Teeny Tiny Trip to London

It was a lovely afternoon; I had just taken some photos for my beauty review (which you can see in my previous post) and was about to take off my makeup and hibernate in bed when I got a text Chewiee asking if I could meet up with her in London. My friend Amber was free and wanted to see me! She had been in England for about a week now but unfortunately I wasn’t able to meet her because of work… So I was really happy that I had the chance to meet her before she flew back home! I quickly caught the next train to London and before I knew it I was sipping bubble tea and waiting for them all to arrive.

Hey everyone! How are you?
I’ve had a fantastic week (and weekend) so far; I’m back at home with my family and friends and I didn’t realise how much I’ve missed everyone until I had to drive home. I just couldn’t wait to get past all of the traffic! I guess home really is where the heart is.

I spent the first few days meeting my old friends and having good quality catch-up time, and what’s better to catch up then over some shopping and iced coffee? Below are my three outfits on the days that I went out! 

Sweetheart
This was my outfit where I met up with my friend Annie, and perhaps the first time I wore “proper” makeup in a long time. As you can see, I couldn’t stay away from MA*RS for long. I’ve decided that it’s going to be hard to completely avoid it so I’m going to keep on wearing it until I’ve built up my hime wardrobe. It was on this day that I started my shopping spree… Whoops.

 

Top: MA*RS / Shorts: Reveal / Heels: Dorothy Perkins /

I put my hair up because it got way too hot with it down… Summer is definitely here!

Lace & Frills
And this was my outfit when I went to see “The Fault in Our Stars” with my sister! I wore my new shorts and top because it was way too hot to wear the dress with it. I also wore my new shoes as well (which I adore, by the way).

I haven’t really done this sort of style before… It was really “sweet”, but I really like it! It’s completely different to what I usually wear. I followed one of the tutorials in my post “Easy Gyaru Makeup & Hair Tutorials” as I didn’t have time to style it dramatically. 

 Blouse: New Look / Shorts: Spreepicky / Socks: Primark / 

Shoes: Sweet Soul Shop / Acc: Primark & eBay

I know I’m a bit behind but… Have you guys seen “The Fault in Our Stars”? I read the book so I knew it was going to happen but I still blubbed like a baby. I cried so much that my lower lashes were hanging halfway down my face. Not a good look.

Vintage Doll

This was another “sweet” coord where I wore my Liz Lisa dress kindly sponsored by Kawaii Gyaru Shop! I love it so so much, thank you sweetie Enter the code LIZBEE to get a discount!

So a little bit about the dress… It’s absolutely adorable. I felt like a doll pairing it with my new heeled brogues and lace socks, and it wasn’t too hot to wear at all despite it having two layers (which is great because then that means it isn’t see-through!) It’s really good for that casual-sweet style, and so I wore it when I met up with my friend for a meal and catch-up.

Anyway, I guess that’s all for today. I hope you like my outfits! Have a lovely rest of the week, and I’ll see you next Sunday! Ciao~

Easy Gyaru Makeup & Hair Tutorials

There are times where I wish I could do gyaru at work. The thing is that prioritise sleep over slapping my face on with makeup, which makes those weekends for dolling up even more precious. However I do want to be an everyday gyaru wherever possible so I spent the last few weeks collecting lots of easy hair and makeup tutorials and then I thought… Why not share this collection with my readers?

Below you’ll find a whole set of hair and makeup tutorials that are great for the everyday gyaru/gal! I hope you find them useful!

Where Did the Sun Go?! Gal Day Out!

Hey guys! How’s it going?

I’ve been feeling really down lately ;_;  I can’t really pinpoint the reason behind it but I think it might be the weather? Could people’s moods be affected by such a thing? Whatever it was, I felt constantly exhausted and just wanted to curl up in bed eating chocolate and watching films.

So I was really looking forward to finally seeing some of my friends that I haven’t seen in a long, long time. However nothing seemed to go right that day; the weather was crap, my hair didn’t turn out like I thought it would, and my lashes just wouldn’t cooperate… I was experiencing almost every gaijin gyaru problem that there could possibly be! I got so fed up that I thought “Aah f*ck it” and just walked out the door and made my way to London.

This was my makeup and outfit for the day! Please excuse how crappy my makeup looks… And my hair… And my face in general ;_; At least my outfit was nice though! Would’ve looked better with my straw hat but blame that on the sh*tty weather.

I have to say that I do love these upper lashes though; they were from Born Pretty Store and really good for that “soft” appearance. You can get 10% discount with my code HORNH10 too!

My mood instantly improved as soon as I saw my friends! I soon forgot how crap I looked and just couldn’t stop talking as we had a lot to catch up on. It was only me and Emmie at first so we just wandered around Chinatown and drank Bubble Tea – I got Mango Fruit Tea – before we were joined by Emilie! I missed them so much. It had been almost over a year since I saw Emmie, and two years since I saw Emilie! How crazy is that?

We headed off to Misato (?) for some cheap yet incredibly gorgeous food. It was the place where Pixie took me last time but I couldn’t remember the name! It was so filling though as the portions were huge!

Then it was time to go to the park where we actually spent most of the day. Even though it was really cloudy it was getting pretty humid – typical city weather – and I had so much fun! It was really nice to just chill and chat.

We saw this policeman statue thing on our way there… I just had to
Slyly taking photos hur hur

Our picnic food!

At one point we got onto the topic of ghosts and I told them about when I was mindlessly scrolling through Tumblr and happened to stumble upon that horrible picture from Insidious. Now I’m not going to post that picture but me and Emilie tried to replicate it ;D

Later on we were joined by Yamii! 😀 Emilie tried to teach her how to act like a thug hahahaha.

That was basically all we did for the rest of the day, and before I knew it it was 10pm and I really needed to head home as I was exhausted (but in a good way).

I hope you have a really good rest of the weekend!
