Sundays

Cheers to a lazy sunday! Wish weekends were longer. Time goes by really fast and two days are never enuough to get some sleep, rest and do something awesome, like a fieldtrip or a small getaway. And this rainy windy weather is making me lazy….Who’s with me?

Also already thinking about my vacation destination next summer. We have been thinking about Malta. Has anyone been there? It seems beautiful and a really cute small island for a week getaway. Tips and advice are appreciated  🙂

Favourite spot in Tartu

If you’re ever in Tartu Estonia, Aparaaditehas (The widget Factory) is a must place to go. Situated near the center of Tartu, the factory brings together different restaurants, artists, designer studios. It has a very hipster vibe, which is not a bad thing at all, great place to have dinner after work or visit some cool designer shops. Extremely chill place to be.

Also the restaurant Aparaat has some really really good food with reasonable prices and awesome people who work there! Definetely a place to go in the summer time!

Also they host fleamarkets, foodfestivals and different concerts! An awsome place to get inspired.

 

Body

I don’t know if with age comes knowledge and wisdom, but this year has been absolutely lifechanging. Last September I decided to become more healthy and aware of what I eat, exercise more and this has changed my mindset a lot. Had some changes with my eating habits. Cut out pasta, all kinds of processed meat you can find in a supermarket and started to eat vegetables, fruits and good quality meat. Also started doing power walking/running after work. Even when I was exhausted after work, I still went out. I think I needed that the most. My everyday work is quite hard physically, but still, body and mind needs some exercise to recover and get energy! My weight dropped about 5kg and I noticed it quite randomly. I suddenly felt I had nothing to fill my bra anymore 🙂 I don’t have a scale at home so I didn’t really check my progress at that time. And oh man, it feels really good when your clothes fit better but most of all I had more energy to move around especially when working. Since Im a huge chocoholic, I still enjoy it a lot and don’t say no if I feel my body and mind needs it. To be honest, I have always thought I have eaten properly, but my weight still stood still. Had know idea that all that crap I was eating didn’t offer anything for my body. They say food is fuel, and it is 💯 true! But you can also walk on very thin ice with being healthy. It’s easy  to get too obsessed with watching your weight. Especially watching all these perfect instagram fitness girls, who seem perfect, have perfect tanned body’s without any body fat. But hey, we need to remind ourselves that nothing is as perfect as it seems and us girls are all different. Sometimes I too get a bit down with my mood when I haven’t exercised and eaten properly all week, but then comes the realization that we only live once and also need to enjoy “bad” food once in a while. Have cake and pizza, celebrate someone’s birthday or etc without any guilt. Because we have to enjoy and celebrate every day we have, be happy and do everything with love ❤️ 

 Let’s be happy in our body, even if we have a few extra kg’s, have not so perfect hair, have fair skin and so on. And most of all, let’s have cake for breakfast once in a while! 😘

 

 

Goat cheese salad is absolute heaven and easy to do at home

I think I have never worn a crop top in my life before. Even when I was a teen. Since now 😂

Fantastic salad with figs, nuts, apples, chicken.

Weekend bliss

Decided to have a small getaway this weekend, since the weather predictions were quite positive. Headed out to the seaside, Võsu to be exact. It was warm, et got even warmer day by day. But since estonian summer has been rather cold, the sea was way too cold for me to get in ☺️

Also visited lake Äntu, which has the clearest water in Estonia. It would have been awesome to stand up paddle board on the lake to have the best view.

Have a great week everyone!

Pop up cafe!

We had another pop up cafe event in our little town Elva, which is becoming really popular year after year and had really awesome time throwing it again. Had time to only take few snaps of it, cause there was a lot of people visiting us and no time to even photograph our food and venue at all, but here is a little glimpse what style our cafe was:

Our menu included pancake cakes, quiches with salads and other french style cuisines.

Next year probably not gonna take part of the pop up cafes and plan to be a customer instead and visit other awesome cafe’s, enjoy the buzz and good food!

 

 

 

 

Restoran Waksal

 

This lovely restaurant in my small town has been opened for a couple of months now, but today I finally had the time to visit it myself. I have to say, for an interior lover(read:freak), like me, this place is just lovely. Since it is in a trainstation, I love how they kept the historical atmosphere in the interior and also in little things, like doorknobs, lamps etc. Great vibes! Also the food is very very tasty and portions are in great sizes If someone wants to have multiple courses.

Had a vegetable risotto and goat cheese salad:

Villa Oleandra

Third time’s a charm. This year we planned definetely to find George Clooneys villa! It is situated in beatiful Laglio. No wonder he has a crib in here! It was quite easy to find as well. We were really excited, because every year when we have visited Lake Como, George has been here at the same time. So a little thrill for our vacation life.

So where to?

Tomorrow is the day! Finally. We are flying to Italy to have our little vacation. Already making plans where to go and what place to visit. Ofcourse Bellagio is on our list again, but also thought about visiting some other lake, like lake Garda, town Varenna, maybe even Venice. Also can’t wait to eat gelato, have a good cappuccino and this enjoy the beautiful mountains with amazing italian people!

Gorgeous and romantic Bellagio
