Disney World trip (part 2/2)

I didn't finish posting the pics from my trip to Disney World in my last post, so here are some from the Epcot park!

I didn't visit any of the other parks cause I was trying to be good & study as well as rest, but on a day that Mark didn't have many sessions to attend, we spent the morning together going on rides and looking out for Disney characters.

Disney World trip (part 1/2)

I realized that I forgot to post any pics from my recent trip to Disney World!

Mark was presenting this year at the IBM Lotusphere conference which is held in Florida & within Disney World, so for once I decided to tag along! He has been there twice before, but even though I wanted to go with him, it always seemed like such a long and expensive trip and also I couldn't take so many days off from studying. But this year I finally decided to just pack my books & laptop and go for it!

Paris trip & Angelic Pretty Tea Party

So, reading other people's entries I realised I totally forgot to make an entry about my Paris trip. I already posted most of the pics on Facebook and my outfits on daily_lolita so this will just be just a quick overview  

I only went for a couple of days really, I didn't have time to attend the Japan Expo unfortunately like most of the other London girls did. Mel was kind enough to pick up a copy of Misako's book for me however and have it signed, yay!

I arrived in Paris Saturday night and roomed in with Chrissi & her awesome bear, Robbeart <3 Kyra, Mel and Aggie were staying in the same hotel, so it was great to be able to head out to the Tea Party together the next morning. The Tea Party was awesome, the French lolis were all fantastic and the staff at AP as well as Maki and Asuka were all very friendly and welcoming. Everyone just looked so pretty, I was mesmerized by all the colourful coords!  
I was a bit worried beforehand that I wasn't gonna be able to understand anything, but everyone was so gracious and making an effort to say everything in English, for which I was very grateful. I have to start learning some basic  French if I am planning to attend next year and make some effort myself I think!!

The drinks and food were spectacular (me and Mel stuck mainly with the drinks as vegans in a room full of cupcakes, cakes, candies and macarons but oh well, can't complain!)
