Good evening, lovelies!

Today Kata and Hanna visited our place for some tea and treats.

I took inspiration for my outfit from Rarity to celebrate the fact that My Little Pony - Friendship is Magic's 4th season will begin next Saturday! I'm so exited! *-* 

Hanna was particularly mesmerized by her first encounter ever with a tea flower.

I also got some late Birthday presents - thank you very much, girls! ♥

Tea Tasting at Chai Wan

Hello, everyone!

Today me and my friend Hanna-Katariina went to a tea tasting at Chai Wan tea room. I had never visited this tea room before, and I love tea tastings. Too bad the so called tea tasting wasn't really a tea tasting - the price included only two types of tea - green and black - and one glass of bubble tea. We couldn't even choose which teas we would like to taste. The waitress who served us also looked very surprised when I asked her what kind of green or black tea can we have - I think that she should have told us the specific information about those teas without me even asking.

But on the other hand, the buffet was very good and had lots of yummy treats. So instead of a tea tasting, we just had a brunch, really. It doesn't matter that much, we still had a great time and the tea room was so beautiful (it is located in the historical Kiseleff's house). All in all, I think I shall still visit this tea room again, even though the tea tasting wasn't what I originally expected it to be.

Well, on to the pictures! First, my outfit. Just something very comfy and casual.

And then some food pictures. Bubble tea, I didn't like it that much, but it was nice to try something new. :)

Here you can see a part of the tea room - it is so pretty.

Also - today was a sunny day! It's really rare to have this blue sky in Helsinki in the middle of the November. *-*


Lolita Blog Carnival: Book Inspired Coordinations

Hello, lords and ladies!

I decided to join Lolita Blog Carnival in hopes of getting inspiration to post more - and something else than my outfits and purchases, too. I've suffered from a serious case of writers block lately, and have found it difficult to find new interesting topics and things to post about anymore, after so many years of blogging. So, let's hope this works and things here will turn to better from now on!

Without further bablings, on to the topic of the day: book inspired coordinations! I'm very happy that this is my first LBC post, because I have always loved reading and books inspire me endlessly. I chose three books from my (quite long) favourite list and did some coords based on them.

The Lord of the Rings - Arwen

The Lord of the Rings - Arwen

When I started to think about how Arwen would look if she wore lolita, my first thought was that she would be as graceful and delicate as she is in elven wear. Naturally Arwen would choose a grey dress, as that colour suits her complexion so well, and for an elven girl a flower print is a must. She would perhaps coordinate a chiffon blouse with flowing butterfly sleeves to her outfit, and in her head she would wear an ornate headdress with pearls to remind us of her elvish roots.

The Last Unicorn - Lady Amalthea

The Last Unicorn, or as she is called in her unfortunate human form, Lady Amalthea, doesn't really care for clothes. Nor does she have a purse, because unicorns don't need any earthy posessions. While trapped in this human body, which she can feel rotting around her as we speak, she still has to wear something. I believe her choice of dress would be something quite simple and elegant. After all she is so breathtakingly beautiful that she could just let her natural beauty shine instead of wearing complicated gowns. She would perhaps wear a black headband in contrast to her long, silvery white hair, and maybe some matching shoes. The unicorn pendant could be a gift from the desparate prince who loves her, not knowing that she is really a unicorn and can not feel love.

The Harry Potter Series - A Girl from Slytherin

Harry Potter Series - Slytherin

I know Harry Potter themed lolita is nothing new, but as I love the book series, I couldn't help choosing this theme to a one more round. I like to play with the Gryffindor and Slytherin houses - not because they necessarily are my favorites, or not even because I'd be in either one of them - but simply because they have the most dazzling colours!

This outfit is something an ambitious, driven and cunning, but also a very pretty girl from Slytherin could wear for school lessons, or a visit to Hogsmeade, or even to a secret date with that nice boy from Gryffindor. This outfit is simple, but not boring in the least. It includes practical opaque thighs, but also quirky shoes; a smart simple dress, but with beautiful little details; a spaceous bag for all those big books, but also a cute headband.

Mimi's Wedding Party 2.11.2013

Good evening, everyone!

Here's some pictures from Mimi's wedding party, from a week ago. Just got them now, and even though Sanni had to use flash in every photo (Finland is such a dark country!), I still find these pictures really cute. ♥

Let's start with a group photo of us frilly girls: me, Susanna, Tiia, the beautiful bride Mimi herself, Sanni and Kati.

Me and my darling. We look very tired because at this point we were very tired. x)


With Kata and Tiia.

And the outfit shots. With the coat...

...and without it.

I love this bracelet, because it makes me think of the elves in The Lord of the Rings! It is too big for me so I don't usually wear it, but luckily my dear friend Hanna promised to shorten it for me. So in the future I will be wearing it more often!

My Birthday Outfit

Hello, everyone!

Today is my birthday, but I already celebrated it with some of my closest friends (and boyfriend, of course) yesterday. And this is what I wore. Unfortunately we had to take the pictures with a flash because it gets so dark so early here in Finland. Even though I look like I dived into a bag of flours, you can still see the outfit pretty well from these snaps. x)

I don't know where that grey spot in my hair came from. Well, it was my birthday so maybe I just got older very quickly. Also - now I notice this J&J dress is so big for me you can actually see it in the pictures! There's no way to adjust it, as it doesn't have shirring or waist ties. And it is the size 1, too, so no way of getting a smaller one either. But on the other hand, it is very comfy to wear... XD

Casually Tired

Hello, everyone!

Today I met Sanni for some tea, and wore this casual outfit. I wanted something that wouldn't get much stares, and an ordinary coat is always a good way to disguise ones lolita attire. Besides, I really like this coat, it's so cute. :3

As I thought, this dress really does look good with all black. Too bad I look just darn tired, because I am darn tired. Nowadays it seems I'm tired all the time, no matter how much I sleep. It might be my old friend anemia kicking in again.
