Small meet-up / pink x black outfit

Yesterday I visited Le Pompom with my friends again. I'm not sure if the owner changed the recipe of the cupcakes but they were much more delicious then before ^_^

Also I tried to combine my outfit with black! I think the last time I have worn a Lolita outfit with black elements is 3 years ago? xD That also must have been the last time I have worn my cute star bag!

Here are the other lovely girls:

365 LLC - Travel Wishlist

I have a few countries and cities I definitly want to visit in my life:

- USA: a very big dream of mine, I want to travel the whole country and maybe even live there for several months, just because I want to know how it is to live there and understand their culture more.

- Japan: besides shopping for Lolita I also want to travel to several cities, since I started to watch tons of documentaries about this country and realized it has many other interesting things to offer.

- St. Petersburg, Moskau: I want to see those beautiful castles and buildings.

- UK, Ireland: Both countries have beautiful landscapes.

I also have some other places I want to see, but those are the most important ones. The other ones are also more very specific things then a whole country or city. Whenever I see something interesting, I save the link or pictures.

Kind regards,
Miuko~ <3

International Lolita Fashion Photobook

Yesterday a new e-Book got released by Ai Akizuki, which contains 200 pictures from Lolitas around the world. Several months ago, Ai asked on her Facebook page to send in some pictures for a book, and I also sent one which is used in the book. It is even used on the cover!

You can buy the book on Amazon for 4,61€ , it is a Kindle book but you don't need a Kindle, you can also download an App for your computer or mobile phone and read it there.

I bought the book, but I'm a little disappointed, since the pictures are quite small and you can't zoom in (it's nearly as pixelated as the preview...). Also they weirdly cut some pictures to have them all in the same size. And I think they didn't made any selection of pictures, they just put every picture they got into that book (I mean most pictures are good, but some are lacking quality).
Sorry, I sound a little critical, but those were just my first thoughts after flipping through the book. After all it's still a cute book, it contains some great outfits and the layout is nice. It's divided by continent and country, and it's always surprizing how many Lolitas live in countries you don't hear much about (like Israel, Colombia, South Africa).

Here is the page with my picture:

365 LLC - Favourite Lolita places

I barely do meet-ups in my hometown (Cologne), because most of my friends live closer to Düsseldorf and it just have better shops and cafés. But I will tell you my favourite places in both cities.

Le PomPom (Cologne)
This is a very cute cupcake café, I mainly go there because the interior is beautiful and the owner likes Lolita and is always happy to see us :)

Nordpark (Düsseldorf)
It's a park with many photo opportunities! It also has a japanese garden.

Südpark (Düsseldorf)
Another park with photo opportunities.

Relax (Düsseldorf)
It's a café and restaurant, not really pretty, but it has authentic japanese food, I always order Cream Soda and Curry there.

Takagi (Düsseldorf)
It's a japanese book store and I always go there to but the newest Kera or Bible, or to just brose through the magazines and cute stationary they have.

There are places in Cologne and Düsseldorf which might be much more awesome, but those are the places I mostly visit when I wear Lolita.

365 LLC - Wardrobe Goals

My goal for the next months is to invest in blouses and cardigans, and not in dresses, because I really don't have many of them and I could make so much more out of my closet if I would have more matching items. Also I want to invest in shoes and head accessories, because of the same problem. But I will only buy items if I have spare money which I don't need / want to spend for Japan.

New year, new plans - and 365 Day Lolita Challenge

Dear readers!

I hope you had a nice start in the new year! I'm really excited for this year - I will turn 25 years old, and I really think I should celebrate this special birthday. Also I plan to go to Japan - maybe not so much for shopping but definitely travelling around the country. And I know what I will do for the rest of my life - I can start an apprenticeship in September where I will study some law stuff to be able to work in the city government (sorry if it sounds weird I'm not sure about the correct english words xD). Well I'm not that interested good in law stuff but after the apprenticeship I can work in a normal office job and this is all I ever wanted (well all realistic jobs I ever wanted xD). I secretly hope to find another dream job before september but I'm pretty sure it's not going to happen.

So yeah I'm currently in a quite happy mood, I'm very motivated to do stuff (for example writing job applications, loosing weight, learning japanese), but I know it won't last forever - but I try not to think about my bad days, I will just look forward to new happy and successful days.

So that's about my private life, now on to my Lolita life. I look forward to the Putumayo Tea Party and to the Under the Sea Tea Party. I already started to plan my outfits and to craft a new headdress for UtS. But I can't really decide what to craft - I don't want to make an OTT headdress that looks too far away from Lolita, but I also don't want to wear a simple headbow... I spend the whole december making that headdress and I already threw away several versions because I didn't liked any of them ^^''''. As for Paris in July, I don't know if I will attend the events this year, I plan to go to Japan earlier so I will just look if I have enough money after the trip xD. For Paris I can't book early anyway because AP usually announces the Tea Party only 4 weeks in advance, so no rush needed xD.

As for my blog, I want to post more this year and what is better than a new Lolita challenge? And especially one that you can do eeevery day! I will participate in the #365LolitaLifestyleChallenge, which is created by Lace a la Mode, and you can find the instructions *here*. However I will only do the challenges I really like, and I think that not every challenge will include writing blog post, so you certainly won't see a new post every day.

That's it right now, I'm also looking forward to many new blog post of you (a.k.a. of all the blogs I follow), so have a nice weekend and...

...Thank you for reading,
Miuko~ <3
