You are extraordinary!

Hello sweeties <3

OMG~ I was starting to write this post already 2 weeks ago...yes I am a bad blogger. But you know how it is - life takes up all your attention sometimes ;)

As you might already guess from previous posts there was one major change in my life BUT I am not going to talk about that today...or in the future that is ;P I want to talk about something rather unrelated that somehow is totally related xD

I could not be happier with how things are at the moment and still can't stop thinking serious and sometimes not so happy thoughts. I want to share some of these thoughts with you because I think you might have the same thoughts from time to time as well and maybe knowing that there are people out there who have the same fears make you feel less alone. And hey, maybe my advice in dealing with those anxieties might even help you ;D

To this day I often tend to compare myself to other people - mostly women. Most of the time I also tend to pick out only one point, compare it and in my head I end up on the shorter end. There might be someone taller with long wavy hair that I want but don't have. Or someone seems smarter than myself. At times like these I only see those great qualities that I might not have, forget about what makes me special and feel depressed or even worthless. I try to change myself for the world, to be more ideal or what I perceive to be ideal. I forget that I also have traits that are adorable, great etc. BUT instead of falling into a deep pit of self-pity and depression (like so often in the past) I try to stop my destructive thoughts and try to see what I love about myself on better days.

So what if I am not tall? I am on the shorter side, that makes me kinda adorable. I don't have an elegant face? Well, mine is round and I have sparkling eyes...I am cute like that. I am not a dancer, artist or something else I wanted to be as a child? Hell, I am a princess, that is far better. You can have long conversations with me about serious and silly things. I am a rather creative person, I love to decorate. And people love it when I smile. I might not be perfect and I might not have everything that I adore on others - but I am the best me I can be at the moment. And hey, there still is space for improvement, right? ;)

So, my point is, try telling yourself all the good things about yourself once in a while when you feel you are not as good or great as everybody around you. You are special because you are you - don't try to be someone elso only to please other people.

As Xander from Buffy already said to Dawn once "You're not special. You are extraordinary!" Never forget that whatever the world may throw at you - you are you and that is the best you can ever be ^o^

Both pictures found on Upworthy - Credit goes to the creator and of course Joss Whedon :)

So~ this was a serious post for once, the next will be picture heavy again - I promise ;)

Have an amazing evening <3

[OOTD] I really love Bonnets now ;)

Hello sweeties <3

I ish back again *muahahaha* And who would have thought - with another outfit-post. I have been so busy lately that I rarely get the time to post anything else but I don't want to neglect this blog again for nearly one month so for now we have to work with pictures of me wearing cute things...can we live with that? I think we can...right? ;)


1. Visit to the Botanical Garden in Freiburg :3

Rothenburg

Hello sweeties <3

OMG~ I have sooo many posts piled up here and I don't really know where to start *ahahaha* Maybe I should start with an awesome trip to Rothenburg 3 weeks ago. Although I already visited Rothenburg 3 times in the past it never ceases to amaze me with its cute buildings and romantic atmosphere ^O^ Also for the first time I went up the city wall...honestly, why did I never do that before? I already went to the torture museum 3 times but never got around to see the city wall o.O"


 
No wonder the Japanese love that town so much - the scenery is just taken out of one of Grimm's fairytales ^^

A loveletter~



Dear Alice,

you are the craziest person I have ever met! Most of the time I can’t stand being around you because you are driving me crazy BUT still you are the most important person in my life. We struggled, we gave up and never wanted to get up again at some point. We loved, we laughed and made so many great memories. We fulfilled our biggest dreams and met the most awesome people. We might not always agree on how we want to do things and we struggle each and every day but believe me, even if I don’t show it to you that often – I love the life we have and most importantly: I LOVE YOU! (and I probably should tell it more often and let the world know as well ;D)

Yours always,

OOTD - Portrait de Marie

Hello sweeties <3

last Saturday I went to see the amazing fireworks at Castle Ludwigsburg with my Lolita friends and we had such a great time. At first we went to a really beautiful cafe and had something to eat. Later as the weather was pretty nice we packed our things and went to the castle park to have a small picnic while waiting for the fireworks to start :3 As the castle and the park are know for their baroque splendor I decided to wear a barouque inspired Coord that my dear friend Nessie lent me for this occassion <3


 JSK: Krad Lanrete
Hat: Selfmade by my dear friend Nessie
Socks: Innocent World
Vlouse: Infanta
Shoes: Deichmann
Wig: Lockshop
Roses: H&M

 
Selfies <3 I do have really gorgeous friends *proud* :3

What did you do on the weekend?

Have a nice day <3

Milu Forest - Swan Lake Anastasia

Hello sweeties <3

I found my dreamdress *hahaha* AGAIN! Well, this time I am really going to buy it for sure *nods* Because the theme and the style just call my name~ It is Swan Lake Anastasia from the Chinese Brand Milu Forest and as soon as a dear friend showed it to me I was in love *O*

Swan Lake is my favourite fairytale *-* And the print is just a perfect depiction of what the story is all about. I really like how they not only put Odette (white swan) on the print but also have a picture of Odile (black swan) <3

Anime Rant - Monochrome Factor

Hello sweeties <3

I ish still alive but as my life is pretty boring at the moment I didn't have anything interesting to blog about ^^" Well, I could have ranted about the latest Doctor Who episode but nobody would have taken an interest to that...if that ever stopped me though xD I just couldn't get myself up to posting *hahaha* But today I just need to talk about an anime that I recently discovered *O* It is called Monochrome Factor and it was already aired in 2008. 

source
The story revolves around the typical highschool slacker Nikaidou Akira, who really isn't that typical at all as he excels at every sports. Akira is soon approached by a suspicious looking (handsome xD) guy called Shirogane who is telling him that they are bound by fate. Soon Akira and also two of his friends are thrown into the fight between Shadowworld and World of Light and our protagonist seems to be more than just a slacker.

Well, the story doesn't really seem too interesting, the normal highschooler receiving magical powers and growing as a person-story BUT it is far from that. With a good portion of slapstick and also Shonen-Ai this anime is really worth a watch. Also the characterdesign is really nice to look at and there are a great deal of Bishonen :3


It is not the height of animation and the storytelling but I couldn't stop watching it. I laughed so hard at some parts of the story that I couldn't breathe afterwards *thumbs up*

Which anime did you watch recently?

Have a nice day <3

OOTD - Rococo Princess

Hello sweeties <3

OMG~ can this week please be over now? Work has been so busy this week because 2 colleagues are on holiday and one is sick at home...meaning I have to work for 4 people now @@ How did that happen? But tomorrow is Friday and the weekend can come *muahahaha* I srsly need holidays after this week xD But anyways, before this week started I went to the birthday of a really dear friend and wore my amazing Rococo Soul-Dress for the first time *O*

Beloved Lestat - The Brat Prince returns

Hello sweeties <3

OMG~ OMG~ OMG~ I am so excited. Not only was another installment of the Vampire Chronicles announced (Prince Lestat) some time ago but now Universal also bought the movierights to all the books around my beloved brat prince *^* I already loved the movie Interview with the Vampire from 20 years ago and can't wait to see what Universal is going to make out of the awesome books now. Also the screenplay for Tales of the Bodythief will be done by Anne Rice's son Christopher <3 SOOO EXCITED!!!! [ Btw. on this blog we don't speak about the 2nd movie based on the books even though I think Aaliyah was great as Akasha :)]


You already know who my 1st choice for the role of Lestat would be but who do you think would make a great Vampire from Anne Rice's awesome books? Who should play Armand? What about Louis?

Did you read the Vampire Chronicles? I am so excited that finally some real Vampires are going to take the stage again *O* *dances happily*

Hope you have an awesome Wednesday~

OOTD - Prussian Princess

Hello sweeties <3

Today I want to show you an outfit that I actually planned to wear at the Kamijo concert but ended up not wearing because 1 month ago it was still a bit to uncomfortable to wear...if you know what I mean *hahaha* On the weekend I got a second chance though and I really love how it looks and it did fit the location (We went to Castle Hohenzollern *^*) really well in my opinion.

Visiting Castle Hohenzollern really felt like travelling to a different world. It is high up on a mountain and the view is just gorgeous *^* Unfortunately it is really crowded all the time x"D

Make-Up Favourites

Hello sweeties <3

I know. I know...I am a really bad blogger and everytime I promise I will do better but what happens? I am to busy to blog...so this time no promises...I am just trying to get back on track. Starting with a post that I have planned for nearly one month now *hahaha* Today I want to talk about my make-up favourites :3 As my favourites don't change every month I decided to do this kind of post once in a while when there really is a "drastic" change in my favourites and well there was and I am gonna show you ;)

This time I have many highend products on my favourite list. When I started collecting make-up I thought the price is just because of the name and the quality isn't that different but the quality really is way higher than drugstore quality so the price does not only come from the well known name but really from the high quality ^^

Père Lachaise

Hello sweeties <3

OMG~ I nearly forgot to write about our last day in Paris...but as promised I did make it until the end of July *huahahuahua* I won't be able to post as much in the next few days though because I will visit my parents again *yay* But anyways here comes Day 4~

We, or better to say I, decided that for the last day a visit to Père Lachaise, Paris' biggest cemetery was in order. And now you might ask "WTH does she want to visit a cemetery?" Well, pretty easy...to visit the grave of Oscar Wilde which we only found after we met a nice couple from Spain who fortunately had a map of the cemetery (Yes, there is a map with all the graves written down). But before that we walked around and were fascinated by the size of the cemetery...it is really like a town on its own OoO And seriousely some people spent more money on tombs than on an actual house for living~


The streets even had names ^^ We were lucky that we didn't loose our way throughout the day...at some point I wasn't really sure if we already visited one corner or not *hahaha*

Top 3 - Favourite Mascara of all time *-*

Hello sweeties <3

It is time for another Top 3 again. This time I decided to be not so nerdy and rant about some of my fav anime but today I want to show you my Top 3 Mascara - my favourites of all time *^*

1. Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes
I only just recently discovered this beauty through a recommendation of a friend and wasn't sure about it as first because the brush looks really really different BUT soon after I applied it the first time I was so in love and since then I wear this Mascara most of the time. Also the packaging is really really cute and the Mascara itself smells like roses *^* And even though the price of 28 EUR is really high for "just" one Mascara it is really worth every Cent :)

2. Benefit They're Real
I was lusting after this one for quite some time...it will be 2 years now I think and only bought it for my birthday this year. I heard so many amazing things about this Mascara I just had to get it myself. The price is the same as for the Lancome Mascara but the same goes here als: Worth every cent! The brush is entirely made of plastic and the shape is also pretty unusual. The fibres are pretty short so you wouldn't think there is a great effect BUT your lashes will really look like fake lashes even if they are not ^^b

3. Tarte - Lights, Camera, Lashes
picture taken from the official tarte page
I got this Mascara through a swap with a girl from the US and it is AMAZING *_* Unfortunately you can't get Tarte in Germany. I don't know if you can get it at Sephora France. Need to check that out later. I think the price of 20USD is pretty okay, converted to EUR it is 17EUR. It is a bit pricier than your average Maybelline or Essence Mascara but also definitely worth the price. It gives an absolutely natural cute look and it stays for ages...but it is not as hard to swipe of as They're Real *hahaha*

So, what Mascaras are you using at the moment? Do you have any recommendations for me?

Have a great start into this week <3

Shower Gel and why I am not allowed to buy anymore...

Hello sweeties <3

Today marks the start of another challenge for me! This time I challenge myself to NOT buy anymore showergels for the next 6 months...probably? And now you might ask why? Well, over the last year I accumulated waaaaaay to many shower gels >>"  *points down*


I really love buying new showergels because I am absolutely obsessed with new scents in my shower but as you can see it really went out of hand x"D Over 20 showergels for only one person is...stupid xD

Funeral Procession of Rose

Hello sweeties <3

I fell in love again *^* This time it is neither an anime nor music but yet another dress from my favourite Lolita-brand Baby the Stars shine bright, well better to say Alice and the Pirates ;) 

The print is called "Funeral Procession of Rose" and the theme is perfect for autumn in my opinion. Also the print itself is really detailed but not to overwhelming at the same time...if you know what I mean...and of course there is a rose theme going on -  and you know that this gets me hooked every single time *hehehe*

 There are two JSK-versions as always and I have to say this time I totally adore the Babydoll version *^* I am seriousely contemplating to get this one in lavender...I just love all the romantic little details *sighs* The other version is quite nice as well but somewhat plain in my opinion. What do you think?

I also really love the Onepiece but I am not quite sure about the collar ^^" 

What is your favourite print at the moment? Do you have a dress that you absolutely need to buy now?

Hope you have a nice afternoon~

Paris City Tour - Louvre, Notre Dame and the Seine~

Hello sweeties <3

Here comes the 3rd (and 2nd to last) part of my Paris report. The 3rd day (Saturday) was all in the name of sightseeing. Beforehand I already booked tickets for a bustour and a tour on the Seine. I also already looked up how we can reach the sights we want to see before we even reached Paris. I need to be prepared before travelling somewhere xD

The first thing we did after we left the hostel was finding the starting point of the bustour. After some minutes of walking in the wrong direction we finally found the place and our tour could start. Our personal first stop was the Louvre but we only took some pictures outside as we did not have the time to actually go inside and enjoy all the pieces of art as much as we would have liked it.
A really nice couple took our picture in front of the oh-so-famous pyramid :)

Top 3 - Anime based on Otome Games

Hello sweeties <3

And another break from my Paris posts xD I promise I will finish the posts about Paris within July ;) But today I want to continue with another Top 3. This time, as I am binge-watching those kind of anime at the moment, I want to show you my Top 3 anime based on otome games. For those of you who don't know what an otome game is, here a short description:

You are playing a girl, that most of the time has perfect characteristic features and is overly nice etc. and you come to a new environment (eg. school, fantasy world) and in this new "world" the inhabitants seem to be only goodlooking guys. And in the beginning of the game you can choose which guy you want to go after. Through decisions within the game you either get your goal or you don't xD And that is roughly what otome games are xD And I love watching anime based on those games :3 You could call that my guilty pleasure *hihi*

1. 遥かなる時の中で (In a distant time)
For the life of me I couldn't find the opening to the anime...only found the commercial for Maihitoyo. Anyways, this anime is set in the Kyoto of the Heian period and Akane is sent back there to gather 8 warriors to safe the country from an evil clan...if I remember correctly, which I actually don't. I just know that I loved watching the anime and I already watched Maihitoyo 5 times *coughs*

2. 神々のあそび (The game of Gods)
This one I watched just recently and I loved it. The female character wasn't too stupid and all the guys are just toooooo cute. This time our female lead is transported to a school where gods from different countries have to learn about the human heart in order to avoid the destruction of, well, everything and heroine Kusanagi Yui has the "honor" to teach the handsome gods.

3. 歌のPrinceさま - まじ1000% LOVE
I can't even explain why I like this one so much...I have no excuse whatsoever xD I just really liked watching it and the music is so damn catchy...I probably only like the anime because of the main song XD The story is as always not to complicated...this time it is set at a music school for highly gifted musicians...and no world saving is needed her xD

Do you watch this kind of anime? What do you think about them?

Have a nice day~

Kamijo in Paris

Hello sweeties <3

As promised here is part 2 of my Paris report...and part two for this report means it is concert day *yay* This day didn't start as early as the day before. We actually could sleep until around 9am...but as we were woken during the night by some fool who thought sounding the alarm was a fun idea *argh* we still were rather tired. But soon this went away and was exchanged with excitement over the fact that we would be able to see Kamijo live *O*

Fairy Tail is back!!

Hello sweeties <3

...yeah, well, I am a bit slow in that matter. The show is back on since April already but as I had so many things going on the last months I absolutely didn't notice until 2 days ago XD Already watched all the new episodes and am up to date *ngahahaha* Love the show as much as ever *-* And just wanted to ramble about it here...so bear with me ;) Also Gray is as AWESOME as ever...and I really came to love Gajeel during the last episodes :3

Glossy Box June 2014

Hello sweeties <3

I nearly forgot to post about this month's Glossybox *ahahaha* This time it was pretty awesome I have to say - the theme this time were the United States and thus there were only American brands included *yay*

The design of the box was also really great *-* Stars and Stripes <3
