Cinderella Meet-Up

Hi, my dear readers ♥

It´s been a while since the last time I had a chance to wear lolita - all these long months since Christmas meet-up in Prague ! Since that time I was always not in Germany or didn´t have time for the meet-up until March...finally !
No one knew how the weather will be, so girls made a plan to walk around Nürnberg, take some photos, have a lunch and then go to see the new Cinderella movie together.

I have to tell the truth that I´m not really interrested in Disney princesses and I would probably never watch this movie, but I wanted to meet with everyone again, so whatever =D !
We also got the chance to see the short Frozen Fever before the film started, which was really cute even though I didn´t like the original movie much =D Mainly because there is too many songs and I always feel this weird second-hand embarrasement when there are songs in movies....mostly in Disney movies ewww ...the only one which I can stand and I actually really like songs from, is Pocahontas =D
The movie itself was really fairy-tale-ish and childish. There died quite a lot of people, but it was so shallow....they probably didn´t want kids to be sad... But costumes were beautiful ! The dress princess had at the ball was waaah and Rob Stark as prince charming? he he not bad (...with Xaro Xhoan Daxos as his guard captain =D) ...(I´m currently re-watching Game of Thrones, so I just couldn´t not see it) I didn´t like Helena Bonham Carter as fairy godmother, because I´m really tired of her face and I think there could be someone more original and iterresting for this role =/ What I really like was the change of pumpkin and animals to all these fancy things which took Ciderella to ball =D aww

So if you like Disney princesses and shiny happy fairytales and Rob Stark go watch it and I´m sure you will like it =)
I will stay loyal to the beautiful czech version "Three wishes for Cinderella" which is the most beautiful fairytale ever and will always be !!! *_*

I´m such a movie critic ! Let´s better move to outfit photos ... ha ha

I tried to wear classic lolita with dreadlocks for the first time, because I really wanted to wear this fairy tale skirt, but really didn´t want to go to cinema with wig =D
And I like it ! Which is great, because I´m getting tired of wigs...the main reason is that my dreadlocks got too long to fit inside the wig without looking like and alien, or professor Quirrell ...



I put pearls in my dreadlocks to match the print on the skirt and I even bought a matching nail polish !!! Can you see it ?!! I´m surprising myself ! =D

And here are two beautiful photos from Ophi


flower hairclip - Porcelain Doll
succulent brooch - Sleeping Beauty
skirt - BTSSB
tights - Lindex


Did you see the new Cinderella movie? And what do you think about songs in movies? Is there anyone with the same "problem" as me ? =D (... so far know only about my boyfriend)


I hope you´re all enjoying the beginning of spring !
Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥

Road Home

Hi, my dear readers ♥

A while ago we were invited by our friends for Bagna Càuda party ! Don´t know what Bagna Càuda is? Don´t worry, I had no idea either =D

It´s an Italian dish, typical for Turin (that´s where our friends are from), served in these funny "cooksters". You place the sauce on the top and one small candle inside the cookster, which keeps it warm during the evening. The sauce has a very strong taste and it was served with celery, fennel (♥!), bread and lot of other things...actually there was a ton of great italian food and at the end of the night we were all totally stuffed =D
It was quite an international party -  there were people from Czech republic, Slovakia, Spain, Poland, Mexico, Germany and of course Italy ! A lot of fun !
I´m so grateful for living abroad, because I´ve never met so many people from all around the world in my life like in the past three years =)

We also had Satan with us, because our friends recently got a puppy as well.
They instantly became best friends ♥





Since we were about to stay inside the whole evening I could finally wear my new violet harem pants, which I just brought from Prague (They are really thin and more for summer, but I just couldn´t wait!). I bought them in my new favourite shop Samsara / Himalife - we did there quite an order in January (it was an 80kg package) =D Among our new salt lamps, salt frying board, salt stones, shungite stones, tea, burning incenses and I don´t know what else...I also ordered this cute pair of harem pants, handmade and sweatshop free from a small factory in Tibet. Not only you can see pictures of people who made these clothes on Samsara FB, because the shop owners visit them personaly and the clothing is for a really good price, but you also support Tibetian schools with every purchase ♥ If only all online shops were like this one !

I also wore this super-amazing waistcoat which I bought on vinted.cz *o* One day it will be perfect for a dolly-kei outfit.....if I ever collect enough things for dolly-kei =D Until then I will probably wear it with these pants, because I really like the combination and together with my useless glasses I felt like some kind of wandering-steampunk-oddities-seller =D ha ha





"glasses" - C&A
waistcoat - vinted.cz
necklace - DIY
bracelet, harem pants - Samsara
shoes - Vagabond

And of course I can´t leave you without music !
(I hope you find my "music heart-attacks" at least a bit interresting)
The name of the post is same as a song from MC Yogi, who is currently my favourite... who would have said that one day I will be listening to yogi hip-hop =D ?
Now you´re probably laughing, I know - but believe me, his music is great !
His latest video is for song Road Home - my favourite from the new album (which I even supported on Kickstarter so it could be released =D yay !) ♪




Hopefully the spring finally started in Germany, which makes me really inspired =D I have so many ideas for new harnesses and pictures *o*
No time to lose !



Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥

Burn My Shadow

Hi, my dear readers ♥

I know this will sound like some kind of advertisement, but - do you know Fennec Design? I don´t know if I already wrote about it, but it´s probably my favourite shop on Etsy ♥
One of the first ones I´ve ever ordered from on this website. And I was never dissapointed by the quality and originality of their designs.
I bought here a birthday gift for my boyfriend more than three years ago...
(which still looks great, didn´t washed out or shrinked)


...and in autumn I came back for another one, this time for Christmas ..


... as you probably noticed, my altar is decorated with this beautiful fabric print ...

...and while I was ordering this pretty cardigan for my bf I couldn´t resist and bought something for myself, too (like I always do while Christmas shopping -_-)

Since I am a huge fan of asparagus season, I just HAD TO buy this patch ...


Now I really have to finally make a decision where to put it, because the asparagus season started yeasterday whaa =D (I have some serious obsessions with vegetables - top three are asparagus, egg plant and a new addition - fennel ...)

...aaand mushrooooms, because mushrooms are cute


I will probably sew them on my grey mori skirt, or some bag ...I CAN´T DECIDE >_<

... but most importantly I finally purchased a piece of clothing for me ! A perfect pair of leggins with amazing print - succulents and cacti ♥_♥

Now I think it´s time to say that all clothing from Fennec Design are sweatshop free and designs screen-printed on it are hand drawn by one of the two owners - Joelle
I have to say that their work inspire me on many levels.
Not only I love animal skulls, herbs, small vegetables and succulents on Joelle´s pictures, but I also can´t get out of my head photos of their amazing wedding (TAKE A LOOK) and the way they designed their new studio *o*

you are amazing, I want to know you and be your friend


...OK...stop, now I think you have the idea of how much I like this shop =D

Let´s move to some photos with my new succulent leggins !






top - H&M
necklace - Omnia Oddities
leggins - Fennec Design


Name of the post inspired by amazing UNKLE and the song which echoes in my head a whole day everytime I listen to it ♥
(it also has a really good video ♪ )




Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥

Crochet Bikini Top, Christmas Sweater and UNICEF scarf

Hi, my dear readers ♥
I finally took photos of all the crochet/knitting projects I finished in the past few months ! I have no idea why it took so long =D

The first one is really ancient, I remember finishing it after we got back from France in Summer...?!! The reason why I didn´t take any photos of it is that I was still hoping for some warm summer days at lake, with hula hoop and picnic ...
A few days ago I said to myself OK stop waiting, I will put this on, pretend it´s summer and finally take some photos ! ha ha... and found out that the crochet bikini top isn´t as perfect as I remember it... I don´t know what happened, but my nipples are peeking out when I wear it =D ha ha ...whatever ! I will wear it with tank top, it looks good as well.....or for sun bathing... or at home ! =D

I used crochet hook n.4 and some cute yarn I bought in Kaufland
the pattern is from a German magazine "Kleine Diana - Häkel Lust" 07/2014



Hippie flower power !
I CAN´T WAIT FOR SUMMER
...and I really want something like this
( Anyone knows about a good pattern? I searched ravelry twice and never saw one I like =/ ... so I will probably try to make one myself, because I NEED IT *o*)

The second thing I want to show you was meant to be my masterpiece, but ended up being a BIG joke =D ...but a good one !
For years I´ve been planning to knit a sweater for my boyfriend as Christmas gift. First I didn´t know how to knit, then I didn´t have any good pattern. Last September I finally found a magazine full of knitting patterns for men *o* So great! I chose the one I liked the most, ordered 1000000m of yarn, new needles and slowly.....slooooowly....very slowly...knitted a sweater for my dear boyfriend...
BUT...apparantely I chose a yarn too thick and the sweater ended up looking more like a sleeping bag than an actual sweater.



It took me so much time and efford to knit the front and back part with all those cables, that even though I knew it´s going to be huge, I finished it =D
It´s so humongous that I couldn´t find a box for it !
I had to sit on it while packing and used 1000m of duck tape, but it was still looking like it will explode in a few seconds !
When I wear it, it ends at my knees and sleeves are double length of my arms !
ha ha ha =D

I used circular needles n.10 and yarn Istria from Vlnika, pattern from Verena Special - Strick Fashion for Men





The last thing I want to show you is pretty simple and unexpected project, but I really like it and wore it trough all cold winter days.
Some day before Christmas we went to Christmas market to have mulled wine and just as I was drinking my second cup I noticed that the UNICEF stand has yarns for sale ! That instantly cought my attention and after I found out that they are selling a paper bag with yarn, pattern and pair of needles to support kids in Syria, I was giving them my money and went back home with a new skein of yarn and feeling that I did something good =)
After all these never-ending cables I was in mood for something really simple - for knitting while watching fairy-tales and romantic Christmas movies.
So I did just a simple infinity scarf from garter stitch ♥

I don´t remember which size of needles I used, but the name of the yarn is Basics Capello from Lana Grossa





... and full outfit photos !
I wore my new grey dress from Gudrun Sjõdén ♥



+ bonus



I couldn´t help it, he looks so terrified =D


Back to knitting !
Since Christmas I´ve been working on an over-sized crimson sweater for me, I finished The Lonely Tree Shawl and Baktus for my friend *__*
A lot to post about !
...let´s keep fingers crossed that I will manage to finish this sweater when it´s still at least a bit cold and not at the beginning of June =D

Are you knitting / crocheting something at the moment ? I´m curious, tell me =) !


Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥

"art" post - January/February

Hi, my dear readers ♥

January and February were cold and grey so I was drawing mostly colorful watercolour pictures of my OCs, because they always make me happy =)
I also tried a bit of coloring in PS, but still...I like watercolors more ♥

" I´m a creep, I´m a weirdoooooo ♪ ♫ ♪ "

Elweera loves music and everytime they get a bit drunk with Niam they sing out loud their favourite songs with her playing guitar.
It sounds surprisingly good, because Elweera is a pretty good musician and Niam has a beautiful elven voice ♪

I´m trying to learn how to draw emotions and more "alive" picture - this was the first one =)



"Her Kingdom"

Momo loves all kind of plants and really miss living in an elven forest. That´s why she´s buying more and more flowers, cacti and succulents and her room slowly starts to look like a little botanical garden. She´s studying botany, so it´s allowed by Niam "for study reasons", but what´s not are fairies - it´s forbiden to take them from forest and keep them in a city.... so, please don´t tell anyone =) !

This was so much fun ! I have to draw more pictures like this - a lot of details, watercolors and cacti ♥


Elweera´s winter problem...
....and Momo´s solution !
-be careful what you are saying when knitter is near-
=D




I fell in love with this photo so much that I just had to draw it ♥




At the beginning of February I finally saw Maleficent and she was so pretty *o*
Copic try after a while ...



"Necromancer"
portrait practice
... I don´t know if I like it or not =D



"Priestess"
evening doodle =)
I was too tired to do something bigger, but I really wanted to draw !




"Fairies"
This one is already from March, but it matches the topic so I will put it in this post as well =)
Momo´s fairies on their own picture, so you can see them better !

I used masking fluid on this one for the first time and it was great *o*



And now for some big news concerning my "art"
!!!

Remember my never-ending "I-have-no-idea-what-to-do-with-my-life-crisis" ? It got better ever since I closed my lolita shop and the harness Etsy store goes much MUCH better, so I don´t have to worry about money and actually can have some plans with new products...
... but still, if I ask myself a question "Is this is what I always wanted to do? Did really my greatest passion became my job ?" I´m not sure about the answer. I still love drawing so much...I can´t help it ! I have this tiny little feeling in my head that I shouldn´t give up, work more and maybe one day I will get somewhere...it´s all about confidence and that´s a thing which I almost don´t have........and that´s why I need you, to support me, to motivate me - I´m not collecting followers like Pokémons =D Just... every new follower is like a big kick for me to continue and believe that maybe it isn´t as bad as I see it >_<  sooooo thank you in advance if you decide to "give it a like" ♥



BUT STILL !
Critique is very important, so if you see any mistakes or think of some picture that it´s a complete crap - say it =D it´s not like I will never take a pencil in my hand again, I need to learn =)
Thank youuu ♪


P.S. I started to put together some posts about fairtrade fashion, food and lifestyle....it will take time to collect photos and informations - but I´m working on it !


Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥
