[5.] "Foreign" lolitas, part 3...

Good afternoon readers ^-^!
 Part 3 of my "foreign lolita friends" is all about France.

I've been to Paris 3 times now!

~* Trip 1 *~

The first time I went was quite a hilarious 1 day trip.
I was still living in The Netherlands at that time.
The schedule was crazy!

I left The Netherlands at 23:30 at night.
Arrived in Paris at 08:00 in the morning.
Got back on the bus at 20:00 in the evening.
And was back in The Netherlands at 01:30 at night!

It was a fun trip I took with 3 of my friends.
And as poor students at the time, 
we were so happy it was only €26 per person!
If you're Dutch and you want a bargain like that,
look on: http://www.oad.nl

Got a little bit side tracked there, sorry!
On to lolita goodness :3

~* Trip 2 *~

 The second time I went to Paris, was business related.
In my spare time, I wanted to meet up with the local lolis!

Fortunately I was already friends with Pauline through the internet.
Though not from Paris, Pauline came to visit me <3
We had such a lovely day!

It was the 1st of February 2011.

A bit of sightseeing - it was cold & wet, but I love this photo of the Eiffel Tower I took!

 Of course, the first thing we did was visit the lolita shops Paris has!

Baby, the Stars Shine Bright

Angelic Pretty

After visiting them, we got kinda hungry!
So went to a place called "Princess Crêpe".

How the shop looks from the outside! The crêpes were so yummy!

A close-up of Pauline & I <3
My outfit that day, it was sooooo cold and the lighting was sooooo bad - sorry!

  1. Aww thank you for the kind words, you already know how i feel about you and how happy i was to have met you in person. It was the second time i ever met any foreign lolitas, living in the "end of europe" doesn't make it easy. Still if you ever feel like coming over, please say so. You'll have a place to stay and i'd love to show you around.
    A big big kiss (miss you and wish i could go again this year),

    1. Me too & I'm glad you like what I wrote!
      If I ever make it to Porto I'll definitely let you know <3 I can't go to Paris again this year either, but hopefully everyone who does will have a nice time xxx

  2. XD Joyous day!!! Everything looks so wonderful.Love this blog! ^_^

    1. Yes, so many nice days ^-^!
      Thank you so much babes <3
