Harbor

Hi! 
This weekend I'll be attending a fantasy photography workshop that will be held by Siiri Kumari and Gen Vagula. I'll be one of the four models there and the shooting will take place at Padise mansion. I took my camera with me so I can share some photos later on my blog. I think it's really fun to work with different photographers and I actually can't wait to see the results of this workshop. Here are some photos that Siiri took when we first met a couple of weeks ago. // Sel nädalavahetusel osalen Siiri Kumari ja Gen Vagula fantaasiafotograafia workshopis, kuid mitte fotograafina. Olen üheks neljast modellist, keda fotograafid pildistavad, ning erinevalt teistest modellidest sõidan juba täna Padise mõisasse. Võtsin oma fotoka ka kaasa, et saaksin seal pilte teha ja neid teiega blogis jagada. Vahelduseks teiste fotograafidega töötamine on päris huvitav kogemus ja ootan põnevusega, mis workshopis toimuma hakkab. Siin aga mõned pildid, mis Siiri paar nädalat tagasi minust tegi.

Army of dreamers

Hi!
I really like wearing my wellies. This might sound a bit weird, but they make me feel graceful. They look perfect with kneehighs, tights and skirts or dresses. Wellies are also really comfortable plus they keep your feet dry when it rains, so there's no excuse for not wearing them. Another thing I really like about this outfit is this over-sized jumper. It's so comfortable and minimal at the same time that I like to wear it with everything. That might explain why I wore it in this unexpected combination with a dotted skirt. // Mulle väga meeldib kummikuid kanda. Need tekitavad minus graatsilise ja naiselikku tunde, mis võib teile veider tunduda. Kummikuid on suurepärane kombineerida põlvikute, sukapükste ning kleidi või seelikuga. Lisaks on need väga mugavad ning hoiavad jalgu vihma korral kuivana, nii et ma ei leia ühtegi ettekääned, miks neid mitte kanda. See pusa on samuti mõnus ning olen seda praktiliselt kõigega kombineerinud. Lõpuks otsustasin täpilise seeliku kasuks, mis tundub ülejäänud riietust arvestades ebatavaline, kuid antud juhul ka ideaalne valik.

Gaultier for Lindex

Hi!
I'm on my way to Finland with my family and I decided to show you some photos of yesterday's Lindex showroom. I was invited there to see Lindex's new collection in collaboration with Jean Paul Gaultier that will be available in stores in October. I wish I could get so many items I saw there but I have to make some hard decisions soon. // Otsustasin, et proovin mõne aja kirjutada postitustest ka eesti keelse versiooni kuna enamik mu lugejatest on Eestist. Sõidan hetkel Soome, sest otsustasime perega reisile minna, kuid jagan teiega mõningaid pilte eilsest Lindexi showroomi külastusest. Oktoobris tuleb poodidesse Jean Paul Gaultieri ja Lindexi ühiskollektsioon, millega mul õnnestus juba eile tutvuda.

---

First thing that I noticed there was this rack filled with striped clothes. I'm sure everybody will find their favourites here because they are really comfortable and easy to style. // Esimesena torkas mulle silma triibuliste riietega stange. Seal oli nii kudumeid, pluuse kuid ka (vähemalt) üks mantel ning ma arvan, et paljud võiksid nende riiete hulgast endale midagi sobivat leida. Sest triibulisi riideid on imelihtne teistega kombineerida.

One of my favourite items was on the second rack. It was this grey sweater that has two zippers in front of the sweater. The entire rack was filled with items with zippers and there was also a blouse with a zipper print (quite crazy!). // Minu lemmikriideesemeks oli teisele stangele riputatud hall lukkudega kampsun, mis tundus piisavalt minimalistlik, kuid samas veidi ebatavaline. Teisel stangel paiknesid üldiselt lukkudega riided. Gaultier kasutas tõmblukke huvitavate detailidena, kuid samas oli seal ka pluus, millele oli peale printitud luku muster (üsna hullumeelne tulemus!).

Gaultier also made some lingerie and it's shaped slightly like his cone bras, but less dramatic. I really liked them, although I'm not sure how these'll look under everyday clothes. // Gaultier disainis Lindexile ka pesukollektsiooni ning osad rinnahoidjad olid kergelt koonusekujulised. Need olid väga lahedad, kuid ma pole kindel, kuidas need igapäevaste riiete all kandmiseks sobivad.

Lastly he designed many interesting "tattoo"-print clothing items. There were leggings that you can wear with skirts or shorts (they were quite transparent, so I wouldn't recommend wearing them on their own). This collection also had a dress, shirt and skirt with the same print, and that skirt was my favourite! // Ühe teemaks oli tatoveeringutest inspireerituna riideesemed, mis paistavad üpris erilised. Seal olid retuusid, mida saaks seelikute või lühikeste pükste all kanda (neid niisama kanda ei soovitaks, sest need olid läbipaistvad). Samasuguse mustriga oli ka kleit, pluus ning seelik, millest viimane oli minu lemmik.

There was Gaultier clothes for children too, which in my opinion is pretty awsome. Obviously this collection didn't include as many pieces than there were for adults, but I found a children version of my favourite tattoo-print skirt. // Gaultier'i kollektsioonis oli ka lastele rõivaid, kuid valik polnud päris nii suur kui täiskasvanutele, kuid see eest mitmekesine. Avastasin, et minu lemmikust tatoveeringu-mustriga seelikust on tehtud ka lasteversioon.

Lastly we got a goodie bag filled with beautiful bracelet that I'll show you later! // Showroomist saime kaasa kinkekoti, milles oli imeilus käevõru rinnavähi uuringute toetuseks, mis jõuab samuti peagi selle kollektsiooniga poodidesse.

I couldn't resist adding a photo of Mari-Liis' dog here on my blog. She got herself a petit brabancon griffon who is so cute that at first he got all attention to himself. // Ma ei suutnud kiusatusele vastu panna, et oma blogis näidata Mari-Liisi imearmast kutsikat. Ta võttis endale väikse Brabandi Grifooni, kes sai alguses (kuid ka hiljem) kogu showroomis viibijate tähelepanu endale.

Lookbook

Hi!
Lately some of you have been really interested in hearing how I describe my own style. I haven't answered you in comments because I have trouble describing the way I dress. It's hard to see the bigger picture since I don't have principles that I follow when it comes to choosing what I want to wear. Lookbook.nu is quite perfect to see my different looks at the same time. My first looks date back to 2012 when I had dark blonde hair, but a year later I stopped posting. This summer I posted one look, and I got surprisingly many followers in one night. I thought why not to keep posting there, since it's also great way to track my own development. You can find my account HERE.

So how would I describe my own style? 
My style varies a lot. I haven't set any boundaries to my outfits and I'm not afraid to try different styles. Comfort isn't the main aspect when I choose what I want to wear, so I'm willing to wear uncomfortable heels if the outfit needs. I like mixing prints and colours, but there will always be the days when I feel comfortable in a black (and white) outfit. In case I decide to wear something colourful, I'll choose something bold like cobalt blue, emerald green or purple. I seldom wear jeans, and I really enjoy wearing hats.

Keep your heart safe

Hi!  
During summer I'm really eager to cut my clothes shorter. I've made a couple of pairs of jeans into shorts and sometimes my t-shirts end up as tops. This year the same thing happened to my shorts that had a rolled up edge and I don't regret it a bit. Another thing that comes with summer is limiting myself to wearing black clothing. That is the reason why I forgot this awesome knitted top I bought during winter. After taking it home with me, I put it where I keep all my dark knits and told myself the weather must get warmer before I can use it. Now when it was finally warm enough, I completely forgot about my second-hand treasure and I'm so glad I found it before summer is completely over.

No colours

Hi! 
You haven't seen black and white photos on my blog for ages. Well, that changed today since I really wanted to show a couple of photos of my next outfit post but at the same time didn't want to give away any of the colours of this look. I have had my eye on sporty socks (HERE) from Front Row Shop for years, and I finally got them. I'll go to gym now and watch Breaking Bad for the rest of the evening. I hope you'll have an awesome Friday, and come back tomorrow to see the full outfit!

Camomile cleansing oil

Hi! 
I've received many requests to share my skincare routine, but it's really minimal this time of the year. I've noticed that during the summer I don't have any problems with skin so I've used only a couple basic products. I try to wash my face twice a day and sometimes use a moisturiser. I'll share with you the updated routine in Autumn, but today I wanted to talk about this magical product I use for removing all of my make-up before I cleanse my face. I don't know if anybody has the same problem, but mascara just doesn't come off from my lashes easily. I've done a lot of research to find a product that takes it off properly and I've finally found one.  

I came across this cleansing oil from Body Shop. At first, I used it only for my eyes because I didn't feel that my face could use any more oil, but now I've started to use it to take off all the make-up. It also has so good smell that it's a pleasure to use it. I usually use one pump, rub my hands together and then apply it on dry face. It's important to keep your face dry when applying it and only add some water later to get it off. The price is quite high (17.40 €) but I bought it when it was on sale, so I didn't pay that much. Now I don't imagine taking off my make-up with anything else so I'll probably buy the next one on full price.
