Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Hey all! 
How was your Christmas holidays? Did you eat lots of food? I did! I swear I've never eaten so much food in my life, and that's pretty hard to beat as I tend to eat a lot everyday... But wow I'm still stuffed from my delicious Christmas dinner that my mum cooked up (we have roast duck and pancakes for Christmas instead of turkey).

My Christmas holiday was quite a long one but it was just so good! I wanted to write a post including everything I did around Christmas, so please excuse the abundance of photos and writing~ But there's no point splitting this up into lots of mini posts because it'll be 2014 before we know it.

The first Christmas event was the day I went to see Charli! I missed her terribly, as I hadn't seen her that much at the October MCM Expo so it was lovely to spend a couple of hours trotting around London with her.
We decided to take some purikura as it had been a really long time! I think that it is a tad expensive, but as we were splitting it in half it wasn't so bad. Although their scanner broke so I've only got photos of the purikura half I had </3

The whole set~

Then we headed to our favourite restaurant, Suki! The food is so good for the price we pay, so I was really happy to be finally sitting down munching on gorgeous ramen. If anyone's heading to London one day, you should definitely try this place out! It's a Japanese restaurant and it's amazing!

Merry Christmas!

Just a quickie to say Merry Christmas! I hope everyone is having the most wonderful time of the year (see what I did there ;D)

I just want to thank everyone for reading this blog. I know I have said this millions of times but it really, really does mean a lot to me. I've met so many amazing people through this blog, and I never thought I'd still be blogging all those years later. Words cannot express how much I appreciate every little pageview, comment, message, ask, tweets... All of these things really make my day. I wish I could buy something for you all to say thank you properly but I'm not a billionaire (yet).

I'll probably write up a proper post of my Christmas on Sunday but for now, have a picture of me and the wonderful Charli!

Speak to you soon ~ Make sure you eat lots of cakes and food! It's allowed ;D

Lèvres Rouges

Wow I'm such an idiot! Something went wrong with blogger and it deleted half of my original blog post! I'm going to try my best to remember what I had written, but I might as well just start over because I was hoping to change that post anyway...

First thing's first, have you guys seen The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug yet? Oh my gosh I absolutely loved it! Majestic Thorin was majestic as ever, and boy... Thranduil really does have that aura of sassiness doesn't he?
It's not great in terms of sticking to the book but it was a pretty good film! To those who haven't watched it already you should totally go and see it :D

Aherm, anyway, so I'm really getting into that Xmas mood and the other day I went out for a meal with my work colleagues! I was initially going to go all natural by slapping on some foundation, mascara and red lippy and...

Well, that didn't quite happen.

Instead I just went all out and dramatic! I was a bit worried because I've never really done gal makeup before at work so I didn't want them to think it was too heavy for a meal. Like I heard from a movie: better being too fabulous than too slobby!

It's A Love/Hate Relationship

Okay I don't know how many times I've written this post but boy this must be what, the fifth or sixth time where I just deleted everything and wrote again? I don't know. Oh well, hopefully this will be the last time I write this blog post (or I swear I'm just gonna' give up and have nothing but pictures on it, haha).

Gal, to me, is a bit of a love/hate relationship; yes I've finally managed to find a glue that's suitable for my eye but I do go OCD and make sure I wash my brushes etc every time before I use them. This is kind of a pain in the butt so I tend only to do gal make once a week because I just don't have the time for it… And mainly because when I doll up I end up taking pictures instead of doing what I should be doing i.e. driving to uni. Whoops.

So I might be posting some coords etc on here but skip the gal make and hair. Right now I just want to focus on my coords before moving onto anything else. I put hair last because I really, really suck at doing hair. If only I had a personal hair stylist or someone to help me out with this!

I’m going to make Sunday my gal day so that I can feel “normal”. It's basically what I did before I started doing it everyday and then f*cking up my eye and making my skin go all sensitive. Until then I'll be doing natural makeup everyday. It's not gal but I'm happy, and that's the most important thing, right?

Enough of the chit chat and onto the photos! Doing agejo again because damn I love that style so much ❤

All Loved Up

I had such a good start to this month! I was very selfish and had my boyfriend all to my self. It’s been ages since I last saw him – over a month! – so I always try to spend as much time with him as possible whenever I see him. 

He arrived at mine on Friday and we treated ourselves by going to a new Chinese restaurant, and when I say ‘new’ it just means that it wasn’t Wagamama. We go there way too much so needed something refreshing! Chinese restaurants are also nice anyway. I wanted to be all dolled up and pretty so I wore my lashes! I was a bit sceptical at first because even though they’ve been okay so far I was just worried about being let down and getting a busted eye again. I even curled my hair, which I haven’t done in what seems like ages. 

We ordered this set meal kind of deal where you just get loads and loads of little dishes served in three sections, and boy was there a lot of food! Here are some photos I took really quickly (as we were starving) so please excuse me if they’re blurry.

Bargain Queen

Oh look at me being a wild child posting on a day other than Sunday!

Okay there is a valid reason for this, and it's that I have a fair amount of posts lined up and I know that if I just keep on posting on Sundays like usual I'll end up posting something that happened months ago which kind of kills the whole point of this blog serving as a diary (of some sort). Plus I'll just end up getting annoyed with myself and delete the ready-made posts because of that reason.

Anyway, before I start rambling let's get onto the topic of this post! I've noticed that there's a lot of negativity going around with all of the stress circulating uni, money and… Christmas! Yes it's the so-called "time to be jolly" but at this rate it really isn't. I swear I'm going to go bankrupt with all of this Christmas shopping and I know that I'm not the only one.

However there is an alternative (especially if you're buying some stuff for a gal friend), and that is bargain hunting! It might sound a bit tacky but go and look at places like Gyaru Sales because getting things second-hand isn't always a bad idea. In fact, most of my gal wardrobe is second-hand! Saves you a lot of money too. 

Speaking of second-hand items, Amelie from Spicy Days have opened up a store called Triangle Future where she sells second-hand items for a really good price. I managed to get four items from her all under £30! Bargain or what? She was also sweet enough to actually message me about the fact that she was selling MA*RS and reserved them for me <3 Plus everything arrived in like, two or three days?! Amazing!

Here are the things I got from her… All MA*RS, of course. 

MA*RS 'bow', garters, skirt and shorts!

30 Things Every Agejo Gyaru Should Have

30 things every agejo should have

I was going to do 50 but I thought that was a bit too ambitious…

Hey everyone! So today's post is a bit random because a) I haven't got anything exciting going on in my life and b) I had wanted to do something similar for ages. I took inspiration from F Yeah Lolita's "30 Things Every Lolita Should Have" and from Mana Starre's Himegyaru list, but sadly that Himegyaru list has disappeared! ;_;

I was originally going to do "30 Things Every Gyaru Should Have" but that would've been too broad, and since I'm really interested in Agejo I thought I might whittle it down to that substyle! I am by no means an expert and there could be many things more than what's on the list. These are just what I think every agejo gyaru should have. 

So here goes! Feel free to comment if you have any more things to add
