Hi sweeties <3 I'm finally back online :D my internal W-lan adapter broke and I had to use a cable all of the time which frustrated me so much that I didn't feel like using my netbook at all. So here's a short updated what happened in the last weeks! It's already my third month at my new working place and I really enjoy the work there even though I have to get up at 5 am every day. I have a lot of responsibility there and it feels really great to know that I'm living up to everybody's expectations. On november 25th there was a Lolita Meet up in Vienna which I've joined. Loads of cute girls where there anbd everyone looked so amazing. I didn't wear Lolita at all for several months because I just had no time to dress up and when I did I wore Gyaru. When I put on my dress and everything it felt so special again. I love that feeling! We met at the MQ in Vienna and then took some pics as always. The main part of the group then went to see an exhibition about naked men in art and Jasmin and me went to starbucks for some coffee and a bit of small talk. It was really great to get to know her better! Afterwards we all met again to have dinner together at a great vietnamese restaurant (Saigon). The food was really delicious and it's always so much fun to go out with so many lolitas! Except from Daga all of my favourite Lolitas joined too. So now on to the pictures! royalFruitcake royalpinkgoth dreamyxlullaby Next big thing that happened was the medical test at the police academy! We had to do a drug test and a psychological test, an ergometry and a basic check on my eyes, ears and general body wellness. Everything went well and I'm one step closer to my goal! YAY! So now the last obstacle I have to take is the sports test :D I will get my invitation around christmas and I'm so excited already. During my last day at the casern I've been talking to a girl that is in the training right now and everything sounds so exciting and awesome. I really can't wait to start the training myself :D So that's pretty much all that's worth mentioning. I will do my first giveaway around christmas so don't miss it! I'll be including some handmade jewelry, cosmetics and other stuff. See you soon! Love, M.

Hi sweeties<3 I've been feeling like I need to blog for weeks already but my netbook somehow can't build up a wireless connection anymore so I wasn't really able to come online except with my phone. Well finally I'm back again but my w-lan still doesn't work (had to go back to using cables D:) On saturday I went to Vienna to meet a good old friend ogf mine. I haven't seen her in ages so I was really excited to meet her, but before that I went for a bit of shopping. I got a new shirt with bronze crosses all over the front at Forever 21 and lovely zebrastriped cross earrings at Six. When I finally made it to Claire's I thought I wouldn't buy anything but then those big simple black cross earrings catched my eye and I just had to buy them. There were thousands of ideas flashing up in front of my inner eye. I could put stud on them, or a bit of pink polish and create some kind of gloopy texture, put some gold leaf flakes on them and so on. They cost about 5€ and you can find them at the section with the more "gothic" looking stuff. Basically what I did was using a nail art method on the earrings. Here's what I used: -a makeup sponge -nail polishes from catrice (genius in a bottle) and gosh (Purple Heart) -tweezers These are optional: -UV-curing lamp -a brush for applying the UV-gel -clear and glittering UV-gel (instead of glittering gel you could also use a nail polish and a top coat to seal it in)

A picture of you last year - how have you changed? Hi sweeties <3 I wanted to do a post like this before but somehow there was always something else to post about. So let's do this! I'll try to find a pic for every month that passed since I started wearing gyaru last august. August 2011:
Hi sweeties <3 I guess I should be talking about how sorry I am for not blogging recently, but honestly I just didn't feel like it. I wanted to do this whole challenge thing so badly that I somehow lost my will to blog. I just started at a new job and it is way more exhausting than I thought in the first place. I love working there and all of my coworkers are really nice but when I come home I just want to take a nap and have lunch. I get up reaaaaaally early and I have never been one of those to get up easily. Right now I spend most of my afternoons working on a cosplay, exercising or sleeping. I didn't feel like dressing up at all for the first two weeks and then sudddenly I just felt like it and I purchased some new stuff online and dressed up, put on some make up, met up with friends. I restarted my life kinda. As blogging is a part of my life I wanted to write a new post too, but I just couldn't find no inspiration. I figured out it would be best just to start writing anything. I would find my flow again and in the end there would be a nice entry... well we'll see. Recently I finished reading all of the so far released books of the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series by George R.R. Martin and started re-reading Harry Potter. The books seem so incredibly short compared to what I read before xD It's october already and this time last year I started my last year at the university. Everything feels kinda strange now that I realise that I'm not going back there. I really miss everything but in the end I know it's better this way. I have to follow my dreams and stop sticking with stuff I'm used to. (See how the post is evolving?) At this point I feel like I'm finally starting to live my life the way I want it. It's not at all perfect yet but I'll just keep on taking one step at a time and I'm sure I'll reach all my goals. So for now I'm trying to getting back to my online life the way it was before I started working. Rejoining forums and stuff. I want to dress up gal more often and improve my style. So for now I guess I will continue with the challenge but not on a daily basis. I will show some of my current outfits and talk about my life as always. For a start here are some recent pics of me:

Goals Hi sweeties <3 So here are my current goals! 1) Become a better Gyaru I know it may sound queer. On the one hand I want to be taken serious as a working adult and on the other hand I want to be a good gal. Well I see so many gals having great jobs and being awesome gyaru too and I think those girls are a real inspiration. I want to be one of them. I want to show everyone that you can look awesome and still have a job with big responsibility. 2) Move to Vienna I was born and raised in a rather small town in Austria. I mean it could definitely be worse but I realised that I'm more of a big city girl. I love the anonymity of big cities. I love sky scrapers and here in Austria Vienna is the closest thing to a real big city that you can get. My favourite place is Kaisermühlen. Beneath those huge buildings and right next to the Danube Park. 3) Become a good archer When I was small I was a huge fan of Robin Hood. So I wanted to be an archer too. I built my own bow and made my own arrows but you can guess they never worked too well. So I kinda gave up on that dream until my birthday this august when my dad, my boyfriend and myself got a professional longbow for me. Now I just have to find a proper trainingplace where I can loose some arrows without having to worry about people or animals that I could harm. 4) Be a better cosplayer I did my first cosplay about six years ago and after that I did only like two proper cosplays but I planned so many. I love cosplaying but most of the time I just can't get myself to making the costumes. Once I get started I tend to lose myself in the details. I want to get more efficient and finish some of my cosplays that I've already started or planned. First up will be my Lady Loki cosplay. I hope that I'll be able to post tomorrow evening! Wish me luck for tomorrows test! See you soon <3 Love, M.
Something you don't leave the house without Hi sweeties <3 I'm late again! I'm just so busy at the moment. Getting used to my new work, having less free time and organising everything is really overwhelming at the moment. I have to get up around 5 am everyday which is like three hours earlier than I was used to. I go to work by bike and guess what happened today? Someone stole my seat! Like really? Who the fuck would steal a seat when he could take the whole bike... anyways thanks to a very nice guy that watched the whole scene and told me that those ..... put my seat into a wastebin my sister was able to recover it and I don't have to buy a new one yet! I was so pissed! I was working for six hours and I've been in a big hurry as I had to catch my train to vienna and then that happened... I'm just really disappointed by the teens in my hometown. Anyways today's theme is things I don't leave the house without! In terms of keeping this post short (due to a lack of time)I'll stick with my 5 points. 1) My Keys: When I was younger I often (more like frequently) forgot to take my keys with me and ended up sitting in front of our door for hours. Most of the time it was either winter or raining xD Well I found out how to get into our flat without keys at some point of time, but when my mom found out, she told me to never do that again and that I better never forget my keys again... or learn how to get onto our balcony and wait there. :D 2) A bit of make up: You never know what's gonna happen and maybe you'll be in dear need of some concealer or eyeliner. You never know so I try to always have the most important things with me. 3) Water or something else to drink: I'm one of those persons that easily dehydrate. I get really dry skin and feel dizzy when I don't drink enough so I like to keep a small bottle of water or juice in my bag at all times. 4) My Kindle: I love reading! I don't know how some people can actually be proud about not reading any books... I love it! I think reading is very relaxing and also entertaining. So whenever I go by train or bus or anything I take my kindle out of my bag and start reading :D Currently I'm reading the fifth book out of George R. R. Martins series "A Song of Ice and Fire". 5) My Phone: I just like to stay in contact with everyone so my phone has always got to be at my side. Love, M.

Your favourite TV shows Hi sweeties <3 Today I'll be showing you five of my favourits TV shows! I'm a huge fan of fantasy and crime fiction unfortunately there are not so many good tv shows that include fantasy or crime fiction. 1) Game of Thrones You just have to watch this! There's nothing more to say. Just watch it! 2) Rizzoli and Isles One of my favourite crime series. It's based on the books of Tess Gerritsen and has an amazing plot. 3) Supernatural I really disliked this series in the beginning but as I grew older I learned to love it and now it's one of my favourites! 4) Eureka This is like the only thing close to scifi I really like when it comes to TV shows. It's funny, but at the same time really serious and never fails to amuse me. 5) The Big Bang Theory Well this is it for today. As with the movies I might be extending the list when The challenge is over. Love, M.
Something you're afraid of Hi sweeties <3 I'm sorry for being late but after work I went to vienna straight away and my boyfriend and me went shopping together. When we came home I was so exhausted that I just lay down and fell asleep. So here's yesterdays post! The one thing I'm most afraid of is failure. It doesn't really matter what it exactly is I just hate failing. Whether it's a test, work, or simple things like make up and hair. I just hate it. I want to do everything as good as I can. Be perfect. This all has left me with a huge problem... Whenever I get really nervous before a test or something my stomach starts to go nuts. I get real bad cramps, can't eat anything I feel really miserable and in the worst case I even throw up for hours... A few weeks before my A-levels I was diagnosed gastritis nervosa. I didn't eat much for over two weeks and when I finally felt strong enough to eat something I wasn't strong enough to keep it down. I lost about 6 kilogramms and felt really bad. I couldn't sleep and being awake was even worse. Since then it was never that bad again, but knowing that it could be like that again makes the whole situation even worse. Now I'm not only afraid of failing but also of my stomach going crazy again :/ The only thing I can really do is try to stay as calm as possible and of course take pills that help relax my stomach. Is there anything you are really afraid of? Let me know! Love, M.

A favourite picture of your best friend Hi sweeties <3 I'm in a bit of a hurry at the moment so I'll just post the pic and write a tiny bit.

A place you've travelled to Hi sweeties <3 So this time you're gonna be reading a bit about one of my favourtie places. Canada I've been there for two weeks in 2010. My uncle asked me whether I would like to join him an his wife on a little trip through the west of canada and of course I joined them! We started of in Calgary and I have never in my life before seen any buildings that huge! (Well not until we came to vancouver later during that journey). I was simply amazed. We went to Banff after one night and stayed there for almost a whole week. I really enjoyed the time there. It's a very charming little city amidst the rocky mountains. We visited Lake Louise and Lake Morraine. We've been to Vancouver for several days and that was my personal highlight. There's a book off, a lovely china town, loads of japanese shops/restuarants (there was a konbini right across the street from my hotel) and of course Vancouver Island! I haven't been there, but if I ever have the pleasure to go to Vancouver again I will stay there for several days for sure. On our way back to Calgary we also stopped at Jasper. Another lovely small city with great surroundings. Well all over I loved Canada and I can't wait to go there again! What's your favourite place? Would you want to go to Canada too? Let me know! Love, M.

Favourite Movies Hi sweeties<3 Another day another post! I'm really getting used to blogging every day and it is still a lot of fun. I've been thinking a lot about how to do todays post. Should I give you short summaries or just a simple list, reasons why I loved the movies or just the trailers? Well in the end I decided to make a short list of five movies and to provide the trailers. So here we go! 1. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Out of all of the HP movies (And I love them all dearly except the 7.2 which I think ruined it all.... How could you make Tom die like this? I guess everone was disappointed by his end) this is my absolute favourite! 2.Sleepy Hollow This was one of the first horror movies I've ever seen and I think it's amazing. It allows you to feel like you're in it too. Even though it's "old" and the effects were not that amazing back then I think it's perfect! 3.Green Lantern Well what should I say... Green Lantern is simply my favourite hero and I loved the movie so much. I'm exited to see the next part! 4.Kamikaze Girls In terms of learning truths about friendship I think this is the best movie I've ever seen! I love the setting and the characters and simply everything about this movie! 5.Red Riding Hood Not only has this been my favourite fairytale when I was little but this was the movie me and my beloved watched on our first date! I think it's an amazing movie! There are a bunch of movies that I love over the top but it would take me hours to list them up and you years to watch all of the trailers in case you didn't know the movies yet. Maybe I'll extend the list after this challenge! Love, M.

Your Parents Hi sweeties<3 Here we are again! Today's topic are my parents! Well I never planned talking about my family but well let'S get started! My Mom and Dad are both in their fourties and work at Leiner and Kika. My dad is planning and selling kitchens and dinningrooms and my mom does pretty much the same with lightingsystems. They got to know each other at a dancingcourse. Me and my younger sister are their only children. Thanks to god! My mom tends to get a bit loud when she wants to make something clear and we quarrel a lot. Like a big huge lot. But anyways she's still my mom and I love her. I've always got along better with my dad. He's very into antique stuff. Whether it's roman or egyptian doesn't really matter. We do quarrel too but not that often. One thing we all got in common is our love for medieval fashion and festivals. Me and my Dad love to cook and experiment a lot and we also grow our own vegetables. Well he grows them and I eat them :DD When I got into this whole J-Fashion thing my parents were just wondering if I was going crazy but over the time (it took me several years!) they accepted it and now my mom at least also helps me with deciding on outfit when I'm not sure if a special accessoire goes with the rest and stuff. Well I guess there's not much more to say. I sometimes really hate them, but in the end you know... parents are parents and most of us just have that one pair so you love them anyways just as they love you anways cause you are their children! Love, M.
Your first love Hi sweeties<3 Honestly I just forgot to blog yesterday. In the morning I made some homemade pizzasauce because we had like 1,5 kg of tomatoes from our balcony/garden and nobody would eat them. I also made some mango-pear jam and a nectarinepie. I also had to get our flat in proper shape again as my parents were coming home from berlin. Anyways around 15 o'clock I had my second driving lesson! It was really fun again but I prefer my first teacher. He's just way more fun. So now on to "todays" main part. I'm not quite sure about this. For me love is something more serious and past loves are things I prefer not talking about. So I'll just stick with the childish way of love.

Meaning behind your blog name Hi sweeties<3 So I guess today is the hardest of all thirty days. The meaning of my blogname... well honestly there is no real meaning behind it. When I started using tumblr a few years ago I had to find a unique name and as I was madly into lolita at that time and me and one of my best friends where always making senseless japes about fairtrade bananas I just chose bananalolita. I got used to the name and really learned to love it. I think it fits my personality quite well. It's a bit weird but still cute. As I got into Gyaru more and more I thought about changing the name into something more suitable, but honestly I hate it when I follow a blog and they suddenly change their name, so I stuck with it and I'm happy about it. What do you think about my blogname? Tuesday I went to vienna again and my boyfriend and me met a friend at ikea. We bought a larger bed for his room, a large mirror and an awesome led-lamp (called dioder). It took us like four hours to shorten the cupboard in my boyfriends room so the bed would fint into the room and to build the bed and everything else. We installed the lamp at the lower side of the window bench so it can be used as reading light in the bed. I really love it because it features a remote with which you can change the color of the light. It's my favourite toy at the moment. The mirror is still just leaning against a wall as we're not sure where to put it. Well that's it for today! Stay tuned for Day 3! Love, M.

Introduce, recent picture of yourself, 15 interesting fact Hi sweeties <3 Today is Day 1 of my 30 day blogging challenge, so let's get started! My first name is Stephanie but I prefer being called Steffi. Most of my friends call me Miko. This is not a randomly chosen nickname, but the name of the first character I ever cosplayed. I've been to school until the summer of '08 when I did my A-levels. I started to study chemistry right afterwards and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately it seems like I'm not really made for chemistry and it was harder to get motivation to go the courses every day. In the end I really hated it so I stopped. Right now I'm working at a local store to get some money and training for my application as a policewoman. Initially I wanted to study chemistry and afterwards work as a policewoman with my BSc but sometimes things just don't work the way you wished for. I'm really into fashion, no matter if it's lolita, gyaru or just simple streetfashion I love looking for things that are special. I love reading and currently my favourite books are the A song of ice and fire books by George R. R. Martin.

Hi sweeties <3 So the Nite is just over and it was a really busy weekend but I guess everybody had a lot of fun there. At least I did :D Friday and sunday I just wore gyaru and on saturday I was part of a group cosplay. We were the four seasons. Unfortunately I don't have any pics of friday and saturday yet so all I can show you is a pic of my second try on Himegyaru!
Hi sweeties <3 So recently I got some new make up as old stuff was running out or I just wanted to try new thngs that have been released recently. Lips: Catrice Ultimate Lip Glow It comes in just one shade 010 One shade fits all and it really does fit everyone. It feels more like a lipbalm and changes it's color when you apply it. It simply enhances your own lipcolor which I really love! My boyfriend hates liptints, lipsticks, lipglosses and anything else that he can actually feel when kissing me but! he accepted this one. So now I can wear some color on my lips and kiss him anyways. I think it feels great, gives a decent color and my lips feel really hydrated. I got it for 4,99€ at DM which my appear a bit pricy but I think it'S worth it. Teint: NYX Concealer in a jar 02 Fair I've been looking for a good concealer for some time and them found this one. It's rather cheap (6,95€ at Douglas) and does really do a good job. It does come in a jar as the name implies and I use a small concealerbrush to apply it. I simply love it! Contouring powderset from ebay As with the concealer I've been looking for a decent contouring set with a white powder that does not shimmer and finally I found one! It was only 3,25$ and the shipping was free. It does not completely cover your skin or stain. So if you want to go really white you'll need to use something else but it does really give you nice contours. I use it almost everyday and will definitely buy it again! Click here to see the seller's store! Perfumes: Well these do not really fit the subject of this post but as I got two new ones I thought I might as well write about them right now! Vivienne Westwood Let it rock! I really like this one! It reminds me a lot of the perfumes my mom used to use when I was small. It's just a really oldschool fragrance that may not be perfect for everyone but I like it for going shopping or going out as it is strong enough to withstand smoke and repeated clothchanging. Talor Swift Wonderstruck Rollerball I got this one from DM during a promotion. Otherwise I would never ever in my life even have tried it at all. But surprisingly I really love the fragrance and application. As the name says it's a rollon, so you don't spray it all over your room but can apply it right where you want it to be. Top notes: appleblossom, freesia, raspberry Middle notes: vanilla, honeysuckle, hibiscus Base notes: amber, musk, peach, sandalwood These my current gets. I hope that some of you will try the lip glow too as this is definitely my favourite out of all of these products. Love, M.
Hi sweeties <3 I'm sorry for taking so long to post the second part but the last week was really busy again as the biggest convention took place on the weekend and I had to finish my sisters and my cosplay and get everything together for my other outfits. So here's the rest of my holiday photodiary. I'll start with tuesday when we went to the big aquarium and then go on with wednesday when we went to the westmost point of europe. Around lunchtime we stopped at the palacio nacional de queluz. It was amazing but as I said it was lunch time and freakishly hot!
