I did it again… Pressed “Publish” instead of “Save”.
Woo I’m feeling inspired again!
I think that it’s all thanks to the weather; it’s getting warmer and there are some rays of sunshine… Could spring finally be here? (About time)
That aside, this week I’ve been doing a mixture of relaxing and uni work and, well, I’m feeling really good! I didn’t really have many good nights sleep but I had a long lie in yesterday and I feel so much better! I guess it’s a good thing to have lazy days every once in a while.
My uni work is coming along really well and because of that I feel better when I doll up because I know that it isn’t “wasting valuable design time”. Oui, I do graphic design, and it’s really hard to step away from the computer and not do any design.
I dolled up today because I had to get up early anyways so I had plenty of time to myself and come on, who would want to do uni work from half 7 in the morning? (I actually did that a couple of weeks ago… Was a killer). I originally wanted to wear my new MA*RS dress that Charli bought for me but alas, it’s too cold for it ;_; I can’t wait until summer when I could actually wear my pretty dresses!
Enough talking from me, have some pictures!
I lost my black necklace that I wanted to wear ;_;
On Tuesday I met up with one of my closest friends, Charli! I haven’t seen her since October and because she’s going to Japan soon for a couple of weeks I wanted to see her before she went~ I really miss seeing her, and we’ve both agreed to meet up more often now that I’ve settled in a sort of timetable thanks to my new job 😀
For some stupid reason I woke up ridiculously early and I realised that my promise ring had disappeared! ;_; I had been wearing it for over two years, and I still can’t find it.. I’m so heartbroken because although I had misplaced it a couple of times I always found it within ten minutes. I had searched every nook and cranny within this room (as that was where I had put it before I went to sleep) but it’s nowhere to be found! ;_;
Because of that I couldn’t go back to sleep, and although me and Charli said that we would go all casual I decided to try out sujimori. It was a massive fail so I tried doing some flicks instead, but even then it wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be so I quickly curled the bottom. Apparently having sujimori with straight hair is a lot harder than with curly hair so next time I’ll just curl it.
Tried out a new eye make technique: Cat Eye! Meow~
So after all of that chaos I was ready to go and meet her! We went to purikura first but it was still closed so we headed out to go to Japan Centre but they didn’t have any magazines we wanted, so we went to get some food at Suki (this cute little Japanese restaurant in Chinatown). I ordered Tempura Ramen and had forgotten just how much there was o_e
Purikura was then open so we went and took some purikura together 😀 <3 I love taking purikura with Charli because of how we just improvise and come up with the most random poses ever.
These were my favourites:
Then took a picture while we were waiting for the purikura to print out :3
Her friend then came along to join us and I went to get my first ever bubble tea! They had opened a new place called Cuppa Cha right across from the purikura, and I had Jasmine Milk tea. It was so delicious!
We went to get food again because it was around dinner time and Charli’s friend was hungry so we went to the Little Korean. I had some crispy tofu and miso soup and it was so nice <3 I want to learn how to cook them!
We walked around London for a while, but then it was time to head home. I had so much fun though and I miss Charli so much ;_; Can’t wait until I see her again!
Even though I’ve got a little timetable I’ve been stressing about uni work so much lately, especially because it’s coming to the end of the year and this final project is big and yet I’m so focused on one of the smaller projects as it’s due in first. It’s just so difficult working on something that you have no inspiration for, and holding back on the one you really want to do… Oh wells.
Writing this blog post is a nice breather for me because I love blogging. It’s like a little diary to me and people like you beautiful readers really do keep me inspired and motivated <3 So thank you, for taking your time in reading my blog!
I’ve been getting used to using my Facebook page now so that’s definitely been growing. It’s just so nice to post little snippets of my goings-on without having to wait to post on here!
So my lil’ sis had a birthday party sometime ago, and it was great because it gave me a reason to doll up (aha) and it was nice to spend time with her. I didn’t get drunk (mostly because I was worrying about her and everyone else like an old granny) but it was still pretty cool.
People have mentioned that I should smile a little more… So here we go! 😀
I’m still going through that phase of doing gal with no lens, and another reason I have to add to my list is that Mukuchu is closing down! Yes, my beloved Mukuchu, the place where I would get my circle lens because of their reliability and quality ;_; </3 I’m so sad so I might hurry and buy one last pair…
So how’s everyone’s year so far? I can’t believe we’re into March already… But today’s mini post is about the Gyaru Improvement Meme! I wrote an article for Gal VIP magazine a couple of issues ago about creating a newer version of the Gyaru Improvement Meme… I was going to copy and paste the whole article over here but that’s very lazy of me just not the way, is it? So hop over to the Gal VIP article for reasons why I changed it which is even lazier of me.
You can download the template here but, for those who don’t like photoshop, simply copy&paste the image below and place your photos on top!
And this is my progress so far!
What’s your progress? 😀 Leave links if you’ve used it <3 I would love to see everyone’s improvement! 😀 But please, whatever you do, don’t remove the credits… I would be sad if you do.
Wow this week has been so hectic; I’ve been doing a lot of travelling so haven’t really had a proper lie in at all. But who cares! I have so much to tell you that I’m bubbling in excitement writing this.
First things first, I have a new job! Yes, Lizzie is now working at a clothes store! I feel so much better now because my old job was rather… Well, I got bored, and I really wanted something new with nicer shifts.
So I applied for a new job and got a job offer straight after the interview! Pretty awesome, right? Yeah I was so so happy that I of course agreed to take the job and I had my first shift last Saturday. The people there were lovely as well, and I felt that I was being a lot more “me”. I guess this is a perfect chance for a whole new start work-wise.
I’ve slowly started getting into dolling up daily again and I must say that it’s been too long. I still get those days where I laze around doing nothing, but I think I’ve finally had enough time to think about my future so I’ve made a little plan on separating my uni life and social life equally and to realise that in the end, my happiness does come first. I want to be able to see my friends and family a lot more this year, and with my new job I think I could make that happen. And the reason for dolling up? I just feel good about myself when I do and make more of an effort to face the day.
But eurgh enough of the rambling, and onto the main part of the post! I’ve started doing gal without lens again because I’m on my final pair. Yes, it’s so heartbreaking… My black lens have finally ran it’s course ;_; So all I have left are my gold lens!
I think doing gal without lens is a great way to focus more on makeup on hair but as you can see I only had time to straighten my hair this time.
My look just before I headed off to uni!
I think that my life is finally sorting itself out and I’ve been following a schedule on what time to wake up and go to sleep. It’s been making my life so much easier and I’ve been getting the sleep needed to keep me going. Okay so I have had some nights where I stayed up late but I’ve been doing a lot better than usual!
Blouse, Vest & Jeans: New Look
Heels: Dorothy Perkins
I’ve also been good when it comes to spending as well… And this is my most recent item I bought. It was waiting for me on my doorstep when returning home from uni so it made my day a whole lot better!
So I just tried it on really quickly~ Although now I really can’t wait for it to be summer so I could actually wear it properly *_*
So I guess that’s all for today! Just thought I’d give you all an update on the recent goings-on. I hope you’re all having a lovely week so far, and that you’ve got much planned for the weekend!
