Autumn’s approching on falling leaves

OH HOW POETIC.

Eherm. Yeah anyways I thought that I may as well write a blog post and re-emerge back into the blogging world with a boom, but it’s not really gonna be a boom just a… Well, whatever. Basically the “mini hiatus” thing was a huge fail so instead of going on one I might just blog less until I look good lololol.

As you all may know I’ve moved into a completely new area so I’ve been struggling a lil’, but I’m much better now. I’m slowly getting used to cooking for myself and shizz, and also travelling a hell of a lot so (hopefully) this is making me more independent. I hated relying on my parents all of the time at home which is why as soon as I got here I started applying for jobs.

ANYWAYS. Enough of me rambling on about how pathetic I am with looking after myself, I’m going to show you some piccies! I took the lil’ break as a way to improve as a gal and have bought quite a few newer products and did some more research~ I’m basically retracing my steps, and I want to try out new things too ^^

This coord was inspired by my previous post on the “Get the Look” series! ^^

BHS shirt, Primark belt, New Look vest, H&M skirt,

Reveal leggings, Dorothy Perkins heels.

As you can see, I did an amaazing plait in my hair *cough*boughtit*cough* ;D

Close up of my eye~ With my new lower lashes! ^^

I also saw this posted on G_V the other week:

To the person who posted this: Thank you so much. You really don’t know how much this meant to me… Wow, I’m just so amazed that someone actually cared about me to write this <3 Thank you! And no, I am definitely not gonna’ leave Gal 😀 Nothing will ever make me leave gal unless I get suddenly uber old lolololol.

Speaking of leaving Gyaru… I’m sad to announce that the amazing circle that I was in, Delight, has disbanded ;__; There were loads of happy memories that I have with Delight, including improving my look and meeting with other gals… But alas, it’s over *sob*. A moments silence for Delight if you please~

More on my next post! Wanna see the belt I was working on? Then wait for my next post tehehehehe ;D

P.s I changed my layout. Again. Mwahahaha.

Autumn’s itching closer

I’ve been feeling really depressed and uninspired lately, and it doesn’t really help that it’s so stressful living away from home. I have to buy my own food, cut down on spending (even if I do need it) and travel goodness knows how many times, back and forth between the town that I’m staying in and the place I need to go to.

Fortunately I’m settling in well with my landlady; she’s so nice to me, and helps me out a lot and also teaches me how to do things like use the library, use the washing machine… She even walks me to town to show me the way ^^

I’ve made a couple of friends too, but I still feel kinda lonely… I need to arrange more meet ups with friends, but then that means money and it’s not like I’ve got a job or anything… Sigh. I miss everyone back home so much, especially my boyfriend <3

So yeah, this is basically going to be a really depressing blog post :/ Sorry guys ;_;

I tried dolling up today but Idk, it’s either because of my lazy mood or depressing mood that I feel as if I don’t look Gal :/ Even though I do my normal makeup it’s just… Yeah. Maybe I should just stick with doing the more dramatic eye make until my lenses arrive (which is about another month). Talking about things missing I seem to have left most of my clothes and lashes at home. Damn.
And my lower lashes don’t show up either fml. But, tbh, they were the ones that I first wore when I first bought lower lashes so I weren’t expecting anything magical with them.

Covered my lips as they’re chapped ;_;

New top/jumper from QS, shorts from Reveal, 

belt from random chinese shop, Tammy leggings, 

Brantano heels.

So I bought a new jumper from this bargain shop and it inspired me to try out Mode Gal~ I’m starting to really like it o_O So I might try out Mode more often… It’s kinda easy to do their coords too ^^

I suppose that’s all for now~

Busy week (Lots of piccies!)

Wow it’s been such a busy week getting ready for uni and shizz. There was the rushing around of getting supplies like towels and what not, and I haven’t really got my clothes packed yet… Whoops.
I can’t believe that I’m actually going to uni!
It’s scary because I’ll be so far away from home, but I’m pretty excited too. I’ll be finally on my own looking after myself (which I’ll probably do a really shit job of).

But yeah. This week was a really busy week arranging to meet people, so let’s start with last Wednesday~
I went over to Amelie’s house for a sleepover! We wanted to have a meet before I moved house  ^^ I got dolled up beforehand (which was utter chaos btw ’cause my mum dragged me to Morrisons an hour before I had to leave) and tried out doing loose curls, than headed off to her house~

Picture of us two in Forever21~

Then we got to her house and Eri met us there and we had a right ol’ girly time browsing host websites, watching Visual Kei music, eating this om nom nom dinner, and she did my hair! It was so so pretty *__* I didn’t want to take it down lololol – but it was like, half 12 at night. Here are some photos of my hair! ^^

Amelie starting to do my hair~

And the finished product! ^^ 

It’s amazing, isn’t it? It’s a shame that my camera on my phone didn’t pick up every detail ;__;

Then we headed off to bed ;D and watched this Japanese zombie film 😛 And the next morning we woke up at around half 12 o_O Wow… That’s the latest I’ve been in bed 😛 But anyways, I had lots and lots of fun with Amelie & Eri! I’ll miss them so so much when I go ;__; <33333333333333

And now for some more pictures of my hair & make before I went over to Amelie’s ~

Also, Amelie is hosting a sales blog! Please check out her items <3 

She sells really cuuute clothes, and will also be selling some manga stuff soon too! ^^ 

OraOra Gal & One Lovely Blog Award

Hey guys! How’re you all today?

Sorry that I haven’t really been dolling up recently… I generally felt shit lawls 😛 What happened was that for the past week I’ve been going to bed late but getting woken up extremely early (like, 8am) because of my sis going to school. Doesn’t really help that my immune system is crap as crap can be and on Friday I had to get up extremely early to enroll at uni at 9am (which was, btw, 3 hours from home >_<“). But yeah, I really aught to do more exercises and shizz :/ 

Buuut on Sunday I had an excuse to doll up; I was going out with le boyf on a date in what seems like forever. We went to this a lovely pub (pretty decently priced too! <3) I wanted to go for the Oraora gal look as it had been catching my eye lately ^^ 

Top from a random chinese shop, Reveal shorts, Brantano

heels. 

I wanted to achieve this hairstyle here: 

And it went quite well, although mine curled more at the ends >_<” Does anyone have any idea on how to achieve this look? ^^ I tried doing the ends and then backcombing, but it didn’t go so well ;__; 

I received the “One Lovely Blog” award from the May, Moeri & Oreri~ They are French bloggers & really sweet! Please check out their blog ^^

♥ Last Fri-Thursday Night! ^^ ♥

So I’m REALLY behind on keeping this blog updated, seeing as my last post was of my Birthday and the post before that was one before I went on holiday D: So it’s all gonna be a mess over the next couple of posts, but hopefully after that it’ll be all fixed ^^

So what did I do last week and this week? Well, last Thursday I went out for the first time for drinking! We didn’t go to a nightclub or anything but to this place called Wetherspoons which does amaaazing cocktails and Pitchers. The boyf got me the Blue Lagoon~

It’s such a pretty colour *__*

And this is what I wore! ^^ Sorry for the crap quality, my camera went kaput and so I had to use my phone afterwards >_<”

Top/blouse from DreamV, Reveal shorts, Primark dollies,

Muse necklace.

Ooh, also, here’s a piccie of my recent gets (including the ones from holiday in Spain). I forgot to do the rounded corners on it OTL

Aaand yesterday I went to meet Amelie & Eri! It was a last minute decision, but I was so happy to see them~ We didn’t take many photos but yeaah, we had a good time! ^^ And I didn’t buy anything apart from food o_O I’ll do another post of my trip , just to spread everything out a lil’ ^^

I just realised that I haven’t updated my Gyaru Improvement Meme! So here it is ^^

Also, I GOT INTO UNI! Hell yeaaaah! I’m so so happy that I got the grades! 😀 Eeek! Need to save up for my new (currently non existant) home! ^^

♥ Sunny Days, Mozzie Bites & Beautiful Sceneries ♥

I secretly crept away on holiday to Spain (like a ninja) with my mozzie patches on and ready. But OH NO the lil’ bastards still managed to bite me -_- So much for lookin’ good for my birthday… Hopefully they’ll heal up by then.
Fortunately they only appeared on the last day so I’ve got plenty of piccies for y’all mozzie free ;D Although my lower falsies fell apart after the first couple of days so I kinda gave up with wearing them 😛

I’ve still got a post that I wanted to do before I go on holiday but it kinda didn’t happen, so will be posting that up soon ^^ I wanna improve in my posts ’cause my recent ones are shite (to be fair) and the quality really really crap D:

I’m not gonna talk much ’cause I’m crap at those really long posts so just gonna spam y’all with piccies now >:] I’m leaving out my daily looks for another post ’cause it’ll be waaay too many piccies in one post~ So everything will be spread out; this one is for piccies of the scenery and me & my sis, another for my make and another for my coords ^^

So we started off with a nice piccie… Little did I know that Kathy wanted to do a silly pose 

… And so it turned into a herp-derp time ;D

That’s all for now,

Lizzie <333

♥ Is it Autumn already or something? ♥

WHERE IS MY SUN?! MY BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL SUN?!
Yeppers, the weather has been pretty shitty recently -_- Eurgh, sooo annoying. It feels like autumn already and we’re only in July! D:

Aherm, aaaanyways…
I’ve been meaning to post this aaaages ago but just got carried away with my post about the Delight meet last Saturday, so I might as well just post it now ;D

I tried doing a different hairstyle to my usual curls but it didn’t turn out so well ;___; I wanted to do something like this:

And mine turned out like this:

All in all, this hairstyle didn’t really go so well… I think I might just hunt down for some more tutorials on Youtube, but the people on there just make everything look so easy D: djgfbkfgdkj. Sucks bum. I think I might need to invest in some new straighteners AND curlers at the same time ;___; Sigh, Gyaru is so so expensive… What curlers & straighteners do you gals use? ^^

J’ai essayé de faire un style différent pour mes cheveux mais avec les mauvaise résultats. Je pense que je dois trouver des tuts en ligne et acheter un nouveau « straighters » et « curlers » :___ ; Quelques sortes de « straighteners » et « curlers » tu as utilisé ? 

So that was a piccie of a couple of days ago… Now for more recent photos! ^^

I wanted to try out a new technique for my lower lashes without drawing a line on the bottom, and this is how it turned out like~

Oh yes, I went to see the last Harry Potter film ever on Wednesday, and I cried a lil’ at the end ;___; Poor poor Snape… Tbh I cried more at the end of the book than the film lawls 😛

Primark top and blouse, New Look Jeans, Claire’s Necklace, Primark flats

Can you please help me improve this look? I think it’s a lil’ boring :/

Ooh also, I’ve completely revamped my blog! I’ve changed the layout, header image, messed around with some new icons for the side… And also added new pages! Tehehe ^^

J’ai essayé un nouveau style pour mes faux cils aussi quand je suis allee au cinema avec mon petit copain pour regarder Harry Potter ! J’ai mis à pleurer un peu à la fin, mais plus dans la fin du livre 😛

Aussi, j’ai changé l’apparence de mon blog tehe~ Je prefere ce look-ci et j’ai ajouté plus de pages ^^  

That’s all for now,
Lizzie <333

♥ Review – Claire’s Eye Glitter ♥

 

This is not a sponsored review! n_n~ Everything is done by me and with only my own opinion on the product. 

So whilst I was with my gal friends I spotted this glitter palette in Claire’s. It reminded me of the ones they do at Urban Decay, and so bought it straight away.
I was, however, really disappointed.

Let’s start with the photos first~

So this is what the glitter palette looks like. Looks as if it’s a “dusty” glitter one, doesn’t it? It is in fact one of those creamy eyeshadows, which I didn’t really expect (I touched it a lil’ when I opened it and was surprised because I was expecting it to be a powder eyeshadow). The colours are really pretty, especially the blue one next to the black~ Something that attracted me to the palette in the first place.

Let’s go for a close up picture so that we could see the eyeshadow a lil’ more clearly~ 

So yes, the colours are very pretty, but do they show up on the skin well? Instead of putting it on my eyelids and going through the process of taking it off everytime, I put some swipes on my hand instead.

It was very hard to make the eyeshadows visible, and I had to do a couple of layers each to actually make them show up on my skin. And even after that they don’t show up very well, especially the silver. The glitter however does show up, and the black and blue shades seems to be doing okay. 

Even though I got some poor results from the eyeshadows actually showing up on the skin I still carried on because I wanted to test how long they’ll last. Instead of walking around with eyeshadow on my hand for a couple of hours I just grabbed a tissue and wiped them a lil’. All of them apart from the black faded away, leaving behind some areas of glitter where they used to be.

So if you want to rub your eyes whilst weairng this, maybe you shouldn’t. Actually, if you’re wearing makeup at all you shouldn’t rub your eyes just in case you hurt them~ 

Although I have to say that this test was a bit unfair because I had rubbed the eyeshadow. All eyeshadows would come off after this, so I decided to test it by wearing the black shade on my eyelids.

Tada! This is what it’ll look like when applied to the eyelid. As you can see, even the black doesn’t come up very well, and this was even after several layers! The glitter definitely shows, but not the colour. It creates an interesting gradient though which might be useful if you wanted to use this on top of another eyeshadow. 

This is what the eyeshadow looks like when I have my falsies on. It does look alright, but not as great as I expected it to be. But at least it shows up! 

So how much eyeshadow did I actually use for this eye?

This much.

See? It’s nearly half of the eyeshadow! And that’s only for my first time (even if I did use a lil’ bit on my hand). 

What the applicator brush looks like after attacking the eyeshadow.

So what are the final results of this eyeshadow palette from Claire’s?

Colour ♥ ♥ 

Amount in each section 

Price ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥  (as it was only £4)

Performance 

Overall ♥ 

Overall, I didn’t really like this palette much even though the colours are really pretty. If it had been a powder eyeshadow then maybe it would’ve come up more when applied. The amount of eyeshadow in the palette is very low, although that was to be expected because of the price. Even though the eyeshadow didn’t really come up very well, it did last even after a couple of hours. So it is very good if you want to wear it for a whole day; you just need to pile on the eyeshadow (and by then it might run out and you’d have to buy a new palette!)

What I’d say is that this palette would be put to better use if you used another eyeshadow as a base, and used the glitter on this one to create an interesting effect. 

Other than that, I have another eyeshadow palette but of powder which performed far better than their creme ones. So they do do decent eyeshadows, it’s just this series isn’t as great (in my opinion). They are particularly   good if you want to buy cheap eyeshadows but of a decent quality ^^

♥ Hazy Summer Days ♥

For some reason all of my pictures seem a lil’ hazy o_O Idk whether it’s because of the sunlight but whatever, I think it looks cool :3
Over the past couple of days it’s been kinda hot and rainy, but yesterday it was beautiful. It was warm, sunny, with a lil’ bit of a breeze; a perfect summer’s day. It was even more perfect with my boyf who I spent most of the day with ^3^

I’ve changed my layout a lil’ bit because I wanted a change and got bored with my old one 😛 The header image is still the same though as I like it ^^ Idk if I’ll change it anytime soon 😛

I can’t wait until I go on holiday, which will be in the next couple of weeks~ So if I suddenly stop posting, you’ll know why 😛 Just thought I’d warn you now instead of later (as I might forget lawls :P) Where are yoou gals going for the holidays? Somewhere nice and hot, or somewhere much cooler because you’re fed up of the heat? 😛 

My recent buys~ I’ve been trying to spend less on clothes and shizzle to save up for the Delight Meet this Saturday! I really can’t wait ’cause I’ll get to see near enough everyone in Delight ^3^

I’ve finally got a new bikini! It’s somewhat different to my old ones as this one is more grown-up (all of my other ones had polka dots or flowers lawls :P) so I’m in love with it ^3^

And I know that it’s a bit hot but I really liked this cropped crochet jumper~ Even though it’s summer I still worry on what to wear for the winter ;___;

Pour quelque raison mes photos ont un effet de flou o_O Je ne sais pas si c’était à cause du soleil mais je le trouve cool :3
Dans les derniers jours il faisait du soleil mais avec de pluie, mais hier il faisait beau. Il faisait chaud, il y avait plein du soleil avec un petit peu de brise ; un jour parfait pour d’été. Et avec mon petit ami c’était plus parfait ^3^

J’ai changer l’apparence de mon blog parce que je m’ennuyais avec l’autre 😛 Mais l’image est la même chose car je l’aime ^^

Je ne peux pas attendre pour le jour ou je commencerais mes vacances à étranger~ Alors, si j’avais arrêté d’écrire un blog dans un proche avenir, tu saurais la raison 😛

J’essaye d’acheter moins de choses pour que je puisse avoir plus d’argent quand je rencontrai mes amis de Delight ^^Je suis très excitant >//<

Primark top, West One skirt, New look shoes and socks, Primark bag.


Now, onto the photos! ^^ Warning: Pic spam alert 😛

That’s all for now,

Lizzie <333

♥ Coords & Mode Gyaru ♥

Found this cheeky photo on my phone from my last dolling up!~

Hey guys! How’re you all this lovely evening? ^^

Sorry for not writing my blogs in French much… Nowadays I don’t have a lot of time to spend writing a blog in French because it takes a hell of a lot of time – more than half an hour – so I tend to leave it out. Only when I’ve got loads of time can I write in French ’cause I really wanna keep on practising even though I’ve finished. So yeaah! ^^

This week hasn’t exactly been bright and sunny, so I’ve been feeling really lazy and keep having to change my coords ’cause of the rain and shizzle. I was, however, able to dress in Mode (something different to what I’ve done before) and I really like it o_O I chose to do this lil’ “theme” with my beautiful Gyaru sis Riverr ^^ Please check out her post here!
So yeaah! Here are some piccies ^^

Zomg I really need some straighteners~ Mine’s really crappy as you can kinda tell ;___; 

(Outfit created with some help & inspiration from Emmie)

New Look crochet top, New Look vest, Forever 21 belt, Primark maxi skirt, New Look sandals.

Je dois écrire ce blog très rapidement en français à cause du manque de temps. De nos jours je n’ai pas beaucoup de temps de passer sur l’internet et c’est difficile d’écrire un blog en français au moins d’une demie heure, alors c’était la raison que je n’écris pas en français beaucoup. Mais j’écrirai aujourd’hui ^^

Il ne faisait pas beau cette semaine… Alors je me sens très paresseuse et je dois changer mes vêtements beaucoup de temps à cause du manque du soleil ;__ ; Mais j’ai essaye d’habiller « Mode Gyaru » et je l’aime ! Il y a des photos~

I’ve also got a piccie from the day before of my outfit ’cause I’m focusing more on my coords now as I need to improve in them~

Blouse from China, Tammy shorts, New look OTK socks and shoes. 

So yeah! Haven’t really got much to write for today, but these few pictures ^^

That’s all for now,

Lizzie <333

Yay it’s May! ^^~

Hey guys! How’re you all today? ^^

For this week I decided to wear my new “ripped” leggings! I really wanted to buy a pair of jeans and rip them, but buying ripped leggings was just so much cheaper as there’s no such thing as cheap jeans (I don’t think?)

Righties, well here’s my outfit! ^^

Outfit rundown:

Hoodie: Online

Vest: Next

Legging: Reveal

Shoes: Brantano?

I’m trying my best to take into account all those things that people said I needed to improve in one of my previous posts ^^ I hope that I’ve improved as a Gyaru! ^^ Also I’d like to thank all of those lovely people who commented on my circle lens post and gave me advice on that ^^
I made it so that my contouring shadows were darker so that they could be seen easily by my camera~ Did it work? ^^ I also tried out a new style of doing my eyes; the droopy style that is often adopted by Okarie ^^ I was about to do her pigtailed hairstyle as well but it didn’t really go with the sweet rokku theme D:

Sorry if the picture is a bit blurry, but that is what my eye makeup looked like ^^
My hand shook a lot when I was doing the bottom line so sorry if it’s a bit wobbly ;_______; I’ll try better next time ^^ I wore dark&light lbrown eyeshadow as well as black ^^ I should’ve taken another picture D:

Onto the pictures! ^^

I realised when taking these pictures I didn’t really do any new poses, so I searched on tumblr for some new ones ^^ I’ll put it on another post ’cause I wanna collect loooads~

That’s all for now folks ^^

Lizzie <3

Also, as of today I’m doing my own themes as well as the one with Katie ^^

Shopping!

 

Hey guys!

I haven’t been shopping in absolutely AGES but on Sunday I decided to treat myself tehe~ I’ve also bought a few things online including my BeautyUK blusher! 😀

This was what the packaging looked like~ It was an A4 envelope, and the blusher was covered in bubblewrap! Was so awesome, and nicely wrapped I must say ^^ I also got a voucher for 10% discount from my next buy 😀

Lookin’ good, ne~? I’ve been wearing it in my last two posts 😀

 The other things I bought on Sunday! 😀

(This dress was a killer o_e £35?! Is worth it though)

Zomg I almost missed this but luckily I spotted it as I was walking out of the shop! It was the last one too tehehehe~ 

That’s all for now ^^

Lizzie <333

My new dress! :D

On Tuesday I went to town with my mum and sis to get some stuff done – which ended up not being done so I have to go again soon >_<” – and I came across a beautiful dress in the Miss Selfridge section! As soon as I laid eyes upon it I knew that I had to get it, although it was marked £40 >_<” Luckily there was a woman nearby who worked there and she told me that it was now reduced to £20 😀 It reminded me so much of the clothes from Liz Lisa that I was so grateful when my mum said that she’d buy it for me <3

Sorry for the crappy picture quality >_<” But from now on I’m going to try my best to take pictures on my camera ^_^ It’s just that it doesn’t really show up some stuff very well >_<”


I can’t think of what colour OTK socks to wear with this dress, ’cause obviously as it’s still gonna be a bit nippy during spring I wanna be able to wear socks with it. When it’s summer I’ll wear nothing (ooer) ;D
And seeing as I’m so crap with coords I’ve decided to take pictures of my clothes and create collabs for different possible outfits 😀 I’ll be posting one very soon – possibly in about my new post – so keep an eye out for them please 😀 Tehehehehe ^_^

I’m doing very well with my points system! I am now able to buy (when I next go into town that is :P) eyeshadow, a hello kitty keyring and rollers ^_^ But now I’m back on 15 points ;________;

Shopping list~

 


Hey guys!

Because it’s a Tuesday and I’m extremely bored at home doing basically nothing I decided to make a shopping list of all the things that I want/need~

Hopefully this will help me know what to save up for and shizzle as I has no moneys ;_____; I’ll keep on adding to it as I find more and more things to buy ^_^
