66 - Sanus Per Aqua - day 2, 29th of August


Our second day in Pärnu, Viiking Spa Hotel started off super early (around 6 o'clock) because we headed to the sauna centre to enjoy a decent morning swim and afterwards relax in the jacuzzi.
After breakfast we both had two treatments. Mine were romantic rose bath treatment with bath muffin and manual massage for 40 minutes. I must say that Jelena, my masseur, was the best female masseur I have ever met! That massage was truly heavenly. At the same time Erik's treatments were health capsule and massage chair.

So, after our treatments we walked to the Old Town to do some shopping (I was waiting for that so tensely!). I bought a Morgan de Toi imitation leather skirt (from a second hand store but it even has the original price tag on, so it's new and cost only 1,60.- euros), Diesel leather belt (was on sale and cost only 17.- euros), a military bra from New Yorker (was also on sale), L'Oréal Paris Double Extension Beauty Tubes mascara (surprise-surprise, it was on sale, haha; also read my review in the end of the post!!) and a vintage handbag made in Norway (got it from a second hand store for only 1,20.- euros).

In addition to shopping we had lunch at Frens Café and everything there was utterly delicious (I miss that place and it's such a shame Frens Café is situated only in Pärnu).
Well, our evening included a lovely dinner in the buffet-restaurant of our hotel and later a proper stroll to see the sea. Since the weather was extremely windy and even slightly stormy, we rushed back between the houses in a little while.
That lovely day ended with champagne, Lay's Oven Baked chips and delicious grapes from our own garden.

I was wearing (during the day): cardigan - Halens; top - Planet (second hand); pants - Lindex (second hand); shoes - Tamaris; handbag - Guess; sunglasses - Prada; necklace - O'Neill.
my purchases
I was wearing (in the evening): denim shirt - Halens; top - Guess; jeans - Crocker (second hand); leather shoes - from my grandmother; clutch - Clinique; sunglasses - Prada.

L'Oréal Paris Double Extension Beauty Tubes mascara review
L'Oréal promises this new lash extension effect mascara visibly lengthens your lashes up to an astonishing 80%.
Step 1: Ultra nourishing base coat infused with Ceramide R and D-Panthenol protects and strengthens lashes creating the perfect base for tube application.
Step 2: Ultra-lengthening tube top coat sets to form lash-extending beauty tubes that visibly lengthen lashes to amazing new heights. Beauty tubes will not run, clump, flake or smudge and will stay on all-day.
Step 3: Beauty tubes remove easily with just warm water - no makeup remover or rubbing required!
It's fragrance-free, ophthalmologist and allergy tested, also suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.


I'm not thrilled about my Double Extension Beauty Tubes mascara but still it's quite good. When it comes to following steps 1 and 2, you have to be utterly quick because otherwise the base coat dries and then it's hard to apply the top coat. Also I can't agree to the fact that removing the mascara needs no rubbing because it does need at least some light rubbing but that's actually okay. On the positive side Double Extension Beauty Tubes mascara really doesn't smudge and it lengthens my lashes evidently.

Anyway, I think both brushes are a bit massive for such tiny tubes and probably (never say never!) I will not buy that mascara again in the future.. even though I got it for only approximately 10.- euros since it was on sale. But the fact it comes off with just warm water is still pretty valid!

  3. Ohh, tahaks kaa massaaži :P see on vist kõige mõnusam asi üldse maailmas, parem isegi kui šokolaad :P
    Wauu, see sinine jakk mis sul siin mere ääres tehtud piltidel seljas on on nagu supeer, selline natuke 90ndad :P

  5. Vabsee, Su teine P2rnu-p2ev k6lab 'heavenly.' Unistan siuksest p2evast, aint et 2rgata nii vara ei tahaks :-D

    See Sinu uus pruun kott on v2ga v2ga ilus. Maksis 1,20 euri? What? Ma peaks sagedamini second hand poode kylastama. Kusjuures, ma olen Londonis vaid KAHES k2inud ja ei ostnud mitte midagi :-/

    See 6htune outfit Sul ka h2sti kokku pandud - I like how Sa oled kinni n88pinud vaid ylemise osa :-)

    Ja seda L'Oreali ripsmekat olen isegi kasutanud. Mulle kahe otsaga ripsmekad eriti ei meeldi - ei viitsi j2nnata :-/, aga oli suht okei. Pikendas ja tihendas, aga vot miskip2rast ma ei ole suurim L'Oreali f2nn. Ykski nende toode pole tekitanud siukest vau-efekti.

    xoxo

  8. ahh Pärnu on ikka nii maailma mõnus ja nii kahju, et ma sinna sel suvel ei jõudnudki :(
    kotipoiss on täitsa kena ju! rihm on ka?
    seelikut vaadates ma hakkasin mõtlema, et kuidas sa pesed seda enne kandmist? viid keemilisse või lükkad naha lihtsalt masinasse? kui masinasse lükata, siis koledaks ei tee see vees ligunemine seda? ma lihtsalt hakkasin mõtlema, et pole ise vist kaltsukast nahast riideeset ostnudki, et ei teagi, kuidas seda puhastaksin enne kandmist. puhtalt lapiga hõõrumine ja niisutamine ei tundu eriti kasu andvat, et ma pärast seda selga ka panna tahaksin. päris põnev :D

  13. LA STYLE MUSE - yeah, it's alright now :)

    Sabrina - thank you! and I also love the pink dress.. it caught my eye right away :P

    Usagi-Chan - ma olen absoluutselt sama meelt, et massaaž on parem kui šokolaad! ja aitäh ka! muide, Halensist leiab igasugust vinget kraami vahepeal ;)
    ning jaa, meil kasvavad aias tõesti viinamarjad.. tegelikult ka kiivid :P

    Maria - thank you :)

    Miss A - mida varem ärkad, seda rohkem tehtud jõuad ;)
    ja mulle ka kott väga meeldib :) muide, kas Londoni sekkarites disainerikraami ka leidub? st kas oled märganud kunagi? :P

    ripsmekast rääkida, siis ostsin selle veega eemaldumise tõttu, aga vaimustuses kindlasti ei ole. nagu Sa just ütlesid, see on okei ripsmekas. (muide, müüja ei teadnud, et tegemist on base coat'i ja top coat'iga, vaid väitis, et see valge on lihtsalt mingi öine ravitušš, haha :D)

  14. Sam - I'm glad you like the photos :)

    Marcela - thank you :)

    Norah - mulle ka Pärnu istub. ja kotil on väga mugav õlarihm.. ülirahul olen :)

    mul on kaks kunstnahast seelikut, seega oskan vaid kunstnaha eest midagi rääkida :P keemilisse puhastusse neid viia ei või, trummelkuivatis kuivatada ka mitte. aga pesumasinas võib pesta (soovitavalt 30 kraadi juures, aga vaevalt 40 midagi hullu teeb). ma ei kujuta ette, kas nahaga on sama lugu või mitte..

    Ask Erena - thank you :) and oh yeah, that salad was yummy and I want it now!! :P

    Sara - actually it was the sunrise ;) and I'm glad you needed that review :)
    thanks for your comment too :)

    Jen - thank you!

    Natalie - I thought so (about your skirt) ;) and yes, that salad was so good!! :P

  22. Hmm, disainerikraami on kyll, jah :P
    Londoni idaosas, East Endis (Brick Lane jne) on paar sekkarit, mis on v2ga 2gedad. Mul paar tuttavat shoppavad seal ja on ostnud Chaneli ja Versace tooteid sealt (Chaneli puhul oli tegu kotiga). Aga nad pole just nii v2ga odavad. On second hand poed, aga hinnad on siuksed, noh.. A la maksad 50-60 naela mingi kleidi eest (mille originaalhind oleks v6ib-olla u. 200-300 naela).
    Ma sellep2rast pigem shoppan high streetil. Dorothy Perkins, Miss Selfridge, New Look, River Island jne :-)

  41. Miss A - lucky you anyway ;) Eestis ju polegi eriti kuskil shopata.. sekkarid on vähemalt selles mõttes kindla peale väljaminek, et enamasti on sealsed leiud unikaalsed :) kahju ainult, et numbrivalikut pole..

    Saleem - thank you, ladies :)

    Rowan - thank you too :)

    Bree - you're welcome ;)
    and yeah, that vacation truly was so good and relaxing :) I already miss everything I described here..

    Pop Champagne - I know what you mean.. it's truly difficult to find an awesome masseur who really knows what he or she is doing :)

    Mary Jo - actually I've had only positive experiences with spas in my country :) probably I've been lucky so far :P

    Anon. - kuna ma olen oma elu jooksul Pärnus vaid paar korda korralikult käinud, siis üritan kuidagi (kindlasti puudulikult) seletada :P
    mõlemad sekkarid asuvad vanalinnas. seelik pärineb ühest sellisest, kus samas trepikojas saab tätokaid teha, aga sekkar on salongist äkki korrus allpool ja uksel oli silt, et see pannakse varsti lõplikult kinni..
    koti leidsin aga ühest nii-öelda kirikuabi poest, mis asus kuskil sisehoovis..
    ma ei tea, kas sellest nüüd mingit kasu oli, aga ma kahjuks tõesti täpsemalt ei oska :)
