Throwback Thursday: 2020 Museum of Ice Cream

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I am starting a new Throwback Thursday series to write about memories from the past. ^-^ Let me know if you have any suggestions!

For this Throwback Thursday, I’m writing about my experience at the Museum of Ice Cream!

My friend Ariel took me to this interactive museum for my birthday. It’s such a cute spot to take lots of photos, and you can also learn about the history of ice cream while you go through the various rooms. Masks were required throughout the whole experience. The only time I took off my mask was when we got some ice cream to sample, and we went outside to eat the ice cream.

My favorite room was the one that looks like a NYC subway car! They also had animations in the windows and screens.

For my outfit, I wore an ice cream themed dress from BTSSB which I thought was very fitting for the Museum of Ice Cream! The whimsical and cute look went well with most of the rooms at this place.

This giant ice cream scoop is too cute!!

I really love this rainbow light-up hallway. It’s so fresh and pretty!

They also had a sports and playground themed room with ice-cream cone basketball, ping pong tables, swings, and more.

The final room was a swimming pool of sprinkles. This was such a cute idea! I highly recommend checking out the Museum of Ice Cream if you love ice cream, or if you want a cute place to take photos. It’s a great spot to check out if you’re visiting NYC!

[LBC] 5 Surprise Finds That You Didn’t Realize You Would Enjoy So Much

This week’s prompt is “5 Surprise Finds That You Didn’t Realize You Would Enjoy So Much!”

I’m sure everyone has encountered surprise finds, whether it was an impulse buy, a gift from a friend, or something you saw and unexpectedly felt a pull toward it, even though you normally wouldn’t gravitate toward something like that.

AATP Starlit Sky Tent and the Secret Circus Troupe JSK I

1) This JSK was truly a surprise for me, because I got it from a lucky pack and had no idea what I was going to get (other than it being from the Alice and the Pirates brand). The name of the JSK is Starlit Sky Tent and the Secret Circus Troupe JSK I, in the blue colorway. I was hoping for something in red or bordeaux, so at first, I was disappointed when I saw the color. But I grew to love it’s unique print and beautiful design, and I’ve worn this dress often!

Red Mary Janes from Wolky

2) These Wolky red Mary Jane shoes were a surprise find in a small locally-owned shoe store near my college campus. They were on clearance sale, so I got a good deal on them, and at first, I wasn’t sure if they’d truly be comfortable since they have heels. But I’ve worn these walking, dancing, etc. and they’re really comfortable and well-made shoes! I love Lolita tea party shoes, but unfortunately, they’re not really made for walking and aren’t comfortable. As someone with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and flat feet, I also need arch supports. And these shoes have built-in arch supports! Even without my custom orthotics, they are comfortable. Sneakers are more comfortable though, but I rarely wear sneakers with Lolita fashion. I’ve worn these Wolky shoes with almost all of my red colorway coords.

Bodyline Black Wristcuffs

3) These black Bodyline wristcuffs were a surprise find, and honestly I wasn’t expecting much… but they’re so cute and I’ve worn them for so many coords! They’re really versatile and work well for both gothic and sweet (bittersweet) coordinates. They’ve also held up well; the elastic hasn’t become over-stretched.

Vintage Gloves (Photo by Ameily)

4) These vintage French crochet gloves were totally a surprise find from a Parisian flea market. They were damaged though and I’m scared to wear them much because they’re quite fragile. But I enjoy them so much, even if it’s just gazing at them. I store them in a clear ziploc bag, and they are stored in a container in a very visible place in my room, so even though I’ve had them for years, I still like to look at them. Occasionally, I’ll wear them out with coords!

F21 Goldtone Ring with Ivory Rose

5) This goldtone ring with an ivory rose was something I found years ago in Forever21. When I first got it, I wasn’t too into it, but as I built my Lolita fashion wardrobe, I found myself wearing it more and more often. It’s very easy to match with various colors, and it fits comfortably on my middle finger. It’s a versatile ring that will look great with non-Lolita coordinates too. And it’s sturdy! Many of my rings have broken if I drop them, or they get scratched and discolored, but this ring still loks practically new.
