Get that Look: Mode

So for this week I decided to do a more mode-inspired coord, because I've been getting into Mode lately. It looks so classy, and great for a casual day! ^^



And now onto the similar clothes!
You could find these in any Western stores, but the shops I'm using from are from the UK (although I do think that they sell worldwide~ I know that New Look definitely does ^^)

Seen a look that you're interested in? Want it to be featured on "Get The Look"?

Autumn's itching closer


I've been feeling really depressed and uninspired lately, and it doesn't really help that it's so stressful living away from home. I have to buy my own food, cut down on spending (even if I do need it) and travel goodness knows how many times, back and forth between the town that I'm staying in and the place I need to go to.

Fortunately I'm settling in well with my landlady; she's so nice to me, and helps me out a lot and also teaches me how to do things like use the library, use the washing machine... She even walks me to town to show me the way ^^

I've made a couple of friends too, but I still feel kinda lonely... I need to arrange more meet ups with friends, but then that means money and it's not like I've got a job or anything... Sigh. I miss everyone back home so much, especially my boyfriend <3

So yeah, this is basically going to be a really depressing blog post :/ Sorry guys ;_;

Gyaru Valentines

Gyaru Valentines is a new-ish community on livejournal that spreads the love of the Gyaru fashion. Much like the infamous Gyaru Secrets, Gyaru Valentines posts up pictures from anonymous people, but the huge difference is that these are nice secrets.
How did this idea start? Well a couple of weeks back there was a post on Gyaru secrets saying that a "Gyaru Valentines" should be created to spread the love. At first I thought it would be a dating site or something because of the name, but after it was made it kinda proved that I was wrong. So Gyaru Valentines was made, and each week there are more and more posts on it.

So how does it all work? 
On the bottom right hand corner of each post there is a "leave a comment button". When you click on this it'll direct you to a new page. Now you have the option of either posting anonymously, with your lj account, or any other blogging account that you use. Then you just copy and paste the link of your secret in here, press "send", and you're done!

My Goals & Inspirations

So I thought that I'd do a post today of my goals and inspirations... It's coming up to a year since I've heard of the Gyaru fashion, so I kinda need to refresh my mind to see where I have come from so far. That starts with, of course, my Gyaru improvement meme! (Wanna try it out? Click here)


I m p r o v e m e n t  M e m e


As you can see I've definitely made a difference since I've first started, although there are a few lil' things that I need to go over. My main one is my hair; I need to experiment more! Another are my coords - although I've improved a lot over the month - and my accessories. And, of course, circle lenses although mine still haven't arrived yet ;__;

M y  G o a l s 
We'll start off with what my goals were in March when I first started dressing properly as a Gal and tick off the ones I've achieved:

1. To be a good Gyaru 
2. To buy some false eyelashes from Dollywink or a similar Japanese brand ✓ 
3. To buy Liz Lisa & MA*RS clothes 
4. To join a particular Gyaru circle that I have in mind ;D 
5. To be able to dress as a Gyaru more than once a week every week  
6. To build up my Gyaru wardrobe 
7. To try out wearing circle lenses (although Idk if I'll like them lawls) 
8. To get better at applying makeup - especially with contouring 
9. To buy all the makeup I need to have good make 
10. To also buy some straighteners or a bigger iron for my curlers 

Wow, they are pretty much achieved! And what are my goals now?
♡ To be more interactive with other Gaijin Gyarus (especially ones in the UK)
♡ To improve on my hairstyling skills and buy more hair equipment
♡ Keep on improve as a gal
♡ Gain more followers and improve my blogging skills
♡ To gain some sponsors 
♡ To buy hot rollers & a new curling iron 
♡ Attend and organise more meets
♡ Try out more coords 
♡ Wear Circle Lenses

Busy week (Lots of piccies!)


Wow it's been such a busy week getting ready for uni and shizz. There was the rushing around of getting supplies like towels and what not, and I haven't really got my clothes packed yet... Whoops.
I can't believe that I'm actually going to uni!
It's scary because I'll be so far away from home, but I'm pretty excited too. I'll be finally on my own looking after myself (which I'll probably do a really shit job of).

But yeah. This week was a really busy week arranging to meet people, so let's start with last Wednesday~
I went over to Amelie's house for a sleepover! We wanted to have a meet before I moved house  ^^ I got dolled up beforehand (which was utter chaos btw 'cause my mum dragged me to Morrisons an hour before I had to leave) and tried out doing loose curls, than headed off to her house~

OraOra Gal & One Lovely Blog Award

Hey guys! How're you all today?
Sorry that I haven't really been dolling up recently... I generally felt shit lawls :P What happened was that for the past week I've been going to bed late but getting woken up extremely early (like, 8am) because of my sis going to school. Doesn't really help that my immune system is crap as crap can be and on Friday I had to get up extremely early to enroll at uni at 9am (which was, btw, 3 hours from home >_<"). But yeah, I really aught to do more exercises and shizz :/ 
Buuut on Sunday I had an excuse to doll up; I was going out with le boyf on a date in what seems like forever. We went to this a lovely pub (pretty decently priced too! <3) I wanted to go for the Oraora gal look as it had been catching my eye lately ^^

Review - ES A023 lower lashes

I haven't done a review in ages so today I'll be reviewing the ES A023 lashes from KKCenterhk.


I've heard/seen many people buy lashes from kkcenterhk, mainly due to its cheap prices. These were 10 pairs for the price of $7.78 USD and totally reusable! They remind me of the Dollywink lashes~

I received them exactly 7 working days after I ordered them, quick or what?! I mean, normally when I order things online from places like Hong Kong they take aages... So was pretty pleased with these ^^ Not that I wasn't impatient waiting for them to arrive lololol, but I was desperate for some lower lashes.

These are currently gonna' be my everyday lower lashes as they are perfect for the 'natural' look, and far better than my old ones lawls :P As much as I love my Diamond Lash ones I could finally wear a pair without having to use eyeliner to make it look good lolololol. You could also go for a more dramatic look with these lashes by using eyeliner & eyeshadow too~
Please ignore the crappiness of my eyebrows >_<"

General Discussion ~ Comparing yourself to others

I recently came across this site on tumblr called Boss Bitch Tips, and I have to say that it's such a confidence booster. They give you great tips on how to be a strong woman and I've spent nearly an hour on it lololol.
The one that really caught my eye was this one:


For as long as I can remember I've always been comparing myself to others. I felt that everyone I knew was much prettier, smarter, funnier than I am, and I went through some stages of depression and put myself down.   It's hard not to compare yourself to others, I know, but from what I've learnt it's not necessarily a good thing. Sure that girl you know might look prettier, but is her smile as beautiful as yours? Does she seem happier than you do? Everyone compares themselves to others, and hell maybe the person you're comparing yourself to might even think the same of you! ^^

So guys, stop comparing yourselves to others 'cause you're all beautiful! Trust me ^3^ Just listen to Lady Gaga's song "Born this Way" and it'll definitely give you a boost of confidence ^^

Get the Look: Leather & Stars

Okay so I've decided to do a series of posts called "Get the Look", inspired by the idea from Kogal Panel . I thought it was an amazing idea, and was a bit sad that they don't do it anymore ;__;

The look for this week is this:

And now onto the similar clothes!

Outfit Post: Rule Britannia.

So for Wednesday I wanted to go for a more Gyaru rokku look~ I bought a new sweater - which I LOVE - from Primark and worked my coord around that. 
Kudos to Bloomzy & Marie for helping me create this coord~

Primark pink top, Primark UK sweater, Claire's choker, 
BHS necklace, Reveal shorts & belt, leggings from 
a random shop, and Brantano heels.

Before you ask, I was in my sister's room so no I am not crazy about Justin Beiber D:

Eurgh, my lashes haven't arrived yet so I'm still wearing the really shitty ones D:
