HIDE AND SEEK


I've done loads of gift shopping and dress packing as our next trip to Georgia is coming up very soon! I can't wait to let this hot sunbeam to spoil my cheeks and my taste senses be full of real hatchapuri, mtsvadi and all the yummy fruits that are ready! But of course, most importantly I'm excited to see the whole fam and beloved friends! 
So, as I've been pretty busy with getting ready for three weeks of paradise and celebrating friends' weddings and graduations, I'm sharing a lovely 'lilacy' outfit from summer 2015 today. Funny to look at so flat belly as I've got already so used to my insanely fast growing belly - if you're following me on Instagram (@emiliachochia), then you probably know what I'm talking about! 


Viimatised vabad hetked on kõik läinud kingituste hankimise ning kleidikeste pakkimisele, sest aeg on seal maal, et teha check-in meie kohe kätte jõudvale Gruusia reisile! Ei jõua ära oodata, et saaks juba kuumal päikesepaistel oma põski silitada lasta ning maitsemeeli hatchapuri, mtsvadi ja taevalike värskete puuviljadega hellitada! Kõige rohkem ootan muidugi taaskohtumisi pere ja kallite sõpradega! Varsti varsti!
Niisiis, kuna viimasel ajal on üsna palju tegemist olnud - valmistumine kolmeks nädalaks paradiisis, sõprade pulmad (lausa kaks pidu ühel nädalavahetusel, love is in the air!) ja koolilõpetamised, siis täna jagan teiega ühte sireli-hõngulist pildiseeriat suvest 2015. Lausa naljakas on vaadata nii siledat kõhujoont, olen oma hullumeelselt kiiresti kasvava punuga juba täitsa ära harjunud - kui mind Instagramis (@emiliachochia) jälgid, siis tead, millest räägin!

VALERIA'S BEAUTY BOX #1


My dear friend Valeria launched her very first Beauty Box recently and I was truly excited to try it out! I know how much she has been dealing with the perfect result and how much headache it can cause, but finally it's done and I think it looks fabulous! So let's peek inside: from Valeria's Beauty Box, you can find body scrub my Moshi with an absolutely heavenly smell (I chose Wild Mango), Dr. Hauschka Lavender Sandalwood body wash, two testers of greatly praised Sundari products, Avon Gel Shine nail polish (I chose the Crazy Orange colour), Turbliss Bioactive Peat Mask, ghd Final Fix hairspray (absolutely fantastic product!), two tanning lotions by Australian Gold and many different and tempting discount coupons. You can read more about the Beauty Box right here via Valeria's Blog and if it all looks alluring enough, get yours already today! ;)))


Minu armas blogisõbranna Valeria tuli hiljuti välja päris oma projektiga Valeria's Beauty Box. Ma olin juba päris elevile krutitud, kui lõpuks ilupakike minuni jõudis ning tooteid proovima sain hakata. Ma tean, kui palju vaeva ta selleks näinud on, et lõpptulemus perfektne saaks ning isegi, kui kogu protsessi vältel tuli veidike peavalu kannatada, siis usun, et Valeria on südamega asja ajades tõesti hea tulemuse saavutanud! Niisis, piilume natuke karbi sisu: Valeria's Beauty Box peidab endas taevaliku lõhnaga Moshi kehakoorijat (mina valisin omale Metsiku Mango), Dr. Hauschka lavendli-sandlipuu dušigeeli, kahte palju kiidetud Sundari tootetestrit, Avoni geellaki efektiga küünelakki (omale valisin Crazy Orange tooni), Turblissi bioaktiivset näomaski, ghd Final Fix juukselakki (absoluutselt fantastiline toode!), kahte solaariumikreemi Australian Goldilt ning palju erinevaid sooduskuponge. Rohkem infot ilupaki kohta leiad siit Valeria blogist ja kui see kõik Sinu jaoks piisavalt ahvatlev tundub, siis saad oma Beauty Boxi imelihtsalt tellida juba täna! ;)))

{MUMMY POST} ANSWERING YOUR QUESTIONS

Hello hey! Long time no see, huh? I've started answering the questions regarding baby topics, maternity and becoming a parent. Thank you all so so much who sent me these questions, I really wouldn't have thought that the interest is so huge! So, as soon as I started writing down my answers, I understood that there're too many to fit them all in one blog post, so here is the first part of my answers to your questions. Have a lovely Tuesday! x


Tsauki tsau! Pole ammu näinud, mis? Hakkasin juba mõnda aega tagasi vastama teie saadetud küsimustele seoses beebi- ja emmeteemade ning lapsevanemaks saamisega. Suur suur aitäh kõigile küsijatele, ma tõesti poleks uskunud, et huvi selle poole vastu nii suur on! Nii pea, kui hakkasin oma vastuseid kirja panema, sain aru, et küsimusi on ühe postituse jaoks liiga palju, seega siit tuleb esimene ports vastuseid teie saadetud küsimustele. Mõnusat teisipäeva! x


Do you feel baby kicks already?
Oh yes, we both do and believe me when I say this child is never out of energy :D

Kas tunned juba beebi liigutusi?
Oojaa, me mõlemad tunneme ning uskuge mind, sellel tital ei saa energiavarud küll vist kunagi otsa :D


How your families felt about your pregnancy?
Both of our families were indeed very very happy and however everyone sort of knew that with us it's not going to be too long wait, the reactions were still emotional and only positive :) Archil's parents already do have two grandchildren, but as mine don't, my mother is becoming a grandmother for the first time as well as my grandmother is finally getting a title of a great grandmother, so they're overwhelmingly proud and excited! Not to mention that Archil's parents are giving us calls way more often and ask how me and the little one are doing literally every single day :D

Kuidas teie perekonnad teie lapseootusesse suhtusid?
Mõlemad perekonnad olid otseloomulikult väga õnnelikud ja kuigi kõik teavad, et ma olen alati noorena emaks tahtnud saada ja et minu ja Archi puhul ei ole mingit pikka venitamist oodata, siis sellegi poolest olid vanemad väga emotsionaalsed ja igati positiivsed meie pere laienemise osas :) Archi vanematel küll juba kaks lapselast on, aga kuna minu omadel mitte, siis minu ema saab esimest korda vanaemaks, niisamuti saab vanaema lõpuks omale vanavanaema tiitli ja seetõõtu on nemad väga ülevoolavalt uhked ja elevil! Ma ei hakka mainimagi, et Archi vanemad meile kahtlaselt tihti helistama on hakanud ning vahete vahel uurivad päevas isegi mitu korda, kuidas on lood minu ja minu sees kasvava pisikese eluga :D


Do you already know if you are expecting a boy or a girl?
Yes, we know already for quite a while and I think soon enough you'll get to know that as well ;)

Kas juba teate, mis soost beebi tulemas on?
Jah, juba mõnda aega teame ja arvatavasti saate ka teie küllaltki varsti teada ;)



Did you feel any symptoms before finding out that you are pregnant?
Actually no, I didn't have any symptoms, I just had an inner feeling that I should buy a pregnancy test and might get two stripes on it :) Luckily I haven't had any symptoms even after that, so first trimester doesn't have to always be annoying or bad, for me everything has gone very smoothly since the beginning.

Kas tundsid mingeid sümpomeid juba enne rasedusest teada saamist?
Ausalt öeldes ei tundnud ma midagi, lihtsalt oli selline kõhutunne, et võiks igaks juhuks osta rasedustesti. Õnneks ei ole mul siiani mingeid erilisi sümptomeid tekkinud, kõik on algusest peale väga rahulikult ja pigem õudsalt rõõmsalt ja energiliselt kulgenud. Seega ei ole sellist reeglit, et näiteks esimene trimester alati kõigil raskelt, väsinult ja iiveldades möödub, nagu paljud arvavad.


Have you chosen a name for your baby?
Yep, we have!

Kas olete lapsele nime välja valinud?
Jep, oleme küll!


Do you prefer new stuff for your baby or used ones are fine also?
It really depends on a specific thing. We surely don't push away anything with disgust, it's rather sweet if we can use some of the baby things that have a special meaning. Second hand stores aren't really my thing and some stuff we wanted to have brand new for sure, but an example about clothes I think it's pretty cute if baby could wear a lovely dress from mummy's childhood or a favourite sweater of daddy's, depending on a gender then.

Kas te eelistate beebile uusi asju või sobivad ka kasutatud?
Täitsa oleneb asjast. Kindlasti ei lükka ma vastikusega midagi kõrvale, pigem on just armas, kui saan lapse tarbeks kasutada mõnda erilist ja tähendusega asjakest. Kaltsukates ma küll ei käi ja mõned suuremad asjad tahtsime kindlasti uued osta, aga näiteks riiete osas on minu arvates eriti armas, kui beebi saab vastavalt oma soole kanda kas või enda emmest või issist kõrvale pandud lemmikut kleidikest või vahvat kampsunit.


How did you tell about your pregnancy to your husband and how did he react?
I told Archi that I have this suspicious feeling and maybe we should buy a pregnancy test and however there was nothing sure to wait for, Archi was already confirmed that he's going to become a papa soon and he got so excited and proud of our little poppy seed without even knowing yet if there's really a reason already :D Anyways, I was never hiding anything from my husband until I was confirmed myself that there's a reason to celebrate already because I think it would have been pretty unfair towards him and I would be quite disappointed if he kept something so big from me, so he was at home with me while I took the test, waiting impatiently there two cheerful stripes that appeared basically straight away and oh my Goddd, his reaction was truly priceless :D Haha! It still makes me laugh how he was jumping around and doing some funny moves until these first happy tears came to both of our eyes :) Geez, we're pregnant!!!!!

Kuidas teatasid oma abikaasale rasedusest? Kuidas ta reageeris?
Ütlesin Archile, et mul on selline kahtlane tunne, et peaks rasedustesti koju tooma ja kuigi mingit kindlat vastust oodata ei olnud, oli Archi täiesti kindel, et tema saab nüüd isaks ja oli jube uhke väikese mooniseemne üle teadmata, kas ikka tegelikult ka põhjust juba on :D Ühesõnaga Archi eest ma midagi ei varjanud ega ei tahtnud nii suurt ja tähtsat asja ka tema eest saladuses hoida kuni ise kindlat vastust juba tean vms, minu arvates on see ikka mõlema vanema asi ja mina oleksin küll äärmiselt pettunud, kui tema minu eest midagi nii suurt varjaks, seega oli ta testi tegemise ajal minuga koos kodus ja kannatamatult ootas triipe, mis peaaegu kohe testiribale ilmusid ja no see reaktsioon, mis seal tuli... :D Haha! Siiamaani ajab see nii naerma - selline õudsalt siiras lapselik rõõm, ta lausa hüppas ja kargas ja tegi igasugu naljakaid liigutusi kuni need esimesed õnnepisarad mõlema silmadesse jõudsid :) Yayy, me ootame last!!!!!


Are you planning to name your baby with one name? Do you get any inspiration from your grandparents' names?
Our little baby will most probably have two names as it's kind of a tradition in my family and it would be lovely to continue that way. The middle name will also be a baptising name. We have totally discussed the option to give our child a middle name after one of the ancestors, but let's see once the baby is already with us. This kind of names that we both like are fortunately found in my fan and also in Archil's. But... We for sure want to choose the name that is more international, the name that sounds good in both countries and is easy to pronounce and write for both cultures and of course, also for the child.

Kas plaanite lapsele panna ühe nime? Kas võtate nime valimisel šnitti vanavanemate nimedest?
Ilmselt saab meie beebsul olema kaks nime, sest minu peres on nii kombeks ja oleks tore traditsiooni jätkata. Keskmine nimi saaks küll tõenäoliselt olema ristinimi. Oleme seda varianti täitsa kaalunud, et paneks lapsele oma eelkäijate järgi just selle keskmise nime, aga eks paistab, kuidas sellega lõpuks jääb. Selliseid nimesid, mis meile mõlemale meeldivad, leidub õnneks nii Archi kui minu suguvõsas, aga tahame tegelikult natuke rahvusvahelisemat nime ehk sellist nime, mis kõlab hästi mõlemas riigis ja on mõlema kultuuri jaoks lihtne hääldada, kirjutada jne.


Are you planning on taking pregnancy photos of you and later on photos of a newborn? Who are you planning to have as your photographer?
We tend to capture loads of our lives though photo- and video camera, but if they ever end up on my blog is already a different question :) I actually already have some pregnancy photos, but probably we'll have some special shoots also in the summer as we'd like to have photos of us together as well not only of me with my belly alone. There's nothing definite yet, but only a couple of days ago I got pretty interesting offer. Same story regarding the photoshoot with a newborn baby - we surely will make many photos on our own, but I think it'd be pretty sweet to capture some moments of all three of us.

Kas plaanite rasedapilte lasta endast ja hiljem vastsündinud beebist teha? Kellel plaanite pilte lasta teha?
Meil on tegelikult kombeks üsna palju oma elust foto- ja videosilma läbi jäädvustada, iseasi, kas tulemus ka siia blogisse jõuab :) Rasedapilte on mul veidi ikka juba kogunenud kaa, aga ilmselt tuleb suvel ka paar sellist spetsiaalset sessiooni eraldi fotograafiga, sest tahaks ikka kõik koos pilte kaa, mitte ainult mina üksi rasedana. Midagi kindlat veel paigas pole, aga alles paar päeva tagasi sain näiteks päris huvitava pakkumise. Sama lugu on vastsündinu piltidega - kindlasti teeme ise palju pilte, aga täitsa armas oleks ka üks sessioon korraldada, kus juba kolmekesi jäädvustatud saame.


Did you try getting pregnant for months or it came naturally? (I hope it's not too personal question, but I've tried myself getting pregnant for months and I've read from forums that it takes years for some people. Scary anyways!)
Fortunately it happened very quickly and I can't really talk about months here. I'm super blessed that everything went so smoothly and without any stress. Of course I have heard these stories how some women get negative pregnancy tests every month over and over again and to be honest, I already prepared myself to take it very easy and I kind of supposed that it will take about a year also for us then, but oh no, happiness arrived in our yard basically immediately. I really hope that soon you and your partner can experience the same joy! I suggest to not look around in these forums too much and try to take it all as easy as possible. I'm sure you all know these stories how couples are stressing around for months trying to catch these two stripes until they take a break and sort of stop trying and pretty fast after that the woman gets pregnant! I think we can affect it a lot with our way of thinking. Wish you loads of luck and happiness anyways!

Kas proovisite kuid rasestuda või tuli see loomulikult? (Ma loodan, et see liiga isiklik küsimus pole, sest ise üritan juba kuid rasestuda ja olen foorumitest lugenud, et osadel võtab see aastaid aega. Päris hirmutav igatahes!)
Meil õnnestus õnnekombel üsna koheselt rasestuda ning kuudest on jutt kaugel. Olen väga tänulik, et kõik nii hõlpsasti ja stressivabalt läks. Olen isegi kuulnud neid lugusid, kuidas igal kuul uus negatiivne rasedustest tehakse ja ausalt öeldes nende juttude põhjal valmistasin ka ennast ette ja võtsin väga rahulikult, eeldasin, et kuskil aastake võib meil ikka minna, aga oh ei, meie õuele jõudis suur rõõm põhimõtteliselt kohe. Ma väga loodan, et varsti saate mehega seda imelist aega omal nahal kogeda ning seda õndsat rõõmutunnet kogeda! Soovitan foorumites võimalikult vähe aega veeta ja proovida võimalikult vähe stressata, palju on ju neid lugusid, kuidas paar muudkui stressab ja mõtleb üle kuni nö ''proovimisele'' tehakse paus sisse ja naine jääbki kohe lapseootele :) Eks palju ole meie endi peas ka kinni. Edu ja õnne teile igatahes!


Are you living in your own home or rental?
We live in our own home.

Kas elate oma kodus või üürite?
Meie elame täitsa oma kodus.


Do you regret getting pregnant so young?
Since I remember, I always wanted to become a young mother. All my relatives tell me stories of how they asked who I want to become when I grow up and if children usually were one day dreaming of becoming a singer, another day a doctor or a policeman, then my answer stayed the same through all years and I always told I wanted to become a mum. So no, I don't regret getting pregnant, I'm beyond happy and thrilled!

Kas kahetsed, et nii noorelt rasedaks jäid?
Seni kuni ma mäletan, olen alati tahtnud noorelt emaks saada. Kõik mu sugulased teavad lugusid, kuidas lastelt uuriti, et kelleks nad siis suurena saada tahavad ja kui enamasti taheti ühel päeval saada lauljaks ja teisel päeval arstiks või politseinikuks, siis minu vastus jäi läbi aastate vankumatuks ning kuulutasin kõigile, et mina tahan suurena saada emmeks. Niisiis ei, ma ei kahetse, et rasedaks jäin - vastupidi - olen rohkem kui õnnelik ja elevil!


When are you due?
I'm due in September, time just flies! I can't believe even myself that I've spent already half a year being pregnant! Un-beli-eva-ble!

Millal sul tähtaeg on?
Tähtaeg on septembris, aeg lihtsalt lendab! Ma ei suuda isegi uskuda, et olen juba pool aastat rase olnud! Us-ku-ma-tu!

CORAL PINK VALENTINO


As sun happily keeps shining around, I just must bring some coral summer vibes also to the blog. Today's post is written in collaboration with designer fashion online store elvogue.com. If you haven't read the previous articles yet, I've written about them also here and here. As elvogue.com has their own blog as well, I thought to spice up this little outfit post with their own lovely words! 

Elvogue.com has written the following: ''We had the pleasure of welcoming one of the most feminine woman who swears by heels and dresses only. We sure do agree with that! She had the chance to pick out three different looks from elvogue.com webstore which were all photographed by our own Kais Tolmats and the styles were finished with a little polishing by our stylish Kristi Ojasaar. To make all the looks shine a bit brigher, Makeup Artist Aira Buinenko worked her magic on her.
To not keep you wondering any longer, the amazing lady was of course the talented beauty and lifestyle blogger Emilia Elizabeth Chochia!'' 

My heart was just melting while reading these lines! The team of elvogue.com is just the sweetest and friendliest, not to mention the awesome selection of clothes they offer - so a little bit of the outfit I chose to wear: ''As mentioned, she is the absolute queen of heels and dresses, which gave her a chance to create the most womanly looks possible by picking out her favourite bits and pieces from our webstore.
For the first look, that just screams of spring colours, Emilia chose to wear a flowy Red Valentino dress, that is perfect for a classy everyday office look and also quickly customizable into a heavenly evening look for a night out in a restaurant by adding some additional details – for example a small yet powerful Burberry crossbody. She paired the dress with some classics with which you can never go wrong – the black Louis Vuitton heels were a perfect match with the little bow on the dress.''
