Paris Paris ♫ Day 2

Hello hello~~~ <3

In my last post I forgot to mention, when we was at the Angelic Pretty store, Maki and Asuka took many pictures and one of me is shown at the Angelic Pretty page :D Click on the picture see it (you have to scroll all the way down I'm at the very end xD)

Now on to Day 2!!!

On Sunday we visited the Japan Expo. Unfortunately this year was no interesting special guest for me there, so the only thing to do was looking at the stalls and maybe buy something. I was a bit disappointed this year because there were mostly the same stalls like last year, even at the same place! But I still had a great time with my friends which is most important, and Japan Expo is pretty cheap, only 14€, so no regrets :)

A new awesome stall was Lunieshop, they had cheap Chocomint stuff! But I already own sooo much Sweet Jewellery so I only bought 1 hairclip xD


Then we found an awesome Mameshiba x KyaryPamyuPamyu stall! Last year they also had a stall but I didn' really saw it because it was directly next to 6%dokidoki and there were so many people I had no chance to get in the near of it ^^''' They had a huge Mameshipamyupamyu, they said it was in behalf of Kyary there because she couldn't come herself xD

Loopy with the huuuuuge Mameshipamyupamyu ^-^
Me *chuuuuuu*
They also had posters with autographs (but not for sale T_T)


Then we also wanted so see the Kawaii.international stall! We are all huge fans of the show so we were really excited to see it, even if we couldn't really do anything there xD But we did a bit smalltalk with the producer of the show, and she was pleased to hear that also people in Germany know the show and watch it :)


This was a designer from Tokyo showing how to do DIY clothes, she also makes clothes for Kyary Pamyu Pamyu

This wall is painted by hand!!! We saw the artist drawing it.

There was also a small photo corner for taking pictures with Kawaii.i background :)

cute Himecookie ^-^

Then we also saw Marie from Kawaii.international! She went around and did interviews with some people for Kawaii.i. When we asked her for a picture, she also did an interview with us (but you could only see our outfits in the last episode of the show^^). In the interview she asked if we have any french friends and when we answered "No", she said she is our friend and hugged us :D Of course a bit joking but she is really super cute!!! And sooo beautiful!

In general there were many more stalls with cute jewellery and kawaii clothes, in one of them you could buy replicas for just 110€, what a bargain xDDD

In the afternoon we went back to Paris to go eat at a cool restaurant we saw the day before. It was all in true american 50ties style!



I had the "Favourite Burger" topped with egg, bacon, champignons & a Cherry Pepsi
Strawberry Milkshake from Himecookie (I was too full to order one after my burger xD)

The food was really delicious but the waitress was... slow... and discussed with us about 10 minutes because we wanted to split the bill but she didn't wanted T_T But it was still a nice restaurant xD
Here is the website if you are interested: Happy Days Diner

At midnight we visited the Eiffel tower. We sat down on the grass and waited until the Eiffel tower starts to glitter (which he does at night to every full hour). But unfortunatly it's not really comofortable there because every 2 minutes some strange guys come to you and want to sell you wine or cigarettes or other stupid stuff, and they don't go away until you said 10 times NO, GO AWAY >_<

many people were sitting in the grass
glitter time :D

Paris Paris ♫ Day 1

As background song please choose this one now xD



Today I want to write about my Paris trip which was 1 month ago :)

This time I travelled for 3 days with 3 friends: Ami, Loopy and Himecookie (they were also in Utrecht with me).

We had to get up really early at 5 am to take the train to Paris. Where I live we have a train directly connected to Paris with only 3 stops inbetween, so we need only 3.5 hours, and the train is really cheap, cheaper than travelling within Germany! I hope I find a new job soon where I earn more money and can travel more often to Paris :D

But now to my trip, when we arrived, we went directly to the hotel to change into Lolita clothes and then shopping! Last year I bought nothing in the brand stores except something small for friends, but this year I found something for me :D First we visited the Btssb shop!

Busy with shopping

I saw many pretty dresses and blouses but everything was too expensive or didn't fit ;_; But in the end I fullfilled my dream and bought an Usakumya-chan!

With my new purchase in front of holy Btssb xD

Then we went to Angelic Pretty! This year Maki & Asuka were also there :D (Really sad that AP Paris is now closed ;_____;) I made small presents for them, a postcard and german chocolate.

When I entered the store I was really in heaven! I think we spend 1 hour in the store, just looking at everything! I have to admit I was a bit nervous to give the presents to Maki & Asuka and I even thought about not giving the presents to them, because I had fear that they don't like it but in the end they were happy about it ^_^ Unfortunately they didn't had a big selection of dresses or items which I liked, but I found a pink blouse! I really wanted to buy a pink blouse during my Paris trip and it even was the only one in the whole store xD



Of course I also took a picture with Maki & Asuka:

It was really hot that day, over 30°C!!! But Maki & Asuka were wearing blouses with long arms and a wool cardigan!!! When we asked Maki if it isn't too hot she answered "Yes it is but I have to look perfect *laughed*" xD

We also met a really nice girl form the USA, she asked if she could come with us because she didn't knew anyone. We agreed and so we went back to Btssb and then to Princess Crepe!

Our whole group with the girl from USA <3

Even the shop staff wears Btssb!

I want to make a real photoshoot in that shop >_<

Then we went back to the hotel to change our clothes, drop our shopping stuff and get some food! After a little break we went out again to go to Laduree and the other 2 Lolita shops in Paris.

Laduree really have the BEST Macarons in the world, but also the most expensive xD But they are so delicious you have to try them and they are worth the money!


After this we wanted to visit the other 2 Lolita shops in Paris, giq'chaq and Harajuku. But giq'chaq was closed and Harajuku had only gothic stuff (besides a Moitie dress for 500€...).

Then it was already very late and we went back to the hotel. We had an amazing view over Paris and Sacre Coer from our hotel room!


Btw this is all the stuff I bought in the 3 days:
~ Angelic Pretty blouse
~ Angelic Pretty postcard + bunny button => free gifts for buying the blouse
~ Angelic Pretty cantonier for my Lady Rose (I bought it from Ami but it was in Paris so it counts xD)
~ Btssb Usakumya Bag
~ Sephora lipstick
~ Chocomint Sugar Heart hairclip
~ Mameshipamyupamyu plush (OMG it is so cute I swear, I played the whole day with it after I came back from Paris xD)
~ Barbie necklace


Thank you for reading~ ♫♫♫

"Growing up" in Lolita Fashion

Recently I updated my wishlist folder on Photobucket. I started it around 2 years ago and I always added new dresses to my wishlist but never deleted some. But a few days ago I did and I realized that my taste grew up. 1-2 years ago many dream dresses were OTT Sweet Lolita like Milky Planet, Sugary Carnival, Toy Parade, Toy Fantasy and Milky Chan. But now these dresses are to childish for me. I still like them but I feel to old in them.
My only childish dress I own is Little Bears Cafe. When I first got the dress, I had no problem with wearing it, but now I feel a bit uncomfortable in it. I have the fear that I look like an adult who wants to fit in a child dress, so I always do my hair and make-up in a way that I look younger when I wear the dress. But I think I will never sell this dress because I love the print too much, I sometimes just have to be really brave to wear it xD

Also I realized that prints and especially popular prints were a big deal for me. But now I look for more special dresses which not many other people have. Currently I'm searching for a dress which is just one color but still have many details like many ruffles, different laces, a special cut, many ribbons etc.
Ok I have to admit I bought 1 abslolutely popular dress which is Day Dream Carnival, but I always dreamed of a pony themed dress which doesn't look too childish and this dress looks pretty sweet-classic to me, exactly the way I like it right now :)

Dresses I love right now (of course all from Angelic Pretty xD)

Princess in love OP
Symphony Frill JSK
Victoria Princess OP
Lace Lady OP

Did some of you also experienced a recent change?
Thank you for reading,

Kawaii Weekend in Utrecht ~ Sunday Picknick

I didn't wrote something the last days because I'm designing a new layout for my blog... but it is so hard because I have absolutely no skills in graphic design >__< But I already changed the size of my blog so I can post bigger pictures, I hope you like it!

But now onto the last part of my Kawaii trip, the Sunday Picknick!
On Sunday was an official programm point where you could visit the castle and have a picknick, but to be honest it was too expensive for us so we went to the castle by ourselfs. We just joined the group during picknick :)

The castle was really beautiful and it had a pretty rose garden with a (fake) well in the middle. We didn't do much except taking a lot of pictures! I will show you my favourite ones:

A dutch girl said that all castles in the Netherlands are made of brown clincer like this!








Here you can see my hat better ~ It is selfmade ^-^

Here are the lovely outfits of my friends:

Evangeline

Ami

May

Yuki

Himecookie

Loopy

After a few hours we drove back to Germany because we were really tired! But all in all I really enjoyed the trip and I hope next year will be something like this again!

Thank you for reading,
Miuko~ <3
