Ahhh can`t wait to push my toes into the sand!

I`d rather do nothing and be happy than do something I don`t love and be miserable!

Yes! Finally I can feel spring in the air! If only that lovely ice would melt away. And also, what I feared the most, happened to me too on saturday evening. If you see me limping then you know I fell. Not fun. My knee hurts like hell. And I have a little surprise coming your way too :) Maybe even next week!

I eat out quite a lot (mainly for lunch, dinner I like to make at home) so I`ve made it my mission to try out new places. Otherwise I always go to the same places and never discover anything new. Anyhow, here was my first try and yesterday I went to 3Sibulat. It has the same owners as Moon, which is also one of my old favourites so I knew it would not be a disappointment. And true it was! The food was delicious, the place itself was lovely and the staff friendly. But make sure to book a table as it is quite busy theses days, we were lucky enough and got the last free table.
The smell is divine!
Shell-baked scallops with chilli and ginger aioli. Absolutely delicious! I have`nt been a fan of scallops for long but tried them once in Italy and oh well... the rest is history. These were heavenly and I`m definitely going back even if it is just for the scallops!
Chicken schnitzel with pearl couscous, sugar snap peas and  parsley and garlic butter. The chicken was lovely and the butter on top gave it an extra kick of deliciousness.
Estonian pike perch with Muscat pumpkin and ginger pureè, potato and pickled vegetables. It was good but for my taste it was lacking a little bit of seasoning.
We were too full to have dessert and that`s a shame because desserts are my favourite part of the meal!

Are you even interested in these kind of posts or should I keep my love for food just to myself? :)
Have a great weekend!

Hello Spring

Well hello there Spring! It may say so in the calendar but it sure as hell doesn`t feel like spring outside. Although it is quite warm in the sun... but then there is the wind. It just cuts through you like a knife. It was too cold to take pictures outside and I actually refuse to wear anything normal anyway :) I`m so sick and tired of flat boots and coats and layers and and and oh well, everything. I thought about wearing heels today but then the image of me falling all over the place... it just didn`t seem like a sight I would want to see.

 Loving the sun these days. Although I still managed to get a cold so my days are mostly spent in bed now. And well... I guess it`s no wonder if I walk around like this, because despite the sun, the wind does and excellent job at being freezing cold! Not good. Dreaming of April!

My hair care

Some of you have asked about my hair and how I take care of it. So here is a short introduction of the products I love and use. I colour it about twice a year and highlights only, so this is more or less my natural colour, plus in the summertime it gets much lighter thanks to the sun (by the way, I miss You sun!) I try not to blow-dry or straighten it often and I let it dry naturally. Plus the blow-drying always drives me nuts because it takes a loooooong time. And I try not to wash it too often, around 2-3 times a week, 2 on a normal basis and 3 when I have some modelling jobs. 

My favourites! Great price and quality ratio. Perfect for everyday use! They leave my hair silky and smooth, especially when I use the treatment too!

Lovelovelove Alterna products. They are quite pricey but they did miracles for my hair when I started going from dark brown back to my natural blonde a few years ago.

When the ends get brittle then C:EHKO (Ewald C:ehko Energy Intensive Care Balsam Fluid Plus) comes to my rescue. A couple of drops and it does wonders. About the coconut oil... well Grete did a good post about it in her blog so I will not rewrite it and there is a great video too! And I use it the same way anyway.

My fav song at the moment! It`s so positive for me that every time I listen to it I immediately start singing along. So when you see me driving around and singing.. well, just be thankful you are not in the car with me.

Whiter shade of life

A great start to March! Although I could use some warmth and sun and sea and... oh well! Maybe it will happen, maybe it wont. On another note... Can`t wait to wear this dress and not only for a photoshoot. I fell in love with it instantly!
