It seems you’ll be having some more vuvuzela for this WC! Well done, Adriana! You may be rightfully proud, your team did well!

Awww, thank you so much sweetie! :D Sends a big kiss and a hug as we did all night last night. :)

I can’t stand it Ghana lost. I’ve (sort of) watched the last part of that game on a big screen in down town when partying. I would have loved it that at least one team of the continent Africa would have make it to the semi-finals. As I’ve been told Ghana were better and the Uruguay team “stole” the game. :(
I just get off the laptop to listen to start of Argentina – Germany. Olalala, I root for Argentina.
The teams show now banters before the match starts: “Stop Racism” plus they do a little speech. So many teams looks so mixed. Good!
OMG, match just started and Germany scored…..Maradona’s face…..oh, noooo……back to fashion though many football players are faces of ad-campaigns right? ;)

(Yes, football = soccer. Soccer is not wrong! So!)

Sorry, sorry this is a fashion blog: these girls are so gorgeous but isn’t lovely Alek not photoshopped a tad too thin? She doesn’t need that at all!!

All these models are fabulous but Alek shows what the difference between a model & a supermodel is!

It’s ‘football’ if you are European. It’s ‘soccer’ if you are American or Australasian.(Possibly if you are Canadian too?) I grew up calling it soccer and so that’s the word I use. No one can say that the word “soccer” wrong. It depends where you are from.

cc, I know that of course. In my own language it’s “voetbal” sounds more like football. Canada? I miss Ellington now to help me out about Canada. :( The English say football too. Further, soccer is not the same too Americans as a an important sport as it is for us Europeans or South-Americans. Saying soccer is wrong is J/K… you must be an American. :) FIFA = Fédération Internationale de Football Association. Ja,ja..:)

Back on topic: I still think beautiful Alek looks too thin photoshopped.

cc: I apologise for being so stubborn Dutch……you guys say soccer but wouldn’t it be nice if we all used the same names/terms? :)
