Photo Dump!

Hi all my lovelies!

First off, I've made a headbow! (Or hairbow.)
It was some scrap cloth I had, I'm guessing that it's cotton...and there was some small lace left over from various crafts.
Do excuse my face!
Me with the hairband on! (Messy hair ><) And yess that's my hideous school uniform...
A perfectly good hairband for school.
Close up of the bow. I know that the middle bit is too long, I'll try to change it next time ><

Next, part of my Taobao stuff arrived! All of the jewellery was lovely :) and I adore my petticoats! Now I'm saving up my money to pay Dolphin back T_T
That's me. I was not able to selfie any pic that shows me full length and I was just excited to show the petti poof but I guess it didn't come out very good :/ behind me you can see my messy and non-loli wardrobe...also I do love my skirt although it is not loli...it could be causal punk lolita though if I pair it with a black blouse (the right black blouse of course)
I also got some stuff from Accessorize on a trip with Rainbow and several other friends, I got a pair of lace gloves and two fabric flower hair clips ^^
Soft and lacy!
Me with the flower clip...oh gosh I look chubby >< (oh well)
Last but not least I found a fan in my pile of junk ^^ It is sort of loliable I guess if paired with qi-lolita or wa-lolita (I think wa-lolita is more suitable as I got this in Japan?)
Bonus: A pic of Rainbow (Lettie is her real name in case anyone was wondering) and me when we hung out in Easter!


Favorite Song: Hollaback Girl by Gwen Stefani or Hello Kitty by Avril Lavigne. (I love her decora music video but everyone says she's copying Gwen Stefani's Harajuku Girls...no way :/ Gwen Stefani is a lot more creative but Avril is just cute ^_^)

Music: Top 10 List!! + Update on Taobao Order + Movie and Book Reviews

Hi all my lovelies!

I've decided to make top 10 lists here, this is my first one :) they won't be weekly or anything, just when I want to make them.

1. High Hopes - Kodaline (I can play this on guitar!)
2. Don't Let Go - Lea Michele (I'm really hoping this would be her third single. I can't wait for the On My Way music video!)
3. Sunburn - Ed Sheeran (This is a recommended song from Rainbow. It reminded her of someone special to us and brings up so many memories. *sighs in nostalgia and wipes tear from eye*)
4. Shake It Out - Glee - Santana, Mercedes and Tina (I haven't listened to the original version but this is impressive.)
5. Drunk On You - Luke Bryan (Another song I can play on guitar. I love the country-ness of it)
6. Hollaback Girl - Gwen Stefani (Addictive song warning!)
7. Piano - Ariana Grande (One of the newer songs I love. This one stood out to me from all the other songs of the Yours Truly album. Oooh I might do a review on that album soon!)
8. Under the Sheets - Ellie Goulding (Very old. But a classic Ellie song. My first one in fact.)
9. Animal - Glee - The Warblers (I danced to the original version in for a cheerleading routine and I was SO overjoyed to find that Glee had a version.)
10. Rat a Tat - Fall Out Boy feat. Courtney Love (I fell in love with this after watching the Young Blood video. I love the whole Save Rock and Roll Album!)

I'm fully aware that some of these aren't new songs :) but I love revisiting old ones...

Update on the Taobao order:
I changed the shoes to these and the size to 38, these are from Angelic Imprint and I ordered them in white.
Ordered this in addition to the bell shaped one because I have no idea which one to use on my dress.
Ordered two of these in dark red from Thorn Bird, they were pretty cheap.
Also from Thorn Bird, still dark red, I read from reviews that the rose would be smaller, but I don't mind.
From RedMaria*Lolita, also in red :)
I know the accessories don't seem to correspond much with my white colors of my dress and shoes but I'm planning to buy a black blouse at Anna House soon when I have money ^^  (and I don't even have to wait for shipping since I'm going to the physical shop! Yay!)

I went to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier today and I have to say it's a 10/10. Absolute perfection and Natasha was totally kickass. Also I totally ship her and Nick Fury.
Aww! Now I'm hungry...
I also watched I Am Number Four (Starring Dianna Agron) yesterday and I loved it. 9/10, the movie wasn't as good as the book. (yeah I read the book too.) For me it was all about Dianna anyway. But killing Henri off halfway was just mean.
Her beauty...I can't even...
By the way has anyone read the Land of Stories by Chris Colfer? I love the first book! (It's a little kiddie for a fourteen year old, but hey, IT'S CHRIS COLFER! How bad can it be?)
Love the book, but love the guy more.

Barrette!

Hi all my lovelies!

This is a short post but I'm just so excited! (It's not much, believe me.)
I've made a barrette!

The ribbon rose was silver, which I made according to a pinterest tutorial here: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/144255994288141978/

The beading lace was from a fabric store and I got it ages ago but never used it. I love my new barrette

By the way, I am currently crocheting a drawstring bag, but it's looking filmsy :( 
I'm using lilac crochet thread, which is pretty cheap, it's not much more expensive than acrylic. I hope it turns out well. I'll be posting pictures soon. 

Song of the day: Rap God by Eminem! 


And in the meantime I'll be making more barrettes! (I've always wanted to start a skirt but that is a helluva lot of hand sewing for a girl whose parents refuse to buy her a sewing machine.)

Oooh, and check out Dolphin's blog here: http://meinthepopworld.blogspot.hk/ (Still not as good as mine!)

Online Shopping!

Hi all my lovelies!

I'm getting an order through Taobao! Sweet Dolphin helped me order a dress, a petti and a pair of shoes!
They're really cheap and it's my first time ordering online though, so I don't know if the quality is any good. :/
Here are the items:
Dress from 'Cinderella' (that's what was on the watermark as I'm not really sure about an English name)
I ordered it in a size Small (it would be a little long for me but that fit my bust and waist measurements)

Petticoat from Classical Puppets, which I'm sure most Lolis know well, they get pretty good reviews.
I ordered it in white :)

Shoes from Mei Ling Distribution, in a size 39 in white (yea I know I have huge feet ^_^)


I can't wait, I'm so excited! They should be here at the beginning of May (we will be having Easter holidays after Thursday anyways.)


Also, three gifs that I just can't get over: (I know the episode was a few weeks ago but really who cares? I don't watch it every week anyway. I just bothered to for the two celebratory episodes.)
Britt twerking!
I just love it when Brittana dances.
And this. Ahhh. *squealing*

Also: How the hell did Heather get such a good body like a month after giving birth? Does she work out 24/7 or what? I wish I could have a figure like that...

I apologize for this abrupt ending, I must go and fangirl over Brittana now. ;)

A List of Artists + More Random Facts

So, random facts first I guess.
Random fact #3 (I guess I am counting these after all): I don't actually wear Lolita. I have extremely strict parents who would rather die than be seen with me wearing Lolita, and I'm still saving up for even the cheapest petticoat. (I guess the cheapest way would be to get them from Anna House, but they ran out of stock. I'm saving up for Classical Puppets)

Random fact #4: My native language is Cantonese (a dialect of Chinese) but I'm way more fluent in English. It sort of sucks a little when I have trouble understanding native slang, but it's okay most of the time.

Random fact #5: I'm obsessed with Wednesday Addams. Photo below would be a badly taken photograph of me dressed as Wednesday for Christmas :)
(I went caroling with my classmates at an old folks' home and all the elderly were afraid of me


And I'm making a list of artists I like: (that is, musical artists, as in singers and songstresses):
Pop music:

  • Britney Spears
  • Selena Gomez
  • Madonna
  • Michael Jackson
  • Natalia Kills
  • Lady Gaga
  • Katy Perry
  • One Direction
  • Justin Bieber
  • Paramore
Soul/R&B (I'm really unsure about these artists but oh well):
  • Whitney Houston
  • Mariah Carey
  • Rihanna
  • Beyonce
  • Celine Dion
  • Alicia Keys
  • Ariana Grande
Rap/hip hop:
  • Nicki Minaj
  • Eminem
  • B.o.B.
  • Lil' Wayne
Country/Folk:
  • Luke Bryan
  • Taylor Swift
  • Carrie Underwood
  • Suzanne Vega
  • Ed Sheeran
Rock/Alternative/Electronic:
  • My Chemical Romance
  • Linkin Park
  • Fall Out Boy
  • Evanescence
  • The Pretty Reckless
  • Adam Lambert
  • Owl City (Adam Young)
  • Lorde
Indie Pop
  • Ellie Goulding (Dolphin requested for her to have a catergory to herself and who was I to object...)
This list is half completed and I'll probably make part two or something. Leave song/artist recommendations in your comments if I didn't include your favorites :)
Of course, Glee is always the best <3

Greetings~

Hi!
Welcome to my blog, I guess?...

Ahem. Nice to meet you. Allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Christie. (Or Christabel.) I live in Hong Kong. I'm not religious.
I'm in my first year of high school and I'm taking my IGCSE's next year! >_< (err ok random)
In this blog I would mostly include stuff about:

  • knitting
  • Glee (the TV show, yes)
  • music (mostly pop music, but with a little of everything else)
  • Fashion (I'm obsessed with Lolita, but everything else too, again) 
  • my life and random facts
And I will try to make it as interesting as possible. I promise.
Random fact about me #1 (no, I won't actually count these): I speak fluent English and Cantonese. My Mandarin is mediocre. I speak a little French and struggling to learn Japanese.
Random fact #2: Fluffiecorn is my nickname and Rainbow and Dolphin are the nicknames of my two best friends (hence my blog name) I didn't include dolphin because I'm too obsessed with this:
and poor Dolphin slipped my mind :(


As of now my favorite song is Don't Let Go from Lea Michele's new album Louder. Yay for Lea!
