I feel like I’ve gone to a deep sleep sometime in October and woken up mid-December, with Christmas on my mind and a thick blanket of snow covering the country as far as the eye can see. Although I’ve always considered autumn to be my least favourite season, then the first snowy days really made me miss the crisp (snowless) mornings, the somehow cosy colours of fallen leaves and the possibility of just about getting away with wearing a leather jacket.  My next posts will…Continue Reading “Remember Autumn?”

Every year the same scenario happens – come autumn and I’m throwing myself head first into the preppiest tops in my wardrobe, contemplating wearing headbands à la Blair Waldorf again and in general, dread the day I can’t justify “college-dressing” with actually going to university. As this year, when I’ve heavily stocked up on ruffled school girl shirts, while also turning back to old basics like this Bershka top. There’s no headbands in sight just yet, but I do admit that I almost wore this one…Continue Reading “Autumn Plaids”

… When you really can’t afford fancy new outfits on a part-time student budget (who’s just been away in Italy for a week). Fashion week dressing, even in Estonia, is a tricky business of its own, when any simple nice dress just won’t do and when you’re not one of those always-wear-black-and-look-fab girls, some thought needs to be put into this. Fashion week is somewhat an event to show your best (styled) self, so in an attempt to do so on a very uninspiring wardrobe,…Continue Reading “What To Wear To Fashion Week…”

Alustaks esmaspäeva suurte uudistega? Võib-olla mäletate, et kevadel proovisin Tartu Generaadios teha oma jutusaadet. Pärast kolme eetriosa jäi saade pisut toppama, aga mõte oma vestlussaatest elas edasi ja nüüd saan teile kõva häälega kuulutada, et mul on oma podcast!! Tundub uskumatu ja natuke hirmutav, aga Self Made saade on nüüd täiesti olemas iTunesis, Soundcloudis ja Facebookis! Igas saates on külaliseks mõni äge eesti naine, kes mingil moel innustab ka mind. Saate nimi Self Made tähistab üheltpoolt nii naiste isehakkamist ja enesekindlust kui ka saate iseloomu….Continue Reading “Self Made saade 1. osa!”

October rings in the season of pumpkin spice lattes and all things Halloween, but every year October also marks the fight against breast cancer an each year there’s more and more brands hopping on the bandwagon to show their support. As it is a topic close to my heart, I decided to put together a selection of fashion-y items with which you can show your support. For example, Lindex has a special pink collection for the 14th year in a row, with 10% of the…Continue Reading “Pink October”

The title of this post is thoroughly justified, because Venice really feels like a living, breathing postcard that sucks you in to its little alleys of narrow houses and gondola-filled canals. One thing that you don’t see on the postcards (or the planned Instagrams), however, are the thousands of tourists swarming over the Rialto bridge and making their way through said alleys towards St. Mark’s square. Even though Pinterest paints a pretty picture of a romantic Venice, the reality was quite overwhelming (funfact: there are…Continue Reading “Postcards From Venice”

With all the holiday posts going up here on my blog, you could almost forget the reality of falling leaves, finger-freezing-temperatures and the wailing wind outside. So, with a cup of tea in hand (I hope you have one too), I’m taking a break from 30degree Italy and taking you straight to 10degree Estonia where summer dresses are replaced by sweaters and afternoon Spritz’s with take-away chilli cappuccinos.  Naturally, as it’s got colder, I’ve taken my sweaters out of the closet more and more and…Continue Reading “A Welcome Break”

On to more Italian adventures, with Verona, the (un)official city of romance lined up! Although despite the fancy title, I didn’t particularly fall in love with it. It did provide some stunning views and gorgeous streets for some hand-in-hand lovey-dovey exploring, but having seen a fair few European old towns in my time, Verona didn’t really stand out too much. Of course our two days of walking were filled with oohing-and-aahing too, but instead of a full on city guide I decided to put together…Continue Reading “5 Tips For Verona”

Throwing it back to sunny Verona and one of my favourite off-the-beaten-path gems of our trip. Away from the tourist-filled old town, the Giusti Gardens provided a welcome break from the sightseeing, with the high cypress trees and slowly dripping fountains giving us some much-needed refuge from the hot sun too. The gardens are hidden from the street and you only find this haven of calm once you’ve passed through an archway of a pretty inexpressive building. They’re also surrounded by high walls on every…Continue Reading “Secret Gardens In Verona”

As promised, I’m dipping my toes to travel blogger waters and putting together three little city guides from my week in Italy. For some background information, we took the flight from Riga to Bergamo, in classic budget Ryanair style and then travelled across the country all the way to Venice, ticking off Verona and Padova along the way. In hindsight, a week was a bit too little time for so many cities, but I couldn’t help missing any of them, because when else am I…Continue Reading “A Mini Guide To Bergamo”
