Posted on

EGG, gosh, where do I start? There was a public outcry when EGG magazine announced that they were ceasing publication a few years ago, but now - along with a set of new gyaru models - they've brought out a new mook (magazine book) for their June 2019 issue. I ...

Gyaru Outfit Diaries: A Sunny Holiday in Cornwall

Gyaru Outfit Diaries: A Sunny Holiday in Cornwall

Posted on

Our holiday to sunny Cornwall was one of the best holidays we've had in recent years. It was the first time that I actually relaxed - truly, relaxed - and it was also the first time we didn't have a checklist of a thousand tourist attractions to tick off. We ...

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 ...

Why Did Blogging Become So Serious?

Why Did Blogging Become So Serious?

It was 8pm on a Monday evening (well, yesterday, in fact), and I was trawling through my blog archives, going back to my first year of blogging in 2011. Gosh, it was embarrassing to look at; my posts were filled with emojis, with cringey language like "lawls" instead of lol, ...

Vegan Afternoon Tea at the Laura Ashley Tearoom, Coventry

Disclaimer: This is a gifted review however all thoughts are my own. If you told me a couple of years ago that I'd be invited along to try out some afternoon tea, my eyes would be popping out of my skull. It's one of my favourite things to do (and gobble ...
