Grete, Iti & Annika | Rapunzel of Sweden

Read Article →

I love to talk about beauty and here's a little chat about Rapunzel of Sweden hair extensions. First of all, when I clipped them into my hair I felt like a mermaid :D Who doesn't want to feel like a mermaid?! But for real, the hair is thick (!), long and super soft. They stayed perfectly attached to my natural hair even on a really windy day. And I didn't even backcomb my routs! Good quality is very important to me and these extensions live up to my needs. If you are wondering which set of hair I am talking about then you can check them out here (colour #3 / out of stock atm): http://www.rapunzelofsweden.com/human-hair-extensions/clip-on-set/clip-on-set-european-straight. Btw, aren't Iti and Annika super gorgeous in this video?! :) Henri did the filming part and I did the editing.

THE LAST DAY IN ROME | THROWBACK

Read Article →
We planned from the beginning that the last full day in Rome would be a shopping day. We found some awesome stores like Foot Locker and Brandy Melville but the most outstanding one was definitely Zara which had four floors! :D It was crazy and gorgeous at the same time. 

I don't really want to talk about my outfit because it wasn't a photoshoot-friendly one :D My priority was comfort. I put on my Zara dress which I bought from Helsinki before the trip to Rome. And because I knew that we were going to walk a lot I couldn't put anything other on my feet than my beloved Nike's. 

I am going to eat breakfast now ( I started my day with working today :D I'm starving! ). And then I have 2 videos to edit + I have many updated video ideas I need to film during the next days :) Take care, everyone! Photos taken by Henri Juvonen :)

SUPERFOODS IN MY EVERYDAY LIFE

Read Article →
Hey everybody! There has been a lot of fashion and lifestyle posts on my blog lately. Since I have many new readers I thought I would mention that in this blog there's a lot of different subjects besides fashion as well :) 

I always go with the flow and don't plan my posts, so I guess these topics have been on top in the past few weeks. Perhaps I should make it clear that I am the type of person who lives life according to what it offers and where it takes me. Today I am going to mention three different superfoods that I have somehow naturally incorporated into my everyday life. Now, I'm not going to write a novel of each one because the post would end up being too long. If something caught your attention then google it :) I just want to inform you what superfoods are, in my opinion, easy to mix into your usual meals. 

Also, as a little bonus I recommend watching her videos: https://www.youtube.com/user/holistichabits. She hasn't posted for 2 months but her channel is filled with great knowledge about food. As a matter of fact, the latest video about Miso is why I bought the paste in Norway. I haven't seen it in any grocery store or online shop in Estonia.
I think because I was already talking about miso, I will start with that. I will make a quick conclusion why it's good for the body and why I decided to buy it. There's actually A LOT of different foods that claim to be the best for you and it can be a bit overwhelming. The same with make-up. There is oh-so-much products on the market. First of all, I love the taste of miso. I have eaten/ drank miso soup at sushi restaurants and always adored it. I could eat miso soup and sushi every day. That wouldn't be a problem for me :D I add miso paste to my buckwheat or rice meal mixed with cottage cheese. Sometimes I have added it to a salad mixed with tuna fish. Why is it beneficial? Because it's a fermented product, it's very rich in probiotics that help with digestion. Also, like Holistic Habits mentioned, it's going to help your immune system and effect almost every organ in your body. It even boosts your mood. Last but not least, it is high in antioxidants and cleanses the body.
I think if I start to mention the benefits of chia seeds right now then the list would be endless. I think the better option is to direct you on some page and basically not do copy-paste. For example, click here! Just a little while ago I added chia seeds to my muesli which I had with kefir. The other super easy way to eat the seeds is to add them to your porridge. The same is with goji berries(info!) which are the third superfoods that I wanted to mention. I eat these two quite the same way. I have uploaded pictures with these on my Instagram as well. I love love love food so there might be a lot of photos of food on my account. Bare that in mind :D Oops, this is so me- getting lost from the actual topic. But I hope this post helped you at least a little bit :) xx

ROCCA AL MARE KUTSUB ÜLES KOOLILÕPETAJAID

Read Article →
Käisin täna Rocca al Mares rõivapoode uudistamas ning sealhulgas otsimas outfit-e, millega ise kooli lõpetaksin. Tõenäoliselt olete aru saanud, et ma olen väga minimalistliku stiiliga, seega ehteid te ka nendel piltidel ei näe. Mulle meeldib rõhku panna mõnusale kangale ja mugavale lõikele. Kõige enam eelistan väljavalitud rõivaid ehtida kauni meigi ja soenguga :) Aga nüüd lähemalt sellest, mis ma seekord välja valisin. Vabandan, et pildid on halva kvaliteediga, kuna tehtud telefoniga.

Vasakul pildil asun ma H&M proovikabiinis, kus on mul seljas must jumpsuit. PS! Seda saab vaid Rocca al Mare H&M-i poest ning valikus on ka oranžikas roosa värv. Kui aus olla, siis ma tegelikult isegi mõtlesin mustale toonile juurde lisada ühe värvilise kaelaehte, kuid minu maitsele oli õlaosa juba piisavalt eriline. Soengust rääkides, siis teeksin kõrge sleek hobusesaba või suured vesilokid. Kindlasti lisaksin särtsu kandes huultele punase või mõne teise erksa huuletooni. Nii muutub look lõpupeole kohaselt pidulikumaks. 

Teisel pildil olen ma hoopis Ivo Nikkolo proovikabiinis. Mõtlesin esile tuua kaks erinevat hinnaklassi. See punane kleit oli nii mugav ja selle lõige äärmiselt klassikaline. Tegelikult saab mõlemaid outfit-e ka pärast lõpetamist kanda ning just Ivo Nikkolost ostetud kleidi puhul ei juhtuks see, et investeering pärast tähtsat üritust kappi seisma jääks. Minnes tagasi konkreetse kleidi juurde, siis sellega paistad kindlasti silma. Kombineeri juurde 20ndatest või 60ndatest inspireeritud laineline soeng ja lõpptulemus muutubki kohe naiselikuks ja glamuurseks. Igaks juhuks mainin, et mõlema pildi peal olevad kingad pärinevad ka vastavatest poodidest. Oh-kui-hea oli kinnistele jalatsitele vahelduseks panna jalga rihmikud ning kontsaking tõesti muudab terve oleku palju elavamaks. Enesetunde samamoodi :)

Nüüd jõuan kõige tähtsama uudiseni! Rocca al Mare kutsub üles 9. ja 12. klassi lõpetajaid osalema koolilõpukampaanias. See kestab veel mõned päevad, täpsemalt siis kuni 3. maini. Kampaania leiate siit:

Kuidas osaleda? Kaubanduskeskuse turundusjuhi Kristi Seppeli sõnul on meeleolukate ühispiltide tegemine mujal maailmas laialt levinud traditsioon.  „Eestis piirdutakse sageli lõpuaktuse piduliku grupipildiga, mis ei peegelda üldse tegelikku koolielu ja -melu. Seetõttu kutsume koolilõpetajaid üles tegema ühe sellise pildi, mis näitab just selle klassi iseloomu ja eripära. See foto peaks jäädvustama hetke, mida tänased koolinoored ka vanaduspõlves muigega meenutavad,“ selgitas kampaania eesmärki Kristi Seppe.

Lisaks ägedale kogemusele klassikaaslastega on ka auhinnad väga motiveerivad: Kõigi Rocca al Mare Facebook-i lehe kampaaniarakenduse kaudu laekunud fotode seast valib žürii välja parima pildi, millel olevad noored saavad igaüks 250-eurose Rocca al Mare keskuse kinkekaardi koolilõpuriiete ostmiseks. Lisaks veel kostüümikunstnik Kenneth Bärlini ja tema stilistide meeskonna nõu rõivaste valimisel. Lux Express annab parima foto teinud klassile ja klassijuhatajale aga bussipiletid mistahes Lux Expressi sihtkohta Eestis, Lätis, Leedus, Venemaal, Poolas, Tšehhis või Saksamaal.

DARK STREETS OF ROME

This photoshoot was something I had never done before. I mean, we had a HUGE umbrella which we had to rent for these kinds of nighttime shots. I had always been used to taking outfit photos with natural light, so I didn't know what to expect BUT I am so pleased with the result! Thank you, Henri! Definitely visit his amazing web page: http://www.henrijuvonen.com/
