London travel diary - part 5

So here is the last but one part of my travel diary :D This time I want to write about Camden Market, a place to shop I enjoyed very much.

In Camden Market you can find sale booths and shops with unconventional goods. From goth, to cyber punk, to vintage fashion you can find everything. In one shop I even discovered a very loliable dress which I didn't buy though ~

The shops in Camden also had very interesting fronts:

Shoes everywhere ~

While we were in Camden we also saw a rainbow. That was so nice 

Another interesting thing (at least for me) about Camden was the food they sell there. They provide an huge variety of kitchens from different continents. We ate something Jamaican if I remember it right :D

Anybody of you who had been in Camden before?

London travel diary - part 4

So my London travel diary continues. Today I want to show pictures of other two shops I really enjoyed: The Disney Shop and The Moomin Shop :D

Little My 

Me holding Moomin's hand  I'm sorry for the strange light in the pic. 

The Moomin shop was rather small and sadly also rather expensive, so I didn't buy anything. However I really enjoyed the wall decoration. 

The Disney Shop mostly provided clothes for children. However on one floor the had a lot of merchandising and I was pretty close to buy a Snow White doll. I didn't buy it in the end though ~

This travel diary will have one or two more posts until I'm finished.  I also have a little DIY project to share with you soon, so stay tuned!

Tagged again :D

I'm just taking a short break in all the London posts - I'm not finished yet!

Natz Schaf tagged me on her blog. Like last time I will translate the questions from German to English freely and I won't tag any new people.

1. Welche Gefühle verbindest du mit der Adventszeit und Weihnachten? Which feelings do you associate with Christmas and Advent? 
Generally very positive and warm feelings. I'm excited for Christmas every year^^

2. Würdest du dich in die Abwasserkanalisation einer Stadt begeben? Natürlich entsprechend ausgerüstet. Would you go into the canalization of a city if you had the right equipment
Rather not. I'm not sure what I should do there xD

3. Glaubst du daran, dass durch Politik/Wählen gehen etwas geändert werden kann? Do you think politics/ casting a vote can change something?
Well I know that not casting a vote will change nothing so there is a chance that doing so will change something  ~

4. Was ist dein Lieblingsname? What's your favourite name?
I don't really have a favourite name.

5. Glaubst du an Übersinnliches? Do you believe in supernatural phenomena?
Yes I do. I think there is more to this planet than we can see with our eyes ~

6. Welches Buch hast du zuletzt gelesen? Which was the last book you read?
I'm currently reading 'Jane Eyre'. 

7. Was hälst du von Leuten, die an Gott glauben bzw einer Glaubensrichtung angehören, und aus Überzeugung dahinter stehen? What do you think about people who believe in God or a certain religion and follow it by conviction?
If they think it's the right way for them why not? As long as the don't want to force others to follow their believes I'm perfectly fine with it. 

8. Wann warst du zuletzt stolz auf dich? When was the last time you were proud of yourself?
Today^^ I'm currently working part time and today my boss told me that she thinks that I'm doing my work fine :D

9. Tust du was "für die Umwelt"? Do you take actions to care for the environment?I do the usual things like separating waste, turning of devices and appliances when I don't need them anymore, saving water where possible and so one. I also go by public transport most of the time. I want to do more in the future though ~ I'm actually pretty concerned about the environment. 

10. Welche Ziele hast du für dein Leben? What are your goals for life?
I don't really have big goals for my life. I'm rather a person who has smaller goals for shorter periods. However I hope I can live a life were I can decide what I want to do and don't get too forced by the whole system we are living in.

London travel diary - part 3

On our first day in London we spontaneously decided to pay a visit to Hyper Japan, an anime convention that took place on that weekend in London.

In contrast to Austrian conventions they had a big focus on fashion at Hyper Japan. They sold a lot of brand Lolita stuff. Nothing I could afford though ~
(Sorry for the yellowish pictures, the lightning at the convention was rather strange :/ )

As we went to the convention spontaneously I hadn't planed an outfit for it. I tried to look as cute as my suitcase made it possible ^^

They had an Animal Crossing and Nintendo Corner which I found pretty cool :D

Real life Luigi 

And some random guy posing with Luigi XD

A cute alpaca. In the shop behind they had Lolita clothes, shoes, wigs, everything ~

On the stage we watched a fashion show.

There also was a little concert. I didn't know the singer before though  Her name is Jun*chi! 

I enjoyed Hyper Japan quite much. Maybe I will go there again some day ^^

Have a nice day,

London travel diary - part 2

Here is part two of my London travel dairy. This time I want to share one of my personal highlights of that week - The M&M's World! 

We went there on the second day- or better said we randomly came across it ~

The shop is super huge. It had three or four floors full of merchandising and sweets. 

The Entrance

Bus driver M&M :D

This was fully made of M&M's 

Cute graphic on the wall 

Some kind of gallery ^^

Of course we couldn't resist to buy a few things from the shop. Besides sweets we bought matching M&M bags which I can imagine very well in a kawaii-fairy kei like outfit. ^u^ 

Stay tuned for the other parts of this series 
See you next time,

London travel diary - part 1

As promised I'm writing a little travel diary about the week I spent in London with my dear friend AppleHeadAngel I'm going to split it in several parts. 
For the first part I want to share pictures of sights we visited and some general impressions of London. 

Big Ben - first day 

London Eye - last day 

Picadilly Circus - second day

St.Paul's Cathedral - third day

I enjoyed the week in London very much. We had a lot of fun and it was great to see all the sights I heard about in school so often in real life. The people in London were all very nice and helpful. Shopping in London was also great. They have so many cool and creative shops like they can't be found in Austria. 

National Gallery in the background 

Shard Tower - first day

Underground Sign - first day

Tower Bridge - first day 

Sadly we weren't able to enter all the sights. However we visited Madame Tussauds, London Eye, National Gallery, The British Museum, Tate Modern and we paid a visit to an Anime Convention. We took a sight seeing tour by bus and a river cruise. We watched the change of the guard, went shopping at Oxford Street and at Camden (with I enjoyed even more ♥), took a stroll trough China Town and, as sated before, watched a movie at the cinema. 
At the end of the week our feet hurt as hell but it was all worth it 

Stay tuned for the other parts of this series 
Until then,

Liebster Award - I got tagged again ~

This time I will answer Punkangels question but I won't tag any new people. Her questions are in German so I will translate them freely.

1. Wie gehört deine Pizza belegt? What do you like on your Pizza?

I like to go to concert but music festivals are not my cup of tea.

5. Was wissen die meisten Leute nicht über dich? What do most people not know about you?

Vienna Summer Meet up

I'm sorry for the lack of posts for the last two weeks but I was on holiday without a proper Internet connection. I plan to post a little London diary soon but there still needs to be some photo editing done.
For today I want to share pictures of the latest Lolita Meet up I attended.

It was super hot that day so I skipped the blouse and wore a T-shirt instead and styled my own hair instead of relying on a wig. 

During the Meet-up we visited an art exhibition and went to an Asian restaurants afterwards. 

This was the whole group. We also had a special guest - La Carmina, a famous blogger who filmed us for some kind of documentation ~

It was a fun day and I enjoyed chatting with friends and also meeting some new people :3

See you next time,
