New Shoes ~

Hello everyone ~
Finally the first part of my an*tai*na order arrived. I´ve ordered three pairs of shoes and two of them were in the package I picked from the post office today ^o^

I ordered pink platform shoes...

...and a pair of blue shoes full of bows.

I love them so much *-*

They also sent me free socks!

The are adorable as well ~♥

A short review about an*tai*na:
♥ the communication with them was super
♥they made the shoes really quick
♥shipping took about three weeks
♥the package was a bit damaged when I got it.
At least there was some plastic wrapped around it so nothing could have fallen out.
♥ As the shoes were custom made they fit me perfectly.
♥ I would totaly buy from an*tai*na again.

Surely you also want to know how they look worn:

♥ Matched them with the new socks ♥

♥ Matched with my blue bodyline socks ♥

Besides the third pair of shoes I´m also waiting for a fairy keiish skirt and a sailor fuku from bodyline. I hope I can show them to you soon ~

EDIT (18.6.13) Wonder why I never reviewed the third pair of shoes? Well, that's because they never arrived. I contacted an*tai*na several times but they do not even reply to my mails anymore.  Even if I like the two pairs I reviewed above, I can't recommend ordering from an*tai*na as their way to deal with this problem is so unprofessional. If you are going to order from them, better think twice. 

See you soon,
Yaya ~♥

The Lolita lifestyle

Hello everyone :3
I´ve mentioned the Lolita lifestyle before but I never really explained what that is. So I will do it now ^0^

Actually it´s a bit hard to describe what the Lolita lifestyle is. In my opinion it is mostly that you try to put a little of this feeling the fashion gives you into your everyday life.  A classic Lolita ,for example, maybe would like do to activities ladies of former times did. Whereas a sweet Lolita would maybe like to do activities she also did as a child.
You do not have to be a everyday Lolita to live the lifestyle. The lifestyle actually helps you to put some Lolita feeling in everyday even if you are not able to wear it everyday.

So after this confusing explanation of mine I want to give you some ideas of activities a lifestyle Lolita could enjoy.

Activities you could do alone

 (of course these can also be done in groups)
  • Holding tea time every day
  • Sewing
  • Drawing
  • Gardening
  • Baking
  • Cooking
  • Writing poems
  • Writing letters
  • Decoden (decorating stuff with rhinestones and so on)
  • Photography
  • Reading
  • Playing an instrument
  • Scrapbooking (a book that you fill with photos and so on)
  • going to the museum
  • watch children movies
  • blogging

Activities you could do in groups

(of coure these can also be done alone)
  • Tea Parties
  • going to a funfair
  • going into a cafe
  • going to the circus
  • Karaoke
  • having a picnic
  • going to conventions
  • doing photoshots
  • doing a sleep- over
found on

Sports that fit the Lolita lifestyle

Please note that any kind of sport will make you sweat. I recommend to buy training clothes that go with the Lolita esthetics or to wear a dress that you do not wear so often anymore. The clothes you wear for sports should also be washable.
  • Ballroom dancing
  • Ballet
  • Ice skating
  • Roller skating
  • Badminton
  • Taking a walk in the local park
  • Hoola hooping
  • Sailing (especially if you are into sailor Lolita^^)
  • Horseback riding
  • Riding bike
found on

More things a lifestyle Lolita could enjoy

  • Listen to classic musik
  • writing diary
  • holding a monthly "princess day". A princess day is a day on whitch you spoil yourself. I´m planing to write an own post for this.
  • going to flee markets
  • shopping at antique stores
  • studying ettiquette
  • collecting dolls
  • taking a long bath

A last thing I wanted to state is that you do not have to be a lifestyle Lolita to be a "real" Lolita. It´s totally your own decision what you do in your life. Moreover you do not have to like all things on this list to be a lifestyle Lolita. :)

So I hope I gave you an idea of the Lolita lifestyle and if something comes to your mind that could be added to this list I would be happy to do so ~

See you soon,
Yaya ~

    The magic of penpals ~

    Hello my lovely readers!

    I´m very sorry for not posting the last two weeks but I was on holiday and had no internet connection there. But now I´m back and this time I want to write about penpals ~

    In my opinion having penpals is a hobby that goes perfectly with the Lolita lifestyle. It kinda gives you a feeling of living in former times when writing letters was almost the only way to communicate with people living far away. Moreover writing letters allows you to be creative. You can buy cute stationary (or design one on your own) and decorate your writings with stickers and stamps.

    If you like you could afford a quill and some ink and write with these.

    Another aspect I really love about letters is that you can put little presents into the envelope. I penpal of mine for example always sends me tea. She is so lovely <3
    Other goods that could be sent are, for example, drawings, photos, small jewelery and so on ~


    So were can you find a penpal? I use but there are many sites over the internet where you can find one. If you want a Lolita penpal you could join the egl community lolitaletters or loli_of_letters.

    Hello Kitty stamps found on

    If you finaly found one it´s time to develope a friendship. In the first letter I usually introduce myself a bit in detail so the other person knows whom she/he is talking to. After that you can chat about nearly everything. You can tell your penpal what you did lately, what you think about this and that topic and all you feel like talking about. Make sure it is interesting for your penpal though. I also recommend you to not let your penpal wait to long for your answer.

    I wish you all good luck with finding a penpal and as always the most important thing is that you have fun!

    See you soon again,
    Yaya ~
