What have you been up to this weekend? I dedicated myself for cooking (or rather, baking, see here) and watching movies. (Rango and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides)
Haven't really been dressing up too much, but tried out this - I'd say Japanese inspired - outfit, which was a little bit out of my usual comfort zone but still, I liked it. (And since it's under 10 degrees in here - Celsius, that is - this kinda raised more than few looks from other people...) I wore this yesterday for a shopping trip, when we went to look for some new shirts for my fiancé.
Oh, and sorry for the poor quality, I'm fixing the issue after Christmas, promise!! ;)
Outfit of the Day (Saturday):
(I laughed to that face... Like I was trying to be oh so smug or something :D)
(Happy with my new shoes!)
T-shirt: GinaTricot (it says "Let's Sushi", in case it's unclear to you), Shorts: VILA, Leggings: Pieces (Only), Legwarmers: Seppälä (sooo old), Shoes: Puma, Handbag: I believe it's H&M, but wouldn't swear on it..., Bangles: Nelly.com, Cupcake necklace: Accessorize, Pink pearls: my cousin's old ones.
I kinda tried to be creative, not a perfect ten maybe, but I really liked this outfit. (As did my fiancé, which is why I wore this :'D) The pink box featuring in there is the box of my new shoes. I found this gorgeous pair of wedges (light cognac colour) and I had to buy them despite of my account being very light right now. Well, Monday's a paycheck day.
Anyways, I've been keeping up the Halloween spirit here a little bit, baking cookies (just because I found the perfect recipe), planning foods for next weekend (we're having a sort of After Halloween/Fathers' Day thingy with my parents). Also, I painted my nails to fit the theme (as I didn't have any other way to dress up... Note to self: Next year, own party.)
Manicure of the Day
This manicure was inspired by the blog A Little Obsessed, written by the lovely Sabrina, who is one of my favourite beauty bloggers at the moment. She writes great reviews on beauty products and her advice have helped me a lot.
Anyways, inspired by her, these are my "Halloween nails"
First, apply two layers of orange nail polish (I used some cheap H&M polish, would normally choose a more expensive one, but... I kind of figured this out very last minute).
Then, apply one layer of black, crackling nail polish. (I used the IsaDora one, as I totally love all the polishes from them)
Now, as you can see, the outcome isn't too cute. But it's for Halloween, so... They're kinda cool for that. I mean, as they are all I have for a costume. I'm still getting rid of these as soon as I hit the "Publish post" button. ;)
But hey, how has your weekend been? Any cool places you've been to? Amazing people you've met?
As I said, my weekend was nice and relaxing, and today I went for a delicious dinner with my fiancé and his parents. We had a great time in our favourite restaurant, and now that I'm writing I wish I had taken pictures to share with you... I'll remember that the next time, lovelies!
But now, hitting few rounds of NHL12 with my man, so...
Blog ya later!
P.s. Is it just me, or do I mention food (in any way) unusually many times in this post?
