To the wedding

I`ve wanted to go to a wedding for a very long time. The last time I had the chance was ages ago but thankfully my uncle decided to tie the knot last weekend. It was a lovely small ceremony just for the closest to the family. 
Anyhow, I haven`t had the chance to wear this dress before so I thought this was the perfect opportunity. And oh the shoes... so comfortable!

Over the sea vol1

I had the chance to spend a few days in Finlad last week for a quick getaway. Exactly what I needed! Good food, good wine, good company and an amazing countryside location by the sea. I have a ton of pictures to share so I`ll do two different posts!
Our little troublemaker but oh so cute!
Latte & rhubarb pie in a lovely cafe in Porvoo. The carrot cake was even better! Heavenly!

A fun shop in Porvoo.
Good company. My queen B! And yes, we actually did some reading too besides the wine drinking. I managed to finally finish Jack Kerouac "On the road" which I`ve been reading for way too long. I have 6 new ones waiting so I can finally start with them now.

Summer, you`ve been good!

New beginnings

Not everything is meant to be, but everything is worth a try. It`s funny how life makes it`s own necessary corrections. And all you can do is just let go and move on. 
To new beginnings!

Shopping tales

I have`nt shared any of my shopping with you lately. So this mistake will be fixed now! And oh yeah, I still love shoes!
And I just have to share this little story with that made my day or even more! I was having dinner the other night in old town and the nicest woman came up to me and said she is a follower and loves my blog. I swear I almost had tears in my eyes. That really made my day and still makes me smile when I think about it. So thank You! And if you have a chance you should do these things more often, you`ll never know how happy you can make the other person with just a few words.
Guess. They were actually a gift. Lucky I am!

So... where to start... I always try to see the positive side of even the bad stuff. But this experience was quite bad. The only positive side was that the food itself was good. Although a bit cold when arriving to the table. And the arrival took a long time aswell. I can`t imagine how long would you have to wait for your food if the restaurant was full. Because on that night there were`nt even that many people there. The service was not the worst but I have nothing good to say about it either. I asked for bread 4 times before they brought it and by that time we had already finished our starters. They have 4 main courses on the menu and on that day they had ran out of 2 of them which to me seems just absurd. All in all... unfortunately not the best experience.

Creamy smoked cheese soup with truffle mousse & parmesan crutons (7eur). I`m a big fan of smoked cheese soup and this was delicious too although a bit cold when arriving to the table.
Pan-fried scallops with asparagus, rhubarb & watermelon salad, chilli rouille (12 eur). Same words can be said about this dish as for the soup. 
Since they didn`t have the beef tenderloin they offerd us an alternative of antrekot (18eur) which I heard was quite good.
Salmon fillet with speck ham, asparagus, radish curd, potato cream, sesame vinaigrette (13eur). I`d say the best dish we had. Very delicious!

Even though the temperature is not that low, 18 celsius, the air is not the same anymore as it was a month ago. And the wind... the wind is here to tell us that autumn has arrived. Like I said in one of my posts I actually like autumn. And hopefully when the first leaves fall I will have my peace back. My happiness and calmness back. Summer has been crazy and has sucked a lot of energy out of me.

Meie Küla Eided

This time I`m gonna show just a really cool place. And you can eat there too! We sort of (because actually my friends mom is friends with the artist, Ave, who lives there) went there by accident as we were driving to the countryside and got hungry. They offer light food there and it was on our way so we decided to stop over. This place has a really cool vibe and sense of awesomness about it! And the food was delicious although they had a limited selection on that evening because the real cook was in town. Anyhow, if you have a chance, check this place out!

Skulls & Leather

A more casual look of yesterday. And of course when we wanted to take the pictures it started raining like hell. I`m loving the autumn feeling at the moment. I always have some sort of new found energy in the fall and I am more productive... for a while at least.

A little "beauty" talk... I thought I`d introduce some of my favourite perfumes to you. As you can see I am quite a perfumaniac. At this moment I have 37 bottles here, some of them are of course about to see their end and are running out. I`ll also introduce my favourites for the day and for the night.

As you can see my skull obsession even managed to invade into my perfume world.
Daytime favourites. From left to right: Creed "Spring flower", Chloe, Marc Jacobs "Daisy". As you can see "Daisy" is probably my fav. 
Nighttime favourites: Thierry Mugler "Alien", Juicy Couture "Viva La Juicy", Narciso Rodriguez "For her", Versace "Crystal Noir". I actually use Juicy Couture and Narciso Rodriguez during the daytime quite often aswell. But they are perfect for the evening too because they stay on so well. And oh well "Alien" & "Crystal Noir" are my long time favourites, can`t even count how many bottles I have had these 2 perfumes.
And the prettiest of them all... Van cleef & arpels "Feerie".

Chill to the max

I can`t put it into words how much I love this place! I would love to escape there every possible second. The peace and serenity that overwhelms me every time I`m there is indescribable! Another perfect countryside getaway. started in Tartu with the delicious cakes of Werner cafe.
The crazy catlady doing her thing!

Morning bliss. With homemade jam and grandmas pancakes... could it even get any better?

Beautiful day

This dress has been in my closet for years & for some reason this is the first time I wore it. And the lesson learned here is that never throw anything out because you haven`t worn it yet... you`ll never know when the right time will come. You just need a really big wardrobe where to keep all your stuff. I`m definitely struggling with the lack of space here. But oh well..
