In one form or another, I’ve always done an end-of-the-year post. So keeping up with tradition I just can’t go into the new year without wrapping it up here (only to plan all things better and bigger for the next year). This year has been a whirlwind both personally and globally, but eventually we’ll remember the good things (and because I still really like the idea of an anti bucket list), let’s focus on these here too. So this year, to name a few personal accomplishments, I moved in with…Continue Reading “Wrapping Up 2016 (In Velvet)”

Instagram can be a right bitch sometimes. Please tell me it’s the same for you? Instagram võib vahel korral mõrd olla. Palun öelge, et keegi teist on samas olukorras? (Eestikeelne jutu jaoks peate korralikult alla kerima, sattusin oma kirjutamisega hoogu.) The truth is that I’ve been seriously putting too much thought and effort into all things Instagram, so I figured that if I type out all my thoughts on the subject, I’d get some sense into it. Hopefully this long chatty post puts me to ease…Continue Reading “Overthinking Instagram”

Perhaps the title of this post a bit too trivial, but a hashtag with over 1,5 million posts on Instagram has to have some truth behind it, reminding us, in between countless pictures of peonies and pancakes, to turn our attention to the little things in everyday life. Such as photos printed out on paper, instead of scrolling past them on screens. Or books, forever managing to suck me in to those small universes between two covers, if I only bother to pick one up….Continue Reading “Live The Little Things”

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!”

This post could either be a guidebook to going through with your semester abroad or my own super condensed diary (bowties excluded) of five months spent away from my family and friends, living a whole new life in a whole new place. Either way, I want to share this experience with you and I want to have one specific point to look back to and instantly be taken back to the city of Utrecht in The Netherlands in the autumn of 2015. Studying Firstly, why…Continue Reading “My Erasmus Experience”

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”

How many of you make a promisingly big new year’s resolutions list and then get cross with themselves in about a month for not sticking to it? Two of my favourite bloggers – Olivia Purvis and Emma Gannon – decided to ditch the get-better promises and instead, made long lists of what they have achieved during this past year. I can’t agree with them more, because even though resolutions about working out and being healthy (which I will definitely make) are nice and all, they’re…Continue Reading “The Anti-Bucket List”

I have to be honest and confess that “America’s Top Model” type reality shows are my absolute secret pleasure. I love to comment on everything and everyone going through the screen, especially when watching it with friends and just slaying everything! So when I had the opportunity to take part in the recording of the Estonian version of that, I was excited!  Of course I was secretly hoping that I’d get the role of a super judgemental fashion critic who has to help decide which…Continue Reading “How I Went On A Reality Show”

Although the weather has been more spring-like than wintry and things are far away from a Christmas spirit, then my unbearable homesickness and the fact that December has already lasted for a whole nine days, fill my head with all kinds of Christmassy thoughts. I’ll be home from the 20th of December, which gives me a whole three days before and three during Christmas, plus that weird bit between the holidays and New Year’s to drown myself head-to-toe to all things Christmas. And I have…Continue Reading “My Christmas Wish-To-Do List”
