10 reasons to visit Rotermann City

Read More»


1. Pagarini – My latest discovery! The reason why I’m so obsessed with this place – their pretzels. MAJOR DROOOL! They put melted butter inside the pretzel. I kid you not, I go there at least twice a week because I just can’t get enough. If you haven’t tried them yet, I beg you to go for it!

2. Carmen Cafe – Cute coffee shop! They have a good selection of breakfast options, pastries and I really like the interior (especially on the 1st floor). Also, during summertime they have a terrace right on the street, so you can do some people watching while enjoying your coffee & croissant!


3. Reede – Such an awesome streetwear store! You can find there all the hip & trendy brands such as Vans, Alpha Industries, Dr. Martens, Adidas, Cheap Monday – to name a few. So, if you’re in the market for a new cool bomber jacket or a pair of Dr. Martens boots, make a visit!

4. RØST – The easiest way to find that place is by following the smell of cinnamon rolls. You just cannot miss this! It’s a very trendy cafe and for a reason – they have the best cinnamon rolls in town! My favorite sweet treat ever!

5. Stradivarius, Bershka – Very popular High Street Fashion stores! I don’t know about you guys but I never leave these stores empty handed. Today I was too busy to try anything on but I will go back to Stradivarius tomorrow to try on those chinos that I spotted! They have such a variety of colours & patterns to choose from!

6. Juustukuningad – You know that meme: “It has too much cheese on it! Said noone. EVER.” I can relate to that! This place definitely has the best selection of Dutch cheeses. My favorite is Le Petit Doruvael with truffels. Also I suggest you to try out their own mustard sauce with dill & honey, yum!

7. Tallinn Design House – If local design is something that you are interested in, this is THE place to visit! They have such a nice variety of Estonian fashion, cosmetics, furnishing and other bits & pieces!

8. Flamm – Very cozy wine bar with a selection of flatbreads! I usually go there to catch up with a friend over a glass of wine. It is perfect for that! 


9. Pull – I’ve been there for dinner about 5-6 times and I have ZERO regrets! It is very busy, specially on weekends. So make sure to book a table. As it is created and owned by famous Estonian grill masters, be ready to enjoy one of the best BBQ experiences!

Rotermanni9


10. Instagram friendly – I think it is fair to say that Rotermann City is one of the most instagrammable areas in Tallinn. Being a blogger/influencer I have to fabricate new shooting spots all the time and Rotermann City is like a safety net – whenever I’m in a hurry or if I’m just out of ideas, this is the place where I end up!

WHAT I WEAR DAILY

A-TOMMY18

Hey cuties!

How have you been? I’ve been so busy, my schedule has been so hectic lately. It definitely feels that Spring has arrived. FINALLY!

Read More»

I always start my outfit posts with commenting the weather, haha. Then again it is one the biggest factors when I choose what to wear. Through Instagram I seem to go for smart casual mostly but in real life when I’m working and running daily errands my go-to outfit looks exactly like on these pictures here – jeans, tshirt or a hoodie, puffer or a bomber jacket paired with cute sneakers and sunnies. 

These awesome pieces are from Tommy Jeans. If you’ve never visited that store, I suggest you to do that ASAP! Tommy Hilfiger store has this rather classy vibe to it, you can find both casual and smart casual outfits. But Tommy Jeans is all about that 90s street vibe – high-waisted destroyed jeans, big logos, patches, sneakers with chunky soles, awesome caps etc. Love it! Keep scrolling to see more pictures!

Also, I’m So excited about the upcoming months! There’s going to be a lot of travelling which means a lot of new content! Yay! Next week we are heading to Dubai. I really-really need some sun. Last week I was using the lightest shade of foundation that I own and it’s white as snow. 

In May I’ll be going to Milan + Lake Como with my mom and my sister, whoop-whoop! Can’t wait!

June is going to be so awesome! I’m working on a little secret project that I can share with you guys next month. Also in June it is time to pack those bags again and go to Ibiza! This is the place where T and I got engaged, so it is the perfect destination to celebrate our 4-year anniversary.

One of T’s friends is celebrating his birthday in July. So we are all going to Croatia! It is going to be my first time there, so if you’ve been there (Split & Hvar), I would really appreciate all the eating + shopping + what to see- types of recommendations! Thank you in advance!

Enjoy this beautiful Spring of ours!

Review: HEMPSON Skincare

Sambulabs1

It’s been a loooong time since my last review. Meanwhile, I’ve tried so many different products but not every skincare line makes me want to write a review.

Read More»

HEMPSON Cosmetics (HERE) is a new Estonian brand creating organic skin- and hair care products using cannabidiol extracted from the blossoms and leaves of organically grown industrial hemp. The scent of these products reminds me of a strong herb tea.

Disclaimer: there is absolutely no risk of psychoactive reaction from using these products.

Also, I’m happy to say that all of these products are vegan and have never been tested on animals!


So, I’ve been using them for about 2 months now and I think it’s decent amount of time to realize how they actually work. I’m not gonna lie – some of them didn’t really work for me but then again some of them were the only products that helped my skin through those days when it was -15 outside.

To make this review more interesting – I asked my mom to try them out aswell. Because of the age difference and totally opposite skin/hair types, I think it will be more informative that way.

Me: combination skin with surface dryness. Long & quite thick hair. Age 25+

My mom: very-very dry & sensitive skin. Short & thin hair. Age 45+

Sambulabs3

HEMPSON Anti-Aging Serum (HERE) – They say that face serums are lightweight moisturizers that penetrate deeper to deliver active ingredients into your skin. To be honest, I rarely feel/see the difference when I use serums, so I don’t know if it is the most important step… I guess if you want to go that extra mile for your skin then ofcourse. This particular one has hyaluronic acid as one of the ingredients – so I believe that it has to have some good benefits that are just not visible instantly!

HEMPSON Face Cream for dry skin (HERE) – My favorite product from this brand! I didn’t have high expectations for this one but it turned out to be amazing! It has very thick and buttery consistency. When applied, it absorbs quickly to the skin and creates the smoothest canvas. I think it also works great as a moisturizing + pore filling primer. I think it’s because glycerin is one of the ingredients. My mom was also obsessed with it! Her eyes are very sensitive and there are only a few moisturizers that she can use close to her eye area. This was one of them! It didn’t make her eyes water and in general moisturized her dry skin very well! 10/10

Sambulabs4

HEMPSON Anti-Aging Eye Cream (HERE) – It’s their bestseller! Very soothing, calming and moisturizing. It felt very good under my eyes which can also be a bit sensitive to some of the eye creams. Before applying concealer under the eyes, it is so important to use eye cream first. Trust me, your concealer looks so much better on moisturized skin! This one also has hyaluronic acid as one of the ingredients!

HEMPSON Soothing Mask (HERE) – Especially it helped my skin during the cold weeks. I had dry patches, texture and overall my skin was flaky. It was impossible to apply foundation or concealer. So, I exfoliated my face, used this mask, serum, face cream, eye cream and let it all sink in for about 30 min. All this made my skin look healthy & hydrated!

Sambulabs2

HEMPSON Body Cream (HERE) – It says on the bottle that it’s nourishing and it doesn’t lie at all. Thick and hydrating consistency, very similar to the face cream. After applying, it soaks in quickly and doesn’t leave your skin greasy. Definitely worth buying!

HEMPSON Shampoo (HERE) & Conditioner (HERE) – These two just didn’t work for me at all. I tried them several times. I did like the gel-like consistency of the shampoo and the minty scent. It’s just that my colour-treated and extra dry hair needs more. However, for my mom they worked well! She said that after washing, her hair wasn’t tangled at all like it usually is. Also during these cold weeks her hair had been very static previously but this conditioner totally worked its magic!

I hope you guys found some useful information & I’ll talk to you soon!

As you can read it from the title I decided to recreate 3 celebrity inspired outfits. Usually the focus is on creating celebrity looks with much more affordable pieces. But I decided to go in another direction and challenge myself a bit: I created 3 celebrity inspired looks incorporating pieces from Estonian brand IRIS JANVIER.

The second one is inspired by the most-searched actress and future member of The British Royal Family – Meghan Markle. She has already made a name for herself as a royal style icon. As you can see she is wearing a wool camel coat which is such a classical piece and a must-have in every fashionista’s wardrobe!

Collar shirt – H&M
Jeans – Levi’s

This outfit is again stolen from Kourtney Kardashian. Leather (vinyl) pants have been such a big thing for the past year or so. I love pairing them with big chunky knits. Different textures definitely make the look stand out!

Boots – Dr.Martens
Sunglasses – H&M

Hopefully soon we can pack away our furs & boots and get ready to embrace the upcoming Spring! Even though it looks like mid-winter outside right now, I already started shopping for the next season!

Here’s my first Spring look! From head to toe – Tommy Hilfiger. I wanted to create a chic yet comfy outfit that’s very versatile. I could wear this for meetings, events, lunch dates, city strolls etc. Because of the block heel, these booties are perfect for that!

I’m obsessed with the colour scheme of this outfit – blue, white, stripes, black with a hint of gold! Perfect match!

The star of the outfit is definitely this gorgeous Tommy Hilfiger duster coat. You can wear it with pumps, sneakers, boots & sandals. It is such a good wardrobe basic!

I really hope you got some inspiration!
