Open up to all things new

Hi! 
Although the weather has become a lot warmer here in Tartu I thought I should still post this outfit since it's one of my favourites. I remember I was in a rush leaving home that day when I had asked my friend Julia to take photos after school. It was one of the first warm days and the snow had just melted so I felt like leaving home wearing a monochrome outfit would have been like a crime. I was a bit hesitant of this lilac coat but now seeing these photos I wish I had worn it more often. 

I'm really sorry there aren't more photos but I have had trouble uploading them for weeks. The photos turned greyish as soon as I added them on my blog and I finally gave up and posted only these two photos.

Let's keep it natural






Hi! 
During these past months I've used less make-up than I usually do. I've tried to find better skincare products for my skin which might have led me to a bad purchase. Although I've been using face scrubs before a new one caused me a lot of break-outs which I'm not happy about. Now I'm trying to give it a rest and avoid using anything that could irritate it. 

I've been using Bourjois Healthy Mix correction concealer underneath my eyes and other blemishes. I've also contoured my face with The Body Shop bronzing powder and added a blush - in my case Make-up Store's Lust. I don't like the packaging at all since I somehow always manage to break it (or get the blush shattered), but it's one of the most beautiful colours I've used so I try to use it only at home and not carry it around. I've underestimated the power of blush as well as filling in your brows. I've also been trying out Lumene's brow pencil which is one of the few make-up brands that have a light brown colour. Lastly, I've added Lumene's eyebrow fixing gel to secure the pencil. For my lashes I've added one coat of L'oreal Miss Manga mascara to build it up for a more dollish look.

Love,

Couple nail polishes and a new watch



I guess there's only a few people who know that my interest in beauty and fashion started from watching youtube videos. I was in the 8th grade and admired all the youtubers who knew so many things about make-up. At the time my nerdy side was dominant. I didn't use make-up until the 9th grade (I was 15-16 years old) and paid little attention to how I looked. It was also the time when I started to grow a nail polish addiction that I've actually mentioned in one of the first posts on my blog. There was a time when I was embarrassed to say how many nail polishes I owned and I still have too many of them. Though I've started giving the colours I don't frequently use to my friends and slowly getting rid of them. 

Last weekend I bought two nail polishes for spring. I don't have any pastel colours and I was slowly getting tired of dark nails so I needed a change. I got two nail polishes from Rimmel. That pink one looks so lovely on nails and I'm currently waiting for when it's chipped so I can try out the mint one too. 

I also got myself a new watch. I think it was two years ago when I found a perfect silver watch from a second-hand shop. I've used it so many times that the metal is changing its colour, so I finally gave up and admitted I need one of higher quality. When I went to the stores to find one I noticed there's a 'dupe' for the watch I already had. I haven't regretted buying it since it clearly reminds me of my old watch.

Interview with Iclowiory

Hi! 
Some time ago I got an e-mail from the girls behind the blog Iclowiory. I've kept an eye on their blog from the beginning since they are quite young and combine really interesting clothing items. So I was really flattered when they asked if I could answer some questions for an interview on their blog. All in all I answered nine questions including some tips for bloggers who have just started blogging, so if you're interested in what I do in my spare time and what inspires me, make sure to check out their blog HERE.

Things will always get better

Hi!
I've been home and suffering from fever for four days now. I don't remember when was the last time I felt this weak and it's really frustrating me since I don't like doing nothing. I looked through some of my old photos and found these ones taken a month ago. Weather was warmer than it has been during this winter and the sun was shining brightly so I took advantage of it and wore high heeled boots and a lighter jacket.

But first, coffee

Hi! 
While doing my chemistry homework and drinking coffee I realised I haven't blogged about my 'new phone' yet. I didn't get a new phone although I've heard that question even too many times. The story dates back to last December, when there was a bloggers' flea market event. We all got goodie bags, which contained a gift card for Kinleaves - a web store that sells vinyl skins for phones and other devices. I didn't order one for my phone immediately because the gift card didn't cover the whole delivery but I managed to find a sale code from their FB about a month ago and made the purchase. I chose a quite simple light coloured one with a clear message that expresses my love towards coffee, which changed my boring black phone into a totally new one. Also, today I realised I made the right decision when choosing the skin I like the most, since recently I've had too many sleepless nights.

Houndstooth and icey roses

Hi!
This past week the temperature fell below -20 degrees and I somehow managed to take photos of an outfit just before that change. This sweater is perfect for cold days, because it's extremely warm, and it's nice to get some colour to the outfits too. I was eyeing it for weeks but I didn't want to spend 50 euros on a sweater, so I left it in the store. Surprisingly I found my size in a sale and didn't hesitate to buy it!
