A Kawaii Christmas Celebration with Kawaii Box (+ Giveaway!)

I'm dreaming of a kawaii Christmas... And nothing can get more kawaii than receiving a box of Christmas-themed goodies from Kawaii Box* in the run up to the festive season! I've done reviews on their previous boxes in the past and have been really satisfied with them so far, so I ...

Did you just say… The Botanist? In Coventry?

Did you just say… The Botanist? In Coventry?

"I should do this more often," I think to myself as I chug down a rum and coke, it's warmth adding a pinch of red to my cheeks as I felt the alcohol sink into my bloodstream. Whelp, here comes Lightweight Lizzie again, but this time I didn't care. I ...

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 ...

Have Yourself a Cosy Little Christmas

Aah, Christmas. I feel like I can finally get ready for it now that the Halloween hype is safely out the way without a twinge of guilt. Because there's one thing that Halloween hasn't yet managed to trump over Christmas - and that is the copious amount of food. My "Christmas" ...

On Being Your Own Gyaru Inspiration

On Being Your Own Gyaru Inspiration

"What even is gyaru?" I hear people say whenever I tell them about this Japanese fashion. Sometimes I brush it off and say, "it's just this Japanese fashion" and let them divulge at their own pace (usually they then follow it with "where you look like an anime doll?" which is very ...

6 Months On – Wedding FAQ

Gosh, 6 months already. How and when did that happen? It seemed like only yesterday that I was walking (well, more like marching) down the aisle and became a wife that I can hardly believe I am writing this right now. So much has happened since then... So I've decided to ...

I’m A Hobbyist Blogger + Proud Of It

I’m A Hobbyist Blogger + Proud Of It

Okay, I fucked up, again. I allowed myself to get down in the dumps because my lil' blog over here wasn't get enough attention as I wanted it to. It got so bad that I was stressing myself out and just piling lots of things onto my to-do list, and ...
