My Blogging Highlights


Can you believe that this time six years ago I was a budding blogger who couldn't wait to get their thoughts down on paper? I've come a long way since then and even though I cringe slightly when I looked back at old posts, I haven't the heart to delete them as they're a reminder of why I started. Sure my photos were badly taken on an even worse camera phone, but who cares?

I was starting to get really emotional about this blog; despite my ups and downs I am really, really happy that I decided to blog. If it wasn't for blogging I wouldn't have met so many amazing people and wouldn't have a clue about SEO (I still don't really have a clue about it) and it's just such a good way to get all of my chaotic thoughts out of my head. I feel so much lighter if I write everything down!

So I decided to compile all of my blogging highlights, whether it's to do with my blog or what my blog lead me to do if that makes sense (it probably doesn't). I've done my best to do this in time order, but some things might've gotten messed up!

Easy Gyaru Hair & Makeup Tutorials Part Two

easy gyaru makeup tutorial, gyaru, gyaru blog

Despite everything, I still hold onto the hope that maybe, just maybe, my skin would magically recover and I can be that dream everyday gyaru that I wanted to be. It's a really fragile hope, but the other day I was going back through my archives and rediscovered my post on Easy Gyaru Makeup & Hair Tutorials. Lots of links were missing so I had to update it, and this made me think - why not create another post? A part 2?

And that's exactly what I am doing! So below you'll find some more of my long-forgotten collection, and hopefully this will give you ideas on easy makeup and hair tutorials suitable for the every day life.

A Day in the Life of a Gyaru

gyaru, gaijin gyaru

I might have said this a million times on my blog already, but gyaru makes up a huge part of my life. I don't do the makeup everyday (because of allergies and eczema etc) and so I treasure gyaru meets. I realise that some of you are quite new to this blog and probably don't know what I'm on about ("what the hell is gyaru, Lizzie?") so in this post I'm going to show you what a day in the life of a gyaru is from the last meet I went to.
