Reverie

persunmall review, himekaji, gyaru, gaijin gyaru

I am so sorry that I wasn't able to post last week (but would you let me off because I posted it on my FB? Hahaha). I was just so caught up with uni work that I didn't have the time to dress up nice or do anything about blogging so I had to take a break. But now that uni is over I feel a bit... Empty. I have been studying for most of my life and now I feel like I feel lost in reverie.

To celebrate I arranged to go out for a meal and decided to slap on a bit of makeup and slip into a pretty dress that I got a couple of weeks ago. I wanted a day dress to wear as I realised that most of my dresses were too "dressy" for just going out shopping/working/etc, and this one was absolutely perfect! It has a lovely shape to it too... At first I was worried that I bought the wrong size but I'm glad I got this one as the elastic just above the waist really helps give that flare. Did I tell you that I love the cream/pastel palette right now? Even though it's bound to rain anytime soon I still wanted to wear this dress, and my new bag.

Wishlist: Late Spring/Summer Favourites


  
It's that time of the month again where I make a wishlist of the things I want to buy with the money I don't have. Sigh.

I've been really into hime-kaji and "light" gyaru substyles so I went to have a look for some cute clothes that weren't black, and what's cuter than this polka dot crop shirt? I have recently bought some white shorts and this is perfect for it. I could just see myself wearing them together with my hat with wavy hair... Dammit, why isn't it in my wardrobe right now!

Gal Blogging is Dead; Long Live Gal Blogging!

I first got into gal/gyaru through blogging on livejournal before taking blogging seriously and migrating to Blogger. I started off just posting some outfit and makeup shots and people would give me advice on my blog on how I could improve...

Three years later I'm still blogging but there seems to be a huge drop in the gaijin gal blogging "market", as it were. It seems that more and more people prefer posting on other social networks such as Facebook, Instagram and Tumblr, and I can count all of the active bloggers (that I know of) on one hand. There used to be tons of gaijin gal blogs! Reading and commenting on other gal's blogs was the only way I could communicate with them, and it was fun!

It's quite sad to see that gal blogging has been diminishing and it's because I love reading blogs. I feel that there's a lot more to blogs than just flicking through someone's photos on Facebook. Sure, it takes more time to write a post than to upload a few pictures and #hashtag like crazy, but to me it's just nice to read what was on someone's mind or what their day was like.
