Teeny Tiny Trip to London

teeny tiny trip to london, london photo booth, purikura

It was a lovely afternoon; I had just taken some photos for my beauty review (which you can see in my previous post) and was about to take off my makeup and hibernate in bed when I got a text Chewiee asking if I could meet up with her in London. My friend Amber was free and wanted to see me! She had been in England for about a week now but unfortunately I wasn’t able to meet her because of work… So I was really happy that I had the chance to meet her before she flew back home! I quickly caught the next train to London and before I knew it I was sipping bubble tea and waiting for them all to arrive.

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~

Where Did the Sun Go?! Gal Day Out!

Hey guys! How’s it going?

I’ve been feeling really down lately ;_;  I can’t really pinpoint the reason behind it but I think it might be the weather? Could people’s moods be affected by such a thing? Whatever it was, I felt constantly exhausted and just wanted to curl up in bed eating chocolate and watching films.

So I was really looking forward to finally seeing some of my friends that I haven’t seen in a long, long time. However nothing seemed to go right that day; the weather was crap, my hair didn’t turn out like I thought it would, and my lashes just wouldn’t cooperate… I was experiencing almost every gaijin gyaru problem that there could possibly be! I got so fed up that I thought “Aah f*ck it” and just walked out the door and made my way to London.

This was my makeup and outfit for the day! Please excuse how crappy my makeup looks… And my hair… And my face in general ;_; At least my outfit was nice though! Would’ve looked better with my straw hat but blame that on the sh*tty weather.

I have to say that I do love these upper lashes though; they were from Born Pretty Store and really good for that “soft” appearance. You can get 10% discount with my code HORNH10 too!

Blouse: Primark / Skirt: West One / Socks: Primark / Shoes: Forever21 / 

Bag: New Look / Acc: Primark & Pixie Bunny

My mood instantly improved as soon as I saw my friends! I soon forgot how crap I looked and just couldn’t stop talking as we had a lot to catch up on. It was only me and Emmie at first so we just wandered around Chinatown and drank Bubble Tea – I got Mango Fruit Tea – before we were joined by Emilie! I missed them so much. It had been almost over a year since I saw Emmie, and two years since I saw Emilie! How crazy is that?

We headed off to Misato (?) for some cheap yet incredibly gorgeous food. It was the place where Pixie took me last time but I couldn’t remember the name! It was so filling though as the portions were huge!

Then it was time to go to the park where we actually spent most of the day. Even though it was really cloudy it was getting pretty humid – typical city weather – and I had so much fun! It was really nice to just chill and chat.

We saw this policeman statue thing on our way there… I just had to
Slyly taking photos hur hur

Our picnic food!

At one point we got onto the topic of ghosts and I told them about when I was mindlessly scrolling through Tumblr and happened to stumble upon that horrible picture from Insidious. Now I’m not going to post that picture but me and Emilie tried to replicate it ;D

Later on we were joined by Yamii! 😀 Emilie tried to teach her how to act like a thug hahahaha.

That was basically all we did for the rest of the day, and before I knew it it was 10pm and I really needed to head home as I was exhausted (but in a good way).

I hope you have a really good rest of the weekend!

Leaving Agejo Gyaru? New Adventures!

Hey guys! How’s it going?

You may have been wondering why I haven’t worn agejo lately… In truth, it’s because I’ve gone completely off it. It’s really sad because I’ve spent so much money on gorgeous MA*RS items and now I can’t even think about wearing them anymore ;_; They’re just hanging uselessly in my wardrobe. I just wore agejo so much that I felt tired of wearing it, and it’s hard to create different outfits of the same item. I know that I do have a lot – and I mean a lot – of MA*RS to wear but everything just looked so similar so it didn’t really feel like it.

I’m not too sure what to do about it so for now I’m just going to leave it. I don’t think I can bear selling anything, but who knows?

Right now my heart has been captured by hime kaji and equally cute styles. I’m starting to love hime gyaru again, but I don’t think I can go as far as wearing lots of La Pafait or Jesus Diamante. I’ve gathered lots of inspirational pictures on my tumblr but it’s hard to do it without having any hime kaji/gyaru items! However, I’ve told myself not to spend too much on it otherwise it’ll just be like agejo and MA*RS all over again, and I don’t think my bank I can handle it.

But it’s been hard not to scroll through sites and drool over any hime-inspired items, so I thought that the best way to help me out is to create a wishlist! 😀

Sweet Bow Summer Dress / Sweet Chiffon V-Neck High-Waisted Dress / Princess Style Heels / Light Pink Bling Bow Necklace / Hime Dream Bows on Hair Clip / Sweet Denim Lace Playsuit / Lacy Kitty – Pink / Strap Skirt / Sweet Doll-Collar Blouse /

I actually tried out hime kaji a couple of times before reaching this decision~ Here are my latest hime
kaji looks! What do you think?

However, I find that hime kaji can look a bit boring sometimes so I’m going to use the same method as I did for agejo and make it dramatic! Big hair and bold eye makeup! I might even mix it with some elements of agejo like stockings and lots of bling… I could perhaps mix in hime gyaru too >_> I collected some images for inspiration.

… So maybe there are quite a lot of hime gyaru influences

I don’t know where exactly this will take me but I’m excited; I’ve gone back to my roots and my old interests, and it’s turning out to be a new adventure <3

Hope you guys have a lovely rest of the weekend~

Can I Be Gyaru If…?

Recently I’ve noticed that those new to the wonderful world of gyaru are forever asking questions like, “Can I still be gyaru if I can’t wear circle lens?” or “Can I be gyaru with [x] colour hair?” Because of this, I have decided to create a big post on the most popular questions asked in our community.

updated: 21.11.2022

Kogal at MCM!

Wow, what a week! I finally finished uni and I feel so free and now I feel like doing some cartwheels and leaping through the air. If only I wasn’t so lazy; I’ll just eat some ice cream instead.

I thought it was time to actually get out the house for a bit and went with my boyfriend to MCM Expo! I really wanted to make an effort and even though I didn’t have a cosplay outfit I did manage to purchase this gorgeous dolly pink seifuku from Pixie Bunny. I cannot express how much I love this set! It made me feel all girly and cute. 

This was my first time wearing a seifuku so I just had to go with the kogal theme. I spent ages thinking about what hairstyle to do and I didn’t actually decide on everything (makeup, hair etc) until the day. I am so unorganised! I’ll do better next time.

 

I decided to go with a mixture of sweet/dramatic and thought that my new My Melody bag went so well with it! I really like doing the “sweet” stuff but keeping my eye makeup really dramatic… Maybe I should do it more often?

Once I was finally ready I hopped off to London to Expo with my boyfriend! I was actually bursting with excitement because I was able to meet my friends who I haven’t seen in ages. I hadn’t been wearing gal makeup that much so I guess being able to fully doll up made me feel good too.

Was getting way too excited…
Me & my honey <3333333

Unfortunately I didn’t recognise a lot of the cosplayers there but they were still amazing and I managed to take snaps of my favourite ones! Warning: took quite a fair amount of photos.

Jasmine & Aladdin
Belle – Superdebz Cosplay
Cersei Lannister
Think this might be Harley Quinn?
Haku!
Iron Man – Wheels of Steel

By far one of the best cosplays I’ve ever seen, hands down. Just look at how much attention has been paid to the wheelchair! 

Maleficent
SAAAAAAAM!
Sauron! The shoes kind of ruined it though, but he was still pretty cool
Wasn’t too sure who they were cosplaying but they were adorable!
And the girl on the left looked like Pixie tehehehe
Khaleesi!
Yay another person in a seifuku!

After my round of stalking taking photos of amazing cosplays I went off to hunt down my friends and attack them with hugs (tehehe). Uni had taken over my social life so I was so happy to see them all <3

Charli, me & Marie
Charli, Yamii & I
Me & Charli bby! Love this girly <3
Rosanna & Wai-yi of Dreamy Bows!
Laurenn~ I loved her hair accessories
Letitia~
Paulina! She was adorable!
Jojo! This was my first time meeting her, she is so cute
Jessica looking as fabulous as ever. Wish I could pull off “dark” looks ;_;
PIXIE BBY <3

I actually got really drowsy after a while so I didn’t really do much at expo apart from chatting to my friends and then buying some cute stuff (whilst stuffing my face with Japanese sweets). However we did out for dinner after Expo closed with my bby Pixie & her friends and ate gorgeous Korean food! Unfortunately me & my honey had to head home shortly afterwards to catch our train but I still enjoyed myself <3 I miss her so much!

I guess that’s all for now! Sorry I didn’t write much, I’m a bit of a zombie at the moment haha. Hope you have a lovely rest of the weekend! 😀

P.S. If anyone knows the people behind the cosplays & of their Facebook page, website etc, please let me know!

Gal Blogging is Dead; Long Live Gal Blogging!

I first got into gal/gyaru through blogging on livejournal before taking blogging seriously and migrating to Blogger. I started off just posting some outfit and makeup shots and people would give me advice on my blog on how I could improve…

Three years later I’m still blogging but there seems to be a huge drop in the gaijin gal blogging “market”, as it were. It seems that more and more people prefer posting on other social networks such as Facebook, Instagram and Tumblr, and I can count all of the active bloggers (that I know of) on one hand. There used to be tons of gaijin gal blogs! Reading and commenting on other gal’s blogs was the only way I could communicate with them, and it was fun!

It’s quite sad to see that gal blogging has been diminishing and it’s because I love reading blogs. I feel that there’s a lot more to blogs than just flicking through someone’s photos on Facebook. Sure, it takes more time to write a post than to upload a few pictures and #hashtag like crazy, but to me it’s just nice to read what was on someone’s mind or what their day was like.

Then again, it’s just so much easier to “like” or comment on someone’s photo than to read a blog post. You don’t have to know the details; if you like the photo then you “like” it, and if you had more time you posted a comment. Simple as. You don’t have to scroll through your blog feed to then read a whole post of what so-and-so did on so-and-so day. You just look at their photos and reblog, like, comment, etc.

I feel that this lacks that kind of “connection”. It’s quite hard to explain but I just find the whole process of actually reading blogs more interesting. I don’t really like adding people I don’t know on Facebook so blogging is a nice way to meet new people without them having to know every personal thing about you. You just post what you want the public to see.

But what can we do about it? Like I said there are a few people left who still blog, and I’m definitely sticking around so don’t think you can get rid of me that easily (hahaha). I was tempted to start vlogging but blogging is really where my heart lies.

I wish there were more people who continued blogging and bring their own flavour to the gal style. I guess that’s why I love reading gal blogs like Sakurina‘s and Chie‘s because they updates theirs so regularly, even if it’s just an outfit post or of their recent buys. If only I could blog as regularly as I used to! Fingers crossed that I have more time for this blog after uni.

So what d’ya think? Please leave a comment below, I would love to hear your views on this!

Easter Meetup!

purikura, gyaru, gaijin gyaru

Hey everyone! How’s your Easter been so far? I’m absolutely loving mine; I’m currently stuffing my face with my Malteaser Easter egg and it’s so divine. I can actually eat as much chocolate as I want without feeling overly guilty about it because everyone else is doing the same not that I don’t stuff myself with chocolate on other days.

Speaking of Easter… I was off to London again last weekend to meet a few of my friends for the Easter gyaru meet! There were only four of us but I still had lots of fun nonetheless. It was actually really well-timed as I’ve been under a lot of stress because of uni work so I really needed an excuse to get dolled up and go out.

I went for a more himekaji look this time which was really refreshing and brought back memories of when I first got interested in gal. Himekaji was what made me get into the fashion and I used to always want to look like the models of Liz Lisa… But then I changed and tried out all of the other styles so now I’m back to the very beginning.

Thank goodness it was sunny that day otherwise this whole look would’ve gone down the drain! It being sunny really improved my mood so as soon as I stepped out of the house I was already feeling good. After I met up with Chewiee and Kei we headed off to Suki, a Japanese restaurant, for some food. I was absolutely starving at this point so I ate quite a lot haha. Unfortunately I did start to feel a little queasy (and I later figured out when I got home that I had food poisoning, joy). We then went to take some purikura which made me forget about how queasy I felt and I just let myself go and we did lots of silly poses (shown at the top of this post). I can’t really remember the last time I took purikura but I think it was in January when I met up with Chewiee. We had lots of fun and just went crazy! Kuri joined us later on so we had to take more purikura with her! Gosh I need to take some more the next time I go to London.

I think this purikura kind of unleashed our crazy side because then we took quite a few horrifying selfies… And Kei recorded a video but I didn’t know she was videoing hahaha. I’ll let the photos explain what happened for the rest of the meet 😀

Aren’t these waffles so pretty? If only I liked them (but the ice cream was pretty good too)

After that I had to head home as I was super tired and had to go to work the next morning. I had so much fun hanging out with these girlies… Can’t believe I ate so much (and took many crazy photos).

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and rest of the Easter break! Eat all of the chocolate!

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.

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

GAL Sleepover!

 

Well hello there you sexy thang (Think I kind of scared Chewiee)  

After the meet in January me and Chewiee decided to meet up as we realised that we haven’t actually hung out together before! It’s crazy because we’ve known each other for a while and have been talking a lot more recently.

It was a shame that the weather was so sh*tty because I would’ve loved to have worn my MA*RS socks! I really want to buy the ones where there’s only pink lace at the top but I can’t find any anywhere. Sigh. Oh yeah I guess I am breaking my buying-no-mars-anymore rule because I kind of ordered quite a lot of MA*RS a couple of weeks ago… I’m just fed up of forcing myself not to buy the stuff that I want! I’m going to be careful and only spend what I can afford, but I’m going to have fun at the same time.

Aaaaaand as you can guess, I dressed up in MA*RS! Can’t seem to get enough of the brand. Could it be that I’m… A MA*RS gal? *_*

Warning: Lots of awesome photos!

We met up in London and hung around Chinatown eating lots of gorgeous food, taking purikura, and hanging out in Las Vegas where we played lots of pool! I’ve never really played pool before so Chewiee had to teach me, but soon I was getting the hang of it. Doesn’t mean I won or anything though… I was pretty bad. We had some drinks afterwards but for some strange reason that only made me really tired… o_o

Chewiee is certainly enjoying her food

After that we headed to Chewiee’s house and watched Girl’s Life while she curled my hair. On one side of my hair she used straighteners – I think I’ve got the hang of it now – and the other side she used curlers. Now the experiment began… I had my fingers crossed! Getting so tired of my curls dying almost instantly.

And the waiting game begins…

Surprisingly my curls actually lasted until the next morning but it was definitely the straighteners that worked the best! As I didn’t really have much time to get ready I just put my hair to one side and curled the rest of my hair.

Then it was off to get some delicious food at Pizza Express and Chewiee’s boyfriend joined us as well. We had a really good time playing pool and taking purikura! I’ve taken so much purikura this weekend, it’s unbelievable. Because of this I decided to get both an Oyster card and purikura membership card (even though the Oyster is pretty much useless as I don’t live in London, but it was cute).

With Antony’s cat! So cute!

Yummy dough balls
Lasagne!
Mini chocolate fudge cake & hot chocolate

This yummy Chinese-dish thing? Can’t remember what it’s called
Posing at the pool table
Tried out Calpis for the first time! It’s so yummy!

This is basically what we did the whole weekend and it was so much fun! I really enjoyed myself. I would love to live in London because it’s such an amazing place and you can literally do anything there. I miss having a Chinese supermarket nearby. Sigh.

That’s all for now! Talk soon guys! 

 

Our Obsession with Brands

gyaru brands, obsession, gaijin gyaru

It’s true; we, as gals, have an obsession with brands.

I’m really guilty of doing this. Whenever I see someone buy brand items like a gorgeous MA*RS set I go, “Ooh it looks pretty! I want it! I’ve got to buy it! I bought it.” A couple of months ago I bought a MA*RS dress for £92, and it didn’t really look as if it was worth that amount of money. 

Why did I do this? Because I felt that Japanese brand makes you more gyaru.

Living the Gal Life: London Gal Meet

“The higher the hair, the closer you are to God.”

Hey! How’s your week been so far? The past few weeks of stress and lack of sleep was totally worth it; I managed to finish my projects a couple of weeks early, and I celebrated it by going to a gal meet! It was my friend Jada’s birthday some time ago so we wanted to do a gal meet as well as a birthday meet and it was so much fun. We had some bubble tea, took purikura (something that’s now obligatory for a gal meet in my opinion), and then went off to do some karaoke! It was actually really relaxing because before I knew it I had to head home. I wish I could’ve stayed for longer… Stupid trains and their engineering work.

Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Hey all! 

How was your Christmas holidays? Did you eat lots of food? I did! I swear I’ve never eaten so much food in my life, and that’s pretty hard to beat as I tend to eat a lot everyday… But wow I’m still stuffed from my delicious Christmas dinner that my mum cooked up (we have roast duck and pancakes for Christmas instead of turkey).

My Christmas holiday was quite a long one but it was just so good! I wanted to write a post including everything I did around Christmas, so please excuse the abundance of photos and writing~ But there’s no point splitting this up into lots of mini posts because it’ll be 2014 before we know it.

The first Christmas event was the day I went to see Charli! I missed her terribly, as I hadn’t seen her that much at the October MCM Expo so it was lovely to spend a couple of hours trotting around London with her.
We decided to take some purikura as it had been a really long time! I think that it is a tad expensive, but as we were splitting it in half it wasn’t so bad. Although their scanner broke so I’ve only got photos of the purikura half I had </3

The whole set~

Then we headed to our favourite restaurant, Suki! The food is so good for the price we pay, so I was really happy to be finally sitting down munching on gorgeous ramen. If anyone’s heading to London one day, you should definitely try this place out! It’s a Japanese restaurant and it’s amazing!

After that it got dark surprisingly quickly so instead of heading to Stratford Westfield we just had a look around Chinatown and the surrounding area, mainly because it was absolutely freezing and we didn’t feel like going shopping. London was incredibly busy, so we were pretty exhausted even just walking around for a bit as we had to continuously dodge around people who were obviously rushing for their last-minute Christmas presents.

At one of the shops there Charli got me a gorgeous alpaca as a Christmas present! I was absolutely delighted as I adore alpacas, and I’m going to name this one Honey after Charli Honey (her blog name) <3

I got her some Korean black pearl face masks for her Christmas present, and now I’m thinking that I really ought to pamper myself a little bit! I never have time to relax with all of the uni work and work stuff I had to do, but I’d love it if I just had one day a week to do something relaxing… What do you do to relax on your days off? Or are you like me and is a workaholic (hahaha).

That was it for our Christmas meetup! Even though we didn’t see each other until later – I had uni work to do and she had work – I still had lots of fun. I missed her so much!

Outfit & look for the Christmas meetup:

The bright light drowned my blusher ;_; 

Denim shirt: Primark  |  Knitwear: Select  |  Shorts: Reveal  |  Tights: Select  |  Heeled boots: New Look

Okay, now onto event number two! I drove home for Christmas after work and was just so happy to be with the ones I loved. It had been ages since I saw everyone so I spent most of Christmas with my family and my boyfriend.

We didn’t do much on Christmas Eve as I was absolutely knackered from driving, but on Christmas day we dolled up and watched lots of movies! The one we watched in particular was Monsters University. I love that film!

Me & my gorgeous sister!

I was so ridiculously spoilt this year! I got a gorgeous new bag, jewellery, clothes, a personalised, calendar, some DVDs, chocolate… And lots more! I was going to take a photo of everything out of the bag but I really, really couldn’t be bothered. Eating lots of chocolate has made me lazy D:

My outfit & look for the day:

(wooow my sister’s mirror was so dusty…)
Dress, hoodie & jewellery: MA*RS | Belt: GOLDS Infinity
 Tights: Select | Boots: Dorothy Perkins

I didn’t bother to do my hair that day because 1) I woke up pretty late and 2) I was bursting to open presents and really couldn’t be bothered. I literally jumped onto everyone’s bed to wake them up… I’m not a child, I swear.

Christmas event number 3: Boxing Day! Boxing Day is the British equivalent to Black Friday, and it’s where all the sales start. I literally rolled out of bed, and went out to town to hunt done some bargain items but I ended up only buying one thing that was actually in the sale. There was just nothing left for me to buy! I guess that means I have more money to spend later on…

Oh wow that’s a terrible photo! I’m so sorry!

My sister, mum and I then treated ourselves to some food at Pizza Hut and boy it was filling! I can never seem to eat more than a couple of slices of pizza before I feel full, and yet I could eat a mountain of Sunday Roast dinner. Hmm.

I’m not actually going to upload a picture of my outfit as it was really, really plain… The only pretty thing was the MA*RS skirt, and the sweater made me look all weird… Sorry guys!

Anyways, I guess that’s all for now! Sorry for the rambling and the never-ending list of photos… But I just wanted to do everything Christmas-related in one post so that I can move onto the new year. I’m just so excited! Are you?

One final photo~


Until next week!

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!
