BAMBI & OTHER STORIES...


Ma polegi vist teile jõudnud rääkida oma eelmise aasta patustamistest… Aga jagatud mure on pool muret eks? Või midagi sellist. Ühesõnaga need, kes mind Instagrammis jälgivad on kindlalt näinud, et lisaks sellele et armastan kohutavalt igast krõpse ja friikaid (BTW! enam mitte niii vägaa!!!), on üheks vist suurimaks paheks käekotid. 
Ning nagu õige addict ikka, valisin endale ikka eriti hea kraami patustamiseks - Givenchy Bambi koti ning natuke hiljem liitus Chloe Drew. Ja ma ütlen, et ma absoluutselt ei kahetsee ka! Kuna nüüdsest olen ametlikult trenni-tegijate nimekirjas, siis mahub kogu mu krempel ära ideaaalselt Givenchy’sse ja rohkemgi veel. Plus Chloe mis noh.. jahm. Ühe käekoti-gurmaani täielik nõrkus. Nagu jutud külapeal käivad, siis whats the point of earning money, when you cannot spend it?

SHOCKING PINK


Puhkus on läbi ja kuna nüüd ei saa ma mitte enam päevast päeva veereda suures T-särgis ringi pean vaikselt mõtlema, mis edasi.. Kuna ma olen viimasel ajal sellise mõtteviisi omaks üritanud võtta, et kui ma miskit juba paar kuud ei kanna lükkan ta ikkagi karpi nimega ‘’kirbukas’’, siis üritan ma igapäev leida oma kapist erinevaid kombinatsioone. Ma tean, ma tean… Ka mulle on öeldud, et ‘’misajsa? sa paned selle tööle selga?’’, jep panen küll! Sest kuna suurem osa valgest ajast oleme me ju tööl, siis milleks ma ostan asju, kui ma neid ei kanna? Seega jah! Minu riided on kindlapeale kandmiseks, ning üritan igast riideid nii palju kombineerida kui võimalik. 
Kuna mulle on jälle ‘’sümpaatseks’’ saanud see eriti erk roosa, siis tänu WWD ja teistele veebiajakirjadele sain ma aru, et ei ole ma ainuke kes vaibib sellist roosat ja väga palju korraga. Sest pink on pink on täitsa IN! Algava kevad/suve üks trende! Kui te ei usu mind siis Celine, Balenciaga ja Valentino ometi ju ei valetaks. Plus need khuulid naised all pool, kes rokivad kärtsuvat roosat nagu poleks homset. Ja samuti ka mina oma H&M seeliku ja dressikaga, mis kindlalt näevad soojema ilmaga koos veel päevavalgust!

/ My vacation is over and the realisation that I cannot wear a massive T shirt all day long, is hitting oh-so-hard… Really need to rethink my wardrobe for sure. Also I am trying to adapt the idea that if I have not worn it for few months then it has ‘’for sale’’’ written all over it. That’ s why i am trying think different combos all the time as well.. I know, i know… I’ve been told as well ‘’ what you are wearing that for work?’’ Yes! Why not we spend so much time at work why buy things just so you could hang them in your closet? Doesn't’ t make any sense… So yes, if I buy something I’ll wear it. 
And once again I like that truly annoying extra bright pink, and thanks to WWD and other online magazines, I’ve come to realise that I am not the only one! Pink on pink is so IN! And in fact it is one of the biggest trends for upcoming S/S! So if you think I’m talking nonsense, then take a look at Celine, Balenciaga and Valentino! Plus also those really cool women down below!

/ Hey-hey! I am totally on a vacation-mode. Thou a week seems like wayy too little, but I feel like it is perfect as I can plan my vacay in March when I am going to US againn!! Which I cannot wait! Plus like a grown up I am trying to get a hold on my expenses and try to find a place to sell my clothes so that they’d get a new and loving owner rather than sitting on the bottom of my self. Plus I am ahead of my new years resolutions, pretty much rocking the gym everyday, which I am super proud of - guys, it took me 3 years of pep-talk to get me back on track, so applause would be okay. And if that was not enough since then I’ve managed to get two people into exercise as well, kind a staring a movement right there aren’t I. 

But about my outfit. As sometimes are a bit more tomboyish than others plus it is rather cold outside (STILL!), I tried to dress a bit more quirky. Slip-dress + band T shirt is so old news, yet slip-dress + band T shirt + net-shirt. Well that’s another level! Plus if you add the bikerboots it pretty much saves you from being frozen AND you look cool.

PS! I added the search box underneath the page so you could search my old posts and reminisce! Love, xxx

Hei-hei! Olen täielikult puhkuse lainel. Paar päeva olen üritanud ‘’põigelda’’ sellest tundest, sest tean et nädal puhkust on nagu kerge õrritamine, saad ennast nö käima ja juba suundud töösse tagasi. Aga õnneks on mul juba Märtsi kuusse lükatud üks mõõõõnus USA trip, seega on see nädal hetkel täielikult tegelikult ära kulunud. Vaikselt üritan suure inimese kombel ka oma kulusid ja tulusid (hkhkm riided) majandada, ehk et üritan järjekordselt leida mõnda toredat kirbukat, kus enda riietele uut omaniku leida - kui keegi teab/teeb või korraldab! Hüüa - üks poodlemisprobleemiga Liisa sooviks väga oma kraami letile laotada! 
Lisaks meeletule kraamimisele on viimase aja üheks suurimaks saavtuseks olnud ka trennis käimine. Ma olen täiega uhke enda üle (ennast kiitmast ma ei väsi! höhö), sest 3 aastat hooguvõtmist on tõesti vilja kandnud and I am doooinggg it! Ühesõnaga panin lõpuks enda sõnade taha teod, ehk milleks vinguda, kui ise selle kallal vaeva ei näe? Niisiis, tugevam tervem ja miks mitte ka trimmis mina - siit ma tuleeen! Ja stating the obviouse juuube hea tunne on küll pärast trenni, hetke seisuga olen suutnud samale lainele meelitada veel kaks inimest, nii et rewarding on see kogu protsess igatepidi.

Aga riietusest. Viimasel ajal viskab sisse sellist parajat tomboy teemat ja kuna on ka parajalt külm siis mängin ma asjasse ka sellise ‘’praktilise vimka’’. Ehk et slip dress x bändi T särk on täiega vana teema… slip dress x bändi T särk x võrkpluus - !!!. Lisaks sellele ei tee paha ka muidugi üks ilmastikukindel talvesaabas aka bikerboots seega üks megalihtne ahh-ma-ei-viitsi-mõelda riietus ongi sündinud!


BTW! Lehekülje all keskel on nüüdsest ilutsemas ‘’SEARCH’’ kast, mille üle ma olen ilmatuma uhke, sest see costum template siin ei tahtnud ühtegi võõrkeha omaks võtta + ei lasknud mul miskipärast postituste ajalugu panna ega midagi. Ühesõnaga väiksed rõõmud, mis loodetavasti teevad selle keskkonna siin hõlpsamalt käsitletavamaks.

THE DOT DOT DOT

(küsin andeks, mu Eesti lugejad, kiiruga tehtud postitus - ainult Ingliskeeles :( )

It’s been a strange few weeks. I say weeks, ‘cos you might have noticed that I’ve been M.I.A for quite a while. I’ve been feeling like I was in a rut and it ultimately came down to me needing a break from, well - thinking. I literally felt that I haven’t had a weekend that I enjoyed and didn’t have to work (work on different projects) for… lets say if you can’t remember when, then you need to change something. Even Christmas this year was soo exhausting that I was about to cancel it all together. 

Anyways, time away from here reconnecting with myself and my thoughts has given me the motivation and energy that I needed to get back into this blogging and well, everything. Also I don’t know is it because its kind the first month in every year or what, but it seems kind a the ‘’norm’’ for me, last year I blacked out in January as well for a while… I think sometimes you just need to think and reboot. But now I am better and feel that I can again share with you. Btw! Did you know? I literally pulled myself off the couch and away from chips and started hitting the gym - it is kind of an amazing achievement, considering I’ve been promising that for almost three years? I was pretty sure that I’d reach 10years with this tradition. Yay me! + As I had last Friday off from my job I started with quite few side projects that are looonnnggg overdue. So far so good. Pretty much can say that I am soooooo ahead of my ‘’new year - new me bs/resolutions’’. Yep, I am proud!

But. About this outfit, as I said I had loads of things overdue, well casein point - My Christmas outfit. Yes. Awkward. But thankfully I can say this isn’t a holiday season dress at all, it is all-year-round-dress, so you can wear it whenever. Seems a bit wayy too preppy at first but don’t be afraid to pair it with Converse or high-top black Vans, this dress can handle anything! Also it is now available at H&M sale! so hurryhurryyyy!

THE 16

Hei-hei! Täna jäin parajalt ajahätta, siis jätan hoopistükis selle teksti inglise keelseks! Soz!

2016. what to be thankful for..

… to my new job. It has been really a learning point starting with something quite different than I am used to, but I am thankful for what I have and what I’ve learned. Everyday seems like a new adventure, bringing loads of joy and excitement. I truly feel that I am in the right place!

… to my new friends! And old! Literally every year when I have my birthday party at my summer cottage I realise how lucky I am. Everyone comes together and we just enjoy the night like there was no tomorrow (or literally every time we get together - its just a blast!). You guys rock my world <3 font="">

… obviously for this blog and YOU GUYS! I am happy that I have this creative corner here to experiment and share my thoughts and creativeness. Literally the best decision that I made 8 years ago. Cannot be more proud. Even though I had a small set back in 2015, when I was doing my final year in uni and didn't post pretty much anything here - you are still here! 
Seeing analytics that you are eager to see my new posts - checking this page - it makes my heart melt! LITERALLY could not have done this without you! Love you and promise that I’ll try to be better than I was and evolve and come up with new and exciting stuff.

… the realisation. That I am on a right track. I just need to be more aware and hungry to learn and in-charge like for example - I am in-charge of my day, so if I have time to complain about how I was not able to do this and that. Then yes, it’s in my hands to change that. Mostly the usual, like read all those  books that I've bought, finally watch the huuudge list of movies that I've always wanted to watch and start watching something other than US Office or Friends - cos I pretty much have seen them like 10000 times... Need to move on!
I truly feel that this year I need to kind a look back what 2016 was and make some changes, In my routines and how I treat myself… which brings me to my next point…

… the knowledge. Not the book-worm-type. The knowledge that I have from living on this planet for 24 years - in my body, it does not seem a lot, but I’ve figured out what works for me and what doesn’t. I understand now how my body works, and therefore need to be one of those ‘’diet-starts-in-2017’’ type of girls.. although  change the word diet into workout! I need to take care of myself, and as I said before - I am in-charge of myself, so I have only myself to blame for everything that I do to myself.

… the opportunities  Last year threw a lot of good opportunities towards me and I can’t be happier. Blog-wise I was blessed to be invited to so many different events and collabs that I wouldn't even have dreamt about few years back. Also starting with my own magazine, which at the moment is on hold so that me and the team could solve some creative difficulties, but still I am so proud to have a team who keeps me grounded and yet is helping me create whatever comes to mind.
Oehh, and even though some of them were quite challenging I feel that everything is a learning curve.

 … the bf. Well, I know that I don’t give him as much credit as he needs - ‘cos surprise, surprise, he is behind all of my photos. Can’t think of anyone who is willing to go for that extra mile and go through with every crazy idea that I have in my head, being one of my biggest supporters and pushing me to be better at everything that I do. Yes, sometimes You annoy the crap out of me - yet I wouldn't be here without you! Thanks for being the rock that I need bb!

… that the year is finally over. Literally the end of last year kind a shook me. Everything started to fall apart a bit due to being so restless and rushing to get things done + wanting everything to happen right away. Good things take time. No need to panic. 2017 is going to be more calculated yet I will try to relax more and see the bigger picture. Sometimes all it takes is a day off, to get things back and rolling!

So to recap the past year here are some of my fav posts!

JANUARY

- the month I decided I want more tattoos.. did them, proud of the!. Also as last year I was sceptical of this new year - new me bs (last years post is HERE!), so I went straight to making my dreams come true... Planned a trip to NY, fell in love with it!


FEBRUARY

- visited NY. Came back like a  changed woman. Decided to start again with few interesting projects like art directing a magazine.



MARCH

APRIL

MAY

- finally decided that I can change things for myself, nobody else can. Took a major decision and changed jobs. Thinking back I don't regret it, was a right move. Also bf graduated uni, so kind a was the beginning of grown up life for us.

JUNE


- a fun but cold beginning of summer. We made loads of changes to this page here and started to realise what I want content wise and how I want my photos to look like. No more blank white walls (only when the weather sucks!) and so on...


JULY


- July was one of the busiest months for me, travelled for work then came back to celebrate loads and loads of birthdays, did some personal projects for restaurants and museums.

AUGUST

- my birth month! Super exciting times. Didn't have time to rest at all. Planned my birthday party which was Russian inspired - music, food - everything. Also a pretty important month blog-wise. Visited loads of events and met so many cool people.

SEPTEMBER

- after a heavy start of 2016. This was finally a first month that I had 3 days for myself. Something that I didn't have for a while. I visited Latvia for few days just to relax and have time for myself, also finally settled in to my new job!

 

OCTOBER

NOVEMBER

- in November it was again time for loads of fashion events. Most memorable due to colour-scheme was of course Kenzo x H&M, which by far had the best IT-pieces. At the end of the month I went to Milan to have a week long getaway which was really a nice break. When I came back, it was time to start preparing for Christmas and all that jazz!

 

DECEMBER


- the Christmas month. Probably the hardest month of this year. I don't know why but the culmination  towards Christmas is always so exhausting and emotionally draining. Loads of plans that did not work out and had to be cancelled. This past year has been everything - I've been sad, scared, tired, super happy and most of all grateful. Every obstacle is good for something. I am super lucky to be surrounded my so many good friends and especially family so bring it on 2017. I think it is only uphill from here on out! Thank you for following me this year, I wish you all a Happy New Year!
