What Do I Love And Dislike About Gyaru?

I've been a really naughty blogger; I've been putting off this moment for days, even wished that Sunday would pass and that I would "forget" to blog but... Well, I love blogging too much to do that.

I think I'm going through a bit of a blogging rut because I've found it really hard to find some inspiration in gal lately. Might just be a stage though - I'm hoping that it is - and perhaps a break from it might help!

So, aherm, what to write about this weekend? Well I've been looking at my gal meme that me and Bunny created months back and realised that it might just be a good idea to complete it! After all, I did kind of stop at day 4 (click here to see my posts). You never know, it might restore some inspiration back into gal for me.

What do I love and dislike about Gyaru? 

I love it's beauty; I know that it's a bit silly to say, but Gyaru does make me feel a lot better about my appearance. I mean, I was okay before I go into Gyaru but since then I've gotten a lot more confident in what I wear and what makeup I slap on. I never used to wear tons of makeup because I thought it would look weird on me, but since I became a Gyaru I was able to learn of different makeup and hair styles, and my wardrobe is a lot varied to what it was before. I was a jeans-and-t-shirt girl before, preferring that to wearing bright dresses but now I'm the complete opposite.

Sponsored Review: JOJO Eye Shadow No. J08-01


Please note that although this is a sponsored review, the thoughts and opinions stated are 100% my own.

Sorry for the late post guys! Had such a crazy morning; I woke up with a nice insect bite on my leg, had to doll up, do all of the food shopping, and then do some vacuuming. Such fun things to do on an extremely humid day...

But enough of the complaining, today I shall be reviewing an eyeshadow palette given to me by KKCenterHK. This is a bit overdue as I received the item two weeks ago, but haven't been able to use it until today.

I'll skip the postage and packaging because they are always amazing at it, plus I've reviewed some of their products which you can view here. So let's get onto the actual product, shall we?

The product in question is JOJO Eye Shadow No. J08-01 (bit of a mouthful, isn't it?).




Let's see what each shade looks like on the skin:

Chasing The Sun; UK Gal Meet!


I hosted meet in London last Sunday, and I must say that it was definitely a success! While there weren't as many people there as we would normally have, everyone was so lovely and I had such a relaxing time. I think it was the first time where we weren't rushing to go anywhere, and spent at least a couple of hours just relaxing at a park in the sun.
Sun?! Yes, Britain finally has some sun! I've been feeling quite depressed over the past couple of days - even went so far to think about selling my gal brand items - because of the sh*tty British weather, but today it proved me wrong. We finally reached the highs of 26 degrees celsius which we haven't had in such a long time.

At the meet there was me, Marie, Yamii, and Finlay and three other new people that I haven't met before Amber, Kei Kei and Jade. We first headed out to get some food at this Japanese restaurant called Mr Taro as the purikura machines were closed for lunch. Even though I've been to London a fair amount I'm still a bit of a n00b when it comes to food so it was nice to go somewhere new. Marie's recommendation was perfect; the food was yummy and at a very good price!

I had Chicken Ramen and they used this delicious marinade on it *_*

Then we did the usual purikura because it is thankfully still open. Whether or not it's closing is still up in the air so hopefully it'll stay for a little longer... I don't know what I'll do without it ;_;


This is my favourite one hahaha!
