When a Princess goes out she must be prepared for all eventualities, tucked away in a handbag or purse she carries all those little essentials and treasures that she can never be without. I have put together a list of items that a princess might like to carry with her, of course this varies with each of us.

  • A handkerchief, lace or otherwise, embroidered with her initials. For little sneezes and coughs and to offer to a tearful friend or acquaintance.
  • A cardholder, silver or embossed leather perhaps. To hold one’s calling cards and other important pieces of plastic and paper.
  • A small diary or notebook and a pen. For recording her wonderful adventures and whimsical thoughts. Also useful for shopping lists, to do lists and spontaneous poetry.

Fashion

  • Loves loose-fitting one-piece dresses.
  • Wears one-piece dresses and skirts as everyday dresses.

  • Dresses in A-line clothes.
  • Loves one-piece dresses that little girls would like as well.
  • Loves smock-like one-piece dresses and blouses.

  • Buy a lovely floral print notebook or leather-bound journal and keep a Diary. Begin each entry with 'Dear Diary', press flowers between the pages, and draw Lolita fashion designs in it.
  • 2. Get a Lolita pen pal, learn how to write a proper formal letter and send it on pretty scented paper, send gifts and things for each others birthdays. You might want to purchase a quill or dip pen, its fun to write with when you get used to it and has an old fashioned feel.

Autumn is officially here! Where I live, this season brings about a mess of different weathers– some days are warm, some chilly, some are dry, and sometimes it rains for days on end. So here are activities saplings can do for each kind of weather the fall offers. Now I know some of these activities are what mori girls do naturally, especially in the fall, but hopefully it will inspire you! Maybe you’ll even get an idea or two ;)

Sunny/Warm Days

  • ❧ collect fallen leaves; dry press them for collection or decoration
  • ❧ collect acorns, pinecones, and other fallen nature
  • ❧ take a local field guide, go for a walk, and try your hand at identifying mushrooms, plants, and trees
  • ❧ outdoor photography

"Please keep two things in mind: some of these ideas may overlap with the original 101 ideas list because I did not cross-check every single thing, and this list is purely for fun and should not be taken in any way as a directive of how lolitas should behave or do on their free time." (from: http://itsvanillabear.blogspot.com/2017/...)

  • Start a lolita blog or Youtube channel. You don't have to be an experienced veteran chalk full of tutorials and sage advice - just write about your experiences and outfits.
  • Keep a physical journal of diary. Writing your thoughts, feelings, problems, and daily activities will give you an outlet and will provide you with a time capsule of memories.
  • Learn calligraphy - or maybe start out with refining your cursive.
  • Learn to embroider, whether just to pass ...

  • Rose. Roses are one of the most common symbols in fairy tales, especially those featuring Princesses. In Beauty and the Beast it is a rose that Beauty’s father steals which seals her fate. Sleeping beauty is often known as Briar Rose and in some versions it is thorny roses which grow all over the sleeping castle. Roses are very ancient feminine symbols, once associated with Venus/Aphrodite the Goddess of love and beauty and The Virgin Mary, they are still popular symbols of love today and often considered the queen of flowers.
  • Mirror. Mirrors often have magical qualities in fairy tales. The most well known is surely the one belonging to the Queen in Snow White, which shows the truth when asked a question. There is a whole room lined with mirrors in Beauty and the Beast (possibly reminiscent of the Hall of Mir...

Becoming more confident is a long journey full of hard work. I’ve always had very low confidence but in the last few years I managed to become more confident than I ever imagined I’d be. Here are the things that helped me with my confidence the most:

  • Wake up with music that makes you feel good - Create a playlist of songs that make you feel alive and powerful and then listen to it every morning.
  • Stop being mean to yourself - So many of us call ourselves a disappointment on daily basis without realizing it. I want you to imagine you are talking to a friend, not yourself. You wouldn’t call your friend useless every time they mess up, would you?
  • Wear clothes you are comfortable in - I’m not necessarily talking physical comfort. You should feel beautiful in your clo...
