A quick day trip to Tallinn


In my last post I promised to tell the news about my recent purchases from Tallinn. Everything I bought is from Stockmann or Kaubamaja and actually I didn't purchase much at all. Majority of the things was preplanned anyway so I'm even making progress following my own shopping rules fairly well.
Therefore, most of our time ticked away while we were making our moves at Stockmann, not only shopping but additionally munching on giant local pancakes. Yet I bought three very different things from Stockmann:
  • a nude pink Ted Baker two tone small bowler bag (129 76) which looks supremely adorable and as a bonus doesn't let me pile up irrelevant stuff (catalogues, magazines, newsletters, too many lipsticks and lipglosses... yeah, like I already said - irrelevant stuff).
  • "A home without a dog is just a house" sign (6,90) because I simply think that way and I'm starting to fancy all those witty signs overall. And I hope you all value your four-legged friends widely :)
  • Eleco mini sewing machine (39,90) since I have a decent pile of clothes waiting for little DIY projects. My sewing machine contains double thread, straight stitch and "Z" stitch, forward and reverse sewing, automatic thread rewind, adjustable stitch width and built-in sewing light. My first assignment was fixing a thrifted blouse and I did it! Now I really hope I will have enough time in my hands to complete all those DIY projects.

On a completely different note I purchased two new hair care products from LaCoupe's Brazilian Keratin Line and received additional two as a free gift. Brazilian Keratin Line is specifically designed for curly, wavy and frizz prone hair. It's infused with an exclusive complex of oils and keratin protein to give your hair a mega watt shine, keep it straighter longer, leave you with soft, smooth and touchable hair. Their shampoo and conditioner are sulfate and paraben free and I am beyond thrilled to put those two to the test!

My bonus products are LaCoupe Colour Rescue colour care shampoo and LaCoupe Colour Rescue colour quench conditioner from their Colour Rescue Line. Those tiny (in fact decent 60 ml) individuals are ideal for travelling which will hopefully and according to plan take place again next year. Have you tried something from LaCoupe hair care lines (firstly created in 1983)?

Bastion coat | thrifted scarf | Cubus stud earrings | Seppälä necklace | thrifted H&M crop sweater | Guess (under) sweater | thrifted belt | Cubus pants | Detox boots | Occhiblu (shopping) bag.

Like I said I didn't buy much but I'm very pleased with my findings and the shopping day in general. A quick meal (my Greek salad was delicious!) and we were prepared to confront the clearly overcrowded and rather slow train.
By the way, taking photos was not very simple since it was highly chilly outside but I still hope you like what we have managed to produce!

  6. i used to live so close to Tallin, it's such a shame that I've never visited it. But I hope to learn more about it through your posts;)
    You laways have the most amazing earring dear Maiken. Love the one you show us here.
    All the purchases are super nice, I especially like a board with a saying about a house without a dog (so true!)
    And thanks for sharing you ideas about the new hair products (I always like to find out new hair care products;)

  7. It looks like you had a great time in Tallinn, and I love what you wore while you were there, the combination of gray coat, red pants and black boots is just perfect! And I'm so envious of your little Ted Baker bag... I have a severe obsession with all things Ted Baker and keep hoping I'll wake up one day to find his whole collection in my closet :)

  11. Ted Bakeri kott näeb selline nunnu maasikavahune välja. mu enda kappi vist liialtigi (a teisalt, kes teab, eks), aga sellegi poolest super armas kellelgi teisel! koera koha pealt olen ma aastatega aru saanud, et nii on tõesti. ma olen spommi eksistentsiga praegu siin Tartus nii ära harjunud (ehk teisisõnu tema kombega mind hommikuti märja musiga äratada a'la võta koomale, ma tahan ka siia megakitsasse voodisse mahtuda!), et imelik saab jälle olema, kui teda enam siin pole. ja kui ma õigesti mäletan, siis ma vist ostsin kunagi kuskilt su emale ka mingi taolise sõnumiga asjanduse. ja praegu, kui mul on pärast pikka päeva tõesti meganälg ja õhtusöök alles pliidil häälitseb, tundub igasuguste söögipiltide vaatamine lihtsalt piin! ja seda ka, et viimasel pildil meenutad sa mulle jõule. see kõlab küll kuidagi imelikult :D aga sa oled kuidagi jõulune oma sillerduste ja punaste pükstega ja taust on ka selline tume, et mulle tekkis kuidagi hästi jõulune tunne :)

    1. see märg musi kõlas nii naljakalt, et ma lihtsalt naeran praegu :D aga koerad on jah omamoodi tegelased. nad kohe oskavad oma näoilmega või mõne naljaka liigutusega su tuju heaks teha, kui see peaks kehv olema parajasti. vahel ma lihtsalt naeran mõne Elduri näoilme peale või siis selle peale, kui ta nii äksi täis läheb, et kuskile otsa/vastu jookseb peaga :D
      aga jess, jõulud pole üldse paha olla, nii-et miks ka mitte siis? :D ja on tõesti sellised jõulutoonid, kuigi eks pimedas pildistamisel tuleb igasugune sädelus veel eriti esile. ema just meenutas telefonis, et kuu aja pärast peavad kõik kingitused ostetud olema.. scary :P

      Delete
    2. minu arvates ka, jõulud on ainult hea olla! :) see jõuluärevus on nii mõnus, mis juba sees on. ja vaikselt tulevad jõulukaunistused välja... järgmisel nädalal ma end küll enam tagasi vist ei suuda hoida jõulukaunistuste puhul. ütlesin endale, et kui betikad läbi on, siis on nagu sügis lõpetatud ja jõulukaunistused võib välja võtta, aga enne päris ikka mitte. pealegi, pärast kolmekuningapäeva niigi peaks need justkui ära võtma (kuigi ma seda tavaliselt ei tee, aga ikkagi), siis olekski see detsembrikuu nagu liiga lühike aeg igast toredate jõulutulede ja asjanduste jaoks.

      Delete
    3. no jõuluärevust mul vist ei ole, aga mingil arusaamatul põhjusel on kinkide ostmise "paanika" ehk siis ikka ja jälle leian end sellele mõtlemast. ja ega seegi eriti aita, et järgmisel nädalal hakkabki juba detsember pihta, mis tähendab, et tulevad ka jõulukaunistused.. see on lihtsalt ebareaalne, kui kiiresti aeg liigub! ja ma siiralt loodan, et olen võimeline veel SEL aastal oma garderoobi lõpuni korda tegema!! :D

  42. Wow. Your posts always include so much great stuff I have no idea where to start. Firstly, the food looks so good.
    I love all your pictures as always but the last macro one of the berry? it's really amazing. I can imagine it as wall art.
    Love all the colours in your outfit. I have been wearing similar ones recently. I have a love for oxblood and petrol blue! They team well together.

    Great post :) Hope you're well!
