Hyper Japan’s Christmas Market 2015!

Secretly plotting to take this alpaca away…

I can’t believe it’s December already! I am so unprepared for this month – I’ve got tons of Christmas presents & decorations to buy and I’ve no idea what to get for everyone! It sucks… But I’m sure I’ll figure something out!

Speaking of Christmas… Last weekend I went to Hyper Japan’s Christmas Market! I’ve been looking forward to it for a long time – since their last one which I blogged about – but I didn’t know until a week beforehand that I made it onto the fashion show, so let’s just say that it was very last minute! It kind of annoyed me how unorganised they were but… I’ll talk about that later. The fashion show was okay in the end and even though I was only gyaru on stage I didn’t let it get me down because I was able to see all of my amazing friends ♡

Gyaru Nostalgia: Past, Present & Future

It seems like my MA*RS/agejo hiatus is over! It’s been fun trying out different styles but I know now that I can’t stray too far from it. It’s a shame that the new MA*RS collection doesn’t appeal to me, so instead of just limiting myself to that brand I’m going to branch out and do more of a sweet agejo look! (Please note; the style “sweet agejo” doesn’t actually exist, I just like mixing agejo elements with cute looks) I tried it out whilst shopping with my friend Amy, and it brought back so many happy memories where I would wear MA*RS nearly every day…

One Item Five Ways: Tartan/Plaid Shirt

I’ve finally packed up my summer wardrobe and oh my gosh I can’t tell you enough how excited I was to start looking at autumn coordinates! I used to hate autumn, but now I’m so happy that it’s finally here. While I was going through my clothes I realised that it was time to do another “One item five ways” post, and today’s featured item is this tartan/plaid shirt from Primark!

Hyper Japan Summer 2015!

Last week I went to Hyper Japan at the O2 and had an amazing time. I wasn’t too sure that I would’ve been able make it so everything was really last minute, but luckily I was still able to attend the fashion show. This did mean getting up at 6am to get ready, but some things are worth sacrificing for and I was way too excited to be tired anyway.

One Item Five Ways: MA*RS Skirt

I thought it was time to do another one of these posts as I’ve been very naughty recently and bought some new clothes! I know I probably shouldn’t have but I just couldn’t resist. I don’t regret it though, which is probably even worse…

This time I’ll be creating 5 outfits with one of my favourite MA*RS skirts! Agejo is my favourite style, and I want to make it wearable for all seasons, but this time I’m just focusing on summer outfits. So here goes!

Recent Gyaru Coords

Does anyone else here suffer from hayfever? I’m asking because I’m praying that I’m not the only one currently with tissue stuck up in their nostrils to stop it from overflowing (disgusting, I know). It’s gotten so bad this year, and it’s the main culprit of my messed up eye. But you’ll be happy to hear that my eye has finally healed! Yay!

I’ve taken a few pictures of my gyaru coords and makeup over the past few weeks but I didn’t take enough to make a blog post about each one, so I’m putting them all together in this post!

A New Direction? Mermaid Princess!

mermaid, princess, mahoukei, jfashion, kawaii

Life has been quite… Hectic for me lately. I’m going through an emotional roller-coaster at the moment which was triggered by my stupid eye. To cut the story short; my eye went poop and my self-esteem went down. Thank goodness I have really supportive friends! I don’t know what I would do without you peeps.

This has really affected the “gyaru me” because gyaru is very make-up orientated, but I took this chance to look at other Japanese fashion styles. I haven’t pinpointed the one I like yet but I’m loving pastels and mermaids and general magical stuff lately! I went shopping with my friend Amy last weekend and bought this super cute mermaid blouse & pastel pink jeans, and I wore it to her birthday party.

So here goes… A new me! (Maybe?) I’m calling this my mermaid princess look tehe.

One Item Five Ways: Liz Lisa Skirt

I’m so happy that everyone liked my haul post – I’m going to try and do more in future but next time I’ll save the links to everything I buy! eBay has saved my life, and I’ll definitely shop from there from now on (with the occasional cheeky shop elsewhere).

For now, I just want to work with what I’ve got! I have so many clothes, so why is it so hard to put an outfit together? To help me out a bit I’ve decided to do a “one item in five ways” post like they did in the old gyaru magazines. It’ll help me become more creative with my clothes and save me from buying something that I already have. In this post I’m going to create five different outfits for my Liz Lisa skirt! I’m in love with it, and I’m so glad that I’ve managed to get the complete set from Kawaii Gyaru Shop.

A Touch of Magic!

Hey cuties! How are you today? ♡

I went to see Cinderella with a friend last weekend! I was supposed to see it ages ago but I had to push back my plans because I was ill ;_; So it gave me something to look forward to!

I decided to wear something a bit more ‘princess-y’, and what’s more princess-like than my Liz Lisa set? I’m so happy that I was able to get this from Kawaii Gyaru Shop as they sell out so quickly… I’m hoping to get more Liz Lisa items when it gets warmer. Idk why but I’ve been really digging light, ‘girly’ gyaru looks!

Instead of wearing the whole set I just wore the top and paired it with some light-coloured jeans to make it look more casual. It’s finally starting to get warm enough to wear all of my spring stuff!

I also received my Sailor Moon Selfie Stick from Official Syndrome Store that I won in a giveaway back in February! There were a few complications with shipping (Easter is a b*tch in terms of postage) but I was so happy to receive it in the end. I was so worried that it was going to be lost in the mail again.

As I had an hour or so to spare I decided to have a play around with it. I’m still trying to get to grips with it… I can’t balance anything to save my life! 

I love this selfie stick! It’s going to take me a while to get used to, but it’s so cute! ꒰* ॢꈍ◡ꈍ ॢ꒱.*˚‧♡

After my selfie session I went off to the cinema! Is it me or is it getting more and more expensive to go and watch films nowadays? I easily spent nearly £15 just buying a ticket and some popcorn o_o Such a rip off! But I had a really nice time all the same. I just loved Cinderella’s ball dress, and the prince was played by Richard Madden who I really liked in Game of Thrones. 

That dress *_*

After the cinema I then treated myself to some ice-cream/sundae! I got ‘Chocolate Overload’ and it was delicious *3*

That’s all for today! Have you guys seen Cinderella? I would definitely recommend the film to those
who love Disney! It pretty much stuck to the original storyline, and the
costume design was amazing.

Until next Sunday~

In the Name of the Moon, Sailor Gyaru!

Hey cuties! How are you today?

It was the International Day of Happiness a few days ago (or weeks, I’m really behind on blogging haha). I didn’t know about it until I read it on Facebook, and strangely enough it was a really good day for me. One of the main things was that my bby Chewiee came over to visit!

We’ve both been really digging into the whole Swankiss look recently, so when she came round we tried it out! I really want to be able to put together some Swankiss-inspired outfits but I’m still really nervous about dressing over-the-top cute ;_; So my outfit wasn’t really Swankiss inspired… I just wanted an excuse to wear my Sailor Moon fleece tehehehe~ Magical Girl Power! Hopefully next time I can put together a more Swankiss inspired coordinate, but today I am Sailor Gyaru!

I really love the way the shop staff at Swankiss incorporate lots of bright colours, especially in their eye makeup. I was starting to get really bored of just wearing shades of brown and blacks all of the time, so for that day I decided to go for blues and pinks tones. I also tried out eye bags! I used to think it was really weird and a bit painful to look out, but now I think it’s super cute!

Time for some selfies! The lighting in my room was so good that day!

We did a little shopping and I treated myself to a new dress that I think looks great with onee gyaru as well as a cute satchel-sorta-bag to go with my outfit! The rest were just some makeup necessities. It’s amazing how much makeup costs o_o Then we headed out to get some ice-cream! I got “Strawberry Blonde”.

After that we just relaxed and then went out for some Chinese food in the evening before she had to go. It was so lovely to just chill out!

I’ve been thinking a lot about my style over the past week or so… Don’t get me wrong, I’ll never leave agejo completely, but I think it’s nice to dabble with new styles and right now I feel a lot more comfortable doing gal make & hair but ditching the brand clothes. I’ll see how this goes!

Alright I guess that’s it for today! Until next Sunday!

Oh Sweet Agejo~

Hey cutie patooties! How are you?

I’ve been obsessed with wearing pink lately, I just can’t get enough of it! It’s kind of annoying though because my wardrobe is mostly black and dark pink, not the light pink that I’m looking for, but I’m making do! 

Ages ago I mentioned mixing up with agejo and hime, and I’ve been trying it out quite a lot recently! I’m focusing more on pink and a cute appearance instead of really sexy. I actually really like it >\< So this post will be a series of outfits

Ice Cream Date~
I did this style when me and my boyfriend went on a date to a nice cafe! It was so cold… I think Germany has trained me on how to wear lots of thin layers of tights to keep me warm tehe. I got quite frustrated because I really wanted to try out a new hairstyle but it went horribly wrong. I panicked, and covered it up with pigtails so it was all sorted by the time my boyfriend arrived to go on our date ;D mission accomplished!

Here was my outfit~

And pics of the cafe! It was so cute! I loved the decorations.

Birthday Get-Together
I was trying so hard to look casual for this but still ended up spending about an hour on my hair @_@ doing my hair is an absolute nightmare! Especially when it comes to curling it. I’m going to try out a way to curl my hair overnight by using those spongey-curlers or something. Can’t remember what they were called!

I wore my favourite MA*RS sweater! I love it so much. I think you can wear it so that it slips a little down the shoulders, but I quite like it like this.

Valentine’s Day – Agejo Princess
I also wore this style on Valentine’s Day! Me and my boyfriend couldn’t celebrate it on the actual day as he was working, so we spend the whole of Sunday together
I wanted to dress as a princess for him and wore this pink crop sweater that I bought a while back but never got a chance to wear! It took me ages to pick an outfit… And here it is!

I guess I could call this outfit “Agejo princess?” Tehehehe ~ This is my favourite hairstyle >\\< and my hair stayed curly! Could you believe it?

I made some nails for Valentine’s Day Unfortunately I couldn’t get them off so I had to use nail remover which kind of disintegrated them ;_; But oh wells! At least I can now focus on producing better designs ^^

We went to see Big Hero 6! Gosh I love that film so much… The animation was beautiful although now I’m torn between that and How to Train Your Dragon 2! I love Toothless so much… I’m so conflicted ;_; I think I’ll be happy with either one if they won an Oscar! Have you seen big hero 6 yet? If not I’d definitely recommend it!

After that we headed to a Chinese restaurant! The waitress there recognised me from before which was super cute >\\\< and like before, the food was yummy! Really cheap too! I got the beef egg noodle soup~

Then we went back to mine, took some selfies and chilled out. This is my favourite selfie <3 I wish my lighting and camera quality was better but oh well!

<3

That’s all for today! I really want to do this style more often but first I need to find more clothes for it… Hmm, does this mean I can buy new- NO! No I can’t! I need to save up so badly ;_; I’m such a big spender!

Sigh. I hope I’m not the only one with this problem! But oh well! 

Until next Sunday my cuties have a brilliant weekend & week!

Baby Steps to Hime Gyaru!

hime gyaru, gaijin gyaru

This was going to be a post about my Christmas celebrations but seeing as I haven’t taken any photos… Well, that’s not going to happen but I do have a photo of my outfit and my face to make up for it! I tried out hime gyaru because I finally managed to get my hands on a Princess Melody dress. It was really short (you could see my butt cheeks) so I bought a skirt to go underneath it.

Agejo Gyaru at MCM Expo!

Hey everyone! How are you? Hope you’re having a good weekend so far!

Last week I went to MCM Expo! I did OTT agejo gyaru and I was quite nervous about this because I’ve never done this before, but then I thought about all of the amazing people I was going to see ଘ꒰◍ॢ•ᴗ•◍ॢ꒱༌✩ plus I really wanted to wear my new MA*RS socks and Ruby Rose headband that Charli got for me

I met my friend Melissa at expo and after going through the queue we headed straight to meet a few of my friends. It was a bit confusing because everything is split into two rooms now… But it means that there are more stalls to buy from tehehe. So for the rest of the day we scoured the stalls and bought lots of goodies! I did a lot of running around after amazing cosplayers and at one point I actually said to someone, “No please don’t go! I want to take a photo of you!” Sad, I know ^^” Here are some photos!
