wild and green

Another reason to love the beginning of spring is the fresh wild garlic! 
I bought a whole bunch today and made pesto to enjoy with toasted bread and cream cheese. I can say this one is pretty bitter, nothing like a regular pesto, which I could eat spoonfuls after spoonfuls.

Sunday's brunch

Grapefruit and brownsugar muffins
recipe from A Beautiful Mess blog

These ones just looked so fresh and good that I simply had to try them out

New find and traveling tips

Solid perfume is something new for me, I tried out the one from JOIK, which smells sweet like sandalwood and vanilla. 
In fact solid perfume is actually the oldest form of perfume and it has been used since Egyptian times.

Well I think I'll still stick to my regular Balenciaga's but I'm sure that the solid one can be quite useful when traveling by plane. I mean carrying liquids in your hand luggage is always such a trouble!

spring clean

Me in the latest issue of ajakiri MOOD, shot by Lilian Merila and styled by Aljona Sokolovskaja, make-up&hair Ellen Walge
It was so refreshing to have everything in very light tones for a change! And I fell in love with the pointed toe pumps..
Guess I was too inspired after the shoot and later got myself a long white dress from Monki. Fingers crossed I will stay in this all-white mood for a while then.

Vreeland's taking over Tartu

Seoses Mood-Performance-Tants üritusega näidatakse järgmisel kolmapäeval, 23. aprillil Tartu Elektriteatris dokumentaalfilmi ühest moemaailma mõjukaimast naisest, endisest Harper's Bazaari ja Vogue'i toimetajast, Diana Vreelandist. 
Endal õnnestus mul filmi "The Eye Has to Travel" juba sügisel PÖFF'il näha, aga ei ütleks ka teistkordest vaatamisest ära. See oli tõeliselt inspireeriv, innustav ja imestava panev!

spring spread

In my another column last Saturday in Arter I shared my love for tailored waistcoasts, pleated skirts, Ulla Saar new necklace line and Xenia Joost Spring-Summer 2013 collection.

pink cheese

I tried out this rather new cafe in Tallinn called Till&Kummel last weekend. 
The place itself looks very cosy and humble. Despite that, my appetizer salted whitefish with pink cottage cheese and quail eggs looked anything but simple.

WWD 3/04

If you happen to subscribe to Women's Wear Daily then you might have already seen it. I was on their cover last Wednesday and there was also a spread inside.
"Shooting location" this time was just an old decaying blue wall somewhere around the Hell's Kitchen area on the 10th avenue.

craving vitamins and sugar

Currently my favorite kind of dessert, just greek yogurt topped with crunchy chocolate granola, honey and some berries, in this case with sea-buckthorns for an extra vitamin-boost.

a throwback

fluffy thing

Spring should be already here or at least around the corner, but I couldn't help and got another warm sweater from Monki.
As I was thinking of summer, I chose this light grey tone instead of black..  guess I'm still not really ready for the colors.

111 years of extraordinary

The legendary luxury department store Bergdorf Goodman was opened in new York on 5th avenue in 1901 and this year they're celebrating their big 111th anniversay

"I want my ashes scattered at Bergdorf's"

Adapted from the quote,  here is a documentary "Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's", out on May 3rd.
The movie explores the history, inner workings and untold stories behind the store's rise from a modest ladies' tailor shop to a mirror of contemporary culture.

I'm looking forward to see the stories behind Bergdorf's magical window displays most.

Rue du Mail by Martine Sitbon

I spent a wonderful Saturday in Helsinki shooting a Rue du Mail SS13 feature for the new issue of SSAW magazine. The story will be out by the end of the month and I'm most definitely excited!

The spread was shot by Chris Vidal and styled by Tuomas Laitinen.

in blossom

Picked up these delicate blue socks from H&M in Helsinki yesterday. The only thing I found and liked from there.
Can't wait to wear them with some nice spring shoes or loafers. Currently still suffering in winter boots!

brought some spring freshness into my room!

Lighted a new Lucia organic soy candle with laurel leaf & olive from a little magical shop in East Village called Pink Olive.

Ethan took these snaps while I was getting my 90's-young-Carrie-Bradshaw-crazy-curls-makeover. 
You'll see the real pics soon!

first signs of spring
