A few more photos from last Friday....as we walked through soho and china town, discussing how we would never give up this experience for something else. Sometimes you just gotta remind yourself what a amazing chance it is to live in New York at such young age. It's easy to forget that due the stress of little everyday problems.
Yesterday morning I woke up to very good news - one of my dangle feather ear cuffs is featured in the newest issue of Vogue Germany. The blue ear cuff fits perfectly into the denim themed shoot set in LA and featuring one of my favourite models Sam Rollinson.

I often get questions about where I stay when I'm in New York, the answer is a model apartment that I share with five to seven other girls. Coming from a big family, I am used to sharing bedrooms and waiting in a line for bathroom, so it's alright but it depends a lot on who your roommates are. I'm super lucky to have such nice people around me who all come from different countries and cultures - that's what makes life here so interesting.

I am one of those who could never do a smoothie diet, let alone a juice cleanse. After having a smoothie I am always left craving for some solid food..something crunchy. The only form of smoothie I really like is the smoothie bowl - looks and feels little bit more like an actual meal. I recently tried the Titan Smoothie Bowl at Organic Avenue but as having organic food for lunch everyday is an expensive habit in New York, I figured out the bowl is super easy to make at home. See below for the ingredients and instruction.
According to organicavenue.com: This nutrient-dense smoothie is packed with leafy greens, grasses, and algae that boost your energy and alkalize your body. Alkalizing fruit and protein-packed hemp seeds make this a perfectly balanced treat to enjoy at any time of day. And now get back to the kitchen and do-it-yourself. For the Green Smoothie Bowl (adjust the quantities how you like)
1/4 cup milk of your choice (almond, soy, full-fat)
1 ripe banana
1 cup fresh baby spinach
1/4 cup frozen mango
For the Toppings:
(more ideas: shredded coconut, chia seeds, honey, sliced kiwis, fresh berries, almonds, pumpkin seeds) In a blender, add the milk, banana, spinach and mango, in that order. Blend on low speed until the mixture is thick and creamy. You may have to tamp it down to help it blend evenly. Transfer to a bowl and let it set in the freezer while you prepare your toppings.
Time to give you a sneak peak of my favourites from H&M Conscious Exclusive collection again! In my last post I showed you a rather comfortable everyday spring look, my other favourite item from the collection was far from casual - long tight-fit v-neck dress made from recycled polyester covered in beads made from recycled plastic. I love the low rounded neckline at the back, narrow shoulder straps and the mix of mesh, beads and chiffon. It's nice to ditch the sweatpants and dress up at home for a change! But if I were actually going out in that dress, I'd do the opposite - dress it down with leather boots and an oversized sweater.
Get yourselves ready, H&M Conscious Exclusive lands in stores already this Thursday, April 16.
Seoses H&M Conscious Exclusive'i poodidesse jõudmisega 16.aprillil on mul suurepärane võimalus kinkida ühele lugejale need superlahedad statement kõrvarõngad samast kollektsioonist. Isegi nende pilkupüüdvate kõrvarõngaste puhul on kasutatud taaskasutatud materjalist valmistatud litreid. Taaskasutuse ja jätkusuutlikuse püüe läbib kusjuures tervet kollektsiooni, alates kingadest kuni nahkjakkideni.
Loosimises osalemiseks jäta kommentaaridesse oma e-mail ja juba 10.aprillil kuulutan võitja välja :)
Nende kõrvarõngaste puhul ma isegi katsetaks, kuidas oleks kanda vaid ühte korraga ja panna teise kõrva midagi sarnast kuid väiksemat nagu Louis Vuittoni FW 2014/15 shows näha võis.
