Happy February, guys! It is the shortest month of the year but for me it already seems to be the most packed one as well. Several public procurement training courses in the capital town, manicure, hairdresser, a couple of doctor's appointments, Shrove Tuesday, Independence Day, E's grandmother's 75th jubilee, the long-awaited return of The Walking Dead and more are approaching. But on the other hand the busier the better because our exciting trip in April comes even quicker then! And I'm already super anxious to soon sow this year's first seeds too! But what I have for you today is basically the recap of our snowy January, including a small haul, photos taken in the countryside, at our own place and during a couple of shopping trips.
So let's begin with eight useful goodies bought in January. First come the six I snatched during January 9 and 10 shopping trips in Tartu: a lovely wintry pillow and cool leopard gloves from Tiger, the prettiest magazine I've ever seen in my life - Daphne's Diary, fierce tiger slippers from a supermarket's men's section, Guess beanie from Denim Dream and the cutest panda hoodie from the husband. That panda has a soft fur coat by the way and I will definitely show it to you in my future outfit posts!
Anyhow, on January 16 we briefly visited our capital town and Stockmann where after highly thorough and long-lasting choosing and the husband's slightly ruined nerves I finally picked out a Love Moschino handbag which came with a groovy foulard as a bonus. I'm in love with its firm shape and textured leather. But I found only one place where they sell it online, the shop's called Cuoieria and it's located here. Oh and I quickly gave away two old bags from my collection to properly balance the bag situation.
But now about the freshest and most needed winter purchase from January 23 - my wonderful Timberland boots from Sportland. I searched and searched and finally tracked them down from where? From the children's section! It's a miracle because I'm actually a bigfoot. They're not the typical ones everyone else seems to have, they don't have annoying laces or zippers, they're truly waterproof and of course super comfortable. In short a big big ♥. By the way, I'm curious which was your latest best purchase?
Moving on with the countryside photos now. At the beginning of January snow started to arrive, thrivingly, and our surroundings looked like a true winter wonderland for weeks. So we visited my grandparents in the middle of the snowy woods and took a couple of wintry walks there. I also did some ice-skating and absolutely enjoyed it and E did some filming. We watched the birds, harassed the cat a little and talked about spring and sowing the first seeds in February. I've already bought 7 new packs of seeds by the way and can show you those if you guys happen to be interested.
Anyway, last but not least comes one very miscellaneous bunch of photos: something taken at home and something during a quick January 10 shopping trip to Tartu. So first you can see a couple of typical play and relaxation poses from our amusing little Elvis. And then some sweet macaroons my mom brought me because I gave her a thrifted Fiorelli bag she really loved. And then of course our very first self-made sushi which was unbelievably delicious and in my humble opinion looked quite skilful as well. I ordered our sushi making kit through this site and we used salmon, cucumber and avocado as our fillings. By the way, the ones who love sushi - which are your favourite (no sea creature except salmon) fillings?
And finally our sunny Sunday shopping trip to Tartu. On our way back home we came across a pack of roe deer, four beautiful animals. And then we took some nature and outfit photos in a hilly location I really love and which you also saw in my previous post. Oh and today all the snow is already gone. It came with January and also left with it during last week. I'm not sad it's gone but it's still nice to look back on those white, crisp, picturesque days. My outfit is an everyday cold weather outfit by the way, layered, very simple and cosy.
ps. A little reminder for you - every link in my posts always opens in a new window when you left-click it so you don't need the right-click to open them.

I don't know what I'm going to share with you in my next post but I'm thinking about a fresh outfit maybe or a Japan Candy Box review because I was happy enough to win one and it's the coolest thing ever, definitely worth sharing with you guys! So see you next time!
