Packing for China

Pakime nüüd lapaduud lapaduud juhei. Ma olin nii tige (jes, tige) kui eesti toll Pariisi reisu Batiste kuivšampooni mult napsas. Seekord olen targem, panen aerosoolid päris pagasisse ja duubeldan veelgi kuivemate ainetega käsipagasis. Nüüd on mul Lushi hambapasta tablettidena ja šampoon plus palsam batoonikesena. Ikka selleks, et olen veits paranoiline, et pagas läheb kaotsi ja siis olengi ulapeal omadega. Nii. Veel läheb kotti kindlalt ultramoodne kraam eau teksakomplekt pluuse-seelik, muidugi veits sportlikke asju ka, logelemiseks. Kuna me plaanisime Hiina spaad ka teha, siis uikarid tulevad ka. Puhkusemode inimese kombel tuleb kampa 3 eritooni matti huulevärvi, et sekundiga überglämmiks daameks muunduda. Ah, hunnik testereid ka, et vaba aega sisustada. Mis veel mis veel. Raamat muidugi. Enda kujundatud lausa. Ma küll lugesin enne disainimist mustandi läbi, kuid nüüd on lemmik autori päris toode lõpuks käes ja läheb ülelugemiseks, lemmik ehk Miranda July. Muidugi tuleb ehteid täiega kaasa krabada, viimati hangitud tuusad kõrvakad kindlalt kaasa, iga look saab nendega punkte juurde. Ja siis kõigest tuhat nelisada viiskend asja veel mis ma nüüd pakkima pean edasi :D
I was soooooo angry when at the Estonian customs took away my Batiste dry shampoo when travelling to Paris. I shall be less stupid this time, because liquid or not, aerosol is aerosol & should go in the luggage. Why dry? I have a bit of a phobia of losing my luggage so I always want double of everything in my handbag. Here comes Lush dry shampoo and conditioner as a chunk and dry toothpaste as pills. Win. I also use my vacay time wisely spending away all the testers, so bunch of these are coming too. What else, something ultra fashionable like a matching denim skirt and shirt and something ultra comfy like sportswear. Then, one thing that gives instant look of full on glam make-up – a bright matte lip tint. 3 of those in different shades to travel with me. We also wanted to try out some Chinese spa’s, that means a swimsuit, you almost can’t see it cause it’s white and it’s lace like. Hmmm. Oh a book, the one that I have designed myself actually, by my favorite author, Miranda July, I’ve read the draft before designing, but now it’s time for the real deal. And last but not least, big bold earrings to spice up any outfit. Ok, that’s it for now, I only have to pack like a thousand more things :D

Mis sõna see selline on “väisama”. Igastahes. Väisasin teate siin sellise sooja eesti disaineri poekest nagu Mare Kelpman ja Kelpman Textile – meeldis. Mõnus õhkkond, väga suur valik ja täiega tunda, et inimene on kogu oma hinge kudumitesse põiminud. Ken Oja tegi mõned ülesvõtted, näitame Aljonaga pidulikult kahte eri viisi Kelpman sallide kandmiseks, minu jaoks on sall olnud alati parimaks kaitsealaks, nii, et parim sall on selline sall mille sisse ennast mässida ja kohe mitu korda. Nagu salli-vasall.
Visited the estonian designer’s shop Kelpman Textile by Mare Kelpman. It’s a really comfy and friendly space with loads of stuff to choose from. You can literally feel that Mare has knitted her soul into each piece. Every colour is thoughtful and every shape is complimenting any shape. Anyhow me and Aljona are showing how to wear some Kelpman scarves in the picture by Ken Oja. My preference is the bigger the better, it’s like my little woolen fortress, I just love to feel like a majestic burrito.

Ise olin sellel päeval rokkimas külmakartliku rohukonna looki. Varastasin mütsi Madiselt ja panin 2 kevadjakki üksteise otsa.
I myself was rocking the freezing green frog look that day, stole a hat from Madis and had 2 spring jackets on at once.

Harness fun with Ida Tau

helene_harness01

Ammust aega pole olnud võimalust kuritarvitada oma kalli pildivõtja Eva-Liisa Orupõllu kunstiannet, aga õnneks kõik head asjad juhtuvad korraga, nagu ka halvad asjad ja hea, et Evi tuli Tallinna külla, tahtsin teha ülesvõtteid eesti nahadisainikatest Ida Tau traksidest, puudutada World Recycle Weeki kaltsukast saadud Ivo Nikkolo ülikonnaga ja testida oma lokkidel Evo šampussi.

Ida Tau kohta täpsemalt, algul sündisid traksid disaineri isiklikuks otstarbeks, et vürtsitada minimalistlikku stiili ühe lisaelemendiga. Tavaline kampsik või särk muutub nendega täitsa uueks riideesemeks, mis on ka tõsi. Mulle meeldib, et üks aksessuaar on samal ajal nii puhas ja siivutu. Trakse saab TALI poest ja Ida Tau käest otse tellides instagram.com/ida_tau

Juuste kohta nii palju, et Evo on üks uus keskmisest vaimukama copywritinguga ja vannituba mitte koledaks tegeva välimusega juuksesari mida ma testin. Fotodel on juuksed värskelt pestud nii et oma silm on kuningas. Mul oli peas Ritual Salvation, täitsa tahaks testida midagi nendelt ka spetsiifiliselt lokkidele, kuigi ka see toimis.

Recycle Weekist aga saab rohkem infot [siit] ja ma andsin ka vene ETV+ inteka ka, kui oskad keelt, siis see [siin].

Long time no shooting with my girl Eva-Liisa Orupõld, but fortunately she arrived to Tallinn just in time and I got to use her artsy skills to show off some fresh estonian leather design by Ida Tau, some second hand Ivo Nikkolo suit because it’s World Recycle Week and some freshly shampooed curls with Evo.

Ida Tau started to make these leather harnesses for herself, just to spice up her minimal style a little, turn regular white shirt into something else, then her friends wanted some too and then it turned into a brand. I like them for their kinkyness and simplicity all in one accesory. You can get these from TALI store or by contacting Ida Tau directly instagram.com/ida_tau

And about the hair, Evo is a new brand that I’m testing with some kickass copywriting and nice package design that doesn’t ruin my bathroom interior. In the pictures my curls are freshly washed with Ritual Salvation shampoo + conditioner. I’d love to try something especially for the curly hair, but this worked alright too.

Recycle or we will eat your pants! More info on the Recycle Week [here], I also gave an interview on the topic to a russian channel ETV+ so if you are a speaker, check it our [here].
