[FRANCE] Great cities: Paris ♥ part 1

Hello ♥ How are you? 
This is the first part of the report about my trip to Paris, France! It was my first time visiting Paris and I was really excited! Paris is a really beautiful city with lots of interesting places ♥ 
Me and my friends did a lot of sightseeing and visited all the most famous places, but we took the time to discover small and hidden streets as well.  ^__^ 
We spent the first day in Montmartre, discovering many small and pretty shops, streets, etc. and also visiting famous 'Sacre Coeur'.

On the first picture you can see Sacre Coeur, a really beautiful church! From there you have an amazing view over Paris!

 And this was the first time I saw the Eiffel tower ♥ The atmosphere was amazing!

We took a walk through Montmartre and saw so many small shops and artists and everything, I've taken too many pictures for one blog post :D In the evening we fulfilled one of my lifetime dreams and visited the Moulin Rouge ♥♥♥ ^__^ You can see the pictures at the end of this post! I wanted to put them at the end of the post because it was the absolutely best thing! ♥

On the second day we made a sightseeing tour and visited for example Arc de Triomphe, the Opera, Champs Elysees, the Louvre and again the Eiffel tower!

 Someone had altered the station names inside the Metro <3

Closer to the Eiffel tower!

And the Louvre! It was so huuuge! We spent a few hours gazing at world-famous pictures such as the Mona Lisa. For me as an art-obsessed person this was very exciting! ^__^

Arc de Triomphe ~

We found this on a building and I had to take a picture ! ^__^ Oui à l'egalité !!

 And this is me in front of the Eiffel tower!
Outfit rundown:
Shirt: H&M
Skirt: Vintage
Accessoires: 6% dokidoki
Bag: Accessorize

And now to the best part ^__^ Pictures of the 'Moulin Rouge'! I don't know how many many times I watched the Baz Luhrman movie with Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor, it's my most favourite movie ever ^////^ It never fails to make me cry, haha ♥ I know it sounds tacky but for me it was very special to visit this place!

From outside ^__^

And the entrance: 

A poster of the show 'Féerie' ! I was very sad we couldn't visit the show this time but I swear, one day I'll save up enough money and watch a show at the Moulin Rouge!! ^__^

In case you don't know the movie 'Moulin Rouge', here are some pictures! ♥♥ (Pictures taken from Google)

 That's it for now, baby dolls ♥
Part 2 about my trip to Paris will be posted soon, including my visit at the Boddywood store ♥

Shopping: Katie Trianon Collection

Hello darlings ♥ 
I'm back from my first journey this year~  It was my first time in wonderful !Paris! and it was so so so amazing! I'm in love with this city
I will post a report of my trip this weekend I think..

But for now I want to write a short post about one of my most favourite shops in Tokyo: Katie!

Katie is a clothing brand with their main shop located in Tokyo! In the shop description on their website it says: 

"TAKI & LINDA's brand "Katie" was born with its core theme of "Girly & Rock steady".
The collection is inspired by TAKI & LINDA's love of music, movie, artists, punkband.......and more!
Katie seeks a style which has a girl's charm.
any girl has a specially power, that is "pretty" side and "dark" side.
Katie fans are aged between 20-30 and are working girls, fashion people, band girls and many other kind of cult girls!"

Sounds lovely, right? ^__^ This fashion is perfect for me because it's really cute but on the other hand it has a darker, deeper side as well! They just recently released their catalogue for spring/summer 2013 and I want to show you some pictures!  ♣ ♠

 I'm already in love with the 'Trianon' collection ♥ I especially like the dress in the upper left corner.. so lovely! The name reminds me of Marie Antoinette's 'Petit Trianon', a small palace placed in the garden of Versailles (which I visited last week ^__^ ).

They also sell very cute accessories! I want to have one of those KATIE rosettes, they're about 2,730 yen! And I want to try the new perfume as well ! ^////^ It smells like cherries, how sweet is that? 

 more cherries  ♪

I think Risa is a perfect model for this collection, she looks so amazing and she's also the shop staff at KATIE ♥ (Although Amo, who modelled in several previous collections, is also adorable!)

I really recommend you checking out their website for more fashion and updates! They're really popular in Japan right now, especially with girls who like Nadia, etc. They have an own blog too and the photos of Courtney Love, kinderwhore and riot grrl imagery on the shop blog make my feminist heart leap for joy ♥ ♥

So, what do you think of the new collection? Let me know in the comments! ^^

DIY: How to make a Flower Headband

Hi again :) I hope you are all feeling fine and
!! Happy Valentine's Day !!

So, for my new mermaid blog I wanted to do a short tutorial on how I made my flower headband this week ^__^ I think flowers in your hair can make every day a little bit more special ♥ It's really easy to make your own headband and it's also fun, so maybe you want to try it?

 Maybe you have some of these things already around at home ♥

 You can find artificial flowers at arts and craft stores or online!

And this is the result:

finished ♥
with sleep mask ♥
Sleeping Beauty Headdress ♥ I'm going to add ribbon or lace bows to the uncovered part at the back! Maybe I will post pictures where you can see it worn later!

That's it for now xx   I hope you enjoy crafting ♪ ♥

First Post ♥

Hello Lovelies,
this is my first entry on this blog ^////^ I'm excited ~ ♪

2013 will be a busy year for me! I've just finished school  and now I want to do what I've always wanted to do: Travel the world ♥

I've decided to run this blog like a diary ♥ to be able to share all the big and small everyday events with my friends and family and also with... you!!

I'm also a lot into sweet and unusual fashion mostly inspired by the lovely girls from Tokyo and the ones on Tumblr as well ;) So there will be Outfit and Inspirational postings too!

Some of my destinations during the next 12 months will be: Germany ( Berlin,...), France (Paris,...), other European countries, hopefully hopefully Japan and South Korea and at the end of the year the USA ♥ So as you might imagine I'm reeeeally looking forward to it! ^__^

I hope you all will be enjoying this blog! I do my best to keep it updated.

That's it for now, baby dolls xx
