Hayfever sucks when you’re gyaru – everytime I tried to line my waterline & touch up my eye makeup it just washes away with tears and boy I got frustrated. It was for a once in a blue moon kind of event; I was going to a gyaru meet! This made me think back to all of those years ago where I’ll be going out nearly every month to see my gyaru friends but work life has gotten in the way so I really needed to look my very best this time. The old excitement of looking for inspiration on tumblr returned, and I also tried out a new hairstyle for the first time in a very long time.
The plan was to go for a picnic but as soon as we saw that it was going to be stormy we opted out and instead headed to Mr. Taro for some food. I absolutely love this place, but this time I only got some gyoza as I had a cheeky McDonalds on the train beforehand (bad, I know, but I was so hungry!). There were only three of us at the time so we waited at Mr. Taro before giving up and heading over to Art Box in Covent Garden. I was really happy when I saw that Tofu Cute were opening a section within the store in London and it didn’t take long to persuade Wib & Emma to go there.
And, as expected, I did do a little shopping in there because how could you not buy anything when you visit such a cute store? I wasn’t the only guilty shopper there – Wib also bought some super cute stationery! At this point Melissa joined us and we all made our merry way to the karaoke place for the rest of the meet.
|My buys! A Rilakumma flannel, Little Twin Stars coin purse, some puccho sweets & gudetama tissues (to make me feel better about my hayfever)|
I really miss gyaru meets; I used to go to them all of the time but the gyaru comm has pretty much died in the UK so it rarely happens nowadays. Me & my friends try hard to organise meets but it’s difficult with a limited amount of people and if plans get cancelled last minute. But we’ll try out best! Do you have this problem in your area? Have you ever organised a gal meet?
Until next Sunday! ♡
