Lolita Blog Carnival: Things I Loli-fyed

Don't mention my absence, I'm perfectly aware of it. I've just been sick and crazy busy with job interviews and university and a whole bunch of other excuses ;-)

It's another Lolita Blog Carnival Friday and today's topic is "Things I loli-fyed". Since I am somewhat of a lifestyle Lolita, I made it a habit to get the most adorable version of the thing I need, for example, why would I get normal kitchen stuff if it could be pink? Right?

That's why I have a pink with white polka dots case for my kindle, a pink sparkly Hello Kitty bag for my old, ugly DS and Anglic Pretty stickers on my external harddrive ^-^

If you want to know more about all the stuff I loli-fyed, watch my video on the topic:

What are some things you loli-fyed in your life? Tell me in the comments below!

Day 8 – 10 songs that inspire you for lolita

I'm sorry but I have to rant about my computer for a minute.

I've been using Ubuntu for years now, I think I started with version 10.4"Lucid Lynx“ in 2010 and never had more than the usual view kinks that you just have to work with. Yesterday, after I updated to 13.10 "Saucy Salamander" a view weeks ago, all hell broke loose! Dropbox stopped working and I can't get it to run again. The dashboard broke and didn't show any applications even though I already fixed that. The keyboard switched from German to English just because to fuck with me.
Sooo many issues! I never had that many problems with Ubuntu and I can't go back to 12.04 or 12.10 without ripping my netbooks heart and soul out ;___; poor bebi!

Anywho, the next thing on my meme-list is "10 songs that inspire you for Lolita" and I'm sorry to disappoint you but songs don't really inspire me for Lolita. I need music to create but not to get dressed ^-^

However, I do have a special treat for you. My 2 good friends and I are going to see Depeche Mode this February and the Official Fan Club is putting together a slide-show of fan pictures, so we got together yesterday and got shooting :D

Keep in mind that my gimp-skills are very limited and, like I mentioned above, my computer is not cooperating with me right now but here you go! Our entry for the slide show:

Don't look at it too closely. I know every bit that is wrong with it but I don't have the skills or the patience to fix it. This is the original picture btw:

Looking at them side by side makes me cringe XD Oh well, it's fine, it's fine! With my skill set it turned out super.

Day 7 – 10 people who inspire your lolita style

Good evening!

Today's topic is one that I already covered a view weeks ago but for the sake of totality I am writing this blog post, just to link you back to the one that already exists. So here you go, if you haven't already read it: people who inspire me.

I found an old picture yesterday. It's from 2011 and was taken while I was in Paris. I'm not sure I ever shared it here, even though it's pretty hilarious!

That was a real fun holiday! Talking about holidays. Did you already start planning what you want to do this year, holiday-wise? Tell me in the comments below!

Lolita Blog Carnival: 3 prints in your favourite colourway!

It's Friday and you know what that means! Lolita Blog Carnival! YAY

Today topic is 3 prints in your favourite colourway.

One of my favourite prints arrived just a few days ago. On Monday actally. It's Angelic Pretty's "Ala Carte Tea Time". I got the black colourway even though my favourite is the white one. It was cheap on Closet Child, who can say no to that?

My second favourite is also by Angelic Pretty. It's the Candy Treat print in white. I'm not a fan of the series at all. I think all the colourways are ugly, especially the black one (Sorry if you own the black one, personal tastes differ and that's a good thing! I bet you look lovely in the dress.) but the white one is special because it looks like it's been dipped in blood. I'm not the only one who made that association btw XD

Last but not least is from Baby the stars shine bright. I owned the dress before but had to sell it because it was too tight around the boobs :( It's Gingham Rose Ribbon in pink. Especially the one piece stole my heart and I want to bring it back into my closet where it belongs!

What are 3 of your favourite prints? Tell me in the comments below!

As always I made a video as well so feel free to check that out if you like!

Day 6 – 10 things you can’t live without in lolita

How does a true Lolita know what day it is? It's the day after Closet Child update but it's not a weekend so it must be Thursday. Yeah, that actually went trough my mind this morning.

Today's topic could kind of be an instructional post for beginners. 10 things you should have because you can't live without them or something like that. Uh-huh. Sounds good.

  1. A good petticoat! Without a good base, you might as well don't wear it at all.
  2. Bloomers. I don't feel comfortable leaving the house without Bloomers on or even walking around my house XD
  3. The bestestes hairspray ever. Ever ever! It's the Forever Aloe Pro Set hair spray. It's a little on the expensive side, that's why I only use it on special occasions but it's so good! It holds curls like nothing else and your hair still feels soft. SO GOOD!

  4. Diamond lashes. I'm a little obsessed with diamond lashes. I currently have... 5 or 6 packages and still think that's not enough!
  5. For the winter: thermal underwear because it is getting damn cold outside. Not this winter but in general, of course ^-^ 
  6. For the summer: a parasol and fashionable fans.
  7. The 2nd hand market. Imagine Lolita without the 2nd hand market. Dresses, once sold out, forever lost and unreachable. What a nightmare!
  8. Wigs because sometimes I just don't feel like putting any effort into my hair.
  9. Bow clips for when you need to add that extra oomph!
  10. That bralette thing that shrinks my boobs. It's horrible, gives no support, no nice shape, practically useless unless I want to go down a cup size. It will do that!
Well, those are my 10 things I can't and don't want to live without. Leave me your list in the comments below! You know, I love reading comments :D

Lolita Wardrobe Post 2014


We are skipping one day of the challenge to take a look at my wardrobe ^-^ Like last year I made a video, showcasing what's currently in my closet. It was a lot of work! It took me about 5 hours of filming and another 9 hours to edit. And it almost made me throw up... you will see why!

Let me tell you something! I started with the head dresses. Sitting on my office chair I put on one alice band after another and I span round and round and round in the same direction and after the 5th bow change I had to get up and lay on the floor because I almost vomited all over myself XD AND I WASN'T EVEN HALF DONE!... Originally I planned on filming all in one take but I had to space it out to two days because after I forced myself to finish up the dresses I was so done.

Filming the socks felt like a work-out. I was lying on my back for 40 minutes and hold my feet in the air. That can get really exhausting after a while ^-^ 

Did you do a wardrobe post/video this year? Leave me the link in the comments below. I would love to see it. And as a bonus jonas a gif of my awkward dancing!

Day 5 – 10 items from your wishlist

Yes, I know. Let's not talk about it...

Todays topic is 10 items from your wishlist and I already told you that I don't like to make wishlists because it jinxes things. However for the sake of this meme I will list some things I would like to own in the future...

  1. more blouses just in general because I don't have enough :(
  2. AatP - Dance of the black Cats JSK because I own the matching necklace
  3. AP - Happy (DAMN) Ice Cream... I've been looking for this dress forever -.-
  4. rings I actually like to wear
  5. the "brandwhore" necklace from Deerstalker Pictures

  6. all the dresses from Kamikaze Girls because, let's be honest, every Lolita wants a piece of that!
  7. a winter coat that fits me and is actually warm enough for Austrian winters
  8. Vivienne Westwood. Nuff said.
  9. a nice off white rose crown, like the one my friend borrowed my for the IW tea party. really should have kept that... -.-
  10. the white version of Ala Carte Tea Time JSK

I love how this GIF loops so perfectly! AWW YISSS!!

Currently I'm filming my wardrobe video for this year and I had this idea, that I want to spin. Unfortunately spinning makes me really sick. I almost threw up several times during filming. Not fun. But the video looks really good, so totally worth it <3 It will be up on Wednesday and I will post it here for everyone to see. YAY!
