Countryside Flower in the Cotswolds

Countryside Flower in the Cotswolds

Gosh, I love himekaji. I was actually thankful that it wasn't as sunny as it had been because then I was able to wear my new Liz Lisa jumpsuit for my birthday (which I actually bought secondhand - but still "new" in my eyes). I had no idea where my ...

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 ...

Reasons Why I Love Hyper Japan

Reasons Why I Love Hyper Japan

Before Hyper Japan, MCM Expo was the only convention I went to in London but I didn’t enjoy it as much because I wasn’t a cosplayer. It was simply a place where I could meet and hang out with friends but other than that it was pretty, well, boring. But ...

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 ...

I know what you're thinking - Lizzie, didn't you already write this post last year? And, well, yes, I did, and it took a lot of back and forth in me deciding whether or not to publish this new post, but the truth is that those goals suited the person ...

MaskTime Sheet Mask Kit Review

(*Disclaimer: post includes gifted items from MaskTime.) If there's one thing you should know about me is that I have a non-existent skin care routine. I know, quelle horreur. My skin is extremely sensitive and I've started getting quite a few spots recently due to stress but - like the fairy ...

Japan Candy Box ‘Sweet Summer Fruits’ Collection + Giveaway!

Disclaimer: this is a gifted post because YAY SWEETS. Thanks Japan Candy Box! Okay so I'm in heaven right now: I'm currently chomping away on some rice crackers as I write this post, and I can't guarantee there would be any left by the time I hit "publish" (or, to be ...

Reasons why I love the new EGG magazine (+ mag scans!)

Reasons why I love the new EGG magazine (+ mag scans!)

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 ...

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 ...
