Happy May, guys! How has your fifth month of the year shaped so far? Mine has been even slightly too eventful. In other words one of my (huge!) molar teeth was pulled out on April 28 and that surgical procedure was followed by a long, hungry, excruciatingly painful week. During that week, among other "great" things nasty inflammation (or was it infection? or both? who knows any more!) occured, my deep
meteor crater wound was dug up again and a drain was installed.
Painkillers were my most loyal companions and when the drain was removed after approximately four days I experienced unrealistically cutting and comprehensive pain... again. So, all in all I had four doctor visits in 10 days and at first I was swimming deep in misery but today the storm has finally passed and I think I can say I'm successfully recovering (by the way, all those "adventures" didn't include any sick leaves because keeping myself as busy as possible helped me battle even bigger blues).
So, let's keep moving in positive direction and peek our relatively recent (April 18-19) spa trip to Noorus spa hotel (visit their multilingual home page here) in Narva-Jõesuu! Our breezy time there started with a surprising, free of charge room upgrade: instead of a 15-20 m² standard room they gave us a capacious 25 m² family room with a bathtub and a beautifully sunlit sea view balcony. Obviously we were pleased with our room and I was especially delighted with the bathroom and its fresh, knobbly textured tiles. Those were the coolest tiles I've seen in a long time (and yes, such seemingly irrelevant details matter to me). I've created three collages to show you the bright and warm nature of our room.
When it comes to our fabulous balcony I've added almost two balcony view outfits in today's blog post (almost because number one is missing shoes, oops). So, one of them is a little brief but it includes entirely two of my recent it-pieces: a thrifted black and white €3 geometrical sweater and those dark red €
29.95 2.48 (!!) FB Sister skinny pants from New Yorker. I suspect the kid mohair-wool blend sweater might be a By Malene Birger creation but I'm not 100% certain so maybe someone among my readers knows for sure? Oh and that large scale tube scarf from pieces is already several years old.
Now, the second look involves two newcomers from H&M and Sinsay. I purchased those pieces before arriving at the spa and in addition to the Divided by H&M see-through hearts sweatshirt (€
29.99 5) and Sinsay ballerinas (€ 9.99 6.99) I snatched a bow hair clip (€ 3.99 1) and a floral soft bra (€ 9.99 5) from H&M and cute golden earrings (€ 2.99 0.49) from Sinsay. Sales are clearly the next best thing after thrift shopping!

I hope you enjoyed today's sunny photographs and of course I'm going to tell you more about our spa experience (procedures, surroundings, staff) in another blog post since I didn't want to drag out this one. I also have fresh material about gardening and a number of outfits waiting for their turn so I guess you just have to bear with me and all my "lovely" obstacles. Anyway, I'm definitely anxious to create new stuff so see you in the next post!
