Girl Friday 2015


Today we are traditionally looking back at the outfit posts published in Stellarium. Girl Friday is the oldest section that has given the readers a reason to peak into the blog every Friday with a new outfit post. The beginning of year 2015 was snowy and looking back at these images, I wish we could do another series in a pile of snow. This year was the most interesting for me in terms of outfit series, because we got to shoot in so many different places.

In addition to the picturesque Estonia, Meisi and I went to Riga Fashion Week in March, where we defied the snow and sleet and did many series outside. We also had an exciting busy week in London where we did around ten photo shoots in between my makeup classes. There was also a bit more dramatic episode in London. When we were shooting with Meisi, it turned out that we should have asked for permission from the mall to do a shoot that long. That's what a lady that came from the noble mall told us - it appeared that she had been observing us for an hour already from the window. I told her we have a permission and she went back to check it. We kept shooting until she came back and told us that there was no such permission. I told her that there must be and she should check again. To be honest, we didn't have that permission. The lady gave a knowing smirk and let us finish our shoot. 

Meisi said afterwards that shooting in the streets of London was a lot more inspiring than Estonia for her. You live in Tallinn every day, but don't see the beautiful places, because you're so used to the beauty of your home town. But London people were a lot more kind, tourists were capturing our photo shoots, and that was all very exciting. Back in Tallinn, the wigs I used in two photo shoots, created excitement. Old truths - when you start getting bored with yourself, get a wig for one night! Stellarium has often been called a fashion blog, but it's rather a lifestyle web where photo series of my personal style, that doesn't necessarily have anything to do with fashion, are featured. Fashion is mood for me. I don't rush after trends. I believe every woman is truly free in her style only when she wears clothes according to her mood, not pressure what's en vogue and which trends should be followed Here are the most memorable Stellarium outfits from 2015. Which one is your favourite?




Täna ilmub traditsiooniline tagasivaade Stellariumis ilmunud outfiti-postitustele. Meie kõige pikema staažiga rubriik on "Girl Friday", mis on lugejatele andnud põhjust pea igal reedel blogist uut outfiti postitust kiigata. Aasta 2015 algus oli lumine ja vaadates tagasi nendele mõnusalt lumistele kaadritele loodan, et ka tuleval aastal saan hanges poseerida. Tänavune aasta oli minu jaoks outfiti seeriatest kõige põnevam, sest meil oli võimalik pildistada nii mitmetes paikades.

Lisaks maalilisele Eestimaale, käisime Meisiga märtsis Riia Moenädalal. Me trotsisime sealset lund ja lörtsi ning tegime tänavatel mitu pildiseeriat. Samuti oli meil meeleolukas töönädal Londonis, kus minu meigitundide vahele tegime kokku ligi kümme pildiseeriat. Londonis juhtus ka üks närvikõditav seik. Kui pildistasime Meisiga üht seeriat, ilmnes, et selles paigas peab nii pika fotoseeria tegemiseks küsima kaubamajast luba. Nii teatas viisakalt meile üks proua, kes nooblist kaubamajast väljus ja olevat meid juba tund aega pingsalt aknast jälginud. Vastasin, et meil on luba olemas ja proua lubas seda kontrollima minna. Jätkasime pildistamist, kuniks proua ilmus tagasi õue ja ütles, et mingit luba meil pole. Põhimõtteliselt oli tal õigus. Mingit luba meil polnud. Mina vastasin talle aga naeratades, et päris kindlasti peab meil luba olema, äkki ta kontrolliks asja uuesti! Kuid see proua muigas äkki ja lubas meil seeria lõpuni pildistada. 



Meisi ütles hiljem, et tema jaoks oli Londoni tänavatel pildistamine palju inspireerivam kui Eestis. Sa elad Tallinnas iga päev, kuid ei näe neid kauneid kohti, sest oled oma kodulinna iluga harjunud. Kuid Londoni inimesed olid palju lahkemad, turistid soovisid meie pildiseeria tegemist omakorda jäädvustada ja see kõik tekitas mõnusat elevust. Tagasi Tallinnas pakkusid elamusi minu parukad, mida kasutasin kokku kahes fotoseerias. Vana tõde - kui hakkad endast tüdinema, soeta üheks õhtuks parukas! 

Stellariumit on sageli nimetatud moeblogiks, kuid pigem on tegemist elustiiliveebiga, kus on esindatud ka minu isiklikku stiili pildiseeriad, millel ei pruugi moega mingit pistmist olla. Minu jaoks on moes meeleolu. Ma ei rutta trendide järele. Ma usun, et iga naine on oma stiilis tõeliselt vaba vaid siis, kui ta kannab riideid vastavalt oma meeleolule, mitte survele - mis on moes ja milliste trendide tuules tuleb tormata. Siin on Stellariumi aastal 2015 kõige meeldejäävamad outfitid. Milline on sinu lemmik?

All love, Katy Perry


When you look like the world famous artist Katy Perry, there's no doubt it brings along numerous moments to tell the grandchildren in the future. Estonian girl Kati posed for Stellarium in four photo series and they've all been inspired by the Katy Perry H&M campaign. Today you'll see the second two series and Kati will tell five stories about how she was mixed up with Katy Perry, or she's even been asked for an autograph.

Was it a seventh sense or the weather forecast, but it's as if we sender that the days will get colder here. We ditched the glamorous gowns and stylish mini skirts for these two shoots. For the second post, Kati was wrapped in a warm jumper. The one in which Katy Perry was peeking at us with her hypnotic eyes, and for fun we grabbed along the patron of Stellarium, Evelyn the bear. But what are the stories where Kati has been mixed up with Katy Perry?  



"When I was an exchange student in St.Petersburg, I went to celebrate my birthday in a luxury restaurant. When my companion and I had started with our desserts, a young man came to me and very reverently asked for an autograph in English. I smiled to him and wrote on his paper "All love, Kati". He thanked me with even more respect and left."

"When I visited my mum's relative in Estonia, they had two teenage children at the house. When they saw me they shouted "You're like Katy!" and got their phones out immediately. Half of the night passed with them taking selfies with me and them posting them on Facebook. It seemed incredible, but there were those who really believed they were posing with Katy Perry who was visiting them at heir flat in Lasnamäe. I haven't visited them after." 

"The most excitement was definitely created by then H&M campaign in Tallinn. The city was covered in posters. One day I was sitting in my office and working. All of a sudden, I heard a knock and a colleague, a lovely older woman entered. She asked how I became the model of H&M, there are pictures of me everywhere! I replied that it's Katy Perry. She asked "Who, who?". It appeared that she didn't know who Katy Perry was."





Kui sa sarnaned sellisele maailma kuulsale artistile nagu Katy Perry, pole kahtlust, et see toob kaasa terve rea eredaid seiku, mida tasub tulevikus veel lastelastelegi rääkida. Eesti tüdruk Kati poseeris Stellariumile kokku neljas pildiseerias ja need kõik olid inspireeritud Katy Perry kampaaniast H&M`ile. Täna jõuavad sinuni teised kaks pildiseeriat ja siia juurde räägib Kati viis lõbusat seika sellest, kuidas teda oma Katy Perryga seostatud, segi aetud või suisa autogrammi küsitud.

Oli see nüüd seitsemes meel või ilmateade, kuid me oleks justkui aimanud, et siin Eestis lähevad ilmad külmemaks. Nende kahe pildiseeria tegemisel unustasime glamuursed kleidid ning stiilsed miniseelikud. Meie teise postituse puhuks mässisime Kati sooja kampsunisse. Just sellesse, kus Katy Perry piilus meid oma hüpnotiseerivate silmadega ja lusti pärast võtsime pildile kaasa Stellariumi patrooni, karu Evelyni. Kuid millised on need lood, kus Katit on aetud segi Katy Perryga?



"Kui elasin vahetusõpilasena Peterburis, käisin ühes luksusrestoranis oma sünnipäeva tähistamas. Kui olime kaaslasega desserdi kallale asunud, tuli minu juurde noormees, kes küsis väga aupaklikult inglise keeles autogrammi. Naeratasin ja kirjutasin talle paberile: "All love, Kati." Ta tänas mind veelgi aupaklikumalt ja lahkus.

"Kui käisin Eestis oma ema sugulasel külas, oli neil kodus kaks puberteedi ealist last. Mind nähes hüüdsid nad: "Sa oled nagu Katy!" ja otsisid otsemaid telefonid välja. Pool õhtut möödus nii, et nad tegid endast koos minuga kümneid selfiesid ning postitasid need oma Facebooki. Tundus uskumatu, kuid jagus neid, kes arvasid, et nad poseerivad tõepoolest Katy Perryga, kes on nendele Lasnamäe korterisse külla tulnud. Rohkem pole ma seal külas käinud."

"Kindlasti tekitas kõige enam elevust H&M`i kampaania Tallinnas. Kõikjal olid plakatid üleval. Ühel päeval istusin oma kabinetis ja tegin tööd. Äkki kõlas koputus ja uksest astus sisse minu kolleeg, meeldiv vanem proua. Ta küsis: "Kuidas sa H&M`i modelliks said? Kõikjal on sinu pildid!" Vastasin, et see on Katy Perry. Ta küsis: "Kes? Kes?" Ilmnes, et ta ei teadnud, kes on Katy Perry."

Stellarium soovib selle pildiseeriaga kõigile lugejatele õdusat aasta lõppu! Kes on see järgmine kuulsus, keda sa soovid meie muutumismängus näha?


Vaata lisaks meie esimest pildiseeriat: "Sa meenutad mulle Katy Perryt!"

My reading list



Long holidays are ahead and I decided to do a little summary on books I've read this year. It's worth mentioning that I prefer traditional books, where you can turn the page with your fingers and you can put the book on a shelf, to e-books. It's a wonderful feeling. That's why e-books haven't made it to my world yet.

Regardless of how silly it seems, I like waiting for books I've ordered from the internet. The knowing, that soon-soon a long-awaited parcel will arrive, is lovely in its own way. When I can finally untangle the book from its package, I get enjoyment from it. And finally... I start waiting for the time I can read the book. As always, the time never comes. I'm always in a rush somewhere. Always up to something. I managed to read shamefully little this year, but a few books were still handled from cover to cover. These days I'm going to take a time out, heat some Nestea apple-cinnamon tea, and grab a few newer books. A friend once stood in front of the bookshelf and said "I think you have the most books on Kennedys in Estonia!" And indeed - when I feel I'm tired from the daily grind, I pick out one of the books on Kennedys and walk in the corridors of the White House in the 60s. This year I finished the book 'Dark Side of Camelot' which talks about the dark side of president JFK. The book should be read in small doses, because the author pours rumours on JFK. I always take these kinds of books with reservation, because the person whom the book is about, is long gone, and cannot shake a fist at the author from the grave. Another book about JFK that I really like is 'John Fitzgerald Kennedy Life In Pictures' that also gives a beautiful overview of the White House interior in the 60s. When constantly looking for inspiration on how do decorate your home, that book is helpful.

When the international makeup artist Lisa Eldridge announced she has finished a book on the history of makeup, I ordered it without a second guess. The book is written with devotion and when I read the chapters, I hear Lisa's voice in my ears.  has got the approval of many magazines and got maximum points. On a whim of some sort, I also bought the book 'How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits' that overtook literally all bloggers' Instagram feeds at one point. This is where bloggers' influence comes into play, because I wouldn't have bought it otherwis. I love Paris and I've been there about ten times, and I thought that could be a book I like... but no. The book itself was a real disappointment, because I was hoping for some depth that would leave a mark. The only mark was in my wallet. If you want to read real stories of Paris and France, I recommend the biography of Birgitte Bardot. It's probably one of the most honest biographies that paints a very truthful picture of the her life. So that's that. I'll leave one book a secret, because I want to write about it separately. Which books did you read this year? Would you like to read a longer overview of some of the books?



Pikad pühad on ees ja otsustasin välja tuua mõned raamatud, mida sel aastal lugesin. Pean mainima, et ma eelistan e-raamatule ikka traditsioonilist raamatut, kus saab sõrmega lehti pöörata ja mida hiljem riiulisse panna. See tunne on alati nii võrratu! Seepärast pole e-raamatud minu maailma veel jõudnud. 

Ükskõik, kui jabur see ka ei tundu, siis meeldib mulle internetist tellitud raamatut oodata. Teadmine, et kohe-kohe jõuab minuni pikisilmi oodatud pakk, on omaette nauding. Kes oskab ootamisest rõõmu tunda, see teab, millest ma kirjutan. Kui saan lõpuks oma raamatu paki seest lahti harutada, tunnen sellest tegevusest juba omaette rõõmu. Ja lõpuks... Hakkan ma ootama aega, millal saan raamatut lugeda. Nagu tavaliselt, siis seda aega ei tule ega tule. Mul on alati kuhugi kiire. Alati on midagi teoksil. Sel aastal õnnestus mul häbiväärselt vähe lugeda, kuid paarile raamatule sain siiski otsa peale teha. 

Neil päevil võtan ma aja maha, kuumutan endale tassikese Nestea õuna-kaneeli teed, mis on mind terve detsembri soojendanud ja võtan paar uuemat raamatut ette. Üks sõber seisis kunagi minu raamaturiiuli ees ja ütles: "Ma arvan, et sul on Eestis Kennedytest kõige rohkem raamatuid!" Ja tõepoolest - kui tunnen, et olen argipäevast väsinud, võtan välja mõne Kennedytest kõneleva teose ja longin tänu raamatule ringi 60ndate aastate Valge Maja koridorides. Sel aastal lõpetasin Seymour Hershi raamatu "Dark Side of Camelot", mis räägib legendaarse Ameerika presidendi John F. Kennedy pahupoolest. Seda raamatut tuleb lugeda väikestes doosides, sest autor on leidnud üles kõige hullemad JFK`d puudutavad kuulujutud. Ma suhtun sellistesse teostesse alati reservatsiooniga, sest inimene, kellest raamat räägib, on juba ammu surnud ja tal puudub võimalus hauast autori poole rusikat viibutada. Teine raamat, mis mulle JFK`st pööraselt meeldib on "John Fitzgerald Kennedy Life In Pictures", mis annab muu hulgas kauni ülevaate 60ndate Valge Maja sisutusest. Otsides pidevalt inspiratsiooni, kuidas oma kodu sisustada, on see raamat abiks.  

Kui rahvusvaheline meigikunstnik Lisa Eldridge andis teada, et ta on saanud valmis raamatuga, mis kõneleb meigikunsti ajaloost, tellisin selle pikemalt mõtlemata. "Face Paint" on kirjutatud pühendumusega ja kui loen tema peatükke, kuulen kõrvus Lisa häält. Raamat on võitnud paljude ajakirjade poolehoiu ja kogunud kriitikute maksimumpunktid. "Face Paint" jääb minu öökapile kauaks, sest seda pole võimalik ühe hingetõmbega läbi lugeda. Emotsiooni ajendil ostsin ka raamatu "How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits", mis vallutas absoluutselt kõikide blogijate postitused ja Instagrami kaadrid. Siin tuleb tõesti mängu välismaiste blogijate mõju, sest ma poleks seda muidu ostnud. Ma armastan Pariisi ja olen seal oma kümmekond korda käinud ja olin kindel, et see on raamat, mis mulle meeldib... Kuid ei. Raamat ise oli täielik pettumus. Ma lootsin sellest mingit sügavust, mis jätaks minusse jälje. Kuid ainus jälg jäi minu rahakotile. Ma pigem pettusin endas, et läksin õnge. Kui soovida tõelisi lugusid Pariisist ja Prantsusmaast, siis soovitan Brigitte Bardot` elulugu. See on ilmselt üks ausamaid elulugusid, mis maalib näitlejatari elust väga realistliku pildi. Kindlasti on tegemist väga skandaalse raamatuga, mis sai omal ajal kõvasti kõlapinda. Bardot räägib nii meeleolukalt, kuidas ta ikka ja jälle oma ekraanipartneritesse armus, oma poja kohe pärast sündi hülgas ja kuidas ta nuttis, kui tal ei lubatud endale üht pardipoega jätta. Sellised lood sel korral. Paar raamatut jätan veel saladuseks, sest nendest tahan eraldi kirjutada. Milliseid raamatuid sina sel aastal lugesid? Jaga kindlasti soovitusi, sest jagatud raamat on jagatud raamat! Ja ära unusta, et osa raamatu lugemise mõnust saab alguse soojast tassikesest teest!

Warm Winds of December


The biggest enemy of photo sessions is cold wind. I'm not out off by minus degrees or snowfall when at a shoot, but cold wind is not my cup of tea. This time there's no reason to complain - we have a warm December here in Estonia and on one of the days like that with gentle wind we caught my bold lilac Hunters, the Pohjanheimo coat with a playful lining, and the elegant backbag Jo Bag by Stuudio Nahk in photos. When you let me loose in a big mall, then the first place where you can find me (read: where I run) is of course bags.

The more time passes, the more I love bags by Estonian designers. When travelling, our designers' bags always catch attention. I'm always asked where one or another bag is from. My Jo Bag is again one of those that goes well with my lifestyle. I can wear it comfortably on my back, jump on my scooter, or easily cruise through the city of a bike. I have a very special pull towards furry bags. Besides - they're easy to care for - the pony leather is water and dirt repellent. For someone as who wants comfort as much as me, this bag is perfect. Jo Bag is made of pony leather and it's designed so that it foes with every look. As you can see, the Jo Bag and the glamorous Pohjanheimo coat get along really well. I think they even formed an attraction between them. When you mix things that don't necessarily seem to go together at first sight, you always get the best result. There are only a few days left til Christmas! If you can manage that at all, take a time out and look back at the year. I can bet you did well! Have a beautiful start for the week!

Rucksack: Stuudio Nahk Jo Bag (here)

Fotosessioonide suurim vaenelane on külm tuul. Poseerides ei pelga ma miinuskraade ega lumesadu, kuid külm tuul pole minu tass teed. Sel korral pole aga virisemiseks põhjust - meil siin Eestis on soe detsember ja ühel sellisel leebe tuulega varustatud päeval püüdsime pildile minu edevad helelillad Hunterid, kelmika voodriga Pohjanheimo mantli ja Stuudio Nahk poolt loodud väärika seljakoti, mis kannab nime Jo Bag.  

Kui mind kuhugi suurde kaubamajja lahti lasta, siis esimene osakond, kus mind leida võib (loe: kuhu ma torman), on loomulikult käekotid! Mida aeg edasi, seda rohkem armastan ma Eesti disainerite loodud kotte. Välismaal reisides tõmbavad meie disainerite käekotid alati tähelepanu. Alailma küsitakse, kust see või teine kott on pärit? Minu Jo Bag on taas selline, mis sobib minu elustiiliga. Ma saan ta mugavalt selga panna ja tõukerattale hüpata või mugavalt jalgrattal läbi linna kruisida.Mul on mingi eriline tõmme karvaste kottide vastu. Pealegi on neid lihtne hooldada - poni nahk on mustust ja vett hülgav materjal. Minusugusele mugavale inimesele sobib ideaalselt.  Jo Bag on poni nahaga seljakott ja disainitud nii, et see sobib iga lookiga. Nagu näha saavad Jo Bag ja Pohjanheimo glamuurne mantel omavahel hästi läbi. Minu meelest tekkis neil omavahel lausa mingi tõmme. Kui miksida kokku asju, mis esmapilgul justkui ei sobi, saab alati parima tulemuse. Jõuludeni on jäänud vaid loetud päevad! Kui vähegi saad, võta aeg maha ja vaata korraks aastale tagasi. Võin kihla vedada, et sa olid sel aastal tubli! Ilusat algavat nädalat!

Sea of Shoes: Keep Calm and Love Heels

December means one party after another. Christmas parties first, and then comes the New Year. Have you already written your letter to Santa? If not, I recommend choosing a noble pair of shoes and elegantly walking into the new year with them.  For me, the shoe always has to have a trick in it. This time I picked out heels with tricks for you - the ones you'll remember. 

Who would want to wear classic shoes every day when the world is full of wonderful shoes that work as interior design elements and catch everyone's attention? Here's the last Sea of Shoes post from Stellarium this year. If you haven't got round to writing your letter to Santa yet, ask for a new pair of shoes. The new year is speeding towards us and I'm wondering how many of you read the Sea of Shoes posts? Do you think this section should carry on into the next year?




Detsember tähendab seda, et üks pidu ajab teist taga. Kõigepealt loomulikult jõulupeod ja siis suundume kohe suure hooga uude aastasse. Kuid kas sinul on jõuluvanale kiri valmis kribatud? Kui ei, siis mina soovitan valida välja üks paar (miks mitte kaks?) noobleid kingi ja nendega veetlevalt uude aastasse kõndida. Veel parem - ikka tantsida!

Minu jaoks peab king olema alati väikese trikiga. Sel korral valisin sinu jaoks välja erilised kontsad - sellised, mis kõnetavad ja jäävad meelde. Kes see ikka jõuab iga päev kanda klassikalisi kingi, kui maailm on tulvil võrratuid jalanõusid, mis garderoobis mõjuvad omaette sisustuselemendina ja jalas püüavad kõigi pilke? Siin on Stellariumi tänavuse aasta viimane postitus "Sea of Shoes". Aasta lõpp tähendab seda, et vaatame üle rubriigid, mida võtta uude aastasse kaasa, mida mitte. Kui sina armastad lugusid ilusatest kingadest ja oled rubriigi "Sea Of Shoes" fänn, anna kindlasti kommentaariumis teada. Sinu arvamus on meile tähtis!

Girl Friday: Candy Glam


Today's Girl Friday post is inspired by the makeup products of the English makeup artist and super popular YouTube heroine Tanya Burr. I discovered Tanya about four years ago and I follow her since then. Her mild voice and lovely chatter brings the sun out on rainy days. I was very excited when Tanya released her first lip glosses, and I still have my certain favourites in the makeup case. This year saw the addition of eyeshadow, blush-highlighter-bronzer sets and new lip glosses.  

As appropriate for Christmas, a lot of limited edition sets went on sale. The speed at which Tanya's products are bought from shops in England as well as online, is crazy! Limited editions are all the more sweet because there are less of them, and not everyone can get them. I treated myself with Tanya's palette "Candy Glam" with nine eyeshadows, lip gloss "Daydream", blush, and bronzer. Tanya's eye shadows have a good pigment, there are original shades in one palette that I normally wouldn't even know to look at. 



Outfit details:

Shoes: Victoria`s Secret
Bag: Closet Walkin
Dress & fur: H&M
Gloves: Tallinna Karusnaha Meistrid

This time's eye makeup features the darker shades of Candy Glam palette. The queen of the eye makeup is Plumberry - juicy plum shade that I haven't used before. I blended the eye with Creme Brulee shade and the lighter tones are courtesy of Ballet Slippers. Underneath the eye shadow, I used Urban Decay's primer. If you're planning on buying something from Tanya Burr's selection of eye shadows, I recommend using primer under your eye makeup or foundation - it makes the shades bright and they'll stay on until the morning. Tanya's palette "Rosy Flush Cheek" is my absolute favourite. I wish I had a little box spare! They're slightly-slightly creamy, are absolutely flawless on the face, and my pink blush Pretty Peony makes your face glow. I'm extremely happy that Tanya's products are so high quality that I feel like I should hoard them. This is the story for Friday. Oh yes, how do you like the wig that's inspired by the Candy Glam palette? You need to brighten up the autumn somehow - and why not with a pink wig?


Tänane Girl Friday postitus on inspireeritud Briti meigikunstniku ja ülipopulaarse YouYube`i kangelanna Tanya Burri meigitoodetest. Mina leidsin Tanya enda jaoks pea neli aastat tagasi ja jälgin vahelduva eduga tema tegemisi iga nädal. Tema helge pilk, magus hääl ja mõnus jutuvada toob vihmase ilmaga päikese välja. Ja nagu alati, kui keegi mulle meeldib, siis pean talle kogu südamest pöialt. Seega olin väga elevil, kui Tanyal tuli välja esimene huuleläigete kollektsioon, kust mul on tänini meigikohvris omad kindlad lemmikud. Sel aastal lisandusid lauvärvid, põsepuna-highlighter-bronzer komplektid ja uued huuleläiked.

Ja nagu jõulude puhul kohane, tuli müüki igasuguseid vahvaid  limiteeritud koguses komplekte. See oli müstika, millise kiirusega ostetid nii Inglismaa poodidest kui ka netiavarustest Tanya tooted ära! Limiteeritud koguses asjad on seda magusamad, et neid on vähe ja igaüks jaole ei jõua. Mina premeerisin end Tanya paletiga "Candy Glam", kus on üheksa lauvärvi, huuleläige "Daydream", põsepuna ja bronzer. Tanya lauvärvid on väga hea pigmeniga, ühte paletti on mahtunud originaalsed toonid, mida ma ehk muidu ei oskakski vaadata. Seekordses silmameigis saavad kokku "Candy Glam" paleti tumedamad toonid. 



Silmameigi kuninganna on lauvärv nimega "Plumberry" - mahlane ploomitoon, mida ma varem polegi kasutanud. Hajutasin silma "Creme Brulee" nimelise tooniga ja heledamad nüansid kingib "Ballet Slippers". Lauvärvi all kasutasin aga Urban Decay primerit. Kui sul on plaan endale Tanya Burri lauvärvide valikust midagi osta, siis soovitan kindlasti silmameigi all kasutada jumestuskreemi või primerit, see teeb värvid erksaks ja nad püsivad vajadusel hommikuni. Tanya palett "Rosy Flush Cheek" on minu absoluutne lemmik. Ma soovin, et mul oleks väike kast neid varuks! Nad on kergelt kreemjad, jäävad näol täiesti veatud ja minu roosa põsepuna "Pretty Peony" lööb näo särama. Mul on võrratult hea meel, et Tanya tooted on nii kvaliteetsed ja tekitavad soovi neid hamstri kombel endale varuda. Nii juhtub alati, kui miski mulle väga meeldima hakkab. Sellised jutud reedel. Ah jaa, kuidas sulle meeldib parukas, mis on omakorda inspireeritud "Candy Glami" paletist? Kuidagi peab ju seda sügist helgemaks kruttima ja miks mitte roosa parukaga?

“You remind me of Katy Perry!”


 A brief encounter in the street could lead to a Stellarium makeover. One early morning when I getting myself a cup of coffee on the go, I noticed a woman in the queue in front of me. She reminded me so much of Katy Perry, and as I can be very familiar with people, I just had to tell her: “You really remind me of Katy Perry!” She looked at her coffee cup, smiled, and said: “Yes, I get that sometimes…”.

By the end of that conversation, I just couldn’t resist and asked if this mysterious black-haired woman would like to come do a Stellarium makeover. She promised to give it a thought, so I gave her my card. When I was leaving, I also got to know that this Katy Perry look-alike woman is actually called Kati. Spring become summer. Kati was still thinking. Summer was over and gave place to autumn. Until the H&M campaign was announced. 


So I wrote to Kati and said that this campaign is definitely a sign that she is much welcome in Stellarium. Kati was still hesitant and thinking about it. One evening I finally got her much needed “yes”. So last week in the H&M showroom, an amazingly expeditious team of four women got together - they were all working around Kati. One was doing her hair, another one was doing her makeup, the third one was choosing the outfit, and the fourth one was taking pictures. Our night was full of excitement, chocolate candies, and coffee. All in all it took us eight fun hours and photographer Meisi Volt got four photo series of Kati. Our photo sessions were made after Katy Perry’s H&M campaign that currently has taken over all the streets of Tallinn. As all the Christmas parties are still ahead of us, the first two series are made for those who need inspiration for how to be the belle of the Christmas party ball. Mother always told me that you shouldn’t talk to strangers in the middle of the street, but this photo session proves the opposite. For the end of the year we have this wonderful makeover and there is only one thing left to ask - how do you like it?







Juhuslik kohtumine tänaval võib viia Stellariumis muutumismänguni. Ühel varahommikul läksin endale kohvi kaasa ostma ja järjekorras minu ees seisis naine, kes meenutas mulle Katy Perryt. Ma võin vahel päris familiaarne olla ja niisiis ütlesin talle: "Te meenutate mulle Katy Perryt!". Ta vaatas oma kohvitopsi, naeratas endamasi ja vastas: "Jah, vahel seda mulle ikka öeldakse..." 

Lõpuks ei suutnud ma kiusatusele vastu panna ja küsisin, kas see salapärane mustapeaga naine tuleks Stellariumisse muutumismängu. Ta lubas mõelda ja ma andsin talle oma nimekaardi. Lahkudes sain teada, et Katy Perryt meenutav sinisilmne kaunitar kannab nime Kati. Kevadest sai suvi. Kati ikka mõtles. Suvest sai sügis. Kati ikka mõtles. Kuniks ilmus välja H&M`i kampaania. Kirjutasin siis Katile, et see kampaania on kindlasti märk, et ta on Stellariumisse oodatud. Kati ikka mõtles. Kuniks ühel õhtul sain tema jah-sõna. 



Läinud nädalal sai Tallinnas H&M`i showroomis kokku tegus tiim - neli naist sagisid kõik ühe Kati ümber. Üks tegi soengut, teine meiki, kolmas valis riideid ja neljas pildistas. Meie õhtu oli tulvil elevust, trühvlikomme ja kohvi. Kokku kulus meil kaheksa lõbusat tundi ja fotograaf Meisi Volt tegi Katist neli pildiseeriat. Meie pildiseeriad on sündinud inspireerituna Katy Perry kampaaniast H&M`ile, mis on hetkel kõik Tallinna tänavad vallutanud. Kuna jõulupeod on ukse ees, siis esimesed kaks pildiseeriat on mõistagi pühendatud neile, kes otsivad inspiratsiooni, kuidas jõulupeol teistest kõige enam särada. Teised kaks pildiseeriat ilmuvad peagi! Ema ütles mulle alati, et võõrastega ei maksa tänaval rääkida, kuid seekordne fotoseeria ja rõõm tulemusest, tõestab vastupidist. Selline on meie aastalõpu muutumismäng ja mul jääb vaid üle küsida: kuidas sulle meeldib?

Perfume Portrait: Agent Provocateur Fatale Intense


For quite some time, I need everything that gives warmth. There's a fire crackling in the fireplace, I'm wearing a soft jumper, a cup of tea is always at an arm's reach, and of course I need perfumes that give warmth. There's a newcomer in the family of Agent Provocateur - Fatale Intense. 

When I find a new perfume for myself and someone asks what that wonderful perfume is that I'm wearing, I've sometimes said it's my little secret. Exactly. I need little secrets and sometimes it's nice to make the perfume your own little personal thing. But today I'm going to introduce it to you as well.

A very early Santa's little helper brought me Fatale Intense in the beginning of December and ever since that day we've been inseparable companions. It's juicy, sweet, and luxurious. All that I need in these damp days of cold wind and angry rain at the same time when I'm dreaming of a fairy tale cold winter, riding a Finnish sledge and white mornings. But a perfume can also bring light and warmth. 



The tempting top notes of Fatale Intense are blackberry, black licorice, and hot chili. What am I telling you! It's what I need right now! The heart notes carry a luscious cocktail of exotic flowers such as lotus, champaca, and red rose. The bottom notes belong to leather, amber, and vanilla. 

The whole combination turns into a softly purring kitten on the skin. The ones that others will hear as well. And ask about. The perfume has a soft feel of wrapping yourself in a warm bathrobe or sweater.  One part of the perfume is always the bottle. The two go hand in hand. Fatale Intense is in the iconic bottle of Fatale. This time it's deep red. The shade is a hint at the content, the intensiveness, the perfume that sparks passion. But for me, it associates with Christmas time. A perfect gift. A loyal invisible companion. A little secret.


Juba pikemat aega vajan ma kõike, mis annab sooja. Kaminas prõksub tuli, seljas on pehme kampsun, tassike teed on pidevalt käeulatuses ja loomulikult vajan ma parfüüme, mis kingivad soojust. Agent Provocateuri perekonnas on üks uustulnuk - "Fatale Intense". Kui ma leian enda jaoks uue parfüümi ja keegi küsib: "Oh, mis võrratut lõhna sa kannad?", siis olen aegajalt öelnud, et see on minu väike saladus. Just nimelt. Ma vajan väikseid saladusi ja vahel on vahva teha oma parfüümist pisike isiklik asi. Kuid täna tutvustan teda ka sulle.

Üks õige varajane päkapikk kinkis mulle juba detsembri alguses parfüümi "Fatale Intense" ja sellest päevast peale oleme lahutamatud kaaslased. See on mahlane, magus ja luksuslik lõhn. Kõik see, mida ma vajan nendesse rõsketesse päevadesse, kui mind tervitab külm tuul ja vihane vihm. Samal ajal, kui mina unistan muinasjutulisest külmast talvest, Soome kelguga sõitmisest ja valgetest hommikutest. Õnneks võib ka parfüüm valgust ja soojust jagada. 

"Fatale Intense`i" ahvatlevates tipunootides segunevad põldmurakas, must lagrits ning tuline tšilli. No ma räägin ju! See on see, mida ma praegu vajan! Lõhna südamenootides on rikkalik kokteil eksootilistest lilledest: lootosest, champacast ja punasest roosist. Põhjanootides põõnutavad nahk, merevaik ja vanilje. Kogu see kokteil muutub nahal mahedalt nurruvaks kiisuks. Ikka selliseks, et ka kõik teised kuulevad. Ja küsivad. "Fatale Intense" mõjub kehal pehmelt, justkui oleksin sooja kampsiku selga tõmmanud või end suurde hommikumantlisse mässinud.

Üks osa parfüümist on alati pudel. Need kaks käivad tegelikult käsikäes." Fatale Intense" lõhnapudel on ikoonilises Fatale pudelis. Sel korral on ta sügavpunane. Toon on vihjeks pudeli sisule, intensiivsele, kirge sütitavale parfüümile. Kuid minu jaoks meenutab ta just jõuluaega. Täiuslikku kingitust. Ustavat, nähtamatut kaaslast. Väikest saladust.

With This Ring



This week saw the engagement announcement of our president Toomas Hendrik Ilves. His chosen one is the exotic Latvian Ieva Kupce who has worn a stylish engagement ring since November. Stellarium will travel in time in today's story and have a look at famous engagement rings in recent history in the light of the president's engagement.


Jacqueline Bouvier and JFK 

The future president of the United States, John F. Kennedy was a man who didn't want to rush with marriage. There were so many women in the world - why get married straight away. In 1951 he met Jacqueline Bouvier and soon they were a radiant couple. But what didn't come was a proposal to get married. When Jackie who was working as a journalist at the time went to England in 1953 to cover the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, the otherwise fun-loving John F. Kennedy got worried - could someone snatch Jackie in England? So the man bought a ring from Van Cleef & Arpels, decorated with a large emerald and diamonds. After getting engaged, John admitted to Jackie that he had known for a year that they will get married. The woman replied with a snap: "How nice of you!"


Grace Kelly and prince  Rainier  

When Monaco's prince Rainier flew to America in 1956 to propose to the movie star Grace Kelly, he had a very special ring with him. A ring of simple design was decorated with colours of Monaco - small rubies and diamonds. When the couple had got engaged and the ring was presented to the media, the prince soon got shocked. Namely the groom discovered that move stars in America wore diamond rings with bold stones. His engagement ring was a poor man's jewel compared to that. So Grace Kelly got another engagement ring. The nervous Rainier rushed to Paris and bought a ring with a large diamond from Cartier. That was a hit. Grace was so fond of her engagement ring that she also wore it during the shooting of her last film High Society. If Grace Kelly's ring went on auction today, the price could climb to 4,6 million dollars.

Marilyn Monroe & Joe DiMaggio  

Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio were the dream couple for the world. DiMaggio gave Monroe a wonderfully simple ring with 36 cut diamonds. Two years after their romance started, the sex symbol and baseball player decided to get married in secret. They only invited six people to the registration, but the news got out, and around a hundred photographers turned up. A strange facet: Marilyn Monroe lived exactly as many years she had in her engagement ring - the woman died at the age of 36. The reason for her death was marked as suicide. "In the end, everyone will betray me," (siia oleks täpset tsitaati vaja kui tsitaadina kasutada) Marilyn Monroe said in an interview. That could be true, but with one exception. Her ex husband Joe DiMaggio was the one who organised her funeral in 1962, didn't publish a single book of memories on her, never gave comments to the media, and made sure that every week Marilyn's grave would have fresh flowers. 


Wallis Simpson and Edward VIII  

On December 10th 1936, King Edward VIII held a famous speech in which he gave up the throne. The femme fatale who took the king from England was the American Wallis Simpson. Already when she was the king's mistres, she often got precious jewels as presents. When Edward VIII gave up his throne, he was more than sure that his wife-to-be Wallis would suffer the most from it. That's why he often sent the woman jewels that each had a message engraved in them. Two months before stepping down, Edward and Wallis got engaged. Their engagement day was October 27th 1936. Wallis's ring had one of the biggest emeralds in the world. The ring had "We are ours now 27 X 36" engraved in it. 27 stood for the date when Wallis got officially divorced from his first husband, and 36 stood for the year 1936. The Cartier ring cost 10 000 pounds. After the death of Wallis Simpson, all her jewellery went on auction. Her engagement ring was bought by a Japanese businessman who paid 1,8 million pounds for it.


Sel nädalal sai teatavaks, et meie president Toomas Hendrik Ilves on kihlunud oma lätlannast kallima Ieva Kupcega. Stellarium heidab tänases loos pilgu minevikku: millised kihlasõrmused on nõnda legendaarsed, et nendest räägitakse veel tänagi? Vaata fotosid! Kelle sõrmus on sinu meelest kauneim? 


Jacqueline Bouvier ja John F. Kennedy 

Ameerika tulevane president John F. Kennedy oli mees, kes ei soovinud abieluga kiirustada. Maailmas oli ju veel nii palju naisi, miks kohe abielluda? Aastal 1951 kohtus ta Jacqueline Bouvieriga ja peagi sai nendest särav paar. Mida ei tulnud ega tulnud, oli abieluettepanek. Kaks aastat hiljem otsustas JFK naise kosida ja ostis talle Van Cleef & Arpelsi kihlasõrmuse, mida kaunistas suur smaragd ja teemandid. Pärast kihlumist tunnistas John Jackiele, et ta oli juba tervelt aasta aega teadnud, et nad abielluvad. Jackie nähvas seepeale: "Kui kena sinust!" Paraku otsutas Jackie sõrmuse hiljem ümber disainida. Täna on seda nähtud tema tütre Caroline`i sõrmes.

Grace Kelly ja vürst Rainier  

Kui Monaco vürst Rainier lendas aastal 1956 Ameerikasse, et kosida filmistaar Grace Kelly, oli tal kaasas väga eriline sõrmus. Lihtsa disainiga sõrmust ehtisid Monaco värvid - väikesed rubiinid ja teemandid. Kui paar oli kihlunud ja sõrmust ajakirjanduses esitlenud, sai vürst peagi šoki. Nimelt avastas peigmees, et Ameerikas olid filmistaaridel sõrmes uhkete kividega teemantsõrmused. Tema kihlasõrmus oli justkui vaese mehe ostetud juveel. Nii sai Grace Kelly veel teisegi kihlasõrmuse. Närviline vürst Rainier kiirustas Pariisi ja ostis naisele Cartier`i poest suure teemandiga sõrmuse. Sel korral pani vürst täppi. Grace kiindus oma kihlasõrmusesse sedavõrd, et kandis seda ka oma viimase filmi "High Society" võtetel. 


Marilyn Monroe ja Joe DiMaggio

Marilyn Monroe ja Joe DiMaggio olid maailma jaoks unistustepaar. DiMaggio kinkis Monroele võrratult lihtsa sõrmuse, kus oli 36 väikest lõigatud teemantit. Kaks aastat pärast romanssi, otsustasid seksisümbol ja pesapallur salaja abielluda. 1954aasta jaanuaris kutsusid nad oma registreerimisele kõigest kuus inimest, kuid uudis lekkis meediasse ja kohale tuli sadakond fotograafi. Õnn ei kestnud. Paar oli abielus kõigest 274 päeva. Nad lahutasid juba sama aasta oktoobris. Kui Marilyn 36aastaselt enesetapu sooritas, korraldas DiMaggio tema matused ja saatis nädalas mitu korda oma eksabikaasa hauale roose. Aasta 1999 müüdi Marilyn Monroele kuulunud sõrmus oksjonil ära hinnaga 772,500 dollarit.

Wallis Simpson ja Edward VIII  

10. detsembril aastal 1936 pidas kuningas Edward VIII kuulsa kõne, kus ta loobus troonist. Saatuslik naine, kes võttis Inglismaalt kuninga, oli ameeriklanna Wallis Simpson. Juba sel ajal, kui Wallis oli kuninga armuke, sai ta sageli kingituseks hinnalisi juveele. Kui Edward VIII troonist loobus, oli ta enam kui kindel, et selles loos kannatab kõige rohkem tema tulevane abikaasa Wallis. Seepärast saatis ta naisele sageli juveele, kus igal graveeringul on oma sõnum. Kaks kuud enne troonist loobumist palus Edward Wallise naiseks. Nende kihlumispäevaks sai 27.oktoober 1936. Wallise sõrmusel ilutses maailma üks suurimaid smaragde. Sõrmusele oli graveeritud "We are ours now 27 X 36". 27 tähendas kuupäeva, millal Wallis sai oma eelmiselt abikaasalt ametlikult lahutatud ja 36 tähendas aastat 1936. Cartier` sõrmus maksis 10 000 naela. Pärast Wallis Simpsoni surma läksid kõik tema ehted oksjonile. Tema sõrmus müüdi 1.8 miljoni naelaga.
