My Purikura Collection ☆

Hey cutie! How are you? 你好小可爱! I’m so happy that I finally have time to write a blog post (I’ve had a crazy busy week (; ̄Д ̄) ). Anyway, I was going through all of my super old blog posts of past UK gal meets and… I really, really miss taking purikura. I’m thankful to be able to create “fake” puri but it’s just not the same as trying to cram into a tiny photo booth with everyone o(〒﹏〒)o BUT this has also made me super inspired to create more fake puri, and to also write this post where I collect aaaaaall of my old purikura! And try to write as much as I can remember about each one ♡ Okay, let’s go!

Warning: there’s going to be a looooooot of pictures tehehe.

♡ 2011 ♡

This marked the very first time I took purikura and it was also the very first time I went to London! My boyfriend came with me as he was staying over that weekend and my eyes opened to the gyaru lifestyle. Unfortunately this is the only photo I have of it…

Returning to normality…

Posted on

Just a super quick post before I start getting ready for work but things in the UK are slowly going back to normal. On May 17th we can see our friends indoors (up to two households) and be able to eat in a restaurant.

But there are rumours that we are going to return back to the office at some point, too, and I’m not too sure how I feel about that…

I really like working from home so I’m hoping that we can do some days at home, and some days in the office.

When I’m at home I feel more relaxed because I can wake up, drink some tea, watch some YouTube videos or read some blogs before I get ready for work.

But if we have to go into the office I’m going to have to start getting up early again and start commuting so I won’t have time to relax (and commuting is going to be expensive (╯︵╰,)). It’ll also be hard for me to take breaks when things get super stressful because we’re all just stuck in an office. The only good thing is that I am able to see my friends at work again.

I just hope I can continue to focus on my mental health if we do go back into the office…

Anyway, sorry that there aren’t any photos or anything on this post. I just wanted to get a few things off my chest.

See you in my next post xx

see you decome

Gyaru Card (*˘︶˘*).。.:*♡

Hey cutie ♡ 你好小可爱! How are you? My bby Leia created a gyaru card challenge and I absolutely LOVE challenges (especially if they’re gyaru related!) so I thought I’d give it a go! It’s been a very long time since I’ve done something like this, so it’s nice to catch up and get to know each other again ♡

Your nickname/gyaru/blogger name:
Lizzie Bee


Zodiac sign/blood type:
Leo! And idk what my blood type is…

Your style/fave style:
Himekaji and gyaru kei

Fave era/year:
2009-2011! Although recently I’ve also become interested in 2008… But it’s generally old-school himekaji.

Top 5 Japanese gyaru models:
It was hard for me to think of five, but here are my top four that never really change…

Hello Kitty Co☆de, Bubble tea + fight knight!

Hey cutie ♡ 你好小可爱! How are you? I met up with my bby Amy today and decided to wear a Hello Kitty co*de! It’s a bit edgier (if that’s the right word) than my usual himekaji style but tbh… I really love it haha. It kind of makes me wanna try some amekaji styles or perhaps even Haady (maybe). I’m not too sure yet! Either way, I do like wearing bolder colours at the moment rather than the florals and cute himekaji stuff I usually wear.

But I’m kind of getting sick of wearing winter co*des now lol (ノ∀`) Hopefully next time I could wear a spring/summer outfit! It is May now after all…

Gyaru eye makeup

Casual co*de ♡ meeting friends ♡ Chococat cake

hello decome

Hey cutie ♡ 你好小可爱! How are you? I’ve been really inspired by old-school gal blogs recently where they pretty much blog every day with super casual posts. I don’t know it’s kind of… refreshing? It’s something that I would love to do however my everyday life is pretty boring lol but luckily I have about a million things on my mind so I have plenty to write about (*ノ∀`*)

Today I want to write about the time where I saw my friends for the first time since lockdown eased! Yes, it’s a very late post haha (as this was like… nearly a month or so ago now ( 〃▽〃) ) but it really marks a special occasion for me.

Because of this, I decided to try baking a chocolate cake from just three ingredients and, well… I burnt the cake lol. But is it really a Hello Lizzie Cafe moment if I didn’t burn something????

How I Live My Gyaru Life!

Hey cutie ♡ 你好小可爱! How are you? Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my last post – I’m trying my best to spread things out so that I don’t get burnout, and I really hope to get my energy levels back on track. Anyway, today I want to publish a post I’ve been meaning to write for a very long time about how I live my gyaru life! I did a YouTube video about this a while back that you could watch. For me, gyaru is not only a fashion, but a lifestyle!

Before we dive right in I do want to add a little disclaimer: this is not me trying to say that the things I mention in this post and on that video are gospel. There is no right or wrong, but this is just my gyaru lifestyle and how I personally view the gyaru subculture.

new nail + spring himekaji co*de ♪

Hey cutie! 你好小可爱!How are you? ♡ Guess what? I got my nails done!!! I’m so so happy. Nail salons are now open thanks to the ease in restrictions, so I booked to get mine done straight away. I was a bit nervous tbh (*ノ∀`*) but I had an idea of what I wanted in my head so that I was prepared!

I decided to dress up for it because the weather has improved a lot (although it’s still quite cold) so I went for a cute himekaji co*de! I also had my hair cut the other day so my hair is a lot shorter when its curly and tbh… I’m not too sure how I feel about it… Also, I really really wanted to make a good impression but then everything seemed to go wrong! ( ╥ω╥ ) First, I ran out of eyeliner, then I ran out of eyelash glue! I was in such a mad rush but luckily I made it to the nail salon just in time.

But having my nails done really improved my mood! And here they are. Aren’t they so pretty? (ღ˘⌣˘ღ) 他们好漂亮, 我很高兴! Hopefully I can do my nails more often! ♡

Recent beauty gets ☆


Hey cutie! How are you? ♡ Yep, a bit of a late night post for me but I’m currently going through all of my makeup and accessories to see what things need replacing… And it turns out, there’s quite a lot ( ̄▽ ̄*)ゞ I’m going to buy everything slowly though and doing lots of research beforehand, but here are the other things that I bought recently ♡

These are my dream lower lashes – I used to wear them all of the time back in maybe 2014, but haven’t been able to find them again until now! So you’ll be seeing me wear these a lot in future!

昨天的衣服 ♡ LuluBee meet ♡ tanning

hello decome

Hey cutie! 你好小可爱 ♡ How are you? I’m absolutely shattered because yesterday I had a lovely lil’ catchup with my bby Lauren. We’ve been calling each other a lot over lockdown but it wasn’t the same as actually being able to spend the day together, and I was so so happy (つ≧▽≦)つ

I thought I would put on some self tan and… I haven’t felt this gal in a very long time! 我很高兴! I want to do it more often in future. I just got to find a mouse/water/etc that would be good for my sensitive skin as I developed a little bit of eczema on my shoulder the next day…

Girly co*de + first pub meal in ages!

Hey cutie! 你好小可爱! How are you? ♡ Today’s my day off work so I’ve been doing a lot of cleaning and tidying around the house (I know… Living the dream haha). I decided to dress up nice to go shopping because non-essential shops are now open, and I desperately needed some makeup! I put on a very casual girly look, but didn’t bother with my makeup because why would I put it on to do the vacuum cleaning? ┐(︶▽︶)┌

♡ 10 year blog anniversary ♡

Posted on

Hey cutie! How are you? ♡ So today is a very exciting post because… It marks my 10 blog year anniversary!!!! Can you believe I’ve been writing posts on here for over 10 years now?! I can’t actually imagine my life without blogging as it’s just part of my every day life, and I’m just so so happy that you’ve been here with me on this journey.

To celebrate, I wanna go back through all of my posts and show you 10 of my favourite blog posts of all time! Starting first with, of course, my very first blog post! (Warning: VERY cringey writing here haha).

Mini mcdo date, small biz gets + tiktok plans

Hey cutie! How are you? ♡ I wanna write about my mini McDonald’s date with my girl Amy from yesterday! I haven’t seen her in person for so long (I think maybe October?) and I really missed her (っ˘̩╭╮˘̩)っ

We just stayed in our separate cars and talked to each other through the windows. It was so nice having a catch up whilst scoffing our faces with chicken nuggets (well, for me at least ( ̄▽ ̄))

Cherry blossom date + Liz Lisa poncho co*de

Hey cutie! How are you? ♡ I totally forgot it was daylight saving time last night and today I am extremely tired having lost that hour (ง ื▿ ื)ว But oh well! Today I want to write about yesterday’s mini date with my love where we walked around the time and saw some lovely blossom trees. It made me so happy! (っ˘з(˘⌣˘ ) ♡
