British Osaka

When I miss British culture (?!) I go to Kitahama Retro! It’s a pretty accurate British tea room, there are pictures of the Oldest Sweet shop in England in Yorkshire I’ve been to, and some signs for places we know.

With an English Post box, crest and Union Jack!

The advantages are of course that it has Japanese service! Unlike Betty’s you don’t have to wait an age to get your bill. The food is delicious, and they have a small seasonal range too.

It’s pretty popular with groups of ladies and lolitas!

I decided to try their summer iced pineapple tea. It was so delicious and refreshing. (Cake set ¥1100).

J got afternoon tea (¥2100).

I couldn’t resist a slice of Indian Chai cheesecake. Nom.

Of course I could always visit Hub the British pub for a pint if I miss home and eat some fish & chips, but it isn’t quite as authentic as I’d like.


Recent loli adventures

On 26th March I went to the Manchester Japanese Fashion meet.
Jsk – Innocent World
Bolero & headbow- Baby, the stars shine bright
Shoes & tights – off brand
Bag – vintage

I wore my new Innocent World dress and it was lovely to meet some people who are into other Japanese street styles like fairy kei and decora.

Last weekend we went to London, we had a lovely time meeting up with friends and having dinner.
At Chin Chin Labs having nitro peanut butter ice cream *yum*

Jsk – Metamorphose Apple dress
Cardigan – BTSSB

Purikura <;;;3

Then today J and I went to Coppers Tea Room an old Police station that has been converted into a cafe.

The basement still had old cells you could go in!

Hope now the weather is getting nicer I can have more loli adventures.

Blouse – off brand
Cardigan – Baby the stars shine bright school cardigan
Skirt – APs Sugary Carnival
Tights – Vivienne Westwood
Plastic headbow – BTSSB
Shoes – AP Teaparty shoes


Farrington Lodge

Yesterday J and I ventured out for afternoon tea.

Outfit pic before we left-being upstaged by Pickles the dog.

We had turkey, cheese and salmon sandwiches, miniature scones and a selection of mini cakes. For £10.99 each it was very reasonable but I would have preferred a selection of loose teas and clotted cream for the scones not whipped cream.

My chair was really low down! Made me feel a little like Alice in Wonderland :)
