The awkward moment when Santa accidentally leaves the price tag on your present - Eddy Sims

Long time no see. Once again life has been immeasurably intense and on top of that I have had no inspiration/motivation whatsoever to work on a decent blog post. Nevertheless I pulled myself together because eventually a girl (and at this point I mean me, myself and I) has to blog again, right? So this is a miscellaneous publication about one and a half outfits, my order from sweet Estonian online store müüü (www.muuu.ee) and simply a few wintry life lately snapshots.


First of all, müüü is an online store where practically everything costs 9.99 and number 9 equals "üheksa" in Estonian language wherefrom derives this "triple ü". I have to recognize it's a very smart and memorable name choice. Their service is faultless and warm-hearted - something you don't meet every day in Estonian (e-)commerce.

My order included a few Christmas presents besides "highly needed" gifts for myself ;) Naturally I can't display the Christmas presents here but my own goodies are parrot shaped earrings and lizard ear cuff made by talented Jane Meriloo, a vintage style statement ring and cute turquoise bow belt. Since my fiancé has four lizards at our home I of course sported my lizard ear cuff in the first place last weekend. You will see those (freezing) outfit shots in my next post which will hopefully show up in the near future. My dear Estonian readers, have you had any experience with müüü?


Secondly I attended a 20% off sale at our local department store on Wednesday evening and am now allowed to proudly say our Christmas gift list is finally complete! And as a nice bonus I conjointly gathered a few fine things for myself too but I'm in great need of proper daylight to take photos of those goods and dozens of others. For example I should post my very newest Oriflame haul from last weekend. However, spending time at work from 8:00 am till 5:00 pm every weekday leaves me absolutely no well-lighted moments at home. Luckily there are entirely 5 free days waiting for us, Estonians, and shortly after that additional 4 free days to correctly celebrate the arrival of New Year. 9 days in total - that sounds especially well!

Talking about luck and good things I have some incredible news...
I have won 4 lovely blog giveaways lately and to be honest still can't believe my recent windfall in that department. Simply unbelievable!
Naturally I'm going to showcase my prizes when I receive something (I found out about two winnings only yesterday and did a nice happy dance in my mind). Therefore, at least now you are aware of the fact I have much interesting stuff to post about. But for the time being I highly hope you enjoy my current photos and collages and always let me know what you think because I really love hearing from you :)

May the good times and treasures of the present become the golden memories of tomorrow. Wish you lots of love, joy and happiness. 
Merry Christmas!

  22. Happy Holidays Maiken! You look great in all these looks and I def know the whole issue with pricetags! I've left a few tags on their when it is a gift to my Mom, this happens when the store boxes the gift and forgets to put a sticker over the price. haha.

  26. ma arvasin, et kui ma vist tõesti pärast peaaegu ligi kuu aja möödumist Bloglovinisse sisse login, ootab mind miljon postitust erinevatelt blogijatelt, aga tegelt on mul ühest küljest hea meel näha, et detsember on jätkuvalt detsember ja ma pole ainus, kellelt see aega, energiat ja muud seesugust ammutab :) ehk teisisõnu, ma ei tunne end siis lihtsalt nii halvasti või midagi. aga kui teemasse süveneda, siis ma olen seda müüüd ka ise vaadanud ja tundub nii-nii armas netipood olevat, aga pole sealt veel midagi tellinud. ma pole üldse midagi ammu netist tellinud, aga tahaks, sest pakki on jätkuvalt kuidagi nii tore saada! eriti kui viitsitakse vaeva näha, nagu siin müüü puhul paistab - sellised personaalsed pöördumised on harvad nähtused, aga toob nii sooja tunde kohe :)

    1. minul on blogimisega nii, et kui mul postituse tegemiseks ja pühendumiseks aega pole, siis jätan parem tegemata, aga midagi suvalist siia ka tekitada ei taha. vahel on nii raske olla perfektsionist :D
      muide, ma pole seda postitust unustanud, mille sa veel sel aastal tegema pidid. või no põhimõtteliselt pidid :D ja paki saamine meeldib mulle ka, kuigi seda juhtub üpris harva. müüül olen aga silma peal hoidnud ikka nii igaks juhuks :P

  31. Wow, look at all of that snow! (Your outfit in the snow is so pretty and fun, I love how the dark colored pants look with your black boots and the sweater, it's so pretty and the bow is adorable. I always love to see how other cold-weather ladies dress stylish in the snow, you look fantastic. And your party dress is stunning.) I hope you got to have a delightful Christmas, how nice about getting that time off! Happy New Year dear!

  32. Dear Maiken, first of all Merry Christmas and thank you so, so much for all your sweet comments and inspiration you give to me;)
    These photos of yours are super beautiful. the last outfit is amazing, you do look absolutely stunning! The burgundy dress suits you perfectly and the necklace is so eye-catchy.
    I also love your previous outfit and how you added a little colour/playful touch into your hair.
    The jewellery you've bought are super cute and I'm looking forward to more outfit posts featuring them.

    Xx
