Sheet Masks + A New Self Care Routine!

Posted on

Hey cutie! How are you? A couple of posts ago I mentioned that I haven’t been doing very well because I find myself constantly exhausted. This made me feel really down because I didn’t have the energy to do the things that I enjoy on the weekends (making YouTube videos, dressing up, etc etc). Lately, however, I’ve been trying to pick myself up again by remembering to take breaks at work, and wearing sheet masks in the evenings/weekends again! The sheet masks I want to talk about in this post were kindly given to me by MaskTime – who I absolutely ADORE – and I’ll also write some quick bullet points about each mask with pros and cons!

Himekaji Wardrobe Update, LL Scans + Recent GETS!

Hey cutie! How are you? I’m super happy because my big box of Liz Lisa and other himekaji items from my dear Emi arrived a few weeks ago and I FINALLY gotten around to posting about it (sorry it took me so long haha („ಡωಡ„)). Honestly I screamed with happiness and just couldn’t wait to open it. I’ve filmed a little YouTube video of everything that she gave me and I’m just so incredibly grateful. Now I have a lot of items for my himekaji wardrobe for Spring! The next thing I want to do is figure out the exact collection that my items came from!

Himekaji Girls! Strawberry Chocolate Virtual Tea Party

Hey cutie! How are you? I’m currently sipping some delicious hot chocolate (with a whole load of whipped cream), having just been to a virtual tea party with some himekaji girls! It was so nice finally “meeting” everyone. This meet’s theme was Strawberry Chocolate and I’ll be honest… I was kind of worried because I didn’t really have any items with strawberry print, so instead I just wore my red turtleneck jumper and a brown skirt.

I’ve fallen in love with wearing layered necklaces again (which is heavily inspired by Okarie) and this one is my favourite! I bought it for super cheap from Aliexpress. I wasn’t originally going to wear a beret but then I saw Amber wear one and thought she looked absolutely adorable so I wore one, too!

Monotone Himekaji Co*de + Making Rilakkuma Chocolate!

Hey cutie! How are you? I had written this blog post this morning but then I forgot to save it so here I am writing this again ( ̄▽ ̄*)ゞ Today I want to share with you my recent monotone himekaji co*de! I really enjoyed putting this look together and it’s a shame that you don’t really see monotone or dark colours in himekaji… But oh well, I guess I’ll just have to wait until more people do it haha…

Snowy Days, Recent Co*de + A New Project?!

Hey cutie! How are you? Weekends have been pretty crazy lately (despite lockdown) as we’re still trying to work on our kitchen. We were supposed to get more stuff done to it the other weekend but then it started snowing really heavily so we weren’t able to go out to get everything we needed. But this worked out quite well as it meant I could have some fun out in the snow (and allowed me to also wear a super cute outfit tehehe).

We never really get snow like this in our part of the UK and oh my gosh, the snow was so THICK! I absolutely loved the soft crunching noise it made when we walked on the snow. Our cat, on the other hand, wasn’t too much of a fan. I wore my favourite Tralala hoodie and leg warmers!

Life lately…

Pink Bow Header

Hey cutie! How are you? Just a really quick blog post today to give you an update on what’s been happening recently… To be honest, I’ve not been doing very well 。゚・ (>﹏<) ・゚。 Self-care doesn’t really exist for me anymore and I just feel so awful. I haven’t worn a sheet mask in ages, I’ve been eating so many snacks, and evenings after work seem to fly by and I never really have time to do anything.

My Himekaji Wardrobe for Winter!

Hey cutie! How are you? Sorry for the late night post haha but I was just waaaay too excited to post this and wanted to post it now! Okay so a few months ago I have finally found my substyle (not that it’s taken me 10 years or anything…) and have since then started to build my himekaji wardrobe, first focusing on winter items. It’s taken a while and I know that I’ve still got a long way to go, but I wanted to create this post anyway to track my progress! I’ll also include some of my favourite outfits with these said items.

Are you ready? Okay, let’s go!

Active Gyaru ギャル Bloggers!

Hey cutie! How are you? So today I decided to create a little blog post about other gyaru bloggers outside of Japan, because there’s been a huge gyaru blog boom over the past few months (and honestly I’m just so so happy). ꒰* ॢꈍ◡ꈍ ॢ꒱.*˚‧♡ I will be frequently updating this list if new blogs crop up, and will put a link to this either in my navigation bar or sidebar. Okay, let’s go!

Let’s Eat Sukiyaki! ☆

hello

Hey cutie! How’re you? So a few weekends ago (well, more like a month ago… Oops) my hubby and I joined Sozai Cooking School where we cooked Sukiyaki together! I cooked Katsu Curry with them last time and I had SO much fun so I was really looking forward to this. I’m glad that my hubby joined me though because there was no way that I was able to cook it all by myself. 

Making Bubble Waffles, New Eye Make + GoGoGyaru New Year Call ♡

Hey cutie! How are you? Sorry I haven’t really been that active lately… I went through a serious burnout after Christmas so I’ve been doing my best to relax as possible! I’ve also been trying to make our kitchen super cute (you can read my inspiration post here) and it’s going to require a lot of work. I really hope I can show you some pictures at the end of the month!

Anyway, me and my hubby have been making bubble waffles as one of the things I received for Christmas was a bubble waffle maker! We tried to do it with marshmallows but… Well… The marshmallows melted way too quickly haha. Next time I want to try it with whipped cream and mochi, or maybe chocolate or something.

GO!GO!→Goals for 2021!

Happy New Year

Hey cutie, and happy new year! I originally wanted to dress up to celebrate the new year but instead I’ve spent the day being super lazy and binge watching the Discovery of Witches haha. But today I thought I’d write up some goals for 2021! I’m really hoping this year will be kinder to me than last year (which you can read about over here).

Okay, let’s go! 👌

So 2020 Was… Interesting…??? A Quick Recap!

good evening

It’s taken me so long to write this post because I just couldn’t really bear myself to write it lol. This year has been HORRIBLE (duh, state the obvious Lizzie) so to be honest I was going to skip writing this 2020 recap buuuuut I’m going to do it for old time’s sake. So, here goes!

2020 was the year I basically lost myself… But then found myself again (thank goodness). And it all started with a lovely app called TikTok. Oh, and lockdown, of course.
