Lolita New Year's resolutions 2013

New years come with fresh starts and new chances to improve yourself, which is why I have made it a tradition to write a list of things I would like to achieve by the end of the year and stick it up on my door so I can see it every day.

I have some non-Lolita resolutions of course, more than I do Lolita ones, but here are my Lolita New Year's resolutions for 2013:

  • Wear Lolita everyday for a week
  • Grow my Lolita wardrobe
  • Become more active in the Lolita community
It's just three resolutions, but I have a feeling each one is going to be harder than it sounds. Especially the first one! 

What are your Lolita resolutions for the coming year? Do you have any?

Happy New Years!

What I got for Christmas

I received some very beautiful things this Christmas, and I'm extremely thankful for them and everything else I got. :)

I adore everything that was given to me, especially these last two items! 
I'm a bit of a nuts when it comes to boots, I'll wear them with just about anything and I've gotten quite a few so far. I've been wanting this particular pair for awhile now so I was ecstatic when I unwrapped them!
As for the coat, I LOVE it! It's lined, the fur is detachable and it's pretty warm. At least, warm enough for my needs, I live in Texas so it hardly ever gets very cold or snows here. 
I'm all set for winter now! 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas this year, and got some good stuff. ;)

Christmas is beautiful


One of the reasons Christmas is my favorite holiday is one of the same reasons I love Lolita so much: it's absolutely beautiful. Decorated Christmas trees, twinkling lights, beautifully wrapped presents, elegant red and gold colors, I could go on forever with the beautiful things Christmas brings. Not to mention the ones you can't see like generosity and kindness! 

Christmas seems to melt frozen hearts in the midst of the winter chill and fill them with the same wonder and joy that a child has this time of year. Maybe I have a romantic view of Christmas, but I do believe in Christmas miracles, a few have even happened to me.

So, what are some beautiful things you love about Christmas? Ever experienced a Christmas miracle?

Merry Christmas everyone!

Nearly a Princess

Welcome to my new blog, "Nearly a Princess"!

I've been away from blogging and Lolita for months now, though it's certainly felt longer! A lot has changed, including myself, and that's one reason why I made a new blog instead of returning to A World in Lace.

I quit blogging to deal with more personal issues like my mother's cancer and I've grown a lot as a person and a bit as a Lolita since I've been gone. I'm happy to say that I think I'm ready to start blogging again! I probably won't get to post as often as I'd like, my life is still very hectic, but I'm glad to be back!

So, why have I decided to name my new blog "Nearly a Princess"? Personally, I believe that all girls/women have the potential to be a "Princess" and I believe that being a Princess is far more in your actions and how you treat other people than it will ever be in what you have or how you dress. Being a Princess means having respect for both yourself and other people, and to me becoming a Princess means becoming who I want to be inside.
But I'm not there yet, not quite the Princess I want to be. That's why this blog is called "Nearly a Princess", to remind myself of how much I've grown and how far I still have to go.

This blog will be both about being a Princess and about Lolita Fashion and I will try to post often and keep everyone updated. I hope you all enjoy this blog! ♥
