Window shopping's overrated, if I see it, I'ma take it


For a start I wanted to expose some of my newest goodies - fortunately bought mostly during sales.
From those four beauty products above I have so far used only Nivea Long Repair 1-minute treatment which in my opinion is quite efficient and at the same time totally affordable. Though, I did a little research and found out that in many countries the product is not available for some reason. Anyway, I've combined my 1-minute treatment together with Goldwell dualsenses Rich Repair shampoo and also with The Body Shop Ice Blue shampoo. Both combinations worked surprisingly well, and afterwards (i.e. after combing) I added La Coupe shine & smooth sleek serum. The outcome - shiny, smooth, glossy hair.

Now I'm thinking I should maybe try the shampoo and the conditioner of the same name, some day in the future of course. And if you are interested in any of those other three products, then let me know as well. By the way, I found this Johnson Parker crisp apple exfoliating body scrub from mydollarstore in Rakvere, sniffed it and fell in love.


Anyhow, the jewellery is from Seppälä (deer necklace - 3,13.- euros, and three pairs of wing shaped earrings - 2,68.- euros), the two gorgeous dresses are from New Yorker (the pink one - 6,95.- euros and the black and green one - 4,95.- euros, both were originally 24,95.- euros, so I saved 38.- euros) and the sweater with cute doggie print is from Reserved (9,99.- euros). Don't you just love the sales? I know I do!

Now, better late than never, so my outfit originates from the 31st of December when I and E. visited Rakvere. Since I loved the atmosphere and hazy surroundings, we simply had to capture it and I'm glad we did.


I was wearing: sweater - /thrifted/ 1.- euro; imitation leather skirt - Morgan de Toi /thrifted/ 1,60.- euros;  wedges - Pearlz; tights, earrings - unknown; watch - Hello Kitty /a gift from E/.

I would also like to thank you, my lovely followers and readers, for all the absolutely great and thoughtful comments and feedback. This means the world to me! And last but not least I hope you enjoy the photos, and always be sure to tell me your opinion :)

ps. Since several of you asked about my dream travel destination(s) for this year, I thought I'd answer it here. In fact I don't have the one and only dream destination but we (I) have considered Bulgaria, Great Britain, Germany, Greece (once again)... All in all we'll see about that when the right time comes.

You also asked about the delicious cake (with grated bread and biscuit btw) which I unfortunately didn't make. But my mom did, and I'm very curious to give it a try. Edit: I have the recipe now!

  10. Thanks so much for your kind words,and inspiration to keep motivated :D I can do it! :D
    Love the look of your new products,I have to say the scent of a product instantly sells it for me! Apples,the most amazing scent for creams and lotions.
    I wish I had an eye for the bargains like you,your garments are always gorgeous and so cheap! Wish I could shop like you :D I especially love that sweater,looks so vintage and special. The scenery is beautiful,wish we had snow here,even for a day,its so beautiful.
    Holidays! Definately stop by Great Britain :D it's great here,apart from the unpredictable weather!

  17. awwyy, nunnu kampsun, aga kas veidi külm polnud nii õues? :P Siin on hetkel ikka pallllju rohkem lund ka, vb on asi selles
    Oh, huvitavad reisisihtkohad kaa...oled sa neid kõiki juba varasemalt külastanud?

    1. ei olnud külm, kuna see kampsik on üpris "paks", ja niikuinii olid +kraadid ka. ma tavaliselt juhingi autot mantlita, sest nii on mugavam. no ja nende piltide tegemine võttis vähem kui 5 minutit ;)

      nendest kohtadest olen käinud vaid Kreekas, täpsemalt Kreeta saarel, kaks korda. armastan seda saart :) Bulgaariasse tahtsime elukaaslasega eelmisel sügisel minna, aga magasime maha õige aja ja siis oli sobiv lend juba välja müüdud. sel aastal võiks paremini minna :D

  38. Hey Maiken ( love your name by the way, does it mean anything? is it estonian?) i found your blog through a very comment of yours and i decided to give it a try and check it out and yeah as u can see you got yourself a new follower.
    i really like the beauty products you featured here i want to get myself some too to make my hair all shiny and beautiful.
    i also love your tights, love the pattern they have on.
    if you ever want to come to greece, just pm me and i'll tell you all about greece, i am from athens so i can help you about destinations, food etc.
    by the way i always wanted to visit estonia, it always seemed fascinating to me, i met a few estonians a few years ago and fell in love with your so different language, its a unique language at least to my ears and it sounds amazing, they told me i had to visit estonia since its beautiful, so i wonder where should i go? what should i eat? do i need to know a bit of estonian or can i walk around just by talking in english?
    ps if you find a few minutes to comment back please do so here:

  54. jaiks, ma olen nii kaugele jäänud blogindusest viimase nädala jooksul. kas blogger tõesti on lõpuks kätte võtnud ja reply-nupu leiutanud või on sul mingi asi installitud? see tundub küll päris mõnus olevat. need, mida siiani vaadanud olen, disqus vms, on veits tüütud - peab sisse logima jne. kuidas see töötab?
    alede koha pealt nõustun käte ja jalgadega - ma ei kujuta ette, kuidas ma oma kola kohvrisse ära mahutan :D suurema tõenäosusega muretsen kuskilt ühe kohvri juurde, niikuinii kuluvad ju reisides ära. eriti just kõik need suured rasked kolakad uute korralike vastu välja vahetada, mis ei kaalu iseenesest 5 kilo juba. kuigi - nad on mind mitu aastat hästi teeninud, nii et mul on veidi kurb neid vaikselt välja vahetada.. ühe juba vahetasin, aga teine on veel alles. nagu väike laps :D
    ja maple bearside koha pealt ma ütlesin Marttile ka neid ostes, et alguses tuleb tõenäoliselt sul see efekt, et ei raatsi avada üldse. mul endal on see kogu aeg probleemiks. aga jah, need peaksid tegelikult päris hästi maitsema. ma neid konkreetseid pole proovinud, aga ühed samast sarjast vist olid küll mõnusad (kuigi magususe tõttu mina üle ühe korraga süüa ei suuda). loodetavasti maitselt ka meeldivad teile mõlemale Erikuga :)

    1. kusjuures, ma just hakkasin uurima/proovima reply-nupu paigaldamist, kui blogger selle ise juba tekitas. totaalne kokkusattumus. aga ma ei tea, kas see, kelle kommentaarile vastata, ka mingi teate meilile saab..
      aga veab, et sul üldse kohvrid olemas on, mul näiteks polegi.. enam :D ei raatsi osta ka eriti. võib-olla leian midagi enam-vähem adekvaatset sealt külmast ruumist. ühe nahast old school kohvri leidsin juba :D õnneks on natuke aega tegeleda selle teemaga :) ja Erik saab nkn megasuure kohvri võtta, et mu shopinguid sinna mahutada :D
      ja maple bearsid on endiselt täitsa elus veel, oleme ainult pool pakki krõpse ära tarbinud :P
