I had a magical time in Wellington! My mum took my brother and I up for a holiday and what a great idea :B It was pretty windy that day up the whole country so we had fun plane rides. On the first night (thursday) we looked around town for a bit then went back to the motel to hit the sack in preparation for an early morning start! (I warn, nothing is an order lol) FRIDAY:
The amazing Wellington lolitas hosted a meet in honour of me and it was unbelievably awesome!! My brother tagged along to meet everyone and take pictures for us but we were so late o: we couldn't find a bus for sooo long but we finally arrived about an hour late D: The tea party was beautiful - Ellie even made a delicious marshmallow pie, there was chocolate cake and lollies and lovely tea! Thanks to that I have discovered that I like black English breakfast tea!
Earlier that day I went to the zoo (a couple of pictures are down below further) and had been walking around for 4+ hours in the hot sun and wind.. I felt kinda embarrassed rocking up with my make up melting off and windblown hair haha I even forgot my waist ties asdfghjkl I am an eyesore but it was still so much fun though!
^wee Toast (the cat) getting pats! Such an awesome cat hehEveryone had adorable and creative outfits! Not only are they a well dressed community but welcoming, hilarious, beautiful, diverse, polite, friendly, fun and so much more. I'm so lucky to meet them and if I do end up moving there next year, I'd be honoured to be a part of their group o:
Later that night, we went to the park and played on the flying foxes! It was a lot of fun (: we also enjoyed the other playground equipment and indulged in some chatting haha. We then all departed for home as it was dark and late~
Here are the zoo photos! I'm not spamming with all the animals - there were so many and they were all super adorable and cool but I picked these two cutie pictures :D lions spooning and a sweet otter!!
SUNDAY: This day we went to Te Papa museum and it was very interesting. Below is a picture from a 1950s Vogue exhibition which I thought was very pretty and full of petticoats! Unfortunately I didn't get any outfit pictures from that day :c I wore a pinkxblack coordinate featuring Bodyline and AP.
SATURDAY: Shopping day!! I found this gorgeous Peter Rabbit cup and couldn't resist getting it.. I mean, aw look at the cuteness!
I bought a fair bit of clothing but it's casual/ non lolita stuff most of it - I did get two pairs of tights in deep purple and bordeaux which I plan to coordinate with. I also got this wee bird to make a headdress with and my mum bought me the black rose ring which I've ended up wearing almost daily! It goes well with lolita too.
I got my nipple pierced on the Saturday! I've wanted to do so for a while and I'm really happy with it. This day we also went to an Inter-sex awareness celebration which was awesome and so much fun, I'm gutted I didn't have my camera! It was such a great trip and I'd love to go back there again.
Since I've been back I got my second tattoo! Click here to see it (: I've also become the proud owner of an albino rat because her original owner isn't allowed pets at the university hostel.. I've always wanted a rat and she's so precious! I love her lots and I'm sure she'll feature a few times on here. A very important thing to mention; I have been accepted into the course I wanted and I start on the 20th of Feb!! I hope it all goes well and is a great beginning to the career in fashion that I dream of.
I think a reason I haven't been posting so much is because I haven't treated myself to a new lolita piece in so long D: I must get around to that as soon as I have the money! Thanks for reading and I hope this was actually an interesting post for once :D
