Return of My Old Favourite (+ more ways to enter the giveaway)

Hey babes,

I was supposed to post this a day ago, but rearranging the apartment kinda took all my time :D

Today, we were picking up some friends from the railway station, and I tried to dress nicely even though I didn't (after all) have any time to do my hair. I blame that completely on sewing, it took more time than I thought... :D

We were a bit early in the station, so I thought I'd get some photos so that I could make a decent post for you guys. ;) This is very casual, not even having proper accessories. (yep, I was indeed cleaning again today...)

Outfit of the Day

"always stay positive" :D

Does somebody have any clue what I was explaining here?

...neither do I.

Tried to get a good pic from the make-up, but that didn't quite work out for me... :D

Jacket: H&M, Top: H&M, Jeans: Auposen (Fiorella), Boots: Kenkä Cosmos, Bag: Tunnelin kenkä (= Tunnel's Shoe), Scarf: made by me.

Those jeans... <3 I totally love, love, love them. They're age-old, have been repaired more times than I dare to admit, but they still rock my world. My lucky jeans, my "full confidence" jeans. I always feel pretty wearing these, no matter how many times they've been fixed. As long as they somehow stay in one piece, I'm wearing them. :)

Apart from the jeans, I was sewing these:

I finally found great tablecloth fabrics, they're as close to perfection as I can get at the moment. I made four tablecloths, and I try to get some photos of how they look as soon as I can. :)

Then, something that would've gone to yesterday's post (if I'd written one):

Manicure of the Day

I was trying this cool three-coloured manicure on my nails. You'll see from the pics it was the first time ever I made it, but the funny thing is, that the first nail I painted came out perfectly. The others... not so much. But I hope this is inspiring even though my skills aren't that impressive yet.

Photobucket


Step 1: Take straight manicure tapes (one for each nail), and apply them on nails. You can do it straight, or the way I did it, which to me looks cooler. Apply grey polish (I used a matte shade from Depend) to the cuticle side.

Photobucket


Step 2: Take the tapes off. Apply a yellow nail polish (again using Depend, it's a neon yellow) to the rest of the nail.

Photobucket


Step 3: Take a black nail polish with a thin brush, and apply a thin black line to the meeting edge of the other two colours.


The result should look like this (mine was so much messier, but I trust you to know how to do this better :D) It might be recommendable to apply two coats of the two lighter colours, so that they come off more vibrante. Try it out, it's cool.

Lastly, a little thing concerning the necklace giveaway that's on still few days.

There's a couple of ways you can do to get an extra entry to the giveaway:

1. Follow me on Twitter (silvertigo).
2. Tweet about this giveaway.
3. Follow (er... like) this blog on Facebook.  (Link is easily found at the bottom of the blog)
4, Mention this giveaway on your blog post. 

All the entries should be submitted to the original giveaway post (link above), so if you do any of these, let me know by commenting to the giveaway post (and please leave a link/your FB/Twitter name so I can check the entries ;). You can do them all, they all are their own entries, each counts as one.

There's still plenty of time until Tuesday, when the lucky winner will be chosen at random. The giveaway is open internationally, since the gift can easily be sent anywhere without too heavy postal costs. :)

So enter, tell your friends about it, and have them enter too!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
