I Love Me 2013

Hi everyone!

I hope you've all had a nice weekend ♥

So, yesterday, I went to visit the I Love Me 2013 fair in Helsinki, Finland. The fair contained fashion, beauty, health, and jewelry & watch - meaning, there was pretty much anything possible. My fiance was unlucky enough to have to come along with me there, but he admitted later that it wasn't as bad as he had thought.

Anyhow, I don't have that amazing pics from the fair as I kinda focused on not getting stepped on (as I'm such a dwarf, lol) but in case you want to see more coverage, you should definitely check out blogs by the official I Love Me bloggers, like for example Anna ♥ you, KLIPSIworld, Erica C., or Ina's lifestyle.

What I did try to photograph more, though, was the distribution of prizes on Bodypainting Finnish Champion contest. We had seen these painted model walking around the place the whole afternoon, so when we noticed we could make it to the prize event, we went for it. Sorry if the pics are a bit blurry, I made the idiot choice to try and take photos from the audience when I should've taken a seat from the front row and so on... Well, I know that the next time.

This model was showing the UV paint on her look.

I really liked the corset pattern there, though the whole thing was a little too much.

I seriously need a lesson or two about taking pics of moving things. Oh well.

Giving prizes for the top 3.

And here, the three best creations according to the judges. The theme was "renaissance of colors", and the creations really were colorful, and pretty nicely done. That's actually something I'd like to try someday. I mean, it looks so much fun!

After this, we went to see little more. Now, the place was preparing to shut down for the day, so we could have a better look around as there weren't as much people everywhere. I feel like a bad blogger as I didn't take more photos, but I was more feeling out the stuff, trends and such so I kinda focused more on that.

One of the things that really got my attention were these super adorable rubber boots. Wouldn't these be the best for the rainy Autumn days?

Getting some inspiration for my own future wedding ;)

A kick-ass dress, I totally loved this ♥

So that's all the pictures I have from the fair, I'm sorry there's only so little of them. The fair was amazing place to go, with so, so much to see, and one of the best parts was that I got to meet the lovely fellow blogger girlie Kertu face to face for the first time.

Before heading home, we sat down on Britannia for a bite. I chose Chevre Chicken, which was totally amazing. The chicken breast was covered with nachos, which to me is probably is the best thing ever.

Now, lastly, I want to share my outfit for the event with you.

I know it's a bit chilly already here, but I couldn't resist wearing this pretty little white dress for the occasion. The styling was built more or less around the boots as they are probably the most comfy pair of boots I own this moment, so they were the obvious choice for the event.

So, a simple little look, probably one of the last ones showing any legs this year, as the weather is getting so cold. (Get ready to be bored with my jeans and knits, haha.)

But, what do you guys think about this look? ♥

Now, I gotta go get some sleep, I have so much to do tomorrow! But I try to be back soon with another post. ;)

Have a lovely day!

Blog ya later,

xoxo

    1. It was so colorful, and so fun! I would love that red one as my wedding dress, but that's probably too far-fetched, haha. Thank you so much, dear! ♥
