Macarons and Parades

Hello everyone!
Today, I am sick :( I was getting ready for work last night, and within 3 seconds was seriously ill >_< Apparently its a virus thats been going around! So today was my day off- and I had planned to go shopping, but now I'm stuck in bed!!

My last post was of our gal shopping trip, and I never got to post a coordinate, so here it is:

It was so warm outside, but I couldn't NOT wear my cowboy boots! lol!
The skirt is from DreamV, its so comfortable and ruffly! (with built in shorts!)

Well, last Wednesday was Australia Day, so it was a national holiday! We had been asked by AJA (Australia Japan Association) to be in the Australia Day parade, so we had a relaxing day before getting ready for the parade!
We went to the new macaron shop- The Mac Factory!

Kelly and I in our salopettes :3 

 I didn't feel like having heavy makeup on, so just some simple false lashes! (lol, I'm all like "YAY!")

The people who own The Mac Factory are SO NICE! They offered us glasses of water and chatted to us the whole time. Plus, the macarons were AWESOME. I got (from left to right clockwise): jaffa, strawberries and cream, raspberry, nutella, and freckle! It makes my mouth water just looking at them! <3

Then we had to get ready for the parade!
I pretty much had the same makeup I'd put on that morning ><; SO LAZY! But I put my hair up- because it was still really hot outside and yukatas (despite being for summer) are rather warm!!

Bonnie, Me, Susannah and Kelly at the parade! <3 MAH LOVELY GIRLS <3

Obligatory lolita-esque  foot shot! :D

I stuck my flags in my obi to give me wings! :D

a beautiful float in the parade!

at the end of the parade, the other participants passed us, and I was like "OH MY GOD, BRAZILIAN DANCERS!!!" and became all creepy in taking photos of them... LOL!

And at the end of the parade, with Yuki!
It was so darn warm ><;

We didn't stay for the fireworks, we were too hungry!! haha! So we raced off to Sushi Train!
It was a really great day! I hope I can have a day off soon (when I'm not bed ridden ><;) where I can hang with everyone again!

Well, today I had planned to go shopping- but that idea went out the door with my immune system. And in feeling sick, I feel awfully sorry for myself, so I decided to scour some online stores! :D
And what do I find: some awesome things on sale on Lis Lisa's site!
I've never purchased any official 'gyaru brand' before- so this is a bit exciting!
So, I feel slightly more satisfied now. My bank account is lighter- which it really shouldn't be, what with trying to save for Japan this year. B-but I NEEDED IT!

I hope to write again soon! :D And I hope I am 100% better by tomorrow!

Catcha sweeties!
