Snack Time: Chai Caramel Popcorn!

Hi friends! <3

I'm back with another new snack to try. Found this at Tops while out getting some groceries.

$2 (on sale!)- Chai Caramel Popcorn- USA

Let's open it up...


One little piece...

Nom nom…


This was really good! The popcorn was coated fairly evenly with the caramel and spice mixture. It had a nice sweet flavor with just a hint of spice. Not like a hot spice that burns your tongue, but a more subtle one that warm you from the inside. I especially liked the crunchiness combined with the cinnamon and caramel flavors. The ingredient label mentions some other ingredients such as coconut, but I couldn't really taste them. Which is fine with me as I'm not much of a coconut fan. With the sale price, it's a real great deal for such a large bag. I would probably get it again!

Share 5 Winter Meetup Ideas...

Hi friends! <3

With the cold and snowy weather here to stay for awhile, it seems reasonable to accept that meet ups will decrease in frequency. While some may welcome the break to focus/catch up on other things, there are those who are determined to continue planning/attending meetups. Despite the weather not being so suitable, there are plenty of ideas for winter meetups out there. Read on for some I thought would be enjoyable.

Cookie Decorating

Who doesn't like cookies? I know baking can be messy and time consuming, but we could do it beforehand and just have fun decorating the cookies at the meetup.  Maybe some simple sugar cookies or cut outs. Everyone could bring something such as different flavored frostings, sprinkles, and other items to decorate with.

Tea Tasting/Swap

As a lolita, one gets into drinking and amassing quite a collection of tea. I think it would be fun for each person to bring a few different kinds. We could lay them out on a table and fill up a little bag with interesting ones to try. We could even taste test them beforehand by making a small pot of each kind to sample. It would also be a great way to save money before buying yet another unknown box of tea you may or may not end up liking.  Who knows, you might even find a new favorite!


Sometimes it's great to just sit back and relax while enjoying time with friends. Whether it's learning a new skill or working on individual creative projects, it can be a nice way to pass the time together. It would be the perfect time to sew on that button that fell off your blouse at the last meetup, or continue working on that special accessory to go with a new dress you have arriving in the mail soon.

Holiday Market

A more seasonal event, but it can be fun to stroll through a holiday market.  You can interact with local vendors and crafters while enjoying the festive feeling. Also, you never know what interesting things you'll come across.

New Year's Meal

With the new year upon us, a meal with your lolita friends can be a great thing. It's a wonderful time to look back on the past year and discuss upcoming plans. It could be something as simple as a casual get together or a more formal sit down event.

What do you think? Do any of these meetups sound interesting to you? Check out what ideas other bloggers came up with at:

Wardrobe Post: 2019!

Hi friends! <3

It's time for the annual posting of my wardrobe!
This is my sixth year doing one, but I've been into lolita for nine years now.

You can view earlier wardrobe posts by clicking the year below:

This year, I finished clearing out the remainder of items that I didn't really wear or need.  I worked on selling those items off, while also trying to consider items more carefully before purchasing. I'm happy to say that all of the dresses, blouses, and accessories obtained during this past year will work with my wardrobe quite well. Highlight wishlist items acquired include Angelic Pretty's Heartbeat Ribbon Ring, Bashful Bear Drops Necklace, Dreamy Horoscope Unicorn Necklace, and BTSSB's Love Moon Princess OP. 

I reviewed the wardrobe goals I set last year, and set new ones for this year too. You can read about that at Wardrobe Goals: 2018 & 2019!

My style continues to be mostly sweet with some sweet/classic and gothic pieces mixed in. I love being able to wear what I want without too much issue trying to coord it.

Note: I'm just going to be sharing skirts, dresses, and other newly acquired items this time. New dresses will be in bold type. If you are curious about an item/brand/where it came from, just ask.

Enjoy! :-)

I began organizing some of my brand accessories with these cute storage containers. It's a great way to keep rings from getting scratched up and necklaces from tangling. It also makes it easy to find a certain piece when I'm coording.
