My Bucket List

So bucket lists. Why do we do them? In my opinion when something is written down, people are more likely to do it. Simply because they see it and it makes them want to cross it off the list as soon as possible. Because who wouldn’t like to cross things off the lists, right? Well, that’s at least my opinion about this whole thing.

And for today’s post I thought I would share with you some of the things that I want to do during my lifetime. This is just a little glimpse of it because there are many more things I want to do.

ps! Everything I have written doesn’t have a specific timeline, these are just the things I really, from the bottom of my heart, want to do at some time in my life.

  1. Learn how to surf
  2. Do some kind of charity or voluntary work
  3. Study abroad
  4. Perform alone publicly in front of 40 to 50 people (I am very afraid of public performance)
  5. Draw/paint on the old streets of Paris.
  6. Make a dance video with my own original choreography
  7. Reach 500 blog followers
  8. Travel alone (preferably to Australia, England, France or Spain)
  9. Adopt a dog
  10. Ask a guy out
  11. Go on a roadtrip with my best friends
  12. Fall in love unconditionally
  13. Spend a whole day without any kind of electronics
  14. Get an actual job
  15. Travel to 3 different countries that I haven’t been to before during a course of one summer
  16. Get into art school
  17. Move away to somewhere warm
  18. Go back to England to see the Victoria & Albert’s Art Museum
  19. Learn to speak another language fluently
  20. Visit Disneyland
  21. Visit Harry Potter World
  22. Learn how to cook at least five dishes from memory
  23. Learn how to actually play guitar correctly
  24. Play golf
  25. Try living a minimalist life for 14 days
  26. Learn 10 phrases in French or in Spanish
  27. Go to Ed Sheeran’s concert
  28. Go to Coachella
  29. Photograph a wedding
  30. Try the 3-day smoothie challenge
  31. Record a song
  32. Write a little novel
  33. Jump in to the water from a cliff
  34. Go to fashion week

So that’s a little sneak peek of what I want my life to be life.

What do you want to do?

Whatever you do, the most important thing to remember is to have fun. Enjoy all of it. You do only have this one life so use it wisely.

Best summer ’17 memories

The summer has reached its end and I can’t believe how fast it want by. It’s crazy. So I thought that I would quickly sum it all up and show you some of my best memories that I have of this summer. No long talk, let’s get into it!

All of these were taken on my trip to Poland and with some of the most amazing people I met there. The first one marks my first plane ride all on my own, I was so anxious but also excited for it. I remember how I got to the airport at the last minute. I thought that I was really late. I was supposed to be up at 4.30 and in the airport at 4.50 to have some extra time, just in case. But instead I woke up at 5 in the morning. I got ready in 5 minutes and grabbed my breakfast on the way. But I still made it in time (and had to wait for over 10 min to get on the plane, and then another 15 min sat on the plane before it took off).

Second and forth one were taken in Warsaw when we had hours to spend in the city. The second one was when we got a little bored and just started to take some photos of each other (I am there with Anastasia, another girl from the estonian group and whom I got quite close to). We were discovering the old town and having lunch in a quite traditional Polish restaurant before heading back to get our luggage and heading to Nieborow with rest of the group.

And the third one was taken in the middle of the polish youth exchange with my babes from Macedonia and the best guy from Romania. They were few of those who I got really close to. |09.-17.06.17 |

Those two photos were taken on a little event called Photowalk X VLND what was basically an event for photographers to discover some new interesting places in Viljandi (my hometown), take cool interesting photos of each other (or someone doing their magic) and to, also, get to know other photographers around this area. I had so much fun, and to be honest I got more comfortable shooting in public. In a sense that I get super self-conscious when I am photographing something/someone and when people are around. But I got over myself there haha. | 22.07.17 |

1-127

At a family picnic, holding my little baby cousin. She is the most adorable little one, but also the sassiest one haha. She’s such a princess.
For me, family is everything. And just sitting down in a quiet little place near the woods and a lake was just perfect. I got to spend time with relatives I hadn’t seen for a little while and it was so good to just spend some quality time with them. | 30.07.17 |

All taken on my latest Erasmus+ project in Laidze, Latvia.

First photo. On Latvian night where the people showed us old Latvian traditions. Which one of them was to put honey in a fire. On the second photo there is our favorite cat from the trip – we named him Simba – who always followed us around.

The third and fourth photo are taken in the first official day of the project during/between some bonding games with some awesome people from the estonian team. 🙂 | 06.-14.08.17 |

These were taken for an article for a local online magazine VLND and I had the pleasure to photograph the IX dance and song festival for people with special needs. It was so heartwarming to see so many people full of love and joy even though the weather wasn’t on our side at all times. They danced and sang through the rain and not once complained. When I left the event I was so happy and excited that it was ME whose photos of this amazing event, were published and seen by so many people. | 26.08.17 |

So, these were some of the brightest but there were so many good ones that this would go on and on for ever. I had a really good time travelling around, spending time with some old friends but also with friends I made during my time abroad. Right at this moment, I couldn’t imagine my life without them. It was a summer full of laughter, happiness, the ups and the downs. But it was definitely a good one.

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?

1-23.jpg

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 päris tükk aega tagasi, aga kuna mina ja WordPress pole viimasel ajal just kõige paremini läbi saanud siis oli pisike probleem – nimelt iga kord kui üritasin neid pilte siia üles panna, siis kvaliteet oli nii halb, et ma lihtsalt ei suutnud veenda ennast neid üles panema. Ning jah, pildid on muidu super kvaliteediga nii et viga peab kuskil siin leiduma. Iseasi, aga kus siis ikkagi täpsemalt.

Igastahes, siin on siis mõned minu lemmikud pildid, mis nädala 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 üritan suve jooksul rohkem siia kirjutada ning pilte riputada, kui olen seda siiamaani teinud, kuna hetkel on see, noh.. ilusti öeldes, võiks ma endast siin rohkem märku anda. 😀

Igastahes, ma pole kidel kui paljud teist jälgivad mind ka instagrammis (kui sa seda juba ei tee siis, mida sa üldse oma eluga teed?? haha nali-nali :D), aga kes jälgivad, siis võisite juba näha story’s minu pisikest muutust. Kuna see enam sedavõrd saladus pole siis, mis mõtet on siin keerutada – mõned päevad tagasi lõikasin oma pikad blondid juuksed maha ning värvisin need lillakas pruuniks. Ma ei jõua juba oodata, kuni te näete ka uusi pilte nendega sest need näevad nii lahedad välja, ma olen ise väga rahul (kuigi mõned arvavad, et ma olen natuke hulluks läinud :D).

Kuigi kui aus olla siis pole pilte veel tegemagi läinud, aga ma olen lihtsalt ise ka juba nii elevil, plaan on minna juba neljapäeval tegema nii et ehk saab nädala lõpuks kätte ja saate siis tulemust oma kogu hiilguses näha.

Aga enne kui oma blondid kiharad maha lõikasin ning ära värvisin siis läksin ja tegin sõbrannaga veel viimased pildid pikkade juustega. Ning mõtlesin oma lemmikuid siis ka teiega jagada. Okei, aitab juba jutust, nautige! 🙂

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.

Nüüd kui kevad hakkab lõpuks kohale jõudma ning ilmad muutuvad soojemaks siis muutub ka minu garderoob palju värvilisemaks ja lõbusamaks. Niiet tänases postituses tahan teile näidata oma kahte lemmikumat riietust, mida kanda. Kuna eesti ilm muutub iga minutiga ja isegi suvel võib hakata lund sadama, siis puhtalt enda tervise pärast otsustasin mõlema puhul kasutada samu teksaseid, kuid mõlemad sobivad väga hästi kokku ka lühikeste pükste või skater-stiilis seelikuga.

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 mõlemad look‘id nn rohkem kokku panna siis tegin juurde ja väga-väga lihtsa ja loomuliku meigi. Ning juustesse otsustasin eelmisel õhtul punuda 7-8 pisemat patsi, et saavutada selline nn. rannaloki väljanägamine.

Life as a dancer

Dance. It’s something that has had a huge impact on my life yet I haven’t talked about it much in here. But I think it’s finally time to talk more about it.

Those who know me, know that I have been involved with dance since I was a little girl. I started with gymnastics, went on to learn more about show dance and ended up with street dance. They all made an impact on me and made me the way I am. It has taught me to be more patient, to work hard for what I want and to dream big.

It formed my personality and it has made me more confident. Because it takes a lot of confidence to step up on that stage, perform, show your emotions and give your absolute everything. Just before I get up on that stage, I feel major jiggles on my stomach but it makes me feel alive.

But when the room goes dark and just seconds before the music starts, I feel the spotlight, I feel that all the hours I have spent practising and working for that one moment, that it was all worth it. That all the pain and the tears were worth it in the end. And you can’t imagine how all this happiness bursts out and the tears and shakes start to happen when you get the result you have hoped for so long. It feels unreal. It feels like it isn’t even happening to me.

Tants. Miski, mis mõjutab mu elu suurel hulgal, kuid millest pole siin peaaegu et üldse rääkinud. Aga viimaks on aeg, või mis te arvate?

Need, kes mind isiklikult tunnevad, teavad, et ma olen tanntsimisega tegelenud juba väiksest saati. Alustasin küll täiesti teistsuguse stiiliga, aga unustanud ma seda sellegi poolest pole ehk siis kõigepealt hakkasin tegelema iluvõimlemisega, edasi õppisin show-tantsu ning lõpuks olen jõudnud tänavatantsuni välja. Iga periood kui tegelesin nende erinevate stiilidega erinevates stuudiotes, on jätnud oma jälje.

Need kõik on mõjutanud mu elu erinevatel aegadel ja teinud mind sellisekss nagu ma olen praegu. Need õpetasid mulle suuremat kannatlikust, töötama selle nimel mida ma tahan ja unistama suurelt. Tantsimine on mulle andunud ja õpetanud nii palju. See on andnud mulle enesekindlust, rõõmu, tahet püüelda kõrgemale ja teinud mind tugevamaks. Ja seda kõike on vaja kui sa astud lavale.

Kui sa astud sellele lavale, esitad kogu oma viimaste kuude töö selle lühikese kolme minuti jooksul, kui annad endast kõik, et teha oma suurimad unistused teoks. Ja kõigest sekundid pimeduses enne seda kui muusika mängima läheb, tunnen, et kogu see töö ja vaev oli lõpuks seda väärt. Ja kõige parem, uskumatum ja emotsionaalsem moment on see kui, saad tulemuse, mide oled nii kaua oodanud ning mille nimel tööd teinud. See on kõige uskumatum tunne maailmas.

Snowy Days

Hello again! I know it’s been A WHILE since I last wrote anything in here but if you have been following me all over social media then you would know why I was away so long.

To cut a long-ish story shorter, I needed to take some time off to focus more on my schoolwork and also photography – it’s something that relaxes me and let’s my creative juices go wild haha. But yeah, I am super happy to be back and I though what a better way to start again is to show you what I have been up to recently so there will be TONS of photography posts coming up!

PS! If you always want to see the photos before they end up here or to keep up with my life then follow me on instagram as I am the most active there at the moment 🙂

Tervist taas! Ma tean, et on möödunud juba LIIIIGA pikk aeg, kui viimati midagi siia kirjutasin, aga kui oled mind teistel sotsiaalmeedia kontodel jälginud, siis ilmselt juba tead, miks ma eemal olin.

Lühemalt öeldes oli mul siis vaja natuke aega maha võtta, et keskenduda rohkem koolile ja fotograafiale – see on minu jaoks väga rahustav ja laseb mul olla loovam. Aga jah, ma olen super õnnelik, et saan jälle tagasi olla ning ma arvasin, et pole paremat viisi naaseda, kui näidata iga postitusega natuke rohkem, mille kallal ma olen viimasel ajal töötanud, niiet tulemas on üsnagi palju fotograafiaga seotud postitusi lähitulevikus tulemas!

PS! Kui tahad näha pilte enne kui need siia jõuavad (kui üldse jõuavad) siis ole kindel, et jälgid mind ka instagramis, kuna olen seal viimasel ajal kõige aktiivsem olnud. 🙂

Hello 2017

It’s been almost a week since the new year started and I can’t believe that I haven’t written anything in here for so long. But the reason for that is because I needed to rest and clear my head. I was thinking about what the future holds for me but then I also realized that there is no chance for me to know that. We don’t know what the future holds for us, whether there will be great joy or the sadness that eats you from the inside out. No one can really tell what is coming so all we have left to do is to go with the flow and see where we end up.

Life is a funny thing in a sense that most of us think that we know what is coming or what they think is going to happen in their life. But usually it all goes the other way. We don’t always get what we want, we have to work hard to get it. And to top it all of, it adds more pressure, you are judged by everything you say or don’t say, do or don’t do and so on and so forth.

So what I basically wanted to say is that make this year all about you, be a little selfish sometimes. This year just forget everyone and just do whatever the heck you want, there is no chance that you can ever please everyone, believe me I know that. There will always be people who try to tear you down no matter what so don’t you ever try them to get to you, you are better than that.

Also Happy new year everyone and I hope that it will be an amazing one!

DSC_0713.JPG

Nüüdseks on möödunud peaegu et juba nädal sellest kui uus aasta algas ning ma ei suuda uskuda, et ma pole nii pikalt juba siia kirjutanud. Aga selle põhjuseks oli see, et ma vajasin aega puhkamiseks ja et korrastada oma mõtteid. Ma hakkasin mõtlema sellele, mis hakkab toimuma ka minu jaoks tuleval aastal, aga pean tõdema, et seda ei saa ma mitte mingil moel teada, ma ei tea mis on tulevikul minu jaoks varuks. Mitte keegi ei ole võimeline teadma seda ning seetõttu peame me lihtsalt leidma endale mugava asendi ja minema vooluga kaasa ning vaatama, mis juhtub edasi. 

Elu on üks selline naljakas asi selles mõttes, et paljud meist arvavad, et nad teavad, mis on tulekul või mis hakkab nende elus juhtuma. Aga tavaliselt lähevad asjad hoopis teistpidi. Me ei saa alati, mida me tahame, me peame selle nimel vaeva nägema. Et lisada asjadele veel ka vürtsi siis kõik inimesed meie ümber arvustavad meid selle põhjal, mida me ütleme või ei ütle, teeme või ei tee ja nii edasi.

Niiet mida ma tegelikult koge selle jutuga mõtlesin on see, et tee see aasta teistsuguseks. Unusta teised ning tee, mida just sina tahad, ükskõik mis see ka poleks. Ole vahelduseks isekas ja ole sina ise. Ära lase teiste arvamustel ennast muusta või su tuju halvaks teha, sest usu mind kui ma ütlen, et vahet pole mida sa ka teeks, seal on alati olemas inimesi, kes sind kritiseerivad isegi kui selleks pole otsest põhjust. Ära lase nende sõnadel või tegudel mõjutada ennast, sa oled siis juba selle võrra neist parem inimene.

Ja imelist uut aastat teile kõigile ning ma loodan, et see tuleb super!

What if everything keeps going wrong?

I think everyone has had the bad days – the days when you just feel like everything goes wrong no matter what and you are just stuck and waiting for the day to finally over.

I can honestly say that I have had quite a few days like this, especially recently. It just feels like I try too hard to make things good but it ends up not being that. And because of that I also haven’t felt quite like myself, like I am disconnected from everyone and everything. It seems a little strange but it’s just that. I feel like I am sitting on the sidelines while everything else just keeps moving forward. So what to do? How do connect with your inner self again and find peace?

All I can say that there is no easy solution, no easy fixes. You just have to let go of everything that bothers you to be happier again. It’s not easy because sometimes you don’t even know what exactly bothers you so (obviously) it’s hard to let go.
You have to take some time off of the life around you and do what makes you happy. For me it’s lighting some candles and cuddling up with a good book to distract me. Oh and taking a hot bath and watching a movie is also something that relaxes me although I don’t do that nearly enough.

What are your tips & tricks to make peace with your inner self?

Ma arvan, et kõigil on halbu päevi – päevi, kus sa tunned, et ükskõik mida sa ka ei teeks, kõik läheb ikka valesti ja seejärel lihtsalt ootad, et saabuks õhtu, et magama minna ja see kohutav päev lõpuks seljataha jätta.

Mul on olnud just viimasel ajal väga palju selliseid päevi. Kõik lihtsalt läheb valesti ja ma ei oska kuidagi seda parandada, sest isegi kui üritan teen lihtsalt kõik hullemaks. Niiet parem on kõik rahule jätta. Ning selle tõttu ma pole tundnud nagu ma oleks mina ise, nagu ma oleks oma kehast eemal ning vaatan kõike juhtuvalt kõrvalt ja imestan, miks asjad on nii nagu nad on. Niisiis, mida teha? Kuidas sa lood selle ühenduse oma sisemise minaga ja leiad rahu? (jah, ma mõistan, et see jutt võib kõlada väga hipilikult, aga las ta jääb.. :D)

Ma saan vaid öelda, et sellele pole mingit imekiiret ja lihtsalt lahendust. Kuid kõige tähtsam sellise olukorra juures on lihtsalt lahti lasta kõigest, mis sind vaevab. Ning loomulikult on parimaks ravimiks alati ka nende asjade tegemine, mis sulle meeldib või siis rahustavad sind. Minu jaoks on sellised tegevused näiteks küünlate süütamine ning seejärel tekkide alla pugemine ja matta ennast mõnda heasse raamatusse. Ja loomulikult pole mitte midagi lõõgastavamat kui teha üks hea kuum vann ja panna mängima mõni mõnus film.

Millised on sinu nipid, et saavutada rahu oma sisemise minaga?

Testing New Products: Essence Matte Red Lipstick

Hello everybody! Since it’s officially the month of Christmas, fairy lights and all things red and green I wanted to give you a little review of a Christmas time must-have aka a red lipstick. I have always been too scared to try out red lips as they are quite risky and not necessary everybody can pull them off, but this year I have wanted to step out of my comfort zone and try out new things. As I did a few months ago. If you are following me on my YouTube channel then you might have noticed that I firstly tried out red lips in late September or October, I am not even sure right now. But then I just used a lip liner to see if I would even wear it anywhere or if I would pull it off but since I now feel like it does fit me and gives me hell of a lot more confidence I got a real lipstick haha. I wanted the matte one because I don’t like these kind of too shiny or creamy ones. Okay, I am just going to stop the chit-chat and get on to the review.

Heii!! Kuna nüüd on amtlikult jõulu, jõulutulede ja loomulikult värvii punane kuu siis ma tahan teile tutvustada ühte jõuluaja must-have asja ehk punast huulepulka. Mina isiklikult olen alati pigem punastest huultest eemale hoidnud, kuna võisin juba ette ennustada kui palju mässamist sellega on. Jaa loomulikult olin ka arvamusel, et ma ei suudaks seda iial välja kanda. Kuid see aasta ma olen üldse tahtnud proovida teha asju, mis on mind varem hirmutanud. Ma tahsin kogu selle aasta jooksul ennast proovile panna ja vaadata, mis juhtub, ning siimaani on ainult häid asju juhtunud. Näiteks see, et paar päeva tagasi möödus 10 kuud kui alustasin selle pisikese blogiga siin. Igastahes, nagu ma mainisin siis tahtsin ennast proovile panna ja proovida kanda ka punaseid huuli. Kõigepealt alsutasin sellega, et ostsin Essence’i huulelaineri, mida kasutasin huulepulga asemel. Ning peamiselt ainult YouTube’i videode jaoks. Linna ega kooli veel ei julgenud minna. Kuid täna tegin ma ka selle ära ehk siis rokkisin punaseid huuli koolis. Ma poleks kunagi arvanud, et lihtsalt punase värvi kandmine võib anda nii palju enesekindlust. Igastahes sellle loba jutuga lõpetan nüüd ja asume siis arvustuse juurde.

This is how the lipstick is described on the website. || See on kuidas on huulepulka kirjeldatud Essence’i kodulehel.

These new matte lipsticks easily glide over the lips with gorgeous, high impact color. The creamy texture gives you a long lasting matte finish without drying out the lips

Since it is a drugstore product the packaging is really simplistic matte cover. Although I would like if the color of the case would match to the lipstick’s actual color – the packaging is way more pink toned.

Kuna see on üks odavamaid brände, mida tean kui asi puudutab meiki siis on teada, et välimus on üsna lihtne, mitte midagi uhket. Sellel on lihtne matt ümbris ning mulle meeldiks kui see oleks olnud sama värvi, mis huulekas ise – hetkel on ümbris ikka palju roosakam kui huulepulk ise. 

COLOR || VÄRV
The color that I chose is 06 and it has a really cheeky name – Kiss Me If You Can. As you can see then it’s really beautiful and rich deep red color but it does look lighter on the lips. At first I wanted to say that it’s too creamy to be a matte lipstick but as you apply it and wait for a minute or two and you can see that it actually dries up and looks pretty matte, I wasn’t expecting that at all. But since it is creamy it did keeps my lips hydrated and they didn’t really chip that much. I wanted to warn that every time you touch your lips it does stain so that’s a thing to look out. Also I know that this has nothing to do with the color but omg this smell so goood, I am not even exaggerating!

See värv, mis ma valisin on 06 ja sellel on väga huvitav nimi – Kiss Me If You Can (eesti keeles – suudle mind, kui saad). Nagu ka pildilt näha on siis huulepulk ise on väga ilus ja sellel on rikkalik tumedam punane toon, aga kui seda huultele kanda siis jääb värv heledam. Alguses olin üsna kindel, et see jääb liiga kreemjaks, et olla matt huulpulk, kuid minuti või kahe möödudes oli näha, et värv oli tõesti mattiks läinud. Ning kuna see oli kreemja konsistensiga siis see ei tekitanud seda, et mu huuled oleks tunduvalt rohkem katki läinud (kuna mu huuled on tavaliselt mitte just kõige paremad ehk siis kipuvad eriti talve poole rohkem katki minema, siis polnud näha neid pisikesi nahatükke, mis paratamatult ikka tekivad :D). Hoiatuseks mainin ka ära, et kuna see jääb matt siis see ei tähenda, et värv ei kulu maha. Kulub ikka küll – iga kord kui huultele pihta minna siis jääb värviga ikka kokku. Ma tean, et sellel pole värviga mingit pistmist, aga te ei kujuta ette kui hästi see lõhnab!

LASTING || PÜSIVUS
I would say that if you look for a long-lasting lipstick then that’s not the one for you as you do have to re-apply it throughout the day at least two times for the color to stay beautiful and fresh-looking.

But overall I would still recommend it to anyone as it is really cheap (it costs 2.59 euros) and does such an amazing job even though it has minor downsides.

Ma ütleks, et kui sa otsid pikalt peal püsivat huulepulka siis kahjuks see siin pole väga sinu jaoks. Seda peab päev jooksul vähemalt kaks korda uuesti peale kandma, et värv püsiks ilusa ja värskena.

Aga selle miinustest hoolimata, ma soovitaks seda ikkagi kõigile, kuna see teeb ome hinna kohta absoluutselt suurepärast tööd (see maksis ainult 2.59 eurot).

I hope that you enjoyed this a little more in-depth review of this lipstick and please let me know if you would like to see more posts like this. I am thinking of doing a review on L’Oreal True Match foundation so let me know if you would like to read my opinions about it. 🙂

Ma loodan, et teile meeldis selline rohkem sügavuti minev arvustus selle huuleka kohta ja ma oleks ülimalt tänulik kui te annaksite ka teada, et kas te sooviksite sarnaseid postitusi veel näha. Ma olen mõelnud teha sarnane postitus L’Oreal True Match jumestuskreemi kohta niiet andke teada, kui tahaksite ka lugeda minu arvamust selle toote kohta. 🙂

The Holly Jolly Christmas Tag

Hello everyone! So since Christmas is just around the corner I thought that I would do this fun little tag to start off with my Christmas themed posts. Anyway, I have gathered up 13 questions that maybe also help you to get to know me a lot more better! 🙂

Heii! Kuna jõulud on peaaegu, et juba nurgataga siis ma tahtsin teha ühe lõbusa postituse, kus on 13 jõuluteemalist küsimust. Ning selle postitusega alustan ma ka oma jõuluteemalisi postitusi, kuna neid on üpriski palju üsna pea tulemas! 😉

1. Favorite Christmas movie?  || Lemmik jõulufilm?
12 Dates of Christmas, I watched it either last year or a year before that and I freaking love it and the storyline is so so good. || 12 Dates of Christmas, ma vaatasin seda kas eelmine või üleeelmine aasta, aga ma armastan seda filmi, see on lihtsalt nii hea ja armas lugu.

2. Have you ever had a White Christmas? || Kas sul on kunagi olnud valgeid jõule?
Almost every single year haha 😀 || Peaaegu iga aasta õnneks 😀

3. Do you start Christmas shopping on Black Friday or wait until the last minute? || Kas sa alustad oma sisseostude tegemisega musta reedel või jätad selle viimasele hetkele?
Somewhere in between, I usually do it in the middle of December || Kuskil nende kahe vahepeal, tavaliselt alustan kuskil detsembri keskpaigas.

4. If you could be in any Christmas movie what would it be? || Kui sa saaksid olla ühes jõulufilmis siis mis see oleks?
Polar Express, who wouldn’t want to go to that place, it’s like a winter wonderland. || Polaarekspress, sest kes ei tahaks minna sinna, see on nagu talve võlumaa.


5. Name all Santa’s raindeers. || Nimeta kõik jõuluvana põhjapõdrad.
Dancer, Rudolf, Comet, Vixon, Cupid, Blitzen, Donner, Prancer, Dasher. I admit that I had to look at least half of these up, I honestly didn’t know all the names haha || Dancer, Rudolf, Comet, Vixon, Cupid, Blitzen, Donner, Prancer, Dasher. Ma pean ausalt tunnistama, et ma pidin vähemalt pooled neist netist üles otsima, kuna ma teadnuki neid. 😀

6. When does your family put up your Christmas tree and who decorates it? || Millal sinu pere paneb kuuse üles ja kes seda kaunistab?
Usually in somewhere in the middle of December. Me and my mom, my sister and dad are not that interested in that haha 😀 || Tavaliselt kuskil ikkagi detsembri keskpaiga poole. Mina ja mu ema, mu õde ja isa pole sellest väga huvitatud 😀

7. Is your Christmas tree real or fake? || Kas sul on kuntskuusk või päris kuusk?
I used to have fake one since I was little but since 2014 we have a real one because now we have room for it.I couldn’t imagine going back to the fake tree as the real one gives me the right Christmas feeling. 🙂 || Üleskasvades oli mul peaaegu alati kunstkuusk, kuna lihtsalt polnud ruumi päris kuuse jaoks. Aga alates aastast 2014 on meil kodus ikka olnud päris kuusk, kuna minu jaoks annab see ikka õige jõulutunde. 🙂

8. Peeking at gifts or to be surprised? || Piiluda kingipakkidesse või olla üllatunud?
To be surprised. Yes I do have the urge to peek sometimes as all the presents go under the tree a few days before but I hold myself back. || Olla üllatunud. Ma ei hakka valetama, kui ütlen, et mul pole seda soovi olnud. Loomulikult on. Eriti arvestades, et meil peres lähevad kingitused juba mõni päev enne jõule kuuse alla niiet pean ennast tagasi hoidma 😀

9. Show us your ugly Christmas sweater if you have one. || Näita meile oma koledat jõulukampsunit kui sul on.
For your sadness I have to say that I have none, I only have one Christmas sweater and I absolutely love it! || Teie kurvastuseks pean ütlema, et mul ei ole ühtegi. Mul on ainult üks jõulukampsun, aga mulle meeldib see väga. 🙂

10. Does your family have a special holiday recipe you like to help make? || Kas sinu perel on mingi eriline pühade retsept, mille tegemsele sulle meeldib kaasa aidata?
I wouldn’t say that we have a special recipe, as I celebrate Christmas with my mom’s side of the family (we are really really close with them  and have always celebrated our Christmas with them) and since there are about 20 of us then each family does a little something so all the food making doesn’t fall on the one who hosts that year. 😀 || Ma ei ütleks isegi, et meil on mingi eriline retsept. Kuna me tähistame jõule mu empsi poolsete sugulastega (me oleme nendega hästi lähadesed niiet oleme alati kõik koos jõule tähistanud) ja meid on kokku umbes 20 siis teeb iga pere ise natuke midagi nii et kogu söögitegemine ei läheks ainult sellele, kelle juures parajasti jõule peame.


11. What tops your Christmas tree? || Mis kaunistus on sinu kuusepuu otsas?
Kind of like this star thingy, but not exactly like a star haha, I don’t know how to describe it 😀 || Mingi selline tähe moodi asi, aga see pole ka päris täht, ma ei oska seletada, mis asi see on haha 😀

12. Do you make New Years Resolutions? Do you stick with them? || Kas sa teed uusaastalubadusi? Kas sa ka nendest kinni pead?
I usually do, yes. But I choose the goals that I know are achievable and what I can actually do. What is the point of even doing them if you can’t keep them? || Tavalist teen küll jaa. Kuid ma valin endale lubadused, mida ma tean, et ma suudan ka saanutada. Mis mõtet on isegi teha uusaastalubadusi, kui sa ei suuda neist kinni pidada?

13. You have been granted one Christmas wish… what will it be? || Sulle on antud üks jõulusoov… mis see on?
Ohhh that’s a hard one. But I think that my grandma would still be here so she could see all the amazing things that have happened over the past 2-3 years and that she could meet my baby boy Lars (aka my puppy). || Vot see on raske küsimus. Aga ma arvan see, et mu vanaema oleks veel meiega, et ta saaks näha kõiki neid imelisi asju, mis on viimase 2-3 aasta sees juhtunud ja et ta saaks tuttavaks me kutsubeebi Larsiga. 🙂

Okay this is all I have for today and I hope that you enjoyed this little Christmas tag, I ad so much fun answering to all of the questions! I also have lot more posts coming up really really soon so don’t forget to stay tuned. 🙂

See on kõik, mis mul teile tänaseks on niiet ma tõesti loodan, et teile meeldis selline pisike jõulupostitus, kus rääkisin lähemalt ühest oma lemmikpühast. Kuna mul on ka palju uusi postitusi üsna pea tulemas siis ära unusta tšekata üle ka mu sotsiaalmeedia kontod, sest sinna tulevad alati esimesena teadaanded ja väiksed sneak peek‘id! 🙂
