Gyaru Meets

A gyaru meet (otherwise known as gal me2) is where all of us get together and have fun! This usually involves taking purikura, sipping bubble tea, going out for food and karaoke and flaunting our gyaru style!

Eat, Sleep, Shop, Repeat: Autumn/Winter UK Gyaru Meet!

Eat, Sleep, Shop, Repeat: Autumn/Winter UK Gyaru Meet!

A couple of weekends ago was our first gal meet since Gyaru Jubilee, this time based in Central London! It felt so long ago since I’ve seen everyone so when Saturday arrived I eagerly crawled out of my warm bed and into the cold drizzle outside. But that’s when things ...

Crazy Gals and Half-Naked Guys: Gyaru Jubilee!

Crazy Gals and Half-Naked Guys: Gyaru Jubilee!

As I sit here all bundled up in bed writing up this post I feel nothing but love for the gaijin gyaru community. It's been exactly a week and I'm still recovering from a very eventful weekend where myself and my QueenE gals (Amber, Kei, Rachel and Danielle) hosted our ...

Clueless Inspired Outfit + Day Out in Bordeaux

Clueless Inspired Outfit + Day Out in Bordeaux

As soon as I stepped out into the sunshine and onto the cobble-stone streets, surrounded by beautiful French architecture, I knew I made the right choice to wear my Clueless inspired outfit (with a gyaru twist, of course!). I've got to hand it to my friend Nini who actually persuaded ...

Sleepovers, Cat Cafes and… Manba Gyaru?!

Sleepovers, Cat Cafes and… Manba Gyaru?!

I felt like we had stepped back in time when Chewiee and I found ourselves in our pj's watching TV and scrolling on our phones. I can clearly remember the first time we had a sleepover back when we were both students, living in/near London, and at the prime of ...

Galentine’s Day Gyaru Meet in Birmingham!

Galentine’s Day Gyaru Meet in Birmingham!

When I opened my eyes and felt that rush of inspiration for gyaru, I knew that it was going to be a good day. It was the day where my gyarusa, QueenE, were hosting a Galentine's Day gyaru meet and my MA*RS outfit was hanging patiently on my wardrobe door. After ...

Christmas Gyaru Meet with QueenE!

Christmas Gyaru Meet with QueenE!

Christmas started as soon as we stepped out in the streets of Nottingham, head-to-toe in our Santa gear as we headed towards the Christmas market. By "we" I mean myself and QueenE gyarusa/gyaru circle members, and we looked fabulous! We didn't have to walk for long and within moments we ...

I’m Finally Comfortable With My Gyaru Style + It Feels Amazing

I’m Finally Comfortable With My Gyaru Style + It Feels Amazing

I’ve always wanted to be no.1; when I first joined gyaru I wanted to be the best gaijin gyaru in the U.K., and a few years later it changed to wanting to be the best agejo in the world. My aims were pretty high so I bought as many MA*RS ...

Mother of Cats and Inspirational Slumps

Mother of Cats and Inspirational Slumps

My idea of heaven would be to drink hot chocolate in a comfy sofa, surrounded by cats. Luckily heaven is a place on earth - the cat café in Nottingham was just under a couple of hours away, and it was the perfect spot for our next QueenE gyaru meet ...

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 ...

A Day in the Life of a Gyaru

A Day in the Life of a Gyaru

I might have said this a million times on my blog already, but gyaru makes up a huge part of my life. I don't do the makeup everyday (because of allergies and eczema etc) and so I treasure gyaru meets. I realise that some of you are quite new to ...
