The photo that angered my mum



I have had a romantic relationship with romantic skirts since I was little. So when I saw this skirt in the store this winter, I didn't hesitate whether to take it or leave it. Of course it travelled straight into my wardrobe to wait for the summer. I had a thousand and one ideas about how I'm going to sail through the summer in this skirt.  

And of course I wanted to capture my find for my virtual diary. I picked a slightly different style top to go with the skirt, and it seemed to me that the naughty cut of the white top is exactly the thing to melt into one with my romantic skirt. When I got the photos, I was happy. I liked the image where the top is perhaps a little too revealing, but at the same time there was nothing indecent about this shot. But it so happened that not everyone shared my opinion. Namely, my mother recently got a smartphone where she follows what I and her granddaughter get up to. Anyway, I posted this photo on Instagram in the beginning of the week and a few minutes later my mother called. She said that the photo I had just posted on Instagram was too much. "I have raised you like a lady, the ones who pose like that are... I'm not even going to say who pose like that..." my mother told me off. 

I felt like a kid who had accidentally sprayed a teacher in a water fight at school and sighed. So I took the opening image down from Instagram after carefully chosen words of scorn... And I started wondering meanwhile - where indeed is the line in regards to what can be posted and what not? So eventually I decided I'm going to post it on the blog anyway... Even if it results in a call from my mother... I'm wishing everyone a beautiful weekend, and I strongly recommend everyone to do what you think is right!


Romantiliste seelikutega on mul väikesest peale olnud romantiline suhe. Seega, kui talvel seda seelikut poes nägin, ma isegi ei kahelnud, kas võtta või jätta. Loomuikult rändas see otsejoones kappi suve ootama. Mul oli 1000 ja 1 mõtet, kuidas ma selle seelikuga läbi suve purjetan.

Ja loomuikult soovisin selle leiu ka oma virtuaalse päeviku jaoks üles pildistada. Valisin seeliku juurde pisut teist stiili pluusi ja mulle tundus, et valge pluusi kelmikas lõige on just see, mis sulab ühte minu romantilise seelikuga. Kui pildid avasin, olin igati rahul. Mulle meeldis postituse avakaader, kus pluus on ehk pisut liiga lahti, kuid samas polnud minu silmis selles pildis midagi sündsusetut. Paraku ei jaganud kõik minu arvamust. 

Nimelt sai minu ema hiljuti nutitelefoni, kus ta siis jälgib läbi Instagrami nii minu kui ka oma lapselapse tegemisi. Igatahes panin nädala alguses selle postituse avapildi oma Instagrami ja kõigest kaks minutit hiljem helistas mu ema. Ta ütles, et pilt, mille olin äsja Instagrami postitanud, on liig, mis liig, mis liig, mis liig! 

"Mina olen kasvatanud sind kui daami," manitses ema. "Nii poseerivad... Ma ei hakkagi ütlema, kes nii poseerivad..." jätkus manitsus. Tundsin ennast nagu laps, kes on koolis veesõja käigus kogemata õpetaja märjaks pritsinud ja ohkasin. Niisiis võtsin ma selle kaadri Instagramist pärast hoolikalt valitud õpetlikke sõnu maha... Ja siinkohal tekkis mul äkki küsimus. Tõepoolest, kust läheb piir, mida postitada või mitte? Lõpuks otsustasin, et blogisse panen selle pildi üles... Tulgu või teine kõne minu emalt... Soovin kõigile ilusat nädalavahetust ja soovitan soojalt: tehke seda, mida õigeks peate!

Instagram Inspiration: Meet Juniper and Fig!


Instagram has created a unique chance to be part of anyone's life who wishes to share what they're up to. So, animals, whose owners happily share images of their pet, have become social media stars as well. The indisputable favourite of our family is a fox named Juniper - he has all the prerequisites of being a perfect Instagram star - a fluffy fox whose owner shoots cute images and video snippets that you can watch forever. 

A new member was recently added to Juniper's family - his name is Fig and he was rescued from a fox farm where he would have become part of a fur coat. Fig's destiny is food for thought - he was held in a small cage and both his paw and left eye have been hurt. People have donated money to get Fig's paw fixed up, and they're rooting for him. Juniper's Instagram account has also made me think about how differently people can be educated about wearing fur - you can tell them off and be angry, but a life of a fox that was saved, is a lot more thought provoking. 

Juniper is no doubt one of the best marketed foxes around, because every fan can purchase a painting that Juniper has made with his own paws. There's also a bottle with fox hair, a shirt with an image of the famous fox, and polaroid images (shop here). I'm convinced that my daughter would melt when she sees the photos, or the shirt, so I won't enlighten her with this info yet... How cute are the gifts that can be found from Juniper!

Our family has followed Juniper's account for a year, and those who want to get acquainted with the cutest fox in the world, here he is! This Instagram Inspiration is dedicated to Juniper, Fig, and other cute creatures their owner keeps. Which animal accounts do you follow? Share your favourite accounts in the comments section and keep an eye also on my account which you can find here.



Instagram on loonud ainulaadse võimaluse saada osa igaühe elust, kes vaid soovib maailmaga oma tegemisi jagada. Nii on sotsiaalmeedia staarideks tõusnud ka loomad, kellest omanikud meelsasti klõpse jagavad. Meie pere konkurentsitu lemmik on rebane nimega Juniper. Tal on kõik eeldused olemaks täiuslik Instagrami täht – koheva karvaga rebane, kelle perenaine filmib temast imearmsaid videolõike, mida võibki vaatama jääda. 

Hiljuti lisandus Juniperi perekonda veel teinegi rebane, kes kannab nime Fig. Ta päästeti rebasekasvandusest, kus temast oleks saanud lihtsalt üks lõik kasukast. Figi saatus paneb mõtlema – teda on hoitud väikeses puuris ja viga on saanud nii tema käpp kui ka vasak silm. Selleks, et käpake korda saada, on inimesed annetanud raha ja hoiavad Figile pöialt. Juniperi Instagrami konto on mind pannud mõtlema ka sellele, kui erinevalt võib meid karusnaha kandmise teemadel harida – inimesi sageli hurjutatatakse end karusnahaga ehtimise eest, kuid palju enam puudutab see, kui lihtsalt vaadata ühe päästetud rebase elu ja elada kaasa tema ulakatee tegemistele. 

Kahtlemata on Juniper üks kõige paremini turundatud rebane maailmas, sest iga fänn saab soetada endale maali, mille on Juniper oma käpakestega teinud, e-poes on müügil ka pudelike rebasekarvadega, särgid kuulsa reinuvaderiga ja mõistagi polaroidpildid. Ma olen veendunud, et mu tütar sulaks päris kindlasti nii fotode kui ka särgi peale, seega ma igaks juhuks ei valgusta teda selle netipoe infoga ... 

Meie pere on Jumiperi kontot jälginud tervelt aasta. Minu seekordne Instagram Inspiration on täieikult pühendatud Juniperile, Figile ja teistele vahvatele tegelastele, keda nende omanik peab. Milliseid loomadele pühendatud kontosid sina jälgid? Jaga oma lemmikumaid kontosid Stellariumi kommentaariumis ja hoia pilk peal ka minu kontol, mille leiad siit.
