Oh Sweet Agejo~

Hey cutie patooties! How are you?

I’ve been obsessed with wearing pink lately, I just can’t get enough of it! It’s kind of annoying though because my wardrobe is mostly black and dark pink, not the light pink that I’m looking for, but I’m making do! 

Ages ago I mentioned mixing up with agejo and hime, and I’ve been trying it out quite a lot recently! I’m focusing more on pink and a cute appearance instead of really sexy. I actually really like it >\< So this post will be a series of outfits

Ice Cream Date~
I did this style when me and my boyfriend went on a date to a nice cafe! It was so cold… I think Germany has trained me on how to wear lots of thin layers of tights to keep me warm tehe. I got quite frustrated because I really wanted to try out a new hairstyle but it went horribly wrong. I panicked, and covered it up with pigtails so it was all sorted by the time my boyfriend arrived to go on our date ;D mission accomplished!

Here was my outfit~

And pics of the cafe! It was so cute! I loved the decorations.

Birthday Get-Together
I was trying so hard to look casual for this but still ended up spending about an hour on my hair @_@ doing my hair is an absolute nightmare! Especially when it comes to curling it. I’m going to try out a way to curl my hair overnight by using those spongey-curlers or something. Can’t remember what they were called!

I wore my favourite MA*RS sweater! I love it so much. I think you can wear it so that it slips a little down the shoulders, but I quite like it like this.

Valentine’s Day – Agejo Princess
I also wore this style on Valentine’s Day! Me and my boyfriend couldn’t celebrate it on the actual day as he was working, so we spend the whole of Sunday together
I wanted to dress as a princess for him and wore this pink crop sweater that I bought a while back but never got a chance to wear! It took me ages to pick an outfit… And here it is!

I guess I could call this outfit “Agejo princess?” Tehehehe ~ This is my favourite hairstyle >\\< and my hair stayed curly! Could you believe it?

I made some nails for Valentine’s Day Unfortunately I couldn’t get them off so I had to use nail remover which kind of disintegrated them ;_; But oh wells! At least I can now focus on producing better designs ^^

We went to see Big Hero 6! Gosh I love that film so much… The animation was beautiful although now I’m torn between that and How to Train Your Dragon 2! I love Toothless so much… I’m so conflicted ;_; I think I’ll be happy with either one if they won an Oscar! Have you seen big hero 6 yet? If not I’d definitely recommend it!

After that we headed to a Chinese restaurant! The waitress there recognised me from before which was super cute >\\\< and like before, the food was yummy! Really cheap too! I got the beef egg noodle soup~

Then we went back to mine, took some selfies and chilled out. This is my favourite selfie <3 I wish my lighting and camera quality was better but oh well!

<3

That’s all for today! I really want to do this style more often but first I need to find more clothes for it… Hmm, does this mean I can buy new- NO! No I can’t! I need to save up so badly ;_; I’m such a big spender!

Sigh. I hope I’m not the only one with this problem! But oh well! 

Until next Sunday my cuties have a brilliant weekend & week!

Kawaii Deluxe Review: Ageha Princess Eyes False Lashes

Hey everyone! How’re you?
I can’t believe it’s the second week of February! I’m still thinking that it’s January… It’s crazy! However this means that it’s getting closer and closer to spring which means I will finally be able to wear pretty clothes *_*

I’ve been doing a lot of “sweet” looks recently so when Kawaii Deluxe told me to take my pick from their store, I chose these babies – Ageha Princess Eye! I’ve got tons of dramatic lashes so I wanted to try out something more natural!

Please note that although this is a sponsored review, these thoughts are 100% my own!

The lashes arrived in no more than a week~ this was such a surprise as I was thinking that it would take a lot longer than that. Kawaii Deluxe were definitely ticking boxes so far!
Everything was nicely wrapped and they had even left a note and some sample BB cream. They’re so cute!

Now time for the lashes. After taking a closer look at them I realised that they were a lot less dramatic than I thought. I haven’t actually tried out this style before where the lashes were more clumped together at the ends, so I was bursting to try them on!

I went for a casual look, and in the end I had to ditch my lower lashes because… Well, you’ll see in the photos.

They were natural, yes, but a bit too natural. Like I said I didn’t need to wear any bottom lashes with these as it wouldn’t balance, so I just added more mascara.
Now them being a bit too natural would be a downfall in normal circumstances but for me, who wanted natural ones, they were perfect. I could get away with wearing these in an office as it was a very subtle effect… But for gyaru? No, these are too natural (unless you were heading down the Popteen route where they’re toning down a lot).

Thinking about offices gave me the idea to try these on with my glasses and viola! They were perfect! I had used a lash curler to make them stand upright a bit more and they barely brushed against my glasses. So for those who want to do the natural look and wear glasses, these lashes are perfect for you!

Now it’s time for the ratings!

Postage & Packaging

Absolutely perfect. Everything was carefully wrapped, and the little note was super cute! Got to give them extra points for shipping everything out really quickly as well.

Customer service

Amazing! Responded to my emails within 24 hours – nice!

Appearance of Lashes

I quite like this style of having the lashes more compact at the ends as it’s perfect for the cat eye effect.

Dramatic-ness

I’m still not too sure about these lashes because they are a bit too natural for me, so it’s a low rating from me. You can barely see them on but I guess this means it’ll be good for school/work.

Usability ♡ 

Very easy to use! Great for everyday wear, too, so bonus points for that!

Overall (For Lashes)
Overall I probably wouldn’t recommend these lashes for those interested in gyaru, but for general “kawaii” style these are great for those who are still at school! The teachers wouldn’t even notice them tehe. It was partly my fault that the lashes have an overall low rating – next time I’ll stick to my dramatic lashes!

Overall (Service)

However I would definitely recommend buying from Kawaii Deluxe; they were incredibly friendly and responded to my emails within the day, and the package didn’t take long to arrive at all! This bumped up the rating a little bit, because like I said I was the one who chose the lashes, and they have an amazing range at their store!

Until next time my cuties~

International Gyaru Lovers Winter Meetup!

I had, hands down, one of the best weekends of my life! Wanna’ know why? It’s because I attended the International Gyaru Lovers Winter Meetup! It was the first time that I met gaijin gyaru from different parts in Europe and oh my gosh it was amazing! I had a lot of fun… And the whole losing-my-voice-and-looking-like-a-zombie was totally worth it!

Warning: lots of pictures ahead! And I mean, LOTS!

Kawaii Gyaru Shop Review: Liz Lisa Fairy Tale

Hey cuties! How are you all?

It’s been so cold over here in the UK! I’m actually finding it quite difficult to write this post because my hands are so cold ;_; But it’s okay, I’ve got some tea to warm me up 😀

Today I want to show you these gorgeous dresses that I got from Kawaii Gyaru Shop! The owner, Stephanie, is a god-send. She knew exactly what I wanted and I can’t thank her enough for her kindness!

The dresses that I’m going to show you are both from the brand Liz Lisa, and as predicted, they are absolutely beautiful!

Liz Lisa Organdy Tunic and Sukapan Set

The first one I tried was the Liz Lisa Organdy Tunic and Sukapan Set. When I saw it I knew I had to get it, so I was really excited when she told me that she had a white one in stock!

When I opened it I was amazed by the detail on the material – it reminded me of the patterns on wedding dresses, and it was like I was thrown into a fairytale! I felt like such a princess tehe. There is a tie on the back so you could have it however tight/loose you wanted, with a zip on the side to make it easier to put on.

The skirt has an elastic waist which was quite generous, so that was easy to slip onto. What I didn’t know was that it had built in shorts – this is a definite positive for me because I always get worried of flashing my knickers… So if you don’t like wearing short skirts, this is perfect for you! 

Because the set was made from more than one layer it was actually a bit thicker than I expected, so I think that you could get away with wearing it on cooler spring days. However I got really cold in this outfit so I decided to try and show you that you can wear it when it’s cold too!

To layer it up I just wore some thick black tights and made sure there were other black elements to my outfit. Here I changed my jewellery, but a small black clutch bag would complete it.

Liz Lisa Velour Winter Floral Dress

Now this dress is absolutely perfect for winter; it’s made from velour which is a heavier material, but what makes it so thick is that it’s fully lined. Instead of having any zips it has shirring around the back and below the bust which made it really easy to slip into. It’s very stretchy so great for plus-sized gals!

This is actually one of the very few dresses that I have that can be worn both on the shoulder or off, but I much prefer it when it fell just off the shoulders. It added a hint of sexiness, but looks very cute at the same time!

Overall

All in all, I would highly recommend these two items! I fell in love as soon as I took them out of the packaging (which was done perfectly, by the way) and I can’t wait to wear them more often! Kawaii Gyaru Shop shipped out my items in less than a day after I placed my order… WITH a tracking number! How cool is that? And I received everything in around two weeks; that’s from it being shipped from America to the UK!

Kawaii Gyaru Shop has tons of nice clothes on her store, you should totally check it out!

Until next time my cuties
