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”

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”

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”

Being right on the border of Eastern and Central Europe, Poland is a country of contrasts and definitely a sight. I recently had the opportunity to write a travel article about Warsaw, the Polish capital, and having never been there, I had to rely on my thorough Googling skills and the experience of friends to put the guide together. What I didn’t expect to happen, was that I managed to sell Warsaw as a destination to myself also, so the better part of this summer was…Continue Reading “My Guide To Warsaw: What To See”

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”

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!”

(Eestikeelne allpool, nagu ikka!) About a month ago I handed in my BA thesis on the topic of bloggers covering branded content on their blogs and disclosing the posts in proper terms (or not, as I found out). Even though I’m planning a longer post about all things #sponsored, I decided to start introducing my schoolwork here on the blog with a little by-finding of my work – that’s an overview of all the different ways a blogger can make money. While Estonia is regarded as being…Continue Reading “How Bloggers Make Money”

From one white dress to another! Let me introduce you to this summer’s sweetheart piece – the midi dress! If you’re a girl living in the summer of 2017 and not yet own a midi dress, then may I suggest you steer away from the slinky minis and outdated maxis and give this look a try? Honestly, I’ve been sartorially as afraid of the midi cuts as I’ve been of lilac and baby blue, thinking they’re just something that don’t suit me, but guess what, once…Continue Reading “Midsummer Midi Dresses”

Estonian small towns have a certain charm, that I’m so attracted to lately. Maybe it’s because I’ve changed neighbourhoods in Tartu and now live among the cutest little wooden houses, almost forgetting that I’m a mere ten minutes from the centre. My goal for this summer is to take in as much of the small town charm as possible – starting with visits to the boyfriend’s parents in Pärnu, seeking cute cafés in Haapsalu, maybe hopping on an island and finally having a proper stroll…Continue Reading “Fancy Dress Days”
