Pink and gold

Happy March, everyone!
First and foremost I want to say thank you to those who were concerned after my previous blog post that was just enough complaining/whining. You are the best and your sweet and thoughtful comments naturally made me smile. Well and luckily evil energy-sucking February is over now and I can finally start with my boundless vacation wait. After all, only three and a half months to go and suffer and be patient with. What a joy, don't you think? But enough of the sarcasm now. When will arrive your next holiday? Are you thrilled or super thrilled?

Anyhow, I already said goodbye to February but I still stubbornly want to share the most depressing shopping trip ever from the 23rd of February. To cut a long story short it contained some "delightful" time at the division of emergency medicine in Rakvere. And let me tell you I simply hate every single hospital so this should probably clarify things a bit for you. I even completely lost my appetite and was not able to enjoy my Mediterranean chicken burger afterwards although I was actually starving. But I'm not going to look back on it any more because as usual, I know every single thing happens for a damn good reason.

By the way, in spite of everything bad I still accomplished highly decent and successful sale shopping at Lindex and Seppälä. Lindex delivered me marvelous apricot gloves (7.95 2.39), beyond adorable asymmetrical wolves' print top from kids' section (17.95 10.75) and a super cheap 3-pack of organic cotton lingerie (14.95 2.95). On the other hand good old Seppälä pampered me with a generous 3 for 2 offer I could simply not resist so I got a wonderful rose gold cuff bracelet (7.95 2) for summer, orange chandelier earrings (6.95 0) and orange hair bow clips (3.95 1). Gosh how widely I already miss springtime, waking from almost never-ending hibernation.

1-4 Seppälä;
5-7 Lindex;
8 Nasturtium officinale - watercress; Basella rubra - Indian spinach.

Talking about spring I also purchased Indian spinach and watercress seeds so now I have another lightsome planting job waiting for me. But presently bright green cucumber twins (the first photo!) and onion shoots are decorating one of our many sunward windowsills.

Last but not least a few words about my pink and gold outfit (hence the title of this post). I was wearing my golden Orsay pants and pink orchid print Reserved top for the very first time and yes, I do have reddish streaks in my hair. Several of you already noticed and approved those so thanks! I love it too! ;) And once again I hope you like the photos. I'm quite pleased with the bright (pink) tone this time. So, enjoy and let me know what you think.
Till next time! :)

  1. apppi kui ilusad need orhideepildid Sul on! ja ma just natuke aega tagasi mõtlesin, et kas hakkan ka sel kevadel taimi kasvatama, aga tundub et vist tuleb ikka hakata ;)

    1. ma peaks teistest "õitsejatest" ka pilte tegema mõnel järjekordsel päikeselisel päeval :)

      ja täna sai siis veel mõned seemned mulda pistetud. nii mõnus on kogu seda arengut jälgida.. näiteks roheline sibul kasvab küll ebareaalselt kiiresti! täna tegime esimene salati oma sibulaga :P okei, jutu mõte on see, et muidugi kasvata taimi! ;)

  2. nii mõnus värviline kõik!
    kas sa oled nüüd ka kulla omaks võtnud? ma nagu mäletaks, et sa oled justkui öelnud, et sulle kuldsed ehted väga ei meeldi

    ReplyDelete

    1. ütleme siis nii, et mõned üksikud kulda imiteerivad ehted on tõesti tee minuni leidnud, aga hõbe jääb ilmselt ikka väga kõvasti domineerima. näiteks ühtegi õigest kullast ehet (v.a. Eriku kingitud valgest kullast kihlasõrmus) ma endale soetanud ei ole ja pole plaanis ka. aga asi seegi, et meel niigi palju muutunud on :D

      Delete
    2. no valget kulda võib ekslikult välimuse põhjal ka hõbedaks pidada, nii et see nagu läheb selles suhtes kokku pigem hõbedaga. ma olen ka alati oma valgest kullast ehteid seetõttu ikka hõbeehetega koos kandnud.
      aga ma olin ise ka kunagi pigem hõbeda poolt või siis valge kuld, kollast kandsin väga vähe ja needki olid vaid mõned kingitud ehted. nüüd on see mulle aga täitsa meeldima hakanud ja mul on selle üle ainult hea meel st mõlemad on ilusad ja ma usun, et jään kindlasti mõlemaid kordamööda kandma - mõnikord on hõbe justkui säravam, teinekord jällegi kuld :)

      Delete
    3. mina kandsin kulda siis, kui alles esimesed kõrvarõngaaugud sain ja ema mulle neid kuldvidinaid kuskilt leidis. päris tükk aega oli nii, kui nüüd õigesti mäletan. aga siis ühel hetkel käis nii-öelda plõks ära ja meel muutus täielikult. nüüd jah on hakanud see tolerants kulla suhtes tagasi tulema.. kõigepealt mõned riided, nüüd mõned ehted ka juba :P

  3. Don't worry, we all have to whine/complain every now and then. Haha, and yes, February is over! One month closer to vacation time...I've got a spring break coming up that I'm looking forward to, although I think it'll probably just be filled with work instead of school, so I don't know if I should be looking forward to it or not...haha
    I love the pink tones on you! It complements your cute streaks in your hair :)

  9. Your metallic pants are sooooo cool and I LOVE the pretty pink! So gorgeous together :)And aww so sorry to hear about the hospital thing, hope you're feeling better. Although you are seriously so good at shopping! I love the cuff bracelet the best, it is so chic and seems pretty versatile. Can't wait to see you wear it!

    1. and thank you for the outfit idea with the teal vest, wearing it over a dress seems like a good idea :)

  10. Blah, who doesn't hate hospitals. I don't know why so many hospitals look so creepy and depressing. It's just not right. Imagine if they decorated it a little, maybe paint the walls pink? Put some paintings, make it more cheerful for God's sake. We already know people are sick in there, no need to shove it in our faces -_-
    WOw, disco pants are so shiny and pretty with the pink <3 Looove!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yep, Jan and Feb deffo do suck the most ><
    Ow :0, the ER trip doesn't sound nice at all. I'm not a big fan of of hospitals either.
    I love your plants. Mine died while I was in Oulu :P. And then your outfit pretty much looks like your orchids :D. The golden pants are super :)

  12. Love your hair, too ! Probably forgot to tell last time. :) Your orchids are really beautiful too. I'd love to have one, but I'm horrible at taking care of flowers (water them whenever I happen to remember etc.) :D Your golden pants are so cool and bird earrings very lovely. Also very fond of your newbies! I have the same earrings in neon yellow. xx

  13. I know that I say this all the time, but I'm always so impressed by your ability to successfuly shop sales and come back with so many lovely things for such a low price... it definitely is a skill! I can't wait to see how you'll wear those orange chandelier earrings, but in the meantime I'm totally blown away by your gold pants from Orsay; I would never have guessed how amazing they could look with pink, but the combination looks like it was meant to be, especially now with those slightly red-pink streaks in your hair :)

  14. Yikes, a hospital trip?! I hope you're doing alright and that it wasn't anything too serious, those emergency trips are scary!
    Hahha, March first was suppose to be the first of spring according to the calender, I'm pretty sure it lied. But at least spring it that much close and it is nice to have febuary over and done with! I love how you echoed the pictures of the beautiful in your outfit, the bright pinks are so pretty and uplifting among all of that snow! (and I do really love the pinkish streaks in your hair, they look so pretty on you! you have such long, gorgeous hair!)
    You found some really beautiful and gorgeous items on your shopping trip and for such crazy good prices! That rose gold cuff is cut stunning, I love the little chains on it. The wolf tee shirt is so fun and cool as well, I'm really excited to see how you might style it.
    Hah, here's hoping that it warms up and the snow melts soon!

  15. Maiken,

    P.S. I love the gold cuff and the bracelet!!

  26. maiken, your orchids are sublime! if only i didn't kill every single one, i've ever owned. i like the pink shade of your orchid blouse with cardigan and belt to your gold rock and roll pants. :) i did notice the red streaks in your hair, such fun. nice details of your parrot earrings. your gloves look so soft. the vibrancy of your new jewelry reminds me of spring. i hate hospitals too. hope you're ok. i look forward to seeing how your new seeds will grow.

  28. Very beautiful orchids. I do not know how to cultivate them. I had once, but they never bloomed and after all, they finally began to rot. So I just throw away them. ups!
    And talking about your outfit, I love the flowered blouse paired with these metalic pants. Looks amazing! ;)
