77 - new in goodies

For a change I would like to show you what's new in my cosmetics' department. I received those two beauties on the 22nd of October, so haven't used them for a very long time yet. Nevertheless I'm in love with both of them! Please do enjoy:

* Guess by Marciano
This excellent floral fruity perfume (EDP, 50 ml) for women by Guess was presented already in 2007 and the nose behind this fragrance is Barbara Zoebelein.
Top notes include star fruit, Curacao orange liquor, sparkling grapefruit and cardamom. Middle notes are floral and include peony, pink honeysuckle and jasmine. Base notes are sensual vanilla, musk and woody accords.
When I ordered the perfume, I rested purely on some random reviews found from the world wide web environment, so I definitely had enough blind luck. I do use my Guess by Marciano every day when I leave the house.

* Rouge Dior N. 565 (Diorlywood Pink) lip colour by Christian Dior
Rouge Dior is a wardrobe of 32 sublime shades directly inspired by the deep, luxurious colours of Dior Haute Couture, gowns to reveal all the beauty of triumphant and radiant femininity. A new generation of plumping hyaluronic acid microspheres help boost the radiance and depth of colour while generously coated with pigments on the lip surface.

When I saw that temptingly gorgeous colour and it was also on sale (only 13,95.- euros), I simply knew what I had to do. Well, obviously I purchased it for myself. I have used it again and again and really love my first lip colour by Christian Dior. According to dior.com this exceptional lipstick offers the lips the extreme splendor of full, smooth and perfectly defined youthfulness, and I certainly do agree! I can see it's on even after my lunch break and this is an eloquent fact.


ps. Yesterday I received my first and at the same time the most adorable bag from an Italian company called occhiblu but haven't taken any photos yet, so you're going to see it some other time.. Anyhow, I absolutely love it!

76 - oh, this has gotta be the good life


Better late than never, so here comes a brief story about our trip to the European Capital of Culture 2011 (for your information, it's Tallinn) on the 15th of October.
We went by train which finally gave me an opportunity to read through the whole Teen Vogue's September 2011 issue (Emma Stone graces the cover by the way). And that means I can eventually get myself a new magazine, so great success! Anyhow, now about our very reserved shopping: first of all we visited Stockmann's Crazy Days event which was resulting only for Erik whose shopping ended with some good bargains.

I guess maybe I was too selective (which actually is a beneficial thing in my opinion) but I only got the blue (or purple.. I really can't tell but I'll show you soon) Helen sweater from Guess (to be specific, it's a stretch viscose sweater with V neckline and with sequined Guess logo customisation along the neckline). It randomly came into my mind that I was actually looking for a new sweater anyway, so lucky me.

On a completely different note we finally checked out the Monument to the War of Independence and unfortunately it was rather disappointing... well, I'm not a huge fan of Tallinn anyway, so case closed.
At least we got to eat some really good food: for example the basil pasta with olive oil, smoked chicken and parmesan in Amps Aura Café was simply delicious and Erik also loved his creamy seafood pasta.
Therefore I hope you do enjoy the very gloomy photos and be sure to tell me what you think!

I was wearing: imitation fur coat - Reflex (thrifted); silk scarf - thrifted; jeans - Crocker (thrifted); belt - unknown; wedges - Pearlz; red jacket - thrifted; black lace blouse - thrifted; bag - Valentino.

75 - I tried to pay attention but attention paid me

I thought that before writing the in any case behind time post about our speedy trip to Tallinn I should probably show you some early-autumn photos (obviously) made by me. All photos are taken on the 2nd of October. And I simply have to tell you about some gripping future events!

On the 27th of October I will finally get a new manicure (I haven't done my nails by myself for long years because I have a really cool manicurist) and on the 28th of October I'll visit a hair stylist (already for the second time this year which is a miracle, but no cutting this time since I'm quite happy with the existing length).
On the 2nd of November I'm going to meet my new dentist about my undergoing therapy and actually I'm surprisingly happy even about that (although when I was a child I hated all dentists!!).
And on the 4th of November I will probably start doing some additional studying in the University of Tartu (it's about laboratory work and will continue in December). I'm already looking forward to everything and hope you are also having the most exciting time. Finally, enjoy the photos and be sure to tell me what you think!

74 - get back A.S.A.P.

On the 8th of October I and E. headed to Tartu.. once again, but of course we had several adequate reasons for that action. For example many building supply stores were arranging sales' campaigns and randomly we happened to be in great need of floor edgings, several carpets, a shower curtain, regular and scented candles and so on. Luckily we were quite successful and managed to find almost everything with surprisingly customer friendly prices.
By the way, the reparation of our huge hallway and tiny restroom is already getting closer to the end and that is simply delightful!

On a completely different note my outfit photos were taken by E. in Raadi manor park which is one of the most outstanding examples of park design in the history of Estonian manor parks. Raadi park is located in the north-east part of Tartu, at the south-east edge of Raadi Lake. The lower "freeformed" dendropark which is well-kept and rich in species, and the regular part of the upper park between Raadi Lake and the dendropark are under protection.
ps. In addition I found a past post where you can see photos which are also taken there, but some years ago.
Anyway, I hope you like the photos and be sure to tell me what you think!


I was wearing: lace bodysuit - Amisu; crop top - Halens; blue jeans - Levi's (thrifted); belt - Diesel; studded  jacket - Amisu; boots - Gebok; bracelet - from a local supermarket; watch - D&G.

And since some of you wanted me to make a post about my tidy wardrobe, I'm actually planning to do it as soon as possible (but I simply need sunshine to take the photos!). By the way, after cleaning the wardrobe I donated huge heaps of my clothes, shoes, bags, belts and other accessories to our local social care. In my opinion it is way better than selling the clothes.

73 - 8 things about me

Some time ago I found this tiny but interesting questionary from another blog and decided to answer these eight questions for sure. So, here come my honest answers:
1. Current location: Jõgeva town, Estonia;
2. Day job: project manager (specialized in the Cohesion Fund projects);
3. Dream job: right now I actually love what I do but who knows what the future brings... anyhow, I always do what I want to do!
4. Style icon: I honestly trust myself the most!
5. Favourite clothing company: can't name only one but I do love Guess, also vintage and thrifted clothes from random companies. When it comes to thrifting, the name of the company really doesn't matter!
6. Favourite TV show: The Vampire Diaries, America's Next Top Model, Pretty Little Liars, Jersey Shore, My Kitchen Rules, The Walking Dead - truly love them all!
7. Favourite way to procrastinate: browsing through my long blog list or watching some random (and usually pointless) TV show(s);
8. Something on your bucket list: traveling as much as possible and probably getting myself a brand-new and crazy expensive camera.

Enjoy and feel free to also answer these eight questions and when you do, most definitely leave me a link with your answers (of course you can write your answers here in the comments' box too) because I love reading such things from others.

ps. My outfit originates from the 1st of October which was a historical day: I and Elery absolutely cleaned my whole wardrobe and Erik was so shocked that he even bought a bottle of champagne to celebrate this exciting event, haha! By the way, I can show you the photos of my wardrobe if you want me to!

I was wearing: blouse - thrifted; pants - Lindex (thrifted); leopard boots - Ángel Alarcón; sunglasses - Seppälä; scarf - Guess.

72 - new in beauty products and accessories

I promised to show you my new (...or actually not so new anymore) beauty products and finally, here they come:
1. Oriflame Milk & Honey Gold shampoo and conditioner for shiny & nourished hair
I must admit I was shocked after using those two Milk & Honey Gold products for the first time. But fortunately it was a positive shock in every way! Milk & Honey Gold shampoo and conditioner contain nourishing milk protein and moisturizing honey extract which both are organic ingredients.
The shampoo lathers very well and after using the conditioner as well I don't have to apply any hair mask or leave-in conditioner and this truly is a genuine miracle when it comes to me and my long wavy hair. Those two Milk & Honey Gold products from Oriflame clean and nourish my hair, leaving it all healthy and shiny. I simply love those two and besides each was only 3,19€.


2. Escada S Precious body moisturizer
I have used that only once, so it's far too early to decide about the product but the scent of it is absolutely fresh and luxurious. Oh, and the texture seemed to be really gentle and light, so this is definitely a promising beginning!


3. Scooby-Doo! liquid soap with bubblegum flavour
As you can see, my taste is quite versatile and I bought that liquid soap from a local supermarket because sometimes I adore childish and really yummy scents. Since I just got it I haven't gotten a chance to use it yet but as I already mentioned before the smell is like a bubblegum dream! (sidenote: I don't eat bubblegum, chewing gum nor other similar things)


4. Clinique High Impact mascara
This is my all-time favourite mascara in the whole wide world and I wouldn't trade it for any other mascara (although once I've tried since my favourite is pointlessly overpriced in Estonia). Anyway, High Impact mascara kicks up the volume and length of each and every lash for a look that's lusher, plusher, bolder. Pure, deep colour only adds to the impact. Wear it once and you'll feel naked without it! - this is so true!

It's volumizing and thickening and now about the most important thing: High Impact mascara comes off with just warm water, actually it even runs off so lightly and leaves absolutely no smudges on your face. I'm a girl who doesn't use make up remover, so this is crucial.
Oh well, Clinique High Impact mascara is my perfect match and finally I found an awesome website where I can buy it for less than 20(it usually costs at least 30 in Estonian beauty stores!!).


Last but not least you can see some of my new jewellery which cost 0,75 each in my local supermarket and the two golden Milk & Honey hair claws I got together with the shampoo and the conditioner.
I really do hope you found this post at least slightly useful for yourself and actually I even have a new outfit waiting for being published here! ;)
