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”

(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”

The window to wear summer dresses in this unfortunate Estonian summer is so very tiny, but with a significant collection of summer dresses in my wardrobe, I’ve found that dressing for the office in the summer pretty much turns out the same as dressing for vacation. Even if it means chilly ankles and my leather jacket on me pretty much all day every day, I don’t have the heart to let my summer dresses wait for sunny weekends while I turn to monochrome office wear….Continue Reading “Not Your Average Office Dress”

I remember my first time at a secodn hand shop – one of my school friends took me to a shop she’d been to with her mom and we killed some time before her dance lesson. As a result, I bought a slightly cropped red-and-white roll neck jumper, which seemed to be the coolest thing ever, consider I was about 12 and had just spent a considerable amount of my pocket money on something that was my very own. That friend showed me loads more,…Continue Reading “Your Guide To All the Vintage In Tartu”

Instead of rambling on about the weather or my indecisive shopping habits, I wanted to make today’s post a bit different and list a few of the things that I’ve been loving recently. Or what have just made me a bit happier. What are the little things in your everyday lives? 1. Sweet potato. Seriously, I thought chickpeas were the wonderful filler ingredient to any salad or pasta that I didn’t want to put meat in, but since we’ve moved and I’ve had the long-awaited opportunity…Continue Reading “Oh, Honey!”
