MCM Expo!


I'm finally able to write this post! I was so tired today that I nearly fell asleep at work... The warm weather didn't really help things so I was basically a drowsy zombie for the whole day.

Speaking of zombies... I got to meet some! Not real ones obviously (I wouldn't have written "meet" if they were real... More like running the crap away from them). Basically I went to MCM Expo with my boyfriend this year and in the queue I saw these zombies just walking past and staring blankly at everyone. It was so creepy because their makeup was amazing and they were just really good at acting as zombies.

Here's me with the zombies:


Yes, I was a maid this year! I wasn't actually going to cosplay/dress up until someone said that I seemed to be the maid type, and I'm so happy that I did because I really enjoyed being a maid aha. I got asked for a few photos which never happened to me before so yeah I was pretty happy.

Just duck and carry on


The past year has taught me that no matter what sh*t life throws at you, just duck and then carry on.

I've been through a pretty rough time and I'm still recovering, but everyday I feel a little bit better. I've learnt that I've got to live each day to the max - with the occasional lazy day - and spend as much time as I can with the ones I love. Who knows what might happen tomorrow.

I guess that's why I've been working my ass off this past year to get those grades that I want, because I really want to be successful career-wise. Whenever I wasn't doing any uni work I was chatting to my friends online or visiting my family and spending time with my boyfriend, and recently I have been able to meet my friends like Charli (the loveliest girly in the world <3) more often so life is definitely getting better! Hopefully I can meet up more people over the summer now that uni is nearly over.

So what is the meaning of this post? I don't know, I just wanted to ramble like a wise woman ahahaha. But I guess this is a message to all of my readers that never walk away from the people you love, and if you have a goal then work your ass off and get there! And if you're going through a rough time; life will get better

That aside, here are some pictures of my recent look. I haven't dolled up recently because I still have problems with my eye - I really need to get it checked out - so it was a nice breather! 


I realised that after I had done my makeup I was running out of time because I wanted to watch Criminal Minds *cough* so had to stick with straight hair!

"That's why her hair is so big, it's full of secrets"


What?! Two blogs in one day?! What's going on here?!
Well seeing as my last blog post was completely different to what I normally post I felt bad and decided to create another one because that's how much I love you all <3

Lately I've been looking at trying out different hairstyles rather than the straight hair I normally go for, because to be honest I've been getting really bored of it. I don't know, I just don't feel glamourous enough if I just straighten it (unless I'm going for the oraora look) so I've been keeping my eyes open for hair inspiration and hair tutorials. My main focus was on Ageha mag scans because damn those hairstyles <3 I can't even-

Here are some of the ones I would love to try out, and I'm planning on buying hair rollers soon to stop me from buying more clothes (haha).


I'm really into half up-dos at the moment, and I would love to do a really curly hairstyle that's half up with some sujimori! I tried doing a sort of sujimori in my post when I met Charli in London, but I want to keep on experimenting!
I know there are some that are technically not a half up-do, but I do like the whole hair-to-the-side kinda' thing too.

Starry Eyed


I did it again... Pressed "Publish" instead of "Save". I'm such a douche!

Woo I'm feeling inspired again!
I think that it's all thanks to the weather; it's getting warmer and there are some rays of sunshine... Could spring finally be here? (About time)
That aside, this week I've been doing a mixture of relaxing and uni work and, well, I'm feeling really good! I didn't really have many good nights sleep but I had a long lie in yesterday and I feel so much better! I guess it's a good thing to have lazy days every once in a while.
My uni work is coming along really well and because of that I feel better when I doll up because I know that it isn't "wasting valuable design time". Oui, I do graphic design, and it's really hard to step away from the computer and not do any design.

I dolled up today because I had to get up early anyways so I had plenty of time to myself and come on, who would want to do uni work from half 7 in the morning? (I actually did that a couple of weeks ago... Was a killer). I originally wanted to wear my new MA*RS dress that Charli bought for me but alas, it's too cold for it ;_; I can't wait until summer when I could actually wear my pretty dresses!

Enough talking from me, have some pictures!

I lost my black necklace that I wanted to wear ;_;
