Oh tere kõigile! Mulle tundub, et ma pole kuidagi väga ammu ühte eesti keelset postitust teinud ja tunnen, et ma võlgnen selle kõigile oma eesti keelsetele lugejatele, kes meile terve eelmise aasta kaasa elasid.
Kohe kindlasti ei ole ma ära kadunud, kui siis ainult veidikene vähem oma isiklikust elust ja meie otsestest tegemistest kirjutanud. Rohkem olen teinud outfiti postitusi, niiet miks mitte teiega natukene muudel teemadel jutustada. Vahepeal on tunne, et ei oskagi enam eesti keeles kirjutada, kuna kasutan eesti keelt igapäevaselt aina vähem. Jah, kindlasti mõtlete, et mul ju Laura kellega me koguaeg koos chillime, aga kahjuks me ei näe väga tihti. Tavaliselt ühe korra nädala peale, sest lihtsalt ei viibi samal ajal kodus. Niiet kujutage siis ette, kui palju ma eesti keeles rääkida saan. Me siiski elame koos, aga meie erinevate graafikute ja eraelude tõttu ei veeda me enam nii palju aega koos. Aastaga oleme nullist ülesse ehitanud lisaks tööle ka oma sõprusringkonna. See ei tähenda, et ma oma eesti semusid ei igatseks, aga oleme mõlemad suhteliselt õnneseened, et saime selliste inimestega siin elades tuttavaks.
Lõpuks peale aastat on saanud London kuidagi väga koduseks ja ei oskaksi kusagil mujal vist elada. Olenemata ummistunud metroodest tipptunnil, pikkadest teekondadest, et kuhugi jõuda ja aeglastest asja ajamisest, sest ju koguaeg peab mingite asjade järgi ootama. Nüüdseks ma isegi ei seisa enam eskalaatorite peal kui metroosid vahetan vaid üritan kiirelt ühest sihtpunktist teise jõuda, et peaks seal maa-all võimalikult vähe viibima. Olen õppinud, et kui reede õhtul välja minnes ei leia sa omale lauda kusagil baaris või restoranis on see täiesti normaalne ja oma energiat vihastamise alla panna on mõtetu. Tuleb ennast pigem paremini planeerida ja omale asjad igale poole ära bronnida. Siiski elab Londonis peaaegu 9 miljonit inimest, niiet kujutage siis seda tsirkust siin ette.
Näiteks selleks, et ma ennast perearsti nimekirja saaksin läks mul ka aega täpsemalt viis nädalat ja selleks, et aja saaksin veel omakorda kaks. Minule on see nii võõras, kui asjad võtavad nii kaua aega. Aga ega muud varianti ei ole, kui lihtsalt enda harjumused vastavalt keskonnale ringi muuta.
Ärge saage minust valesti aru, ma ei vingu vaid lihtsalt annan teile ülevaate, kuidas siin asjad käivad. Olen ise selle kõigega juba ammu kohanenud.
Ainuke asi, millega me mõlemad veel harjuma vist peame on elamine koos endast täiesti erinevate inimestega. Me mõlemad Lauraga oleme suhteliselt chillid ja layed back inimesed. Enamasti leplikud ja kui me parasjagu just millegi üle kohutavalt ei naera, siis ka vaiksed. Aga ainuke omadus, mis meile inimeste juures ei meeldi on lohakus ja kui inimesed ei oska korda pidada. Ma arvan, et me oleme oma praeguses korteris teinud varsti kokku 20 koosolekut, kuidas asjad olla võiksid ja koostanud erinevaid graafikuid ja liste, mida kõik võiksid järgida kellel pole loogilist mõtlemist. Aga no ega kellele pole mõistust antud, siis need koosolekud ja nimekirjad on kasutud. Minu jaoks on teistega koos elamine samuti midagi uut, aga enda järelt koristamine aga mitte. See vahel ajab ikka vihale küll kui elad koos inimestega, kes ei viljele samu harjumusi. See vist on minu jaoks ainukene miinus Londonis elamise juures. Aga no ega kõike korraga ka ei saa, niiet vaatame, mis tulevik toob.
Usun, et teid huvitab ka, mis meie töökohtadest saanud on ja millega tegeleme. Laura ajab oma asju ühes Post Production Companys juba detsembrist. Mul oli selle üle nii hea meel, et ta finally saab oma eriala poole liikuma hakata. Ega ma rohkem sellest rääkida ei oskagi, sest ma pole selles asjas väga ekspert. Ühesõnaga she is doing good, mis on peamine! Keda huvitab rohkem, siis võite talle vabalt kirjutada.
Mina töötan endiselt H&M's kuid eelmisest nädalast olen stilistika manager, hetkel küll selle suve lõpuni, aga vaatame, mis peale augustit saab. Nimelt saadeti üks manager Kolumbiasse marketit avama ja mulle pakuti, et kas ma oleks nõus tema positsiooni senikauaks ülevõtma. Muidugi tuli see pakkumine mulle nagu välk taevast, aga võtsin selle katsumuse rõõmuga vastu ja nüüd olen antud kohal juba nädal aega tegutsenud.Aasta aega tagasi poleks ma osanud arvata, et töötan ühes maailma suurimas H&M'is stilistika managerina, aga no vot just seda ma teen. Kindlasti ei taha ma öelda, et see kõik on lillepidu, aga at the end of the day olen ma olen õnnelik, et saan seda teha just siin ja õppida nii paljudelt inimestelt. Tahaksin teile hinge peale panna, et dream until you make it! Ma pole veel kaugeltki seal, kus ma olla tahan, aga I don't complain either.
Loodan, et saite väikse ülevaate meie Londoni tegemistest ja kellel on küsimusi, siis inbox me! Olge mõnusad ja räägime varsti!
This weekend happened to be one of the warmest ones yet this year, the maximum was 26 degrees. Sounds amazing, right? On Sunday it really felt like summer, we were wearing shorts and tank tops and still felt hot. This kind of weather doesn't happen very often in London so you need to enjoy it to the maximum when it happens. We spent most of our weekend in Greenwich which is one of my favourite parts in London. Big park, cute cafes, markets and street musicians who just make the atmosphere so enjoyable. We finished our Sunday with the dinner in Franco Manca and captured few photos on the way. We usually don't spend our weekends together with Laura so we really made most of it this time.
I decided to wear my checked dress with sporty socks and silver sandals. The checked print is taking over the world lately. So if you want to keep up with the trends be sure you get yourself a piece of it this season.

Spring has found it's way to London. This Sunday me and Ruts did our last photo shoot together because she will be moving away from the UK next week and this is the end of our journey. Really gonna miss this one here.
But anyways I don't want to write a lot this time because it's all about the pictures what we took. I went for all nude outfit. Playing with baby pink shadows and light beige stilettos. I added my oversized blazer with a hoodie underneath to make it little bit more tomboy.
During the second day of Tallinn Fashion Week, we saw collections from Monton, Diana Arno, Goldtime, Triinu Pungits and Embassy of Fashion which includes designs from Aldo Järvsoo, Riina Põldroos and Ketlin Bachmann.
I think my overall favorites from the second day were Riina Põldroos and Monton. And of course I need to mention the jewelry collection from Goldtime. We saw the designs from Tanel Veenre, New Vintage by Kriss, Birgit Skolimowski and Monquer.
The day was opened by Monton’s collection. This collection was specially made for Tallinn Fashion Week. Collection’s name is „Duality“. We can spread the collection in two parts. The first part shows the icy island and the other is a reminder of hot Cuban inspiration. There were 30 designs all together.
In the first part of the collection, we saw very tonal color palette. Mostly from gray to black with a touch of white. Long white maxi dresses with see-through materials were my personal favorite. Also in Monton’s collection, we had a chance to see the sporty socks element. Again good styling, but we’ve seen in before like I mentioned in my last post. They added the tulle for a lot of dresses which in my opinion didn’t go together with all outfits. Example, the black and white embroidered sleeveless dress layered with tulle and styled with sporty socks, skinny denim and silver heels. In my opinion, it was a little bit too much and the cut of the dress wasn’t very flattering. Also, my least favorite the silver bodysuit with the bomber jacket looked a little bit off. Maybe it was the fault of the model who didn’t wear it fierce enough. That’s another point for the designer it is very important to choose your models wisely. They are the first people who present your collection to the public so better be sure that the person rocks it on the runway.
I was very impressed with men’s collection and the styling they had done. Shorts with leggings, interesting bomber jackets and jumpsuits are quite a strong choice for any Estonian guy.
The other part of the collection was inspired by Cuban vibes like I said before. My ultimate favorite from this part was the long flower pattern kimono. I really would wear this every single day during the spring. Just style it with cool denim, mules and simple white T, uhh sounds like a dream to me. Also, the ruffles were quite a keyword for Monton’s TFW collection. The second part also brought a lot of colors for men’s which is making me super happy. I would love to see guys in Estonia doing a little bit of color blocking with their outfits. Something little bit bolder but definitely worth trying.
Next on the stage was Diana Arno with her pastel colors collection. The eye catchers for this collection were definitely the flower accessories. They perfectly matched with all the outfits that we saw on the runway. Again I had my favorite which was the light violet coat with big square pockets on both sides. Styled with this huge flower scarf which was breathtaking. I would really wear every single coat from this collection I saw. My second favorite thing were the long maxi dresses with a very low back line, which makes them so sexy and wearable on warm spring and summer days.
I was very impressed with the Goldtime accessories collection which brought a lot of diversity to the stage. The only things I wasn’t a fan about were the basic white t-shirt and basic denim with heels. We were discussing with Pilleriin and maybe more suitable would have been long black bodysuits which make the accessories pop out even more. I know it wasn’t about the outfits in this show but still, it would add something extra to it. Basic T’s and denim are too boring on the runway to even consider this option. But if we talk about the collection overall for me it was quite amazing. Ultimate favorite was the clock which was braided into the hair, I will give my 10 points to that.
Last part of the show brought to the stage Triinu Pungits and Embassy of Fashion. Triinu Pungits collection was my least favorite one from the second day. The dark brown colors have never been my favorite ones and if someone makes the collection out from this color I just cannot relate. The only things which caught my attention were the colorful bodysuits which I would definitely wear and the big oversized pattern coats.
Embassy of Fashion gave us a chance to see a big variety of amazing evening dresses which made me feel like a princess. Aldo Järvsoo’s bold colors and feminine cuts were something that every confident woman would like to wear. Ketlin Bachmann didn’t surprise me in any way and for me, the collection wasn’t flattering at all. Starting with the styling of colorful tights and finishing with a mixture of too many patterns and materials. For me, there is a line of „go crazy“ styling and sometimes it just doesn’t work out in a good way. This collection is a very good example that all the patterns don’t complete each other and as a designer, you need to be very careful with this. There is a very thin line between getting it wrong or right. Maybe the garments would work with a different styling but definitely not the way it was put together for this show.
We finished TFW with Riina Põldroos’s collection which for me was one of the best ones. My personal style is not that feminine and I rarely wear long maxi dresses with flower prints but in this collection there just was something what I really liked. My most favorite outfit was the black jumper with unicorn details and long sheer skirt with black flowers. Also, the outfit with long pink wide trousers and matching flower top stole the show. All the dresses I saw in this collection made my heart beat faster and I’m really dreaming wearing them. Time to discover my feminine side I guess.
So this was my overview of Tallinn Fashion Week. I was really happy that I got a chance to visit it and can’t wait to come back to the next one. I’m already back in London and actually sitting in a cafe at the moment writing this post for you guys. London is full of sunshine and warm weather at the moment and I’m gonna go now and enjoy this vitamin D weather.
Here some of my favorite pics from the runway. Enjoy babes

So hello all my fashion lovers. It’s time to make my second TFW post which this time is all about the shows that I saw during my first day. I didn’t attend the very first day of the fashion week because I was traveling to Estonia on that day.When it comes to fashion weeks then I’m always super excited to see something inspiring that will make me jump from my chair and clap my hands. When I’m writing this post I want to be completely honest with you. So that’s the reason I will tell you that unfortunately none of the shows made me do it this time. Of course, I had my favorites from styling wise but I feel that all the shows that I saw during the 2 days didn't bring anything new to the table.
On the first day, we saw 5 different collections. Which were Kadi Kuur, Mammu Couture, Year by Raivo Holm, Diana Denissova and Iris Janvier.
Kadi Kuur brought to the stage a large range of wedding and evening dresses. Light colors, embroidery and crochet details were the center of this collection. We even gotta see some of the jumpsuit versions of a wedding dress which were quite interesting. For me, they should have had a little bit more attention to the styling. Some looks were ruined by the visible bra. For me, it would have been cool to go even nude under the lace dress. Also, for the next time please take in mind that maybe it’s better to steam all the dresses which will go on the stage because creased dresses will make the whole look quite cheap.
Mammu Couture was the second show of the night. The collection was full of very cute dresses and feminine pieces. All the collection was in pastel colors which made it look even more cuter. I really loved the bow details on the garments but sometimes it’s not good to have so many on each dress. There were some dresses with bow details on the sleeves, collar and even for the belt. For me, that was the reason why some of the looks were ruined. Details are nice but only in a certain amount.
YEAR by Raivo Holm went back to minimalistic everyday outfits. Color range was more or less from beige to black. I felt a lot of Scandinavian vibes when I look back to the collection. I think a lot of people can relate to this collection because it is very easy to wear and style. To be honest it was one of my favorite ones just because they kept it very clean and didn't do anything over the top.
Diana Denissova’s collection was the high point of the night. Like I said in the beginning of the post I really come to the shows to feel inspired and get some new cool ideas how to style my outfits. This collection was far from inspiring outfits, color flow, and cuts. I really felt embarrassed to sit there and look at this collection on the runway. I really wouldn’t wear any of the designs from this collection. Some of the outfits reminded me my grandmother’s old closet. The prints they decided to use were not trendy or anything current or cool. I obviously understand the age range for who this collection is designed but honestly, I couldn't imagine anybody looking good in this. I’m sure I’m not the only one thinking this but I’m also sure there is a lot of potential clients for her. Just seeing this on a Fashion Week runway was a bit too much.
Iris Janvier finished the day with her collection. I’m really a fan of the styling and how they decided to put together the outfits. But they didn’t bring anything new to the table. Styling with sporty socks and fancy sandals have been around quite some time now. Starting with Jeremy Scott who was one of the first ones who brought it to the runway and rest of the world followed. Also, the big waist belts with straps are already on the market from last year. For me, it just feels that we are one step behind with fashion in Estonia. Or the ones who actually create something new and cool don’t have a chance to bring to the Fashion Week. But overall Iris and her girls nailed it anyway and like a said their show almost got me jumping on my chair. Just next time I would like to see something out from the box, even form styling wise. It’s always easy to copy but to create something as a designer that rest of the world will follow is a challenge.

This is my first look for Tallinn Fashion Week. To be honest I wasn't ready for this cold weather. Beginning of the week I was enjoying Moroccan hot weather and now I had to switch over which wasn't easy. I had such a busy 4 days in Tallinn this time. Fashion week took most of it. I will write a longer post about all the shows and my opinion about the designs that I saw during the two days. But now I just wanted to share my first look before I'm flying back to London in an hour. I always love coming back home and seeing all those familiar faces around me.
For the first look, I went for this dress dungaree what I styled up with my basic white t-shirt, black ankle boots and of course whenever I wear a dress I always go for Bellissima's tights because they are the most comfortable ones.
For me, the most important thing is to feel comfortable. I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to collaborate with one of my favorite brand Belissima. They always make sure that I'm packed up with their latest products. For me, it's so hard to find comfortable and fitted tights that support my body and make my legs look good. But Bellissima's high-quality products guarantee that perfect finish for my feminine outfits. This time I had the chance to try on so many different products and choose my favorite ones.
I'm a person who likes to wear my tights more than 1 time. With Bellissima's latest collection products I can be sure that I do not need to worry about my tights all day.
Here are my favorites from Bellissima's new collection
The latest trend, for now, is to have the most shaped bottom and a perfect booty. I would lie if I said that you can fix that with shaping tights. Unfortunately not, you need to work your ass off at the gym to get it but I'm pretty sure right clothing can help you a little bit. So if you have looked for a perfect pair of shaping tights then please, I highly recommend Bellissimo's shaper-push up tights from their latest collection. The pair I go for is 40 DENs. They are sheer tights, matt, with a control top to flatten your tummy and shape your bottom.
If you feel that your booty is good enough but you just want to control your top to give you this perfect flatten tummy look then I recommend going for Bellissima's shaper-control top model. They are super comfortable and relaxing your legs while wearing them. All of them are high quality and made in Italy.
Also, this time I had a chance to try out Bellissima's lingerie. I wasn't so impressed at the beginning but the moment when I tried it one it looked perfect on my body. I've never tried on they lingerie before but I'm sure this will not gonna be my last pair that I'm gonna own. It fits very well and the design is very simple but elegant at the same time. I went for a simple black push-up bra and a matching bottom.
