Of Vampires and Mary Sues

Did you ever used to watch Mona the Vampire? I used to love that program when I was a child, dressing up as her and defeating imaginary monsters. I had an obsession with vampires back then; my favourite film was Van Helsing (looking back now I realise that it wasn't actually that ...

Crop It Like It’s Hot

Crop It Like It’s Hot

I rarely wear crop tops, and when I do my midriff is usually covered up, so when I saw this gorgeous crop top from Tobi* I took the leap and paired it with some "high waisted" jeans as an effort to cover up that part of skin but ultimately failed. But instead of ...

Basic Witch

Basic Witch

Dress from Tobi* There's a time in everyone's life where they dabbled in a bit of magic. I was just starting out in secondary school (so around 13 years old) when a sparkly blue cover caught the corner of my eye, and upon pulling it out from where it was crammed ...

Crazy, Stupid Owl

Crazy, Stupid Owl

When you got the proper glove on but it lands on your arm instead I feel like this should be a somewhat poetic post or something that resonates with you but really I just wanted to write a post about how much I love owls. I could pretend to be a ...

Hyper Japan Summer 2017

Hyper Japan Summer 2017

So, Hyper Japan was amazing as per (even if the venue was a total maze). I got to see all of my friends, spend money that I should be saving, and took part in the fashion show... I couldn't have asked for more! It took me ages to go to ...

Summertime Dreaming

Summertime Dreaming

I got this Liz Lisa dress from Kawaii Gyaru Shop* late last year as a little 'welcome' gift to when summer finally comes around. I waited for what seemed like ages, and the weather slowly began to pick up but it still wasn't warm enough until finally we hit the ...

Introducing… UK Gyaru Circle, QueenE!

QueenE gyarusa! Pic taken by Rachel I have some really exciting news to tell you... Amber and I have created a gyaru circle! I mentioned in one of my previous posts that one of the things I missed the most about gyaru was being in a circle and getting that sense ...

I Left My Heart in Tokyo: Gyaru Life in Shibuya!

I Left My Heart in Tokyo: Gyaru Life in Shibuya!

I remember the excitement building as I stood grasping onto the train handles, counting down the stops on the Yamanote line to Shibuya. I have been waiting for this moment ever since I found out about gyaru - it is the birthplace of gyaru after all, and I couldn't wait ...

Chasing Cherry Blossoms

Chasing Cherry Blossoms

Cherry blossoms are my favourite flower; there's just something so beautiful about their ephemeral state and it was the thing I was looking forward to the most during our stay in Japan. You could imagine my dismay when we arrived and it was too cold for them to bloom... It ...

My Japan Haul – DaTuRa, MA*RS, Sanrio and Many More

My Japan Haul – DaTuRa, MA*RS, Sanrio and Many More

I've been to Japan and haven't bought a thing... Said no one ever! And trust me, I am still on the road to financial recovery despite it being over a month since I've been in the magical land of Hello Kitty and matcha KitKat. It was so worth it, though, ...
