The title of this blog post already tells you a lot what this post is about. The pictures probably even more so. Let's first explain the word "itadakimasu " to you. First of all it's Japanese. The word literally means "I humbly receive."  It's the same like saying in french : "Bon Appetit"  They say it to express there gratitude for all who played a roll in preparing, cultivating, ranching or hunting the food. 

After explaining the word I'll now present you the food. I think everyone is familiar with it. I was very excited since I was going to learn how to make sushi. It took longer then expected though and when we finally fished it, It was about 10 p.m. I wasn't that hungry anymore, but it still tasted delicious. It was also the first time we drank sake. For those who don't know what sake is: sake is an alcoholic drink made of rice. Officially wine made of rice is called: seishu
Also it's considered rude to pour a drink for oneself. You pour the drink for your partner as a gesture of hospitality. Your drinking partner pours your drink. 
Now that we properly know all this we can start eating and we'll do that with chopsticks, in Japanese they are called: hashi. There are a lot of rules about chopsticks as well. I'll will make a post about them if you want to. There are also ways to make your own chopstick rest. I'll perhaps make a tutorial for that as well. It wonderful if you go out eating and know how to make one. 

After all this: Gochisōsama-deshita

Have a wonderful weekend: Loves London

New Experiment

Hello Maddest people! My (Paris) exams are over and philosophy went well, so I'm very happy at the moment! I experimented with paper and shapes. These are the results of what I did. What do you think?
The Diana is a new camera that I own. The lipstick and nailpolish was a present for my sister London. The color of the lipstick and the nailpolish are exactly the same. Very nice to combine them together. The mug is a present from two friend, Laurein (From the blog: ) and Arjan. Two wonderful and creative lady's! Thank you!
We wish you a lovely weekend!

When the weather's fine

Mungo Jerry -

When the wind is here, yeah it's party time. Bring your bottle waggin' back 'cause it will soon be summer time and we'll signal a cab. We'll go driving or maybe we'll settle down. If she's rich, if she's nice, bring your friends and we'll all go into town. 

This song makes me so happy when I hear it. It it perfect for 'summertime'. You can feel the sun, though I'm sitting inside, studying philosophy. But hey, that's not bad is it? We're always happy long's we're living in this sound philosophy.
The best part is that my Polaroid is working! I'm so happy and the results are so nice!

I crash in the mist tonight

~  -  Kuroshitsuji Musical 2
"Omae Akuma Ya! - You're a real devil!" 

"The mist wont clear away this night"
Hello, the mad twins are back for a moment to take time for a new post. We try to keep up during our exams, but its very hard. Luckily we took some pictures before the exams, so we can post them now.
The only thing we want to do right now is jump in a pool. Really! It so warm here. Studing in the sun, No Way! We don't manage to stay outside for five minutes. So, inside it is, unfortunately!
This lovely dress is from ! Don't you think that the dress is so romantic! I love to wear it all day! It feels comfortable for a long dress as well and fabric is so soft. We tried to take these pictures with the little lanterns I bought, but it was actually still to light to see them, but I still think the pictures turned out fine. I hope you enjoy them!

First real Lolita Dress

~  - Wakaba
London "Simply liking you wont satisfy me, simply admiring you wont satiate me. Onces the morning light pours in, I, with courage, will say "I like you" 

My favorite Japanese song all times! It just cheers me up!

Hello Mina-san! How has your holiday been? Isn't it typical that we have to study while the weather is good. Well Paris has her first exam today, so we wish her good luck and I (London) have my first exam tomorrow. I'm already super nervous! I hope it turns out well.

Well about this dress, I thought about it a long time, but it was so lovely that I just had to buy it. The colors are a little different from the picture on the site though, but it's still amazingly pretty. The details are also very nice. I must say I'm very happy with my first Lolita dress from . On the site they also sell Special Occasion Dresses, costumes and more. I certainly love watching all the beautiful dresses.
I thought the bag was perfect with this dress since the color matched with the dress and the glasses from were so cutely large, that I just had to wear them.

Birthday Day

Oh this is the night, it's a beautiful night and we call it bella notte. Look at the skies, they have stars in their eyes on this lovely bella notte. Side by side with your loved one, you'll find enchantment here. The night will weave it's magic spell, when the one you love is near! Oh this is the night, and the heavens are right! On this lovely bella notte!
Yesterday was our birthday! We got a special breakfast in the morning as you can see on the picture. We turned twenty. It was very odd to study on that day. It was like a non-birthday day until three o'clock. Me and my sister took a break and we left the house to drink some coffee in Cafe Latte. It was delicious! I, Paris, also bought a present for my sister. The present was a lipstick from Dior with matching nailplolish. I bet she will show you later. She is totally into playing card at the moment! It is amazing to see how she is totally into the game when she plays. Kristof, my boyfriend, is the craziest person I ever met! I will show you later what he did, but he gives me a great time full adventure. I hope you had a lovely day and we wish you the best!
