*Angelic Pretty* Sugary Carnival JSK ~ [HD photos]

[Hello Lace Link]

In 2009 Angelic Pretty released what would soon become a "holy grail" and "dream dress" for many lolitas in years to come. Sugary Carnival was popular enough to justify to AP to release another run of the series- though with a few minor tweaks this time such as the back lacing not using the dress's lace for the loops. Regardless of releases this series, and particularly the black colorway, became a long sought-after print (on top of being one of the most reviled at the same time). Though AP has release many amazing dresses since this is still one of my absolute favorites; to the point I sometimes joke with friends that I want to be buried in it!

In most photos I have seen of this dress the colors get very washed out. It's a pity really since in reality they are so rich and pretty in person~

Jumper skirt stats:

Bust: 34~38 in (88~98 cm)
Waist: 26~30 in (68~78 cm)
Length: 33 in (84 cm)

*Angelic Pretty* Wrapping Ribbon JSK (2014) ~ [HD photos]

[Lolibrary Link]
Angelic Pretty's 2014 release of "Wrapping Ribbon" brought new styles and colors. Of those my favorite has been the new JSK which features removable lace at the bust, high quality satin bow details and delicate lace detailing along the princess seams.

Of the color selections mint seemed to be the most popular as it was the first to sell out. I had a bit of trouble picking which one I liked most but ended up getting blue. I like this dress so much I hope to pick up the lavender as well! (Though sadly it is now sold out on the site, boo~)

Jumper skirt stats:

Bust: 34~42 in  (86~106 cm)
Waist: 31~39 in  (80~100 cm)
Length: 34 in (87 cm)

Lost Time

My goodness it's been forever since I've updated anything outside of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

I've had a huge problem lately with time. Keeping track of it, getting a feeling for the days passing, and realizing just how much time has passed between events. I noticed today it's been a staggering 8 months since I uploaded anything to Youtube and the same could be said for this blog. I have a lot of back posts I could, and plan to, update. But that doesn't mean tyhey'll be of as good of quality as if I wrote them right after any of the said events.

Oi... what has gotten in to me? Each day I think "I want to write more" "I need to update my blog" "I should record a video of some sort" or something along those lines. I WANT to do these things but I seem to not have the -time-.

A few weeks back I burned up all my vacation time. I had two weeks off. This doesn't sound like a lot for people but for me it was the longest vacation I've had since I started this job 8 years ago. Just two weeks. I did more traveling, hikes, social events and slept better than I had since I could remember. I liked it actually- a great deal. And since heading back to work I've been in a HUGE funk. I want that fun time as much as possible- not just on the weekends.

I really need to start paying attention to my time. To make as much of it as productive as possible. This is going to be hard but it seems as though I'm getting my ambition back to TRY to do things. So let's hope I can keep this ball rolling and actually do something with myself out of the herd-like conventional job space ^^;;

I'm a bear!
