83 - 8 days of Christmas

Happy December, everyone!
This post is essentially about last weekend and First Sunday of Advent. We decorated our house mainly on Saturday and you can see some shiny fragments from the photos below. Elvis is also there, giving you his bow wow holiday greetings. 
Unfortunately I and E. haven't cooked gingerbreads yet but we will for sure, we even have the dough and the frosting already waiting for us! (edit: we used half of the dough but ran out of gingerbreads before making any photos)

On last Saturday I also visited Estonia's fifth largest city Rakvere and got some new goodies: black Nessy Knit Pants (fleece leggings with ergonomic stitches) from Guess, Unity Beanie from Hilfiger Denim and two cute wardrobe boxes with beautiful butterfly print. I hope I will be able to show you an outfit with those newcomers soon (actually I have worn the items for almost the whole week but have not had time for any photoshoots yet). Anyway, those Guess pants are the most comfortable ones I have ever owned!


And I have some more lovely news in addition: I won a give-away in Anastasia's blog Natbee's fashion and lifestyle and the award was a promotional advertising button of my blog in the lefthand sidebar of her great blog. The ad will be placed there until the end of December and you can check it out from here. At the same time it was the first time when I won something from a blog give-away, so thanks, Anastasia!
Oh, and below you can also see what I wore when I visited Rakvere on Saturday.


I was wearing: dress - H&M Young, /thrifted/; long vest - /thrifted/; boots - Gebok; brooch - unknown... possibly /thrifted/; watch - D&G; earrings - a gift from my grandparents.

    I love your x-mas decorations as well. So much fun!

    P.S. I'm glad you liked my birthday wishlist and thanks for the suggestion. I will try to do that haha. You should go watch 'Sleeping Beauty' and tell me if it's good!

  22. thanks so much, ladies, for all your nice comments :)

    Bree - I think you're going to see Sleeping Beauty before me, hehe, and then I can read about it from your blog :P at least I hope so :D

    Hebe - Elvist on nii raske pildile saada.. ta hakkab kohe kaamera suunas liikuma ja virvendab kõik pildid ära :D

    Usagi-Chan - suur aitäh :) aga ei olnud külm minu mäletamist mööda, kuigi Rakveres oli mul muidugi jakk kaasas :D lihtsalt autoga käies ei taha poodidesse minekuks väga soojalt riidesse panna, muidu pärast poes jube palav :P

    Professor B - thank you too, sweetiepie! that's so nice of you :)

  35. Maikeni,

    You always look so stylish. I am in love with this outfit. I was looking forward to you baking the gingerbread cookies and posting them and then I read the small print that you ran out of dough lol.

    I hope you are having a great day pretty girl.
