Leipzig zoo, bookfair pics and random stuff: This is not a Rothenburg post!

Hello fellow kings, queens, princesses and rulers of the world <3
I hope you're all doing fine!

I don't have much Lolita news to share. I didn't attend Rothenburg or any convention recently. And I couldn't bring myself to wear Lolita in the past couple of days as my flat's just too hot at the moment. So I'm simply sharing pics of some lovely people, and from a trip to the zoo <3

So first of all, I finally managed to edit the pics from this year's book fair in Leipzig. Isa ( and me go there every year and it's always been a lot of fun. Though I must say that next year we might also look for other events as we were both getting a little unexcited. This year, cosplayers and lolitas weren't treated very nicely, as the organizers tried to separate us from the ordinary crowd. I do understand their points, and I don't try to judge their actions. It's just that maybe we should focus on other events instead? Hmmm...
Anyway, here are some pics of some very gorgeous people I was allowed to take pics of <3

Quite not so recently I met Franzi for visiting the Zoo in Leipzig! It was a lot of fun, even though not all animals were there. Especially the newly built areas are exciting. They even built a hall that makes you feel like being on a tropical island and it's so relaxing there. We somehow took an entry nobody seemed to notice. We had to pass long, mine-like corridors that were barely lit for the nocturnal animals and suddenly entered the tropical hall and it was just amazing!

I also have some more random stuff to share. First, I was trying out those Wilton gum paste roses. I always thought you could actually eat those flowers. Well, indeed you could, but it's the consistency of (sweet) gypsum. Those roses are my first try and I'm afraid I'll leave it at that. That's okay since I finally managed to get myself away from sweets and any unhealthy stuff, and I don't want to give in to the temptation anytime soon >_< As soon as you get past the first days of not eating fatty or sweet stuff, you really start to feel active and very healthy! This is like.... my goodbye-sweets-cake :D

I usually don't post things I bought (wait, didn't I say that in my last post as well?!) but I was so relieved when my Sakizou tights finally arrived. It took them over a month (and I seriously only mean shipping) and I thought they got lost. But here they are, being all gorgeous and beautiful <3

I also finally got the original AP pony bag and the Soiree OP ↑↑↑ (and it's oh-so-beautiful, I couldn't stop wearing it) and more... stuff. I'm sorry, I just had to share this showoff/what's-inside-your-package-pic!
Talking of my greed, Fanu got me those wonderful Slytherin shirts, I can't thank her enough for this <3<3<3
I also received my  new contact lenses. They're SO bright and cool and I absolutely wasn't able to look friendly with them. It's just impossible. When I smiled, I looked even more scary. THEY'RE GORGEOUS!

Sorry, my old mobile doesn't have a front camera, so I can only provide wannabe-selfies. But I'll try to post a close-up soon and maybe I'll do a review on them, if I find where and which ones I ordered >_<
I'd love to wear them together with some ouji clothes but my skills still need to improve a lot. I'm really trying, but I only manage to get better by small steps. But I do my best and maybe some of my friends love this style as much as I do and we can dress up together and doing prince-things together <3... wait- what

Wish you all the best and take care <3
