Weekend 17/18-01-15

This weekend we have had some great weather, the sun finally came out again - and so did my MK sunglasses. This called for a car sellfie on our way to Aachen yesterday for a cup of coffee. Too bad that we were definitely not the only people having that idea so we ended up in a not so cozy cafe but okay. We were together was what was important.
Have I mentioned that I went to the hairdressers a week ago?! I LOVE my haircolor, although it's not really to see on this photo, it has a hint of red in it. Love love love. Why didn't I go dark earlier?

/Sel nädalavahetusel on meid õnnistatud suurepärase ilmaga, päike tuli lõpuks jälle välja ja koos temaga ka mu MK päikeseprillid. Seega üks autoselfie oli õigustatud kui me olime teel Aachenisse, et kuskil kohvikus tass kohvi juua. Kahjuks polnud me ainukesed sellise ideega, mistõttu sai see kohvi joodud ühes vähem õdusamas kohvikus aga idee oli koos aega veeta, nii et polnud hullu.
Muide kas ma mainisin, et ma käisin vahepeal juuksuris?! Ma JUMALDAN oma juuksevärvi. Kuigi seda pole pildil eriti näha, on selles ka natuke punast. Love love love. Miks ma küll varem juba oma juukseid tagasi tumedaks ei värvinud?


This morning started for me with baking my egg (which I need to eat every morning) and heading to my Body Balance lesson at 09:30am. I kid you not there is no better way to a) stretch your muscles after a week of weight trainings, clear your head and gather energy for the new week. That and it is just a great start of the day. After that Mr picked me up and we had breakfast. Followed by me cleaning out my closet and throwing stuff out. Okay, not throwing stuff out literally but all the stuff that's still good will go to the red cross. I am still left with plenty and also plenty over which I am still having my doubts so we'll see. I am also very much out of hangers so a second cleanup does need to follow anyway. Atleast it's all more organized which was the whole idea behind it.
Well time for food prep, have a great Sunday!!

/Tänane hommik algas minu jaoks muna praadimisega (igal hommikul söön ühe muna) ja Body Balance trenni minemisega kell 09:30. Ausalt pole paremat viisi kuidas a) oma lihased venitada ja lõõgastada pärast nädalasi jõutreeninguid, b) tühjendada oma pea ja c) koguda energiat uueks nädalaks. Lisaks on see lihtsalt suurepärane päeva algus. Pärast seda tuli Mr mulle järele ja me sõime hommikust. Seejärel hakkasin oma kappe koristama ja viskasin nii mõndagi ära. Ok, ei visanud ära vaid kõik korralikud asjad lähevad heategevuseks. Mul on veel piisavalt asju üle, osa on isegi veel pööningul kuivamas ja kuna mul on ka riidepuud otsas siis on see vist märk, et peagi tuleb veel üks koristamine ette võtta. Vähemalt on kapp nüüd palju rohkem korras ja organiseeritum kui see oli, mis oligi kogu ettevõtmise idee.
Aga okei, aeg on hakata tulevaks nädalaks süüa valmistama, et hea lihtne oleks trenni kõrvalt. Toredat pühapäeva!
Sorry halva kvaliteediga piltide pärast, peangi kaamera aku uuesti ära laadima :)

My Fitness

Last Tuesday I received my workout and nutrition plans. Since Thursday I have been following it fulltime. And lucky enough it fits me perfectly. As I don't want to nor need to lose any weight and want to build muscle I eat portions what I have always eat but I eat more often. More often meaning 6 times a day. My breakfast and last meal are always the same and the other 4 meals or snacks if you will I switch according to my daily plan.
I use some supplements and take extra vitamins as my body is doing a lot of work + I work out 4 times a week and it needs to build the muscle so all support is needed. I don't know if I see a lot of change yet but I do feel great.

/Eelmisel teisipäeval sain kätte oma treeningu ning dieedi kavad. Alates neljapäevast olen neid 100% jälginud ja kavad sobivad mulle suurepäraselt. Kuna ma ei taha ega vaja kaalu kaotada vaid tahan muskleid ehitada siis mu söögiportsjonid on enamvähem sellised nagu alati söön aga ma söön palju tihedamini mis tähendab tavapärase kahe (jah... üksiolles on olnud hetki mil söögitegemisele aega pole kulutanud) kolme korra asemel kuut söögikorda. Hommikusöök ja viimane toit on alati samad aga ülejäänud neli söön siin kui saan ja vahetan omavahel.
Lisaks kasutan ekstra vitamiine, valgupulbrit ja veel paari lisa, et keha toimimas hoida. Mu kehal on tuge vaja, et teha mida ma tahan, et ta teeks. Nädalas leiab mind 4. korral jõusaalist ja rõhk on muidugi lihastreeningul. Ühe korra cardio või mõni rühmatrenn, eelistan viimast. Ma veel väga palju muutusi ei näe aga tunnen end suurepäraselt!

A colleague of mine asked whether I take photo's of myself to see the change but I actually haven't. It would be interesting to see though so I might as well.
Next Thursday I'll meet up with my trainer again for my checkup. I am so interested to that moment!! Then also my plans will be altered if needed.
The only downside to this is that due to my working out and Mr's otherwise busy schedule I have the feeling like we hardly see eachother. So tomorrow it's time for a date day just the two of us.

/Üks kolleeg küsis minult, et kas ma endast pilte ka teen, et muutusi näha aga seda ma pole teinud. Kuigi oleks huvitav näha küll.
Järgmisel neljapäeval on mul plaanitud kohtumine treeneriga, et vaadata üle kavad ja kuidas läheb. Mind nii huvitab mis ta arvab!!

Ainus miinuspunkt selle kõige juures on, et minu treeningkavade ja Mr'i muidu kiire tööelu juures on mul tunne, et me teineteist vaat, et ei näegi seega homme on aeg kohtingupäevaks:) Lähinädalail on meil plaanis citytrip.

Now I am looking for new sports clothes to mix it up a bit at the gym :) I prefer my tights long and either grey or black but my tops and shoes full of color and built so that I could see my shoulders/arms when I train. Those are actually also my favorite musclegroup to train. Followed by back.:)

/Nüüd ma otsin uusi spordiriideid, et vaheldust oleks jõusaalis olles. Ma eelistan oma spordipükse pikkade ja kas musta või hallidena aga mu topid ja jalanõud peavad olema värvilised ja sellised, et ma näeksin oma õlgu/käsi kui ma treenin. Need on nimelt mu lemmik lihasgrupid mida treenida. Sellele järgneb selg.
Tomorrow is restday, and on Sunday I'm having an hour workout planned in in the morning.

/Homme on mul puhkepäev ja pühapäeva hommikul on mul tunniajane trenn plaanitud.

Dreaming of 2015


I am not one to make new year´s resolutions so I will just write down some things which I either want to get better at, want to achieve or things that I just want. I believe in visualizing your goals and dreams to get what you want ..
Travel more - For now we have planned in and booked a vacation to Thailand in March but I am sure it won´t be the only trip thisone. I want to visit K. in Copenhagen, we want to take atleast one citytrip (Berlin, Scandinavia..?), I am probably going on a vacation with my sister, we want to spend our new years eve 2015-2016 somewhere warm and not to mention I will definitely be visiting Estonia..
Work on the interior design of our home - I have again so many ideas which I want to realize. For example after taking out our christmas tree, I am just hating the empty space it created .. and I now have an idea how to fix it. Another project would be our hall and yet another one our guest room. Plenty to do :)
Self growth - I want to become better at letting things go and experience this year light and easy.. stop being so insecure in myself etc .. just take it as it comes and enjoy the ride.

Take better (and more) photo´s - I got myself a camera last year to take decent photos. It´s time to start using it the way it should be used. I want to take a photography course or two, get a new lense and practise practise practise...
Fitness - I got myself a personal trainer end of last year and I am meeting him up again on Tuesday. I like sports anyway but now under his lead I will get the fit, toned body I have wanted but due having missed some professional guidance haven´t gotten yet.
Fashion is passion - Clothing has become a great way for me to express myself. This year (and forward..) I want to invest in timeless pieces, atleast one designer handbag and spend less money on one season pieces. Sometimes when I think on how much I have spent on things that are now just hanging in my closet, well, I would have been able to get myself one of those handbags I have been wanting for a while now;) So fashion is passion but less is more.

More attention for my blog - better quality photo´s, more regular posting.. estonian or english or estonian and english....
Stop thinking of money spent on things that make your life easier - seriously, getting a cleaning lady was our best desicion of 2014. Less time for cleaning = much more time for yourself and your relationship.


Ma pole eriline uusaasta lubaduste tegija, seega ma otsustasin kirjutada osad asjad milles ma paremaks tahan saada, mida saavutada tahan või mida ma lihtsalt tahan. Ma usun soovide visualiseerimisse...
 Rohkem reisida - praeguseks me oleme plaaninud reisi Taisse aga ma olen kindel, et see ei jää selle aasta viimaseks puhkuseks. Ma tahan K.le Kopenhaagenisse külla minna, me tahame minna vähemalt ühele city-tripile (Berliin, Skandinaavia..?), arvatavasti lähen ma oma õega puhkama, lisaks tahame me selle aasta lõpu veeta kuskil soojas kliimas ja kahtlemata lähen ma ka Eestisse.

Tegutseda edasi meie kodu sisekujunduse kallal - Mul on jälle nii palju ideid mida ma teostada tahan. Näiteks häirib mind nüüd meeletult see tühi koht mis peale jõulukuuse välja viimist üle jäi, nüüd on mul õnneks juba idee mida ma seal peale tahan hakata. Nüüd ainult ideaalsed asjad selleks leida. Lisaks on mul idee meie esiku jaoks. Järgmine projekt on meie külalistetuba. Tegemist piisavalt selleks aastaks :) 
Eneseareng - Tahan olla parem asjade minna laskmises ja käesolevat aastat kogeda kergena ja lihtsana. Sest elu ongi just nii lihtne kui lihtsaks sa selle ise mõtled. Lisaks jätkuvalt töötada oma enesekindluse kallal.. lihtsalt võtta seda kuidas tuleb ja enjoy the ride.
  
Teha paremaid (ja rohkem) fototsid - ostsin endale eelmisel aastal korraliku kaamera, et häid pilte teha ja nüüd on aeg seda hakata kasutama nii kuidas peab. Tahan paar fotograafia kursust võtta, osta uus objektiiv ja harjutada, harjutada, harjutada. Ja need pildid siis ilmutada ja albumisse:)

Fitness - Kuna mul on nüüd personaalne treener ja mul on temaga uuesti kohtumine teisipäeval siis nüüd tema toetuse ja kogemusega tahan saavutada selle keha mida alati tahtnud olen. Lihased siit ma tulen!

Fashion is passion - riided ja riietumine on minu jaoks muutunud suurepäraseks eneseväljenduse viisiks. Sel aastal ja edasi ma tahan investeerida kvaliteetsetesse ajatutesse esemetesse, vähemalt ühte disainer käekotti ja kulutada vähem raha ühe hooaja riietele. Vahest ma mõtlen neile asjadele mida ma olen kokku ostnud ja mis nüüd põhiliselt lihtsalt mu kapis ripuvad siis no, ma oleks selle eest juba ühe sellise käekoti saanud küll:) Rohkem tähelepanu välimusele üleüldiselt aastal 2015..

 Rohem tähelepanu oma blogi jaoks - parema kvaliteediga fotod, regulaarsemalt postitada .. eesti või inglise keeles või eesti ja inglise keeles ..

Happy new year!!!

 My 2014 was amazing. I met new people, got a new interesting job, celebrated our 3rd anniversary with Mr, got our cats who we love to bits, travelled to Milan, other cities in Italy, Warsaw, Stockholm, to my home country Estonia and just was happy. It is crazy good how I really can say that I have no real problems in my life. 
But 2015 - I already have so much to look forward to. This seems to become a year of travelling. I am planning to go to Copenhagen to a very good friend of mine (I last saw her in October so it's about time!), we booked a 3 week vacation to Thailand, before that my sister comes to visit with her family, my sister and I will go on vacation end of the summer aswell and I am sure we will fit a citytrip or two in there too. In June we are going to Taylor Swift's concert in Amsterdam, Mr and I will soon be celebrating our 4 year anniversary (time does fly) ... Next week I will start training with my PT. And it's only the first of January. Life is amazing and I feel so blessed!
 I am sure this year has a lot more to offer and I am so looking forward to it. I am not really one for new years resolutions but I will be doing a inspiration board for this year and do want to put more focus on my blog and get a photography course or two.

I hope to see you guys here in 2015 and hope that all of you will have an amazing year with lots of love!



 Started this morning with some magazine reading. Inspo!

 Spent new year's eve at home with Mr. How nice it was to go to bed at a normal time and wake up all rest. My keyword for this year is "lightness" or "ease" .. I want to experience this year feeling light and happy and feeling like life can actually be easy. To stop stressing out about nonsense.

 The "please come out of bed" committee this morning. SO happy that we decided to get our cats last year.

New in: Mango

On Saturday the christmas sales started here so I had yet another reason to go to the city and get something for myself. First the plan was to get a gift for Mr's parents but I ofcourse ended up getting a couple of things for myself plus a gift for Mr. We don't give eachother christmas gifts so this fell into the "just because I appreciate you so much"category... I'll show another time what it was.

Mango is a shop where I always find something that I want. So what could be better when you get just that but then 50% off? I think I was in there atleast an hour and at one point my arms were full with dresses, a skirt, two pairs of pants and a couple of tops ... and then I saw shoes and yes ofcourse they had two pairs that I loved in my size so I tried to get all of it fit in my hands without much success. So I decided to hang pretty much everything back and only get the two pairs of shoes and a sweater. Because well, a girl never has too many shoes:)

My Beauty Favorites of 2014

I've never really been much of a beauty interested girl. Atleast not especially but that is really changing every year, just like I wrote in my Daily makeup favorites post, since we are all turning older, taking good care of your skin, removing your make up etc are all very important. It has just taken a lot longer for me to actually realize that than some other women:)

To celebrate that, I decided to gather my favorite beauty products of the year. The categories are hair, make up, creams, body, nails and various. As you will notice when scrolling down, I mostly just use usual things that you can get at any drug store. I am just not yet totally convinced why that one cream of €70 is better than the €10 day cream that I usually use..

HAIR
KMS California Tame Frizz - Helps you to control frizzy hair with a light hold. Works even on my thick hair. It did take me some time to really get the hang of this. I always seemed to use too much of it which resulted in hair that felt greasy very fast. I always have had frizzy hair and you really need to use very little of this for it to do the trick. Costs around €25 but lasts for ages. I got mine from my hairdressers.
Tony & Guy Casual flexible hold Hairspray - I don't use hairspray/wax/gel that often. I just don't like that feeling that my hair would stay put in every condition and that my hair needs some serious washing afterwards to get rid of that stuff from my hair. But when I do, I prefer some hairspray to fixate my locks and definitely prefer a spray that still leaves your hair natural and lets it move without glueing your hair together. This hairspray sure does the just that! Recommended! Price around €10.
Andrelon Brilliant Age Shine & Care Volume Spray - This product is actually meant for older getting hair, to give it some body and volume. Well volume I have enough but this product works wonders on my ends. It feels like my ends are much better moisturized and don't break that easily. €6

NAILS
Jessica Phenomen Oil Intensive Moisturizer - Unfortunately I cannot keep my fingers away from my cuticles and whenever I see even the tiniest of piece of loose skin, I need to get it removed. Needless to say, a cuticle oil is very much needed. This not just makes the skin around my nails very soft but also smells divine! I think it cost around €20
OPI Nailpolish in Berlin There Done That - When you are looking for a nice grey nailpolish tone don't look any further. It stays on your nails for a while, the color is great and it's also easy to remove. Check check and check! Around €15
HEMA Base Coat - Does exactly what it is meant to be but I feel like it kind of helps me to 'even out' my uneven nails a bit. Therefore the extra credit. Thisone is from the Dutch store HEMA. Costs around €4

CREAMS
JOIK Regenerating  Nightcream - This nightcream with calendula and sea-buckthorn oil is from the Estonian brand JOIK and perfect for my skin that needs a lot of hydration. Before getting this cream I usually woke up with my skin pulling and itching all over. Now when I wake up my skin looks well rested and hydrated. Recommended! It's your's for €11 (50ml)
Garnier Moisture Match - To be honest I cannot remember why I got thisone. I have only had bad experiences with Garnier in the past but well, I did get thisone and I am happy I did. This is perfect as a light daycream, giving enough moisture and absorbes fast. Perfect for those busy working day mornings. I think thisone cost around €8
Neutral hand cream - Handcream without parabens, colorants and perfume. Developed for sensitive skin and eventhough my skin is not really sensitive but I do like the idea of having so little possible junk in my handcream. This gives enough moisture even during the wintermonths and absorbs fast. The price is definitely also good at €6

MAKE UP
Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua - If you have normal skin and just need something light to give you that coverage, glow and perfect skin, this is your match. You need just a tiny bit of this and get good coverage where you need it. Big plus in my eyes is the SPF15. Price around €40
HEMA Moisturizing Lipstick - Another great budget find from the Dutch HEMA store. I love the tone (no 10), the coverage (one layer is enough during the day, add two for a deeper darker look). I have gotten a lot of compliments for thisone and atleast 3 people have gotten it because they have seen it on me. Only around €5 ...
Mineralissima Bisquit Concealer -  Another product with SPF15 which means half way in my book. This also gives good coverage for those annoying red batches on your face should you have a bad skin day. Also I love mineral makeup so this one's all good. Should be around €10 for 3g so you get value for your money.

BODY
Dove Purely Pampering Body Oils - Mr got me these to test and ever since I am hooked! They smell divine, absorb uber fast, don't stain .. what does a girl need more. Mine are with pistachio cream and magnolia and shea butter and warm vanilla. €10 for 150ml
Vaseline Spray & Go Body Moisturiser - For those days when you are in a hurry but still want to use some bodycream after your shower. Thisone is so easy to use - just spray it on your skin and that's it. Another quickly absorbing product. This product is especially perfect for the summer months or on a sunny vacation. For only €8 it's yours to enjoy.  
Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Honey Drops Body Cream - This body cream is for me for the days when I have enough time to take a bath or a long shower, use masks etc and want to feel extra luxurious. Between €30-€40 for 500ml

VARIOUS
Rexona compressed Cotton Ultra Dry - A couple of months ago both Rexona and Dove came out with compressed versions of their deodorants. This means that a regular 150ml bottle is now fitted in a bottle half the size but still gives you the same amount of deodorant. This is perfect to take with you when travelling with handluggage. Especially when you are like me and prefer spray deodorants to roll-on's. And it really does last as long as a regular bottle of 150ml does. Win win in my eyes! €3-€4 is the pricepoint
Giorgio Armani Si - This perfume is without a doubt my favorite perfume of this year and I am sure it will stick by me for years to come. It took me one sniff of this uber feminine perfume at the airport in Warsaw and I was sold! This floral, musky, airy, blackcurranti mix is a classic and graceful perfume. I paid around €65 for 50ml (airport price)
Zwitsal handsoap - A bit of a weird choice perhaps but hey, handsoap is something you use every day a few times. I want mine to smell nice, leave my hands soft and moisturized and ofcourse get them clean. This one is ofcourse marketed as soap for children with cartoon characters Woezel and Pip on the bottle but I love the "baby" smell of it:) This is a new product but I expect it to cost around €5



What are your favorite beauty products?
I hope you liked reading this post and hopefully you got some product ideas to try out! :)
