Top 3 - Mecha Anime

Hello sweeties <3

I decided to start a new series on my blog so I will get to blog more frequently from now on. I see so many Top 10 or something around the internet lately, may it be on youtube or other blogs and so I thought "Why not do something like that myself?". But finding a Top 10 isn't so easy most of the time so I thought I start small and make it a Top 3 ^^b And as I am hooked on anime again I will start with an Anime Top 3. So here they come: My Top 3 Mecha Anime ^o^

1. Neon Genesis Evangelion (新世紀エヴァンゲリオン)

I am sure many of you already know what the story is about but I still want to give you a synopsis ;) The story is set in 2015, 15 years after the 2nd Impact which nearly destroyed the whole world. Mankind is trying to fend of the "Angels (Apostels)" with Mecha called the Evangelions that can only be piloted by special Children born after the 2nd Impact.
Why did I chose it? Well, my "synopsis" didn't even scratch the interesting part of the show...I have to admit I am superbad at describing a story though xD Anyways, the show has so many layers and you can find parts of yourself in nearly every character. Aaaaaand it was the 1st Mecha Anime I ever watched - that counts for something, right?

2. Gundam 00

I get the feeling that nearly every Gundam-Anime has kind of the same storyline. There are two opposing countries etc. and there is a war and the Gundams should stop that war...or not? You never know in the beginning why the Gundam were created. That said even though the story is pretty generic I love the characters and the dynamic between them ^^b

3. Genesis of Aquarion (創世のアクアリオン)

This anime is just awesome. Lovers kept apart by time promising to meet even after 1000 years. Mankind on the brink of extinction and only the Aquarion to save them - what can you want more from an Anime? Certainly not the sequel Aquarion Evol >.< While Genesis of Aquarion was EPIC the sequel was just...well, lets say it doesn't exist in my world T^T

So, are you watching Mecha Anime? I have to admit I don't watch them frequently and I am more into mystery and stuff but when I find an awesome Mecha Anime I binge-watch it XD

Hope you have a nice day <3

Forever Love~

Hello sweeties <3

You might already guess what this entry is about from the title but for the ones who have never heard of Yoshiki and X-Japan this would be a pretty hard guess ;) I went to the Yoshiki Classical concert in Berlin on the 23rd of May and it was one of the most amazing experiences in my life. I know Yoshikis music for nearly 14 years now and I finally got the chance to see him live - it was breathtaking. The concert was so emotional for me...I laughed, I cried - I was just happy to be part of this whole experience...and I have to admit, at the beginning of the year I was not quite sure if I would go because the tickets and flights to Berlin were rather expensive but than a good friend convinced me and I regret nothing :D 


TT^TT I have to cry everytime I watch this video - not only because of the intimate scenes shown on the big screen but also because Yoshiki was so emotional in announcing this song - He told us that he composed this song for the loved ones he lost, naming his father, hide and Taiji and also told us that "Give all your love to the people you love while you can". He also played "Wind of Change" out of the blue and said that he wanted to play it because Berlin reminded him of that song - I was so speechless and again I cried x"D And another highlight for me was Art of Life - for those who know me also know that this is the song of my life, there is no song that I love more than this one and Yoshiki played it at the concert *happy*- you cannot imagine how much I love Yoshiki and how proud I am that he made it this far - he is such an amazing person <3 <3 <3

Shall we dance?

Hello sweeties <3

How are you? The weather has been pretty awesome the last few days and I start believing in the possibility of a great summer this year ^O^ To enjoy the good weather and to celebrate my birthday me and some friends went to the Rosensteinpark in Stuttgart to take some pcitures...but when we arrived we were approached by nice people in medieval gowns who invited us to dance :3 And this is what we did *points down* They also told us that they are doing this kind of event on a regular basis and we promisd to come visit them again :D

Thanks to Deddi for this really nice picture...really love how it is taken out of the moment <3

Don't criticize but love yourself!

Hello sweeties <3 

Today I want to talk about a topic that is really important to me and that has followed me around since forever (literally xD) - I am talking about how I perceive myself, especially how I perceive my body. I will be honest - even though I find women beautiful in every size and even though I think there is NO size to beauty...even though I have this kind of mindset I can't seem to apply that mindset to myself. I am pretty confident that from another persons point of view I am not to fat, I might even be considered beautiful but when I look in the mirror I see all my imperfections magnified - and I think a lot of girls/women out there have the exact same problem. And honestly, I don't want to hate myself every time I look in the mirror - but unfortunately my subconcious decided that it is more important what the whole world perceives as beautiful than what I feel is beautiful.

In light of this way of thinking about myself I am really glad that out there in the world are women like Taryn Brumfitt, who have experienced the same thoughts and feelings towards here body as I did and who want to change something about the way we and the world see women of different shapes - therefore I am sharing the below video. Not only to show others that everyone is beautiful whatever the shape or size but also to show myself that I don't have to be size 0 to feel beautiful ^.^

The link to the original video here.

Another really nice video that I just today stumbled across is some kind of "guide" on how to boost your self-confidence whatever size/shape you are...seriousely, we need more people thinking like that: The only one who can truly make us happy are we ourselves...and the most important thing to do that is with starting to love ourselves 100% without criticizing ourselves every single moment~


I wish you a wonderful day <3

Pink Marshmallow

Hello sweeties <3

On Saturday I was invited to the birthday of my dear friend Lady Atropa. For this occassion I decided to go full out again and wear all pink and roses :3 As I didn't really know how to style my wig I just put it up somehow and out came something rather cool. If you want to have a tutorial for this hairstyle just tell me in the comments ;)

I really love the JSK...actually I only bought it because of the name in the end. I wasn't sure if I liked it enough or not but I was sold by the name x"D I am really that much of a f***ing fangirl *hahaha*

And of course you can never have enough rose prints in your wardrobe, right?

I really love that hairdo...I will probably do it more often in the future :3

JSK: Baby the stars shine bright
Blouse: Bodyline
Cardigan: Bodyline
OTKs: Innocent World
Shoes: Custom House
Headband: Vanillas Traumfabrik
Belt: ebay
Wig: Lockshop

Have a nice day everyone <3

I fell in love with DreamV~

Hello sweeties <3

Alice has been a bad bad blogger but she is promising to post more again starting NOW *muahahaha* The last weeks were really busy but from now on I will do better ;) And I am gonna start with a shop that caught my attention thanks to my dear friend Vanilla :3 She posted some links on facebook and as it often is I scrolled through the webshop and ordered some things. The shop is called DreamV and you can get really cute Japanese Gyaru items there *fufufu* Unfortunately you can't buy the things directly as they only ship within Japan but there are great shopping services out there ^^v I used Tokyopirates to get the things - I will write a review about the shopping service and DreamV when I received my goodies :3 But today I want to show you what I ordered :D

 Cute Ribbon Sandals in white and Romantic Lace Sandals in Babypink <3 I really needed some new sandals as mine are pretty old already x"D And I think even though these two pairs are rather high they seem really coomfortable...also I love wearing Wedges :3
