I secretly crept away on holiday to Spain (like a ninja) with my mozzie patches on and ready. But OH NO the lil’ bastards still managed to bite me -_- So much for lookin’ good for my birthday… Hopefully they’ll heal up by then. Fortunately they only appeared on the last day so I’ve got plenty of piccies for y’all mozzie free ;D Although my lower falsies fell apart after the first couple of days so I kinda gave up with wearing them 😛
I’ve still got a post that I wanted to do before I go on holiday but it kinda didn’t happen, so will be posting that up soon ^^ I wanna improve in my posts ’cause my recent ones are shite (to be fair) and the quality really really crap D:
I’m not gonna talk much ’cause I’m crap at those really long posts so just gonna spam y’all with piccies now >:] I’m leaving out my daily looks for another post ’cause it’ll be waaay too many piccies in one post~ So everything will be spread out; this one is for piccies of the scenery and me & my sis, another for my make and another for my coords ^^
So we started off with a nice piccie… Little did I know that Kathy wanted to do a silly pose
WHERE IS MY SUN?! MY BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL SUN?! Yeppers, the weather has been pretty shitty recently -_- Eurgh, sooo annoying. It feels like autumn already and we’re only in July! D:
Aherm, aaaanyways… I’ve been meaning to post this aaaages ago but just got carried away with my post about the Delight meet last Saturday, so I might as well just post it now ;D
I tried doing a different hairstyle to my usual curls but it didn’t turn out so well ;___; I wanted to do something like this:
And mine turned out like this:
All in all, this hairstyle didn’t really go so well… I think I might just hunt down for some more tutorials on Youtube, but the people on there just make everything look so easy D: djgfbkfgdkj. Sucks bum. I think I might need to invest in some new straighteners AND curlers at the same time ;___; Sigh, Gyaru is so so expensive… What curlers & straighteners do you gals use? ^^
J’ai essayé de faire un style différent pour mes cheveux mais avec les mauvaise résultats. Je pense que je dois trouver des tuts en ligne et acheter un nouveau « straighters » et « curlers » :___ ; Quelques sortes de « straighteners » et « curlers » tu as utilisé ?
So that was a piccie of a couple of days ago… Now for more recent photos! ^^
I wanted to try out a new technique for my lower lashes without drawing a line on the bottom, and this is how it turned out like~
Oh yes, I went to see the last Harry Potter film ever on Wednesday, and I cried a lil’ at the end ;___; Poor poor Snape… Tbh I cried more at the end of the book than the film lawls 😛

Can you please help me improve this look? I think it’s a lil’ boring :/
Ooh also, I’ve completely revamped my blog! I’ve changed the layout, header image, messed around with some new icons for the side… And also added new pages! Tehehe ^^
J’ai essayé un nouveau style pour mes faux cils aussi quand je suis allee au cinema avec mon petit copain pour regarder Harry Potter ! J’ai mis à pleurer un peu à la fin, mais plus dans la fin du livre 😛
Aussi, j’ai changé l’apparence de mon blog tehe~ Je prefere ce look-ci et j’ai ajouté plus de pages ^^
This is not a sponsored review! n_n~ Everything is done by me and with only my own opinion on the product.
So whilst I was with my gal friends I spotted this glitter palette in Claire’s. It reminded me of the ones they do at Urban Decay, and so bought it straight away. I was, however, really disappointed.
Let’s start with the photos first~
So this is what the glitter palette looks like. Looks as if it’s a “dusty” glitter one, doesn’t it? It is in fact one of those creamy eyeshadows, which I didn’t really expect (I touched it a lil’ when I opened it and was surprised because I was expecting it to be a powder eyeshadow). The colours are really pretty, especially the blue one next to the black~ Something that attracted me to the palette in the first place.
Let’s go for a close up picture so that we could see the eyeshadow a lil’ more clearly~
So yes, the colours are very pretty, but do they show up on the skin well? Instead of putting it on my eyelids and going through the process of taking it off everytime, I put some swipes on my hand instead.
It was very hard to make the eyeshadows visible, and I had to do a couple of layers each to actually make them show up on my skin. And even after that they don’t show up very well, especially the silver. The glitter however does show up, and the black and blue shades seems to be doing okay.
Even though I got some poor results from the eyeshadows actually showing up on the skin I still carried on because I wanted to test how long they’ll last. Instead of walking around with eyeshadow on my hand for a couple of hours I just grabbed a tissue and wiped them a lil’. All of them apart from the black faded away, leaving behind some areas of glitter where they used to be.
So if you want to rub your eyes whilst weairng this, maybe you shouldn’t. Actually, if you’re wearing makeup at all you shouldn’t rub your eyes just in case you hurt them~
Although I have to say that this test was a bit unfair because I had rubbed the eyeshadow. All eyeshadows would come off after this, so I decided to test it by wearing the black shade on my eyelids.
Tada! This is what it’ll look like when applied to the eyelid. As you can see, even the black doesn’t come up very well, and this was even after several layers! The glitter definitely shows, but not the colour. It creates an interesting gradient though which might be useful if you wanted to use this on top of another eyeshadow.
This is what the eyeshadow looks like when I have my falsies on. It does look alright, but not as great as I expected it to be. But at least it shows up!
So how much eyeshadow did I actually use for this eye?
See? It’s nearly half of the eyeshadow! And that’s only for my first time (even if I did use a lil’ bit on my hand).
What the applicator brush looks like after attacking the eyeshadow.
So what are the final results of this eyeshadow palette from Claire’s?
Colour ♥ ♥
Amount in each section ♥
Price ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (as it was only £4)
Overall, I didn’t really like this palette much even though the colours are really pretty. If it had been a powder eyeshadow then maybe it would’ve come up more when applied. The amount of eyeshadow in the palette is very low, although that was to be expected because of the price. Even though the eyeshadow didn’t really come up very well, it did last even after a couple of hours. So it is very good if you want to wear it for a whole day; you just need to pile on the eyeshadow (and by then it might run out and you’d have to buy a new palette!)
What I’d say is that this palette would be put to better use if you used another eyeshadow as a base, and used the glitter on this one to create an interesting effect.
Other than that, I have another eyeshadow palette but of powder which performed far better than their creme ones. So they do do decent eyeshadows, it’s just this series isn’t as great (in my opinion). They are particularly good if you want to buy cheap eyeshadows but of a decent quality ^^
Yesterday I went to a Delight Meet with my boyf <3 to see my beautiful gals! I had an amaaazing time, and took lots of piccies tehe~ Although 99% of our pictures was of us pulling faces lololol ;D
I haven’t got any piccies of me on my own before I went ’cause the plan was that they would do my makeup there to help me improve! They are so kind <3 And no outfit posts either, sorry ;___; But you could kinda see what I wore in the piccies 😛
The plan was to meet at 12am but me and le boyf were a bit late ’cause of traffic and it was a bitch to find a parking space D: But it was okay, ’cause on the way we met up with Amelie, Marie, Emmie and Jada! So we were just in time lawls 😛 And then we met up Elizabeth who took the train there ^^ Her nails were so pretty! Makes me wanna get some lawls 😛 The gals were so so pretty *__* And jeez, Emmie‘s litas were gorgeous! I couldn’t believe how high they were o_O So so pretty~ Seeing Amelie and Marie wearing stuff from Yumentebo, TutuHA and W♥C makes me wanna buy some clothes off there lolol >///<“
After they had dolled me up at Starbucks we headed to this really nice Chinese resturant (although I can’t remember the name of it OTL) and we had a buffet! Jeez I ate quite a bit, and was still kinda hungry a couple of hours later 😛
Jada & Amelie
Elizabeth, Marie & Emmie (who couldn’t resist pulling a face :P)
And it started to rain. Typical -_-
Me, Marie & Emmie
Sneaky photo of us gals! <3

N’aww Jada pulling a face 😛

Us gals! This time without us pulling faces ;D
But then we couldn’t resist 😛
I tried to take an outfit piccie for yoou all but my camera was shitty D:
Me & Jada
After that we went shopping! :3
Later on we met up with two of Amelie’s friends ^^ And then me and le boyf had to head home ’cause we were invited to go to a party at one of my friend’s house ^^
Creeping on Emmie ;D
I didn’t spend a lot at all, which was brilliant! Most of my money was spent on food OTL
But yeaaah! I had an amaazing time seeing them! <3
For some reason all of my pictures seem a lil’ hazy o_O Idk whether it’s because of the sunlight but whatever, I think it looks cool :3 Over the past couple of days it’s been kinda hot and rainy, but yesterday it was beautiful. It was warm, sunny, with a lil’ bit of a breeze; a perfect summer’s day. It was even more perfect with my boyf who I spent most of the day with ^3^
I’ve changed my layout a lil’ bit because I wanted a change and got bored with my old one 😛 The header image is still the same though as I like it ^^ Idk if I’ll change it anytime soon 😛
I can’t wait until I go on holiday, which will be in the next couple of weeks~ So if I suddenly stop posting, you’ll know why 😛 Just thought I’d warn you now instead of later (as I might forget lawls :P) Where are yoou gals going for the holidays? Somewhere nice and hot, or somewhere much cooler because you’re fed up of the heat? 😛
My recent buys~ I’ve been trying to spend less on clothes and shizzle to save up for the Delight Meet this Saturday! I really can’t wait ’cause I’ll get to see near enough everyone in Delight ^3^
I’ve finally got a new bikini! It’s somewhat different to my old ones as this one is more grown-up (all of my other ones had polka dots or flowers lawls :P) so I’m in love with it ^3^
And I know that it’s a bit hot but I really liked this cropped crochet jumper~ Even though it’s summer I still worry on what to wear for the winter ;___;
Pour quelque raison mes photos ont un effet de flou o_O Je ne sais pas si c’était à cause du soleil mais je le trouve cool :3 Dans les derniers jours il faisait du soleil mais avec de pluie, mais hier il faisait beau. Il faisait chaud, il y avait plein du soleil avec un petit peu de brise ; un jour parfait pour d’été. Et avec mon petit ami c’était plus parfait ^3^
J’ai changer l’apparence de mon blog parce que je m’ennuyais avec l’autre 😛 Mais l’image est la même chose car je l’aime ^^
Je ne peux pas attendre pour le jour ou je commencerais mes vacances à étranger~ Alors, si j’avais arrêté d’écrire un blog dans un proche avenir, tu saurais la raison 😛
J’essaye d’acheter moins de choses pour que je puisse avoir plus d’argent quand je rencontrai mes amis de Delight ^^Je suis très excitant >//<
Primark top, West One skirt, New look shoes and socks, Primark bag.
Now, onto the photos! ^^ Warning: Pic spam alert 😛
