As I have loads of matcha green tea powder from Japan at home, I decided to use some of it for detoxing iceblocks. The idea comes from the Panatea blog. See the instructions below (and also the health-benefits of matcha).
These will be great just to make any summer drinks and even lemon water more colourful as they don't affect the taste too much.
on the right: Before I Die at Uus Õu. A street art project which started in New Orleans and in which everyone can participate. You simply have to write down what you would like to do or accomplish before you die.
I was doing a little research on 18th jewelry and found these eye miniatures aka Lover's eye brooches. These were worn secretly (inside clothes) so no one would find out about your affair.
Eye miniatures are believed to have originated when George IV felt the need to send the widow Maria Fitzherbert a token of his love. This gesture and the romance that went with it was frowned upon by the court, so a miniaturist was employed to paint only the eye and thereby preserve anonymity and decorum.
Stumbled upon this beautiful perfumed candle at Kaubamaja beauty department the other day.
I had never heard of this brand before but as I googled now, seems that it's originated in Latvia. Their candles are handmade in a family-owned authentic manor house Vilksala (Eng. Isle of Wolf) in the West of Latvia, that has revived the traditional craftsmanship of candle making.
Even though I chose a scent called "sensual peony" I couldn't resist and get some real flowers as well.
The newest addition to the household: scented matches from French perfume house Buly 1803.
It's was founded by Parisian perfumer Jean-Vincent Bully (renowned for his perfumes and scented vinegars) already in 1803 but was just recently resurrected and modernised.
The newly opened boutique that looks like an old apothecary shop which has been around since the 19th-century. Looks amazing, like a perfect place to do all your beauty shopping for oils, perfumes, soaps, creams and scented candles of course. Will put it on my Paris to-do list!
On Saturday evening a small group of people gathered at NO99 theatre to see Estonian Academy of Arts fashion design graduates' show. I loved the spontaneous feeling of the event - not so so many people, models walking in the middle of the audience, chance to look closely and touch the moodboards and I Wear* Experiment giving a little concert in the end.
On Wednesday I was asked to take part of bloggers' panel at Viru Keskus alongside with three other lovely Estonian fashion and lifestyle bloggers (Aljona, Merily and Anna Elisabeth). Those 20 minutes passed super quickly and to be honest, it was a bit too short time to go deeper in the topic of whether bloging is the growing trend in alternative media or rather a declining phenomenon. Well I hope that everyone who came didn't feel this was time wasted :)
I couldn't been happier when I heard that my favorite Estonian ice cream parlor La Muu is opening their first café in Tallinn at Viru Keskus. The café will be offering all new exciting flavors that may be a bit "too special" to actually be produced for wholesale. So it's a good idea to keep an eye on their varying menu.
They go even further and offer different soups, salads, pastries and burgers with ingredients from organic farms. At the opening event we were suggested to try out beet and goat cheese pie, beetroot pesto, farm yogurt with handmade white-chocolate sea buckthorn granola, not to mention the rhubarb crumble with La Muu ice cream which was amazing!
Be sure to try the rhubarb ice cream while it lasts, it only for the summer season!
The other options are: chocolate, coconut, mango (my absolute favorite), coffee, vanilla, banana, oven-baked apple and kama.
Loving the Gaia Repossi's latest collection for Repossi entitled White Noise. Light and delicate rings, bracelets and earrings in various colors of gold. Moreover, Gaia herself seems to be such an inspiring and lovely woman.
Repossi said that the line was informed by architecture and various artistic movements, notably the work of Alexander Calder. I always love seeing art references! You get the feeling that art history classes weren't useless after all (tough I have never thought so any way, art history was my favorite in school)
Homme on Viru keskus täidetud tasuta üritustega kõigile moesõpradele!
Alates kell 12.00 algavad juba aatriumis vestlusringid, millest eimeses ka mina koos Aljona, Anna Elisabethi ja Merilyga räägime blogimisest. Hiljem kuulevad veel head nõu kõik moedisaineriteks püüdlejad ja saab teada, mis ettevõtmine on Style Up.
Peale seda, kella ühest näeb aatriumis terve päev moefilmide sarja "Päev varem". Lühifilmides jälgitakse Alexander Wangi, Karl Lagerfeldi, Isabel Marant' jt disainerite tööpäeva vahetult enne uue kollektsiooni esitlust.
While I keep forgetting about the approaching high school graduation and trying not to think about it too much (yes, I even don't have a dress for the ceremony yet), salon24 already surprised me with a little gift.
