Himekaji Girls Challenge! Monotone Co☆De

Good morning cutie ♡ how are you? After the successful sock curls I did overnight (which you can read about in my previous post) I got dressed up for the second day of the himekaji girls challenge! The theme for this outfit is ‘monotone’ and I decided to wear my favourite (replica) Liz Lisa set with my fluffy white legwarmers.

Yes, I am obsessed with these legwarmers (*¯ ³¯*)♡ I am trying to wear them as much as possible before spring arrives!

My Melody Inspired Co*De

Hey cutie! How are you? ♡ I’m so happy because I actually had the energy to dress up and film a YouTube video yesterday! (๑˃ᴗ˂)ﻭ but anyway, this post is going to be a really short one about my My Melody inspired co*de (I’ll chat about the video later on!). We have a weekly challenge in the Himekaji Girls discord and the first prompt is to create an outfit inspired by your fave character! I was torn between Hello Kitty and My Melody but, seeing as I did a Hello Kitty outfit recently, I went with My Melo chan.

Hello Kitty Co*de, Trying New Hair Rollers + Self Care ☆

Hey cutie! How are you? This is going to be a very short and sweet post as I want to share my Hello Kitty inspired co*de (´。• ᵕ •。`) ♡ My friend Kristin gave me a huge box of Hello Kitty merch, including this beautiful Hello Kitty bag which is the main highlight of this outfit! It was the perfect outfit for walking to the post office, as the weather is still pretty chilly over here despite the sun.

I guess this co*de isn’t really “100% gyaru” but I don’t care – I absolutely love it and I felt so happy wearing it! It’s actually my first outfit that I wore for my Hello Kitty boom hahaha. I love how casual and cute it is! Maybe I should write a post about my Hello Kitty boom but to be honest.. I think it’s quite obvious that I love Hello Kitty (⁄ ⁄>⁄ ▽ ⁄<⁄ ⁄)

♡ Okarie twin co*de + a sunny spring! ♡

hello

Hey cutie! How are you? I’ve been feeling so exhausted lately… Work has been really busy so I’ve been working through my lunch breaks and then staying late to finish things off (ಥ﹏ಥ) So for the past couple of weekends I’ve been doing my best to rest so that I can get my energy back again.

Today, though, I finally have energy to put some makeup on and really wanted to do an Okarie twin co*de as I’ve been obsessed with her old style lately (╯✧▽✧)╯ I’m hoping that I have enough energy to film a YouTube video of my recent gets, but we shall see how that goes!

1 Item 6 Ways: Lizmelo Top! ♡

Hey cutie! How are you? I finally, finally, had the energy to create some cute outfit flatlays ( ´ ▽ ` ).。♡ My computer had ran out of battery and I was fed up of scrolling through insta so I forced myself to create 6 different ways to style a Lizmelo top that I bought recently. I created some collages a few days ago so I already had a rough idea of what to do, but I was exhausted after doing this. Happy, but exhausted (╥ω╥)

To be honest you could probably do similar things with any other top… But I wanted to focus on this Lizmelo one because it’s so cute (´,,•ω•,,)♡

By the way – I’m really bad when it comes to remembering the brand names of each item but to be honest most of these clothes are from 10 seasons ago so it doesn’t really matter haha („ಡωಡ„)

Himekaji Girls! Strawberry Chocolate Virtual Tea Party

Hey cutie! How are you? I’m currently sipping some delicious hot chocolate (with a whole load of whipped cream), having just been to a virtual tea party with some himekaji girls! It was so nice finally “meeting” everyone. This meet’s theme was Strawberry Chocolate and I’ll be honest… I was kind of worried because I didn’t really have any items with strawberry print, so instead I just wore my red turtleneck jumper and a brown skirt.

I’ve fallen in love with wearing layered necklaces again (which is heavily inspired by Okarie) and this one is my favourite! I bought it for super cheap from Aliexpress. I wasn’t originally going to wear a beret but then I saw Amber wear one and thought she looked absolutely adorable so I wore one, too!

Himekaji co*de ideas for Winter ❆

Hey cutie! How are you? Today I want to share with you some himekaji co*de ideas for winter. I’ve been losing the will to dress up now that we’re in our third lockdown and I can’t really go out anywhere, so I’ve been creating some cute flatlays to keep me occupied (and also to remind myself that I don’t really need to buy anymore clothes (ノ∀`)). You know that feeling when you look at your wardrobe and think, “oh I’ve got nothing to wear” when actually you bought a dress two months ago that you still haven’t worn haha. Anyway, I’ll stop rambling… let’s go!

Snowy Days, Recent Co*de + A New Project?!

Hey cutie! How are you? Weekends have been pretty crazy lately (despite lockdown) as we’re still trying to work on our kitchen. We were supposed to get more stuff done to it the other weekend but then it started snowing really heavily so we weren’t able to go out to get everything we needed. But this worked out quite well as it meant I could have some fun out in the snow (and allowed me to also wear a super cute outfit tehehe).

We never really get snow like this in our part of the UK and oh my gosh, the snow was so THICK! I absolutely loved the soft crunching noise it made when we walked on the snow. Our cat, on the other hand, wasn’t too much of a fan. I wore my favourite Tralala hoodie and leg warmers!

My Himekaji Wardrobe for Winter!

Hey cutie! How are you? Sorry for the late night post haha but I was just waaaay too excited to post this and wanted to post it now! Okay so a few months ago I have finally found my substyle (not that it’s taken me 10 years or anything…) and have since then started to build my himekaji wardrobe, first focusing on winter items. It’s taken a while and I know that I’ve still got a long way to go, but I wanted to create this post anyway to track my progress! I’ll also include some of my favourite outfits with these said items.

Are you ready? Okay, let’s go!

GO!GO!→Goals for 2021!

Happy New Year

Hey cutie, and happy new year! I originally wanted to dress up to celebrate the new year but instead I’ve spent the day being super lazy and binge watching the Discovery of Witches haha. But today I thought I’d write up some goals for 2021! I’m really hoping this year will be kinder to me than last year (which you can read about over here).

Okay, let’s go! 👌

Beneath the Twinkling Lights! ☆ Mini Christmas Photoshoot

hello

Hey cutie, how are you? So I wanted to quickly write up this post before it’s too late lol because over the weekend I received some pictures from mine and Isobel’s mini photo shoot! I mentioned in a previous post how one of Isobel’s friends took some photos for us for Christmas. Unfortunately it was very dark so we didn’t take a lot… Hopefully next time we can take some more!

Cosy winter co*des + blog day with Isobel

I woke up at 4.30am and couldn’t sleep so I decided to write this blog post instead! This is the first time I’m blogging on my phone… It feels strange but I’m really hoping it’ll make things a lot easier! I quickly want to share with you my blog day with my bestie Isobel. We used to do these once a month but it’s been impossible during lockdown. We are now out of lockdown but things aren’t really back to normal so we tried our best!

Recent Co*de + Our Christmas Living Room

Good morning cutie ♡ I’m so happy that I have the time to finally write this post! A few weeks ago, right near to the middle of November, I decided to put up all of the Christmas decorations to create the cosiest living room ever. I don’t know about you but this year I’m putting my 100% into the Christmas cheer (usually I just do the tree very last minute and that’s it) because it’s the only thing I can look forward to during lockdown. I’ve actually filmed my whole process over on my YouTube channel which I’ve shared below, but I added more decorations since then, so here are some pictures of how it looks (although now my cat has proceeded to knock off a few decorations from the tree…)

Strike a Pose! Winter Photoshoot for Papillon!

Hey cutie! How are you? Aah I’m so happy to finally be able to share this blog post with you! A few months ago me and my bestie Isobel went out to take some photos for the winter/holiday issue of Papillon. I absolutely ADORE these photos as we took these right at the beginning of my fuwa/moko phase… So you can kind of tell how excited I was to be all dressed up in cute and fluffy clothes! My only regret is that the wind/rain absolutely destroyed my curls, but since then I have mastered how to do it so I’m determined to take more photos next time.
