Moon Visions

Hello, my dear readers ♥

In the past few months I became quite active on Etsy and VotočVohoz (which is place to sell/buy used clothes - Kleiderkreisel in Germany). The reason is that I opened a shop with harnesses and garters on Etsy and in case of VotočVohoz I really want to get rid of A LOT of my clothes.
...and you know that...while waiting for a new order, you´re browsing throught the website and when you finally sell and earn something you spent it right away because you just found something totally amazing and you have to have it ! I´m not alone in this, I´m sure about it =D

And so I discovered this magical Etsy store Raintower owned by beautiful bluecohosh. Everything there is handmade, hand dyed and from recycled materials. And - as if it wasn´t already enough - she´s making leggings as well *o* I missed the previous pair, so I was waiting patiently for a new one to appear and when they did I bought them immediately ♥ They came a few days after, packed in a cute piece of cloth, looking exactly as on the photo and they fit perfectly !

The second thing I want to show you is a great mori thing I found on VotočVohoz. What´s funny about it is that I was browsing through some "natural" and "mori" tags, discovered this beautiful frilly top.... and found out that the shop belongs to my dear friend Han =D instant purchase, of course !

Both things came in the mail at the same time and I was so happy about them that I wore both together right away ! Han even made for me a beautiful necklace to match the top as gift to the purchase ♥
Everything matched perfectly !
...and a day after I bought a pair of white shoes as well, but I already took these photos so maybe next time =) ♪

floral hairpins - H&M
feather earring - DIY
necklace - made by Han <- check out her Etsy store !
top - second-hand
leggins - raintower
sandals - from grandma

Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥

Gauklernacht on Kaltenberg 2014

Hello, my dear readers ♥

Since I started living in Ingolstadt, summer became my favourite season of the year - there so much to do here in Bayern ! Appart from really nice pool and beautiful lake just a few minutes from our house there are HISTORICAL FESTIVALS EVERYWHERE *o*
We already visited some of them this summer, but the most important was yet to come - Kaltenberg !

This year we decided to go only once (last year we were there three times =D), since we already saw the joust, but most importantly...it´s not that cheap to go there >_< After an amazing experience of the "Juggler´s Night" last year we decided for this one again. I have no idea why we thought that we could buy tickets at doors instead of buying them in pre-sale, so we ended up panicking on Friday morning while official FB said that it´s already sold out D= ...but pheeeeww in the end we managed to buy THE LAST TWO tickets for the night >_< next year I´m buying tickets in January to spare myself the stress =D

And it was AMAZING ♥ I´m soooooo happy that we were there, it´s such a magical place with such a possitive atmosphere in the air (partly thanks to a good beer and mead =D). Everyone is enjoying being there, dressed-up in historical clothing or just casualy, eating all you can because everything looks delicious and having fun ...
Time flies here so fast ! We were there for seven hours and it felt like nothing, at 2am in the morning when all shops were closing we were already dead tired but still wanted to stay there longer (as for me I wanted to stay there forever =D) ...

As I said before all tickets were sold out, so it was really crowded there but it wasn´t annoying...just a LOT of people around. As usual I spent all my money for burning incense at Al Mischas and I even got one to take with me - already burning - so I was annoying old people with the lovely smoke while watching the parade of jugglers mu ha ha ! I just had to buy a sack full of dried cinnamon apples, because they´re sooooo delicious ♥ We also met our dear friend Brigita who has a shop with weapons and armor there, but we hadn´t much time to chat since so many people wanted to buy something =) When the night came we were wandering through the magical forest and bought a really nice embroidered cloth with elephants in shop owned by a cute lady with a pointy mushroom hat =D ...I have to say that I want a hat like hers for a while now so when I found a shop with them in the forest I was so close to buying one......but they were too expensive for my wallet T_T I need to learn how work with felt so I can make one !

We had a delicious spinach dumpling and I just had to buy a plate full of Kaiserschmarrn with home-made Apfelmus (apple sauce?) whaaa it was delicious *o* not to mention the mead I had there ! ...maybe too much of it <_< (if you don´t want me drunk in an hour keep the mead hidden =D)

What is great on Gauklernacht appart from really good jugglers performing on every corner is that it lasts until 2am in the morning. It´s so beautiful to walk around everything lit by candles, lanterns and then by a huuuge fireworks in the middle of the night ♥

We stayed there till the end, but this year we decided to sleep in the car until morning light because the ride in the darkness through wilderness was too dangerous last year. And so we ended up home at 8am in the morning =D Party hard !

It´s a bit hard to take photos there since it´s a juggler´s "night" so it´s dark most of the time, but still we managed to take a few thanks to my bf´s hi-tech phone =D

It was really hot that night, so I was just a casual pixie in a hippie dress =) 
no need for my adventure equipment and cloak ♪

blurry photo of my pixie ear =)

There was this guy performing with geese again *o* he has a dog and commands him with flute and the dog commands geese - epic =D I had to give him my vote in the "King of the Jugglers" contest !

Spinach dumplings !
While I was waiting for my bf to get them, some guys started to talk with me because they liked my ears and also they tried to teach me how to pronounce "Knödel" in the right bayerisch way =D knöööödl !

oh! and the loot ! I almost forgot =D

it fits perfectly on our door !

And now it´s complete !
Have a nice day, everyone ♥

Summer Day in Augsburg ZOO

Hello, my dear readers ♥

A few weeks ago we went to a ZOO in Augsburg and did a little sight-seeing in the center of town as well. I like ZOOs so much *o* I don´t share this idea that animals shouldn´t be kept in ZOO because they´re suffering, so far what I visited - they always seemed very happy, in natural environment and in a good shape. No signs of tired, hungry, poor animals... I think that it´s much better for them to be in the ZOO than free but in a place where they are in constant danger of being killed by humans for fun or money...

And since I can´t have any cute fluffy pet at home, after some time I always need to be in animal presence to feel happy again =) My boyfriend knows this, so after I couldn´t go to a June lolita meet-up because of the train intervals on Sunday, he almost instantly decided that we´re going to the ZOO instead =D Of course it made my day 100% better !

The ZOO in Augsburg is the perfect size - not huuuuge like in Prague where you end totally dead after a whole day and still you didn´t see all animals. We needed only three or four hours and saw everything + I spent 40 minutes watching elephants, because I just love them ♥

We still had some time left after that, so we decided to take a look in the center as well. And we didn´t regret - Augsburg is such a pretty town ! Beautiful historical buildings and tiny cute canals through all the town center. To take a rest from walking all day we stopped to have a cake and tea in a really old patisserie Dichtl. All cakes there were sooo beautiful *o* I had a raspberry&prosecco desert and it was delicious ♥

And now for some cute photos & my outfit of the day !

these cute little birds were so busy making their rounded nests all over the tree =)

sorry for the weird photo, but MANED WOLVES ! They´re so beautiful *o* it was the first time I saw them !

they were so close *___*

baby meerkats ♥

This ostrich was judging everyone who passed by while the black shaved alpaca was chilling hard and laughing on us =D

Fennec ♥

nom nom nom ♥

And here is what I wore for that day - floral dress, crochet bag and rounded sunglasses - a bit like from ´60s =D

dress - Gudrun Sjõdén
bag - DIY
sandals - Reno

Do you like ZOOs? And what is your favourite animal ?
As I said before I love elephants, but also anteaters and because of The Owls of Ga´Hool I´m always looking for owls, especially Eurasian Pygmy Owl alias Kulíšek Nejmenší *o* they are the cutest !

Have a nice day, everyone ♥
