Vacation♫ all I ever Wanted ♪(´ε` )

Hey babes! 
I hope your summers have been going well! I spent most of June just sitting around at home relaxing, but July ended up being loads busier. Last week I got my hair cut, but more importantly I got to go to Savannah, GA with two of my good friends, Alisha and Juliana;! I've gone with Alisha before, for spring break a couple of years ago, and it was totally just as fun the second time. I really love going there, because it ends up being a sweet cheap little get away. Historic Savannah is really beautiful and a lot of fun to explore! there are so many cute shops and art galleries and it's easy to just start walking around and end up having an adventure or discover great things! It's also the headquarters of SCAD, so there are a lot of local artists and galleries and fashionable cuties walking around. 

Here's my outfit from Wednesday! 
We arrived Tuesday night and decided to spend the night hanging around the hotels indoor pool and spa (which we spent a lot of time at!), But Wednesday morning we went out exploring ;u;.
Pink dress- Handmade
Pink Negligee- Vintage
Thigh Highs- Leg Avenue

Our first stop was a really well stocked beauty supply store! I've recently been inspired by my friends to expand my makeup collection, so I picked up these lip colors, and a few other new make up things that I've been needing. Aren't these colors so cute? I took the picture and tested em out when we stopped at McDonalds for some fries hehehe.

We shopped around a little bit and then went back to our hotel to relax in the pool and spa for most of the afternoon that day ;v;. Since our trip was only three days, I went ahead and changed before we went to Dinner ;v;,

Dress- A Gift
Accessories- Handmade/ Secondhand
Tote- Drawn by me

We walked around the City Market area before dinner, and found this ultra cute art gallery! I only got to peak in through the windows, since every time we returned here no one was around! We kept missing their open hours, which was a real shame because all the art was so great! Definitely check out their Facebook page to see more! I was really excited to see a Sailor Mercury print in the window and so much more sugary sweet art around.

We went to an italian restaurant that we liked last time for dinner! The antipasto was really yummy *u*! I ate most of it on accident. whoops!

The sun was going down so this pictures darker, but I had fettuccine alfredo with clams for dinner. Talk about yummy! My stepdad and older brother are both allergic to seafood, so I almost never get to eat it. This was such a treat!

Thursday was our day to check out Tybee Island! We did go last time, but since it was spring time it was cold and windy and the sand was bent on attacking us! This beach visit was so, so much better. I've never ever been to a beach as busy as Tybee Island before! When I go with family we usually go to secluded and peaceful beaches, which are heavenly, but this had so much energy and was ridiculously fun.

Thursdays outfit
Bralette- Handmade
Scrunchy socks- Gift

Beach towns are so cute. I love being by the beach because all the houses are pastel and super adorable.

None of us wore our bathing suits, since they were still wet from soaking in the hot tub, so we just walked along the shore and got about knee deep in the water ;w;. The temperature was  so perfect~ 

I drew a little in the sand ;v;

Busy beach days 

After the beach, we went on a search for somewhere with delicious crab legs *u*! They're one of my absolute favorite treats and I definitely didn't wanna leave without getting my fill of em. We found a cute little place called the Crab Shack with lots of weird attractions, like alligator ponds and a tropical bird area! 

I totally devoured my pound of crab legs. yum yum.

I wanted to pose with the little gator mascot hahaha!

After dinner, we went back to the hotel and basically ran straight for the hot tub! I could really get used to having one of those around all year! We had so much fun relaxing in the hot tub and pool before bed just about every night ;u;.

Fridays outfit!
Romper - H&M
Negligee- Vintage
We spent Friday walking around historic Savannah again, and shopping! We found this really sweet candy shop in the City Market *u*.

Candy Candy

We stopped by Leopold's Ice cream  at one point ;u;! I didn't get any, but Alishas mom, Juli, and Alisha did! I just had samples of everyone's flavors.

While we were walking around, this pink scooter kind of yelled my name! I was so obsessed with scooters last summer, seeing everyone in Italy zipping by on one. they're so cute! and this pink one needs me ahaha. It wouldn't be too convenient for me to drive one where I live, but I can dream! 

After that we set off on the relatively short road trip home! I seriously had a great time vacationing with my friends ;w;! It's always so nice to get away.

Thanks so much for droppin' by! See ya again real soon♪(´ε` )

☆ Whoops! A Slightly Late Frill 2013 post ☆

Hey babes, long time no post! So sorry about the unannounced little hiatus, but I refreshed my layout and updated things a little bit! I'm hoping to get back to posting somewhat regularly for a while now.

Life has been pretty complex lately with this being my last summer before going away to college, so I've been focusing a lot on things like hanging out with my friends and family, getting mentally prepared for a lifestyle change, and relaxing and enjoying my lazy summer days. I've also been feeling super inspired and have done some fun art and sewing projects lately that I'll share with you in another post very soon, I promise ;v;! But in this post I wanna share the last big event I went to, which was Frill 2013!

Even though I don't wear lolita anymore, I volunteered with some friends to help out at Frill 2013, a lolita fashion convention held in Atlanta at the beginning of June. I wasn't really expecting to enjoy a lot of the events because I'm not quite interested in the fashion too much, but I got to hang out with my Friends Jesse, Ayu, and Malice the whole time! I got to see Caylee for a while on Saturday too which was sooo great! I haven't had a chance to most of them for a while before then, so having good friends around made the experience totally worth it ;v;! 

Friday was totally the most fun day. It was before the con, so we all got to work together on the set up of the boutique and whatnot ;v;. Later that night, there was a Fashion Walk, but It wasn't really our jam, so we mostly went along to take pictures and ended up splitting off from the huge group to grab burritos!

A picture of some cute stuff in the boutique I took during set up.

My outfit on Friday!
Everything's secondhand or thrifted, except for my bralette which is Forever21, and my button and Tote which are from the lovely Jesse

Malice, Jesse, Me, and Ayu! 

Our delicious dinner that we ditched the group for hehehe!

Saturday was the last day that I went, but It was honestly pretty boring since I just worked in the boutique for most of the day. I did get to catch a couple of my friends panels and go out to lunch with them, so that was stellar! 

My outfit on Saturday! 
All thrifted and seconhand again, except for my skirt which is H&M, and my buttons which are Teenmermaid and Starlight Deco Dream.

Ayu and Jesse being sweethearts as always ;u;. 

My darling Caylee!

Me and jesse were goofing around on the way to grab lunch and ended up posing with this guy ;v;.

Isn't this such a sweet candid? Credit to Jesse again ;u;

I was asked to model in the Frill Fashion Show this year by the directors, and agreed because I really think modeling is so much fun! We ended up cramped up in this tiny hallway for the better part of five hours unfortunately, but I wore lolita again for the show and had a lot of fun! ;u; I don't have any pictures of me from the show, but I have a couple from beforehand.

All dressed up and ready! Dress by Nemeth Wild.

Donni and me together! Donni just looked way too fierce.

Frill was a really great time to catch up with friends! I had so much fun being around and seeing everyone again, and modeling is always something I love to do ;v;. I actually was the first person to walk in the show! It was really fun hahaha.

So, thanks so much for droppin' by! I'll try really hard to have a post of everything I've been drawing and sewing up next week. I'm going on a small vacation with a couple of friends to Savannah pretty soon so I'll be blogging about that too, ;u;! See you soon, sweeties!
