How I Live My Gyaru Life!

Posted on

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! ♡

hello

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!

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(˘⌣˘ ) ♡

Little things that make me happy ♡

Posted on
good evening

Hey cutie ♡ how are you? I’ve been struggling a lot lately o(〒﹏〒)o To be honest, I can’t remember the last time I’ve been 100% happy and lockdown is really getting to me. I know I’ve mentioned this on my blog before but I’m just constantly exhausted and just want to spend all day in bed, wishing time away.

But I’m trying to rediscover myself again and to make each day just a little bit brighter, which is why I want to write this post about the little things that make me happy ♡ If I could do something that makes me happy every day, even if it’s just one thing, then maybe I could feel better again ヽ(*⌒▽⌒*)ノ I’m so tired of feeling miserable all of the time!

Okay so here are the little things that make me happy!

Trying out a different no-heat curls technique ♡ sock curls!

Posted on

Hey cutie! How are you? ♡ So tonight I wanted to try out a new heatless curls technique because I’m really hoping to put some makeup on tomorrow for the himekaji girls challenge! I usually just do lots of small buns (which you can watch in my YouTube tutorial) but I really wanted to try the sock curls method as it looks so much easier to sleep in!

Quick outfit collages ♡

Posted on

Hey cutie! How are you? ♡ I’m still a bit stuck at the moment… It’s been so long since I’ve seen my loved ones and to be honest I’m starting to get tired of only putting on makeup etc for the sake of a blog post or YouTube video… (。•́︿•̀。)

So I decided to create collages of co*de ideas so that at least I’d have lots of cute outfits planned for when I’m feeling more positive! This would also help me get a better idea of what’s in my wardrobe and also to show that I can’t say “oh I have nothing to wear” ( ̄▽ ̄*)ゞ

Hello Kitty Co*de, Trying New Hair Rollers + Self Care ☆

Hey cutie! How are you? This is going to be a very short and sweet post as I want to share my Hello Kitty inspired co*de (´。• ᵕ •。`) ♡ My friend Kristin gave me a huge box of Hello Kitty merch, including this beautiful Hello Kitty bag which is the main highlight of this outfit! It was the perfect outfit for walking to the post office, as the weather is still pretty chilly over here despite the sun.

I guess this co*de isn’t really “100% gyaru” but I don’t care – I absolutely love it and I felt so happy wearing it! It’s actually my first outfit that I wore for my Hello Kitty boom hahaha. I love how casual and cute it is! Maybe I should write a post about my Hello Kitty boom but to be honest.. I think it’s quite obvious that I love Hello Kitty (⁄ ⁄>⁄ ▽ ⁄<⁄ ⁄)
