My Travel Wishlist

image source: Joe de Sousa
My biggest dream is to travel the world. I might not be able to get to every country out there but I want to travel as much as I can, when I can! I actually put this down as one of my resolutions for this year but I think I might just extend that to my whole lifetime.

I used to go travelling a lot as a child but when I started uni (and then working), my holidays have declined. I'd rather work more and earn more money then spend it going abroad. Stupid, right? Nothing can replace memories! I've noticed that the less holidays I went on the more money I actually spent on clothes, makeup... Well, things that could be easily replaced.

I've decided to put together a wishlist of my top five destinations. Fingers crossed I can tick them all off one day!

Kawaii Gyaru Shop Review: Lace & Ribbons

liz lisa, himekaji, winter

I can finally say that I'm now a himekaji gyaru. It sounds weird saying it like that - himekaji gyaru, it doesn't really flow well but then again just saying "himekaji" sounds weird too. Like himekaji what, exactly? Oh well what I want to say is that I've finally accepted that himekaji might just be the style I'm looking for. It's perfect for going out with friends and even for work which is all I seem to do these days!

But himekaji is still quite difficult for me in winter, so Stephanie suggested I try out this gorgeous red knit! I was going to go ahead with that when my eyes clapped on this equally gorgeous blouse. A couple of weeks later they arrived on my doorstep (you probably recognise these babies in my haul post). I swear it feels like Christmas every time I open a package - especially when I know there's Liz Lisa inside. I couldn't wait to wear everything!

Recent Gyaru Outfits: Jan - Feb

himekaji gyaru, lizzie bee

I've been aiming to do gyaru at least once a week ever since I entered the "real world". So far so good - it makes me really look forward to my "dolling-up" days and I feel more motivated to do things when I make an effort to look good. How weird is that?
But my gyaru looks have really toned down as I haven't attended any meets and all I have been doing lately is shopping, eating or just hanging out with my friends so I've never really had a reason to go all-out. I had promised myself never to tone down, but now I've come to terms with it and accepted it for what it is. That's life I suppose.

Here are a few outfits I've done during January and February. My gyaru self is evolving as I started not giving a crap about fitting into a substyle and just doing what I want to do. My main focus is to wear whatever I want but then do gyaru makeup & hair. I think it's better for me that way.
