Good Bye ♪


As most of you know, I've spent the past months over in the UK but now my return to Germany is only a couple days away.



During my stay I've had plenty of time re-evaluating life and thinking of where I want to see myself in the future and I think I finally came to the conclusion to say good bye to most of my pastel self.
Maybe you saw it coming -  I kinda did, I'm not gonna lie. Though I got to say, I don't know how final it is. Chances are, I might be sporting my fairy side on future cons but it's impossible for me to predict that at this point.
As for now, I've made peace with the thoughts of leaving this fashion. It's been a big inner struggle for me, especially as all of this has been a major part of my life. But I feel also that now is the perfect time to move on and to make it official.

Well, it's not really sudden news considering how sparse my appearances in this fashion were in all of these past months. But I'm happy with this decision and I feel like making things more or less final will life a heavy weight off of me. I no longer feel obliged to keep up with all this, I no longer feel like I owe something. And even though this might hit some of my followers a little bit hard I hope you can all understand why I'm making this decision.
I need to clear up things for me, once and for all and in a way I moved on a long time ago. My priorities have made a 180° turn and I'm far from being the person I was 1 or 2 or 5 years ago.
That doesn't mean I have necessarily changed as a person but my path is another one.

After all, that's what all this life is about - figuring it out.

This fashion has been a huge part of my life. I've met amazing people thanks to it and I hope I could share some of my adventures on this blog to your enjoyment. 

Thank you for staying with me through all these years, it's been an amazing time!

As for Pastel Raindrops - I'm afraid this is another journey which ends here. Perhaps I'll pick up blogging at another point of my life, at least I'd love to, but I can't make any promises. And even if I did, it'd bee something completely different. So here's another farewell with that.

Lastly I'd like to announce that once I've settled back in at home, I'll be going through my closet and I'll be parting with probably a lot of my things. Granted, I'll be keeping some of my favourites - at least for now - but there'll be a major clean out.
Look out on my FB page for further announcements on that. That's also where I'll be selling most of the things in case you're interested in that.

Now, this has been a long entry with somehow sad news.
I'm sorry for ending things like that but know that I'm not gone for good. I'm just taking different directions.





Once again, thank you for all your love and support, it's been one of the best times of my life. Sounds cheesy but it's true.

Much love,
Mio

Update!



Hellow!

This is just a tiny update to let you all know what up and coming!

I know, I know, PR has been terribly neglected, which is not necessarily because I don't have things to blog about but more because I don't have much time to take care of it right now as well as a change of priorities for me. I'm not going to go into much detail about this now because that would go a little too far.

Now, already weeks ago my paid photobucket account expired which leaves me with a limited bandwidth. Due to the amount of traffic I get here that goes hand in hand with my pictures disappearing. I TRIED to fix that but for some reason I couldn't get my account renewed. Anyway, I'll take the opportunity to switch to a different host but for that I will have to re-upload and change all the image files on here, which will take up a lot of time I don't have right now. So I'm pretty much forced to make-do with this now, meaning that for most of the time PR will be down on all images. This sucks but I can't change that right now.

Which leads me to the main factor that is taking away all my time.
Other than me trying not to spend oh-so much time online I have been planning my university term abroad, working on many things for uni and working on my job. For the past months this has taking up basically all of my weekdays. Either I've been at uni or at work.
On Monday, however, I will be finally leaving my home to move to Nottingham, UK for the next six months! There I'll be continuing my fashion design studies, focussing on accessory design, mainly.
So yep, I got exciting things ahead of me!

As I'll be trying to really focus on my life and studies there I will not be online very much and I decided to not document my travel online. Maybe this will bum out some but I figured most will not be interested in this anyway and I don't want to waste much energy on something like that. 

Guess that is all for now! I apologise for the inconvenience caused on this blog and I hope to improve things here soon as I can.

See you back next year!

Much love,
Mio

A Fairy in Tokyo ♪ Day 2 (Part2)


What year is it? 2014?! ALREADY?!
Oh boy, I didn't forget you guys but I completely forgot the time, to say the least!

But instead of the usual explanations and excuses I'd rather continue where I stopped last time and show you what other things I saw on my 2nd day in Tokyo.
As you might remember from my last post, we've been to Laforet, a huge mall filled with all your favourite stores. After our walk around there our little field trip took us to Daiso.
Maybe you already heard of that store, it has a pretty cool concept because it carries all kinds of goods from stationary to kitchen supplies and everything is very cheap, with prices starting as low as 100yen (which currently equals roughly 1$).

Now, we also have such things as 1€ stores here in good old Germany and I know there are similar stores in many other countries as well but the wide range of items they carried and the fact a lot of them were adorably cute on top of that, was really overwhelming. We only spend what felt like a very short time there, because you kind of lose track of time in this store. I could've probably stayed in there for days, still discovering new, cute things to drop my money on.


All of these things are really just an excerpt of the huge variety of things at Daiso, just some of my favourites.

After leaving the paradise of cheap goods we went to Avantgarde, another store located in Harajuku. It's not only famous because its owner has the tallest mohawk in the whole wild world but also for it extraordinary tattoo tights!



TIGHTS! TIGHTS! TIGHTS!
I think I've never seen so many tights at once in a single place, I loved them ALL!

But not only was this place home to possibly the hottest leg-wear ever, it also had some really rad decorations around.

"Can I keep these?" These Campbell platform heels were to die for!
Lastly, we even got to take a picture with the master himself:



Our next stops through Harajuku took us to Nadia as well as 6%DOKIDOKI, some more absolute and utter favourites of mine!


Two super adorable staff girls!
Outside of the 6%DOKIDOKI store
I even got to take a picture with the very well known and lovely staff girl and shops own model Yuka!
I sadly didn't get around to take many pictures in or outside the store as it was slowly getting darker outside all ready but let me tell you, I was incredible happy I was able to visit this store. I really admire all the design work which is joined all around this label and I'm more than happy to call a few things from there my own, haha~


Next up was Kiddie Land! A big, big, big department store that carries products of all your favourite character goods, whether it'd be Hello Kitty, Disney all-stars, Rilakkuma or some of the many, many others. Trust me, they have everything.
Though I didn't really take many pictures here (Kaila got that covered for me haha), I did stumble across something...


At first I got hit on by this terribly odd creature but then - 

I stumbled across my one true love, Banana-san! Don't mind the dopey look on my face, I got lovestruck!


Our last stroll through the dark, yet light-flooded, streets of Tokyo took us to a candy store! And not just any, it was actually a Candy manufacturer and we had the pleasure to watch them closely, producing a batch of sweet robot candy.




Actually, I don't think I've ever seen how these kind of sweets are made, so it was really exciting and funny to watch. In the end we even got to try the tiny robots and they tasted robo-tasticly delicious!
In this store they sell all sorts of different coloured and patterned sweets and we were lucky to be gifted some for our travel home, how jolly! But to be honest, these are almost too gorgeous to simply eat away, as mouth-watering as they are.


This would also take me to the end of day 2! But there's still plenty to show you and as long as it may take, I promise you will get around to see it!
Hope you all had a wonderful start into this week, I'm looking forward to see you around next time ♥
Mio~
