Hello! It's about time to eliminate a couple of old and dusty blogging debts! And the first one stands for the public announcement of the lucky winner of my Chicnova giveaway. So, according to the well-known random.org the winner is Kayleigh Jean, an experienced reader and dear blog friend. And she already received her coupon on Monday. But I would also like to thank everybody else who participated - I truly appreciate each and every one of you, guys, for the support.
Now, my other, terribly dusty debt is slightly bigger and more long-lasting. Perhaps some of you even remember how I promised to tell you about our pre-Christmas half-day trip to the capital town again and again. Well, I'm finally doing it! Our notorious trip took place on December 14 when we caught the earliest train to Tallinn and first stole a swift glance at the Christmas market held at the Town Hall Square. My favourites there were obviously the most adorable and genuine reindeer who just melted my heart into one big puddle of admiration. Though at the same time it made me very sad they were actually used as plain exhibits (animals often make me overly emotional).
But let's talk about something more pleasant - shopping (see the collages far below!). In the first place we visited H&M and I bought myself a kids' sweatshirt (€9.95) that was in my H&M interest list anyway (see the entire list from this November post). Today this item is unfortunately no longer available so I'm glad I snatched it in time. But E. was also successful and in the end came across a nicely fitting pair of jeans.
Therefore we had definitely earned our late but healthy breakfast at Stockmann café. And Stockmann it was then. For one thing I got my first pair of imitation leather pants from Seppälä and it was a real bargain: I saved more than 39 euros (
€49.95 €10.77)! I have already been wearing them burgundy pants as often as possible to make them count to the max. And even though I didn't dig my H&M interest list's natural white knitted hat in reality (looked too shabby!) I luckily came across this striped Etcetera cutie ( €16.90 €12.70) in Stockmann. And that was it, we walked to the railway station to complete our day in metropolis with a pleasant lunch and something relaxing to drink at Travel restaurant.
Last but not least, in addition to everything mentioned above I would like to point out two rather fresh thrift finds (€3.50 in total): a sleeveless Zara Trafaluc blouse with collar clips and a fringe bag from Complement. But what was I thinking about when I grabbed those utterly summery goodies in the middle of our endlessly crappy winter? Well, of course about the Mediterranean climate that will become reality after a patient but busy wait.
So, since some of you had already curiously asked for my long-lost outfit posts then finally it's here and I hope you enjoy all the photos. Definitely let me know what you think because I always love hearing from you.
