I did it again… Pressed “Publish” instead of “Save”.
Woo I’m feeling inspired again!
I think that it’s all thanks to the weather; it’s getting warmer and there are some rays of sunshine… Could spring finally be here? (About time)
That aside, this week I’ve been doing a mixture of relaxing and uni work and, well, I’m feeling really good! I didn’t really have many good nights sleep but I had a long lie in yesterday and I feel so much better! I guess it’s a good thing to have lazy days every once in a while.
My uni work is coming along really well and because of that I feel better when I doll up because I know that it isn’t “wasting valuable design time”. Oui, I do graphic design, and it’s really hard to step away from the computer and not do any design.
I dolled up today because I had to get up early anyways so I had plenty of time to myself and come on, who would want to do uni work from half 7 in the morning? (I actually did that a couple of weeks ago… Was a killer). I originally wanted to wear my new MA*RS dress that Charli bought for me but alas, it’s too cold for it ;_; I can’t wait until summer when I could actually wear my pretty dresses!
Enough talking from me, have some pictures!

That’s all for today! Just a quick outfit post ^^
Definitely need a break right now.
Even though I’ve got a little timetable I’ve been stressing about uni work so much lately, especially because it’s coming to the end of the year and this final project is big and yet I’m so focused on one of the smaller projects as it’s due in first. It’s just so difficult working on something that you have no inspiration for, and holding back on the one you really want to do… Oh wells.
Writing this blog post is a nice breather for me because I love blogging. It’s like a little diary to me and people like you beautiful readers really do keep me inspired and motivated <3 So thank you, for taking your time in reading my blog!
I’ve been getting used to using my Facebook page now so that’s definitely been growing. It’s just so nice to post little snippets of my goings-on without having to wait to post on here!
So my lil’ sis had a birthday party sometime ago, and it was great because it gave me a reason to doll up (aha) and it was nice to spend time with her. I didn’t get drunk (mostly because I was worrying about her and everyone else like an old granny) but it was still pretty cool.
|People have mentioned that I should smile a little more… So here we go! 😀|
I’m still going through that phase of doing gal with no lens, and another reason I have to add to my list is that Mukuchu is closing down! Yes, my beloved Mukuchu, the place where I would get my circle lens because of their reliability and quality ;_; </3 I’m so sad so I might hurry and buy one last pair…

It’s been way over a year ago since I wore this top! I guess it’s because I later on bought more brand items, but my love for this one has been rekindled <3

(wow this is a really late post… nearly 10pm! Has to be my latest one yet)
Some of you may/may not know that I have finally discovered my style… Agejo!
It’s all thanks to MA*RS really; if I hadn’t started buying MA*RS then I wouldn’t know how much I would fall in love with the brand and the style, so much that I actually want to do agejo for real. I always liked agejo but I was a bit scared of it and that it would never ever suit me. But I guess it never hurt to try it out!
I’m not going to wear MA*RS everyday because I haven’t got a lot of MA*RS items, and MA*RS is an extremely expensive brand so I’ll probably be broke for the rest of my life, aha. I’m going to dabble in other brands to help me build up my wardrobe because it’ll be boring just to stick with MA*RS (beautiful as it is) so I’m going to look for GOLDS Infinity and also at stores near me. Stockings, cute handbags, heels, accessories… Anything that doesn’t break the bank really!
I’ll probably talk more of my goals and things in a future post or even in small posts on Tumblr… Not too sure just yet.
Anyways, enough of that, here’s my most recent coord! I went to Cosmo with my family and decided to doll up for it :3
|Dress: MA*RS, Necklace: DiDepux, Earrings: Muse,

There has been a few discussions floating around about wearing no circle lens… So here I’ve not worn any lens to prove that you can still be gal without them! 😀

Ooh I’ve also downloaded an app on my phone that lets me create collages! Here’s one of my look and my full coord as well as makeup 😀
And a final picture of me and my sis 😀 <3
Oh yeah you know how I said I wouldn’t spend for around a month? Yeah, that didn’t work out so well. I went along and bought another MA*RS dress that is due to arrive soon. I can’t wait *_*
Anyways I guess that’s all I have for today! My eye has been messing up – again – but I still have a few posts lined up for you all ;D
It’s been way over a year since my sister last visited me, so a couple of weeks back we decided that she’ll stay over for a weekend during the half term! I was so excited as it has been ages since I had a girly time with her.
We were extremely lazy though and spent a lot of time in front of the TV with hot chocolate, but on Sunday (last Sunday that is) we dolled up just a little bit to go to town for some window shopping. We took a while to get ready though as I was feeling really lazy and couldn’t be bothered to rush into dolling up (plus I was gonna’ doll up later anyways so didn’t go full-out gal).
|Chillin’ in my onesie|
|Tried out a new eye make technique|
I told myself not to spend a lot but I couldn’t help myself with these pair of shoes *_* Luckily that was the only thing I bought though! I was being pretty strict on myself and I’ve made the goal of not buying anything at all for the rest of this month and maybe until next month. I’m totally going to regret that goal aren’t I.
|Me & my sis <3|
That night we headed to Wagamama and I had Itame and the white chocolate and ginger cheesecake! Was so yummy.
This was my look for that night! Obviously I had the same eye make and things, but I just touched everything up and did my contouring etc.
|I recently bought a faux fur scarf and it arrived just before my sis came down!
It really keeps everything stylish and warm at the same time.
And then that was it! We only had one proper day to do anything because the next day I was driving back to my hometown with her blasting some Within Temptation (which she didn’t mind, surprisingly).
I guess that’s all for today’s post! I’ve got a few in the queue as I had quite a lot going on and a lot to tell you all 😀
Keep smiling <3
p.s. Can everyone please take a moment to post in my poll please! Would be great, thanks <3
Happy Chinese New Year guys!
I know that it was in fact three days ago but thought I’d better say it late then never ;D
My boyfriend came down to see me for the weekend so we celebrated both Valentines and Chinese New Year! We decided not to get each other anything for Valentines because it’ll be our anniversary soon~ So we’re saving up for money for then 😛
Friday and Saturday were spent watching Sherlock – yes I have converted him to be a Sherlockfan ;D – because I had uni and then work on Saturday, but on Sunday I drove over to the Wing Yip and bought loads of Chinese food! It’s been too long <3 I bought tons of dumplings and mantou… I think it might last me for quite a while ;D I was going to take photos but didn’t really have the time.
In the evening we went out to Cosmo! We were originally going to go to this other place but we realised that we had booked it at another city because the website didn’t state that it wasn’t in our hometown >< But Cosmo was still really nice! It’s much smaller than the one in my hometown but the food was delicious. I took full advantage of the Eton Mess ;D
I wore my complete MA*RS set and my new necklace! I was going to wear the bracelet but it’s slightly – ever so slightly – too big so I need to find a way to adjust that ><
I wasn’t too sure if it was okay to wear this because it started snowing, again. Eurgh I thought that I had finally escaped the snow and rain but HELL NAW.

Okay so I guess that’s all for now! Hope you all had a brilliant New Year 😀 I did!
Wow okay this was totally not supposed to happen, but I just found myself with nothing to do and I thought: why don’t I doll up? It’s been ages since I’ve done so so I thought I’d give it a shot. As you may or may not already know that I haven’t really had any quality time to myself as I’ve been doing lots of uni work – so it was nice to just relax and do nothing all day!
But because I haven’t been blogging in so long or taking a break from my work (apart from yesterday’s post) I found myself treading water; I’m not really going anywhere but I’m still trying to get through all of these barriers that are like waves crashing over me. I’m at loss of what to do and I just want to sit back and not have to worry about anything.
The thing is that I want to do my absolute best at getting the grades needed at uni to be a successful designer, and I’m just dying to get there.
Anyway, enough of this rambling and onto the photos! I’m going to do gal around once a week to keep me going for the #dandie challenge on instagram! #dandie is basically a gyaru tag game to where Danyy and Chaudie try to do our best gal look and post it in instagram. Anyone who wants more exposure to other gals are welcome to participate, and it’s created by the lovely Chaudie and Danyy 😀

It actually turned out to be a lot colder than expected so I put on a few more layers!
|Sweater from Select|
I was initially going to put my hair into pigtails because it’s been ages since I’ve actually done with my hair. I have the hair skills of a turtle D: I couldn’t decide whether to keep my hair down so I went along and took some photos with pigtails anyway.
So… I don’t know which one to pick! Which do you guys prefer; hair down or hair up? ^^
That’s all for now~
Okay now that I haven’t met up with anyone I actually have nothing to write about.
Well, that’s a lie really, because I’m writing a blog post right now… But it’s only because I am taking a break from the endless uni work that has been given to me to complete in a measly four days. I’m quite excited about this project to be honest as I’ve been told to create a logo, letterhead, business card and compliment slip.
But enough about uni work because I’m just so tired of it right now!
What I want to blog about today is my look for today. Like I said before I had been doing tons of uni work and normal work so I’ve been lazy and wore no makeup for a week. Seems like an age to me! I’ve been listening to a lot of Maroon 5 hence my choice of title~ It’s from the song Ladykiller which is just so awesome.

|Might not use Princess Eye anymore… They’re so fragile and annoying ><|
I would also like to announce that I’ll be posting more regularly, and shall have fixed days! I shall let you all know what days I’ll be blogging on once I’ve figured it out ^^
Thanks for reading!
*title totally not a reference to Gangnam Style… /cough*
This week has been the first week that I actually put in some effort into my makeup; over the summer I haven’t bothered doing it because I was either staying at home or going to work, and so I properly wore makeup for the first time in ages when I went to Cambridge. Then I stopped for a while, but now I’m back!
It was my boyfriend’s birthday party on Friday – the perfect chance to wear my new skirt! It was my first time wearing it because I wanted to buy some bits and bobs to go with it… I was actually quite excited, I kid you not.
Another reason of why I was excited was because it was going to be the first time I had “gone out” in ages. I can’t remember the last time I felt good enough to actually go out before this (maybe when I went out with the girlies?) Anyways, I had a really really good time… It was so nice to see all of my old friends again!
Anyways, here’s my look for that day! :3

Primark suspender tights, Dorothy Perkins heels
Oh and I have one more picture to show you…
|“My body is ready.”|
Eurgh my boyf’s cat is amazing.
On a final note: I don’t have a clue on what to do with my YouTube Channel. I would love to do more videos but I’m not sure if it’s my thing? ;_; Idk. I guess it’s because I’ve ran out of ideas on what to do D:
So my question for today is: Got anything you would you like to ask me? :3 I’m going to do a “questions” tag or something like that, just to keep the YouTube updated.
Until next time, ladies and gentlemen!
Just a short post of my look! It was the first time I had dolled up in over a month, so I though it deserved to be shown on this blog.
I’m so sorry that I haven’t really been updating as frequently as before; I’m still on my semi-hiatus because I know that as soon as I say “I’m back!” I’ll disappear for like 2 weeks and then would be all apologetic saying “I was caught up in something”. So for now I’ll just stick with my semi-hiatus mode.
|I swear I’m beginning to love this cardi <3|
|New Look cardi, Primark top, New Look jeans,
Muse necklace, Primark socks & Dorothy Perkins’ boots
I actually love oraora. I’m not kidding. I actually really want to try out the style a lot more and try out different makeup styles ~ So this is more of a sweet/oraora look. Next time I would try adding some black for that beautiful smokiness.
Anyway, I have quite a fair amount of stuff to blog about in the upcoming weeks but I’m going to take my time posting them. That’s all for today I guess! Until next time (although I don’t know when ;_;). I love you all <3
I’m not supposed to be blogging right now as I’m in the middle of doing uni work, but I’ve just got told that I’m going to have a (yet again) really early shift at work tomorrow so I might as well do it now rather than in the evening where I stay up late just to get everything right OTL
Lately I’ve been really into the oraora/96gal/tsuyome scene, and even though I don’t have a heavy tan I still admire the dramatic hair and makeup! So I wanted to try out oraora again, and the main reason being was that I received my new Listen Flavour hoodie (which is now one of my favourite items of clothing). I needed to have a bit of “me” time anyway because of being overloaded with shifts & uni work.
full shot of my outfit~
I’m wearing my deliciously-awesome new thigh high boots that Stef bought me from my birthday. Unfortunately when I started walking I realised that the top “flapped about” a bit ;_; Damn. Sucks so much D: Going to try and find a way to stop that from happening but for now it’s only good for photos… Never felt so bad in my life ;_; ’cause THEY ARE SO PRETTY D:
My eyemake; still settling for the gold/black look… Oh well!
Wearing my new lens too ;D Going to be posting up a review soon!
So keep an eye out for it! ;D
This looks was… Different, to what I normally do. I normally go for the cute/elegant appearance but this time it was totally badass and rebellious. When I walked to work to get some stuff (as I work in a lil’ supermarket) one of my work colleagues didn’t know it was me! He was just chatting away over the little stall to me and then when I walked out to buy the stuff he was like, “Whao I didn’t recognise you there!” But yeah 😛 I really do like this look and shall definitely be doing it again!
EURGH SORRY FOR THE PHOTOSPAM OF MY FACE *shot*
Last question of the day before I go: What time is it where you’re at? I love seeing how people all over the world read my blog, and the time difference between us! Right now it’s 14.55 for me ^^
Adios, amigos! Gotta’ get packing for tomorrow and carry on doing uni work. Love you all!
Once again I have split this into two posts – a main post and an outfit one – because I felt I had too many photos for just one D:
I’m beginning to love this makeup style! Think it really lengthens my eyes~ I’ve been trying to experiment with different make techniques, but I found that I always have done this one throughout my “gal” life…
LOLOLOL please ignore the lil’ shiny thing on brow… Idk what it is or how it got there! 😛
Looking oh-so-mysterious into the distance.. Ish.
My coord! I was originally gonna’ wear my gladiator shoes with no socks but it was a
lot colder than I expected >< Damn British weather!
Before I go, what would you like to see on my blog? Is there a particular style of gal that you would like to see me try? I’m open to ideas! ^^
Okay so one of my friends Tobi suggested that I should try out Hime Gyaru, and I decided to give it a go! It’s not normally the type of style I would go for but I was interested in it a couple of months back. I just love how princessy and elegant they were… But it was just too much for me. I don’t think I’d cope with all of the frills and bows and pretty things.
But now that I’m not going to commit myself to any kind of style I think I might try out some not just rokku all the time, but like oraora, hime, onee, mode… It’s going to be exciting! And then hopefully I can develop my own style. I’m going to do more research into each substyle to gather loads of pictures for my tumblr so that I could easily find some inspiration.
I decided to split this into two posts as it would be too long otherwise D:
Like I said in my previous post, I went to London to meet the lovely Charli! I had an awesome time, and loads of fun <333
Here’s some close-ups of my outfit and make for that day ^^
My eye make! Please excuse the stray eyelash on cheek… Didn’t realise until now D:
I tried something new(ish) this time by doing half of the liner on my waterline, and the other just below
to maximise my eye shape.
Blouse and vest from New Look, necklace from eBay, earrings from Primark,
shorts from Reveal and shoes from Dorothy Perkins.
Now that I look back, this outfits leans more on the mode side than the onee… Oh wells! 😛
Guess that’s all for now! Think I might break down the posts into two like this if I’m taking loads of pictures at events and what not… >_>
Sorry I haven’t updated in a while… Haven’t really been feeling inspired to write a blog post OTL.
But anyways, seeing as I’m so behind in things I thought I’d make a quick post of my meal with uni people~ It was during the really hot summer days (although now it’s raining, again ;_;) and I decided to wear my new MA*RS dress for the occasion! I’ve been slowly building up my brand wardrobe tehe~
Unfortunately the day before I had obtained a collection of blisters all over my feet from my new shoes, so I wasn’t able to wear heels and had to wear OTK socks so that people won’t realise that I had plasters all over ;_; So I wasn’t feeling quite as great about the meal as I should’ve done ><
