Gosh this was a little while ago now, but was such a lovely day. My lovely loli friend Corina decided to have a high tea meet at Just Tickled Pink for her birthday, and there was a nice little group of 7 of us who attended. As usual, I decided to wear a rather pink co-ordinate to go with the theme of the cafe, and when I arrived i found I matched the decor rather nicely 😛
Upon arrival, they gave us a glass of this sparkling berry something. It was delicious, but I was a little disappointed it wasn’t champagne!
As always, I got my very own tray of gluten-free treats. It was definitely better than some of the other attempts at gluten free I have been given, as everything was delicious! There was GF sandwiches, sausage rolls and a little salmon quiche for savory, and a cupcake, cookie and banana cake for sweets. I would have loved to see some gluten-free scones, but everything was so yummy it more than made up for not having any.
One of the ladies that worked there was walking around with a gorgeous looking giant silver teapot, that looked rather vintage, and kept filling up our tea cups. This made me happy as I love drinking endless amounts of tea, as you know. Much gossiping was done before we finished eating, but then we discovered they had an even pinker room out the back for functions, so we head out there for some of our group photos.
Much silliness and selfies followed, as well as the customary group and outfit shots. I hope Corina enjoyed her birthday, because I sure did!
Gosh that title is a mouthful! But that was the name of the newbie lolita meet that I went to yesterday during our labor day public holiday 🙂 At first I wasn’t sure if I was going to make it as my parents had left me the task of taking their puppy to the airport so he could fly up and join them at our holiday house (I know right? Spoilt dog…). The meet started at 12, and I had to take the dog in at 1.45, and was pretty sure they all would have left by the time I was done. Lucky for me I was smart enough to ask on the Facebook page, and was told people were definitely still there. So in the car I got and headed to the city for a lolita make over. I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting myself into, but boy am I glad I went! It was so much fun!
When I first walked in, I was one of the few people not already done up in lolita. So I shyly went up to one of the girls doing hair and asked what the deal was. Once it was publicly known that I was happy to be told what to wear, I was pounced on by a few very lovely girls handing me petticoats dresses and accessories before being sent off in the direction of the change room.
The girls picked out this dress, which is strawberry fields by Angelic pretty, as well as these adorable pink shoes. Once I had it on, it was hair and hat time. Naturally I needed a wig as my short brown/red hair just didn’t suit the outfit.
So now I had the hair and the bonnet on to match (which made me miss my old pink hair soooooo much :'( ), it was time for make up! I already had a bit on, so a dash of yellow eye shadow, followed by some pink glitter and I was all set!
Naturally it wouldn’t be a lolita meet without about a thousand photos, so I got to have a bit of a pose for the camera…
And then a big group photo! We took so many, that by the time we were done my feet were going numb from sitting on them.
All in all it was a wonderful day spent feeling adorable and meeting some wonderful new people. The worst part? Having to give back the dress at the end 😛 Strawberry fields is now on my wish list, so hopefully I will own it one day!
