I'm very frustrated that i'm not getting to update as much as I'd like to, RL stuff just needs to disappear for a while seriously ahgdjsfhkd. I work near enough 40 hours a week and spend a good part of my mornings and evenings traveling to work. Most weekends I tend to just pass out if I don't have plans and I have little time for much else. I wish i had the energy to put more time into my hobbies.
Not that you guys want to hear my whining about working too much haha ~
Anyway I met up with my group of friends on Saturday that i refer to as my 'J-Fashion friends' since we were united by a facebook group through mutuals, who started arranging meets for people based around Birmingham that are interested in Japanese fashion & culture. I always have a great time with them and there's always new people attending so it's a great opportunity to make friends!
We met at the train station and walked to The Pavillions where there was this little tea place called Char Wallah. They have every kind of tea you could ever dream of and a lot of them have cute and quirky names such as "Angel's Kiss" & "Sencha Sakura Cherry". After much consideration (seriously, it was impossible) I went with the Magic Moon tea which is a blend of black and green tea infused with papaya and rose hip. When they bring your tea to you they also give you a little timer so you can time the brewing and get the best flavour out of the tea
It was a lovely atmosphere as well as being with great people!
It was very cold and rainy but we still managed to get a photo outside ~ minus one person who had to go home and sleep. Everyone looks so cute
We then headed to the Museum to browse and find cake
There was lots of interesting exhibits but i unfortunately didn't take any photos of them... d'oh
We also spent a long time giggling at the random objects/kid's toys that had found themselves onto displays such as the thomas the tank engine inside random artifacts and a bottle of olive oil amongst some sculptures. I'm not even sure why they were there.

We then decided to take outfit shots near the exit of the Museum, much to the confusion of passersby! This was my outfit ~
Hair Bow: Forever 21
Shoes: Hidden Fashion
I must also take this opportunity to show you guys my adorable Kitten Print Backpack from my sponsors over a Oasap.com! You can get it here. I noticed they also have an 80% sale off going on atm so it's worth checking them out if you haven't already!
