(eestikeelne allpool) The thing with having a blog is, that behind the outfit posts, press events and content plans, it’s first and foremost a diary. So looking back on 2017 and reading through my last post of last year, I realise that even without really thinking of it, I’ve accomplished most of what I thought I would. Even if I thought I didn’t set myself any goals or made any big resolutions, they still happened. I intended to go resolution-free to 2018 as…Continue Reading “Oh hi, 2018”

If you’d asked me a year ago if I’d like to try a new trend in the beauty sphere, called ‘double cleansing’, I’d have thought myself too lazy and happy enough with my just one cleanse. But now, the older, wiser, having-lived-through-2017 me is proudly backing the double cleanse hype, wondering, much like every other blogger other there, what I did before the big Double Cleanse. This year I’ve also felt that travelling might be freeing for the mind, but it’s oh-so-straining on my skin…Continue Reading “Attempting the Double Cleanse”

Even though I’m a spring girl through and through, I do like the cosy feel autumn brings, especially the chance to snuggle into cosy jumpers that double as a comfort blanket during the day. This very basic Uniqlo one is by far my favourite – it’s a bit slouchy, fully woolen and the magical colour of grey – and I’ve been pairing it with everything in my wardrobe. Jeans are a no-brainer, but finding this second-hand skirt in my closet kind of rung a few…Continue Reading “Jumper Stories”

There’s just something about film photography that makes it so enchanting. Maybe it’s the element of surprise you get once the film is developed and the sheer joy of seeing the pictures turn out well-lit, and cheerful. Perhaps it’s the point-and-shoot simplicity of it all. Or the fact that the quality compared to digital photography is so low-maintenance, muted, grainy and vintage, giving the pictures an instant charm without any editing. I’ve shared my films on the blog before – for example this summery set…Continue Reading “Vintage Tourist”

Although my Instagram might suggest otherwise, I am indeed back from our sunny getaway to Macedonia. Back home in Estonia, dealing with the first snowfall of the year and trying to slid back into my routine. However, as I’m still finishing the baklava I brought back, it feels like our little getaway wasn’t too long ago and seeing myself in summery outfits still seems a bit tangible. So to make all of you cold northerners yearn a bit of warm sunshine, I bring you my…Continue Reading “Holiday Outfits”

(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”

parnu-blogger-summer-vintage-dress-estonia

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”
