Netherlands Day 7-11


This is the last part of my journey to the Netherlands. I want to go back already! (;´д` )

On the seventh day we went to Den Haag~ Irene introduced me to lots of cheap-ish shops! I love cheap shops in NL. We had lunch at Dutch fries with peanut sauce, mayonaise and onion. Love it! (σ^▽^)σ

We ate dessert at a place called Cheescake Company! I had summer berries cheesecake~

In a side street we found a cute Asian accessories shop! I bought quite some stuff there. (●>v<●)

Here's what I got:

Crafty stuff and lovely stickers~

Cute drippy strawberry keychain mirror and a nice cross necklace! ♪(゚▽^*)ノ⌒☆

Lovely ear piercings and a sailor-esque brooch~


On Monday we stayed at home playing games on the Playstation and doing crafty stuff~ I drafted some patterns for bigger sized BJDs.

That day I also had to send away some stuff I bought in NL because my luggage would've been overweight if not. Lol~ (*^_^;)


Tuesday was a day I've been really looking forward to! I met up with my friends Gerby and Mika and we went on a shopping spree in Amsterdam.
I kinda regret not bringing the cam to that trip..

I bought some nice cardigans at River's Island. God I LOVE that shop! Still need to take pics~

After some time walking through Amsterdam, to several clothes, books and shoe stores we had dinner at some random asian-esque whatever place! The food there was.. okay.
I had some weird soup with egg and rice and fried rice with chicken.

After that we thought it'd be fun to go have some cocktails at a bar. Of course I had to take the cocktail with the most ridiculous name ever: Red Panties.
(>ω<*)ノ ♥

I had lots of fun that day! Was nice to meet people you only know via the interwebz in person!~


Time passed by so quickly and it was the 13th already. That day I had to pack my suitcase and get some cheese prezzies! My plane left at 9.40 pm-ish.

While waiting at the airport I got myself some iced café latte at Starbucks.

My plane had some delay and I arrived at around 11.30 pm-ish in Munich.
I finally got home at 3 am. Ugh~~ Exhausing trip!


I really enjoyed my stay in NL and it was so nice meeting new people there! I also really liked the landscape: FLATNESS! haha~ However I want to go there again sometime!

Thanks for reading!

On the spotlight: Kyary Pamyu Pamyu

Hey there fellow blog readers!


I decided to do a spotlight post on the japanese model/singer/student Kyary Pamyu Pamyu - "The new face of Harajuku"!

I think a lot of people actually heard her debut song by now. How can you not? So I decided to do a little bit more research on Kyary, since I've been admiring her funny personality for quite some time! If you haven't seen the MV yet, here it is! (*≧▽≦)

I first found out about Kyary through tumblr. I saw her in several street fashion shots and I really liked her overall appearance. Her style is really experimental and refreshing! She's like a fashion icon~ Kyary was born on the 29th of January 1993 in Tokyo. She's known for her funny personality and she loves sharing silly photos of herself on her blog!

Kyary models for fashion magazines like Zipper and KERA and she's been discovered on the street. However she is also promoting the eyelashes brand "Harajuku Doll by Eyemazing"!

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu runs a blog *clicky* on Ameba~ She said she wants to bring a revolution to the fashion industry. I hope she'll succeed!~~

She is inspired by Katy Perry's world and her skin is naturally white. Lucky her! As I mentioned before she loves to make funny faces.

However recently Kyary released her debut single PONPONPON. It's been produced by Perfume and Capsule main man Yasutaka Nakata. So that makes her music sound kinda Perfume-y but I don't mind that! Her first mini-album "Moshi Moshi Harajuku" , which will be released on August 17, 2011. I'm really looking forward to that! ♪(ノ´∀`*)ノ And did you know that the set-up of the MV was designed by 6%dokidoki designer Sebastian? So cool!

Oh and in case you want to watch PONPONPON over and over again and sing along, like me, visit this page: *clicky*!!

I hope you're inspired by Kyary as much as I am! d(⌒o⌒)b

Netherlands Day 4-6


On the 4th day of my journey to the Netherlands we went to Amsterdam!
Sadly I didn't bring my cam and my mobile's battery died so I couldn't take many pictures! (*´ο`*)=3

When we arrived there we went into a cheese shop!

Lol so typical Dutch! (^□^*)

We also had the most delicious aiju kurimu with whipped cream flavour!

And afterwards we went to the most amazing fabric store I've ever been to! I bought so much stuff thereeee~~ (*´ο`*)=3

Here's what I got in Amsterdam:

Cutesy Disney bags and random stuff

Pastell-y and white lace and trims!

Black lace and ribbons~


Friday was one of the days I was really looking forward to!
We had a high tea dolly meet~~

However I went to the Haagse Markt with Steff to buy some fabrics and lace. It was really cool there as well (ノ^_^)ノ

Here's my loot!

Cute satin ribbons, lace, pompom trim and some fabrics~

Afterwards we went to the high tea place near the beach in Den Haag! The weather was acting kind of weird. Windy and rainy. Glad we were insideee~

It was soo cool to meet some people I've only knows from dolly communities in real life! ☆ミ(o*・ω・)ノ I had a great time!~~

Now doesn't that look lovely?

My redone Ichigo Pullip by solarsenshi being the strawberry-ish cream topping~

Of course I brought Rielle as well~

Maaike gave us the sweetest presents ever! Totally adorable, innit? ♪

After the high tea some of us went to Irene's place and we had a singstar x pizza party! So much fun ~~ ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ


On Saturday we didn't really do much. We just went out doing groceries and buying some stuff in Den Haag. Of course I went crazy while shopping..
( ̄ー ̄)

We spent the rest of the day doing crafty stuff and chilling around~

Lots of beads, funny fox tails and stationery!

More parts to come~~

Netherlands Day 1-3

Hello thereee!

I'm finally back from the Netherlands and I had a great time there meeting new people and getting to know people I've known for quite some time online for real! O(≧∇≦)O

My journey to the airport started on the 3rd of July at 3.30 am. I arrived quite early at the airport so I had lots of time to check the airport and go to several shops. The plane took off at 9.10 am~

When I arrived at 10.30-ish my friend Irene was already waiting for me and we went to a BJD-meet right after we dropped my luggage at her placeee. I had a lot of fun at the doll meet! I'm glad people spoke English to me, lol.

We had some snacks while meeting up with our BJDs in some park! I got to know new people there which was really cool! And I tried out Stroopwafels for the first time. ( ̄▽ ̄)ノ

Here's a pic of Irene's SD16 Kira, my PW Goldie, a Supiadoll Rosy and an Unoa Ange!

I took this pic of Rielle, my Goldie! Love her to bits~~


On the 2nd day we went to Den Haag to do some shopping! We started with lunch at Bagels&Beans! I loveeed it~

I had an awesome iced green tea!~

And a bagel with lettuce, mustard and ham!

Den Haag was really nice to do some shopping! I also really enjoyed the architecture.

I also spent quite some money on that day already. Lol~ (。・_・。)σ
Here's what I got in Den Haag!

Some lovely bags, a tool to make nice fabric roses, some deco items and pink wooden clogs!

I also got some mochi with lycee and sesame flavour. And some Copic blending paper! Can't wait to use it.


On the 3rd day we didn't go out! We stayed at Irene's place and did some crafty stuff! ☆ミ(o*・ω・)ノ

So those were the first 3 days of my journey!~ I'll update more later.
