Before 12 O’Clock Harajuku Fashion Party & Pop! Goes The World! KPop Party! VLOG & Haul

On May 3rd I went to another Pop!Goes The World! KPop Party. I was honestly looking forward to it the whole of April , since the last one. This one had a Harajuku Fashion Party called “Before 12 O’clock that was scheduled before the Party. I ended up going to both because I really wanted to know more about Japanese Fashion especially Lolita fashion. I really enjoyed them both! The Kpop party was like the first one- TOTALLY AMAZING. This was the first time I was able to dance in a huge crowd to PSY’s Gentleman… which has grown on me since it first came out ( I wasn’t a fan when I first saw the video but now I love it…) and they still played the most amazing music! I can’t wait till the next one! You can Check out my blogpost for my first Pop!GoesTheWorld! Experience here =)

Here is the video I Made with the footage I got from my iPhone.

This is the Outfit of the day and Face of the day for me that day.

Face of the Day Outfit of the dayI went for a J-Rocker Funk style with mostly forever21 stuff I bought each for under $10.

With my Coach Poppy mini crossover and my Crazy Yellow Reeboks.

For my face of the day I was inspired by the iconic K-POP super thick black eyeliner style with cherry stained lips. =)

I put my hair in curly pigtails to add +5 to cuteness factor as well. ^^~

I have been a very curious outsider to lolita style fashion. I really think its cute and I admire it a lot however I’ve never owned anything lolita before, or dressed lolita before. That is probably because when it comes to time and money my main priority is cosplaying my favourite characters instead of cosplaying lolita style. I usually find that those styles and fashions are hard to find and when I do find them they are very expensive, like dresses from $100 up to like $300 and more! So this was an exciting event for me especially because there were people trading and selling their older dresses at the event.

Everyone was wearing such beautiful and fun Lolita outfits. I don’t think I’ve ever been in a place other than Anime North where there were so many people dressed in Lolita. There were a few tables selling art accessories, bags and more.  There was also some Key Canadian Lolita’s being interviewed about their style, which was really cool and quite a few music and dancing numbers!

I had a lot of fun and I ended up buying quite a few items from the trading tables! These girls were selling their old dresses and stuff for so cheap I couldn’t resist! I was so happy to buy my first Lolita stuff.

Utena Wig

 

 

 

 

I bought a wig for $25 which was good because It was a really nice wig and a great price and it inspired me to do a Utena Cosplay! Hopefully I’ll have that done by AnimeNorth.

 

 

 

 

Lolita style Fashion Skirt

 

 

 

 

I bought this Skirt for $5…. I WAS SO EXCITED EVERYTHING WAS SO CHEAP!!!

 

 

 

 

 

Shawl Lolita Style Fashion

 

 

 

 

I bought this Shawl for $10.

 

 

 

 

 

Lolita style Sailor Dress Fashion

 

And I bought this dress for $10.

The girls who were selling these items I think were making space to buy new stuff so I made a note to myself to always go to trade/sell events so that  can get more amazing stuff for reasonable prices. The next one I think will be at Anime North. So that’s an add to the list of the million things im going to spend money on at Anime North! HAHA.

Winterlicious Family Lunch at Canoe Adventure (Review) & Outfit of the day =)

In Toronto every January there is ‘Winterlicious’ which is a culinary celebration of sorts that happens all around the city. Basically many Fine dining upscale restaurants that are normally too pricy for the average person to eat at have ‘Prix Fixe’ Menus at a discount. Me and my sister decided to treat my parents to a family Luncheon at Oliver & Bonacini’s Canoe. It was a great deal! For $25 a person, we got to have a 3 coarse meal in one of the nicest upscale restaurants in the city.

Before the Restaurant Review I just wanted to share some awesome things as we were making our way downtown.

It was quite cold outside today and since we were taking Transit and walking i decided that I would need to bundle up a bit.

So here is my Outfit Of the Day:

  • Oversized Teal Scarf – Forever 21
  • Royal Blue knit Sweater – Forever21
  • Grey Pinstripe Shorts –  got from HongKong
  • Baby Thermal Leggings(under the Navy ones) – American Apparel (Keeps me very warm! and I got them for $5 Each!!!)
  • Cable Knit Navy Leggings – Forever21
  • Teal 1 Button Blazer (not shown) – Forever 21

I also wore some cute and girly suede boots with a ruffle and bot on the top which weren’t shown in the picture but looked very chic! Unfortunately  I didn’t realise till later that one of the heel pads for the  was worn down which made my feet unstable and made my ankle hurt quite badly. That was a super fail =(

Other than that I’m proud of my winterized outfit. I didn’t feel cold which is GREAT because I usually always feel cold and I loved the blue especially in the wintertime – It really helps pick up my mood. I hate boring dreadful colours in winter so i always try to be extra colourful.

There happened to be this Ad on the train on the way to Union Station.

I noticed the Girl before the text. and the first thing I thought was VULCAN. I guess I truly am a huge nerd to think that a serious advertisement about depression like this is comical.

I ended up taking a picture for instagram stating:

“Your unhappy because its hard life being accepted as a half #vulcan half human. Those feelings are normal.#nerd #startrek”

This was an ad geared towards Spock. He does have a hard time with his feelings. especially because his human side and vulcan sides are constantly battling inside his mind. And what better way to get his attention than to put a pretty vulcan lady there to catch his eye.

While we were waiting at union station to meet up with my sister I ended up buying a Honey Vanilla Tea Latte from Second Cup. I’ve never tried it before, and I was very happy I got it.

It was the best Latte I’ve ever had in my life! I usually get my Lattes with soy and this one definitely tastes amazing with soy =) I am in love!

We Finally got to Canoe!

It’s located in the TD Building on 66 Wellington St. W on the 54th floor. I’ve never really been in such a high sky rise before to be honest. The elevators travel so fast! In 5 seconds my ears popped twice and we went from the lobby to the 42nd floor. It’s such an elegant restaurant but casual enough so that everyone feels laid back and comfortable. I thought the fact that the restaurant  was in a building was kind of awkward but once we got in and I saw the view I understood why.  I’m very happy we chose to go at lunchtime so we could see everything in the beautiful daylight.

Here is what I ended up getting from the wonderful menu:

Sheep's Milk Quark

Sheep’s Milk Quark with Baby Greens, Beet Reduction & Crisps

Maple Braised Willowgrove Pork

Maple Braised Willowgrove Pork with Orcchiette, Crackling, Kale and Oak Gouda

Spiced Chocolate Panna Cotta with Marshmallow & Graham Cracker Crumb

Spiced Chocolate Panna Cotta with Marshmallow & Graham Cracker Crumb

Everything that we all ate was just heavenly! 

My Cheese appetizer was creamy and light and airy. It was not heavy an went well with the different vegetable chips that accommodated it. The beet Reduction was sweet and it was plated beautifully.

My Pork Pasta was portioned out perfectly. Not too much pasta, and a good amount of creamy and tender pork. Everything in this dish complimented each other and was cooked perfectly. I almost never order pasta at restaurants because they tend to overcook the pasta till mushy – I’M VERY PARTICULAR ABOUT MY PASTA! But this definitely was the best pasta I’ve ever eaten.

The Chocolate Dessert was a perfect texture and taste. It wasn’t too sweet and the sauce and marshmallows were on another level!

For $25 before tax for all that, plus the great view from the top floor and the beautiful scenery it was well worth that money. Not to mention very pleasant and efficient service. I would have paid  more than $50 easily for all that. What a bargain! 

It may be too late to make a reservation for whats left of winterlicious this year but i completely recommend that everyone look into it for next year, as well as this years summerlicious! You will not be disappointed!
