latest buy & small room ideas

Hello everyone~
I'm greeting you with a sweet treat that is my latest favourite. Really reminds me of strawberry cake!

First of all, I brought my d.i.a. top home safely.
I was really happy about it, it's just as lovely in person as on the pictures. I wanted to buy some fitting pants and since my friend has some ripped pants with lace showing (take a look at the purikura from the last post), I wanted some like that too! They're pants from d.i.a. that are the same design.

I got a pair in black that was said to run small, so I bought a size bigger. But they are a little bit loose now ; ;

I'm thinking of giving them back now/selling them. Of course they can never achieve that fierce d.i.a. look, but they were way cheaper and I could still modify them. The endless question: Should I keep them or not?
On the other hand, apart from one pair, I don't have any fitting long pants anymore! Which is bad because I can feel winter approaching next month. This is not Japan, haha.

In the meantime I've been looking for apartments/places to live some days ago because -in case anyone missed it- I'm a university student from now! And my place is about 3 hours by train from the university ( ; ; )
I know I know, the semester is about to start, I am always late like that and never really care, haha. I have one more visiting coming up, and then an agency that promised me a visiting next week, but those agencies don't seem trustworthy to me!
Anyway, I hope I'm going to get something very soon and then I have big plans for the interior design (unless the uni stress will kill me). I looked through my collections of ageha issue scans and found quite nice examples of what I want. Those ideas are all for small rooms and I actually like the cozy idea more than big wide rooms.

One exception from happie nuts. I like how clear & white it is, even though very small, the white seems to make it appear at least a little more 'wide' and not too packed.

A possible reference for mature gals/gal mamas: Momoeri's room~ 
Not very stuffed, a bigger room with a clean design. Looks more 'useful', right? I'm not fond of it.

Sayo Hayakawa's room. She was my idol three years ago and even now I like the design she chose.
I'm not sure why she needs two beds, but the idea of having your couch next to the bed somehow pleases me.

Now my two top favourites

Bed next to the couch again, all in stylish black with sublte highlights. Looks like a guy's room almost, doesn't it?
I love the 'cool' feeling of it (though the audio equipment feels misplaced), I definitely want a room like this!

My favourite ever since I saw this in 2008.
Black and white/cream designed, combined beautifully and in a very clean composition. Even the bathroom, the fridge and the vacuum cleaner fit in the design!
I am dreaming of an apartment like this, but in Japan, not here. One day, one day, haha.

& at last, a bonus room picture

Ryoma Saegami's room.
Looks like 1K since you can't see much of it. Hosts have to save up, huh? Maybe he has a different room now.

august purikura!

I wanted to upload these since a while but they're bad quality (;  ;)
Click to make them bigger~

Hairset :D
Just on the way to this booth a group of hosts came up to talk to us and one was stubbornly asking for my number, over and over until we arrived at the game center. My friend was all like: 'He must be something like half black!' hahaha

I feel like an anime girl with a smirk in this one ( ̄ー ̄)

The most unflattering purikura, but they were fun! There was one more where I laughed and my mouth came out wide opened in the purikura. So terrible, I deleted it when we picked which shots we wanted haha.

The last purikura I took. This one means a lot to me because that day was special.

angels & demons game.

Ahh, my package is stuck in customs T_T; Why is it always such a pain to order from overseas?
Is there actually a way to order something from Japan without spending, excuse me, 30€+ extra because of fees, shipping and customs? I don't mind the fees and the additional shipping but why customs? Why go through all the trouble of going there and explaining them it's not drugs or whatever else they want to know?
To top it all off, I asked the guy who shipped it what price he declared because it got into customs and he just tells me my package could not be delivered because I was absent (that is what EMS says, which is not true obviously).
Now this is the best opportunity to say: I get enraged by Japanese people so easily ^^; Not exactly all Japanese people, mostly just people from around Tokyo. Why believe something a website says but not a person who called the customs and post office? Of course he didn't know I called, but since I said it is there... what reason do you have to not believe me?

Anyway. The shirt I won at mbok auction (TT_TT)
Probably going to pick it up Wednesday or so because I'm going to have a look at an apartment (yes, maybe moving out soon!) which is kind of on the way~

I hope I can bring it home safely!
I wanted to try on the grey version in Tokyo last month, first a shop staff girl said 'sure, okay!', then another girl came up and said no. By now of course I got it's generally not allowed to try on shirts in their store. But it's always worth a try, haha. Especially since Tokyo people keep bullying me too! (It might be a love hate thing, haha.)

psycho diva & a casual outfit

Greetings, Earthlings!

Have you seen this lovely PV by Born yet? Have you payed attention to Ryouga's (vocal) beautiful teeth? (*_*)

I'm most likely developing a mild crush on him now because I am quite crazy about Japanese people with nice teeth and a beautifully shaped pair of lips, especially the smooth motions that come along with them~
・・・ enough sweet-talking. About the PV,  is that in a foreign hostess club? Or maybe that is just my humble impression.

But Ryouga's wild visual-kei hair not only makes me want to see them live again, it also makes me want to style myself more... aggressive. Tsuyome style is becoming very popular here lately, isn't it? I'm very into it too, but I'm very light skinned so it looks different on me. But anyway, I want to put an outfit and some suiting hairdo together soon.
As for yesterday, I had a very casual outfit but even like that I felt too overdressed, and I was freezing(!). 

Skirt is from Ghost of Harlem, apart from that no special brands~
My hair was naturally curly like that after tying it to a top bun after showering. I thought it was nice and fitting for the outfit, but I like straight hair a lot more ; ; I feel way too overdressed here in Germany, so I am kind of unsure about trying more aggressive styles because I feel uncomfortable when everyone looks at me. It's like you're forced to wear something toned down, even in your free time. Anyone has the same problem?

Oh and not to forget - I bought a new ipod back cover. It was cheap, so the top two rows of rhinestones are kind of standing out because there's no little stones inbetween them, but still the quality is not too bad and it's better than my last case (soft one) so far - I'm not complaining because 6$ is really cheap for this ;D

Kabukicho crossing

Just randomly throwing this picture in a friend took by chance in Kabukicho. I never ever in my life even made tourist pictures in Japan, so standing there in front of my beloved district is somewhat special to me T_T;
Even if there's idiots talking to you or you can't explain your friend where a certain salon/restaurant/meeting point is, it's always fun around there! And I will always miss this place.

Besides... right now I am debating with myself whether I should buy white over the knee boots or black ones. I have too many black shoes and a lot of black/dark clothes, so I'm craving for the white ones but I am scared that I won't be able to combine them then (Yumachi kind of inspires me but she has lots of white/light-coloured clothes). And I'm not planning to change my whole wardrobe soon.
Which colour would you choose?

That's really all, so let me end this entry with a lovely quote of Daria :D
