New Job - Barista = Worries?

Things have been rather hectic around here lately. I've been out and abouts trying to deal with some rather personal issues about moving out on my own while my parents move away to the city up north. It's been very stressful so I haven't had much time to devote to Lolita at all. (If anything, I've been fueling my other secret obsession more than anything.)

However, I have great news for myself that's also quite scary.
I've landed a Job after many months of searching. At Starbucks.

I'm going to admit right now I don't know the slightest thing about coffee and everybody who knows me in reality knows straight out that I can't remember diddly-squat. I've also got a rather nasty case of generalized anxiety. Luckily, this branch is inside of a grocery store, surrounded by...2 others. (Starbucks in the chapters beside the store and a standalone right across the street. Surprising, huh?)
It shouldn't be that busy, right?

Anyways, at least I've finally nailed a job after many months of searching. Is it Lolita-like? I have no idea. At least I'll be able to say I make one damn good coffee soon.

Tell me ladies,
What's your job? Are you still searching? Do you consider your job to fit your lifestyle?

I love Thrifting + Contest Entry for Miss Lumpy

I love thrifting. I really do.
I could do a whole post about my love of hunting through a thrift store but I'm currently pressed for time at the moment so I'll be sure to put up a nice big guide to thrifting for Lolita soon! (Almost all my blouses are thrifted!)
I recently found an adorable blouse at Value Village for 2.99. It looks perfect with one of my JSKs! I'll be sure to post pictures...eventually. I don't have a camera at the moment. (Any suggestions for a cute cheap one?)

Anyways aside from the pointless chit-chat, I'm just putting in an entry for Miss Lumpy~
She's hosting a contest and I can never pass up a chance to win something!

Be sure to check her out!

A not so Lolita-Day

Lot’s of girls look forward to International Lolita day every twice a year. Honestly, it’s one of the best ideas the community has ever come up with in my opinion. There’s no better excuse to host a meet-up or even wear OTT out in public for no reason aside from the fact it’s your day to shine.

I’m going to be dead honest and say I’ve never celebrated the day. Why? I’ve never really been allowed to on those days. For some odd reason it always seems to be a “family day” at the last minute. It’s not like I know anybody who would go out to a teahouse dressed as dolls anyways, so it doesn’t bother me as much as it should. (Even though I’d love to do something on a day like this.)

This Lolita day was double bad.

I had done nothing but yard work and listen to parents degrade me as to how I don’t do any work as usual as I de-weeded our lawn and raked stones to landscape. Of course afterwards they had offered to buy me a new blouse and none of mine seem to fit anymore, but I couldn’t seem to find a blouse acceptable for both my mother and me. I became depressed so to say, and even when I did find a blouse I loved from Qutieland I couldn’t bring myself to buy it. (I’d rather save up and buy a whole bunch of things at once because their shipping is just so…)

I just became…depressed so to speak.
Has anybody else had a terrible day today? I’d really like to know I wasn’t alone on what’s supposed to be a Lolita’s Day.

Sorry for the first real post being a rant but I really needed to let that out.


The Cafe has been reborn!
I really didn't have the time to update due to school and life just getting in the way but now that I can dedicate some time to blogging I'm jumping back on the wagon. 
I don't really have much to say at the moment so until my first "real" post~
