Friday Favourites Fail

Awww... maaaaaan...

Mara from "Fashion Fairytales And Sewing Secrets" does this thing called "Friday Favourites" and I wanted to start that too, because I think it's a nice idea and a schedule is helpful if you want to blog on a regular basis. But every darn Saturday I remember that, once again, I missed it!

To be fair, yesterday I was sure it was either Thursday or Saturday but under no circumstances Friday XD

So here is my Friday Favourites Fail:


Hot pink nail polish. It looks less obnoxious then you would expect, it actually looks really cute. I'm in love with this colour, it looks so fun ^^ This is 027 Pink Obsession by gosh. I only bought it because my local drugstore had this 3 for 2 sale and I grabbed it at the checkout to have 3 products ^^ And for once I'm glad I grabbed something at the checkout!

And since this is a Fail "Friday Favourites" entry, I only have one favourite item :/ I could tell you about my foot-mask and that it makes my feet super soft but I don't think you want that ;) oh gawd, was that TMI? I'm sorry!

Anywho, I hope you have a nice weekend. What is one favourite item of yours at the moment? Tell me in the comments below!

Lashy Goodness!

muharhar... MUHARHAR... MUHARHAR!!!

That's my "Oh my god, I got so many lashes, I can't wait to glue them all on!!" - laugh ^^

Guise, I got so many great lashes in the mail today. My friend Nora, who is currently in Japan, was nice enough to send me some *faint* I asked her if she could get me some because I will need them for the fashion show. They look amazing! I didn't give Nora any directions so she did an extra good job picking out the bestestes lashes :D


What was the last thing that made you freaking excited as hell? Tell me in the comments below!

bling bling bling

Goodday! (<== I wrote that on purpose because that's how I scream it trough the house whenever I get home :D))

As for now, there are 4 weeks left until the fashion show and I have an crazy amount of work to do. But sometimes I just don't feel like it. Happens to the best of us. Well, but because I can't do nothing a whole day long, I decided to at least work on some jewellery.


I'm still in my "Nightmare before Christmas"-PJs, don't judge me, it wasn't even 9am jet XD Besides the fact that I should obviously be a hand model (just kidding), I really like this ring-bracelet combi. It's simple and playful at the same time. It's also not as distracting as you might think it is. I made another ring-bracelet, similar to this one, I wore them both to see if I could work with them and it wasn't a problem at all. I mean, I wouldn't cook with them but other than that I don't see any problems. Maybe driving but I wore the long, dangly one on my left hand, so it can't possible interfere with the stick.

I can't wait to wear it to a Gothic Lolita outfit. What do you think? Do you like it? I know, a lot of you are wearing Sweet Lolita and this is probably not appealing to you but what do you think anyways? Tell me in the comments below!

I went into the woods

Hello!

Today I did something that I never do. I went outside and experienced Nature! (DUN DUN DUUUUN!!!) It was horrifying... no, it was actually quite fun ^^ The Boyfriend thought it would be nice to have a picnic, so we packed up enough food for about 10 people and went outside. In my hometown, Eisenstadt, we have a really lovely park, the former castle ground of the prince Esterhazy. It's really pretty and if you walk deeper into the park, there are some nice shadowy glades, which are perfect for a picnic.


We had some sammiches, fruit salad, normal salad, muesli bars, chocolate bars, bananas, bell peppers, nut stollen... yeah, like I said, enough for 10 people ^^ I'm glad the boyfriend "eats like a horse" (I'm so sorry Schatzi, that's the English equivalent for "Scheunendrescher" :/)


 The boyfriend looks so tan next to me. It's amazing... especially because I got some sun and, at the moment, I'm tan for my standards.

And then, this bitchy red ant decided to attack me -.-


You can't even see it but it itched like crazy! I'm used to itchy because of the super awesome rashes I have all the time but that was something else. It really hurt :(

Fortunately chocolate can heal almost anything and after some bites of creamy deliciousness it was all good again. YAY!

What did you do this Sunday? Anything fun? Tell me in the comments below.

Outfit of the Day: in case you ever wondered

Good Afternoon Sirs!

I'm about to drive to the boyfriend, we want to watch Alien and I thought I show you what I look like, in the rare case that I'm not wearing Lolita (or Jeans and a Band-shirt ^-^).


To be honest, I don't feel that comfortable in this dress because I'm showing so much skin and I can't wear bloomers under it. It's also not the most flattering dress for my body shape but the material feels very soft and cooling.

What do you like to wear in the summer to stay cool? Tell me in the comments below!

Oh yeah - more circle lenses!

Do you know what the hardest part about blogging is for me? Finding a good way to start the entry. I could spend hours thinking about it...

Anyhow, I ordered a new pair of circle lenses ^-^ The thing is, the last pair I ordered was quite dark and whenever my pupils widened (you see, my pupils think it's funny to make me look stoned from time to time), my eyes turned black. You couldn't see any of the colour and I didn't like how it looked.

So I ordered a pair of blue ones and they are amazing!



This are the ColourVUE Big Eye in Cool Blue. The colour is stunning. I'm in love with it. They have a diameter of 15mm. That's really big, I thought I wouldn't get them in ^^ I think they look pretty "natural", at least better than my other pair. I'm going to test them on the boyfriend today. He really doesn't like my Dolly Grey lenses and if he doesn't notice the new ones right away, it means that they do look less like lenses :D

What do you think of the lenses? Do you like the colour? Do you think they look super fake? I would love to hear your opinion on it!

How to fake short hair

Hello Ladies!

My hair at the moment is a little too long for my liking but I can't get myself to go to the hairdresser because, really, I dislike doing that so much ;D Hairdresser are scary! They can totally change the way you look and if you don't like it, you have to deal with it for as long as your hair needs to grow. For me that's about 3 month :/

So, I want my hair shorter but I don't want to cut it. What can I do about that? I can fake short hair! YAY


I don't want to say I curled my hair, because all I did was put 7 hair rollers in and it didn't even look good, just messy but that's perfect for the look. So, with pre-curled hair, I take two strands from the front and cross them on the back of my head. I secure it with one bobby pin where the two strands meet. That's the hard part. Now for the easy one. Part the rest of the hair in the middle, grab one side and roll it up against your head. Take some bobby pins and secure it. I took 2 for each side, so 4 all together. Repeat with the other side. That's all. If you want you can use some hairspray. Or a lot ^^ That's what I did!

It's simple, it looks cute and it gets my hair out of my sweaty neck. That's what makes it the perfect hair do for the summer :D

As always, if you have any questions or requests for hair tutorials, feel free to leave me a comment! Have a nice day!

Outfit Of The Day - hothothot

It's sooo hot... *melt*... it has 32°C at the moment and I had to pick up my little brother from daycare. I sure as hell don't want to leave the house but if I have to, not without my parasol!

 
Dress: Innocent World
Umbrella: Baby, the Stars shine bright
Shoes: Paladium

 My little bro was so cute today. We were walking home and he said: "I'm glad there are at least some shadows" and as I replied, that I'm carrying around my own mobile shadow, he looked at me like I was the greatest nutjob he ever met ^^ He was polite enough to say nothing but his face said it all. He would rather melt than carry a pink parasol with ruffles and lace on it with him :D

I hope you are not melting and work at a place with air conditioning that's not too cold. Have a nice day!

Rorscull

Wooh... let me... let me just sit down for a minute or two...

okay...

So, I'm currently sitting in my kitchen, eating breakfast and watching Stargate because that's how I like to start my day ^^ While waiting for the water kettle to boil my water (it's sooo lame, you have no idea!) I thought, why not blog about my "work" a little? That's why I went upstairs to my room to get my camera and now, back in the kitchen, I feel exhausted... *caugh*... yeah, I'm still sick.

Now, not only do I absolutely dislike being sick, it actually started to make me worry if I will finish my work in time. I haven't talked about it yet but the Gothic Lolitas Austria (we are an official club, that's how cool we are :D) have been asked if we wanted to organize a fashion show at a convention on July 21st. Of course we want! Sounds awesome! I decided that it would be a great opportunity to show "the world" my new collection, inspired by Rorschach tests.

Being sick and feeling drained all the time I couldn't do much in the last few days but yesterday I was able to print the first print. It's my "Rorscull" ^^


It looked awesome! Unfortunately it's too high up on the skirt part so I had to do it again. And then this happened:


Too much water in the paint-water-mixture -.- Well, not to worry. A friend on Facebook messaged me, she wants that on a t-shirt, so it won't get to waste. WOOH! Great! But I still needed a skirt part with the Rorscull on it, preferable in the right spot, too. So I tried again:


What is earth? How did that happen? I don't even know. I'm doing a very unprofessional screen print method, so I have a stencil and something like that just shouldn't happen.

But it will work. Maybe I try it for a last time but that will have to wait. Now I have to put inkblots on sleeves ^^ Heck yeah!

I hope you are having a nice day! Enjoy your weekend and don't get sick!

How to be sick... in Lolita ^^

Hello La... *cough cough sneeze cough*

I'm sick. I got in the rain on Friday and since Saturday I feel like crap. My joints hurt (especially my knees), I'm sneezing and coughing all the time and no painkiller on earth can stop those headaches. Today I went down to the kitchen (my room is on the first floor and the kitchen beneath it) to get a glass of orange juice and when I reached the kitchen I felt like there was no way in hell, that I would ever be able to go up the stairs again XD

There is nothing worse than being sick and I'm really bad at it. I transform into this whiny lump and all I do is yammer about how I'm dying a very slowly and painful death. I hate being sick.

Unless... unless I take this badass cough syrup that makes me feel all light and soft inside. My body reacts funnily to any kind of pain medication. This cough syrup additionally contains alcohol. Half a tablespoon of this syrup and I'm the happiest person on earth, I'm positively stoned and feel like a pink fluffy unicorn dancing on rainbows XD I try to avoid it though. It makes me weird.

Though I still feel incredible weak, I'm constantly getting better. I have no idea how to be sick in Lolita. There is really nothing cute about it.

not only do I look like shit but also pregnant -.- great

What do you do when you are sick? Well, other than sleep a lot. I love to watch old SciFi movies and eat the bestestes soup of the world (<== my Mom makes the bestestes "get well soon"-soup!).

I lied!

I just came home from a vernissage. Our neighbors opened the smallest museum in Austria. It's about 4m² big... yeah, it's really small!

My neighbors, of course, know that I'm a "designer" and what I do. Their daughter is amazed that I run around like I do. She thinks it's impressive that I just don't give a damn about what people think and that I keep running around in those dresses.

And the whole evening she was telling the people that I sewed the dress I was wearing... I didn't...


I lied! That's my "I lied" face ^^ Pretty accurate, don't you think?

Anyhow, I was wearing Angelic Pretty today but when she started telling the people, that my dress was handmade, I thought, was difference does it really make? None what so ever. I will probably never meet any of those people again and I doubt that they will find out about Angelic Pretty. I regret nothing XD

What would you have done in my situation? Tell me in the comments below!
