You want me down on earth but I am up in space

Hey! I have a lot of catching up to do but luckily my two week long vacation will begin tomorrow, after the working day is through, yay! By the way, dear sunny and warm Estonian summer, I need you during my holidays, so please keep that in mind!


I was wearing: knot shirt - Hilfiger Denim; floral shorts - M.O.S /thrifted/; wedges - Adelante /thrifted/; sunnies - Emporio Armani; earrings - Oasap; bracelets - various...

Anyhow, my photos originate from the 7th of July that I and E. spent in Tartu. E. had to work (on Saturday, yeah) which meant I actually was in possession of a real justification for (sale) shopping and I even happened to be in great need of several goods. Therefore I'm going to divide my purchases into two shares: I The things I was really searching for and II The goodies that randomly got in my way.

I
1. The Body Shop rounded handle facial brush, 1,40.- euros;

2. The Body Shop carrot moisture cream, 50 ml, 8.50.- euros 5.- euros. Contains carrot oil and almond oil which should enliven and take care of your skin. It was originally created in 1980 and now it's back with Community Trade beeswax from organic sources. The cream is for all skin types and I mainly bought it because I had run out of my previous carrot cream from Green Nature.

Anyway, I haven't used it for a very long time yet but my first impression tells TBS cream has a slightly heavier structure and my skin doesn't absorb it as quickly as it did when it came to my Green Nature carrot cream. Everything else seems to be all right so far but I guess our Estonian Green Nature cream simply suits me better and I do have their apricot cream waiting for me;

3. Ziaja tintin face gel scrub, 80 ml, 3,40.- euros in their online store. Gentle exfoliating gel scrub for face care. Delicately peels off and removes dead skin cells. Purifies the pores from excessive oil. Smoothes the skin and restores its healthy and radiant look.

I haven't tried it yet but I do use tintin toner daily and it suits me, which is why I now purchased the face gel scrub. I'll give it a go with a little help from my TBS facial brush when I have my vacation;

4. Miss Cop Vernis pop nails vernis a ongles nail polish N°06, 12 ml, 1,80.- euros. Finally I got myself a mint coloured nail polish and now only have to do my pedicure, using this pretty shade;

5. Silva ex1 Plus Pedometer, 27,42.- euros 16,45.- euros. It's such an amazing little device and I have already used it while walking with Elvis or with my mom and also when I and E. visited our capital town Tallinn on the 14th of July which was a pretty crazy shopping day. By the way, if any of you didn't know, it counts each step a person takes by detecting the motion of the person's hips. Do you own/use a pedometer?


II
1. Mastrad silicone muffin pan for small moist hearts and big melting hearts, 14,40.- euros 6,68.- euros. I will certainly give it a go during my holidays. Some mini sponge cakes with fresh berries would be perfect!;

2. Thrifted Endy Karan hooded vest, 2,10.- euros. Probably my first hooded vest ever.

All in all: 5 preplanned items against 2 "accidental" items. A job well done, right? Besides, I must thank you all for the wonderful comments! I appreciate it a lot and once again hope you enjoy the sunny photos (yeah, we used to have summer here in Estonia several weeks ago). And guys, let me know what you think because I always love hearing from you!

  32. jälle ma nii aeglane oma blogi lugemistega... igatahes see küünelakk nüüd meneutas mulle, et ma muretsesin endale ka viimati topshopist mündirohelise küünelaki, aga pole sellega veel midagi ette võtnud. praegu oleks just õige aeg.
    sammulugejat olen ma juba aastaid kasutanud, nii et minu muljeid sa ilmselt tead niigi. nüüd olen ma väga vaimustuses, et omale lõpuks vastavad nike+ tossud muretsesin, mis ipodiga koostööd teevad, nii et nüüd on väga põnev, kui lance armstrong või keegi minuga vahel juttu räägib :D ehk teisisõnu - super asjandus!
