30 Day Clothes and Accessories Challenge: Day 4


This one is by H&M. It's a very pretty cream color oversized shirt with some gold sparkles going through the fabric. I'm sure it will look nice with black blazers and jeans. 

Hope you are having a good weekend :)

30 Day Clothes and Accessories Challenge: Day 3


So this is probably my favorite bracelet combination of the moment! The large beaded one was a gift from my husband and my Pandora bracelet was given to me by my parents for my birthday, some of the beads are also gifts from my husband. My Pandora bracelet is not full yet, so I probably do a post on some new charms when I get them :)

Hope you enjoyed!

Hello, everyone! This September me, my husband and our daughter spent our family vacation in Berlin. We really enjoyed it! Here are just some pictures from our trip, hope you like them...

I love your comments! Bye!

Everyday Fall Makeup

Hey, guys! Hope you are having a great week! Just wanted to update you on some of my favorite makeup items that I use pretty much everyday with a few variations. It's a very fast and simple look that I wear to work. So these are the products:

1. MAC fix+ (I spray my Body Shop kabuki brush with it and then apply my loose mineral foundation - it turns out to be very natural looking)
2. MAC mineralize SPF15 foundation loose in "Extra Light"
3. MAC mineralize SPF15 foundation in NW30 (I contour my face with this darker cream foundation using my MAC 128 brush)
4. Chanel's soleil tan de chanel (add a little bit of this with the same 128 brush by MAC)
5. MAC "Soft Ochre" paint pot as an eye base
6. Giorgio Armani eye shadow in №25 all over the lid (with MAC 252 brush)
7. Bourjois white eye shadow in the corners (same 252 brush)
8. Nars black glitter pencil (it has a little bit of glitter in it, but it actually turns out just black on your eyes) smudged with MAC 219 brush
9. MAC studio fix lash mascara in "Black Fix"
10. Lately I've been loving these lip products - Maybelline color sensational lipgloss in "Freshly Sliced" №150, Nars lipstick in "Roman Holiday" (gorgeous pink), MAC sheen supreme lipstick in "Gotta Dash!" (very nice coral)

My Ring Collection

Hey, guys! Recently I was looking through my rings - just trying to find some new cool combinations to wear. You know how sometimes you rediscover something from your closet, or makeup collection or jewelry, so I'm really into trying to wear a different ring from my jewelry box every day. And also I decided to share this with you :)
Here they are:


My well-loved diamonds from my collection: my engagement and wedding rings and a pavé diamond ring (birthday gift from my husband). I wear those every single day:

Hope you are having a great weekend! :)

What's in My Purse?

Hey, everyone! Here it is: my Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene canvas Speedy 30 and everything it contains!

As you all probably know, I'm a teacher at the St. Petersburg State University. This school year my classes start in October, so I will definitely need a larger bag for all of my teaching materials and my laptop, something like my Longchamp tote:

...but for now my Speedy works just fine!
Usually I also take my Sony Nex-5 with me everywhere, I love that camera!
Hope you liked it! Looking forward to your comments! Bye!

Tallinn/Helsinki Trip and Haul

Hello, everyone! As many of you probably know, I was born in Tallinn, Estonia. I have a lot of friends and relatives there. So a couple of months ago me, my husband and our daughter had a nice trip to Tallinn again. Just wanted to share this fun experience with you. Here are some pictures of our trip and also of some things that I purchased there. 

Colors: "Extra-Va-Vaganza!" and "Black Shatter"

We were also planning to go to Helsinki for a couple of days and we've made a very exciting purchase there. That bag has been on my wishlist literally forever! Love it!
From Tallinn to Helsinki...

Hope you enjoyed! Would you like me to do a what's in my purse post? I think it's a great time to do it :)
Thanks for all of your kind comments!

A Little Bit of Everything

Hey, everyone! Hope you all are having a great weekend! Just wanted to make a quick post on some things that I've been loving lately :)

FOTD/HOTD: This is the makeup look that I've been wearing a lot! It is super easy and fast! I hope you like it. 

Almost forgot to tell you about my hair do: I usually don't like braids, but I got some compliments on this hair style and it's so easy and fast as well. I actually am into braids now!

This is what I used:

FACE - pro longwear foundation, studio finish concealer, msf natural, "tenderling" blush (all MAC)

EYES - brow wax by MAC, "bamboom" paint by MAC, shiseido cream shadow in "lemon sugar", "fascinating" eye kohl by MAC, white shadow by bourjois, loreal liquid liner, kiss lashes №026

LIPS - MAC lip gelee (don't know the name, sorry!)

HAUL: I wanted to share with some beauty things that I got and really like

MAC mineralize all-over lotion - love it! use it all the time! this is my third tube!
MAC eyeshadow in "crystal" - pretty light silvery purple
OPI exfoliating cuticle treatment - keeps your cuticles neat and healthy

Duo lash adhesive - it's the best
And I love my new mirror from Stockmann :)

I also wanted to show you my beloved MAC palette. I've been using it a lot lately, I feel like I have to give it a break and use other shadows that I own. It's really cool, because it has colors literally from MAC stores all over Europe, they were like little souvenirs to me :) some of the shadows I depotted myself, some are limited edition. It's not full yet, but I like that I still have some free spots in it. I only have one large palette, because most of my MAC shadows are in a pot form. 

Top row (left to right) - star violet, sushi flower, jest, paradisco, coquette
Middle row - graphology, green-smoke, stately black, electra
Bottom row - crystal, sumptuous olive, too dolly, white frost

RECIPE: I enjoy cooking Chinese lately! Check out these shrimp pot stickers
I actually made wontons myself too :)

Until the next time, everyone!
