Peaceful Days in England 

Hello dear readers! How are you? 

ごきげんよう!サフィラです。

In April I went home for a little while. We had some nice sunny days though it was still a little chilly for the time of year. 

4月イギリスに帰って来ました!少し寒かったですが、結構いいお天気でした。平和な生活を過ごしました。 
In spring the woods are carpeted with bluebells.

  森の中でブルーベルが咲いていました。

  Our sweet little cat Nikita, who had a bath while I was at home! She’s an old lady now but she complains as loudly as always….

うちのニャンコ、ニキタちゃん。今年18歳になります! We found fragments of a beautiful blue egg while walking at Selbourne.  

お散歩して綺麗な青い卵を見つけました。
  
 We went to Lewes on a rather grey and cold day. I found some good things at the charity shops and bookshops though!

これはルイス城です。ルイスはいい町ですよ!アンティーク屋さんと本屋さんで少し有名です。
I miss England very much, but I’ve made a life in Japan which I am happy with. I hope I can continue going home often!

イギリスに行ったことがありますか?どうでしたか?

Thanks for reading and see you again soon!

ILD Cats Tea Party

Hello dear readers! How are you?

ごきげんよう!サフィラです!

At the weekend I attended the TIL International Lolita Day tea party at the Grand Hyatt hotel in Roppongi. The theme was ‘Cats Tea Party’ so I wore Triple Fortune’s koma neko print.

週末国際ロリィタの日のお茶会に行きました。テーマは猫のティーパーティーでしたのでトリプルフォーチュンさんのこまねこのスカートをはいて和ロリのコーデを作りました。

  
It was my first time trying out wa-lolita after many years of consideration! I suppose I went the safe route with a Japanese print. Here’s a closeup of the print:

可愛いこまねこのアップです↓  
Cute!! I started collecting koma inu recently, I really love them.

最近狛犬にはまっています!  
I tried a cat ear hairstyle with my wig. It was very easy, just roll up a section on each side and then put in lots and lots of pins.

猫耳のヘアアレンジをしました! 
It’s a bit hard to see but I used red eye makeup for a ‘wa’ look.

赤系のメークもしました。少し見づらいですけどね!

  
It was very peaceful at the hotel and I particularly liked the savory menu items and also the tea itself which was baked apple flavour. It had a nice natural and not too sweet taste.

キッシュと紅茶はとても美味しかったです!  
The little apple tart looked so pretty! The chocolate cake was probably my favourite dessert though.

甘いものの中でチョコレートケーキが一番好きでした。  

It was a big meet up so it was hard to talk to everyone, however I really enjoyed seeing everyone’s wonderful outfits, particularly how each person interpreted the theme differently. I’m really grateful to our mods for organising such lovely meet ups; it isn’t easy but it’s much appreciated!

皆さんはとても素敵なロリィタのお洋服を着て来ました。楽しかったです!

How did you celebrate International Lolita Day? Thanks for reading and see you next time!

Tea at Amberley Castle

Hello dear readers! How are you?

ごきげんよう!サフィラです。

In April I went home for a little while to celebrate my parents’ birthdays, which are very close together. For my mother’s birthday we went to Amberley Castle in Sussex for afternoon tea.

今年4月イギリスに帰って両親の誕生日のお祝いしました。母の誕生日サセックスのアンベリー城でアフタヌーンティーをしました。

  
It was the first time we had been to the castle, despite living quite close by! We were very glad that we went at last, as it’s so beautiful. We were also lucky with the weather which was clear and sunny.

実家はサセックスですが、アンベリー城は初めてでした!とても綺麗でした。  
Tea was very nice, the highlight being the scones which were light and delicious and served along with lots of lovely clotted cream! The sandwiches were a bit more interesting than the standard, with apple and beetroot among the fillings.

スコーンは軽くてすごく美味しかったです!

  
After tea we had a wander round the grounds, which are beautiful. There were lots of doves about and we could hear a peacock although we couldn’t see him.

お茶をしてお庭でお散歩しました。白い鳩がいました、そしてクジャクの声がしましたが見えませんでした!

  
It’s been a while since I’ve been able to spend the day with my mother on her birthday, so I’m happy that it all turned out so nicely! 

母の誕生日は一緒に過ごして良かったです。素敵な一日でした。
