Time for the sneaky bloggers’ favourite, a never before seen on Bowtie Diary, a peek into my (slightly tidied) everyday cross body. I decided to open the insides of a smaller bag, because if I’d started to empty my everyday shoulder bag, you’d see a nice flat lay of 3-year-old lip balms, old receipts and some rice grains, which somehow have managed to make home in the bottom of my bag. So, to spare you of the inevitable everyday “glamour” and me from the consequent…Continue Reading “What’s In My Bag?”

In case you happen to be in Tallinn on the 10th of April, then you’re all invited to another episode of Estonian Fashion Bloggers’ Flea Market! Bloggers open their closets, jewellery boxes and give their lovely past, present and future readers the chance to shop what they’ve seen and lusted after in numerous outfit posts. There’s also hairdressers to make everyone look extra nice and a few other little surprises! The Facebook event is here, so be there or be square!  I also feel like…Continue Reading “You’re All Invited!”

I feel like I’m at a real crossroads with my blog. It might be the exam stress, homesickness or my deep dark indie Spotify playlist on the background, but somehow I just feel that all the good ideas are not coming out of me and every post I plan ends up in the rubbish bin. I know that I want to do something differently, evolve to some new direction, but the sad thing is that I have no clue about what I want. There’s days…Continue Reading “Planning My Blogging 2k16”

I’ve knowingly stayed away from the Internet this past week. The thing is that my boyfriend finally came to visit me here in the Netherlands and after not seeing him for three months, I really didn’t want to spend time browsing the net. Cuddles over blogs any time! So instead we tested all the cafes in Utrecht, had an Ikea date in the style of 500 Days of Summer and cycled a lot. Today I sent him on the bus and with a little secret…Continue Reading “4 väga head blogipostitust”

Fashion blogging is hard work, even though it might seem like a walk in the park for all the non-bloggers out there. And fashion bloggers face a lot of blogging obstacles in their everyday blogging-lives. So if you’re a fellow blogger, let me know if I missed something from this list and if there’s anything else that you’ve encountered in your days of blogging, that needs to be brought to light. Also, bare in mind that I have written this post with a hint of…Continue Reading “#FashionBloggerProblems”

On a fine Sunday morning, when I enjoying my morning ritual of hot lemon water and a scroll-through on Instagram, I did something daring. I somehow ended up on one of those half-spammy accounts that promise to shoot your follower number into unbelievable heights for just a few dollars. You know, that kind of half-spammy account that has pictures advertising their “service” with a few dozen followers and follows thousands itself.   So I was sitting in the warm embrace of my duvet, half-tucked-in and…Continue Reading “Let’s Talk About… Buying Instagram Followers”

Who doesn’t love free education right? As a follow up to my first marketing-themed post, where I shared tips for creating kick-ass blog content (as heard in my Content Marketing lecture here at Hogeschool Utrecht), I am bringing you more marketing tips that I kind of took over into the blogging world again. Originally the lecture was about creating ideas for corporate marketing purposes, but blogging is pretty damn similar and the key principles definitely translate well. Here we go! Kellele siis tasuta saadud haridus…Continue Reading “7 Ways To Come Up With Blog Post Ideas”

Although back in Estonia I’m a journalism student, then here in Utrecht, my curriculum is more communication-based and a lot of it has to do with marketing. My favourite course is Content Marketing, after each lecture and tutorial I’m feeling really inspired, especially blog-wise. I feel that during the classes, I keep my blog in mind at all times, even though we’re talking about corporate marketing, and I like to translate everything I’ve learnt into blogging.  In one of the first lectures we discussed seven…Continue Reading “7 Marketing Tips For Kick-Ass Blog Content”
