Finally back online

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!

I wore my new ETC dress and my lovely fluffy fawn fake fur jacket from F21.

Here's a close up! I still love my wig so much <3 I think it looked lovely with the jacket and the dress :D

Now on to my biggest inspirations!

Sylvia from royalFruitcake

Dani from royalpinkgoth

Jasmin with whom I've had coffee

Patto from 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.

DIY ombre cross earrings

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)
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)

I started with ripping of a small bit of the sponge and dipping it into the gosh nail polish and stippling it onto the crosses approximately at the half height of the vertical bar of the cross and everywhere below. For the second layer I mixed the gold and the shimmering black polishes (1:1) and again stippled it onto the cross but stopped a bit farther below. I repeated this with pure gold until I had a nice gradient look and the bottom of the cross was really intense gold.
I let it dry for about ten minutes and then applied a very thin coat of the glitter gel (got this from ebay for approximately 4$) cured the gel and then applied a coat of clear UV-gel so that the surface is really smooth again. Again I cured it and cleaned the crosses and here's the final result!

I'm so happy with how they turned out!

As I've been absent for quite some time here are some more pics of me :D

Another pic of the earrings. (I'm wearing my new Lockshop wig! It's a lovely caramel to burgundy fade and feels absolutely amazing)

By the way I'm wearing my new knit I got at Primark about a week ago. It's the first fitted knit I got in years and I'm so in love with it.

Here's one of my recent nail designs. I wore this for the last Nerd Alert! at Club Pi in Vienna.
And lastly a pic of the base of my halloween costume. I dressed up as a dragon but as we were like partying all night (well actually eating sweet stuff) we took like no pictures at all D:

Update time

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:

First I gave Hime Gyaru another try. I'm wearing my GLW wig with the matching falls and a prisila halfwig. I liked it quite well but it still feels kinda strange.

Well as I said I purchased some new stuff online! This is the first thing I received <3 my first d.i.a. belt! I'm so in love with it. Words can't explain... there's a small revolver on it and handcuffs too.

This is what I do while I'm not working on my cosplay... sewing new skirts for winter xD it's made of a really thick woolfabric and sooo warm and cozy! I think it would work perfect for a everday hime-inspired look.

And last but not least one of my recent nailarts!

I will post the next entry of the challenge today so stay tuned!

Love, M.

Day 13


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.

Day 12

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.

Day 11

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.

Day 10

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.

Day 9

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.

This is my best friend!

Naaaaah just kidding. Me and my best friend have been working together last december and there we got to know Mr. BraveBanana

I've posted this pc before I know, but it has (except my boyfriend) all of my cloest friends and myself on it.

One last thing I want to mention today. Yesterday I watched another episode of the final season of Desperate Housewives. Mike Delfino was shot down D: I knew that this would happen but it shocked me anyways. But when Susan said her goodbye I couldn't hold the tears back anymore.

I love you once, I love you twice. I love you more than beans and rice.

Love, M.

Day 8

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.
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.

Day 7

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.

Day 6

A picture of something that makes you happy

Hi sweeties<3

It's Day 6 already! Yay!
Today I'll share a pic of the one thing that never fails to make me smile!

I've been searching over an hour now... These are the only pictures I haven't posted yet that show that one special thing. My boyfriends lovely smile. I'm so sorry for the crappy pics! They were taken last december when we met with my best friend and her boyfriend in vienna. We ate at a great indian restaurant but their lighting is kinda bad so all of the pics taken in there turned out kinda red.

Come back tomorrow for another challengeday!

Love, M.

Day 5

A song to match your mood

Hi sweeties<3

I'll keep it short for today! Here's the song:

Day 4

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.

Day 3

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.

So my very first love was Mamoru-kun from Sailor Moon. Back then I wasn't intersted in boys at all but Mamoru immediately catched my eye xD I didn't like Tuxedomask though.
I always dreamt about how wonderful life would be with a man like him. Well I was like 7 or 8 back then.
But thinking about it now... my boyfriend is quite like Mamoru... always teasing me, but still caring. And he's always there for me when I need him dearest.

Well I guess there's not much more to say about that so that's it for now and I'll post Day 4 in a few minutes!

See you later <3

Love, M.

Day 2 + a quick update

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.

Day 1

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.

This is like the most recent picture of me which has been taken last sunday at the Aninite.

Now on to the 15 interesting facts... well I hope there are enough :DD
1) I've been dying my hair since I've been 11, so I'm not quite sure what my natural haircolor actually would look like on me.
2) The first Manga I've ever read was Inuyasha and it's still one of my favourites.
3) I hate buying brand clothing.
4) I currently own 4 wigs and plan on stocking up.
5) I bought human-hair extensions in spring and dyed them black so now I cant wear them anymore :/
6) In all of my lolita closet there are only two real brand things that I got cheap as they had minor flaws that I could repair myself.
7) I'm officially an atheist, but actually closer to shintobuddhism, which is not an official religion in Austria.
8) I love cooking and baking. I love to try new recipes but my favourites are the simple things that I just throw together when I'm at home alone. Currently it's gnocchi with arrabiata sugo gratined with cheese.
9) My current favourite TV series are: HIMYM, The Big Bang Theory, Eureka and Supernatural.
10) I used to be a huge fan of J-Rock. Somehow all of my favourite artists just started making shitty music or splitted up.
11) I've been a lolita for several years but my first meetup was only two years ago.
12) My left foot is half a size larger than my right one (I guess that's not really intersteing butI found it quite amuseing when I found out.)
13) I'm currently 22 years old and still have to share a room with my younger sister.
14) I've been a girlscout for about 12 years and still miss the time.
15) If I could choose any place in the world where I could live I'd definitely choose Vancouver.

So this was Day 1! See you tomorrow for Day 2 <3

Love, M.

Aninite 2012 first thoughts and pics

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!

Apart from my wig and eyemake (I don't know why but somehow it just didn't work that day)I really liked it a lot.

Well me and my boyfriend have been working at the bring and buy shop that the aninite features every year. Everyone can bring their stuff and we sell it for them. I got some really cheap manga I've been looking for for some time and my absolute favourite merchandise I ever had. A sailor moon card game! It's like new and really lovely! I can't wait to use it :D

I spent a lot of time with my friends and met some new ones too! I had a really great weekend and I'm really sad that it went by so fast again. Sometime soon I'll be posting another post that will contain all of the pics and a short video too.

I hope all of you had a great weekend too. I want to blog more frequently within the next weeks and maybe do one or two tutorials too so don't miss it ;D

Love, M.

recent make up gets

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.


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.


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.

Lisbon Photodiary (Part 2)

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!

This is me with my new lovely plushwhale waliu. I immediately fell in in love with him.

This is my absolute favourite pic of my honey! We've been talking about something and suddenly he said: "Look over there!" And I was just like: "There's just the ocean." But he said: "No over there! Don't you see?... America!" He's so incredibly cute sometimes!

All we did on thursday was shopping and chilling. We really enjoyed our stay there and I would really like to there again someday.

Next up are a make up exclusive shopping post and a short post about the Aninite as I'm still waiting for most of the pictures.

Love, M.
