Adventures on bike

Eile käisime Britiga rongide ja rataste abiga Tallinnas. Minul oli seljas Briti stiliseeritud outfit, temal minu oma.
Hommikul sõitsime rongiga Balti jaama. Rongid pole just väga rattasõbralikud ning meil oli raskusi sinna pääsemisega, aga saime hakkama, Britt on tugev.
Balti jaamast sõitsime Paavli kaltsukasse, kuhu jõudsime just avamise ajaks. Ühtlasi ka uue kauba saabumise ajaks! Paavlist sõitsime edasi Saksa Saia, kuna olime tõsiselt näljas. Lasin kaasa pakkida 6 kuklit, mille paberkott purunes, kuna munakiviteel mäest üle sõitmine pole just kõige sujuvam. Mitte isegi lähedale. Lisaks sellele otsustas mul kett maha tulla rattal ja käis õudne krigin jms. Noh, turistid olid väga vaimustuses ja nüüd oleme umbes 80 Hispaania pensionäri fotoalbumites.
Käisime ka vaatamas uut monumenti, mis minu meelest on väga ilus, ning lõpetuseks võtsime ühed jäätisekokteilid ja sõitsime koju tagasi.
Tegime ka väike peatuse Viru keskuses. Väiksest peatusest sai natuke pikem peatus ja noh... rattaretkelt lahkusin ma lõpuks hästi kena kaelakee, koti, ülilaheda sebramustrilise keebi, 2 pluusi, mega-mini-rahakoti, vintage kleidi, jaki ja...matrioshka kleepsudega!

Yesterday, we went to Tallinn with a help from trains and bicycles. I was wearing an outfit styled by Britt, she was wearing one put together by me.
In the morning we hopped on a train and drove to Balti train station. The train was not very bike-friendly, but we could handle it. Britt is pretty strong you know...
From the train station we jumped on our bikes and started riding to the Paavli second-hand, where we arrived when it was opening time and also the arrival of new clothes!
After managing to buy tons of clothes from Paavli, we started pedaling to the Saksa Sai bakery since we were really hungry. I bought 6 buns which were in a paper bag, which broke on the way, because cobblestone pavement is not very bike friendly. Not even close. AND my bicycle chain decided to make it even harder. Well, tourists were very enraptured and now we're on the photo albums of 80 Spanish pensioners.
We also visited the new monument, which in my opinion is lovely. On our way back home we got ourselves milkshakes and stopped by at Viru Keskus. What was planned to be a small stop turned into a longer one and well... I left our bicycle trip with a lovely necklace, bag, supercool zebra patterned cape, 2 blouses, mega-mini-wallet, vintage dress, jacket and...matryoscha stickers.

It's giveaway time again!

I'm spoiling you, but oh well, you deserve it, because I guess we can call it the 350 followers giveaway!
For this giveaway we have this gorgeous BB DAKOTA Dusty Pink Blake Dress, worth $65.00, from Chickdowntown.
BB Dakota entered the fashion scene in 2005. Glorida Brandes, founder of BB Dakota adds her French flair to these clothes. Her goal is to offer BB Dakota girls big fashion at small prices. And she's done a great job, don't you think?

Casually feminine, the short, sweet frock boasts splashes of bright abstract florals set against a field of dusty pink, with the bare tank style bodice whirled with a sweet skirt of unpressed pleating. The matching covered belt finishes the sweet effect.

To enter this giveaway, just leave your name and e-mail to my comments section once again. And just like last time, if you spread the word about this giveaway, leave me you blog's link and it'll give you an extra entry. I'll announce the winner at the end of this week (July 05).

I have to say that Chickdowntown has the most amazing section of designer dresses and accessories. I love the pieces from Elizabeth and James, Nanette Lepore, Vera Wang, Marc Jacobs, Free People and also BB Dakota clothes.

Thank you so much Chickdowntown and also thank you everyone who took part in my last giveaway, don't forget to leave a comment on this one as well!

Yesterday was amazing. Everything went as planned or even better.
In the morning I went to the hairstylist an I was the only person in there because the salon was not opened yet. I got the exact same hairdo as I was picturing it in my head. After the hairdresser's I stopped by at Britt's house and she gave me pefect pair of earrings that matched my dress.
The weather started to get better and we drove to school, where it was time to get ready for our 'starmoment'. We steppen into the hall and our "super" music teacher was playing some sort of melody which was unreconizeable because it sounded like she was making it up on the run. I sat in the first row so I couldn't comment anything. I'll do it now then.
Well, they guy who spoke for parents sounded like he was a bit tipsy. And teacher speaking for teachers had made the longest speech ever. After the first 20 I got distraced and couldn't pay attention to him anymore. About dresses, I loved many of them. I even liked one skirt-shirt combo, which I usually don't. That's about it, no more comments. The music was the same as each year, our song was a disaster as we planned it would be. Usual.
After we got our last reports we went out of the hall and I got tons of flowers and presents and we even made those mandatory shots by the tree and in front of the schoolhouse.

Eilne päev oli suurepärane. Kõik läks nii nagu plaanitud või paremini.
Hommikul läksin ma juuksurisse, kus olin ainuke klient, kuna salong polnud veel avatud. Sain endale täpselt sellise soengu, nagu oma peas seda ette olin kujutanud. Peale juuksurit käisin Britu juurest läbi ning tõin ära kõrvarõngad, mis matchisid täpselt mu kleidiga.
Ilm pööras ilusaks ning sõitsime kooli juurde, kus pidime juba oma staaritunniks valmistuma. Astusime saali meie megasuper muusikaõpetaja tausta saatel. Istusin esimeses reas ning selle tõttu puudus mul kahjuks võimalus kõike kommenteerida. Teen seda siis nüüd. Lapsevanemate esindaja tundus natuke vindine olevat. Ei tea, kas sellel tõepõhi all oli, aga siiski. Peale õpetajate esindaja kõne esimest 20 minutit hajus mu tähelepanu ning suutsin näha ainult väikest poissi kes terve kõne aeg tal nina all seisis ja välguga pilte tegi. Mulle meeldisid väga paljud kleidi ja isegi üks seelik-pluus komplekt, kuigi mulle sellised asjad tavaliselt ei meeldi. Tegelikult rohkem polegi midagi selle kohapealt kommenteerida. Muusikaline vahepeala oli samasugune nagu alati, meie laulu pekki minemist oli ka oodata. Usual. Nägin ka oma esimese klassi juhatajat, kes on väga armas.
Igatahes, pärast sain kohutavalt palju lilli ja kinke ja tegime ära ka kohustuslikud pildid puu ning kooli sildi juures. Isegi Fab 5'i 5 minutliline taasühinemine toimus.
