    MY CURRENT SKINCARE FAVORITES

    I have recently changed my skincare routine and added some new products to it and I have been loving it, so I thought I’d share. I have tried The Ordinary products a few months ago and I have been absolutely in love with them! All the good reviews I have been reading haven’t been wrong. I can say from my own experience that their product are amazing. Firstly, all The Ordinary products don’t have any parabens, sulfates, mineral oils and other harmful chemicals. For someone with hypersensitive skin as me, who goes all red and in a rash after using something that the skin doesn’t like, this is extremely important.…

    TURNING 29, GETTING ENGAGED AND GENERAL LIFE UPDATE

    It has been almost a year since my last post… When I think about it, I do feel really sad. But what I have also realized during this time is how much I missed it. How much I missed writing. So I am back and hopefully here to stay 🙂 I also wanted to share some updates, what has been happening and also some very exciting news, as you can probably tell from my heading! But let’s rewind back and go to Madrid (my last post) and what has happened since. August In August we went to South of Italy and spent a week there, visited beautiful Amalfi coast and…

    MADRID TRAVEL GUIDE

    Madrid is enjoyed most from the ground, exploring your way through its narrow streets that always lead to some intriguing park, market, tapas bar or street performer. Each night we’d leave our hotel to begin our new adventure in Madrid and 9 out of 10 times we’d walk through Plaza Mayor. ~Emilio Estevez I have just come back last week from Madrid, where I have gone to join Mauro for a long weekend as he was there for work. So I thought it would be a great opportunity to visit, since I have not been to Madrid before. I absolutely loved Madrid – with it’s massive white buildings, green parks…

    CAMBRIDGE AND STRIPES

      Ralph Lauren dress – similar here and here/Marc By Marc Jacobs trainers/Gucci sunglasses/Calvin Klein tote/Senzatempocollecione earrings   Hi guys! London has been treating us very generously with the weather! It has honestly been amazing for the last couple of weeks – the temperature is in the high twenties and all I want to do is to spend as much time outside as I can! So to get out of the city for the day we chose Cambridge as our destination – it’s just about an hour away from London, which was perfect as neither Mauro nor myself were up for a long train trip. We have spent a lovely day…

    MY ITALIAN OBSESSION

    MY ITALIAN OBSESSION

    Italy is a dream that keeps returning for the rest of your life. ~Anna Akhmatova   My Italian obsession – quite a weird name for the category on the blog, I know, I know. So I wanted to write a little intro and just explain how it came about and what place in my life it has. So, as name indicates – my italian obsession – started, don’t even remember how long ago. I was still a little girl and  loved watching documentaries about Italy or any movies filmed in Italy. They just fascinated me. My mum is a big lover of italian music that was very famous in UUSR…

    HOW TO FIND YOUR SIGNATURE STYLE

    The major payoff to cultivating your signature style is the confidence you feel because your look says it all: “This is who I am”. ~Rachel Zoe While looking fashionable is great as well as wearing the latest trends can feel really amazing, nothing can compare to having a wardrobe suited for you and ALWAYS having something to wear that is appropriate for any occasion. A wardrobe where every item fits you perfectly, suits your figure, highlights the best and hides the not so best parts. To be able to have such a wardrobe though, you really need to know yourself, your body and what suits you – you need to…

    3 THINGS NO ONE HAS EVER TOLD YOU ABOUT MOVING ABROAD

    It’s been almost 10 years now since a plane taking me from small Tallinn to London, city known as a fog Albion, landed in Stansted Airport. Almost 10 years ago I decided I was moving abroad. And almost 10 years later I am still here. For the last 10 years London has truly become my home. I am in a happy relationship, working in a job I love, have my close friends here. But I have to be honest, it wasn’t always easy. Actually, it was hard – especially for the first couple of years after moving abroad. There are at least 3 tings I can think of that no…

    RUSTIC FRENCH APPLE TART RECIPE

    On the weekends I love to treat myself and my other half to something scrumptious and it makes me incredibly happy when I have some time to potter around in the kitchen and try out some new recipes. I have been wanting to make a traditional French  apple tart for a while, but the recipes I have come across all seemed to be either too complicated or take too much time.I came across this apple tart recipe on The Simply Luxurious Life by Shannon Ables and it seemed really easy, so I thought I’ll give it a go. And I was not disappointed! It was so simple to make and the crust…

    5 DAILY HABITS TO BECOME SUCCESSFUL

    As Aristotle said that 95 % of the result is due to the habits you practice every day. As Brian Tracy noted ‘good daily habits are hard to form but easy to live with. Bad habits are easy to form but hard to leave with’. All habits are learned, the good ones and the bad ones. They can also be unlearned – you replace your bad habits gradually with the good ones, but that can only be done by practice and repetition. The first thing you do, when you get up in the morning – is habit. Is it a cup of coffee or glass of juice? Or maybe practice…

    8 MORNING HABITS OF HAPPY AND SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE

    For most of us morning is usually quite chaotic – first, the alarm has to ring quite a few times before we can get out of bed, or we just simply keep on snoozing – I am guilty sometimes. And the rest of the morning usually ends up being rushed – we are running around the house trying to get ourselves together. No wonder that we are getting bruises all over trying to run from one side of the flat to another. And you end up forgetting your lunch at home. This is all because we don’t have enough time in the morning. It’s no surprise that most of us…
