(eestikeelne allpool) I’m changing these rainy days and falling leaves for some sunshine this week and heading off to Macedonia! An unconventional and under-the-radar choice, brought on by the budget flights of WizzAir, I’m hoping this will inject some necessary vitamin D to recharge. I think I’ve packed all the essentials, so I thought I’d share a few of them here too, in case any of you need a bit on inspiration to book a trip to under the sun. You can keep up with…Continue Reading “Packing For Macedonia”

how-to-wear-checked-blazer-trend-autumn-2017

Can you even call yourself a blogger if you don’t have a checked blazer to dip back into the nineties and up your Insta game this fall? Nope, didn’t think so. I found mine at Bershka on one of those ~shopping like a man~ sprees, where you’re scanning the shop, focused on finding that one thing you’re after and if you don’t set your sight on something check-printed, then whisk off to the next shop in hopes of better luck. Staying true to my femininity…Continue Reading “Like A Man”

A sign that I’ve been listening to a band too much, is when their lyrics start creeping into my post titles. Case in point – Future Islands, who’s albums are the perfect background to any rainy day and trust me, we’ve had plenty. I’m still quite diligently wearing my embroidered loafers however, even though they’re a bit too chilly and about three times of getting soaked in the rain away from falling apart on me. Luckily they’re a gorgeous match with the falling leaves too,…Continue Reading “Seasons Change”

This summer my wardrobe was more governed by some accidentally perfect, trend-pursuing vintage finds, than impulse fast fashion buys and that’s definitely part of my shopping habit that I’m proud of (or maybe I only spend on home ware these days?). Exhibit not even a, but more like c or d – this silk dress. With the weather turning to the summery side once more, it doesn’t seem too inappropriate to share these lush pictures from Pärnu, the summer capital in Estonia, in the middle…Continue Reading “Indian Summer”

working-with-blogger-101

(Eestikeelne allpool!) I’m back with another post in my series of “I wrote a thesis on blogging and need to share everything I found out”. During the process I interviewed ten Estonian bloggers on how and why they work with brands and as a result, put together a little guide for both bloggers and PRs on how to work with the other side. Because frankly, blogging is still some mystical land of pink-iced cupcakes and lipstick releases that only a handful of companies in Estonia…Continue Reading “A Guide For Bloggers: Working With Brands”

In a post in June I listed a few things I’d hope to do this summer and while the weather hasn’t really benefitted beach days, I’m happy to look back on the past few months and say that I’ve ticked off almost all of the things from my summer bucket list, with an unexpected city break to Warsaw thrown in there too! Fair enough, there’s still some of August left and I don’t want to be ~that person~ declaring the premature arrival of autumn, but…Continue Reading “Cosy Corners of Warsaw”

I’m aware that the title sounds like I’m in the cast of the next chick-flick 00’s film, calling my bestie on my hamburger phone and gushing over some rockstar guy, but tbh, that’s exactly what I want to do, when I find another cool band. If EDM is your cup of tea, I don’t mind if you look away now, but any indie-loving pop-rock girls, plug in your earphones and get ready! Having been to quite a few gigs this year and wishing for the…Continue Reading “5 bands you totally need to listen!”

It might be a bit past its shelf life, but I graduated from university this summer and yet, I haven’t shared one word about my graduation outfit on the blog. Which we all know, is the most important about the whole event, right? It seems to me that as the girls get older and classes higher, the outfits get more minimal. Middle school was a party of tulle and princess dresses, high school was about classier pretend-grown-up dresses and university about classic pieces you would…Continue Reading “Summer In The City”

Here to cure your lunchtime hungers is the second part of my guide to Warsaw on all things eating and drinking! As I did some quite impressive research for this trip, including finding and saving so many amazing-looking cafés on Instagram, then even though we had a great apartment with a better kitchen than the one we have at home, we ate out most of the time. Of course it had to do with the prices in Poland – 15 euros was quite the standard for…Continue Reading “My Guide To Warsaw: Where To Eat”

Being right on the border of Eastern and Central Europe, Poland is a country of contrasts and definitely a sight. I recently had the opportunity to write a travel article about Warsaw, the Polish capital, and having never been there, I had to rely on my thorough Googling skills and the experience of friends to put the guide together. What I didn’t expect to happen, was that I managed to sell Warsaw as a destination to myself also, so the better part of this summer was…Continue Reading “My Guide To Warsaw: What To See”
