What a lovely fucking day

And it truly is! I have`nt felt this content and happy with my life in a very long time. Nothing special has happened but somehow everything has changed... I have changed. I tried yoga last sunday for the first time and I loved it! I felt that it was exactly what was missing from my life, to get in touch with myself and my body. Good things are coming my way :)

I`ve always been a huge fan of the black and white combo. It`s the easiest way out when you have no idea what to wear and it always looks great! I have added a lot of colour to my wardrobe lately but also there is a lot of monochrome set`s coming your way when the weather allows it. And that coat... I loved it from the moment I laid eyes on it but my rational-self said "you don`t really need it" so the first time I walked out with empty hands. But when I returned a few weeks later and there was only one my size left... well, I took it as a sign!

My fav places for dining out

So here is a post you requested. About my favourite eating-out places in Tallinn. The first ones are more fine-dining and the second list is about my everyday lunchtime favourites. 
So here it goes:
1. My no.1! Chedi. Amazing modern-Asian kitchen!
2. Ö. I did`nt want to go there for a long time and then we decided to  go for my birthday last year and the food was delicious! I did`nt want to go there because when browsing the menu at home, it always seemed to me that there is nothing for me to eat because I can get quite picky at times. Boy was I wrong....
3. Bocca. One of my long-time favourites. Delicious pasta!
4. Kadriorg. Delicious seafood. Especially the scallops!
5. Korsaar. Wonderful interior, tasty prawns and my shark fillet was good too. Although I have heard that the things I didn`t try are actually why people go there. Like the bouillabaisse.
And my everyday favourites!
1. Spirit. My all-time favourite shrimps! And the last time I was there I tried the chantarelle -borsch and it was very good.
2. Boheem. Very good food and very friendly prices. I love the salads and crepes there!
3. Jahtklubi. My long-time favourite. I especially love it in the summers when you can sit outside by the boats and enjoy their barbecue menu.
4. Velvet. To accompany the good food you have an amazing view over Tallinn. Delicious sushi!
5. Buttefly. And of course Butterfly... Delicious food, friendly prices and even more friendly staff!

What`s in my bag

Lately my "everyday" bag is the Michael Kors my mum (I mean Santa) bought me :)
When I have my Pentax camera with me.
And when I don`t have the camera with me. I don`t carry it with me everyday. Other stuff is mainly the basics.. A pair of leather gloves and my Karen Millen wallet. Sunglasses from Me Looks Good in case the sun comes out. A pear in case I need a quick bite although that does`nt come with me every day either. Hand lotion for my dry skin. Phone, car key, concealer and Clinique lip balm. And e-shihsa for my nervous moments :)

And we are back in winter wonderland here in Estonia. I must admit it is beautiful... but let`s face it: I need spring! At least it is not freezing cold. Trying to see the positive in all of this. By the way, if you have any requests or ideas what you would like me to write about, feel free to let me know! For example I got a request to do a "What`s in my purse" post. So if you have any similar or any other ideas... let me know!

Coat: Hugo Boss

My everyday make-up

A little beauty talk about my everyday make-up routine.
Underneath it all. The Yxes eyelash serum has done miracles for my lashes! And I use eye cream too but  it`s stuck under the bathtub... bummer!
Foundation is from Giorgio Armani, I fell in love with that a few years ago and have been loyal ever since! Pricey but they last quite long and cover perfectly! Inside the Chanel case is an illuminating powder with shimmer.
For the eyes... I use only mascara (Hypnose Doll Eyes is my fav at the moment) daily, but every once in a while when I want to perk things up I use the Loreal Superliner eyeliner or The Body Shops eyeshadow.
And for the lips... Either lip gloss from Sothys (amazing on the lips) /The Balm or lipstick from M.A.C Creme d`Nude/Lancome L`Absolu Rouge.

Missing NY badly!

It`s February and I`m still alive. Highly uninspired though. And the weather does not give many options either. I think I`ve never been this fed up with winter than I am now. It maybe coming from the fact that I always had a trip or something to long for and now everything is so uncertain and nothing to wait for. Except summer. I`ll wait for you summer!
