Hey cutie! I’m Lizzie ♡
And I loooove a Japanese fashion called gyaru! Here I share my gyaru life – this includes the outfits I wear, the people I meet, and the things I’ve learnt along the way (which I share in my lil’ gyaru advice section). My main gyaru style is himekaji which means “casual princess”!
I’m also a huge lover of all things cute and you might find me either scoffing cakes or pulling faces at the camera shouting ‘Agepoyo!’. It was my love for gyaru that brought me to the magical world of blogging as I wanted a way to document everything that I learnt about it – the good, the bad, and the ugly. And here we are!
Wait… What exactly is ‘gyaru’?
Gyaru is a Japanese fashion that originated in the 90s’ as a rebellion against the typical beauty standards in Japan (e.g. dark hair and pale skin). Instead these gyaru – or ‘gals’ – tanned their skin and bleached their hair! It has developed a lot since then, but the dramatic eye-makeup and bold attitude remains. It branched out into several ‘substyles’ – with my favourites being himekaji (casual princess) and gyaru kei (general gyaru look)! I wrote more about this over here if you wanna’ delve into the history and meaning of gyaru.
Soooo what will I find on this blog?
Here I blog like it’s 2010 – meaning this place is still my online diary and each post is filled with cute graphics. Here I’ll share my tips and tricks in my gyaru advice section as well as my everyday gyaru life, my favourite co*des (which means my outfits), and other bits and bobs along the way!
