✿ Spring means Flowers ✿

Hello everyone! ☆ミ(o*・ω・)ノ It's finally spring in Finland! Flowers are blooming and it's getting warmer day by day. When cherry blossoms bloomed I went to take some photos with some of my friends. We still haven't edited those photos but I hope we can publish them soon. (* >ω<)

With cutie-pie Noora! ♡꒰*・ω・人・ω・*꒱♡

Last Thursday I went to Roihuvuori's Hanami! Flowers were on full bloom by then and it was so pretty. (❁´▽`❁)*✲゚* There was also different performances from people who are interested in Japanese culture, costume competition and even we as Chotto!Chocolate had live called Spring of LIVE. But more about that later too when I get more photos. •ू(ᵒ̴̶̷ωᵒ̴̶̷*•ू) ​ )੭ु⁾

My boyfriend went to Japan for two weeks and he brought me some souvenirs! (੭ु ›ω‹ )੭ु⁾⁾♡ Banana sweets and Sakura Matcha Kitkats. Those banana sweets were really cute, they had little flowers on them! I also got Nico Nendoroid as a surprise. I'm so happy, Nico is the best Love Live girl ever. (๑>ᴗ<๑)

As you might have spotted from the last picture I also got something from Liz Lisa! (୨୧ ❛ᴗ❛)✧ I'm so thankful he went through all the trouble and found Harajuku's Liz Lisa shop and got me this. I love sunflowers and when I saw these in Liz Lisa's official blog I just fell in love. Sailor collar + sunflowers = just perfection. (●♡∀♡) I also like that you can mix these two pieces up with other pieces of clothing. He also got me this sunflower necklace. So cute.

That's all for this time! I hope I can get more outfit photos soon. I just always feel so awkward when I think about asking someone to take a picture of me. ;u; But I just have to be more brave because many of my friends like taking photos and it wouldn't be that big of a deal. ヽ(*´Д`*)ノ

Natural Girl

Hello everyone! (o´ω`o)ノ Long time no see. At the moment I don't really know what to write here, so that's why I haven't updated my blog. I've been taking pictures and so on, but I really feel like I have a writer's block or something. (▰˘︹˘▰) But I'll keep trying my best!

TADA! ⸂⸂⸜(രᴗര๑)⸝⸃⸃ I went and changed my hair color more natural. I was getting tired of maintaining that pink hair. It's nice to be a natural girl again.

I also got new round glasses after the ones I used at Desucon broke. These are from ebay and I love them. (´∀`)♡

I've been eating a lot of Japanese food once again. Noora made this delicious kitsune udon some time ago.

I've been also wearing more sailorish clothes these days! Summer is getting closer and closer and I can't wait to wear my stuff without cardigans.

Another Japanese food I ate some time ago. Ramen! This meal I ate at Japanese Restaurant Aya. I love it because they have many other foods than sushi. There's too many sushi places in Helsinki, so it's nice to see someone is offering other Japanese food! (*^ワ^*)

So that's about it for this time I think. There has been many things going on but blah. Let's hope I'll find inspiration to write soon. (୨୧ ❛ᴗ❛)✧

✿ Cake Buffet & New Liz Lisa ✿

Hello everyone! ヾ(๑╹ヮ╹๑)ノ” This week my roommates little sister came to visit our place and Helsinki, so we decided to take her to a cake buffet called Kakkugalleria (= Cake Gallery). I have eaten at Kakkugalleria twice before, and my limit is nine slices of cake. This time I wanted to break that record! (๑ゝڡ◕๑)

This is the view from the door when you step inside Kakkugalleria. The place is really cozy. (◡‿◡✿) Cake buffet with tea or coffee costs 11,90e and if you want special coffee like latte etc. with your cake it's 13,90e. 

AND HERE ARE THE CAKES! (රڡර人) There's so many to choose from. They even have gluten free and vegan cake too! 

Even thought I wanted to break my record on eating cakes I only managed to eat eight slices. (´;ω;`) But that's okay they were so yummy! I mostly love cheesecakes and strawberry cakes, but I tried other cakes too. They were nice too but I love my strawberry ones best.

For eating cakes I chose really casual outfit.
Blouse ★ Indiska
Sweatshirt ★ H&M
Skirt ★ Mango

Same day as we went to eat cakes I got my latest order from Wanboo. (*ˊૢᵕˋૢ*) There were really cute Liz Lisa items yet again. And the prices were low as always so I just went with it! There can never be too many Liz Lisa items. 

I just love this jumper. Material is really soft and it's really warm. I thought that the sleeves would be too short but they fit just perfectly. I love those cute ribbon details on the sleeves! ♡✧( ु•⌄• )

Dress on the left I actually bought from a Finnish facebook flea market. Seller said it was Liz Lisa, but it turned out to be fake (tag says Liya Liza). ( ≧Д≦) But oh well, it didn't cost much and it's still really pretty dress so I'm going to wear it anyway! Brown dress is from my Wanboo order and I was kinda worried about the fit, because my chest is a little bit too big for many Japanese dresses. But it turned out to be okay! (•̀ᴗ•́)و I can't wait for summer and wearing this.

I didn't have almost any white skirts etc. so when I saw this skort on Wanboo it was really dreams come true! I usually end up buying too flashy shirts and bottoms so I can't really mix them up too well. This piece will be really useful for outfit coordinates. And then there was this bag. It's so classy but still cute!

So that's about it for this time. Hope you have a great day. (∗ᵒ̶̶̷̀ω˂̶́∗)੭₎₎̊₊♡

❅ Desucon Frostbite 2015 ❅

Hello and happy belated Valentine's Day to everyone! ヾ(・ᆺ・✿)ノ゙ I spent my Valentine's day at Desucon Frostbite like in the last year. It was really nice to go to Lahti and Sibeliustalo once again. I've been working at Desucon for so many times that Sibeliustalo feels pretty much like a second home these days.

My Desucon started at 9 o'clock in Friday morning. This time I got to work as a helper at the party stuff and taking some videos for DesuTV. Working for the party stuff was really hard because I'm such a little girl with no muscle, and all the stuff I got to do was moving tables and chairs around. But I managed to do it and people were grateful that I was helping yay! (〃▽〃)

Friday's outfit!
Dress ★ Liz Lisa
Shoes ★ Janita

So the conventions opened the doors for guests at 5 o'clock and we were ready and hyped. Me and Stella were taking videos of people coming in for DesuTV. Soon after that we rushed to the main hall to see the opening ceremony. Opening ceremony was good as always and got me hyped about the con! (((o(*゚▽゚*)o)))

After the opening ceremony it was time to watch Rakuen Tsuiho -movie! I had been looking really forward to it and it was much better than I expected. (✿☉。☉) I got used to whole CGI-animation much faster than I could've ever imagined. Story and characters were interesting and it was really beautiful to just look at. Too bad there where some technical problems and the film lagged in some parts of the movie, but that wasn't a big problem for me. But that was a problem that every time the movie lagged the audience LAUGHED. ლ(ಠ益ಠ)ლી Like wtf, there were some super dramatic things happening and people could still laugh because of a little lag? And what made it even worse was that the guests of honour director Mizushima and screenwriter Urobuchi were sitting in the audience too... 

But after the movie they had a little talk show about the movie and it was really interesting. Once again I'm not very proud of the audience, because people behind me talked while the interview was going on. And they weren't even whispering! ( >д<)

After the movie I went to chill at DesuLounge which was a new experiment at Desucon. I think DesuLounge was really successful and I hope they keep doing that in the later Desucons. They played really nice anime jazz remixes and people were just chilling out with a few good drinks. I wish they could get a live jazz band there next time! (´▽`ʃƪ)

Saturday's outfit!
Dress ★ Liz Lisa
Shoes ★ Yumetenbo

My Saturday was supposed to start at 11 o'clock, but I ended up sleeping in because we were working with the party stuff for so late. Because of that I ended up missing Urobuchi's interview, but no can do. I also had already a little flu, so I ended up placing my health first. But the first program I went to see was Mizushima's lecture about Rakuen Tsuiho. It was really interesting, they were talking lots and lots about making movies in CGI and 3D and how that is different from making regular 2D anime. I learned all kinds of things there!

Other things I went to see Saturday were cosplay competition and Urobuchi Q&A! I don't usually go to see cosplay things because I'm not too interested in the competition aspect of cosplay. But there were some really great performances and I'm happy I went to see them. I took some great material for DesuTV too. But what I waited most forward to was the new cosplay dance group Moi's who did the half time show! Love Live is the best thing ever and the group was really cute. (/∇\*)。o○♡

In Urobuchi Q&A the audience there got a chance to ask their own questions from the mastermind himself. Most of the questions weren't too interesting, but I'm glad people asked some things about Psycho-Pass that I've been thinking too. 

Then was time for the big Desucon party! I was super tired so I wasn't partying too much. (´;д;`) But I managed to take videos of all the artists who performed. First there was a new band called The Next Hokage Band playing cover's of Naruto songs. And they rocked it. The whole audience was on fire and everyone seemed to love them. I was singing along the great nostalgic Naruto openings.

After the band there was a dance show! A group called BLUFF had their first Desucon gig and they were really cute! I'm kinda jealous they got the opportunity they had this chance because stage there was awesome. I miss doing lives with Chotto!Chocolate~. (๑´•ω • `๑)

Then it was time to DJs take over the party. Most of the time I was just chilling at the backstage because my flu felt so bad at the moment. But what I heard to the backstage I wasn't too keen on music they played. I know everyone has said this like million times but pls play more anime songs there! (∗ᵒ̶̶̷̀ω˂̶́∗)੭₎₎̊₊♡

Sunday's outfit.
Shirt ★ Second-hand
Jumper Skirt ★ Liz Lisa

And finally was the last day of Desucon Frostbite. I was supposed to go see three different programs that day, but I was way too sick and tired to do so. Luckily Desucon usually uploads normal lectures to their Youtube so I can just watch them later. I just chilled, went eating with some friends and went to see the closing ceremony. The video DesuTV did for the closing ceremony was super hilarious. 

Then we of course cleaned Sibeliustalo up with all other con workers and had super fun worker's after party. Too bad that I caught flu right before the convention but I still could have so much fun that whatever. Can't wait for the next convention, I really like being around other anime people. ♡(*´・ω・)(・ω・`*)♡

Day as a Flower Fairy

Hello lovelies! \(^▽^*) Last weekend I finally had my birthday party for my friends! I love theme parties so of course I wanted my b-day party to have a theme too. So the theme I decided on was

Flowers & Flours

So I had great amount of flowers in my outfit and people brought homemade cakes with them! I ate so many sugary things that I felt I'm going to be diabetic or something lol. (๑-﹏-๑)

Here's some of the food we had! I'm so glad we also had some salty snacks to eat, otherwise there would've been too much sugar. My roommate even had some moose meat! 

Beautiful flower cake was made by Stella.(=´∇`=)The flower decorations were made of marshmallows. So cute!

This gorgeous chocolate cake was made by Emmi and Essi! This cake was so sweet.

I made a New York cheesecake, which didn't turn out too beautiful but it was really delicious. (∩❛ڡ❛∩)

Blowing the candles yaaay! It's always so awkward to have all the people celebrating singing the birthday song and just smiling and being awkward. But I got to blow the candles and make my birhday wish! (๑╹ڡ╹)╭ ~ ♡

Almost all my guests left at the midnight so we had only my roomies and few other people left. So me and Stella decided to go to Omegle. I put my weeaboo-mode on with neko ears and paws and just weirded some people out.... But it was fun! (❁´▽`❁)*✲゚*

It was a fun little party to have and the food was absolutely delicious. I hope everyone enjoyed this short party as well. And the partying doesn't come to and end here! Today I'm going to my friend Verna's bday party. So next time I think I'm going to write about that. Until then! (。•̀ᴗ-)✧

✧ Yumetenbo Haul ✧

Hello everyone! ヾ(・ᆺ・✿)ノ゙ It's been really cold here in Finland and I've been drinking way too much tea. But I finally received my order from Yumetenbo, maybe new clothes will motivate me to do stuff haha. 

First a cardigan and a blouse! I fell in love with the brown pink hearted ribbon buttoned cardigan at the first sight. It looked so cute! (〃・ω・〃) And there's never enough cardigans if you live in Finland, because it's always so cold. The blouse is cream colored with brown details. There's also never enough blouses with ribbons, I think this will be very useful for coordinating outfits.

Then I got this red skirt with lacy heart pockets! It feels kinda christmassy because there's white and red, but hey I made this order in December. But I think I've come up with coordinations that don't make it look too christmassy. The fabric was really soft too, this skirt is so comfy. (´ω`★)

And finally the pieces I was looking most forward to! (๑>ᴗ<๑) The print with rocking horses is kinda lolita-ish don't you think?  Cute stuff but still casual enough for my style.

You'll be seeing me wearing these in the future posts. (๑ゝڡ◕๑) I can't wait to coordinate perfect outfits with these!

And for last here's a song I've been listening like crazy for past few days! Momoiro Clover Z VS. Kiss, isn't that the coolest thing ever or what?! I loooooove this video, the animation part and clothing are gorgeous! Too bad the song isn't as good as the video but hey it's still kinda catchy!

Birthday Princess ★

Hi everyone! (⁎ ✪͡ ◡͐✪͡ ⁎)ノ” Guess whose birthday was yesterday? M-I-N-E! ★ I didn't do too much, but luckily I'm going to have a big party next week! But I met with some of my friends, participated in a quiz and ate some yummy finger food with champagne. (´ω`★) 

Dress ★ Liz Lisa
Cardigan ★ Liz Lisa
Shoes ★ YesStyle
Bag ★ Yumetenbo
Necklace ★ Kalevala Koru
Hair accessories ★ H&M

I felt like dressing up in my new Liz Lisa dress! It is pretty but the choice of fabrics makes it look a bit more casual than most of my Liz Lisa clothes. So it was great for hanging out in pub. 

Lol my winter coat isn't himekaji or my style at all. (; ̄д ̄) I wish I could find one that was white or pink. But Finland is so damn cold in winter that most of Yumetenbo's and Liz Lisa's coats are way too cold for this weather. But at least I can feel like a princess with clothes underneath the coat! (◡‿◡✿)

♡ New Hair & Liz Lisa Haul ♡

As you can see in the picture above I have done something totally crazy to my hair. ヽ(。ゝω・。)ノ It's really shocking pink now! I tried to dye my hair light pink, like cotton candy or bubble gum, but this product really went over and above... The color is even more vibrant in the real life. But I'm not disappointed too much, this is a fun color too. But I'm still not going to give up, someday I'll have that perfect shade of pink in my hair! (•̀⌄•́)

Today was a happy day because I finally got my order from Wanboo! It even motivated me to do some housework haha. 

They're all Liz Lisa. (“⌒∇⌒”) So there's red shorts, a white lace cardigan and a floral dress. When I saw those shorts I knew I had to get them because ANCHORS!! And I didn't have any red bottoms before. These will be so nice with all my sailor clothes. I'm a big sucker for cardigans and lace, so I fell in love right away with that cardigan. The dress didn't look so good in Wanboo's photos but it was so cheap and looked kinda nice so got it too... But it turned out to be more beautiful in real life than in pictures!

So basically this morning felt like it was Christmas again. (´ω`★) But this is not all, because when I placed my Wanboo order I ordered some clothes from Yumetenbo too! I'm still waiting for it to arrive and they haven't even shipped it yet. But I'll blog about it too when the order finally arrives. ☆~(ゝ。∂)

✿ Sales Shopping ✿

Hello! How was everyone's New Year? (o´ω`o)ノ I got together with some friends and watched Kouhaku Utagassen like last year. It was really fun just chill out, listen to good music and eat great snacks and food. Of course we did some fireworks too! - =͟͟͞͞ ( ꒪౪꒪)ฅ✧ But I was too lazy to take any photos. 

As the year started I wanted to check out some sales! I don't really enjoy shopping in real stores anymore, especially in Winter because it's too hot all the time with the winter coat on and I can't really find any clothes I like. (; ̄д ̄) Online shopping for the win! But I found something else than clothes...

TADAH! (ノ>▽<。)ノ My new baby, Samsung's wi-fi camera. I went to Verkkokauppa (a Finnish electronics store which is really cheap) and saw this camera and it was love at the first sight. I really have a soft spot for white electronics. I've been really wanting to get a small camera, because my Canon is too heavy to carry around. And when I saw how cheap this one was... I just had to get it! One thing I was unsure about was the wi-fi part, like why in the name of Jesus would I need wi-fi in my camera. But when I looked it up and found out I can use my phone as a launcher with it... Σ(゜ロ゜;) Technology is cool man! I also got this cheap tripod because I've been needing one. But let's hope my new baby helps me to get into photographing once again!

I also got a tablet from Verkkokauppa. I've been thinking about getting one for over a year I think, and finally I found a good one for me! I mostly wanted to get a tablet for reading manga and playing some games so I didn't need anything special like Apple or Samsung. It's so light and easy to use. Maybe I'll try blogging with it too later. ヾ(*ゝω・*)ノ

But then! Time for some new CLOTHES! ヽ(^。^)丿 Sorry for the crappy quality of these photos, but Finnish winter is just so damn dark it's hard to get any good photos.

My friend was selling her old clothes and I'm always ready for some second-hand cuteness. Grey shirt is originally from H&M and I think that pink one is originally from YesStyle, but I'm not quite sure.

This bag is also from my friend. She told me that it was originally her mother's so I'm the third person to own it! I'm going to take good care of it. The white scarf in the right picture is from Gina Tricot and the striped mint shirt is from Mango.

Then I got some really basic stuff like tights, dry shampoo and a powder brush. And a toothbrush and so on, but I didn't take photos of stuff that basic, sorry. But goddammit those thick tights are expensive! There wasn't a sale on them of course, so I had to pay full price for them. But it was over 40 euros for three pairs of tights, what the heck really. ಠ_ಠ

Yesterday I was cleaning up my room and I noticed that I have so many Liz Lisa items these days. So maybe I should show them in my blog too? What do you guys think, would you like to see my Liz Lisa wardrobe? Also how can I find out if there are any fake ones? There's one dress I got from ebay or somewhere and it says Liz Lisa, but I'm not sure if it's a genuine one. Is there a way to find out if it's real or fake?

See you soon! ヽ(。ゝω・)ノ☆;:*
