Happiness in the smallest things

I have gotten a lot of questions recently from various people about why I am so happy and smiling all the time. But the real question in my opinion would be, why are you not happy? Of course I am not some super human without any problems, I do. But even then I smile through them because if I have a bad day then why should I also ruin someone else’s by being sad or angry? Why should I make others feel bad when I do?

That’s my absolutely adorable friend Merilyn, who is exactly like me. Always smiling. 🙂

It’s also about finding happiness even from the most smallest things. If you are able to see the beauty even from let’s say, an apple. Not necessarily from the looks of it but about its sweet taste. Be happy about that. Let that erase those bad feeling go away, even for a minute. Learn to let go of some things and you will see how much better it is. Why should you worry about all the problems in the world? You shouldn’t. It’s okay to just make sure that YOU are happy. And once you do that, you can see that smiling and spreading that warmth of laughter gives you, can stuck to people.

So, what are the things I am happy about? I am happy about a lot of things but here’s just some of them (I also did a post a while back about all the things that make me happy, you can read it here).

  • the warm feeling of a sun touching my skin
  • happy people
  • friends
  • good food
  • that I am able to travel as much as I do
  • doing my makeup in the morning
  • listening to some of my favorite songs and singing along as loud as I can
  • art (in all forms – dancing, photography, drawing)
  • the smell of a freshly mowed grass
  • talking about everything and nothing with a good friend

Magic of Purple

Hello! The long waited post is finally here! I got the photos a while back actually but WordPress has been playing with me because for some reason the photos had a terrible quality each time I have tried to upload them here. And yes, They look absolutely beautiful and high quality everywhere else.

But here are some of my favorite photos from my photoshoot. Enjoy and let me know what do you think of this new and totally different hairstyle!

Photographer: Ako Lehemets

Heihopsti! Ja ongi see kauaoodatud postitus teie ees! Ma sain pildid juba pĂ€ris tĂŒkk aega tagasi, aga kuna mina ja WordPress pole viimasel ajal just kĂ”ige paremini lĂ€bi saanud siis oli pisike probleem – nimelt iga kord kui ĂŒritasin neid pilte siia ĂŒles panna, siis kvaliteet oli nii halb, et ma lihtsalt ei suutnud veenda ennast neid ĂŒles panema. Ning jah, pildid on muidu super kvaliteediga nii et viga peab kuskil siin leiduma. Iseasi, aga kus siis ikkagi tĂ€psemalt.

Igastahes, siin on siis mÔned minu lemmikud pildid, mis nÀdala eest tehtud said. Anna teada kuidas pildid meeldivad ning ka mis arvad sellest uuest ja totaalselt teistsugusest soengust!

Changing from blonde & long

Hello again! I promise that over the summer I will try and keep up the consistency because right now  it’s.. well, let’s just say that it could be a lot more better.

Anyway, I am not sure how many of you follow me on my Instagram (but if not, then hello, what are you even doing with your life?? haha just kidding :D) then you might have seen a little change from my story. As it’s not really a secret then I am going to say it out loud – I cut my hair (again) and colored it purple-brownish (can’t wait until you see the result, but there’s multiple days until the full reveal :D).

So for that, I went for a little shoot with my babe before I changed my hair on the 26th June, because well, simply said, I didn’t have many photos of myself. Last ones were taken in December (that I reaaallly loved). So it was about time I got some new fresh shots before cutting and coloring them. And here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

Ps! To see more photos, go and follow my Instagram. I usually post there (and to the Insta stories) everything before so you can get all the sneak peeks and news there 😉

Tere taas! Ma luban, et ĂŒritan suve jooksul rohkem siia kirjutada ning pilte riputada, kui olen seda siiamaani teinud, kuna hetkel on see, noh.. ilusti öeldes, vĂ”iks ma endast siin rohkem mĂ€rku anda. 😀

Igastahes, ma pole kidel kui paljud teist jĂ€lgivad mind ka instagrammis (kui sa seda juba ei tee siis, mida sa ĂŒldse oma eluga teed?? haha nali-nali :D), aga kes jĂ€lgivad, siis vĂ”isite juba nĂ€ha story’s minu pisikest muutust. Kuna see enam sedavĂ”rd saladus pole siis, mis mĂ”tet on siin keerutada – mĂ”ned pĂ€evad tagasi lĂ”ikasin oma pikad blondid juuksed maha ning vĂ€rvisin need lillakas pruuniks. Ma ei jĂ”ua juba oodata, kuni te nĂ€ete ka uusi pilte nendega sest need nĂ€evad nii lahedad vĂ€lja, ma olen ise vĂ€ga rahul (kuigi mĂ”ned arvavad, et ma olen natuke hulluks lĂ€inud :D).

Kuigi kui aus olla siis pole pilte veel tegemagi lÀinud, aga ma olen lihtsalt ise ka juba nii elevil, plaan on minna juba neljapÀeval tegema nii et ehk saab nÀdala lÔpuks kÀtte ja saate siis tulemust oma kogu hiilguses nÀha.

Aga enne kui oma blondid kiharad maha lĂ”ikasin ning Ă€ra vĂ€rvisin siis lĂ€ksin ja tegin sĂ”brannaga veel viimased pildid pikkade juustega. Ning mĂ”tlesin oma lemmikuid siis ka teiega jagada. Okei, aitab juba jutust, nautige! 🙂

I have been keeping a secret..

I need to confess something. I have been hiding something from all of you but I can’t keep it inside anymore. I wasn’t planning to talk about it for a long time but I am afraid what will happen if I don’t talk about it.

The reason I haven’t been online that much for the past few months is because on April 5th I was officially diagnosed with JIA aka Juvenile Ideopathical Artritis.

Who is not familiar with it then shortly said it’s a condition where my own body has started attacking my joints. For me it has caused severe pain in both of my wrists and knees. And this makes even the most simple and most everyday things harder for me than they are for most people.

I wish I could say that it only hurts me physically. It plays with my mind and tests my own limits. Because every morning I wake up and I feel it. I feel it everywhere. It breaks my heart because I had to give up some things that I love. There are so many days when I was ready to give up and not fight it because I lost a lot because of this. I lost some people. But then I have to remind myself that hopefully gets easier. That one day I will be better. And there are only people next to me who truly care about me and love me with their whole heart.

I have been also in a role of the friend who sees the other person experience this. And it isn’t easy, I get it. It breaks the spirit of the person. If you have been friends for a long time and remember the person as the most happiest one then you have to be prepared for it to change. Because it will. There will be days when they close up and stay away from everything. And there will be days when they want to be around people as much as possible. In that case, please don’t close them out. I beg you. It makes their world even worse because the nasty thoughts will get the best of them.

I can’t never blame the people if it’s too much for them to handle. Every day with this is different. Some days I do feel like I could fight the world and other days I feel like I never want to wake up. It’s harsh to say but this is the truth.

So. This is the conclusion of what has been going on and what I am dealing with right now. And to finish it then I ask you to be kind to people around you, you can never know what is happening to them. And when you see that something is wrong then just be there for the person, offer your shoulder when you feel they need to cry or just an ear to listen them out. And never close them out. It will only make everything worse.

If you have any questions about it or want to know more about then don’t be afraid to ask. You can always write in here or if you want to talk privately then you can write me in any of my social media accounts.

And for any disclaimers out there then this post is not for seeking attention but showing others that it is important to speak up. To make talking about your mental and physical health okay and normal, not as a tabu thing.

Ma tahan midagi ĂŒles tunnistada. Ma olen seda varjanud peaaegu, et kĂ”igi eest, aga ma ei suuda seda enam teha. Ma ei plaaninud sellest veel pikka aega rÀÀkida, kuid ma kardan natuke, mis vĂ”ib juhtuda kui ma seda ei tee.
PĂ”hjus, miks ma olen viimase paari kuu jooksul olnud netist rohkem eemal on see, et 5ndal aprillil diagnoositi mind juveniilse ideopaatilise artriidiga (ehk lĂŒhidalt öeldes JIA).

Kes pole sellega tuttav siis lĂŒhidalt öeldes on see seisund, kus mu enda keha on pöördunud iseenda vastu ning selle tulemusena hakanud mu liigiseid rĂŒndama. Minu jaoks pĂ”hjustab see Ă€gedat valu nii mĂ”lemates randmetes ning pĂ”lvedes. Ning selle tulemusena vĂ”ivad mĂ”ned kĂ”ige lihtsamad ja igapĂ€evasemad asjad mulle raskeks osutada.

Ma soovin, et ma saaksin öelda, et see pĂ”hjustab valu mulle ainult fĂŒĂŒsilisel tasandil. See mĂ€ngib mu mĂ”tetega ning paneb mind igapĂ€evaselt proovile. Kuna iga hommik ma Ă€rkan ĂŒles ja ma tunnen seda. Ma tunnen seda lĂ”pmatut valu igal pool. Ning see murrab mu sĂŒdame, kuna olen olnud sunnitud loobuma mĂ”nest asjast, mida ma armastan. On olnud nii palju pĂ€evi, kus ma tunnen, et ma lihtsalt ei jĂ”ua enam vĂ”idelda selle vastu, kuna see on vĂ”tnud minult juba nii palju. Ma olen kaotanud enda kĂ”rvalt inimesi, kes ma soovin, et poleks lahkunud. Kuid sel hetkel ma pean hakkama endale jĂ€llegi meelde tuletama, et on veel nii palju mille pĂ€rast vĂ”idelda ning et ehk lĂ”puks tasub see kĂ€ik Ă€ra. Ehk lĂ€heb siis kĂ”ik kergemaks. Ehk ĂŒhel pĂ€eval on kĂ”ik parem. Ning sel hetkel seisavad minu kĂ”rval inimesed, mes tĂ”eliselt hoolivad minust and armastavad mind kogu oma sĂŒdamega.

Ma saan öeda, et ma mĂ”istan neid, kelle jaoks on seda kĂ”ike liiga palju, et lihtsalt olemas olla minu jaoks, kuna ma olen olnud selles olukorras, kus ma olen sĂ”bra rollis. Ma siiani olen. Nii et ma saan sellest aru. See on raske. See murrab selle inimese vaimu, kes seda lĂ€bi elab. See inimene muutub niivĂ”rd palju, et vĂ”ib mĂ”nele tunduda lausa vÔÔrana. Kui enne oli see inimene pidavelt rÔÔmus ja positiivne inimene, kes uskus maailma headusesse siis ole valmis, et see muutub. On pĂ€evi, kus see inimene tahab olla ainult ĂŒksina ning on sulgenud oma mĂ”tetesse. Ning on pĂ€evi, kus ainuke asi mida ta ĂŒle kĂ”ige tahab, on olla inimeste keskel. Ning see on hetk, kus sa ei tohiks inimest kĂ”rvale heita. Kuna need mĂ”tted, mis hakkavad sel juhul ligi tulema, ei ole ilusad ega Ă”nnelikud.

Enda seisukohalt saan öelda, et see poleks minust aus, kui ma sĂŒĂŒdistaks neid inimesi lahkumises, kui see on liiga palju nende jaoks. Kuna see mis toimub mu enda peas on selline, kuhu ma ei tahaks kedagi lasta. See pole ilus. MĂ”ned pĂ€evad on sellised, kus ma tunnen, et ma suudan kogu maailmale vastu olla ning teistel pĂ€evadel on ainukeseks mĂ”tteks see, et ma ei tahaks enam kunagi ĂŒles Ă€rgata. Seda on karm öelda, kuid see on tĂ”si. 

Niisiis. See on siis kokkuvĂ”te sellest, mis on viimasel ajal toimunud ning millega ma pean hetkel hakkama saama. Ning lĂ”petuseks tahan veel paluda, et oleksid lahke ja sĂ”bralik nende vastu, kes on su ĂŒmber, sa ei vĂ”i kunagi teada, mis nende elus toimuda vĂ”ib ning paar head sĂ”na vĂ”ib olla nende pĂ€eva tipphetk. Ja kui sa nĂ€ed, et midagi pole Ă”igesti siis lihtsalt ole seal selle inimese jaoks, paku oma Ă”lga, millel nutta vĂ”i kĂ”rva, mis lihtsalt kuulaks, mis vaevab nende sĂŒdant. Ära kunagi tĂ”uka neid eemale. See teeb ainult asja hullemaks.

Kui sul on mingeid kĂŒsimusi vĂ”id tahad rohkem selle teema kohta teada, siis vĂ”ib mulle alati siia ja ka mu sotsiaalmeedia kontodel privaatselt kirjutada.

PS. Mainin ka Àra, et see postitus pole mÔeldud selle jaoks, et otsida tÀhelepanu vÔi haletsust, vaid selleks, et nÀidata ka teistele, et sellisest asjadest rÀÀkimine on tÀhtis. Et see pole mingisugune tabu asi, millest keegi ei tohiks rÀÀkida.

What’s in my everyday makeup bag + makeup routine

I am such a curious person and I love to see what other people have in their makeup bag and what are their everyday essentials. So I thought that why not show and talk a bit about my go to products with you so if you are a curious little peanut like me, then you are in a right place! 🙂

Ma olen hĂ€sti uudishimulik inimene ja mulle meeldib nĂ€ha ja teada saada, mis meigitooteid keegi kasutab ja milline on nende igapĂ€eva rutiin. Niiet otsustasin siis ka enda omad kirja panna niiet kui sa oled selline nagu mina siis see on Ă”ige postitus just sulle! 🙂

THE PREP AND BASE

I am not going in details about how I prep my face because I talked about it more in this post so if you want to know about it then go ahead and check it out!

For my base I don’t do anything too complicated as I prefer to sleep that extra 10-15 minutes instead of doing the full glam makeup so I have been keeping it real simple recently. I start of with Bourjois Radiance Reveal concealer. I have two different shades as I accidentally bought a slightly darker color a few weeks ago but thankfully the summer is coming and since I was on a holiday, it fits quite good.

So I am usually starting off with the darker shade (02 Beige), then go in with the same one but in a lighter shade (01 Ivory) and then add just a bit of the BeYu Light Reflecting concealer (in the shade 3). I added the final step because it helps to reflect a bit more and makes my undereye area appear a lot more brighter and highlighted. And to set it all in place I use the wet n wild Coverall pressed powder in the shade Fair.

Ma ei hakka minema detailidesse selle kohta, kuidas ma oma nÀgu igapÀevaselt nn ette valmistan meigi jaoks, kuna mÔni aeg tegin jube selle kohta postituse siin. 

MeigipÔhjaks ei tee ma igapÀevaselt mitte midagi keerulist, kuna ma eelistan magada see 10-15 minutit selle asemel, et hakata tegema midagi keerulisemat. Ma alustan Bourjois Radience Reveal peitekreemiga. Kuna ma mÔni nÀdal tagasi ostin kogemata natuke liiga tumeda siis hetkel kasutan mitu erinevat et saavutada just selline lÔpptulemus nagu ma tahan.

Nagu mainisin siis hetkel on mul kaks Bourjoisi peitekreemi ning kÔigepealt kasutan tumedamat tooni (02 Beige) ning seejÀrel lisan ka natuke heledamat (01 Ivory). SeejÀrel panen peale ka Beyu valguspeegeldavat peitekreemi (toonis nr 3), et aidata paista silmaalustel rohkem loomuliku ja sÀravamana. Ning selleks, et kÔik jÀÀks ilusti sinna kus vaja siis kasutan ka wet n wild puudrit toonis Fair.

EYES & BROWS

After the base is done is continue on doing my eyes and brows (if I feel like doing anything with my eyes lol). If I do feel like doing something with my eyes then it’s usually as simple as possible. I am doing a either a slightly darker crease using the Makeup Revolution Iconic Elements palette or just a shimmery gold eye using the NYX Hot Singles eyeshadow in the shade Fancy That. And after I just whip on some mascara on both my upper and lower lashes.

After my eyes are all done I just take the Makeup Revolution palette again and use the dark brown and grey tones to fill in my brows. Oh and a little tip – if you don’t want to waste money on brow gels then just spray a little bit of hair spray on your spoolie and then just brush it through your brows and they are all set for the day.

PĂ€rast seda, kui meigipĂ”hi on valmis siis ma liigun edasi silmade ja kulmude juurde (juhul kui mul on viitsimist midagi ĂŒldse silmadega teha haha). Ning kui mul isegi jĂ€tkub vahest viitsimist midagi oma silmadega teha siis on see vĂ”imalikult lihtne.
Tavaliselt teen ma tavalise heleda pĂ”hja ning tumedama silma vĂ€lisnurga, et tuua silmi rohkem esile. Ning selleks kasutan ma ĂŒldiselt Makeup Revolution Iconic Elements paletti. VĂ”i kui tunnen et tahan rohkem sĂ€delecamat silma siis kasutan natukene ainult NYX Hot Singles lauvĂ€rvi nimega Fancy That. Ning pĂ€rast seda lisan ka natuke ripsmeduĆĄĆĄi nii ĂŒlemistele kui ka alumistele ripsmetele.

PĂ€rast seda kui silmad on tehtud siis vĂ”tan jĂ€llegi Makeu Revolution paletti ning kasutan sealt tumepruudi ja halli, et kulmud korda teha. Ja siin ka ĂŒks mu enda lemmik nipp – kui sa ei taha raha raisata mingisuguse kulmugeeli peale ja kodus on juukselakk olemas, siis vĂ”ta oma spoolie (eesti keeles peaks see olema vist kulmukamm?? aga igastahes see asi mis nĂ€eb vĂ€lja nagu ripsmeduĆĄĆĄi ots) ning lase lakki sinna peale. SeejĂ€rel lihtsalt kammi sellega kulmud lĂ€bi ja need jÀÀvad ilusti omale kohale terveks pĂ€evaks.

HIGHLIGHT

To highlight my little cheekbones and add that bit of sparkle I need, I put on a bit of my Colourpop Super Shock Cheek highlighter in the color Monster which I absolutely adore. If you want to read about it more then a few months ago I wrote all my thoughts up about some of the Colourpop products I ordered and you can read it here!

Selleks, et oma pisikesi pÔsesarnu rÔhutada ning lisada sest natukest sÀra, mida vajan siis ma kasuta natukene oma Colourpop Super Shock Cheek sÀrapuudrit toonis Monster, mida ma ausalt öeldes tÀiesti jumaldan. Kui tahad selle kohta rohkem teada saada siis mul on selle kohta pÔhjalikum postitus siin!

LIPS

For my lips I just whip on some pretty natural pink color (like my essence lipstick in the shade 13 Love Me), the Baby Lips lip balm that also has that just a hint of color (in Cherry Me) or go a bit more bolder and fill in my lips using the essence lip liner in 06 Satin Mauve that is this really beautiful cooler toned purple.

Huulte jaoks kasutan tavaliselt tagasihoidlikumaid tooteid. Tavaliselt haaran ilusa roosa essence’i huulepulka (13 Love Me), Baby Lips huulepalsamit, millel on ka Ă”rn vĂ€rv juures (Cherry Me) vĂ”i kui tahan natuke julgemat vĂ€rvi kasutada siis kasutan ka essence huulepliiatsit (06 Satin Mauve), mis on hĂ€sti ilus kĂŒlmema tooniga lilla.

Okay, I think that this is all for today and as usual let me know if you liked the post and let’s keep the conversation going by all of you commenting on what are your go-to makeup essentials that you love and use every single day (only when you go out of course, no one uses makeup when they are just sitting at home all day right?).

Igastahes, see on tĂ€naseks kĂ”ik ning hoidke vestlust ĂŒleval öeldes, millised on sinu lemmikud meigitooted hetkel, mida armsatad ning kasutad igapĂ€evaselt.

How to choose a puppy for life?

Lately, I was asked when getting a puppy, how do you know which one to get.
Since it is a hard and important decision I thought that I am just going to point out some things that I used when I got my little baby boy.

  • Go to the place where you are thinking of getting your little one. You can’t really make a decision looking at a photo.
  • Spend a little time with all the puppies, you may never know who will be the one.
  • Listen to what your heart says. When it feels right, then that’s the right puppy for you.

Anyway that’s all the little tips I have for you. I know this is a really short post but I still hope it helped any of you when you are thinking of getting yourself a little one.

DSC_0583

Hiljuti kĂŒsiti minult, et kui kutsikat vĂ”tta siis kuidas valida seda Ă”iget. Niisiis mĂ”tlesin ĂŒles kirjutada mĂ”ned punktid, mis vĂ”ivad aidata sul valida just Ă”iget lemmikut enda jaoks ning mis aitasid teha valikut minul, kui sain oma pisikese sharpei-beebi.

  • Mine sinna kohapeale, kust kavatsed omale kutsika vĂ”tta. Sa ei saa sellist otsust teha vaid pilti vaadates.
  • Kohapeal olles veeda natuke aega kogu pesakonna kutsikatega, sa ei pruugi iial teada, milline on Ă”ige sinu jaoks.
  • Kuula oma sĂŒda. Kui sa tunned, et see pisike on kasvĂ”i natukene erilisem kui teised siis on see ilmselt sinu pisike sĂ”brake kogu eluks.

Igastahes, need on kĂ”ik punktid, mida minu arvates tuleks jĂ€lgida ja millega arvestada, kui valida endale lemmikut. Ma tean, et see polnud just kĂ”ige pikem postitus, kuid loodan siiski, et see aitas kasvĂ”i ĂŒhte inimest mingil mÀÀral.

Blooming Spring

As the spring is approaching, my wardrobe is getting more colorful and fun. So for today’s post I am going to show you two of my favorite outfits to wear. I got some inspiration from a brand called Adore Me (check out their instagram here!), as they are focused on embracing the beauty of women and feeling comfortable at all times. And I just have to mention that I absolutely love their activewear as it’s so beautiful and can make any girl feel instantly better about themselves (because they have a wide range of sizes so everyone should find something for them). But to keep in that I live in a place where even during the summer snows sometimes then I just wore longer jeans but both of these look really good also with shorts or a skater skirt.

NĂŒĂŒd kui kevad hakkab lĂ”puks kohale jĂ”udma ning ilmad muutuvad soojemaks siis muutub ka minu garderoob palju vĂ€rvilisemaks ja lĂ”busamaks. Niiet tĂ€nases postituses tahan teile nĂ€idata oma kahte lemmikumat riietust, mida kanda. Kuna eesti ilm muutub iga minutiga ja isegi suvel vĂ”ib hakata lund sadama, siis puhtalt enda tervise pĂ€rast otsustasin mĂ”lema puhul kasutada samu teksaseid, kuid mĂ”lemad sobivad vĂ€ga hĂ€sti kokku ka lĂŒhikeste pĂŒkste vĂ”i skater-stiilis seelikuga.

IMG_9767

And to tie both looks together I just did a really simple and natural makeup look and also decided to braid my hair into 7-8 smaller braids the night before to get these nice sort of like beach waves.

Ja selleks, et mĂ”lemad look‘id nn rohkem kokku panna siis tegin juurde ja vĂ€ga-vĂ€ga lihtsa ja loomuliku meigi. Ning juustesse otsustasin eelmisel Ă”htul punuda 7-8 pisemat patsi, et saavutada selline nn. rannaloki vĂ€ljanĂ€gamine.

#VantagePoint

I have always been a free spirit. I love to live life freely, just do what makes me happy and leave all the negativity behind me. I love to travel, to discover new places and culture, to meet new people and make new friends. That’s who I have always been.

And travelling is one of my favorite things in the world. It makes me happy. It lets me discover something new and exciting. And all the beauty I can capture to my brain forever. So recently where ever I go a camera is always a must for me. Some may think that those who take a lot of photos when travelling and put them up somewhere, just want to show that they have been there or something along those lines.

But for me it’s more of catching a beautiful moment I want to look back in the future. And carrying a hefty camera is always not the best choice. So a little compact camera that you can fit everywhere and offers you an amazing quality photos comes really handy. And this is exactly what the Light L16 Camera by Light.co can do for you! I was introduced to this camera recently and so far it seems like a dream for free spirits just like me so I am beyond excited to be a part of the #VantagePoint project!

Photography Talk

I feel like I haven’t talked much about why or when I started photography, you just kind of saw it come up in blog just out of the blue. But it’s a really big part of my life and it’s something that I want to share with the world. It’s my form of art.

Ma tunnen, et ma rÀÀgin selles pisikeses blogipesas ĂŒsna palju oma elust ja sellega seonduvatest mĂ”tetest, kuid ma pole kunagi seletanud kuidas ma hakkasin fotograafiaga tegelema ja ĂŒldse miks. See lihtsalt ĂŒhel pĂ€eval ilmus siia nagu puhtast Ă”hust. VĂ”i noh tegelikult mitte tĂ€ielikult, aga noh, saate ju aru 😀
Kuid fotograafial on praegusel hetkel minu elus ĂŒsnagi suur roll niiet ma tahan seda jagada teiega. Enda kunstivormi, midagi mis kuulub ainult mulle.

GR-Photos-18.jpg

Why? As you already know, I am quite an artsy person but getting the inspiration to draw is not the same as it used to be when I was younger. And dance, well, I love it but it’s not my art. It’s someone else’s creation, not mine. But I want to create something that is truly and only mine. No one else’s. I can create and develop the image I have in my mind, the images and creations that come to me.

Miks? Kui oled mind juba natuke pikemalt jĂ€lginud siis ilmselt tead juba, et ma olen ĂŒrna kunstiline inimene, kuid kahjuks pole mul viimasel ajal olnud absoluutselt mitte mingit inspriratsiooni joonistamise jaoks vĂ”rreldes sellega, mis see kunagi oli. Ning tantsimisega on lugu nii, et see pole minu loodud kunst. See on kellegi teise kujutlus ja visioon, mitte minu. Kuid ma tahan luua midagi, mis on ainult minu ning loodud minu nĂ€gemuse jĂ€rgi.

When? I really liked taking photos and making videos even when I was younger, just for fun with my friends. But then life got into the way and I sort of lost my passion for it until last year when I attended in a media camp where I and a group of other young creatives made our own news show. There was also a group of radio and blog people but I was in a television group. And I loved it there. I got my passion back. I got back what I loved and learned to be better. After the camp I just took photos with my phone as I didn’t have a proper working camera but as for my birthday and graduation gift I got my first DSLR camera 3 months later. I couldn’t be more happier. And after that I started learned everything about my camera and how to work with it to create what I have in my mind. And about six months later aka today, I am still learning. I am learning to be better and be my own creative mind.

Millal? Mulle on alati meeldinud teha pilte ja filmida, lihtslt lĂ”bu pĂ€rast koos sĂ”pradega. Kuid kuna tuli teisi asju ette siis see kirg fotograafia vastu kadus lihtsalt kuidagi Ă€ra. Kuid see tuli tagasi, kui osalesin ĂŒhes multimeedia laagris möödunud aprillis. See oli koht kus koos teiste noorte loojatega pidime kĂ”igest 2 pĂ€evaga suutma teha oma uudistesaate ehk siis kavandama ning vĂ€lja mĂ”tlema lood, valima vĂ€lja neist parimad, filmida ning lĂ”puks ka monteerida kĂ”ik kokku. Ning ma leidsin taas selle pisiku nii fotograafia kui ka filmiduse vastu (niivĂ”rd-kuivĂ”rd vĂ”ib minu pisikesi videojuppe nimetada just filmiduseks, aga las see jÀÀb, see oli parim, mis ma selle aja kohta oskasin :D). Igastahes September oli lĂ”puks see aeg kui sain lĂ”puks oma esimese ihaldatud ning kauaoodatud peegelkaamera. Ning pĂ€rast seda olen lihtsalt Ă”ppinud ja katsetanud kĂ”ike ise – minu arust kĂ”ige parem Ă”ppimise viis. Kuid ma Ă”pin iga pĂ€evaga jĂ€rjest rohkem ning saan ka jĂ€rk-jĂ€rgult jĂ€rjest paremaks.

Beauty essentials for lazy days

I am probably not the only girl who prefers to sleep in extra 20-30 minutes instead of doing my makeup and hair in the morning. I am a lazy girl in the mornings. But so that I wouldn’t look like a total zombie on school I have figured out a quick 10 minute beauty routine for myself so I could get to school on time but still look semi-put together (if that’s even a word lol).

Ma pole ilmselt ainuke tĂŒdruk, kes eelistab pigem hommikuti 20-30 minutit lisaks magada selle asemel, et tĂ”usta ĂŒles ja sĂ€ttida ehk teha ilus ja korrlik meik ning soeng. Aga selleks, et ma ei nĂ€eks vĂ€lja nagu tĂ€ielik zombie siis ma olen enda jaoks vĂ€lja nuputanud kiire 10 minutilise meigi-soengurutiini, et ma jĂ”uaks Ă”igeks ajaks kooli ja nĂ€eksin enam-vĂ€hem vĂ€lja, nagu ma oleks tegelikult ka oma vĂ€limusega vaeva nĂ€inud.

I totally forgot to add my moisturizer but you can read all about it here. So as I mentioned I start off by applying my Lumene Basic Blue day cream before any makeup touches my face.

Ma totaalselt unustasin lisada piltidele ka oma nÀokreemi, aga kuna selle kohta on juba postitus olemas siis saad selle kohta tÀpselmalt lugeda juba siit. Igastahes enne kui grammigi meiki mu nÀgu puudutab siis kasutan ka Lumene Basic Blue pÀevast nÀokreemi.

After that I take the Bell Skin Camouflage concealer palette to cover up everything I want. I apply the green color anywhere where I have more redness and where I have any spots, and the red one goes under my eyes because it does a great job of covering up my dark circles. I actually secretly think that even when I do get to sleep in, they are there. They have settled in pretty well 😀

JÀrgmiseks vÔtan ma Bell Skin Camouflage kreemja peitekreemi paletti, et katta Àra kÔik, mida tahan. Alustuseks vÔtan rohelise vÀrvi ning panen seda igale poole, kus mul esineb rohkem punetust vÔi mittesoovitud punnide peale, et neid paremini Àra katta. JÀrgmisena vÔtan punase vÀrvi ning kasutan seda silmade all, et lahti saada tumedatest silmaalustest. 

For that extra coverage under my eyes I also apply Bonjour Radiance Reveal concealer in the shade ivory. I also put it a little over my spots and near my nose where I have a lot of redness, especially during winter-spring transitioning time.

Selleks, et saada seda lisa katvust, mida ma tunnen, et mĂ”nikord on hĂ€dasti vaja, kasutan ma Bonjour Radiance Reveal peitepulka toonis Ivory. Lisaks panen seda natuke ka punnide peale ning nina ĂŒmbrusesse, kuna sealt muutub nahk eriti punaseks sellisel ajal nagu praegu.

Next up I take my Makeup Revolution Iconic Elements eyeshadow palette and take the dark brown and the gray color to fill in my brows. I have found that these colors work a lot more for me than the actual brow colors I had just because these are more cold toned while the others were really warm ones. And I don’t like warm toned brows, they just don’t fit me.

JĂ€rgmisena vĂ”tan ma Makeup Revolution Iconic Elements lauvĂ€rvide paletti ning kasutan sealt tumepruuni ning hallikat vĂ€rvi, et tĂ€ita kergelt kulmud Ă€ra. Ma olen leidnud, et need sobivad mulle just kĂ”ige paremini, kuna neil on pigem kĂŒlmem alatoon kui samas pĂ€ris kulmuvĂ€rvidel, mida varem kasutasin oli just soojem alatoon, mis vĂ€ga ei sobinud mulle.

For my lashes I use the Maybelline the Colossal Volum’ Express mascara in black. It gives me really beautiful, thick and longer lashes that I absolutely love. I apply it on to my upper and bottom lashes to make my eyes really stand out.

Ripsmete jaoks vĂ”tan ma Maybelline the Colossal Volum’ Express musta ripsmetuĆĄĆĄi. See annab mulle ilusad, tihedamad ja pikemad ripsmed, mida ma armastan. Ma kasutan seda nii oma ĂŒlemiselt kui ka alumistel ripsmetel, kuna see toob mu silmad eriti esile.

_MG_8570

And of course I can’ forget to moisturize my lips as well so I am using the Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me. I love how it makes my lips really soft and also gives them just a hint of color.

Ja loomulikult ei saa unustada ka oma huuli. Nendel kasutan Maybelline Baby Lips toonis Cherry Me. Mulle meeldib kuidas see teeb mu huuled samal ajal pehmeks, kuid samas annab ka neile ilusa Ôrna roosaka tooni.

Also, If I feel that I have an extra minute and feeling a bit more fancy then I like to apply Manhattan Good to Glow liquid highlighter in Satin.

Ning kui ma tunnen, et mul on mĂ”ni lisaminut aega ja tahan midagi ekstra lisada siis panen natukene ka Manhattan’i Good to Glow sĂ€rapuudrit toonis Satin pĂ”sesarnadele, et neid rohkem vĂ€lja tuua  ja panna oma nĂ€guĂŒleĂŒldiselt rohkem sĂ€rama.

Now to hair – as I am the laziest girl in the world when it comes to washing my hair so a good dry shampoo and a hair tie are my go to hair pieces. I don’t use the Batiste dry shampoo very often, only in times when it’s really needed.

NĂŒĂŒd juuste juurde – kuna ma olen vĂ€gagi laisk kui asi puudutab juuste pesemist siis ĂŒks hea kuivĆĄampoon ja patsikumm on mu parimad sĂ”brad. Ma ei kasuta Batiste kuivĆĄampooni just tihti, aga ta on alati olemas kui seda kĂ”ige hullemini vaja on.

Fitting in

Why is it that some people are more popular than others? Because they are more beautiful or smarter? Or is it just something that makes everyone want to be around them?

I am definitely the one who feels out of place all the time, like I don’t fit in anywhere anymore, especially in school. Especially since fall.

You know why?

Oh of course not. How could you? I rarely mention that. It’s because all my friends are in the same school as I am but in different classes. So that mans that I almost never see them. And that’s where my problem is. I am just drifting more further away from them as the days pass by. They find new friends. They move on.

But I don’t know how to do that.

I don’t know how to get so close with someone who I can tell them all my secrets and know that they keep them. I don’t trust people.

So I am alone. I spend most of my weekend at home behind my computer or reading. Of course it may sound so cozy and nice but when it’s been like this for over eight months, you’ll get really lonely.

I can never blame them. They didn’t do anything wrong.

But I want to fit in. I want to go out with my friends on weekends.
I want to laugh from the heart. I want to laugh until my eyes are tearing up. Until my face and stomach hurt from laughing.

I haven’t done that for so long. And I really miss it.

If you have any suggestions or tips on how to get over these kinds of feelings, I am all ears.

Miks on nii, et mÔned on lihtsalt populaarsemad kui teised? Sest nad on ilusamad vÔi targemad? VÔi on neis lihtsalt midagi lisaks, mis tahab panna teisi nende lÀheduses olema?

Ma olen ĂŒks nendest, kes tunneb, et nagu ei sobi vĂ€ga teiste hulka, eriti just koolis. Eriti alates sĂŒgisest.

Tead miks?

Loomulikult mitte. Aga kuidas sa saaksidki? Ma ei rÀÀgi sellest just kuigi palju. Igastahes, kĂ”ik, kellega varem suhtlesin, on nĂŒĂŒd kĂŒll ikka samas koolis, aga erinevates suundades ehk siis ega neid vĂ€ga ikkagi ei nĂ€e. Ja siit saabki mu probleem alguse. Ma tunnen, et ma eemaldun neist iga pĂ€evaga ĂŒha kaugemale. Ja nad leiavad uued sĂ”brad. Nad liiguvad edasi.

Loomulikult ma ei arvagi, et kogu maailm peaks minu ĂŒmber keerlema, ma pole nii enesekeskne. Ma tean, et neil on on oma elu ja see lihtsalt on nii. Kuid see ei tĂ€henda, et ma igatseks neid. See ei muuda kunagi seda tunnet.

Aga ma lihtsalt ei oska seda.

Ma ei oska inimesi usaldada, mistĂ”ttu on ka raskem sĂ”pru saada. ÜkskĂ”ik kui vĂ€ga ma ka tahaks.

Niiet ma olen ĂŒksi. Ma veedan peaaegu iga nĂ€dalavahetuse kodus kas siis arvuti vĂ”i raamatu taga. See vĂ”ib tunduda mugav ja tore, aga pikapeale see enam selline pole. Ning see viib mind pideva ĂŒksinduse tundeni.

Aga ma tahan sobida kuhugi. Ma tahan olla vabal ajal koos sĂ”pradega. Ma tahan naerda kogu sĂŒdamest. Ma tahan naera, kuni mul hakkavad pisarad voolama. Kuni mu nĂ€gu ja kĂ”ht juba valutavad.

Ma pole seda nii pikka aega teinud. Ma igatsen seda tohutult.

Kui teil on mingisugust nĂ”u mulle, kuidas saada sellest tundest ĂŒle vĂ”i nippe kuidas hakata inimesi uuesti rohkem usaldama, siis ma olen ĂŒks suurkĂ”rv.

Skincare Favorites + DIY Rose Water

I have battled with acne for years by now and tried many products without any results or results that give me a skin that’s even worse than it was before. But thanks to that I have gotten to know my skin pretty well and know what it likes. First of all, my skin is pretty sensitive so many products don’t fit for me. But I just have to mention that my all time favorite makeup remover is the Garnier Micellar water for sensitive skin.

Ma olen vĂ”idelnud aknega juba pĂŒris mitu aastat ja olen proovinud hulgaliselt erinevaid tooteid, et leida just see, mis sobiks mulle. Aga just tĂ€nu sellele, et olen katsetanud nii palju erinevaid tooteid siis oled saanud teada, mis mu nahale tĂ€pselt meeldib ja mis mitte. Ja asja teeb veel raskemaks veel see, et mul on ka ĂŒsna tundlik nĂ€onahk, mis vĂ”ib mĂ”ne toote kasutamisel muutuda sĂŒgelevaks ja punaseks. Aga tahan kiiresti ka mainida, et kui ka sul on tundlik nĂ€onahk siis ma olen leidnud, et parimaks meigieemaldajaks on Garnier’i Mitselaarvesi.

I started using all of these about a month or so ago and my skin is doing pretty well compared with how it was before. But one of my new skincare favorites has to be my DIY rose water! I saw this on Instagram and I knew I just had to try it out and I am absolutely obsessed with it. I love to spay it on my face twice a day – in the morning and before going to bed. It is also great for spraying after you finish your foundation as it sets everything in place a lot more. Although be aware not to spray too much or it kind of starts to come off later.

How to DIY your own rose water?

  • Take off all the blossoms and wash them gently in normal temperature water
  • Put the blossoms into a bowl and pour hot water on top just so it covers about half of the bowl
  • Put a plate on top and let it sit about 20 minutes
  • Take a spraying bottle and pour the mixture in, you can also add some blossoms for making it look more pretty
  • That’s it!

Ma alustasin kĂ”ikide nende toodete kasutamist umbes kuu aega tagasi ja see on muutunud palju paremaks vĂ”rreldes sellega, milline see enne oli. Aga ĂŒheks mu uueks nĂ€ohooldus tooteks peab olema see isetehtud roosivesi! Ma nĂ€gin seda tĂŒkk aega tagasi Instagramis ja teadsin kohe, et ma lihtsalt pean ise ka proovima seda teha ja ma olen ausalt öeldes sellest vĂ€ga vaimustuses. Mulle meeldib seda kasutada tavaiselt kaks korda pĂ€evas – hommikul ja Ă”htul enne magama minekut. Seda sobib ka suurepĂ€raselt kasutada kui kinnitusspreina, kuna see tĂ”esti hoiab meiki paremini nĂ€o peal ja samas ka vĂ€rskendab seda. Kuigi tuleks jĂ€ljida, et seda mitte liiga palju pihustada, kuna muidu muutub nĂ€gu liiga vesiseks ja vĂ”ib meigi Ă€ra rikkuda.

Kuidas teha isetehtud roosivett?

  • Eemalda kĂ”ik Ă”ied ĂŒhelt roosilt ja pese neid Ă”rnalt keskmise temperatuuriga vee all
  • Pane pestud Ă”ied kaussi ning kalla kuuma vett peale nii palju et see tĂ€idaks Ă€ra umbes pool kausist
  • Pane taldrik kausi peale ning lase sellel umbes 20 minutit maha jahtuda
  • VĂ”ta tĂŒhi spreipudel ja kalla segu sisse, kaunistuseks vĂ”id panna ka mĂ”ned Ă”ied pudelisse
  • Ja ongi kĂ”ik!

The next product is something that is probably quite hated by many people but it works for me. It has made my skin look so much more better and a lot more softer. But I never use it during the day time, only before I go to bed as it is pretty oily so I don’t like wearing it even on weekends when I am home and on every other day I would just look like a total mess as makeup doesn’t go well with it.

JĂ€rgmine toode on ilmselt ĂŒpris vihatud mitmete inimeste poolt, aga minu naha jaoks see lihtsalt töötab. See on muutnud mu naha ĂŒldise olukorra palju paremaks, kui see oli mĂ”ni kuu tagasi, ning muudab naha ka palju pehmemaks. Kui ma ei kasuta seda kunagi pĂ€evasel ajal, kuna see jĂ€tab naha ĂŒpris “rasvaseks” siis pole see just mu lemmikuim toode, mida pĂ€eval kasutada, kuid kuna öösiti see mind ei hĂ€iri siis kasutangi seda ainult enne magama minekut.

_MG_6828

The last but definitely not the least product what I regularly use is the LUMENE Basic Blue day cream. This is my go-to product right now as it gives the right amount of moisture to my skin, controls my olis a little bit better and as a result of these it also helps to apply my makeup pretty nicely. I have nothing but good words to say about it.

Viimaseks, aga kindlasti mitte halvemaks tooteks, mida ma igapĂ€evaselt kasutan on LUMENE Basic Blue pĂ€evakreem. See on hetkel mu go-to kreem, kuna see annab mu nahale tĂ€pselt piisava koguse niisutust, kontrollib naha rasususe taset paremini ehk ei lase mul nagu praepann pĂ€eva lĂ”puks vĂ€lja nĂ€ha ja nende tulemusena on parem ka meiki peale kanda. ÜhesĂ”naga, mul pole mitte midagi halba selle kohta öelda.
