Give Me A Break!

Hey sweeties,

How's your weekend? ♥

I originally planned to post on Friday, but my work/school kinda overwhelmed me so... I'm here now. ;)

So, I had an exam on Friday, and I feel it went okay - hopefully passing, that is. :D And after that, a work shift - then heading kind of straight to bed so that I got myself up on Saturday morning to get ready for Pori, once again. We were visiting our good friends, and besides hanging out, we headed to an ice-hockey game. What a great start for my week long break from school (which will be full of studying, but more on that later.)

My own team wasn't on the ice, so I cheered for the next best thing: My fiance´s favourite team, Porin Ässät. (And I had a make-up to match, as you will see later on this post...)

Here are some shots from the game, which aren't the best of quality, but I couldn't take the Sony inside the building without a press pass. (I assume.)

Little boys having a shoot-out on the first break. ♥

This little thingy was hovering on both breaks above the rink.

Photobucket

Zebras. :D (Yes, I know what they really are, but I call them that anyway.)

Photobucket

Hockey action. ;) 

I was too keen on cheering the team to bother taking photos, but I thought I'd take some to share here. That is because ice-hockey is bit of a passion for me, I do love the sport, and I can't have too much of a game analysis. I'm a bit freaky like that. :D

Of course, seeing a sports game requires an outfit to match, and even though I know it's all about the sport and nobody cares what I look like, I just can't go there without looking the best I can. I couldn't go without my hair and make-up, dressed like everyone/anyone else out there. I love it when I stand out a bit. (Attention whore? Me? No way.... - Just kidding.)

Vanity is my deathly sin, I know. That's something I can't help.

So, I put some thought into what to wear, and this is what I came up with:

Outfit of the day

Jacket: Mango
Faux fur hood: Seppälä
Shorts: Mango (+ DIY stud detail)
Top: H&M
Tights: Only
Boots: Tunnelin Kenkä
Bangles: Nelly.com
Necklace: Seppälä


It may not have been the most warm thing you can wear to a hockey game, but I felt comfortable and I loved the way it looked. And the little detail I created to the shorts is fun, don't you think?

What are your thoughts about this look?

Also, you might notice a little black shape close to my eye. It's something I drew with eyeliner in effort of being supportive for the home team:

Ace of Spades.

Of course, if you have followed my blog, you know I have an obsession with doing my nails and fitting them to a best way possible to some current theme. And as today was about hockey...

Manicure of the day

Photobucket

Ace of spades meet leopard. Not the most common combo, and maybe not the best, but... I had to try it to know :D (And, you're allowed to go crazy when watching hockey ;))

But when it comes to watching:

How many of you will be tuning in when the Oscars will be on now on Sunday?

I sure will, and I thought I'd log in to both Facebook and Twitter to keep up with all the thoughts. Who's with me? Please, someone, keep me awake, it's 3:30am here in Finland when the actual gala starts (of course the all-important red carpet starts long before). I'm determined to watch it as last year I was working through the night and missed it all. :P

But anyway, like I think I mentioned in the previous post, I'll be posting more extra stuff on the blog's FB page, and for example my gala feelings will be posted there rather than here in the blog. So if you're interested, tune in there, and on Twitter, and watch the show with me. ;)

Blog ya later, and enjoy the Oscars!

xoxo

Johanna

    1. Dian, you are so sweet! I think many other readers, too, love the manicure part the most ;)

      And well, it's a lot easier to do a perfect manicure when you have a stamping set. Like I have the Konad one. That's at least when you want a regular pattern. But otherwise, it's just practice, practice, and more practice. :D
