So let's stay in, let the sofa be our car Let's stay in, let the TV be our stars I found my dancing shoes but they don't fit All the bright lights do

So yesterday evening was the Bloc Party-consert and it was absolutely fantastic. It truly exceeded all my expectations. It was truly worth of waiting to see them play live for 4 years.
Kele Okereke ( the lead singer) had a such an huge presence in the show. Furthermore the support band Delphic (from UK too) was fantastic first the reminded me a lot of Muse but the last songs were more combination of rock and electronic ( like Cut Copy).

The consert was amazing. Bloc Part sounds so much better in live. The lead singer Kele Okereke was really charismatic and rousing. The band started strongly by playing One Month off. After playing one and half hours long set,two encores,Kele breaking one guitar and sharing some love with some of the bands managers I have to say the show was really entertaining.

After the great concert me and one of my friend went to the after party which was held in Virgin Oil Co. Its this bar,restaurant, club place where I haven´t actually been before.
First time in Finland i felt really comfortable in bar. The music was excacly what I love great dj mixes of great artist like MGMT,Cut Copy, Hot Chip,The Ting Tings,Daft Punk and so on. So pretty much the whole night I spent dancing with Lilli on the dancefloor. We had really groovy moves and actually some guy came to ask if we had somekind of dance battle going on:D Not exactly! Anyways the lead singer of Bloc Party, Kele Okereke came to DJ for a couple of hours.
He seemed so different in the club, a little bit shy I would say! Anyways he played also some really good music. I still can´t get over how great last night really was.
I love,love, love live music, hanging out with good people and dancing all night long! I absolutely loved to dance with my comfy Converse sneaksers. First time that I didn´t were highheels in a bar. Damn I felt so much more comfortable and I really got to be in my own element last night!
So here comes couple of not-so-sharp pictures.

Kele Okereke ( the lead singer) playing. He always has such a great and groovy t-shirts!

Me and my friend Lilli after the consert. Exhausted but extrenely happy. Love the red face and the sweaty look. Try jumping/dancing around for couple of hours. I survived even when people twise the size as me kept bumping in to me! Well it was really crowded.

Kele Okereke DJ:ing!

Me in the Virginia Oil Co. bathroom. Not the best picture but pretty much how I looked the howl night:D

What are you holding out for? What's always in the way? Why so damn absent-minded? Why so scared of romance?

Today was pretty much a normal day. I went to school to study math for couple of hours and after that I went to library to study more. Now 8 hours later I am very exhausted and only thing that I am gonna read is the new Elle UK.
Later today ( actually after midnight) I am gonna go and pick-up my daddy and little sisters from the airport. They´ve been in Thailand for a week so I am really excited to see them. I missed them a lot even when I had absolutely fabulous time with my mom& my school books! Seriously I had heaps of fun! Tomorrow I will show you all my presents and stuff that I´ve bought last week:)

P.S: Is anyone else going to see Bloc Party this week in Helsinki?

Its so much better When everyone is in Are you in?

81th Oscar gala was held last night in Hollywood. Me and my big sister have had this tradition for years that we wake up in the middle of the night to watch the gala. This year we wrote down all our prediction of who is going to win what and I have to say I was pretty good at guessing which movies, actors,actresses will get the Oscar award. What did you think of the winners?
I personally am very happy that Slumdog Millionere won 8 oscars and that Sean Penn and Kate Winslet won the best leading role awards!

Here are some of the best gowns from the Redcarpet:

Angelina Jolie wearing Elie Saab gown

Anne Hathaway in Armani Prive gown

Marisa Tomei in gorgeous Versace gown

Evan Rachel Wood on the red carpet wearing Elie Saab.

Help, I have done it again I have been here many times before Hurt myself again today And, the worst part is there's no-one else to blame

I know that in the blog world everybody is talking about the fall 2009 collection but for me and the other peoples spring/ summer are the upcoming seasons. So I made these couple collages of pieces that I will/would like to wear.

Basic black & white combination is something that I never get sick of.
For sure this spring I am going to wear my Hugo Boss blazer a lot! ( bought it last summer)

I actually have bought my jumpsuit already. I am sure its going to be something that I will wear a lot. The other pieces that I collected to this collage are something ( among others) that are in my shopping list.
-black leather jacket
-Comfy ballerinas
- black satchel bag
- RayBan sunnies

This definitely my favorite look for this spring/ summer. In a way this outfit has already become my very own uniform!:)

I kind of fallen in love with feathers! Can´t help it. Well this is a feather dress that I almost bought from Reiss for my graduation. Anyways I can´t wait for my little hunt to find my perfect graduation dress. I am sure its going to be lot of fun! ( NYC trip is only a month away)

Nude has always been one of my favorite colour. I am sure its something that all Scandinavians have in common. Anyways nude is definitely one of the it colors of the next season. I spotted that Tiger Of Sweden has lot of nude colour in their newest collection if you are interested of buying nude quality pieces.

How come no-one told me All throughout history The loneliest people Were the ones who always spoke the truth

The sun is shinning a bit longer nowadays but still I find myself longing after summer more and more (am I the only one ?:)
Well today I spent pretty much the whole day resting and not studying for my exams.
Cause last night I went out with some of my friends. I had heaps of fun. First me,the birthday boys and one of the guys girlfriend went to a restaurant. Gosh I just love eating out! Afterward we went to this club " Cafe Opera" where our other friends joined us. I was the designated driver nevertheless this was the best night that I´ve had in a bar without drinking anything!
Today I just watched skins and went movies with my sister and mum. We saw the Milk and I have to say its the best movie I´ve seen so far. Sean Penn and James Franco did an excellent job. I will be very suprised if Sean Penn wont win an Oscar of this role.

Freddie and Effy

Like I earlier mentionde today I also watched the newest episode of the Skins.It has been my favorite tv-serie for a while now ! The season three started about a month ago and so far excellent! I just absolutely love how the each episode concentrates on a one character and everythings is seen from the certain characters point of view.

Here is a link if u wanna watch the first episode of the 3th season.

Instead of showing you guys the various photos of the New York fashion weeks amazing collection I decided to show you the cool street style spotted outside the Bryan Parks tents!
Personally I find this much more inspiring. To be honest I was a bit disappointed with most of the fall 2009 collection. Which one do you prefer runway´s or sidewalks?

No one likes to take a test Sometimes you know more is less Put your weight against the door Kick drum on the basement floor

This editorial is divine and somehow very brilliant. I absolutely love this whole cobrasnake/ Alice In Wonderland/goofy girls night-in theme! I am very inspired by this editorial. What do you think? Next time I go out I am definitely checking this editorial before deciding what to wear. Hmm maybe I should join my friends for a night out already tomorrow .... ;D
This week has been really something completely new. My sisters and daddy are in Thailand and I was left home to study for my matriculation exams. So that´s pretty much what I´ve done this whole week. I go to library 10 a.m and I leave from there about five o´clock! After these studying sessions I pretty much don´t have energy to do anything special. This is pretty much what my whole spring is going to be like. Something completely new and different:) How are you my dear readers? Anything new and special going on with you?
