Highlights from the Past Decade

This past decade? Absolutely smashed it. Yes, I might not remember everything that I have achieved but I know that I’m going to be ending it on a high doing everything I love (i.e. watching Mock the Week with my hubby and my cat, maybe). I definitely do not have ...

Christmas Gift Guide for Gyaru – for both Darker and Sweeter Styles!

IT’S (nearly) CHRISTMAAAAAAS! I never used to be a huge fan of the festive season as I always deemed it overrated (and over-hyped) but you know what? Now I’m all for it. The lights, the cheesy films, the comfy pjs... And not to mention the endless amount of food, of ...

You’re in Love With the Old Me

I was at the height of my gyaru days in 2014; I finally discovered the style that suited me, agejo (which is one of the more sexier substyles) and I wore it nearly every day. I even rocked up to university in it, and got plenty of raised eyebrows from ...

Things I Wanna’ Tick Off My Japan Bucket List

Lately I've been missing Japan. A lot. It's been over two years now since we travelled there and one of my biggest regrets was that I was really ill for almost half of our holiday there (due to not accounting for 'rest' days), and didn't document it as much, including ...

My Gyaru Journey; The Beginning, Middle, and Now
