High tea on a Monday because we BAMF

High tea on a Monday because we BAMF

What? high tea on a Monday?! how bizarre! I know right? but hey, my friends and I are all students/shift workers so Monday happens to be a rather good day to catch up for most of us. I was in such a rush that morning (I finish work at 8am Monday mornings) I was super surprised at how well I pulled this coordinate together. I was still running around in a state of undress when my friends started arriving so we could leave together.

Coordinate details

Shoes: Bait Footwear

Stockings: bought from a friend

Dress: Fancy Paper Dolls by Angelic Pretty

Blouse: TaoBao

Cardigan: Target

Bag: Angelic Pretty

Belt: Ebay

Head Bow: Angelic Pretty

I was so pleased with how my hair came out, especially since I came up with the style entirely by accident. I was going to put my hair in twin buns, but I got distracted halfway through putting them up (the doorbell rang!) and thought it looked really cute with some hair hanging down, so i just left it like that. Yay for accidental cute hairstyles!

As stated before, we headed to Pressed Tin Cafe in the city. Corrina had managed to get us a big groupon deal so it ended up being only about 15 per head for the high tea. Not to bad if you ask me, and the best part is – they did gluten-free. Even better, their gluten-free stuff was actually good. For savoury I got sandwiches, sausage roll and some curry puffs. For dessert a little plate containing Chocolate brownie, passion fruit cheesecake and 2 tiny orange cupcakes. My only complaint is that they didn’t have any GF scones. I love scones!

Chelsea was pretty happy with the food offering for the non gluten intolerant.

Pressed Tin isn’t just a cafe, it also happens to be a rather lovely furniture store as well. They have so many lovely things its always fun to walk through and take a thousand photos. I found this couch during our wonder and my gosh I wish I had space in my house so I could take it home. It was just the perfect shade of pink and so comfy too. I think we were made for each other. Maybe one day it will be mine.

Me with my lovely friends Ashleigh and Chelsea. Aren’t they cuties?

Corrina and I fell in love with the derpy look on this little pugs face, we just had to pose with it!

For a Monday, That was a pretty good day!

PAX Aus 2015

PAX Aus 2015

PAX-AUS-2015

I can’t believe it has taken me so long to get to this since PAX Aus was in the beginning of November last year! But hey, like I always say, better late than never right? 😛 So here is how it all went down…

Day One

PAX 2015 1

I was so excited to wear this coordinate for the first day of PAX! Mostly, because I had just got my fancy paper dolls set in the mail a few days before we left, and I hadn’t had a chance to wear it yet. It was a dream dress get, so I was super pleased it arrived in time!

PAX 2015 6

We spent most of the first day walking around the main room just looking at all the stuff. They had this cool super Mario brothers set up, I just had to get a photo in the pipe! There were so many huge stalls and big name games in the main hall that Mr Tardo and I were like kids in a candy store 😛 We spent most of the first day just wandering around looking at stuff.

PAX 2015 5

We did however go to one panel. It was game of D&D, with Audience participation.  It only went or about an hour, but I was in stitches the whole time. I was hilarious!  They had us live tweeting idea’s for each character using the #liveRPGplus has tag, here was some of my input:

I also found a place nearby that made truly amazing caramel macaroons. I was naughty and went back and got one every day, and by the end of the holiday one of the guys working there recognized me and gave me a second one for free ^_^ yay Macaroons!

I managed to snap the strap on the shoes I was wearing halfway through the day, so I headed back to the hotel for an outfit change. Which then turned into playing with my newly purchased head set, and having a nap 😛

PAX 2015 7

Day Two

Day two I was in such a rush to get out the door (Mr Tardo was adamant he wanted to get there early), that I completely forgot to take an outfit shot! This is the only selfie I managed to get when I remembered later on in the day 😛 I wore my adorable blue toy parade mini skirt, my tea party blouse and a pink cardigan.

PAX 2015 21

Since we were up early, Mr Tardo and I, and a few of the friends we were sharing our apartment with went out for breakfast 🙂

PAX 2015 8 PAX 2015 9

Most of the second day for me was spent playing board games, and running around collecting QR codes. I managed to find them all last year, but alas I missed 2 of them this year.

PAX 2015 12

Zombiecide was one of my favourite games of the day. I had heard so much about it, and it did not disappoint!

Day Three

For the last day I decided to go all out on the coordinate, so OTT sweet with my pink Milky Planet was what i decided to wear. I have the matching everything for my milky planet set, including the super adorable upside down ice cream headband ^_^

PAX 2015 14

The sunday was a big day for cosplay, but strangely enough I didn’t take all that many photos. Our two friend Tom and Katey went as waring DOTA characters, just because they thought it would be cute to walk around holding hands dressed as them. I am so sorry, but I cannot actually remember the characters names! There was also this hilarious  “Floreda” cosplay from the Simpsons that I just had to get a photo of it was so great.

PAX 2015 10PAX 2015 11

The only panel we made it to on the last day was “The worst games ever created” panel. They were all x-box games, and included titles such as duke nuke’m and star trek the game. Pimp my ride kinda won as the worst game ever though. It was pretty funny watching the guest panelists play them though.

PAX 2015 13

On the last day I finally ran into some other Lolita’s, who all looked just stunning and were lovely to chat with. Charlotte in the middle is actually from the Adelaide Comm 🙂

PAX 2015 15

After lunch Katy and I decided to ditch the boys and go try out the “Paint n Take”.

PAX 2015 16

I picked what looked like some sort of sorcerer, and of course painted her all in pin and purple. Katy went for more of a warrior, but he had to be pink also 😛

PAX 2015 17 PAX 2015 18 PAX 2015 19

Then of course we ended the day off with some more board games. I forget the name of this one, although it was quite similar to Incan Gold, was super fun and the art work was so pretty.

PAX 2015 20

Just as they were starting to kick us out, I got talking into buying a little card game called “F**k, the game” which is a little card game that uses colours and swear words to help train your brain. I am so glad I bought it, it’s so funny to play, especially with drunk people.

And that was PAX Australia for 2015! Mr Tardo and I have already got our tickets for next year, as it is becoming a rather un missable event for us! 🙂

My Lolita Wardrobe

My Lolita Wardrobe

My-Lolita-Wardrobe

I have finally gotten around to creating a page dedicated to my wardrobe! You will find a link to the page in the main menu up above or, you could just

BTSSB pink Snow white print OP Emily Temple Cute Pink Roses OP AP yellow Strawberries and Ribbons OP AP pink Milky Planet JSK

Click here

ETC Sweets Patiserie JSK AP Lavendar fancy paper dolls JSK AP Chess Chocolate low waisted JSK We're all made here pink betty skirt

I thought having a page instead of a post would be best, as it makes the wardrobe easier to find, and easier for me to update as I get new things and sell old things. I will be updating it super soon, as I just purchased AP’s Crystal Dream Carnival!

So far I have only added all of my dresses and skirts but I plan to very soon as photos of my shoes, and bag collection (Which upon inspection is actually a whole lot bigger than I thought it was). Hope you enjoy it!
