Some days ago I stumbled across a band called Lullatone. They make kawaii, mostly instrumental, music with mostly super cute titles :3 The sound of the songs reminds on lovely computer games and are, in my opinion, perfect background music while doing some creative work like drawing or crafting.
They seem to have already a great collection of songs. So far I've only listened to their 'Soundtracks for Everyday Adventures' album.
'Checking things off of a to-do list early in the morning'
Lullatone's songs are hard to find on youtube. Here is a link to their site if you are interested in hearing more of them: Lullatone.
What's your favourite music to play in the background while doing other things?
Already a while ago Punkangel and me did a little shooting for a outfit contest that was hold in our local J-fashion facebook group. The group is ment for people who live near Linz/Upper Austria and are interested in J-fashion. You can view it here.
So the subject for the contest was a Midsummer Night's Dream. Punkangel and I decided to do something in the direction of Mori Kei.
This was my entry for the contest.
And here some additional pics that turned out quite cute in my opinion :3
We really had a fund day strolling around in the wood looking for a good place to take photos. Can't wait for our next shooting <3
Also the winner of the contest still isn't announced. Punkangel and me got equal likes so the winner will be decided in a voting round. I'm excited for the results ^___^
Long time since I made a list for you, right? Today I have one for the newbies in your rows. You are planning to attend your first Lolita Meet-up but you don't have a clue on what you should bring with you? Here is my list of things I found useful to carry to a Meet.
#1 Lash Glue
My fake lashes always come off after a few hours so I always take my lash glue with me to stick them on again. For this a pocket mirror also comes in handy.
Nothing more annoying than noticing that your hair/wig was messy after a photoshoot. Take a brush with you and care for your hair before taking pics.
#3 Refreshing Spray
This is useful for Meet-ups in summer. Spray them on your body and feel refreshed. They mostly come with good scents too.
#4 Something to drink
Talking with the others is more fun when your tongue isn't dry ;)
Tissues are always handy whether you need it to rub some dirt off your shoes or to to care for your running nose.
#6 Make-up bag
With some basic make-up supplies to refresh your look when needed.
Ok that one is rather optional. I love to take a parasol to Meets as they protect from strong sunlight, rain and snow. Moreover they are a great compliment to most Lolita outfits.
I always try to keep my bag for Meet-ups as light as possible as I have to carry it around all day ~

There is something I didn't tell you yet. In October an Innocent World Tea Party will be hold in Vienna. I was lucky and managed to get a VIP Ticket (The VIP tickets were chosen trough a raffle). I decided to take this occasion to get my first IW dress and it arrived yesterday <3
It arrived in a brown IW shopping bag.
The communication with IW was great. They sent me an invoice after I placed my order and sent me an email when the dress was shipped out.
The lace is fine.
The waist ties are detachable. The bow isn't as opulent as it is the case with most of my other dresses, so I maybe won't detach them this time.
Compared to the stock photos the print is a lot more pink. On the stock photo it looks like the print is brown only, however, as shown on my pics this isn't the case. No problem for me though as I like pink ;)
The quality is nice. The fabric is rather light and therefore quite suitable for summer. I love the details on the print.
Another observation I made it that the dress isn't suitable for cupcake-shaped petticoats. I sadly don't own an A-line petticoat so I couldn't try it with one. A petti with low poof works fine :3
I would order the dress again even if I had to pay a quite high custom fee.
I'm really looking forward to the Tea Party now, however, I'm sad that some of my friends didn't get a ticket :/
Whom of you is going to the Tea Party? Did you plan your outfit already?
