coconut oil


i destroy my hair every day. i dye it almost black and then bleach it back to blonde (or, well, i tried). i go outside with wet hair. and what's even worse, my last trip to a hair salon was in may. so yeah.
i found this bottle in the nearby pak foods store, heated it up and massaged into my hair. guess what. my hair doesn't even look like it's had 40 minutes of strong bleach. no split ends. no breaking. and it feels like soft gold. i'm amused. what's even better - it cost only 1.29£ and it's the best hair product i've ever owned. yes, even compared to salon products!


since coconut oil thaws at temperatures less than 24C, i usually let the bottle sit in a mug full of hot water for a few minutes and then it's ready to use. i leave it in my hair for the night and then just wash it out in the morning with shampoo and some conditioner (the latter is not really needed anymore since the coconut oil softens it) and that's it. healthy hair for less!




here's what it looks right now: quite coppery, but still nice and shiny. i'm going to re-dye it in a few days with an ashy shade of dark blonde for a more even result (my roots are still showing) but at least i don't have to wait a month until the next bleaching session. lol.


what's your best secret hair product? 




and finally... today's outfit. since it's still very warm and sunny in england, i'm going to wear summer clothes as well. after all, the trees are still quite green and we dry our laundry outside. plus, i really like this dress and it feels just right to wear it today.

baby lettuce


so. it's official. *drumroll* we're having a baby!
since a goldfish would be too expensive with its fancy bowls and filters,
we decided to have a pet lettuce.

we're planting it tomorrow.
beware, nottingham.

shelter


model: yuri
dress: missfit designs

my first shoot with an asian model. the whole shoot was just so beautiful, with yuri dancing in the warm autumn sunlight, the shadows of dead trees leaving marks on her bare hands. 
it was also my first trip to derby, a nearby town quietly sleeping by the river derwent.


i miss home so badly, the smell of our autumn, the light of our country.


november, please be kind

boot romance


ostsin eile lõpuks ometi saapad, mida ma olen juba eelmisest talvest saadik tahtnud. või noh, päris sama paari ei ajanud taga, aga mulle meeldivad tohutult sellised kontsad (kiilud?). seejuures ka suur tänu petsile, kes viitsis minuga kingašopingule tulla. ilma temata poleks ma ilmselt kunagi suutnud hallide ja pruunide vahel valida. ning jaa, mu saapad on köögileti peal, aga nad on täiesti uued ja kandmata, seega võib :P

15-naelaste saabaste kohta (u. 17.5 euri) on nad küllaltki mugavad ning talve jaoks piisavad soojad. üldiselt ei tohiks siin temperatuurid alla -2 kraadi väga langeda (eelmine talv oli erandiks), seega võin ma nüüd julgelt lund ja jääd ootama hakata. ahjaa, ning helebeež talvemantel ei teeks ka paha.

yuksil on sarnased saapad: [link]


yesterday i finally bought the boots i'd wanted since last winter. well, not exactly the same boots, but i really like this type of heels (wedges). my sincere thanks to p who was brave enough to come shoe shopping with me (and who told me to choose brown instead of grey). oh, and yes, the photo is taken on the kitchen counter (say hello to my cereals!), but i had never worn them anywhere, so...


i think they're quite comfortable (i've never worn wedges before) and warm enough for winter. they weren't very expensive either, only 15£ (around 17.5€). now i just need a beige winter coat to complete the outfit ;)


my friend yuki has similar boots! [click]


wholesale-dress.net'i sinine kleit, emme kapist pärit vintage kott ning mu uued saapad.

today's outfit - azure blue dress from wholesale-dress.net, red vintage bag from my mom's closet and my new boots : )

midagi head: birdy ja florence + the machine.
piltidel peaks kindlasti klikkama.
ning ma tahan vist mõlemat albumit endale jõuludeks.

my two recent obsessions - birdy and florence + the machine.
click on the pictures and you will be taken to a secret place :)
seriously thinking of buying these albums as an early christmas present for myself.

paar päeva tagasi saabus photoboxist mu tasuta fotoraamat - kõik on täitsa kena, ainult nad võiksid pakkuda ka teisi formaate peale ruudukujulise - kuna suurem osa mu pilte on portreed, tuleb neid ruudu sisse surumiseks kas väiksemaks lõigata või siis väga väärakalt äärde paigutada. see-eest maastike puhul töötab täitsa hästi. :D üldiselt läheb see lähima paari päeva jooksul facebooki ning detsembri alguseks saadan ma raamatu ühele õnnelikule võitjale koju kätte :)
sobib?

received my free photo book from photobox a few days ago - it's quite nice, but i do wish they offered more options besides the square format - since most of my pictures are portraits and portraits never look good when jammed in squares. however, landscapes look better than expected.
i am going to upload it to facebook in a few days and in the beginning of december one lucky winner will find it in their postbox :)
everyone okay with that?

workshop


armas väike kristina kadri pööningul, suvi '11

workshopist veel paar sõna: väga suure tõenäosusega on see tasuta. koosneb kahest osast. esimene pool on modelli(de) pildistamine (kohta ma praegu ei avalda, kuna see pole veel 100% kinnitatud) ning seejärel oleks fototöötluse aeg (suures ruumis prožektoriga). iga osaleja saab hunniku "värve" ka pärast koju kaasa. 
aga on ka tingimus: kõik peavad kaasa võtma ühe eseme, mida pildistamisel kasutada.
kohtade arv on piiratud, 10-12 (sest ma rohkem ei jaksa)


osalemiseks (või lihtsalt osalemisest huvitumiseks) piisab lihtsalt e-maili saatmisest, seejärel saan ma kõik inimesed meililisti lisada ning workshopi infot kohe otse ja kiirelt jagada.
toimumisaeg ja -koht: jaanuar 2012, tallinn

detsembris pildistan siin inglismaal oma esimesi pulmi. selleks tuleb mul sõita rongiga londonisse (trains!!! i love trains) ning sealt edasi devonisse. ma isegi ei kujuta ette, milline see kõik olema saab, sest ma pole varem kunagi ühtegi pulma pildistanud (rääkimata siis üldse pulmas olemisest), aga loota võib, et kõik läheb ikka hästi ning et edaspidi tahavad ka inglased mind oma pulmadesse pildistama.

going to shoot my first wedding in england in december. for this i have to take the train to london (trains!!! i love trains) and then to devon. i can't even imagine what it's all going to be like because i've never photographed a wedding before (not speaking of being in one), but let's hope that everything will go well and that the english will want me to shoot their weddings from now on, ha.

2012 kalender
2012 calendar

panin esimest korda elus ka kalendri müüki - äkki keegi on huvitatud? ülalolevalt lingilt saab siis osta.
samuti on müüki tulemas erinevad pildid ja postkaardid. oleks mul ainult rohkem aega nendega tegeleda.
mõelge jõuludele, iga ost finantseerib minu eestisse tulekut :D

put a calendar for sale for the first time in my life - maybe someone is interested? you can buy it from the link above. i'm also going to sell some other prints and postcards. wish i had more time to deal with these things though. think of christmas, every purchase is an investment towards my trip to estonia :D
