This photo has got two of my favourite things in it: a book by French author Anna Gavalda (Consolation) and a cardigan knit by my friend Signe. I found the first book of Anna Gavalda by total chance. I picked up a book at the bookstore, opened it at a random page, read it a bit… Continue reading Anna Gavalda, great books and the joys of reading. / Anna Gavaldast, lugemisest ja võrratutest raamatutest.
Another job interview, another gym session, another cup of coffee. Well, sounds like a routine to me! So far so good. Today I turned down a job that I was offered. Maybe I should grab the first one in sight, I really don’t know. But… I just wasn’t ready yet. It didn’t feel right. I don’t… Continue reading Every Monday: The Diary of the Espresso Woman. Part 8.
The city of Võru (in Estonia) offered its inhabitants to have a painting by the famous local artist Navitrolla on the walls of their apartment houses. How do you like it? Võru linn pakkus kohalikele inimestele võimalust saada oma maja seinale kaunis Navitrolla pilt. Navitrolla on ise Võrumaalt pärit ja tema pildid Eestis väga tuntud, nii et minu arvates suurepärane… Continue reading Wall of fame. / Sisuga sein.
I love colours but when it comes to wearing rainbow colours… hmmm… it just seems so childish. Too many colours and does it go with anything but black? And then the sun is shining (well, not here in Estonia this week) and then I saw the first rainbow in the blue spring sky and I realised… Continue reading Over the rainbow. / Vihmane vikerkaar.
I know that it’s really popular to eat all kinds of superfoods at the moment. It’s been a trend for a while. But the superfoods I am about to introduce you are the ones that I have been eating every spring since my childhood already. Although some people just call them weeds… Here in Estonia… Continue reading Take it from the ground. / Nagu maast leitud.
The spring is arriving drop by drop… with snowdrops. Couldn’t help but post a few photos here. How can you not notice the first flowers in the garden! Delicate yet strong enough to stand the cold and snow. And the green and white colour palette is just perfect. ************** Kevad saabub tilk tilga haaval. Lumikellukeste… Continue reading Drop by drop. / Tilk tilga haaval.
Here I go again. The professional me is going to the next job interview. I feel like I am an actor going from audition to audition trying to get the leading role in the next big movie. I wonder how long does it take to get to the point where you are willing to accept the… Continue reading Every Monday: The diary of the Espresso Woman. Part 7.
It’s Friday and I would like to serve you a piece of cake. I love cheesecake and this one is with Oreo cookies. Sweet and creamy. Even a little too much… ’cause I had too much! The pink cup and saucer with roses are a birthday present from some years ago. Enjoy! ****************** Reede puhul… Continue reading Piece of cake. / Koogitegu.
Noa Noa summer collection certainly does bring to mind the Nordic summers. Romantic, but cool. Light endless summer nights mixed with a few hot days. There’s also the exotic touch of patterns that bring to mind a tribal dance. This reminds me that Noa Noa means ‘simple and harmonious’ in Tahitian. Noa Noa’s shop could certainly… Continue reading Noa Noa summer collection presentation. / Noa Noa esitles suvekollektsiooni.
