Third time's a charm (Born Pretty 3)

Hello, sweeties! I'm sincerely happy you enjoyed my winter photographs and I want to say a big thank you for all the lovely notes you left me. You're the best and I appreciate your feedback a lot! Well and since most of you are so fond of snow anyway then let it be your lucky day and you're going to see some more white stuff. We took the outfit shots on January 25 near Rakvere and the weather was freezing. That's why I could not take off my cosy winter jacket (I'm not a self-destructing lunatic, you know). Oh and the main purpose of those photos was to present my three new gifts from lovely Born Pretty (link).


But first of all, have you seen my previous posts about Born Pretty? If you haven't then you can do it here and here. Now, without any further ado for one thing I finally picked something practical and useful - a snow white winter beanie that really is warm and cosy, perfect for cold and windy days. The quality is great (totally looks like a crafty granny has knitted it!), this leather strap adds some necessary character and the price is very reasonable too ($9.31/€6.89). And you can choose between beige, black, khaki, pink, red, white, yellow... a whole range of versatile colours! Click here to get your own beanie or here to browse all the hats, caps, beanies and other headgear Born Pretty store currently offers.


Therefore, a warm beanie sounds quite auspiciously, right? But don't be fooled, I slipped right after that and once again picked two pairs of earrings. TWO pairs! Talk about recovery when delightful earrings are ambushing everywhere around you! And I honestly adore both pairs. Both are beautifully delicate, full of amazingly teeny details and of course very affordable. My adorable starfish babies (link) cost only $3.72/€2.75 and the beautiful butterflies embellished with shiny rhinestones (link) are $2.98/€2.21.
I know the prices are incredible anyway but I still offer you a chance to take advantage of this 10% off coupon code JET10 and pay even less. Don't miss it!


beanie (link) and earrings (starwish-link; butterflies-link) c/o Born Pretty | Lindex necklace | Levi's winter jacket | thrifted bow blouse | thrifted belt | Fornarina pants | thrifted boots.
 
And last but not least you can see a few goodies I got from Rakvere. My new favourite cardigan from Holly & Whyte by Lindex (€24.95 7.49) caught my eye with its beautiful colours and I have to say I absolutely love pink and brown together like that. I also had our spring vacation in mind which is why I snapped those mini John Frieda Sheer Blonde Highlight Activating Enhancing Shampoos (€0.59 each) that should brighten the full spectrum of darker blonde tones. Well and I just was in great need of a fresh nail file so I casually grabbed this P2 Profi Nail Studio 3 step polishing file (€0.49) too.


I know several of you were already waiting for an outfit post and I hope you enjoyed it. I'm not sure my next post will include an outfit again but a few pretty awesome €1 thrift finds are patiently waiting to be presented and at least one of those treasures has a price tag that says something like €319 so beware because this is going to be nice ;) For the time being enjoy today's photos and let me know what you think. See you!

  1. Such gorgeous jewellery. I love the bright colours of those crystal earrings. And your ball necklace looks so cool with your printed blouse. I also loved the little button details on your hat. All in all your posts makes it clear that accessories really do matter!:)

  4. I really do admire the fact that you get out in such cold weather to take photos, even if you do leave your coat on - that is true dedication :) And I must say, the more you post about Born Pretty, the more I'm covetting their cute items. I'm not normally a butterfly fan but those sparkly butterfly earrings are just too pretty! And they probably look lovely peeking out from under your beanie :)

  5. Oooh, pretty earrings! I like the practical white beanie too :) I've been wearing more of those too this past week - snow has been hitting us believe it or not! Nothing like you've got there (yet, at least...haha)!

  8. I can't believe I was like "I'm waiting for a post" and then I missed the previous one! But I saw it now, with the beautiful winter pictures and the sweet dog - beautiful picture playing with it! Now, this post, wow, such a lovely beanie and I also loved the shirt! You did it well, don't take the coat off when it's too cold - just remember me and the 6 colds I caught last year, because of being stupid :) Now, how can you find these amazing earrings for that price? I don't know which pair I like most, I think the sea star! I know that the ones who have snow want a bit of sun, but here we only have rain and I wanted some snow so much :) I loved your pictures and you always look so sweet, beautiful and with such a great peaceful atmosphere - I so much need this right now! I always look forward to your comments, they really lift my spirit! Thanks for that! denisesplanet com

  9. These shots are in fact pretty and I do love snow (especially since we haven't had any yet) but I got cold just by looking at you.:D I wouldn't take of the jacket either, even though I'm a tad more self-destructive than you I think.:) Both pairs of your new earrings are so adorable and pretty, it's no wonder you couldn't resist.:)

    And I wanted to say that I know that the coats are hideous.:D I agree with my dog 100 % but what can you do, if it's cold, it's cold. I'm sure your dog appreciates a coat in this snow!:)

  11. I must be one of your readers who enjoyed the wintry photos, and I still do! The photos here are simply stunning. We've lost the cold again here in Helsinki and are back to 0 or + degrees. I would prefer winter and snow. Your hair looks beautiful in these photos! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Regarding your comment, have you ever met somebody that you have got to know through your blog?

  18. ma kunagi päris-päris ammu proovisin John Frieda mingit sarnase põhimõttega spreid, mida pärast pesu juustesse lased ja mis siis nii föönitamise kui päikese mõjul üldpilti heledamaks teeb. see töötas küll päris hästi ja andis sellise ilusa läike. ma föönitan juukseid üpris harva ja seda ka pigem talvel, et mitte niisekete juustega välja minna, kuid puhtalt päikesega töötas küll päris hästi. üldsegi minu kogemused John Frieda juuksehooldustoodetega on siiani olnud valdavalt positiivsed :)

    1. ma ei mäletagi, kas mul on John Friedaga mingid eelnevad kogemused olnud või mitte, aga seda on hea kuulda, et kellelgi on need asjad kenasti töötanud. mina saan siis umbes 3 kuu pärast teada, kas tasub täissuuruses tooteid endale soetada või mitte. ja see sprei kõlab ka põnevalt! kuigi föönitan ma ilmselt paar korda aastas, kui üldse. mu juuksetüüp pole eriline föönisõber :P

  23. Thank you Maiken for your comment! I've met great Finnish bloggers, but unfortunately none foreign yet. Of course through my work I've met a lot of bloggers, but those I haven't personally followed before meeting. It would be nice to attend a blogger meet up. I know many travel bloggers meet at travel fair, but I don't know where international lifestyle bloggers could meet?!
