One Item Five Ways: Boohoo Tulle Maxi Skirt

one item five ways, tulle, boohoo

I've always been a fan of maxi skirts; when I was younger I used to have this long white one that I would wear whenever possible, but then my taste changed and I haven't looked at a maxi skirt since. That is until I noticed them cropping up in Japanese fashion, and I was so tempted to get one right away but decided to wait patiently for it to appear in Western stores.

A few months down the line they arrived on the scene, and when I saw this white mesh skirt on Boohoo I knew I just had to get it, and BAM it was in my wardrobe. It's amazing how versatile this skirt can be so it wasn't that hard to come up with five different combinations for it, all of varying styles. You got your larme kei and your gyaru kei, both super easy to wear in your everyday life. It provides the perfect amount of layers for those cold days but it's also light enough for Spring. I love it!

To My Favourite Human

valentine's day, cute, love, heart balloon

I didn't think much of you when we first met; you were a pretty ordinary guy with an ordinary life, and I was actually quite sick of boys at that time because they were always the same. No matter how pretty they were they were predictable to the core (from the guys I knew of anyway) and it was a bit boring. I thus decided that I couldn't be bothered to have a guy in my life and would rather just do my own thing and be my own favourite human.

And then you came along and... Well, nothing changed. At first. anyway.

Good as Gold: Lush "Golden Wonder" Gift Box Review

Lush golden wonder gift box, bath bombs

Aah Lush, why can't I get enough of you? In all fairness I had been good and have avoided buying Lush for a few months now, but then I received this beauty "Golden Wonder" as a Christmas present and it makes me want to buy more! Inside were two bath bombs, one called Golden Wonder and the other Star Dust. It made me feel heavenly just looking at the label.

There wasn't really much of a description for the Golden Wonder bath bomb, but the Star Dust is a "soothing vanilla mixed with fragrant rosewood". I had very high expectations for both of them - especially the Golden Wonder - and I accidentally managed to get some gold glitter on my camera, oops.

Gyaru Nail Art Inspiration for Valentine's Day

gyaru nails, valentines day nails, inspiration

Hands up if you have no idea what to wear for Valentine's Day? Yep, me neither, but lately I've gone back to drooling over endless Instagram feeds of Japanese nail salons and it makes me really want to make mine pretty for the special day (even though I have no idea what to wear). Nails made me feel so complete - especially when it came to gyaru - and since I've been so out of touch with it lately I think a set of beautiful, sparkly nails would do the trick! I wish I could just waltz into a salon to get my nails done every week but alas that's not going to happen.

What I can do, however, is create inspirational mood boards of Valentine's Day gyaru nails. I love creating mood boards and it's been a while since I've done one so I was eager to do this again. Hopefully it'll also provide you with that Valentine's inspiration even if you're spending the day at home pampering yourself like the queen you are.
