Chatting with the former First Lady


It's been the busiest October of my life. There has been an event, a little confusion, a lovely encounter or a new experience literally every day. In the beginning of the month, I was invited to the talk show 'Evelin' of the former first lady Evelin Ilves. Evelin was doing a story on my old friend and Stellarium's co-author Mart Sander, who has written men's perfume portraits for the blog.

I met Mart Sander when I was 16, and I went to do an interview with him. Our friendship still lasts. So, the editor of the show invited me to the show as Mart's muse. I invited my daughter Rene along to sit in the audience, and when she came to me in a nice grey dress in the evening saying she is planning on wearing that to the show, I realised I had completely forgotten to think about what to wear. I stood in front of my wardrobe and all I could see were black dresses that are chic, yes, but I wanted a bit of colour for the show... 

As always, my head ran empty, and all of a sudden I realised I should look at what I've been wearing for Stellarium's Girl Friday posts over time. I was flicking through the images until I stumbled upon the red adidas dress... I decided I'll take it and the problem was solved. I would have never imagined that outfit posts could be useful retrospectively. But they are when your head is empty and you have no idea what to wear. I'm sharing pictures taken during the show, and those who want to watch the show, can do it here.


See on olnud kõige kiirem oktoober minu elus. Eranditult iga päev on olnud mõni suur sündmus, väike segadus, tore kohtumine või erakordne elamus. Kuu alguses kutsuti mind Evelin Ilvese telesaatesse "Evelin". Nimelt portreteeris Evelin minu pikaajalist sõpra ja Stellariumi kaasautorit Mart Sanderit, kes on blogile kirjutanud meesteparfüümide arvustusi.

Ma ise kohtusin Mart Sanderiga 16aastaselt, kui läksin temaga intervjuud tegema ja meie sõprus on kestnud tänaseni. Seega leidis saate toimetaja mind üles ja kutsus saatesse, kui Mardi muusa. Nimelt on Mart mind maalinud ja olen sellest ka blogis kirjutanud, loo leiab siit. Kui rääkida stuudios saatekülaliseks käimisest, siis mina kutsusin publiku sekka istuma oma tütre Rene ja kui ta tuli õhtul pidulikus hallikas kleidis minu juurde ja ütles, et plaanib sellega saate lindistusele tulla, hakkasin mõtlema, et olin sootuks unustanud, mida selga panna. Seisin oma garderoobi ees ja silma hakkasid vaid musta värvi kleidid, mis on küll šikid, kuid tahtsin saatesse pisut värvi... 

Nagu ikka, jooksis mu pea tühjaks ja järsku tabasin end mõttelt, et peaksin kähku vaatama, mida olen läbi aegade Stellariumi Girl Friday postitustes kandnud. Lappasin endast pilte, kuniks jõudsin punase adidas kleidini... Postituse, kus kannan seda kleiti teise soenguga ja keset sügavat talve, leiab siit. Otsustasin, et seda punast kleiti ma ka kannan ja mure oli murtud. Ma poleks kunagi arvanud, et outfittide üles postitamisest võib hiljem kasu olla. Nimelt siis, kui pea on tühi ja pole kõige vähemalgi määral aimu, mida selga panna... Jagan pilte, mida tehti saate ajal ja need, kes soovivad saadet järgi vaadata, saavad teha seda siit.

My one and only... Sigma brush


Every woman's makeup bag should hold a few good quality brushes. Makeup artists always recommend to have a good long think about what kind of brushes you exactly need. There's also no point in going overboard with getting brushes. I have used Sigma brushes for about a year, and today I'm introducing my most favourite one. The one I always have in my bag. 

When a new brush makes it into my life, it means it takes some time to get used to and to get handy. A new brush is something you have to work into your hand. Speaking of brushes, I don't like set rules for what you can do with a certain brush. It's certainly necessary for those who are learning to do makeup or who are still at early stages of collecting brushes, but soon enough it will be clear that one brush can be wonderfully multifunctional. Out of Sigma brushes, my number one is their Tapered Highlighter - F35 that I call my one and only. 

These types of brushes win my heart quickly. I love adding slightly lighter powder under my eyes, and the nice long stroke that the Tapered Highlighter gives me, is almost therapeutic. Secondly, I love lightly contouring my face with it. As the name hints, it's created for adding highlighter. You can brush highligher on cheeks, nose, chin with it. What makes the Tapered Highlighter - F35 different from my other brushes, is the sharp end. Once I did my eye makeup and I wasn't very happy with it. Finally I used the brush and blended the makeup perfect. By the way, I don't even like big powder brushes that much, especially when I only want to powder the T zone, the Tapered Highlighter - F35 comes in handy again. 

I hope I could kill two flies with one slap today - open a new section "My one and only..." and introduce the most multifunctional brush in the world. Sigma brushes are available in Makeup24 web shop which you can find here. I've often been asked which eye shadow brushes a woman should own, so next week that question will get an answer.

Iga naise kosmeetikakotis võiks olla mõned kvaliteetsed pintslid. Meigikunstnikud soovitavad alati justkui ühest suust pikalt mõelda, milliseid pintsleid sa ikka täpselt vajad. Samuti pole mõtet pintslite soetamisega liiale minna. Mina olen umbes aasta kasutanud Sigma pintsleid ja täna tutvustan sulle oma kõige lemmikumat. Pintslit, mis on alati mul kotis kaasas.


Kui minu ellu ilmub uus pintsel, tähendab see seda, et pintsliga on vaja harjuda ja see peab saama käepäraseks. Uus pintsel on ikka midagi sellist, mis tuleb justkui käe järgi sisse töötada. Rääkides pintslitest, siis mulle ei meeldi ette kirjutatud reeglid, mida ühe või teise pintsliga saab teha. Kindlasti on see vajalik nendele, kes õpivad alles meikima või alustavad oma esimeste pintslite kogumist, kuid õige pea saab selgeks, et üks pintsel on võrratult multifunktsionaalne. 

Sigma pintslitest on minu jaoks esikohal nende Tapered Highligter- F35, mida nimetan selleks ainsaks ja õigeks. Seda tüüpi pintslid võidavad kiiresti minu südame. Ma armastan alati silmade alla lisada pisut heledamat puudrit ja see mõnus pikk pai, mille Tapered Highligter mulle alati teeb, on lausa raviv. Teiseks meeldib mulle selle pintsliga ülekõige kergelt nägu kontuurida. Nagu nimigi ütleb, on ta loodud highligheri lisamiseks. Sellega saab põsesarnadele, ninale ja lõuale edukalt kergelt highlighterit lisada. Minu kõigist teistest pintslitest erineb Tapered Highligter-F35 oma peene otsa poolest. Kord tegin endale silmameigi, millega ma päris rahule ei jäänud. Lõpuks kasutasin selle sama pintsli otsa ja hajutasin silmameigi peaaegu täiuslikuks. 

Muide, mulle ei meeldi kuigi suured puudripintslid, eriti, kui tahan vaid T-tsooni puuderdada, siis siin on Tapered Highligter-F35 taas omal kohal. Loodan, et täna sain lüüa kaks kärbest ühe hoobiga - avada uue rubriigi "My one and only..." ning tutvustada sulle maailma kõige multifuntsionaalsemat pintslit. Sigma pintslid on müügil netipoes Makeup24, mille lingi leiad siit. Ah jaa... Minult on palju küsitud, milliseid lauvärvipintslid võiksid ühe naise kosmeetikakotis olla, seega juba järgmisel nädalal saab see küsimus vastuse.

Girl Friday: She knocked and waited ...


My mother has always taken me on walks in Kalamaja. That's where she remembered her childhood. Kalamaja holds my mother's warm memories - yards where she played, apple trees she climbed, and forget me not flowers that grew in every garden.... My mother took me to Kalamaja when it wasn't one of the most popular areas in Tallinn, where many now think it's a question of prestige to live.  

But I have my own memories with Kalamaja. I looked at the lovely wooden houses and dreamed of rummaging in those hallways. I like creaky stairs and the bizarre romance that lingers around slightly abandoned houses. For this series, Meisi and I peeked into the corridors of Kalamaja houses, and we shot this autumn outfit in this green hallway. This series reminded me of waiting. I have always been good at waiting. But in this series, I was playing a girl who's slightly upset about when she arrives and finds out the host is running late. Nobody else was there to let her in either. Now she has to kill time... So here I am. Myself and a green door and a green hallway. Maybe we take it too much for granted that every door should open for us immediately?

Mu ema on mind alati Kalamajja jalutama viinud. Nimelt möödus seal tema lapsepõlv. Kalamajas on mu emal soojad mälestused - hoovid, kus ta mängis, õunapuud, mille otsas ronis ja ära-unusta-mind lilled, mida olevat seal igas hoovis kasvanud... Ema viis mind Kalamajja juba siis, kui see polnud Tallinna üks populaarseimaid paiku, kus paljud peavad täna prestiiži küsimuseks elada. 

Kuid Kalamajaga tekkisid mul omad mälestused. Lapsena emaga seal uidates vaatasin hoopis neid hubaseid puumajasid ja unistasin, et saaksin kolada nende koridorides. Mulle meeldivad naksuvad trepid ja kogu see veider romantika, mis kergelt mahajäetud majade ümber justkui hõljub. Selle pildiseeria tarvis piilusime Meisiga Kalamaja majade koridoridesse ja ühe sügisese outfiti pildistasime üles just selles rohelises koridoris. See pildiseeria meenutas mulle ootamist. Ma olen alati hea ooataja olnud. Kuid sellel pildiseerial mängisin ma pisut solvunud tüdrukut, kes jõuab külla, kuid avastab, et võõrustaja ise hilineb. Kedagi teist ka pole mind tuppa sisse laskmas. Ja nüüd on vaja aega parajaks teha... Siin ma olen. Mina. Ja roheline uks. Ja roheline esik. Ehk võtamegi vahel liiga iseenesest mõistetavalt, et iga uks peaks meile kohe avanema?

We Are Going To Be Friends


Although autumn is a colorful time, we will not have to wait long for the shrill winds, dampness and darkness. You know that feeling when you look out the window and shiver in the face of the windy weather. However, there is something in the autumn, that gives us the chance to enjoy it and stroll playfully through the leaves.

Of course, it is warm knitwear, which gives us a comforting wrap. Additional fun is provided by warm dresses, which have been sulking in the storage throughout the summer... Now is the time to take them out again. And, of course, your furry vests are about to triumph. Yes, for me autumn is always a challenge. In particular, it calls for courage to step into a dark autumn night, where nothing inviting seems to be waiting. But it was the British brand Superdry that we took out for a photo session on such a night, that I would rather have spent idoors. And you know what - the autumn is not really guilty of anything - if you get properly dressed and walk around, you will see everything in a different light at dusk. Even the wind can become your friend, as it  plays around passionately in your hair and whispers all sorts of melodies in your ear. In one bizarre moment the autumn wind whispered to me: "We Are Going To Be Friends!" Perhaps it was right? My first outfit in collaboration with the Superdry is in front of you!

Kuigi sügis on värviküllane aeg, ei pea me kaua ootama tuuli, rõskust ja pimedust. Tead ju seda tunnet, kui sa vaatad aknast seda tuulist ilma ja väristad õudusest õlgu. Kuid siiski on sügises midagi, mis annab meile võimaluse seda nautida ja mängeldes läbi krõbisevate lehtede astuda. 

Mõistagi on need soojad kudumid, millesse on end lausa lohutav mähkida. Vähem rõõmu ei tee soojad kleidid, mis suvel kapis mossitavad... Nüüd on aeg jälle need välja võtta. Ja loomulikult teevad karvased vestid oma võidukäiku. Jah, minu jaoks on sügis alati väljakutse. Eriti nõuab minult vaprust astuda õhtul pimedasse sügisesse, kus pole justkui mitte midagi kutsuvat. Kuid just Briti brändiga Superdry tegime pildiseeriad sügisõhtul, mille veedaksin parema meelega hoopis toas. Ja tead tead mis, sügis ei ole tegelikult milleski süüdi - kui sa paned end soojalt riidesse ja jalutad mõnusalt ringi, näed hämaras kõike hoopis teises valguses. Isegi tuulest võib saada sinus sõber, ta mässab kirglikult juustes ja sositab kõrvu igasugu mõtteid. Ühel veidral hetkel sosistas sügistuul mulle kõrva: "Meist saavad veel sõbrad!" Võibolla on tal isegi õigus? Milline on sinu suhe sügisega?
