New computer and little things ♡

Hi everyone! I'm so glad to be back. I'm sorry for my absence but about two weeks ago I got home to find out my computer was not in my room. I called my father asking about it and he said he took my computer and would buy me a new one. It was a good thing because I had a big PC desktop computer which took a lot of space and I didn't like the way it looked so I asked for a laptop, we were in a budget so I knew I wouldn't be getting a MacBook or a pink Vaio but I'm great hunting good deals and I found a laptop of my taste.

It's a Samsung ATIV book 2 14' I got it for a great price online I'm not gonna lie that the main criteria I used while shopping for a new computer was beauty, I didn't want something black and manly looking but even though I love pink I wanted something more mature so I chose a white laptop. I really like the design of this Samsung one and I'm so happy that now I don't have all the black wires from my old PC on the bottom of my desk.

This laptop comes with Windows 8 which I never used before, after some use I decided that I do like some of the features such as the pre-installed anti-virus and Photoshop and the high possibility of personalization. But I do understand why some people didn't like and didn't get used to Windows 8.

The personalization tools allow you to change the interface colors which I made all pink, the Windows 8 design remind me a lot of iOS7, very minimal which I also approve.
So far I really like the computer and I think it was a good choice.
I also have some stickers I might put on it:

Won't be putting them all. So far I think I'm gonna stick with My Melody :3

I also received two packages I ordered online, one was a very simple black bow I bought to match my Sugary Carnival bag:

The other package consisted of a set of Rilakkuma cups, it was such a pain to get those cups here, first time the seller sent they got lost, second time it took almost 3 months to arrive and when they did I got taxed in almost 100% of the original price by customs. Those cups ended up being way too expensive, I was originally going to keep the pink and the yellow ones for me and sell the blue and the brown but now I'll have to sell the yellow one too. If you are in Brazil and are interested on buying let me know they're R$25,00 each plus shipping (unless you live in São Paulo capital then we can work something out) I won't make any profit by selling them I just want to recover the money I had to pay on taxes.

Brown, yellow and blue ones available.
They are super cute and big, I've been taking mine to class everyday. Hope I'll be able to post frequently again. See you guys pretty soon :3

Thank You

What I've been up to plus new lolita outfit ♡

Hello everyone! I know it's been a long time since I last posted. Although I've been quite busy I did get to do a few nice things the last days. Just like everyone else I went see Maleficent with my boyfriend a couple weeks ago, we also tried a new ice cream shop (yep, we are enthusiasts I guess).

Well, needless to say that Angelina was beautiful in this movie but I was a bit disappointed by the plot, I was expecting the movie to be a little more twisted "Tim Burton-like" and it ended up being just like most Disney movies. I did enjoy the movie but didn't love it.

The great discovery of last weekend was Purogusto gelato shop, it was a little pricey but the flavor options were a total win. I got Salted Caramel and Berry Cheesecake and they were both amazing. If you ever come to Sao Paulo I recommend this place (not better than Bacio di Latte though).

I wish I had my own ice cream shop I would decorate all in pastel pink, mint and gold haha, those places do need to get more creative in that area.

Last week I also got two things on the mail that I'd been waiting too long for. Good news is that I really liked both a lot, bad news is that my other purchases are so late that I'm wondering if they got lost :(

Got a new wig! I'm so in love with it, it's not that different from my real hair but my hair is really thin and texture is too natural looking I don't think my real hair works with lolita at all so I since I didn't like the first wig that I bought that much I thought it would be a good idea to get a new one.

Trying the wig for the first time! Now I really want a medium blonde one :p Oh and please excuse my bare face, I was just back from school.
The other thing I received was a huge Rilakkuma bag that I've kept an eye on for a looong time:

I do prefer the Korilakkuma one but since this one was a lot cheaper and I'm super broke...Anyway, I like this bag, is actually so roomy that you can use like a suitcase for a weekend trip for example. I already wore it last weekend and literally carried a blanket in it :)

And last but not least, Sunday I got to wear Lolita and meet a few lolitas at an event. We were there for a Lolita contest which ended up being a very disorganized thing that frustrated all of us. I wore my Cherish My Juicy Cherry JSK for the first time and I'm really in love with this dress:

I'm not sure why but every single picture I attempted to take of myself wearing the outfit ended up very blurry. At the actual event they took many pictures of me and the other lolitas but I couldn't find any yet :/

I was wearing my Bodyline brown shoes and my Sweet Cream House bear bag again because besides my Sugary Carnival tote is the only Lolita bag I have so far, I'm quite desperate to buy a couple new bags for Lolita but no idea when I'll be able to afford :/

Blouse: Zara
JSK: Baby, The Stars Shine Bright
Beret: Accessorize
Cherry hairclip: Paris Kids
Glitter bow ring: Chocomint
Pearl bracelets and biscuit ring: made by me

Picture of me and the other girls from my boyfriend's cellphone. I really hope I'll be getting better pictures from this day soon!
So far I think this was my best coordinate, there are only two points I'd like to change next time I wear this outfit: change my bear bag for a cute brown bag and get a more detailed legwear. The bag looked ok with the rest of the outfit  I wore this bag many times and I'll still wear it many times with my Sweet Cream House JSK but since it's a bear shaped bag it takes too much attention from the JSK's print. I was wearing plain white tights and I think it would be more interesting if I had some cherry printed OTKs. But since I've been wearing lolita for only 2 months now I still have a looong journey ahead and I'll take one step at a time to build my wardrobe :)
As soon as I have better pictures I'll be posting them here.

Thank You
