THIS AND THAT


What's up? I survived from the terrible virus I had and now I am full of energy again! School work is killing thou at the moment but I hope I manage. Here is my outfit of the day. It is simply and laid back. I like dresses made of tricot since they feel so comfortable. It has also nice pattern red, blue and white stripes. I bought this one from England this summer and it has been one of my favorites since then. I actually called it a 5 minutes dress since it only took me 5 minutes to enter the store and leave it with this dress and yes I paid it of course. ;D Even though it  is simple I have heard a lot of compliments from that specific dress.
Converse sneakers are quite iconic shoes. I could safely say that almost have or have had a pair of Converse shoes. I remember I got my first ever Converse sneakers when I was about 12 or 13 years old. They were black and surprisingly they would still fit me because my shoe size is same as back then. Although I think I have thrown them into rubbish a long time ago. When I was a teen I was always looking for different shoe laces and styles to tie my shoes and I actually had Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas shoelaces in my black Converse sneakers.
Until next time!

STRAIGHT HAIR

 Hello friends, how are you? Unfortunately I have caught a virus and  I have been laying on a bed the entire day. It is not much fun but at least I have someone who takes care of me and makes me a cup of tea when I ask. The perks of being sick and helpless is to have someone who will take care of you. :D Anyhow this moment is historical since it is the first time in my blog's history when I have straight hair!  Look at me. It was windy day and my hair is a mess but yes it is straightened. I do not often straighten my hair since it is pretty bad for my hair but when I do I always hope that I did not have curls. Curly hair is a curse and everyone who says otherwise do not have curly hair. 
This skirt is new one. I bought it from London when I was there during Summer.  It has cute watermelon print on it. I had seen some diy pictures of similar skirts in Pinterest and when I found the skirt I had to have it. I was lucky because the first time I saw it in store there was not my size left anymore but luckily the same chain had few other stores in London and I managed to find it in my size. 


 I used to buy pretty clothes even though I could not find them in my size. I would always thought that probably I could fix them to my size or if they were too small I would consider losing weight etc. But honestly it never happened. Nowadays I do not do that anymore. If I find nice piece of clothing but it does not fit me I will not buy it because that would just be waste of money.  Do not buy anything if you cannot be 110% sure that you will fix that broken zipper in a fine vintage dress etc. It will just be waste of money and I know that lot of people buy stuff they do not actually fit in. But yeah that is that, I will not preach about it anymore. :D
I hope you all have wonderful day and you stay healthy!

I'M BACK!

Hi my friends! How are you doing? I have not post for awhile. At first I had to manage few days without internet since we change our operator and after that I have just procrastinated to post here. I have been taking outfit photos but somehow it was difficult for me to start posting again after few days break. Now I am back and I will continue to update my blog more frequently.
Obviously these outfit photos were taken during the summer. Today is typical Autumn weather here in Tallinn, it has rained the entire day so far. I would rather spend the day in my cozy bed than go to uni but what can I do when the duties are calling? Days like this it is nice to go back to warm summer days.
Summer is my favorite season of the year. I really dislike rain and cold weather. Too bad I live in Estonia. ;) I would really love to live somewhere where it does not get so cold during winters since I cannot manage the cold at all. Also summer clothing is so much nicer than winter wear and you do not have to wear five layers of clothing when going outside of your house. Summer clothing is much simpler!
What is your favorite season and how did you like the outfit? See you again soon!

5+1 TIPS HOW TO AFFORD DESIGNER PRODUCTS

Because I am student it does not mean that I cannot buy expensive designer bags or clothing. It might be more difficult and time consuming for me than what it could be if I would be working. I wanted to gather for you few saving tips that are useful for those who have limited amount of money to spend every month but still want to buy designer products or make any kind of saving. Let me know how helpful these tips were for you!

1. Determine what are you saving up for
Firstly you need to know what product/thing you are saving up for and how much money you would actually need. It is also important that you make yourself clear that which things are more important to you than the designer item. Is eating out something which is more important to you or gym membership? You could cook by yourself or exercise at home or outdoors. But is it really something you are ready to give up for to get that designer item you like? So you have to choose which things are worthier and which are not.
2. Calculate your monthly earnings and expenses
You need to put down how much money you receive every month and what is left after necessary expenses such as rent, utilities, phone bill, food, etc. If there is left something after those necessary expenses you are already doing great. Then you must decide how much money you are ready to save up every month to get that item you like. If your already in the negative side you have to be ready to cut down some of that expenses. For example, could you manage with a little slower internet? Or would there be a way to consume little less water?

3. Pay attention to what you eat
Do you prefer eating out instead of cooking yourself? Start learning to cook because it is not difficult to make a nice dish for few euros which you can eat for couple of days. It is really that simple but people do not usually realize how much money they spend eating out. Make meal plans as well. That way you will know before you go to store what food products you will need and maybe can check up different grocery store websites before hand and plan where to do your shopping based on what will be the cheapest option. Of course you need to dedicate your time for that. Consider buying the cheapest products in the store because I usually do not notice the difference between cheapest or the most expensive spaghetti.
4. Pay attention to what you buy
What kind of toilet paper do you have at home or do you have habit of going impulsive shopping to those inexpensive fashion chain-stores? Do not do that. The money you spend in that store is money you could have saved so you better stop. And what comes to toilet paper example pay attention what everyday life products such as toilet paper, cleaners, shampoos, etc you buy. Those are things you need but what difference it would make to your quality of life if you would buy the cheapest products?

5. Possibilities to earn extra money
What would be your possibilities to earn extra money? Would you be ready to do part-time work? or maybe some babysitting your neighbor's kids or any other odd job you could possible do? Think of your options of earning extra money. Maybe the money you earn monthly is not enough in the first place. But my recommendation is to stay away for loans and gambling. That will only lead you in a bad situations.
+1 Work hard and try always your best at school. Dedicate your time for learning and strive for that higher education. Do not drop out and get that university degree. The more educated you are the higher your salary will be in the future and then you do not have to fear of making the ends meet.

AUTUMN IS COMING

Hi again! Here is some more outfit pictures for you. I feel the Autumn is coming the weather gets colder and rainier and the evenings and nights are not full of sunlight anymore. I am excited nonetheless since next week is my final week at work and then I will be continuing my studies at the university. I am excited about what the future holds for the upcoming year!
And I did not know why I was wearing sunglasses so I took them of. :D
I really love the pattern of this dress and the colors. It is rare to find clothes which have darker red, turquoise and green mixed up together. In my mind they look nice together.
These outfit pictures were taken right before sun went down and I love the greyish lightning in these photos. It makes me look very pale thou but I think it suits my today's outfit quite nicely.
I must say that I hate bugs, spiders, mosquitos and any kind of species which have six legs or more or do not have legs at all. Well, I do not hate them but I am terrified and scared of them so much that I am not even able to kill a fly. It might seem stupid but that is real struggle which I have to face almost everyday. #firstworldproblems And yet I think these beetle shaped earrings are maybe the coolest ones I own. :D Unfortunately they are a bit heavy for me so I use them only occasionally. But aren't they just lovely?
Happy weekend everyone, sleep well and long and give yourself a hug since you managed through a long week!

SUNNY DAY

Hi everyone, how are you doing? I am back with more outfit photos this time. Although the lightning this time does not impress anyone but bare with me. :D This dress is one of my favorites but in this part of the world where I live it is such a short period of time when I can actually wear it, it is a pity. I could wear it with a cardigan when it is cold but the dress has to be tied around your neck and it would just look stupid imo. First world problems is what they say.
I often feel very insecure to wear tight clothing as almost everyone I think. I always worry about my stomach to stick out too much but looking at these pictures I think I look fitter than I actually am. I have no idea how I did it but somehow I managed. ;) It is silly to feel insecure about oneself, as far as I know nobody really pays attention for somebody else's body shape. At least I am not interested.
 This handbag is hands down my used one. I really like smaller bags where I can with my wallet, keys, phone and maybe one lipstick because that is basically everything one needs. the bag is just the right size and color is my favorite too. I have so much colorful clothing that it is easy to match this pink with almost anything. Also almost everyone of my jackets and coats are simple colors black, beige, blue so in the winter it is nice popup color.
 Picnic in a park is nice summertime activity and it is what happened after taking these pictures. I really love eating outside in summer. Especially breakfast outside is one of my favorite things to start a morning weather permitting of course. How did you like my outfit? Leave it in the comment section.

ON WEDNESDAYS WE WEAR PINK

So in case someone is wondering why roses are blooming this time of the year, these outfit photos are from my trip to England in June so they are bit old but I thought they where still worth showing here. It has been crazy couple of days at work so this outfit really suits in the theme. I love it how the colors really match with the roses in the background. Simply outfit put full of colors.
Really awkward arm pose is something we all need, don't we, eh? I do not know if you have noticed, probably yes, that I am very awkward in front of the camera. I could use a tip or two from professional. From the camera perspective my outfits always look different than when I try them on in front of the mirror. It is quite interesting how different you actually can look in the pictures and when you see your reflection from mirror.  Okay I am not sure anymore if that was non-sense talking with myself but better stop. :D
I must say that I am speechless at the moment but I wanted to send you all some pink flowers in a form of these pictures. Have a great Wednesday everyone!

5+1 TIPS TO FIRST TIME LONDON TRAVELERS

5 + 1 helpful tips from me to first time London travelers. Those who have already visited the city these might not be so new information. I have traveled to London many times and also spend one summer there so this post is based on my personal experiences. Photos are from my last trip to London. I did not do much of that touristic stuff anymore since I have seen the most popular attractions quite a few times already. And I do not have proper outfit photos but two of my outfits you can see in the images down below.
1. Have a walk tour instead of hop-on hop-off buses
I would not recommend anyone to take any kind of tourist bus in any city. Best way to get to know the city is to explore it yourself walking, then you can stop to take pictures or maybe change directions when ever you like. I like to recommend route which starts from Piccadilly Circus continuing towards Trafalgar square and maybe you like to have a little look inside the National Gallery. From there you want to walk towards Westminster where you can see the famous Big Ben, Palace and Westminster Abbey. After that you want to continue to the direction of Buckingham Palace. It is pretty nice walk if it is sunny day and it includes many tourist attractions. But unfortunately Tower bridge, Tower of London and St.Paul's Cathedral are in the opposite direction.
2. Do not spend your money on overpriced tourist attractions
Places such London Eye or Madame Tussauds etc are really not worth of the money you spend buying a ticket or the time you spend queuing to them. Or if that is really something you want to do well go for it but I could not recommend such places. Not to mention that London is full of free entrance museums such as National Gallery, British Museum, Museum of London, Natural History Museum etc. I am sure that you can find many that you find interesting. And what comes to good view's from town, there is two places that I could recommend. The Monument is quite nice although it has entrance fee which is few pounds. My favorite is Primrose Hill it is completely free and gorgeous especially when it is dark outside. I used to go there quite often just to sit there, watching the view and listening to music. Having a moment with myself. It is worth the visit if you ever go to London.
3. Places to go shopping
There is three major places to go shopping. First one is of course Oxford street. It is full of different chain stores such as H&M, Topshop, Benetton, Urban Outfitters etc. and different department stores Selfridges, John Lewis, etc. and some of the stores have multiple shops in the street. It is quite nice place to go shopping if you are into chain stores but it is super crowded especially in the afternoon. Portobello road in Notting Hill is another good place to go shopping. There is plenty of antique stores and little shops. In my opinion thou the Portobello Market which is on Sundays is overrated. But that is again my opinion and might not be a popular one. The best place however to go shopping is Camden. It is full of unique little stores and unique people and it is one of my favorite places in London. There is also a lot of street art so if you are into spotting graffiti that is the place you want to go.
4. Oyster card is must have
The distances is London can be quite long and you must be out of your mind to drive in the city. So public transportation will be your bestfriend during your time in London.With Oyster card you can move around easily by bus or tube. Buses are cheaper but of course it takes longer time to get where you want to go. That is why I prefer tube. I love the transportation system in London it is so easy to commute from one place to another!
5. Take a walk in park
London is full of green areas. Go to any park and have a lunch there. You'll be amazed  of what you can find in there. There is so many different gardens and beautiful spots and animals. The two most famous one's are Hyde park and Regent's park. If I have stayed in Hotel like last time it is usually next to Hyde park close to Oxford street. In my opinion it is quite unusual to have such big parks in a metropolis like London is.
+1 Your full London experience will not be completed unless you have eaten fish and chips. My favorite fish and chips place is located in Camden and it is called Hook. They serve the best fish and chips I have ever tasted with different sauces. So it is not so traditional but so delicious! They have also other things in their menu if you are not so into the idea but I would definitely recommend the restaurant for everyone.

HAAPSALU'S OUTFIT

Here is my outfit photos from the trip to Haapsalu which I talked about in the latest post. Go check out it if you are interested. This summer is really hectic and I am sorry that I have not post for a week again. I have to say that I have spent last week in London and I did not take my computer with me. I might make a post of something London related but I do not have reasonable outfit photos because I was too busy to socialize. London is probably my favorite place in the world and I travel there every year. I have also spend one summer there working and I have few friends there to. So it is close to my heart. :) This time I did not really went to see all the touristic attractions since I have seen them quite few times before but if you have something you want me to write about London or anything, feel free to share it in comment section. But this is a promise: I will start posting more often when I go back to uni in Autumn.
To the outfit photos. I had to have it in the Haapsalu train station because look at it, it is soo beautiful. Maybe sneakers were not the best option when it come to this outfit but they where sure quite nice to walk around the town.
I really love the pattern in the skirt. I also have a scarf and a handbag with the exact same pattern in them since I love it so much. It is Ted Baker's in case you are wondering. ;)
It is truly a picturesque venue. How did you like the outfit?

DAY IN HAAPSALU

Not so long ago I visited Haapsalu so I thought that I could make a small post about it. Haapsalu is quite small town in Estonia but it is perfect for a day trip in summer. We were blessed with good weather, in the morning it was hot and sunny and in the evening it was a bit cloudy but still warm. It was my first time in the town and probably will not be the last.
Haapsalu castle is something you cannot miss when going to Haapsalu for two obvious reasons: firstly it is so big and secondly it is in the middle of the town. Although some of it was destroyed during ww2, it was still a pretty cool place to visit. I even managed to climb to the bell tower even though I am scared of heights! 
We had a lunch in lovely restaurant called Dietrich. I have to say that it was the best restaurant I have been in Estonia so far. The food was great and tasty and definitely when I go back to Haapsalu I am going to eat there again!
Some pasta and pesto for me
and some fish for him.
The whole city is so idyllic especially during summer.
We visited Haapsalu railway station and railway museum, it's funny because there is not actual railway system in Haapsalu and you cannot get there by train. :D They used to have railway but I think during soviet times it was  destroyed and people stole the tracks? correct me if I am wrong cause that's what I have heard at least.
Anyway the railway station is so picturesque and pretty. I guess it would not have been preserved so well if it would have served  its purpose during soviet times.
And of course there was old trains but one was not allowed to hope in which was pretty sad. :(  Anyhow if you have a chance to visit Haapsalu definitely do it. I was surprised by the town and how pretty it was!
