I wasn't posting for ages, so sorry for that - I've had a very stressful time, which ended this week with me laying in bed sick from NORO-Virus. xD"
Anyways, I'm getting better now! Christmas spirit revives my stamina! ♥

♥ I just wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas, and very peaceful and unforgettable holidays! May you all eat a lot of nice christmas food and spend a wonderful time with family and friends! Be well and have a good time! ♥

The christmas cookies I was baking for my Honey! ^///^

I just have to end it up with some outfit photos, since they're laying around my PC for so long time already! =(
I feel guilty letting them collect dust... xD

Outfit for the Christmas Party (Weihnachtsfeier) of my wardTaken after the party... I look so wasted. Sorry to abuse your eyes. xD"
I was kinda satisfied with the outfit, it turned out as fluffy and wintery as I wanted!
Goal for 2012: Loosing at least 5kg of weigt. NORO-Virus already killed 2kg, so at least 3kg to go! XD

Crappy close-up...
...obviously taken in front of my bathroom mirror. xD"
My photos are getting worse with every post... I should really do something about that in 2012. xD"
I was inspired by a hairstyle from december Ageha, but it was so hard to re-style it with my prisila hairpieces. I'm not 100% satisfied with it, therefore. =(

Outfit from weeks ago...
I wanted to try out my new prisila hairfalls, so I came up with this... in the end, I didn't like it at all. It looks way too childish for me - I will only wear this hairstyle with Lolita from now on. =(
The rest of the outfit was pretty okay, I think.
Sorry for me bending awkwardly forward. xD"

Obligatory blurry webcam shot taken at the same day! xD

Enjoy your Christmas Holidays! ♥

It´s such a sweet, sweet life, isn´t it?

Princess day out ♥

A while ago I got an invitation from lovely Shoi, she asked me out for a Lolita meetup! So we went there last Saturday, and it was GORGEOUS ♥

Shoi came over to my appartment, and we dolled up together. Even just getting dressed was so much fun with her, she's such a sweet girl! After we faced the wig disaster and the eyelash catastrophy (lol - I was so clumsy that day, and couldn't really help Shoi out with anything. So sorry girl, next time I'll take better care of you!), we finished the process in a record-breaking time of 1 1/2 hours, gosh! O__O I usually need almost twice that time!

Well, we were terribly late anyways, and almost missed the train. lol
Thanks to my friend (not allowed to mention his name, sorry. ;D) and his FURIOUS driving style, we still made it! x3

At the main station, we met up with all the other Lolitas - they were all so cute and nice! ;__; We never met before, but they were so kind and heartwarming - I felt so comfortable immediately! ♥ (I didn't get the permission for posting their photos here yet, so I'll only show photos of Shoi and me)

We went to the toy museum together, which was pretty small, but yet very interesting!

Barbies ancestors!
Those dolls were so lovely! *__*
Barbies face and appearance changed so much over the years, and look at the skintones! I never saw a pale Barbie before. O__O
My favorite is the elegant doll in the lowest row, 3rd counted starting from the right side ♥

Haha, I'm such a freak for those films. xD
So I really loved this part of the museum a lot!

Teddy graveyard?! o__o"
Scary? Then you better skip the photo below this sentence...

Jigsaw (from "Saw" movie) doesn't exist, Jigsaw doesn't exist... >/////<

After we finished our tour at the museum, Shoi and me dragged the others to get some Bubble Tea! x3
It was my first real Bubble tea, I was so excited! O////O

Cute design cup!
I had green tea with Lychee and Coconut boba!
It was so GOOD! I´m addicted now ♥

In front of the Bubble Tea store
My wig is a bit messy, sorry. o__o" But Shoi looks so cute in her Milky-chan! :´D
The owner of that store was really cute and friendly! He's going to open a bigger store soon, good luck! Be sure I'll be one of your customers in the future, your bubble tea is gorgeous! ♥

It was kinda bad decision to get a cold Bubble Tea in the middle of November... I was freezing like hell after that. xD"
So I really appreciated that the others wanted to go to a cute Café to grab a bite!

Aaaah, some warm tea! :´D
Rooibos Strawberry Cream ♥

The Café was super cute! I'm a bit sad I didn't take any photos of the interior except of...

The restroom! xD"
But hey. That's EPIC, isn't it? x3
Those toilets are so Lolita ♥

Shoi also managed to take this super sweet photo of us at the restroom!
Ahhhw, thanks Honey! I'm always looking horrible on photos, but once you hold the camera, every photo does turn out well! :´D
As you can see, I was going for a Hime/Princess themed outfit. Shoi was pulling off the Sweet Lolita style so well! ♥

Outfit Shot, taken in front of a door with attached mirror at the Café
Derpy Pose. Sorry for that. <.<
Outfit Rundown:
OP: Angelic Pretty "Rose Toilette"
Blouse: Bodyline
Headpiece: Angelic Pretty "Lady Rose" (I attached a rose to it)
Socks: Angelic Pretty
Shoes: Secret Shop
Anything else: Offbrand

After we had a really nice chat at the Café, it got really dark outside. It was time to go home after all. =(
The other Lolitas and our single Dandy were so nice to guide us back to the main station - thank you so much, without you we would have gotten lost FOREVER! xD"
It was really sad to split up from this lovely group of people, the whole day went by so fast! I'm very thankful to all of you, you treated us so heartwarming and kind - I so wish we can meet again soon! Thanks for everything!

So we took the train back home...
...The sad shoe shot we took while sitting in the train. xD"
Next time I'll remember to take one when we're still a GROUP. xD"

As we arrived back at our town, we visited Shoi's workplace - a kinda department store - because she really wanted to show off and explain to her workmates what Lolita is.
The guys there were freakin' scared of my contact lenses, one of them even called me "Vampire". <.< Dude, seriously. That´s no way to treat a princess! xD
After taking a load of photos there, we called it a day and went home. =)

Last but not least ~ List of words we got called after:
Wedding party
Theatre group
Event group
Sailor Moon (?! I don't even... xD")

Positive reaction: 35%
Negative reaction: 10%
Neutral reaction: 55%

Haha, it was a really fun day - and so relaxing after I was working hard all week long! x3

But no time for taking a break now, I just wanted to bring up this post before I forget about it completely. I'll be on a hiatus until end of this week, until the big school party we (the students council) are preparing has sucessfully ended! ;)
Plz bear with me until then! ;)

Be well and have a good time! =D

It´s such a sweet, sweet life, isn´t it?

November is busy. x__X

Hey princesses and princes, hope you're all doing well! Getting ready for christmas already? ;)

School and life keeps me quite busy these days!

I've become member of the students council, which means some extra work from time to time... and since there'll be a big welcome party for the junior students on the last weekend of this month, work doubled for me. x__X
I'm responsible for the decoration, which means a lot of shopping, crafting, and hands full of sticky glue and glitter... looks quite fancy. I mean... the decoration AND my hands. xD"

My driving teacher keeps on pronouncing that I'm the most EPIC FAIL of driver PERIOD. Thanks Robert, you keep me motivated every day. xD"
To describe my style of driving... no wait. There's no word that can do my horrible driving style justice. I'm serious. And ashamed. xD"
I'm just so scared of EVERYTHING while driving. If there's a cyclist 30m ahead of me, I already start panicking. (cyclist = EVIL. Doesn't follow any international traffic rules NOR human self-conception.) I also HATE highways. Mostly because of the trucks everywhere, and my disability of passing them. (My last passing maneuver took 2 minutes - that's at least how I felt. And that stupid truck wasn't even that long! When i finally reached the driving cab of the truck, the driver was staring down into the car, laughing his ass off. So did my driving teacher, thanks Robert! xD")
If everything goes on like this, I might get my license 2013. That's why my driving teacher forced me to take at least 2 practical and 2 theoretical lessons per week. xD"
Well, keeps me quite busy and on a constantly low budget - but I think it's worth it.
2013... never ever. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! xD

I also got invited to a lolita meetup this Saturday, which I'm so looking forward to! But on the other hand... it leaves me with the problem that pretty much every girl has in such a situation.
I mean... not really. There´s a fine selection of lolita wardrobe in my closet, but... I want something new, an new coordination of my lolita wardrobe!
Which leads me to the next problem. The last weeks when I had some time left, I was mostly focussing on improving my Gal style, so that I can hopefully call myself proudly "Gyaru" by the next year (I still don't feel good enough yet). Seems I really lost my feeling (or maybe even the ability) for coordinating a decent lolita outfit. ;__;
Nya. I guess I'll be browsing "Daily Lolita" tomorrow during my school breaks, since that's hardly the only off time I can get the next few days. xD" This community does never fail to give me inspiration. Wish me luck. ;)

Oh yes, November is busy for me right now. So please bear with me if I can't write any comments,blog entrys, messages and such.
I'll be back around 1 1/2 weeks later. ;)

I'll leave some recent photos here! ;)I ruined it with my fail photoshop skills. ;__;
I actually tried a tutorial "how to apply glow on your skin", since I wanted beautifuly glow-y photos like Sakurinas... but as you can see, it turned out horribly.
And stupid me saved the changes on the original file, dammit. ;__; My BF said he can fix it (he´s a webdesigner and very capable of photoshop), but that'll take some time. Once I get the result, I'll post the photo here, too! Good luck with your rescue mission, Binny! xD"

I was wearing...
...a total of 4 (!) prisila hairpieces! lol
I tried to arrange it in sujimori style a bit, but the wig hair lost the shape quickly. I need new hairspray that can hold wig fiber, too. =( (I heard got2be is really good?)
New D.I.A cardigan, offbrand hairbow and necklace, choker from Gothic Lolita Princess (I told you I started off as an ita. lol ~ I cut off the plastic lace, now it makes a decent rokku gal choker I think! x3)

Before I went out, I decided to switch from my cardigan to my new Yumetenbo blouse.
It has got a swallowtail! :´D
Sorry for my weird pose...

OVK boots, ruffle skorts and blouse by Yumetenbo.

Close up to scare the *** out of you before you leave.
Wow. Princess Mimi lenses look creepy from this angle. xD"
That glow still looks missplaced, but at least it's not as UBER-shiny as on the other photos. =/

Even though I could improve my make-up recently (especially the eye make-up), I still feel so imperfect. I fail in the most simple things like applying blush or nose stripe, since I don't apply that on a daily basis. Hmmm, still way to go until I can call myself "Gyaru" one day. ^^"
But I'll keep going! =D

P.S.: If any of you have some nice photoshop "skin glow" tutorials for me, plz let me know! ;)
Be well alltogether! =D

It´s such a sweet, sweet life, isn´t it?

"At the age of six in a difficult childhood, I said I want to make every woman a princess. That was an escape from reality."

Harald GlööcklerLink

There are just a few western fashion designers that can catch my interest - Harald Glööckler is one of them. I`ll give you a little introduction about this guy, if you want more information plz check his homepage here:
Harald Glööckler / Pompöös

Harald Glöckler (he got his name corrected to "Glööckler" later his life) was born on 30th May 1965 in Maulbronn, a small city in the south of Germany. He's had a difficult childhood, with his mother dying in an accident way too early - when he was just 13 years old. It´s rumored that his father was the cause for the deadly accident.

Harald Glöckler got fascinated with fashion at the young age of six years, when he visited an exhibition of Otto Dix. Ever since this day, he practised using needle and thread, different fabrics, and crafting accessorys.

Later his life, he became a salesman in fashion industry - and soon started to modify the pieces for sale to his own taste. With a basic knowledge about the mechanism of fashion industry and his unique taste, he started his career in fashion world with his label "POMPÖÖS"
(pompous) - unmistakable thanks to his golden crown icon.

Starting off as a store owner, he soon was working with the biggest german TV shopping channels - and so gained a lot fame within a short period of time.
Nowadays he's like a shopping channel idol, selling his collections
(that now include clothes, jewelry, tablewear and the like) internationally - also in Japan, where he became pretty popular! (Some photos of that at the end of this entry!)

Mr. Glööckler has especially taken the heart of 50+ ladies by storm. His collections are fashionable, but still modest - and the most important fact: He does produce clothes in wearable sizes. "Not every woman can wear a size 36/S or below."

I really like this guy, because he's just too freaking eccentrically! I get the "mad genius" vibe from him, somehow. (I also still do like Novala Takemoto... don´t hate on me... xD")
And hey... I'm so into princessy theme and leo-print recently - how can I resist? xD"

When it comes to the clothes, I can hardly find anything I would wear - "Pompöös" is just not targeted at younger people. But sometimes it's possible to find little treasures, that just need some altering. More about that at the end of this entry. ;D
BUT! The rest of the "POMPÖÖS" collection is definately worth a look! Princessy theme anywhere, spiced up with some nice animal prints!

Let's take a look!

I hate rain in general, but with this baby... I won't mind going out. xD

That print remembers me of MA*RS, somehow! (It's too vibrant for Jesus Diamante, so I would rather say MA*RS... do you agree? o.O)

TIGER DISHESReally nice, but would be even better with some more bling bling I think! =)

Now THAT is glamour! *__*
The powder case even has got some gemstones on it!

Leo print, leather, and bling bling... I so want one! >///<
And again, the crown label - show's up pretty much everywhere in "POMPÖÖS" collections. There's nothing more princessy then a crown. ♥

The Glööckler himself. xD
And two of his designs - I especially love the corset of the dress on the right side, it looks so elegant!
And damn, I love his boots! *__* So rockish!

Gorgeous coordinate! *__*
It's so flattering to a curvy figure, and those colors are simply HOT!
I guess Mr. Glööckler was inspired by japanese traditional clothes... The make-up, hair and kind-of-obi-belt gives me a strong Kimono vibe!

Some photos of Mr. Glööckler in Japan...

He was selling necklaces that day, if I got it right. xD

Hard to decide who's most fashionable. XD
My vote goes for Gyaruo on Mr. Glööcklers right side.

GAL TIME!The girl on the left side is so cuuuute! >///<

One more I would love to show you...
HARALD GLÖÖCKLER FOR PETA"Animals wear fur, People wear fashion."
Mr. Glööckler is standing against the use of fur - his creations feature high quality fake fur.
That photo... so... AWESOME. xD

My "POMPÖÖS" fake fur Poncho!
I bought it second hand for a ridiculous cheap price (I think the original price was at about 179€) - the leo look has taken my heart by storm, I couldn't help it. :´D
The fake fur has a quality I've never felt before on an imitation - it's super soft and so closely woven! Especially the cream colored parts of the Poncho are extremely well made!
A pity that I'll take it off... xD"

The Poncho is just too long for me, so I'll take the bottom row of cream fur off. I'll replace it with some black lace, I think. The collar has to go too, because I just don't like this shape of collar on me (it's a bit of peter pan collar style, no thanks. xD"). I have an old black fake fur stole that I'm planning to sew on. o.O

And with the leftover fur, Ill craft my Honey's christmas present! x3

Did you ever hear about this label, or maybe about the designer? I wonder how famous he actually is, since he got praised a lot recently. o.O
What do you think about his collection?

It´s such a sweet, sweet life, isn´t it?

Gal Magic ♥

Ageha is, and always will be, one of my favorite magazines when it comes to fashion and styling!
It´s also kinda my Sakurina style bible, since she´s featured so often. xD"

Even though they're disappointing me fashion-wise recently (I just can't see any new trends, everything seems to be... spring wear 2011 with some extra fur. XD"), Ageha does never fail to entertain me. There's always at least 20 pages that I find absolutely amazing!

This time... I found something that I really love to share with you!
Some of the most famous Ageha models were showing off their transformation from normal girl to Gyaru!

I often have the feeling that the japanese meaning of "Gyaru" differs a lot with the western meaning of "Gyaru".
Japanese Gal seems to be more about lifestyle, having fun and making the best out of your body and facial features. The Gals also seem to respect and support each other more, and treat each other way less discriminating.
I won't lump all of western Gals together, since most of them are really nice and friendly persons! I got to know so many helpful and inspiring persons, that motivate me to try hard to be one of them one day! But as we all know, there's also a lot of drama.

An example: There was one secret that left me a bit stunned a while ago. It's about cute Suzu, which is one of the sweetest german Gals in my opinion! (Ich hoffe es ist okay für dich, das ich das Secret hier poste! Wenn nicht, dann gib mir bitte bescheid, ich nehms sofort raus! >///< Es geht mir mehr um den Inhalt als um das Secret an sich)
Check the secret here
It's put in nice words, but still some kind of critics that I could never agree with.

Everybody's born with her/his own body and facial features - that's what makes a person unique.
In my opinion, Gyaru is about making the best out of your body and face.
No matter if you're a bit chubby, your boobs are small, you've got bad skin, or you've got strawy looking hair. Everybody can do it well, as long as you put enough effort in it!

I have a lot of birthmarks on my face and body. My lips are very thin, especially my upper one. I have wonky, X shaped legs. I'm definately not skinny, I'm more like... average, tend to be on the chubby side.
Nobody's perfect, but all those flaws actually keep me aiming for the perfect appearance - which is for me, Gyaru. I'm trying hard to make the best out of me. And most important, I (me, myself! xD) am happy with it.

Wow, enough beating around the bush - haha, I got so far away from what I actually wanted to say. xD
Everybody can be Gyaru, I believe. Without plastic surgery and the like!

(NOTE: I'm definately NOT perfectly against plastic surgery. I agree that it's sometimes the best way to cure deep mental issues and body disabilitys! But for me, there's a huge difference between "I want to get my lips done because of my fashion ideal!" and "I want to get breast implants because my left breast is cup A while the right side is a C".)

Enough of my blabla, up onto the pictures. ;)
Plz note: I don't know if some of those Gals have gotten plastic surgery before - and they're obviously photoshopped, even in the "before" photos. BUT you still get a big impression of their natural look without any Gal make-up and hair! ^^

I was really surprised that she looks like my classmate without all of her Gal make-up! So cute! xD
Her eyes get a way stronger accent with make-up on and nude colored lips. I like her flat hair, but the curly one does flatter her face shape so much more!

She´s got such a dollface by nature, but her face is pretty long - I just realized it on this make-up less photo!
I think her porcelain face does benefit a lot from her colored make-up, especially lipstick and blush. The bold side swept bangs do cover her long face a bit, while the tiny curls are just too cute! x3

What a big difference! She´s got a pretty long nose, and some amazing gradient hair!
Carefully applied nose make-up does cover up the fact that her nose is pretty long. The biggest accent is her eye make-up. The gradient hair does look even more interesting when styled like this, don´t you think so? =D

What silky flat hair she does naturally have! *__* I wish mine was like that... but her face looks a bit tired, and her lips appear to be quite small.
Some fresh colors of the make-up (blush, lipcolor) do give her a more healthy look! The lips also seem enlarged, while the curly hair does give her the final touch of Gyaru look!

When not wearing make-up, Himena´s nose is very present. Her eyes seem to be a bit downsunk on her inner eyecorner, while the outer eyecorner does sit a tiny bit higher. (Which I think is really super beautiful! >///<) Her hair does have a kind of hime-cut, which is even more visible when worn flat. o///o
Himena does correct her eye-shape with dark make-up, this does also take the accent from her nose. Her hair looks amazing and princessy as always, the side-swept bangs make her face appear even softer and more feminine.

What a cutie! :´D But her thin lips almost disappear... and she´s looking extremely young, almost like a 12 year old!
Some lipstick does the magic making her lips appear, while the eye make-up makes her more womanly. I personally think her hair does look amazing and healthy in both styles, curly and straight! But well... curly does still imply more Gyaru-ness, don´t you think so? xD

Those photos have motivated and inspired me a lot. If they can be Gyaru, then one day I can be, too! I just have to work hard for it! >__<
To sum up this entry: Teppei Koike Motivational! xD

Haha, I was carving a pumkin with the kid´s of the neighbourhood yesterday! (Had to do some babysitting, since their parents were all invited to a wedding ceremony). We had so much fun, and the lantern turned out pretty simple but so cute in the end! x3
(My mom´s little ceramic pumkin lantern is on the right side)

It´s such a sweet, sweet life, isn´t it?

Soooo good to be back! ♥

FINALLY got the virus deleted from my notebook, feels like I didn´t post for ages... >///<
So good to be back now, and it feels even better since none of my followers left me... thank you so much! ;__; That´s really touching...

Many things happened meanwhile!
I started working at kid's ICU (Intensive Care Unit) and kid's (1 to 12 years) unit at our hospital, which is just amazing. I feel so... "home". xD I can't help it, I just love working with kid's (used to work at kid´s psychiatry and newborn ward before, best experiences of my life!) - it feels to wonderful to be able to help them getting well again! =)

Ahhhw, enough of that! ~ Talking about work is boring. =)

It got sooooo freezing cold in Germany the past weeks!
It even started snowing on the mountains around here, which makes it even more uncomfortable to stay outside. x___X
(freeeeezing cold wind!)

Random photo I've taken when I visited my hometowns annual flea market.Can you see the snowy mountain in the back? I want summer to return! Dx
The flea market itself was pretty disappointing, just bought a pair of overknee stockings and some sexy jewelry for my Honey ♥.

A week ago, I decided to loli-fy my life a bit more again, so I took one of the biggest challenges in my lolita lifetime - BAKING MACARONS! >////<

I heard horrible stories about how terribly complicated it is to bake nice macarons... so even if I had the idea of making them myself for years, I never took a heart and made some.

But then I found a really nice recipe recently, and I just had to finally give it a try!
I also went so freakin' nuts to adjust the recipe to my tastes a bit, oh what a crazy bitch I am! D:
(Haha, actually I just replaced the powdered food color with liquid one, since it's the only type available in stores here. xD" But that changes the whole recipe, macarons are so fragile! =/)

The dough carefully placed on the baking tray...
...of course they had to be pink. xD

After baking!
Well, they're not perfect since their "feet" are showing way too much, but still... for my first try with an adjusted recipe, I think they turned so well and tasty!
I was so happy about that! >////< I spontaneously decided to bake some mint colored ones, too! xD
Macaron army, hr hr hr... >D

I filled the pink ones with peppermint cream, and the green ones with raspberry & lemon cream!
They were so tasty with a cup of lemon tea ♥
I shared them with my family and workmates, they really liked them, too! Ahhhw, it feels so good to cook and bake stuff for others! x3

I'll have to adjust the recipe a bit more, to make them become really perfect in shape and taste.
Once I've done that, I'll share it with you! =D

And for the end of this post, some recent gets!
(Actually there are a few more, but I didn't have the time to take decent photos of all of them... xD")

D.I.A skull belt
Bought it second hand from another german girl, thanks so much! =D
It's a little damaged on the leather band, but I just repaired that with some hot glue!
I wanted a rockish D.I.A belt for ages, and that one is just perfect! It's made of some snake-leather stamped material (no real snake leather for sure, since the material is just too thick), and has got some blingy gemstones all over! *__*

D.I.A Cardigan
It's a F size (Free size) cardigan by D.I.A, so I assumed it would be more of an XS or S size... I was aware that it might be too small on me, but surprisingly I can really fit in! :´D
Most loved item I recently got ♥

Yumetenbo leo blouse
*klick link above to see a way better stock photo of it!*
Instant LOVE. *__*
It's so sexy, I especially love the swallow-tail like back part of it!
Damn, I'm so into leo print right now! xD"

Yumetenbo heart heeled OVK boots
I was actually looking so forward on getting them, since their stock photo has taken my heart in an instant. But when I took them out of the box, I was really disappointed with the quality...
They're made of some very stiff and rough artificial leather. I guess it'll be easy for all kind of dirt to get stick on them. ~__~

The bow clip...
...came crooked and looking sad like this.
I'll try to fix it with sewing it in place, but seriously... I even got better quality bows from TaoBao for 20 cents...

Most annoying...
The shoes came stained with some white-greyish powder, might be dust or something like that!
(Yes, the stains were there before I was trying them on. xD)
Which probably proofs my verdict about the dust-sucking material. ^^"

Besides, that - the shoes are lovely and really cute. But those flaws are nothing I ever expected from Yumetenbo. I bought a lot of items from them already and will still do, but those boots leave a bittersweet memory in my mind. <.<

That's it for now, I better hurry back and study some more about "ketogenic diet" - uhw, a really boring topic of medical science for me. But last week I had to figure that I mostly forgot EVERYTHING about that topic, which is a big NO NO for my current work situation.
So let's waste Saturday night on it... *sigh* xD"

I´m getting old.
*self-pity off*

Have a gorgeous weekend and hopefully some warm sunshine for you! =D

It´s such a sweet, sweet life, isn´t it?
