If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.

Annette and I planted some succulents in preparation to make terrariums together. I think they go wonderfully on my shelf.

Art, cute food, chocolate, and noodle wizards.

My secret santa gift from Aurelia, and Zumbo macarons.
I couldn't help myself and bought one of each flavour because the flavours were things like christmas pudding, caramel salted butter toast, candy cane, and finger bun.
The Lego Christmas tree in Pitt street mall.
I've never been into Haighs chocolates before and it's seriously one of the cutest stores ever. The chocolate was even better.
Dr. Seuss pop up gallery for Christmas in the QVB.
Annette and I went to Chef's Gallery for dinner, and watched a guy through a window making noodles by hand. He was stretching and throwing dough without even looking.
Piggy sesame buns for dessert!

A merry lolita christmas to you!

For our lolita community this year, Laura and I organised for everybody to go bowling.
Casual Christmas Coordinate:
Holy Night Story switching JSK by Angelic Pretty with matching headbow, Angelic Pretty socks from the Loyal Rosette series, gold tea parties from Antaina, shirt and accessories obtained by raiding my mother's wardrobe out of desperation.
The beautiful community of people who came to the meet up. It was too dark inside to take any decent photos which is a shame. But we all had a lot of fun. Zoe took out the top score out of everybody and I just threw gutter ball after gutter ball ending up coming dead last.
Christmas display in Darling Harbour.
We visited the giant snow globe in Market City.
You had to wear blue booties to go inside.
Lolitas in fake snow.
Annette and I taking selfies with the "snow" aka bubbles.
Christmas coordinates with bootie swag.
I'm going to be honest, I probably took around fifty photos of myself while I was in here.
Gangster snow man.
A snap of our little group that went inside the snow globe together. It was a shame we got split into two.

On Christmas Day at half past three make your self a cup of tea. I’ll think of you, you think of me, underneath the Christmas tree.

I went out for casual tea and conversation with a few close friends on a rainy day.
Jumperskirt by Emily Temple Cute, striped pullover from Dangerfield, boots are Vivienne Westwood for Melissa, and coat stolen from my mammy's wardrobe.
Navy x Cream x Purple
Pots of gingerbread, apple crumble and crème brûlée tea were shared between Sharon, April, Holly, Meg, Annette and I as we chatted in the Tea Centre de-stressing during the holiday period. The scones were huge, and the honey bread was cute.
Christmas trees in the sky.
I've never been in the Strand Arcade before and I walked around like a tourist taking photos of everything. I loved the colours and atmosphere.
There were specialty stores with all kinds of decorated chocolates and gingerbread.
The Aesop store, my holy grail of skincare.
T-Totaler pop up store display.

And is there honey still for tea?

International Lolita Day coordinate (summer):
Honey Cake JSK and matching socks by Angelic Pretty, blouse from KidsYoyo, biscuit bag from Angelic Prettty, shoes are An*Tai*Na, with accessories from Angelic Pretty, Chocomint and offbrand.
Honey cake is definitely my favourite Angelic Pretty print.
I really wish I had a red blouse instead, but decided to bring out the yellows and mustards in the print with a bright cardigan.
