Birthday countdown

My birthday's in few days and I haven't even thought about what to do on the day. I don't even know if I want to throw a big party at all. When I was little it was the most important thing to have a huge barbeque party with ladybug cake and birthday-quiz and drawing competition and the Miss Birthday competition and that everybody brought tons of present (desirably Barbie clothes!) but now I just want to have some alone time in a spa or some other peaceful place.

Mu sünnipäevani on ainult mõned päevad aega ja ma pole üldse mõelnud, mida selleks puhuks korraldada. Üldsegi ma ei tea, kas ma üldse tahan midagi suurt. Kui ma olin väike, siis oli üli tähtis, et oleks suur grill-pidu ja lepatriinu tort ja viktoriin ja joonistusvõistlus ja missivalimine ja et kõik tooksid palju kinke (soovitatavalt Barbie riided!) aga nüüd ma tahaks lihtsalt natuke alone time'i spa's või kuskil mujal rahulikus kohas.

Tea time

I'm not a big fan of T-shirts. I think I actually only own like 3 or 4 T-shirts. But a shirt, I'd be proud to own would be Meryl Smith's "Tea Shirt". It's brilliant!
Meryl Serena Smith is a NY artist, whose most-known pieces include "
Excessory Baggage" and "Yarn Deer Headpiece" which was also a part of Benjamin Cho's fall collection. Meryl Smith keeps a blog, which you can read (and look) HERE.

Ma pole eriti T-särkide fänn. Mul ongi vist ainult paar-kolm T-särki üldse. Aga särk, mille omanik ma oleks uhkusega oleks on Meryl Smithi "Tee-särk". Lihtsalt geniaalne. Meryl Serena Smith on NY kunstnik, kelle tuntumate tööde juurde kuulub peale "Tee-särgi" ka "Excessory Baggage" ehk koera kujutav kott ning "Yarn Deer Headpiece" mis oli osa Benjamin Cho sügiskollektsioonist ning mis kujutas...hirve, mis nagu ülipikkade...põimuvate nööridega...ühesõnaga vaadake ise. Meryl Smith kirjutab ka blogi, mida saate lugeda (ja vaadata) SIIT.

Florals and turquoise at the beach

Sequin Magazine on Facebook
Me and Britt have been planning on having a shoot at the beach for a long time now. My only wish was that it took place during the "morning light" which meant that today, I woke up at 5am.

I packed my bags and rode to Britt's and then to the "set" with her.

I looked like a snail, but we made it to the beach. We'd just unpacked, when a fisherman decided to start firshing right at where we were staying. Luckly, swimming squirrel made him leave.

Water was warm and we wanted to go swimming, but we were there on a good cause so it didn't get that far.

Oleme Britiga juba pikka aega plaaninud randa pildistama minna. Minu ainus soov oli, et saaksime seda teha "hommikuvalguses" mis tähendas seda, et täna ärkasin ma üles kümme enne viite. Pakkisin asjad ja sõitsin Briti juurde, kust me koos "võttepaika" sõitsime.
Ma nägin välja nagu tigu, aga kohale me jõudsime. Olime just asjad lahti pakkinud, kui üks kalur otsustas täpselt meie peatumiskohas kalastama hakata. Õnneks sundis ujuv orav ta siiski lahkuma.
Vesi oli nii soe, et oleks tahtnud ujuma minna, aga me olime kohal ülla eesmärgi nimel, niiet sinna-maale asi ei jõudnud.

And we'll get a Chinese and watch TV

I've been wanting to visit the Keila Joa waterfalls for a long time now, because the last time I visited it was like 2 years ago. It's pretty close to where I live so I took no excuses and we h a d to go there today. We had a nice walk in the park, we watched the waterfalls and an old manor there and we went to the bridge, which is covered with padlocks attached to it. There was so many of them, that some people actually had to attach their locks to random poles close to the bridge. I guess the tradition of attaching the locks on a wedding day is more of a Russians' tradition, because all the locks had russian names engraved on them. And the park was filled with Russians so for a second it felt like we weren't in Estonia anymore.

Ma olen juba väga pikka aega Keila Juga vaatama minna kuna viimane kord käisin kuskil kaks aastat tagasi. See on siin üsna lähedal, niiet võtsime selle mineku siis täna ette. Nii mõnus oli seal pargis jalutada. Vaatasime koskesid ja seda vana mõisat ja käisime üle selle silla, mille külge hästi palju tabalukke kinnitatud on. Neid oli seal ikka tõsiselt palju- vabu kohti enam polnud, niiet inimesed on hakanud ka juba suvaliste postide juurde silla lähedal lukke kinnitama. See on vist üldiselt venelaste komme, sest kõik olid vene nimed, mis lukkudele graveeritud. Ja pargis olid ka ainult venelased, niiet hetkeks tekkis tunne, et polegi Eestis.

Back together

Today, I saw Britt again after a long seperation. We went to the movies to see the film "Easy Virtue", which was one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. Actors were good and the place it was filmed looked stunning and the storyline was wonderful- a bit disturbing (musical scenes, killing dogs by sitting on them and so on), but still wonderful. I guess the fact that we sat behind a (gay)couple who laughed so funny helped as well. We both loved the ending of the movie- "I'd do the same" said Britt and "Way to go, girl" said I in my head. You have to see the movie to understand. You won't regret it!

After the movie we went to the Bonaparte bistro, where neither of us had been. It was like t h e perfect place for me- they had macaroons and chai latte and the waiters were nice and friendly. So we ordered. A lot. Buns and cakes and macaroons and handmade icea-creams and spicy chai latte...

After overeating we went shopping. I got a lovely black skirt and was planning on buying a bag as well, but when paying for it I found out it was twice as much as I'd thought (mystic!) and I didn't buy it in the end (I can swear I saw a lower price on the tag, but oh well...)

To end our marvellous day we went to see the Soviet Technology Exhibition, but we didn't bother to walk to the other side of the building so we just looked at the display behind the gates. How thrilling!

Täna oli meil Britiga taaskohtumislõuna ning kinoskäik. Käisime vaatamas filmi "Kerglased kombed" mis on üks parimaid filme, mida ma viimasel ajal näinud olen. Näitlejad olid head ja toimumispaik oli ilus ja sisu oli mõnus- veidi häirivate kohtadega (muusikalised stseenid, koerte surnuks istumised ja muu taoline), kuid siiski mõnus. Kindlasti aitas filmielamusele kaasa ka meie ees istuv (gei)paarike, kes väga valjult ning ühtlasi ka väga naljakalt naeris ja filmi suurepärane lõpp- "Ma teeksin täpselt samamoodi" nagu ütles Britt ning "Way to go, girl" nagu ütlesin mina oma mõtetes.
Peale filmi läksime Bonaparte bistroosse, kus me kumbki polnud varem käinud. Tegu oli nagu väga-väga perfektse kohaga minu jaoks- neil oli makaroone ja chai lattet (lausa kahte sorti) (!) ning teenindajad olid toredad ja sõbralikud. Ehk siis sõimegi saiakesi ja kooke ja makaroone ja käsitsivalmistatud jäätiseid ja jõime spicy chai lattet (jah, me polnud kolm nädalat üksteist näinud ning pidime tellima endale kõike, et jutu ajal laud tühjaks ei saaks...)
Peale einestamist käisime natuke poodlemas (see lause sisaldas kahte mu kõige vihatumat sõna, aga see selleks). Leidsin endale ühe musta seeliku ning plaanisin osta ka ühte kotti, aga kassast läbi lüües sain teada, et hind oli võluväel kahekordistunud ning kott jäigi ostmata (ma võin vanduda, et ma nägin sildil odavamat hinda!)
Päeva lõpetuseks käisime vaatamas ka Nõukogude Tehnika Näitust (mis polnud ainult vaatamiseks. Kus võis ka julgelt tehnikat katsuda ja masinatesse sisse ronida. Kui kutsuv!) , mida nägime värava tagant sest me ei viitsinud maja ette jalutada...

Here we go again...and again

Today we went pick blueberries. Well... we had an idea of going to the beach actually. We drove about half an hour, got lost, drove another hour and ended up somewhere. It was close to sea, so I guess it w a s a beach..? So we just layed out our sheets and sat there with stormwinds for about 20 minutes and took off. On our way home we saw many blueberries and stopped the car. Besides blueberries there were many wild strawberries as well, which we enjoyed picking.
Then we started the car again and drove to the manor Padise to visit the Padise stronghold. The moment we stepped into our car again, it started to rain cats and dogs so there were no more stops on our roadtrip.

Täna käisime mustikal. Ehk siis plaan oli minna randa. Sõitsime kuskil pool tundi, eksisime ära, sõitsime veel tunnikese ning jõudsime kuhugile. Seal oli meri, niiet järelikult oli see rand...vist. Ühesõnaga, laotasime oma linakese sinna maha, istusime tormituulte käes kuskil 20 minutit ning hakkasime koju sõitma. Tee peal nägime mustikakohta ning peatasime auto. Mustikaid oli metsas palju, maasikaid oli ka natukene.
Sõitsime edasi ning tegime peatuse ka Padise mõisa juures, et linnusesse minna. Hetkel, mis autosse tagasi istusime, hakkas sadama padukat ning rohkem peatusi meie roadtipil ei tulnud.

Perfect summerday

Yesterday was wiled away with books. I jumped on my bike, drove to my summer cottage, sat next to our empy pool and started reading. It was quite pleasant. The weather was wonderful and I was allured by raspberries, red and blackqurrants, cherries, strawberries, gooseberries. And Epp Petrone's impressions of America cheered me up as well. Summer is a wonderful time.

Eilse päeva veetsin raamatute seltsis. Võtsin oma ratta, sõitsin suvekodusse tühja besseini äärde ning hakkasin lugema. Päris mõnus oli. Ilm oli soe ja igal pool ahvatlesid mind vaarikad, punased ja mustad sõstrad, kirsid, maasikad, tikrid. Ja Epp Petrone muljed Ameerikast tegid ka tuju rõõmsaks. Suvi on ilus aeg.

Third day at Helsinki


We started our third day of the stay out with going to the flea market once again. This time the market was much bigger and also more interesting. Sadly, during the first minutes, I got my hear broken by the most amazing vintage Balenciaga skirt with green bows with size 48 marked inside... I thought, maybe I can make it smaller, but in the end I threw that though out of my head because I realized that if you remove 4/5 of the skirt, effect is not the same...

My mood got better after I'd bought 2 floral dresses, knitted sweater and a clock from Paris. I also found adorable bowler hats à la Minimarket. They had them in every pastel color you can imagine!

After the flea market we visited every store at the Design street and then headed to Temppeliaukio Church, where there was a wedding at that time.

In the evening we had a picnic at a lovely island. We barbecued corn and ate wasabi peas.

Kolmas päeva algas taaskord sellega, et seadsime sammud kirbuturu poole. Seekord oli turg tunduvalt suurem ja ka palju põnevam. Kahjuks suutis juba esimestel minutitel mu südame murda maailma ilusaim roheliste lipsukestega vintage Balenciaga seelik, mille suuruseks oli märgitud 48... Mõtlesin isegi, et äkki annaks seda kuidagi väiksemaks teha, aga lõpuks viskasin selle mõtte peast, kuna sain aru, et kui seelikust eemaldada 4/5 materjalist, et tule see efekt just väga esile...
Küll tegi mu tuju paremaks aga väga armas kell Pariisist, kaks lillelist kleiti ja kootud kampsun/kleit. Leidsin ka armsad Minimarketi stiilis kübarmütsid kõikides pastelsetes värvides, mis üldse olemas on!
Peale kirbuturgu käisime läbi enamus poode Disainitänaval ning suundusime Kaljukirikusse, kus parasjagu toimusid pulmad.
Õhtul kõndisime saare peale ja pidasime piknikku. Grillisime maisi ja sõime wasabi herneid.
