEARING RI IN AMSTERDAM




Coat & Boots - River Island/ HERE      Jeans - Levi's       Belt - Gucci       Knit - NA-KD



 Amsterdaaaam! OH it felt so great to finally visit that city that I've heard so much of but nevr visited before. Same case with J so we made this as a last minute plan to just go and see it and we were so surprised by it. I will let you know my impressions in another blog post as I wanna focus this one on my new fav outfit I wore to Amsterdam. Took photos in so many places because Amsterdam is too gorgeous. My blogger mind went crazy when I saw all these photogenic places every step of the way haha. 

First of all, WHY THE HELL haven't I worn these boots before!?!? Not only are these gorgeous with their pointy tops and the way the fit Levi's jeans, but how comfy are these??? I've been dying to find boots like this and I'm so happy I stumbled across these ones in the River Island store because I don't know if I'll wear anything else now until summer gets here haha. I saw these around Instagram on other bloggers too, but I didn't find any in stores before and I wasn't sure about the heel. I just can't believe I used to be afraid to wear mid and low heel shoes, because my mind has changed so much about these. To be honest, the heel height on these boots is so perfect that it is comfy and supporting but looks visually good too! Spent the whole day in Amsterdam with these and it was less painful on legs at night than with flats. I also stumbled across this camel coat in RI stores and since I've been wanting a coat like this forever now then it was natural to get it with me. These coats are so good to take on trips because they are warm or light depending on what you wear under and they go with absolutely everything. This RI one is so well tailored and the tone is perfect, so I will be wearing it a lot all Winter and Spring. 

J went off to Abu Dhabi with the national team to play against Sweden so I decided to go home to my parents for the weekend. Such a good way to charge batteries after these exhausting holidays and get some serious work done behind my laptop. It took me an hour today to decide on the calendar-notepad I wanna buy because I have way too many things I need in one notebook at once lol. I don't even want to tell you have much I am behind with work, blog stuff and life matters, so I will better get to it and do some Amsterdam story telling on another day. Have a great weekend guys! x

_____________________________________________________________________


Amsetrdaaaam!! Oh kui tore oli lõpuks seal linnas ära käia millest olen nii palju kuulnud, aga mitte kunagi külastanud. Sama ka J'ga niiet otsustasime viimasel hetkel ikkagi lihtsalt minna ja see ära näha ning olime ikka meeldivalt üllatunud. Annan muljed edasi teises postituses, kuna siin keskendun outfit'ile, mis on mu lemmik Amsterdamist. Pilte tegin nii paljudes eri paigus, kuna Amesterdam on lausa liiga ilus. Mu blogija silmad läksid hulluks kui nägid kõiki neid fotogeenilisi kohti igal sammul haha. 

Kõigepealt, MIKS KÜLL pole ma neid saapaid juba varem kandnud?!!? Mitte ainult pole need üliilusad jalas oma teravate ninade ja kuidas nad sobivad Levi's teksadega, kuid kui mugavad veel?? Ma olen nii otsinud selliseid saapaid ja mul on ülimalt hea meel, et just RI poest need leidsin lõpuks, sest ma ei tea kas ma enam ülse midagi muud tahan jalga panna suveni välja haha. Nägin neid Instagram'is päris plajude lblogijatel jalas, kuid ei leidnud neid poodidest ega polnud ka selle kontsa osas kindel. Uskumatu, et ma siiani põlgasin mid ja madalat kontsa, sest mu mõte on täiesti muutunud nüüd nende osas. KUi aus olla, siis nende konkreetsete saabaste kontsakõrgus on täpselt ideaalne sobivus mugavuse ja toetuse ning visuaalselt ilusa vahel! Veetsin terve päeva Amsterdamis nendega ja jalad valutasid isegi vähem õhtuks kui madalatega. Samuti komistasin RI poes otsa sellele kaamlitooni mantlile ja kuna ma olen sellist mantlit juba ammu kappi otsinud, siis oli loomulik sellega ka minema jalutada. Need mantlid on nii head reisidele kaasa võtta, kuna need on soojad või õhukesed vastavalt mis all kanda ja sobivad absoluutselt kõigega. See RI mantel on väga ilusa viisaka lõikega ning toon on täpselt ideaalne, mis tähendab, et seda kannan ma terve talv ja kevadel ka. 

J läks koondisega Abu Dhabi'sse, et mängida Rootsi vastu, seega ma otsustasin tulla koju vanemate juurde nädalavahetuseks. Nii hea viis akud täis laadida pärast väsitavaid pühasid ja saada tõsiselt igasugu ülesandeid tehtud läpaka taga. Mul võttis täna tund aega, et leida ideaalne märkmik linnast, sest mul on liiga palju asju, mis peavad korraga olemas olema ühes märkmikus lol. Ma ei taha isegi rääkida teile, kui palju ma olen maha jäänud tööl, blogiga ja elulistes asjades nii et ma parem jätkan nendega ja jätan selle Amsterdami jutustamise teiseks päevaks. Vahvat nädalavahetust! x 

2017 OF MINE

I'm writing this post ahead on the train, because I feel like posting it on the first day of 2018, but I'll probably be too tired to write it after New Years Eve in Amsterdam and eary flight back home on 1st. So here's me reflecting back on 2017 and handing out my promises for 2018 at the end of the post. I always feel sad and sentimental sending off a year. I feel like it's sending off your memories and closing something, when I know it isn't because I don't think of 2016 as a long long memory right now obviously. Maybe it's because I'm getting older almost as soon as a new year starts and that makes me so sentimental as well, feeling like I haven't achieved enough with another number on my age. But that's just a silly thought that motivates me every year somehow. 2017 was a year of big changes for me as I predicted in my 2016 post and I know it's gonna be even more hectic in 2018, but let's first see all the stuff that went on for me in 2017, because whatever I feel like now, it was a fun and really cool year for me with so many new things! I was thinking long how to do this, so I decided to just list everything significant for me with titles and texts and pictures and in completely random order. Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed making it loves! 

 


DENIM DREAM JEANS CAMPAIGN 

As I've probably said here too many times haha, I was the campaign face of Denim Dream Jeans very first collection this year. Denim Dream is a large company here in Estonia that features its own brand, but also Calvin Klein, Guess, Tommy Hilfiger, etc. and I was picked to be the face of the campaign with Sandra and the Estonian singer Kristjan Kasearu, which I was sooo grateful for! Why I feel like this is because it was my very first campaign like this, where I was featured in a TV commercial (saucy one haha) and on billboards, bus stops, magazine covers and shops over Baltics. It was also my first experience filming a campaign and shooting one in one day that left me partly paralyzed the next day and exhausted me to the max, but it was the funnest ever. Very weird to see my face everywhere, but I was proud and the event Denim Dream put together for us was so emotional and sweet that it's one of my brightest memories from 2017!

BIRTHDAY AND BUBBLY

In 2017, I turned 23 and celebrated this with a new collaboration some of us blogger girls started this year - Embassy of Champagne. MY 2017 has been full of bubbly to be clear, because of that amazing collab that has invited us to so many dinner parties, terrace parties and photoshoots with all the bubbly we could drink. I learned to appreciate good champagne and learnt everything about Moet, Veuve and Ruinart, feeling like an expert now on glass types, champagne types and what to eat with what drink. Could honestly say my year wouldn't been half as fun as it wasn't for all these super fun events with EOC, so a big thank you to Hanna and Evelin for putting those things together for us this year! 

 


Moet photoshoot and white party. 


GRADUATION

2017 will forever be marked and stamped and written in my brain because of my university graduation of course! What a landmark in my life! In June, I graduated Lund University, with B.Sc. in Development Studies, with good grades and more credits than needed. Lund was my home for so long and it was one of the happiest (finally done wooop) and saddest moments in my life. Right now I keep wanting going back to Lund so bad, it was such a great city with cool student vibes, but I just might go back there after all for Master's, who knows? Graduation itself was beautiful and well organized, and took place in the amazing historical university building of Lund. The ceremony was grand, the speeches were awesome, but I already had to move back to Estonia the next day, so saying bye to my friends and my long-time home was pretty hard you can imagine. I'm so glad my parents came to my graduation and that J actually could come there in last minute! Meant a lot! I'm gonna post more about Lund University real soon, so stay tuned!

 


Graduation ceremony and look. 

 

RELATIONSHIPS

End of 2017 and me and J are still together haha. Okay okay it's actually special because we hit 5 years this year and he's such a large part of my life by now. There's I think nothing he isn't a part of in my life. He helps me with my blog, he plays football and I love to watch every single game because of my football addiction, we are each others best friends and do so much together. 2017 is also important with the fact that our long-term relationship ended with me finally graduating, so it's been so nice to finally live with him again, learning new stuff all the time and seeing all his sides. I laugh everyday because of him and that's my favourite part. Whatever happens, when I'm curled up sad, he picks me up with his bear arms and places me on his lap and doesn't stop talking until I laugh instead of being sad. My 2017 was great because he is great. And I just can't leave this topic without mentioning how proud I am of my boyfriend this year. He has achieved so many things in football and made himself a hosuehold name this year with his hard work. He won every single aspect of club and national team football, such a rockstar! 
Talking of other relationships, in 2017 I started to catch up and find my long lost good friends and hung out with every one of them after graduating. Also found some amazing new friends for myself, while some started to fade a little due life or due various reasons, but hey, life's like this. Important to have a special one in your life, but also important to have good friends! In 2018, I have to keep reminding myself that all friends aren't friendly with you for the right reasons.
Oh also my fam is doing good and so are my doggies! Happy to spend more time with them now that I'm back in Estonia and it's been pure fun. Sadly I lost my grandpa in 2017, but that's again life and it actually feels a long time ago now, because it was in spring. This was really something that got me good during that time and I really wasn't myself. 




With Marii and J, his title and one of my doggies.


FROM SWEDEN TO ESTONIA/ NEW JOB

Oh I've been wanting to post about this seperately actually. As I said, after graduation I moved to Estonia from Sweden. Summer in Estonia was great, as I started new collaborations, enjoyed summer, spent time with fam and friends and visited Sweden and my friends again. When Autumn came, I started to get sadder as I missed Sweden and school so much and I feel like I don't belong here anymore. Eveyrthing is easy and familiar with everyone also living here, but I don't think my views on life and who I am fit well here. I feel a stronger connection with Sweden by now and that currently hasn't changed, but I am still trying to give my home country a change. The country is beautiful and of course I have my favourite places here that I love and that's why I spend my time in those places as much as I can and doing what I like, Otherwise I would probably be preeettty sad. I did find a great job to do next to my blog job and this has made me a lot happier here as I get to do so many interesting things all week now! There's so much to keep my happy luckily, but I have to think of next steps now that it's time to apply for Master's studies! But yea, it's a very confusing, belonging kind of question for me that I'm trying to figure out. 




One of my most favourite places at home.


BLOG 

Blog has been better than ever and that's completely normal if you keep doing your thing more years. I've learnt so many new editing and photography skills and still on a look-out for style that I feel like is completely me. I've gotten so many new amazing collaborations both in Sweden and Estonia, some bigger than others, but all very important to me. It's been an exciting year with so many blog events I could finally participate in when moved back to Estonia. Every week something cool happens and I've been in a lot of magazine articles, newspapers and online features this year. These make me happy because my very very hard work has been recognized and people like what I do, which makes me grateful and keep on doing what I do. Thank you everyone who has supported my blogging and given me a change to speak my mind on fashion topics and to all my collaborations! You da best! 

I should probably list a few of my fav outfits of 2017 too in another post! 

 


Few summer-y blog posts. 



TRAVELS

I should've travelled more, but I was very busy with graduation and thesis and adjusting to life in Estonia that I didn't get to, but I did visit some places I've never been to so 2017 is a winner in that sense either way! In April, I went to Paris for the first time. I also visited Amsterdam and Netherlands for the first time, which I can't tell you of right now because I'm probably travelling back from there when this post goes live haha. I visted Copenhagen so many times, because it's one of my most favourite cities and found so many new shades of that city that I loved. Also travelled around in Sweden and Estonia, finding new cool places, so I'm glad on that side.

 


Photos from Paris in May. 



Now that I managed to somehow wrap up the awesome 2017 (hopefully didn't miss something important), it's time to set some goals for the whole long upcoming 2018. Should be plenty of time to reach them, right? So, I PROMISE YOU 2018...


I will drink more water (I hate drinking oure water and that's so bad) 
I will try to travel more
I will donate more
I will erase negativity and negative people
I will try to meet up with my friends even more
I will be better with blogging and my work 
I will continue studies
I will go to the gym more
I will spend even more time with dogs and fam 
I will be more organized with everything

 



That's a lot of promises I know, but I think the more the better and some of them are way more important than others too. Just wanted to thank my family, J and his family, my friends, my followers/readers and my collaboration partners and everyone else who have been there with me or supported my work. I'm so grateful for each one of you and hope your 2018 is gonna be successful, exciting, eventful and most of all happy!! Happy New Year! Sending a million hugs and kisses and so much love!! xx











HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!




Thank you Paul for letting me use your studio and for taking my photos!

I don't know what we're gonna do, but I have some locations planned that we set so I'm hoping we're at one of these places and having fun haha! Will tell you when I'm back. I sure wish I was wearing my Dry Lake sequin dress for the night, but I packed warmer party clothes just in case we are gonna hit the streets to party instead. What I wanted to tell you all here is that YOU made my 2017 what it was when it comes to blogging! I am beyond thankful and grateful for each one of you for supporting my work by checking back here and for writing me these very inspirational and sweet letters to the mailbox. I do this for you, to be of some inspiration and help in fashion sense, if it's possible, and when I hear that I have succeded in this, you make me the happiest girl! Thank you thank you thank you for another grea tyear of blogging and I promise to be better and bigger and busier here next year more than ever! I hope the very best for you and again...HAPPY NEW FREAKIN' YEAR!!!! xx

Loodan teile uueks aastaks ainult parimat ja veelkord...HEAD UUT AASTAT! xx




 

GALA DRESS




Dress - Pretty Little Thing/ HERE        Earrings - River Island



Hey guys! I completely forgot to share my football gala look here with you! I was looking specifically for a bright red fishtail dress as this is my most favourite dress type this season. The closest dress I found to that one pictured in my head was that PTL dress which was super cheap but fit so well and I loved to wear it! I needed some mad 15 cm heels to it though. Not the shortest girl but also not the longest. Took a little time to find the dress, but I'm so glad when I actually find something that I'm looking for which is so rare haha! One day if I would ever get a chance to co-design something, I would be thrilled to create everything I have never found from stores. Do you feel me?

Hei! MA olen täiesti unustanud jagada oma jalgpalli gala look'i siin! Ma otsisin väga spetsiifiliselt erkpunast ja kalasaba lõikega maani kleiti, kuna sellised kleidid on see hooaeg mu vaieldamatud lemmikud. Kõige lähedasema kleidi sellele, mis ma peas ette kujutasin, leidsin PTL lehelt, mis oli super odav aga sobis ülihästi ja nii mõnus oli seda kanda! Siiski oli selle juurde vaja ka hullumeelseid 15cm kontsasid. Ma pole just oikeim tüdruk aga no ei ole ka päris lühike. Võttis aega, et selline kleit leida, aga mul on hea meel, et ma üldse leidsin midagi sarnast sellele, mida otsisin, mis on üsna haruldane juhus haha! Kui ma ühel päeval saan võimaluse disainida kuskil oma visiooni järgi riideid, siis ma oleks nii rõõmus disainides kõike, mida ma pole siiamaani suutnud poodidest leida. Mõistate mind ma usun !


MERRY CHRISTMAS




Our Christmas photos. Wearing:

Dress - Dry Lake/ HERE and on sale HERE!     Earrings - River Island



MERRY CHRISTMAS MY LOVELY READERS! Hope you're having lovely holidays (and very long ones)! 


Me and J had such a great time with both of our families. Started off with a dinner with J's family like every year and ended up at the dinner with my family, trying to split our stomachs in half to fit all that food! There was a Santa, there were presents and another Christmas so well spent! I still don't feel like eating haha. By the way, I was happy to see that although people still do gifting, it's not the most important part of that holiday for people anymore. I've seen my friends grow a lot on that part and that's only good to see! Even more, charity and doing good has become extremely popular and everyone who says it's hypocritical and for soscial media forgets that it doesn't matter if its popular or not, people are doing it a lot in all different ways and that's only amazing! We should encourage more and more and make it even more 'popular'! Our family is very supportive of animals and we have a very little local shelter that we bring pillows and blankets to every year. It's simple, but very needed in shelters, so if you have any leftover warm things then please take them to your local shelters because winter is wet and cold. 

Now on another topic, I should probably mention where my dress is from on the photos. To all the Christmas dinners I wore my sparkly Dry Lake dress because it's very cozy with the long sleeves and turtleneck while a little bling makes it more festive. As I said, sparkles and glitter is my thing when November hits and Christmas is no expection. The dress is on now on SALE for Boxing Day at Nelly! 

Now everyone so suddenly starts to think of New Year's Eve plans. Me and J decided to hop by Amsterdam this year as we have never been to Netherlands and I've heard it's one of the best cities in Europe to celebrate NYE at! Definitely excited for this and also the canals, the Amsterdam vibe and all these cute houses! Will try to create some mad good content there too while at it! What are your plans for NYE this year? 

I'm gonna do some planning now for Amsterdam, because we're not staying that long so I would like to do as much as I can. Merry Christmas again and talk to you soon regarding those outfits you should keep an eye on for NYE! x

HÄID JÕULE MU ARMSAD LUGEJAD! Loodan, et teil on väga ilusad pühad ( ja ka pikad muidugi)! 


Meil J'ga olid väga vahvad jõulud mõlema perega. Kõigepealt, nagu iga aasta, alustasime õhtusöögiga J sugulaste juures ja siis suundusime edasi mu pere õhtusöögile, proovides oma kõhte pooleks jagada, et kogu toit ära mahuks! Käis jõuluvana, oli kingitusi ja üldse õnnestusid taaskord ühed toredad jõulud! Siiski ei taha nüüd siiamaani veel midagi süüa haha. Muide oli väga tore näha, et isegi kui ikka tehakse kingitusi, olid need teise järgulised ega pole enam nii tähtis jõulude osa. Näen, et mu sõbrad on palju selles osas kasvanud, et väärtustatakse palju muud rohkem ja seda on nii tore vaadata! Lisaks sellele on muutunud kuidagi väga populaarseks heategevus ja head teod ning neile, kes ütlevad, et see on kuidagi moodi tobe, et heategevust höörutakse sotsiaalmeedias peale ja on tehtud popiks, tahaksin öelda, et popp või mitte, see kõik on ainult hea ja mida rohkem seda üritatakse populaarseks teha seda parem! Igasugune heategevus igasugusel eesmärgil ja igasugustel eriviisidel on vahva! Meie pere näiteks on rohkem fokusseeritud loomadele, seega on juba iga aasta saanud väikseks traditsiooniks viia kohalikku loomad evarjupaika tekke ja patju. Kui kellelgi on üle sooje tekke või midagi sarnast, siis palun viige need oma lähimasse varjupaika, kuna talv on siiski väga külm ja märg ning loomadel on neid vaja! 

Peaksin pisut rääkima ka oma kleidist piltidel. Kandsin kõikidele jõuluõhtusöökidele oma sädelevat Dry Lake kleiti, sest see on väga mugav pikkade varrukate ning kõrge kaelusega, kuid siiski pidulik kuna sädeleb. Nagu ma olen rääkind, siis kõik sädelev ja sillerdav meeldib mulle nii väga kohe kui november kukub ja jõulud pole ka sel puhul erand! Kleit on tänasest ALLAHINNATUD Nelly.com lehel samuti! 

Nüüd hakkavad kõik ju järsku aastavahetuse peale mõtlema. Mina ja J otsustasime see aasta põgeneda Amsterdami, kuna me pole kumbki Hollandis käinud ning ma olen kuulnud, et see on üks ägedamaid Euroopa linnasid, kus aastavahetust pidada! Väga põnevil selle üle ning muidugi ka kanalite, nende nunnude majade ja selle Amsterdami vibe'i üle. Üritan teha ka vingemat content'i kui juba seal! Mis on teie plaanid aastavahetuseks? 

Teengi nüüd pisut planeerimist Amsterdami jaoks, kuna oleme seal nii vähe aega, aga tahaks siiski võimalikult palju näha ja jõuda. Räägime juba peagi ja ilmselt sellel teemal, mida kanda aastavahetuse pidustusteks! x 

MEGA OVERSIZED COAT BY LINDEX




Coat - Lindex (sold out online, but available in stores)        Knit - Topshop        Pants - H&M       Sneakers - Nike 



Good morning! I have a day off and figured it was about time for me to post some new outfit photos, especially the ones I have somehow forgotten. So I found this amazing Lindex coat from Lindex showroom. It's from A/W season and one of the best coats I've seen from Lindex definitely. Every winter Lindex has been the number one, absolutely top please to get beautiful coats from. Through years I've found my most favourite classic coats from there and this HUGE one is now one of them. It's so big I could fit my two friends under it with me (goals) and it almost covers my sneakers too. The coat is all wool, has the coolest inside texture (but I heard the ones in the store have a different inside though? Not sure!) and thanks to all that it is so warm and cozy! I wear mine on especially cold winter days when I want myself to feel like I'm in a blanket but hey, car rides are a bit troubly with this haha! But It kind of as a Rihanna vibe to it right? She likes to wear these huge coats and jackets all the time and I completely get her with that. I have two of these in my closet now! Oh did I mention you can wear this coat as a cape!? Will show you soon! 

Tonight I'm having dinner with the company I work in and will spend the day cleaning my stuff and trying to get back on track with all my undone blog things, e-mails and posts. Have you done all your Christmas shopping yet? I'm done with all except for a few gifting bags that I need to fetch today, because me and J are heading to our hometown for Christmas already tomorrow! 

Talk to you soon! x

___________________________________________________________________________________


Tere hommikust! Mul on täna vaba päev nii et on ideaalne aeg postitada taas üks outfit siia ja kindlasti üks selline, mille olen täiesti unustanud postitada. NIi siis, leidsin selle ägeda mantli Lindexi showroom'ist. See on sügis-talve kollektsioonist ning üks parimaid mantleid, mis ma Lindexilt näinud. Iga talv on Lindex olnud number üks ja täiesti top koht, kust leida ilusaid mantleid. Läbi aastate olen leidnud oma kõige ilusamad klassikalised mantlid just sealt ja see TOHUTU mantel on nüüd üks nendest. See on nii suur, et ma saaks kaks oma sõpra mahutada selle alla (goals) ja see katab peaaegu et isegi mu ketsid ära. Mantel on üleni villast, koos väga laheda mustriga voodriga (kuulsin küll, et poes on vist müügil teise voodriga mantlid? Pole päris kindel!) ja tänu sellele on mantel nii soe ja mugav! Kannan enda oma väga külmadel talvepäevadel, kui tahaks nagu teki sees olla, aga hei, autosõidud on sellega siiski pisut keerulised haha! KUidagi oleks nagu see mantel Rihanna vibe'iga eks? Talle meeldib kanda neid tohutu suuri mantleid ja jakke ja ma täiesti mõistan teda selle kohapealt. Mul on nüüd kapis juba kaks sellist! Ah ja, kas ma mainisin, et seda mantlit saab kanda ka keebina!? Näitan seda juba peagi! 

Täna söön õhtust firmaga, kus töötan ja päeva veedan oma asju koristades ja proovides rajale tagasi saada postituste, blogitöö, e-mailide ja muu sellisega. Muide kas te olete kõik jõulukingid juba ära ostnud? Mul on kõik olemas peale paari kinkepaki, mida pean ka täna poodlema minema, sest me J'ga liigume juba homme kodulinna ära jõuludeks 

Räägime peagi! x

HOLIDAYS WITH DANIEL WELLINGTON

 

Watch and Cuffs (Holiday Gift Bundle Package) - Daniel Wellington/ HERE 



Hey you! First of all, HAVE YOU DONE ALL THE CHRISTMAS SHOPPING!?! I bet you've seen all over my Instagram by now this amazing Daniel Wellington watch, but hey, it seems that every time I turn around DW manages to produce another watch that becomes my yet another favourite! The golden and black metal wristband one came with the cutest Christmas packaging that included the small cuff too. Can't imagine a more perfect gift for someone who loves watches and well, who doesn't like watches? Such a sure go as a gift. I wear mine everyday currently and with two small DW cuffs, because they fit the watch well and make my arm look so elegant. If you love DW watches as much as I do then I guess a discount code wouldn't hurt! Code 'merylmgi' at checkout gives a whole 15% off any order, but make sure to check out the holiday bundles! 

Yesterday me and J got back to Tallinn and headed for a coffee to Nordic Design Home, where I planned to go for ages due to the cute marble tables and good cappuchinos. Interesting way to combine a furniture shop with a cafe, but it works! We decided to book some trip to spend New Years Eve somewhere else, but it's been so much deciding and last minute deals aren't that flattering that after work today, I've been dealing with that for hours haha, but I THINK we finally got something out if it, but I definitely need a good night sleep before any more planning. Tomorrow I'm gonna shoot some outfits with Kristjaana and will head to work and have dinner with friends after. Happy Christmas week! It's finally here! x

____________________________________________________


Hei sina! Kõigepealt alustaksin küsimusega, et KAS JÕULUKINGID ON TEHTUD JUBA!? Ilmselt olete juba mõnda aega märganud mu Instagramis üht imeilusat Daniel Wellingtoni kella, mida ma kogu aeg piltidel kannan, kuid lihtsalt tundub, et igakord kui ma selja keeran on DW tulnud välja järjekordse kellaga, mis mu lemmikuks saab! Uus lemmik on kuldne ja must metallist wristband'iga (eesti keeles?), mis tuli väga armsa jõulupakiga, mis sisaldas ka väikest DW käevõru. Ei kujuta ette ilusamat kingitust kellelegi, kellele käekellad väga meeldivad ja olgem ausad, palju neid on kellele ei meeldi? Täielik kinda peale minek kingitusena. Ma kannan enda kella iga päev praegu ja just kahe DW käevõruga koos, kuna need klapivad kellaga hästi ja teevad käe kuidagi elegantseks. Kui sulle meeldivad DW käekellad nii palju kui mulle, siis ei teeks üks allahindluskood ka paha eks? Kood 'merylmgi' annab kõikidelt DW aksessuaaridelt checkout'is 15% alla, kuid kindlasti vaadake enne üle jõulu bundle'id! 

Eile jõudsime J'ga tagasi Tallinna ja suundusime otse kohvile Nordic Design Home'i, kuhu olen juba ammu tahtnud minna nende armsate marmorlaudade ja väga hea cappuchino tõttu. Huvitav viis kombineerida omavahel mööblipood ja kohvik, aga toimib! Otsustasime seal, et veedaks aastavahetuse kuskil mujal, kuid sellega on olnud nii palju otsustamist ja viimase hetke diilid pole ka just kõige meeldivamad nii et pärast töölt koju tulekut täna olen ma vist juba 5 tundi sellega tegelenud, aga me VIST LÕPUKS leidsime ka midagi, kuid enne kui ma midagi otsustan mul vaja väheke magada haha. Homme pildistame Kristjaanaga enne kui tööle suundun ja pärast tööd on sõpradega õhtusöök. Rõõmsat jõulunädalat kõigile! Ongi ju lõpuks käes! x 

CHRISTMAS DINNER OUTFIT IDEAS



Look 1: Topshop
Look 2: River Island
Look 3: Topshop
Look 4: Boohoo


Here it is as promised, my last minute guide for all of you who don't know what to wear to Christmas festivities. I used some of my best known webshops that have the stuff I had in mind and used them to make an outfit collage. As I've said, someone very fond of sparkly glitz and sequin comes out of me every November that throws her minimalism out of the window and starts loving everything extra and glam for 2 months. I tried very hard to stay away from sequin and sparkle when putting together the Christmas quide (note: I tried), but the webshops are filled with so many beautiful things I couldn't stay away! I decided to put together different versions so hopefully everyone could find some ideas or inspiration out of the post.

First one from Topshop is the all black outfit that has the focus on the long midi skirt with a slit that is perfect for wintertime and to avoid it becoming too black, I added some sparkly ankle boots that are now in stores basically everywhere you go. I think the best top that goes with this outfit is the wide sleeve one. 

The second one I put together from River Island, oe of the top places to go to for party outfits this year! FIrst I saw these leather net boots and just had to style them with something. I thought pointy toe shoes look the best with wide leg sparkly pants and a fun white top. It's a super eye-catching outfit that will probably make you the most stylish guest out of all dinner goers for sure! 

The third outfit, also from Topshop, is something for me haha! Super-extra sequin boots styled with minimal sparkle and simple cut black dress with long sleeves. I'm actually wearing the exact same looking dress, but from Dry Lake brand instead. I won't add as sparkly shoes to it, but I think if I would have these boots in my closet, I would definitely style them the exact way. I'm definitely wearing over knee boots to that dress though! 

The fourth and the last outfit is the one I actually have on my mind evry year when thinking of CHristmas parties, but I somehow end up going for something else anyway every year. NExt year I'm just gonna go with that picture in my head - red long sleeve velvet dress and over knee boots with a little shine or sparkle. Red velvet dresses are SUPER flattering on everyone and red goes so well with Christmas! It's important to let the dress shine so I would choose simple black over knees to it. Oh now I remember...the best red velvet dresses have actually been sold out every year, that's why I didn't get them! Explains a lot...and no wonder they are sold out! 

These are my little suggestions if you happen to have any of these pieces the stores nearby or something similar in your closet already! Hope these small tips were useful and gave some good ideas for the party season! I'll make sure to have a new guide up for New Year's though! x

MY TIMBERLAND'S




Coat - Bik Bok         Leggings - ICANIWILL/ HERE        Boots - Timberland (Sportland) 



Brrrr it's cold!! The ground looks like the one on photos every morning now and when I wear my heeled boots to work I feel like I'm in a skating ring and walk like a little chicken haha, I just can't help being the clumsiest with a little bit of frosty outside! Timberland boots are probably the only boots that can keep me on ground with my feet and keep me from break dancing when trying to avoid a fall. I already have had the classical 6 inch yellow boot for a few years and loved to wear them every winter obviously, but I kind of felt like having some more colours since I wear them too much and decided to get a pair of grey ones too. They are as comfy, warm and pretty as the yellow ones, but these are waterproof so I can actually get them as wet as I want to now (yay) and not worry about snow damaging them too much. The light grey shade is perfect for wearing with everything, but I love to wear these with my ICANIWILL jeggings as they have the ideal colour match (monochrome is always a winner) and well they make that butt of your look hella good! Active wear perfection huh? As I re-found my love for Timberland's again once snow came down, then I'm thinking what colour my next pair should be. Bright red? Black? White? Let me know what colour is your favourite Timberland colour in the comments! x

_________________________________________________________


Brrr kui külm on! Maapind näeb selline nagu piltidel välja iga hommik nüüd ja igakord kui kannan oma kontsasaapaid tööle on tunne nagu uisutaks jääväljakul ja kõnnin nagu tibu haha, sest ma ei saa lihtsalt oma jalgu maapeal hoitud kui väljas asi pakaseks kisub! Timberland'i saapad on ilmselt ainukesed saapad, mis hoiavad mu maa küljes kinni ja hoiavad ära selle koleda breiktantsu, mida ma teen, et kukkumist vältida. Mul on aastaid olnud juba klassikalised 6 inch kollased saapad, aga tundsin et tahaks mingit värvi veel juurde valikusse, kuna kannan neid juba liiga palju. Otsustasin seega uute hallide kasuks. Nad on muidugi sama mugavad, soojad ja ilusad kui kollasedki, aga see paar on veekindel, mis tähendab, et ma saan need teha nii märjaks kui tahan (jee) ega pea muretsema, et lumi neid kahjustada saaks. Helehall toon on ideaalne kõige juurde kandmiseks, kuid mu lemmik viis on neid kanda ICANIWILL jeggins'itega, kuna need on täpselt toon tooni (monokroom on ju alati võitja) ja need püksid muudavad selle taguotsa kohe eriti ilusaks! Sportlike riiete perfektsus kas pole? Kuna ma leian iga talv end uuesti fännamas Timberland'e nagunii, siis mõtlen juba uue paari peale. Mis värvi need olla võiks? Erkpunased? Mustad? Valged? Andke mulle teada, milline teie lemmik Timberland'i paar on kommentaarides! x

MY FAVOURITE VANI-T PRODUCTS




Shop VANI-T products HERE


Hey babes! Today I wanna talk about something that I've planned to tell you about for too long by now, but it's been quite uneasy for me as I had trouble with creating the post. For some time now I've only had my 85mm lens and after making a 15 minute long video for you about VANI-T tanning products, I finally realized my lens cannot record sound, so all that went to waste and I had to figure out a way to bring this post to you guys and well all I could do was this long photo-text post, so I hope you find some good tips nevertheless on how to get the perfect tan!

I met Liis this summer when she opened her proffesional spray tan salon Arabellah in Tartu where she uses only VANI-T products (and sells them there too) and after having used so many self-tanning products by now, I was introduced to a whole new exciting range at the salon. First of all, she does amazing spray tan and her salon looks incredibly cute! I'm always happy to go to hers whenever I need a tan boost quickly without harming my skin, but since I move between Tallinn and Viljandi mostly, I don't get to hop by her salon as much as I wish I could. BUT with the products she shared with me from VANI-T I actually can manage a kick-ass tan on my own too! I've tried all the popular self-tanners one by one and honestly liked them all a lot, but VANI-T is so different in the sense that it is a genuinely strong self-tanner that has a quick and efficient effect. My skin hasn't been really accepting of self-tanners before, but these products really give me a strong tan plus they are all cruelty free products and Australian made. I hope you've noticed that I'm quite tan for winter time (and sadly no vacay) on my photos and this is all thank to the following products I'm gonna introduce. 

____________________________________________________________________

Hei tibid! Täna tahaksin rääkida millestki, mida olen planeerinud juba piinlikult kaua, kuid sellega on nii palju mingeid tobedaid tõrkeid ette tulnud, et mul oli raske postitust ära teha. Mõnda aega on nüüd mul olnud ainult mu 85mm objektiiv kaameral ja pärast VANI-T isepruunistavate toodete 15 minutilise video filmimist sellega avastasin ma, et selle objektiiviga ei saa salvestada heli. Kõik see vaev läks raisku ja pidin leidma viisi, kuidas postitus teieni ikkagi kiirelt tuua ja kõik mis ma teha sain oli see foto-teksti postitus, kuid loodan, et leiate ikkagi ka siit häid nippe kuidas saada ideaalne päevitus! 

Tutvusin Liisiga sel suvel kui ta avas oma professionaalse spreipäevituse salongi Arabellah Tartus, kus ta kasutab vaid VANI-T tooteid (ning ka müüb neid seal) ning pärast mitmete isepruunistavate toodete kasutamist, tutvusin ma taaskord täiesti uudse ja põneva isepruunistavate liiniga tema salongis. Esiteks, tema tehtud spreipäevitus on super ilus ja salong on üks armsamaid, kus ma käinud! Mul on alati hea meel teda külastada kui mul on vaja kiiret päevitus boost'i ilma oma nahka kahjustamata, aga kuna ma peamiselt sõelun Tallinna ja Viljandi vahel, siis ma ei saa külastada salongi nii tihti kui tegelikult vaja läheks. AGA need VANI-T tooted, mis ta minuga jagas, lahendavad selle mure täielikult, kuna saan ise ägeda päevituse endale teha! Olen proovinud paljusid poppe isepruunistavaid ja kõigigia olen tegelikult ka väga rahul olnud, aga VANI-T on erinev just selle poolest, et see on väga tugeva toimega, millel on kiire ja tõhus tulemus. Mu nahk pole väga vastuvõtlik tegelikult isepruunistavate suhtes, aga need tooted annavad mulle kohe selle õige tumeda päevituse pluss need on cruelty free ja Austraaliast pärit. Loodan, et olete tähele pannud, et olen terve talve nüüd üsna pruun olnud kogu aeg (kahjuks ilma ühegi puhkusereisita) fotodel ning see on olnud kõik tänu nendele toodetele, mida nüüd tutvustan.





The Mittens - Tan Eraser and the Tan Glove


I'm gonna start with the tools first since these are really essential for this tan to work it's magic the best. First thing I do 1-2 days before applying the tanning mousse or going to the salon for spray is that I scrub my whole body and face with the Tan Eraser glove under the shower which is so efficient for removing all dead skin and leftover tan and everything you don't want under your new tan. It's really strong so it's better not to do it right before spray tan or the mousse. When this little mitten has done its job and it's time to add the tanning mousse, then I love to use the really soft velvety glove from VANI-T. In Estonian we have this saying "stupid-proof" which I don't know if it exists in English, but it means that even if you really suck at applying tan then this glove will make sure that everything ends up looking well anyway. Blends so nicely and so easy to glide down the skin! Find them HERE & HERE

___________________________________________________________________________________

Alustan esmalt abivahenditega, kuna need on tõesti üliolulised, et see päevitus tuleks võimalikult ilus. Kõigepealt, 1-2 päeva enne päevituse peale kandmist või salongi sprei jaoks minemist, koorin ma naha täielikult Tan Eraser kindaga dušši all, mis on nii tõhus surnud naha ja igasugu toodete jääkide eemaldamisel. Põhiliselt kõik eemaldab, mida sa kindlasti oma päevituse alla ei taha jätta. See on üsna tugev koorija, sega ei soovitata päris kohe enne päevitust seda teha. Kui see väike kinnas oon oma töö tublilt ära teinud ning on aeg lisada peale päevitusvaht, siis selleks kasutan üht väga pehmet ja sametist kinnast VANI-T'ilt. Meil on ju selline väljend Eestis nagu "lollikindel", mis on täpselt see, mida selle kinda kohta öelda võib. Isegi kui sa ei ole üldse pädev igasugu isepruunistajatega, siis see kinnas aitab päevituse ühtlasena peale kanda, et ei jääks mingeid tugevaid rante ega laike. Kinnas hajutab väga sujuvalt vahtu ning libiseb kiirelt üle naha. Leia need kindad SIIT ja SIIT






The Self-Tanning Mousse 


And we're already down to the most important part of the tan - the mousse! Now this is pure gold. It leaves the tan olive-ish and not orange at all and I think mousse is the easiest to apply from all self-tanning methods. I usually start by applying to legs first with long strokes and then to stomach with circles and then I move up until I reach the face which I apply last with the leftover mousse on the glove. So many ask me if I have to re-apply the product to the glove over and over and the answer is yes, if you want ta proper strong and even tan. However, I'm still on my first product and I think it has more than half of the product left, so it lasts really long! I leave the mousse on my face for 2-3 hours and remove it with a cotton pad and water and then I'll let the rest of the body stay in the product for 6-7 hours usually and then will rinse it off with water, but the foam develops a tan really quickly, so mostly 4 hours would already be enough. Aaaand it's simple as that! It's so easy to use and leaves the most beautiful tan that lasts for 10 days if cared for properly and the care products are the ones I'm gonna introduce next. Find it HERE

Ja juba olemegi jõudnud põhitegelase juurde - isepruunistav vaht! Vot see on puhas kuld. Jätab naha oliivitooni mitte oranzi ning ma arvan, et vahtu ongi kõige lihtsam peale kanda kõikidest isepruunistavate meetoditest. Ma tavaliselt alustan jalgadest, kui kannan vahu pikkade tõmmetega peale ning siis liigun kõhule, millele kanna ringjate liigutustega ning liigun üles kuni näoni, millel kasutan kindale järele jäänud toodet. Paljud küsivad minult kas vahtu tuleb kogu aeg juurde kindlae panna ning vastus on et jah, kui sa tahad et päevitus oleks tugev ja ühtlane. Siiski olen ma alles oma esimese potsiku juures ja seegi pole vist isegi poolenisti ära kulunud nii et ühest tootest jätkub ikka päris kauaks! Vahu jätan näole kuskil 2-3ks tunniks ning eemaldan vee ja vatitupsuga ning kehale jätan kuskil 6-7 tunniks ja siis loputan veega maha, kuid kuna tegemist on väga kiire toimega vahuga, siis 4st piisab ka täiesti. Jaaa ongi nii lihtne! Vahtu on nii lihtne kasutada ning see jätab super kauni jume, mis kestab õigesti hooldades pea 10 päeva. Hooldusvahendeid selleks tutvustangi kohe järgmisena. Vahu leiad SIIT





Bronzing Custard


Another one I would call pure gold again. The custard is a bronzing body creme that you can build up your tan with day after day until you reach the perfect shade you want. It really doesn't need any products underneath it because it gives such a nice golden glow on its own already, but at the same time it's the perfect moisturizer that keeps the mousse tan strongly on your skin and beautifully bronze. Liis advised me to use an everyday body moisturizer the day after spray tan or the mousse tan and then next day should start using the bonzing custard and then again an ordinary mositurizer and so on, because a little too much of that custard at once could turn tan a bit orange. If I could pick only one product out of all the ones I've tried from VANI-T then it definitely would be the custard, because I love the golden tan it gives so much and it's so good that I can actually control how tan I want to be and where. Find it HERE

Järgmine toode, mida kutsun puhtaks kullaks. Bromzing Custard on kehakreem, millega saab oma päevitust igapäevaselt tumedamaks üles ehitada kuni leiad täpselt selle jume, mis meeldib. Selle juurde polegi tegelikult mingeid lisatooteid vaja, kuna see üksi juba annab nii kena kuldse jume, kuid samal ajal on ta ka tõhus niisutaja. mis aitab hoida sprei või vahupäevitust tugevalt nahal ning ilusa pronksina. Liis soovitas mul kasutada päev pärast spreid või isepruunistavat mingit taalist igapäevast kehakreemi ning järgmine päev juba custard'i, siis jälle tavalist ja siis jälle custard'i jne., kuna liiga palju custard'i teiste toodete peale võib siiski jätta oranzika tooni. Kui ma saaksin valida vaid ühe toote nendest kõigist VANI-T toodetest, oleks see tõenäoliselt just custard, kuna mulle meeldib selle kuldne toon nii väga ja mulle meeldib, et ma saan hästi kontrollida, kui palju jumet mul peale tuleb ja kuhu.

Body Shampoo

This here is another tan-care product that will help you keep your tan fresh for a longer time. Our shower gels usually contain some sort of oils that could erase the tan quicker than it should and a lot of showering will lighten the tan anyway, so this shampoo is here to save you from all that and protects the tan while still well, cleaning you up properly! The smell is so nice and similar to the custard. I think it's really important to have all these tan products with the care ones from the same company because they've been built to fit every product and this shampoo is definitely made for protecting VANI-T tan. Find that one HERE.

Jäänud on veel üks päevituse hooldamise toode, mis aitab päevitusel kauem püsida - body shampoo. Tavalised dušigeelid sisaldavad igasugu õlisid, mis võivad päevituse kiiremini maha pesta kui peaks ning tihe pesuskäik kulutab päevitust juba ise aina rohkem maha, seega see keha shampoo on selleks, et päästa sind kõigest sellest ja kaitseb su päevitust, kuid samal ajal peseb ka ju puhtaks! Lõhn on sellel nii meeldiv, sarnane custard'i omale. Ma arvan, et on väga oluline, et oleks kõik need päevitustooted olemas ja samalt firmalt, kuna need on loodud just üksteisega sobima ja üks teist täitustama ning see shampoo on kindlasti kohe mõeldud just VANI-T päevitust kaitsma.

Hope you all found some good tips for self-tanning, especially now when we have little to zero sun in Estonia and burning our skin in solariums is just not good enough anymore. For me solariums have always been annoying because I have to go so many times to get a proper tan and it doesn't stay long either, but self-tanners are so easy and finally so highly developed that they don't leave us orange or spotty anymore. VANI-T until now has been the most perfect fit for my skin and the way I like to have my tan. They all smell divine and last really long so I think they would be the most perfect Christmas gift for someone who would love to use them too! For example, VANI-T has lovely all inclusive gifting package that you can find HERE! All the products I've intorduced and more are available on www.arabellah.eu site, which is the official website for the Arabellah Salon in Tartu. You can also buy the products straight from the salon. For spray tan you have to book in advance and it's the easiest to book via Facebook at "Arabellah Spray Tanning" page. I actaully have one more product to introduce to you guys, but I'm gonna do it under my upcoming post about new favourite make-up products, because this is definitely tan related, but doesn't create any itself.

Hope you enjoyed this long post and happy tanning! x

Loodan, et leidsite endale mõned head nipid isepruunistavate jaoks, eriti praeguses null päikesega Eestis ning teades, kui kahjulik solaarium meie nahale on. Minu jaoks on solaariumid alati olnud pigem nuhtlused, kuna ma pean minema nii palju kordi, et mingigi korralik jume peale saada ja see ei püsi ka kaua peal, kuid isepruunistavad on palju lihtsamad ja kiiremad ning on arenenud piisavalt, et ei jää enam oranziks ega laiguliseks kergelt. VANI-T on siiani olnud minu naha jaoks ideaalseim klapp ja täpselt seda tooni nagu mulle ka meeldib. Kõik tooted lõhnavad imehästi ja kestavad kaua nii et ma arvan, et tegemist oleks ühe ideaalse jõulukingiga just inimesele, kes hindaks üht head päevitust! Näiteks on VANI-Til kokku pandud üks vahva kinkepakk, mis sisaldab kõike vajalikku ja mille leiab SIIT! Kõik tooted ja rohkemgi on saadaval www.arabellah.eu veebilehel, mis on Arabellah Tartu salongi ametlik veebileht. Tooteid saab osta ka otse salongist. SPreipäevituse jaoks tuleb aga ette broneerida aeg, mida saab lihtsalt teha Arabellah salongi FAcebook'i lehel nimega "Arabellah Spray Tanning". Tegelikult on mul üks toode veel, mida teile tutvustada, aga see kuulub rohkem meigikategooria alla, seega kuuleb sellest mu tulevases postituses praegustest lemmik meigitoodetest. See on küll päevitusega seotud, kuid ise ei loo seda.

Loodan, et see pikk postitus andis head infot ja rõõmsat päevitamist! x 


PINK AND FURRY




Faux Fur - Zara        Jeans - Calvin Klein/ Denim Dream        Boots & Bag - Guess/ Denim Dream       Knit - Topshop



It's the start of a new week and I can't believe the second Sunday of December has already passed. Oh how I love Christmas time every year with Mariah carey being my jam, with the lights everywhere and all these tangarines, glögg and truffles in my tummy. Definitely the most wonderful time of the year and I'm feeling it to the fullest right now! I've got all the presents planned already so I can actually enjoy the rest of the December haha! This week I don't really have any events or photoshoots planned, which is sooo nice over such a long time because I get to focus on work and posting on blog instead of creating and I have more time to spend with J and with fam this way. Really needed this week to happen, since next week it's gonna be events again and Christmas ALREADY! Don't get me wrong, I love all the events my blog has enabled for me to attend, but I kind of want to just visit the Christmas market one evening too and now I can without being extemely tired. I just might be really low on vitamins too to be honest, but I lose energy so quickly during winter. This really sounds like my classic blogpost - started to talk about Christmas and ended up with vitamin-talk in no time. I never edit my texts though, I just leave my thoughts the way they appeared when I typed the post down. 

This outfit actually got the most likes I've gotten on Instagram. Of course the beautiful snowy scenery helped a lot, but these pieces are really so gorgeous! Thanks for the photos Kristjaana! Found that pink fur from Zara a few months ago and just had to get it and now people like to hug me just to feel all that softness of that coat hahah! One of my favourite pieces this winter for sure. My Calvin Klein leather jeans and Guess leather boots are always the best fit for faux fur no doubt. I discovered today that I don't have any online shopping recommendations posted lately, so I'm gonna post a Christmas outfit inspiration for you here in near days for all of you who still wonder what to wear to all these parties. I'm gonna send off a few more e-mails and will drop to bed asap, so you all have a good night! x

On uue nädala agus ja uskumatu, et möödas on juba teine advent. Oi kuidas mulle jõuluaeg meeldib iga aasta koos Mariah Carey, jõulutulukeste ning mu kõhus olevate mandariinide, glögi ja trühvitega. Kindlasti kõige toredam aeg aastas ja mul on täielikult jõulutunne nüüdseks ka peal! Isegi kõik kingitused on juba planeeritud, seega saan rahulikult ülejäänud detsmebri hingata haha! Sel nädalal pole mul mingeid üritusi ega suuremaid pildistamisi planeeritud, mis on nii nii tore üle pika aja, kuna saan keskenduda tööle ja blogisse postitamisele selle asemel, et luua kogu aeg juurde midagi. Samuti saan veeta rohkem aega J ja perega. Väga oli sellist nädalat vaja, sest järgmine nädal on jälle üritusi täis ja juba siis ongi jõulud JUBA! Ärge minust muidugi valesti aru saage, mulle ülimalt meeldivad need üritused, mis mu blogi mulle võimaldanud on, aga tahaks ju leida selle ühe õhtu, et külastada jõuluturgu ilma, et oleks väga väsinud. Võib-olla olen lihtsalt vitamiinidega miinimumil, et praegu nii kiirelt ära väsin. See kõlab nii nagu mu tüüpiline blogipostitus - alustan jõuluteemal ja jõuan kiirelt vitamiinipuuduseni oma jutustamisega. Ma ei kirjuta kunagi oma blogiteksti üle vaid jätan selle nii nagu torust tuleb alati. 

See outfit kusjuures sai kõige rohkem like mu Instagram'is läbi aegade. Muidugi super kaunis talvine taust aitas sellele kaasa, aga need riideesemed on ju samuti vahvad! Aitäh fotode eest Kristjaana! Leidsin selle roosa karvase kasuka mõned kuud tagasi Zarast ja pidin selle lihtsalt kaasa viima ja nüüd tahavad kõik mind kallistada, kuna see on nii ülipehme hahah! Kindlasti üks mu lemmik esemeid see talv mida kanda. Need Calvin Kleini nahkteksad ja Guess'i nahksaapad on alati kindel valik karvaste kasukate juurde nagu ka selgi puhul. Avastasin täna, et ma pole päris ammu juba postitanud netipoe soovitusi, seega lähipäevil leiate siit jõulupidude inspiratsiooni, kui veel on mõne peo riietus lahtine ega tea mida selga panna. Saadan veel mõned e-mailid teele ja kukun ruttu voodisse ära, seega head ööd kõigile! x 

BRIGHT SPOT IN ALL THAT GREY

 




Wearing River Island head-to-toe.


Coat - HERE       Skirt - HERE       Boots - HERE (on sale!)     Bag - HERE (from RI store, sold out online)      Knit - HERE


 

It's Saturday and I'm the sleepiest I've been this week. There have been so many events this week that I don't feel like doing anything today except fort his blog post. Had some fun yesterday at Guess brand party with Denim Dream stores and Guess babes with lots of chit-chat and a fun competition you will hear about soon here. After that afternoon event me and J went party clothes-bow tie- suit shopping for tomorrow's football gala and then we headed for a dinner party with my parents and happened to suddenly go out at 2am haha, so I'm realllly tired today. Only managed to drive to Tallinn and go to hairdressers today, but feeling so fresh and so blonde again. I'm definitely heading to bed quick, because I wanna get up early to get a lot of wrok done before getting ready for the gala event. J is nominated as the best player of the season, so fingers crossed he will get what he absolutely deserves tomorrow! I've seen no one else work so hard whole season through. 

I just wanted to clarify that photos won't do any justice to this amazing colour this River Island coat has. I tried to edit it the way that it would show its true pink-purple shade, but it's just something that has to be seen (and tried on!). It's funny that all these compliments I've gotten during last weeks are for my River Island jackets and coats. They truly have nailed the color scheme this season. I was considering for a long time at RI store if I would actually wear something so bright and pink so much that it's worth getting it from the store, but I've found myself wearing this coat over and over again on so many different colors. I think it really brings out blonde hair and puts a smile on the streets on this grey and dark time. I styled the coat with a lighter pink knit that I also have in black and with a detailed leather skirt, a super awesome looking bright red cross-body bag and the best thigh high boots I've owned. They are so so comfortable to walk in due to that low block heel and the pointy toe part makes them really chic to wear to parties or on streets. Another pair of boots I've found myself wearing too much right now, but hey, all my dresses just go with them! I have a really fun project attached to these outfit photos actually, but I can't tell you before it's done, so keep yourself tuned in! 

I'm gonna tuck in with J and watch the other half of the movie we started, so nighty night! x

On laupäev ja unisem ei saakski olla. See nädal oli nii palju erinevaid toredaid üritusi, et ma ei viitsi täna rohkem midagi teha peale selle blogipostituse. Eile lõbutsesime Guess'i brändi peol, mida korraldas Denim Dream. Sain Guess'i tüdrukutega lobiseda ja võistelda - mis täpsemalt, sellest kuulete siin juba üsna pea. Pärast seda pärastlõunast pidu läksime J'ga shoppama peoriideid-kikilipse-ülikonda homseks jalgpalli galaks ja siis sõitsime Viljandisse, et süüa mu vanematega õhtust ja kogemata juhtusime ka välja minema kella 2 paiku haha, seega ma olen tõesti väsinud täna. Õnneks siiski sain täna Tallinnasse tagasi sõidetud ja juuksuris käidud, nii et olen taas ärske ja väga blond. Peaksin päris vara magama minema ka, kuna tahaksin hommikul palju tööd tehtud saada enne kui galaks sättima hakkan. J on nomineeritud hooaja parimate jalgpallurite hulgas, seega pöidlad pihku, et ta selle auhinna mida ta väärib ka koju toob! Pole näinud kedagi teist nii palju selle võidu nimel pingutamas. 

Tahaksin täpsustada, et need pildid siin ei õigusta kuidagi selle River Islandi mantli õiget ja imeilusat lillakas-roosat tooni. Proovisin töödelda seda nii ja naa pidi, aga seda peab ikka päriselus ise nägema (ja muidugi proovima!). Naljaks, et kõik komplimendid, mis ma viimastel nädalatel saanud olen on just minu River Islandi mantlite ja jakkide kohta. RI on tõesti kümnesse pannud oma värviskeemiga see hooaeg. Mõtlesin küll poes kaua, et kas ma ikka võtan kaasa nii erkroosa ja kireva mantli, kuid nüüd leian end uuesti ja uuesti seda kandmas igasugu erinevate värvidega koos. Arvan, et see toob blondid juuksed eriti hästi esile ja paneb tänavatele väikese naeratuse sellel pimedal ja hallil ajal. Sobitasin mantli heledama roosa kampsuniga, mis on mul ka kapis mustana olemas, ja juurde lisasin detailidega musta nahkseeliku, super ägeda erkpunase õlakoti ja parimad üle põlve saapad, mis mul siiani olnud. Nendega on nii mugav kõndida tänu sellele madalale plokk-kontsale ja teravad ninad teevad need saapad eriti šikiks, mis sobivad nii peole kui ka lihtsalt tänavale. Järjekordne paar saapaid, mida olen end kandmas leidnud juba liiga palju viimasel ajal, kuid siiski, kõik mu kleidid juhtuvad just nendega ka sobima! Tegelikult on nende piltidega seotud üks vahva väike projekt, aga sellest kuuleb alles siis kui see valmis niiet püsige siin lainel! 

Keeran end nüüd J'ga diivanile rulli ja vaatame pooleli jäänud filmi lõpuni. Head ööd! x 

BLACK FAUX FUR BY DRYLAKE




Faux Fur - Dry Lake/ HERE (sold out right now, but keep an eye on for re-stock!)       Jeans - Levi's       Boots & Knit - River Island/ HERE        Sunglasses - Ray Ban


Hey all! Happy midweek humpday whatever wednesday is! I am so so happy to be making this post to be honest. When I first moved to Sweden and started looking around in stores, I found some that were selling Dry Lake brand and I always happened to notice them most during winter seaosn when all the most glittery dresses and the cutest faux fur were with their brand tag. By third year I could tell from far when someone was wearing Dry Lake faux fur coats because they are so distinguishable with their perfection every year, doesn't matter which colour which season has. Now that I have my hands on one of their fur coats I am the happiest because it is are exactly as good quality and beautiful as I always found them to be. I love mine so much and I wear it all the time right now. The black fur is shiny and beautiful and has such nice poofy texture. Can't wait to post some more with this! Definitely gonna wear that one to the football gala this weekend too, which brings me to my week's plans.

I think I have something fun for each day of this week. Yesterday we went to the candy factory of Kalev and made our very own hand-made truffles with the Lindex crew. They told us about the kids that go there and make a huge mess and once I looked down at my truffles I noticed I actually am that kid hahah! But hey, the lady was right that at first they might look like someone pooped on a plate, but once you put them in a pretty box with decorations they suddenly become princess truffles and so it was lol. Happy to be a truffle-expert now! Today I had the change to try out another facial and this time with Madara products at the Natural Goods Company salon. Feeling even more shiny and fresh than after spa! Now tomorrrrow I'm gonna go have a little photoshoot with Kristjaana and bow tie shopping for J and in the evening I'll hop by Kaubamaja to get my hair fixed and theeen it's time for the Bastion and Goldtime fashion show at Hilton hotel. Friday it's gonna be Denim Dream lunch with Guess collection and then I'm off to hometown with J because I need to grab some party stuff for the football gala on Sunday. I'm having such a good week and good mood lately and I love that it's been less rain and more snow as everything seems brighter that way. Finally developed some Christmas feeling as well, which makes everything extra happy! Will keep you posted with all the events and there's so many winter outfits to come! 

Sending hugs! x

Helllloo! Vahvat kesknädalat humpday'd või mis iganes nimega kolmapäeva meeldib kutsuda! Mul on ausalt väga hea meel seda postitust siin alustada. Kui ma mõned aastad tagasi Rootsi kolisin esimest korda ja enda jaoks uutes poodides ringi vaatasin, siis avastasin just talvehooajal, et kõige säravamad litterkleidid ja armsaimad karvakasukad on Dry Lake brändi sildiga. Kolmadanks aastaks suutsin juba kaugelt ära öelda, kellel on Dry Lake kunstkarvast kasukas seljas, sest need paistavad kohe silma oma silmapaistva perfektsusega igal aastal, olenemata mis toonid ja stiil mis hooajal moes on. Nüüd kui mul on lõpuks ka endal see kasukas kapis olen ma üliõnnelik, kuna see ongi tõesti nii kvaliteetne ja ilus kui ma alati arvasin. Kindlasti mu igapäevane vaieldamatu lemmik mida kanda praegu. Must karv läigib ilusti ja tekstuur on selline mõnus puhvis. Ei jõua ära oodata, et sellega juba rohkem postitada! Kindlasti kannan seda ka pühapäevasele jalgpalligalale ja see toobki mind selle nädala plaanide juurde.

Mul on vist selle nädala igaks päevaks midagi toredat plaanitud. Eile käisime Kalevi kommivabrikus ise käsitöötrühvleid tegemas Lindexi tiimiga. Meile räägiti algul, et lapsed käivad seal hirmsasti läbustamas ja oma trühvlitee alla vaadates sain aru, et tegemist ongi tegelikult minuga hahah! Aga noh, see neiu rääkis seal, et alguses võivad nad nagu käkk välja näha taldrikul kuid ära kaunistades ja ilusasse karpi pannes näevad need välja nagu printsessitrühvlid ja nii oligi. Nüüdsest olen uhke trühvli-ekspert! Täna oli mul võimalus proovida järjekordset näohooldust ning seekord oli selleks Madara toodetega hooldus Natural Goods Company salongis. Tunnen end veel rohkem läikivama ja värskemana kui pärast spad! Nüüd hommmme teeme pisikese pildistamise Kristjaanaga ja otsime kikilipsu J'le ja õhtupoole hüppan läbi Kaubamajast, et lasta endale ilumaailmas soeng teha ja siis ongi aeg juba bastioni ja Goldtime'i moeshow'ks Hiltonis. Reedel on aga Denim DReam'iga armas lõuna Guess brändi seltsis ja siis siirdume J'ga kodulinna ära, kuna mul on vaja haarata kaasa paar peoasja pühapäevaseks jalgpalli galaks. Mul on tõesti väga hea nädal ja sellest ka nii hea tuju. Eriti meeldiv on see, et vihma asemel on tulnud ikkagi rohkem lund, mis tekitab korralikku jõulutunnet, mis muidugi omakorda teeb kõik veel rõõmsamaks! Kindlasti hoian kursis kõikide plaanide ja sündmustega teid ja nii palju talve outfit'e on aina tulemas! 

Palju head! x
