Deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder where it's so white as snow

I would like to say Happy December to all my dear followers and other readers too!
Estonia is coated with a whole lot of snow which, as always, showed up out of the blue. I like slightly snowy Christmas but I don't enjoy icy weather, annoying slipperiness, getting rid of the snow around our house and from top of my Saab.

My outfit photos, on the other hand, originate from the ancient 17th of November when I and E. went to the cinema in Tartu and ...
surprise surprise!
saw The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 about what you can read from my previous blog post here if you haven't got the chance yet. Additionally I took part in a Facebook competition and won an extra cool set of Breaking Dawn - Part 2 earrings and bracelets. I will show those when I have them in my arms at some time.

thrifted Master-Coat coat | Ted Baker bag | Detox boots | thrifted scarf | thrifted Dorothy Perkins blazer | Lindex children's tee | thrifted H&M skirt | random leopard tights | Seppälä necklace | Monton earrings | two thrifted bracelets below and one random bracelet above.

Anyhow, Tartu also involved lightsome shopping and I purchased a few cute things including one very lovely top (19,95 €9,99) from Reserved. And not just very lovely but it has beautiful orchid blossoms all over the front side! Some of you may already know about my boundless love for orchids which is why I didn't even care about the fact it was size M since it's quite loose anyway. It simply was love at first sight! I also found those Heart 2 Heart butter bath fizzers (0,90) that I use on my feet because we don't own a bathtub yet.


In other news life lately has included another trip to Tallinn where I and my current boss participated in an information day about water economics that took place at the four-star Tallink Spa & Conference Hotel. I already told my fiancé we should use that luxurious hotel one day in the future because when I saw their Aqua Spa I instantly fell in love with its innovative design!

But before I call it a day I want to share a few snapshots taken in our just about finished grand dining and living room. You will probably see the entire room after Christmas because on Christmas Eve my parents, grandparents, brother and his girlfriend will celebrate holidays at our place and photos of a Christmassy room are definitely more pleasing to the eye. Besides, here and now we still have plenty of setting to do. Therefore I hope you enjoy the photos and always let me know what you think :)


ps. I got myself a SpongeBob SquarePants advent calendar! I love having those tiny special chocs in the morning and I honestly believe a person can't be too old for a sweet tradition like this. Do you agree?

  2. How fun that you wore that t-shirt, I love the idea of dressing according to the movie!
    Thank you for your kind comments on my blog! I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the story! 200 candles sounds wonderful! Thank you for the website hint, I'll try to read it as soon as I have enough time!
    Concerning your comment on my blog, I still try to send at least 10 Christmas cards, there is just nothing like it! I know how much I myself enjoy getting them so that is why I continue to send them!

  8. maiken, congrats on winning the bracelet and earrings! i like the colors of your outfit: in your printed t, the scarf, the stacked bracelets, necklaces, nails, and your lovely earrings. the fit of your skirt is so cute too. i want your boots, and i adore that blouse hanging on the white wall and bricks. the orchid blouse is perfect for you, orchid queen. i smiled when i read you got a spongebob advent calendar. :) i'm sure you'll go to that aqua spa someday soon.

  19. Yeah, I think ice is my least favorite part of winter, it makes driving so awful. :P
    I think this is the most stylish way to wear a Twilight shirt ever! I love how you paired it with the scarf and blazer, it actually took me a moment to even realize that there was an Edward/Bella picture on your tee!

  21. I've not got an advent calendar yet (and I probably won't now December has started), but a spongebob squarepants one sounds so cool! :) It's icy here now and I almost don't want to go out of the house in the mornings! I love your coat, it's such a classic style :) xx

  27. I love seeing your Ted Baker handbag out in action, and I love the pairing of that pretty silk scarf with a Twilight t-shirt ;) I definitely don't think anyone is ever too old for an advent calendar. I was a little late this year, but I bought one for me and one for my husband yesterday - I have to admit, it was a little fun getting to enjoy four of the chocoaltes on one day!
