Sugar & Spice

Hey everyone! How are you?
I’ve had a fantastic week (and weekend) so far; I’m back at home with my family and friends and I didn’t realise how much I’ve missed everyone until I had to drive home. I just couldn’t wait to get past all of the traffic! I guess home really is where the heart is.

I spent the first few days meeting my old friends and having good quality catch-up time, and what’s better to catch up then over some shopping and iced coffee? Below are my three outfits on the days that I went out! 

Sweetheart
This was my outfit where I met up with my friend Annie, and perhaps the first time I wore “proper” makeup in a long time. As you can see, I couldn’t stay away from MA*RS for long. I’ve decided that it’s going to be hard to completely avoid it so I’m going to keep on wearing it until I’ve built up my hime wardrobe. It was on this day that I started my shopping spree… Whoops.

 

Top: MA*RS / Shorts: Reveal / Heels: Dorothy Perkins / 

Acc: Muse & GOLDS Infinity

I put my hair up because it got way too hot with it down… Summer is definitely here!

Lace & Frills
And this was my outfit when I went to see “The Fault in Our Stars” with my sister! I wore my new shorts and top because it was way too hot to wear the dress with it. I also wore my new shoes as well (which I adore, by the way).

I haven’t really done this sort of style before… It was really “sweet”, but I really like it! It’s completely different to what I usually wear. I followed one of the tutorials in my post “Easy Gyaru Makeup & Hair Tutorials” as I didn’t have time to style it dramatically. 

 Blouse: New Look / Shorts: Spreepicky / Socks: Primark / 

Shoes: Sweet Soul Shop / Acc: Primark & eBay

I know I’m a bit behind but… Have you guys seen “The Fault in Our Stars”? I read the book so I knew it was going to happen but I still blubbed like a baby. I cried so much that my lower lashes were hanging halfway down my face. Not a good look.

Vintage Doll

This was another “sweet” coord where I wore my Liz Lisa dress kindly sponsored by Kawaii Gyaru Shop! I love it so so much, thank you sweetie Enter the code LIZBEE to get a discount!

Dress: Liz Lisa (Kawaii Gyaru Shop) coupon code: LIZBEE  /

Bag: Primark / Socks: Primark 

Shoes: New Look / Acc: Primark & New Look

So a little bit about the dress… It’s absolutely adorable. I felt like a doll pairing it with my new heeled brogues and lace socks, and it wasn’t too hot to wear at all despite it having two layers (which is great because then that means it isn’t see-through!) It’s really good for that casual-sweet style, and so I wore it when I met up with my friend for a meal and catch-up.

Kawaii Gyaru Shop sells lots and lots of cute Liz Lisa clothes as well as Sanrio accessories!

You should check them out! They are really nice and the owner is so lovely to talk to, and I think she has great taste. So go, buy! Tehehehe. ♡ Don’t forget to enter the code LIZBEE to get a discount!

Anyway, I guess that’s all for today. I hope you like my outfits! Have a lovely rest of the week, and I’ll see you next Sunday! Ciao~

Reverie

persunmall review, himekaji, gyaru, gaijin gyaru

I am so sorry that I wasn’t able to post last week (but would you let me off because I posted it on my FB? Hahaha). I was just so caught up with uni work that I didn’t have the time to dress up nice or do anything about blogging so I had to take a break. But now that uni is over I feel a bit… Empty. I have been studying for most of my life and now I feel like I feel lost in reverie.

Dollar, Dollar, Bill

casual gaijin gyaru

Is it just me or has the whole clock-going-forward thing really set you in a good mood? It has for me, as it’s a reminder that spring is creeping closer. I am so happy that I no longer have to wear long boring coats and 10000000x sweaters.

I’ve been really digging statement t-shirts this spring which is really weird because I used to think that they were ever so boring and unoriginal, but this dollar t-shirt really got me into them. I’ve got about three of such t-shirts now and I keep flicking between them but today I’m wearing this dollar one with my gorgeous high-waisted shorts that only Miss Selfridge can do.

Rosey Rabbit

I’m back vlogging again! This time is another video for Pixie Bunny where I talk about one of our Rosey Rabbit Headbands in pink x black. These have been one of the most successful-selling items (in my opinion) that we have in store and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them!

In the video I talk about what you could wear these bunny ears for all occasions, going-out or for just ‘casual’ days. They are absolutely perfect for those into agejo-gyaru because of the colour, as one of the signature colours of agejo is black and pink! I could easily find things to wear with these. If I have any more photos than those included in the video I shall update it on either my Facebook page or Pixie Bunny‘s page.  I really hope you enjoy watching it!

Here are some behind-the-scenes photos I took just before shooting! I felt so flirty and sexy wearing these ears… It’s amazing how something could make you feel like that.

 

 

Top & Skirt: MA*RS / Shrug: eBay / OTK socks: Primark / Heels: Dorothy Perkins / Jewellery: Muse

 

And that’s all for now! I hope you’re having a lovely weekend. Please remember to take a break for those who are stressing about uni/work/school/etc xx

My Valentine

 

 

Hey! How are you? Did you have a good week?

I mentioned in my last post that I took a much-deserved break from uni which was a nice change since I’ve been spending so much time studying around Christmas. As I reward I treated myself to quite a fair amount this month to last me until summer so yeah, I’m feeling very positive at the moment (and stupid for spending money when I shouldn’t). I posted a picture of my haul on my facebook page.

I admit that I felt pretty lonely on Valentines Day because I wasn’t able to spend it with my boyfriend but we arranged to spend a whole day together when I was visiting my home town. This was what I wore: a MA*RS hoodie paired with New Look jeans, and some heels from Dorothy Perkins. I wear these heels all of the time when I go out because they are at the perfect height for me (as I’ve got awkward feet). I wore my GOLDS Infinity top underneath but zipped my hoodie up so that I had a day and a night outfit! The hoodie was super cozy in this chilly winter that Britain seems to be trapped in so I can definitely see myself hibernating in it until summer.

False lashes: Sakurina Fairy Lash ‘Beauty Eye’ & Diamond Lash Baby Eye

 

I was going to leave my blog at that but then I realised… Wait, this isn’t like me… I normally talk quite a lot! So on with the rambling!

Our “Valentines” date was absolutely lovely, I had such a good time. I must admit that I did feel like Barbie when I trotted into Chiquitos – a near Mexican Restaurant that opened up in town – because everyone else was wearing jeans and t-shirts and then there’s me with my extremely pink, fluffy hoodie with cat ears and heels. Whoops. Oh well, my motto is that it’s better to be too glamorous than a slob (hahaha).

I don’t know what that black dot on my eye is but check out my new hat! Hahaha
Me & the boyf as we wait for our food!

I wish I did like Mexican food, I really do, but I felt that there was an overpowering amount of cheese in my dishes. At least I tried it though! Besides, it might’ve been my dishes rather than Mexican food as a whole… I’ll show you what I ordered anyway.

Deep-friend potato skins filled with cheese, salsa and sweetcorn
Tacos!
Chicken wrap filled with Mexican rice, lettuce, cheese and this sauce I can’t remember
Churros

Right I can tell that you’re almost drooling onto your lap so I’ll take it as my cue to leave. Until next time! I hope you all have a lovely rest of the weekend xx

The Leopard Dress

 

 

Hey guys! How are you?

I don’t know about you but I’m exhausted; it’s not that I’ve been doing a lot of work in the past week but because I decided to do all of that work in one night. Last night, actually, and it was probably one of the stupidest things I’ve done.

It’s sad that now that I’m back working and doing heaps of uni work that I’m really looking forward to my next break. I’ve got a party to go to sometime in March so I’ve been digging through my wardrobe and found this leopard print dress. I haven’t actually worn it before which is crazy because it’s gorgeous.

I paired this dress with some heels that my sister bought for me from New Look – something else I’ve not yet worn because of this stupid weather – and some gold jewellery (you can get similar boots here). I think I might just wear this for the party! The dress is made from a sort-of sweater/jumper material so I don’t really need to wear anything extra, especially because it’s got long sleeves. I probably would wear tights though in the evening just in case…

 

Dress: Persunmall / Shoe Boots: (similar) New Look / Bag: Clarks / Jewellery: Muse

I think I’ve fallen in love with this dress. It’s definitely going to keep me warm, and because of the design at the front and back it gives me the illusion of having lovely curves! I’m really skinny so finding something that makes me look like I have curves is pretty difficult.

The only thing I would say about this dress is that it’s a tiny bit too short, so I’d definitely recommend wearing shorts underneath just in case! 

So what do you normally wear on nights out? I’m still trying to think of other possibilities, but I’m not too sure whether I’d wear any brands (like MA*RS) when going out drinking.

Before I go: thank you very much to those who took part in my poll! The results were quite interesting and it seems that people still want to see more outfit & makeup posts. I guess that this post is the first of many in future!

Anyway, that’s all for now. I hope you have a good rest of the weekend! xx

Lizzie Bee

Many thanks to Persunmall for sponsoring me with this dress!

 

See Ya’ Later, Alligator

Hey guys! How is your year so far? Are you having a good year so far? (Or is it too early to say that?)

I did, my year has definitely had a great start… And do you want to know why? It’s because SHERLOCK’S BACK IN TOWN, AWH YIH.

As you may already know, I’m a big fan of Sherlock. As soon as I saw Benedict Cumberbatch’s face on the screen I emitted a little fan-girl scream (surprising my housemate) and continued to do so for about ten minutes or so. I was just so happy to see it back on the screen after goodness knows how long.

But I’m going to stop there because I want this blog to be spoiler-free, but those who have watched it… It was amazing, wasn’t it?!

My New Years Eve didn’t, however, feel much like New Years Eve and it’s probably because it as the first time I didn’t see my family nor boyfriend at all. Living away from home does make things difficult, but it only makes me look forward to going home even more! Can’t wait until all of my uni assignments are done. Luckily I was invited to go out to the pub with my housemate and I went out in ane gal, which isn’t what I usually do, so my makeup was very agejo inspired. I was originally going to do cornrows on one side but my hair just ended up being so curly that it looked a bit weird.

I wore my favourite jeans going out, and this belt that I haven’t worn in what feels like ages. I really should do oraora/ane gal a lot more.

Hoodie: MA*RS | Vest: Primark | Belt: idk soz | Jeans: Quiz | Boots: Dorothy Perkins

So, yes, 2013: the year of many ups and downs and also of being relatively naughty and spending lots of money on MA*RS. That’s all going to change this year! I’ve promised myself to be a Budget Gal and not spend on over £50 a month (including going out to London), and I’ll be referring back to my points system. I guess that’s resolution number one right there! I wasn’t going to do New Years Resolutions this year but it feels kind of weird not doing them so here’s my list!:

1. Improve on my blogging
3. Keep to my gal budget
4. Try out more hairstyles

I’m keeping it really simple this year because otherwise I’d never stick to them. I think I might go into more detail of my goals and inspirations in my next post. What’re your New Years Resolutions? Got many this year?

So that’s all for now! See ya’ later, alligator.

p.s I’m going to be trying new things with each blog post, so please excuse all of the changes being made!

It’s A Love/Hate Relationship

 

Okay I don’t know how many times I’ve written this post but boy this must be what, the fifth or sixth time where I just deleted everything and wrote again? I don’t know. Oh well, hopefully this will be the last time I write this blog post (or I swear I’m just gonna’ give up and have nothing but pictures on it, haha).

Gal, to me, is a bit of a love/hate relationship; yes I’ve finally managed to find a glue that’s suitable for my eye but I do need to make sure I wash my brushes etc every time before I use them. This is kind of a pain in the butt so I tend only to do gal make once a week because I just don’t have the time for it… And mainly because when I doll up I end up taking pictures instead of doing what I should be doing i.e. driving to uni. Whoops.

So I might be posting some coords etc on here but skip the gal make and hair. Right now I just want to focus on my coords before moving onto anything else. I put hair last because I really, really suck at doing hair. If only I had a personal hair stylist or someone to help me out with this!

I’m going to make Sunday my gal day so that I can feel “normal”. It’s basically what I did before I started doing it everyday and then f*cking up my eye and making my skin go all sensitive. Until then I’ll be doing natural makeup everyday. It’s not gal but I’m happy, and that’s the most important thing, right?

Enough of the chit chat and onto the photos! Doing agejo again because damn I love that style so much ❤

I actually really like the photo above! It’s weird because I took this when I turned off my table lamp and it produced a really nice ‘glow’. Unfortunately it does make my face look a little too orange and drown my blusher though haha.

I went for the softer gal makeup as this is the eyeshadow technique that I normally use in my daily makeup.

Top lashes: Sakurina Fairy Lash Beauty Eye | Bottom lashes: KKCenterHK
Top & Skirt: MA*RS | Belt: GOLDS Infinity | Heels: Dorothy Perkins | Jewellery: Muse
Close up details~

So how often do you do gal? Are you all lucky enough to actually have time to do it everyday? If so, I’m uber jealous of you. Damn I miss those days where I can wear lashes every day without worrying about anything.

That’s all for now. Talk soon!

All Loved Up

I had such a good start to this month! I was very selfish and had my boyfriend all to my self. It’s been ages since I last saw him – over a month! – so I always try to spend as much time with him as possible whenever I see him. 

He arrived at mine on Friday and we treated ourselves by going to a new Chinese restaurant, and when I say ‘new’ it just means that it wasn’t Wagamama. We go there way too much so needed something refreshing! Chinese restaurants are also nice anyway. I wanted to be all dolled up and pretty so I wore my lashes! I was a bit sceptical at first because even though they’ve been okay so far I was just worried about being let down and getting a busted eye again. I even curled my hair, which I haven’t done in what seems like ages. 

We ordered this set meal kind of deal where you just get loads and loads of little dishes served in three sections, and boy was there a lot of food! Here are some photos I took really quickly (as we were starving) so please excuse me if they’re blurry.

To be honest the food wasn’t that great but I was so hungry I didn’t care. It was for a really good price as well so I can’t really complain but I don’t think I’ll get this ‘feast’ again. I don’t know, I guess I’m just really picky when it comes to meat but the duck pancakes were to die for.

Me and my honey <3 Wow, my front camera is shocking!

Then on Sunday we went for a bit of Xmas shopping in London! I managed to doll up on that day as well as my eye was fine after our dinner, plus who doesn’t want to look pretty when going shopping? Hopefully this is a sign that this lash adhesive is okay for my uber-sensitive eyes! I went for the agejo look again because I love that style so much. Slowly fulfilling my dreams of being a MA*RS gal…

We went to the Stratford Westfield because it’s the only place I know that has a decent amount of shops without me having to trek all the way across London. It was absolutely perfect and I managed to get a couple of bits and bobs but restrained from getting anything for myself (December is a really bad month for me, money-wise… all of those presents that need buying!) It was actually pretty tiring after a while so we grabbed some tea and chilled out for a bit.

Little things like this make my day 😀

Afterwards was our double date with Pixie Late and Alex! They are amazing people and I really enjoy spending time with them. We get along so well and can talk about almost anything so it was really nice seeing them so soon after Expo (‘soon’ as in around a month’s time hahaha). It’s nice that my honey was able to talk to them too because we all share the same interests which is great 😀

Me & Pixie Late! <3

And that was it! Now that I look back it doesn’t really sound as if I’ve done a lot that weekend but trust me, shopping and eating did take up most of our time. Did I mention that my honey and I were right ol’ pigs and ate lots of chocolate and ice cream as we watched The Mummy? Well, I guess I have now!

Baby Come Back

Oui c’est moi, Lizzie, back from her much-deserved break! Eurgh I seriously needed it as the past few weeks have been crazy! I’m so excited to be back not wearing makeup to uni and doing lots of work… Not.

Anyways, today’s post is about my time at MCM Expo! I was working with my bby Pixie at her Pixie Bunny stall and I had so much fun! I met loads of new people despite working behind the stall, and took part in the fashion show representing Agejo-gal. I was so nervous though, so when it was my turn to walk down the ‘catwalk’ I rushed my poses so I could hurry away. How embarrassing ><” Luckily I worked alongside Jada and Rosanna, or I would’ve died in embarrassment.

Here’s me and my lovely Pixie <3

I was also working right behind Charli and Dom who were working at the hentai store and omg she’s got such amazing boobs *_* People couldn’t stop staring at her, and I joked that she’s the reason why they had so many customers hahahaha.

Oh and something really amazing happened. I was serving one of our customers and she looked up at me and exclaimed, “Oh!” I got a bit worried until she asked if I ran a blog called mysticthorn, and told me she was one of my readers >///< I was so happy! It’s such an amazing feeling, and the cutie even asked if she could have a photo so here’s me and her!

Her FB page: https://www.facebook.com/sachiecosplay

I mentioned that I went on the catwalk, didn’t I? And how I was so nervous that I felt like such a fail? Well, here are some photos!

Credit goes to Leti!

After the catwalk we had some photos taken of us individually and as groups! :3

http://anarchyphotography.co.uk/
I absolutely love this photo <3 Me, Jada & Rosanna!

Okay so I’m kind of running out of words so I guess I can let the photos do the talking.

Me wearing one of Pixie Bunny’s rabbit ears! Aren’t they adorable?

A special mention to Svetlana who I finally got to meet after knowing her for seven years!

You could tell I had so much fun by the way that I’m grinning like an idiot in almost all of my photos, d’oh! Oh well…

Look & Outfit

This was my look for the day ~ I woke up super early in order to curl my hair, only for it to die because our darling England seemed to be suffering from a lot of wind & rain this month >_>

Jewellery: MA*RS and Primark
Top: MA*RS
Skirt: MA*RS
Socks: Peacocks
Heels: Dorothy Perkins

I guess that’s all for now! Wow it’s getting cold now isn’t it? So warm up my darlings! Don’t want you all getting ill or anything (like I did the other week ;_;) <3

Love you all! <3

P.S I actually had to cut down on the majority of my photos because there were so many ^^”

 

Last Days of Freedom

It’s that time of year when the summer holidays are coming to the close and everyone goes back to uni. Thank goodness I wrote my previous post, “How To Be A Gyaru & A Student” in time! I hope that you all found it useful and are enjoying your new year at school/college/uni.

I’ve been thinking a lot about how my bank is suffering tremendously from the amount of online shopping I do, MA*RS in particular. It’s such a beautiful brand but I really need to stop buying stuff!

A new idea then popped into mind: why don’t I do a budget gal challenge? I’m thinking of only spending £50 a month on gal and each month I’ll go down by, say, £5 or £10, and see if I can survive (haha). My bank will thank me for it and I could then use that money for uni supplies.

Ah, uni. I miss it so much so I’m really looking forward to going back and studying my final year! I can already see my social life coming to an end but I’m going to work my ass off to make sure I could still see my friends outside of uni & work.

So I guess my shopping trip with Charli & Emi will be one of my last days of freedom and of spending! Charlie had recently gotten back from ‘Merica and I haven’t really spent much time with Emi before, but I had such an amazing day! Was very girly filled with shopping (although I didn’t buy much). I went for the more casual-agejo look because although I do love MA*RS I really need to search for new coords that don’t really rely on that brand. I guess I did cheat a little in my outfit as I attached a MA*RS bow that I bought recently, but oh well! At least I’m trying.

We met up in Chinatown to have some food before heading off to Stratford, bursting with excitement to buy some really cute cat clothes that we saw a couple of weeks back. When we got there… Well, we couldn’t find anything! I was so disappointed but luckily I found this amazing cat t-shirt that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it. We then had a look in some other shops before heading to Pink Berry for some healthy yogurt.

Yeah… It ended up being not-so-healthy in the end for me! I had my mind set on getting something with strawberries, kiwi fruit, original yogurt, but that thought flew out the window as soon as the shop assistant asked if I wanted caramel yogurt. I ended up having caramel yogurt with chocolate sauce, Smarties, Belgian chocolate buttons and white chocolate. Not very healthy (and ended up being so sickly).

My “healthy” yogurt
My buys: T-shirt & skirt from Forever21, case from Primark

And that was it! It’s crazy how eating and shopping could take up so much time, but it was lovely nevertheless <3 I can’t wait until the next time I go shopping because I’m going to save up so I could actually buy stuff!

Me & the cuties <3

Look & Outfit

Top: Primark  |  Skirt: Primark  |  Heels: DreamV  |  Bow: MA*RS  | Jewellery: Muse

Guess that’ll be it for today! Kind of a short post, but hey, short and sweet ;D

So… Would anyone else like to join me for this budget gal challenge? I’m hoping to expand it a bit more in my next post of the ways I’m going to cut down on spending. Would be awesome to hear your views on this, and maybe some input on what you do on a budget!

Until next time~

 

 

MA*RS Twins!

I can’t believe how the summer holidays have flown by! It’s been a weeks since my holiday in Germany (which I still have to write about), my birthday is long gone, and you know what? I enjoyed every second of it. This summer holiday has definitely been the best I’ve had in ages because I’ve been able to actually arrange and attend meets as well as visit my family a hell of a lot more. 

Me and my lovely friend Tania decided to meet up to do a MA*RS day just two days after meeting for my birthday gal meet, and went as “twins”! I had so much fun, and it was lovely just being able to spend a day eating, chatting, and taking lots of purikura.

In order of the “twinning” to work we tried to figure out what MA*RS clothes we had that were similar but unfortunately we didn’t have any, so instead we planned to have the same hairstyle (curled pigtails) and wear the same headband!

We met up at this bubble tea place; I was a bit early so I had this gorgeous bubble tea (that I can’t remember the name of ;_;) and some spicy fried tofu!

Sipping on my milk tea as I wait!

When Tania arrived we headed out to get some food because I was a greedy git hahaha. She took me to this restaurant that did massive – and I mean massive – portions. Just take a look at mine!

After our lunch we went to take some purikura!

It seems like the purikura place in London is still yet to close down, but it’s obvious that it’s going to. Most of the booths had been packed away but luckily our beloved Japanese booth was still there <3

It’s so hard to choose my favourites so here are my top three! 

And the rest of them… We took two sets because they were on a special offer and chose to get the bigger ones instead of the usual 16. 

I really enjoyed taking puri with her! We messed around quite a lot and pulled silly poses and it was so much fun! I love those kind of puris <3

Me & My Bby Tania <3333

Because it was still pretty early (ish) we thought a little shopping spree was in order so headed out to Camden Town. I didn’t get anything because I’m desperately trying to save money (which is so not happening right now) and I didn’t really see anything I liked. Tania bought some really cute cat tops and sweater though that I wish I had bought in the end! Oh well.

My feet then started to hurt after a while so we went to a nearby coffee place to have a drink and we were there for aaaaages talking about the most random of things! We soon realised that it was getting really late so we went back to the station and headed home.

Look and outfit:

Top lashes: Sakurina Buty Eye  |  Lower Lashes: Luminous Change (Pixie Bunny)

Headband: Pixie Bunny  |  Set: MA*RS  |
Jewellery: MA*RS (Gorgeous Barbie)  |  Shoes: Top Shop

On the train home I was thinking about my addiction to MA*RS and realised that I really should stop buying that stuff. Ever since I started buying MA*RS I began to think that it was the only way to dress agejo when that’s totally not right! I need to figure out some “everyday agejo” coords that doesn’t rely heavily on MA*RS… For the sake of my bank and my addiction!
So if anyone sees me buying more MA*RS after this week (I had cheekily bought some MA*RS bags and purse) then gimme’ a slap on the wrist! Haha.

Anyway, that’s all for today!

Hey There, Birthday Girl!

Right so I was going to write a blog post about my holiday but that went horribly wrong – because I am an idiot and didn’t press save – so instead I’m going to write one about my birthday!

It was a pretty quiet one because I had just come back from holiday a couple of days before so really couldn’t be bothered to host a big party. Instead I spent it with my sister and boyfriend and it was so perfect!

I started the day by dolling up and getting ready because I, unlike all of the other people in the house, was actually awake because I was so excited. I hadn’t felt such excitement on my birthday since I was a little kiddie and it was such a lovely feeling. Then I realised it was perhaps the last day I could behave like a kid as now I’m a proper “adult” ;_;

This was my look for the day and my outfit! I finally had the chance to wear my MA*RS dress from Gorgeous Barbie <3 I absolutely love that shop, but I really should stop buying from them because I’m not a billionaire just yet ;D

Angel Eye & Luminous Change

Now onto my presents! I can’t believe how lucky I was this year, I’m so happy with everything >///< I think what mattered most was because the people I loved were there <3

I unfortunately missed out a necklace ;_; 

I then went to go shopping! I didn’t really buy that much as we only had an hour before the film started. These were my buys:

From good ol’ Primark
All from Miss Selfridge
New Look (sorry for the blurriness!)

Then we had to rush off to watch Monsters University! It was such a good film; they tied up all of the loose ends, and the story was just so brilliant that I really wouldn’t mind watching it over and over. Here’s the trailer if you don’t know what I’m talking about 😀

And now for the dinner! We all had a meal at a local pub/restaurant and wow they really didn’t disappoint. I’ve had dinner there before but it wasn’t brilliant, but they really surprised me this time. I had some yummy steak tehe.

As I was finished eating the waitress came over… With a birthday cake fully lit with candles. I was so incredibly surprised because we were all talking about ordering a desert and the waitress just acted like normal by bringing out desert menus. It was such a lovely gesture ;_; <3

My Boyfriend, Me & My Sister <3

And then that was it! It was a fantastic day and I’m so happy that I spent it with my sister and boyfriend <3 Thank you so so much guys for making my day really special ^3^ <3 <3

Agejo, Lazy Days & New Look!

Waddya’ think of my new layout? It’s so pretty and sparkly isn’t it?
I thought that I needed a new look to my blog because my old one was, well, old. I love leopard print but I was just getting sick of looking at it and I wanted a fresh new start to mark my change in style. I aimed for the more glamorous and girly appearance because of my love for agejo and one gyaru and I think it turned out pretty well! Did all of my graphics in Illustrator and Photoshop 😀

Speaking of agejo… I was going to have a very lazy day but whilst doing my lash review for Pixie Bunny it changed my mind and I dolled up! I really didn’t expect it; I was hoping to lounge around in my hoodie and leggings all day but it was still nice to put on a bit of makeup.

Here’s my look for the day! You may have already seen some pictures on my last post, but oh well you get to see it again (you lucky thing you).

I actually really like these lashes although find that they do go slightly upwards… Shall have to find a way to fix that! And I would probably need to continuously brush up on lash glue as well but that’s what you get for being a gal I suppose <3

Like I said, I really did want a lazy day so I jumped back into my hoodie and leggings as soon as the review was done. It was so nice and comfy *_* I love this hoodie! It’s incredibly warm but I managed, surprisingly. Just shows how crap British summers are -_-

Now before I go, I want to show you some of my buys! I’ve been trying to save up for the past year and the other day I went shopping and saved a lot of money.

For example: see that top in the photo? It was originally £19.99 from New Look, but because it was in the sales it went down to £9! I saved £10.99! Pretty good huh? 

And that bag… Well, New Look sold one like it for £19.99 (they really like that price don’t they?) but I hopped over to Primark and found a similar looking one for… Take a guess… Yep, £8.99 (or something like that). Bonus!

So I think I’ve done really good! I haven’t bought any MA*RS items apart from this gorgeous replica, and because it was a replica it was really cheap (for MA*RS anyway). I hope to continue my gyaru-on-a-budget lifestyle because now I can spend the rest of the money I have on things I really really need.

That’s all for today! Just a little update on what’s going on really. See you next time <3
