Recent buys and current inspirations

It’s been a while since I wrote a post about my inspirations, and I thought that I’d make a new one as my style has changed slightly… I used to love the “natural and sweet” appearance of Gal, but now I’m more into the rokku style! I quite like Agejo too, but with a rockier edge 😛

My main source of inspiration is the beautiful Sakurina, who has always been my inspiration <3 Her eye make is just stunning and I love what she wears! I love how she does her eyeliner as they make her eyes look huge~ 

Another is Risa, who has an amazing dress sense. It’s a shame that she doesn’t post much about her make ;_;

What I tend to find with Risa’s coords is that they are actually quite simple which is what I love because I’m hoping to create similar looks >//< It sounds silly I know, but I just love her outfits o_O Especially ones with shorts and what-not~

I also tend to find myself reading over Chie & Chika’s posts (although mostly Chie’s!) as I find that they have amazing coords too~

I just love the sweater Chie’s wearing here, as it looks really similar to the one I got from Primark! Whenever I see a gyaru model wearing similar items I get kinda excited lololol~ Feel spesh. 

So how has my style developed exactly? 

Well before I used to look at models like Yui Kanno (shown above on the left), GuGu and Tsubasa Masuwaka for inspiration because of their “simple” looks (e.g. brown eyeshadow and thin liner) but now I go for the more dramatic look. And this is mostly because of my current favourite magazine Ageha.

Ever since Ageha was mentioned to me months ago I found myself reading it more and more, and I’m inspired by their make and use it all the time! I just love how my appearance can change with slightly heavier makeup~ It’s amazing <3 So now I’d like to share a few photos of Ageha (although mostly coords) that I’m currently inspired by ^^

The scans that really catch my eye are the ones that are quite simple but with an attention to detail to it that makes the whole coord a lot more gal. It’s the way that the models wear the clothes too that I envy… Especially Sakurina <3 My current loves at the moment are distressed jeans, skull tops, cross necklaces and denim shirts~

My gets also reflect what I’m inspired by ^^

I saw the denim shirt repeated a couple of times in mags such as Jelly and Happie Nuts (both of which I read for coord inspiration) and had to buy one because I thought it would look so cute! I also really liked Chie & Chika’s coord in Ageha (as you can see above somewhere) so another reason to buy it 😛 Funnily enough most of my buys are from Primark (’cause I’m a cheap skate lolololol).

(You can see the shadow of my hand taking the pics :P)

I have a love for checkered atm! It reminded me of one of the outfits in my old Get The Look posts, and I thought it would go well with some rokku-casual outfits~ And I was inspired by one of Risa’s coords where she wore a checkered shirt and black vest over it ^^

The top/dress is from Select, and my boots from Primark! I was sick and tired of wearing my other black boots all of the time~ And my issue of Ageha! I’ve collected Ageha for a couple of months now ^^

And a cross necklace that my boyf bought for me! >///< <3 <3 It amazingly goes with any coord really, which I love *_*

My MA*RS set reflects my change… Before I would never buy these kinda’ clothing because I’d rather wear jeans, but when I laid eyes upon it a couple of weeks ago I knew I had to get it! I guess this was the starting point of me liking MA*RS~ ^^

Remember my Golds Infinity top? Well this was actually the starting point of liking Agejo and the more “mature” style of Gal~ I really like Golds Infinity, and I want to buy more in future ^^

I’ve also begun to look at more dramatic hairstyles such as bigger curls, and I purchased my first ever week a couple of weeks ago ^^ I would never have considered getting a wig before because I was too possessive over my own hair colour, but now I’m considering buying more! :3

So yeah. Quite a few changes in my style actually the year; I changed my makeup style from simple to dramatic, my coords from girly to rock, and my hair… Well, its still kind of the same but less girly and childish 😛 

I guess that’s all for now! ^^ But before I go I’d like to add a special mention to Amelie for her undying support and friendship! <3 Thank you so so much <3

My week back at home~

Just a really quick post because unlike me I didn’t take many photos of my time back at home, because a) I felt soooo tired for the whole time and b) I was lazy. Really really lazy. I just can’t be bothered to do the full gal make… D’oh. It’s mostly the hair that I cba to do because it just takes so much time and effort to style ;_;

I got a new phone which I love love love >///< But I didn’t know that I had flash on it (*facepalm*) so my photos are really blurry and shizz ;_; Even though I went to two parties I only took pictures of what I looked like for one ’cause I felt crap in the other one D:

Went more for Mode gal this time~ but really really casual form.

New Look blouse, Muse necklace, West One sweater, New Look jeans.

I’m hoping to blog more frequently and doll up as I need to get my ass in gear. I’ve just been so so lazy for the past couple of weeks… And then I found this interesting article on Universal Doll which has really inspired me. I’m gonna’ follow it and create a timetable to become more organised! It’s not necessarily going to be the same each week ’cause of work and whatnot… But I wanna do something to get back into Gal! ^^ 

I guess that’s enough of my rambling… Hope everyone has a good weekend! ^^ 

Such a lazy weekend

Seriously I’ve had the laziest weekend ever. I spent most of my time in my pjs on thurs after our school trip, and was feeling great until-
Well, until I got ill.
It’s sod’s law that I’d get ill on my only weekend off from doing any project work, and I was not happy. Yesterday I spent the whole day in bed watching The Little Mermaid (no joke) and sleeping. I haven’t felt this crappy in ages ;_; Today isn’t any better, but at least I made the effort to get out of bed, and because I got so fed up with just lazying about and sleeping that I dolled up!
I wasn’t pleased with my photos, so I got really lazy (again) until around now I decided to just take one photo to at least put up on my blog. Annoying thing is that my only good photo (how depressing) doesn’t even show my “real” coord -_- So annoying how you get a good photo like, 7 hours after you’ve dolled up and most of your makeup has come off >_>

Was inspired by Kanako Kawabata’s coord that she posted aaaages ago, just found it on my tumblr while I was looking for some inspiration 😛

Her coord:

And mine!:

Jacket from random store, Forever21 sweater, 

BHS necklace, H&M skirt, Select tights, New Look boots

Tbh what really annoyed me was that my sweater was quite baggy, which made me look… Well, it didn’t really flatter me ;_; Think it’s ’cause of all of the layers I’m wearing ’cause it’s so bloody cold over here >_<” Had to wear like two layers of tights and some socks D: Crazy times. I didn’t even go out of the house >_<”

I did my nails too! Actually, I did two sets ’cause I was that bored lololol. They’re both a hell of a lot shorter than my first failed attempt and I can actually type with them! o_O They’re really simple ’cause I’m not that great at nails >_<”

Also, I bought a really cute MA*RS set off the lovely Emilie! I love it <3 Unfortunately I haven’t got any shoes… And it’s too cold to wear it ;_; But will definitely wear it in the spring! (If it ever comes OTL).

That’s all for now~

Off to Wagamama’s, again. Oh dear I’m addicted.

I can’t believe that it’s been over a week since I last posted o_O I remember when I used to post like four or five times a week… Geez I need to get my ass back into gear >_>

Anyways. I was supposed to be going out with my friends tonight but some stuff cropped up so I’m gonna’ be heading to Wagamama with Stef! I know we go there like, every time he’s down in Kent, but he’s hardly ever down so… Yeah. I mean, he comes down once a month now, which sucks ;_; So it’s no wonder that all of my posts about him; I only ever doll up when he comes down lolololol.

I managed to get my hands on some talcum powder and dry shampoo, and I used them to make my wig less shiny! I have to say that it looks SO much better. I also brushed through it so that the curls didn’t look so, well, curly (a tip given to me by the lovely Rox!) so it feels great to wear ^^

I also received my order from boohoo the order day! I’m so so happy with it >///< And I’m wearing it today 😀 I wanted to go for the rokku theme ’cause I love rokku… I seem to be wearing it quite a bit OTL.

Because it is rather chilly I can up with the idea of wearing my patterned tights underneath my ripped jeans~ ^^ Some deatil shots! ^^

Boohoo top, Claire’s choker, BHS necklace (lol), 

West Coast leggings, New Look jeans, 

New Look shoes.

 

And this was the lovely food we had at Wagamama! It was weird though, ’cause we spent less than an hour there o_O Like, we left around 6.56ish and then came back just before 8 o_O The service was just so good though! And the orders came out really quick o_O

Stef had the yaki soba, and I had the karai lomen (?) or something like that, but it was GORGEOUS. Om nom nom. And we had the usual deep friend chilli squid and gyoza ^^
