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!
