Mini-Haul and great News

Hello again ;)

I did some shopping the last days but as I am saving for something big at the moment I only bought some small trinkets and stuff...I still didn't receive everything I ordered online but for now here is what I got the last couple of days :3

A headwarmer-thingy from Angelic Pretty - bought it Second Hand at Closet Child. I will probably wear it to our Christmas Meet in around 2 weeks :3 I love the little bows on the side <3

Two necklaces from ebay - Both were only 1,50€ *yay* I bought it at Joytownonline. They have many cheap at cute pieces but the quality can be really bad for some items...the necklaces I got are pretty sturdy though ^.^ Also bought some awesome Chocomint Spoon Earrings at Closet Child :3 Aren't they the cutest?

Loads of Showergel xD the Nivea one is from the regular line and I forgot the name xD DuschDas Winter Beauty is a Limited Edition so I bought three because I love the scent <3 Baleas Sweet Wonderland is also a Limited Edition and it smells like chocolate pudding *_* And of course I also got me some Zuckerschnute Deodorant as I am a sucker for that particular scent xD Last but not least I bought a mild shampoo that is actually meant for little girls. It is called Sternenzauber and it helped my scalp a great deal so far ^^b

What did you get during the last weeks? Did you get something big or also only some small things?

Oh~ I nearly forgot about my big news *duh*

I will go to Japan for two weeks in April - that is the reason I am only buying smaller stuff because I will need all the money I can get to do some shopping in Japan *haha*

Hope you have a nice day <3

Le Cirque de Rêves

Hello my sweeties <3

As I promised some time ago here is the review of "Night Circus" by Erin Morgenstern :)

The backcover says: "The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway - a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them both, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love - a deep magical love that makes the lights flikcer and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands."

First thing I have to say: OMG, that book is so awesome and I am so sad that it was over so soon...well, that it is over. well, as I started reading it the style of writing was hard to follow at first but after some pages I was so sucked into the story that I forgot the world around me xD At some point I really smelled the circus...that might be kinda creepy but that is hown enchanting the book was for me. The characters were developed really great and you really felt for them. I was laughing with them, angry or really sad. This book turned in to my favourite book faster than I had expected - I highly recommend that you read it and enjoy a magical journey through the Circus of Dreams <3

The rose has secret scent

Hello my sweeties <3

Long time no post ^^" Sorry for my absence but the last days were really busy with work and a fashion show at an anime convention that we organized...I will post more about that later but first I want to show you the new print by Baby *O* It is so beautiful and I want it so so so much *sighs* If only I had the money at the moment...it is so gorgeous <3 It is called "秘密の花園(Secret Garden) -  The rose has secret scent" It is a classic sweet print with a flair of distant times...I really fell in love with it at first sight <3 <3 <3 But here are some pictures from the homepage to show you what I am talking about :3

 
 I can't decide which colorway I like better - ivory or mint/blue...and I really like both JSK versions *_*
Gorgeous hed dress <3

So, what do you think about the new print? You like it or not so much?

Have a nice day~

It smells like marzipan~

Hello my sweethearts <3 

So, last weekend I went to Franconia to visit koo-chan, as I wasn't able to attend her birthday *sad face* To make up for it we actually planned to take some autumn pictures but the weather planned otherwise xD So we had no other choice as to go shopping (as if XD) But we still took some pictures of our outfits although they didn't came out as good as it was already getting darker and mobile cams aren't that great with darkness ^^" You can find koo-chans entry about our shopping trip here.

Here is a more or less good picture of my outfit ;) It took me a while to figure out how to put my wig up like this...at first I tried one strand of hair at a time until koo-chan told me that she just puts her hair up by trial and error and sees if it looks good...so I did the same and ~tadaa~ it worked ^^b I also tried out my Blooming Garden-headbow for the first time...and it only works with a wig, else your head gets eaten xDD
JSK/Headbow: Metamorphose - Cardigan/Blouse: Bodyline - Shoes: Secret Shop - Tights: C&A - Necklace/Earrings: Chocomint - Roses: Claires 

Close-up of the print...so gorgeous <3

And here is what I got myself :3 Just a tiny haul~
Earrings for one Euro each bought at KIK...I tried on the ones with the pearls and the pear suddenly came of after one hour...so quality isn't that great but not a big loss for the money ;)

Perfume by Essence called "like a first day in spring" for only 6 Euro *yay* It smells really florally and fresh...love that scent ^^b And also a pen-thingy for eyeshadows xD

Shower Gel and Bodylotion by Balea...it is the winter Limited Edition and it smells so so so great <3 Especially the version with Cherry and Almond :) That is my favourite~ As always you can find Balea at any dm-drugstore.

Thanks for reading!
Hope you have a nice day~

October Favourites :3

Hello there~

recently I have been watching many many vlogs and among all those videos some especially caught my attention: The ones where people talk about their monthly favourites :) And as I think this is a great way to get some inspiration I also want to share my favourites, not only in beauty but in general.

1. Fairytales (old and new ones ;D)
If you love the old-fashioned circus that still keeps its mysteries you should definitely read that book :)
Grimms Fairytales...autumn (and winter) are the time for fairytales in my opinion :) Got this awesome book for only 5 Euro at the bookstore...I love the design. They made it look ragged on purpose and that gives it yet another special charm.
