♥ I can't view my followers ;__; ♥


Hey pretties! How're you all today? 

As the title says, my web browser isn't loading up my followers tab so I can't see you beautiful people that followed me ;_____; So sorry if I don't follow back, I'll try to do so as soon as possible! n_n~

Today I went to a friend of mine's birthday party, and decided to try on my new Diamond Lashes! I received them on Wednesday and ever since had been itching to try them out~ I made a review about them in my previous post ^^ I know that I said I'll take a break, but I really will as I still need to do some more research on Gyaru ^^

Also, all of my future gyaru posts will be under the Weekly Gyaru theme 'cause I dress as a Gyaru weekly and I don't always have the referenced tutorials on me~ n_n So they are themes but not that obvious ;D

My post will be short and sweet today (because I can't think of what to write lolol)

♥ Diamond Lash Review ~ Ichibankao ♥

Please note that this isn't a sponsored review! I bought these lashes for myself from ichibankao.com n_n~

Hey beautiful people! How're you all? 
My lashes from ichibankao arrived on Wednesday! I was so happy to finally receive my first pair of 'real' Gyaru lashes, and literally squealed with joy when my boyf handed them over to me <3

So I ordered the Diamond Lash Glamourous Lashes and the Feminine Lash, because I really wanted to see if they would help me with my Gyaru look.

Aanyways, this is what the packaging looked like~




They also included a cute lil' business card as well n_n I was surprised how small the package actually was o_O They really didn't waste anything~ (My Product Design self kicking in here lolol)

A lil' announcement~

Hey guys!
I have a lil' announcement to make... 

I haven't made a leap in improving recently, and because of this I'm not satsfied with how I look. I use very similar eye makeup techniques that I'm getting a little bit bored of it.

So I'm going to take a little time off dolling up to spend some time researching on other dramatic eye makeup, just so that I could make a big step in improving as a Gyaru. Do you know of any eye tutorials that are slightly dramatic? I'd love it if you could help me out >//< I want to pick themes back up again but this time not just focusing on one aspect but hair, clothes and makeup ^^ Right now I'm searching for different coord ideas as I'm not very good at them, and also gathering pictures of my clothes to form a little collage of ideas.

During the meantime I'm also going to be improving the way I blog as well to make my posts more enjoyable to read ^^~ And I might als change my layout and shizzle as I've got a bit of time on my hands now ^^

Righties, onto the piccies of today~

Where's the sun gone?~


I've decided to doll up today instead of tomorrow 'cause I was bursting to wear a dress but it seems that tomorrow might be a little too cold ;_______; Aah wells, I could always doll up tomorrow as well I guess tehe~
I wanted to try out the Hime Gyaru style, but then decided to go with the sweet & dark style and asked the lovely Amelie to help me out with what to wear and shizzle~ She also helped me on how to do big hair so I hope that I haven't let her down ^^


I also gained an award! I was just so surprised and happy to see on Wen's blog post that I received an award >///< She's so kind! <3
Anyways, here are the rules~

1. Link back to the person who passed you the award
2. Share 7 random things about yourself
3. Award 15 blogs
4. Drop them a note and tell them about it



* Before I started liking the Gyaru fashion I never really took any notice of how I looked; I was lazy, just threw on anything, and I really couldn't be bothered with styling my hair. But now I do! And I feel so much prettier ^^
* I have the most wonderful boyfriend ever <3 I'm so happy to be with him >////<
* I am really crap at dancing although I'd love to be able to! I envy those people who could salsa etc ;___:  
* I try my hardest to be a good person, and love making friends ^^ 
* I hate being so skinny and want to put on weight 
* I really wish that I had a talent; I'm good at many things, but not brilliant >_<"
* I try to work hard but get distracted very easily ;_____; 


Like Wen-chan, I'll only award 5 blogs tehe~


Onto some piccies! ^^

A boring weekend


Hey guys! How're you all? ^^

It's the last weekend before my French exam - which I'm SO not prepared for D: - so I wasn't allowed to go out... But this didn't stop me from dolling up tehe~

Was inspired by Okarie's makeup and hair ^^


And this is me! ^^

I quite liked this look but not so much the hair... Idk why but I just think that it doesn't suit me D: The makeup I think isn't dramatic enough and even though I really like the sweet/natural style I really like the dramatic look.
Aah wells, at least I've tried something new ^^ Does anyone know of any dramatic eye makeup tutorials?

Inspirational Gyaru~ Nonoka Iwata!

Sorry that I've been neglecting this topic for a while... I completely forgot about doing it this week ;_______; Decided to do a post today instead of Sunday tehe~

This week's inspirational Gyaru is... Nonoka Iwata! ^^

Factfile
Name: Nonoka Iwata
Age: 18
Occupation: Model, although we don't see her much in magazines ;____; I think I've seen her once or twice in EGG, but most of the time she's on tumblr ^^
Why I love her: Her eye makeup is absolutely amazing. She has some really dramatic ones that makes her eyes look huge! I also like the fact that she has her own signature style which is mixing gothic clothing with Gyaru <3 Even though I probably wouldn't wear similar clothes I still admire her for that <3
Any tutorials inspired or done by Nonoka Iwata?:

And now for some piccies :D

Yay it's May! ^^~

Hey guys! How're you all today? ^^

For this week I decided to wear my new "ripped" leggings! I really wanted to buy a pair of jeans and rip them, but buying ripped leggings was just so much cheaper as there's no such thing as cheap jeans (I don't think?)

Righties, well here's my outfit! ^^
Outfit rundown:
Hoodie: Online
Vest: Next
Legging: Reveal
Shoes: Brantano?

I'm trying my best to take into account all those things that people said I needed to improve in one of my previous posts ^^ I hope that I've improved as a Gyaru! ^^ Also I'd like to thank all of those lovely people who commented on my circle lens post and gave me advice on that ^^
I made it so that my contouring shadows were darker so that they could be seen easily by my camera~ Did it work? ^^ I also tried out a new style of doing my eyes; the droopy style that is often adopted by Okarie ^^ I was about to do her pigtailed hairstyle as well but it didn't really go with the sweet rokku theme D:



Sorry if the picture is a bit blurry, but that is what my eye makeup looked like ^^
My hand shook a lot when I was doing the bottom line so sorry if it's a bit wobbly ;_______; I'll try better next time ^^ I wore dark&light lbrown eyeshadow as well as black ^^ I should've taken another picture D:

Onto the pictures! ^^
