Lolita meet up: Eating pancakes on a ship

Good evening my dearest readers,

I wish you all a nice 1st advent and I hope you all had a great weekend. I spent mine with some shopping and I visited our local christmas market with my family. I like christmas markets, the smell of sweet and tasty food and all the pretty christmas things! (But I dislike the amount of people... >_<'')
How about you, do you like visiting christmas markets?

Anyway, last weekend we had a Lolita meet up in Bremen and went to "Admiral Nelsen - Das Pannekoekship". It's a ship that looks like an old pirate ship and they make tasty pancakes - sweet or hearty. Our Lolita group was bigger this time. 
After eating our yummy pancakes we were allowed to go to the deck of the ship and we took some pictures there. It was windy and a bit cold, but also funny and a ship is such a pretty photo location. :)
When we were finished with tai´king pictures, most of us needed to get their trains or busses back home, so we just walked back to the main station of Bremen.

It was a very nice meet up, somehow short, but we spent most of our time eating and drinking on the ship. And here are a few pictures:

And as I mentioned in my entry before, I decorated the beret with a brooch. :)
I wish you all a lovely sunday and I good start into the next week and into december! 

Yours,

PS: I also made a "Get ready with me" video about this outfit, maybe you like to take a look at it:

Selfmade: Red Lolita Beret

Hey my dearest readers,

today I have an entry about the last Lolita accessory I made: a beret to fit my Baroque Pipe Organ skirt. At first I wanted to buy a beret, but I found nothing in a matching color - so I decided to sew one. I bought the best matching fabric I found (it was hard, because I wasn't able to buy the exact color of the skirt): I bought 50cm cotton fabric in a local fabric store.

It was the first time for me sewing a beret and I used this tutorial by Natron & Soda (I'm sorry it's only in german). At first it looked difficult, but it was pretty easy and I'm very happy with my result. Well, it's not perfect - but I like it and it matched the skirt. :)

 - A few steps while sewing -
 - Finished beret -
 - Beret with a bow as decoration -

For the whole outfit I added a silver/black brooch onto the bow and I was wearing it last saturday on a Lolita meet up, so you'll see the whole outfit with the beret in my next entry. :)

I think I'll see a beret for some daily outfits, too. It was fun making it and I really like how it looks.
How about you? Do you like hats like this? 

I wish you all a nice friday and weekend! 
Yours, 
Zhenya

Daily Outfit: Autumn Feels

Hello my dearest readers,

I promised to blog more and here's a next entry. This time a daily outfit again, before I post the upcoming Lolita fashion related entries. :)
I'm totally in an autumn/winter mood and I love to wear my sweaters and hoodies again, combined with a cute skirt or shorts. On saturday I found this pretty sweater and it's a bit different from my style, but I really like it. And the fake leather shorts are still one of my favorite pieces.

 Sweater: Primark
Shorts: Ann Christin
Tights: Primark
Shoes: Osco
Necklace: New Yorker
Backpack: Offbrand (bought during a convention)

I hope you all keep yourselfs warm during this colder days. In two days our local christmas market starts and I'm already excited to visit it - do you like christmas markets?

Best wishes,
Zhenya

User surface of the site: 4/5
The site itself is constructed user-friendly: the article pictures are very good and the structure is clear. I only give one minus point, because I the searching system could work a bit better, but that's just a personal taste.
Contact: 5/5
The contact was great! Right after I set my order I received a confirment e-mail and later more e-mails, that my article was packed and shipped. I also got a tracking number and was able to see, where my artcile was.
Article Quality: 5/5
I'm amazed by the quality! The skirt looked heavy on the picture, but it's not. The print is very pretty and detailed and I love the ruffles at the bottom of the skirt. The lacing in the front of the skirt is also very well done.
Conclusion: 5/5
I'm very very happy with my FanplusFriend order! Everything went well and I'm amazed they shipped to fast! And the skirt is so pretty and I got a bag as gift - I would definitly buy again on their site.

I'm still looking for a good way to coordinate this lovely skirt, but I already got an idea in my mind. :) I can't wait to wear it on the next meet up! <3

Halloween 2014: Let's party

Good evening my dearest readers,

on Friday was Halloween and I visited a friend's Halloween party. I was so excited, because I really like Halloween and dressing up for it. Last year we did not managed to make a party, so I was glad there was one this year. :) I wasn't sure what to wear, but I ended up with some kind of a "Gothic Bat Girl". But first of all the food I made:

1. "Bloody pumpkin cookies"
 2. "Green glibber marshmallows"
Making creepy food is a lot of fan and next year I want to be more creative. :3

The party itself was great - we had a lot of fun and other visitors brought awesome creepy and tasty food! :) Unfortunately we did not took a lot of pictures, so I can only show you my outfit and some selfies. 

  - Pictures by my boyfriend -
 Selfies with my friends and my boyfriend <3 -

That's all - I hope we will be on a Halloween party again next year and I'll take some more pictures then. :)

I hope you all, if you celebrate Halloween, had a nice evening, too! 

Best wishes,
Zhenya
