Review: DollyEye Rosy Rosa Violet

Hello my dear readers!

It's been a long time since the last lens review - I've had these since winter but because I was working so much I barely found time to doll up and go out, and when I did the light was already abysmally bad. But now summer has come, and the evenings are still bright so I was able to take some photos
for a review :)

With my new raven pendant from Talking To Myself Jewelry

The lenses I am wearing here are DollyEye Rosy Rosa Violet and as usual, they are from Lensvillage.
I picked these lenses because I fell in love with the pattern - as the name of the lens already indicates, it looks like tiny, winding roses. It's really very pretty, and I hoped that the fact that the color fades towards the middle would allow the purple color to blend in with my natural eye color.
They come in several colors and of course with prescription!

A book that changed my life

Last week, German author and blogger Guddy shared a picture asking to "Name a book that changed your life" and since we only recently talked about our favorite childhood books, I was reminded of my favorite book again: The Golden Compass - or rather, the entire His Dark Materials Trilogy by Philip Pullman.

As you can see, the German books are quite old and well-used. We're missing the English version of book 1, I guess I should get it some time soon!

The second time I thought about the books again was when I realized that I forgot to post one day of the #piitstagram challenge (you can find more information about what it is in this entry and my previous posts on my Instagram): to post a picture of my favorite book.

I realized that there is a lot I want to say and typing it all on my phone in an instagram post will not be sufficient. So I decided to write a blog post.

Picture My Day #20

Yesterday was once again "Picture My Day" Day!
This time organized by Owley, I was actually prepared this time in advance and set a cell phone alarm to remind me about the day before midnight... but then my day was so boring that throughout I ended up not taking many photos after all XD
But anyhow, here's my day in pictures!

And of course I didn't get to bed before midnight XD

40 days no meat personal challenge, PIIT28 and other health and food blabla

Hey guys,

How was your week end?
For me, these days I'm a bit stressed, but in a very positive way because there's a lot of events with friends or family - unfortunately, they mostly involve food and I think by now I feel like I'm in my third month of "food pregnancy" XD

It also comes at a bit of an inconvenient time, because this year, I decided to eat no meat for lent, and in Austria (especially on the country side), many restaurants have very limited numbers non-meat dishes on their menu. While I am not religious, I like the idea of setting myself a fixed time frame or deadline to do something, it helps me stay motivated. Originally, I wanted to learn how to cook new recipes without meat. I don't eat it very often, but I'm very unoriginal when it comes to cooking, so we usually end up eating the same 20-30 meals over and over. Well, it didn't go as planned because I had so little time to cook in general that I quickly reverted back to my well known recipes, although I learned about some meat alternatives and got a bit creative considering where I can leave it out or substitute it with something else.

 Fallaffel instead of Chili wraps turned out to be really great, I just have to learn to make them all by myself instead of buying the ready-made ones ^^"

Yuki Matsuri Tea Party @KHM Vienna

Hello my dear readers!

Are you tired of Lolita content yet? No? Well then continue reading please! :)

Last week end, there was a small Tea Party in Vienna, organized as always by Gothic Lolita Austria ♥ At that week end, there was also the Yuki Matsuri, a small and new convention, and the Tea Party basically was part of the convention, though not at the same venue. To get a ticket for the Tea Party, I also had to get a Sunday ticket for the con, so I spent a full day in Vienna and had lots of fun!

The venue for the Tea Party was the beautiful KHM - Kunsthistorisches Museum. Last time I went there in 2014, and it was actually the first time that I wore Lolita in public for an occasion other than a meet up! The employees at the museum were really nice back then, and also this time. When I arrived, I was a bit late because I came by car and had underestimated the traffic, but luckily there was a guest list so I could get in without hurrying to the location of the convention first to pick up my physical ticket.
