I'm also posting rather old (from the end of February) photos of my latest Oriflame haul. I got:
* Milk & Honey Gold Shampoo and Milk & Honey Gold Conditioner - my review about those two is located here. By the way, I repurchase only the best products, so this was a direct hint ;)
* Pure Colour Floral Nail Polish in Cherry Red - I haven't tried this yet but it's for my toenails;
* My very first apron in perfect colour;
* Alexa Earrings - love those;
* Triple Core Lipstick Trend Edition in Coral Trend - inspired by wild flowers in nature and graphic petals on the catwalk alike, the limited edition of unique Triple Core Lipstick embraces spring trends with 5 new bold shades, each encased in an exclusively created floral design.
I haven't used it very often but I love the stylish package and the Coral Trend shade as well. In my opinion the lipstick could be slightly more moisturizing though. I guess we'll see what kind of relationship this precisely will be. By the way, I was wearing my Triple Core Lipstick Trend Edition and Alexa Earrings in the latest outfit post and I'm adding a photo here as well.
* Very Me Heartbreaker Eye Pencil in Turquoise Rocks - pencil in three gorgeous shades and packaging with attitude. Perfect for your inner and outer lash lines. It's too soon to say anything reliable about this since I've tryed it only twice but I do love the fierce colour.
How do I get a stomach like that?
I guess the correct answer is "crunch exercises" which are the most common abdominal exercises to tone your rectus abdominis muscle.
My so called training programme also contains a running machine, an elliptical trainer and exercises with dumbbells. When I don't feel like working out inside the house I'll take a long walk together with my mother and Elvis or with only one of them (+crunch exercises afterwards). Mostly in summer I roller-skate and run as well.
The most important thing is I work out when I want to, not because I have to! And I'm happy with my toned body and strength. I also enjoy manual work. By the way, I love good food as well!
Where do you find so affordable pieces?
I find affordable pieces from everywhere I shop, i.e. from completely random stores, online, outlets, shopping centres, thrift stores and so on. I have set rather strong borderlines and don't spend my money mindlessly. For example by rule of thumb I don't purchase full priced clothes from Lindex, New Yorker, Seppälä... it's just pointless in my opinion. Majority of my clothes are thrifted and from time to time I reward myself with something expensive and high-quality, something from Guess for an example. (Seasonal) discounts and thrift stores are my favourites though.
Would like to know more about where you live.
Jõgeva is a small town in Estonia, with a population of around 6000 people. It is the administrative centre of Jõgeva County and it's situated on the right shore of Pedja River which flows through the city from north to south. Parallel with the river is the Tallinn-Tartu railway line.
History. Jõgeva became a town in 1938 but during the Second World War nearly 60% of the town was destroyed. During the Soviet occupation in Estonia Jõgeva became an important administrative centre with several big industries. Many new administrative, commercial and residential buildings were erected at that time.
Interesting facts. Jõgeva is also known as the coldest place in Estonia with the lowest temperature of -43,5°C.
Jõgevatreff, an annual bikers reunion, takes place in July and the culmination of the event is the parade of the bikers through the town. In August, the annual Garlic Festival is held. Jõgeva is also regarded as the head quarters of the Estonian Santa Claus.
Jõgeva is twinned with Kaarina and Keuruu in Finland and Karlstad in Sweden.
What does a project manager do?
I wrote about my job here but one of the most important obligations is the lead-through of public procurements and all other types of procurements. Also putting together procurement plans and dealing with payments and accounting. I have to participate in various meetings as well. Honestly it is impossible to list everything I have to do.
What kind of camera do you use?
I use Olympus E-520 for my photos.
What's the craziest thing you ever done? Or would like to do?
I guess the craziest thing was getting my first tattoo in 2006 and also flying to Crete island for the first time in 2009 although I promised not to fly anywhere in my whole life (because the plane could fall down, you know).
Name a designer/brand you would never ever wear and why?
There is no such designer/brand I would never ever wear. Never say never... for an example look what happened with my promise not to fly even once in my whole life!
What's your guilty pleasure?
My guilty pleasures are all things gorgeous, delicious food, photography, pleasurable workout, road trips, strawberries, sun, thrifting, travelling...
Who are your inspirations of blogging?
My inspirations of blogging are almost everybody whose blog I'm reading and enjoying. No-one specific.
What are your pet peeves?
My pet peeves are babblers, lack of education and annoying people.
A place where you would live if you had the opportunity to?
I honestly can't name such place right now because my home is here in Jõgeva, I have a car and the opportunities to travel and drive wherever I want to. I have lived elsewhere but it didn't actually work for me and I didn't enjoy the apartment life. It's just not meant for me.
Which products do you use to keep your hair in such a perfect condition?
I photographed the products I use to keep my hair in such condition. Don't know how perfect the condition is but mostly I'm quite happy with it.
So, I have two sets of products for washing my hair: one for the sauna and the other for using in the shower. The third photo stands for the products I use after washing my hair. I don't use hair-driers!! By the way, I comb my hair only after washing them, i.e. usually after every two days and while it's still moist.
I don't have a certain favourite fashion decade, I don't follow trends and I wear absolutely everything I want to, whenever I want to. I'm sure every decade has something interesting and timeless to offer.
What is The Lying Game like?
You can read about The Lying Game here. Unfortunately the first season ended and ABC Family hasn't announced anything specific about starting the second one. I really wish there will be a second season as well. You should definitely give The Lying Game a try because it's enchanting!
