|diary| Melody weekend

Hello bunnies!

How've you been? I hope everything is going fantastic to you all ♡

Cómo han estado? Espero todo les haya estado yendo de maravilla!! 

On Saturday I attended the AsiaMania festival that was held on Barranco! I went there to see Melody Dolls dance. For the ones that doesn't know, Melody Dolls is an adorable dance group and CM, Lui, Sarita & Kafuuh dance there! It was also Ama's last performance in the group and I had to go. One of the things people like most of MD is that they used hyper cute dresses and sometimes they wear Lolita ♡

El día sábado fui al festival AsiaMania que tuvo lugar en Barranco! Fui para ver a Melody Dolls bailar. Para los que no saben, Melody Dolls es un adorable grupo de baile y CM, Lui, Sarita & Kafuuh bailan en el! También era la última presentación de Amita en el grupo, así que tenía que ir. Una de las cosas que al público más le gusta de MD es que usan súper adorable vestidos y a veces usan Lolita para sus presentaciones 

Lui - Sarita - CM


Anyway, sadly I missed AMA's dance, but I did spend the rest of the day with her and the rest of MD and cheering for them for the rest of the day. We also met Natalia, a Moitie fan that turned out to be a really sweet girl~ that of course I'll try to dress in pink.

En fin, lamentablemente me perdí el baile de Amita, pero pasé un día super lindo con ella y el resto de las chicas y animándolas en el resto de sus presentaciones del día. También conocimos a Natalia, una fan de Moitie que resultó ser una chica super dulce~ y que obviamente debo vestir de rosa.

We took the chance to show our support to the new community LACE which goal is to stop cyber bullying and exploitation is Lolita. Hopefully this becomes a major thing in Lolita and maybe little by little people will respect everybody better and find non harmful ways to show their dislike towards other Lolitas and the ones that get hurt by this will have a safe place to vent as well as not to take it as a chance to engage to vengeance or public shows of more hatred. And that's all I say! I like what a compromise like this can bring ♡

Aprovechamos la oportunidad para mostrar nuestro apoyo a LACE, cuyo objetivo es parar el cyber bullying y la explotación en el Lolita. Con suerte, esto se volverá algo grande en el Lolita y tal vez poco a poco se propagará un mejor respeto y encontrar maneras no hirientes de mostrar cuando no nos gusta algo de otras Lolitas y, las que han sufrido de esto, tengan un lugar seguro donde contar sus experiencias y no tomar las mismas como un incentivo para la venganza o muestras publicas de más odio. Y eso es todo lo que diré al respecto! Me gusta la idea de lo que un compromiso como este pueda traer 


Finally I had the chance to wear my new headpiece and I wore my Princess Honey's tea saloon again! I can't believe I've just wore it once. Lui said I was pretty overdressed though (つД`)ノ

Finalmente, tuve la oportunidad de usar mi nuevo accesorio de cabello y usé nuevamente mi Princess Honey's Tea Saloon! No puedo creer que sólo lo haya usado 1 vez. Aunque Lui dijo que estaba muy vestida para ocasión (つД`)ノ

And that's it! Thanks for reading!

|Review| Secret Honey x Disney Ornament Princess Dress

'Ello bunnies!

How've you been? Hope everybody is having a lovely lovely week~ and that life isn't being that hard. 

So~ life is a funny thing and it's full of surprises such as dream dresses and dream items hehehe I happened to run into one of my dream dresses some weeks ago and, for that price, I really couldn't let it go~ 

I dunno if you know about |Secret Honey| . This is not a Lolita brand but more of a Cute Adult brand line and I'm not normally that interested in any brand besides Lolita but they happen to do tons of collaborations with Disney! And the dresses are so darling I'm dying to have every item and dress cutely everyday... Sadly they tend to sold out quite quickly online and I prefer to spend in Lolita brands. 

Last year, Secret Honey released a Princess ornament dress. One of the versions was long enough to be used in Lolita but the one I found online is the short one... Anyway, bought it using Buyee and it arrived perfectly in its original box with tags, tote bag and all!

Cómo han estado? Espero que todos estén teniendo una muy adorable semana~ y que la vida no esté siendo muy difícil.

So ~ La vida es muy graciosa y llena de sorpresas como dreamdresses y dream items jejeje Me pasó que me encontré uno de mis DD en subasta hace unas semanas, y por el precio, no lo podía dejar ir~

No sé si conozcan a Secret Honey. No es una marca Lolita sino una marca causal con el concepto de Cute Adult (Adulto lindo). Normalmente no me interesan muchas marcas fuera de las marcas Lolita, pero sucede que SH tiene muchas colaboraciones con Disney! Y los vestidos son tan adorables y yo me muero por todos y poder vestir super cute todos los días... lamentablemente suelen agotarse muy rápido por internet y prefiero invertir en marcas Lolita.

El año pasado, SH lanzó el Princess Ornament. Una de las versiones era suficientemente larga parausarse en Lolita, pero la que encontré fue la versión corta... En fin, lo compré usando Buyee y llogo perfectamente bien en su caja orginal, percha, etiquetas y tote de regalo.


This dress was part of the Frozen Collection. 

Este vestido fue parte de la colección de Frozen.


But featuring Disney Princesses: Aurora, Rapunzel, Ariel, Cinderella (Sadly no Snow ;3;)

Bodice is in a kind of velveteen with broderie, really detailed and sturdy. The neck laces are velveteen too and have crown ornaments. 

Pero con las Princessas Disney: Aurora, Rapunzel, Ariel y Cenicienta (lamentablemente, no Blanca Nieves).

La parte de arriba está hecha con una especie de Velveteen delgado, muy detallado y de buena calidad. Los lazos para el cuello también son de terciopelo y tienen adornos de coronitas al final.


The skirt is a bit heavy and the print is really pretty and well done. 
It's pretty short on me... As I knew 

La falda es un poco pesada y el estampado está muy bien hecho y bien detallado.
Es algo corto en mi... como supuse.



But here's where creativity comes to make it Lolita~ Lui will add some ruffles to make it look longer and regal!
Pero aquí es cuando nos ponemos creativos para hacer que funcione con Lolita~ Lui le va a agregar algunos volados para hacerlo ver más largo y princesa.



I think I'll wear this for Loliday! It mixes my endless love for Lolita and Disney in a magical princessy piece! 

It's indeed a very sturdy piece. Maybe not as detailed as a Lolita Brand piece as this is supposed to be a casual piece but it's elegant in its own way. 

Hope you liked it. You can find Secret Honey at Rakuten.

Creo que lo usaré para Loliday! este vestido mezcla mis dos grandes amores: Lolita y Disney en una pieza mágicamente princesil! 

Es en serio una pieza muy bella. Puede que no tan detallada como algo hecho por una marca Lolita ya que se supone que este es un vestido de diario, pero es elegante a su propia manera.

Espero que les haya gustado. Pueden encontrar a Secret Honey en su tienda de Rakuten.

Stay cute

|Lolita Life| Loli Time's Easter Tea Party

Hello bunnies~

Yesterday I attended Loli Time's Easter Tea Party! I just knew about it yesterday (life has been hectic as always) but Loli Time is actually a new group here in Lima that will do Lolita gatherings and events. It's run by the local online store Lady Bug and they'll also have a shopping platform I'm dying to try. Dense as I am I was totally clueless...

Ayer fui al Tea Party de Pascuas de Loli Time! Recién me enteré ayer (mi vida ha estado algo ajetreada estos días), pero Loli Time es un nuevo grupo aquí en Lima que va ha realizar juntas y eventos Lolita. Está dirigido por la tienda online Lady Bug y también han anunciado una plataforma de compras que muero por probar. Densa como soy, ni me había dado cuenta...

You can know more about them here

So as always I went to Mari's first to get ready. She was as always absolutely fantastic and of course had to take a shot of her.
Como siempre fui primero donde Mari para alistarnos. Ella estaba totalmente hermosa y por supuesto tuve que tomarle una foto.


My outfit was inspired by a hat I had purchased from Lui that is the cutest thing ever!
Mi coordinado estuvo inspirado en un sombrero que le compré a Lui que es la cosa más hermosa del mundo!


Ph: CM

Hat: Cuteberry
Top: Babyssb
Skirt: Crown Label (Metamorphose)
Accessories: Chocomint / Taobao

|Review| DreamV ruffle booties

Hello bunnies~

A little while ago I made my first DreamV order! For the ones that don't know DramV is a multi brand that carries different little sub brands for a variety of styles. It's mostly followed by Gyaru girls but one of its lines is very dolly and have tons of loliable stuff. Most Lolitas normally buy shoes, bags and blouses from DreamV, so I picked a gorgeous gold heart bag and a pair of booties to die for... Really, everybody says they're amazingly pretty.


I bought the boots for a coord I have in the making and really they can be used for a lot of coords, even for daily use! DreamV is on Rakuten so it was sent via EMS and arrived pretty quickly! Everything was really well wrapped and was perfect... Till some days later I tried them on.

I ordered a size 7 (24cm) but it was actually a tad big for me, nothing that can't be solved. The real problem came as I started walking. The boot part doesn't let you move your ankle so the fake leather brushes against your skin while walking. It happens that I have really but really sensitive skin so by the time I arrived to work...


We'll let's say my ankle didn't like it. 
My advice is that if you buy this particular model, you use it with thick socks if your skin is as sensitive as mine. I normally can't wear slippers without socks or I bleed. 

Will try to wear them again once the cuts close up :( 

I still love them though~

That's it for today! 
Have an amazing week! 

Stay cute

|Diary| February haul

Hello bunnies,

How have you been? I'm really happy because my mother came back from the USA and I won't be living alone anymore. I don't mind being alone as I'm a pretty lonely person but after spending all my money and havin a paranormal experience I'm rather happy to have them back.

Anyway, February was a month in which even if I told my self not to buy got some stuff thanks to mother *yey* so bear with me while I brag about my month's presents.

Mom was pretty lovely indeed 

So first up is my first DreamV order! After seeing some videos I decided to finally buy some things from DreamV. I shall do a proper guide on how to order there of you please. I got a gorgeous gold heart shape bag I had been drooling for a while now and a dreamy pair of booties that are fantastic. Best purchase ever! 


Can't wait for winter! 

Now onto the Disney shopping. As you may know already I'm a Disney fan through and through as well as my parents, so I got some thingies for daily use! My mom insists on me having more "casual", conventional clothes~ I dare say she tried. Still can see myself wearing a crop top but I'll try since it's pretty. 

Belle keychain! It's now with the Disney key my boss gave me when he visited Disneyland. 

Ariel's wallet! I got my wallet stolen some months ago. It's nice to have a proper one back! 

Aurora's crop top. Dunno what do to with this but it's cute. 

Beauty & the beast top. I'm actually wearing it today. 

Belle's tiara. This is quite the only quite Lolita thing from the lot. It's so so so pretty! 

She also got me a couple of things at Claire's! She knows I love flowers so she got me some.

And a new eyeliner *yey* 

But the biggest preset was something I've been longing for quite a lot of times. I love taking photos and even if I can't do it often I still do it from time to time. Specially to take pictures of my gorgeous friends! Soooo mom got me a 50mm lens!! 

Oh all the things I wanna do with this baby. My baby.

Finally, my dad is coming today and he got me Pumpkin Juice from the Harry Potter park! And Mickey Mumu has got new friends~ 


Yet the month couldn't end without Lolita right? But that will be another story!

Nothing like fascinators and baby galore! 

Stay cute~

|Event| Faba's bday + Vday + Chinese New Year tea party

Hello bunnies,

How have you been? Summer cycle is almost over and soon I'll start my very last semester at university *yey* hope you  all are having good days full of hope. 

Cómo han estado? Mi ciclo de verano está por acabar y voy a empezar mi último semestre en la universidad *yey* espero todos estén teniendo buenos días llenos de ánimos. 

Anyway, last Sunday I had the pleasure to attend a lovely the party hosted by amazing Faba! We celebrated her birthday, valentine's day and the beginning of the Chinese New Year because Faba has Chinese family *\(^o^)/*

En fin, el domingo tuve el places de atender un adorable TeaParty organizado por la genial Faba! Celebramos su cumpleaños su cumpleaños, San Valentín y el inicio del año Chino, ya que Faba es de familia China! 

I decided to wear my Marie Antoinette since one of the activities of the month was to talk about your favourite piece. And this is my favourite ^_−☆

Decidí usar mi MarieAntoinette ya que una de nuestras actividades del mes era hablar sobre nuestra prenda favorita. Y esa es la mía. 



I really like the events my friends do, they have so many activities! We went to Bambu Tea House and did a Chinese horoscope trivia, got our Lolita horoscope and received homemade chocolate lollipops by Faba \(^o^)/

Me gustan mucho los eventos que hacen mis amigas, ya que tienen muchas actividades! En esta ocasión fuimos a Bambú TeaHouse y tuvimos una trivia sobre el horóscopo chino, nuestro horóscopo chino versión Lolita y Faba nos dio paletas de chocolate hechas por ella! 





The company was amazingly lovely too and we had a nice time chatting and sharing. I do hope we get more small gatherings like this in the future. 

La compañía fue genial también y tuvimos muchos lindos momentos conversando y compartiendo entre todas. Espero tengamos muchas más juntas como estás en el futuro. 


Faba - Kat - Mari - Sarita - Val - Lui - Hiro - CM 

Have awesome memorable days~ 
Stay cute,

|Month Theme| Valentine's Coord ♥

Hello bunnies,

I don't know if I told you but I'm in a lovely Lolita Group and the girls came with the idea of having month theme to have fun! As we're very few, it was decided to have two per month and this is my go in the first one: Valentine's Day Coord Challenge! ♥

No sé si les conté, pero estoy en un encantador grupo lolita y a las chicas tuvieron la idea de tener temas mensuales para divertirnos! Como somos muy poquitas, se decidió que tuvieramos dos temas por mes y este es m intento con el primero: Reto de coordinado de San Valentín! ♥

Even when I don't have a bf, I enjoy Vday a lot. Just the hearts and lovely things put me in a very good mood. My favourite one was when I was over the USA and the lady I lived with made my roommate and me a surprise breakfast! That time she got me a lovely cup I still have and use. So for me Vday and love in general is something deeper than a usual "love" portrait when people talk about it.

Aún en cuando no he tenido enemorado, me encanta San Valentín. Los corazones y cosas adorables me ponen de muy buen humor. Mi San Valentín favorito fue cuando estaba en los EE.UU. y la señora con la que vivía nos hizo a mí y a mi roommate un desayuno sorpresa! Ese día me regaló una hermosa taza que todavía uso. Así que para mí San Valentín y el amor en general es algo más que el usual "amor" que regularmente se muestra.

I'll quote Belle to get to my point:
Cito a Belle para que entiendan lo que digo:


So for my Vday coord I wanted red not to be the basic colour. You see for me the colour of love is pink. Pink mixes the red of passion with the innocent, lovely butterflies in your stomach when you see the one you love. However I do like red a lot so I used it as accents to my coord.

Así que para mi coordinado de San Valentín, no quería que el color rojo fuera el color base. Para mí el color del amor es el rosado. El rosa mezcla la pasión del rojo con la inocencia y las mariposas que sientes en el estómago cuando vez a alguien que quieres. Sin embargo, me encanta el color rojo, así que decidí usarlo como acento para mi coordinado.

I called it Innocent Love
I got inspired by the feeling when you see that person you like on the very first day ♥

Lo llamo Innocent Love
Me inspiré en el sentimiento de cuando vez a la persona que te gusta en la primera cita ♥

Bolero: Forever21
Dress, necklace, headbow: Baby, the Stars Shine Bright
Accessories: Chocomint, Handmade
Socks: Claire's 
Shoes: offbrand

So I tried to mix pink with cherry red and I think I looks pretty fun. It's pretty hot here as we're in the middle of the summer so I preferred a bolero over a blouse because it's really really so hot I had to take it all off after a while. Innocent Rose is a pretty heavy dress itself but I love it to pieces and it just screams sweetness and love and it would be perfect for a date.

Así que intenté mezclar rosa con rojo cereza y creo logré algo con un toque de diversión. Hace calor aquí ya que estamos en pleno verano, así que preferí un bolero a una blusa porque en serio hace mucho mucho, pero muchísimo calor, tanto que me tuve que quitar todo luego de un rato. Innocent Rose es un vestido algo pesado por sí solo, pero me encanta y simplemente grita dulzura y amor y creo que sería perfecto para una cita.




So... would you be my valentine?
Así que... serías mi San Valentín?

Stay cute~

|Diary| Hiro's epic Lolita picnic

Hello bunnies~ 

Long long time no see! I'm the worst blogger ever but I'll try -as always- to change that. Hope you're all having a wonderful 2015 so far. Mine hasn't been that good but I'm looking forward shinier days. 

Anyway, last Saturday was my first meet up of the year! Hiro invited a bunch of friends to spend the day at her dad's. As we're in the middle of the summer, we planned to make a picnic in the garden. So, on Friday, after work I went to a nearby cafe and bought macarons to share. Then headed home and prepared my coord and everything it was going to bring for the occasion... Yeah I was very excited! 



On Saturday I went early on to Mari's to help her out and to go together with Faba. Mari had made the most absolutely deliciously cute food ever! It included a salad cake, onigiris and rilakkuma mini sandwiches! After a short drive we arrived at Hiro's and oh my everyone was so cute! It was really a dream meet up. So we prepare everything, took photos, chatted and ate in ver unladylike ways.


When it got darker we went to the cinema room and watch the 25th anniversary of the Phantom of the Opera Play! Which was of course was amazing. And after that, thanks to lovely ClaudiaMiani, we played Cards Against Lolita, which Faba won with all her wittiness and Lolitopoly!! That showed Lui's dark side in all its finest. 


And that was all! It was an amazing wonderful day! I cried, laughed and enjoyed myself plenty. I'm very grateful with my friends for letting me spend such amazing days and I'm looking forward the next meet up. I love them.


So... This is all for today! The little group I'm in is making monthly activities which I hope to share here. I'm very content with all the little ways we make to enjoy the fashion. 

Thank you for reading and have a lovely week.

Stay cute,

Val♡
