I'm totally in love with Fairy Kei! Although, this isn't full blown Fairy Kei I was actually going to work so I've toned it down.
My accessories are from the kids section at H&M and www.kawaiigoods.com

Are you a slave to brands???

I've recently been having an ongoing debate over Facebook with a few Lolitas over clothing brands.

Basically, a Facebook retailer has created an online event to find out who would be interested in replica Lolita dresses and this was a comment on the page which caught my eye.....

"I hate these replicas, I think people should stop buying these. I have no idea why i was invited. It's 100% against all i love."

This comment made my blood boil.
Now, what she was referring to was a replica of an Angelic Pretty dress and I LOVE that brand but to be honest I could never afford to buy one.
I have talked online to a lot of Lolitas (this trend has not quite hit the Scottish Highlands) most of which were lovely! However, there seems to be a few suffering from 'brand snobbery'..... almost stating that If you don't buy these brands your not In the 'gang'.

I'd love to know what your thoughts! Are brand names important to you?

Aberdeen Shenanaigans!

Hey guys!!
What a fab weekend I've had, hope you guys had fun too!
Although, It didn't start out as promising ......

My sister Katie and I had planned to go through to Aberdeen on Friday so I could treat her to a night out and get her her prom dress! Everything had been booked and I even managed to move my clients so that I could finish a bit earlier on the Friday to make sure that we got the train on time from Inverness.

Friday morning came and I woke up to this......

Now this might not look bad but If there's snow in Inverness It's guaranteed to be rubbish everywhere else! Haha!
So I was panicking that we were not going to make it through and with the hotel and train tickets already paid for it was too late to get a refund!
However, we managed as the trains where running but some of the roads were closed.

Once we got to Aberdeen, my Friend Lisa met us off the train and after checking in etc it was time to get the glad-rags on and hit the town for a girlie night out! :D

The gang....although I'm not sure who the girl in the stripy dress is, Haha!

The next morning I took Katie shopping! Where we met a very familiar face......

We got her this beautiful dress which was very vintage looking!!! (I'll post pictures soon it's TO DIE for trust me!)
We also came across this funky Japanese shop called Na-Na. They sell clothes, accessories and also have a Hime nail bar!!!! We didn't have enough time to get our nails done (Is it sad that I'm planing my next trip through just to get my nails done?lol) but we did get matching Kawaii Necklaces......

The shop owner Leyla is fantastic! Not only does she make these little treasures by hand, she also does custom requests.
The first item I bought, I'd asked Leyla to custom make.......

Saturday Night Shenanigans!

This is me and my mate Cara.(She looked sooooo cute as little red riding hood)
I love these contact lenses! I was a bit gutted that my fangs didn't stay in....all I was left with was a thin lining of Fixadent round my mouth. Nice.

Me and my mates John and Susan before we hit the pubs. They were dressed as Dark Angels, we had such a laugh!
I can't wait for next year already!
